Assessment (50 Marks) – Assignment / Written, Practical, Case Study
Assessment: Written, Practical, Case Study
Case Study (Bazaar Ceramics)
1. Company Background
Bazaar Ceramics Studio has been operating for 20 years. We started as a small collective, operating in the picturesque township of Hahndorf, South Australia - known for its quality arts and crafts. Over the years the studio has passed through a number of transformations. In the first 7 years of its existence - as a co-operative, it was well known for producing quality domestic ware and fine individually designed art pieces.
Each member of the co-operative was responsible for designing, throwing, glazing and firing their own work. A gallery director was employed to look after the gallery and all aspects of marketing.
As the reputation of the studio grew nationally, and production expanded to meet demand, the structure of the business changed to its present form. Kim Hayward bought the business and moved into larger premises in Stepney, Adelaide. The production staff increased and currently includes a production manager, 2 full time ceramic designers and 6 production potters.
Bazaar Ceramics has a wide range of products to meet the needs of clients both nationally and internationally. The studio produces exquisite one off sculptural pieces for the individual and corporate collector. Commissions make up approximately 40% of this work. These pieces can be found in board rooms, international hotels and private homes as far away as the US and Germany.
Bazaar Ceramics also produce unique, individually designed domestic ware, including full dinner sets and ovenware.
2. The Products
The current range of products consist of one off ceramic forms (eg vase and bottle forms and dishes) using a number of traditional glazes that are highly prized amongst ceramic collectors. These include
• Copper Red
• Reduced Lustre
• Celadon
• Jun
The other area of ceramic production is the “domestic” ware range. These pieces are also individually designed and hand crafted to the highest quality, however unlike the individual art pieces, our customers are able to purchase entire dinner, coffee and ovenware in a range of designs. Products available in this range include:
• Earthenware dinner sets in a range of brightly coloured contemporary designs
• Stoneware tea and coffee sets
• Stoneware oven and serving dishes

5. Mission Statement
Bazaar Ceramics is committed to producing unique, evocative contemporary Ceramic Art of the highest technical quality.
Our Goals:
? To produce unique hand crafted pieces for the individual and corporate collector
? To showcase the best of Australian Ceramic Art and Design
? To provide an extensive range of well-crafted and designed domestic ware
? To showcase technical excellence in ceramic technology
6. Strategic Direction
6.1 Critical Issues Facing Bazaar Ceramics
In determining our strategic direction for the next five years, the following points have been considered:
• Our business has been growing steadily over the last five years. This is due in part because of our new marketing focus towards the International ceramic art market. This has had a flow on effect in terms of our overall local and international profile.
• Return on investment has decreased due to the high costs of running the gallery and maintaining our international marketing campaign.
• The main source of revenue continues to be from gallery sales.
• Direct retail sales achieve the highest mark-up.
• Sales to account customers are growing steadily but these are mostly interstate and overseas client who find the current arrangements for purchasing cumbersome. Many have suggested we develop a website to streamline the process.
• Our competitors continue to make inroads into the E-Commerce technology and there is evidence that we will be left behind if we don’t embark on this marketing tool.
6.2 Current Status
We are continuing to grow our reputation for unique highly sought after collectable ceramics and professionally designed domestic ware. The key to this success is maintaining the highest technical and artistic standards and investment in marketing our products correctly.
6.3 Longer Term Vision
We will continue to produce fine contemporary domestic ware, however we consider it is the art market where we have the greatest potential for growth. To grow in this area it is important to establish a strong international reputation. This gives our work credibility on the national stage as well.
The marketing manager recently wrote a convincing report on the benefits of the Internet as a marketing and sales tool. We therefore intend to adopt this strategy to increase our profile nationally and internationally, reduce traditional advertising costs, streamline sales and get greater feedback from customers - both retail and wholesale.

Latency; and
Response Delay for Emergency Incidents
Service Level Description of Service Level Service Level Target

Service Level Credits are calculated each calendar month and may only be requested for the month in which they occur. The Duration of a Service Level Failure resets to zero at the end of the month and does not “carry over” to the following month.
Where Client applies Tech Ops Services (as defined in the Service Description for Optional Services) or Client has configured Anti-Affinity (as that term is defined in the Public IaaS Service Description) in both cases in connection with all Cloud Servers, then increased Service Level Credits may be payable (“Rebate Enhancement” applies).
Service Level Credits are capped and the total Service Level Credits payable for all Service Level Failures in a particular calendar month in a particular Location may not exceed: (i) where Rebate Enhancement applies 100% of the Fees Paid; or (ii) in all other cases, 50% of the Fees Paid.

2. Service Level Credit Percentages

For example, if in connection with an Event you request a Service Level Credit for Network Availability, you may not also request a Service Level Credit for Server Availability, Latency or Response Delay for Emergency Incidents.
