Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 1,3, Kingston University London, language: English, abstract: This marketing report focuses on Tesla Motors (TM), a young company specialised in manufacturing high performance premium electric vehicles and vehicle powertrain engineering which was founded in 2003 in Silicon Valley. With TMs first launch of its Model S in 2012, it introduced the self-described worlds first premium electric sedan (Tesla Motors, 2015) which brought TM on its successful way into the EV market. The analysis of TMs external marketing environment illustrates that tax incentives promote the use of EVs and thus demand for TMs products. Moreover, the economic factors such as fuel prices, raw material prices and volatility in exchange rates of USD against EUR, have a significant impact on sales and profitability. Increasing awareness of climate change and sustainable environment boosts customers demand and makes the EV market more attractive for TM however range anxiety still hinders further demand. Advancements and R&D in technology are important to improve the charging network which may reduce range anxiety. Safety regulations determine TMs whole manufacturing processes and intellectual property secures successful factors of TM. Teslas Gigafactory is a major opportunity to reduce production costs and increase capacity of battery packs, making TM more competitive. However, threats such as increasing material costs and increased competition in the EV market exert more pressure on TMs competitiveness. The analysis of TMs internal market environment shows that TMs strength is relying on its powertrain engineering and innovative product development, exclusive product design, unique customer service and brand reputation, which are TMs core competencies and thus difficult for competitors to imitate. TMs human resources, in-house capabilities and unique know-how secure TMs competitive advantage and thus strong competitive position and brand perception. However, the recent PR crisis in 2013 weakened TMs financial situation due to falling share price and thus marketing activities and future investments were negatively affected.
This book is one of few papers that highlight the importance of studying corporate governance for institutions offering Islamic financial services. The book is of value in describing governance in Islamic institutions and how there are many issues under the investigation process, especially issues related to the Shari´ah Supervisory board and its functionality. One of the objectives of this audiobook is to discuss, and create greater awareness of, some of the crucial issues related to corporate governance in Islamic financial institutions. A second, but in fact more important, objective is to provide, in the light of this discussion, certain essential guidelines to improve corporate governance in these institutions and thereby enable them to not only maintain their momentum of growth and international acceptance but also safeguard the interests of all stakeholders. This audiobook gives particular attention to the mechanisms for corporate governance, including the board of directors, senior management, shareholders, depositors, and regulatory and supervisory authorities. It also focuses on the effective management of risks and, in particular, on creating a supporting environment through moral uplift, social, legal and institutional checks, greater transparency, internal controls, and Shari´a as well as external audit. The paper also indicates briefly the shared institutions that are needed for effective corporate governance. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bradley Manock.
