Nada Sanders Forecasting Fundamentals

This book is for everyone who wants to make better forecasts. It is not about mathematics and statistics. It is about following a well-established forecasting process to create and implement good forecasts. This is true whether you are forecasting global markets, sales of SKUs, competitive strategy, or market disruptions. Today, most forecasts are generated using software. However, no amount of technology and statistics can compensate for a poor forecasting process. Forecasting is not just about generating a number. Forecasters need to understand the problems they are trying to solve. They also need to follow a process that is justifiable to other parties and be implemented in practice. This is what the book is about. Accurate forecasts are essential for predicting demand, identifying new market opportunities, forecasting risks, disruptions, innovation, competition, market growth and trends. Companies can navigate this daunting landscape and improve their forecasts by following some well-established principles. This book is written to provide the fundamentals business leaders need in order to make good forecasts. These fundamentals hold true regardless of what is being forecast and what technology is being used. It provides the basic foundational principles all companies need to achieve competitive forecast accuracy.

A concise introduction to IMT-Advanced Systems, including LTE-Advanced and WiMAX There exists a strong demand for fully extending emerging Internet services, including collaborative applications and social networking, to the mobile and wireless domain. Delivering such services can be possible only through realizing broadband in the wireless. Two candidate technologies are currently competing in fulfilling the requirements for wireless broadband networks, WiMAX and LTE. At the moment, LTE and its future evolution LTE-Advanced are already gaining ground in terms of vendor and operator support. Whilst both technologies share certain attributes (utilizing Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) in downlink, accommodating smart antennas and full support for IP-switching, for example), they differ in others (including uplink technology, scheduling, frame structure and mobility support). Beyond technological merits, factors such as deployment readiness, ecosystem maturity and migration feasibility come to light when comparing the aptitude of the two technologies. LTE, LTE-Advanced and WiMAX: Towards IMT-Advanced Networks provides a concise, no-nonsense introduction to the two technologies, covering both interface and networking considerations. More critically, the book gives a multi-faceted comparison, carefully analyzing and distinguishing the characteristics of each technology and spanning both technical and economic merits. A “big picture” understanding of the market strategies and forecasts is also offered. Discusses and critically evaluates LTE, LTE-Advanced and WiMAX (Legacy and Advanced) Gives an overview of the principles and advances of each enabling technology Offers a feature-by-feature comparison between the candidate technologies Includes information which appeals to both industry practitioners and academics Provides an up-to-date report on market and industry status

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 20, University of St Andrews, course: Corporate Finance, language: English, abstract: This report aims to evaluate the validity of corporate financial practices in the under-­‐researched auto parts industry, additionally considering the ownership structure of companies because of a division in share distribution. Recent economic struggles have impacted the automobile industry, resulting in stagnating sales on a global scale (Haugh et al, 2010). This affects the auto parts industry, a direct supplier to automobile companies, aftermarket and exchange parts. Rising raw material costs have increased the pressure on auto parts manufacturers, as buyers disallow price increases. Market stimulus, mostly from Asia-­‐Pacific, is forecast to increase total parts market by 20% by 2015 (Datamonitor, 2011).

Natascha Ljubic Market liberalization. an analysis of the Austrian electricity market

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2004 in the subject Economics - Case Scenarios, grade: 1 (A), Vienna University of Economics and Business (New Media Lab), course: Baccalaureut Work, language: English, abstract: The liberalization of the European electricity market is supposed to reduce electricity prices by opening up to competition and by promoting integration of the common European market. Deregulation allows energy consumers to choose their electric energy supplier and therefore dissolves electric utility monopolies. The resulting re-regulation and restructuring of the electricity industry has created oppor-tunities and challenges that need to be addressed to ensure long-term capacity sustainability. The promise and benefit expectations of electricity market liberalization may need to be tempered by the reality of the process. Market liberalization of the electricity supply sector depends on many different factors and boundary conditions in the EU. In order to analyze these issues, we will use Austria as an example showing the development in liberalization, deregulation, and even re-regulation processes and the impact on the industry structure and final consumer pricing. Given the industry structure, incentives to invest in the Austrian transmission and distribution networks remain to be established. We will show that high inflexible taxes and monopoly protected transmission costs, both together account for 80% of the price of electricity. Moreover, only 20% of the electrici...

