#4. Briefly describe five opportunities for continued growth during the next five years for Zara’s parent, Inditex, SA.

It is important to realize the manner in which other competitor’s of Inditex, SA are operating. As the economic criteria for promoting an established discipline in the desired sectors, the most common act to follow is retreat. But as those firms hold back or constrain their efforts to accompany short term financial parameters, I believe that many experienced capitalists will retrieve heightened gains with several uncommon practices to boost capital. First, as mentioned in the article, the firm plans on expanding the number of stores that they now operate in many different countries. This is the most respected, in my opinion, because costs are much lower in such economies, meaning that as others are closing stores and laying off personnel, there is a grand opportunity to enlarge production and develop more progressive features for attracting customers. The price of material and labor are at an all time low, since the early part of the twentieth century, so it only makes sense to move forward in this area.

Another factor to consider is the point of operating at an aggressive level. As I mentioned, many retailers all over the globe are decreasing their efforts to comply with management decisions for the lack of economic prosperity, so this is the time to move forward at an aggressive rate. As competitors tighten, there will be fewer products to choose from, which allow the Inditex, SA organization to prosper at the lack of material on the shelf. Not only will there be a deficiency of product, but less colors and fashion to accommodate the client. This expectation proves the ability to corner the market, if you will, and maximize those results, at the cost of their competitors.

Every firm has a time and place for achieving success, and with the models they have developed

    Even though one might believe that the system used by Benetton and such other collections such as GAP is superior due to the lower labor costs by the outsourcing to other countries and other reasons, in reality the process used by Inditex, the worlds third largest clothing retailer, to produce the Zara brand is much better because even with higher labor costs, transportation and shipping involve in the manufacturing process and shipping finished product to stores, costs are still lower and the product is in one place for production. Thus Inditex has greater responsiveness and flexibility. Inditex uses a network of several smaller manufacturing companies that provide needed materials and provide more flexibility. In addition, Inditex owns all its own shops and is not operated in retail franchises that are owned by third parties. This extra “hands on” approach allows Inditex to have a lot more control over both production and sell of product and allows them to have more direct consumer contact to improve their product or know what the consumer wants. By combining high fashion, rapid response to sales feedback, and low costs—giving the consumer low pricing, Inditex definitely has the superior…

    The jury in a sexual harassment suit brought by a former high-ranking New York Knicks basketball team executive recently awarded her more than $11 million in punitive damages. They did so after hearing testimony during what the New York Times called a “sordid four-week trial”. Officials of Madison Square Garden (which owns the Knicks) said they would appeal the verdict. However, even if they were to win on appeal (which one University of Richmond Law School professor said was unlikely), the case still exposed the organization and its managers to a great deal of unfavorable publicity.…

    The first was a 12-year-old girl. Her parents said that she was awake in the middle of the night complaining of a stuffy nose and sore throat. They gave her an extra strength Tylenol and sent her back to bed. At 7am the next morning, the parents discovered that the girl had collapsed on the bathroom floor. An ambulance rushed the girl to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced dead. That same day, paramedics found the second victim unconscious on his kitchen floor after what they thought was an apparent heart attack. Sadly, the victim’s brother and fiancée also collapsed later that night while the family gathered to mourn his passing. Both had taken Tylenol to help them cope with their loss shortly before collapsing; neither survived. In the next four days, four other similar deaths were reported, all in the same neighborhood and all with similar symptoms.…
