18537. The Business Models of Dell Computers and priceline.com.

This paper evaluates the business models of two successful e-businesses: Dell Computer and Priceline.com.

This paper addresses the fact that oil prices have been increasing at a dramatic rate in recent years.

Following a brief overview of the structure and current conditions in the U.S. auto industry, this paper considers the reasons behind the deplorable state of the industry (particularly GM and Ford) and considers possible solutions to address these problems. The major reasons behind the industry’s decline are found to include a lack of brand focus and definition; high labor and “legacy” (i.e., pension, benefits) costs; unwise labor commitments such as the JOBS Bank; bureaucratic operating structures; inefficient supplier relationships; ineffective management; and failures to respond quickly to changing market and environmental conditions, including changing conditions related to rising fuel costs. In order to survive and to potentially thrive in years to come, the two flagging competitors in the industry must simultaneously cut costs and increase revenues. Cost-cutting will be painful but even if successful, GM and Ford face enormous challenges in designing, producing and marketing vehicles that customers will want to buy.
