The study assesses and proposes opportunities for change in the cooperation between brokers and insurers using the Swiss commercial non-life insurance industry as an example. The term "cooperative production process" refers to functions which typically involve cooperation such as need analysis, submission process, and contract issuance. A functional approach, value chain analysis and transaction cost theory build the theoretical framework of the analysis. A broad survey and personal expert interviews disclose that the current cooperative process is characterized by a broad range of issues both on a process, organization as well as relationship level. On the one hand, survey results confirm the persistence of a traditional understanding of an intermediary role of the broker and a highly integrated value chain of insurers. On the other hand, there are clear tendencies of a shift of consulting functions to the broker. Overall, unclear roles and respective responsibilities, a low degree of standardization as well as a lack of process performance measurement are the major underlying reasons of issues.

As a new President takes office in Washington, the country is reeling from an economy that is approaching depths not seen since the Great Depression. The financial industry is in trouble and the new administration is insisting that the largest banks all participate in the Federal Bailout program. Jace Orren, CEO of one of those banks, doesn't believe his bank needs the bailout and refuses to take it. Under the direction of McMillan, a very powerful behind-the-scenes advisor to the President, the government tries through direct and indirect means to force Jace to go along with the President's plans. In the struggle between this Machiavellian advisor and Jace Orren, the banking, automobile and airline industries all become involved in a battle setting the powers of an intrusive and controlling government against the ideals of free market capitalism.

A Groundbreaking Pricing Model for the New Business Landscape Why would any customer choose Brand X over Brand Y, regardless of price? In a word: Value. When customers feel they are getting good value from your product or service, they are more than happy to pay more-which is good news for you and your business. Even in today's global market-with its aggressive competitors, low-cost commodities, savvy consumers, and intangible digital offerings-you can outsell and outperform the rest using Value-Based Pricing. Done correctly, this method of pricing and selling helps you: Understand your customers' wants and needs Focus on what makes your company different Quantify your differences and build a value-based strategy Communicate your value directly to your customers Now more than ever, it is essential for you to reexamine the reality of the value you offer customers-and this step-by-step program shows you how. Developed by global consultants Harry Macdivitt and Mike Wilkinson, Value-Based Pricing identifies three basic elements of the Value Triad: revenue gain, cost reduction, and emotional contribution. By delivering these core values to your customers-through marketing, selling, negotiation, and pricing-you can expect an increase in profits, productivity, and consumer goodwill. These are the same value-based strategies used by major companies such as Philips, Alstom, Siemens, and Virgin Mobile. And when it comes to today's more intangible markets-such as consulting services or digital properties like e-books and music files-these value-based strategies are more important than ever. So forget about your old pricing methods based on costs and competition. Once you know your own value-and how to communicate it to others-everybody profits.

Ein Buch zum Thema Informationsmanagement, das sich NICHT an IT Manager richtet. Es untersucht, wie man mit Information richtig umgeht, um einen echten Unternehmenswert zu schaffen. Mit einem einzigartigen '4-Wege'-Diagramm erläutert Don Marchand seine Ideen und untersucht vier verschiedene Möglichkeiten (Risikominimierung, Kostensenkung, Kundenzufriedenheit, Schaffung einer neuen Realität), wie ein Unternehmen Wertschöpfung durch Informationsmanagement erreicht. Marchands Kernaussage lautet: Information ist ein wichtiges Werkzeug für ALLE Manager und leitenden Angestellten, nicht nur für Experten. Seine Botschaft ist klar und deutlich, und er liefert exakt die Information die ein Nichtfachmann braucht. Dieser Band ermöglicht erstmals einem breiten Publikum den Zugang zu Wissen und praktischem Know-How führender Managementexperten. In the e-business economy, managers are faced with too much data and too little meaningful information about markets, customers, products, company operations and finances. Their greatest challenge is to identify, manage and use the right information to compete. Information management is too important to a company's performance and growth to be delegated primarily to IT, information or financial specialists. This book is based on the idea that information management is the responsibility of every manager. Managers may not be IT specialists, but they must create the conditions for effective information use that creates real business value. Donald Marchand and his colleagues at IMD invite you to learn your information responsibilities, so your company can use information faster, better and smarter than the competition. By using the business framework of 'strategic information alignment,' this book shows how information can create business value through delighting customers, being more innovative, managing risks and being the low-cost leader in your markets and industries. Learn the why, what and how of better information use and management in your company. At last, here is a book about managing information written specifically for business managers. Developed from the executive teaching, consulting and real world research of a team of faculty who work with the world's leading global companies every day, this book provides managers with the mindset and guidance to leverage the company's capabilities to use and manage information to create business value.