Market segmentation, dividing the market into submarkets, and branding products and services plays a major part in marketing activities.Globalization is one of words used nowadays to describe the convergence of cultures. Cultures are believed to move closer together as a result of increased travel, better communication methods and enhanced transportation opportunities. Companies try to anticipate this change by offering standardized products to a global audience. Cultural differences are a logical barrier to standardization of the marketing strategies on a global scale. However, even on a national scale, there are many different types of consumers, who need to be treated differently. Market segmentation plays a major part in marketing, as all marketing activties depend on precisely defined and carefully choosen market segments.

According to MCP Magazine, there were over 200,000 current Windows 2000 Server MCSEs at the beginning of 2003, and an additional 1.2 million MCP looking to become MCSEs. Syngress has launched a complete line of MCSE 2003 Study Guide/DVD Training Systems (Core 4 plus 3 most popular electives) to publish simultaneously with the launch of the exams. While many industry analysts view the certification market as flat, the reality is that there has been a dramatic reduction in the number of certification series being published since MCSE 2000 and the handful of quality series left should all garner significant gains in market share. The Syngress series was formally published by McGraw-Hill, and the core titles averaged over 40,000 units in retail sales while the electives averaged over 15,000 units each. Through aggressive promotion to our over 70,000 registered users of MCSE 2000 books, strong representation in the retail channel, and the inclusion of a DVD, this comprehensive and unique package is well positioned to attract a major share of the MCSE 2003 certification market.

Christopher Byrne A Profile of the United States Toy Industry, Second Edition. Serious Fun

The toy industry is one of the most consistently misunderstood sectors of American business, comprising a wide range of businesses under one banner-entertainment, commodities, fashion and licensing-that each behave differently. Broad-based change is constant, with more than 40 percent of toy products new each year. The U.S. market comprises about 600 publicly and privately held companies, valued at about $22 billion per year at wholesale for traditional toys, which has remained relatively constant since the 1990s. It is also the only industry where success depends on the whims of a child. This book is a concise and in-depth introduction to the structure, practices, and market forces that impact the toy industry, including a short history, a description of the current market landscape, product trends, emerging opportunities and threats and expectations for the future, as well as aspects of retailing, consumer behavior, and financial markets. While the book's primary focus is the U.S. toy industry, one cannot ignore the global scope of the business, particularly related to manufacturing, growth potential and emerging markets. It is intended to provide a foundation for understanding the diverse and dynamic nature of the toy industry and many things that make it unique and to provide an introduction to this fast-paced, always changing and fiercely competitive business where success is often more an art than a science.

Christopher Byrne A Profile of the United States Toy Industry. Serious Fun

The toy industry is one of the most consistently misunderstood sectors of American business. That's no surprise because on many levels it resists easy definition. It's a commodity business. No, it's a fashion business. No, it's a consumer products business. No, it's an entertainment business. The fact is it's all of these businesses, each of which addresses and responds to market forces differently. And often, especially with the larger, publicly traded companies--all of these businesses share a balance sheet. This book will provide a concise and in-depth introduction to the structure, practices and market forces that impact the toy industry. It will offer a short history of the industry, a description of the current market landscape, major and emerging industry competitors, contemporary trends, changes and expectations for the future. It will further cover aspects of retailing, consumer behavior, and financial markets as they relate to the industry. As noted, the book will focus primarily on the U.S. toy industry, but will provide guidelines for extrapolating the information to the global toy market and a highlight of those issues, such as manufacturing, that are relatively consistent worldwide. The book is intended to provide a foundation for understanding the diverse and changing nature of the toy industry and to help readers develop a context for appreciating it relevant to other, more predictable and definable industries.

