04. 2009
The following checklist is designed to be used by senior management as the first step in planning expansion into foreign markets. It sets forth strategic questions for planning international development, including:

  • Whether the company is at the right stage of its corporate development to enter overseas markets
  • Optimum business model
  • Country selection
  • Sequence and timing
  • Localization; and
  • Other strategic issues.

Once the International Planning Checklist is complete, the information collected can serve as the basis for the company’s International Business Plan and the roadmap for its international development strategy. 

The International Planning Checklist is one in a series of international business expansion planning tools.
