Each accused the o the r of creating a problem that was harming business throughout the region. Both sides refused to sit down to mitigate the dispute, the imbroglio continued and the public turned on both brands. Amid escalating public fury, he remained unflappable, calmly advising his client company on how best to resolve the situation and protect the hard-fought reputation of its brand.
He monitored newspaper and television coverage minute by minute. In time, the composed approach Hinojosa advised showed signs of success. Some of the best-known corporations in the world call on Hinojosa when the y want to burnish the ir image or prevent it from becoming tarnished in South America.
His public relations acumen, toge the r with his vast network of media and corporate contacts and a well-versed understanding of the distinctive cultures of South America, have propelled Hinojosa to the top tiers of public relations on that continent. Hinojosa, a Texas native, majored in political science at the University of Texas at Austin and planned to pursue a Ph.
After graduating from Thunderbird , Hinojosa landed a position in marketing with McCann-Erickson Worldwide, at the time one of the largest international advertising firms in the world. For the next 17 years, he worked all around Latin America—Brazil, Puerto Rico, Peru, Chile and Mexico—climbing the corporate ladder at the ever-growing ad agency.
With each new posting, Hinojosa found success in securing new clients for the international advertising agency. During his tenure with McCann-Erickson, Hinojosa learned the lessons that he would draw upon years later to become one of the top Latin American public relations experts. He honed his understanding of how Latin American consumers think and behave. But even more important, he learned that the re is no one Latin American culture, as some people mistakenly think, or even a single culture within each country, but that each community has a distinct culture that needs to be addressed in a unique way.
He sought a position that would allow him to run the business op- eration of an entire region, which was not likely in advertising where typically executives get attached to specific companies. When Burston-Marsteller approached him in about running the ir entire Latin American division, he jumped at the chance. He was unconcerned about jumping from advertising to public relations, understanding that he still would be nurturing corporate brands, but through wise public affairs counseling and media attention ra the r than advertising.
He quickly found at Burston- Marsteller that he enjoyed working on all the things I know about myself is I love the unexpected. I also enjoy the o the r side—recruiting, dealing with profit and loss. One of the things I know about myself is I love the unexpected. But he also shows a deft touch when it comes to managing the staff, he notes.
He conducted meetings that guaranteed everyone a voice. The people who reported to him always spoke to me about him with the greatest respect. He empathized with the ir challenges working in developing countries. He spent considerable time in the region just so he could be of help to the m. She expected a typical meeting with a CEO, all business and forced small talk. Santiago provides his staff with an open- door policy that encourages dialogue.
He was not happy, for instance, that Burson-Marsteller offered a fourday break for the Fourth of July this year, while o the r companies in Miami and Latin America worked that Monday. When something threatens the brand integrity of one of his clients, Hinojosa shifts into overdrive. First, he looks at the overall situation in a cool-headed manner, which company executives under siege may not be able to do.
Hinojosa works with the executives to determine key goals on how best to protect the brand image. Within hours, Hinojosa will have given the CEO of the troubled firm an action plan on how to address the problem. A board member of the Florida Free Trade Area of the Americas, he is bullish that the free-trade agreements will help bring the se goals to fruition.
Hinojosa spends about half his professional life traveling to Burson-Marsteller offices throughout South America. He arrived one day in confident his Thunderbird education and fluency in Spanish, which he learned at home, would be enough to get him through. Soon after he touched down in Rio, he realized how wrong he was.
First, the driver was not the re. He tried using a U. His Spanish was useless as everyone spoke Portuguese. It took him two hours just to get out of the airport. New programs. Out standing professors. Thunderbird — a truly global learning experience.

Poza, an internationallyrecognized expert and author of two major books on family business, says family One of the strengths of the page book, Hisrich says, is that the business concepts are told through a real-world scenario.

Family Firm Institute. In , that group awarded him the Richard Beckhard Practice Award for his contribution to the body of knowledge regarding family business.
But less than six months later the y learned a hard lesson about religion and global business. They vanished. The outrage triggered by the now infamous cartoons transformed a promising regional market into a wasteland. How did a company from Denmark, a country not at all known for triggering international tension, find itself at the center of a geopolitical, religious and commercial maelstrom?
The answers extend beyond sales of Danish butter in Saudi Arabia. Based on the results of our decade-long program of global consumer boycott research—reinforced by the recent boycott of Arla—we offer five key points of understanding the phenomenon. Such boycotts are triggered by a company policy or action that consumers find objectionable, such as price gouging or the use of sweatshop labor in developing countries.
Companies that become targets in such a boycott quickly may discover the impact on the bottom line can be devastating, while the scope for effective response is greatly constrained. Global managers also must recognize that a new breed of competitor is fur the r complicating the landscape in politically and religiously sensitive markets.
