1. What is meant by the globalization of human capital? Is this inevitable as firms increase their global operations?
The globalization of human capital refers to the fact that employees are now being spread out across world by their employers. With them they take their manual skilled labor, knowledge, experiences and beliefs. As more and more companies expand and become global companies it is inevitable that they will send good qualified workers to oversee the operations overseas
2. How does this case illustrate the threats and opportunities facing global companies in developing their strategies?
The threat facing Apple was the negative image it had after President Obama’s inquiry on outsourced jobs. This gave the perception that Apple did not care about their customers or their country. It also gives the perception of greed which a global company can face. The opportunity for Apple was being able to produce their product at a lower cost and making more profit. The break down in the case study was that it cost a total of $179 to produce an IPhone and it retailed at $500 leaving a profit of $321. This would mean more profit for the global company
3. Comment on the Apple executive’s assertion that the company’s only obligation is making the best product possible: “We don’t have an obligation to solve America’s problems.”
Although, it seems harsh and cruel I agree with this statement. He is an executive and represents his firm. Since this is a for-profit business that produces goods, his main concern is to make the best product for his consumers and the most profit he can. In order to do so, his company must develop quality products at lower cost. If on the other hand, Apple were a political company and or a non-profit organization then he would have an obligation to some extent.

...Name: Ahmed Essam ElSharaawy Intel Case Study Marketing Management Question 1) Intel had a hard time convincing consumers to pay more for its high performance products. As a result, Intel created quintessential ingredient-branding marketing campaign and made history. The company then chose a name for its latest microprocessor introduction that could be trademarked, Pentium, and launched the “Intel Inside” campaign to build brand awareness of its whole family of microprocessors. Fortunately, the campaign helped move the brand name outside the PC and into the minds of consumers, computer manufacturers who used Intel inside their PC were encouraged to use Intel because it gave them significant rebates when they included the Intel inside sticker on their PCs, Other ways were adapted just to create brand identity. The name "Intel Inside" became the first trademark in the electrical component industry. This campaign focused the entire organization around the brand and created a highly effective advertising campaign. The Intel Inside campaign aimed to "educate both the retail sales associates and the consumers about the value of Intel microprocessors, and to explain to them the differences between the microprocessors" Question 2) Changing is always good, because it provides a sense of innovation in the mind of the consumer, it’s maybe hard to position and di it right, but for an experienced company like Intel, it will not be hard definitely.

...This case study is an excellent example of how different types of parties can be brought together in a large scale transaction and how the original energy of those early meetings can be lost over time. I imagine that when Anthony Athanas was purchasing those old piers back in the 1960s many, if not all, of his colleagues, friends, and family members told him that he was off his rocker. I’m sure Athanas was looking at this land as his family’s ticket to financial prosperity and somewhat of a legacy that he could leave to his descendants for years and years to come. One of the items I wish the case would have divulged is the amount of money that Athanas had invested in the properties. For me this information would have given an insight to his net worth and how much he had riding on this investment. I assume it was substantial given his actions later in the process. Twenty years later Athanas’ dreams came true and all those naysayers were more than likely green with envy. The amount of pride Athanas’ had in his investment at that moment had to have been insurmountable. Being approached by a big time real estate development company and their extremely wealthy client, Hyatt Corporation, must have made Athanas feel larger than life and made him feel like something he isn’t, which is a developer himself. The case doesn’t give much insight into whether Athanas had any representation or anyone consulting him throughout the process. From the beginning, I saw this as matchup...

...Germany she turned again to Latin America. She found that the Cartoon Network and Fox Kids Network had already launched in Latin America. Swan felt that now was the time to enter before the market was saturated. During the three years Swan spent with Nickelodeon International she had studied entry strategies for ten countries, but Latin America was her favorite. Viacom, the owner of Nickelodeon, needed to see a proven business plan from Swan to be convinced to enter the Latin America market. MTV Latin America was struggling and Viacom did not want to invest unless there were strong indicators that it would succeed. Swan had to build the channel knowing she could lose funding at any time. She had to get distributors to give her time slots even though the channel did not exist. To save money, Swan shared infrastructure staff with MTV Latin America in Miami. She would not be able to hire anyone new without approval with the exception of her swat team. Swan was worried that the staff at MTV was used to a very different brand and would have trouble with the kid’s channel. Managing this new team was difficult. Selling the channel was difficult because Swan could not compromise on the price or quality, but many distributors had a monopoly and negotiations were challenging. The number of cable channels was increasing, there was a lack of accurate market data, and only 10% of the population had cable. This made selling to advertisers difficult. The team decided to launch......

...MKTG 4370 14 September 2015 Case 2: Atomic Company Atomic Company is a small company dealing with manufacturing and selling men’s casual and leisure wear. Atomic originally manufactured textiles within the Unites States and Taiwan, but not has shifted to producing their clothing in China through contractors. Throughout the year of 2001, sales figures had drastically increased due to one product line, Tiger Pants. The increase of sales of Tiger Pants can be directly linked to the rise of a new band, Punk Rock Academy, was seen wearing them on MTV. With the increase of product sales there was also an increase in product selling cost through bonus clothes programs. The bonus clothes programs rewarded stores by increasing their sales ($10,000 in 2000 & $75,000 in 2002), and also gave free clothing to celebrities ($9,000 in 2000 & $35,000 in 2001). These drastic differences in the bonus clothes programs gave rise to other executive managers to question the marketing strategies of the company. One of the major problems Atomic Company is now facing is to forecast their sales for the remainder of 2002. In 2000 they brought in $600,000 in sales, $6,690,000 in 2001, and $5,680,000 in the first 3 weeks of 2002. The company needs an accurate sales forecast not only because expenditure orders are more costly but also because with a firm annual sales figure could get a 20% discount on production. As previously stated the success from the past few quarters can be contributed to......
