Introduction

This work shows comparing of 3 companies from 3 different ends of the world – USA, Europe and Asia.

COMPARATIVE STRATEGY REPORT

Within the frame of this essay I would like to compare 3 companies: Linc energy (located in the USA), Glow Energy Public Company Limited (Thailand) and The Züblin Group (Germany) and further compare differences between the whole nations.
Linc Energy is a diversified energy company that has a significant portfolio of unconventional and conventional oil, coal and gas assets and proven UCG technology ready for commercialization. Glow Energy Public Company Limited (Glow Energy) is a private energy utility company. The Züblin Group invests in energy-efficient office properties in prime locations.

The stretch goals they established across different areas of their multi-divisional and international operations tried to reveal the considerable potential locked within their assets.
The establishment of their 4 operational divisions turned out to be beneficial. The leadership of the Presidents in the past 12 months has enhanced their team’s ability of executing business objectives.
On 31 December, 2013 Linc Energy announced that it achieved the production of an exit rate exceeding 6,000 BOPD. This showed a tripling of production over the previous year and achieved the Company’s target.

Marketing Strategy Report

...Andrew Jun Strategic Marketing 1/28/13 Marketing Strategy Report Chipotle’s expansion to China is fueled by a potentially large customer base stemming from a high urban population. Currently, there exists no “authentic” Mexican-Hispanic cuisine in China’s largest cities (Shanghai, Beijing, Guangzhou), and much of the population has never tasted Mexican food. We believe the opportunity to commercialize Chipotle in China will lead to a large success because we understand that most consumers want to experience different things, and our menu provides just that. Virtually all cuisine is Chinese, so many consumers will take a natural interest in our restaurants. This curiosity will serve as our initial marketing strategy to bring in customers. Needs: food, beverages, dining Wants: special cuisine that is distinctive from most/all other restaurants Demands: Quality food, service, and buying power To ensure Chipotle’s future in China, our marketing strategy will be customer driven and include geographic, demographic and psychographic segmentation. To explain further, China’s high urban populations will be our target markets because there will be more acceptance and willingness to dine at a Chipotle-style restaurant. Outside expansion will not be viable for Chipotle, so we will work specifically in those geographic locations. Initially, we will target the younger population, ages 10 to 35 because this age group will not oppose traditional Chinese cuisine and will be......

Comparative Shop Report of Diesel

...immediate reaction was to interview the Diesel consumers themselves. This way I would be gaining solid and reliable primary information from the most important people. I interviewed 200 males from across London, Nottingham, Manchester, and Cardiff to gain a trustworthy and dependable view. My results from the interviews undertaken are presented in graphs below. [pic] The majority of Diesel customers updated their jeans between 6-18 months. Some of the reasons why this was, because Diesel jeans are expensive they treat themselves to a pair when they can afford it, on the other hand many applauded the durability and design of the jeans so were not bothered about having too pay that much money. [pic] After carrying out my initial comparative shop report it was mentioned that Diesel had not yet succumbed to any sales or promotions, however since the beginning of January all Diesel jeans have up to 50% off. It is not clear as to when this promotion is going to end either. This information is supported by my findings too. The majority of the men I interviewed did say that they could no longer afford to spend large amounts of money on individual garments. Instead they stressed that before £100+ jeans would not have bothered them, however now they would be looking to spend below this figure. [pic] I felt that it was extremely important that I explored any weaknesses the consumers felt were an issue too. The main problem was that men would like to have some coloured......

M&S Report Strategy

...To be continue to the second part, in this report I present about the Strategic position for Marks & Spencer Company in UK clothing industry. First of all, I summarise the external environment of M&S. According to the portfolio, there are three factors that have influences in UK clothing industry: new entrants, suppliers and rivalry. In terms of future trends, the corporation tax decrease and the inflation rate remain are the signals of the recovery of UK economy, hence customers will focus on their needs and they are willing to pay. Next, the majority of UK population is 41.2% of people from 25 to 54 years old. Besides, eco system is a new trend for clothing retailers when both the government and the retailers want to protect the environment and customers. Last but not least, the development of technology creates a new buying behaviour. Therefore, almost all of clothing retailers have to develop their online shopping. Factors and trends of UK clothing industry lead to the result that the market is attractive for both existing retailers and new entrants to have profit. In terms of internal environment, Marks and Spencer has their own distinctive advantages that are valuable, rare, inimitable and non-substitutable. According to Marc Bolland, Marks and Spencer is 130 years brand name and that is the reason for trustworthy brand, employee loyalty and special culture.

Report Submission Strategies

...Feste’s insults are only “birdbolts” that do no damage (I.v.77–79). Maria arrives with the message that there is a young man at the gate to see Olivia. (We know that this must be Viola, disguised as Cesario, bringing the message that Orsino gives her in Act I, scene iv.) It turns out that Sir Toby is currently talking to the young man, but Olivia sends Malvolio out to receive the messenger. Sir Toby comes in, obviously drunk (despite the early hour of the morning), and Olivia criticizes him for his alcoholism. Sir Toby goes out, and Olivia sends Feste to look after him. Malvolio comes back, reporting that the young man refuses to leave the house until he has spoken with Olivia. Olivia asks Malvolio what the young man is like and receives the report that he is very young, handsome, and delicate-looking. Olivia is intrigued, and she decides to let the boy speak with her. Viola, disguised as Cesario, is let in to see Olivia. Viola begins to deliver the love speech that Orsino gave her, but Olivia refuses to hear the memorized speech. Viola is eloquent enough to make Olivia pay attention to her, though, as she praises Olivia’s great beauty and virtues to the skies. Olivia, increasingly fascinated by the messenger, begins to turn the conversation to questions about Cesario himself. Asking him about his parentage, she learns that Cesario comes from an aristocratic family (which, technically, is not a lie, since Viola’s family is noble). Olivia sends Cesario back to Orsino to......

Comprehensive Report on Global Staffing Strategies

...Comprehensive Report on Global Staffing Strategies Comprehensive Report on Global Staffing Strategies Mergers and acquisitions are increasingly being used by firms to strengthen and maintain their position in the market place. They are seen by many as a relatively fast and efficient way to expand into new markets and incorporate new technologies. Yet their success is by no means assured. To the contrary, a majority fall short of their stated goals and objectives. While some failure can be explained by financial and market factors, a substantial number can be traced to neglected human resource issues and activities (Schuler & Jackson p.1). As the Director of Human Resources for Clearly Heard, a telecommunications company it has been deemed necessary for me to revise the current staffing strategy in order to acquire Scene and Sound, another telecommunications company in Germany. The CEO has required that I prepare a comprehensive staffing strategy for the new expansion in order to prepare for a strategic audit of the HR systems of Scene and Sound. In order to get a complete understanding of the HR system I will also answer the following questions: What HR challenges may arise as a result of this acquisition? What unique cultural and regulatory factors (e.g. EEOC) need to be considered? How will they impact organizational effectiveness? What recruitment and selection practices will be used in staffing Scene and Sound? What mix of expatriates and internationals are......
