  13. 13. Innova<br />Production Strategy- Workstation Capacity<br />Simply Innovation ®<br />We committed to assembling as many units as possible in-house<br />We maintained above-average workforce compensation for most of the simulation (through year 13)<br />Utilized temporary employees during the peak production season, Quarter 3<br />Number of Installed Workstations<br />Workstation Utilization Rates<br />
  14. 14. Innova<br />Production Strategy- Labor & Workforce<br />Simply Innovation ®<br />Prioritized in-house production over outsourcing<br />Completed permanent hiring at the beginning of each year<br />Outsourcing was only necessary in rare instances when actual demand outperformed management’s projected demand<br />Maintained accurate forecasting<br />Total PAT Compensation<br />Production Costs, In-House vs. Outsourced<br />

  17. 17. Innova<br />Entry Level Competition<br />Simply Innovation ®<br />Strongest competitor during the last two years was Company C<br />Changed their strategy in year fourteen to become a low-cost provider, placing themselves in direct fierce competition with Innova. <br />Our second closest competitor was Company E <br />Had a best cost strategy <br />In certain years, Company E threatened to steal demand and market share <br />Never threatened to surpass Innova’s performance as a whole<br />
  18. 18. Innova<br />Multi Level Competition<br />Simply Innovation ®<br />Companies C and E were our strongest competitors<br />Pursued a differentiation strategy<br /> Innova stayed ahead of the competition <br />Quality<br />Set standard as the industry leader <br />Successfully reached its strategic goal of designing a camera for consumers who are looking for “nothing but the best,” <br />Companies C and E became market followers and provided a camera for people who were looking for “almost the best” quality at a slightly lower cost.<br />
  19. 19. Innova<br />Actions To Take- Entry Level<br />Simply Innovation ®<br />Continue to reduce our costs to keep competitive edge<br />Strive to offer the lowest-price entry-level camera and be the low-cost leader<br />Investors expect an image rating of 70 or above<br />Will not lower the quality of our cameras below 2 stars<br />Will not jeopardize our brand reputation to win a cutthroat rivalry<br />Constant fierce price wars can result in the destruction of the entire industry<br />Not willing to sacrifice long-term viability in order to achieve by destruction<br />
  20. 20. Innova<br />Actions To Take- Multi Featured Level<br />Simply Innovation ®<br />“Stay the course” <br />Continue to assemble the highest level quality cameras<br />Maintain the position of industry leader though continuous investment in research & development<br />Remaining flexible and innovative<br />“These investments will give us a first-mover advantage in whatever changes affect the industry’s shifts in demand.”<br />-Dan Wesolowski <br />CEO<br />
  21. 21. Innova<br />Lessons Learned<br />Simply Innovation ®<br />Demand and Market Share<br />In year eight we realized how important it was to focus on decisions that would increase our demand<br />Found that the elasticity of demand in the entry-level segment is above 1.0, which means that total revenues increase when price is lower and that consumers in our target markets were fairly sensitive to price<br />Technical Support<br />The more money we would invest in tech support, up to a certain extent, communicated to customers how much Innova stands behind its products. <br />This made a great impact in our product demand <br />From Year 9 forward, we concentrated meticulously on the precise amount to invest in tech support <br />Over time, we increased quarterly tech support per unit from $3.00 to around $5.00<br />
  22. 22. Innova<br />Lessons Learned<br />Simply Innovation ®<br />The Human Factor<br />Above-average employee compensation resulted in a higher quality of work <br />Contributed to our profit margin by lowering the warranty claim rates and production costs <br />Savings allowed us to maintain the lowest price in the entry-level segment<br />Improved employee dependability<br />Lowering absenteeism<br />Delivering their best work quality on a consistent basis. <br />Innova’s human resource policies indirectly resulted in high customer loyalty and a high company image <br />
  23. 23. Innova<br />Lessons Learned<br />Simply Innovation ®<br />Production Capacity<br />Took a risk by expanding production capacity<br />But if successful – like Innova’s was – the rewards can be high<br />Recommendation to other companies is that they should outsource processes that they perform at an average or below-average level. <br />Those processes which they do well – their core competencies – should remain in-house.<br />Foreign Exchange Rates<br />Affected our company’s profits more than we expected<br />We underestimated the sizable amount of the effect<br />
