Debasish Roy Formulation of Transitional Impact Index (TII). A Cross-Country Analysis

Document from the year 2017 in the subject Economics - Foreign Trade Theory, Trade Policy, , language: English, abstract: Over a quarter of a century has elapsed since the disintegration of former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) and former socialist nations from the Eastern Bloc. The erstwhile countries from East Europe, Central and East Asia have gradually adopted economic globalization for transition towards market economies. There has been a plethora of research works in the academic world regarding the apparent success or failure of globalization and transition economies as a whole containing strong arguments in favor and against of globalization. This research paper is aimed at identifying the major prospective markets among the economies in transition across the world. For this purpose, an attempt has been made to formulate an index of transition from socialist to market economy by means of a combination of conventional econometrical and statistical methods based on time - series study for a period of 21 years (1995 - 2015) on 19 major countries in the East European, Central and East Asia (including Russian Federation) which adopted the path of economic globalization by shedding the rigid structures of socialistic or command economy since 1990.The Transitional Impact Index (TII) would help to classify the countries in transition broadly into four categories, viz., countries with Low, Medium, High and Very High levels of 'transitional effect' en - rout...

Неустановленный автор Visual Reconciliation in Transitional Societies

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2018 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Peace and Conflict Studies, Security, grade: 8,0, University of Groningen, language: English, abstract: This paper underlines the importance of an incorporation of visual methodology into the study of transitional justice.It makes an argument for that through the assessment of visual displays on the peace walls as commemoration space in Northern Ireland, relating the reflections of the local transitional justice process to reconciliation in the country. Transitional justice uses a combination of judicial and non-judicial means to achieve its goal. Typically, there are five tools that can be used in a transitional justice process. They include institutional reform, truth, reparations, amnesties or prosecutions and reconciliation. While all can be important, tools are usually tailored individually for different transitional societies.While this paper underlines the importance of an incorporation of visual methodology into the study of transitional justice and makes an argument for that through the assessment of the peace walls as commemoration space in Northern Ireland, it can only be a starting point. Studying reconciliation through the visual analysis of space in transitional societies can be an important tool for transitional justice and this paper makes an argument for more integration of it into the field.

Kevin Jiang Globalization of Chinese Companies

Over the past 30 years, China has enjoyed the longest and most rapid economic development in history. As part of that phenomenon, Chinese companies such as Lenovo, Huawei and Haier have in recent years increasingly stepped up their internationalization efforts in order to compete globally. Despite the huge business impact and future implications, there is little academic literature on globalization trend of Chinese companies from a corporate strategic perspective, since most of the existing literature derives from a macro-economic standpoint. This book therefore provides a pioneering and refreshing analysis of the global corporate strategies and development of two of the largest Chinese companies (Huawei & ZTE), in one of the most fast-paced industries (telecommunications). Using a proven analysis framework, key characteristics of the globalization strategies of Chinese companies were identified and analyzed. This book aims to shed some light on corporate strategies of Chinese companies with global aspirations, and should be especially useful to senior executives in multinational companies, or anyone else interested in understanding Chinese corporate behavior and global strategies.

Michael Leitner Economies of Scale in Semiconductor Manufacturing

Master's Thesis from the year 2004 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: gut, Donau-Universität Krems, course: MBA Entrepreneurship, language: English, abstract: During my work for semiconductor companies I had the possibility to deeply get in touch with semiconductor industry and with fabrication lines (FAB's) being operated at different sizes with different product technologies. Especially benchmarking activity with other semiconductor companies and FAB's gave me the possibility to understand the mechanisms behind efficiency of semiconductor fabrication lines. In most of observed cases economies of scale are promised to have a great effect on production costs, which in general is true. However it happens that, especially when benchmarking different FAB's against each other, smaller FAB's are not that costly as estimated. Looking at them with magnifying glasses shows up methods how to achieve economies of scale even for smaller fabrication lines. However to understand the difference and the real lever for low manufacturing costs intrinsic analysis are necessary. The details of each of these analysis is property of the companies, however within this thesis I generalized the results obtained in the past and removed lots of numbers and facts, without removing the key message. Thus lots of graphs in this figure show numbers, that either have been turned from absolute to relative numbers or falsified numbers in order not ...

