Walt Disney Analyses

...of The Walt Disney`s Strategy PESTEL SWOT STRATEGIC ANALYSES “Fiscal 2011 was a great year financially and strategically, demonstrating the strength of our brands and businesses with record revenue, net income and earnings per share,” said Disney President and CEO Robert A. Iger. “We are confident the Company is well-positioned to deliver long-term value for our shareholders with our focus on quality content, compelling uses of technology and global asset growth.” According to the PESTEL analysis, the Walt Disney Company has been shaped mainly with respect to social, economic and political. First, it is politically shaped because the government and lobby groups have an important role in establishing policies, requirements and competition rules. Furthermore, the local governmental rules are crucial in establishing foreign ownership for subsidiaries or business units. Alongside with the political factors, both the economic and social factors influence the group`s profitability and activity because customers and economic conditions are closely related. For instance the financial crisis of 2007 brought serious economic downturns that affected most of the activities at Disney 11 parks. The group is also dependent on oil prices, inflation and interest rates that might affect exchange rates. Social trends influence the company strategic decisions, mainly due to demographic changes, attitudes or certain fashion cycles. According to PESTEL, technological factors......

...significant stakeholders (e.g. shareholders, senior management, creditors, customers, suppliers, etc.). As well, the more obvious strengths and weaknesses, and a good cross-section of opportunities and threats (SWOT) can be identified and appropriately categorized. The initial scan should then be followed by a more careful study using some of the analytical tools mentioned below, in order to find the less obvious and often more pertinent strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats pertaining to the situation at hand. The final step will be to consider the comprehensive list of these factors that have been generated (reproduced in an exhibit to your report), and to focus on the most important and relevant items that a) have caused the current situation (weaknesses), or b) must be solved (weaknesses) or mitigated (threats) in order to rectify the current situation, or c) must be drawn upon in order to come to a viable resolution to the problem (opportunities and strengths). This final list will comprise the items that you will emphasize in the body of your report. SWOT Analysis A major starting point in solving a business problem is to take a close look at the environment within which an organization finds itself. One of the methods commonly used in such a situational analysis is “SWOT” (an acronym for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) which considers the strengths and weaknesses in the internal environment as well as the opportunities and threats in the......

Pestel Macro Market Anaylsis

...PESTEL analysis of the macro-environment There are many factors in the macro-environment that will effect the decisions of the managers of any organisation. Tax changes, new laws, trade barriers, demographic change and government policy changes are all examples of macro change. To help analyse these factors managers can categorise them using the PESTEL model. This classification distinguishes between: • Political factors. These refer to government policy such as the degree of intervention in the economy. What goods and services does a government want to provide? To what extent does it believe in subsidising firms? What are its priorities in terms of business support? Political decisions can impact on many vital areas for business such as the education of the workforce, the health of the nation and the quality of the infrastructure of the economy such as the road and rail system. • Economic factors. These include interest rates, taxation changes, economic growth, inflation and exchange rates. As you will see throughout the "Foundations of Economics" book economic change can have a major impact on a firm's behaviour. For example:                - higher interest rates may deter investment because it costs more to borrow                - a strong currency may make exporting more difficult because it may raise the price in terms of foreign currency                - inflation may provoke higher wage demands from employees and raise costs                - higher......

Swot-Analyse Mona

...SWOT-analyse Met een SWOT-analyse onderzoek je de toekomstmogelijkheden van een product in een markt. SWOT staat voor Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities en Threats. In gewoon Nederlands: sterkten, zwakten, kansen en bedreigingen. Het idee is om deze elementen systematisch te analyseren om de toekomstmogelijkheden inzichtelijk te maken en kansrijke doelen te stellen. Om een goede SWOT-analyse te maken heb je commercieel inzicht nodig: inzicht in de marktmechanismen binnen en buiten het eigen bedrijf. Een SWOT-analyse wordt vaak gemaakt als onderdeel van een ondernemingsplan of marketingplan. Het wordt ook gebruikt voor andersoortige analyses, zoals de positie van een afdeling op de interne ‘markt’ binnen een organisatie. Je zou een persoonlijke SWOT-analyse kunnen maken van je carrièremogelijkheden en positie op de arbeidsmarkt. De sterke en zwakke punten betreffen de kenmerken van de organisatie of het product ten opzichte van de concurrentie. De kansen en bedreigingen betreffen ontwikkelingen, gebeurtenissen en invloeden in de markt, waar de organisatie of het product mee te maken heeft. SWOT = sterkte/zwakte-analyse + marktanalyse Voorbeeld SWOT Sterkten zijn bijvoorbeeld: • Middelen, kennis en vaardigheden die beter zijn dan gemiddeld. • Groot marktaandeel. • Goed imago of grote naamsbekendheid. Zwakten zijn bijvoorbeeld: • Middelen, kennis en vaardigheden die slechter zijn dan gemiddeld. • Slecht of beschadigd imago. • Te hoge......

