* Entrepreneurship

It is the process of designing a new business, i.e. a startup company offering a product, process or service. The entrepreneur perceives a new business opportunity and often exhibits biases in her perception and subsequent decision to exploit the opportunity. The explanation of entrepreneurial opportunities may conclude design action such as to develop a business plan, acquire the human, financial and other required resources, and to be responsible for its success or failure. Entrepreneurship may operate within an entrepreneurship ecosystem which includes government program and services that promote entrepreneurs, entrepreneurship resources, (e.g. business incubators and seed accelerators) entrepreneurship education, training and financing (e.g., loans, venture capital financing, and grants).

Case Analysis

...aA Guide to Case Analysis I keep six honest serving men (They taught me all I knew); Their names are What and Why and When; And How and Where and Who. Rudyard Kipling 2 STRATEGY: Core Concepts and Analytical Approaches I n most courses in strategic management, students use cases about actual companies to practice strategic analysis and to gain some experience in the tasks of crafting and implementing strategy. A case sets forth, in a factual manner, the events and organizational circumstances surrounding a particular managerial situation. It puts readers at the scene of the action and familiarizes them with all the relevant circumstances. A case on strategic management can concern a whole industry, a single organization, or some part of an organization; the organization involved can be either profit seeking or not-for-profit. The essence of the student’s role in case analysis is to diagnose and size up the situation described in the case and then to recommend appropriate action steps. Why Use Cases to Practice Strategic Management? The foregoing limerick was used some years ago by Professor Charles Gragg to characterize the plight of business students who had no exposure to cases.1 The facts are that the mere act of listening to lectures and sound advice about managing does little for anyone’s management skills and that the accumulated managerial wisdom cannot effectively be passed on by lectures and assigned readings alone. If anything had......

Mini Case About Myself

...Mini-case analysis paper In my previous company, I was responsible for an operation function, totally more than 80 people in this function in my charge. The function is divided into four teams to cover 7*24 operation, one team for morning shift, one for noon shift, and two for night shift. The four team leaders report to me directly, Bruce and Roc are the two team leaders of night shift (one for D135, and the other for D246). Because of the same working flow and responsibility, the KPI setting for them is the same, and it’s very easy to compare and evaluate between them. Bruce was a trainer before he joined the company, so he is very talkative and good at motivating people, but his professional skill is so-so. On the contrary, Roc was promoted from front-line agent, attributed the success to his excellent professional skill and proactive working attitude, but he is not good at coaching and sharing. The actual team performance was very clear that Roc’s was much worse than Bruce’s, and most of the operation mistakes were made by Roc’s team. In working time, Bruce looks leisurely and often walking around, meanwhile his team members are busy doing their work. In Roc’s working shift, the situation is totally different. Roc looks so busy to handle too many tasks by himself, while his team members seem a little leisurely and even chatting with others. Also, Roc is always the first one to come and the last to leave, and many times he volunteered to drive to the company in peak......

Case Analysis About Ceo Compensation

...bonus, $24 millions in cash, $74 million in exercised options, and was granted 7.25 million in new options.  In 1980, CEO compensation was 42 times that of the average worker.  In 2000, it was 531 times.             The second major criticism of CEO pay concerns how CEOs are paid.  Critics argue that CEOs are agents of stockholders and that CEO pay should be based heavily on stock-price performance.  In some celebrated cases CEO pay appears disconnected to CEO performance.  For example, Ford Motor Co. reported $5.45 billion loss in 2001.  Workers were laid off, and salaries for nearly everyone left suffered.  Even though former Ford CEO Jacques Nasser was fired, he still received about $20 million in compensation for the year.  Since 1980, the increasing use of stock options has boosted the sensitivity of the average CEO’s wealth to firm performance.  However, the absolute sensitivity of CEO wealth to performance remains small.  Research indicates that for a $1,000 change in firm value, the wealth of the average CEO of a large public corporation changes by only about $10.57.  Some argue this relation (which is equivalent to the CEO owning 1.057 percent of the common stock) is too small and that most companies would be better off if they increased incentive pay for CEOs.  Some support for this view seems to come from studies that document an increase in stock price when companies announce that they are increasing incentive pay for CEOs.   ...

