Pace of Change

What does the term "pace of change" mean? 
In relation with Globalization, pace of change is the velocity in wich it reaches other countries or how long it takes for the product or idea to reach another nation.
Based on the video+your notes give atleast 2 different examples that demostrate this concept.
