IKEA Goes To RussiaStreaming Video - 2007
The Vikings never conquered Russia, but Swedish mega-retailer IKEA might just pull it off. In this case, victory depends on sweet-talking, arm-twisting, and impromptu brainstorming-skills that company founder Ingvar Kamprad has perfected over a long life in business. This program follows Kamprad and a handful of colleagues during their 10-day trip across Moscow and more remote regions, revealing the political and logistical challenges that must be overcome to solidify a domestic supply chain and make IKEA Russia profitable. The result is both an illuminating international business case study and a remarkable profile of one of the world's richest, oldest, and most charismatic entrepreneurs.
