This is based on Michelle being able to grow 200 pounds of potatoes or raise 50 chickens if she uses all her resources for each. James is able to grow 80 pounds of potatoes or 40 chickens if he uses all his resources for each. What is Michelle’s opportunity cost of producing potatoes? The opportunity cost of producing potatoes for Michelle is not having the opportunity to raise chickens. She has the ability to grow 200 pounds of potatoes but might face a consequence of losing some, if not all, potatoes if there is a drought or if her land is not fertile enough to grow potatoes. In this instance, she might have lost some if not all her potatoes and never had the opportunity to raise chickens because she put all her resources into producing potatoes.

Marketing Opportunities

...Marketing: Improvement Opportunities BUSN300-1205A-01 Lower Division Capstone Marketing: Improvement Opportunities Apple Inc. Some of the most promising marketing opportunities in terms of profitability, increased market share and customer loyalty for Apple Inc. include attracting the business related target segment instead of just focusing and promoting the product and technology among the younger generation. They can focus on the concepts of second generation of cloud computing and provide more applications for business users. Another opportunity would be to change the marketing strategy of Apple from being secretive and conservative to more open about disclosing the features and functional benefits of its product. Apple should reward its loyal fan base by giving them a feeling of importance through empowerment. A great example would be making a separate line of those buyers who were the first to buy its phone. Additionally, it can also attract book worms and geeks by promoting their relevant applications- educating customers and creating awareness about how eBooks can resolve the issues of students and reading enthused. The last opportunity would be that of attracting and targeting the older customer base of the, population which has present Apple with one of the most promising marketing opportunities. This marketing opportunity can be classified as low hanging fruit as it only requires few modifications to the existing product or profiling of the existing target......

Sponsorship Opportunity

...Sponsorship Opportunity —Australian Poker League (APL) Introduction Research by Carter (2007) indicates that “sponsorship should no longer be seen as simply a media investment. It is important to raise awareness of the brand, but to make the most of sponsorship nowadays - and to really stand out from the crowd - sponsorship deals must be a real partnership between parties, adding value to customers by deepening their customer experience”. Lockyer (2003) agrees that smart sponsors capitalize on the opportunity to make an emotional connection with consumers, and to tie sponsorships directly for achieving corporate goals. According to the reasons above, there is a superior sponsorship opportunity for the National Australia Bank Group (NAB) to achieve corporate goals and strategies. The opportunity is to be the major sponsor of the Australian Poker League (APL) 2007/08 season. NAB Background Overview The National Australia Bank Group (NAB) is an international financial services organisation that provides a comprehensive and integrated range of financial products and services (NABGroup.com, nd: a). The NAB’s corporate purpose is to generate sustainable satisfactory returns to shareholders. The strategies are focused on the turnaround of the Group and building new avenues for growth (NABGroup.com, nd: b). By comparing Appendix One and Two, the benefits of the APL sponsorship opportunity fully fit in with NAB’s mandatory requirements and general criteria. By......

Opportunity Statement

...Opportunity Statement 1) Job to be Done: Fix the Stevens Shuttle GPS APP System currently being used. 2) Symptoms of Problems: As of right now, the GPS system takes a while to update itself and students are often confused the exact location of Shuttle. This often causes students to be delay to class or meeting. 3) Current Practice and Supporting Systems The current shuttle system obtains a certain route for the AM and PM shift. Students often check an App on their cell phones and online called Transloc transit visualization. This app is supposed to allow students to view the Stevens Shuttle on real time location. The location of shuttle often freezes on map location and it can take up to 10 minutes to show real time vehicle location. With the rate of location delay, students can’t really tell the shuttle’s current location once the location of vehicle is moved on the map. The Shuttle does not normally wait more than one minute after arrival on each destination. Once everyone is dropped off the shuttle normally takes off if they see no one around. If the App decides to freeze at that moment, students might just have to walk to their destination or wait for another Shuttle which can take up to 15-20 minutes. 4) Summary of Deficiencies with Current Practice and Products Systems a) Students are often confused to how long the shuttle will take to arrive at their pick up location. b) Students often leave campus on foot very late at night......

Equality of Opportunity

...Assignment: Equality of Opportunity Part 1: Formal equality of opportunity refers to the requirement that” positions and posts that confer superior advantages should be open to all applicants” (“Equality of Opportunity”). In essence, formal equality of opportunity advocates that all applications are evaluated on their merits and achievements. It states that positions should be offered to applicants who are deemed most qualified in accordance with the appropriate criteria for the position. Although formal equality disallows deliberate omission of people established on race or gender, it does not disallow “statistical discrimination” (“Equality of Opportunity”). Statistical discrimination refers to the use of stereotypes that are “sufficiently accurate” to treat all members of a group the same without devoting any additional resources to determine the actual qualities that are unique to each individual group member. The aforementioned comments regarding statistical discrimination may be disregarded by some as the concept of statistical discrimination is in conflict with the fundamental idea behind formal equality of opportunity. Judging people based on stereotypes that are statistically significant is an idea opposed to giving everyone a clean slate and a judgment based solely on their merits which is the core idea behind formal equality of opportunity. Substantive equality of opportunity can have two alternative definitions. Firstly, substantive equality of opportunity......

