Starbucks Case

...Valerie Bauer Case #1 Starbucks Due: 9/23/12 1. Based on the case information and your personal experiences, list at least five things you know about Starbucks. This list offers you some idea about your cognitions concerning the coffee shop chain. After reading the case I have a greater amount of knowledge about Starbucks. From my personal experience and from reading the case I know that starbucks is a fortune 500 company since the year of 2003. I know that Starbucks has expanded to over 16,000 stores worldwide. From reading the case I learned that Starbucks is trying to expand internationally and that they are trying to have 500 stores operating in Asia. I also know that starbucks not only sells coffee but they sell hot sandwiches, bakery items, a variety of games, and other great products. I also learned from reading the case that 63% of their employees are women. Cognition refers to what a person thinks and believes about a particular product. Consumers develop knowledge, meanings, and beliefs based on their experiences (Peter & Olson, 2010, P 21). These things that I know about Starbucks are based on my cognitions about this coffee shop chain. Knowledge about a company is important to me so facts such as Starbucks being a fortune 55 company since 2003, having over 16,000 stores, and trying to have 500 stores in Asia would be things that I would remember and find fascinating. My personal memories and experiences of going to Starbucks I always remember them......

Children’s Literature Represents, According to Valerie Krips, an Act of ‘Returning to a Past in Which the Problems of Adulthood Are by and Large Unknown.’ Is This the Source of the Pleasure of Children’s Literature for Adults?

... I for one after reading the Harry Potter series, talked to a friend about what they thought various characters looked like and we both had hugely different views, yet we had read the exact same books. Furthermore, when the film version of the story came out, we were even more shocked to see how the directors and casting crew interpreted J.K Rowling’s descriptions of her characters throughout her series. Similarly, when adults read so called children’s books, the descriptiveness of the author offers the adults an easy read where they too can imagine the characters and events in their heads, and easily escape from the stress of their day to day lives into the make believe, fantasy world that so many children get lost in. This relates to Valerie Krips’ quote about children’s literature being a return ‘to a past in which the problems of adulthood are by and large and unknown’ as by losing themselves in a make believe fantasy world, the problems of adulthood are completely forgotten. This idea is something which is agreed with by Dr Louise Joy, of Cambridge University, who stated that “classic children's books, and the work they inspire, attract older readers because they give them things they cannot find in their everyday lives, including direct communication, tasty home-cooked food, and tolerance towards eccentricity.” In his book Children: rights and childhood, David Archer states that “Being a child is the opposite of being an adult, and vice versa ... there has been a......

Medisys Case

...WEEK THREE BULLETIN: MediSys Case Medisys Corp is an excellent case to help students think through the issues involved in designing and managing teams. There are no villains in the story, just decent individuals who behave in ways that, knowingly or not, sabotage the potential success of the IntensCare project. Medisys provides an especially good opportunity to think about lessons from the previous weeks. Specifically: Daniel Pink agues in his TED talk for the importance of autonomy as a motivator. Wasn’t autonomy the operating premise of the Intenscare project? As such, how can one reconcile Pink’s advice with the disastrous scenario in the case? Also, what could Valerie Merz learn from Henry Fonda who had no authority [Merz’s big complaint] but was able to persuade people to act as a responsible team? ANALYSIS In this century, complex technologies and increasing competition in the marketplace often mandate fast time for product development. These real-world pressures make teams a logical choice for projects that require multi-functional inputs and shared decision-making. However, groups are extremely challenging entities and managers must learn how to enable their success. There were three parts to the MediSys assignment. 1. What is working? a. On the organizational side, the company is very profitable and its original entrepreneurial culture had fostered innovative thinking across the company and, as a result, numerous promising initiatives were at......

Nick Latin America Case

...Nickelodean Latin America (A) Kelly Fitz-Gerald January 5, 2014 Introduction For this paper, the discussion will be geared towards the dilemma that Tara Swan faces in regards to Nickelodean Latin America. Tara Swan is the team leader of Latin America Nickelodean launch. This project was one that Swan was extremely passionate about and therefore was conflicted when her doctor told her that her four month pregnancy was high risk. Swan had some important decisions to make and did not have much time to make them. In order for Nickelodean Latin America to thrive, a plan had to be implemented due to her extended absence which could last up to seven months. Based on the case details, it has been determined that Swan should appoint joint interim directors who would report directly to Swan’s executive assistant who in turn would discuss any issues that arose with Swan on an as needed basis. This way Swan can still be involved but have key players in place to handle issues. A number of Swan’s staff work remotely so it is not out of the question for Swan to also work remotely with the right person in place. Let us now take a look at some of the key players who would be suitable to step in as the joint interim directors. Key Players Swan had formed a team of 10 which was a lean team. She preferred to pay her team well instead of inflating costs by adding more bodies. Swan was constantly motivating......

