...STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT What is strategic management?  Strategic management  can be used to determine mission, vision, values, goals, objectives, roles and responsibilities, timelines, etc. Top of Category What is strategic planning?  Strategic planning is a management tool, period. As with any management tool, it is used for one purpose only: to help an organization do a better job - to focus its energy, to ensure that members of the organization are working toward the same goals, to assess and adjust the organization's direction in response to a changing environment. In short, strategic planning is a disciplined effort to produce fundamental decisions and actions that shape and guide what an organization is, what it does, and why it does it, with a focus on the future. (Adapted from Bryson's Strategic Planning in Public and Nonprofit Organizations). A word by word dissection of this definition provides the key elements that underlie the meaning and success of a strategic planning process: The process is strategic because it involves preparing the best way to respond to the circumstances of the organization's environment, whether or not its circumstances are known in advance; nonprofits often must respond to dynamic and even hostile environments. Being strategic, then, means being clearr bout the organization's objectives, being aware of the organization's resources, and incorporating both into being consciously responsive to a dynamic environment.  The process is about......

In particular, he noticed the building under construction that would soon bear his name. Asked how this particular honor felt, Mr. Stata responded with a humble shrug. However, when asked about the Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) business, Mr. Stata was willing to show considerable pride. Mr. Stata was Chairman of Analog Devices, Incorporated (ADI), a company which he co-founded in 1965. MEMS was one division. He had invested a tremendous amount of personal attention and energy to the success of MEMS – and risked his reputation. In fact, without his vision and dedicated leadership, this ambitious, entrepreneurial effort would have collapsed under mounting losses several years earlier. During one three-year stretch, from 1997 to 2000, Mr. Stata had decided to simultaneously serve as Chairman of ADI and General Manager of the MEMS division in order to keep the venture alive. In 2002, Mr. Stata regarded the MEMS business as a jewel. With worldwide technical supremacy that had been built over fifteen years, the business was profitable, and the long-term growth prospects appeared tremendous.

In order to gain a better understanding, I will be providing you with tips and other useful information. The purpose of this memo is to discuss the proper use and integration of visual aids and designs in text. Visual Aids Visual aids can help you understand and reach objectives by providing visual emphasis on what is being said. They emphasize focal points and convey information using graphics to facilitate understanding. Psychologist Jerome Bruner of New York University notes in Power of Visual Communication (2004), “people remember ten percent of what they hear and twenty percent of what they read, but about eighty percent of what they see and do.” Visual aids are useful because they help you to be able to grasp your audience’s attention. Designing Visual Aids According to the McGraw-Hill Publishing Company (2004), there are six guidelines to adhere by to ensure you design effective visual aids.                    1.     Plan and Prepare Visuals Aids in Advance Visual Aids take time to......

...Case Study 5.3 Analog Devices, Incorporated: Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) Question 1 Had Mr. Payne negotiated an agreement with ADI that allowed him to start a separate, venture-financed company to commercialize MEMS devices in the late 80s, he would have realized his goal of heading his own business venture. Whether or not the MEMS devices become a success story, however, is a different question altogether. The early development of MEMS devices benefited greatly from being a part of ADI, from having the positive ADI culture, skilled workforce, manufacturing expertise, and not to mention the financial and top management support. It is unlikely that Mr. Payne would have gotten the first three factors in a brand new start up company. On the financial and management side of operation, Mr. Payne would be hard pressed to garner sufficient support to tide him through the many years of negative profits and is likely to have his attention divided between having had to defend the venture and to improve profitability at the same time. It is a point to note that during these early years, even ADI management did not really trust the potential of the MEMS devices enough to create a separate division. In fact, the early development was assigned a spare capacity of an already existing facility owned by ADI. The inclusion of the MEMS product line in a division of a core product had helped keep the program going through years of not producing profit as the losses were buried......

...CHAPTER-1 INTRODUCTION Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are small integrated devices or systems that combine electrical and mechanical components. They range in size from the sub micrometer level to the millimeter level and there can be any number, from a few to millions, in a particular system. MEMS extend the fabrication techniques developed for the integrated circuit industry to add mechanical elements such as beams, gears, diaphragms, and springs to devices. Examples of MEMS device applications include inkjet-printer cartridges, accelerometer, miniature robots, microengines, locks inertial sensors microtransmissions, micromirrors, micro actuator (Mechanisms for activating process control equipment by use of pneumatic, hydraulic, or electronic signals) optical scanners, fluid pumps, transducer, pressure and flow sensors. New applications are emerging as the existing technology is applied to the miniaturization and integration of conventional devices. These systems can sense, control, and activate mechanical processes on the micro scale, and function individually or in arrays to generate effects on the macro scale. The micro fabrication technology enables fabrication of large arrays of devices, which individually perform simple tasks, but in combination can accomplish complicated functions. MEMS are not about any one application or device, nor are they defined by a single fabrication process or limited to a few materials. They are a fabrication approach that......

