葛蘭特李的 中國隨記 #3 關於吃漢堡衍伸的不同文化解讀

葛蘭特李的 中國隨記 #1 案例分析: 從廣州天河區麥當勞了解全球在地化戰略

Unlike the old post with lots of words, this time, I want to show you what it feels like in the real elevators! Check out the following videos presented by the Retail Innovation Center at Wake Forest University. I was getting bumped while watching the videos.
