Research Paper from the year 2012 in the subject Business economics - Economic Policy, Comenius University in Bratislava (Management), course: Vorbereitung Dissertation, language: English, abstract: The first considerations of this thesis developed in 2006 during my second degree course for the MBA degree at the HDU Deggendorf (Germany) and the University of Limerick (Ireland). At the time of this course there was a great discussion at the business schools of the universities that were part of the MBA programme about the influences of the internet commerce on the market potentials in retail. Socalled disruptive strategies by companies such as Amazon (for books) and Unister (for tourism) created massive upheavals in the respective trade segments. The upheaval hit small retailers as much as industry giants. The question for me was if the threats would reach a new pinnacle in the static retail business. Already during my first degree course as a university business graduate (MA equivalent) during the years 1993-1998 (time of the “new economy” hype) there were enormous market redistributions, then mainly in the financial services sector, but in the early stages already also in the book trade, which often could not be fended off by established companies. The questions that I have been wondering about since are: “What will the retail market look like in the next few years?”, “How will companies have to act strategically under these aspects?” and “Are there things that endure and never change (so-to-speak anchor points on the market)?” In my research work over the last few years I have tried to find answers to these questions and looked for potentials for a successful retail business.

The global phenomenon, embraced by business worldwide and now published in more than 40 languages. This international bestseller challenges everything you thought you knew about the requirements for strategic success. Since the dawn of the industrial age, companies have engaged in head-to-head competition in search of sustained, profitable growth. They have fought for competitive advantage, battled over market share, and struggled for differentiation. Yet, as this influential and immensely popular book shows, these hallmarks of competitive strategy are not the way to create profitable growth in the future. In the international bestseller Blue Ocean Strategy, W. Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne argue that cutthroat competition results in nothing but a bloody red ocean of rivals fighting over a shrinking profit pool. Based on a study of 150 strategic moves (spanning more than 100 years across 30 industries), the authors argue that lasting success comes not from battling competitors, but from creating "blue oceans"—untapped new market spaces ripe for growth. Such strategic moves, which the authors call “value innovation,” create powerful leaps in value that often render rivals obsolete for more than a decade. Blue Ocean Strategy presents a systematic approach to making the competition irrelevant and outlines principles and tools any company can use to create and capture their own blue oceans. A landmark work that upends traditional thinking about strategy, this bestselling business book charts a bold new path to winning the future. Published by Harvard Business Review Press.

Nowadays most European Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) within European continent outflows towards Eastern Europe in the countries like Hungary or Czech Republic. Each nation-state will have some competitive advantages. Why should non-for-profit company like RFH choose to enter just Bosnian market, the country which was destroyed by the war a few years ago and where progress is still needed in many areas and not some of markets mentioned above? Which special strategic and legal issues non-for-profit organisation must consider in such case? Why choices of investment locations, mode of entry and initial pricing strategy have critical impact on value added to the firm's competitive advantage? This report will give answers on these and further arising questions. It concerns Information technological (IT)-Centre of one German non-for-profit organisation (RFH), and its attempts to benefit of global capital while diminishing the negative effects of economic swings in the home country. On studying and analysis of the literature relevant and reliable sources of information, to invest in Bosnia and Herzegovina in the vocational training and educational sector is nowadays moreover absolutely a recommendable commercial decision. All economic indicators argue for it. The analysis determinate four main reasons for it: Improvement of vocational Training and Adult Training sector is one of the emergent sector priorities settled in governmental Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper and European Commission Feasibility Study as a precondition for cooperation between EU and Bosnia. Local competition in the area of Vocational and Adult Training is extremely weak (currently there are existing only 2 private companies similarly to RFH). Bosnian market offers enough potential customers which may use Vocational and Adult Training offers. These customers are local industry as well as students, scholars and unemployed people (Rate of unemployment in Bosnia amounts to 43%). A row of investment incentives and financial incentives are offered by European Union (EU), Bosnian government and Germany they reduce risks of FDI in Bosnia.
