Boston Beer

...YifengBao Boston Beer Company The Appendix 1 below presents the strategic group model of beer industry. In my perspective, Boston Beer Company fits the position with moderate high price and high percentage of alcohol volume. Since the strategic group model contains the variables of two competitive characteristics which are average price and percentage of alcohol by volume in the industry, the positions that companies locate in the model are suited to tackle competitive pressures. We could conclude that both of the prices and quality are key competitive elements in beer industry. Boston Beer Company follows the combination strategy with low-cost and differentiation strategies. The case introduced that the company invested in efficiency initiatives to lower costs and increase margins during the its development. Facing the competitive environment in the craft brewery industry, the Boston Beer Company has promoted some specializations of their products, which are popular in the industry. The company brews over 50 beer flavors, for example, Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat beer is one of the most popular beers in the company.

Boston Essay

...By 1770 Boston was no longer Winthrop’s ‘city upon a hill’ whose citizenry had a covenant with God. Instead, Boston was the commercial and political epicentre of the Thirteen Colonies, and had been engulfed by a hot atmosphere of colonial discontent at the British, brought about by years of war, taxes and occupation. The discontent boiled over into riot on the evening of 5 March 1770, when Captain Thomas Preston and his seven guards arrived to relieve a Sentinel of his harassers amidst taunts of “you bloody backs, you lobster scoundrels, fire if you dare!” from an ever-swelling crowd of eighty. One of Preston’s men responded to being struck with a weapon by firing into the crowd. The ensuing chaos left five colonists dead, six more injured and the city inflamed. Whilst it is almost certain that Preston didn’t order his men to fire, he would have faded into the mists of history, had his innocence not been later challenged during the American Revolution. Patriots idolised and misconstrued the incident; John Adams claims it laid “the foundation of American independence” from their British tyrants. Their flawed imageries of the so-called ‘Boston Massacre’ reverberated across the Thirteen Colonies, and it’s the idealism they propagated more so than the incident itself which stirred colonists to revolting against the Crown. The odds had never in Preston’s favour that faithful night, indeed it was a mixture of the provocative taunts from the ever-swelling crowd and the darkness......

Boston Massacre

... Boston Massacre | The Rebellion of the American People | By Sarah Burgess, James Kresa, Ryan Flynn, and Nick Zappier | | HIS 101 Prof Sundell HIS 101 Prof Sundell There are many things that are considered for leading to the American Revolution and one idea is that of oppression. Oppression is defined as “unjust or cruel exercise of authority or power” and “something that oppresses especially in being an unjust or excessive exercise of power.” (Merriam-Webster, 2014) Many colonists were dissatisfied with the Townsend Acts, which imposed import taxes, on things such as tea, glass, paper and other products from England. This was adding tension, along with the presence of British troops in the city of Boston. Rebellion was becoming evident among colonists, who felt that the British were making too strong of a presence and trying to have too much control over them. In reference to our first document, “A Monumental Inscription on the Fifth of March,” Isaiah Thomas details his disgust for the release of the murderous behavior of the British soldiers. He shares his feelings how justice may have not been served here by the court appointed judges, but it will be served in Hell. This article shows how many felt how the British were not held responsible for the slaughter deaths of the five colonists and the injuries of others. The colonists felt they had the right to protest the presence of the British troops and the unfair taxes. Thomas expresses the frustration of......

Boston Chicken

...Introduction Boston Chicken is a traditional American success story and a stellar representation of the new economy. Founded in 1989 by Scott Beck, the idea was to franchise restaurants that featured home style rotisserie-cooked chicken at affordable prices. While the actual food offerings were nothing new, the market winning formula for picking real estate, designing stores, organizing franchise operations and analyzing data was nothing short of a breakthrough. Due to an innovative competitive advantage, Boston Chicken sustained a growth rate that drew both lucrative and discerning attention. This report looks to analyze what key factors led to such rapid growth, Boston Chicken’s accounting policies, as well as a comprehensive valuation of the firm that concludes with a recommendation for further action. Critical Success Factors Boston Chicken was a hybrid restaurant that offered affordable, home-style meals with the convenience of fast food. The company can attribute their stellar success to several success factors including their: growth rate, communications infrastructure, diversified product offerings, and operational efficiency. Beginning with growth, by the end of 1994, only 5 years after launch, Boston Chicken was comprised of over 500 stores, a stark comparison to their 34 stores at the end of 1991. The company had experienced an annual growth rate of nearly 500%, which correlates to a new store being built every other day. Such stellar growth translated into......

