Lidl
Customers
Customers are one of Lidl’s stakeholders and they affect them because without them the business wouldn’t be as successful, looking at it from a customer’s point of view they would want the store to sell the products they need and customers buying their products would mean they can think about improving what they already have or try to build more stores around Europe from the profit they receive. If the business keeps receiving a good amount of money from customers buying their products the business will improve and achieve their aims and objective of providing and selling goods to customers.
Employees
Lidl’s employees play a big part in influencing the business; this is because they have a small part with every one of the stakeholders. They encourage customers to buy their products and tell them anything they need to know such as offers, they also help the business grow by advertising the business in the area they are located so people buy their goods. Employees also expect to be in a good and safe working condition to do what they need to do and expect the pay to be reasonable.
Suppliers
For a business as big as Lidl they would need to expect their suppliers to be trustworthy and to deliver the goods they order on time and make sure the goods they deliver are the correct ones. Because Lidl is a food retailer they will always need to make sure these things are sorted and there are no problems because they will end up losing money.
Owners
For the owners of Lidl, they would want their business to stay as one of the best food retailers in Europe and keep improving and increasing the amount of money they make. They would like to see the business meeting their aims, objectives, missions and working towards their visions for the future and also seeing their profit increasing every time. Owners would also want the business they own to be successful…...

Stakeholder

...Part one A stakeholder is any individual or group who can affect or is affected by the actions, decisions, policies, practices, or goals of the organisation (Freeman 1984, 25). They have the interests in the activities of an organization and can be divided into internal and external stakeholders. In addition, there are different levels of stakeholders: primary and secondary. The level of stakeholders depends on the political, economic and social environment. Internal stakeholders are those from within the business, e.g. managers, employees and shareholders. In the Icelandic banks, the internal stakeholders are managers, staff and employees of the Icelandic bank, and there is no doubt that the owners are the most important stakeholders among all of them. The staff and employees get the paid from company directly and do service for them, that is why they are the internal stakeholders. The external stakeholders are such as suppliers, government, financiers which influence and are influenced by organization but are not its ‘internal part’ (business dictionary). The primary stakeholders are 300,000 British citizens and Icesave housing customers like David Pedrick and his wife, even though they just has a little interest in it,domestic creditors are also a part of external stakeholders. The secondary stakeholders are governments, the media, the pressure groups Liberty and the communities where organizations are nearby or located like Kaupthing Singer& Friendlander which is the......

... Stakeholders Role Travis Green MGT 420 Managing Quality in the Supply Chain March 10, 2013 Stakeholders Role Stakeholders are the key assets in an organization because they can either affect or be affected by the way the organization operates. The level that each stakeholder is impacted varies from organizational layoffs to stock prices rising. Not all stakeholders are equal, and for this reason the level in which each stakeholder plays in the quality management process will vary, depending on the degree of involvement. The key relationships for an organization reach far beyond the relationships with its customer base to include relationships with its employees, as well as those with suppliers and partners, investors and even government regulators and other parties that may have any impact on the organizations climate or market that it operates in. A slight change in any of these relationships may cause an upset that can ripple throughout all the other relationships. Therefore, it is imperative for the organization to convince its investors to stay with the organization and keep their shares, employees to cooperate between each other, the organizations customers to purchase more products or services, and their suppliers to maintain a strong, reliable supply chain.

...Identifying and Managing Stakeholders Successful implementation of any organizations project depends mainly on involving the support of the stakeholders. Stakeholders are individuals (customer, patient, sponsors, vendors, and employees) or organizations that have a vested interest in the success of the business (Corporation for National and Community Service, n.d.). Without stakeholders support IT projects can run into many problems that can result in failure (eHealth Initiative (EHI), n.d.). When stakeholders are allowed to have input from the project start, then the project can be implemented more efficiently (EHI, n.d.). There are many different stakeholders with unique role that ensure the organizations project success (Wager, Lee, & Glaser, 2010). Stakeholders Before the initiation of any project, it is critical to identify those individual that will be most impacted by the project (Corporation for National and Community Service, n.d.). There are many stakeholders within a health care organization that must work towards one shared goal (Abbot, 2013). Key stakeholders in a health organization are consumers/patients, providers, clinical managers and senior leadership just to name a few (HRSA, n.d.). It is also important for each stakeholder to know their roles and responsibilities, how the system will affect them, and the benefit offered (HRSA, n.d.).

