Dyson AM01 is a new generation in fan industry. Its difference from normal fans is that it does not have any blade. Due to the new technology called Air Multiplier, this bladeless table fan generates smooth and uninterrupted airflow. It has many benefits that attract customers’ attention. For instance, since the structure of Dyson table fan is simply consisted of a circle which is used to generate airflow and an elliptical base which has switches. Therefore, it is very easy to clean because people do not need to take it apart as traditional ones before clean it. Also, because there are no blades, people will not hurt themselves when their hands are in the fan by accident. This is essentially important as many children hurt themselves by being cut by fan blades. Furthermore, the shape and looking of Dyson table fan are also reasons why people like it. It looks modern and high tech, and most importantly, it breaks the traditional idea of fans in people’s mind. The positioning of Dyson table fan is clear and specific. Firstly, they target on people who like modern style and working in office. The fan is small but efficient and also easy to clean for busy people. Then, housewives and families with children are their second target. Dyson focuses on safety and easy to clean while they are promoting their product to this group of people. The perceptions of consumers Dyson’s product are mainly vision and touch. As I mentioned above, on one hand, some people like it because of its modern looking color and appearance. On the other hand, some consumers like the airflow that it makes and feel comfortable. The motivation that drives people to consume Dyson table fan is their new idea of fan. People nowadays are more willing to try new things than they are in the past; therefore, it is not a problem for Dyson to consider if their new product will be accepted or not. In most…...

Fans in the Stands

...Mylon Richard Mr. Joubert English 101G1 16 October 2012 Fans in the Stands Professional sports have become one of the most popular industries in the world today. The media spends billions of dollars on advertisements with billboards, commercial, and merchandise. Teams spend millions of dollars on professional athletes all for one reason, the fans because if the fans are happy then the owners are happy. The fans ticket sales and merchandise purchases are what keeps all the sport teams around and prevents professional athletes from losing their jobs. Fans are the most crucial part of any franchise. There are three types of fans in the sports world, average fans, fanatics, and fair-weather fans. A diehard’s favorite team is basically their second religion. The diehard fan would be the one who knows the team like the back of their hand. They are the persons that know the name, number, position, and maybe the height and weight of every play on the field for their team. They could win an argument against the world’s greatest lawyer, being that the argument is about their team. They will wear their team’s colors with great pride whether the team is winning or losing. They are so dedicated to their team to point of sitting through a hurricane, blizzard, or the blazing heat just because of their love for the team. Diehards are the one fan that bought their season ticket passes for the next season five years in advance to make sure they get seats with the best view. They make......

Doing a Dyson

...When Dyson entered, the vacuum cleaner market was a very mature market with recognised appliance giants selling their branded vacuum cleaners comfortably without much differentiation or innovation in terms of technology. I think this played into Dyson’s hands allowing the Dual Cyclone’s disruptive, innovative & design and technology capture the harts & minds of the customer. These market conditions where a factor in the success of the Dual Cyclone. The market proved to have an appetite for something new and different. The fact that the Dyson had over 100 patents helped ensure that the large appliance giants could not quickly come to market with exactly the same technology at a lower cost. This was also a factor in securing and maintaining differentiating the Dual Cyclone and its success. The early success of the Dual Cyclone was written off as “just a fad” by competitors allowing Dyson to continue to take more and more market share. Iterating and extending the range with different versions that appealed to different users like Dyson Absolute, The De Stijl and the Antartica also helped the success of the Dual Cyclone technology capture a larger market share. Education of both the retail staff through the use of demo models and discounted pricing and of the public through television advertising also played a key role in the success of the brand.

Dyson

...Dyson vacuum cleaners have some very steep competition and which vacuum cleaner has the best overall quality and price. Dyson James and his engineers develop inventions, but also improve existing Dyson technology. Conventional electric motors haven’t changed much in 100 years. They still have the characteristics of being bulky and fragile and the brushes wear down and emit carbon dust. The Dyson digital motor works differently. Controlled by microchip it spins at 88,000 rpm – five-times faster than a Formula 1 car engine. Because of its speed, the digital motor is half the size and half the weight of conventional motors. With no brushes or fixed magnets, it doesn’t emit carbon either. Only a Dyson vacuum delivers all five DC 14 advanced Dyson cyclone technology with a wand and hose instantly extend 17ft for high-reach and stair cleaning, while the vacuum remains upright and stable. Just press the remote button at the top of the cyclone and the dust empties from the bottom and Brush bar turns off at the touch of a button to protect delicate rugs and bare floors. The vacuum cleaner has a lifetime HEPA which traps microscopic allergens such as pollen. Certified asthma and allergy friendly unlike ordinary vacuums, Dyson is certified asthma & allergy friendly™ according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. This cleaner also has other features such as on-board tool storage, auto-adjusting height, ergonomic carry handle, and large debris......

Abstract In 1978, James Dyson noticed that the air filter of the workshop where the spraying finishing operations on Ballbarrow models was constantly obstructed powder particles (like a vacuum cleaner bag is blocked by dust). He has designed and manufactured industrial cyclone tower, which removed the powder particles by exerting a centrifugal force 100 000 times the force of gravity. The same principle could he operate in a vacuum? James Dyson began to work. Five years and 5,127 prototypes later, the first Dual Cyclone bagless Vacuum cleaner was created. Then a legend of Dyson was come into being. He......