...Produk inti ADI adalah amplifier sinyal analog, dan konverter yang diterjemahkan analog ke digital dan sebaliknya. Dari awal di tahun 1980, komponen ADI digunakan terutama dalam militer dan produk industri. Kebanyakan komponen ADI rendah-volume atau kustom desain untuk aplikasi khusus. Keahlian desain signifikan diperlukan untuk setiap produk, dan margin yang tinggi. ADI percaya bahwa reputasi merek yang solid mereka adalah cerminan dari bakat rekayasa mereka, dan membantu mereka menjaga harga tinggi. Harga di niche semikonduktor analog juga menarik karena komponen analog umumnya mewakili sebagian kecil dari total biaya sistem. Mr Fishman, CEO Analog Devices, percaya bahwa dari harga dan profitabilitas perspektif, segmen analog adalah tempat terbaik untuk berada dalam semikonduktor industri. ADI menciptakan DSP yang termasuk amplifikasi, konversi, dan digital pengolahan semua pada satu chip. DSP menciptakan pergeseran dalam industri semikonduktor. Pasar untuk digital dan analog komponen, sekali berbeda, mulai tumpang tindih. Pembuat komponen sebelumnya semua-digital mulai menjual produk dengan fungsi analog. Pengelola ADI mengalami pertumbuhan spektakuler di akhir tahun 90an, hingga tahun 2000, didorong oleh ledakan investasi di Internet. Produk mereka berada di jantung banyak perangkat internet, seperti modem PC dan asynchronous digital subscriber line (ADSL) switch. ADI juga diproduksi komponen ponsel dan nirkabel peralatan......

...Suite à l’analyse du cas, l’introduction de la gamme de produits « Cambridge » sur le marché me semble être une bonne solution afin d’augmenter les ventes de la société MEM. En effet, le groupe de consommateurs interrogé réagit favorablement à la commercialisation de cette nouvelle gamme de produits. En revanche, si l’on décidait de lancer une marque discount située dans le « mass group » selon moi cela risquerait de détériorer l’image de MEM aux yeux des consommateurs actuels et donc de réduire le niveau des ventes des gammes déjà disponibles sur le marché. C’est pourquoi il me semble plus judicieux de maintenir le positionnement actuel dans le « medium-priced group » en lançant la gamme de produits « Cambridge ». En outre, l’idée d’associer la marque « English Leather » à la gamme de produits « Cambridge » est très intéressante. En effet, selon certains cadres de MEM cela permettrait de réduire considérablement les dépenses publicitaires liées au lancement de cette nouvelle gamme. De plus, le groupe de consommateurs interrogé affirme qu’ils associent « English Leather » au parfum de leur jeunesse et que le nom « Cambridge » reflète notamment la tradition, le raffinement et la dignité. Si la nouvelle gamme de produits portait le nom « Cambridge by English Leather » cela rappellerait donc aux consommateurs leur jeunesse tout en leur faisant ressentir qu’ils ont évolué et qu’ils sont maintenant plus matures et plus raffinés.

This was the case when CRM was implemented at Raymond. By Kushal ShahOne of India’s oldest textile manufacturers and retailers, Raymond India operates across cities and deals with different cultures and people. Knowing all these customers and doing business accordingly is not a cakewalk. To deal with this scenario Raymond India decided to implement CRM (customer relationship management) across most of its retail outlets. Know thy customer Anil Arora | Retail is all about knowing your customers thoroughly in order to serve them better. It is an age old philosophy of Indian businessmen that if you know your customers better, you can enjoy a better competitive position in the market. Before making extensive use of IT at its outlets, Raymond’s business used to run on a manual basis. In order to know its customers better, a team was formed to survey prospective buyers as well as existing customers. After surveying them they would know the pattern of their purchases, their likes and dislikes etc. This process was cumbersome for the surveying team and at times people were apprehensive about replying to questions......

...Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) is the integration of mechanical elements, sensors, actuators and electronics on a common silicon substrate using microfabrication techniques. MEMS are a hot area of research because they integrate sensing, analyzing and responding on the same silicon substrate hence promising realization of complete systems-on-a-chip. As MEMS are manufactured using batch fabrication techniques similar to IC technology, MEMS are expected to deliver high functionality at low prices. Current systems are limited by the capability of sensors and actuators, as these are bulkier and less reliable than the microelectronic circuit. In a MEM system the sensors act as the ‘eyes’ and gather data about the environment. The microelectronic circuit, which is the ‘brain’, processes the data and accordingly controls the mechanical systems, the ‘arms’ of the MEMS, to modify the environment suitably. The electronics on the MEMS are manufactured using IC techniques while micro machining techniques are used to produce the mechanical and electromechanical parts. MEMS Fabrication: There are number of methods to fabricate MEMS like silicon surface micromachining, silicon bulk machining, electro discharge machining, LIGA (in German, Lithographie, Galvanoformung(Electro Plating), Abformung(Injection Moulding)) .Only silicon surface micromachining is discussed here.