Stakeholder

...Stakeholders are people or groups of people who can be affected by, and therefore have an interest in, any action by an organization. The stakeholder concept is the view that businesses and their managers have responsibilities to a wide range of groups, not just shareholders. There are two different kinds of stakeholders; Internal & External Internal Stakeholders -These stakeholders are members of the organization: Employees Shareholders (who own the business) Managers and directors of a business External Stakeholders - These stakeholders do NOT form part of the organization but have a direct interest or involvement in the actions of the organization: Customers Suppliers Government Competitors Special interest groups Business decisions can have both negative and positive effects on stakeholders, but it is rare for all stakeholders to be either positively or negatively affected by any one-business activity. It is also possible for any one-stakeholder group to experience both negative and positive effects from the same business decision. This is why conflicts of interest between stakeholder groups with different objectives can arise. Unilever is the world's third largest consumer goods company. Its key stakeholders include: Customers Employees Suppliers Investors Government regulators Local communities Civil society organizations Academics and individual concerned citizens With some, such as our customers, employees, suppliers and......

Pestel Analysis for Lidl

...Student Name : Victor Belinschi Student Number: 10022233 Course Title: MBA in Business Management Lecturer Name: Dr. PJ Paul Module/Subject Title: International Management Assignment Title: PESTEL Analysis Nr. of Words: 3231 (Excluding References) I have chosen to write a PESTEL analysis for LIDL (the food retailer from Europe) in the context of a potential expansion to Moldova, my home country. This particular industry was chosen because there are no major food retailers in our country besides the Metro Cash & Carry. Therefore, our market is relatively young and with potential to grow. Political Factor The Republic of Moldova is a relatively young country as it gained its independence in 1990 when the USSR had collapsed. From that year on, the Moldavian people have struggled to install democracy. Until 2000 Moldova has been governed by democratic forces and has already achieved some progress in installing a fair and efficient legal system. Unfortunately for many persons, the elections of 2000 have identified the Communist party as the winner. The Communists have governed the country until 2008 when they have lost the elections in favour of the three democratic parties: Liber Party, Liberal-Democratic Party and the Democratic Party. However, the disparity of votes between the opposition and the winning forces was relatively insignificant and in order to have a consolidated majority in the Parliament and to be able to efficiently adopt legislation,......

...World Market Strategies for Drugs to Fight Aids Jérôme Dumoulin, Yves-Antoine Flori, Philippe Vinard, Thomas Borel Key words: AIDS; drugs; price; developing countries. Abstract Faced with a situation where the market is unstable and the political context is crucial, we propose a three-part analysis. In the first part, an overview of the chronology of the main events shows that the evolution of the price of ARVs is interlinked with numerous issues of pharmaceutical patent rights. In the second part, we analyse the positions of stakeholders: how they behave in the market and influence market regulations. In the third part, we propose three scenarios which are both simplified interpretations of stakeholders’ strategies and options for the future. The first scenario is the status quo, where prices are high. The second scenario is driven by multinational companies who work to enlarge the markets by price differentiation and product diversification. The third scenario is driven by International Organisations which achieve a political consensus to enlarge access to ARV drugs through broader international financing and a systematic opening of the market to generics. Résumé Face à une situation de marché instable où le contexte politique est primordial, nous proposons une analyse en trois parties. Dans la première partie une esquisse de la chronologie des événements montre que l’évolution des prix des 214 Economics of A I DS and Access to H I V/A I DS Care… ARV......

