A case study of the Resource-Based View to Acer group's ReengineeringLee, Chin-Tai 31 August 2012 (has links)
As the leading brand in the international PC industry, Acer has been encountered countless challenges on dramatically environmental change when it endeavored to create and operate its own brand. To achieve the aim of sustainable management and the strategy of organizational growth, Acer has embarked on its reengineering several times since it was established. The purpose of this study is based on the Resource-Based View to uncover what kind of key factories contributed in Acer¡¦s two time of reengineering? And what kind of unique resources and capabilities were created? This study also characterized and catalogued these unique resources and capabilities to figure out clearly that what kind of main resources and capabilities existed at the first glance. There are three stages for Acer¡¦s transformation: the first time reengineering was happened in 1992; the reengineering in 1998 was called the quasi-reengineering stage that Acer adjusted its organizational structure to relocate operational direction; the second time reengineering was happened in the end of 2000. Based on above three different stages, this study analyzes the effect of internal and external environment as well as the operational strategies on each stage to infer its resources and capabilities. Moreover, This study categorizes these resources and capabilities by the classify method of Fong- Cher Min (2000) into four groups, Tangible Asset, Intangible Asset, Human Resource and Organization Capability, and discuss how Acer used these resources and capabilities to foster them became the Sustainable Competitive Advantage to overcome the harsh IT industry environment. By the way of analyzing the case company in depth, this study found that the probability of resources or capabilities can be upgrade into the Sustainable Competitive Advantage was not only affect by the properties such as Appropriability or Inimitable, but also greatly influence by outside environment. Furthermore, the next time success of reengineering was attributed to those of resources or capabilities which have been accumulated since earlier periods. Therefore, this study suggests that a firm should continuously adjust its competences as well as accumulate reengineering experiences to cope with the unpredictable environment.

The Competitive Advantages and Strategies of Chinese Language Centers in Taiwan¡XA Case Study of National Sun Yat-Sen University and Wenzao Ursuline College of LanguagesCheng, Shu-lin 10 July 2008 (has links)
Ever since China opened its door to the world in the ¡¥90, investors poured into China to ¡§dig gold¡¨. Hence, a new surge of ¡§learning Chinese¡¨ has been setting off. According to an unofficial statistics, over 30 million people all over the world are learning Chinese. Likewise, Taiwan is certainly eager to attract Chinese learners while the whole world is infected with ¡§Chinese fever¡¨. As a result, Chinese centers affiliated to higher education institutes in Taiwan have sprung up in recent years. However, the market size in Taiwan is relatively smaller in comparison with China. Each year, the average number of foreign students heading for China fluctuates between 70,000 to 80,000 while only about thousands of students choose to study at Taiwan though the number eventually exceeded 10,000 for the first time in 2007. As the market remains stagnant, the emergence of more competitors obviously intensifies the competitiveness. Therefore, how is each Chinese center going to survive and even excel in such keen competition? Many scholars analyze competitive strategies of enterprises from external factors. Whereas, the research of Rumelt ¡]1991¡^and Roquebert¡]1993¡^indicates that external factors only account for 15%~19% while analyzing the variation of overall performance. The resource-based view investigates how enterprises build up and sustain competitive advantages from internal resources and abilities. This research is conducted on the basis of literature review and in-depth interview with two Chinese centers that enjoy a long history in Kaohsing area¡XNational Sun Yat-sen University and Wenzao Ursuline College of Languages. The purpose of this research is to probe into the strategies these two Chinese centers apply in light of the core resources and competitive advantages they possess. For those universities and colleges who plan to join this industry in the future, they may use the following conclusion and suggestion as reference in identifying their own competitive advantages and strategies. The conclusion this research has drawn is particularized as follows: 1. The core resources Chinese centers value are reputation and faculty¡¦s professionalism. Further, intangible resources are more important than tangible resources. 2. The core abilities Chinese centers value are administration, R&D and corporate culture. 3. Both Chinese centers tend to apply ¡§Strategies of Differentiation¡¨ though each possesses different competitive advantages. Whereas, our government should consider to simplify the application procedures in terms of admission and visa in order to attract more foreign students inwards. The review of Taiwan Scholarship Program and consulting service provided to those international students are necessary. More active initiatives should be adopted so that Taiwan can stand out as the key Chinese-learning providers. Further, a clearer and more favorable Chinese teacher certification system should be stipulated in order to attract more people of ability to devote themselves in this industry.
