Improving competitive strategic planning concepts: a study to enhance professional practice in professional services

34 important to note that market expansion strategies are complex and risky, as many early entrants fail because they do not understand the cultural and political implications of the targeted markets. However, having noted the risks, the need to consider new regional and global market expansion is still unavoidable because many multinational clients look at their vendor partners to be present in their respective markets. Ku (2002), in his paper on Southeast Asia: Opportunities and Challenges described the significant changes of the Southeast Asian nations since the mid-1980s, politically and economically. Long’s (2002) article on “Asean in the New Millennium” in Ku’s (2002) study, further pointed to the aspiration of Asian’s 10 nations in regional unity, but a unity in diversity governed by the six principles as laid down in the Bali agreement. The inter-dependence and cooperation of Asian nations have been increasing over the years. Even with the various economic crises since then, the growth and resiliency in these economies have remained intact. In the Deloitte context, the market expansion for RCD will include Indo-China markets like Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos. Vietnam in the last five years has been experiencing significant double digit growth rate and it has a significant population base to generate a growing demand. It is a known fact that many companies found their investments into Vietnam to be vulnerable and challenging despite the enormous potential. Personally, I find the Vietnamese workforce to be generally diligent but challenging when it comes to aligning their work cultures and value systems to corporate agenda. This often silent tension, has sometimes led to strategy implementation challenges. The recent lifting of US sanctions in 2012 and opening up of the Myanmar market is closely monitored as a new frontier market. Companies are cautious about this emerging potential reinforcing Kim et al. (2005) description of the need to mitigate search, planning, scale and business model risk factors in their business expansion considerations.

Improving competitive strategic planning concepts: a study to enhance professional practice in professional services

This “thesis” entitled strategic planning, discusses two key topics of competitive strategy formulation and strategy implementation effectiveness are studied through two sequential integrated workplace based projects. Managers are sometimes tasked with the responsibility of formulating competitive business strategies. Mintzberg (2005), once criticised managers that they “analyse and plan like mad; they just don’t strategize”. This criticism is rightly justified because managers are often at a loss when required to formulate strategies. The managers engaged in the development of the Strategy Formulation Process (SFP), strategy models based primarily on Porter’s (2004) work on competitive strategy, the Integrated Situation Assessment Framework (ISAF) and other various strategy models reported that they have become more equipped and knowledgeable to undertake such future assignments.

While implementing that tourism- oriented action plan, however, it is quite important to consider the identity, the culture and the facts of historical environment. As a result of sustainable planning approach analyses, all the new designs have been proved to comply with the uncertainity situation that has existed coincidentally. Free approach has been used. It is clearly seen that these designs do not comply with historical environment As required by 6360 th law, new designs which were constructed before 2012 were given licence right after being assessed with building assessment form (Url 4). It can be argued that such kinds of designs on this historical environment, which has been added to UNESCO World Heritage List, are discourtesy for our cultural heritage.

Waterfront development concepts in Indonesia from the perspective of urban planning and environmental sustainability

Waterfront development concepts in Indonesia from the perspective of urban planning and environmental sustainability

River, lake and other wetlands are some examples of environmental resources, which are not readily available in any place (World Bank, 2007). They certainly have environmental values, which may include direct, indirect, optional, bequest and existence values (Plottu and Plottu, 2007). From urban planning and environment viewpoint, riverfront, beachfront or other hydrographic related environment have at least three environmental values that is direct, indirect and bequest values. Direct value is needed because we need the water resources to support the urban life. The indirect value is also important for the provision of beautiful scenery, and certainly we wish our future generation will enjoy also the presence of the resources as our legacy

Financial literacy among Australian university students

Financial literacy among Australian university students

The financial literacy literature may be readily classified into two classes: evaluations of individual financial literacy education programs and tests of financial literacy among differing cohorts or populations. Huddleston and Danes (1999) examined the impact of a high-school financial planning program on a national sample of students in the USA. They found that teaching personal finance (PF) in high schools can increase financial knowledge and have a positive impact on both teenage financial behaviour and subsequent behaviour as adults. Further, they urged that PF become a mandatory component of consumer education in schools (Huddleston and Danes, 1999). At that time, only seven states of the 50 in the US required such programs. Chatzky (2002), when commenting on the PF education of American teenagers, agreed that the majority are not getting such education, but even those that are being exposed to money matters do not appear to retain much of the content. She relied on evidence that the average high-school senior was able to answer only 50% of 31 Jump$tart Coalition for Personal Financial Literacy multi-choice PF questions correctly, whilst students who had completed a money-management course were only able to answer 48% correctly. After investigating what may have ‘gone wrong’ with the program, she suggested the following: PF education does not have ‘a home’ in US schools and high school is too late to start to teach it.

