Reflection The value proposition assignment was focusing on the marketing side of the business sector. Since Marketing is a topic that businesses focus a lot on it was a very interesting to write a value proposition for a product that we think has helped people a lot. I feel good about that I have chosen a product that has changed the people connect in this technology-advanced world. I wrote a well-rounded value proposition that explained what the product is and how it will help people if they use it. I spent about four hours that included doing the value propositions, answering the questions and writing the reflection. I think I had given decent amount of time to all parts of the assignment. I spent a lot of time deciding the product and then choosing the most important point about it that has transformed my life. The biggest challenge was to stay in the limit of 140 characters for the value proposition. I think I could have described more benefits of the product if the world limit was more than the 140 characters. I see room for improvement in developing a better value proposition since this was the first time I wrote a statement about marketing a product. I think I deserve a 5 on this assignment since it was very well thought and has involved a lot of effort. From posting these responses on Facebook and Twitter it has increased my confidence in writing. I think it helps a lot to use public forums to get out the message and how companies use theses forums to market the product. Since we are in the era of globalization it is very important for us to use these types of public…...

Proposition 36

...Proposition 36 California’s Proposition 36 seeks to revise the harshest Three-Strikes law in the United States. The Three-Strikes Law, which was passed in 1994, states that any person convicted of three felonies automatically receives a life sentence, no matter the degree of the third felony. The notion that was given when the law was passed was that it would only be enforced for violent and serious criminals, but recent cases in which some felons have been sent to prison for something as minor as stealing a piece of pizza, have proved otherwise. If passed, Proposition 36 will likely fix most of the concerns that those opposed to The Three-Strikes Law possess. Supporters of the proposition state that Proposition 36 will lower the number of prisoners in California State Prisons, reducing overcrowding, while also saving the State of California an estimated 70-100 million dollars annually, which could be spent to aid other problems that are currently affecting California such as education. However, those who are opposed to the Proposition argue that even with the revision of The Three-Strikes Law, it is still too automatic and the reduction of crime as a result of the law is insignificant. The concern that some have with the Three-Strikes Law for being too automatic, was an issue from the day the law was first drafted. Only 17% of the U.S. public, support mandatory sentencing under the Three Strikes Law without any consideration to the degree of the third defense. There are......

(The paper should use APA formatting, and be at least 3 double-spaced pages; 1” margins) Enclosed after #3 2. List the states in which same-sex marriages are recognized. In the United States same sex can legally marry in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, and Vermont and Washington, DC. New York, California, Rhode Island, New Mexico and Washington, DC recognize marriages by same-sex couples legally performed elsewhere. California - With the passage of Prop 8, gay and lesbian couples who were married between June and November 2008 are still legally married, but no new legal marriages can be performed in California. 3. In one paragraph, write a statement that you would use to minister to an individual that wants to get further information on why homosexuality is an abomination. Be not deceived, God is not mocked; whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap. He that soweth to the flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption but he that soweth to the spirit shall of the spirit reap life everlasting. Homosexuality is a sin of the flesh and carries a stiff penalty. Romans 1:24-28 tells us that God will give them up to uncleanness because of the lust in their hearts and for......

Wyndham's Byrequest Program - Value Proposition

...The theory of Value Proposition indicates that a target market's valuation of a product can be derived by analyzing the benefits of that product to the target market and weighing the costs of choosing that product. To examine the benefits, one must review both the points of parity, features of a product that are the same as the competition or next best alternative, and the points of difference, features of a product that are superior to the next best alternative (Mgmt 205 Course Reader, pg 17 "Customer Value Propositions in Business Markets). For this analysis of Wyndham International Corporation's ByRequest value proposition, it can be argued that Marriott Hotels and Resorts and it's Marriott Rewards points program is the next best alternative to a potential Wyndham guest due to statistics that indicate that Marriott Hotels and Resorts had the highest occupancy rates in the surveyed years 1997-2001 (Case Exhibit 5) and had the highest percentage of people with incomes exceeding $50,000 per year who preferred the Marriott brand over hotel/motel brands in 2000 and 2002 (Case Exhibit 6). Also, the target market can be defined as "the average upscale traveler who, on average, takes 12 to 14 trips a year", corporate travelers in particular (Case Page 13), as it is the business traveler who usually is the primary decision maker for business trips (Case Exhibit 6). The point of parity between Wyndham's ByRequest program and the Marriott Rewards program is that both reward......

...up for Missed Class Case: Customer Value Propositions in Business Markets Basic Case Identification Who is/are protagonist(s) or decision maker(s)? Companies that offer a service product to a customer What is the primary decision that must be made? What constitutes a customer value proposition and what makes one persuasive to the customer? Primary Alternatives to Consider for Value Propositions 1) All Benefits - preferred by most managers; - list all the products benefits; - requests the least knowledge about customers and competitors; - negative: benefit assertion (features may have no value for the customer, not knowing anything about the customer or competition may have as an effect missing the points that make the differentiation from the competition and for the customer); 2) Favorable points of benefits – recognizes the existence of the alternative - requires to know the differences between own product and next best alternative and the customer’s requirements; - drawback: value presumption (assumed points of difference may have no value for the customer); 3) Resonating focus- the most valuable - requires a complete understanding of the customer needs and how you can fulfill this through features that are superior to the customer’s offering; - requires extensive research.

