• Click the Play Full Video button and watch the opening introduction video. After you finish the video, in the lower right corner, click Next > to see the characters. Select Dr. Richard Sowers.
• Proceed through the simulation as Dr. Richard Sowers, noting the different decisions you make along with their effects. Go through the simulation a few times and make different decisions to see the different effects they cause.
• Write a reflective paper describing the process you went through and the results you received based on the different decisions you made as Dr. Richard Sowers. Recall your previous experience with this simulation as Jan Klein, RN, the clinical research coordinator(document attached-see attachments). Discuss how both roles can affect a research study depending on which decisions are made.
Export mode is the most common strategy to use when entering international markets. Exporting is the shipment of products, manufactured in the domestic market or a third country, across national borders to fulfill foreign orders. Shipments may go directly to the end user, to a distributor or to a wholesaler. Exporting is mainly used in initial entry and gradually evolves towards foreign-based operations. Export entry modes are different from contractual entry modes and investment entry modes in a way that they are directly related to manufacturing. Export can be divided into direct and indirect export depending on the number and type of intermediaries. 188.8.131.52 Direct exporting (sell to buyers) Direct exporting means that the firm has its own department of export which sells the products via an intermediary in the foreign economy namely direct agent and direct distributor. This way of exporting provides more control over the international operations than indirect exporting. Hence, this alternative often increases the sales potential and also the profit. There is as well a higher risk involved and more financial and human investments are needed. There are differences between distributors and agents. The basis of an agent’s selling is commissions, while the distributors’ income is a margin between the prices the distributor buys the product for and the final price to the wholesalers or retailers. In contrast to agents the distributors usually maintain the product range. The agents also do not position the products, and do not hold payments while the distributors do both and as well as provide customers with after sales services. Using agents or distributors to introduce the products to a foreign market will have the advantages that they have knowledge about the market, customs, and have established business contacts.>GET ANSWER
