  1. 1. THE SHOE CASELET DIAGNOSIS
  2. 2. SWOT ANALYSIS STRENGTHS :  XYZ(P) Ltd is a flourishing, shoe manufacturing and selling firm with an annual turnover of 25 crores.  Given its goodwill in the shoe sector , it has the capacity to spread out its operations in undiscovered areas.  The firm had a valuable employee in Mr.Ghosh, a 25 year old sales trainee, an efficient and well observing person who attempted to give shape to his plans.  The Chairperson of the firm, Mrs.Xaveri, respected her sales trainee's views and approaches to expand the business. She was open for discussion with her subordinates.
  3. 3. WEAKNESSES :  Mrs.Xaveri, the Chairperson of XYZ(P)Ltd, belonging to a traditional family made a traditional approach in her shoe business. She targeted only the male population as in earlier days, women did not venture out much.  She did not make an effort to step out of the family philosophy of only concentrating on male leather shoes.  The firm did not cater to the needs of females and thus revenue did not generate from the female sector.  The firm had employed Ms.A, a 36 year old Sales Manager who was very orthodox by nature and who did not much encourage her juniors to be proactive on their own, thus blocking innovation and leadership amongst her juniors in the firm.  Mr.Ghosh was allowed limited time and budget in his attempt to a possible, new market exploration.
  4. 4. OPPORTUNITIES :  The unexplored rocky terrains of Nagaland filled with poisonous animals and reptiles, posed a major challenge to any innovative, reasonably well known shoe maker, none of whom ventured to operate in this area at that time, thus making a clear opportunity for XYZ(P)Ltd to operate in that area with very little competition from the rivals.  It was observed through a survey that localities of that area, mainly the woodcutters had to travel long miles to buy necessities like very poor quality shoes, sandals at very high prices which provided hardly any safety from the natural elements, forcing repeat purchases. This provided an opportunity to know the exact needs of the people, what kind of safety shoes they needed to protect them from snake bites, etc.  It was observed that the people, including the women, had Church going habits, thus indicating that even women would have to be provided with "comfort" shoes in addition to "safety" shoes for men.  The people had good income as a result of which had good purchasing power thus indicating their willingness to buy shoes.  Many ladies, old people and even children showed interest to buy. 
  5. 5. THREATS :  Competition was becoming intense in the urban areas from Bata and other shoe makers.  A possible threat could be the rocky forests of unexplored Nagaland which were infested with poisonous snakes, scorpions, leeches; the rocks were slippery due to incessant rainfall, making it difficult to tread the paths of the forests.  Threat to Mr Ghosh was that if his idea failed then most likely he would be terminated from his job as his immediate superior was less than happy with his initiative.
  6. 6. SYMPTOMS : Sales revenue could not be generated from the women thus bringing down the firm's market share in the shoe sector. It was becoming difficult to face competition from Bata and other shoemakers.
  7. 7. STAGE OF PROBLEM FORMULATION (Identification and listing of factors singly or jointly causing the symptom)  Manufacturing and selling of leather shoes were targeted only for the adult male population.  Mrs.Xaveri did not go beyond the traditional philosophy of catering to only the demands of the male population.  Innovation factor in the firm was low due to employees at the managerial level were orthodox and discouraging.
  8. 8. STAGE OF PROBLEM IDENTIFICATION  The locals had to trudge miles to the local Haats to do their marketing thus being forced to give up their daily work. Thus if new outlets could be opened up at convenient locations customer satisfaction, retention and expansion could be higher.  From the survey it could be identified that there was a necessity to produce and supply specific shoes which could protect the local workforce from the natural elements like snake bites etc.  The available foot ware available locally was woefully inadequate thus the target population was on the lookout for viable alternatives.
  9. 9. PROGNOSIS  Prognosis is the science and art of managerial deployment where one has to play with the available resources.  Here Mr. Ghosh after reading the symptoms and making a careful diagnosis of the situation decided that the best way to go about is to look for new and virgin markets where the threat of competitors from powerful rival companies will be nil or negligible as they were facing stiff competition in Calcutta from the likes of ‘BATA’ and other shoe companies.  Since this happened in the 1960’s Mr.Ghosh found it easier to find new and untouched territories where they could introduce their brand of shoes. Since Nagaland was well connected to Calcutta and there was a need there for quality foot ware, it seemed like a potential market where if carefully introduced their shoe company may be well received and the chances of making a profit was huge.  So with the available resources in his hand Mr. Ghosh found he could do a couple of necessary surveys to taste the water and see if indeed Nagaland was the ideal market for them.  Mr. Ghosh shows leadership qualities by taking risks and showing innovative ideas.
  10. 10. PROGNOSIS  New and virgin markets are required  Shift from just „selling shoes‟ to marketing shoes is necessary  Threat from competitors should be minimal  The new market should be well connected from Calcutta  This time careful market survey is required to target the right demography  The new and potential market should have a demand for the products which they were willing to introduce i.e quality and affordable foot ware

CONSTRAINTS  The Sales Manager, was very traditional and hardly encouraged her juniors to be proactive on their own.  Mr. ghosh has limited time for exploration of new market.  Mr. ghosh has limited budget in his attempts to explore new market.  Competition from Bata and few other shoe makers.