Valerie Young

...How Personal Can Ethics Get? BUS 520: Leadership and Organizational Behavior Introduction Valerie Young was faced with an ethical dilemma that involved her boss Lionel Waters. Lionel was the CEO of the fragrance company Wisson. Valerie accidently discovered that Waters was receiving kickbacks from the two fragrance companies that they used to create perfumes. She found an invoice for commissions and fees totaling almost $35,000. The company policy explicitly stated that: “Personal payments, bribes or kickbacks to customers or suppliers or the receipt of kickbacks, bribes or personal payments by employees are absolutely prohibited.” Valerie had to decide whether or not she would expose her boss or keep quiet and act as if she did not know about the kickbacks. While all the employees questioned the work ethic of Waters they also agreed that he was the opposite of what a leader should be. A leader is defined as a person that exhibits ideas, vision, values, influencing others, and making tough decisions. Effective leaders must create hope, reflect trust, show positive emotions, and raise optimism. Waters did not possess or display any of those key components. Waters usually set terrible examples for the other staff; he spent as much money as possible in expenses and would even use company funds to finance his personal expenses. Also he often cancelled meetings or showed up extremely late, he did not contribute to the work of the team, and at times he did not even show......

...British visa. As soon as I realized what the company was doing, I quit my position and left the company. Unfortunately, unlike the case study, the company was very small, and reporting this to the police would have been difficult, as I was planning on working overseas in the United States, and didn’t want to become legally involved with the company over false visas – this could have impacted the issuance of my US visa. Also, reporting this problem to the owner of the company would not have solved anything, as the owner was involved in the illegal activities. Looking back, I still assess that I did the right thing by leaving the company, as I separated myself from an unethical business. In this real example, it is definitely is easier to understand how organizational policies and procedures can impact ethics. 3. Discuss the ethical dilemmas that Valerie is facing. Valerie is facing some difficult ethical situations. In her opinion, she is being forced to choose between maintaining the status quo by not reporting the unethical and potential illegal behavior of her supervisor, or report the unethical behavior and face the possibility of her losing her job, losing her visa, and being unable to study (for free) her master’s degree. Ethics are norms, values and expectations that determine how people within a culture live and act. Valerie wasn’t comfortable with the situation because she knows that she was doing everything correct while working out of her country and......

Bus520- Integrating Cases

...PART 5 INTEGRATING CASES INTEGRATING CASES BMW’S Dream Factory and Culture BMW, with more than $60 billion in sales, is much smaller than its American rivals. However, the U.S. auto giants could still learn some things from BMW. Detroit’s rigid bureaucracies have been slow to respond to competitive threats and market trends. In contrast, BMW’s management system is flat, flexible, entrepreneurial—and fast. Few companies have been as consistent as BMW at producing an ever-changing product line, with near flawless quality, that consumers like. BMW has redefined luxury design with its 7 Series, created enthusiasm for its Mini, and maintained some of the highest profit margins in the auto industry. A sporty four-wheeldrive coupe and a stylish minivan called the Luxury Sport Cruiser rolled off the production line in 2008. These models promise to continue BMW’s run of cool cars under its new chief executive, Norbert Reithofer. (His predecessor, Helmut Panke, stepped down upon reaching the mandatory retirement age of 60. Panke once insisted that all six members of the management board take an advanced driving course so they would have a better feel for BMW cars.) Says Reithofer: “We push change through the organization to ensure its strength. There are always better solutions.” Virtually everyone at BMW is expected to help find those solutions. When demand for the 1 Series compact soared, plant manager Peter Claussen volunteered to temporarily use the brand new factory in Leipzig,......