Lidl Analysis

...Inledning. Lidl öppnade sin första butik i Tyskland på 70-talet och har växt snabbt sedan dess. Idag Lidl är representerade i över 25 länder med sammanlagt närmare 10 000 butiker. I just Sverige finns det 169 etableringar och mer än 2800 anställda. Företagets ambition är att ha hög kvalitet och produktsäkerhet både på egna märken och varor från andra leverantörer, såsom Arla, Scan och Kronfågel. Lidl utför ett noggrann kvalitetskontroll genom att samarbeta med oberoende kontrollorgan. Lidls vision innebär att kunderna får hög kvalitet till lägsta möjliga pris jämfört med andra livsmedelkedjor. Utifrån detta anses att deras kundgrupp är studenter och pensionärer, alltså folkgrupper som väljer prisvärde fråmför alla andra aspekter.  Lidl också håller på att expandera sin verksamhet i Sverige genom att öppna nya butiker. Lidls grundidé är att man inte ska behöva betala för det man inte köper utan pengarna man blir av med tar man med sig hem i form av de varor man har i påsen då man lämnar butiken. De drar därför ner på mycket utgifter som kunden annars indirekt betalar för exempelvis större utbud av varor och snyggt möblerade butiker. I realiteten lyckades dock inte Lidl att hitta sitt nisch. I 2012 hade dem 3.3% av Sverige marknadsandelar och befinner sig på näst sist position bland andra livsmedelkedjor i landet. Utifrån Lidls egna rapporter samt statistik från andra källor på nätet som t.ex. DN.Ekonomi fick vi veta att de får knappt något vinst från sin verksamhet. Man......

Aldi & Lidl

...Aldi and Lidl: International Expansion: Case study Answer 1 Greenfield Investment strategy is associated with companies expanding its business outside its national borders. Greenfield investment is one such example where the company sets off in an effort to establish its business operations from the scratch. in recent years it is evident that the strategy of these two companies has tilted in favor of the Greenfield investments. There are various factors responsible for both Aldi & Lidl in choosing Greenfield investment as a primary market entry strategy. Some of these factors are as mentioned below:  Degree of freedom: Greenfield investment involves setting up business in the manner as perceived by the investors. They are free to choose their own suppliers, channel of distribution and so this freedom allowed the two companies to change required strategy whenever required in order to adapt to different market conditions in different countries. This strategy involves few rules, regulations, licensing issues that allowed the company to cash in on the brand name, which means ability to attract new customers with relatively low costs.   Resource & efficiency: Since Germany had already been exploited, the companies¶ seeked for ways of acquiring resources at much lower rates. So by choosing this stategy , , would help them to compete in the markets with major supermarkets and hypermarkets as they could drive down the costs of products that would lead to......

...Stakeholders, Shareholders and Wealth Maximization V. Sivarama Krishnan, University of Central Oklahoma ABSTRACT This paper attempts reconciliation between the two somewhat extreme views espoused by the shareholder wealth maximization paradigm and the stakeholder theory. The stakeholder theory challenges the basic premise built into corporate finance theory, teaching and practice. Corporate finance theory, teaching and the typically recommended practice are all built on the premise that the primary goal of a corporation should be shareholder wealth value maximization. Extant theoretical and empirical research in financial economics also generally accept shareholder wealth maximization as the normative and ideal goal on which all business decisions should be based. This paradigm assumes that there are no externalities and all the participants engaged in transactions with the firm are voluntary players competing in free, fair and competitive markets. A very different view is offered by what is loosely called stakeholder theory. The stakeholder theory posits that the focus on shareholders and firm value is misplaced and managers should be concerned with all stakeholders of the firm. The paper attempts to address what is felt as a lack of dialogue between the two camps. INTRODUCTION Corporate finance theory, teaching and the typically recommended practice at least in the US are all built on the premise that the primary goal of a corporation should be the......
