Enterprise Rent-a-Car Case Study

...A case analysis of “Enterprise Rent-A-Car: Measuring Service Quality” A Case Analysis of “Enterprise Rent-A-Car: Measuring Service Quality” I. Statement Of The Problem General: Enterprise’s managers wondered how they could improve the customer-satisfaction-tracking process. Specific: To identify and take action on customer service problems quickly and efficiently. II. Areas of Consideration There are two major factors contributing to the problem. First, although the company is getting a 25% response rate, in which the results indicated a big difference between the best performing and the weakest regions where the business is operating, the survey results were not meaningful enough in giving information. Second, the survey could take up to two months to get the results back, and the company believed it needed a process that would get the customer satisfaction information more quickly, so its branch managers could identify and take action on customer service problems quickly and efficiently. III. Alternative Sources of Action I may suggest a number of other possibilities rather than just mailing survey forms to their customers. Enterprise could put up a survey form in each vehicle so that people experiencing a problem could record/report it while it is still fresh in their minds. And customers could mail these in turn or turn them in whey return the car. I may also suggest that Enterprise employees could hand the customer the...

There are so many industries such as- Jute industry, Ship Building Industry, Medicine industry, Electronics industry, Garments Industry, Poultry Industry etc. As Bangladesh is a over populated country, that is why labor cost in our country is very low. This feature of Bangladesh’s industries attracts so many foreign investor. But several wanted and unwanted industrial dispute has putted this potential sector of Bangladesh at a great risk.

Problem of Performance Appraisal in Bangladesh-a Case Study

... Executive Summary In order to fulfill the Microcredit Summit goal of reaching 100 million of the worlds' poorest families by the year 2005, several measures must be taken to ensure that more resources reach the poorest in cost-effective ways. The mechanism of channeling funds, especially government and donor funds to microcredit institutions through autonomous apex funding organizations can prove to be efficient, quick and cost effective. Therefore, there is a need to credit such microcredit funds (MCFs) at the national level and sub-regional level. MCFs can perform two major functions : financial intermediation and development of sustainable microcredit institutions. The institutional structure of such microcredit funds has to address the legal/ownership issue, governance issue, management issue and autonomy of MCF. The ownership structure should have a judicious mix of state, civil society and private sector. In order to keep the fund free from political interference and bureaucratic tangles, autonomy of the fund must be recognized by the government and all other stakeholders. It must be remembered that autonomy does not come as 'gift from heaven'. It has to be derived from political commitment from the government. This is difficult, but not an impossible task as the case study of PKSF in Bangladesh shows. A major advantage of autonomous microcredit funds is their ability to screen and monitor microcredit programs (MCPs) according to some standard criteria, compared...

Enterprise It at Cisco Case Study

...The problem bothered Cisco a lot in 2001 is an example of company doesn’t do anything about centralized monitoring. The decisions may different with company strategy, which may lead a waste of human resource and money. This case shows the importance of collaborating between all departments in business. After reading this case, bunch of questions jump out of my mind: would I approve the call center project if I were Boston? If yes, what kind of benefits will bring to company? If no, why? Admittedly, call center project was very important and valuable, but so were many others considered by BPOC. So the main questions for approving call center project are: would its benefits are much more than risk? Would it against other projects? Would it also benefit to other functional areas? How much will it cost- the percentage in total IT budget, people and training cost? To answer the question of if I will approve call center project, I need the answers of the questions I mentioned before. However, I can’t get perfect answers for these questions. Besides, the most urgent thing for Cisco now is to upgrade its ERP project. Even though Cisco had ERP system to store all the data, there was no common business logic allowed all the applications to read and interpret the raw data in a consistent manner. So it is more important to upgrade ERP system to capture more and accurate information about the customer. It would be better if Cisco do the ERP upgrade first, and then consider the call......

Case Study Performance Appraisals

...Sonia was in an unfortunate situation regarding her performance appraisal. This situation definitely could have been prevented. First of all time was not given when going through her evaluation. Her supervisor Mrs. McCallister kept putting off her review because she was too busy. Finally she made time for Sonia. With that being said it didn’t allow the necessary conversation between the two to be taken. From what witnesses stated that Sonia came out crying. From what was put in her review she was not performing up to par. This leads me to conclude Mrs. McCallister just gave her critiques on Sonia ending the conversation. I don’t believe Sonia got the time she deserved to really see what she needed to truly improve on. In all honesty, on the accounts of Sonia’s actual performance she got praise. It’s when the supervisor went into a more opinionated appraisal that things turned south. The supervisor also stated that she was happy with the quality and accuracy of her work. So why would the supervisor find it necessary to put in her review that she is excessively on the phone, that it’s interfering with her work and endangering patients. This supervisor clearly didn’t put in the effort to find out what Sonia needs to improve on. Rather she just took cheap shots at Sonia, to have some time of improvement on there. Sonia’s review should have not reflected so heavily on the “attitude” that was given but more on her actual work performance. Sonia has a few options she could do...

Beximco Pharma

... Executive Summary After growing at a robust twenty plus percentage in 2010 and 2011, Bangladesh Pharmaceutical Industry experienced a slower growth in 2012. The market grew by 11.9% in value terms to reach at Tk. 94 billion (IMS: Q4 2012 report). Despite a slower growth in the market, Beximco Pharma managed to achieve desired growth and successfully improve its market share. The country continued to maintain 6% plus GDP growth rate in 2012 as well. The alarming depreciation of Taka against US Dollar that continued throughout 2011 till January 2012 has finally been restrained. Thanks to higher inward remittances, lower payment for import settlements, and moderate growth in export. The local currency appreciated by around 2.5% against US Dollar in 2012. This was somewhat a relief to the predicted risk of significant reduction of gross margin that started brewing in 2011 in the wake of deteriorating value of local currency against US Dollar, high rate of domestic inflation and increase in the interest rates. The liquidity shortage that prevailed throughout 2011 also eased up to some extent in 2012. However, the political crisis that started by end of 2012 centering the upcoming election poses some degree of uncertainty in the overall economic environment of the country and is seen as an impediment to the growth of business. The first quarter of 2013 has already been affected for such instability in the political environment and continues to remain as a risk factor...

Enterprise Case Study

...1. Using an example, explain the difference between management and leadership. The difference between management and leadership is that leadership is the ability to influence and direct people in order to meet the goals of a group. Whereas management is the process through which company resources are used and decisions made in order to meet the objectives of a firm. For example the can with enterprise there can be leadership throughout the company it is not just senior managers it is when somebody takes the initiative to guide the group to meet objectives were as managers are usually above in the company's hierarchy the people that they are managing for example in enterprise that would be the senior managers. 2. Suggest circumstances in which leaders within an organisation might wish to use a autocratic leadership style. An Autocratic management style is when a leader makes a decision alone. The leader does not consult the workforce but instead conveys the decision and the workforce has to follow. This is good in environments when a decision needs to be made quickly this is because when the workforce is not consulted it speeds up the whole process or it would also work in environments where the workforce is low skilled and does not have the knowledge to make these decisions themselves this management style does not work in high skilled environments were the staff can make decisions for themselves as this could lead to an unmotivated workforce. For a highly skilled......
