Success Strategies and Knowledge Transfer in Cross-Border Consulting Operations

 

Success Strategies and Knowledge Transfer in Cross-Border Consulting Operations analyzes the international operations of consulting firms.

Apart from developing a theoretical framework which differs from traditional theories about international trade, the main issues analyzed in this book are:

  • Success determinants when tendering for international consulting contracts.
  • The choice between exports, acquisition of a local firm or establishing a greenfield office when entering foreign markets.
  • The extent and nature of knowledge transfer to emerging markets.The role of development agencies in international consulting projects.
  • The trend towards, and consequences of, more management services included in international projects.
  • The effects on competition when state-owned consulting firms are allowed to operate in the international market.

The empirical analysis of these issues is based on a unique database of individual tender documents which Swedish consulting firms have submitted abroad..

This book explores the complex and ever-changing relationship between the European Union and its member states. The recent surge in tension in this relationship has been prompted by the actions of some member state governments as they question fundamental EU values and principles and refuse to implement common decisions seemingly on the basis of narrowly defined national interests.