Patrick Schrott Strategies of German Car Companies in China

In 2009, the PRC overtook the USA as the biggest automotive market in the world in production as well as in sales. With economic problems like stagnating real income, rising raw material prices and credit-driven consumerism in the industrial countries the importance of the Chinese market for car companies will even grow. Saturated passenger car markets in the USA and Western Europe and low rates of motorization in new automotive markets like China focus the attention of the market participants on these new, growing markets. The focus of this study is on the passenger vehicle market and lines out why the Chinese market is profitable and attractive for international manufacturers. Moreover, it shows how to deal with the problems and how to use the opportunities regarding the dimensions of internationalization.Firstly, the PEST-Analysis of the Chinese automobile market lines out the political-legal, economic, socio-cultural and technological factors.

The third chapter deals with possible internationalization strategies for China by showing possibilities of timing and market development strategies plus options for locating business markets. This is also further established in the fourth chapter, in which the internationalization strategies of two German enterpr...

The easy-to-adopt strategies that make companies from Coca-Cola to Starbucks perennial over-performers and that you can use, too High Performance Companies complements the frameworks for strategy making detailed in many existing books, proposing a number of rules of thumb (or principles) that companies can consider when making their day-to-day decisions which, in turn, will determine their actual strategies. These principles traverse a wide range of scenarios, such as strategic changes implemented by companies, resource allocation decisions—especially towards building durable assets—and resource acquisition through inorganic means. The book adopts a reader-friendly approach by teasing out the lessons to be found in detailed cases studies from interesting companies. The writing minimizes jargon while maintaining rigor, especially with regard to the applicability and relevance of the strategic principles to different business contexts. Cites extensive evidence in support of the proposed arguments, without sacrificing readability Combines both short and long case studies within each chapter to demonstrate the general applicability of the principles presented Uses a variety of examples ranging from well-known companies such as Coca-Cola, Singapore Airlines, and Starbucks to relatively lesser known companies such as Illinois Tool Work, SAS Institute, and Heng Long Leather to show that the principles presented are applicable everywhere Providing valuable new insight into what makes a business successful and how to replicate this in a company of any size, High Performance Companies is an essential addition to the library of any manager or student of business.

International turn-around gurus describe how to rescue a company from the brink of disaster Why, even in the best of economic times, do so many apparently healthy companies fail? The surprising answer offered by the authors of this breakthrough book is «denial,» or more specifically, the inability of top management to acknowledge that they've been backing a losing strategy and to take the necessary, often traumatizing, steps required to set their companies on the right course. Using cogent case studies and lessons learned from working with Fortune 500 executives who have survived tough turnarounds, Pate and Platt vividly describe what happens when good strategies go bad. Drawing upon their experiences at top firms, they develop proven real-world turnaround strategies, tools, and techniques and show readers how to put them to work in their companies.

Thomas Osche Communication strategies for product recalls in the healthcare business

Master's Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Communications - Public Relations, Advertising, Marketing, Social Media, grade: 1.3, Anglia Ruskin University (Ashcroft International Business School), language: English, abstract: After a series of cardiac implantable device recalls hit the industry in the year 2005 the question of a favourable corporate communication strategy about inevitable product recalls was raised. Knowing that it is impossible to produce 100% failure free products I was personally interested in seeing how such recalls occurred and how successful they were handled by the different companies from a communication perspective. This thesis analyses such device recalls since the year 2000 and attempts to identify a favourable communication strategy for the companies involved in such recalls in the future. Qualitative analysis was performed on various secondary data sources to find positive and negative aspects of different communication strategies for the affected companies. Four companies could be analysed, where three provided significant results, which were used for final recommendations. Those recommendations are provided to support active corporate communi-cation. The basis of the recommended communication strategy is as follows: Provide disclosure about probabilities of malfunctions while supportive to the most powerful stakeholders, which are the physicians and the regulatory authorities. When one company faces a recall it is favourable to take ac...

