Development of a strategic and tactical game plan for junior mining companies

Seeger, Michael Walter Fritz 06 July 2009 (has links)
ABSTRACT This thesis undertakes to present a game plan for junior mining companies. It culminates with a game plan model that incorporates all the key steps and tasks that mining investors and entrepreneurs need to use to establish globally competitive junior mining companies. It is based on the research of several listed junior mining companies. The game of junior mining is defined by rules, the player, the elements of playing, and the definitions of winning and scoring. The rules of the game are those defined by the resources industry and general business concepts. The mining assets around which the junior mining game is played are exploration projects, feasibility studies, mine development projects or operating mines. The player is the junior mining company intent on winning the game. Playing the game is done through executing the steps, tasks and simple models and matrices associated with the four business pillars: strategy development, legal and financial, operations management and risks management. The first pillar is strategic, while the last three pillars are tactical. For each business pillar, databases were developed, for the purposes of creating references and benchmarks for the game plan. The databases have been created from the analysis of twenty randomly selected junior mining companies, the author’s practical experiences and previous research. Scoring the game is undertaken by completing the game score matrix, which scores the mining assets, the business pillars and the financial performance, and provides an overall company score. The total company score highlights the strengths and weaknesses of the company. Undertaking the process of playing the game iteratively will lead to creating a globally competitive junior mining company. Winning the game is defined as creating a sustainable junior mining company, that grows to a mid-tier company, or is bought out by a major mining company. ii In the thesis, the game is played using the hypothetical case study of a of a coal junior mining company, with a marginal coal mine, an attractive feasibility study and an exploration project. Step by step the game is played leading to a company score and exposing the company’s strengths and weaknesses. The research concludes by presenting a holistic game plan model that can be applied to any junior mining company in any commodity in constantly changing resources industry dynamics.

Business plan of StalbroHouse LLC

Todorov, Yanko, Stålbro, Sonna January 2008 (has links)
ABSTRACT Background: The current condition of the U.S. housing market has created a possible shift in the way people are purchasing homes today. U.S. housing statistics show that the average person moves every five years, but now with a cooling market people are no longer making quick capital gains off of their property. This means that people are now becoming more conscious of what they buy and why they are buying. People are realizing that home ownership may be moving towards a long term investment rather than a quick flip. Housing is the Seattle, Washington area is expensive. Environmentalists are urging U.S. residents to research ways they can make their homes more efficient and friendlier to the environment. However, the problem really lies in the construction techniques of the U.S. housing industry. People pay enough for their poorly constructed homes as it is, most families are unwilling to pay the extra expense that is necessary to increase the efficiency of their home. StålbroHouse noticed this gap in the U.S. market and wants to bring Swedish prefabricated homes that are superior in construction and design elements. They also require a fraction of the energy U.S. homes consume and are affordable for the average middle class family. Before beginning operations, to get some initial knowledge about the industry, trends, customers etc., we contacted the Washington State Housing Finance Commission. In addition, an informal interview was conducted to enhance our knowledge on the typical customer and what customers commonly base their purchasing decisions on. In order to get an even better understanding about the customers, we visited the annual Home Show at the Seattle Convention Center in January of 2008. We distributed feasibility surveys to get an even better understanding for what people want in a home. This enabled us to get closer to the target group. To get a better idea of competitors and in particular their marketing efforts, we called a couple of them directly. In some cases, we spoke with their marketing managers. Purpose: The purpose of this Thesis/Business Plan is to outline the direction StålbroHouse plans to take in its first years of operation as well as explain why we think this is a viable business. This document will also serve to communicate the companies ideas and projections to future investors and (or) so that we can obtain a bank loan to assist in the capital necessary to begin operations. Method: We used a combination of relevant theory that was applicable to the desired outcomes of the Thesis/Business Plan. Relevant industry statistics, charts, and information was incorporated with the theory that enabled us to produce a business plan that was backed up by academic findings as well as market research. This aided in the creation of a Businesss Plan that would allow StålbroHouse to demonstrate their projections for the first years of operations. However, as with any business plan, it is important to remember that outside factors, market changes etc. can mean the need to deviate from the initial plan. Sonna Stålbro & Yanko Todorov

