European Management Assignment Plan

European Management Assignment Plan

The Case:
The CEO/MD of the Colourful Corporation has just returned from a skiing holiday with her family in the French Alps.  She passed through Grenoble enroute to the Alps and was very impressed with the business potential of the city.  She thinks that there is investment potential in the Grenoble region.  She didn’t have time to examine this potential in any detail but is considering a possible investment up to EU80m.  She noted  with some satisfaction that the principal industries in the city were education, tourism (associated with the snow industry), ICT, and wine.  She has asked you to join an investigative team she has put together, and to undertake a ‘desk-top’ feasibility study in the form of a business case and send a soft copy to her by COB Mon 15 Dec 14, to provide her with investment recommendations related to these four industries. Your team will then travel to Grenoble to investigate on site, be briefed by a number of industry specialists and undertake visits to various companies in the region.  She regretted her briefing was so short, but she was leaving for China tomorrow and depended on you and your team to come up with a good ‘desk top’ business report for her.
•Your business report will outline at least the key strategic, business, cultural, legal and economic factors as well as any current issues and challenges being experienced by the industries in Grenoble that an Australian manager planning to invest should be aware of, and provide some initial conclusions and your early recommendations.
