(Reidenbach & Robin, 1990). In the context of business, possible egoistic actions like helping others, giving gifts as long as they believe that benefits maximise their own interest. Hence, legal unethical actions can still be made, despite the fact consequentialist theories aid in decision making. A real-life example would be Johnson & Johnsons’ shampoos and powders contain talcum-based, which is harmful to users, yet the organisation producing it. (Stacey, TIMES 2016) As supported, Johnson & Johnsons did not admit the harmful fact till the last moment, prove that organisation are only concern about themselves fearing slow sale and lost in
ROA, is a financial ration that shows the company ability to generate profit out the used asset. Murniati (2016) found the higher the ROA of a company, the higher the value of the company 's assets and lead to higher stock prices as much in demand by investors. ROE, measures the ability of a company to generate profit on a certain equity. Although, there is no clear link between ROE and stock prices, Rotblut (2013) believe that it works effectively when combined with other indicators. He explained that ROE provide a quantitative measurement of management 's effectiveness at generating profits from a company 's net assets which lead to better trust on the company capability to generate profit and consequently higher demand on its share.
Competitive advantage of a firm is the edge that it has over its competitors (Altharti 2012).It is important to state that competitive advantage (CA) cannot be achieved without a business strategy or business model. It is the business strategy, which is the management game plan for creating value for stakeholders and earning a reasonable return on investment that gives a company a competitive advantage over rivals in terms of higher financial performance on revenue, return on investment etc. The author accepts that Porter’s generic strategy and value chain are important tools in understanding the competitive strategies being deployed by rivals in any industry analysis. An understanding of the generic strategies such as the broad low cost provider, broad differentiation strategy, and narrow focus strategies on cost and differentiation being deployed by competitors can provide opportunities for existing and potential competitors by trying to achieve a lower cost or better differentiation by rivals. The value chain is an internal analysis of how an organization organizes
The pricing strategy or pricing policy is one of the most important managers make for a product as it affects the profitable outcome and competitiveness that a product may make. (Toni, 2017). A business can use a variety of pricing strategies when selling a product or service. The price can be set to maximize profitability for each unit sold or from the market overall. It can also be used to defend an existing market from new entrants, to increase market share within a market or to enter a new market by dropping the price or offering more benefits with the device such as packages.
Intuition, in the form of Steve Jobs personal judgment of what products would succeed rather than rely on analytical market research methods, is one example of where narrow definitions of Six Sigma can fall down: 99% of the time analytical methods are useful to find counter-intuitive solutions the ordinary executive cannot fathom, but there is always that 1%, the Steve Jobs, that defines that rule and that LSS or anything like it not very relevant. The problem, of course, is that many senior executives fancy themselves as belonging to that 1% genius category when clearly they do not, but part of the failing of many Six Sigma deployments is its inability to understand or act upon the possibility that the 1% exists and arises in subtle and unpredictable ways. Why IPhone Is A Great Marketer? (1) Hire customer-obsessed, empathetic employees. (2) Iterative customer involvement.
Another reason that makes us believe that the usage of Photoshop is unethical is the fact that it helps in increasing the sales of products that shows fake effect while being advertised. This is an important issue that cannot be ignored as these companies are basically robbing the consumers by trying to deceive them that the product actually works. The very famous company L’Oreal, which is known for being one of the companies that exaggerate the effects of their products using Photoshop, discontinued their mascara ads of the last year. This is because they used Photoshop to exaggerate the effect of their mascara, which was considered as misleading. (Edwards, 2013).

Positive brand equity: This is achieved when customers are eager to pay more for a good with a distinguishable brand name than they would pay for a common version of the product. Negative Brand Equity: A brand's equity is measured to be negative when customers are not willing to pay extra for a brand name version of a product. Negative brand equity arises when a company’s brand has a negative impact on the business. This implies that company would be better off with no name at all.

Another downside that is frequently ignored is whether CSR is consistent with brand concepts. A recent study shows that conveying CSR messages of luxury brands like Rolex causes consumers to lower the evaluation of the brand (Torelli, Monga & Kaikati, 2012). The rationale behind the surprising result is that luxury brands tend to propagate “self-enhancement concept”, which emphasizes on the dominant possession of resources, while the essence of CSR is welfare for all (Torelli et al., 2012). The dilemma is fairly challenging for luxury brand managers when general public demands disclosure of CSR but their target consumers disrelish
