Hi I have a question about discrimination if lets say Budbeer the beer producer in Louisiana market competes

Question

Hi, I have a question about discrimination, if lets say Budbeer the beer producer in Louisiana market, competes

with local brewers such as ABC, and XYZ. And lets say that Budbeer typically charged a higher price than its regional competitors, traditionally about 60 cents more per case, and suddenly they began cutting their price in the Louisiana market to the point where its price was lower there than anywhere else. Wile Budbeer did reduce its price, the price never fell below that charged by the regional competitors, do you think that Budbeer engaged in price discrimination? In my opinion I would say yes because they are only offering that price to that specificmarket that is Louisiana. What defenses would be available to fight this? I really can’t come up with any defense other than Budbeer is located in Louisiana and therefore their cost to sell there is cheaper. I still dont think that is a strong enough defense. Can you help me with this question?

A) A lack of risk decision making structure and lack of accountability for risk decisions in an organization

Question

a) A lack of risk decision making structure and lack of accountability for risk decisions in an organization.

Almost every business executive is comfortable with risk decision making, however, in many cases the right people aren’t making those decisions. Organizations need to develop a structure so that the important risk-based decisions are made, by the right people, those who are accountable for the impacts-good or bad. This typically means some kind of risk governance structure that defines what decision making powers each level of the organization has and an oversight structure and escalation path for those risks that need monitored or managed higher up in the food chain.

b) The lack of meaningful risk assessment process. There are organizations that consider risk management something they have to do from a compliance standpoint who conduct superficial risk assessments. Others just don’t have the right skills to develop a meaningful risk assessment process. A meaningful process enables the identification of risks based on the goals of the organization and describes those risks in business terms either qualitatively or qualitatively through a common risk taxonomy.

So who ARE the right people? Do they vary or should the team making decisions stay stable? What factors should be considered when we are looking at our decision making bodies?

Question

After a meeting with the operations manager of your organization, you close the door to your office so you can

think of strategies to resolve an issue that has come up. The operations manager casually mentioned he had just finished a performance review of one of his employees and offered the employee a large raise because of all the hours the employee was putting in. The raise was equal to 11 percent of the employee’s salary. The operations manager, being new both to the company and to a union shop, wasn’t aware of the contract agreement surrounding pay increases. An employee must receive a minimum of a 2 percent pay increase per year and a maximum of 6 percent per year based on the contract. You worry that if the union gets wind of this, everyone at that employee’s pay level may file a grievance asking for the same pay raise. Of course, the challenge is that the manager already told this person he would be receiving the 11 percent raise. You know you need to act fast to remedy this situation.

Scenario Alfonso produces a range of wine gums It has added a new product called the ‘Dimple’

Question

Scenario:

Alfonso produces a range of wine gums. It has added a new product called the ‘Dimple’

to its range. The ‘Dimple’ is an alcoholic Scotch whisky flavoured wine gum confectionery made in the shape of the famous Dimple ‘three pinch decanter’ bottle. In addition, the confectionery has the colour and flavour of Scotch whisky and has the name ‘Dimple’ in raised letters on each wine gum. The product itself is sold from boxes that have Alfonso’s name and details on them. The product is advertised on radio and television under the slogan ‘Dimple — when only the best will do’. No indication that Alfonso is the maker of the product appears in the advertisement. The product has been a great success.

Dang Sons is the exclusive licensee of ‘Dimple’ Scotch whisky for Australia and the holders of the registered trade marks in class 33 for alcoholic beverages for the name ‘Dimple’ and the shape of the Dimple bottle. The Dimple Scotch whisky is also marketed under the slogan ‘When only the best will do’. Dang Sons institute proceedings against Alfonso for infringement of their trade marks in the name Dimple and the shape of the bottle.

Advise Alfonso supporting your arguments with appropriate authorities.

Question

At a local processing plant, supervisors and employees were facing low quality of mail sortation resulting in

mis-sorted, mis-delivered, and mis-sequenced mail. Delivery was being delayed and mail returns were unacceptably high. Machine performance was substandard and overtime usage was high. Employee performance was not being addressed for fear of union shop intervention. Customer complaints continue to rise. The current performance of 93% was below the breakthrough goal of 98%. The plant manager summoned the leadership team to discuss possible solutions to this ongoing problem.

Out of the meeting, the leadership team agreed to an improvement plan to raise the delivery point sequence quality to 98%. A quarterly contest was immediately started with the floor manager receiving the implementation instructions during the program kick-off. None of the floor management staff was included in the planning. Employees were unaware of the program details. Maintenance was not informed. After the first quarter, the quality remained at 93%, and in some weeks even had declined. Customer complaints persisted and employee motivation was evidently lacking.

Nydegger claims the $6,000, but the insurance company refuses to pay more than $2,500 on the ground that the contract was in the nature of a doubtful claim. Is this defense valid? Explain.
