The project asks you to advice Herborist on their strategies for local growth in Chinese markets and international expand to the UK
Your advice will need to focus on clearly articulating strategies that elaborate on why and how they should focus on local markets (China) and expand in the UK.
To address the “why” question, I am expecting some systematic analysis informed by market research, and comparison between potential countries. The case study contains a list of the countries that Herborist have already entered and the countries under consideration. The point is that you need to demonstrate a clear rationale for choosing the UK to expand.
To address the “how” question, I would like to see some level of strategic planning. You should consider entry mode for the UK’s expansion, growth strategy, marketing strategy and strategy implementation for both China and UK . Please make sure that you consider Herborist’s current strategy when advising on their future strategy of international expansion.
This part includes the introduction of the Herborist company and the aim of the writing.
