...I don’t want to speak to you. Connect me to your boss in the US,” hissed the American on the phone. The young girl at a Bangalore call centre tried to be as polite as she could. At another call centre, another day, another young girl had a Londoner unleashing himself on her, “Young lady, do you know that because of you Indians we are losing jobs?” The outsourcing backlash is getting ugly. Handling irate callers is the new brief for the young men and women taking calls at these outsourced job centers. Supervisors tell them to be ‘cool’. Avinash Vashistha, managing partner of NEOIT, a leading US-based consultancy firm says, “Companies involved in outsourcing both in the US and India are already getting a lot of hate mail against outsourcing and it is hardly surprising that some people should behave like this on the telephone.” Vashistha says Indian call centres should train their operators how to handle such calls. Examination Paper : Semester II IIBM Institute of Business Management Indeed, the furor raised by the Western media over job losses because of outsourcing has made ordinary citizens there sensitive to the fact that their calls are being taken not from their midst, but in countries such as India and the Philippines. The angry outbursts the operators face border on the racist and sexist, says the manager of a call centre in Hyderabad. But operators and senior executives of call centres refuse to go on record for fear of kicking up a controversy that......

Caselet -Sheena

...SHEENA Sheena had worked for the same Fortune 500 Company for most 15 years. Although the company had gone through some tough times, things were starting to turn around. Customer orders were up, and quality and productivity had improved dramatically from what they had been only a few years earlier due company wide quality improvement program. So, it comes as a real shock to Sheena and about 400 of her co-workers when they were suddenly terminated following the new CEO’s decision to downsize the company. After recovering from the initial shock, Sheena tried to find employment elsewhere. Despite her efforts, after eight months of searching she was no closer to finding a job than the day she started. Her funds were being depleted and she was getting more discouraged. There was one bright spot, though: She was able to bring in a little money by mowing lawns for her neighbors. She got involved quite by chance when she heard one neighbor remark that now that his children were on their own, nobody was around to cut the grass. Almost jokingly, Sheena asked him how much he’d be willing to pay. Soon Sheena was mowing the lawns of five neighbors. Other neighbors wanted her to work on their lawns, but she didn’t feel that she could spare any more time from her job search. However, as the rejection letters began to pile up, Sheena knew she had to make an important decision in her life. On a rainy Tuesday morning, she decided to go into business for herself taking care of...

Compare the following factors; a. life expectancy b. literacy c. average GDP Despite gains it has made on the economic front, the Philippines remained at 114th globally for the 5th straight year in the Human Development Index (HDI) released by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) on Friday, March 15. The HDI is a key indicator of citizens' state of health, education, and income, among others. In the 2013 Human Development Report titled "The Rise of the South: Human Progress in a Diverse World," the UNDP said the Philippines' HDI score has been improving in the past 30 years. But its score -- 0.654 -- is still slightly below the East Asia and the Pacific regional average of 0.683. (A total of 186 countries were covered by the UNDP study.) Some data on the Philippines from the 2013 HDR include the following: * The life expectancy of Filipinos is 69 years old. * The mean years of schooling in the Philippines is 8.9 years while the expected years of schooling is 11.7 years. * The country's Gross National Income per capita level is $3,752 (computed using 2005 purchasing power parity) * The country ranked 77th overall in the Gender Inequality Index, the third lowest rank in the ASEAN. * Around 18.4% of the population lived below $1.25 in the......

Business Caselet

...Capital markets are financial markets for the buying and selling of long-term debt or equity-backed securities. These markets channel the wealth of savers to those who can put it to long-term productive use, such as companies or governments making long-term investments.[1] Financial regulators, such as the UK's Bank of England (BoE) or the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), oversee the capital markets in their jurisdictions to protect investors against fraud, among other duties. Modern capital markets are almost invariably hosted on computer-based electronic trading systems; most can be accessed only by entities within the financial sector or the treasury departments of governments and corporations, but some can be accessed directly by the public.[2] There are many thousands of such systems, most serving only small parts of the overall capital markets. Entities hosting the systems include stock exchanges, investment banks, and government departments. Physically the systems are hosted all over the world, though they tend to be concentrated in financial centres like London, New York, and Hong Kong. Capital markets are defined as markets in which money is provided for periods longer than a year.[3] A key division within the capital markets is between the primary markets and secondary markets. In primary markets, new stock or bond issues are sold to investors, often via a mechanism known as underwriting. The main entities seeking to raise long-term funds on the......

Caselet 1 Case1: Credit Decision - Agarwal Case

...Caselet 1 Case1: Credit Decision - Agarwal Case On August 30, 2006, Agarwal Cast Company Inc., applied for a $200,000 loan from the main office of the National bank of New York. The application was forwarded to the bank's commercial loan department. Gupta, the President and Principal Stockholder of Agarwal cast, applied for the loan in person. He told the loan officer that he had been in business since February 1976, but that he had considerable prior experience in flooring and carpets since he had worked as an individual contractor for the past 20 year. Most of this time, he had worked in Frankfort and Michigan. He finally decided to "work for himself" and he formed the company with Berry Hook, a former co-worker. This information seemed to be consistent with the Dun and Bradstreet report obtained by the bank According to Gupta, the purpose of the loan was to assist him in carrying his receivables until they could be collected. He explained that the flooring business required him to spend considerable cash to purchase materials but his customers would not pay until the job was done. Since he was relatively new in the business, he did not feel that he could compete if he had to require a sizeable deposit or payment in advance. Instead, he could quote for higher profits, if he were willing to wait until completion of the job for payment. To show that his operation was sound, he included a list of customers and projects with his loan application. He also included a list of......

