Zara's use of technology in information & technology is unique from its competitors. Zara employs a unique combination of human and IT intelligence. Managers at the stores and the market survey done by the employees, form the human intelligence while IT intelligence consists of the PDA devices used to send information collected by the managers and other employees carrying the PDAs. This unique hybrid of humans & technology helps in managing the inventories efficiently and quick and efficient link between demand and supply, thus successfully helping in their own doctrine of 'fast fashion'. #Zara #CaseStudy #MBA

Prominent investor Bernie Madoff duped a long list of wealthy and famous clients by operating a sophisticated Ponzi scheme. As client redemptions piled up during the market turmoil of 2008, Madoff was unable to fulfill redemption requests and his $50 billion fraud was exposed. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about this scandal is how long he deceived his investors. Madoff’s Ponzi scheme apparently went on for more than 40 years. By selling his product as a hedge fund in a brokerage wrapper, he created the plausibility of consistent returns and limited any oversight of his wrongdoing. #Madoff #BusinessEthics

The Altman Z Score model, defined as a financial model to predict the likelihood of bankruptcy in a company, was created by Edward I. Altman. Altman was a professor at the Leonard N. Stern School of Business of New York University. His aim at predicting bankruptcy began around the time of the great depression, in response to a sharp rise in the incidence of default. #Finance #FinancialCrisis

The life blood of the organisation are the customers who allows the firm to realise their main goals and objectives to survive in the market and also to make a profit. Their behaviour helps the products to attain a recognition and allow them to last for longer periods. Consumer behaviours keep changing from time to time and the best thing the company could do is to develop strategic ways that make the consumers buy the products may it be old or new. So, customer focused strategy is the only thing which keeps the companies alive and growing in this highly changing competitive market. #Kellogs #CaseStudy #MBA #BusinessStrategy

Retro models seem to be the car industry's hot favorites. BMW came out with the Mini and Volkswagen with the new Beetle. Both were cult cars in their initial run and their new avatars did not do anything less. Fiat also flirted with this trend, by relaunching its 1950's Fiat 500 afresh, half a century down. Through this relaunch, Fiat wants to consolidate its recent recovery - ratcheted up by its Chief Executive Officer, Sergio Marchionne - and work towards an upmarket image. #fiat500 #CaseStudy #MBA #Marketing

Nissan has been successfully competing in the automobile industry through decades, but in the early nineties they reached a critical point with severe losses and debt. The Nissan brand was loosing its value, and a turnover was urgent for the company to survive. Nissan got an alliance opportunity with Renault, which resulted in Carlos Ghosn taking over, as the first non-Japanese Chief Operating Officer in Nissans history. The task at hand for Ghosn was not easy, but he came to Japan with a vital revival plan hoping to succeed. When Carlos Ghosn took over Nissan in 1999, the company was on the brink of disaster, with a staggering $22 billion debt, slumping sales, a declining image, etc. Just one year later, the automaker was profitable once again. By 2001, debt had been whittled down to $4 billion, operating profit was at a record high, and the popularity of the brands new models surpassed all expectations. #nissan   #corporateturnaround   #successstory
