Why was JCB's strategy in India a success? Same with Jollibee, yet why did Tesco succeed in Great Britain but fail in the U.S?
JCB entered the Indian market in 1979 via a joint venture with Escorts. The decision to enter via a joint venture arrangement was prompted by high tariff barriers that made JCB’s traditional strategy of exporting its product to foreign locations difficult. Given that JCB was primarily an exporter and had little experience operating in foreign locations, the joint venture arrangement offered the company a means of serving the Indian market without incurring all the risk involved in setting up a wholly owned operation. Until its joint venture with Escorts, JCB had been exporting its equipment from Great Britain to a number of foreign locations. JCB’s experience in actually operating in India gave it the means to not only establish wholly owned operations there, but also to expand into China via a wholly owned subsidiary. JCB was able to match its global rivals and become one of the major players in the global construction equipment industry. A big part of Jollibee Foods’ success has been the development of market-leading brands across several categories. Jollibee outlets accounted for 49% of the company’s sales, as of September, and that share is slipping as the rest of its brand portfolio–both in the Philippines and abroad–grows faster. In the Philippines the company boasts Chinese fast-food chain Chow King, Red Ribbon bakeries, Mang Inasal grilled chicken outlets, Greenwich pizza parlors and its U.S. chain Burger King franchises. Lovell Sarreal, senior assistant vice president of research at Maybank ATR Kim Eng Securities in Manila, says, “Most competitors have single brands. Having multi-food concepts enables Jollibee to capture a bigger chunk of the dining-out market. For example, a typical customer can eat at Jollibee on Monday, Chow…...

Why Did the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745 Fail?

...Why did the Jacobite rebellion of 1745 fail? There were three main reasons for the failure of the rebellion. These were Bonnie Prince Charlie and his weaknesses and mistakes, the strengths of the British army and other reasons; such as the behaviour and attitude of the Highlanders and the English Catholics. The first main reason is the weaknesses and mistakes of Bonnie Prince Charlie. These include Bonnie Prince Charlie’s decision to push on into England, after he had Scotland more or less under his control. His advisers said he should stay in Scotland, but Charles disagreed, thinking he would gain more money and soldiers from English Catholics. When they reached London, Charles only had about 300 English supporters join his army and none of them were important or wealthy Catholics. Charles wanted to carry on and grasp London and the crown, when they reached Derby, but his advisers said to turn back. The Highlanders were uneasy at being so far south. They needed to get home because there was work to be done. How could they be sure if they were even going to be successful? Depressed and demoralised, the Highlanders trudged back to Scotland. They were freezing and starving and to make matters worse they were pursued by English soldiers. When they reached Culloden Lord George Murray, one of Charles’ best commanders, advised that the Jacobites should cross to the soft, mossy ground over Nairn Water. There the ground was ideal for the Highlander’s fighting techniques and...

Why Nations Fails

...Why Nations Fail In this essay, I am reviewing a book entitled Why Nations Fail written by Daron Acemoglu, and James Robinson. The book was written in 2012, and the authors mention the ongoing Arab Spring as they were putting together their ideas in writing. This coincidence makes me wonder if these authors were also impacted by the information revolution or the information outburst as Nye (2013) often chooses to call. In fact, the authors did not mention the term ‘information revolution’ in the book; they simply state that Egyptians are on the street not because they are poor, as many scholars and political analysts suggest, but because power has resided in the hands of a few elites, and these elites have used political power to amass personal wealth at the expense of the bigger mass. But why the Egyptian revolution took place at this particular time, instead of a decade ago, for example? As far as I understand political theories, the answer lies behind globalization and information revolution which opened a new gate to information. That is, since billions of people around the globe are capable of reaching the internet (about 1.7 million according to Nye), many are able to read online news, or even watch them live as they are being broadcasted. Thus, it is possible to associate the Egyptian revolution or the Arab Spring to globalization and information revolution. Acemoglu et al, (2012) also indicate that Egypt’s ex-president, Hosni Mubarak gathered a huge amount......

Why Did Gorbachev's Reforms Fail and How Did Yeltsin Rise to Power?

...Why did Gorbachev's reforms fail and how did Yeltsin rise to power? In typical political terms, Gorbachev unsuccessful, and did thus catastrophically: the "democratic reformation" he tried to enact within the Soviet Union led to the breakup of his state and country. However that's not the total story of his six and a half years as leader, throughout that Gorbachev had two unprecedented achievements. He led Russia (then Soviet Russia) nearer to real democracy than it had ever been in its centuries-long history. And, with the partners he found in American presidents Ronald Reagan and the first George Bush, he came nearer to ending the decades-long cold war than had anyone before him. Nor is it reasonable to assume that Gorbachev should have completed those undertakings. Few transformational leaders, even "event-making" and "historically fateful" ones, are able to see their missions to completion. This is especially true of leaders of great reformations, whose nature and period generate additional opposition and problems than their initiators (unless they are a Stalin) have power or time to overcome. Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal, to require a well-known example, a perestroika of American capitalism, continued to unfold and undergo setbacks long after his death. Most such leaders can solely open political doors; leave behind alternative ways that did not exist before, and hope, as Gorbachev usually did publically, that what they began would be "irreversible." How is this......

