It is a imitator with fast response and absorbs the new technology to its own design. During this strategy, Samsung spent lots of money to cultivate international talents to break the cultural barriers. The theory of speed management guarantees its capture of the opportunity and militarization management mode makes sure the execution. The family managing mode propels the managers to be more responsible. These are all superiority over other competitors in the international competition.
It has been an essential strategy for top enterprises to expand their business to be internationality. The analysis based on the company itself is the first step in the consideration to expand overseas.( John, Lee & Daniel , 2014) For Samsung, it has been a international corporation of great influence. But this cannot be the excuse to ignore the analysis. The advanced research and development capacity and strong backup guarantee its international status. The development of modern economy and improvement of life quality are conducive to its further expansion. On the contrary, what they are proud of can also be their obstacle. Too much cost on research and various kinds of product make the management more hard.
