Globalize Local Knowledge
Several midsize and large firms have made themselves multinational and have continued to globalize their companies' operations because doing so can result in a cost advantage over competitors, and a differentiation advantage in terms of gaining innovative ideas and other such valuable information, extending an organization's focus toward continuously growing foreign markets, and gaining access to effective R&D facilities that promote the utilization of technological advances, new expert ideas, and product concepts. While other companies may have other motives for venturing into globalization, such as acquiring a foreign partner and searching for potential managerial talent, a company's tasks can be distributed by means of a parallel buildup and through a system of operations throughout other geographic, socio-political, and cultural areas.