Managing the Product Portfolio As we have seen every product has a life cycle, that is a period of time for which it appeals to the consumer. Within this life cycle there are five stages.  Introduction.  Growth.  Maturity.  Saturation  Decline. High Market Share - Slow Market Growth—Cash Cows. Here we have a mature market which is growing slowly, new competitors are few and far between. Cash Cows are very profitable products, expenditure on such things as advertising is relatively low, customers know and understand the product, brand value has been established. It is also likely that development costs have already been recouped, increasing profitability further. Firms should aim to have successful products in mature market places, these products are known as cash cows. Examples of such products would be Ford Transit Vans, Kellogg's Corn Flakes, Coca Cola. A More recent example would be the Wii, which has established itself as the games consol for non gamers.

The Boston Celtics

...I decided to evaluate the organizational structure of the Boston Celtics, which is a professional basketball franchise whose team is a member of the NBA. The NBA is a professional basketball league in the United States and Canada that consist of 32 teams. I choose the Boston Celtics because it is one of the most recognizable franchises and logos in all professional sports. With 17 NBA championships, the most of any NBA franchise and unbelievable fan base from all over the world. The average fan that watches the NBA has no idea to the amount of money and organization management that is involved with these organizations and franchises. They are structured very meticulously, where every position is essential to winning, making money, and leaving the fans that spend millions of dollars supporting these franchises entertained, and happy. Winning Championships is not at all about the players on the court that play the game. Yeah they play the game and must out score the other team to win. In reality but it takes a lot of time and hard work buy the people in the front offices that run the franchise to get an organization to that level. Winning Championships is not like a pickup game of basketball you have to hire people in all types of positions. Everything position from a General Manager, to a Head Coach, to a Game Operations Manager. Any Championship organization will tell you that you win Championships as an Organization, not just the player that plays the game. ......

Making a buck at craft brewing has been as easy as falling off a barstool the last few years. So Wall Street is now bellying up for a couple of IPO brewers. They’d better start chugging; the party won’t last long. The intoxicating roundup of offerings began in August when Redhook Brewing, a specialty beermaker started in Seattle by former wine marketer Paul Shipman and Starbucks co-founder Gordan Bowker, tapped the market. The stock was priced at $17, never traded below $24.75 and was recently at $27.25. Again, investors went on a bender last month when Pete’s Brewing Company hit the market. The stock, priced at $18 a share, closed its first day of trading at $25.25 and hasn’t sold below $23.75 yet.

Boston Creamery

...Boston Creamery Case Solution MBA 611 Ryan Grady In 1973, after the installation of a new financial planning and control system at Boston Creamery, the ice cream division showed a favorable operating income variance of $71,700. In developing the profit plan for 1973, division president (and resident moron) Jim Peterson made the first of a series of inexcusable errors in budgeting surrounding the mythical “favorable” condition. He simply used expected results for the preceding year (as obtained in Oct. 1972), giving no consideration to factors like inflation, market growth, and the fact that sales goals should be expected to increase annually in a successful company. Peterson asked Frank Roberts, inept and underhanded VP of sales and marketing, to identify the cause for this seemingly wonderful news at the next management meeting. Roberts has also been instructed to point out the areas deserving of praise and those in need of reform. The report generated by Roberts is as follows. |Roberts' Variance Schedule | | |Favorable Variance Due to Sales | | | |Volume | |$117,700 | | | |Price | |$12,000 |$129,700 | |Unfavorable Variance Due to Operations | | | ......

