The two main ways I see to prepare a multi-national corporation for success in other countries are education and skillful selection of key employees.
A firm that is taking employees (typically high-level employees) to other countries must make sure it selects people who will be flexible enough to do well abroad. This depends to a great extent on the personality of the employee. Some people simply do not adapt well to change and unfamiliar circumstances.
A firm must also educate its employees. They need to know what new challenges will face them as they do business with other countries.
