An Introduction of Foxconn Case Study

...Nicole An Introduction of Foxconn Case Study The organization I want to research is Foxconn Technology Group, which is an electronics contract manufacturing company. Terry Gou founded Foxconn in 1974. The major fields that Foxconn focus on are consumer electronics, digital content, automobile parts and the development of new energy resources and new materials. Foxconn owns many high-end clients worldwide, such as Google, Amazon.com, Apple Inc., Microsoft, Dell, Sony, Nokia and so on. The well-known products that the company manufactures contain iPhone, iPad, iPod, PS 3 and Wii. What’s more, Foxconn assembles 40 percent of all consumer electronics products sold in the world. From 1988, Foxconn started building factories in Mainland China. Until now, it has 13 factories in China with almost one million employees. And after several years development it has factories in Asia, Europe, and South America now. Besides those glamorous sides, Foxconn is facing many tough management challenges. As a manufactory company, Foxconn has hired a significant number of young employees (age between 20 and 25) to accomplish its huge amount of orders quickly. So, a series of problems came out. It hit the headlines following a series of suicides and fights among its workforce in recent years. Thus, Foxconn began to be noticed about its poor working environment, strict working discipline, high working pressure, corporate culture, and worker’s psychological problems. So...

Case Study Analysis - Introduction/Background

...Case Study Analysis - Prepared for ABC, Inc. Laurie Cavagnaro University of Phoenix: COMM 215 February 17, 2014 Case Study Analysis for ABC, Inc. Introduction The following is a case study analysis of the orientation and hiring processes at ABC, Inc. The new campus recruiter for ABC, Inc., Carl Robbins, was unable to plan, organize, and execute the employee orientation necessary for the 15 new trainees that were to begin working for Monica Carolls in July. Some of the problems that arose for Carl were due to poor communication and lack of attention to detail. There was also poor management skills involved. It is possible that Carl Robbins does not have the qualifications or skills that are required to be employed as a campus recruiter for ABC, Inc., or it is also possible that ABC, Inc., did not provide Carl with the proper training during his orientation. There also seems to be a lack of guidance and support for new hires that may be needed during the first few months of employment. Improvements need to be made to the orientation and training programs for all new employees at ABC, Inc. Background ABC, Inc. recently hired Carl Robbins as a new campus recruiter. Carl has been with the company for about six months. His first task as a campus recruiter was to hire 15 new trainees to work for Monica Carrolls, the operations supervisor. Monica was hoping to have all of the new hires working by July. The orientation was scheduled to take place on......

...Critically evaluating a business response Introduction Between 2009 and 2011, the Toyota recall crisis has aroused massive attentions, discussions and criticisms in a wide range of media circles (Piotrowski and Gray 2010). This paper will firstly review the whole crisis situation and then evaluate Toyota’s response from three different perspectives. There are many arguments about the deep root problems of Toyota’s poor reactions. This paper will only focus on two perspectives to offer recommendations. One is the corporation’s communication strategy; the other is the corporation’s crisis strategy. Case study overview Toyota Motor Corporation is one of the baggiest car manufactory in the world. It is the car industry leader on both sales and production. The brand name was treated as the synonymous with good quality and safety (Kingston 2010). However, between 2009 and 2011, Toyota was experiencing sequent recalls due to its safety issues. Recalls were mainly triggered by several car accidents in U.S. The first recall was caused by the problems with floor mats that might trap accelerator pedals in November 2009. But the crisis did not end there. Toyota continually conducted more recalls due to wide range reasons. The problems include sticky gas pedals, software glitches, steering control and fuel leakage. Before February 2011, there were nineteen separate recalls and encompassed over twenty million cars in total within different car models (Cole 2011). Toyota’s initial......

McShane 5 . 1 CA SE S T U DY The Regency Grand Hotel is a five-star hotel in Bangkok. The hotel was established 15 years ago by a local consortium of investors and has been operated by a Thai general manager throughout this time. The Regency is one of Bangkok’s most prestigious hotels and its 700 employees enjoy the status of being associated with the hotel. The hotel provides good employee benefits, above-market rate salaries and job security. In addition, a good year-end bonus amounting to four months salary is rewarded to employees regardless of the hotel’s overall performance during the year. Recently, the Regency was sold to a large American hotel chain that was very keen to expand its operations into Thailand. When the acquisition was announced, the general manager decided to take early retirement once the hotel changed ownership. The American hotel chain kept all the Regency’s employees, although a few were transferred to other positions. John Becker, an American with 10 years management experience with the hotel chain, was appointed as the new general manager of the Regency. Becker was selected as the new general manager because of his previous successes in integrating newly acquired hotels in the United States. In most of the previous acquisitions, Becker took over......

Stakeholders The stakeholders in this case were internal like the company, shareholders, employees, families and friends of the coal miners deceased or alive and external would include media, government, regulators advocates, competitors and public. What could have prevented it? According to U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration - The seals should have been much stronger, there should have been proper methane monitoring and controlling and the removal of a pump cable from the sealed area where the explosion occurred etc could have resulted less disastrous in this case. Apart from that functioning of self contained self rescue breathing devices should be checked frequently. Rescue The calls were made to the rescue team and MSHA two hours following explosion.

Introduction to Market Research: First Direct Case Study

...Choose research methods .Set budgets and deadlines .Undertake research .Analysis and evaluate Choosing the research is what I am focusing on today. There are four main sources of research, qualitative, quantitative, primary and secondary. Primary research Primary research is new information obtained by an organisation first hand from using their own resources and collecting their own data to answer specific issues or questions. The method can involve observation, experimentations, surveys, focus groups, interviews, field trials and panels. Surveys are one of the most frequently used methods of market research, there are four common ways of conducting a survey, via post, email, face to face and over the phone. The survey allows a careful study of a specific topic questioning consumers and gaining their opinion, it will involve a sequence of questions which may be in the form of a questionnaire or interview depending on the way you present it. A panel is similar to a survey but is conducted over an extended period of time with the same group of people. When analysing a consumer panel it is possible to observe the changes in buying patterns over time. This provides information such as how the consumer responds to marketing campaigns, following trends and what products are more or less popular. A focus group is a collective of consumers or potential consumers assembled together to discuss a new product or service before it is launched, or to provide feedback. A focus group......

Study Habits Introduction

...CHAPTER I Problem and Its Setting Introduction Education plays a vital role in the development of a learner. The acquisition of new knowledge, information and the way one responds to the learning environment makes him a holistic learner. It must be uncalculated in our minds that one of the purposes of education is to train learners on how to formulate solutions to problems, how to grow independently, how to apply what they learned inside the classroom in their real life situations, and how to understand things and make them useful to one’s life. You cannot learn simply by being told what to do or by watching others, you have to practice and practice frequently. Successful students employ time management systems to create study patterns that work and use active learning methods to add meaning and interest to their study time and maintaining their motivation by connecting reasons for study to their life goals and values. Learners must develop and established good study habits in doing school work, which can raised their academic performance. High educational achievement attained by the learners in school is the primary objective of education. It cannot be achieved in a split second or snap of a finger. Many school learners fail in their studies due to their inability to cope with the daily obstacles and demands in schools. Effective study skills are about more than understanding and it must be practiced in order to improve and also enable to students to work privately.......
