PROBLEM RECOMMENDATION PLAN OF ACTION and
A. Soriano Company BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

In the early 1980s the San Miguel Corporation (SMC) and A. Soriano Corporation (ANSCOR)Group of Companies, under the leadership of Andres Soriano, Jr. addressed a long felt need for an effective formal planning system for the two companies.

According to Soriano, the companies had developed their budgeting and long-ranged planning systems several years earlier but, despite the many advantages these gave them they still were not satisfied with their ability to respond to the rapid changes in the environment around them. Therefore, they search for a process that would enable them to upgrade their planning capability.

In November 1982, Dr. Lorange addressed a joint dinner-meeting of SMC and ANSCOR Group and shares his insights on the implementation of the strategic planning of the two companies. 1982. The time of Marcos regime. In which the control of the ownership has been turned political. Rapid changes to environment merely occurred. TIME FRAME The two companies experienced difficulty in their implementation phase and three problems occurred:

the planning process is much time consuming which involved more work than one might reasonably expect of people;

the two companies emphasized in developing the objectives and strategic programs led to past strategies outweighing the new strategies;

there were some Business Family and Element Teams who were asking for "hand-holding" to guide to the process. 1.Examine loopholes in the planning process.

2.Develop a strategy for an efficient planning process. 3.Study pros and cons of the involvement of past strategies in developing the objectives and strategic program. 4.Determine the effects of having no planning manual or “hand-holding”. 5.Decide on the need for developing a planning manual for the planning process. ALTERNATIVES COURSES OF ACTION 1. Constitute a more active team of managers in the planning process, develop new strategies based on the past, and provide planning manuals to all Business Family and Element Teams. 2. Formalize a decision team, formulate all-new strategies, and resist giving plan manuals.

3. No allocation of human resources or cross fertilization and independence in family and element team’s management decisions. Background Study 1.Constitute a more active team of managers in the planning process, develop new strategies based on the past, and provide planning manuals to all Business Family and Element Teams. ADVANTAGES: a.The capabilities and skills of the personnel will be evaluated.
b.The performance efficiency and effectiveness of the personnel will be determined
c.Plans are materialized and initiated at a small time frame
d.Loopholes within the organizational strategy, goals, and mission will be resolved DISADVANTAGES a.The provision of manuals to all managers is very costly
b.Inefficiency and ineffectiveness caused by the old strategies may be carried over to the new strategies
c.Conflict of perception between the managers and the bosses
d.Optimizing the capabilities and skills of the personnel may be time consuming 2. Formalize a decision team, formulate all-new strategies, and resist giving plan manuals. DISADVANTAGES: ADVANTAGES: a.New strategies may lead to enhanced performance
b.The formation of a decision team would lead to better decision making and plan implementation
c.Innovation of new ideas lead to greater employee motivation and participation
d.Loopholes within the organizational strategy, goals, and mission will be resolved a.The formulation of new strategies may lead to even more loopholes
b.Hand-holding will not be lessened without plan manuals
c.The reformation of the strategies may be time consuming and costly
d.The time frame in making a decision is lengthened
- Constitute a more active team of managers in the planning process, develop new strategies based on the past, and provide planning manuals to all Business Family and Element Teams. Alternative 1 is the best alternative. It states that both organizations must constitute a more active team of managers in the planning process, develop new strategies based on the past, and provide planning manuals to all Business Family and Element Teams, tackled all of the objectives.

Alternative 1 brings out the most effective and efficient solution to the organizations’ setbacks. Furthermore, with the help of alternative 1, managers will be more active in the organizations and learn firsthand how the organizations operate. The more active managers are within the organization, the more aware they become of the inefficiencies and ineffective aspects of the operations. Also, the development of new strategies must include the development of a planning manual in order to maintain the efficient and effective performance of the organization and the prevention of “hand-holding” by the different family and element teams. Despite not having the luxury of time in making decisions, a more active team of managers would generate better decisions made through employee cohesion, collusion and synergy. Since the processes in an organization are cycles, knowing loopholes within the planning process would lead to more efficient planning and in time, the organization will reach the zenith of its operations.

