Emergent strategies, first proposed by Henry Mintzberg of McGill University, arise as a result of an organizationâ€™s response to unexpected events as a strategy is being implemented. In Mintzbergâ€™s terms, an intended strategy is akin to the â€œbestâ€ strategy that was developed in Section 6.4 and chosen in Section 7.2. Such a strategy, when implemented, is then called a deliberate strategyâ€ (Abraham, 2012, Chapter 9). The difference between the two strategies is, deliberate strategies are planned before the execution while emergent strategies happen during operational execution. The organization is learning from their experience as they go, developing emergent strategy.How might emergent help with a future strategic planning process?An organization learns from its operational execution figuring out what they did wrong or right or from an unexpected situation that comes up during their past. They can use those experience from the past to prepare for the next one on updated strategic planning.In your opinion, what are the potential consequences of ignoring emergent strategies?In my opinion, if an organization ignore developing emergent strategies, they will end up failing by not being able to adapt to change. They should accept the fact that during operational execution, unexpected things happen. They should take advantage of those situations by learning to adapt to their organization to grow.ReferencesAbraham, S. C. (2012). Strategic Management for Organizations.

In their study, Naldemirci et al. (2017), created several emergent strategies to handle situations that were not planned for; they claim that having emergent strategies complements deliberate strategies to handling complex situations. In strategic planning for the future, an organization should allow itself to be open to the idea of being flexible and making changes as time passes and as new information presents itself. According to Abraham (2012), organizations are able to learn from its customers and innovate when they are open to emergent strategies. In my opinion, ignoring emergent strategies would hold an organization back from progressing in a competitive industry. They must adapt to the changing economy and customer needs and make changes as they see fit.ResourcesAbraham, S. C. (2012). Strategic management for organizations [Electronic version].

A multi-domestic strategy is used when customers from different markets and countries have different demands of the type of product or service the company offers (Abraham, 2012). Typically when international companies are selling a specific product, each market might have a different set of features that are important to them, and require the organization to develop products that meet each of their specific needs. Organizations can identify the need to change product by conducting market research that collects data and intelligence to specify each consumerâ€™s needs or demands. For instance, appliances are different sizes depending on where they will be located. If each country has a different blueprint of what their standard size appliance should be, it will require the organization to take a multi-domestic approach when expanding their product to different markets. Forming strategic alliances can be beneficial for international markets as they allow for multiple companies to share risks and resources (Abraham, 2012). When the right alliance is identified it can lead the organization to success in the new market. Each strategy is similar in that companies are trying to learn as much as they can about the new international market they are entering, to ensure they are successful. A multi-domestic strategy is different from a strategic alliance in that the multi-domestic strategy focuses more on the products sold, whereas a strategic alliance focuses on establishing beneficial relationships in new markets. It would depend on the companyâ€™s situation to know which approach to take in an international market. The example of appliances would use the multi-domestic strategy. A strategic alliance would be when a new organization moves into a new market and relies on their host partner to provide details of the host market, industry and competitive conditions, legal and social norms, and cultural differences of the host country (Abraham, 2012).ResourcesAbraham, S.

Most of all, it needs a distributor or importer in the host country that acts as the customer and places the ordersâ€ (Abraham, 2012, Chapter 11). Exporters do not have a factory in other countries. They produce their products in the United States and pay the cost of shipping and taxes into their customers abroad. They usually have their customers abroad and with the help of a distributor to deliver their products.Market Expansionâ€œMarket expansion, unlike exporting, does require a presence in the foreign market. Market expansion is a way of ending dependence on a foreign distributor or importer, which doesnâ€™t release any market information, and eliminating the markup it charges â€œ(Abraham, 2012, Chapter 11). This strategy is the opposite of exporting, market expansion builds its manufacturing plant abroad. It saves them paying the cost of shipping their products and also take advantage of paying cheap labor from foreign countries.Discuss why organizations may choose one strategy over another when expanding into the international market.An organization who wants to expand to international market might prepare market expansion over exporting because they hire a local person from that nation which may save them money because of cheaper to pay them in their own country. Company may also prevent paying taxes that the US impose to them if they manufacture their product in the United States.ReferencesAbraham, S. C. (2012). Strategic Management for Organizations.
