The OSI Group is a leading food-processing company. It has started its food processing operation in China in 1992.
David McDonald is the President of the OSI Group. He realizes that any global company has to remain local in order to succeed. This is because any organization that operates in the United States and Europe as well as China will have to provide customized solutions. This is because the Government regulations, culture, and people will decide how the company is to be run. In the case of the food industry, the taste buds of the customer will differ too.
But OSI Group is positioned very well. This is because it has a global network. This means that they can scale in size. They also promote local management teams which understand the local culture as well as tastes. Hence it is the power of global scaling combined with the efficiency as well as the efficacy of local solutions.
