Activity Instructions
In this discussion, you will gain experience in analyzing the shaping and driving forces that impact the development of new leadership agendas.

Using the case study PepsiCo India: On the Road to Sustainable Development?, define how the shaping and driving forces PepsiCo experienced in India impacted the leadership agenda.

Discussion 1:

As organizations expand and spread their operations across different countries, they are confronted with a different set of challenges and opportunities. Therefore, it is becoming increasingly important for organizations to understand the differences across cultures and countries and accordingly develop customized strategies on the basis of these differences across nations. PepsiCo had initially been catering to the region of developed markets and its entry into India was a shift since India is a developing market which is on the state of expansion.
