History of Disney Company
An American company that has ventured into multinational mass media, the company has
its headquarters in Burbank, California. Its establishment was as a result of two brothers Walt and
Roy Disney; their first studio was situated in Los Angeles before it later moved to Burbank
California. It operated under the name Walt Disney Studios which then later became the Walt
Disney Productions and then to its collective identity of Walt Disney company a name it bears up
to date. The company has gone through drastic improvements in its service provision to have it
reach the standard it has in the present mass media platform (Zipes, 2016).
It began by airing out cartoon shows, one of its works that lead to its emergence featured
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs; it was the demand for this first full-length animation works
that sparked the interest of the public to purchase it. Walt given the escalating demand decided to
expand his studio along with his activities in animation; he delved into much production with the
help of his brother Roy to overcome all odds.
Walt’s early experience was an eye opener for him since it hardened him for the
unfavorable involvement in the World War I; during this period he entirely ceased from his
animation and artwork and joined the rest in the fight for their country. The way to fame was not
an easy one for the Disney brothers; they faced a variety of criticism from their viewers as well as
from their competitors (Zipes, 2016). The brothers did not give room for their critics but rather
ventured into new methodologies that would see them raise the ranks in this industry.
The company has long diversified and entered into other forms of business to finance its
extra activities that would help the firm grow in its full capability. Over the years the company has
also acquired different types of companies that enable it to carry out its expansion strategies with
ease. It has also engaged in global activities that have given it an upper hand against its
competitors, this is advantageous since it helps the company enjoy economies of scale across all
spheres.
Current events
The Disney Company has faced a variety of challenges that have helped it positively and
negatively as well, the events that unfold following the demise of the core founders has changed
MANAGEMENT

it significantly. One of these issues is the change in the management body; the new executive
officers have built a good rapport with its consumers thus building on a strong consumer base. At
some point in the late twenty-first century the management experienced leadership disagreements
that resulted in breaking ups, Eisner in the process acquired leadership role from Miller, this
impacted the company positively since Eisner embraced expansion into other fields (Latif, 2014).
The second event involves participation in other forms of businesses, for instance, the
establishment of Disney theme parks in essential towns such as Hong Kong, Paris, and Tokyo.
These institutions featured other recreational facilities such as virtual-reality arcades; the impact
of these ventures is the expansion of revenue sources as well as the creation of employment to
those who live in those towns. The third event includes the partnerships and acquisitions that the
company has had in the past few years, brands such as Lucasfilm and VICE are big brands that
have expanded the operations of the company thus improving on the revenue accumulation (Latif,
2014).
Economic conditions
Political instability is among the economic turmoil that Disney as a company faces, when
a government is unable to control opposition leaders, instability brings about changes in the foreign
currency. Health concerns on the employment of staff are also a big challenge for the company,
meaning in cases of disease outbreak it becomes challenging to manage and run the business
successfully. Technological advancement is a significant opportunity for the company since it
helps in meeting the consumers’ unlimited demand of releasing films at the appropriate time.
If I were the chief executive officer of the company, I would utilize the existing innovations
and creations in the technological world to ensure I meet the various needs of my customers. When
it comes to solving issues with regards to health, I will make sure that all my employees have
insurance covers so that in cases of disease outbreaks or natural calamities then they would be
accorded right health attention that will see them return to work soon. Solving unemployment
concerns as a manager, I would expand on more branches that will absorb new and fresh graduates
into the company (Cramer, 2017).
Corporate Social Responsibility of Disney
MANAGEMENT
4
As one of the leading players in the entertainment industry, much is expected of the
company with regards to giving back to the society, the company has participated in various social
activities that include; environmental conservation, volunteer activities as well as labor standards.
The firm volunteered its services during the Haiti earthquake in the year 2010, which resulted in
their receipt of corporate social responsibility award (Cramer, 2017). The company has also
participated in a variety of charity activities that have built on their goodwill; consumers of Disney
products have established good rapport with its items given the charity engagements of the
company.
Business structure
Disney has a business structure that is hierarchical; the management moves from top to
bottom even though a majority of the powers is vested in the board of directors who spearhead the
functions and activities of the company in entirety. The structure takes to account the even
distribution of power as required by the law; this is advantageous in the sense that power is not
wholly vested in an individual but widely spread over many people. One setback for this particular
structure is that before making a decision, a lot of time is consumed, it is also easy for an individual
to disagree with those who they do not appreciate (Gamble, 2014).
The company’s ranking is among the top performing firms among them Amazon and Apple
who have been big players in the industry, the revenues of the business have become one of the
most driving things that have led to its ranking in the leading positions. The sales turnover has
been rated over 10 million consecutively for almost three decades, in the year 2010 the rankings
fell at fifty and below.
Disney Human Resource Management
The vision and mission statements for Disney company states the overall objective the firm
desires to give to the general public. The mission announces its long-term strategy of being one of
the leading providers of entertainment in the whole world by considering a portfolio of brands and
provision of quality services by developing a creative and innovative platform (Latif, 2014).
Walt Disney Company had its first chief executive officer who was also the founder run the
business from the early stages all the way to the point that it gained stability against its competitors.
MANAGEMENT

