This book analyses strategic interactions in the upstream activities of the petroleum industry, using game theoretic technique. The author provides insight into the peculiar nature of competitive behaviour of the oil majors and the revenue destruction effect that ensues from interdependencies between these firms for market share. These arguments are augmented by reference to an illustrative case study demonstrating prisoner's dilemma with reference to exploration efforts, and offers an explanation for the wave of mergers between 1998 to 2005. The role of process technologies such as Seismology, in the industry dynamics referenced and highlighted. The content is suitable for students enrolled in executive management courses in business schools since it provides an excellent real life example of corporate strategies, as well as oil executives and managers. Oil and gas engineers who have an interest in understanding industry dynamics, government "watch dogs", whose responsibility it is to understand industry wide consolidations are likely to find this book valuable.

In the airline industry, the formation of highly integrated strategic alliances started during the 1990’s. Thereby, Star Alliance became the first global player when passenger airlines faced deregulation, and wanted to support their growth and expansion in international markets. For cargo companies, this type of integration came around later, namely in the beginning of 2000. As a result of the increased co-operation, major alliances were formed with the launch of SkyTeam Cargo and WOW. In the dawn of the new century, these alliances should lay the cornerstone for the achievement of a long term success through synergy effects, and higher competitiveness in terms of the individual and the group. A decade later, WOW and SkyTeam Cargo have evolved in different directions but, not all members or ex-members are pleased about the results. Strategic alliances in air transport have been studied widely but, most of the recent publications only cover the passenger side in this business. There are a lot of information and statements about the benefits that alliances can bring to its members. But, the review of the literature shows that research is very sparse when it comes down to the evaluation of the actual impact of alliance integration on air cargo carriers’ standing. The objective of this book is to analyze and interpret the impact of a strategic alliance on cargo airlines’ revenue-tonne-kilometres key figures (provided by Airline Business 1998-2010), and market share developments. The author’s aim is on the one hand, to answer the question if air cargo operators did profit from alliance integration, and on the other hand, to give the reasons for this development. Besides, the book gives an overview about the market’s environment, the characteristics of air freight, and the history of WOW and SkyTeam Cargo. Further, the additional questions are discussed in detail: • How did carriers react to the challenges and opportunities in the market? • What are the main benefits or disadvantages for alliance members?• What major challenges do (prospective) members face in an alliance?• What are the core arrangements and prerequisites for alliance integration?• Is there a common success, are there stability factors and why do alliances fail?• What alternatives are there to alliance formation

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Company formation, Business Plans, grade: 1, Anglia Ruskin University, course: Business Analysis, language: English, abstract: Google Inc. (Google), founded in 1981 by Larry Page and Sergey Brin, two Stanford students, has shortly turned into a global technology leader, overruling its global competitors in providing search engines: Yahoo, Baidu and Microsoft (Business Insights, p. 32, 2010). Above, Google has scarcely been rated as most valuable brand worldwide (Berger, 2010). Financial data are fairytale-like: from $ 85 (IPO, 2004), share price rose by 800 percent up to $ 642; margins of 36,8 percent, annual revenues of $ 29,32 bn and an EBIT of $ 10,8 bn strengthen the picture of high profitability and economic well-being (Google Inc., p. 27, 2010; Osiris, 2011). Delivering online advertising which is significantly adjusted to the customer primarily generates revenue for Google: together with licenses for its search engine technology, GoogleAdWords, an auction-based advertising program, and GoogleAdSense, distributing ads in the Google Network, are main sources of income (Stross, 2008). Today, Google holds market share in global search advertising of 74,3 percent (Business Insights, p. 12, 2010); longing for even more awareness, content such as YouTube, GoogleEarth, GoogleEnterprise or GoogleMaps is only a precise of what Google additionally offers - all services being positioned online (Google Inc., p. 4f., 2009). Downside of the global success story is that Google keeps walking on the edge of ethics and legality, as detractors arraign (Hintermeier, 2011). Further, the company is already under the weather of internal alterations and legal denunciations (Fleischmann, 2011). Though analysts foresee further growth in 2011/2012 (Moran, p. 20, 2011), increasing rivalry as well as internal and societal debates might harm the company in the author's opinion. Along with an external and internal review focusing on the online advertising market, benchmarking two main competitors will provide a detailed view upon Google in order to identify threats and benefits particularized. The aim of this paper will be to analyze and evaluate Google's strategy in terms of quantitative and qualitative data, providing an elaborated basis for recommendations on how to defend market leadership, observe strategic goals, and cope with obstacles. Relevant recommendations will be modeled in a spreadsheet to prove financial outcomes.

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

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, grade: 1,0, Vienna University of Economics and Business , course: Transportwirtschaft und Logistik, language: English, abstract: The formation of highly integrated strategic alliances in the airline industry started during the1990's with Star Alliance as the first global player, as passenger airlines faced deregulation and wanted to support their growth and expansion in international markets. For cargo companies, this type of integration came around later at the beginning of 2000. As a result of this increased co-operation, major alliances were formed with the launch of SkyTeam Cargo and WOW. Beginning at the dawn of the new century, these alliances should mark a cornerstone that enables long term success and survival through synergy effects and higher competitiveness individually and as a group. Now, a decade later, WOW and SkyTeam Cargo have evolved, but in different directions and not all members or ex-members are content with the results. Strategic alliances in air transport have been studied widely in recent publications, most of which just cover the passenger side of the business. There is a lot of information, statements and common knowledge about what benefits alliances can bring to its members, but a literature review leads to the fact that research is very sparse when it comes down to evaluating the actual impact of alliance integration on air cargo carriers' standing. Strategic Alliances (WOW, SkyTeam Cargo) in Air Cargo Operations: It is the purpose of this bachelor thesis to analyze and interpret the impact of a strategic alliance on cargo airlines' Revenue-Ton-Kilometers key figures (provided by Airline Business 1998-2010) and market share developments. The goal is to provide answers to the questions if air cargo operators did profit from alliance integration and why that was the case or not? Can al

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 2.0, University of applied sciences, Munich, course: Corporate Strategic Management, language: English, abstract: Canon's strategies have been very effective in balancing growth of market share and profitability of the company by controlling a significant share of focused niche markets in the imaging industry. Canon's strategic challenges in-volved identifying the markets in which it intended to compete and developing competitive advantages to allow the firm to balance market share and profitabil-ity growth within these markets. In the late 1960s, Canon initially adopted a business-level strategic vision of focusing on the small photocopier niche that was underserved by its major competitors using a technology that was totally different than the existing tech-nologies used by the competition. The strategic vision provided direction for Canon's strategic planning process. At the same time, the corporate planning process was flexible enough to allow Canon to recognize and exploit opportuni-ties in related markets over the long run and to adopt the corporate strategy by diversification based on the evolution of its core competencies. Over the long run, the development and application of Canon's strategy was successful and has made the company a leader in the imaging industry group. The assignment provides current data about Canon's business units with re-spect to sales revenue and market shares for the core products. Further, a SWOT analysis is done for the company and together with a industry attractiveness and competitive strengths rating of each business unit a nine-cell matrix developed. The work concludes with some general recommendations for the future strategy of Canon Inc. and some particular ones for each business unit. Finally, some general management aspects are provided by the ITM checklist.
