Conceptual Analysis Of Viora

SITUATIONAL ANALYSISIS
Even though the importance of knowing what the customer feels and thinks about its products is certainly recognised by Viora, I can also conclude that there is not an active strategy on how to obtain such information. Hence, Viora does not currently have a constructive way to understand and analyse information coming directly from customers (Trofimuk, 2015).
In order to understand correctly what information is important to obtain and act upon, I think it is vital to explain how a typical sales process takes place at Viora. I have had several meetings with the company’s General Manager, Customer Support Manager and Financial Manager, respectively Andrea Trofimuk, Gil Shapir and Shachar Meir. These meetings were very helpful in helping me understand the ongoing business processes and sales process.
As mentioned before, Viora’s head office in Israel is responsible for the manufacturing and R&D of all products and machines that are being sold. Therefore, the focus of my project will not focus on the technical or R&D area. The actual selling and related activities are taken care of by the US head office in Jersey City, and

By examining company documents and during interviews with the managers, it became clear there have been some previous efforts in gathering information from customers. In 2013, a survey was constructed consisting of sixteen questions that were aimed to customers as well as non-customers of Viora. When carefully examined, the ways the questions are built as well as the degree of information that could be obtained from the questions is not insightful. Furthermore, this survey did not receive sufficient response to be valid and thus conclusions cannot be drawn from

    Generally speaking, the service of UNIQLO was lower than my expectation. In terms of shop assistants, who can also be called service providers, they have no working enthusiasm. They are not willing to help customers, which means they are pressed for the responsiveness. Two things can be invoked as evidence. The first one, I passed by about 12 shop assistants, but only three of them greeted, two of them asked whether I need any help.…

    According to Smith (2012), if you want workers to take a more active role in your business you need to listen to what they are saying. The number one reason why employees do not step up at work is because management failed to get their input before making any decisions. The reaction employees receive from leadership on their ideas and input is also a factor. I personally have had experience with leadership dismissing my input and ideas. I work for an organization that has four subsidiaries under one parent company; my new director rejects any suggestion that differs from the company she came from.…

    Calvano expressed that there can be multiple weaknesses when constructing business management research. “Findings are sometimes devalued, others do not find them as scientific and they tend to have a bias” (Calvano). She continued to say that there is an over reliance on statistical data in the business management field, which is not always valued. Companies do not bear full control on external factors that influence data and data is constantly evolving. Furthermore, Dr. Calvano says, “there is a lack of importance of qualitative research”.…

    The Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation found that while some data brokers were forthcoming about their sources, many major companies “refused to identify to the Committee their specific data sources” and instead “described general categories of sources - such as ‘surveys’ and ‘public records’.” (Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation). Even the U.S. Government, which is every bit as invasive as the data brokers, can’t get a straight answer. And unfortunately, the general public hasn’t been given anything less vague to work with either. So any lack of information is a result of the severe lack of transparency plaguing the data broker industry, which is a problem itself. The fact that no one knows exactly what’s happening to their data is…

    They relied on secondary sources and interviews with executives to identify the importance of signature processes and did not consider the reality of company culture. Overall, their objectivity was somewhat compromised due to their research, their signature process assumptions and their view that signature processes are a zero-sum game with regard to competitive advantage (Gratton & Groshal,…

    This article focused on four concerns: (1) lack of understanding of how to use analytics to improve the business, (2) lack of bandwidth due to competing priorities, (3) lack of skill set and last culture does not encourage sharing information. Many feel the data has to be correct in order for this to work; I guess this is why correct data was at the bottom of the barriers list. If these obstacles are so important, how does one know this will make a difference if an organization uses analytics? I have a question if other organizations are not willing to sharing information, how are people to learn? So if maybe organizations will have to turn to visualization and other technology to educate the…

    Barbara, as I have looked and pondered the concerns and emails given to me, I have come up with some key facts that will solve your problem. Prior to beginning I would like to address that what you are facing is not just an “accountant” problem but also a teamwork problem. What I mean by that is, you cant expect your company to progress or succeed when half of your workers are scared of working with their coworkers and the other half don’t care about their fellow team members in order to help out. It’s very easy to point fingers and state the issue is poor training but the true root of the problem is lack of team workmanship. Stating this I have come up with 4 recommendations on how to fix these issues, all which are ideas that have come from…