Mahipat Ranawat Influence of government policies on industry development. The case of India.s automotive industry

Project Report from the year 2009 in the subject Business economics - Economic Policy, grade: 1.3, Hamburg University of Technology (Technology & Innovation Management), course: Project-work for the Master's in International Production Management program, language: English, abstract: The automotive industry in India has come a long way from its nascent state at the time of India's independence in 1947 to its present day dynamic form. As compared to the production of mere 4,000 vehicles in 1950, the production of the industry crossed the historic landmark of 10 million vehicles in 2006. Today, the industry produces a wide range of automobiles and auto-components catering to both the domestic as well as foreign markets. The development of the industry has been shaped by the demand on the one hand and the government interventions on the other; the influence of the latter being considerable.The evolution of India's automotive industry is identified to have occurred in four phases. In the first (1947-1965) and second phase (1966-1979), the important policies identified were related to protection, indigenisation and regulation of the industry. On the one hand, these policies helped India to build an indigenous automotive industry, while on the other it led to unsatisfactory industry performance. In the third phase (1980-1990), the single most important policy identified was the one with regard to relaxation in the means of technology acquisition. The foreign competi...

Nils Nörmann Performance Measurement for the Purposes of R.D in the Car Manufacturing Industry

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Controlling, grade: 1,7, Technical University of Braunschweig (Institut für Controlling und Unternehmensführung), course: Performance Measurement, language: English, abstract: Encouraged by an increasing globalization, the car manufacturing industry expanded to growing markets such as China, which is with about a demand of 19.3 million vehicles in 2013 the biggest market in the world. Due to the different habits of customers' worldwide and changing laws there is a high demand for innovations of alternative fuel vehicles, lightweight materials and connectivity. In order to provide alternative mobility concepts, efficient and comprehensive technology, the European car manufacturing industry invested over 32 billion Euros into Research and Development (R&D) in 2012. This investment is around 25% of the total R&D spending in the European Union. These investments demonstrate the importance of developing new products in the car manufacturing industry to obtain a competitive position in the global market. To ensure the profitability of developing projects it is important to keep balance between creativity during the innovation process and costs. Controlling helps the management to keep this balance and to measure the performance of new development projects. Therefore, performance measurement can be used.

Christian Schmitt Marketing aspects of the brewing industry

Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich BWL - Marketing, Unternehmenskommunikation, CRM, Marktforschung, Social Media, Note: 1,3, University of Florida, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Anheuser-Busch has to rethink its current strategy and to focus on its core competence: brewing and marketing of beer. A strategic realignment acquires a disinvestment in the business units with low strategic fit, e.g. the theme park or the agriculture division. The integration strategy has to be ended. The money tied up there and additional funds by investors have to be used to acquire other breweries, especially in the emerging markets. At the same time, Anheuser-Busch should increase its interest in Grupo Modelo, to counteract demographic changes in its home market, the United States. Moreover, the brewery has to invest heavily in research and development, a key element for future success in the brewing industry. New beer and beer-mixed categories offer an opportunity for high profits, as new consumers feel attracted by these products. Besides all these changes, Anheuser-Busch should not take away too much attention from its home market and defend the leading market position. Thereby, the brand is the key element to success in the beer industry. Anheuser-Busch has to assure that it obtains the current brand reputation. The same applies to possible new acquisitions. The brewing business is quite a lucrative industry for macro-breweries like Anheuser-Busch. The overall pressure caused by th...

Torsten Hoffmann China - Opportunities for International Media Businesses. Giving Historical Context, Media Import and Export

"The presence of television is influencing the future of China in ways that no other technology or human agency can" (J. Lull). Given its' importance, both culturally and politically, the television industry is one of the most interesting industries in China. However, a quick review of regulations and market realities showed that there are virtually no foreign channels in the country and probably won't be for a while; therefore the focus of this report is foreign television content entering China - and, to a slightly lesser degree, Chinese content in global markets. All video genres are discussed here, with news and current affairs programming being a special case. The first part of this report is a short introduction that includes the history of political influence and a review of existing regulations. After this overview, the industry and major players (namely CCTV, Xinhua, News Corp, Phoenix, Disney, Discovery, Viacom) are introduced and analyzed. Here, the issue of cultural imperialism, or Western media influence, is elaborated on. Then, the paper discusses the opportunities for international firms in the Chinese media market and the tension between Government control and market liberalisation. A compelling answer to the question of who will dominate the domestic market in ten years is developed. Finally, the impact of Chinese content on international markets will be assessed within the same timeframe. This is particularly interesting as media is not a tra...

