When the requested products were finally available in the stores, the prices of the products were very high and the product variety was extremely limited. The high prices of the products made these unaffordable for a large part of the customer base. The limited variety of the requested food products gave customers very few options in healthier food choices. The decision by Company Q management to throw out day-old food products, instead of donating these to the local Food Bank again highlights the lack of social responsibility towards the community in which Company Q does business. This action demonstrates a lack of interest to aid the less fortunate in the community, as well as failing to increase their customer base.
What is your assessment of the competitive strength of Walt Disney Company’s different business units?

Walt Disney Imagineering Some of the challenges Disney faced when entering the global market was language, cultural differences, political challenges and foreign currency. Disney created its Imagineering team to be visionaries for the company and to assist with breaking through those barriers they encounter. Disney’s goal was to penetrate the global market while “preserving its fundamental message and still catering to the wildly varying taste of different world cultures” (Nickels, McHugh, McHugh, n.d.).

America began on small businesses and America has to continue to have small businesses to have a good economy. Wal-Mart endangers businesses all over the country because small businesses cannot compete with the superpower on account of Wal-Mart getting goods from places like China.

b. Opposition focused mainly on Disney’s choice of the Manassas site, and not the issue of whether the theme-park should come to Virginia. Responding to Disney and Allen’s projections of job creation, opponents argued that employment was already low in northern Virginia relative to the rest of the state. c. Activists with different reasons for opposing Disney’s America united behind the single, common cause of fighting suburban sprawl.
