Tropical Delight Softdrinks

...Tropical Delight Softdrinks Problem Statement Tropical Delight Soft drinks is a small Canadian company that has a narrow line of drinks with only three flavours that was relatively unknown in the Canadian market but popular in markets of parts of Asia, South Asia and Tropical countries. Situation Analysis Strengths – The soft drinks were made with 30% real juice, which is more appealing to consumers who want natural flavours. The products were healthy and contain real fruit juices. Although the company had a small market share, their sales increased steadily over the years. Weaknesses – They had a narrow line of products with only three flavours, which were relatively unknown in Canada. Although sales increased steadily, they incurred some major costs in to import the fruit concentrates from foreign countries, costs for bottle and its label, labour and admin costs and also to distribute the drinks to local convenience stores and supermarket chains.

What Are the Main Motivation Theories and How Could Science of Delight Replace Them?

...hierarchy. There are five main categories physiological needs (food, clothes, accommodation), safety (security from danger, safe working conditions), social (need to make friends and feel like you belong somewhere), esteem (having respect for others and self respect) and self-actualisation (achieving ones potential through actions and achievements). Maslow believed that if these were achieved then the maximum potential of the employee can be seen. Science of delight could easily replace this theory as one of the main issues on the hierarchy of needs is self-actualisation. Science of delight is all about how if employees know what the customer wants and needs it can empower them to do be more efficient in the work place. As Maslow states ‘A healthy man is primarily motivated by his needs to develop and actualize his fullest potentialities and capacities’; this directly links to science of delight, so can science of delight thus replace this theory, if in a way it is already included in it. To prove science of delight has the ability to replace Maslow’s theory, stronger evidence that the concept works would emphasise to the employees the importance of customer relations. This would then motivate employees to do better, thus replacing self-actualisation. In turn will replace the theory as without one part of the hierarchy, the rest can not be fulfilled, thus the motivational theory will not work. Herzberg’s theory suggests that some factors have the potential to provide......

Garden of Earthly Delights

...Garden of Earthly Delights (Triptych) - Hieronoymus Bosch On the front outer two panels is a globe of Creation of the World. In it there is what looks like plants, mountains,etc. On the upper left hand corner there is what appears to be a small man. Perhaps this could be God himself peering down as the earth is being created? On the first of the inner panels (when looking from left to right) is a peaceful scene showing God bringing life to Eve and Adam. Adam and Eve, while looking at each, other are not touching in the image. Possibly to imply that this is a time before sin. Another eye-catching piece within this panel is the pink fountain with an owl in the center. Owls are sometimes used to symbolize wisdom, since God is supposed to be wise. The central panel The Garden of Earthly Delights is a lot more busy, and the first thing I see is that physical contact and emotion between humans is taking place, unlike the first panel, which indicates that sin is being brought into the picture. To me this panel represents the free spirited lifestyle that humans have been known to live throughout history. The third panel is Hell. It displays people being tortured for their sins that were displayed in the second panel. The bird like creature eating sinners and then disposing of them down a hole can be seen as a symbol as the loss of life. Around the hole in which the bird is disposing of the sinners is a man being force to puke up his food, a symbol for man taking advantage of......

Stop Trying to Delight Your Customers

...Stop trying to delight your customers was a very interesting article I enjoyed reading it and I especially liked the beginning of the article when the authors say “To really win their loyalty forget the bells and whistles and just solve their problem.” This statement is totally true because companies must delight their customers by exceeding their service expectations. Helping customers find the solution to a problem through the use of problem solving model strengthens the customer provider relationships. Just as each customer is unique, problems are unique and should be approached in a manner that allows you to gather information and take the appropriate course of action to solve it. An important aspect to me that companies really need to focus on is the front line. “Frontline employees are crucial for good customer interactions". The frontline is the first contact to the customers and the first contact is critical to problem solving because is all the customer wants first. Once the quick solution is implemented, root cause analysis, new or unconscious customer needs analysis, confirm the solution implemented or improve it in a short delay. Keep your customer and the front line posted on what's going on but do not harass them either. The feeling of being delighted is not linear; it evolves between situation and business as usual. The job of a service provider is to return to the customer to a satisfied state. Not listening, poor communication, and lack of respect are......

Fear and Delight

...Every family or town has its own tales told to children so they’d behave well, or don’t do anything stupid or harmful. In my family we had one of those, it was called home sweet home. Why was it called home sweet home? That’s because there was a rumour that a group of teenagers ran away from their families to find out what it was like to be free. They brought all they needed with them food supplies, water, warm clothes and blankets. They found a house in the woods and stayed there, after a few weeks they had a shortage on food and soon died of hunger. Tourists eventually found their bodies and buried them under the house so their spirits would forever be “free”. They say that anyone who has ever trespassed on the property has never been found or seen since. My mum told me that she never wanted me to go out alone after dark or never go into the woods. I didn’t know what to believe, I heard about this tale so much I was craving for the truth. I checked to see if my parents were asleep, and for my luck they were. I kissed them both on the forehead and whispered goodnight. I placed fresh batteries into my flashlight, dressed into warm clothes and I slid my arms into the straps of my backpack filled with equipment I might need. I put my oldest pair of sneakers on and headed for the door. I entered the woods, trees looming over me. I have been extremely paranoid since I left the house. Finally I reach the old house. The porch was completely rotten, possibly from the years of......

A Visual Delight?

...On reaching Vrindavan,one’s ears doesn’t have to wait much for hearing about a temple that doesn’t claim a historic past like most of other temples of vicinity-PREM MANDIR.It was advised that the sprawling temple should be visited after the sunset to which I complied obediently. As I reached the temple,I got stunned by its beauty.The changing colour of the temple’s lighting, seemed like changing costumes of Krishna ji, in his abode-Vrindavan.There were lights all around-the ones enhancing the beauty of the temple,the ones bringing life to non-living moving statues and that of human phones trying to encage this heaven like scene.With every passing glance,the feeling of surprise and pride in human craftsmanship reached new heights.The architecture blended well with the scene.It was only when I came out of this dream-like feeling that present triggered me-the present that was not so comforting. The thought of the half-naked beggars at a negligible distance from the temple served as an eye-opener.It reminded me of the statue creation where vasudeva protects Shri Krishna from the odds by carrying him over his head in a basket.Similarly,the money that had been used to sing of ‘’abstract religon’’,glories of god could have been used to provide hearty meals to hundreds for a hundred days!This remains a story of numerous places of worship in India.God definitely doesn’t need a lavish temple to “reside”.How about multiplying......
