The Cruiser is most probably a young guy in his bachelorhood stage, because of the eating habits and the indicated personality. Even if he has limited financial recourses, he still would be able to cook food at home, yet he doesn’t, and sticks more to cheaper takeaways. It seems like the cooking verity doesn’t surpasses doing frozen food in the microwave, therefore, it is clear that he is not mature enough to be in any further life stage than bachelorhood. The cheap food also could be an indicator for the social class. And yet the description very well describes the social class he is part of. The way he values those simple refined things to humans like experiences, moments and friendship, hence other by-products like the beer, food and social perception are not that important.
What best reflects Cruiser’s personality is his simple need for having a good time with his friends regardless to anything else. It is an enjoyable experience, which sticks in memory, perhaps that’s why he also values friendship so much, since it is the bond for the social occasions he likes so much. He could be considered an extroversion type of person, thus his traits are focused on raw positive emotion and enhances memorable experiences.
This is a nice promotion that is easy for someone like Cruiser to perceive. The canhole promotion targets audience who are using allot of this light beer as well as someone who just have one can of beer. This is a nice example of high involvement product, because it differs in its activities from actual box with a whole where you can score your empty beer cans or bags to an online mini game. It is simple to be involved and activities covers multiple environments, since you can play canhole at home alone, with friends, while being at friends, or even at work.

...CASE STUDY - I PRATHAMESH STEEL (PVT.) LTD. Prathamesh Steel (Pvt.) Ltd. founded 15 years before by Mr. A.M. Bapat was having booming time. At that time, Mr. Bapat, worked both in the office and in the factory and knew his men and they knew him. Production standard were always maintained and labour turnover was practically non-existing. As the business mushroomed, the number of employees has progressively increased. Thus, Mr. Bapat's greetings and conversation with his workers became less frequent. In fact, he had so many things to do, that he could no longer supervise the factory. Thus, he hired another man, Mr. Godse as a plant supervisor. As this time though the number of workers increased to about 500, labour turnover and absenteeism increased along with the labour cases. The only thing that decreased was productivity. In order to meet the situations, Mr. Bapat granted substantial increase in wages which were already high and made some arrangements for increment earnings based on merit rating on seniority. Yet labour turnover and absenteeism continue at a high rate. On investigation, it was found that the new plant supervisor lacked the patience and understanding which is necessary for dealing with the employees. When something was found wrong, he was scolding the employees but no attempt was made to find the case of faulty work. Meanwhile, labour unrest developed.

...This case study is an excellent example of how different types of parties can be brought together in a large scale transaction and how the original energy of those early meetings can be lost over time. I imagine that when Anthony Athanas was purchasing those old piers back in the 1960s many, if not all, of his colleagues, friends, and family members told him that he was off his rocker. I’m sure Athanas was looking at this land as his family’s ticket to financial prosperity and somewhat of a legacy that he could leave to his descendants for years and years to come. One of the items I wish the case would have divulged is the amount of money that Athanas had invested in the properties. For me this information would have given an insight to his net worth and how much he had riding on this investment. I assume it was substantial given his actions later in the process. Twenty years later Athanas’ dreams came true and all those naysayers were more than likely green with envy. The amount of pride Athanas’ had in his investment at that moment had to have been insurmountable. Being approached by a big time real estate development company and their extremely wealthy client, Hyatt Corporation, must have made Athanas feel larger than life and made him feel like something he isn’t, which is a developer himself. The case doesn’t give much insight into whether Athanas had any representation or anyone consulting him throughout the process. From the beginning, I saw this as matchup...

...Case Study: Acer [Name of the institute]Case Study: Acer Compare and Contrast of Acer’s “Divide and Conquer” Strategy with Lenovo’s Strategy The aim and objective of every business is to run the business in a lucrative way. In the pursuit of this focal ambition, organizations form strategies. Similarly, Acer and Lenovo also have their strategies. There are scores of aspects of these strategies on the basis of which these organizations can be compared and contrasted. The principle strategy of Acer is defined as “Divide and Conquer.” The dogma behind “divide and conquer” strategy is that when a problem is easy and understandable then directly takes actions to solve the problems otherwise break the problem into small parts and then pursue it to solve the problem (Richard, 2009). In front of the management of Acer a gigantic problem of exploring international market was lying and they were unable to exploit this opportunity. So, the management decided to opt for the “divide and conquer” strategy. According to this strategy the management of Acer to conquer international market divided the entire market. The first part of this division that they aimed at was China. According to the CEO Shih “it is imperative for an organization to be stable and get a secure position in the local market before they opt for the regional and international market (Davis, 2007).” This implies that strategy of “divide and conquer” reflects this thought of CEO. Acer is a Taiwanese brand and......