For example, Muslim-owned brands have emerged that leverage the mselves as brands of conscience to Muslim consumers. The result is ano the r blow for Western firms. Buycotts are beginning to manifest a serious following in the Muslim world.
Two notable examples are Mecca-Cola and Zam-zam Cola. O the r product categories likely will follow. Global managers need to consider how best to compete against products whose compelling point of difference is that the y are not Western brands.
Yet, if we consider the ir business impact, such a focus on company-caused boycotts may not be commensurate with the ir immediate economic downside. Craig Smith is a senior fellow in marketing and business ethics at the London Business School. Even in high-profile boycotts, we found that while sales might have fallen substantially, the y generally recovered over relatively short time periods.
Think Exxon Valdez. Firms that are strongly identified with a particular country, ei the r because of the ir name or the ir brand image, are particularly vulnerable to tangential boycotts. Arla Foods suffered because the y were selling dairy products clearly identified as Danish. If an entire country can become a boycott target, the n no business is immune from the effect of unexpected and controversial events associated with its country of origin but o the rwise completely unrelated to its marketplace activities.
The Swiss-based company had to place ads in Saudi newspapers to counter a sharp drop in sales and correct the misperception that it was somehow associated with Denmark. Likewise, when France engaged in nuclear testing in the South Pacific in , local-owned French bakeries in Australia with no real link to France suffered losses in sales. Even Muslim firms have been victimized by the Danish protests.
A Kuwaiti-based, Muslim-owned enterprise, Kuwaiti-Danish Dairy, a company that has had no formal connection with Danish partners for more than 20 years, saw its sales drop 95 percent in Middle East markets outside Kuwait. Global protests caused by societal issues not only are less readily anticipated or avoided than company-caused boycotts, the y leave the boycott target with few options to keep and attract customers.
When animosity is high, traditional levers used by managers to impact marketplace behavior and increase share—brand advertisements or price promotions—have little effect. It is not that customers think the products are bad. They just find the country of origin associated with the brand objectionable. More directly, companies can decouple the product from the source of the offense by relabeling the ir products or forming joint ventures with local firms to provide evidence of regional origins.
Firms also may decide to publicly distance the mselves from the offensive event. While Denmark is a recent high-profile case, it is not the first such protest that has brought sales of Western goods to a standstill among Muslim consumers, and it will not be the last. In response, global managers need to rethink boycotts as well as buycotts, including the ir causes, the ir impact and the action steps available to mitigate the downside of becoming a tangential target. This impressive growth means an unprecedented number of Chinese executives will make the ir presence felt in the world of business.
Mainland China still is a low-cost manufacturing and processing base, but it is moving increasingly into the high-tech and telecommunications sectors. Not only an export base, as the economy grows and annual incomes rise, China is attracting foreign investment to serve the growing domestic market. But Chinese companies want an equal playing field. They do not yield the ir own market to foreign competition without seeking to compete on overseas markets the mselves. This means that Chinese companies increasingly will be present internationally under the ir own brands.
Moreover, in the move to become global, Chinese executives will face new challenges and pressures. While predicting the future is a hazardous undertaking, I had the advantage of being able to draw on the findings of a large study of 62 cultures. Mansour Javidan, surveyed thousands of middle managers around the world, including in China who were asked about Chinese cultural practices and values and the way business is conducted.
According to the GLOBE study, Chinese society has a high performance orientation score, which means it emphasizes and rewards excellence. This can be seen in the competitive environment at Chinese schools and the family focus on good grades and entrance to top universities. Performance orientation continues at work, with colleagues and classmates comparing the ir current jobs, promotions and salaries to ensure the y are seen as successful.
This trait will apply to national competition, so that by , Chinese executives will be focused on conquering the world with Chinese products and brands. Chinese executives already have embarked on a wave of global acquisitions to streng the n the ir competitive position and to feed the ir national pride.
This push comes from two impulses: 1 Smaller, often private companies have realized the importance of recognizable brands in raising product value. These companies have been purchasing Western companies with known brand names and the n outsourcing much of the production to China. This immediately lowers costs, maintains the brand name and allows the m to sell both internationally and domestically.
This has been particularly effective in the fashion industry. She has lived and worked in India, the United States, Germany and, since , China, where she founded and ran an organizational consulting firm. She joined Thunderbird in Eight Chinese companies already are listed among the Fortune Global SASAC, which is in charge of state assets and owns the largest corporations in China, declared a goal of increasing that number to between 30 and 50 over the next 10 years.
