Why managers need exposure on the ground and what is the learning for a NGO?

There are a lot of presumptions when managers talk about emerging countries and how it might look on the ground. Often the knowledge is a learned one only – through facts, figures or third parties who do research. But is this enough to really understand what is needed, what can create a benefit and maybe lead also to a market preparation?
