The external marketing environment is full of opportunities and threats that can have a profound effect on the success or failure of a company, a brand, or a product in the global marketplace.In this assessment, you will practice scanning the global marketing environment (i.e., environmental analysis) for opportunities or threats to expansion in a country of your choice outside the U.S. for Persimmon Bakery as the owner.Scenario: You are the owner of Persimmon Bakery, which is currently located in the city closest to where you live. You specialize in breads and sweets from many different countries and now have operations in eight regions of the U.S. You realize the market has become saturated in the U.S. At a recent international trade show, you were surprised at how many requests you received to license or franchise your concept in other countries.Your task is the following:Based on the scenario, identify another country outside the United States to research and determine the feasibility of entering this foreign market for Persimmon Bakery as the owner by addressing the checklist items in a minimum 10-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with audio and audio notes.Checklist:Step 1: Cultural FactorsIdentify several cultural factors in the country you are pursuing that may affect market expansion of the bakery, such as: behavior patterns, the concept of time, lifestyle, etc. You can use Commisceo™ Global Consultants’ website to research country cultural factors.Considering these cultural factors, do you see them as possible opportunities or threats to entering this market?

Adding the audio necessitates having either a built-in microphone in your computer or a headset with microphone to record the audio portion. Access instructions for adding audio to your presentation.Step 4: Political/Legal Forces-Go to the World Bank Group’s “Doing Business” website and note the “Ease of Doing Business” ranking-Then go the World Economic Forum’s website for “country and regional trends from the NRI”.Provide the four rankings for your chosen country.Explain whether these political/legal considerations represent opportunities or threats to entering this market.
