Case 11: harleydavidson.com and the Global Motorcycle Industry (pp. 354-358)
This case discusses the success of Harley-Davidson and reviews its global position in 1998. It discusses the company’s initiatives that continued a thirteen-year record of growth in revenues and earnings. The company had a phenomenal 74 percent increase in the value of the firm in 1998 alone. It offers market share and sales information for global competitors in three regions, North America, Europe, and Asia/Pacific, and briefly discusses the product offerings of competitors including BMW, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Yamaha.
The case has been kept relatively short since the Web sites for Harley and its competitors contain abundant additional information. The major objective of the case is to get you to visit these Web sites, compare them, and evaluate them as strategic marketing tools
Questions
1.    Why is the Internet a particularly good promotion medium for Harley-Davidson? Discuss at least three (3) reasons. (55 points)
2.    What different roles could Harley-Davidson’s Web site play for Harley owners, for people shopping for a motorcycle, and for people just interested in motorcycles in general? (45 points)

i need this done in 22 hours and please don’t take it if you cant accomplish it….
Due Thursday (7/21/22).
Watch the Week 3 videos in the University Library.
Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words:
What type of organizational structure is used by your place of employment?
Do you believe this is the best approach, and what changes, if any, you would make to the current structure?
Read the assigned pages from Chapter 7, review the PowerPoint, and watch the videos before responding. You will be able to find the name of the structure of your organization in these resources.
When responding to this topic, please use the names of the organizational structures from the Chapter 7 reading and the PowerPoint. Also, briefly explain why it fits into the selected structure.
Below are some notes from Chapter 7:
What Are the Most Common Organization Structures?
– Functional structures group together people using similar skills.
– Divisional structures group together people by products, customers, or locations.
– Matrix structures combine the functional and divisional structures.
–  Team structures make extensive use of permanent and temporary teams.
– Network structures make extensive use of strategic alliances and outsourcing.
Organization charts describe the formal reporting realtionships in organizations. The organization chart is not an organizational structure.
Organization structure is formal arrangement of people, tasks, positions, and reporting relationships
Organization chart is a diagram of positions—job titles, and reporting relationships—the hierarchy of authority, within a team or organization
Division of labor – people and groups performing different jobs, ideally ones for which they are skilled
Formal structure – the “official” structure, the way things are supposed to operate. The formal structure is not a structure in itself. One of the more common structures is a formal strubture.
Organizations also have informal structures
– Informal structure – a “shadow” organization made up of unofficial but often critical working relationships between members. The informal structure exists within a fomal structure and is not a structure by itself.
– Informal structures have good points and bad points
– Social network analysis identifies the informal structure by discovering who employees communicate with and ask for help.
– Good points include employees assisting each other, providing emotional and social support, building friendships and helping the organization adapt to change.
– Bad points include eavesdropping, gossip, rumors, breeding resistance to change and providing distractions.

Can you cite any examples from your own experiences?

Overview
In this assignment, you will argue a pro or con position involving minorities, women, or LGBTQ individuals given an audience with opposing views.

How do the customers now accomplish the same task?

Business Plans are used extensively in teaching business. The case study research strategy provides the opportunity to develop an in-depth understanding of an organization or event—data can be collected from multiple sources (for example, company websites, interviews, or published articles).
In this project you will select, develop, and analyze an in-depth business plan for a brand new sole proprietorship business. The purpose of this project is to utilize concepts to create a business plan of a new organization of your choosing. The Course Project will build on the skills developed by your studies in business.
The Course Project provides an opportunity for you to practice and apply specific strategic management skills learned in this course. The knowledge learned will help you to further your professional or personal goals. The project is divided in three parts. Every week you are encouraged to complete a section of your Course Project. Part 1 is due in Week 3; Part 2 is due in Week 5 and Part 3 is due in Week 8. Each part should be an APA Microsoft Word document that uses the outlines here as headings for each Part.
Choose a company that is new and can be a sole proprietorship in your own local neighborhood. This will be a business you can start with minimal capital and the intent is to own and operate it indefinitely so selling the business is not a consideration.
Here is a list of business types you may choose from. If you want to do some other business, be sure to get permission from your professor first. The business must be a local service. It may not be selling a specific product or an app of any sort except as an add on or support of the business. These may not be franchises but new small businesses and brands only.

