  2. The Oil Sector: The importance of inventory ratios CF1-126-A-I

    Theresa has been hired for her first job as a junior equity research analyst in an investment bank. The first assignment that her boss gives her is to help with the coverage of the oil sector. She uses a Top-down approach in the sector analysis looking at macro, sector and then company specific issues. Theresa has to decide which will be the best company to include in the model portfolio from a selection of European and American companies. To make this decision, Theresa needs to compare the financial ratios of the different companies, paying special attention to inventory ratios, which are key to the sector. Furthermore, the oil sector recently experienced an unexpected and sharp fall in the Brent price that is impacting the financial reports of the companies and their stock prices. During a coffee break, she saw a senior analyst named Bruno. They talked about her report and he warned her to check that the ratios are comparable. The case ends with Theresa recalculating her numbers and being surprised by the results.

    This case is intended for undergraduates. The case "Valuation & Accounting: You can't have one without the other" is similar, but intended for master degrees, if that is your target.

  6. MB&F, la gestión de la creatividad DE1-219

    The case describes the foundation and development of Maximilian Busser and Friends (MB&F) a company that was established in Geneva with limited resources and was dedicated to manufacturing Horological Machines from its inception. One of the principal aims of the company was to produce the high-end watches that would be masterpieces, with limited edition.

    MB&F is an example that illustrates how relevant it is to define a clear vision and idea of the product and the market and how to enter a closed and complex industry with limited resources. However, taking this creative approach in a traditional market was full of challenges.

    Despite of these problems and challenges the company achieved a position as a player in the market. The case describes different reasons for that success, highlighting manufacturing, supply and distribution. Especially, the case remarks how the creativity approach best describes MB&F.

    The case introduces a fundamental question for the company, particularly: if this success is sustainable or if MB&F represents a trendy product that will soon fade away.

  8. El Control de Gestión Estratégico: Planificación Est … CG2-131

    Positive past results are less and less likely to produce positive results in the future. The success of a firm stands in its capacity to adapt to the environment at any given time and situation.

    As a consequence, the role of management control has changed significantly and continues to do so. Faced with the, basically financial, management control of the 80s and 90s, it has evolved to become more strategic, and capable of answering to a firms current capacity to generate revenue. This will be achieved only if we measure and control the selected strategic path, and depends also on the capability to constantly reframe that path, through constant and adaptive strategic planning for every moment and situation.