Why Did the 1905 Russian Revolution Fail

...‘What 1905 showed was that as long as the Tsarist government kept its nerve and the army remained loyal, the forces of protest would find it very difficult to mount a serious challenge.’ –p.39 Reaction and Revolution. The failure of the revolution in 1905 was caused by many different contributing factors, however the key reason for the failure, was the success of state authority in retaining control. If the Tsarist state had collapsed, as in 1917, the revolution would have inevitably been successful. A revolution means to forcibly overthrow a government or social order, for a new system. However, this simply cannot be possible if the state authority (controlled by the government) does not collapse. The survival of state authority was fundamentally the reason for the failure of the 1905 revolution. Trotsky once said “although with a few broken ribs, (the Tsarist system) had come out of the experience of 1905 alive and strong enough." This quote shows that although the revolt unsettled the government and was the biggest indication of the lack of support for the regime, it wasn’t actually strong enough to break it. In 1905, the armed forces hadn’t yet become sufficiently disillusioned by the Tsarist regime in the same way that many peasants and working class had. The army stayed loyal to the Tsar, crushing revolutionary disturbances and arresting thousands of revolutionaries. The Black Hundreds, a counter revolutionary pro-government terrorist group also helped the......

Why Did Chartism Fail?

...Why did Chartism Fail? * Chartism failed because of economic factors – it was simply a ‘knife and fork question’ * Chartism failed because of the inherent weakness of the movement and internal divisions within the movement * Chartism did not really fail in the truest sense of the word – it was defeated by the state Economic Factors Some historians have argued that improving economic conditions ensured the Chartist movement faded after 1848 – there had been worsening economic conditions in the period after 1837 which gave rise to the chartist movement. After this period, the lessening economic instability, growing prosperity and rise in living standards after 1848 removed basis for widespread discontent. In economic prosperity – Chartism could no longer be sustained. The interpretation has been questioned in recent decades – economic historians began questioning how stable the British economy really was during this time in ‘Mid-Victorian Boom’ (1850-73) e.g. Cunningham – disagrees as he believes the economy continued to fluctuate. A series of subtle economic changes undermined the movement after 1848 and led to the movement’s eventual fall. 1. Development of Railways – Provided stimulus to industries; iron, steel and coal. Economic growth less narrowly based than in period before 1850 when textiles had been leading sector 2. Factory Legislation – Legislation redefined management practices and relationships in the workplace; 1850s-60s saw......

Why Nations Fail

...A Review of Acemoglu and Robinson’s Why Nations Fail by Michele Boldrin, David K. Levine and Salvatore Modica Acemoglu and Robinson’s Why Nations Fail [2012] is a grand history in the style of Diamond [1997] or McNeil [1963]. Like those books, this book is exceptionally fun to read and full of interesting historical examples and provocative ideas. The basic theme of the book is that what matters most in why some nations fail – and others succeed, for the book is as much about success as failure – are not – as earlier authors have argued - economic policies, geography, culture, or value systems – but rather institutions, more precisely the political institutions that determine economic institutions. Acemoglu and Robinson theorize that political institutions can be divided into two kinds - “extractive” institutions in which a “small” group of individuals do their best to exploit - in the sense of Marx - the rest of the population, and “inclusive” institutions in which “many” people are included in the process of governing hence the exploitation process is either attenuated or absent. Needless to say Acemoglu and Robinson’s theory is more subtle than this simple summary. They argue that for any economic success political institutions must be sufficiently centralized to provide basic public services including justice, the enforcement of contracts, and education. Given that these functions are carried out, inclusive institutions enable innovative energies to emerge and lead to......

Why Did Yannis Fail

...small company, she, the author was able to get promoted up from a mere little employee to the assistant manager. However, through the three and a half years that she worked at this company she realized that there were many down falls, and the lack of an actual person in charge, ultimately destroyed the company and it went out of business. Being prepared, understanding the five functions of management are important to the success of a business, however if the functions of management are lacking there will be a downfall breaking of command and the eventual closing of a restaurant. Planning Yanni’s had a mission of brining to Hartland true Greek style Gyro’s, handmade juicy burgers, hand battered fish fry’s, and some of the best custard in Wisconsin. Though the mission was noble and the vision great, there were some serious pieces missing from the picture. Yanni’s was similar to many of the other Gyro and custard stands here in Wisconsin. However, it had two things going for it: it had great custard and authentic traditional Gyro meat. However, it lacked a true leadership structure and inexperienced business owners. Though, I was not involved in the planning and set up of this particular restaurant, I did start within a month of this company being open. The company from the outside looked very sound, well planned, and greatly loved, however, once I began to poke around and learn the ins and outs of this company it was easy to see that there was major lacking in the......

