The production process includes identifying and procuring the inputs that will be transformed by the business into the final goods and services. MANUFACTORING – transformation in factory SERVICES – transformation in offices In organising production the business managers will try to reduce cost, maximise efficiency and provide quality goods and services Production process Division of labour ◦ Breaking down tasks to the simplest level and designing jobs and employing people to do these jobs ◦ Division of labour brings advantages to an organisations as people become SPECIALISTS they become more EFFICIENT Specialising promotes efficiency ◦ Workers rely on other people working in their specialised job to supply the products and services they need. Who does a heart surgeon or tennis professional rely on? The way that businesses create products and services is known as the production process. There are three main parts to the production process: A firm must purchase all the necessary inputs and then transform them into the product (outputs) that it wishes to sell. For example a football shirt manufacturer must buy the fabric, pay someone for a design, invest in machinery, rent a factory and employ workers in order for the football shirts to be made and then sold. How well-organised a firm is at undertaking this transformation process will determine its success. This is known as the productive efficiency of a firm and it will want to be as efficient as possible in transforming its inputs into outputs (i.e. using the minimum number of inputs as possible to achieve a set amount of output). This will reduce the cost per unit of production and allow the firm to sell at a lower price. Ultimately, the objective of the production process is to create goods and services that meet the needs and wants of customers. The needs and wants of customers will be met if a business can produce the correct number of products, in the shortest possible time, to the best quality and all at a competitive price.

Markets can be segmented on the following four variables; ◦ Demographic – age gender, ethnicity, income, occupation etc. ◦ Geographic – Urban, rural, climate, region ◦ Product related – regular user, new user, brand loyalty price sensitivity ◦ Psychographic – personality, motives, lifestyles Eg. Nova 96.9 only wants 18-39 year olds to listen so they don’t play Frank Sinatra. They then have a valuable product to sell to advertisers. The Toyota Tarago has also been developed for a certain market segment.

The agency, which has also been involved in nation-branding and tourism projects in the US and the Middle East, will assume the $20 million project to market Australia as an export and investment nation. More than 60 advertising agencies from around the world pitched for the Building Brand Australia project announced by the federal government last year, with four agencies making the shortlist. Austrade took a number of concepts from the agencies and put them into research in 14 countries before handing the account to M&C. The contract will run for four years and will see an overarching brand developed to promote Australia. It will run separately from tourism campaigns. The concept will not be unveiled until next month. M&C developed New Zealand's lauded 100 per cent Pure campaign before resigning the account to take on Tourism Australia. The agency's "So where the bloody hell are you?" campaign shot bikini model Lara Bingle to fame but faced criticism from some industry sectors. Last week Media revealed that two local executives, chairman Tom Dery and regional creative director Tom McFarlane, had bought a 20 per cent stake in the agency for $5m from the parent company in London. In the age of the brand, logos are everywhere. But why do some of the world’s best-known brands find themselves on the wrong end of the spray paint can — the targets of anticorporate campaigns by activists and protesters? No Logo, based on the best-selling book by Canadian journalist and activist Naomi Klein, reveals the reasons behind the backlash against the increasing economic and cultural reach of multinational companies. Analyzing how brands like Nike,The Gap, and Tommy Hilfiger became revered symbols worldwide, Klein argues that globalization is a process whereby corporations discovered that profits lay not in making products (outsourced to low-wage workers in developing countries), but in creating branded identities people adopt in their lifestyles.
