2 Case description
The insurance company �Caredenia� is established for more than 100 years in some Europe-an countries and has established a high reputation in the area of health insurance. Caredenia�s key to success were their very competitive products for health insurance. In benchmark tests their health insurance products were always among the very best. Therefore sales has never really been a challenge for Caredenia since customers actively approached the company for buying their products. Still, earnings were rather high.
