Alliance Design Concepts: Foreign Exchange Risk Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

Alliance Design Concepts provided audio system alternatives, which involved installing high quality sound systems in customer facilities (like large churches).

The operations supervisor had to devise a hazard alleviation strategy and business process change. Ryan Orchard is affiliated with MacEwan University.
