Broadlooms and Businessmen: A History of the Bigelow-Sanford Carpet CompanyTotal Hits - 1919  |  Hits Today - 3Rating:   Rating Average (14)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
In the closing months of 1945, James D. Wise, the President of the Bigelow-Sanford Carpet Company, Inc., of Lowell inquired if the Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration would be interested in writing a history of his company. The history written shows the evolution of what in 1951 became the Bigelow-Sanford Carpet Company as a result of a merger of eleven predecessor companies whose roots can be traced back to 1825. Leaders in point of time, leaders in scale of operations, leaders in mechanization, in market extension, and in integration, the predecessors of Bigelow-Sanford literally made carpet history. This study of the development of this company is therefore more than an exercise in the background of a single firm; it is a survey of the origins and growth of an important American industry over a period of 125 years.

In this comprehensive volume, Sarah Sherrill examines Western carpet design and production from the Middle Ages to the present, in styles that range from magnificent palatial creations to delightful folk designs. With hundreds of dazzling illustrations, Sherrill's authoritative text includes chapters on Moorish weavers and the golden age of carpets in Spain; the exquisite carpets of the Savonnerie , Aubusson, and Beauvais in France; productions from Moorfields, Exeter, and Axminster in England; the intriguing but little-studied rugs of Eastern European countries; the charming and resourceful rugs of America; and an important chapter on modern designs that offers an extensive survey of rugs created by leading artists and architects of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Sherrill's stimulating text, based on years of research, brims with interesting new findings, not only on the history and design of these works, but also technological developments that had an often unrecognized effect on rug design and production.

The primary audience for this report is managers involved with the highest levels of the strategic planning process, and consultants who help their clients with this task. The user will not only benefit from the hundreds of hours that went into the methodology and its application, but also from its alternative perspective on strategic planning in Hong Kong.

This report helps executives evaluate strategic investment and entry alternatives in Hong Kong. In order to evaluate Hong Kong, Icon Group International, Inc. draws on a methodology developed by Professor Philip Parker at INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France. The methodology decomposes a country's strategic potential along two key dimensions: (1) latent demand, and (2) accessibility. A country may have very high latent demand, yet have low accessibility, making it a less attractive market than many smaller potential countries having higher levels of accessibility.

This report provides a strategic profile of Hong Kong along these lines. Throughout the discussion, literally hundreds of statistics on Hong Kong are benchmarked against regional and global averages. The reader can thus quickly understand where Hong Kong fits into the regional and global perspective. The report first investigates the economic fundamentals affecting Hong Kong. These fundamentals are the source for Hong Kong's latent demand. Then, the subsequent chapters detail Hong Kong's accessibility. This evaluation covers a number of entry alternatives, including export strategies, and local direct investment strategies. If a firm decides to have a local presence in Hong Kong, this requires a strategic understanding of local business conditions. The conditions investigated in this report include local marketing (advertising, distribution, pricing issues) and entry strategies (opening an office, joint venturing, etc.), as well as human resources management (labor laws, costs, regulations). ...
