The OECD cut forecasts again for the global economy in 2019 and 2020, following on from previous downgrades in November, as it warned that trade disputes and uncertainty over Brexit would hit world commerce and businesses. The Organization for Economic Co- Operation & Development forecast in its interim outlook report that the world economy would grow 3.3 percent in 2019 and 3.4 percent in 2020. Those forecasts represented cuts of 0.2 percentage points for 2019 and 0.1 percentage points for 2020, compared to the OECD’s last set of forecasts in


November. “High policy uncertainty, ongoing trade tensions, and a further erosion of business and consumer confidence are all contributing to the slowdown,” said the OECD in its report. “Substantial policy uncertainty remains in Europe, including over Brexit. A disorderly exit would raise the costs for European economies substantially,” added the OECD. Europe remains impacted by uncertainty over Britain’s plans to exit the European Union, the U.S. - China trade spat and other weak spots, such as signs of a recession in Italy. For Germany, Europe’s largest economy, the OECD more than halved its 2019 GDP growth forecast to 0.7 percent from 1.6 percent previously. It predicted a light recovery to 1.1 percent growth in 2020. Germany’s export-reliant economy is particularly affected by weaker global demand and rising trade barriers.

Using the illustration of any one established brand such as Google, Amazon, Apple, Honda or Samsung, explain the six building blocks of a Brand Resonance Pyramid. According to you, for this brand, which aspects contribute the most to the brand’s high resonance with customers? Justify your answer 3. The motor industry is an area where branding is particularly strong. Global awareness of the three-pointed star of Mercedes-Benz is second only to Coca-Cola. Recent research in the motor industry claims that some of the best-known brands can probably attribute at least half their worth or their equity to the brand. Consider the case of a well-known motor manufacturer - Skoda and how its brand equity increased through changing its image. Initially, Skoda was one of the largest manufacturers, a leader in design & technical innovation, offering some of the most prestigious cars such as the luxury limousines. With time, Skoda became unable to keep up with western manufacturers. Due to lack of creative and innovative ideas and manufacturing processes, the reputation and image of Skoda suffered. The company required a sound partner with the ability to invest, not only money, but also management expertise, thereby improving the efficiency of its factories & raising quality standards. Volkswagen came as a saviour and the partnership was accepted wholeheartedly. Skoda became the fourth brand in the Global Volkswagen Group along with Volkswagen, Audi and Seat. The strategic aim was to reposition the marque, reinforcing the core brand values of high quality & exceptional customer care. Repositioning focused on Skoda’s exceptional value for money, reliability,


functionality, quality and integrity. Skoda drivers are people who are unpretentious, down to earth and honest. The features, benefits and services that a customer will get from buying a new Skoda, will be its performance, looks, modernity, colour choice, design, engine and specification on one hand and its brand's name, image, quality, features such as twin airbags, electric windows front and rear etc., on the other hand, besides high levels of customer service and after-sales. Skoda’s core benefits include a high specification, matching rivals, complying with international standards of safety and emission. Components are supplied by top manufacturers such as Siemens, Bosch and Rockwell and specifications have been improved. The augmented product involves the quality of after-sales service, extended warranty conditions and credit. In fact, Skoda’s customer loyalty, i.e. repeat purchases, is second only to Mercedes. Using the Skoda brand name to launch a new product, through the strategy of brand extension, enabled Volkswagen to enter new market segments. Skoda’s product range is priced towards the lower end of the market, creating a fitment with the strategy of the Volkswagen Group. Skoda’s advertising campaign portrayed the positive changes, emphasizing on its partnership with Volkswagen. Previously, the stereotype of a Skoda owner was predominantly male and retired. Recent changes in brand image and positioning have attracted affluent retired people, independent working women, non-working women and younger family men, leading to large increases in sales world-wide. a. “A car brand is more than just a marque” Evaluate this statement and support with suitable justifications.


b. Evaluate the repositioning strategy of Skoda and its induction in the Volkswagen’s portfolio. Prof.Dr.N.Palaniappan.,MBA.,MCom.,MPhil.,PhD. has 15 years of teaching experience

Initially the Book store chain will begin its operations with 6 major cities which are being seen as potential markets and then slowly it shall expand to other big cities in India as well.

Choosing between a 7-day European dreams or The best of U.S or Amazing Australia or the umpteen options flashing on various travel sites, is indeed a complicated decision; especially in the backdrop of a budget constraint. Quite obviously, while the flashy packages offer the ‘oh-


so’irresistable’ deals, these prices are not just the only costs that the customer has to incur. The real cost of the service to the customer is an amalgamation of many inter-related monetary and non-monetary costs. Discuss the various search, purchase and post-purchase costs that you will have to incur in the purchase of the holiday package. 3. Nannytracker.com is the new kid on the block; a new mobile-app based service which helps you keep a tab on your children and their nanny while you’re out of the house. The Nannytracker, a new service for working parents, allows them the facility of home care viewing on their smartphones. The subscriber can view realtime video through a smartphone that is capable of showing video clips of footage of the home’s interior space. The app gives the user a comprehensive view of what their kids are up to while they are away. Besides the clandestine video clips of the home, that get captured periodically through a hidden camera and are posted to the parents, the smartphone app can be installed at both the parents and nanny’s end, and can work as a vital communication tool between them. The app provides easy messaging between parents, nannies, or any other caretaker, all within the account. Hence, any important information such as medication dosages, nappy changing frequency, food and play instructions don’t get missed out. The app also allows the Nanny to click pictures of the baby and post them so that they remain in one location/ account. The Daily News Feed provides an overview of their activities, as well as all the data that was tracked, messages that were exchanged, and photos that were shared.


