Planning is the key to a successful trip. All potential
intermediaries will be pre-screened, pre-tested and
proven as viable business partners.
The objective is to visit enough relevant potential
partners, factories, distributor networks and other
logistical links to establish benchmarks that allow
us to make intelligent decisions about doing business
in China as it pertains to our China strategy.
The trip is busy, yet relevant. You will meet a lot
of people, visit a lot of facilities, and go to several
cities. Your experience will be educational, safe,
healthy, comfortable and fun – but not relaxing.
While your trip will be planned and developed specifically
for your company, we have prepared a typical
trip for a manufacturing company to give you an
idea of the level of activity involved.
Your China Trip will provide important answers toward
implementing your successful China strategy.
What should be outsourced, manufactured or sold
You will gain an appreciation for critical factors
for success – communication, culture, education,
resources, and people.
What operations are difficult for China?
What operations should not be done in China?
You will gain an understanding of China capabilities
- manufacturing, raw materials, workforce, intellectual
manpower, and quality control in order to build
your US team to manage your China strategy.
You will be able to evaluate potential partners or
factories according to their management style, quality,
technical ability, communication skill, flexibility,
ease of doing business and trustworthiness.
You will be able to determine if an intermediary is
needed for better communications
and quality assurance, or if you will be able to deal
directly with factories or distributors.
And ultimately, you will be able to move forward to
implement a successful
strategy to take advantage of China as a resource.
