Case Study: Scheduling a Golf League rusty275 09/18/2011 Chris Lane has requested a schedule for the club’s golf league. The league will consist of 18 couples for a season of 17 weeks. Each couple will golf against every other team one time. The schedule has been set up for Saturdays and Sundays, with 5 games on Saturdays and 4 games on Sundays. Chris has advised that it is possible that one couple might cancel, so a secondary schedule has been created. Schedule A is for the 18 couple league and schedule B is set up for 17. Since schedule B has an uneven number of teams, a false team has been created and each week one team will have that week off from competing.
Schedule A – 18 couple’s league Week | Date | | | | | | | 1 | 9/10/2011 | 1-2 | 3-18 | 4-17 | 5-16 | 6-15 | sat | | 9/11/2011 | 7-14 | 8-13 | 9-12 | 10-11 | | sun | 2 | 9/17/2011 | 11-12 | 10-13 | 9-14 | 8-15 | 7-16 | sat | | 9/18/2011 | 6-17 | 5-18 | 4-12 | 3-1 | | sun | 3 | 9/24/2011 | 11-14 | 12-13 | 1-4 | 5-3 | 6-2 | sat | | 9/25/2011 | 7-18 | 8-17 | 9-16 | 10-15 | | sun | 4 | 10/1/2011 | 13-14 | 12-15 | 11-16 | 10-17 | 9-18 | sat | | 10/2/2011 | 8-2 | 7-3 | 6-4 | 1-5 | | sun | 5 | 10/8/2011 | 10-2 | 9-3 | 8-4 | 7-5 | 1-6 | sat | | 10/9/2011 | 11-18 | 12-17 | 13-16 | 14-15 | | sun | 6 | 10/15/2011 | 15-16 | 14-17 | 13-18 | 12-2 | 11-3 | sat | | 10/16/2011 | 1-7 | 8-6 | 9-5 | 10-4 | | sun | 7 | 10/22/2011 | 16-17 | 1-8 | 9-7 | 10-6 | 11-5 | sat | | 10/23/2011 | 12-4 | 13-3 | 14-2 | 15-18 | | sun | 8 | 10/29/2011 | 15-3 | 14-4 | 13-5 | 12-6 | 11-7 | sat | | 10/30/2011 | 16-2 | 17-18 | 1-9 | 10-8 | | sun | 9 | 11/5/2011 | 16-4 | 17-3 | 18-2 | 1-10 | 11-9 | sat | | 11/6/2011 | 15-5 | 14-6 | 13-7 | 12-8 | | sun | 10 | 11/12/2011 | 12-10 | 13-9 | 14-8 | 15-7 | 16-6 | sat | | 11/13/2011 | 17-5 | 18-4 | 2-3 | 1-11 | | sun | 11 | 11/19/2011 | 1-12 | 13-11 | 14-10 | 15-9 | 16-8 | sat | | 11/20/2011 | 17-7 | 18-6 | 2-5 | 3-4 | | sun | 12 | 11/26/2011 | 17-9 | 18-8 | 2-7 | 3-6 | 4-5 | sat | | 11/27/2011 | 16-10 | 1-13 | 14-12 | 15-11 | | sun | 13 | 12/3/2011 | 4-7 | 5-6 | 1-14 | 15-13 | 16-12 | sat | | 12/4/2011 | 17-11 | 18-10 | 2-9 | 3-8 | | sun | 14 | 12/10/2011 | 2-11 | 3-10 | 4-9 | 5-8 | 6-7 | sat | | 12/11/2011 | 18-12 | 17-13 | 16-14 | 1-15 | | sun | 15 | 12/17/2011 | 3-12 | 2-13 | 18-14 | 17-15 | 1-16 | sat | | 12/18/2011 | 4-11 | 5-10 | 6-9 | 7-8 | | sun | 16 | 1/7/2011 | 8-9 | 7-10 | 6-11 | 5-12 | 4-13 | sat | | 1/8/2011 | 1-17 | 18-16 | 2-15 | 3-14 | | sun | 17 | 1/17/2011 | 9-10 | 1-18 | 2-17 | 3-16 | 4-15 | sat | | 1/18/2011 | 8-11 | 7-12 | 6-13 | 5-14 | | sun | | | | | | | | | Schedule B – 17 couple’s league Week | Date | | | | | | | 1 | 9/10/2011 | 1-2 | 3- bye | 4-17 | 5-16 | 6-15 | sat | | 9/11/2011 | 10-11 | 9-12 | 8-13 | 7-14 | | sun | 2 | 9/17/2011 | 11-12 | 10-13 | 9-14 | 8-15 | 7-16 | sat | | 9/18/2011 | 1-3 | 4-2 | 5- bye | 6-17 | | sun | 3 | 9/24/2011 | 11-14 | 12-13 | 1-4 | 5-3 | 6-2 | sat | | 9/25/2011 | 7- bye | 8-17 | 9-16 | 10-15 | | sun | 4 | 10/1/2011 | 9- bye | 10-17 | 11-16 | 12-15 | 13-14 | sat | | 10/2/2011 | 8-2 | 7-3 | 6-4 | 1-5 | | sun | 5 | 10/8/2011 | 10-2 | 9-3 | 8-4 | 7-5 | 1-6 | sat | | 10/9/2011 | 11- bye | 12-17 | 13-16 | 14-15 | | sun | 6 | 10/15/2011 | 15-16 | 14-17 | 13- bye | 12-2 | 11-3 | sat | | 10/16/2011 | 1-7 | 8-6 | 9-5 | 10-4 | | sun | 7 | 10/22/2011 | 12-4 | 11-5 | 10-6 | 9-7 | 1-8 | sat | | 10/23/2011 | 13-3 | 14-2 | 15- bye | 16-17 | | sun | 8 | 10/29/2011 | 13-5 | 14-4 | 15-3 | 16-2 | 17- bye | sat | | 10/30/2011 | 12-6 | 11-7 | 10-8 | 1-9 | | sun | 9 | 11/5/2011 | 1-10 | 11-9 | 12-8 | 13-7 | 14-6 | sat | | 11/6/2011 | 15-5 | 16-4 | 17-3 | 2- bye | | sun | 10 | 11/12/2011 | 4- bye | 17-5 | 16-6 | 15-7 | 14-8 | sat | | 11/13/2011 | 2-3 | 1-11 | 12-10 | 13-9 | | sun | 11 | 11/19/2011 | 2-3 | 3-4 | 1-12 | 13-11 | 14-10 | sat | | 11/20/2011 | 6- bye | 17-7 | 16-8 | 15-9 | | sun | 12 | 11/26/2011 | 17-9 | 8- bye | 2-7 | 3-6 | 4-5 | sat | | 11/27/2011 | 16-10 | 15-11 | 14-12 | 1-13 | | sun | 13 | 12/3/2011 | 10- bye | 17-11 | 16-12 | 15-13 | 1-14 | sat | | 12/4/2011 | 2-9 | 3-8 | 4-7 | 5-6 | | sun | 14 | 12/10/2011 | 2-11 | 3-10 | 4-9 | 5-8 | 6-7 | sat | | 12/11/2011 | 12- bye | 1-15 | 16-14 | 17-13 | | sun | 15 | 12/17/2011 | 6-9 | 7-8 | 1-16 | 17-15 | 14- bye | sat | | 12/18/2011 | 5-10 | 4-11 | 3-12 | 2-13 | | sun | 16 | 1/7/2011 | 4-13 | 5-12 | 6-11 | 7-10 | 8-9 | sat | | 1/8/2011 | 3-14 | 2-15 | 16- bye | 1-17 | | sun | 17 | 1/17/2011 | 1- bye | 2-17 | 3-16 | 4-15 | 6-13 | sat | | 1/18/2011 | | 9-10 | 8-11 | 7-12 | | sun |