...HISTORY Established in 1890, La Fabrica de Cerveza de San Miguel, Southeast Asia’s first brewery produced and bottled what would eventually become one of the bestselling beers in the region. Within the span of a generation, San Miguel Beer would become an icon among beer drinkers. By 1914, San Miguel Beer was being exported from its headquarters in Manila to Shanghai, Hong Kong and Guam. A pioneer in Asia, San Miguel established a brewery in Hong Kong in 1948, the first local brewer in the crown colony. | | Today, San Miguel Beer–the Company’s flagship product–is one of the largest selling beers and among the top 10 beer brands in the world. While brewing beer is the company’s heritage, San Miguel subsequently branched out into the food and packaging businesses. From the original cerveza that first rolled off the bottling line, San Miguel Corporation has since expanded its portfolio to produce a wide range of popular beverage, food and packaging products which have–for over a century–catered to generations of consumers’ ever changing tastes. It has also diversified into heavy industries including power and other utilities, mining, energy, tollways and airports. The Company’s manufacturing operations extend beyond the Philippines to Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia. Its products are exported to major markets around the world. Continuing a tradition of product quality, San Miguel is capitalizing on its unique strengths in brands and...

...In 1889, a well-known Manila businessman, Don Enrique María Barretto de Ycaza y Esteban, applied for a royal grant from Spain to establish a brewery in the Philippines. He was awarded the grant for a period of twenty years. On September 29, 1890 (Michaelmas, or the feast day of Saint Michael the Archangel), La Fábrica de Cerveza de San Miguel was declared open for business. Located at 6 Calzada de Malacañang(later called Calle Avilés), the brewery took its name from its neighbourhood, the arrabal(suburb or district) of San Miguel. The facility had two sections: one devoted to the production of ice with a daily capacity of 5 tonnes, and the other to beer production. The brewery was the first in Southeast Asia using the most modern equipment and facilities of the day. With 70 employees, the plant produced 3,600 hectolitres (about 47,000 cases) of lager beer during the first year and subsequently produced other types of beer, notably Cerveza Negra, Eagle Extra Stout and Doble Bock. Early success led to the expansion of the business and Barretto decided to incorporate his brewery. On 6 June 1893, the company was incorporated and registered with a capital of P180,000. Those forming the corporation were Don Pedro Pablo Róxas y Castro, Don Gonzalo Tuasón y Patiño, Don Vicente D. Fernández y Castro, Don Albino Goyenechea, Benito Legarda y Tuáson, the heirs of Don Mariano Buenaventura y Chuidan and Barretto. Róxas was soon appointed manager, playing a prominent role in the......

North Korea War

...Korean War Korean War The Korean War (25 June 1950 - armistice signed 27 July 1953[1] ) was a military conflict between the Republic of Korea, supported by the United Nations, and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, supported by the People's Republic of China (PRC), with military material aid from the Soviet Union. The war was a result of the physical division of Korea by an agreement of the victorious Allies at the conclusion of the Pacific War at the end of World War II. The Korean peninsula was ruled by Japan from 1910 until the end of World War II. Following the surrender of Japan in 1945, American administrators divided the peninsula along the 38th Parallel, with United States troops occupying the southern part and Soviet troops occupying the northern part.[2] The failure to hold free elections throughout the Korean Peninsula in 1948 deepened the division between the two sides, and the North established a Communist government. The 38th Parallel increasingly became a political border between the two Koreas. Although reunification negotiations continued in the months preceding the war, tension intensified. Cross-border skirmishes and raids at the 38th Parallel persisted. The situation escalated into open warfare when North Korean forces invaded South Korea on 25 June 1950.[3] It was the first significant armed conflict of the Cold War.[4] The United Nations, particularly the United States, came to the aid of South Korea in repelling the invasion.

Tidbits

...TIDBITS OF MY LIFE AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY by Ray Jablonski As one grows older and ponders the past one cannot help but wonder what legacy will dwell. Thus, I shall write about the things in my life, big and small that my descendants may wish to know about and perhaps keep in their memory as well. So I shall begin with the earliest history of my life with the ends and odds of the important things I can recall. These tidbits should reveal what my whole life was all about. Perhaps the luckiest and most important day of my life was 6 p.m. on 7 November 1921 (7/11/21), the day I was born. It happened to be that I was the seventh child of thirteen siblings, right smack in the middle. My mother's name was Florence Amelia. It so happened that she was the thirteenth child of her parents, the Zbrowski's. My Zbrowski grandparents were born and married in the western German occupied area of Poland. They had several children there and migrated the family to Reading, Pennsylvania in 1879. Florence, my mother, was born there on 19 March 1890. She had six brothers and six sisters. She was very fortunate to have received a good Catholic education and graduated from Common School (eighth grade), which was quite an achievement for a female during the turn of the last century. She was bilingual and could read and write both Polish and English. Her father was a successful tailor and a proprietor of a local saloon......
