ExxonMobil is the largest publicly traded oil and gas producing company. ExxonMobil does business in 200 countries world-wide (1). Some countries are designated for exploring gas and petroleum, and some are designated for manufacturing chemicals, lubricants, and market fuels (1). ExxonMobil's world-class petroleum portfolio gives access to proven reserves of 21.9 billion oil-equivalent barrels of oil and gas, which is the highest in the industry (1). The company's discovered resources consist of 72 billion oil equivalent barrels of oil and gas. On average, each day, they produce 2.5 million barrels of oil and 10.5 billion cubic feet of gas (4). Their asset base, includes more than 60,000 production wells in 1,800 fields in 25 countries.
firms It has been suggested that the disappointing performance of U.S. firms during the 1980s in technology-intensive, global markets was from failure to improve upon products and processes. It has been cited that "the U.S. makes the breakthroughs, while other countries, especially Japan, provide the follow-through." Revolutionary innovation has been contrasted with less dramatic advancements. Incremental improvement can turn products over and get more, newer models out. This may all sound dull, but the achievements can be exhilarating. American firms may have failed to follow up on their breakthroughs with such continuous improvements. Where there were successes, they were built upon a combination of breakthroughs and incremental improvements. It is the subject of yet another discourse as to what constitutes an innovation: a breakthrough or an incremental improvement, or both, and/or everything in between. 4. To take advantage of opportunity It is no surprise that surprises, often disappointing surprises, are the seeds of innovation. Take the oil companies. It is no surprise that some oil companies are becoming oil-andgas companies. Why? Because gas is found more often and in greater abundance than oil
CNS noticed a need and studied it. They became experts in their target industry. They found what their customers wanted and fulfilled their need in a very unique way. A way that was quickly adapted. CNS was strategic with all their marketing and marketed in a way that would allow them to stand out and be not only noticed but sought as a problem solver. CNS focus is to build and grow business around innovative products.
For Netflix, Inc. the major focus of this challenge would be staying ahead of the technology curve. Researchers for the organization must always keep an eye out for innovative technologies that are emerging in the consumer market. It may even be wise for the organization to research various companies that are on the verge of launching new media devices so that a contract can be made prior to the introduction of the product. For example, currently there is no specific device developed to allow the streaming of online media in the backseat of a car. If a company were to develop such a device then it would be beneficial for Netflix, Inc. to go into contract with that company so that its media-streaming service could be accessed from the car.

Another important resource that Exxon possesses is the presence of human expertise capital throughout the company (Datamoitor, 2008). Exxon employs many scientists and engineers that are researching and finding new ways to gain access to more energy resources and make the new innovations less harmful to the environment (Annual Report, 2007). This human capital has proven to be a very important resource for the company as shown by their development of new ways to increase liquid natural gas supplies and “enhancing heavy oil recovery” (Annual Report, 2007). Using the VRINE model again, I will assess this resource.
Gainesboro had possessed the capacity to keep up its position as an industry pioneer in the CAD/CAM showcase. The case shows how expanded market passage and rivalry can make a difficult for organizations and put descending weight on profit. The outcome is that if an organization like Gainesboro is to have a battling chance they should be original and concocted items that test
We now know that oil companies resort to buying and creating smaller companies in order to keep making money even in difficult times. What if instead of buying container companies, making office equipment, attempting to buy circuses, and buying each other, these businesses created new companies to help fund, research, and develop cleaner, more abundant, or renewable energy technologies. It is evident that their main prerogative is making money. There is money to be made buy manufacturing and selling wind turbines, solar panels, and alternative fuels such as bio fuels and hydrogen cells. Some oil companies have already begun delving into alternative energy research and production. Chevron is leading the energy reform by slowly switching to cleaner fuels and energies. A small step that they have taken thus far is to extract natural gas from shale rock. Shale rock is much more abundant than oil found in oil fields reducing the need to drill for oil by a substantial amount. A page
The company employs numerous petroleum engineers who examine geological samples to determine if there are oil & gas properties to be developed and produced around the world.