Oliver Schlösser Analysis of the divergence between theory and practice

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: This management report identifies and analyses the major inefficiencies in the altering strategies of Covisint® – the former proclaimed biggest electronic B2B-marketplace in the world – from its inauguration until the present day. Covisint® was founded by a consortium of automotive OEMs, i.e. General Motors, Ford Motor Company, and DaimlerChrysler in the beginning of 2000. This electronic B2B-platform represented the intention to establish an industry-wide standard that every automotive company should be forced to use if it wants to generate business in future. Moreover, Covisint® represented the ambitious vision of the „Big Three” to put their automotive supply chains on the Internet in order to improve their process efficiency in various ways. At that point of time many writers already called Covisint® „the third revolution in the automotive industry” (Industrial-IT 2000, p. 13). As this chosen prominent example will show, many managerial failures have been made causing the marketplace’s continuous low performance. The management report mainly is based on 34 interviews conducted with automotive industry managers and experts from spring until autumn 2003. The extensive empirical research should allow obtaining an up-to-date and profound view of the interrelated inefficiencies in Covisint®’s strategies. The crucial issues on every of the detected three major strategies as standardised electronic B2B-marketplace for the global automotive industry (1. st...

Sudip Chattopadhyaya The problems of the european union film industry

Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Film und Fernsehen, Universidade dos Açores, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: The market share of Gross Box Office (GBO) of European films have been experiencing a steady fall in recent years while the Hollywood films continue to claim more than 60% of market share within Europe. Every country of EU has devised public aid mechanism in the form of subsidies and tax concessions to protect the domestic film industry with a view to augment national film's market share against Hollywood's domination. Though the state interventions on the ground of cultural protectionism have been the integral part of EU's policy to protect the domestic film industry and to uphold its cultural sovereignty, the effectiveness of the economic policies needs to be investigated to ascertain whether these policies are boosting European film industry or wasting public money.Hence, to assess the impact of the economic policies on the domestic film market, this study examine the impact of subsidy and tax concession on the self-sufficiency ratio, defined as the market share of GBO of domestic films, and attempt to identify other determinants namely market size, the number of domestic films produced and the average budget per film that explain the variance of self-sufficiency ratio in a country. Panel data of six years from 2005 to 2010 are used from twenty-seven countries of EU that have their own film industries. The results of OL...

Francoise Simon, Philip Kotler Building Global Biobrands. Taking Biotechnology to Market

From medicine and defense to food and cosmetics, biotechnological breakthroughs are creating huge new global market opportunities as well as unprecedented challenges. Companies from mega-pharmaceuticals to infotech giants and biotech start-ups must radically rethink their business models. In the first book on the business of biotechnology, Françoise Simon and Philip Kotler combine their biotechnology and marketing ex-pertise to show managers how to innovate with bionetworks, win customers with biobrands, and create sustainable advantage worldwide.Simon and Kotler explain in clear nontechnical prose how innovation in the new biosector will be driven by a web of cross-industry collaborations, and in particular by three transforming forces: information technology, consumerism, and systems biology. With timely industry cases, the authors demonstrate that by capitalizing on these forces, companies from Hitachi and Siemens to Amgen and Pfizer could become the biotech leaders of the coming decades.The chapters on building and sustaining biobrands are the centerpiece of this indispensable book. Simon and Kotler present a powerful framework that will enable any manager to redefine and transform traditional models into a new branding paradigm: the global "targeted" model as an alternative to the global "mass market" model. The authors illustrate how each of these models has proven successful in launching such blockbuster drugs as Viagra, Lipitor, Rituxan, and Gleevec.Re...