Michael Reber The influence of intellectual property rights on international business

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: In recent years governments, international organisations and companies have all strengthened their activities regarding intellectual property rights (IPR). On the one hand, these activities are a response to developments in technology, politics and international business, i.e. the globalisation processes in general. On the other hand, these activities reinforce the globalisation processes. Similar to many other global trends there is a strong interdependence between cause and effect. However, it is unquestionable that IPR have become increasing important in the last few years, both on the macro and micro-economic level, and there is ample evidence to believe that this trend will accelerate in the future. Today, and even more in the future, nobody can afford to ignore the implications of IPR, neither governments, nor management boards. Intellectual property is one of the key tools of future international business. Most international companies have already included related topics like intellectual capital or intangible assets into their business strategies. However, also governments have to recognise the growing importance of intellectual property rights. The legal framework for IPR is a considerable factor of the success of their national economies and hence the wealth of their countries. This thesis analyses the influence of IPR on countries and companies. In addition to the economical aspects of IPR, the historical, philosophical and other factors are...

Master's Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1.3, University of applied sciences Frankfurt a. M., language: English, comment: Quote of the supervisor of this masterthesis in his evaluation report: "As a result, the thesis has become a handbook for foreign companies and managers in China" , abstract: This thesis deals with the characteristics required of the leader of an international European company's outpost in China. It provides a synthesis of current theories, builds context based on supporting literature, and is complemented by a survey of the different experiences of local managers to identify contemporary issues. In the past, companies expanded operations to China first and foremost to profit from the cost advantage that China offered. Meanwhile, increasing consumer purchasing power and a developing preference for brand name and luxury goods make the Chinese market a dynamic one that offers international companies substantial potential. This market sales potential has become the main driver. Different forms of market entry are available for specific company strategies. The most common are the representative office, a joint venture, and the wholly foreign owned entity. In spite of the positive developments in the Chinese market, numerous challenges await companies planning to establish a local business unit.

Fenghua Tang Marketing strategies of Chinese companies

Ten or fifteen years ago global business was mainly in the hands of a select number of multinational giants. Small and medium-sized business concentrated on their home markets and perhaps one or two neighboring countries. Not so any longer. Even the smallest businesses have realized that they have something to market in distant countries. Under these circumstances, Chinese companies of all sizes in various industries have recently opened to foreign competition. According to the Chinese Commerce Ministry's new release on relevant report, the Chinese foreign investment reached a new record of 26,51 billion US-Dollars in 2007. This represented a growth of 25,3 percent compared to 2006. After the quantity expansion, the quality offensive comes silently. Today, Chinese companies throw not only millions of T-Shirts, toys or plastic bowls in the international market but also wireless LCD-televisions, telecom-equipment and precision tools as well. Chinese companies have realized that a competitive advantage based on low costs, low prices and large quantities in a global economy cannot defend itself long. Consequently, they focus consistently on innovation and brands. In addition, China's globalization also needs strong mental forces. China does not just want to be a world factory, but instead be an internationally competitive market place that Western competitors already are.In the involvement of Chinese companies abroad aimed at specific markets, several strategies are recog...

Whereas previous research concentrated on articulating what global strategies look like in large multinational companies with decades of experience in operations abroad, The Leap to Globalization focuses on how globalizing is realized over time in companies that start from a narrow geographic base. Three characteristics differentiate globalizing as observed in current practice from simple international expansion. First, globalization implies a redefinition of customer value; second, globalizing is an entrepreneurial process that transforms the company; and third, speed plays an essential role in globalization.

This creates a new potential for companies with a strong history in retail to win online as well.FORGET REACH, START SELLING starts by explaining why most companies find it so hard to make e-commerce sufficiently profitable. Ger van den Buijs uses well known retail sales strategies to explain what the strengths and weaknesses of e-commerce are. Due to the lack of differentiation, price is the only marketing instrument e-commerce currently has. The focus in e-commerce is to grow sales by expanding reach. This strategy backfires, because the total sum of digital marketing is overloading the customer. The cost of marketing is rising, while its effectivity is decreasing. As a consequence of the information overload, attention is a customer's most scarce resource. This requires new strategies. Ger van den Buijs hands you three new strategies. The direction of these strategies is first demonstrated in three showcase interviews with salespeople that managed to be successful in a time of hefty competition.The first strategy is 'Vocification', meaning: "activati...

