- n. Alternative form of glocalization.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
But my summary of her bottom line, "designing for glocalisation", is placeism through and through:
At the recent O'Reilly Emerging Technology conference, Danah Boyd gave a talk about "glocalisation".
Or is this merely an innocent case of "glocalisation"?
Get with 'glocalisation' and download some South African music.
However, I do not think that this precludes the glocalisation that was central to the power-sharing of the Europe of the Regions - that some powers are transferred upwards because they refer to issues that go beyond one or two regions or states but affect us all, while others should be transferred downwards so that they are closer to the populations which they serve.
Companies like GE are finding that their hiring practices, reporting structures, titles, job descriptions, norms for working relationships and the power balances between different internal functions - all of which have evolved to meet the needs of glocalisation - must be changed.
The argument is that over the last couple of decades, globalisation has been informed by a glocalisation strategy, through which developed world companies develop new technologies and products in their home markets and then distribute them worldwide, making some adaptations to suit conditions in local markets.
