Introduction- Issue, Past campaigns, what campaign I’m doing, provide info on whats going to be in the report the structure, and how ill be providing a creative solution.

Illicit drug use is a major problem in Australian culture as a recent study in 2012 by the United Nations has concluded that Australia has the highest rate of recreational drug users in the world (Toohey,2012). An Illicit drug can be defined as “the non-medical use of a variety of drugs which include: amphetamine- type stimulants, cannabis, cocaine, heroin and other opioids, and MDMA (ecstasy) (Hall W, Ross J, Lynskey M, Law M, Degenhardt L.,2000). Australian Governments on all levels including non-governments have been trying to fight this illicit drug problem for many years with different approaches to the epidemic. This case study will be analysing the illicit drug problem in Australia, trends and closely scrutinizing the effectiveness of the Australian Governments National Drug Campaign 2010-15 (NDC) in reaching its target audience. This case study will then be further comparing other Anti-illicit drug Campaigns worldwide and in the past to the NDC and finally providing a creative solution which may help the NDC, which may help this Social Marketing campaign effectively communicate to its target audience. The National Drug Strategy 2010-2015 is a social marketing campaign which is aimed at improving the health, economic and social outcomes for Australians by preventing the uptake of harmful drug use and reducing the harmful effects of licit and illicit drugs in our society. This is a cooperative venture shared between National, State and Territory Governments and the non-government sector. ( It was Bob Hawke in 1985 who implemented the new National Drug Strategy which is still in effect as of today and…...

Case Write Up for Lego

...Alisa Olson MGT405 Section 7 Sunduramurthy 29 November 2012 Case Write Up: LEGO Group LEGO Group has been a successful company in the toy industry since they started in 1949. As of 2010, LEGO remained a privately held company by the Kirk Kristiansen family. Annual sales reached an all-time high equaling over $3.7 billion. The company’s strongest lines were LEGO Star Wars, LEGO City, and LEGO DUPLO. Even though the company has maintained a competitive advantage, they face some seriously threatening issues. Some of the current issues they face are maintaining patents, company acquisitions, court battles, and new competition. In 1984, TYCO introduced Super Blocks, which were almost identical to the plastic brick design that LEGO has. TYCO had advertisements that stated “if you can’t tell the difference, why pay the difference”. LEGO launched a four year lawsuit against them, but by 1988 the patent for LEGO’s building block design expired, so they lost the lawsuit. All the effort against TYCO was wasted. LEGO should have renewed their patent to prevent incidents such as this one from happening. Once this patent expired, the barriers of competition were lowered significantly in the building toy market. In 2009, Disney acquired the comic book company Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion. This provided Disney with control over Marvel’s vast catalogue of over 5,000 comic book characters to be used in future publishing, movie production, and licensing operations. This......

Steele Enterprises Case Stud

...Steele Enterprises Case Study 553 X DG Organizational Development Vang, Hutho Crown College 1/19/2012 1. Problems: A. Macro: 1. I can see that the problems Steele Enterprises Company continues to face is that the teams in the company do not get along well and some of them even keep watching for opportunity to retaliate at each other especially Richard Leeman and Donna Olson. They are top chief executives and if they keep fighting, rocking the boat, it would bring confusion and conflict to the company and the company will not hit success easily without cooperation of the teams in it. Brown noted, “The organization requires cooperation among its departments and divisions if it is to be effective” (Brown, 2011. P. 296). I am sure that when teams or leaders hold bitterness toward each other, they focus on their own, personal interest rather than seeking fulfilling the company’s objectives 2. Another important matter that I realize is that Richard Leeman and Donna Olson do not realize the importance of interdependence. If they keeping fighting until either one of them become a loser and a winner, both of them would be losers. Why I said this because I see that they are top leaders and each of them leads many subordinates under their leadership. If either one of them must get fired or quit his or her job because unfair issue involved many of their good employees will feel discouraged because they are influenced by their......

...B2B Marketing Plan of FedEx 1.0 Introduction According to Hutt and Speh (2004), Contemporary businesses operate in an environment that gets fiercely competitive by the day. To deal with this intensity of rivalry the typology of business networks has experienced extensive changes. One of the marked changes that businesses are undertaking is a change in marketing techniques.

These changes in organizational buying and selling behaviour can be explained by the concept of B2B marketing.