Raving Fans

...Mason Head 3-10-14 Management 402 Midterm Examination Raving Fans suggest that satisfied customers just aren’t good enough anymore, and a company should strive to have “Raving Fans”. Throughout this book there is many obvious ways to connect the subject of the book and lessons that have been taught about the topics we have covered thus far in the semester. I would like to look into specific organization examples that we have discussed in class and talk about them in relation to this book. After reading Raving Fans, I discovered that the book has three main lessons. The first is “Decide What You Want”. The second is “Discover What the Customers Wants”. Last is “Deliver the Vision Plus One Percent”. What are the values of the company? Whether it is your own company or the company you work for this is something that is not looked into enough when first starting out or when applying for a position. The values of the company set the culture and tone for how the organization is going to function and complete everyday aspects within the business. The values of the company not only affect the culture and tone, but they also reflect the people of the company all the way from the top to the bottom. In class we specifically talked about Caterpillar. Caterpillar is a worldwide business mainly known and recognized for the heavy machinery that they produce. When looking into Caterpillar in class we said they had two main ideas. The first is to ensure that customers......

Inside Dyson: a Distinctive Company

...------------------------------------------------- Dyson Case Study Essay Introduction In “Inside Dyson: a distinctive company?”, Shepherd et al. (2011) gives details of the secret of Dyson’s success – the company specializing in innovative, design-heavy vacuum cleaners and other household appliances. The successes and failures of Dyson’s design efforts (from their successful vacuums to the 3-in-1 vacuums that did not test well with customers) are explored, as well as their unique perspective on business, which puts quality and innovation above anything else. 1. Using frameworks from the chapter, analyze the strategic capabilities of Dyson. The strategic capabilities of Dyson revolve primarily around a resource-based view of the strategy with a heavy focus on engineering design; they spend a tremendous amount of time developing and engineering prototypes for household products that seek to provide a twist to the typical device (e.g., vacuum cleaners that provide smooth turning around the corners, oscillating fans that “multiply” air, etc.) This creates a niche in what can be an overly-saturated market. Providing a unique spin of this sort on a product can offer tremendous advantages. Combine this with state-of-the-art, sleek design elements and bright, colorful exteriors, and Dyson creates a number of high-end, well-sought-after appliances. Dyson invests heavily in Chinese and Asian manufacturing in order to make their products cheaper, so that they can maintain profit......

The company was founded by James Dyson, who is a furniture and interior designer and his product was launched in 1966, when he was student. In 1985 James Dyson had contracted with a small company in Japan. Than in 1993 Dyson opened a research center and factory in Malmesbury by using the money from the Japanese company and developed dual cyclone vacuum cleaner, which became the fastest selling vacuum cleaner in UK. Fourteen years later Dyson could present its first product in the shop and it also presented in the Science Museum. Dyson started to develop Root 8 Cyclone, which removes more dust by using more cyclones. In 2000 he launched new innovative washing machine and in 2008 the company’s revenue reached around 700 million pound, and much of this came from vacuum cleaners sales, about two third, in outside of local market mainly from US, Australia and Japan.

Fans

...Types of Fans A fan is a person who is fond of a certain thing, person, food, sports or any such things. N my opinion a fan is divided in three categories: - part time fans, die hard fans and optimistic fan. Let me explain this concept using a soccer match. A part time fan is one who does not have any particular team as his favorite, but he just enjoys watching the game as he is more overwhelmed by the sport than the players. Part time fans could also be people who follow a sport they like based on their availability. In the sense they follow a team or a sport based on their availability and convenience and don’t necessarily go to the stadium to watch their team play. Also, they might watch soccer if there’s nothing else that is interesting being played on television. Die-hard fans are like patriots and they patronize associating with a team. They believe their loyalties lie in speaking only good about a team and they would go against any person who badmouths a team they support. These die hard fans wear the sports jerseys of their favorite teams, make time to watch their favorite match at any cost, even if it means watching the match at late night and odd hours. A die-hard fan feels like the world is over when he sees his team loosing or not performing well. A die-hard fan is aggressive about the reputation of his team and can go to great lengths to support and defend the team he likes gravely. An optimistic fan is one who always speaks well about his team, even the......

Adopting a differentiation strategy since its inception, the company aims to take its brand to the next level and to expand into new grounds. This comes in a critical time after a declining market share in its high end vacuum cleaners segment, and withdrawing its innovative and very expensive washing machine from markets. The paper attempts to select the most potential global markets for Dyson to put more marketing investments. The paper suggests those markets to be mostly Scandinavian. The paper also aims to shed the light on the mass distribution strategy adopted in the US market by Dyson. Finally the paper studies the opportunity for Dyson to repeat the huge success of its vacuum cleaner to enter new product category of washing machines.

...M17_HOLL6227_05_SE_C17.qxd 5/20/10 4:06 PM Page 641 CASE STUDY IV.3 Dyson Vacuum Cleaner: shifting from domestic to international marketing with the famous bagless vacuum cleaner The Dyson history It is impossible to separate the very British Dyson vacuum cleaner from its very British inventor. Together they are synonymous with innovation and legal battles against established rivals. James Dyson was born in Norfolk in 1947. He studied furniture design and interior design at the Royal College of Art from 1966 to 1970 and his first product, the Sea Truck, was launched while he was still Courtesy of Dyson. studying. Dyson’s foray into developing vacuum cleaner technology happened by chance. In 1978, while renovating his 300-year-old country house, Dyson became frustrated with the poor performance of his conventional vacuum cleaner. Whenever he went to use it, there was poor suction. One day he thought he would find out what was wrong with the design. He noted that the appliance worked by drawing air through the bag to create suction, but when even a fine layer of dust got inside, it clogged its pores, stopping the airflow and suction. In his usual style of seeking solutions from unexpected sources, Dyson noticed how a nearby sawmill used a cyclone – a 30-foot-high cone that spun dust out of the air by centrifugal force – to expel waste. He reasoned that a vacuum cleaner that could separate dust by cyclonic action and spin it out of......
