Ursprünglich stammt der Begriff „Portfolio“ aus dem Bereich des Bankwesens und bedeutet dabei ein Bündel von Investitionen. Die Grundlage der heutigen Portfolio-Planung stammt aus der Finanzwirtschaft und wurde von Harry M. Markowitz (US-amerikanischer Ökonom, Nobelpreisträger) im Jahre 1952 mit seiner „Portfolio Selection Theory“ geschaffen.
Außerdem/In einem zweiten Zusammenhang wird „Portfolio“ in der Unternehmensplanung verwendet. Hierbei handelt es sich um die Portfolioplanung, ein allgemeines Instrument der Strategischen Planung eines Unternehmens, das dazu dient die Ziele eines Unternehmens bestmöglich zu erfüllen. Bei der Portfolioplanung gibt es mehrere klassische Ansätze. Die wichtigsten sind dabei zum einen die Matrix der Bosten Consulting Group, auch Boston-I-Portfolio genannt und der McKinsey&Company Ansatz, bekannt unter dem Namen Marktattraktivitäts-/Geschäftsfeldstärken-Portfolio. Neben diesen beiden wichtigsten gibt es noch viele weitere Ansätze die auch wie die Beratungsgesellschaften „auf den Absatzmarkt des Unternehmens abstellen und lediglich die externe und interne Dimension des Portfolios anhand anderer Kriterien bestimmen.“ (S. 480, H. Hungenberg, Strategisches Management in Unternehmen). Hierbei könnte man beispielsweise die Produktlebenszyklus-/Wettbewerbspositions-Portfolio Methode nach Arthur D. Little erwähnen.
Bei der Anwendung des Portfolio-Konzeptes auf die strategische Unternehmensplanung ist es zunächst wichtig, das Gesamtunternehmen in verschiedene Tätigkeitsfelder zu unterteilen. Diese Unterteilung ermöglicht, dass die einzelnen Unternehmensbereiche aus einer externen sowie einer internen Dimension betrachtet und bewertet werden können.
Um dieses Konzept graphisch darzustellen wird häufig eine Matrix verwendet, bei der die externe Dimension auf der horizontalen Achse positioniert ist und die Kundenbeliebtheit außerhalb des…...

...Robert Kurtz IOM 483 W/M Noon March 6th, 2013 Henkel Henkel Iberica (Question #4) What does an Everyday Low Price (EDLP) strategy mean? What are the costs and benefits of this strategy? An Everyday Low Price strategy is a retail strategy that will consistently have low prices without the need for sales or promotions. One of the best examples of this pricing strategy is Wal-Mart, and it is even in their minimal advertising campaigns. Some of the benefits of EDLP are that it can reduce variability in sales for the year. Consumers are no longer waiting for a sales promotion to be advertised. Another benefit that it produces is how it greatly lowers the advertising costs for a company. If a company is known as having an EDLP strategy, minimal advertising is required to increase or maintain sales. Similar to less advertising, implementing an EDLP can indirectly lower labor costs. There is less need for employees to make new signage on a daily basis due to the lack of price changes. Another benefit, as mentioned in the Henkel case, is that manufactures reap some benefits as well by not having to change the packaging that the product is shipped in. One of the problems in the Henkel case was that due to the vast amount of promotions offered, they were constantly changing container graphics, or content size, which increased packaging costs. One could also argue that it can, in some cases, increase consumer loyalty to a store because the consumer will have......

Henkel Group

...1. Einleitung Diese Fallstudie hat das Ziel, das Geschäftsportfolio der Henkel-Gruppe zu illustrieren. Auf der historischen Entwicklung der Henkel-Gruppe aufbauend, werden die unterschiedlichen Geschäftsfelder der Gruppe kurz vorgestellt sowie deren Bedeutung für den Konzern aufgezeigt. 2. Vorstellung der Henkel-Gruppe 2.1 Historische Entwicklung Den Grundstein der Henkel-Gruppe bildet die im September 1876 in Aachen von Fritz Henkel und zwei weiteren Kaufleuten gegründete „Universalwaschmittelfabrik“ Henkel & Cie. Bereits 1878 verlegte Fritz Henkel seine Firma nach Düsseldorf, wo heute noch der Sitz des Konzerns ist. Ab 1907 eroberte Henkel & Cie mit dem „selbsttätigen“ Waschmittel Persil die unangefochtene Führung auf dem deutschen Waschmittelmarkt. Der Erfolg von Persil ließ die Mitarbeiterzahl von 494 im Jahre 1909 auf 1799 im Jahre 1918 ansteigen und prägte das Unternehmen insgesamt als Markenartikelhersteller. In den ersten Jahrzehnten seines Bestehens wurde das Unternehmen durch die Entwicklung der Geschäfte im Deutschen Reich dominiert, wobei Fritz Henkel frühzeitig die Chancen und die Bedeutung einer länderübergreifenden Geschäftsausweitung erkannte. Von Beginn an (1878) verkaufte Henkel seine Waschmittel im Ausland, was auf der einen Seite durch firmeneigene Außendienstmitarbeiter erfolgte. Auf der anderen Seite schloss Firmengründer Henkel Verträge mit ausländischen Firmen ab, die die Erzeugnisse aus Düsseldorf importierten und auf den......

