  1. Compañía Asturiana de Farmacia CAF CO1-271

    The case reflects on Pedro's situation, then C-level executive of the international pharmaceutical company CAF, when in 2015 he and the executive team realize the need to rethink their growth model and overall strategy. With 250 employees and 80 million Euros in revenue, the pride they felt for their success to this date couldn't keep them away from the certainty of needing to steer the wheel. They where considering several growth options that ranged from venturing into other medical specialties, to exporting their business model to other countries or even the possibility of using their factory to manufacture products to third parties. With all of this in mind, they also realized the need to grow their executive team, without still knowing how to face these new challenges.

  2. Airbnb: Disrupting the hotel industry? DE1-217-I

    The case describes the creation and growth process of a company of the so called shared economy with a platform business model, which was potentially disruptive for the hotel industry. Using the setting of the Airbnb entry in Spain and the response of the hotel industry, the case looks in detail at the nature of the business model of a sharing economy firm and the challenges its advancement posed for the industry.

    The case provides insights into some of the different parts of Airbnb's business model: how it creates and captures value, how a company with fewer resources is able to compete and overcome its rivals and threaten a powerful industry, when the success of its business is based on the trust of its users because the company does not guarantee safety.

    This case helps us to understand the challenges that the growth of Airbnb poses for the hotel industry and reflect on the factors that made this business model so successful.

  4. Leroy Merlin España (LME): A communication strategic … CO1-270-I

    In 2008, a leader in home improvement and decoration Leroy Merlin began a strategic approach to communication intended to reflect the transformation taking place in its business model to transition from the traditional brick and mortar retail model to an omnichannel model. This communication strategy allowed individual stores to not only continue with the company's strongest traditions but also give them a key role in identifying and developing projects while acting as leaders and spokespersons for the organization. At the heart of this approach is the idea that success or failure of a strategy ultimately lies in the people who will carry them out.
