|Innovation |2 |

III. Justifications

Les principaux axes de développement sont :

• Tout en restant sur un segment de luxe, de prestige, la Maison Hermès doit doper sa créativité : Hermès se doit d’innover si elle souhaite conserver sa place sur le marché du luxe, même si les dirigeants de la Maison se disent aborder la création des produits à leur façon et ne pas se positionner par rapport à la concurrence.

• Accentuer sa présence à l’international : Déjà très solidement implanté en France, sa terre d’origine et particulièrement bien implantée dans la zone euro, aux Etats-Unis et en Chine, la Maison Hermès souhaite consolider cette position et élargir sa présence sur le marché américain et asiatique, notamment en Chine avec l’ouverture de 4 magasins par an. Mais chercher également de nouveaux débouchés, vers les pays émergents, et développer une clientèle locale afin d’être moins dépendant des flux touristiques.

• Augmenter la capacité de production afin d’accentuer la croissance de la demande : L’objectif est d’atteindre 10% de croissance du CA, prévu chaque année, pour cela Hermès se doit d’améliorer sa productivité. La Maison Hermès se doit de respecter les objectifs de rentabilité qui est le gage de la pérennité et de l’indépendance du groupe.

Hermès met également en place d’autres stratégies, au niveau du diagnostic interne :

• Stratégie de croissance interne

- Stratégie de globalisation : Déjà fortement implanté au niveau mondial sur le continent asiatique, américain et européen, Hermès poursuit sa stratégie de croissance à l’international en s’implantant en Russie, avec l’ouverture de deux magasins à Moscou, et en accentuant sa présence sur le marché américain et asiatique (ouverture d’un deuxième magasin à New York dans le quartier des affaires, implantation dans le New Jersey, ouverture de nouveaux magasins en Chine, rénovation et ouverture de nouveaux magasins en Corée et au Japon)

- Stratégie de conquête : Conquérir un marché ou un segment de marché où on n’est pas encore. Ainsi, Hermès a racheté la société Soficuir, spécialisée dans les peaux exotiques, afin de proposer la meilleure qualité à ses clients.

- Stratégie de culture intensive : Développer les ventes en direction des clients actuels en les faisant acheter davantage. Hermès se positionne sur une création ambitieuse visant à toujours renforcer la richesse de ses collections afin de satisfaire au mieux ses clients, de les fidéliser et donc de les faire acheter plus, ou plus souvent.

• Stratégie de croissance externe (2ème semestre)

- Stratégie de coopération : La Maison Hermès s’est associée au chantier naval monégasque, avec le constructeur-designer italien, Wally, pour créer une nouvelle marque Why et s’implanter dans le monde du yacht de luxe.

- Stratégie de rachat : Hermès a racheté la société Soficuir, (segment maroquinerie) spécialisée dans les peaux exotiques mais également les chaussures John Lobb (segment prêt-à-porter), l’orfèvre Puiforcat ou encore la cristallerie Saint-Louis (segment bijouterie). Le groupe détient également 25% du capital de l’horloger suisse Vaucher Manufacture Fleurier (segment horlogerie).

- Stratégie d’alliance additive : Le groupe détient une participation de 35% dans le capital maison de couture Jean-Paul Gautier depuis 1999. Ce dernier a été choisi pour dessiner une collection femme.

Hermès conjugue des stratégies de croissance interne et externe et se trouve donc dans une stratégie globale de croissance mixte. Mais pour l’année 2009, comme le déclare le gérant du groupe, l’accent est surtout mis sur la croissance interne.

...Design and Print Introduction This booklet is one of a series of four aimed at researchers in the early stages of their career life cycle. The comments within the booklet are based upon information collected at a series of discussion groups and interviews at Strathclyde and Glasgow Universities. The questions put to the discussion groups were based broadly upon the performance criteria and knowledge requirements identified in the report "Draft Occupational Standards in Research" (Gealy et al, 1997). The booklet is in two sections. The first section, "Interpreting Research Results and Findings" considers various aspects concerning the interpretation of results. Generally the section considers how to confirm the reliability and analysis of results, the avoidance of bias or over-interpretation of results, and the identification from the results of potential areas of future research. Section two, "Documenting Research Results and Findings," examines methods of presenting research findings, the physical aspects of record keeping, and what should be recorded within research records both to ensure their value to the researcher and to ensure that they are legally and ethically correct. The booklet is not intended to be read in one fell swoop, but rather to be dipped into as and when the occasion arises. Both sections within the booklet are subdivided into subsections each of which consist of: • Introduction • Points of advice, and examples from experienced......

Our strategy is to attack and focus on a specific market segment until we have a large market share. We are Apex Performance and we want you to get your "bang for the buck" out of our products. Our company's objectives focused on five important goals: 1. Grow out earnings per share by at least 4% in the first few years. 2. Increase our Return on Equity (ROE) each year by at least 10%. 3. Uphold an A- credit rating in case we needed to borrow money. 4. Keep a good image rating by maintaining at least an 80. 5. Increase stock prices an average of 5% annually. The graph below shows that Apex Performance struggled to obtain our image rating goal of 80. Our numbers were below average and our goal was not achieved in our first three years as a company.

...knowledge and technology base. Of the four reasons that Elmut and Kathawala (2001) outlined for the emergence of strategic alliances, it appears that there are two primary reasons for why Rolls-Royce has chosen to partner with different firms. For one thing, the company stands to gain from such partnership in terms of entering new markets with which it is unfamiliar. Brokering a deal with local corporations allows Rolls Royce to expand its market while at the same time benefiting from the expertise of an old-timer in the market. Secondly, Rolls Royce is also into strategic partnerships in order to obtain new technology and best quality at the cheapest cost. The company has four business divisions, all of which need intense research and development funding. Instead of going through their own R and D cycle, Rolls-Royce can share their knowledge and technology with their strategic partners at a much lower cost, thus ensuring that each division is well-maintained but is not draining the company’s resources for continuous R and D. While Rolls Royce can actually provide the funding for its own R and D, it is more cost-efficient for the company to trade information with its partners and make the product or service immediately available in the market. It must be noted, however, that it is not just Rolls Royce who stands to reap all the wonderful benefits from the strategic alliance. Their partners also take advantage of the Rolls-Royce brand name and the company’s existing network......

We believe Blockbuster offers customers a value-prices entertainment experience, combining the broad product depth of a specialty retailer with local neighborhood convenience" (Farfan, 2014 Blockbuster's Mission Statement).

...Comprehensive Strategic Analysis Panera Bread and the Fast Food Industry Amy Mayhall, Nick Milberger, Ian Euler, Deleon Dallas 1. What are the dominant characteristics of the industry? There are many characteristics in the fast-casual industry. These characteristics are all important for competing restaurants to consider when trying to gain competitive advantage. The characteristics that are most relevant to this industry are; market size and growth rate, number of rivals, scope of competitive rivalry, number of buyers, degree of product differentiation and vertical integration. Market size and growth rate are rapidly increasing. Sales reached $23 billion in 2010, that is 30 percent higher than it was in 2006. Survey results in 2010 mentioned that the reason for many people not eating at a fast casual restaurant in the last month was because there was a lack of availability. This means that there are people searching for fast casual because of the healthier choices but there are not as many establishments as there are of fast-food choices. This gives the industry a lot of room to grow. (Sena, 2011) In 2009 there were approximately 600 fast-casual establishments in the U.S. Rivalry for this market is strong. There are hundreds of fast casual establishments that offer quick and easy food. This makes rivalry high. There is always a threat of a company breaking into the market with a new idea that will steal consumers and revenue. This threat causes companies to try......