Course Project Part 1 (140 points, Due Week 3)
Cover page
Table of contents
Section A: Business Concept
Section B: Industry Analysis
Section C: Regulation and Legal Review
Section D: Competitive Analysis
This is a capstone business plan so please put in strong substance, avoid doing the just the minimum but keep it focused. Each of the SECTIONs B-N should be about 500 words. If it is much less the student is not fully addressing this area. If it significantly exceeds 500 words, then the writing should be more focused and succinct. Address each section fully. Make sure you use charts, graphs, and other aids to make your plan clear and compelling. Include support documentation in the Appendix to keep your writing to about 500 words per section. You will put your support documents here that provide greater detail and backup for the main body of your plan. You will have more detailed financials, information and raw data about your primary research and any other document that supports your business plan.
The resource material supplied in the course is your very best guide to a quality plan. As seniors nearing graduation, you are expected to use this material as a guide and to conduct self-evaluations of your work against these standards. Address and follow the Course Project Parts 1, 2 and 3. The key quality resources available to you are:
The textbook- Successful Business Plan: Secrets and Strategies™ by Rhonda Abrams.
Weekly lessons
Sample plans in the Week 2 lesson.
The Weekly live lesson/WebEx.
Your professor
The DeVry library
Written drafts (Course Project Parts 1 & 2) and feedback are an important part of this course. There is formal feedback provided in the grade book for Course Projects Part 1 and 2 and an opportunity to improve these. The formal feedback is done in a very structured manner. It is important that you understand and follow the course procedures. Experience has shown the need for some rules on how we conduct this draft and feedback. Each draft must be submitted in a timely manner. This gives you the time you need to fine tune things later in the course. If a part is turned in too late, the opportunity to make a correction and resubmit will be withdrawn. The Course Project Parts 1 and 2 may very well be changed and updated as you learn more for the final Course Project Part 3 submission, but you must still submit timely, competent draft papers.
Course Project Part 1: Business Concept & Industry Analysis (Due Week 3) 140 points
The Course Project Part 1 assignment is the integration of all the sections including the Introduction and Sections A through D. Part 1 should be completely integrated and presented in a logical order, written professionally and free of spelling and grammar errors, and updated with any changes that occurred along the way, including corrections and advice provided by your professor.
Section A: Business Concept: (30 points)
Describe in overview and in detail what you are offering to the market. What does it “do”? What are the benefits to your customers? How do the customers now accomplish the same task? How is your approach better than the competition?
Section B: Industry Analysis (40 points)
Research industry averages for profitability in your marketplace. Use this information to determine the validity of your own projections and make changes if necessary.
Section C: Regulation and Legal (30 points)
Determine your location and business environment. Address all legal, zoning, and licensing concerns your business will face. Visit your state’s Secretary of State website. What form of business will you set up? Why? The level of detail required for this section will depend on your type of location (virtual, retail, warehouse, office, restaurant, etc.) and on your idea. Demonstrate that you have completed your research. DON’T say “We will obtain all of the appropriate permits”; instead, summarize them. When you explain your form of business—remember your audience. For example, if you select an S corporation, explain your reasoning for that selection in the context of your potential business, rather than providing the definition of an S corporation. Address any pending regulations which may have an impact on your business.
Section D: Competitive analysis (40 points)
Describe the competitive landscape. Who are the key competitors? What are their strengths and weaknesses? How will you take share from them? How will they most likely try to stop you if you are successful? Who are your indirect competitors? What do they offer your prospects? Include a map of their locations in your local area.
