Multinational giants like Nokia, Hewlett Packard, Wall-mart, and JP Morgan are just a few fine examples of companies operating in different markets. The primary goal, focus, and targets of these companies are different for every country. One of the primary reasons for this is difference in key international environment. The marketing, operation, and sales strategies also changes according to the international scenario.