Why Did the 1905 Revolution Fail

...By mid-October 1905, the star was in danger from a general strike across the empire. Liberals and workers had come together and had paralysed the autocracy. The fate of the Tsarist regime hung in balance. But by the end of 1906 Nicholas II was once again in firm control. He had achieved this recovery by a combination of concessions and repressive force. Although the political parties shared the same ultimate goal of overthrowing the existing order; Tzardom, they were divided from one another. The Liberals, the Mensheviks, the Bolsheviks and the Social Revolutionaries had different political programmes. In 1905 each political party made its own struggles against Tzardom. Therefore, the Tsarist government could suppress these political parties one by one. Besides the division between the political parties, there were many disagreements within each of the political parties: the right-wing Liberals disagreed with the radical Liberals, the Mensheviks disagreed with the Bolsheviks, and the Social Revolutionaries disagreed with the radical Social Revolutionaries. The inside division within each party massively weakened the strength of its struggle against Tzardom. And therefore meant that the groups were easily little worry for the tsar. The chief driving force of the 1905 Revolution was the main population, the peasants. But this class were not properly led by the political parties to seize power. Both the Social Democrats and Social Revolutionaries had wrong conceptions of the......

Why Did the 1905 Revolution Fail

...Why did the 1905 revolution fail? One of the main reasons that the 1905 revolution failed was because the October Manifesto merely only satisfied the middle classes’ appetite for reform. However this was only a short term change in government therefore it was not really a revolution because the changes were not permanent. To add, the readiness of the liberals to accept the government’s political and economical bribes indicted that they were not genuinely ready for a revolution at this time. Furthermore the duma did not have as much power as the tsar portrayed them to have. They were not able to pass laws and did not have any control on the state’s finance. To add, another reason why the 1905 revolution failed was because after the strong opposition shown by the first two Dumas, the tsar took away the vote from the people who wanted more change and also opposed the tsar. As a result of this, the electoral system was weighed in favour of the wealthy and those who supported the tsar. The tsar made a conscious decision to make sure that the third and fourth dumas were less openly obstructive and supportive of the tsar as they were keen to project an image of Russia as a democratic nation. This show’s why the 1905 revolution failed because the October Manifesto was not effective enough to cause an effective revolution Another main reason why the 1905 revolution failed was because of the Tsarist Government. They were highly effective in dispersing the revolution, whilst...

Why Did the Spanish Armada Fail?

...many reasons why the Spanish Armada failed but one of the most important reasons is simply because they were not organized and prepared. They came into battle being arrogant. The Spanish were not prepared for the worst thing that could happen. The English planned what they were going to do step by step. They surprised the Spanish by waiting for them at sea instead of having a land battle with them. All of this history is very significant because it shaped how England is today because if the Spanish Armada had won, England would be totally different to how it is today and this essay is going to be telling you exactly what happened and why the Spanish Armada failed. One of the main reasons of why the Spanish Armada failed was because of their planning and preparation. The English were fully prepared because they had 16,000 experienced sailors on board and 76,000 soldiers waiting on land. The English fleet consisted of 177 ships which were small and less than 100 tons. Also 34 of them were Royal Warships so they were ready for anything. On the other hand the Spanish armada was equipped with enough ammunition, food, water for 4 weeks. This was quite a big problem because this was much longer than they expected to be at sea. The Spanish Armada had 16,000 sailors and 34,000 soldiers at sea. Philip believed that God was on the side of the Roman Catholics so he has 180 priest monks on board so they could have daily masses. Another reason why the Spanish Armada failed was because......

Why Strategies Fail

...Explain why strategies fail? Understanding the value of and need for a strategic plan is a great place to start, but just wanting something, isn’t enough. Developing a strategic plan takes discipline, foresight, and a lot of honesty. Regardless how well you prepare, you’re bound to encounter challenges along the way. Some of the below mention factors contribute to failure of strategies. Poor Preparation of Line Managers: Numbers of companies have recognized that the responsibility for formulating strategy belongs to line managers, not staff planners. The latter’s role is supportive and facilitative. But in many instances, line executives have been inadequately prepared to assume this responsibility. Line managers need to understand the key concepts and language of strategic planning. It is unlikely that without some help, they will uniformly understand the operational meaning of such notions as ‘bases of competition’, ‘strategic issues’, ‘key success factors’, ‘portfolio role’, and ‘strategic management’. Typically, line managers view strategic planning as an additional burden imposed from above, diverting them from ‘running the business’. All too often, many line managers adopt a grudging, mechanistic approach to their planning duties. Small wonder that staff planners creep back in to lend a hand and help fill the void. Improving line managers’ understanding and skills in strategic planning through participation in ‘quick-fix’ management development courses often yields......

