Utilize the data below to answer the following question:

Ready-to-Drink (RTD) Coffee Market

Overall RTD Market

$ 2.5 billion

Starbucks Share

$875 million

35% share

Dunkin Doughnuts Share

$150 million

6% share

Current Cold Brew RTD Share

(multiple brands)

Predicted Market Size of RTD Cold Brew

$50 million (2%)

$200 million (8%)

Coca-Cola and Dunkin’ Doughnuts have a strategic alliance to distribute Dunkin branded coffee to consumers via convenience, discount and grocery stores. Both are highly interested in the growing cold brew market. Coke also is interested in testing expansion of its Peak Gold brand into the cold brew coffee market. Coke is testing ready-to-drink cold brew with both brand partners in US southern markets to determine what path to take in northern markets for a spring launch. They are testing Peak Gold and a Dunkin’ Doughnuts RTD cold brew, both in 3 flavors. (Black/Espresso Cold Brew, Café Mocha Cold Brew, and Vanilla Almond). Coke only wants to introduce cold brew coffee in one brand to optimize distribution capability, and they believe the market will only grow to a total of $200 million (4x current, 300% growth.) Therefore, at their estimated share, it would only justify one brand entry into the market.

Both Coke and Dunkin’ are concerned about cannibalization of the current 4-flavor lineup of Dunkin’ Iced Coffee distributed by Coke with this introduction.

Test results showed Dunkin’ to get an impressive 25% out of the predicted $200 million growing RTD cold brew market, but 75 % of that volume was cannibalization of the current Dunkin’ RTD line. In the Peak Gold test market, they got 10 % of the RTD cold brew market, but did not cannibalize any Dunkin’ Brand. Project test results and estimate the volume of “net new business” (revenue less cannibalization) that would be earned in the rollout of each brand. Which brand provides the greater “net new business” and how much volume is predicted?

Group of answer choices

a.Peak Gold at $20 million net new business.

b.Peak Gold, at $25 million net new business.

c.Information is inadequate to choose an optimal brand.

d.Dunkin’ Doughnuts Brand, with $50 million net new business.

e.Dunkin’ Doughnuts Brand, with $12.5 million net new business

Facts
Most flights are scheduled during early morning or early evening.
Based on their circumstances passengers can require drastically different amounts of time for check-in.
Attendants at the service counters must be able to serve passengers at a higher rate than the arrival rate of those passengers.
At some times there are many departing and arriving flights, while at other times there are few flights.
Challenge
To determine how many service counters to keep open.
Busy Period 1 Busy Period 2
Early morning (6:30am to 9:00am) Early evening (6:00pm to 8:00pm)
Many departing domestic flights Many departing international flights
Average time between consecutive customer arrivals Average Service Time
4 minutes for both the morning and evening 8 minutes in the morning
6 minutes in the middle of the day 15 minutes in the evening
6 minutes in the middle of the day
With multiple service counters, customers can be routed through a single line or dedicated lines for each counter.
You must ensure that customers are not waiting very long and that you're not wasting resources on open counters.
QUESTIONS
During each period:
What is the number of counters that need to be open?
What is the average number of customers in queue and the average waiting time for a customer in the queue before being serviced for check in?
When you need multiple counters open: Do you have one queue for all counters? Do you have dedicated queues for each counter?
What else is being overlooked in the above scenario and your analysis?
How do you ensure that customers are not waiting in line too long before being checked in?
How do you ensure that you don't have too many counters open with no customers at these counters?

Case study:

Ingrid is the CEO of Bathurst Bank, she is currently undergoing a dilemma on deciding a suitable replacement for an HR director position, as the current HR director Liz is going on a maternal leave. Ingrid has the options to either promote someone from Liz’s department to step in or find an external person to cover the maternal leave period on a shortterm contract. She has canvassed the team leaders of 4 sizeable teams that are under Liz’s management. The opinions and viewpoints expressed by the team leaders vary drastically.

Giovanni, the team leader of talent and development team, strongly recommends himself as the replacement person, while the other team leaders respond with anyone but Giovanni. According to Liz’s report on Giovanni’s last performance appraisal, Giovanni is an exceptional performer in the work he does and has a great ability to contribute to the organization. However, there are several complaints received regarding Giovanni’s poor conflict management skills and his ambiguous and competitive personality, both coming from his own team members and from other teams as well. Ingrid would like to keep Giovanni to stay with the company, without giving him this promotion, so she thinks of giving Giovanni a pay rise as a compensate.

In their meeting together, Giovanni is extremely shocked by Ingrid’s decision of asking an external person to be the replacement, as Giovanni has always thought he would be the best candidate for this promotion due to his outstanding performance. The meeting leaves Giovanni disappointed and Ingrid stressed. Later in the day, Giovanni sends a following up email to Ingrid, expressing that he is not particularly happy about Ingrid’s decision, he also expressed that if he doesn’t see a future here at Bathurst Bank, he will seek for alternative opportunities, and he really appreciates the pay rise but would rather see it as a token gesture rather than based on his actual performance at the organization. The email left Ingrid dreading about what to do with Giovanni.

Questions:

1. Should Ingrid have given Giovanni a Pay Raise? If so, discuss it in term of effectiveness and advantages.
2. Analysis for key reasons to Job Dissatisfaction
