Local businesses under Tata Group’ umbrella uses the Domestic Strategy which requires product differentiation base on the local adaption. Such example is the Tata Nano Car and the Tata Ace Truck (picture below), produced by Tata Motors at an affordable price for the people in India. Ratan Tata wanted to produce a car which is super cheap yet reliable. Aside from this example, Tata Group has also proven that the goods and services they produced have subsequently benefited the people in India. As such would be the Solar system project which helped villages circulated off the power grid with power. Tata Group made power available to these villages at an affordable price.

...Spring 2001 NTT DoCoMo and Japan’s Wireless Industry Anu Bhave Haakon Brown Will Chu Jose De Oteyza Mario Lewis Wendy Miller Luis Pintado NTT DoCoMo seems to have the elements of a successful global player. First, it is in a promising market. The wireless phone market is growing rapidly and industry forecasts predict more than half the world’s population will own a cellular phone by the year 2003, a much higher penetration rate than computers. Furthermore, based in Japan, DoCoMo has the advantage over American and European counterparts, like AT&T, Sprint and Vodafone AirTouch, of being closer to the 3.3 billion person Asian market. In addition, DoCoMo is at the leading edge of technology and is expected to be the first mobile operator to launch a 3rd Generation (3G) wireless network by Spring 2001. NTT DoCoMo Background In 1959 Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) entered the telephone industry in Japan with an offering of maritime telephone service.

Merger Between Walt Disney and Pixar

...to analysis the image of Change within the two companies that choice to compare and contrast. While researching the information on Disney and Pixar, I came across some differences between Steve Jobs and Michael Eisner regarding how the two companies will work together. Going through the articles that I have read through they all show that Disney and Pixar has always been competing against each other on who can make the best animated motion picture. Here is a little history Disney has always been about producing animated features and live-action movies and as for Pixar they have always produced computer-animated movies. In this paper I will be talking about the Image Change, basis of image, application to Company #1, Company #2, pressures for change, differs from others how and the unintended consequences from Image. Lets begin with the three Images; I choose Director, Navigator and Nurturer. The reason that I choose these three is because of the people that were involved with this merge. There was Steve Jobs who was the President of Pixar and Michael Eisner who was the Chief Executive Office for The Walt Disney Company in 2005, Einser resigned and Robert Iger took his place. These three men I put them down under Director, because they were the ones who were in charge of executing the changes between the two companies. Next is Ed Catmull and David Stainton who were are in charge of making sure that the change occur even though there will be some things that they will not......

What Is the Difference Between a Merger and a Takeover?

...In a general sense, mergers and takeovers (or acquisitions) are very similar corporate actions - they combine two previously separate firms into a single legal entity. Significant operational advantages can be obtained when two firms are combined and, in fact, the goal of most mergers and acquisitions is to improve company performance and shareholder value over the long-term. The motivation to pursue a merger or acquisition can be considerable; a company that combines itself with another can experience boosted economies of scale, greater sales revenue and market share in its market, broadened diversification and increased tax efficiency. However, the underlying business rationale and financing methodology for mergers and takeovers are substantially different. A merger involves the mutual decision of two companies to combine and become one entity; it can be seen as a decision made by two "equals". The combined business, through structural and operational advantages secured by the merger, can cut costs and increase profits, boosting shareholder values for both groups of shareholders. A typical merger, in other words, involves two relatively equal companies, which combine to become one legal entity with the goal of producing a company that is worth more than the sum of its parts. In a merger of two corporations, the shareholders usually have their shares in the old company exchanged for an equal number of shares in the merged entity. For example, back in 1998, American......

...NTT DoCoMo: Marketing i-mode To ease the congestion problem, in 1997, DoCoMo gave Enoki—a lifetime employee who had worked his way up through NTT’s engineering ranks—a mandate to convince DoCoMo subscribers to begin using their cell phones in a fundamentally different way. More specifically, the mandate was to build a wireless Internet service that would create demand for sending/receiving text-based data via cell phones. Enoki decided to use DoCoMo’s existing packet switched network for the new service, which minimized the overall investment associated with the project.3 One advantage of such a network was that instead of having to keep a wireless circuit open for the duration of a phone call, it was possible for DoCoMo to interweave text-based data packets into a voice stream—allowing multiple subscribers to “share” a single circuit. In building a team to help him create the mobile Internet service, Enoki began by recruiting two outsiders who he believed would help him break free of the rigid, technical mindset that permeated NTT’s engineering-driven culture. The first was Mari Matsunaga, a marketing guru who had achieved a reputation as an editor-in-chief extraordinaire at Recruit, a Japanese magazine publishing house. Given the fact that Matsunaga had zero technical expertise (she didn’t even own a cell phone at the time), Enoki’s decision to bring her on board took many in the company by surprise. Enoki explained: In traditional Japanese companies,......

...NTT Docomo i-mode 1. How would you assess the profitability and attractiveness of the telecom industry in Japan at the time of the launch of i-mode? What would you conclude from a five force industry analysis? Regulation plays a crucial role in defining market conditions in mobile telephony, as they allocate the radio spectrum licenses that provide the conduit for transmitting data wirelessly – as such, regulators can shape the nature of competition. Competition for market share in the late 1990s was cut-throat in Japan. Deregulation continued apace in Japan and by 1998 a flood of large foreign carriers and equipment manufacturers had entered the fast-growing market as the government lifted the last remaining limitations on foreign investment . Thus the telecom industry was at its peak with a large pool of players wanting to enter the market as can be seen from Exhibit 4. By January 1999, the wireless market in Japan had experienced seven years of rapid expansion (Exhibit 1), with every third person owning a mobile phone. Although the size of the market was still small compared to that of fixed lines, its annual average growth rate of 68% was astounding compared to the an emic growth (1.5%) of the fixed line market. In Japan, the lack of global uptake of the Japanese Personal Digital Cellular (PDC) network standard had important repercussions for both the intensity of competition......

Docomo Imode

...Assignment Questions: DOCOMO Case 1. How would you assess the profitability and attractiveness of the telecom industry in Japan at the time of the launch of i-mode? What would you conclude from a five force industry analysis? Porter’s Industry Analysis considers five forces of the industry. With respect to the data provided in the case “NTT DoCoMo i-mode TM, following can be concluded: 1) Competitive rivalry Competitive Rivalry is high if entry into the industry is easy. Ohbushi, the CEO of NTT DoCoMo was determined to keep his company ahead of the competitors. Any new innovation could be copied easily. For example, when i-mode was introduced after an extensive expenditure on R&D, the competitors, DDI Cellular and IDO, announced their own mobile data communication services, called EZ Web and EZ Access respectively. Hence, it can be seen that the competitive rivalry was very high. 2) Power of suppliers Being in the services sector, DoCoMo’s i-mode’s suppliers were not raw material providers but the content providers whom DoCoMo wished to make its partners. It offered a win-win deal for its partners. DoCoMo proposed that it would not purchase content from the providers or equipment from manufacturers but it would allow its users to access these as its official websites and mobile phones. DoCoMo would act as the gateway. NTT DoCoMo’s insight into the needs of its content providers was an important contributor to its early success. By taking care of the......