Abraham Academic Academy 國際語言學院企業計劃 / Abraham Academic Academy Business Plan

蔣友文, Vatougios, John Unknown Date (has links)
The intention of this business plan is to outline the creation of an internationally recognized education institute through its franchise of a world class set of chain schools that specializes in both supplementing a host country's national curriculum (cram school) and providing foreign language courses (language center). The consumer-side of this education institute will focus on the provision of its curricula, programs, products and services to pre-university ages and levels (PK-Grade 12) through the development of kindergarten, elementary, and middle schools and junior and senior level high schools. The franchiser-side of the business will focus on the provision of everything needed by a school to ensure that a franchisee can be customer centric with the consumer-side running at optimum efficiency and the lowest possible cost structure. Abraham Academic Academy is the Brand name of this education institution. It will function as the head-office and be responsible for the franchising obligations; franchising, curriculum and network development; and consultation, customer relation and student services development. All businesses and schools that operate within the franchise will adopt a portion of the name. For example, Abraham Academic Academy Kindergarten, Abraham’s Elementary Language Academy, Abraham Academic Academy Junior High School, Abraham’s Senior High Language Academy, Abraham Academic Academy Consultation Services and Abraham’s Student Services. Abraham Academic Academy plans to own and operate some of its own schools as well as sell franchises. In terms of the chain's local growth and expansion plans, Abraham Academic Academy has organic and aggressive models that are interlaced. A point of interest is the Abraham Academic Academy view on education in this chain school era, which explains their focus on acquiring bankrupt and struggling schools and bringing into the brand small, local, independently run schools with the promise of a brighter tomorrow through our network. Local for Abraham Academic Academy means Taiwan. We are going to begin our focus on Asia by starting operations in Taiwan. Our flagship school is to be located in a suburb of Taipei and will initially consist of kindergarten and elementary grade (1-6) school programs. The local curriculum of a specific school will be based on the public and private schools that exist in the vicinity of that Abraham Academic Academy school, which the majority of our students are expected to attend. Initially, our language program will only focus on the English language and its curriculum will parallel the Western K-12 systems used in Canada, America, and Australia. Our language curriculum will also embrace elements of the British and European education system encompassed in the international baccalaureate program. By having our language program focus on the Western K-12 system, we are in essence providing a service that is only available in a few of the elite schools in a Non-native English speaking country. The current vision of English as a second language (ESL) that is embraced by most language schools is very limited to a recreational sense of the language and is missing two important and practical applications that are crucial to a student’s development. First, to support a student, who in the future might make the transition to an overseas school through the provision of important knowledge already taught to local students there. Second, to provide a unique international view of the world to a student through subject matter that is neglected in both non-native English speaking national curricula and standard language school programs. Internationally, Abraham Academic Academy plans to expand from its base of operations in Taiwan by proceeding to China. From China we plan to begin going south into Vietnam and north into South Korea. By this time we expect to bring the Chinese Language into our language schools curricula. The world already recognizes that China will be an economic powerhouse by 2030, and trends already exhibit that Chinese language acquisition will become important in the future. Our intention is to utilize the schools in our network in Taiwan and China to obtain Chinese teachers and managers. We will provide our Chinese teachers with an exchange program and groom managers to either own or temporarily run schools in the new countries while implementing the Chinese language programs there. For the purposes of this business plan we intend to go over the long-term aspects of building the Abraham Academic Academy franchise, but focus on the immediate short-term opening of the kindergarten school.

Easy Pasta上海創業計畫 / Business Plan of Easy Pasta in Shanghai

高紀光, Kao, George Unknown Date (has links)
Easy Pasta上海創業計畫 / In the food industry market, especially Asian food markets such as Shanghai, Taipei, and other major cities, currently the major concerns of consumer groups are practically food safety, food quality, and the service quality. In order to have a successful business it is important to make sure those three factors are all taken into consideration when operating a restaurant. Through my observations and living experiences in Shanghai, we have found that Easy Pasta will be able to cater to certain segments of the general population, in particular, the parts of the populace where people are rushed for time during lunch and dinner, and we are confident that it will be able satisfy the clients requests of good food, speedy and good service. Easy pasta originates from the streets of Venice, and Easy pasta’s goal will be to bring authentic Italian food into the client’s hands in the shortest time possible, along with the best service that can be provided. There will of course be doubters of this business, but in this business plan we outline the important strategies to achieve full success in this field, and we will be able to, if we follow our plans strictly, to be able to differentiate ourselves from the other restaurants offering similar products. One of the key points of this business plan is to remove ourselves from the over competitive Red ocean of business, and enter ourselves into the Blue ocean of business, enabling us to be entirely different than the majority of our competitors
