Ms. Vukovic is the Global Culture Navigator’s lead economist and can perform detailed statistical and research analysis for each client’s cultural intelligence reports, including economic market research and economic development feasibility studies. Most businesses use a form of competitive analysis to improve decision-making, but often it only includes part of the equation—the numbers. Implementation can be derailed by uncharted cultural challenges. Vukovic has the international experience, research background and ability to translate numbers into recommendations for actionable marketing strategies. She’ll ask tough questions—the right questions—in the due diligence process.
