Strastrategic and Operational Plans for Liberty Global Inc

...Introduction Benjamin Franklin is accredited for the saying “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” Winston Churchill is accredited for saying "He who fails to plan is planning to fail." Both are correct and relevant in today’s business environment. Planning is the cornerstone of any successful business. Today’s planning is governed by two leading processes, strategic and operational planning. I will review the attributes that both plans embody with relations to SWOT analysis conducted on Liberty Global Inc. Strategic and Operational plans for Liberty Global Inc. Strategic planning is a top-down approach provided by top management that defines; goals, objectives, and direction of the organizations for the next three to five years (Robbins & Coulter, 2012). It lays the foundations for growth, improving productivity, and to improve return on investment for the organization’s investors. Operational planning details how the organization will accomplish the goals, objectives, and strategies outlined in the strategic plan. Operational planning is a bottom-up approach that addresses the needs and performance of the organization in the short-term, one-year and under. It addresses the question, what are we going to do this year and how. The operational plan should be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that it is on target.

...quality crepes, and good, but not necessarily low prices. The role for “Holy Crepe” resides somewhere between consumers who want to be waited on and people who want a fast lunch for less. Since we will provide cafe-like tables for people to sit and enjoy their crepes, this will attract potential customers from the traditional restaurant chains. The food is made fast and is relatively inexpensive, considering the quality of food. There is also the need for eating in a clean, wholesome environment. There are many people who will not set foot inside a fast food restaurant due to 1) the restaurant's lack of cleanliness and 2) the relative poverty and despair displayed by the people working in these fast food restaurants. To address this need, we plan to provide our employees with wages 35% higher than traditional FFRs in the region. We will not degrade our employees by forcing them to wear polyester uniforms, and we will offer two group outings a year for the employees, funded entirely by the company. As for cleanliness, we will expect the highest standards from both our employees, and our location. The goal will be to ensure that tables are cleaned within three minutes of being left. Floors will be cleaned every 4 hours, and all kitchen supplies and countertops will be maintained to the highest standards. Market Trends The market for fast food is becoming more demanding. While marketing fast food only as "healthy" could amount to corporate suicide, there is a trend towards......

...Super Power for Supermarkets ICSA researcher Gillian Westbrook takes a closer look at the power of supermarkets In the current recessionary times, it seems that price wars for food are going to be an increasing part of the retail landscape. To gain competitive advantage, retailers respond by reducing prices, a strategy that suggests to the shopper that the retailer is making less profit on their goods than in previous times. Consumers are pleased to save a few euro on their weekly shop, and are probably blissfully unaware of just who is taking the hit for the price reduction. Farmers, however, know only too well from whom the margins are being sought. Producer margins have been eroding year on year, leaving many farmers reflecting on how the economics of their business seemed more attractive thirty years ago. The relationship between farm-gate price and the rising high levels of retail and supply concentration are not mutually exclusive and should not be underestimated. There have been many factors that have impacted on farm-gate prices. BSE for example, occurred at a time when there was a major shift in EU retail concentration and very likely created opportunities for retailers to exert their power over suppliers. Various aspects of market consolidation and issues concerning food safety have all had serious detrimental consequences to the farmer. Unlike BSE, however, the matter of eroding farm-gate prices and the power of the retailers to control prices has received limited...

Strategic and Operational Plans

...Strategic and Operation Plans MGT/521-Management Strategic and Operational Plans Planning involves defining the organization’s goals, establishing strategies for achieving those goals and developing plans to integrate and coordinate work activities (Robbins & Coulter, 2012). Before planning can occur, review the mission and/or vision statement as the goals will reflect those statements. Another important aspect to planning is performing a SWOT analysis. A SWOT is an internal and external analysis of the organization’s strength, weakness, opportunities and threats. After a SWOT analysis has be performed, managers are ready to develop the strategic and operational plans by exploiting the strength and opportunities and reducing the threats and fixing the weaknesses. The strategic and operational plans will be based on the SWOT analysis. Strategic Plans The strategic plans establish the organization’s overall goals. For Pfizer, that is to be the premier innovative biopharmaceutical company. There are several way Pfizer can achieve that goal. One is by its large acquisition deals that will strengthen its R&D pipeline portfolio in the different therapeutic areas. Another is by utilizing this strong commercial infrastructure and sales infrastructure. Utilizing their external stakeholders such as doctors and patients, to gather information on their products via their sales force. The organization is well diversified geographically.
