Review the following Case Study taken from Chapter 1 of your text, and answer the following critical-thinking questions:
Warby Parker Puts Affordable Eyewear in Focus
Entrepreneur—a person who risks time, effort, and money to start and operate a business. That definition describes Dave Gilboa—along with Neil Blumenthal, Andy Hunt, and Jeff Raider—four entrepreneurs who started a new type of eye- wear company called Warby Parker. Their goal was simple: Sell eyeglasses for less than $100 per pair. The business idea grew out of co-founder Dave Gilboa’s personal experience. When he was a graduate student, he lost his glasses while hiking and was so outraged by the high price of replacing them that he squinted for months rather than buy new glasses. Eyeglasses are made from wire, plastic, screws, and glass, yet the retail price is often many times the actual
cost of the materials, yielding a hefty profit margin. Adding a designer logo to a pair of frames pushes the final price even higher. Talking with friends, Gilboa learned he wasn’t the only person unhappy about having to spend a lot for eyeglasses. So the four entrepreneurs became a team and created a business plan for a new kind of eyewear company that would sell eyeglasses at an affordable price.
What really makes Warby Parker different? How can they sell eyeglasses and sunglasses for less than $100 while other retailers and marketing intermediaries including LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, and Sunglass Hut sell their products for much more? Again, the answer is simple: They sell directly to consumers. Direct marketing through its online virtual store keeps Warby Parker’s distribution costs low and avoids the kind of markups that other retailers use to increase the final price they charge in order to boost their profits. Another rea- son why Warby Parker can charge less is that its in-house designers develop all its frame styles, which means no licensing fees for the right to use famous fashion logos. Customers benefit because Warby Parker passes the savings along in the form of affordable prices for quality eyewear.
Warby Parker’s online website makes it easy—very easy— to buy eyeglasses. Customers can select up to five eyeglass frames from its online inventory and have their choices delivered for a five-day free at-home trial before purchasing a pair. Warby Parker pays the postage both ways, so the customer risks nothing. Frame prices begin at $95 per pair, although optional extras such as progressive lenses will increase the final price. After deciding on a frame, the customer submits a prescription, clicks to finalize the order, and receives new glasses by mail within one to two weeks.
Originally, Warby Parker marketed its eyeglasses only online. In 2010, initial sales were so brisk that the startup surpassed its first-year sales objectives by the end of the first three weeks. During the first six months of 2011, Warby Parker had already sold 85,000 pairs. Since then, sales have continued to grow each year as more tech savvy customers are purchasing eyeglasses online. But not everything is online. Customers have always been able to visit the company’s headquarters, see frames in person, and try them on before ordering. This proved so popular that after a few years, the co-founders decided to open small showrooms in large cities so more customers could try on frames and consult with staff before making their purchase.
Now Warby Parker has embarked on an ambitious strategy of opening more stores in cities where the company’s database shows high concentrations of customers. It now has over 50 stores and showrooms in 22 U.S. states. Some of these stores are equipped for optical examinations. Some include photo kiosks so customers can snap fun photos of themselves wearing different frames and post to social media for advice from friends. The photos don’t just help customers make buying decisions—they keep the Warby Parker brand in the public eye and help the firm stay in touch with customers who opt to receive communications.
What’s next for Warby Parker as it shakes up the eyewear industry with direct marketing, retail stores, low prices, fun styles, and social responsibility? Good question. While sales are reported to be over $100 million a year, the company does have a social conscious: It donates a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair it sells. As evidence of its commitment to social responsibility, Warby Parker is now a “B corporation.” Choosing to become a B corporation is one more way to demonstrate its commitment to social responsibility and attract customers, investors, and employees who share those values. At the time of the publication of your text, Warby Parker is funded by private investors. And although there have been rumors that Warby Parker will sell stock to the general public, it is just speculation at this point. You may want to keep your eyes open to see what happens to this young eyeglass company and how it may impact the eyeglass industry.
Critical Thinking Questions:
1. In this chapter, business was defined as the organized effort of individuals to produce and sell, for a profit, the goods and services that satisfy society’s needs. In what ways is Warby Parker satisfying the needs of its customers?
2. Given that Warby Parker’s original idea was to sell online to minimize distribution costs and keep prices low, they now have opened over 50 stores in 22 U.S. states. Do you agree with its more recent decision to open traditional retail stores?
3. Imagine you wear eyeglasses and have just broken your last pair of glasses. Would you purchase glasses from Warby Parker’s online store or go to a traditional retailer? Explain your answer.

The purpose of this assignment is to assess how potential value-enhancing strategies may pose risk to “Southwest Airlines”.
Keep in mind that increasing value for the firm does not necessarily mean expanding the business. Acquiring other firms, conducting research and development, or introducing new products and services might fall under the umbrella of value enhancement, while in other cases it may mean downsizing, rightsizing, or even refining the products and services the firm offers.
In a paper of approximately 1,500 words, revisit the strategic alternatives and financial analysis recommendations that offer the greatest opportunities to add value to your firm and assess the risks of each. Use the information you have learned about “Southwest Airlines” business model, industry, competition, and target market.
1. In the Strategic Alternatives Assessment, you evaluated potential growth opportunities and strategies for “Southwest Airlines”, using a SWOT analysis to assess the advantages and disadvantages of each. Recapitulate your findings here in conjunction with any instructor feedback received, identifying how you determined your proposed strategic alternative(s) and calculated potential inhibitors to each. Expand upon your initial proposed alternatives to include financial considerations.
2. However, it is equally important to consider what other information, had you been able to locate it, would have been of value in formulating recommendations. What information are you lacking that might assist you and your team in developing and suggesting value-enhancing strategic alternatives? What information are you lacking that would assist you and your team in better assessing and managing possible risks of the proposed alternatives?
3. When it comes to making strategic recommendations to management, financial considerations weigh significantly on the feasibility and viability of the available options. Revisit the Financial Analysis assignment and, with the incorporation of any instructor feedback received, reiterate your findings on the financial condition and performance of the firm respective to the risks and benefits of forming a strategic alliance, profitability ratios, and possible value-enhancing strategies.
4. how would you refine or update your assessment of the organization’s current performance and financial strategies regarding “Southwest Airlines”?
5. How would you use a decision matrix to determine the risks of your suggested strategic alternative and the potential financial implications for your company of pursuing this alternative? Is the decision matrix an effective tool for predicting risk? Why or why not? How does the application of the decision matrix alter what you previously chose as the most advantageous strategy?
6. Utilizing a risk matrix, identify a minimum of 10 unique risks associated with the strategic alternative you believe will provide the most significant opportunity for your firm to add value. Choose two or three of the most critical risks and discuss their potential impacts on your selected alternative.
Submit your risk matrix with your written response.

Module 8: Planning Practical Solutions for Ethical Challenges in Contemporary Business
It now seems that there are an endless number of ways in which information is collected on us. From biometric scanners, CCT cameras on every other corner, merely searching on Google or clicking our smart devices, businesses are collecting data on our every move. Tech companies are currently rushing to design apps that even allow for contact tracing. The increasing reliance on, collection, and use of data enabled by innovations requires businesses to contemplate the responsible use of how to use that data that is being accumulated on individuals.
In this module, we will both evaluate and formulate practical solutions for these increasing ethical challenges
If businesses won’t protect personal privacy or security based on data that they collect from individuals then what is the best way to make that happen?
