Case Studies in Data Analysis Book Excerpt:

This volume is a collection of eight Case Studies in Data Analysis that appeared in various issues of the Canadian Journal of Statistics (OS) over a twelve year period from 1982 to 1993. One follow-up article to Case Study No.4 is also included in the volume. The OS's Section on Case Studies in Data Analysis was initiated by a former editor who wanted to increase the analytical content of the journal. We were asked to become Section Co-Editors and to develop a format for the case studies. Each case study presents analyses of a real data set by two or more analysts or teams of analysts working independently in a simulated consulting context. The section aimed at demonstrating the process of statistical analysis and the possible diversity of approaches and conclusions. For each case study, the Co-Editors found a set of real Canadian data, posed what they thought was an interesting statistical problem, and recruited analysts working in Canada who were willing to tackle it. The published case studies describe the data and the problem, and present and discuss the analysts' solutions. For some case studies, the providers of the data were invited to contribute their own analysis.

Global Strategy Book Excerpt:

There are few industries, if any untouched by global competitive forces. Firms and countries long accustomed to dominance in their respective international markets must now reckon with aggressive and innovative competitors from all corners of the world. As the cross-border flow of people, knowledge, ideas, products, services and management practices accelerates, the notion of home-based advantage is becoming weaker. Unlike their domestic counterparts, firms competing across borders must deal with differences in political, legal, financial, cultural, governance and macroeconomic contexts. These contextual differences shape competition in international strategy and make the study of international strategy more than just a simple extension of classic strategic analysis. Global Strategy deals with the question of how firms can compete in a global environment. Andrew Inkpen and Kannan Ramaswamy examine the issues considered central to the study of strategic management in a global context, such as the nature of global advantage, strategic alliances, competing in emerging markets, international corporate governance, global knowledge management and ethical issues in international business. Much as been written about the relevance of global, regional and domestic strategies to counter competition from overseas and as a means to enter foreign markets. However, lobal Strategy takes a broader view, organizing itself around a set of strategic management issues that arise specifically because a firm is international. While there is obviously some overlap between domestic strategic management and global strategic management, it is Inkpen and Ramaswamy's contention that the differences between domestic and global strategy warrant specific attention. By integrating academic research with practical examples and case studies, they inform students and managers of global business about a diverse set of important strategic issues.

New Developments in the Brewing Industry Book Excerpt:

Institutions and ownership play a central role in the transformation and development of the beer market and brewing industry. Institutions set the external environment of the brewery through both formal requirements and informal acceptance of company operations by the public. On the other hand, owners and managers adapt to these external challenges while following their own strategic agenda. This book explores the implications of this dynamic for the breweries, discussing how changes in institutions have contributed to the restructuring of the industry and the ways in which breweries have responded, including a craft beer revolution with a surge in demand of special flowered hops, a globalization strategy from the macro breweries, outsourcing by contract brewing, and knowledge exchange for small sized breweries. Structured in two parts, with a focus on institutions (Part I) and ownership (Part II) respectively, this book examines the link between institutions and governance in one of the most dynamic and innovative industries.

Master's Thesis from the year 2004 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, grade: 1,7, Vaxjo University (School of Management and Economics), course: Master Programme of Logistics Management, 104 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The thesis on hand is dealing with the rather specific issue of the export business of the German brewery Herforder, which considers to market its product branch "beer-mixtures" in Sweden. Within the thesis, there are presented three possible distribution channel designs, consisting for example of the manufacturer, can-supplier, contract-bottlers, importers and transportation companies. Each channel opportunity is described and the reasons that influence the decision for or against one particular channel are explained. Furthermore, the theoretical background is given, which exemplifies why companies start to consider internationalisation and how they can cope with the related challenges. The exporting issue is observed from a theoretical point of view and supplemented with much information concerning relationships within distribution channels. Two aspects which are very important for international trade are also investigated theoretically. Firstly there is the production aspects of beverages respectively beer and beermixtures including requirements for packaging and the production process itself. And secondly there is the transportation aspect including some information about IT systems. With respect to the target market Herforder aims at, there is one special chapter about the Swedish market, its constraints and its peculiarities in connection with alcohol import. Moreover, the high-sophisticated return system for beverage repositories in Sweden is discussed in this context. In the empiricism potential companies that are suitable to make up the export distribution channel Herforder desires are presented in detail. The empirical part finalises with the setting up of three distribution cha"

Brewing Beer and Pubs Book Excerpt:

The production of beer today occurs within a bifurcated industrial structure. There exists a small number of large, global conglomerates supplying huge volumes of a limited range of beers, and a plethora of small and medium breweries producing a diverse range of beers sold under unique brands. Brewing, Beer and Pubs addresses a range of contemporary issues and challenges in this key sector of the global economy, and includes contributions by research specialists from a variety of countries and disciplines. This book includes the marketing and globalization of the brewing industry, beer excise duties and market concentration, and reflections upon developments in brewing and beer consumption across the world in order to explore the wide-reaching influence of this industry. Alongside these global topics more localised themes are presented such as market integration in the Chinese beer and wine markets, beer and brewing in Africa and South America, and turbulence and change in the UK public house industry, which demonstrate how the consumption of beer in pubs and other social environments make the beer industry integral to local communities and regions worldwide.
