9780130617163: Winning Strategies for the New Latin Markets

Global corporations are rapidly discovering an emerging market of nearly 600 million Latin consumers in the United States and Latin America. In Winning Strategies for the New Latin Markets, three experts analyze the Latin market's unique dynamics and offer end-to-end strategies for success. They illuminate dramatic transformations in demographics, economics, local competition, regulation, technology, and culture. Then, through executive interviews and case studies, they offer insights into key strategies for every aspect of doing business: regional market expansion, market segmentation, branding, distribution, financing, and corporate structure.

From the Back Cover:

Foreword by Victor J. MenezesChairman and CEO, Citibank N.A.

From the Foreword"If multinational firms and their suppliers are to achieve and sustain success in Latin America, they will need to develop and implement sound strategies. Winning Strategies for the New Latin Markets contributes to this goal."

Companies worldwide are discovering the enormous potential of the Latin markets. Succeeding in the new Latin markets is challenging because of the dramatic changes affecting every aspect of life throughout the region. Winning Strategies for the New Latin Markets systematically reviews those changes—and offers guidelines for effective strategies that meet the changing market needs.

The authors—each a long-time expert in Latin and global business—challenge popular views of the Latin markets. Powerful transformations ranging from privatizations and economic reform to rapid adoption of the Internet are allowing major companies to create powerful business networks from New York to São Paulo—but success in the region also requires an understanding of consumer variations across countries.

The book unlocks the opportunities that emerge from a golden triangle of the Brazilian, Mexican, and U.S. Latin markets, which represent two thirds of the region's market power. A detailed account of integrators and specialists in consumer, retail, telecommunications, energy, health, and financial markets reveals how firms are crafting strategies through the value chain from manufacturing to finance and marketing.

* Over 100 interviews and several case studies Insights of corporate leaders from the United States, Europe, and Latin America * Reaching the new Latin consumers Changing demographics, changing economics, changing consumption patterns * A projected $1 trillion U.S. Latin market by 2010: 34 million Latin consumers Connecting with the United States' fastest growing market segment * Leveraging the Internet throughout the Latin value chain How technology is transforming planning, control, marketing, distribution, and customer service throughout the Latin world * A golden triangle of U.S. Latin, Mexican, and Brazilian markets: pivotal for success—but very different Choosing the right platform is the key for success throughout the hemisphere * Understanding the unique Latin healthcare marketplace An inside look at the challenge of healthcare marketing in Latin America * Future growth scenarios Challenges and opportunities for the next decade

Compete and win in the emerging Latin marketplace—600 million consumers strong!

"This is a must read for every business person operating in today's global economy. The authors' clear and innovative analysis of the specific business drivers of Latin markets will help potential investors shape their strategic approaches to the region."—Olivier Brandicourt, MD,
Area President, Latin America,
Pfizer

"This book fills a vacuum in development thinking and business strategies. Robles, Simon, and Haar have not only created a road map to the Latin world, but also developed valuable analytic approaches to successful strategies in the market that has the greatest growth prospects in the Western Hemisphere."—Gustavo A. Cisneros,
Chairman, Cisneros Group

"Winning Strategies for the New Latin Markets is a crucial work for anyone interested in knowing the Latin American market in today's globalized economy."—Luiz Fernando Furlan,
Chairman, Sadia S.A.-Brazil

"Winning Strategies for the New Latin Markets is a first-rate contribution to the growing body of business economic literature concerned with the rich but volatile markets in Latin America. As a hands-on manager of consumer and technology businesses exposed to the dynamic economic and political forces in the region, I can appreciate the value of this useful volume. Robles, Simon, and Haar have an understanding and empathy for Latin America that yields a savvy blend of political and business analysis. This book is a fine work...But it is much more; it offers serious, practical, real-world information and insight. I commend it with enthusiasm to those who seek to better understand what makes the Latin American region tick and how to position their business interests in such a way as to grow and prosper in the flow of the region's sometimes surprising development."—Charles Herington,
President and CEO, AOL Latin America

"An in-depth, knowledgeable collection of valuable insights for anyone wishing to go to market in Latin America. Not to be underestimated, as this continent and culture are challengingly unique."—Mario Moreira,
Vice Chairman, McCann-Erickson

"Winning Strategies for the New Latin Markets is the definitive business book for managing multinational enterprises and reaching customers in the Latin markets' digital decade."-Mauricio Santillán,
Vice President Latin America, Microsoft
