The director and chair of the governance committee at MacDonald, Dettwiler & Associates Ltd. (MDA) considered how to advise the company’s chief executive officer (CEO). As a company in the space industry, MDA relied on its exports to the United States. Joint ventures were helpful in securing contracts from the U.S. government but they were not always advantageous in other ways because these ventures required partnerships with competitors. At this time, MDA had no long term strategy to address this issue. The supplements MacDonald, Dettwiler & Associates Ltd. (B) and (C) look at subsequent events that were unforeseen at this particular time.

Complete Case details are given below :
Case Name :      Future of “Big Pharma?”
Authors :           David W. Conklin, Murray J. Bryant, Danielle Cadieux

Case ID :            905M47
Discipline :        General Management
Case Length :    17 pages
Solution Sample availability : YES
Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
Several new developments were threatening the success of Big Pharma. The patents on well-known blockbusters were reaching expiry, and generic manufacturers were eagerly waiting to produce lower-priced copies. Throughout the world, governments were taking a more active role in determining the prices at which drugs could be sold. The expansion of government insurance programs was adding to the complexity of the marketing challenges. Another change involved a shift towards direct-to-customer advertising, including the proliferation of information on the Internet, in addition to the traditional process of sales visits to family doctors. Research funding had doubled since 1991, but the number of new drugs emerging each year had fallen by half. The research and development process was also changing dramatically. Whereas blockbuster drugs had been developed as general treatments for common conditions, it was becoming increasingly apparent that not all patients reacted in the same ways to these drugs, and some – although a very small percentage – suffered serious side effects. This reality was expected to lead to the creation of a much larger number of niche drugs, each one targeted at a narrower group of patients. Related to this development was the growth of biopharma in which new biotech companies were creating drugs that could attack specific cells. Some analysts felt that Big Pharma was in a peculiar predicament in that profits were still very large, and this served as a barrier to necessary changes in strategy.

He had assumed the leadership of the TBCC in December 2006. Alberta Health & Wellness had created an ambitious provincial vision for cancer in which the director would play a key role. The director recognized that it would be difficult to gain buy-in from the different stakeholders because they were used to a different way of operating. Before moving forward, the director wanted to have several discussions with ACB, his management team and the front-line staff, and present to them some preliminary objectives.

Description for case is given below :
The newly appointed chair of the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology (department) at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry was thinking about how she would approach the next five year in her new role. The chair thought about two of the important issues she would face: building a cohesive department and nurturing a high performance culture. She became chair at a time when direction was needed. The department had formed in June 2002 as a result of the merger between the Department of Physiology and the small Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology. While the merger had gone well, the chair still sensed that some faculty members in Pharmacology felt as if their department had been taker over by Physiology. At present, it was sometimes difficult to assess performance between faculty members due to differences in workload composition and a lack of documentation. The current thinking was that the department had to move towards adopting best practices in their processes. The chair wanted to look at the issue from a broader perspective. She wondered how the issue could be best framed and what a potential solution might look like.

Discipline :        General Management
Case Length :    11 pages
Solution Sample availability : YES
Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
The Royal Group Technologies case provides information on the insider trading and other allegations faced by the former executive officer and the company’s management team. The executive officer founded the firm after immigrating to Canada from Italy, and built it up into a large conglomerate by the 1990s. However, by the early 2000s, stakeholders were starting to question some of managements’ practices, including awarding themselves high levels of compensation and engaging in related party transactions. The allegations led to charges being laid by the RCMP in 2008. An Ontario Superior Court justice acquitted the management team in late 2009, providing a soon-to-graduate MBA student the chance to review the company’s successes and challenges in the hope that some general lessons about corporate governance can be distilled.

Boots Group PLC, one of the best known and respected retail names in the United Kingdom, provided health and beauty products and advice that enhanced personal well-being. The marketing manager at Boots was planning a sales promotion strategy for a line of professional hair care products. The professional hair care line consisted primarily of shampoos, conditioners, and styling products (gels, wax, mousse, etc.) developed in collaboration with United Kingdom’s top celebrity hairdressers. The marketing manager’s challenge was to select one of three promotional alternatives–get three for the price of two, receive a gift with purchase, or an on-pack coupon–for the Christmas season. The alternative selected would have both immediate effects on costs and sales, but also long-term implications for the brands involved. His primary objective was to drive sales volumes and trade-up consumers from lower value brands, while retaining or building brand equity.