Viktoria Arnold The development of an international marketing strategy for ZEVIA on the Soft-Drink market in Germany

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 9,2, , language: English, abstract: This thesis represents an in-depth market insight on the German beverage market for the American company Zevia. Considering the theoretical background particularly focusing on the issue of standardization or adaptation of an international marketing strategy, the author suggests in the event of entering the German market to especially adapt 3 out of the 4 marketing mix elements, namely price, promotion and place. Special attention should be drawn to an alteration of Zevia's promotion and price policies. However, the German beverage market constitutes a tough external environment for the realization of a market penetration and awareness creation for Zevia's soft drink. Overall the German market can be described as saturated, diversified and one conferring high bargaining power to supermarkets. All these factors represent an obstacle for Zevia to enter this market, despite the German food and beverage industry being highly receptive to new and innovative products. This openness derives from the trend detected in Germany (and globally) towards the increased request for health and wellness products. However apparently despite this trend the German market for low calorie lemonades is declining and the perception of stevia as a sweetener is rather negative. These facts have also been proven i...

Jan Schimmel Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: The securitisation of loans, backed by mortgage liens, has an impressive tradition. The technique was established 234 years ago, in line with the development of the German „Pfandbrief”. Compared to Germany, the US market has dealt with the securitisation of mortgage loans and the issuance of Mortgage-Backed Securities (MBS) since the 1970´s. Based on the success of MBS, non-mortgage assets were used for securitisation purposes, resulting in a market for Asset-Backed Securities (ABS). In 2003, the US market issued a total volume of 494 $ billion Asset-Backed Securities, whereas the amount of European issuances increased from 80 € billion in 2000 to approximately 190 € billion in 2003. Today, the US securitisation market accounts for 80% of the global ABS market, whereas Europe has a global market share of 10%. Within the European market, the United Kingdom is the biggest player, generating a market share of 41%. Germany, as being the largest European provider of corporate, retail and building loans, remains with a global market share of 1% and a European market share of 3%, far below its possibilities. Even though the underlying survey shows that 71% of the interviewed companies believe in a subordinated role of Commercial Mortgage-Backed Securities (CMBS) , the relevance of MBS for the European market is underlined by a differentiation of ABS asset classes. MBS, divided into Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities (RMBS), with a market share of 59%, and...

I find support for the notion that initial returns and analysts' forecast accuracy are negatively related. I find that analysts' forecasts were by no means accurate.

Michael Watford Client and Supplier Relationship Factors in Logistics and Supply Chain in the Indian Entertainment Industry

Scholarly Research Paper from the year 2013 in the subject Business economics - Operations Research, grade: B, Stanford University, language: English, abstract: Event management industry is an industry of glamour, hype, and spot lights. While this is the façade of this industry, the backstage of this industry is very different and highly unorganized as is evident in this report. While Price Waterhouse Coopers along with FICCI was one among the first ones to make a report and call this a sunrise industry, others like Ernest &Young (E&Y) and McKinney's have followed the trend. Other than very brief mentions here and there, even at policy levels, this industry does not seem to have attracted that it duly requires nor has it attracted investments of serious magnitude. The supply chain of this industry is intensely temporary in nature as the business is seriously intermittent. This document goes on to explore variety of events and vendors as also naming relationship between the client and vendors, power of client over a vendor, and lack of established customer satisfaction methodologies as key factors which influence the relationship between the vendors and clients in this industry.

Digital banking offers banks new opportunities and challenges. This paper gives a comprehension of how demographic characteristics, social components and consumer perception and attitudes towards digital banking influence its adoption. Digital banking has been developed in order to enable consumers to gain a greater share in the banking market. In Mauritius, there is little awareness about the emergence of digital banking despite the fact that this service is presently representing an important share in the banking market. This is because digital banking is a new industry here, and therefore, consumer acceptance and use of digital banking is still limited. To date, very little research has been conducted into factors which influence consumer adoption of digital banking in Mauritius, and so, therefore, there is a need for a study such as this.A research framework in light of the diffusion of innovation theory was utilized to identify elements that would impact the adoption of digital banking.

Detailed, actionable guidance for expanding your revenue in the face of a new virtual market Written by industry authority Charles H.
