FOR INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS CONSULTING PROJECTS: One activity common to all projects is to gather any relevant information for this task and the resources in this guide attempt to provide a starting point for this endeavor. Because each project is unique and evolves as communication between the client and the team develop during the project's duration, the resources in this guide are general in scope. Many projects will use information from the library's databases or creditable websites as a small portion of their deliverables.
As you work your information needs may change. Be ready to search sources multiple times with new search terms and parameters. If you are working on a project for international business, the scope of the project will be uniquely suited to your client's needs. Some projects will entail extensive country information for market possibilities, while others may involve global companies which will submit projects requesting recommendations for restructuring internal operations.
