Read the Lincoln Electric case on page 202 of the textbook.
1) Summarize the case and your understanding of it
2) How do you think Lincoln Electric would have to adjust its system if they opened a plant
3) Would the result of Lincoln Electric`s efforts been different if it had tried to introduce its

such as Mexico?
4) Why do you think more firms have not tried to copy a system like Lincoln Electric`s?