Caselets: Bribery and Extortion in International

...Bribery and Extortion in International Business Case 1. Case 1 (payment to general’s Swiss bank account): Would you make the payment to the general’s Swiss bank account? Why or why not? You should discuss the relevant laws in your answer. I would not make the 2 million dollar payment to the Swiss bank account of the general in charge of the ministry. First, this payment would be in direct violation of U.S. law, the foreign corrupt practices act (FCPA). This law forbids any payment by a company, its employees, or its agents directly or indirectly to a foreign government official or a foreign political party. Providing this payment is a bribe, this practice can lead to large fines and prison time and personally I don’t look good an orange jump suit. Secondly, this is an unethical practice and could damage the reputation of the company. It can also lead to a dysfunctional, inefficient and deleterious company culture within its own walls. From a pure risk based perspective, the risk out ways the reward significantly. The US company should find a “creative” legal approach to setting itself apart and securing this contract. 2. Case 2 (Speaker of the House): Would you hire the Speaker? Why or why not? You should discuss the relevant laws in your answer. I would hire the local law firm with the Harvard trained nationals of this African county. Taking the advice of the other American companies would cause you to violate the FCPA since the House, in that country will......

Bank of Tactical Mini Caselets

...Bank of tactical mini cases and suggested approaches to problems Case Study – Beckett Organics John Beckett enjoys vegetables, so much so that he has given up his full-time job as a lawyer to concentrate on growing and marketing organic vegetables. He started growing vegetables 20 years ago in his back garden and eventually became fully self-sufficient in supplying vegetables for the family. Partly bored with his legal job and tempted by an attractive severance package, John decided he would try to establish his own vegetable supply business. Eighteen months ago he looked around for two fields to lease in which he could grow organic vegetables. Organic products including vegetables, is a growth market in the UK. Growers must adhere to strict guidelines in order to gain organic certification. Increasing awareness of the problems associated with many pesticides and fertilizers, coupled with an increased interest in healthy eating habits and ‘wholesome’ food, has meant that many consumers are now either purchasing or interested in purchasing organic vegetables. This is true not only of household customers, but in addition, many restaurants are using the lure of organic produce to give them a distinctive edge in the market place. All this has meant that many of the larger supermarkets in the UK have begun to stock more and more organic produce from what was a relatively specialized market in the 1990s; the market has grown to where overall organic produce accounts...

Caselet : the Job of the Milkshake

...CASELET : THE JOB OF THE MILKSHAKE 1. Two segments are described here. Identify the points of parity (POPs) and points of difference (PODs) of the milkshake for these two segments Ans. The point of parity (POPs) of the milkshake for the two segments is that they both serves a job or a purpose to each and every customer. They do not only aim to satisfy the customer with their drink but both the milkshake for the two segments aims to understand what job does their milkshake were being hired to. On the other hand, the point of difference (PODs) of the first segment is that the milkshake was considered to be the best product for customers who wants to occupy themselves during long commutes to work and who tries to avoid foods that create crumbs and makes their hands sticky while their driving. Milkshake purchased by these people are thicker and has real chunked fruit which makes it longer to be consumed than usual. This has then just serve the job for this segment. For the second segment, the point of difference (PODs) is that the milkshake is usually bought by parents who at the end of the day wants to appease their children after spending the whole day answering “No” and give them a special treat. Its milkshake is thinner than the first segment, it mostly appeal to a younger audience because it is served in a smaller and entertaining cups and lastly it would only takes them less time to consume it, hence not leaving their parents wait for them for half an hour to......

Corruption in International Business-Caselets

...Corruption in International Business-Caselets 1. McDonald's in China * I think Mcdonal's should not pay the fees. It was subject for 31 fees which do not have any connection with McDonald's and its business. This is the example of petty corupption, where private actors interact with low lever buraucrats. If this was legal, city bureaucrats would not appear to be within discrection to impose the fees. 2. Enterprise Investors in Warsaw, 1990 * I think they should pay the fee if they want to open its Warsaw office at this period of time, because they can not do business without telephones. But I think they should consider other countries as well to see if they can open immediatly without paying HOOKUP FEE. Because this paying is just a loss for their company at very beginning. This is example of petty corruption. 3. Alpha Media in Budapest, 1994 * This is example of petty corupption because if the firm pays $45000 for local accountat which clearly works with local tax inspection he will straighten the firms books. Even though this is corruption, for the firms well beign they should hire the consultat because if inspection goes over books for longer period the company will have to pay more compliance fines.. So, he will be good for this period and also he will be good for the firms future too. 4.

...COMPANY BACKGROUND The Bronson Insurance Group was originally founded in 1900 in Auxvasse, Missouri, by James Bronson. The Bronson Group owns a variety of companies that underwrite personal and commercial insurance policies. Annual sales of the Bronson Group are $100 million. In recent years, the company has suffered operating losses. In 1990, the company was heavily invested in computer hardware and software. One of the problems the Bronson Group faced (as well as many insurance companies) was a conflict between established manual procedures and the relatively recent (within the past 20 years) introduction of computer equipment. This conflict was illustrated by the fact that much information was captured on computer but paper files were still kept for practical and legal reasons. FILE CLERKS The file department employed 20 file clerks who pulled files from stacks, refilled used files, and delivered files to various departments including commercial lines, personal lines, and claims. Once a file clerk received the file. Clerks delivered files to underwriters on an hourly basis throughout the day. The average file clerk was paid $8,300 per year. One special file clerk was used full time to search for requested files that another file clerk had not been able to find in the expected place. It was estimated that 40 percent of the requested files were these “no hit” files requiring a search. Often these “no hit” files were eventually found stacked in the requester’s...