The service is being targeted to working women living in urban metro cities such as Delhi and Mumbai; many of whom have domestic helpers to take care of their children during working hours. Although the service intends to provide parents with peace of mind, it could work equally well for pet owners. The app is compatible both the iOS and android platforms. Priced at Rs. 999 on Playstore and App store, as one-time download charges, each member of the caretaker team needs to download the app by paying the installation charge. The charge includes installation of the camera, all app-related services and unlimited data storage. As if this is not enough, the app also allows you to add another child to the same account. And this one’s completely free of charge. You will receive separate notification for both the kids; however, you have to ensure that they are in the same location Now this is what you call women’s empowerment!! a.

The Distance Education Council (DEC) wants to conduct a research among the various distance learners across different colleges, universities and courses across India. Since the population of distance learners is widely dispersed, the research team at DEC feels that it may be effective to conduct an online or telephonic survey. However, these methods have their own drawbacks. Besides, the information to be collected is quite detailed which is prompting the researchers to consider other approaches such as a face-to-face survey. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the various data collection methods available to the researchers at DEC and recommend an approach


2. Nestle wanted to understand the key challenges that their brand Maggi is likely to face in its comeback; in the wake of more aggressive competition from competitors such as Sunfeast Yippee noodles and Patanjali Atta noodles. The research agency took this brief from Nestle and gave instructions to its team to find out the customer satisfaction with Maggi and its arch rivals. “Specifying the research objective in the most clear and precise form, is the most crucial step involved in the research process�. Evaluate this statement in the light of this case and discuss how the steps involved in this research process (as proposed by the research agency) will turn out to be different from what Nestle expects as the research outcome. 3. Scene 1: Nivedita, an interviewer for a data collection agency, approached a couple at the mall seeming to be hailing from a rural background and asked the woman, if she would like to participate in a marketing research survey. The couple quickly walked away. A group of teenage girls overheard Nivedita and asked her if they could participate. They were from rural areas, and they would like to answer Nivedita's questions. Nivedita was ecstatic! She could fill a good portion of her sample with these helpful girls! Scene 2: Nivedita had a list of names and contact details of 100 women in Faisapur in U.P. She started with the top 5 names. In 4 out of 5 cases, the women either didn’t respond to her request or refused to participate. Only one woman took the survey. How will she reach out to these 100 shortlisted women in one week? It seemed to be a daunting task as of now. Nivedita was confused. The reason was simple: The "normal" rules for conducting a marketing research survey do not apply when the target sample is a Rural population.


Nivedita was one of the women researchers who had been appointed by an NGO for conducting a research on the sanitation and personal hygiene methods being used by women in rural areas. The objective was to capture the aftermath of the awareness campaigns been done on account of the Indian Household Latrines (IHHL), School Sanitation and Hygiene Education and Anganwadi toilets. After a whole lot of debate and discussion, it had been decided that the respondents for this survey shall be rural girls / women ranging from a broad age group of 12-60 years. For conducting a survey among this wide audience, two things were done: A list of women was procured from secondary sources of data The women were segregated on the basis of age into the following categories: 1217, 18-25, 26-35, 36 – 45, 46-60 The sampling method had also been very scientifically decided. However, reaching out to these women unknown to the researcher, unrelated to each other, was not working out, no matter how scientific the approach may be. With this very first experience shared by Nivedita as a part of the pilot, the team was a bit confused on whether their understanding of the rural research methods is correct. Anxiety was creeping in as to what should be the ideal method to choose this sample of rural girls / women? a. To choose this sample of rural girls / women, which sampling methods will you consider most appropriate and why? Suggest any two methods and justify your answer. b. Suggest some innovative interview methods to reach out to the target audience Prof.Dr.N.Palaniappan.,MBA.,MCom.,MPhil.,PhD. has 15 years of teaching experience

3. According to TarĂ­ and Sabater (2004), firms must develop both the hard and soft parts of TQM in order to succeed. While the hard elements are related to quality tools and techniques for continuous improvement, the soft side is associated with management concepts and principles such as team work, leadership, customer focus and culture (Fotopoulos and Psomas, 2009). In their study about quality management tools and techniques, TarĂ­ and Sabater (2004) analyzed about 30 commonly used tools and techniques such as benchmarking, brainstorming, design of experiments (DOE), failure mode and effect analysis (FMEA), flow charts, poka yoke, quality function deployment (QFD), quality improvement teams and statistical process control (SPC). Soft elements indirectly affect performance, because they create an environment that facilitates the implementation of hard elements (Rahman and Bullock, 2005).
