Cola Wars Continue: Coke and Pepsi in 2006
For more than a century, Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola vied for “throat share” of the world’s beverage market. The most intense battles in the so-called cola wars were fought over the $66 billion carbonated soft drink (CSD) industry in the United States.1 In a “carefully waged competitive struggle” that lasted from 1975 through the mid-1990s, both Coke and Pepsi achieved average annual revenue growth of around 10%, as both U.S. and worldwide CSD consumption rose steadily year after year.2 According to Roger Enrico, former CEO of Pepsi:
The warfare must be perceived as a continuing battle without blood. Without Coke, Pepsi would have a tough time being an original and lively competitor. The more successful they are, the sharper we have to be. If the Coca-Cola company didn’t exist, we’d pray for someone to invent them. And on the other side of the fence, I’m sure the folks at Coke would say that nothing contributes as much to the present-day success of the Coca-Cola company than . . .
Pepsi.3
That cozy relationship began to fray in the late 1990s, however, as U.S. per-capita CSD consumption declined slightly before reaching what appeared to be a plateau. In 2004, the average
American drank a little more than 52 gallons of CSDs per year. At the same time, the two companies experienced their own distinct ups and downs, as Coke suffered several operational setbacks and as
Pepsi charted a new, aggressive course in alternative beverages. Although their paths diverged, however, both companies began to modify their bottling, pricing, and brand strategies.
As the cola wars continued into the 21st century, Coke and Pepsi faced new challenges: Could they boost flagging domestic CSD sales? Would newly popular beverages provide them with new
(and profitable) revenue…...

Fiat Chrysler Merger

...redukálása, nagyobb befolyás a piacon úgymond nagyhatalmi pozíció, új piacra való belépés, mind földrajzi mind piaci szegmens értelmében, esetleg közös marketingtevékenység és persze a hihetetlenül értékes technológiák és fejlesztések megosztása. Az itt leírtakból most már érthetjük, miért van olyan sok kooperáció a gépjárműiparban, hol ott egyáltalán nem kockázatmentes, mint ahogy a DaimlerChryslernél táthattuk. Úgy gondolom, hogy olykor több akadálya is van az együttműködésnek, főleg emberi oldalon, nem egyszerű egy közös vállalati kultúrát létrehozni és tartósan fenntartani, összhangban kell lennie mind a vezetésnek, mind a vállalatoknak, különben könnyen a Daimlerchrysler sorsára jut az együttműködés.

Analysis of Chikankari Industry in Lucknow

...to Dhaka, parts of Pakistan, Hyderabad and Lucknow. In the 1990s this industry shifted from being oligopolistic to a monopolistic one, with many new entrepreneurs entering the market. Today, Chikan embroidery in Lucknow is the biggest artisan cluster of India. It employs about 2.5 lakh artisans. It is an international market for its world known Chikankari work. STRENGTHS AND OPPORTUNITIES: Today, the annual turnover of this industry is ₹600 crore. About 15% of the total fabric production of the country is from Uttar Pradesh. Around 30% of the total artisans in India are employed in Chikankari industry. Also, this industry generates revenue of about US$1.2 billion in the state annually. In 2013-14, U.P.’s GDP contributed to 8.46% of the national GDP (U.P.’s GDP–886,410; India’s–10,472,807). Chikankari contributes to 8.12% of U.P.’s GDP (Annual revenue: $1.2bn). Exports: Direct export of Chikan apparels is estimated at ₹60 crore. Indirect export would be at least ₹200 crore annually, thus the potential for export is very large. Tourism: Tourism can help improve the sales. WEAKNESSES AND THREATS: * Unregulated market: Because of the lack of regulation, most of the women workers are exploited because they are denied minimum wages (Table 1) * Substitutes: Currently, the Chikan industry is facing a tough competition from China, because of machine-made imitations. These imitations have dominated the international market due to low pricing * Poor Branding:......

...Chikankari  Chikan (Hindi: चिकन, Urdu: چکن‬‎) is a traditional embroidery style from Lucknow, India. Literally translated, the word means embroidery. Believed to have been introduced by Nur Jehan, Mughal emperor Jahangir's wife,[1] it is one of Lucknow's most famous textile decoration styles. There are several theories about the origin of Chikankari. Chikankari - the process of chikan - was basically invented in Lucknow. It developed quickly during the period when the Mughals ruled and consisted of styles inspired by Persians. Lucknow grew into an international market for its renowned Chikankari work. There are references to Indian Chikan work as early as 3rd century BC by Megasthenes, who mentioned the use of flowered muslins by Indians. There is also a tale that mentions how a traveler taught Chikankari to a peasant in return of water to drink. However, the Noor Jahan story is the most popular of the lot.[2] The name Chikan has been derived from the Persian word Chakin or Chikeen meaning a cloth wrought with needlework Chikan began as a type of white-on-white (or whitework) embroidery. Chikankari is a delicate and artfully done hand embroidery on a variety of textile fabric like muslin, silk, chiffon, organza, net etc. White thread is embroidered on cool, pastel shades of light muslin and cotton garments. Nowadays chikan embroidery is also done with coloured and silk threads in different colours to meet the recent fashion trends and keep chikankari up-to-date. Lucknow......