Case Study Philadelphia Phillies

...The Phillies has the second-longest streak of consecutive losing seasons in American professional sports, sixteen straight from 1933 to 1948.The franchise has won two World Series championships (against Kansas City in 1980, Tampa Bay in 2008), and seven National League pennants. Phillies had own five different home stadiums. The most recent one have a fan-friendly design and is part of their complex marketing strategy to increase revenue and happy customers. In 2013 Forbes ranked the Phillies #41team in the World’s most valuable Sports Team. The franchise is estimated to be worth $893 million. But, how does a sport team keep increasing its revenue during bad seasons? The Phillies not only represent a changeable and unpredictable “product/brand” but also compete in a market with many other substitutes that may take away fun attention, support and possible sponsorships. In this case study, we would analyze the team’s market, and its complex segmented target. Marketing concepts would be applied to establish possible solutions to a team which major problem is the fact that they are marketing a team/brand that its owners “Unfortunately can’t promise fans in the stands a win every game.” The Phillies as any other sport team have a major challenge, their own product/brand offered. Marketing and advertising a sport...

Csr in Private Banks

...This study has been conducted among the stakeholders and beneficiaries of these private Bank Limited. An interview has been conducted using structured questionnaires to critically examine the subjective perceptions of the meaning, reasons and various aspects of CSR tasks of in Bangladesh. It has been found out that common people either do not have clear understanding about CSR activities or are not really concerned about the social responsibilities of the corporate organizations. The expected outcome of CSR activities, as has been stated in the memorandum and commitments of the corporate houses, has yet to be achieved.

...AFTER READING THIS CHAPTER, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO: 1 Discuss price elasticity of demand and how it can be applied. 2 Explain the usefulness of the total revenue test for price elasticity of demand. 3 Describe price elasticity of supply and how it can be applied. 4 Apply cross elasticity of demand and income elasticity of demand. 4 Elasticity In this chapter we extend Chapter 3’s discussion of demand and supply by explaining elasticity, an extremely important concept that helps us answer such questions as: Why do buyers of some products (for example, ocean cruises) respond to price increases by substantially reducing their purchases while buyers of other products (say, gasoline) respond by only slightly cutting back their purchases? Why do higher market prices for some products (for example, chicken) cause producers to greatly increase their output while price rises for other products (say, gold) cause only limited increases in output? Why does the demand for some products (for example, books) rise a great deal when household income increases while the demand for other products (say, milk) rises just a little? Elasticity extends our understanding of markets by letting us know the degree to which changes in prices and incomes affect supply and demand. Sometimes the responses are substantial, other times minimal or even nonexistent. But by knowing what to expect, businesses and the government can do a better job in deciding what to produce, how much to charge, and,......
