When FarmCot Foods was founded five years ago, it was a small shop set up by a family of dairy farmers in a disused farm shed, selling their own produce to the local community. The family had decided, at that point in time, to diversify their dairy farming activities into also selling their own milk, cheese and ice cream products. The aim was to increase their revenues, as dairy farming in their home country had been in decline for a number of years.
Since then, the shop has been very successful and has expanded rapidly over the last three years, due largely to a strong growth in tourism in its home country and a shift in consumer demand for locally sourced fresh farm products. FarmCot Foods is now located in a large purpose-built building on the site of the original farm shed and also operates a very popular café, a children’s play area and sells a much wider range of products and gifts, which are all sourced from local suppliers.
Which of the following best describes FarmCot Foods approach to strategy development in the last five years?

YZ operates a national mobile phone (cell phone) network in one country. It is considering upgrading its network to 4th Generation (4G) by providing an improved bandwidth that will enable its customers faster access to the Internet.

This is due to management having informed institutional investors that a rival is already offering 4G and that this is taking customers away from YZ because its network is now regarded as too slow. YZ’s remaining customers have shown a willingness to pay extra for 4G and overall the investment will have a positive net present value. Which of the following statements are correct?
