i used tristar for exports.. krispy kreme for franchising.. warner for licencing in general.. cca for foreign direct investment.. just general examples for mgt contract and relocation of production i couldnt think off the top of my head.. but i didnt use any in reference to the financial bit
HSBC, Harvey Norman's joint venture (HARVEY NORMAN OSSIA)- hey to Holly if youre reading this, Southcorp and Fosters Group management contracts in Malaysia, Southcorp FDI, Ripcurl Licensing. Id actually done an incredibly similar question on a practise paper and the teacher had filled in the gaps of case studies when he marked it so I was pretty happy with the way it all turned out.
I did the methods of expansion diagram with the risk thing up the side and then used case studies as supplements to answer the question. I think that the one I used the most extensivley was HSBC with figures and diagrams etc. It does seem a little ridiculous to attempt to explain four seperate case studies, but I used a variety of them to detail methods of expansion.
As for DELL, i was really hoping we'd get asked something about business management and change because there was such a good article on their business culture like four weeks ago in the Fin Review.