...L’entreprise Analyse PESTEL : Politique fiscale : puisque l’entreprise retire ses revenus des impots et taxes, les politiques fiscales ont une incidences directes sur elle. Par exemple, si les taux d’imposition ou les taces venaient à changer, les revenu de l’entreprise augmenteraient ou diminueraient en fonctions de la variation des taux. EX. : La Déduction pour Gain en capital de bien admissibles offerte aux particuliers, étaient de 500 000 puis elle est passée à 800 000, ce qui implique que les premiers 800 000 de gain en capitale pour certaines disposition de bien (par exemple : de la disposition d'actions admissibles de petite entreprise) pour un particulier sont déductible d’impôt ce qui provoque une perte de revenu. Sociologique ou Économique : puisque le système fiscale est à taux progressif en fonction des revenu imposable, la démographie?? influence les revenus que RQ peut obtenir. En effet, le plus haut taux marginal d’imposition est de25.8% au québec , donc si la plus grande majorité de la société gagne un revenu imposable de plus de 102 040 $, les revenu eventuels sont de 32 308 jusqu’à 55 355 pour les revenus imposable de 150 000 pour les particuliers. Or si les particuliers gagnent un revenu imposable de moins de moins de 14 281, ils ne sont pas imposés, donc les revenus potentiels sont nuls. De la même façon, si les entreprises ont un revenu imposable inférieur à 15 000 000 elles ont droit à la déduction pour petite entreprise (pouvant aller de...

(Raytheon.com) Background and History Raytheon was founded in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1922, as the American Appliance Company, by Laurence K. Marshall, Vannevar Bush, and Charles G. Smith. Marshall and Bush were engineering students, while Smith was an inventor and scientist, but they were all entrepreneurs. After failures to market an idea for a new refrigerator the trio began to focus on electronics. (Raytheon, Wikipedia.com) An idea that Smith and Bush had worked on years earlier, “a new kind of gaseous tube that would allow radios for the first time to be plugged into a wall socket and operate on electricity rather than batteries”, would be their new direction. (Raytheon Company, fundinginguniverse.com) After acquiring a patent for the idea and because an Indian company already had rights to the name American Appliance Company, Raytheon Manufacturing Company was born.

Market Analyses

...McDonald’s | March 22 2010 | | Project 2 Market analyses | Brief summary SWOT analysis - The fast-food industry is highly influenced by governmental policies, sales rates are grooving even during the recession. The changing lifestyles of consumers to a healthier and quicker one can be seen as both- a threat and opportunity. As a threat- due to a healthier lifestyle McDonald’s as well as other fast food restaurants can lose many consumers. As an opportunity- as people are getting more and more busy due to their work, they do not have enough time to make meals at home, and they choose to eat at fast food restaurants. McDonald’s have good quality of service and promotions, which is also one of the reasons of successful marketing. The main strength is of course their huge brand they built up. On the other hand the strongest weakness is the perception of the customers that look at McDonald’s as a very unhealthy place to eat. Competitive situation – The competitive situation within the fast food industry is very hard. McDonald’s is the leader in this industry, but still it has to deal with big rivalry. There are many other restaurants and other substitute products that consumers can choose. A big variety of the “other possibilities what and where to eat” makes strong buyers power. While in the global market entry barriers are high (due to high expenses to establish a big company), in a more local market, these barriers are much lower because it does not require......
