Mainly, they wanted to stay in business. Birth of the Eight-Step Process Many progressive retailers and manufacturers realized that there was gold in the reams of data available from retail point-of-sale (POS) systems. Was it possible to figure out which products to stock in a certain store?

Could they attract and retain specific niches of high-value shoppers? The answer was yes. The way to do it was a process called category management that was developed in the early 1990s by The Partnering Group (TPG), a consulting firm.

Chong was Jextra Stores (Jextra) country manager for the Neighbourhood Markets Division in Malaysia. One issue involved a conversation with the mayor of Klang, a town near Malaysia’s capital city of Kuala Lumpur. Chong had been seeking to expand to Klang for some time. The mayor surprised Chong with an offer to help with land zoning if Jextra would help finance a new primary school (or at least Chong thought that was what he had been asked for). The second issue involved the job performance of Arif Alam, Jextra’s top-performing buyer. Alam, a buyer of fresh fruit and vegetables, consistently negotiated better contracts than Jextra’s fifteen other buyers and, Chong believed, better than Jextra’s competitors. The contracts negotiated by Alam certainly contributed to the excellent financial performance of Jextra Malaysia. Nevertheless, Chong could not help wondering if there was more to the picture than he was aware of. The retail industry in Malaysia was notorious for buyers accepting money and gifts from suppliers. A few days ago, Chong had accidentally overheard two of his accounting employees speculating that Alam must be accepting gifts, or even taking bribes—how else could he get such good......

...Both magazines categorise their audiences in different ways but a main factor is content. Content on ‘Mens Health’ clearly indicates a male audience; this is done by numerous masculine ways. One of which is the use of image, normally a masculine figure on the magazine, in my specific magazine edition it is a UFC fighter centralised in a fighting pose. This conveys masculinity and appeals to the average man to want to look like and the want to be tougher. This is categorising the audience to people who want to change or improve their body. Terms such as ‘best’ are repeated on the cover, which we can see using Young and Rubicon’s 4C’s table that the category ‘aspirer’ would fit in perfectly for this. A person who wants nothing but the best; this is reinforced immediately with terms such as ‘instant results’ which also apply to that category. The purpose of the magazine is not only to try and get people to buy it, but to believe in what they are selling and that the magazine can change your life physically and mentally. Exaggeration is used in the magazine heavily, with phrases like “Get NASA IQ”, which is absurd to think that...

Three Pigs Deloitte

...1. How should the Company determine whether an inventory impairment exists at September 30, 2002? More specifically, how should management evaluate impairment? The company should not try to evaluate impairment under the lower of cost or market method on a total inventory basis. PIGS must focus on trying to give an understandable and complete view of the company. As there are different category of inventory with different market prices and different cost, PIGS should first determine if there is inventory impairments at September 30, 2002 under lower of cost or market method inventory categories. Farmer Joe could separate its production into two categories: internally developed categories and hogs produced and sold to third parties. In case of a material effect where costs would be unable to recover, investors would like to have the possibility to find impairments. Therefore lower of cost or market method should be applied to individual category as they will be more significant for investors. Given the fact that PIGS has both internal and external production, grouping the category into one inventory could be misleading to investors analyzing financial statement. 2. If the company determines that an impairment of inventory is necessary, should the impairment be recognized in an interim period if prices are expected to recover before year-end? As Farmer Joe believes that the fall in price is due to seasonal fluctuation, he as to report the impairment at an interim......

E Catalog

...is to represent all products in a store in a catalog, either in a print format, or in case of online store, an electronic catalog. To simplify the catalog building process and customer browsing of a catalog, products are often classified into categories where similar products that share common attributes are in one broad category. An example would be footwear, where each product in this category shares some common attributes like size, material, color, gender (male, female, or children), and then can have more specialized sub-categories like sports footwear. Another example would be an appliances category where all have more specialized sub-categories like sports footwear. Products share common attributes as an operating voltage, color, energy consumption, dimensions (height, width and length), and further have some special sub-categories like refrigerators. An online store would be interested with categorizing its products to be able to add new products efficiently, as it would only need to add the new product to its sub-category and specify values for its attributes that were defined in the product subcategory and all the parent categories. Therefore, re-using previously defined attributes for a product category. A typical customer would be interested with selecting a product based on certain attributes, like selecting a stainless steel refrigerator, and then to compare on other attributes like getting...

...subcategory by giving examples of each. These categories are given the acronym STEPPS, which stands for social currency, triggers, emotion, public, practical value, and stories. Berger explains these six categories in depth. It was really interesting to see why people do what they do. While reading these examples, I realized that we go through everyday life trying to make ourselves look good whether it would be the way we dress or changing our personality. Berger allowed his audience to put a name to each category and demonstrated with examples, which made it very clear to understand. I really enjoyed the book because I felt Berger had a great sense of humor. He would link a small quote to each category that really stuck with the reader. I think overall this helped contribute to a better grasp on the information. For the public category, he said, “monkey see, monkey do” which I felt was the perfect description. If people start wearing yellow live strong bracelets, you obviously can’t be the person without one, hence you almost feel obliged to purchase one. What I took away from this book is being able to look at these examples and categories from a business point of view. As a consumer I definitely feel more informed with why things actually do catch on, but as a business student I feel that I now understand how business may be able to use these concepts to increase their efficiency. This book gave me insight on how businesses can use these categories especially in their......
