Sarah Lee

...Overview Sara Lee Corporation has a vision “to be the first choice of consumers and customers around the world by bringing together innovative ideas, continuous improvement and people who can make things happen.” The company’s vision can be summed up simply with their mission: “To simply delight you…everyday.” The company has been trying to achieve these goals since 1939 when the company began. Sara Lee employs a broad differentiation strategy, and has been diversifying since inception, mainly by acquisition. In 2005, the company, in an effort to raise profitability, began to divest eight of its business. The company’s goal was to increase sales to at least $14 billion, and increase operating profit to 12%. The idea was to focus efforts on the good, beverage and household product industry, which were seen as more profitable, and profits would increase. In 2008, Sara Lee launched an initiative called Project Accelerate. This program was designed to cut costs and increase productivity by focusing on overhead costs, streamlining the supply chain and outsourcing. It is expected to save of sum of $350 to $400 million by the end of 2012. By 2010, Project Accelerate had saved the company $180 million. The management team also decided to buyback $2.5 to $3 billion of common shares over a three year period. Despite their efforts, by the end of 2010, Sara Lee has revenues of just $10.8 billion and the operating profit margin was well below the target 12% at 8.5%. In an attempt to......

...Sara Lee Corporation ANALYSIS OF THE CASE Sara Lee retrenched seven of its business units in 2006 in order to focus its resources on its more profitable industries. The company’s goal is to boost its sales lines by at least 2 percent and increase its profit margin to 12% by 2010. By developing three competitive capabilities in each of its remaining business units, Sara Lee looks to improve its net profits within the next few years. Summary of the case       This case study provides an evaluation of Sara Lee Corporation and particularly its operations of product lines available through the Wal-Mart stores.   To begin with, an effective SWOT analysis of the company was conducted where strengths and opportunities are identified while addressing possible threats and improving its weaknesses to avoid giving the competition an aggressive advantage.   Marketing requires effective identification of issues as a key factor in devising the best methods of addressing them.   Therefore, Kirk Nelson identifies the Basic Hipster style to be a major problem in the market because it was not doing well.   Effective establishment of the best possible solution is therefore critical to maintain the corporation’s market share for the Wal-Mart Account.   This analysis generates key alternatives that Kirk Nelson as the Sara Lee Wal-Mart Girl’s Panty analyst should consider in getting out of the current deadlock.   History       Sara Lee Corporation is a fortune 500 company listed on...

Sara Lee Strategy

...Sara Lee Corp. | Retrenchment Strategy Review | | [Type the author name] | [Pick the date] | Introduction Sara Lee Corporation, then known as C.D. Kenny Company, was established in 1939 and had net sales of $24 million. By 1998-1999 the company had acquired over forty related and non-related businesses and had peaked at revenues of $20 billion. During the late 1990’s Sara Lee managers began to experience a difficult time in managing the company and increasing profits. This was due to the highly diversified and globally scattered operations that Sara Lee Corp. had developed into. (Gamble & Thomson, 2010) Over the next decade Sarah Lee would begin to transform the company into a streamlined, less globally and industrial diverse company; with a focus and commitment on superior products and customer service. The transformation would include divesting of businesses that contributed to approx. 37% of annual revenue and a spin-off of branded apparel into a new business, Hanesbrand, with the expectation that the retrenchment initiatives would generate $3 billion in net after-tax proceeds. With the introduction of a new CEO in 2000, Steven McMillan launched a new strategic initiative to narrow Sara Lee’s focus by divesting of unrelated business assets and companies that were not key to the organizations focused industries. In 2005 Brenda Barnes was appointed as President and CEO of Sara Lee Corp and with her appointment the announcement that Sara Lee Corp.......

Charles Lee

...Charles Lee: General in the American Revolutionary War By David E. LaClair Jr Charles Lee, a general in the American Revolutionary war, is a historic figure in American history. Serving under George Washington, Charles Lee participated in a number of battles. However, history says Charles Lee was treacherous to the cause, all the while that he was in command during that time; he was acting in bad faith toward the Americans. His influence in the army was, at all times, mischievous (General Charles Lee: Traitor of the American Revolution). To the British, Charles Lee was a traitor who turned on England to fight under George Washington. Due to Charles Lee’s treacherous actions against America, it would lead to his downfall in the following years. Born in England to an aristocratic family, Lee had already joined the army at the age of 12, and in the 1750's was sent to colonial America to fight in the French and Indian War (also known as the Seven Years War). It was here that he first served with the man who would be his superior officer later in life, General George Washington. Together they survived the bloody disaster of Major General Edward Braddock's defeat at the hands of the French Canadians and Indians in 1755 (American History Suite 101) at the Monongahela River at the forks with the Allegheny and Ohio Rivers near modern Pittsburgh (Fort Pitt) in the Battle of Monongahela (British Battles). Not only was it here that Charles Lee first came into contact with George......

Answer: Eddie Liu one of Lee and Li senior assistants found a loophole in the power of attorney from one of the firm’s clients, SanDisk Corporation (SanDisk), which allowed him to illegally sell shares and sneak out from Taiwan. Unfortunately, Lee, and Lee had no insurance to cover this embezzlement. Lee and Li and Sandisk corporations and United Microelectronic Inc. (UMC) are the parties majorly affected by this embezzlement. Lee and Li firm running with great core values with a motto “we care, we serve, we excel” was globally connected and has thousands of clients across many countries, this embezzlement might affect the brand name of the company and the trust among the potential customers of the Lee & Li’s firm. This also results in losing trust among the employees and clients who have been tied to Lee & Li from many years. This will have huge financial impact for both Lee & li and the Sandisk corporations. Lee and Li might get bankrupt and might not be able to pay their employees. The relation between Lee & Li and the Sandisk companies will be affected. Being a globally connected country with thousands of clients Lee & Li must have to monitor their policies without having loopholes. They might lose the trust in the ethics of the other employees. Sandisk Corporation being a multinational company will have financial impact on its operations. This Embezzlement also affects the trust of Sandisk Corporation on Lee & Li firm. The company......

