Stakeholders by definitions are those are can be affected by an organizations actions. In this case study, the two main stakeholders are Ms. Drummond, Ted Rogers and to some extent future Rogers customers who might encounter a similar issue. Ms. Drummond is obviously affected by Rogers Wirelesses’ original decision to uphold the original charges and Ted Rogers would be affected by the actions of his representatives and the bad press generated from the event.
The issue affecting Rogers is the fraudulent use of one of their customers’ devices, resulting in the unauthorized use of their network. They also become associated with a negative press story which can damage their reputation and image to current or future users. This can also be a liability for them if this happens in the future, particularly because Ms. Drummond has set the precedent for fraudulent usage charges to be refunded. The issues affecting Ms. Drummond are obvious – the time and money she has spent handling the situation cannot be returned and she will have lost confidence in the company providing her cellular service.
I don’t believe that having tea would be appropriate in this situation. While it may seem like a nice gesture, this is not an issue that can be resolved by a light discussion over biscuits. While dealing with the legalities associated with this case, the best way to discuss any future resolutions or repayment would be with their individual lawyers in a professional setting. Having a personal meeting such as this could have implications for both parties involved, particularly as it may look as if Mr. Rogers is ‘buying’ off Ms.…...

Case Summary Ceo Felicia Larue

...The Main purpose of this case summary asked by our CEO Felicia Larue is to give a brief on the patient situation and to ensure that her rights of are preserved and the risks to the hospital are minimized. Been paralyzed refers to patients that needs the use of the latest available procedures for psychotherapeutic work, comatose and treatment for different states of consciousness. Patients in comatose states like Lydia have been traditionally considered as victims of neural pathological procedures that overcome cognitive and communicative functionalities. While the latest procedures on spinal cord injuries suggest that patients may display spaces of consciousness on the worst persistent vegetative states. Is very common that disputes arise over the treatment of patients that had been unresponsive through injury or illness for certain time lapse. Families get torn between the final decision because for some to end the “artificial life” is the alternative to stop the “suffering”. Cases such as Terri Schiavo can last years on court on a back and forth demand. Medical examination reveals apparently irreversible brain damage in a persistent vegetative state since 1990. Her husband and her family went to court battle to decide if the feeding tube should be removed. Finally her husband prevailed in court on 2005 and Schiavo died in March 2005.Others with firm beliefs wait for the miracle. Doctors in England and Belgium (Owen et al., 2005) found signs of life in a “damage” brain of...

Case Analysis About Ceo Compensation

...CEO Compensation The most visible and highly paid person in most corporations is the chief executive officer (CEO).  CEO compensation is particularly important to firms for three reasons.  First, the compensation package is likely to be important in attracting and retaining good CEOs.  Second, the form of the pay contract is likely to help determine whether the CEO focuses on value maximization or some other objective.  Third, employees throughout the organization carefully follow their CEO’s pay.  Important morale problems can occur when employees think that the CEO is overpaid.  For instance, employees complain bitterly when they are asked to take pay cuts because the company is in trouble, yet at the same time the CEO gets a big raise.             Controversy over CEO pay has increased substantially in recent years.  One charge is that the level of CEO pay is too high.  CEO pay is so huge that people don’t believe they deserve it.  It is easy to pint to many ECOS who report compensation in the millions of dollars (reported compensation figures typically include salary and bonus payments, as well as gains from the exercise of stock options).  Consider the following two examples.  Investors were outraged when E Trade Group Inc. disclosed it had paid out a $77 million compensation package for CEO Christos M. Cotsakos in 2001- a year in which the financial-services company lost $242 million.  When Cotsakos pledged later to return $21 million, the complaints hardly......

Analysis on Uniliver Case: Sustainable Tea

...Why did Unilever commit to sustainable source for its tea? First of all, there is a companywide strategy to launch a new “Sustainable Living Plan”. This plan includes goals to source 100% of agricultural raw materials sustainably by 2020. According to Unilever CEO Paul Polman, he believed that these goals would drive savings, product innovation and differentiation across the company’s portfolio. By committing to this plan, Unilever ensures to be more competitive in the future. If this transformation did not start, they would not be able to get the quality and quantity of the tea they need for their products. To adopt this plan Unilever faced two major issues. The first one was to start the transformation on the supply chain, due to the fact that the current supply chain does not yet comply with the “Sustainable Living Plan”. The alignment of the supply chain includes certification of tea production. In order to do that, Unilever worked with local NGOs and Kenyan Tea Development Agency (KTDA). Those parties ensure that the smallholders get educated and certified on sustainable agriculture. This approach makes sure that Unilever’s own production in Kenya and Tanzania as well as the small farmers in East Africa implement the new guidelines and recommendations and have been certified by the Rainforest Alliance. The second issue was how to address this internal commitment to consumers. The global brand director for Lipton Tea Michiel Leijnse, believed that Western consumers had......

Samuel J. Palmisano Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer IBM Corporation Letter from the Chairman 3 A note to fellow CEOs In the first chapter of this report on dealing with complexity, the CEO of an industrial products company calls the economic environment of 2009 “a wake-up call.” I agree. I’d only add that it was just the latest in a series of alerts that sounded during the first decade of this new century. In a very short time, we’ve become aware of global climate change; of the geopolitical issues surrounding energy and water supplies; of the vulnerabilities of supply chains for food, medicine and even talent; and of sobering threats to global security. The common denominator? The realities — and challenges — of global integration. We occupy a world that is connected on multiple dimensions, and at a deep level — a global system of systems. That means, among other things, that it is subject to systems-level failures, which require systems-level thinking about the effectiveness of its physical and digital infrastructures. It is this unprecedented level of interconnection and interdependency that underpins the most important findings contained in this report. Inside this revealing view into the agendas of global business and public sector leaders, three......

