The Consumer Electronics Industry Overview: Version 2

The Consumer Electronics industry is made up of companies from around the world that manufacture electronic audio and video equipment for individual consumers and businesses. In this fast-moving industry, where some products are lucky to have a shelf life of more than a year, companies need to be able to adapt quickly. In addition, they face challenges related to increased regulation, and the need to continually lower prices to move their products off the shelves. But top industry players are able to adopt effective strategies to remain successful. For example, they might focus on improving their business and manufacturing processes in order to reduce their costs and thereby absorb the lower prices demanded by the market. Or they might increase their investment in research and development to address rapid technological change. This course is designed to help learners understand these challenges and some of the common strategies used to overcome them, as well as some of the other key concepts and terminology associated with the consumer electronics industry. This course was updated in 2015.

The Aerospace & Defense Industry Overview: Version 2

The aerospace and defense sector is an international multi-billion dollar industry. Key stakeholders include aircraft and aircraft component manufacturers, civil and military avionics service providers, governments, and privately funded research and development organizations. These organizations deliver aircraft and their components, as well as software and systems, such as modeling and simulation software, and data management, navigation, and surveillance systems. This industry is subject to a high level of government regulation, particularly the defense sector. As it adapts to the entrance of new global companies, the industry is moving towards a highly globalized supply chain. This course is designed to help learners understand the key concepts, terminology, issues, and challenges of the aerospace and defense industry, and to summarize the strategies employed to meet some of those challenges. It will review the two main sectors of aerospace and defense, as well as the many subsectors within this industry. The course will also examine the industry's business drivers and review its competitive environment and current trends. Finally, this course outlines some of the industry's key organizational challenges. This course was updated in 2015.

The Biotechnology Industry Overview: Version 2

Unlocking the potential of biotechnology entails turning scientific knowledge into products that can enhance, and even transform, the conditions of life. A relatively new but growing, global industry, biotechnology involves engineering biological molecules and microbes with desirable new properties. This re-engineering of natural organisms can lead to the development of new and better drugs, medical treatments customized for an individual's biological makeup, disease-resistant crops, and new industrial processes. Some of biotechnology's promises have been delivered, but many have not. False starts are common in an industry where the development of new products is uncertain, time consuming, and expensive. Companies in the industry face other obstacles as well – pricing pressures and a decline in funding, for example. To address such challenges, industry players can adopt new cost-cutting and efficiency measures or partner with other biotechnology or pharmaceutical firms. They also need to deal with increased regulation and strong moral opposition to their activities – particularly in the field of genetic engineering. In response, biotechnology companies seek to educate the wider community about their activities and justify the benefits and safety of those activities to the public, the government, and investors. In this course, you'll find out more about these and other strategies, as well as about key areas of the biotechnology industry, including its main sectors, what drives it, current trends, and top competitors. This course was updated in 2015.
  • identify the main drivers of the biotechnology industry
  • match biotechnology industry sectors with their products and services
  • recognize the biotechnology industry business model
