Global Communications

The world of global communication is storied, vast and wide. It can also be very treacherous and unpredictable for people that are not in the know about what is involved, why things have to be done a certain way and so forth. This report will be a brief literature review of three articles that all pertain to global communications. The articles will relate to web-enabling for competitive advantage, the role of entrepreneurial networks in the exploration and exploitation of certain peoples and a case study about one of IBM's newer corporate volunteer programs. While these articles may seem to be about different things, they are all part of the different pieces and parts to the global communications landscape and all are worth of at least a cursory review.

This would include travel services, visa details, health insurance, safety insurance, weather information, flight reservations, police registration, current exchange, travel itineraries, sale and purchase of equipment, souvenirs and communication requirements in general. This is emblematic of a "bricks and clicks" model that allows for the combination of "clicks" on the internet along with the "bricks" of the actual buildings and facilities on the ground. This strategy may sound like gold, but it was not without some issues. Indeed, 1998 was a very turbulent year for the Pakistani tourist industry in general. The developing country gets more than half of its $14 billion in tourist revenue from the aforementioned NAP area. In short, the "bricks and clicks" strategy was very much a way to make the most of the revenue that was there and this all serves as a means to attract and retain people to come and keep…
