Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, printed single-sided, grade: 1,0, Leipzig Graduate School of Management, course: Logistik, language: English, comment: Diese Seminararbeit beinhaltet folgende Themengebiete: - Supply Chain Management - Nachhaltige Entwicklung (Sustainable Development) - Einführung in die Schokoladen- und Kakaoindustrie - Identifizierung von Konzepten zur Einführung eines nachhaltigen SCM in diesen Industrien , abstract: Sustainability has become a significant issue in many companies as it affects their reputation among customers. At the same time, outsourcing and globalization have resulted in the spreading out of supply chains across continents. Therefore, the focus of implementing sustainability has shifted from the single organization to the entire supply chain. This is of particular importance for chocolate manufacturers with their multinational supply chains as they are held responsible by the public for any irregularities which happen in their supply chain.Chocolate brand owners have been confronted with increasing criticism and pressure from politics and public due to the lack of sustainability in their supply chain. A current example is the TV documentary 'Schmutzige Schokolade', a film about child labor on cocoa farms in Ivory Coast, for which the Danish filmmaker Miki Mistrati blames the chocolate manufacturers. The film, which was broadcasted on ARD on October, 6th, 2010, at 11:30p.m., has been sold altogether to 18 countries and was consequently watched by several million television viewers. This paper focuses on Sustainable Supply Chain Management in the chocolate industry. The following chapter contains a short theoretical introduction to the topic. It then focuses on giving an overview of the European, and there specifically on the German chocolate industry. Furthermore, it puts focus on the raw material cocoa from Ivory Coast, as cocoa butter and cocoa powder are among the main ingredients of chocolate and Ivory Coast is the world's largest cocoa producer country. The last two chapters include the description of the importance, weak points, challenges and possible concepts of Sustainable Supply Chain Management for cocoa. The paper finishes with a summary and an outlook.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 3,0, AKAD University of Applied Sciences Leipzig, language: English, abstract: My personal conclusion is that all these three forms of organization have advantages and disadvantages for nearly everyone who might be interested in incorporate a business. On the one side the GmbH could be used for every business and it is proven. But you need not less than 25.000 EUR to start your business under this legal structure. Moreover the Limited is also proven, but there is the problem that you need a registered office probably far away from your generally business location. But the advantage of this legal structure is that there is no need to have any initial capital. The SPE is maybe a great legal structure but nobody could know this because it is not tested. The idea of this form of organization in my opinion is a quite good brainchild. Now it depends on you, than all these legal structures are for capital companies and they are generally used for low and mid-level business. The most important fact is that your responsibility is limited.

Essay from the year 2006 in the subject Business economics - Miscellaneous, grade: 1,8, Leipzig Graduate School of Management, course: Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Cluster Development, 11 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In this paper I am going to discuss factors that initiate and drive the clustering of biotechnology companies. In a first step I will address the question of defining a cluster as such. I then turn to a discussion of believed beneficial outcomes by referring to the works of Porter who claims that among others clusters attract the formation of new businesses and also result in growth of the respective cluster . In the light of ten case studies I will then assess the relevance and impact of critical factors on the creation and development of biotechnology clusters. The findings of the case studies suggest relevant key factors and prerequisites for biotechnological clusters to emerge and to develop. Special emphasis will be placed on the question whether or not the beneficial outcomes of clustering as described by Porter can be confirmed by the case studies and the implications that follow as far as the beneficial outcomes are not being confirmed. The paper will conclude with a theoretical framework that is aimed at capturing the virtuous cycle of biotechnology clusters

Virtually every city-region in West and Central Europe has developed policies and strategies to attract, retain and encourage creative industries and knowledge-intensive services. Since most of these citiy-regions tend to see a creative knowledge economy as 'the best bet for the future', one of the main goals of such policies and strategies is increasing the international competitiveness of their city-region. Using the cities of Amsterdam, Barcelona, Birmingham, Helsinki, Leipzig, Manchester, and Munich as case studies, this book explores the spatial, economic, historical, socio-demographic, socio-cultural and political conditions that may determine whether a city-region is or can become attractive for creative and knowledge-intensive companies, and for the talented people working for or founding these companies. A comparison of the case studies and an overview of the key findings, similarities and differences which lead to policy recommendations as well as suggested directions for further research will make this book attractive to urban and regional academics, planners and students.

Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Supply, Production, Logistics, grade: 1,3, Leipzig Graduate School of Management (Lehrstuhl Logistik), language: English, abstract: Today¿s business environment of tight competitiveness forces companies to cut cost whenever possible in order to maintain or increase profits. Most companies focus their cost-cutting effort on the production process. Therefore the potential of cost savings from an efficient supply chain is underestimated. Although, regarding worldwide service dispersion and increasing environmental concerns, improvement of logistics would be a valuable starting point for cost and pollution relief. In this paper, the cost cutting and value enhancing potential of an efficient supply chain is discussed in detail, with a special focus on the integral element Packaging Logistics (PL). The analysis is structured alongside given research questions, which will be sequentially addressed.

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 1,2, Leipzig Graduate School of Management, course: Service Retail and Marketing, language: English, abstract: Commoditized products and volatile market environments frame the setting that companies are facing today. Thereby, the importance of differentiation as key to company's growth is more relevant than ever. It is widely assumed that differentiation often refers to products or market positions. However, more recently, the concept of Experience Based Differentiation (EBD) emerged as an idea for companies to build sustainable relations and loyalty by delivering a superior, differentiated experience to customers. Managers have become increasingly aware that customers are their most valuable assets. However, pure Customer Relationship Management (CRM) is not sufficient anymore. Thus, Customer Experience Management (CEM) takes CRM to the next level by integrating customer experience (CEx) and emotions during interactions into consideration (Fatma 2014). Tracing the considerably increasing number of customer touch points and derive so called customer journey maps, helps companies to understand the broader reasons of performance gaps and thus address root causes. A recent study by McKinsey & Company (2013) revealed that companies that are able to map and optimize relevant customer journeys reinforce superior CEx, reduce churn and increase revenue, and, as a result, built sustainable relationships. In addition, greater employee satisfaction and an increased effectiveness of cross-functional collaborations have been observed. However, most companies fail to strategically align and manage the CEx across all touch points and miss a great opportunity to differentiate. This gives relevance to a study on the potential of Customer Journey Mapping (CJM), as a way for the marketing management to understand CEx during all interactions. In the process of the present work, the concepts of Customer Experience (CEx), Customer Experience Management (CEM), Customer Journeys (CJ), as well as Customer Journey Mapping (CJM) are important. Therefore, the basic idea of these concepts will be characterized and explained in this sub-chapter. The terms CEx and CEM have been introduced to the marketing management several years ago and have its roots in the concepts of service quality and customer service, which evolved during the eighties and nineties (Drotskiie, 2009, p. 363). Today, a common understanding of the frequently cited concept of CEx is 'the user's interpretation of his or her total interaction