Chickans

...Dis is a chikan: The chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus) is a domesticated fowl, a subspecies of the red junglefowl. As one of the most common and widespread domestic animals, with a population of more than 24 billion in 2003,[1] there are more chickens in the world than any other species of bird. Humans keep chickens primarily as a source of food, consuming both their meatand their eggs. The earliest known domestication occurred in Northern China 8,000 BCE determined from archaeological chicken bones.[2]Previously genetic studies have pointed to multiple maternal origins in Southeast, East, and South Asia, but with the cladefound in the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Africa originating in the Indian subcontinent. From India, the domesticated chicken was imported to Lydia in western Asia Minor, and to Greece by the fifth century BC.[3] Fowl had been known in Egypt since the mid-15th century BC, with the "bird that gives birth every day" having come to Egypt from the land between Syria and Shinar, Babylonia, according to the annals of Thutmose III.[4][5][6] n the UK and Ireland adult male chickens over the age of one year are primarily known as cocks, whereas in America, Australia and Canada they are more commonly called roosters. Males less than a year old are cockerels.[7] Castrated roosters are called capons (surgical and chemical castration are now illegal in some parts of the world). Females over a year old are known as hens and younger females......

Chikankari

...Design Study in Local Region Lucknow, in Uttar Pradesh, was and is the center of chikan embroidery, renowned for its timeless grace and its gossamer delicacy, a skill more than 200 years old - exploited, commercial is but not dead. In fact, the craft is alive and struggling to regain some of its former beauty and elegance. Chikan embroidery is done on fine cotton fabric. The garments are first stitched and then embroidered, whereas skirts, saris, and table linen are first embroidered and then finished. A study of the origin of chikan reveals that this form of embroidery had come to India from Persia with Noor Jehan, the queen of the Mughal Emperor Jehangir. The word chikan is a derivative from the Persian word 'chikaan' meaning drapery. Some, however, insist that the craft migrated from Bengal. What we know is that chikankari came to Awadh when Mughal power declined in Bengal and the artisans moved to the Awadh durbars, seeking employment and patronage. The craft flourished under the benign nawabi influence. The ladies of the harem vied with each other in making white embroidered caps for the nawabs in order to be noticed and favoured. Earlier garments were so fragile that they had to be discarded after a few washes --this explains why early samples of chikan garments are not available. With the British influence, designs became more formal and items other than ethnic apparel began to be created. This brought a formalisation of designs to a large extent, which resulted......

...analiza comparativă a diferitelor viziuni asupra acestui concept. Teoriile întreprinderii constituie o arie relativ nouă şi necristalizată a ştiinţelor economice. În cadrul acestor teorii nu există deocamdată un consens privind definiţia întreprinderii economice şi nici o abordare unanimă a clasificării întreprinderilor (Chikán, 2008: 67). Definim în continuare teoriile clasice ale firmei în care organizaţia apare ca o „cutie neagră”, respectiv teoriile moderne ale firmei care abordează întreprinderea ca un sistem complex. În continuare, acest capitol prezintă conceptul de întreprindere economică prin prisma teoriilor clasice şi moderne ale firmei: Întreprinderea în teoria neoclasică În teoria neoclasică întreprinderea este o unitate juridică, care poate fi caracterizată printr-un set de posibilităţi de producţie, dintre care acesta alege urmărind criteriul unic de maximizare a profitului, având acces la toate informaţiile pieţei (încorporate în preţul de pe piaţă al produsului). Întreprinderea apare ca un întreg unitar, o „cutie neagră”, care nu necesită coordonare şi organizare internă, identificându-se în acelaşi timp cu proprietarul şi cu managerul firmei (Chikán, 2008: 67). 12 Întreprinderea în teoria principal-agent Problema principal-agent, formulată în literatura economică la începutul anilor ‘70 de Ross (1973), respectiv de Jensen și Meckling (1976), porneşte de la faptul că, în cazul majorităţii întreprinderilor, nu se îndeplineşte ipoteza teoriei neoclasice......
