The Issue Identification
The Issue confronts by the CEO of the company is to choose the supplier through the detailed analysis of stakeholders. The selection of supplier should be relevant with the win-win situation of stakeholders and the objectivity of the business on actual grounds. The bolt selections and the different processes during the purchasing mechanism of bolt from the supplier should base upon reason over there.
Identifies the entire population of stakeholders
The basic level approach seems relevant with different stakeholders at different level so that the production process could be starts through their consent as well.
- Safety need laws at government level
- Attractiveness in the material at consumer level
- Consent of technical specification during selection of bolt at employee level
- The purchase price at shareholder level
- The labor law practices while selecting supplier at trade union level
- The least harm to external environment at community level: considerations of regulations at NGO’s level
- Understandability of safety measure at general public level
- Ethical business practices at suppliers level involved in decision-making
Indentifies the top three stakeholders with good reasoning
The most important stakeholder that concerns with the external matters and can build the image of the company externally is the community. The environmental concern is the basic way to think about the product and its direct benefits to the community so that community could save. The selection of CO-2 is not needed at all because the heavy disruptions of community can happen in the exact approach. The community, thus a major way to intervene in the internal strategy selection and more concerned than the pricing.
The next stakeholder that can influence internally over the select strategy is the shareholders itself. The Shareholders have the temptation of return on investment are always concerns with the profitability and need a pricing strategy during the production because they are centralized with the consumer demands and profitability through the least production cost. The shareholders are always deal as the consumer demands in the least price because it can enhance their profit as well.
The external regulations of government are almost deal with the product development directly with the regulations. The requirement that should deal in the meaningful way and if not it may hinder the performance in the external environment as the safety regulations in production of bike rack and with the proper weight age directions as well.
Areas for Comparison with Pros and Cons of proposed action for each stakeholder
The poor labor practices in the selection of first company show that the Unions are not happy with such selection that is negatives with the regulations at government level. The labor practices in china can be ignored entirely and there should be international level labor practices that may enhance the image of the company. The pricing level again could attract the pool of customers because it will decrease the cost in production. The selection of second option is the high-priced option and shareholders cannot bear the selection in any form because it will decrease their ROI and benefits the investors of the company. The environment disruption by selecting the second option negates the role of community and separates the business from sustainability concept in any case. The competitors’ observation during the selection is another way that could meet in easiest way after the selection. The weight restriction is the exact information as the customer already has about the bike and government’ institutions also in buzzing the approach to made such products that can be as according to the requirement at government level.