Clearly, by , the Chinese will not only be selling to the ir own domestic market but to the rest of the world, contrary to the main impetus today of selling only to its own 1. In order to grow beyond the image of low-cost producers and adaptors of existing technology, Chinese companies on the global scene ultimately will depend on the ir creativity and new product development. Chinese companies typically have a personal, paternalistic management style and centralized authority.
Such structures, which follow Confucian principles of hierarchy and responsibility, are found in government, state-owned companies and in private firms, and are reflected in high GLOBE scores for power distance. The structure is effective for making decisions and quick implementation, but it is not conducive to decentralizing decisionmaking in overseas operations or to managing different work forces in o the r countries because the paternalistic system centralizes authority and discourages empowerment.
Making a transformation to decentralized authority and empowerment of local operations will be hard for most Chinese executives and the people the y work with because of a cultural practice of deference to those in positions of authority and little experience of cascading responsibility. But if the y can make the change, the n Chinese companies will find that empowering o the r workers actually will relieve Chinese executives by reducing the human burden that leaders historically have carried.
It is a long-standing tradition that executives use the ir personal time and connections to fur the r the ir business interests. This is reflected in the importance of guanxi, or relations, in doing business, indicating that people want to know who you are and to what groups you belong before the y consider doing business with you. The person, not the product, is traditionally more important. Such a relationship-based culture has three traits.
First, it does not welcome outsiders, especially non- Chinese and non-Chinese speakers. Yet success in international markets demands the development of local managers in overseas markets and the ir integration into the global corporation. Second, the network is built on shared duties and does not typically encourage members to think in new ways, to bring in new ideas and or create ways of doing things.
Yet global business requires innovation and flexibility. Third, being part of a network means members are preoccupied with maintaining the ir relationships and position. This can breed both jealousy and extreme equity. In fact, Chinese companies rarely develop managers systematically for overseas postings and the y have a high turnover of employees posted abroad. This results from the feeling that it is more fair to divide among more people the opportunities to travel and live internationally.
These cultural patterns mean that Chinese belong to closed personal networks and are expected to obey the rules of the ir group, which fur the r inhibits the development of global executives. Although the younger generation of Chinese managers is becoming fairly individualistic in its goals and attitudes, even for the m the circle is the basis for building trust and success in the corporate world.
Making it more difficult for Chinese companies to break the se cultural patterns is the re are no similar cultural models for 40 fall the Chinese to emulate in this transition. Economists frequently compare the development of Chinese global brands to those coming out of Korea or Japan.
Yet companies in those countries were built using large profits from the ir closed domestic markets to fund the expansion internationally. In this respect, China is at a disadvantage. Despite the enormous domestic market, the level of competition for all consumer goods leaves little profit margin. There is not much funding for research and development activities, so the products are rarely innovative, and the re is not much left for funding overseas expansion. One of the o the r great challenges Chinese companies face in creating a culture that fosters creativity and rewards innovation is the focus on the In-Group.
In In-Group cultures, people only trust and work with those the y know and tend to be less tolerant of diversity. New and different ideas may be resisted, which stifles creativity and innovation, making cross unit collaboration and coordination hard to sustain. Chinese executives need to move away from a strong emphasis on personal trust and develop mechanisms and formal processes that encourage formal trust. Western companies have learned to create systems in which individuals can trust a stranger who works in the company, even if the y are in a different division or country.
Professor C. To see the entire list of Thunderbird faculty articles, go to: thunderbird. They assume the stranger shares the same business goals and values because he or she shares the same company processes. Establishing such systems is a challenge for Chinese companies. If the y cannot encourage formal trust, the y will be hampered in the ir empowerment efforts and in the ir global expansion ambitions. Chinese executives also face the cultural pressure of running the ir business entities according to political and social norms.
The danwei, or work unit, used to offer virtual cradle-to-grave insurance while also strictly ruling over what Westerners would consider private affairs. The work unit had the power to acknowledge marriages and divorces, gave permission, or not, for a child to be born and decided whe the r that child would be schooled.
Since the s, many Chinese enterprises have broken the iron rice bowl by no longer providing life-long employment and costly perks like free apartments and free access to hospitals. The trend has been streng the ned by banks reducing the number of loans to support inefficient companies. However, downsizing for efficiency, demanding high performance from employees and cutting benefits still conflicts with the cultural value of humane orientation and caring for the group, which is key to the Confucian view of a good leader.
A Chinese executive struggles with his conscience while he pushes for efficiency. Perhaps one of the biggest hurdles Chinese companies face in trying to become global economic players is in how the y view Chinese managers with a global outlook. Chinese executives who want to put the ir companies on the global stage have to develop a global mindset, it would seem, which will help the m work effectively with non-Chinese, while at the same time ensuring the y are still seen by the ir countrymen as faithful to Chinese traditions.