Medisys Case Study Analysis

...Case Study-Medisys At Medisys there were several contributions that were compelling the company to change and reinvent itself. Among these contributions the most prevalent was the fact that Medisys was losing market share to its bigger competitors who had more capital. Another factor compelling the company to change was the new leadership under Mr. Beaumont. Under Mr. Beaumont the culture of the company changed to a parallel development approach in order to speed up product development. To show that it was reinventing itself Medisys set a goal of launching an innovative world class product by August 2009. This new product that would set Medisys apart was IntensCare, and it would revolutionize hospital communication. Unfortunately there were several forces that were affecting the completion of IntensCare on time. One of these was the culture that Medisys had fostered. The environment influenced how IntensCare would be developed in order to contest competitor’s similar products. This was a product of parallel development and cross-functional teams that forced individuals to take a step back and look at the big picture. Another force that was affecting IntensCare was the behavior of the group working on the project. Performance evaluation included a measure of whether or not people worked on other projects. As a result of this some members put time into other smaller projects and not IntensCare. This was viewed as a lack of commitment by other people and fostered a poor......

J Trading Case

...Case Analysis: QUIET LOGISTICS 1. Situation J-trading (USA) Corporation started its business from Los Angeles, USA in 2000. It is a flagship company of JICO. It started exporting computer products to Australia, and marine goods to Japan. The company is a leading importer, exporter and distributor company. 2. Questions • Problems J-trading identified problems with PC helpdesk service quality and thinking of outsourcing its PC helpdesk. CMPI and Outsourcing Solutions are two vendors for the outsourcing. J-trading chose CMPI for outsourcing its Helpdesk and accordingly did the outsourcing. Now the big question is should the PC helpdesk be back in house again? Or, Renegotiate and amend the contract for better services? • Decisions CMPI was providing 20 companies PC helpdesk services in New York City. It provides low cost services and also customers provided a good image about the company. So J-trading chose CMPI as the right company for outsourcing its PC Helpdesk services. J-trading is the biggest customer of CMPI so far. • Evaluations: CMPI did not care about J-trading employees properly. They had ‘no care’ Attitude. It seems that CMPI did not have right problem skills. They fixed problems on short term basis without looking into the root cause of the problems. So problems were not solving actually. CMPI did not have understanding for Japanese protocol of behavior. 3. Hypothesis (What to do) • Problems J-TRADING’s revenues was severely affected by dot com......

Case Study

...1. About three months ago Bob Dexter, senior manager, told Nikos Takakis, that Carl Thomson meets Monica Kaminsky (Designer manager from rival company); 2. A few weeks later, Nikos Takakis found out by chance that Carl had advised a friend to buy shares in Livewire just before it announced some excellent annual results (profits had risen by almost 40%). Livewire’s share price rocketed and the friend made a quick profit; 3. Last week Nikos received e-mail from his marketing director about an electrically operated can opener, code-named DC01, which Livewire is about to launch; 4. This morning Nikos received a formal complaint about Carl from his Personal Assistant Valerie Harper. Now, I’d like to give you my vision of the problems. First of all, according to information, which I could read in the case, there is no evidence. We can’t see Carl’s labor contract, therefore we can’t see what point of this contract he broke, so technically we can’t fire him. Secondly, reading the Bob’s and Nikos’s conversation we can find the Bob’s words: “there’s rumor going round”, it means that we can’t prove that exactly Monica (Designer Manager) and Carl lead the industrial espionage which has taken place. There is only rumor. The fact that Carl meets the Designer Manager from rival company means that he is a......

Celebrity Concerts-Valerie Tryon

...Celebrity Concerts Present VALERIE TRYON Convocation Hall Friday, January 26th, 2007 8:00 p.m.. Friday night’s howling blizzard didn’t have the predictable effect on the McMaster University School of the arts Celebrity Concerts. The Convocation Hall was filled with people, not sprinkled about as the ill fated weather would have suggested. The pianist was the British Valerie Tryon, an England born naturalized Canadian who was awarded the Franz Liszt Medal of Honor for 'outstanding achievement' in the interpretation of Liszt's music by the Hungarian Ministry of Culture in late 80’s. The first piece she selected to perform was Mozart’s Fantasia in C minor, k.396; this fantasia was the prime display of Valerie Tryon’s amazing musicianship. Unfortunately, the fact was that very little in C minor was designed to reward an attentive listener; after all, very few people would take care to listen to the internal themes of such a music piece played right after arriving. Moreover, the melody and the tune radiate a ghost of sadness and mope which brought audience into a sentimental mood. The intro would have been a bit more uplifting if she were to play a delightful piece at prime tense to prepare the audiences enters into a fine musical fettle! The second piece of the evening, Domenico Scarlatti’s Sonata in G major along with Domenico Scarlatti’s Sonata in G minor, Domenico Scarlatti’s Sonata in E minor and Domenico Scarlatti’s Sonata in F major were rewarding.......