Operations Planning Process for a Whole Supply Chain: Concepts and a Meat Processing Application

Operations Planning Process for a Whole Supply Chain: Concepts and a Meat Processing Application

Fabbe-Costes and Colin’s study (1994) is considered to be the most developed in ISC planning because it recommends that logistics management should ‘imagine and develop’ strategic logistic actions made possible by strong logistics competencies. They see logistics as ‘a cross functional and deliberately open-ended management domain in the firm’ (p. 38) which enables the firm to achieve differentiation from its competitors. They show how their ideas have been applied in over thirty firms and then propose a number of analysis grids which document ways in which firms could evolve through a series of strategic moves. However, Fabbe-Costes and Colin’s study does not contain any reference to the processes required or the supports that could be provided to increase the chance of success.

E Learning Technologies and Human Learning Process

E Learning Technologies and Human Learning Process

Unfortunately, computers are not a panacea for educational problems. For teaching, the right software needs to be used. For example, a major problem with students today is that when they fall behind, they usually stay there. The good academic foundation that is needed to succeed is missed. Software can help solve this problem. “With computers as tutors, no student will be overwhelmed because he or she is missing fundamentals. The computer will repeat material until each lesson has been sufficiently mastered; only then will it move forward” (Bennett 46). This way, the computer will record the student’s progress, and touch up on concepts that were not completely understood by the individual. This individualized teaching will help make it so that “no student will ever have to enter a class with a lack of basic knowledge” (Bennett 47). Using computers as teaching “tutors” will aid and simplify learning in classes. Computers can also help slower students as well, according to Bennett: “Computerized learning will bring an improvement . . . for millions of individuals: better learning for slower students who suffer the worst deprivations under the present system” (Bennett 38).

Robotics in Clothes Manufacture

Robotics in Clothes Manufacture

The manufacture of high-quality clothing is an area that benefits from advanced design concepts and from intelligent manufacturing technology. Items are sold with high added value, driven by consumer’s satisfaction; marketing is global in scope with rapidly changing fashion trends. Buyers are right away aware of quality, reliability and value/price ratio; manufacturers are confronted by demanding chal- lenges, with pressure on prices, new fashions, customisation, wide product mix, quick response with dependable delivery dates, etc. Economies of scope can replace economies of scale, following typical patterns, including flexible spe- cialisation, lean engineering, company-wide quality, and continuous product improvement. Indeed, the creation of high-quality clothing includes skilled labour mainly at the ideation phases, and the strategy of keeping critical jobs inside the main factory and distributing outside labour in- tensive cycles might be pursued for prompt returns. On mid-term to long term horizons, a rather different strategy needs be considered, based on a series of steps, say: • work-cycles and production schedules should balance on

Concepts for Urban Planning Towards Sustainability and Improved Habitability: Participation of Individual, Society, and Governance

Concepts for Urban Planning Towards Sustainability and Improved Habitability: Participation of Individual, Society, and Governance

Abstract: In modern urban life in developing countries like India, many issues are building up due to the irresponsible and careless behavior of the population and governance alike. The wheel of time cannot be turned back to eliminate the sources of these societal problems arising out of modernization. However, there are simple and easy steps which an individual or a residential or commercial society may take to alleviate these problems. It calls for a change in the mindset and slightly modified perspective to implement these changes. The objective here is to inculcate and adopt sustainable and environment friendly practices and habits by modern urban population so that the cities would become a better habitat for the human race in future. There are financial commitments to be made and here, local governance may offer tax rebates to offset the expenses incurred by individual / societies in adopting the eco-friendly lifestyles. Few concepts which may pave the way towards this goal have been discussed with reference to the Indian cities. This would call for educations and awareness, participation of individual and communities, the monitoring role by the governance with reward and penalty system, as the case may be. The concepts discussed are based on the life in Indian cities but could be applicable, in part or whole, for the cities in other developing countries of the world. The models presented here can be considered while planning the infrastructure and stipulations for new / developing cities by the government.
