Benefit Proximity: Produk atau jasa yang ditawarkan oleh perusahaan memiliki benefit atau manfaat yang sedikit lebih rendah bila dibandingkan dengan kompetitor. 3. Qualitatively Different from its rivals: Perusahaan mendefinisikan ulang suatu produk atau jasa dengan cara mengubah benefit maupun cost yang dimilikinya sehingga berbeda dari konsep awal mula produk atau jasa tersebut.

Strategic Interaction in Sports - Tv Timeouts Justified by Economic Principles

...In general, strategic interaction describes the way in which two parties trade. In sports, these trades are known as sponsoring. For instance, people are confronted with sponsoring in sports seeing logos of companies on t-shirts of a club, by TV ads which are shown in breaks of sporting events or by products we buy in our neighborhood drug store that are “officially” supporting the players of a professional soccer league. In the United States of America these phenomena of strategic interaction between companies and leagues, clubs or only team members are represented even stronger than in Europe. One main difference is the absence of TV timeouts in Europe. The main goal of this paper is to show how economic principles justify the introduction of these TV timeouts. First, it will describe the changes that have taken place concerning the advertising time outs in order to connect it to the underlying economic principles afterwards. Finally, it concludes with a summary of my findings. TV timeouts are basically artificial breaks of the gameplay to show the television viewer commercials during a sporting event in order to reach an audience as large as possible. In return, the league and the clubs receive a certain amount of money from the particular companies that desire to use the setting of the sporting event to show their commercials. As a consequence, some people might hold the view that artificially stopping the game to show commercials is not only boring for the audience in...

...question. However, Bamberger and Meshoulam “Conceptualise human resource strategy as an outcome: the pattern of decisions regarding the policies and practices associated with the HR system”. In my view, HRS is a set of ‘processes and activities’ that when implemented, result in an outcome. In aim to justify this statement by discussing the topic of human resource strategy in relation to the sub-headings listed above. By examining the reasons or ‘rationale’ for the emergence of human resource strategies in the modern business environment, the value, various strategy approaches, types and the concept of fit, I believe I can underline the importance of a well devised HRS to any overall business strategy or plan. Modern businesses and the economic environments in which they operate are very different from the organizations and economies examined by Chandler in his studies of ‘managerial capitalism’ (late 19th Century through to the 1970s). The development of technology, and the creation of global economies have resulted in a significant increase in efficient and effective competition within all industries operating in market economies. Firms con longer rely on competing aggressively simply on the reliable favorites of achieving economies of scale and creating ‘barriers to entry’ within their markets etc. Firms have become more market orientated as opposed to production focused (as highlighted by our recent study of Waterford), and this is part of the growth of the......

...Strategic planning details an organization’s processes and procedures for defining its direction and decision making, in regard to resource allocation for the pursuit of that direction. Starbucks has been in existence since 1971 and has opened more than 17,000 retail stores in 50 countries, to serve millions of customers every day. It is no secret that careful and well executed strategic planning has been a catalyst for the organization’s continued success. When taking a glance at the company’s 2009 annual report, management can see how various planning initiatives impact the company’s financial prowess. In 2009, Starbucks launched an initiative to streamline operational procedures, in an effort to provide a more disciplined focus on unit economics. According to the Starbuck’s 2009 annual report, “We focused on operational excellence – from supply chain to back-end IT systems to store operations. We also developed a better go-to-market engine, with stronger creative execution and more effective channels to reach our customers” (Starbucks, 2009). The leadership at Starbuck has reported that this initiative, along with other improvements in cost structure, resulted in $580 million in costs savings in fiscal 2009. In more recent times, one of the more ground-breaking strategic initiatives that Starbucks has launched was the purchase of The Coffee Equipment Company and its Clover brewing® system. The Clover® machine uses a proprietary brewing process and has been regarded as the......

Time-span: These decisions mostly impact the medium term and long term objectives of the company although there out come can also be seen in short term. Dedication: This means resources commitment and investment that cannot be undone simply. This is done in the marketing of the company, operation changing etc. (Haberberg A. and Rieple, A. 2008) A company's strategy refers to the when, how and why of its existence and working. It basically entails the efforts that the company's management put in to achieve its objectives that pertains to selection of type of clientele, market situation and market form, what competitive advantage to follow and how to perform successfully in long term with taking into the its implications in short term. (Thompson, A.A. and Strickland, A.J. 2003) Strategic Analysis Strategic analysis is very important for any company, whether operating on small or large scale. If an organization has a vision for long term existence then it has to follow the ground rules.