Why Do Some Firms Succeed and Others Fail?

...businesses make an important contribution to the economy; however it is inevitable that many of these establishments will eventually fail. Data supplied by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that roughly 50% of new businesses do not survive more than 5 years [1.]. As many folks pointed out, there are many variables going into the reason for a success or failure of a new business. Education: A potential business owner needs to be educated to know how an industry works. It is essential to know the industry regulations, governing agencies, and competition in the market. Many successful business owners that I know started working entry positions in an industry that interests them, before opening their own business. Essentially, they learned from their competition, capitalizing from their mistakes. Business Planning: Most of the failed businesses that I encountered failed because of insufficient planning. Over 75% of startup trucking companies do not make it to their second year of operation. Most of these failures are due to poor budgeting and planning. They do not see the true cost of doing business and begin by under bidding their competition. After a year of operations, the overhead cost such as unplanned breakdowns, equipment maintenance, insurance, taxes, or workers compensation begin to eat away their profits. Inevitably the new company fails, mostly due to poor cash flow. Economy: The state of the economy is the biggest factor that is uncontrollable by......

Why Did the Spanish Armada Fail>

...could have succeeded the plan was simple and could have been effective. The Spanish had the strongest army in Europe and the English defences were not exactly good. All the Spanish had to do was get to the Low Countries pick up the armies, take them to Kent, March to London and dismiss Queen Elizabeth I of her throne. This plan was very simple, but could have been deadly if it had worked. The main reasons for it not working out were the communication problems. The messenger ships travelled the same speed, as the Armada so they were nearly useless and the communication between Parma’s army and the Armada were not good. On top of all of this the Armada had received message that Parma’s army was not ready when they were at Calais, however modern research shows that the army would have been ready in just 5 hours but the Armada didn't know this because of Parma's plan to keep it a secret that the invasion army was ready to give the English a surprise attack... unfortunately it didn't just fool the English, it fooled the Spanish as well. Communication was not the only problem the planning was put together so quickly, King Philip hadn't thought of the area at all. The coast where Parma's army were waiting the coast was very shallow and not a very steep gradient at all. The sand was less than 20 metres deep for up to a mile out to sea and the Armada’s ships needed at least 20 metres. This meant that the ships couldn't pick up the army. That problem was soon solved when the army......

Why Nations Fail

...Why Nations Fail Whether a nation succeeds or fails is based on their institutions, extractive and inclusive. Inclusive institutions have unlimited growth with a free market so the people can choose their education, any job, and the chance to own property or businesses. Extractive institutions are ruled by elites, the whole market is under strict control and whatever happens within that economy it only benefits the highest in power. Extractive institutions have poor education and it stops the economy from flourishing and monopolies make it hard for people to own property or businesses. Why Nation’s Fail talks about why certain countries are able to succeed while others fall. Many people debate on how China will end up in the coming years. China’s economy is one of the quickest growing economies in the world because in the past twenty years, China has been growing at an extremely fast rate. It does not seem likely that it will change anytime soon either. Economists’ have been plotting trying to figure out if China’s economy will decline at all for a couple of years now. If they switch to an inclusive economy, it will most likely die off. By having an extractive economy, it will eventually slow down and level out. For example, most of Western Europe, the United States, Canada, Australia, and parts of Asia have all had a fast growing economy, but all ended up leveling off. Rapid growth can also mean rapid crash, just like what happened to the Soviet Union. In the beginning,...

Why Did the Second Crusade Fail

...Why did the Second Crusade Fail? There are a number of reasons why the Second Crusade did not succeed. In my opinion, the most important factor in the failure of the Second Crusade was the poor leadership of both Louis VII and Conrad III. Had they been more competent leaders capable of seeing the big picture, they might have made it to the Near East with more of their force intact. The reason I name the poor leadership as the most important factor in their failure is because without good leadership, everything else falls apart. This includes relations with the locals, logistics, military cohesion and the ability to wage an effective campaign. Having two western kings lead the crusade was always going to be problematic as it created rivalry and tension. Furthermore, these two leaders went on the Crusade with very little guidance or instruction from the pope which meant that they were free to push their own agendas in the Near East, which becomes another source of tension. The Second Crusade is full of examples where these two leaders have done more harm than good and examples include; * Conrad losing control of his army in Byzantine territory, causing a riot and hurting relations with Manuel. * Conrad setting up camp in a flood plain, and then getting flooded. * Louis’ forces terrorising local traders. * Louis leaving Conrad and advancing through Mt Cadmus and subsequently getting ambushed by Seljuk archers, taking heavy casualties. Poor leadership is a more...