Netflix with Data Hbr Case Stud

...y TO: Reed Hastings FROM: RE: How to deal with the challenges brought by the emergence of digital distribution of videos? DATE: Sep 27th, 2013 Considering the changes in the industry of video distribution and inner competiveness of your corporation, I suggest taking some measures to tackle the challenges. Among them, the most important thing is to build Netflix's Eco-System and segment customers to offer them different services. The basic factor contributing to Netflix’s success is highly customized experience based on the strong data collection and analysis system. Thanks to it, Netflix first developed an advanced recommendation engine, making it possible to offer every customer the movies he or she most likely watches. This not only saves customer’s selection cost, making watching movies a more relaxed and convenient experience, but also helps Netflix maintain a good relationship with those movie creators because Netflix can bring some lesser-known movies and even some movies that won’t enter theaters to customers. Besides this, the system could also predict the demand, preference and taste of customers, thus helping managing inventory more effectively with less stocks. The second important factor is the better experience customers can have when they rent movies from Netflix rather than Blockbuster. Monthly subscription without due dates and late fees means more freedom and flexibility, online browse and selection means quantity and variety...

...For the exclusive use of S. Sabrie 9-207-096 REV: APRIL 10, 2008 WILLIAM E. FRUHAN, JR. The Case of the Unidentified Industries—2006 If you were asked to visualize (in income statement and balance sheet form) the financial structure of a typical firm in one particular industry, do you think you could do it? How close to your “vision” do you think the “reality” would be? What if you were asked to do the same experiment covering 14 firms drawn from 14 different industries? How many of the 14 do you think you would get right? You may be surprised by how much you already know! Exhibit 1 presents the balance sheets (in percentage form) and other selected financial data for 14 firms drawn from 14 different industries. While there are clear differences in the financial structures of different firms within a single industry, the firms selected have figures that are broadly typical of those in their industry. Try to match the 14 firms operating in the 14 industries named below with the 14 sets of financial data presented in Exhibit 1. Use any approach you find helpful. Advertising agency (about half of total revenue derived from commissions that equal 15% of media purchases for clients) Airline Bookstore chain Commercial bank (fitted into the most nearly comparable balance sheet and ratio categories of the nonfinancial companies) Computer software developer Department store chain (with its “own brand” charge card) Electric and gas utility (with 72% of its revenue from......

THE CASE OF THE SPELUNCEAN EXPLORERS by LON L. FULLER IN THE S UPREME COURT OF NEWGARTH , 4300 The defendants, having been indicted for the crime of murder, were convicted and sentenced to be hanged by the Court of General Instances of the County of Stowfield. They bring a petition of error before this Court. The facts sufficiently appear in the opinion of the Chief Justice. TRUEPENNY, C. J. The four defendants are members of the Speluncean Society, an organization of amateurs interested in the exploration of caves. Early in May of 4299 they, in the company of Roger Whetmore, then also a member of the Society, penetrated into the interior of a limestone cavern of the type found in the Central Plateau of this Commonwealth. While they were in a position remote from the entrance to the cave, a landslide occurred. Heavy boulders fell in such a manner as to block completely the only known opening to the cave. When the men discovered their predicament they settled themselves near the obstructed entrance to wait until a rescue party should remove the detritus that prevented them from leaving their underground prison. On the failure of Whetmore and the defendants to return to their homes, the Secretary of the Society was notified by their families. It appears that the explorers had...

...CASE 41 Tambrands—Overcoming Cultural Resistance Tampax, Tambrands’s only product, is the best-selling tampon in the world, with 44 percent of the global market. North America and Europe account for 90 percent of those sales. Company earnings dropped 12 percent to $82.8 million on revenues of $662 million. Stakes are high for Tambrands because tampons are basically all it sells, and in the United States, which currently generates 45 percent of Tanbrands’s sales, the company is mired in competition with such rivals as Playtex Products and Kimberly-Clark. What’s more, new users are hard to get because 70 percent of women already use tampons. In the overseas market, Tambrands officials talk glowingly of a huge opportunity. Only 100 million of the 1.7 billion eligible women in the world currently use tampons. In planning for expansion into a global market, Tambrands divided the world into three clusters, based not on geography but on how resistant women are to using tampons. The goal is to market to each cluster in a similar way. Most women in Cluster 1, including the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, already use tampons and may feel they know all they need to know about the product. In Cluster 2, which includes countries such as France, Israel, and South Africa, about 50 percent of women use tampons. Some concerns about virginity remain, and tampons are often considered unnatural products that block the flow. Tambrands enlists gynecologists’ endorsements to......

