Description for case is given below :
Allison Transmission Division is a $2 billion unit within General Motors (GM) with a very specialized product: heavy-duty automatic transmissions for commercial vehicles. Although the division is part of GM, more than 90% of its output is directed to external customers. Presents a familiar challenge facing many globalizing firms: a pioneer and leader in a market holding more than 60% of the market in North America, but less than 10% outside North America. The presence of leading original equipment manufacturers in Europe who are the key customers for Allison and the large market potential in Europe present a strategic opportunity, but the cultural and institutional differences pose formidable challenge. The technological differences in Europe augment this challenge and the uncertainty surrounding a new hybrid technology that is emerging in Europe complicates the decision. Also presents the company’s attempts in Europe for a decade, leading to the trigger issue–a decision between a joint venture in Austria and a wholly owned unit in Hungary.

The Embrace case series provides an engaging context to understand social innovation, by taking students through a sequence of critical decisions from opportunity analysis and market feasibility study to formulating a competitive strategy and developing business models for growth. The focus of the case is on an innovative idea to solve the problem of a high number of fatalities in premature births in rural India, and the potential for an affordable product. The case is structured as a four-part series:Part A: Opportunity Identification. The setting is an MBA classroom where five teams have been given five ideas and the students are asked to match each idea to each team. The focus is on how to identify and evaluate an appropriate opportunity given a unique entrepreneurial team, its composition, and its prior experience. Often, entrepreneurs discount the critical role that team-task fit plays in subsequent success.Part B: Market Feasibility Analysis. The social problem associated with neonatal care in rural India is presented and the economics of providing reasonable care for premature babies is discussed. Is it possible to find an affordable and profitable price point, and make the project sustainable?Part C: Competitive Strategy.The students are taken through an external analysis of the potential competition. This calls for a close analysis of what the competitive advantage of the venture is and whether it is sustainable. It forces the students to consider other available neonatal care options in the market, as well as to think about the IP issues they could face.Part D: Building the Business Model. The team must decide between manufacturing the product in-house or outsourcing to vendors. Also, issues of distribution and sales require consideration.

Case Solution for Bayer CropScience in India (A): Against Child Labor

Complete Case details are given below :
Case Name :      Bayer CropScience in India (A): Against Child Labor
Authors :           Satyajeet Subramanian, Charles Dhanaraj, Oana Branzei
Source :             Ivey Publishing
Case ID :            910M61
Discipline :        General Management
Case Length :    19 pages
Solution Sample availability : YES
Plagiarism : NO (100% Original work)
Description for case is given below :
The case explores value-driven strategy formulation and implementation by bringing to the fore issues of ethics, responsible leadership, social intitiatives in emerging markets and the global-local tensions in corporate social responsibility. It examines how Bayer CropScience addressed the issue of child labour in its cotton seed supply chain in rural India between 2002 and 2008. Bayer had been operating in India for more than a century. In December 2002, the Bayer Group completed the acquisition of India-based Aventis CropScience. Bayer CropScience first learned about the incidence and prevalence of the child labour in its newly acquired India-based cotton seed operations a few months post acquisition, in April 2003. The Aventis acquisition had brought onboard a well-known Indian company, Proagro, which already had operations in the cotton seed production and marketing – a new segment of the supply chain for Bayer. Child labour was widespread in cotton seed production – a traditional practice taken for granted not only by Indian farmers but also by several hundred Indian companies then accounting for approximately 90 per cent of the market share. The (A) case focuses on Bayer’s decision whether, when and how to launch a self-run program that would take direct responsibility for tracking and eradicating child labour in rural India.