Opportunity Cost

...Opportunity Cost Paper If you could understand and apply one key concept in economics that would most affect the decisions you make in both your personal and professional life, it would be opportunity cost. That is a bold statement; therefore, you must understand why and how this statement is true. First, you must understand a definition: opportunity cost is the value of a resource in its next best use. These thirteen words are so deceptively simple that to many these words defy understanding. It is helpful to begin with a universal illustration. The most valued resource to most people is time. It is finite for everyone, considering people have 24 hours a day in which they must allocate work, family, sleep, fun, and other non-fun, non-work activities. Unless you are quite adept at multitasking, once you have decided to do something you have inherently decided not to do something else that most likely could have had value to you. That is, many of our choices among activities are mutually exclusive. If you decide to go to a movie, for example, those 2 hours will not be spent working out at the gym. In addition to the cost of the movie, you will have foregone the benefits of 2 hours of exercise. The true cost of the movie then is not just the $6.50 for the price of a matinee movie ticket, but also the exercise at the gym. Although the value of the exercise may be more difficult to quantify than the price of the movie ticket, you must take it into consideration when you......

Crisis Is an Opportunity

...Crisis is an opportunity Since the turn of new century, a crisis occurs is an obvious and normal case as each country will have the advance technologic to predict and know before the crisis happened. Besides that, most of the country will face a crisis because it is a flow. From my own view point, a crisis can bring lots of advantages to the human being and the country. Furthermore, it is a ways which can let a country reborn and restructure. Firstly, in an economic crisis it is an opportunity for the investors because most of the investors will buy or get a cheaper share at the time when economic is downturn. Besides that, the investors will earn a lot of money and income if they can hold the share until the economic get well or reach the peak season. In addition, the investors also can get a good return on their investment. Subsequently, economic crisis is an opportunity for the environment as it can reduce the pollution. Generally, in the period of economic downturn, there is lack of business transaction can make for each industry. For example, Airlines Company will reduce the number of flying because at the time of economic crisis less people will spend their money on travel. This problem will directly reduce the air pollution and save the environment. Besides that, people who drive the car will also try to spend less on the petrol. Lastly, in a financial crisis will force the human being to change their spending habit as people virtually like to spend their......

...Opportunities Opportunities 1 May 26, 2010 Opportunities 2 In today’s society the definition of the word minority is obsolete; it now makes up a more diverse group of people, than the normal non Caucasian race it originally classified. "Minority" carries with it a certain patronizing tone even when used to assert rights of peoples who have been discriminated against, either socially or by law. I am classified as a double minority, for the reasons of being African American and a woman. Two strikes against me that would make many discouraged from accomplishing goals in life, or the reverse, making an individual determine to succeed in society. Women have for many years experienced inequality in the workplace by not being equal to their male counterparts, they are often looked past for promotions and pay raises, and usually find their selves having a difficult time with co workers and subordinates. Glass ceilings have been placed in the corporate world for years, some have tried to fight this road block, but have found their selves fighting a loosing battle. Furthermore, I chose to welcome this opportunity to participate in a internship program, because I have a strong desire to be one of the double minorities who would like to conquer the world and change the ways that women, like me, have had to suffer through for many years. Diversity and educational programs have established a successful track record in implementing programs to improve the higher......

...Opportunities surround us on a day-to-day basis; however, the challenge occurs in the capturing and implementation of the opportunity. In order to capture the reward of significant opportunities, one must be willing to advocate on behalf of the cause and benefits along with the acceptance of risk factors that may and will incur during the process journey. As with any other factors in life, opportunity pose its pros and cons. According to South University (2013), pros consist of choosing the work you like to do which produces higher job satisfaction; each day is filled with new opportunities to challenge your abilities, skills, and determination; and entrepreneurs can schedule their work hours around other commitments, including spending quality time with loved ones. On the other hand, there are cons associated with the opportunities such as, staying competitive is critical and you will need to differentiate your business from other like yours in order to build a solid customer base and be profitable; the loneliness and scariness of being completely responsible for the success or failure of the business opportunity; the security of a regular paycheck; and the unpredictability of a set work schedule. Kaplan and Warren (2013) stated that a business model is the way a company applies knowledge to capture value (p.57). This statement confirms and reiterates a finding in the research of Maharshi, Arora, and Chaturvedi (2013), values are of utmost importance in the......