Case About Vanatin

...BACKGROUND INFORMATION FOR THE VANATIN CASE Assume that it is January 2013 and that you are a member of the Booth Pharmaceutical Corporation Board of Directors. You have been called to a Special Board Meeting to discuss what should be done with the product known as “Vanatin.” Vanatin is a “Fixed-ratio” antibiotic sold by prescription. “Fixed-ratio” means that it contains a combination of drugs. It has been on the market for more than 13 years and has been highly successful. It now accounts for about 18 billion dollars per year, which is 12 percent of Booth Company’s gross income in the United States (and a greater percentage of net profits). Profits from foreign markets, where Booth is marketed under a different name, are roughly comparable to that in its home country. Over the past 20 years, there have been numerous medical scientists (e.g.. the National Council on Drugs) who have objected to the sale of most fixed-ratio drugs. The argument has been that (1) there is no evidence that these fixed-ratio drugs have improved benefits over single-drugs, and (2) the possibility of detrimental side effect, including death, has at least doubled. For example, these scientists have estimated that Vanatin is causing about 30 to 40 unnecessary deaths per year (i.e., deaths that could be prevented if the patients had used a substitute made by a competitor of Booth). Despite the recommendations to remove fixed-ratio drugs from the market, doctors have continued to use them....

Enchanted Kingdom Case Study

...I. Title of the Case Enchanted Kingdom: The Magic Lives On and On II. Executive Summary of the Case Enchanted Kingdom (EK) is the pioneer theme park in the country, boasting seven fantastic theme zones, and imported rides and attractions. Ideally, new rides and attractions should be added annually to maintain the charm and sustain the viability of the theme park. However, due precarious economic conditions prevailing in late 1997 onward, the company deferred its expansion plans. It has been almost four years since it last introduced a new major ride or attraction for the theme park. Against the Asian currency crisis backdrop, management must identify strategies to eliminate seasonal demands and boost its guest attendance and profitability. III. Background of the Case Enchanted Kingdom opened to the public on October 19. 1995. It was and still is the Philippines' first world class fixed and themed amusement attraction on a scale never before seen in the country. It had 16 rides and attractions most of which were unique to the Philippines during its introduction while the rest were in size and capacities that had never experienced in the country before. Locating these rides and attractions within seven meticulously themed zones interspersed with food and merchandise outlets and kiosks as well as various game stands also added to the “experience” in a totally “enchanting” environment, away from the day-to-day realities of life. In 1996, answering......

Ayah Pin's Sky Kingdom Case Study

...1.0 INTRODUCTION Malaysia is dominated by a moderate Muslim majority, and has a secular legal system. But one quirky, quasi-religious group based in the country’s Islamic heartland, led by a man who claims to be God, is testing the country’s religious freedoms. Terengganu state, set in the lush north of Malaysia, has long been part of the spiritual and religious heart of the country. But the Terengganu village of Kampung Batu 13, about 400 kilometers north of Malaysia’s capital, Kuala Lumpur, is slightly different. It contains a six-acre commune, dominated by a building about the size of a two-story house, shaped like a giant pink teapot. Next to it is an umbrella shaped building and an assortment of other objects, such as a fishing boat and an oversized vase containing “holy” water. This is the village of Ayah Pin, a 61 years old Malay man, who claims to be God. And, according to Ayah Pin, several thousand others in Malaysia and overseas, believe him. 1.1 BACKGROUND OF AYAH PIN AYAH PIN, THE GROUP LEADER Ariffin Muhammad or more fondly known as Ayah Pin has several meanings of names; “Arif” is referring to Supreme, Intelligent or Equality and “Ayah” gives meaning of The Father , The leader.

Case Analysis About Dabbawalla

...Case analysis about Dabbawalla Case summary: Dabbawalla is the name of a group of Indian entrepreneurs that deliver home-cooked food to Indian office- and factory workers in the city of Mumbai. By using the public transport, bicycle and handcarts they pick up dabbas (a kind of lunch box) in the office- and factory workers homes. They use codes on the lid and geographical depots to divide the lunch boxes in to different areas all over metropolitan Mumbai. After delivering the food they also provide the service of picking it up and deliver it home. The workers have a special bond making it feel like a family rather than a business. My task is to do a case analysis on MTBSA (as the company is called) using the SWOT-analysis. Strengths: • A good business idea – The company has found a need that is, if not ever-lasting, long-lasting. In these days with long business hours you don’t have time to eat long lunches and its to expensive eating out every day at restaurants. The offices don’t offer cafeterias or restaurants and it would be hard to fill all the different food-demands that the workers want. Bringing their own lunchboxes is hard as the public transport is crowded and you need your two hands for holding on to the train and your briefcase. • Environmental friendly – The dabbawalas uses their feet, bicycles, handcarts and the public transport making their contribution to pollution close to zero. The dabbas are made by tin or aluminum and has a long life span making......
