...The Battle of Vimy Ridge was the greatest battle ever in the history fought by Canadians. This battle of Vimy Ridge started on April 9, 1971. This battle was the turning point of World War One. The braveness and heroism that Canada displayed while fighting this battle led to an amazing victory and converted Canada from a colony to a powerful nation.

But Canada fought and won the battle making a way to be recognized as such countries.

They had no option other than to fight with British against Germans.

Blue Ridge Spain

... Blue Ridge Spain is a joint venture between an American fast food chain and a Spanish agricultural company, Terralumen. Terralumen contributed to most of Delta’s success in foreign markets. After many years of a successful JV, the European managing director of Blue Ridge, Yannis Costas, found out that Delta wanted to end the partnership. Cultural value orientation conflicts between parent companies of different nationalities led the way for the dissolution of the JV. In an American-Spanish JV board meeting, the Spanish representative pushed to dissolve the JV to show his dissapproval of the way the meeting was being conducted. He had more of a problem with relationships rather that contractual related issues. The Delta/Tellalumen relationship deteriorated because Delta wanted to grow through acquisitions, instead of JV’s, while Terralumen felt their goals were too agressive. Delta pushed the issue, Terralumen agreed to half and shattered the relationship. They fail to devote attention to critical international business cultural issues. Costas, is of Greek nationality. According to Hofstede, Greece is high on power distance and uncertainty avoidance. In Greece, people respect and prefer senior managers over younger inexperienced managers. Costas has put a lot of effort into the JV, identifies with his work and genuinily wants to help Blue Ridge. He has a good relationship with the Spaniards who value his ability to establish interpersonal relationships. Decisions are made......

Vimy Ridge

...Vimy Ridge: From Colony to Nation One of the many brave and selfless Canadian soldiers who fought in the historical battle of Vimy Ridge perfectly stated, “[t]hey fought as Canadians and those who returned brought back with them a pride of nationhood that they had not known before.” War does not only change a single, individual person, but a country as a whole. The battle of Vimy Ridge changed Canada from a colony to a nation in many important ways, allowing Canada’s reputation around the world to become more independent, strong, and connected as a country. When Canada defeated the Germans at the battle of Vimy Ridge, the world saw us as a more independent country. The battle showed that we did not need Britain, and surprisingly, we ended up “emerging from the shadow.” For many years and through many battles, we depended on Britain and their guidance; however, Vimy was different. We came up with our own plan of action. We gathered strong, Canadian troops and generals, trained them properly so that everyone knew their own job, built our own trenches and brought our own artillery. The great Canadian Commander of the Canadian Corps by the name of Sir Arthur William Currie wanted and effectively tried to keep the Canadian troops separate from the British troops. These were all acts of Canadian independence. Our nation truly showed that we could fight and win against a very strong enemy and without our motherland helping us. Furthermore, during the battle, it was all......

5-1 Blue Ridge Manufacturing

...Case I: 5-1 Blue Ridge Manufacturing 1. Blue Ridge’s competitive strategy appears to be cost leadership, focusing on a narrow product type and offering for sale only in the southeastern states. Blue Ridge’s limited offering of products, only a sports towel for limited use and distribution, give it an edge in determination as there are only so many materials, designs, and processes required for this one type of product. Though Blue Ridge does focus on just the sports towel, there are still some aspect of differentiation which causes the firm’s competitive strategy to also deviate a bit towards product differentiation. Blue Ridge offers variations of its sports towels aside from its three customary sizes (regular, hand, and midrange), offering the options of a custom “special” by request, and variations in color, printing, offering custom design or logo printing with a licensing fee, as well as embroidery. In addition to Blue Ridge’s sports towel customization options, it is also considering using a new type of EPA friendly ink along with a better quality towel. Both these changes would increase the cost of sports towels, but provide for a higher end product, allowing Blue Ridge to expand its operations nationally. Blue Ridge’s competitive strategy in the future may branch more into product differentiation, but for now, Blue Ridge’s competitive strategy emphasizes cost leadership, attempting to provide its clients with the most cost effective sports towels for their......

Pea Ridge

...Kourtney Herkelman Dr. Taylor Diversity of the U.S. February 23, 2016 Ethnical and Racial Groups of Pea Ridge, Arkansas Pea Ridge, Arkansas became a city in 1850, but Pea Ridge dates back to before 1836 when Arkansas became a state. Pea Ridge is known for the Civil War Battle of Pea Ridge. Also the famous Trail of Tears runs through Pea Ridge.

Before white settlers came to Pea Ridge it was home to many different Native American Tribes.

Factoring in those two critical aspects and giving them the right amount of attention is the separating line between success and failure. Terralumen, Blue Ridge, and Delta are all successful companies; However, by not observing the basic requirements of international business, the security of this otherwise prosperous enterprise is at stake. Both Terralumen and Delta have shortcomings in the area of international business and Blue Ridge is the only stakeholder in this mix who has the necessary experience and expertise to manage this crisis and find a resolution. Considering the overall profitability of the Blue Ridge brand in Spain and existing investments by each joint venture member, the position from this white paper is to recommend a restructure of the business model to leverage the strengths within the joint venture organization and tailor the Blue Ridge total product more closely to the Spanish market.

Chestnut Ridge Case

...Management (or Decision) Problem The board at Chestnut Ridge Country Club are concerned that they have a declining amount of membership applications. They feel that this cannot be due to any factors outside of their control such as the local economy or change in preferences because they suspect enrollment remains level at three local competitors, Chalet, Lancaster and Alden country clubs. The board has decided to conduct a survey of the local country club membership pool to better understand what reasons may be effecting their declining membership enrollments because they cannot determine any reasons for this to be happening to only them. Research Problem & Objectives The research firm intends to conduct a survey of the memberships of 3 competing local country clubs. The managers of these clubs are very reluctant to give out the mailing list of their clients because they weren’t gaining anything for doing so while giving out private information. The researchers then had to compromise and make a counter offer that they could provide an individual report to each country club about its membership after all the data had been collected and analyzed, they also promised to destroy the client mailing lists after they had used them. The managers of the country clubs accepted this offer and the researchers were allowed access to the mailing lists. The firm then needed final permission from the board at Chestnut Ridge Country Club to conduct the survey under the new agreement......

The firm designs, knits, prints, and embroiders towels. The towels are made in three different sizes; regular (18”x30”), hand (12”x20”), and mid-range (15”x24”). These towels are then sold to their 986 customers, who are predominantly from the southeastern states. The volume purchased by each customer does vary a bit. So, the management team has classified them into three groups; large (8 customers), medium (154 customers), and small (824 customers). The small group consists of customers who call in their orders after seeing ads placed in magazines or catalogues. We have been hired by the firm to conduct an analysis of profitability on their activity-based costing system. Blue Ridge Manufacturing is concerned about how profitable their company truly is. They have hired us to look at their financial activities and advise them of what to do in the future. Blue Ridge has been using activity-based costing for production of their towels for the last few years. They would like us to help them decide not only which products are the most profitable but also which customer group.