Case Study

...Challenges Faced By IKEA:- Here are some of the challenges I found from the case study- * I kea’s low valued products used excessive space on load units due to packaging design which resulted in poor efficiency in both transportation and warehouse operations that created unnecessary costs. * Involvement of suppliers was a challenge as solving the problem affects the packaging design as it affects the product design too as it got to adapt to the new packaging design where manufacturing processes are affected too. * To discover new ways to reduce unnecessary space in packaging without altering the product design. * Eliminate the problems related to filled air that takes a lot of unnecessary space during transportation and storage by finding out new methods for packaging. * Another challenge would be Increase in density of the packaging would create overload and to balance the load on the trucks is to use lightweight products to fill up the left over space. That is in short to Load balance the products of different volumes to fill transportation units in regard to both weight and volume. * For the above balancing scenario it is important to convince suppliers for a cluster supplier concept by storing one company’s product by another supplier in order to reduce space related problems. Strategic Implementation:- * Implementation of cluster supplier concept for Glimma tea candles where a major supplier of IKEA takes responsibility for......

Case Study on Mini Hydro Power Plant & a Tea Factory

...AccountingExplained * Financial Accounting * Managerial Accounting * Miscellaneous ------------------------------------------------- Top of Form Bottom of Form Home >Managerial Accounting >Capital Budgeting > Payback Period | | | Payback Period Payback period is the time in which the initial cash outflow of an investment is expected to be recovered from the cash inflows generated by the investment. It is one of the simplest investment appraisal techniques. Formula The formula to calculate payback period of a project depends on whether the cash flow per period from the project is even or uneven. In case they are even, the formula to calculate payback period is: Payback Period = | Initial Investment | | Cash Inflow per Period | When cash inflows are uneven, we need to calculate the cumulative net cash flow for each period and then use the following formula for payback period: Payback Period = A + | B | | C | In the above formula, A is the last period with a negative cumulative cash flow; B is the absolute value of cumulative cash flow at the end of the period A; C is the total cash flow during the period after A Both of the above situations are applied in the following examples. Decision Rule Accept the project only if its payback period is LESS than the target payback period. Examples Example 1: Even Cash Flows Company C is planning to undertake a project requiring initial investment of $105 million. The project is......

Case Study

...CASE STUDY: STARBUCKS COFFEE BY: KATHLEEN LEE GRC 411 CASE STUDY: STARBUCKS Brief History: The first Starbucks location opened in 1971. The name is inspired by Moby Dick’s first mate. This name and the mermaid logo were inspired by the love of the sea, from Starbucks original location in Seattle Washington in the heart of Pike Place Market. Starting as a single shop specializing in high quality coffee and brewing products the company grew to be the largest roaster in Washington with multiple locations until the early 80’s. In 1981, current CEO Howard Schultz, recognized a great opportunity and began working with the founder Jerry Baldwin. After a trip to Italy to find new products, Schultz realized an opportunity to bring the café community environment he found in Italy to the United states and the Starbuck’s brand we know today began to take form. Selling espresso by the cup was the first test. Schultz left Baldwin to open his own Italian coffee house Il Giornale which found outrageous success and in 1987 when Starbucks decided to sell the original 6 locations, Schultz raised the money with investors and purchased the company and fused them with his Italian bistro locations. The company experienced rapid growth going public in 1992, and growing tenfold by 1997, with locations around the United States, Japan and Singapore. Starbucks also began expanding its brand. According to George Garza in his article The history of Starbucks the following product lines were......

Deuxièmement nous nous consacrerons sur les hypothèses générales et inhérentes au modèle. Dans un troisième temps, les hypothèses sur tous les postes seront explicitées. Enfin, dans une dernière partie, nous verrons le prix trouvé et donnerons des commentaires sur celui-ci. Choix de la méthode Nous désirons évaluer les actions seulement. Ainsi nous ne prenons pas en compte le point de vue de l’ensemble des bailleurs de fonds mais seulement le point de vue des actionnaires. Toutes les méthodes ne concernant pas seulement le point de vue des actionnaires sont donc caduques. Une décision doit donc être faite entre ces trois méthodes : Bénéfices caractéristiques, Actualisation des flux de trésorerie libres et la méthode des multiples. Notre choix s’est de suite porté vers l’Actualisation des flux de trésorerie libres car c’est la seule façon d’incorporer dans le calcul de l’évaluation la croissance phénoménale future.

The Ceo Institute Case Study

...Campbell Soup Company has designed a training program for a cross section of their employees. The overall goal is to have leadership experience in which employees can take with them and apply in their everyday lives. The program currently includes all three phases of the training design process: pre-training, learning event, and post training. “Pre-Training prepares, motivates and energizes trainees to attend learning events (Noe).” It also ensures that the transfer of training is not impeded by obstacles such as lack of support from managers, peers, or work environment. Campbell soup leadership has both built motivation and reduced obstacles by having each participant write a letter to the CEO that shares their level of commitment to the training, and explains what their individual goal is in the training. By writing the letter the trainees become vested in the transfer of training and are less to be skewed by outside influences. “Learning event prepare the instruction, and physical environment to facilitate learning and transfer of training (Noe).” This phase in the design process will focus on not only the materials that will be covered but also the environment in which it will encourage learning and transfer of training. Part of the environment includes choosing the best trainer; Campbell Soup Company has chosen executive leadership to share their leadership styles with the employees. This choice is important because it makes the training relevant as......