Boston Mmassacre

...The Boston Massacre The Boston Massacre played a big role during the 1770’s by serving as an anti-British propaganda to enrage citizens and have the responsibility to eventually rise up and start the Revolutionary War. Citizens knew that they had the right to be free, but were growing angry because the British Parliament were raising taxes and placing taxes on them for more things. Without the Boston Massacre tensions leading up to war, and our freedom may not have happened at all. Since 1765, the people of Boston had been heading protests against British taxation: the Stamp Act then the Townshend Act. In 1767, The British Parliament passed the Townshend Act, enraging colonists. Citizens believed that the British didn’t have the right to tax them because they did not elect their representatives in Parliament. Only the Massachusetts Assembly, whose members were elected every year, had the right to levy taxes on its citizens. The Townshend Acts imposed duties on glass, lead, paints, paper and tea imported into the colonies. Townshend hoped the acts would defray imperial expenses in the colonies, but many Americans viewed the taxation as an abuse of power, resulting in the passage of agreements to limit imports from Britain. The East India Company was on the verge of collapse and Parliament hoped to boost the company's bottom line by allowing them to sell tea more cheaply to the colonists. Also, Boston was occupied by British soldiers in October, 1768 to help protect customs...

Boston Creamery

...Boston Creamery 1. The variance analysis schedule that Frank Roberts proposed was not necessarily the best representation of the variances for Boston Creamery. Roberts’ report stated a favorable variance of $71,700 coming mainly from sales volume. He used the revised budgeted operating income and the original budgeted income to come up with the sales volume number. The budget was not detailed as to what accounted for the differences though. That would be the first change to the variance analysis report, provide a clearer depiction of the results. He should show the effect of the changes in market size. The market size variance was actually 117,642 favorable (5,968,366-5,720,329). The suggestions offered by Jim Peterson can be incorporated into the schedule without being too technical. There may be a lot of numbers but the results are far more informative. By also looking at month to month changes to sales and operational costs they would have a better estimate and the figures would be available sooner rather than waiting until the spring of 1973. John Vance’s appendix breaks the profit planning analysis down month by month and he shows the importance of tracking actual results. For example, in January 520,000 gallons of ice cream were actually sold. They based the analysis on the forecast of only 495,000 gallons. The actual revenues for January are $28,875 under the forecast for the actual sales. The earnings statement, which is Exhibit C in the......

The Boston Massacre

...The Boston Massacre happened in March 5, 1770 during the evening. In the Boston Massacre, British soldiers killed five inhabitants and wounded six inhabitants. Captain Thomas Preston was responsible for the British soldiers which killed five inhabitants. Whether Captain Thomas Preston gave the order “fire” or not is a controversial issue. Although there are lots of witnesses who argued they were sure that he gave the order, there were also lots of witnesses who argued they were sure that he was not gave the “fire” order. Although the evidences not give us a certain idea that Captain Thomas Preston was guilty or not, because the evidences are controversial, evidences strongly suggest that he was not guilty, he presumably did not give the order “fire”. During the 1760s and the first days of the 1770s the tension in the Boston was high because of the Stamp Act and the other new taxes which were going to be applied, known as “Townshend Duties”. “… men such as Samuel Adams were encouraging their fellow Bostonians to be even bolder in their remonstrance.”(Wheeler, Becker & Glover, 84). Because of the inhabitant’s uneasy, the British government ordered some regiments of soldiers in Boston. However, bringing soldiers in the Boston did not bring the peace in the Boston; instead it increased the tension which was already ready to increase. The disputes between the soldiers and inhabitants started slowly, but by bid. There was a reaction to the soldiers as well as to the British......

Then later in 1773 the Coercive Acts were put into place allowing British troops to stay in and occupy houses American were already living in. These Acts also came with the closing of the Port of Boston and allowing British soldiers to be tried for crimes back home in Britain. This was an outrage to the Americans, the colonies had to come together to deiced what they were going to do get rid of the British. They eventually knew that they needed to take the British to war so they could finally separate from them. ! On April 19, 1775 the war began in Concord and Lexington where the British tried to sneak up on the Americans and disarm them and capture leaders Sam Adams and John Hancock in the morning hours of the day. From a series of horseback riders like Paul Revere, the word was able to be spread that the British were on there way. After a series of defeats like Bunker Hill, Long Island, and New York. The American battled back in Valley Forge, Saratoga, and Yorktown where they cornered Cornwallis and his troops and made his surrender.
