Master's Thesis from the year 2006 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, grade: 1.3, Hamburg University of Technology, language: English, abstract: The increasing importance of offshoring as a strategic tool for firms which possess substantial resources in high-cost locations is reflected in the increasing quantity and value of work being offshored. The offshoring of Automotive Product Development Processes (generically called Automotive Engineering Services) serves not only to reduce developmental costs for firms, but can also help firms develop resources in fast-growing markets, which can also act as an important source of future revenue. The trend of offshoring Automotive Engineering Services (ES) activities to India is becoming increasingly important. Of the $15 billion offshore ES market (including automotive and other ES activities), India claimed 12% in 2005 . Experts claim that this value will increase to $40 billion by 2020, representing a market share of 25%. The increasing importance of ES offshoring is reflected in increasing investments and acquisitions of Indian firms in this business area. The dynamic situation being faced by firms wishing to offshore ES work to India necessitates a decision support methodology, which was outlined in this work. Introduction to Present Work The present project aimed to provide offshoring decision support to automotive product development firms located in Germany/W. Europe by answering the following two questions: 1. Which process steps in the automotive product development process are best offshored? Which process steps should be retained in-house, onshore? 2. In case of offshore partnerships, which criteria may be used to evaluate prospective offshore partners? Offshoreability The offshoreability of an organizational process may be defined as the ease with which it may be offshored to another location, without losing any of its v

A comprehensive new framework for winning at Mfrom up-front planning to postmerger integration The challenges of mergers and acquisitions can be daunting-but the opportunities and benefits they offer forward-thinking companies can be tremendous. Winning at Mergers and Acquisitions offers a critical new approach to strategic M&A based on the authors pioneering concept of marketing due diligenceSM. Covering every stage of market-driven M&A planning and integration, this book shows how to look beyond the quick hit to focus on long-term growth rather than short-term cost-cutting. Featuring dozens of real-life case studies-including both failures and extraordinary successes-plus inside comments from leading M&A specialists, this book contains crucial guidance on: Predeal planning-how to identify your strategic needs and pinpoint the merger candidate(s) that will help you meet them Sizing up targets for acquisition-how to examine the essential marketing, sales, and product issues that will determine a good company 'fit,'.strategically and culturally Revenue enhancement planning-how to identify ways to drive top-line growth and develop action plans to generate near- and long-term revenues Filling the pipeline-how to prioritize and actualize the critical steps necessary to drive shareholder value Developing communication programs-how to design and execute communication strategies to garner support for the merger by employees, customers, and other stakeholders Building a comprehensive postmerger integration plan-how to align diverse corporate cultures, develop training and reward programs, and move beyond the turf wars and lack of productivity that hamper the success of mergers and acquisitions. Last year more than 7,000 mergers and acquisitions were completed, with a collective price tag estimated at more than $800 billion. And although they are known as highly effective means of achieving corporate growth and strategic advantage, these transactions are fraught with pitfalls: Statistics indicate that a third of these deals will fail and another third will not bear out the expectations of the merger partners. What can businesses looking to undertake strategic mergers and acquisitions do to ensure that they do not fall victim to confusion, multimillion-dollar losses, declining market share and profits, or any number of other negative results of failed transactions? The answers are in Winning at Mergers and Acquisitions, a pioneering step-by-step guide to growth-driven planning and swift, effective post-merger integration. Challenging the conventional emphasis on cost-reduction synergies, this book presents the authors groundbreaking blueprint for mergers that yield strategic synergies and high returns in meeting long-term growth, increased market share, and revenue generation objectives. Mark Clemente and David Greenspan explore in detail the marketing, sales, and organizational issues that are vital aspects of successful M&A ventures. They take executives through the entire strategic M&A process-from setting objectives, to evaluating target companies, to aligning corporate cultures in an effort to ensure problem-free integration. They show how to maintain a sharp focus on the markets that will be reached by the merger-and they offer invaluable advice on charting a steady course through the often tumultuous period of integration, when organizational chaos can cause the merged company to lose momentum, market share, and the backing of customers, prospects, and shareholders. Winning at Mergers and Acquisitions is essential reading for CEOs, managers, deal makers, and others looking to capitalize on one of the most important methods of effecting corporate growth in business today-while staying focused on the people, product, and process issues that power that growth.

Digital Agility
19,90 CHF *

The world is moving into the deep, deep digital new normal with wide, wide digital connectivity and tall, tall digital pillars. Agility is one of such powerful pillars to leap digital transformation and enable the business to unleash its full potential. Organizational agility is about to create and react to changes. It is about to take into account any change in the environment and transform the organization to survive, grow, and transform. It is about to respond to emergent events proactively. The purpose of the book 'Digital Agility' is to: Share the insight about agile philosophy and mindsets Clarify a set of agile principles and disciplines Develop the best and next agile practices to scale up Describe potential agile pitfalls and how to prevent them Connect the agile dots to build a creative working environment Measure the right things about agile and measure them right Sum up agile maturity from multidimensional perspectives Inspire healthy debates to move agile up to the next level of maturity The term 'Agile' is derived from 'The Manifesto for Agile Software Development' which describes a collaborative way of working based on a set of twelve principles that has come to mean early delivery of business value. The problem is people do not have a profound understanding of Agile principles and philosophy behind a set of Agile framework or tools. Most of the times they use the word 'agile' when in fact they are talking about agile software development. The best way to fail is thinking that you will implement agile inside a business unit without taking into account the whole enterprise. Agile needs to be the philosophy to perceive multidimensional business values. Make the effort at the leadership and portfolio level to qualify and quantify value in terms of both strategic value and tactical value; direct revenue and indirect (vision/values/culture) terms is the first step to crafting high-level strategic intents. When faced with two or more alternatives that deliver roughly the same value, take the path that makes future change easier. Once benefits of agile are visible and understood, a domino effect takes over, the organization as a whole becomes 'agiler.' From 'doing Agile to being agile' is a rocky road, not a straight path: Agile is direction, not a destination. Transforming to 'Being Agile' means the business knows the direction they want to go on, and as people start 'putting on' the agile mindset, discover new ways of working, collaborating, delivering value, they inspect and adapt in that journey by overcoming the frictions and challenges. You have to keep things rolling, to make agile not just a methodology to manage projects, but a principle instilled into a healthy culture to run the business more effectively. To move from Waterfall to Agile is not an act of one day. It is a journey. And as long as the journey is coming to a place where we can call the organization actually Agile, Waterfall and Agile do co-exist. Some organizations stop moving and remain in the hybrid state and some just turn back to go on the previous state of the waterfall and few actually reach the destination of the Agile world. So, hybrid organizations are the reality. Agile is neither just a methodology nor a set of practices, Agile is a state of mind. It's the basic underlying principles of Agile! You can not expect big bang mindset change so you need to start with agile philosophy and some initial practices that pay off and reinforce, a mindset change is more difficult of a change and involves coaching, training, teaching and important discussions around what Agile is to the team, department, and company. Agile is first about doing right things before doing things right: Agile is about people and not tools and processes. Tools and processes are definitely going to be add on, in being agile, but they ar
