Fortune 500
 The Fortune 500 is a ranking of the top 500 American public
corporations as measured by gross revenue, although eligible
companies are any for which revenues are publicly available
(which is a larger universe than "public companies", as the term
is commonly understood, meaning "companies having common
stock that trades on a stock exchange"). Fortune magazine
compiles and publishes the list annually.

 The Fortune Global 500 is a ranking of the top 500

corporations worldwide as measured by revenue. The list is
compiled and published annually by Fortune magazine. Until
1989 it listed only non-US industrial corporations under the title
"International 500", while the Fortune 500 contained and still
contains exclusively US corporations.

What is Business process?
Business method is a collection of interrelated tasks, which solve
a particular issue.
There are three types of business processes:

 Management processes, the processes that govern the

operation of a system. Typical management processes include "
Corporate Governance" and "Strategic Management".
 Operational processes, processes that constitute the
core business and create the primary value stream. Typical
operational processes are Purchasing, Manufacturing,
Marketing, and Sales.
 Supporting processes, which support the core processes.
Examples include Accounting, Recruitment, IT-support.

The process definition of Johansson et al. (1993). They define a
process as

”a set of linked activities that take an input and transform it to

create an output. Ideally, the transformation that occurs in the
process should add value to the input and create an output that
is more useful and effective to the recipient either upstream or

9 04/20/08
Characteristics for a business process.

 Definability: It must have clearly defined boundaries,

input and output.
 Order: It must consist of activities that are ordered
according to their position in time and space.
 Customer: There must be a recipient of the process'
outcome, a customer.
 Value-adding: The transformation taking place within the
process must add value to the recipient, either upstream
or downstream.
 Embeddedness: A process can not exist in itself, it must
be embedded in an organizational structure.
 Cross-functionality: A process regularly can, but not
necessarily must, span several functions

Walt Disney as a Company
The Walt Disney Company is diversified worldwide entertainment

 Media Networks,
 Parks and Resorts,
 Studio Entertainment and
 Consumer Products.

27 04/20/08
 The Media Networks segment consists of television, radio and

action and animated motion pictures, animated direct-to-video
programming, musical recordings and live stage plays.

 The Consumer Products segment works with licensees,

manufacturers, publishers and retailers throughout the world to
design, promote and sell a wide variety of products based on
Disney characters and other subjects.

28 04/20/08
Corporate strategy:
 Disney's corporate level strategy is based on a horizontal and
decentralized and informal management approach. Ideas are
born from within the departments and are worked-up throughout
the relatively low hierarchy, where the final decisions are made.
The management focuses on group creativity and in team-work.
For instance, the most creative employees usually met every
Sunday in the purpose of coming-up with new ideas and new
business concepts/strategies. The Sunday meetings are
referred to as "Gong Shows", where all participants have to
come-up with a unique idea.

 A large emphasis is placed on employee participation,

especially on the most talented employees. Furthermore, the
company is frequently refreshing its top management with new
executives. "Top-flight" managers from the entertainment and
the financial business bring with them new ideas and concepts
which can be applied in the Disney Company
