  1. Agile Methodologies ENT090082-U-ENG-HTM

    In this multimedia tutorial, students learn about Agile methodology and its relation to Design Thinking and Lean Startup methodologies. The tutorial begins with an overview of the background to the development of Agile methodology (challenges and fundamental changes in the global business environment and ways of working) and an exploration of the Agile Manifesto and methodology as a response to a VUCA world and new technological developments. Students then explore the relationship between Agile, Design Thinking and Lean Startup as it relates to innovation and delivery of work, after which they apply the concepts previously explored to a video case of an Agile business consultant who recounts his experience of implementing Agile methodology at a large global company. The multimedia features dynamic videos, interactive exercises, and several types of question and answer activities (with feedback) for students to reflect on their experience, apply theoretical frameworks, and predict outcomes for real-life business situations.

  2. The Mumbles: From Library Basement to Amazon Prime, … GE1-150-I

    This case follows the evolution of the children’s performing ensemble The Mumbles, primarily through the eyes of founder, George Mumble. George gets his start as a performer hustling to make a few extra dollars, and then working with his brother Paul pursues performance fulltime. The group pivots multiple times, from school performances, to television, to major reorganizations, and then into multimedia. Through this journey, critical concepts are explored in the areas of family business, entrepreneurship and strategy. From a family business perspective, there is the issue of firm succession, as George and Paul seek to ensure strong positions for the children who vary widely in ages. In addition, the brothers seek to balance their familial interests with non-family stakeholders. In entrepreneurship, we track the journey of entrepreneur from passion, to opportunity recognition, exploitation, growth, and mature repositioning for secondary growth. Furthermore, there are the conflicting issues of managing a business for passion versus profit. From a strategy perspective, the case deals with strategic renewal, and ultimately ends with the firm at a crossroads examining its current and potential future strategic positions.

  3. WINES OF GEORGIA: MARKETING THE CRADLE OF WINE MK1-169-I

    The case is about how to build the “Georgia Brand” and how to position Georgian wines on the international market. The oldest wine remains in the world, dating from about 6000 BC, have been found in Georgia, which would allow us to affirm that Georgia is "the cradle of wine." In addition, the country has some 500 endemic grape varieties, and grape fermentation methods that allow making very special wines. All these elements should allow Georgian wines to be positioned as niche products, and to be sold at a high price. However, due to historical and political conditions of the last 100 years, hardly anyone outside Georgia and the former USSR is aware of these facts, and Georgian wines are mostly exported to countries of the former Soviet republics.

    The case points out to several decisions that have to be made regarding Georgian wines.

  5. Champagne Krug. El saber hacer de recuperar una casa … DE1-230

    The case describes the champagne house Krug turnaround process. The house in the late ’90s had a troubled financial situation. Acquired by the French conglomerate LVMH in the late ’90s, and despite the efforts and investments, the house did not seem to recover and, by 2008, was once more suffering financial distress.

    In 2009, Margareth Henríquez arrived as CEO. Based on her previous turnaround expertise in larger firms, Krug seemed like a less challenging project. However, her first year at Krug, with continuous declining sales, proved that Krug’s situation was more complicated than anticipated. The case allows a discussion of the real complexity in setting the strategic rationale of a turnaround. It describes the initial missteps and the search for guidance on the roots of the house, which brought Maggie on a journey of discovering the visionary approach of its founder, Joseph Krug.

    The case is rich in detail across all firm facets to allow a discussion on all the transformation measures taken and its rationale. Then the case is well suited to a debate on strategy implementation. Likewise, it might also be appropriate to discuss the adjustment of the marketing policies on a turnaround.

    Lastly, the case emphasizes the role of Maggie as a transformational driving force. A woman from a different culture on a selective, and to a certain extent, conservative market. Her strategic approach and her decisive leadership in challenging classic policies are also fundamental pillars of the transformation.
