slide 11: Noting for example that many Indians use their TVs to listen to music LG introduced new models with better speakers and to keep prices competitive less costly displays.

slide 12: Intensive customer research and feedback determine the kind of adaptations to be made to products - the colour of refrigerators for instance.

We dont think localization is just about local hiring local tax contribution and localized products. Our view is that the next level of localization is about collaborating with the best local businesses in various disciplines and specialized fields and integrating their innovation into our global value chain.

By creating incentives for local retail entrepreneurs rather than hiring salaried employees or franchise holders the company reduces its need to monitor individual sales performance.

slide 31:

Nestlé has provided the technology training and supply-chain investments to make it possible for the small farmer to produce good-quality milk transport it and sell it to the company.

Example 15

slide 52: When BP sought to market a duel-fuel portable stove in India it set up one such co-creation system with 3 Indian NGOs.

slide 53: The system allowed BP to bring the innovative stove to a geographically dispersed market through myriad local distributors without incurring distribution costs so high that the product would become unaffordable.

slide 54: The company sold its stoves profitably the NGOs gained access to a lucrative revenue stream that could fund other projects and consumers got more than the ability to sit down to a hot meal - they got the opportunity to earn incomes as the local distributors and thus to gain economic and social influence.
