AND RESPOND TO THIS POST DIRECTLY:
Greetings Professor and class! The one environmental factor that affects behavioral processes in international channels the most to me would be the world economy. Granted, the United States economy is doing great at the moment, but when you partner with businesses or factions of a business in other countries the state of that country’s economy is something to consider on overall profits. The best strategy is to apply a universal standard and way of doing things. You want to make sure that the overall goal is the same throughout the company and that way everyone stays on the same page with the overall objective in mind.
