  5. Mondelez: The Harmony Commitment DE1-215-I

    This case describes how Modelez Iberia launched a corporate social responsibility project called the Harmony Commitment program after good sales results were obtained when it was carried out in France. The essence of the initiative was very closely related to the basis of its competitive advantage: the purchase of local raw materials (they had to be traceable); proven quality; and an emphasis on how the product is associated with sustainability and with maintaining balance in local biodiversity. It obligated farmers to sow a certain variety of wheat under specific conditions.

    Although a campaign that was carried out showed that the initiative had a strong impact and was widely known, the brand manager was not satisfied with the results since it was complicated to measure the program’s commercial impact. He wondered if the concept of "better wheat, better biscuits" was enough as a basis for his sales campaign, thinking perhaps that it was better not to insist on the Harmony Commitment, seeing how complex it was to communicate. On the other hand, the project had had a very favorable acceptance among suppliers and company employees. With the program ceasing to be a novelty and with competitive pressure continuing to grow, the director of communications, corporate responsibility and public affairs must analyze the project’s evolution and decide what the next step should be.

  7. Glownet SI1-150-I

    After substantial growth in the past 3 years of business, the leadership team of Glownet realized they had to sit down and carefully decide their next strategic steps. Technology now enables, even in the field of event organization, scalable, faster and sustainable growth. 

    For this decision they were considering several aspects of the business, including the platform, the possibility of out of the box solutions, whether they’d only expand to markets where they could physically provide support (up until now, this was a central part of their service) and finally other verticals/markets that they could explore.

  9. DIRCOM (1992-2016) DE1BC-214

    During 25 years of life, DIRCOM has been a model of Associative Government, of uninterrupted growth and promoter and witness of the evolution of a profession that has passed from advertising to information, from opacity to transparency, from social action to social responsibility, from the Press Office to the Communications Office, from creating images to supporting the construction of reputations, from being a technician to being a strategist, from being close to the influential to being the influential, from manufacturers of press releases to managers of intangibles.

    The success of this survival, both of the profession and of the Association, must be sought in the unwritten pact between the political and business leaders, on one hand, the communicators and businessmen, on the other hand: businessmen who believed in Communication and professionals who did pedagogy and who convinced these businessmen with actions and not just words.
