...capita, sometimes used as an indicator of international competitiveness at the country level, was 33 per cent lower in the EU as a whole than in the USA and 13 per cent lower than in Japan. The EU’s poor record in creating employment was singled out for particular criticism. As this appeared to apply across the board in most industrial sectors, it suggested that the EU’s poor performance related to the business environment in general and, in particular, to the inflexibility of Europe’s labour markets for goods and services. A shortage of risk capital for advanced technological development and high cost and inefficiency of Europe’s financial services were also highlighted by the report. For one reason or another, European industries generally lag behind in technology industries. If measured by the number of inventions patented in at least two countries, the USA is well ahead of most European countries, as well as Japan. Despite these shortcomings, the report’s authors focus attention on flexible markets, market liberalisation, and the creation of a competitive business environment rather than on targeted intervention by the EU or national authorities Questions: 1. Is gross domestic product per capita a useful indicator of International competitiveness in the EU? 2. Is it fair to point the blame for the EU’s poor international competitiveness at inflexible labour markets, regulated goods and services markets, and a general lack of competition? What alternative......

Companies implement ERP systems to integrate the business processes of a company, and help organizations obtain a competitive advantage.

We also examined the relationship between degree of BPR and ERP system performance using regression analysis.

...just begun to mine Marvel’s rich roster of characters and stories, and leverage them across our businesses to create all-important franchises. We’ve made significant long-term investments in our parks and resorts, enhancing and expanding guests’ experiences. In 2012, several of those investments in new lands and attractions are opening, including Disney California Adventure’s Cars Land where guests will journey to the 12-acre Radiator Springs. Like World of Color, which opened in 2010, we believe Cars Land will be a huge draw. This spring, we will also launch the Disney Fantasy, the sister ship to the Disney Dream, which has been extremely popular since making its maiden voyage a year ago. The Disney Fantasy is an exciting addition to our fleet, which has set a new standard in the cruise industry providing outstanding high-quality service and memorable experiences. We are pleased with the successful opening of our redesigned Disney Stores, which have been transformed into an immersive, interactive experience with our cherished characters, classic stories and unmatched brands at new and renovated locations worldwide. We are also becoming an integral part of new parents’ lives providing important information, entertainment, and nursery necessities through the launch of disneybaby.com as well as through our recent acquisition of the premiere parent blogging site, Babble, and the 2012 opening of a pilot Disney Baby retail store.

Evaluation of Fleet Management

...To: | D. Scott Sheldon, Chief Financial Officer, Allegiant Air | From: | Kristen Harris, Senior Financial Analyst, SH&E | Date: | September 5, 2014 | Re: | Evaluation of Fleet Expansion – A-320 vs. MD-80 | | | SH&E conducted an intense, detailed and comprehensive analysis, that included thorough research and exploration into Allegiant Air’s fleet expansion needs. To complete this analysis we compared existing and current market statistics, which pertains specifically to the fleet expansion needs. It is the recommendation of SH&E, that Allegiant Air purchase the McDonnell Douglas MD-80’s at a price of $4,000,000. It is the belief of SH&E, that the purchase of the McDonnell Douglas MD-80’s, is a prudent and sensible decision, versus a price of $62,600,000 for the Airbus A-320. SH&E thorough research showed that given the net present value, also known as NPV, the expenses for the McDonnell Douglas MD-80 is estimated at $44,200,000, in comparison to the Airbus A-320’s NPV of $93,600,000. If Allegiant Air were to purchase the McDonnell Douglas MD-80, over the fifteen year lifespan, this would allow Allegiant Air to save approximately $50,000,000 in operating costs. There is a summary below of the analysis and research that includes the methodology and assumptions that were used to conduct and thus support SH&E’s recommendation. The McDonnell Douglas MD-80 has a different seating capacity than the Airbus A-320.To compare these aircraft, a Cost......

...globally. For instance, it can do exactly the same business with the same strategy once again. But this time, Southwest has to do it in every part of the world. For instance, Southwest can expand its business in France, Germany, Australia, Russia, China, Japan, Poland, Greece, etc. All Southwest has to do is doing “Short-Haul” business in all the countries. Once the “Short-Haul” strategy has spread to almost all the nations with economic prosperity, Southwest can start its “Long-Haul” strategy. Its global network will be linked like the solid structure of an atom, from Russia to Germany, Germany to France, France to Australia, Australia to China, and China to Switzerland, etc. By doing this, Southwest will have an extremely solid structure of global airline network that is likely to be very durable. The structure is similar to that of an atom. The structure of an atom can be described as one of the most solid structure among all other solid elements. This strategy adopted from “The Art of War” is based on the theory of strategic transformation, especially from a micro-perspective to a macro-perspective (Chapter IV, Art of War). By duplicating its successful strategy of “Short-Haul”, Southwest will have the capabilities of accumulating more strengths little by little. When Southwest considers it the right time to transform the “Short-Hauls” strategy to “Long-Hauls”, it can connect its business in every corner of the world. Each business in a certain place can be regard as a......

...and Ronald MacAlpine. They provided maintenance services for bus services and the company considerably grew over the years. By 1997, this company had grown to be the largest in the Australian market for automobile parts mostly brakes and steering parts. Consequently, they became a preference for General Motors Holden and Mitsubishi. Toyota came on board later on in 2003. MetalEx started off as a family business but as time went by some of its shares belonged to bank and insurance companies. They counted up to 7% of decisions. The companies had faced a lot of problems by 1995. However, the company had a turnaround in 1996. A new plan for the business was made. This plan was meant to put MetalEx back on its feet. By 2000 the business had transformed with the purchase of new assets and businesses. The purpose of the acquisition of the new businesses was to establish a pacific rim beachhead for the German parent company, Greothe Industries. At that same time, the rationalized business would bring forth cash flow, infrastructure and economies of scale for the expansion of the business into the rapidly growing markets of China, Indonesia, The Phillipines, and later on India. However, in 2014, this company faced a worse situation than it was in earlier. Dollar fluctuations and increase in costs led to lose of a large client base. There was also a increase in costs of production due to the rise in labour costs in Austarlia. This greatly hurt companies in Australia. Pestel analysis......