...Case Henkel Ibérica (A) The case tells about the big conglomerate Henkel KgaA and its challenges in highly competed business area, the fast moving consumer goods (FMCG). Henkel Spain, the Spanish subsidiary of the German company Henkel KgaA, has noticed that the skyrocketing level of sales promotions and the complexity of the laundry detergent portfolio have seriously taxed their sales, production, and distibution systems. Stock keeping units (SKU) have almost tripled in five years because of new product launches, brand variations, and special product packaging. Now Esteban Garriga, customer service director at Henkel Iberica, is questioning whether Collaborative Planning, Forecasting, and Replenishment (CPFR) would help manage retail promotions and limit their impact on the stock-outs and obsolete inventory. Many in the organization also believe that the company should abandon or cut back promotions and adopt an everyday low pricing strategy. Henkel uses special promotions, instead of straight price promotions, such as more product for the same price, specially bundled products, and coupons or free items attached to the package. These promotions are retailer-specific, therefore there is a need for a wide variations of different kind of packagings. The product offerings have become more complex and Henkel and retailers find it more difficult to develop an accurate sales forecast and demand planning systems, which lead to higher levels of obsolete and out-of stock......

...however, it is unheard in the U.S. market. A strong European company named Henkel owns it, which is based in Germany. P&G has restructured its organizations as global brand categories, while Henkel has marketed several local brands to accommodate cultural differences in European region. So, Henkel must create a plan to standardize globally and adapt globally to get success in U.S. market. I. PESTEL Analysis: A. Political and Legal factor: Each country in Europe has its own independent and separate economic data, however the whole European countries are viewed as a “unique economic and political partnership between 27 European countries that together cover much of the continent.” Furthermore, each countries have their own currency, yet one currency, the Euro, has been adopted in whole Europe and the trade between all of these countries have been made very flexible. All of these rules and regulations are made by EU(Europe Union). Moreover, “the EU has established common institutions - the Council (which represents national governments), the European Parliament (which represents the people), and the European Commission (an independent body that represents the collective European interest) – to democratically legislate specific matters of joint interest to participating countries at a European level” . U.S. is the free market, and it is not that hard for already well-established companies like Henkel, to deal with political and legal maters in U.S. B. The Economy: The......

...their own brand. The three major leaders, which are P&G, Henkel and Unilever, are keeping their leading position (respectively 27.2%, 20.7%, and 20.3% volume share in June 2011) and the other brands are fighting at the bottom of the graph. However since last year a new competitor is emerging in the laundry industry. As the first graph shows, Henkel is the challenger that have win market share, in December 2010, Henkel have increase his volume to 24.3% rivalling with P&G (26%) and leaving Unilever (17.7). How can we understand the rise of Henkel last year? We will try to explain this main change by comparing data from value share related to the distribution laundry in France. On graph 1 (figure 1), we can find the laundry market represented by curves. In the past (until 2010) the laundry market was largely dominated by our brand P&G, but during the past year (June 2010 to June 2011), the volume of sales has undergone an earthquake. By analysing this graph we can find an emerging challenger to P&G, which is Henkel. On the second wave we can see a conglomerate of minor challengers that are Colgate, NLN, Reckitt Benckiser and other companies. It is always interesting to compare volume with the value share: in the second graph (figure 2), we are staying the leader with a value share view between 31% (June 2010) and 32.7% (June 2011), but concerning our challenger we can easily identify the rise of Henkel against Unilever. It is interesting to understand that......
