Grupo Bimbo
Introduction
In early 2007 Daniel Servitje, CEO of Mexico-based Crupo Bimbo, sat at his desk eating one of many sweet bread products his company produced and which he had learned to love while working in one of the family owned plants as a boy. He looked out his window toward a growing business district just outside of Mexico City, and wondered how far he could take his dream of one day leading the premier baking company in the world in terms of both size and quality. He had recently told a group of business students interested in Latin America that"our company might have a funnysounding name in English, but it is an icon brand in Latin America and is starting to become one in the U.s. toO."1 He thought about whether it made sense to become one of the first Latin American consumer product companies in any industry to set up a large production business in China and try to dominate the emerging Chinese consumer market for industrial-made breads and sweet goods.
He also thought about his company's decade-long attempt to become both large and highly profitable in the U.S. market. The U.s. business, through a series of operational improvements, had only recently become profitable. He wondered what further strategic changes were needed to become highly profitable in the world's largest bread market. How to make these two global strategy initiatives succeed in the U.S. and China were the focus as he sought to implement his company's
Vision 2010-to make Crupo Bimbo the world leader in the baking…...

...Grupo Bimbo: Executive Brief Changes to Global Strategy Grupo Bimbo should overcome the cultural and administrative distances and better respond to its consumers needs around the world. The management should develop, produce and deliver the products that meet the consumers’ current needs and preferences for every type of consumption occasion. This can be reached by constant innovation and a commitment to quality as the company broadens its reach around the world. In order to maintain its leading position in this highly fragmented and competative industry and successfully expand into new territories, Grupo Bimbo needs to have a strong presence in Brazil, overcome its administrative and cultural challenges in the US, and gain a strong position in China. Changes to the US Market In the US, the baking industry has been hurt by the advent of the low-carb movement which decreased the consumer demand for bread products. (Per capita bread consumption in the US decreased by 2 Kg between 1998 and 2006). The company is also under pressure from strong retail stores and supermarkets to keep prices low while the wages keep increasing due to unionization of its workers and truckers. To overcome the administrative and cultural distance in the US, Grupo Bimbo should produce healthier choices and earn a price premium by improving quality. Since it is difficult to bust the union, the company should create an incentive program to get drivers and employees to improve their......

Liderazgo Equipo vs Grupo

...Preguntas: 1.- ¿En que radica la diferencia de un grupo y un equipo? Señale tres (3) diferencias. Entre las principales diferencias podemos destacar: * El trabajo en Equipo funciona como un solo conjunto, cuenta con una cohesión integrada y con estrecha colaboración activa de sus miembros, en base a las metas y objetivos propuestos. Mientras que en el grupo, cada uno de sus integrantes responde individualmente por el trabajo realizado, siendo la cohesión, un tema no prioritario la mayoría de las veces. * En el trabajo en Equipo, los niveles Jerárquicos no existen, siempre hay un jefe o líder, el cual cuenta con una serie de individuos, los cuales aportan con sus conocimientos, de acuerdo a las diferentes especialidades con las que cuenta cada uno, en determinadas materias. Cada uno de sus miembros realiza una tarea específica para lograr la meta esperada, explotando al máximo el talento existente. Mientras que en el grupo, los individuos que lo conforman, generalmente tienen una formación similar en cuanto a conocimientos y a su vez realizan trabajos homogéneos. * Otra diferencia a destacar en el trabajo en Equipo, es la coordinación en cuanto a las tareas que desempeñan los individuos, ya que se caracterizan por estándares de calidad basados en la eficiencia, en la rapidez de respuesta y toma de decisiones; en tanto, en el trabajo grupal, este tema no es fundamental, ya que cada individuo puede contar con una manera particular o diferente de......

Grupo Prisa

...Grupo Prisa (PRIS.B) is a diversified media conglomerate with an excellent collection of assets but a weak balance sheet and the misfortune of doing most of its business in a troubled part of the world. Spain, which accounts for 61% of Prisa’s revenues, is going through a crisis that is even more severe than the one the U.S. went through in late 2008, so as the news has gotten worse and worse, Prisa’s stock has gotten clobbered. The B shares, which comprise the bulk of our position, closed last Friday at $2.65, down 45% year to date and down 75% in the past 12 months. The stock rose sharply yesterday, however, after the company announced a deal (discussed further below) that will significantly strengthen its balance sheet and demonstrates that the true value of the company is far higher than the current price. When things stabilize in Spain, we think the stock will likely be a multi-bagger from today’s depressed levels. In light of the dire state of the Spanish economy, Prisa’s business is holding up remarkably well thanks to the quality of both its assets and management team: in Q1, revenues and adjusted EBITDA were only down 5.7% and 8.0% year-over-year, respectively (the earnings release is posted here. “Ah,” you might say, “but what about the balance sheet, which is burdened with 3.5 billion euros of net debt? If Spain’s economy deteriorates further, might the company default, wiping out the equity?” We’ve thought about this question a great deal and are confident......