Ursula Katharina Wolter BOT-Projects in Asia

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: The rapidly developing economies in Asia are undergoing unprecedented growth. This explosive development has placed incomparable demands on the existing infrastructure in many countries. Governments struggle with the challenge of providing modern, efficient, and affordable infrastructure services for their people; finding it difficult to finance what are often multimillion dollar projects on their own. Involving the private sector in the financing and operation of infrastructure promises several benefits for both parties. With a share of over eleven percent in German foreign trade, exports to Asia are – in terms of volume – now two percent higher than those to the USA. Many German companies have taken on public private partnerships as a form of cooperation and thus play a part in the sustainable development of the Asian economies. To date the most common sub-type of private participation in infrastructure is the BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) model, where a project company finances and constructs new infrastructure and operates that infrastructure over a long-term period, before it is transferred back to the government. But despite the long history of projects of this type, only a few are very successful and usually mean more costs than income to the companies. Eurotrain, a joint venture between rail giants Alstom and Siemens, proved in May 1998 it was ready to build Taiwan’s US$ 14 billion high-speed rail (BOT) project, with a successful test-run of its...

Gabriella A. Madsen Finding Home. Sense of Community for Previously Homeless Young Adults in YMCA Transitional Housing

Master's Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Social Pedagogy / Social Work, grade: 3.78, Northwest University, course: transitional housing, young adults, homelessness, mixed income housing, psychological sense of community, language: English, abstract: Homeless young adults represent a failure of the U.S. social services system to prevent new generations of homeless people. However, several organizations are working in concert with communities and governments to combat this problem through transitional housing programs that target young adults ages 18 to 24. Many of these programs mirror the new urban development trend of mixed-income housing, and place transitional houses inside stable neighborhoods that are either affluent or mixed-income themselves. While these programs represent monumental commitments in terms of resources, they also represent hope for many young adults. The sense of community these young-adult residents feel toward their neighborhoods and programs have lasting effects on the residents' abilities to find normalcy inside the American culture through access to education, safety, and employment. This study examines the YMCA Young Adult Services Program for transitional housing, exploring how the program works and what is residents' psychological sense of community.

Christian Schmitt Brewing Industry Analysis

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich BWL - Industriebetriebslehre, Note: 1,7, University of West Florida, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In the brewing industry exist two profitable segments: The big, global breweries and the small, specialist brewing companies. Companies, who do not differentiate from its competitors or do not have the critical mass, find themselves in a "stuck in the middle"-position. They need to adapt their strategy to find an alliance, or look for differentiation. The advantages of the global brewing companies are: They have bigger cash reserves on hand to survive in competition, posses a better market access and distribution network, profit from economies of scale, have strong market positions, as well as well-known and strong brand names. The small breweries sell beer in their niche with special taste, image or regional background.The beer consumption in the mature market of Western Europe and North America stagnates. New markets emerged in Eastern Europe, Asia and Latin America. The industry becomes more global. The big breweries expand in these emerging markets by acquiring regional companies. The concentration process of the past years is expected to continue.In the traditional beer markets, job opportunities are not good. Breweries replace employees only in the range of normal fluctuation. In contrast to the emerging markets, where the need of specialist is high and the job opportunities are very good.The brewing industry has also to...

Sean Miller Private Equity Investment - A theoretical Analysis of Process, Parties and Requirements

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich BWL - Investition und Finanzierung, FOM Essen, Hochschule für Oekonomie & Management gemeinnützige GmbH, Hochschulleitung Essen früher Fachhochschule (-), Veranstaltung: Investment & Controlling, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The majority of companies are in need of investment capital to pursue their growth strategies. Also, a large number of companies only display a low equity ratio and as a result possess bad credit worthiness. In this regard, Private Equity represents a good alternative solution providing investment capital. It allows companies to make investments to solidify or improve their position among the competitors on the market. In times where banks and credit institutions exercise restraints, the interest of companies in Private Equity even increases. Nevertheless, particularly in Germany the growing importance of Private Equity is accompanied by great controversy. One group argues that often the Private Equity investors in their function as majority shareholders neglect the sustainable development of their portfolio companies in favor of their temporary value increase. On the other hand numerous studies indicate that companies benefit from Private Equity investments. According to these studies, companies, which have entered cooperation with Private Equity investors, comparatively, display stronger revenue growth and productivity and also generate more jobs.1 In this respect, the quality of the partnership betw...

