The paper "Five Drivers of Globalization and the International Forces - Dell Corporation " is a perfect example of a business case study. The term ‘ globalization’ covers a broad range of different political, cultural and economic movements and has been capable of becoming of the trendiest buzzwords of modern political as well as academic debate. Globalization refers to the combination of economic and societal collaboration via cross country flows of information, ideas, technologies, goods, services, capital, finance and people. The numerous dimensions of cross border coordination can occur in terms of varied factors such as cultural, political, social and economic (GRIN, 2005).
According to the standard theory, international trade theory leads to a share of resources being consistent with the corporate advantage. This further leads to specialization thereby enhancing the output. The quick progress in the capital market is because of globalization. Along with the benefits offered by globalization, there are major concerns related to it. The first concern is related to the fact that globalization leads to a more immoral dispersion of income among the countries and within the countries. The second concern is related to the loss of national autonomy and the countries are finding it highly complex to pursue independent domestic policies (Rangarajan, 2006).
Dell Corporation has been analysed for the purpose of this study. For the last 26 years, Dell has been capable of authorizing countries, communities, customers as well as people all over the globe to make use of the technology so that they can realize their dreams. The company tends to value its customers and thus aims at delivering the products and services according to the needs and the wants of the customers (Dell, 2012).
The main objective of the study is to identify the five main kinds of drivers of globalization in general and the main drivers for Dell Corporation. The paper will try to analyze the international financial and economic forces, physical and environmental forces, international political and legal forces, international socio-cultural and labor forces and international competitive forces and subsequently these forces will be applied to Dell Corporation.