Customer Value Propositions in Business

...customer value propositions: UNDERSTAND CUSTOMERS’ BUSINESSES Invest time and effort to understand your customers’ businesses and identify their unique requirements and preferences. Example: The resin manufacturer deepened its understanding of key customers in several ways. It enrolled managers in courses on how painting contractors estimate jobs. It conducted focus groups and field tests to study products’ performance on crucial criteria. It also asked customers to identify performance trade-offs they were willing to make and to indicate their willingness to pay for paints that delivered enhanced performance. And it stayed current on customer needs by joining industry associations composed of key customer segments. SUBSTANTIATE YOUR VALUE CLAIMS “We can save you money!” won’t cut it as a customer value proposition. Back up this claim in accessible, persuasive language that describes the differences between your offerings and rivals’ that matter most to customers. And explain how those differences translate into monetary worth for customers. Example: Rockwell Automation precisely calculated cost savings from reduced power usage that customers would gain by purchasing Rockwell’s pump solution instead of a competitor’s comparable offering. Rockwell used industry-specific metrics to communicate about functionality and performance— including kilowatt-hours spent, number of operating hours per year, and dollars per kilowatt-hour.

Categorical Proposition

...Categorical propositions and classes. | | A. The long range goal is to give a theory of deduction, i.e., to explain the relationship between the premisses and conclusion of a valid argument and provide techniques for the appraisal of deductive arguments. Hence, we will be distinguishing between valid and invalid arguments. | | | 1. A deductive argument is defined as one whose premisses are claimed to provide conclusive evidence for the truth of its conclusion. | | | 2. A valid deductive argument is one in which it is impossible for the premisses to be true without the conclusion being true also. | | B. Our study of deduction, for the present, will be about arguments stated in categorical propositions, e.g., | | | No honest people are persons who embroider the truth. Some politicians are persons who embroider the truth. Some politicians are not honest people. | | | 1. A categorical proposition is defined as any proposition that can be interpreted as asserting a relation of inclusion or exclusion, complete or partial, between two classes. | | | 2. A class is defined as a collection of all objects which have some specified characteristic in common. This is no more complicated than observing that the class of "lightbulbs" all have the common characteristic of "being a lightbulb." | | | | Thus, we can have four class relations in the various kinds of categorical propositions: | | | | Utilizing the classes, "people" and "good beings": | | |...

Value Proposition

...NETWORKS Facebook acquired QuickFire Networks on 8th of January 2015, QuickFire Networks built a custom hardware and software platform which reduces video file sizes and upload times. The acquisition further lays emphasis on the social networking giant’s focus on video. QuickFire in its website before the acquisition said, “QuickFire Networks will provide you with the weapons necessary to meet the onslaught of the video revolution,” QuickFire uses proprietary technology to reduce the bandwidth needed to view the video online without affecting the quality of the video as the current network infrastructure is not sufficient to support the massive viewing of videos online which averages over 1 billion videos per day for Facebook. VALUE PROPOSITION USERS : Facebook’s users post and view and share videos on facebook by linking to videos from other sites like youtube. The videos viewed online on facebook averages over 1 billion videos per day. NEED: The time it takes to buffer videos depends on the quality of the video and the size, compressing the videos without degradation in quality reduces the buffering time. Users can upload video directly to its site, instead of linking to videos on other sites like Youtube which keeps the users on the service of facebook. Facebook gets more control over how the videos can be viewed and can be placed around advertising. PRICE: As QuickFire compresses the videos without affecting the quality of the video, the buffering time is......

States like Florida, Arizona, and Oregon have passed successful propositions which have hindered safe livestock husbandry.

They just have 116 square inches of space, how do you think? What a horrible things! That's less than a one-foot by one-foot space that a chicken has to live in all its life. I'm not rich, but I want to pay extra for free range because I don't like to eat food from tortured animals if I can avoid it. It also made me care about the eggs’ health, foot by foot space for chicken’s live would like a incubator,thousands and thousands......

Mm Proposition

...------------------------------------------------- Modigliani–Miller theorem From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia The Modigliani–Miller theorem (of Franco Modigliani, Merton Miller) forms the basis for modern thinking on capital structure. The basic theorem states that, under a certain market price process (the classical random walk), in the absence of taxes, bankruptcy costs, agency costs, and asymmetric information, and in an efficient market, the value of a firm is unaffected by how that firm is financed.[1] It does not matter if the firm's capital is raised by issuing stock or selling debt. It does not matter what the firm's dividend policy is. Therefore, the Modigliani–Miller theorem is also often called the capital structure irrelevance principle. Modigliani was awarded the 1985 Nobel Prize in Economics for this and other contributions. Miller was a professor at the University of Chicago when he was awarded the 1990 Nobel Prize in Economics, along with Harry Markowitz and William Sharpe, for their "work in the theory of financial economics," with Miller specifically cited for "fundamental contributions to the theory of corporate finance."