Phurnace Software Case Stud

...Phurnace Software, LLC: According to the business plan set forth in the case, assuming the purported software capabilities were real, I would invest in Phurnace Software due to four primary reasons, including solid market validation, niche market, favorable business model and huge potential market and conservative projection. Solid Market Validation: the market validation included both primary research and secondary data collection. The team conducted several face-to-face interviews with the actual J2EE application users and posted a request to fill out the online survey on more than a dozen Java application related news groups. After the number one pain point and market interest level were determined, the team supported the statements by using numbers, scales, and percentages. In addition, the same market pain conclusion was drawn through a secondary market validation method, an independent study. Strong market validation from a variety of sources presented convincing pain points and interests. Niche Market/Industry: The software, J2Install, enables fast and reliable server deployment while eliminating configuration errors and accelerating the enterprise application development life-cycle. The dominant vendors of J2EE application servers were IBM, BEA Systems and JBoss. J2Install fell in a niche between 2 existing industries, the J2EE management software industry and the installation software industry, which simple deployment and maintenance were not their core...

...Studying Religion Darrell Wojnar REL134 September 10, 2014 Bruce Weightman Religion has always been with us. Throughout history, it has expressed the deepest questions human beings can ask, and it has taken a central place in the lives of virtually all civilizations and cultures. As we think all the way back to the dawn of human consciousness, we find religion everywhere we turn. Traditional religion is a system of beliefs that involves worship of a God or gods, prayer, ritual, and a moral code. Monotheism is the common core of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam which is the faith or belief in one God. They are referred to as Abrahamic religions because all three trace their origins to a common prophet, Abraham. As we said earlier, Judaism, Christianity and Islam have much in common, more than they do with other world religions, for instance: Consider themselves “Children of Abraham”, Started in Middle East and spread throughout the world, Weekly community worship in special/sacred buildings (synagogue, church, mosque) Practice fasting at certain special times/seasons of the year, Expect God's future intervention in the world (Messiah; Judgment Day; Universal Redemption) and Some religious/ritual restrictions (foods not to eat, special clothing to wear, times for sex, etc.). Many fields of study look at religion from a variety of perspectives, as Sociology, this is the study of patterns and trends in human societies and cultures. Researchers in this field utilize a......

Dunkin Donuts Case Stud

...Case Study: Opening Your New Dunkin Donuts Locations Lori Guiel MGT330: Management for Organizations Instructor: Lori Buckner March 14, 2016 Dunkin Donuts is one of the most recognizable donut franchises throughout the United States. Hearing the name Dunkin Donuts can instantly bring the thought of delicious donuts to a person’s mind. To be promoted to District Manager for a Dunkin Donuts franchisee is a dream come true! The District Manager position also comes with a lot of responsibility. First and foremost is to uphold the goal of Dunkin Donuts which is to “make and serve the freshest, most delicious coffee and donuts quickly and courteously in modern, well-merchandises stores” (Dunkin Brands, 2014). In order to uphold this goal as District Manager, I must create a job design; determine the correct organizational design for the franchises; have solid recruiting and selection; and last but not least train employees properly and provide supreme performance appraisals. JOB DESIGN Dunkin Donuts, as with any organization, relies heavily on great employees to deliver on the mission and goal of the organization. Job design thus becomes a very integral part of any organization’s success from top to bottom. “The standard approach to job design involves three steps: (a) job analysis, (b) job description, and (c) job specification.” (Baack, Reilly & Minnick, 2014). Job analysis is going to be a key component to making the five new locations successful. Company...

...Committee (APMC). So it’s extremely unlikely that farmers will actually benefit from the FDI investments. The only way the huge gap between the price at the farm gate and at the shop can be bridged is by allowing the farmer to sell his own produce. Currently, they have to pay a deposit of Rs 1 crore, just to get a licence to sell in the bigger APMCs. But agriculture traders will ensure that farmers never get the opportunity to sell on their own. In the past, some stores of Reliance Retail were, in fact, ransacked by traders, forcing the company to shelve their expansion plans in certain states. Players who, however, are just setting up their retail chains or are in the nascent stage of growth like Bharti will benefit from this FDI move. In the case of current players, they can at best hope to rope in a private equity player to pick up a sizeable chunk of their equity. Chapter: 1 The verdict FDI in retail: Why the politicians are illogical, and have got it wrong FP Editors Nov 28, 2011 o much has been written and said about allowing 51 percent foreign direct investment in multi-brand retailing. Over the weekend, politicians have been frothing at the mouth over the “job losses and destruction to the local retail industry” the central government’s decision will entail. Frankly, those arguments seem more driven by political expediency than any economic logic. According to a PTI report, 28 out of 53 cities are expected to place hurdles to foreign retailers setting......

FPL Group was then engaged in a number of businesses unrelated to its core electric skills, including insurance and financial services, real estate, cable television, and agriculture. The company's principal subsidiary, Florida Power and Light, was considered a well-managed utility with an emphasis on quality. However, the utility's spiraling costs had resulted in electric rates among the highest in the Southeast. Today, FPL Group is nationally known as a high quality, efficient, and customer-driven organization focused on energy-related products and services. With a......