Dr. Thomas Zachariah Applying Knowledge Management to Build-to-Order Processes in Manufacturing and Service Companies

Knowledge management differs from expert systems as the latter is more attuned to integrating all available sources of data, information and knowledge into a single, unified system of record. Furthermore, the capturing of tacit and explicit knowledge and its use in streamlining business processes differentiates knowledge management systems from expert systems.The purpose of this study is defining the practical, pragmatic and replicable approaches to knowledge management as it relates to the build-to-order and mass customization strategies of manufacturing and services companies in the United States. The overall research question guiding this study is: How is knowledge management being used today to streamline and make more efficient service strategies of manufacturing and services companies? The research is descriptive and empirical in nature because the primary data were collected using the survey method through fact finding technique such as a questionnaire. The results show the integration of increasing role-based knowledge management in the workflow of a company.From this study, a knowledge sharing maturity model is derived, which illustrates how the level and extent of the exploitation of knowledge in build-to-order and quote-to-order strategies have a long-term impact on the financial performance. Based on these findings, a causal relationship emerges from how a company manages its knowledge in the build-to-order and quote-to-order strategy based on these findings, and ...

Nikolina Saric International Market Entry Strategies of Multinational Enterprises (MNEs) in Emerging Markets

Master's Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1, University of Vienna, language: English, abstract: Multinational enterprises (MNEs) are becoming increasingly present on the global market. Since their products and services are offered globally, their multinational strategies must be adapted to different cultures, environments of target countries and their internal strengths. Since the market in the 21st century is oversaturated, it is no wonder that more and more MNEs are targeting emerging markets for multiple business opportunities.Since markets are very dynamic, entry strategies chosen by MNEs must be up to date with market changes. Although MNEs are present in the global market and well acquainted with its dynamics, entry into certain countries is not always an easy task.The main concern of this thesis is to evaluate international entry strategies of companies operating in fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) industries in China and India. Additionally, the thesis aims in exploring and evaluating the consistency of the market entry strategies performed by one specific company (P&G) and two different theoretical frameworks, namely:- Resource-Based Theory by Grant (1991) and- Eclectic paradigm (OLI) by Dunning (2000).For the purposes of this thesis I concentrate on one of the largest and best-known MNEs delivering widely known consumer goods, namely, Procter and Gamble (P&G).

Laura Kalinska Trading company shares at multiple stock exchanges. Costs and Benefits of U.S. cross-listings

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 96/110, , course: Principles of International Finance, language: English, abstract: This thesis project aims to test the hypothesis whether or not there exists enough empirical evidence to prove that companies from developed countries with well-functioning capital markets have seen deteriorating benefits from cross-listing in the United States. We find evidence that support our hypothesis in light of the significant number of European companies terminat-ing their U.S. cross-listings after requirements for deregistering listings from the U.S. became less stringent in the year 2007. The trend also continued with the number of cross-listings by companies from the developed world steadily declining during the subsequent five years. The most cited reasons for cross-listing in the United States, such as greater access to investors, liquidity, a higher valuation and thus a lower cost of capital seems not to hold as strongly anymore. At least not for companies that come from countries where its capital markets have experienced a steady development in corporate governance standards so as to match that of the United States. Evidence point to the fact that the benefits that held for all non U.S. firms still hold strongly only for those companies coming from emerging economies and whose equity market standards are still well below that of stock exchanges in the United States.

Master's Thesis from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 0,9, University of St Andrews (Management), course: Global Business Strategy, language: English, abstract: During the last few decades, globalization has created an increasingly competitive landscape and with established markets becoming saturated, multinational enterprises (MNEs) have turned towards emerging markets in order to capitalise on new opportunities for economic growth (London and Hart 2004). Especially through the recent global crisis, the key role of developing and emerging countries, as they have sought to sustain global economic growth, has become the focal point of worldwide interest (Rao 2010). According to McKinsey (2010), "an ongoing shift in global economic activity from developed to developing economies, accompanied by growth in the number of consumers in emerging markets, are the global developments that executives around the world view as the most important for business and the most positive for their own companies profits over the next five years."
