In-depth research and analysis needs to be conducted on other companies that have created similar successful programs.

1. How would you define “Frozen Preferences” and what is the impact of this concept on strategy formulation, alternative analysis and recommendation? • Managers don’t like to make major strategic changes once decisions have been made (except in the case of overwhelming evidence) as they will look unprepared and ineffective and their creditability is damaged • Frozen preferences o Management has made a decision and over time analysis shows that their decision may not be the best choice o However they feel compelled to maintain their current strategy even if it is not the best course of action. • As management preferences becomes a larger part of the organization (personnel changes, budgets etc), it becomes more and more difficult to change direction. o A tendency to avoid reversing changes even if it was not the best choice o In reality, past expenditures are sunk costs and the organization should use a clean slate to look at new choices, but to the manager, this will come at great personal loss.
Suppose that Cornelius believes that Elliot is not a good hire for Pharma. Can he fire Elliot? Although Adams may have had the legal right to hire Elliot without the consent of the others, it was a morally wrong decision not to seek the consent of the other shareholding partners.

The Express store currently in Kava is currently a basic store and unable to meet the needs of the island.

Basically, as the GE- Honeywell merger story illustrates, the EU’s power comes from its ability to meticulously regulate all business intending to benefit from the huge regional market. Basically, if any company wants to profit, it has no choice but to comply. It seems that Reid avoids this whole issue because there is little evidence in support of a Europe that has sound economic ideals upon which to build
PROBLEM STATEMENT The owners of the company seek for growth and recently they have realized that this objective implies significant strategic changes. The changes are necessary because by the way the company is using its resources, it is not able to deliver long-term value to their customers, which are as well too diverse in terms of their needs. The analysis to be presented will try to adress the problem that Hubspot faces, which is wrong market segmentation and the possibility of leaving money on the table, derived of a bad pricing scheme. SITUATION ANALYSIS It is important to start by discarding straightforward any utilization of outbound marketing.

Yes. As Marquis emphasizes, the IT commoditization cannot be compared with other commodities, like utilities, because the company success is highly dependent on the quality of its IT resources, in such scale that the inefficiency of IT can simply bring down an entire organization. In the current time, in fact, we are seeing the opposite direction, where IT, instead of being just a resource, is part of the business discussion table at the executive level. This allows the company to use IT to generate competitive advantage, by taking advantage of technology to enhance its people productivity and optimize process, but tailoring the IT investment decision and focus according the overall company strategy. It should be noted that is still advantageous to outsource some specific tasks on the IT department, such as infrastructure and user support.