Walt had a humble background that nurtured him for the future life as an entrepreneur; he began
business at such a tender age even before he joined a school. Walt partnered with a friend who he
later cut connections with to go and start a business with his brother in Hollywood; he leads the
company up to the year 1966 when he died from lung cancer.
Eisner one of the executive officers who once disagreed with the board and took the mantle
from Miller is another of the executives that have had the chance to build the company into
exceptional levels. Eisner is among the executive officers that have had the best experiences in
advancing the company into a global hub; he has been able to make potential partnership with
other organizations (Latif, 2014).
The chief executive officer of Disney Iger earns a salary of $ 46.5 million a base salary of
2.5 million dollars; he enjoys awards and stock options of the company that is worth seventeen
million dollars and approximate 20 million dollars incentives. The company also offers pensions
and insurance plans that are beneficial to its employees especially in situations when health issues
arise, the company has lately diversified the level of job vacancies which has risen across the
overall businesses. One of the vacant positions is the manager in information technology, fashion
designer, and photographers.
Disney Company Operations
Disney Company primarily was begun as a service provider of entertainment; it later
diversified into a more detailed company that provides other services in the media industry. Other
than this it also provides services in places such as in Tokyo in Japan, Paris in France and Hong
Kong in China. The company offers media services, parks and resorts, interactive media and
consumer products. The segments are a means of maximizing revenues for the company entirely.
The company does not export or import any of its services but instead participates in a
global market where it avails its services directly to its target market of family consumers. The
exportation and importation procedures is not a good idea for a company that has diversified, a
firm like Disney should only consider availing its products and services on every continent (Latif,
2014). In its service provision the company has not been in a position of outsourcing employees,
but instead, it recognizes training its employees as well as participates in responsible sourcing.
MANAGEMENT

Market and industry
They are several brands associating with Walt Disney Company. The company has
acquired many other corporations such as Marvel Entertainment, Touchstone Pictures, Hollywood
Records and many others. Disney bought Marvel for billions of dollars. Consumers recognize it
for its comics which were somehow realistic with their characters changing into an extraordinary
circumstance. Another brand owned by the Disney Company is called Touchstone pictures. Their
first filmed that was aired in the touchstone picture is the splash which was a massive success.
The Walt Disney Company was mainly created to satisfy their client with consumer
products, whether they were individuals or large corporations. The company’s corporate customers
are Re-sellers such as Toys R Us. They majorly sell the Disney brands toys from their many
product lines. In the past few years, they are some re-sellers who have decided to be Regular
Disney business clients. The Disney companies also target individuals such as children and
mothers who watch their films. Children love to watch a cartoon and other teen movies that are
the product of Walt Disney Company (Cramer, 2017).
The Disney Corporation has been ranked high on the various top lists of the world with
most reputable companies. In the Year 2017, Walt Disney Company was ranked third in the annual
survey which was published in the Forbes magazine. The Disney Company has a primary standard
industrial classification code that is 4841. The company has been known for its film and TV
production also theme parks. Walt Disney faces some stiff competition around the world; they
include; Viacom, time warner, 21st-century fox, CBS and many others. The companies compete
with Disney majorly on TV, cable, and even media markets.
Disney Company Financial Analysis
The company’s stock is publicly traded ever since it had its first initial public offering of
its shares; the company trading in public stocks has helped it build its customer base. The stock
prices for the company have always maintained a constant level of $ 19.9 per share; these rates
have attracted many potential investors who would wish to trade in the company’s stocks. The
stock prices have always made it possible keeping up in the market by just maintaining a constant
rate in the stock exchange. The firm offers stocks in the form of dividends to its leading employees
so that they can hold shares provided by the company at the stock exchange.
MANAGEMENT

Conclusion
It is evident that the company has had a variety of changes in the manner in which it
conducts its activities, in comparison to the early years of its inception it has been able to advance
in almost all its operations. The company has even further gone ahead to diversify its business by
engaging in other forms that expand on its revenue base, other than entertainment the company
also embraces; consumer products, parks, resorts, and interactive media houses as additional forms
of businesses in its portfolio (Gamble, 2014).
The management body is very competent in its capacity, and both the board of directors as
well as the managing authority work hand in hand to ensure that the business is thriving in all its
activities. Proper compensation plans are guaranteed to the top employees to retain them in the
company for their professional service provision and loyalty to the company. The company also
engages in responsible sourcing which is an indication that it participates in the global market with
other big players in the industry. One area worth noting is the technological department, the world
is radically advancing technologically and to compete favorably with other players the company
will require having on board innovators and creators to help it rise to the ranks with technology
masters (Gamble, 2014).