...strategy changed the nature of its business lineup? The strategy at Sara Lee is to expand globally, for Sara Lee acquiring new business models to expand into new product categories is how they plan to achieve this goal. For many years Sara Lee has successfully acquired both related and unrelated products, but will now streamline this a little more with the retrenchment strategy. The previous management team struggled with this broad product offering and the disseminated locations. The retrenchment strategy will allow Sara Lee to focus their resources on a smaller, tight knit beverage, food and household business. It will also allow for a change in the model from a wholesale distributor to a larger retail company. 2. What is your assessment of the long-term attractiveness of the industries represented in Sara Lee Corp.’s business portfolio? Sara Lee has the potential to grow. With a focus on core products that are their food company, they have dropped the dead weight of not so profitable products. The food industry will continue to grow within reason due to the requirement of us to have food to survive. It is beneficial to Sara Lee to have established brand power within the market segments as well. If Sara Lee stays active in the market segments and acquires only products that benefit them in the long term, they should keep profits up. 3. What is your assessment of the competitive strength of Sara Lee Corp.’s different business units? The North America has strong......

Lee, Theoretical

...Individual Autonomy and Social Structure Dorothy Lee York University Throughout the article, “Individual Autonomy and Social Structure” Lee elaborates on different cultures and how they balance society’s social structure and order with the need of individual autonomy. Lee states, “to what extent can we allow a child to make his own decisions, to speak and act for himself?” (Lee 6). The key social problem that Lee addresses is the conflict between society and individual autonomy. Lee explains by comparing our western society to several aboriginal societies and suggests that we are limited to the things we can do, we are restricted to the views of society, what is right and what is wrong. Lee further explores different cultures and discusses many cultural practices and some, where this issue has been resolved. In this essay, I am going to discuss and analyze examples provided by Lee to show how other societies reached individual autonomy through the cultural practice of child-rearing In different society, child rearing takes its own form. In certain societies like a Sikh household, children are treated with respect since birth (Pg 7). In a Navaho tribe, a child and an adult are the same, there is no distinction, and this is a form of respect they show (Pg 12). Lee further discusses the Wintu Indian society and how individual autonomy is resolved through their own form of child bearing. They believe that guidance rather than command is most suitable because it does not......

...BRUCE LEE: ENTER THE SIX-PACK Enter The Six-Pack: Train Like Bruce Lee By Arnav Sarkar Last updated: Mar 30, 2015 40 years ago, young athletes found inspiration in Bruce Lee's peerless intensity and wiry strength. Not much has changed since. Get out the heavy bag and make Lee's training style work for you! "Absorb what is useful. Reject what is useless." These legendary words are often attributed to Bruce Lee, and while it's debatable whether they actually originated with him, there's no doubt that they strike at the core of his martial philosophy. His legendary and eclectic fighting style of Jeet Kune Do, "the way of the intercepting fist," focused on crafting his strikes around his opponent's incoming attack, at a moment when anything extraneous would just slow him down with tragic results. As a result, he was as unpredictable as he was entertaining. Openness and flexibility also defined how Lee approached his physical training. While trainers and his peers wasted their time with territorial squabbles and quests for one-size-fits-all training programs, Lee was receptive to a wide range of traditions. He took what he needed from martial arts, bodybuilding, and other styles of training. He was devoted to his barbell and kettlebells, but also loved his Nautilus-style Marcy Circuit Trainer. He practiced his kicks and punches daily with full intensity, but he also ran, cycled, and jumped rope. Images courtesy of Bruce Lee Enterprises, LLC. All Rights Reserved. BRUCE LEE® is......

Four of those units had negative margins of more than 10%, with different units seeing steady or sharp declines in revenues in profits since 2004.

...Lee College Financial Statements ACC 380: Accounting for Not-For-Profit Organizations June 4, 2012 Lee College Financial Statements Why do Not-For-Profit organizations need financial statements? The accounting system for nonprofits is designed to capture the economic activities of the firm and its financial position. The financial statements are constructed based on the “Accounting Equation” in which: Assets = Liabilities + Net Assets (Keating, 2008). This equation is very helpful, but not show us how or why net assets change over time. This is the purpose of the financial statements. For Lee College, a private not-for-profit, the financial statements required under the FASB Statement 117 are the Statement of Financial Position, Statement of Activities, and Statement of Cash Flows (Copley, 2011). The focus of this paper will be on the Statement of Activities and the acceptable alternative. The Statement of Activities’ purpose is to show revenues, expenses, gains, losses, and reclassifications and to show the changes in net assets by net asset class (unrestricted, temporarily restricted, or permanently restricted) (Copley, 2011). FASB Statement 117, as stated earlier, requires the Statement of Activities as part of the three required financial statements for a private, not-for-profit college. However, there is an acceptable alternative to the Statement of Activities. An acceptable alternative to the Statement of Activities is to present two statements: 1) Statement...
