Globalization in business

There is this phenomenon where people are connected throughout the world, while
money, communication and goods travel faster and easier than ever. Globalization
may have many faces, some of them positive and others negative, depending on
the point of view. There are groups and even countries throughout the world
opposing globalization as the greatest fear for their integrity. New forms of business
throughout the past and the current decade changed our environment in so many
ways, including the areas of education and politics, where the ways of economy are
completely separate issue. This has been probably the fastest pacing step in the
change of human structure. Everything tends to get global.

The today’s market influences business on all four side of the world with its
tripartite forces of globalization, information and communications technology and
liberalization of trade. Free trading improves integration on economy lever while
national borders melt under the storm of information and technology revolutions,
which bring people closer and together faster than ever before. Geography in
globalization becomes quite insignificant factor. The refreshing ideas and brand new
initiatives are what make today’s economy a culture of innovation and open

We live in demanding times where new form of business and worldwide economy
strives to bring out the private sector as one of the most significant indicators of
fast and fresh economic development; on the other hand, the public sector is
rapidly reducing and losing both importance and influence, not being a willing
subject to change from within. The world of globalized business approach stands for
coherence, down-to-earth visions from the skilled leaders, who bring their company
strategies onto competing forces on the new market. New imperatives in the
world’s business today are integration, synergy, competitiveness, advantage and
opportunity. Synergy is on wherever people accept the inevitability of cooperation
and where various parts will work together for a better outcome and overall quality;
synergy will encourage teamwork and teamwork will always bring better results
comparing to individual approach towards the ultimate aim.

The synergy, which is a clearly one of the founding stones of globalization both in
business and elsewhere, promotes flexible approach to the problem, active
responses to various challenges of the new markets and opportunities in today’s
economy, where only a quality, plan and team work may survive. Every person
related to business and economy today strives to change their mindsets to the
international frequency, all in order to easily understand and accept most important
conditions for success in a business today.

Various enterprises with similar orientation cluster and change through their
merging, guaranteeing more exquisite, fresh and new ideas in directing the
business process from the start to the final product – whatever it happens to be.
This ongoing process of globalization integrates all areas of human activities,
connecting their cultures, habits and economies into a larger and richer engine,
which can successfully run the race of the new business era.
It is not strange that the very term “globalization” is sometimes applied strictly as
an economic term, due to its specifics in corporate economies and creating the
international economy. Trade, the flow of capital, migration of workers, enterprises,
goods and investments is spreading technologies farther and faster than before.
Globalization is often explained as the planned mixture of economies, technologies,
political and even various biological factors, it can very frequently relate to rapid
exchange of ideas and languages through so-called acculturation, mixing habits,
beliefs, behavior and many other segments which aimed to simplify the world and
bring people closer in every sense of the world.

Various international agreements changed the business face of today, incessantly

striking down the barriers between nations and their economies, enabling the
under-developed ones to benefit from the developed. Many nations and countries
actually benefit from such agreements on a higher level than understood by those
who constantly advertise their almost xenophobic fear from globalization.

Some of the greatest benefits globalization had brought to various businesses in

various aspects were surely free trade zones with practically no rates at all, smaller
costs to transportation, cutbacks in capital controls, global corporations, better
organization of human resources across the world and so much more.

However and in relation to the pattern, globalization can be both a positive and a
negative phenomenon. Whereas it can easily mean melting and merger of cultures
to the point where the small and economically significant ones are lost, it surely
provides more applicable package of work, products, markets, knowledge,
technology and industry, not to mention the benefit to the under developed
economies. Ideas, people and money fluctuate on a daily basis, providing fresh
products for the market on daily basis. Globalization in its best sense improves and
refreshes the market by modernizing and creating both booming and blooming
economies out of the cultures yet to be developed in the sense of international
