Read the case and answer the following questions.
- Should Icebreaker enter the China market in 2007? What are the “Whys” and “Why Nots” for entering China?
- How urgent is it for Moon to make a China entry decision? What are the “minimum launch criteria” and the “minimum 5-year objectives” that Moon should have to enter China in 2007?
- What makes Icebreaker “different” in the mind of the customer? Why do U.S. and European customers buy Icebreaker products? Why will customers in China? (Note: It might be helpful to assess who were Icebreaker’s core customers in 2001, in 2006, and who they will be in 2011.)
- What is the “the least” information Moon needs to make a decision? How can he get that information?
- What has made Icebreaker successful in the past? What will make Icebreaker successful in the future?