...What changes, if any, should Grupo Bimbo make to its global strategy in order to be more successful internationally? Grupo Bimbo’s global strategy is experiencing growing pains at different international markets but I think it’s natural and makes sense for them to go global given that they already have a huge market share in their domestic market. In order for Grupo Bimbo to be more successful internationally, they need to follow the changing consumer demand patterns and customize their products to match to the different cultural tastes and preferences. The production and distribution processes need to be more flexible and not just simply follow the process that they have in Mexico. As long as they have the continued stream of cash flow coming from the cash cow, Mexico, Grupo Bimbo should continue to implement its global strategy to expand and adjust to the challenges that other markets present. What changes should they make in the US market? Because of the high proportion of unsold inventory in the US supermarkets, as high as 14%, compared to the Mexico supermarkets, margins are being cut. This could be due to the high competition and not enough of a recognizable core brand in the US. This problem could potentially be solved by increasing marketing and branding so that they be distinguish themselves a bit more from their competitors and thus reducing that unsold inventory. Grupo Bimbo should also reduce the number of products that it offers in the US. Some......

Grupo Bimbo Case Study

...! ! ! ! ! ! Regan Nelson! Section 10! G40696771! Grupo Bimbo Case Study ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Regan Nelson! Section 10! G40696771! Grupo Bimbo! The Servitje family was already in the bread business before the founding of Grupo Bimbo. Daniel Servitje’s grandfather Juan invented Mexico’s first machine for mass-producing bolillo breads in 1918. Grupo Bimbo, originally called Panificacion Bimbo, was officially established in 1945 by a group of siblings and close friends. In the company’s beginning, one of the younger members of the family decided to draw a bear by placing a hat and a bread maker’s apron on it and a large bread loaf under his arm. This bear, now known as the Bimbo Bear, immediately became the mascot for the company partly due to its childlike appeal and soft appearance- which were fitting qualities associated with bread. In the first Mexico City plant, Grupo Bimbo was already able to distinguish themselves from their competitors by wrapping their bread and toasted products in cellophane- instead of the usual wax paper. This allowed for customers to clearly see the product’s freshness and quality. Since its conception, the Mexicanbased company has come a long way. By 2007, Grupo Bimbo had become one of the world’s largest bread and sweet-goods makers. In 2007, Daniel Servitje, CEO of Mexico-based Grupo Bimbo, wondered how far he could take his business/dream into making his company a world leader in the baking industry. There......

...10% to 20% in children, 30% to 40% in adolescents and 60% to 70% in adults. One cause of the increase in obesity in children is the change in eating habits, which include a high intake of calories, refined carbohydrates and sodas. While Grupo Bimbo has a set of values ​​that focus on the person and maintains an active agenda of social responsibility among which include caring for the environment and supporting the community, the nature of most products Bimbo are among those that contribute significantly to obesity, especially in children way. This places Bimbo in a difficult situation, because on one hand the Group has a strategy of growth with social responsibility, but the effect on the health of the population through the consumption of their products placed in a contradiction Bimbo The second problem that arises is to continue its growth in new markets such as China. This represents a challenge because although Daiel Servitje's have no doubt that the internationalization of Bimbo is part of its strategic growth, this can not be at the cost of sacrificing the values ​​and principles implemented by their predecessors. How could Bimbo resolve this contradiction without compromising growth of the company? Solution to Case Grupo Bimbo is an ethical conflict of marketing due to an increase in sales can mean an increase in obesity rates, especially in children and adolescents. The challenge is to reduce the externality without ceasing to be a profitable and growing......

Bimbo Transportation

...Bimbo transportations Grupo Bimbo has proven not to be a victim of globalization. When the Free Trade Agreement between the US, Canada and Mexico, which eliminated tariffs and restrictions on trade in goods and services, entered 1994 in force there were those who predicted that Mexico would lose against the economic domination of its powerful northern neighbor. But it has not been that way. At the head of this Mexican expansion it has been at Bimbo. Although internationalization is the norm in the food industry, bakeries have little presence outside its borders. Bimbo is the exception. In 1985 he began exporting bread and pastries to the US to serve the Hispanic market. Following the Free Trade Agreement and, after a series of strategic acquisitions, distributed north of the wheat tortillas, pizza crust, muffins, donuts and muffins border, among other products. In 2006, the group was the first major Latin American company managed to establish itself in the coveted Chinese market. Five years later, it stood in the largest bakery in the world with the purchase of Sara Lee in the United States, Spain and Portugal and Fargo in Argentina. * Bimbo products Bimbo has so many products because they are not in the market only with the name of Bimbo, they are also with some other brand names. The next chart shows the quantity of products of each categories they have including all brand names they own: Categories | Products quantity | Breads | 12 | Bars | 5 | ......