...Marcellis G. Jugo Ms. Maria Paz Magsalin BSBA-MKTG MGT3-10:30am-1:30pm/Friday Case: Gold Star Chili I. Company Profile: Gold Star Chili is a restaurant chain based in Cincinnati, Ohio, that sells Cincinnati chili. The original restaurant was established in the Cincinnati neighborhood of Mt. Washington in 1965 by four brothers from Jordan. Gold Star Chili is the "Official Chili" of the Cincinnati Bengals. Gold Star Chili was founded in 1965 by four Jordanian brothers in Mount Washington, originally under the name Hamburger Heaven. As the original name suggests, the original vision for their restaurant was primarily hamburgers. However, they also had a chili recipe that they began modifying, soon finding that customers were ordering the chili more than any of the other menu items. As a result, the brothers changed the restaurant name to Gold Star Chili and removed many of the other items from their menu. In 1993 Tony Pérez, then manager of the Cincinnati Reds and former member of the Big Red Machine, kicked off a promotion campaign for the restaurant. During his baseball years Pérez's nickname was "Big Dog", and since the chain was ready to promote their new foot long cheese coney, Gold Star saw a promotional opportunity, naming it "Big Doggie". For the promotion, the store offered customers 16-inch (410 mm) miniature Louisville Slugger baseball bats for US$1.99, and Pérez did various in-store signing sessions for fans. In the past, Gold Star Chili has also hired......

Case Study on what the store sold previous day, week and month. For example, if last week's sales figures showed they sold 100 units of coffee and net sales were rising at 10%, they would expect to sell 110 units this week. However, this was a simple method and involved no calculations to take account of factors such as national promotions or school holidays. By this most of the restaurant managers were spending lot of time to look up the stock and leaving behind no time for concentrating on the quality of food they aims to supply to their customers. Supply chain management – The new system After considering all the drawbacks of the previous way of ordering stock by restaurant managers, in 2004, McDonalds introduced a specialised central stock management system known as the Restaurant Supply Management Department. The core role of this department was to communicate with restaurant managers on a regular basis and get updates on all the local events.

This case study will cover how McDonalds manage its supply chain through its all new management system and what benefits does this brings to them.

...________________________________________________________________________ California Milk Advisory Board Real California Cheese [pic] This case was written by Professor Michelle Greenwald, Visiting Professor at HEC, Paris, for use with Advertising and Promotion: An Integrated Marketing Communications Perspective – 7th edition by George E. Belch and Michael A. Belch. It is intended to be used as the basis for class discussion rather than to illustrate either effective or ineffective handling of a management situation. Introduction In 1982, faced with declining milk consumption and a surplus of milk production, the California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB) hired the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) to conduct a comprehensive analysis of the growth options for California’s dairy industry. The CMAB, a promotional board that is an instrumentality of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, represents all California dairy farmers by developing and executing generic promotional programs for the state’s dairy products, including cheese. The SRI analysis concluded that cheese was the industry segment that offered the greatest profit and growth potential for California dairy farmers. Per capita cheese consumption in the state at the time was 23.3 lbs., exceeding the national average of 19.7 lbs. Moreover, California’s population was projected to grow faster than the nation as a whole with a major portion of the growth coming from Hispanics,...

...How to Solve a Case Study A case study is a collection of facts and data based on a real or hypothetical business situation. The goal of a case study is to enhance your ability to solve business problems, using a logical framework. The issues in a case are generally not unique to a specific person, firm, or industry, and they often deal with more than one retail strategy element. Sometimes, the material presented in a case may be in conflict. For example, two managers may disagree about a strategy or there may be several interpretations of the same facts. In all case studies, you must analyze what is presented and state which specific actions best resolve major issues. These actions must reflect the information in the case and the environment facing the firm. STEPS IN SOLVING A CASE STUDY Analysis should include these sequential steps: 1. Presentation of the facts surrounding the case. 2. Identification of the key issues. 3. Listing of alternative courses of action that could be taken. 4. Evaluation of alternative courses of action. 5. Recommendation of the best course of action. Presentation of the Facts Surrounding the Case It is helpful to read a case until you are comfortable with the information in it.

An effective compensation plan plays a dynamic role in all organizations. When an ideal compensation system is designed, it will have a positive impact on the efficiency and results produced by employees. Evaluate whether or not the compensation system at Collegiate Promotions is effective. The compensation system at Collegiate Promotions is highly effective as it is designed to attract, retain, motivate and reward a quality work force of independent sales representatives. They employ independent sales representatives to achieve more sales, faster, and at a lower cost than other recruiting methods. According to Simon (2010), in today's economy with the rising costs of employee benefits and increasing pressure from international competition, U.S. manufacturers are looking for every advantage they can get. Collegiate Promotions is able to save a tremendous amount of money by alleviating the expenses of employee benefits, compensation and all of the overhead costs associated with recruiting employees. The greatest benefit for this option is that it reduces financial risk for the company dramatically. Since the independent sales representatives work on commission, they are only paid when they complete a sale.  Compensation Master (2011) states that more experienced sales......
