Erle Dardick believes the multi-unit restaurant industry is leaving billions of dollars on the table. So he outlined a clear solution for food businesses struggling to stay afloat or to grow during the recession in his new book, Get Catering and Grow Sales! A Strategic Perspective for the Multi-Unit Restaurant Executive. "I believe the fastest-growing source of revenue for restaurants will be catering," asserts Dardick, a serial entrepreneur, "and I have no doubt it will be their most important revenue source during the next decade." Dardick, the CEO of MonkeyMedia Software, a food industry consulting and software company, has helped his firm's clients grow their revenue by embracing a catering strategy. Catering, which can be supplied to corporations, organizations or private individuals, can include off-premise drop-off catering with or without set-up services, or off-premise catering for pick-up. One's catering strategy may even include altering menu selection, portion sizes, and the creation of a proprietary beverage. Many pitfalls and opportunities await those brands ready to incorporate a catering strategy. "This is a book about driving new and incremental sales for our community's brands," writes Dardick. "It's about getting out a roadmap for the future of how our industry can come together as a group and use Get Catering and Grow Sales! as a compass for innovating as a community. It's about leveraging our assets to maximize catering as a substantial revenue channel in the multi-unit restaurant environment." All net proceeds of the audiobook's sale are being donated to Share Our Strength, a charity dedicated to ending childhood hunger in America. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Carl Willis.

Over the past seven years, in a highly unstable global economy, Cisco doubled revenue, tripled profits, and quadrupled earnings per share. How? By Doing Both.When companies face key strategic decisions, they often take one path and abandon the other. They focus on innovation and new business at the expense of core businesses, or vice versa. They stress discipline and sacrifice flexibility. They focus on customers and ignore partners. And they struggle. Cisco believes there is a better way: Doing Both, which means approaching every decision as an opportunity to seize, not a sacrifice to endure. It means avoiding false choices, reduced expectations, and weak compromises. It means finding ways to make each option benefit and mutually reinforce the other. In this book, Cisco Senior Vice President Inder Sidhu explains why doing both is today's best strategy. Then, drawing on Cisco's hard-won insights and the experiences of companies like Procter & Gamble, Whirlpool, and Harley-Davidson, Inder presents a complete blueprint for doing both in your organization, too. Win by Doing Both! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adam Verner. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/002368/bk_adbl_002368_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Globalization era has imposed a way more uncertain and complex market environment for organizations to compete on. Change has been, is, and will be occurring, since this is the only way organizations can remain competitive and/or battle for a higher market share, maximum resource utilization, and improved capacity to generate revenue. Simultaneously, Resistance To Change (RTC) will follow the change as its shadow. This study undertook and integrated before and after the Merger and/or Acquisition (M&A, which is considered radical change): 1) financial evaluation face-to-face interviews, 2) financial analysis, and 3) RTC survey, of two Kosovar organizations in order to establish financial performance RTC link.

WOW and SkyTeam Cargo: An In-depth Analysis of ...

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
