Case study
Objective 1 – To sell and service MacVille espresso coffee machines in every state of Australia in the
next five years. All states have a MacVille machine, apart from the Northern Territory where it took
some time to get an agent, and an experienced espresso machine repairer has not yet been found to
take on the job due to the attractiveness of mining industry pay rates.
• Strategy (a) – Sign, action and establish the strategic alliance agreement with Java Estate.
KPI (plan) – 200 machines installed p.a.
KPI (actual) – Agreement signed within the time limit and actioned, but only 180 machines
installed in the past 12 months. There was a slower uptake in Northern Territory and North
Queensland, due to the tourist slump with the strong Australian dollar.

Strategy (b) – Establish a MacVille Melbourne warehouse.
KPI (plan) – MacVille opens in Melbourne within two years after Sydney opens for business.
KPI (actual) – Melbourne warehouse is still not open. It is currently being run on the more
expensive agency model.
• Strategy (c) – Set up agents in other states and outsource maintenance contracts.
KPI (plan) – Agent agreements and outsource maintenance contracts for South Australia,
Western Australia, Northern Territory, Tasmania, ACT.
KPI (actual) – Still no service contractor for Northern Territory. All others met the deadline,
although agents in Western Australia, Tasmania and Northern Territory were very expensive.
Objective 2 – To increase profit margins by 5% from our 2010 benchmark in the next five years. After
two years, profit margins have improved by 2%. Some agent contracts and outsourcing contracts are
very expensive.
• Strategy (d) – Instigate bulk buying negotiations to reduce supplier price.
KPI (Plan) – 100% of purchase by the container load.
KPI (Actual) – 100%. Volumes have increased to the point that all orders fill a container. KPI
achieved in quicker time due to the initial increase in demand.
• Strategy (e) – Operate all departments at optimum capacity and productivity.
KPI (plan) – Wages to turnover ratio of 12.5%.
KPI (actual) – 13.8%. Some states still underperforming. Strategy still in line with timetable.

five years. After two years, the reduction is 8% lower than 2010 benchmarks.

KPI (plan) – 25 suggestions per year; 6 new innovations introduced per year in relation to
reducing waste.
