Intensity of Rivalry: Rivalry amongst competitors was pretty intense as can be seen the Indian competition caused IBM to increase their presence in India. However leaders like IBM and Accenture had a wide range of service offerings so competition was only amongst few sectors. Rivalry was to hire the top talent as human capital is the most important thing in the IT sector. This is the reason that attrition rate lead to a rise in pay packages.

...Leeds Metropolitan University 4/30/2012 IFM PLC | Consultancy Report | Financial Analysis and assessing future options for the company | Mohamed Kamara and Iwi Ugiagbe-Green Jens Hagenbeck ID: 33269369 Executive Summary This consultancy report aims at the Board of Directors of IFM Plc a multinational company providing financial services and was being ordered by Finance Director Mrs. Diana Worth. It analyses and evaluates a prospective joint venture between a German subsidiary and EMF Plc, re-domiciling the parent company from France to Monaco and expanding into Asia. The financial analysis showed that a joint venture requires an €2 million investment, which could be funded by the shareholders offering a yield of return of 12%. Using the financial data provided and calculating the weighted average cost of capital and the Net Present Value, a WACC of 10% and a NPV of €2.051 million were the results, proving the worthiness of the investment into the joint venture. Before signing any agreements further research needs to be taken to evaluate non-financial aspects such as opportunity costs and other investments. The second part of the report deals with the re-domiciling of the parent company from France to Monaco. From a business perspective and logical point of view this step makes sense as a lot of business operations are being run in Monaco, but it could still damage the company’s image to move from France just for profit and also shareholders might...

...Sikachenya malundu, a junior consultancy in business and a University of zambia graduate as of 2014, major in maths and geography. My names are Sikachenya Malundu, I was placed at a home of six children with a UKV Charlie Clay. Mr Kalenga, the man of the house- a former minister of agriculture, is a very good man who is more welcoming to his house. Mrs kalenga, an official at the Ministry of Education is such lovely mother with a command. It was such a good time being placed in the Kalenga’s with Charlie. We had good time there with my house mate Charlie especially when it came to eating. They provided us with good food and meals. The main problem we had was the distance from home to the next bus station. We spent each, one hour and thirty minutes, each day walking. Mr Kalenga made sure we had clean water through out. There was a problem with the electricity in the whole country, so we had power shortages each day for eight hours. The family has got a maid who helps out with the house chores, and most of the time she did the cleaning. But we later, after two weeks, decided to start helping out with cleaning plates and pots after having dinner. This was a bit a challenge to Charlie, because I am used to that kind of water. It is just a shame that we didn’t have time to say a physical farewell to Mrs Kalenga as she travelled to Kitwe on the Copperbelt. Our house was one of the nicest host homes as it is situated just next the massive embassy of America in Ibex hills.......

Fueled by what can be termed as a perfect ingredient for any industry - large disposable incomes - the food sector has been witnessing a marked change in consumption patterns, especially in terms of food. An increasing number of international fast food chains rushing to India is because all of them see tremendous potential in for this type of business. The large upwardly mobile population in the urban areas tend to eat out more often or business or for leisure. The various players operating in India are the well-established Indian chains like Nirula's, Haldiram's and multinational companies like McDonalds, Pizza hut, Domino's pizza, etc. In addition to these, apparently some of the best known international food chains are looking at India. Among them are Great American Disaster, The Burger King, Mexican food chain Tacogrill, Move-n-pick, etc. are some of them to name.

...$7-8 million annually nationwide. In addition, the food brokers are to receive a 7% commission on the suggested retail price. Since this is not a nationwide campaign but is only targeted to the Boston area, only 1.2% of the national population, these are adequate amounts. My appraisal of the introductory promotional program is this program does aim to bring awareness to the consumer market of this product, which is necessary in order to produce sales. This is essentially a new, unknown product to the public so it will be needful to introduce it to the consumers. Because Show Circuit dog food is perishable, it would need to distribute coupons making free samples available. I do not know if this is the aim of the coupon campaign that the report talks about, though, since it might be a coupon for cents off. As for the guilt concept that will be promoted, I am not too much in agreement with this. As a former dog owner, even though I loved my German shepherd and did attribute human characteristics to her, in the back of my mind, I was still very much aware that she was a dog and just a regular family pet, not a champion dog show participant. Personally, it would be difficult to make me feel guilty about what I feed my dog, and would prefer a campaign geared towards my sense of pride in my dog rather than feeling guilty about what I feed her. I am also leery about this dog food being in the people freezer section of the frozen food isle and that the promotion is aimed at......