Cemex/Bimbo Business Cases

...with volatile market conditions. GRUPO BIMBO According to the lecture, BIMBO’s strategy to approach the Chinese market seems fairly reasonable. BIMBO is taking advantage of its know-how and is trying to develop patterns used in Latin American and U.S. markets to have a better understanding of the Chinese needs. The acquisition of the Beijing Panrico Food Processing Center had several advantages such as: well-positioned products, strategic geographic location and essential distribution channels that made it enjoy a 38% market share in Beijing. The market research studies that BIMBO is implementing to fully understand the Chinese culture is a key success factor to allocate the right products that the Chinese society wants. It also seems that producing efficiencies and cost reductions that BIMBO is planning to implement on its plant in China are going to produce beneficial outcomes for its expanding business. On the other hand, growth is as important as consolidating operations and reaching new efficiency goals in the U.S, Central American and South American markets. The baking industry seems well fragmented, and the sociocultural patterns are different in every zone. The learning curve is long and steep for baking companies, so I personally think that it is a process that BIMBO is walking rightly. By understanding the culture, society needs and addressing problems that range from its brand name to conflicts with the unionized distributors, BIMBO proves to be world-class......

Economic Grupo Posadas Study

...Estrategias de venta GRUPO POSADAS Grupo Posadas cuenta con una estrategia de crecimiento muy interesante ya que cuenta con 3 estilos diferentes de hoteles (hoteles de playa, hoteles de negocios, y hoteles Gran Turismo), estos logran que las temporadas bajas en un tipo de hoteles sean temporada alta en otro, por ejemplo, durante vacaciones la gente tiene como opción el hotel THE EXPLOREAN KOHUNLICH mientras que para un viaje de negocios un HOLLIDAY INN EXPRESS satisface las necesidades del cliente. Si analizamos esto tomando en cuenta solo un tipo de hoteles debemos de conocer las estrategias de venta; En los hoteles de playa que durante temporadas bajas no reciben tantos huéspedes y tal vez su ocupación no llegue ni al 50%, ellos manejan paquetes de fin de semana o una semana entera para parejas con lo cual reciben visitas a lo largo del año que están celebrando su aniversario o solo quieren ir a descansar un poco, gracias a estas estrategias aumenta su ocupación y permiten atender al cliente con mas trabajadores generándoles una plena satisfacción al regresar a su vida cotidiana. Mientras tanto, los hoteles BUSINESS CLASS aprovechan la temporada baja del turismo vacacional para tener una ocupación entre el 75 y el 80%, cuando entra la temporada alta estos hoteles se ven afectados gracias a la alta demanda de los hoteles de playa, la estrategia que usan estos hoteles es competir directamente con el precio, ya que ofrecen menos servicios por menor precio y a algunos......

Grupos de Interés

...Grupos de interés De acuerdo a Hellriegel, Jackson y Slocum (2010), los grupos de interés son “individuos o conjuntos de individuos que tienen intereses, derechos o patrimonio en una organización y sus actividades”. (p. 99). Es decir son personas, grupos u organizaciones que tienen interés directo o indirecto en una organización, pueden demandar algo de ella, y pueden ser afectados por las acciones de la organización, los objetivos, políticas u omisiones de esta. Según Hellriegel, Jackson y Slocum (2010), los grupos de interés primarios en las organizaciones son: “clientes, proveedores, empleados y accionistas”. (p. 99). No se pude hablar de grupos de interés sin dejar de hablar de responsabilidad social con los grupos de interés. Esta “sostiene que los administradores y otros empleados tienen obligaciones con grupos identificables que afectan la posibilidad de que la organización alcance sus metas o que se vean afectados por las mismas” (Hellriegel at all, 2010, p. 99). Ejemplo de las responsabilidades del gerente para con los grupos de interés, tanto primarios como secundarios: • Accionista: Buen retorno de inversión. • Empleados: Salarios justos y condiciones de trabajo. • Proveedores: Negocio regular y el pago puntual. • Clientes: El precio es justo y producto seguro. • Comunidad local: Empleo. • Gobierno: El empleo de la comunidad local • Medio ambiente: menos contaminación La responsabilidad social para un grupo puede entrar en conflicto con otros grupos...
