    of Communications). It is therefore not surprising that Canadians are among the biggest users of telecommunications in the world. For example, in 1999, Canadians made more than three billion long-distance calls (Dept. of Communications). The importance of the information economy is increasing over time as new technology improves the communications infrastructure and as industries that provide content over that infrastructure continue to grow. Canada has one of the most developed communications infrastructure in the world: more than 98% of households have telephones; 74% have cable television service and 99% of the population can receive off-air broadcasting signals as of 1993.

  5. Has The Concentration Of Media Ownership Led To A Decrease Or Expansion In Media Diversity?

    The 1982 declaration on the freedom of expression and information states the importance of an "existence of a wide range of independent media, permitting the reflection of diversity of ideas and opinions". This concentrated ownership can occur in a number of different ways and for different reasons; through mergers, acquisitions and take-overs. Presently 'traditional media' (i.e. terrestrial TV, publishing, radio) is being joined by forms of media resulting from new technologies from the telecommunications field (cable, satellite, Internet etc.). A process of market convergence is underway as broadcasting, print media and communications media combine through these mergers, acquisitions and alliances.

  6. Does OPEC have a monopoly in the supply of oil?

    It can be argued however, that it is also a monopoly. This is due to the fact that OPEC has 60% of control over the oil that it traded internationally. Usually, a monopoly is classified as anything which has a market share of over 25%, OPEC has almost triple that which suggests it may be a monopoly. However, due to the fact it doesn't price discriminate and aims to "secure fair and stable prices for producers, and ensure an efficient and regular supply of oil", suggests it can't be a monopoly.

  8. The 4p's (Product, Price, Promotion, Place) Product 'Yathu's Supermarket' sells several of goods such as all groceries items, wines, alcohol, etc.

    So overall, we have to sell the products look desirable for the customers so that they will buy it. Price Price is also a major factor in determining how much sales and profit we make because customers normally look for cheap products so if we sell the products at a cheaper price then it is going to attract customers so eventually we are going to increase sales. So as we are a small business we have to lower our prices to a relatively low price than our competitors to catch customers' attention and try to persuade them to buy the product.

  9. As a Company we have decided to sell dishwasher friendly decorated mugs. The group intends to but the mugs and decorate them with original patterns. Although mugs aren't the most exciting of products

    The Company has two main objectives: 1. To make high quality goods. 2. And to either break even or even better to make a profit. The company will make high quality goods but not only that they will be original and interesting. If these come out right it is likely that they may entice more possible customers to our stall. The company may nit be a worthwhile company to begin with, but if it was a proper shop; it is very likely that it would last, as then it would be able to sell a wide range of goods.

  11. What have been the recent challenges to Steinway's Value Creation? CompetitionMain competitors are Yamaha - the largest piano manufacturer in the world.

    This resulted in declining sales and frequent order cancellations. The used pianos also pose an issue of how Steinway would hold well of its value creation at the customer end1.

    Strengths- they remained #2 to Nike, which would not give them too much trouble passing over Nike. They contained World Wide distribution, which gave them a chance to try to win over customers in different countries. The best thing that they have is that they have good financial strengths. As long as they are maintaining a good financial status, they would be able to purchase more products and stay in competition with their competitors. Weakness- the weaknesses that Reebok has are; their main product is based on women's shoes, which are not a massive marketing product. Women's shoes are starting to sale because of the growth of women's sports but they will never be able to top the market of men's shoes.

  13. Evaluation of my design and marketing for my ready to eat dessert.

    From a range of magazines I made a collage of different desserts and annotated it, I used this as a kind of brainstorm of ideas, such as the different layers and colours that could be used. The internet was a big help to my research as I used the supermarkets websites to find out prices of products and ingredients. In order to condense the range of desserts I was considering I made myself a speciation table, this stated the criteria my product should meet.

  15. Competition and Regulation of Markets. A case study of BT.

    BT continued to be a state owned company up until 1984 when the Telecom Act was introduced and it was privatised. In the same year OFTEL was also created, a regulator which controlled the prices which BT set for its customers. OFTEL was set up in the interest of the customers, and focused on providing choice, value for money and quality of service for the customer via competition. As an OLIGOPOLY, BT faced little direct competition at the time. OFTEL therefore aimed to encourage more competition from other telecommunication companies by granting more and more telecoms companies licenses, it also disallowed BT to cross-subsidise its business.

  16. The Boston Matrix

    But I would also suggest keeping some of their old lines, the more successful lines. This would lower the risk factor as the new product might not do as well as they expected and they would be ruined. They have to move into the "niche market" as the passage says that there will be no profits left. 2) Explain why it may be less of a risk for PLP to carry on with its present customers as well as forming a new "niche market" for the new product and using a different brand name.

  17. Marketing Management

    Inadequate or no research could significantly hinder a company's growth and bankrupt a fledgling organization. How to Research There are several ways to conduct research for a product or business. No matter what approach you take, the following issues need to be considered: demographics, environment, legal, technical, and social. (Kotler 238) If a marketing plan includes information based on this list, a company will have a good idea how a product will perform. Each aspect can be divided into other subsets to help individualize the correct information required for a particular service or product. Examples of good questions are: What is the age and gender we are trying to reach?

    These decision models allow the organisation to examine investment decisions to move towards a choice were the organisation would feel comfortable in reaching their objectives or goals.

  19. "Mini" Case Analysis for Squirrel Defense, Inc. (SDI)

    Rogers Consulting Services (hereafter, RCS) found the primary source of the problem to be in the manufacturing area of SDI's business.

Partially assembled product was strewn all over multiple tables with no apparent purposeful order or placement. The second problem area RCS identified was with production cost. The Red Cedar Country Style feeder cost more to produce than the Town Style feeder, yet the Town Style feeder was marketed as a higher-priced item.

    The key point here is the amount of capital an organisation needs to enter into competition within the pharmaceutical industry.A lot of money is needed by these organisations as they are in the drug innovation `buiness', and as such the organisations need a high intellectual base to be able to conduct the lengthy amounts of research and development that is needed for prescription drugs. The high cost of bringing theses drugs through development might have also been wasted if they never see the market, due to them not being approved by the Fda (serentyde e.g)

  21. Black & Decker Case Analysis.

    The Tradesman category was the fastest growing of the three categories in 1990. Black & Decker's product research showed that the share problem with Tradesman was not with product quality or brand awareness, rather with image. Black & Decker's move "from the garage to the house" diluted its image as a power tool company and made the brand name synonymous with household products such as Dustbuster and Spacemaker. Heavy promotion of household products served to increase power tool sales in the Consumer segment, possibly due to greater brand recognition/loyalty, while failing to increase sales in the Tradesman segment.

  24. Report for the Rainbow company - What is required to run the business properly?

    Budget- must have a budget so that they are able to have more control over their finances.
