This is a great question. Organizing with an eye to what is happening in the world is an important consideration, because even if your company or organization is not global, the world is. In other words, even if you do not intend your organization to have a global outreach, the mind of the people of the world is global. The world has sufficiently changed that more and more people are globally minded. Cities are a perfect example. Therefore, it behooves an organization to know what is going on in the world and be globally minded even in a local market. In light of this, let me give some suggestions.

First, a company might seek to hire diverse people, so that they would have a global perspective from their own employees. This is a simple, but important action. 

Second, a company should be active in knowing what is happen in the world. Hence, their strategies even in a local market should be cognizant of what is happening on a global level.
