1 Jarir is one of the largest companies in Saudi Arabia Established in 1974, it is headquartered in
Riyadh and has several branches in different countries such as Qatar, Kuwait and UAE Jarir
Company operates through two divisions namely retail and wholesale, as well as online sales. Its
activities include educational books and children’s educational games. Audio-visual equipment
and mobile phones have earned Jarir the best brand in Saudi Arabia
2Our Jarir Bookstore has a very large market share locally, as a management we have decided
that on 2020 firs quarter we need to open our first branch out of Saudi Arabia which will be in
united kingdom located at most popular location in oxford street. Following this by expanding
into United State of America to open another branch in New York City that planned to be opened
in third quarter on 2020. For that, we have discussed the type of management style and type that
we need to follow to manage the global branches where there are many different types of virtual
management. After many meetings and team discussions we have decided to go with onsite team
manager to run and maintain the business operation and workflow as per our system and follow
Jarir vision and objectives. Senior salesmen and senior costumer service to be working in these
new branches whom worked with Jarir for years and knows the style of Jarir processes and follow
that and also train the new staff. Another type of management was also chosen which is the
outsources team which is required to operate the other needed services like IT support and
housekeeping services.
3/ Managing
virtual team will be one of the most challenging task in order to go global.
And to overcome this challenge we have to build a type of communication where we can
communicate with all team members at the same time. Remotely meeting it has to be
planned on the weekly basis with all site managers to discuss the weekly progress along
all the sites
4/ Communications; it is one of the task that has to be tackle in order to expand to global market.
Jarir Bookstore has developed many communication application inside Saudi branches which
allows all company employees to communicate with each other at all times. One of the
communication we used is the Outlook application which feature the communication between the
employees through emails and it has the capabilities to store the employees information as a
contact list which allows all employees to search for their required colleagues and communicate
with them. Another communication application which are used by Jarir to communicate among
all employees is Skype for business where the application provides the live chatting with video
capability and it also provide the teleconference calls. These two application will allows Jarir
employees in United Kingdom and United State of America to be in touch with all Jarir
employees and Jarir management in and out Saudi Aribia.
5 / You probably expect differences in laws and languages, so you would hire a
lawyer and translator from the country you are moving into(Garton & Wegryn, 2006). But you
also might need a local person’s perspective to understand how the culture and even taste could
affect the market for some consumer in UK and US
In terms of time differences, geographic areas of staff can be identified, time differences can be
identified and written into a spreadsheet, positioning all time zones where employees are
available and trying to hold a weekly meeting alternately across time zones
In terms of cultural difference, rules and guidelines should be developed for team members, and
team members should not explain cultural differences in the UK and the US (Garton & Wegryn,
2006). They are strange or wrong, but they must respect their culture and live with it as much as
In terms of economic and linguistic differences, a lawyer and an interpreter from the United
States or the United Kingdom should be appointed to clarify matters
