I believe that we have a significant problem finishing last in consumer reports for customer satisfaction. We will implement a Customer Satisfaction Survey (CES) with every transaction that takes place in any of our stores or customer care phone calls (AT&T Inc., 2012). We are going to be aggressive with our stores and expect 90% sales representative satisfaction and willingness to recommend. We will be changing the way the customer receives this survey compared to how we did in the past. Before, the customer would receive an automated phone call survey or email.
Problem Identified: The Whelan Pharmaceuticals needs to determine an ideal location to manufacture their new product, Varex. However, there were different functional areas preferred different sites for Varex: In light of the high tax rate, from the purely financial point of view, Ireland is a better choice, but in light of the price negotiation with the European Countries, it seems that continental Europe will be a better choice. In addition the fact that the strategic objectives of the company are satisfied in selecting European mainland, this is likely to be choice of the committee. Manufacturing in Ireland would give the company a continuing tax savings of $35 million dollars a year by the fourth year that Varex is on the market. My Recommendation: Whelan should manufacture Varex in Continental Europe.

A Michigan court is likely to agree that the fourth standard set out in Sutton is likely to apply, since the employer displayed retaliatory actions against Ms. Yang by denying her a partnership opportunity two weeks after reporting the suspected violation of the MRPC. Ms. Yang met all criteria for partnership and would not have experienced such actions had there been no protected activity. Ms. Yang is seeking protection under the WPA claiming that her employer acted in a retaliatory manner by failing to promote her, by denying her a partnership opportunity. The court held in a similar case, where the plaintiff was an employee working as a plumbing cross-connection inspector who complained to the Michigan Department of Labor’s Bureau of Safety and Regulation, about safety violations in defendant’s old water plant and then overlooked for another position, that a sufficient basis existed to grant protections afforded under the WPA. The court held
United Cereal: A Case Study Introduction: This case study focuses on United Cereal, a $9 billion multi-national business that sells breakfast cereals, snack foods, dairy products, and other food-related products. The decision under review is whether or not to launch a new breakfast cereal, Healthy Berry Crunch (HBC), through its French subsidiary. This would be United Cereal’s first multi-market Eurobrand launch. There are several challenges presented in the case that not only concern the launch, but also involve changing the management structure to better position the Company to support/grow further initiatives in the region. My focus will be on the pros and cons of the product launch as recommended by Michel.
Mr. Maucher should accept to the terms of Rowntree and allow the formation of world confectionary business. Nestle is against hostile takeovers and would want Rowntree’s board to recommend the bid. If Rowntree’s terms are not agreed upon, Nestle will have to drop out of the bid clearing the way for Suchard to acquire Rowntree. Suchard would gain clear competitive advantage in Europe. In such a situation, Nestle will have the following options a.
Since Philip Morris gradually tried to diversify its revenue spectrums and arranged acquisition of Kraft after the General Foods Corporation acquisition, the Company needed to secure financial resources to prevent any contingent or unfavorable environment. Based on PM’s financial status (audited FS as of 12/31/88), was able to endure Kraft acquisition, but needs additional financial resources. Philip Morris’ acquisition strategy for Kraft seems risky, but I believe that it was worthy to try. It seems as a very successful strategy to consider the result now, but Philip Morris took a risk to participate in the food industry, which was a significant transition for PM. PM appropriately caught what the synergy impacts are when it acquired well-known business brands such as Kraft Inc.
Abstract The success of the grapefruit citrus soft drink known as Squirt, offered by the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, depends on the proper identification of the target market. In this case the target market is the Hispanic population. Just identifying the overall group is not enough though as any large group is not homogeneous in nature. The company must find a way to reach all those in the group in an effective manner and make sure to also reach the maximum number of people in that group. Sometimes the final decisions are a blend of options in terms of market, penetration and advertising in order to not only take care of the present and the future as well.
