ASSIGNMENT

Human Resource Management plays a critical role in realising

the organisation’s business objectives. However not many organisations have a clear human resource strategy. It is important for an organisation to align that Human Resource policies and practices to the business objectives.

Choose an organisation that you are familiar with. It could be a SME or MNC. The organisation can be the one that you are currently working in. In this case, you do not have to use the real name (unless the organisation agrees). Irrespective of whether you are studying your own organisation or not, you should check privacy and confidential issues. Answer the following questions based on your understanding of the organisation.

In order for the organisation to be competitive, it is important that the organisation has talented employees. Examine the steps the organisation use to conduct job analysis in order to determine the job description and job specifications of key positions in the organisation. Discuss FOUR(4) qualitative methods the organisation uses to collect job analysis information. If the selected company does not have a systematic process in conducting job analysis, provide recommendations how they should conduct job analysis.

Question

My son works at a local retail store during the summer college break. During the recruiting process, the human

resources staff at these stores face an information asymmetry problem — they can observe a person’s interpersonal skills during the interviews, and they can talk to former employers to learn about previous experiences. However, they cannot gather full information about current personal characteristics that are important on the job (e.g., work ethic, dedication to customer service, and emotional maturity). For this reason, some job recruiters check the social media posts for top candidates.

Is this practice unfair? Should employers use this sort of personal information to make decisions about potential work performance?

Question

Assignment: Managerial Accounting in BusinessScenario

You are the product line manager for

a snow board manufacturing company based in Provo, Utah. As product line manager for the company’s Xtreme line, you are ultimately responsible for all aspects of production as well as the profitability of the line. You have direct authority over the production, marketing and sales of the company’s Xtreme line of snowboards. The first quarter sales figures are in and you see that sales are down and in several key markets you no longer hold the #1 position. You are concerned that when you attend the quarterly management meeting that this poor performance is going to be a topic of much discussion. Several months ago, you received information from an overseas manufacturer that can manufacture the bindings for the snow board at a fraction of your current cost to produce them in-house. This will lower the cost to produce the Xtreme line allowing the company to increase their margin, lower prices to customers or some combination of both. Consequently, you believe it is now time to revisit that correspondence and start putting together a plan to address the lackluster Q1 earnings report.

Questions

1. What qualitative and quantitative factors will you have to consider before recommending that the company outsource the production of the binding component of the Xtreme snow boards?

2. What accounting information will you need in order to make the best decision for the company? When identifying the accounting information needed, indicate the following:

a. Is the information you need financial or managerial in nature?

b. How will you use the accounting information in evaluating the decision?

3. Identify any potential risks associated with making this decision and how those risks can be addressed.

Chapter 13 – According to Franks and Smallwood (2013), information has become the lifeblood of

every business organization, and that an increasing volume of information today has increased and exchanged through the use of social networks and Web2.0 tools like blogs, microblogs, and wikis. When looking at social media in the enterprise, there is a notable difference in functionality between e-mail and social media, and has been documented by research – …that social media differ greatly from e-mail use due to its maturity and stability.

Question

An investor is considering adding three new securities to his internationally focused

fixed-income

portfolio. The securities under consideration are as follows:

• 1-year U.S. Treasury note (noncallable)

• 10-year BBB/Baa rated corporate bond (callable)

• 10-year mortgage-backed security (MBS) (callable; government-backed collateral)

The investor will invest equally in all three securities being analyzed or will invest in none

of them at this time. He will make the added investment provided that the expected

spread/premium of the equally weighted investment is at least 0.5 percent (50 bps) over

the similar-term Treasury bond. The investor has gathered the following information:

Real risk-free interest rate 1.2%

Current inflation rate 2.2%

Spread of 10-year over 1-year Treasury note 1.0%

Long-term inflation expectation 2.6%

10-yr MBS prepayment risk spread (over 10-year Treasuries)∗ 95 bps

10-yr call risk spread 80 bps

10-yr BBB credit risk spread (over 10-year Treasuries) 90 bps

∗This spread implicitly includes a maturity premium in relation to the 1-year T-note as

well as compensation for prepayment risk.

Using only the information given, address the following problems using the risk premium

approach:

A. Calculate the expected return that an equal-weighted investment in the three securities

could provide.

B. Calculate the expected total risk premium of the three securities, and determine the

investor’s probable course of action.

From: Team # 1
Julio Rodriguez, Senior JR
Aneisha Jones AJ
Omar Salah OS
Jenny Brown JB
Date: October 4, 20X3
Purpose:
To document our understanding of the company’s risk of material misstatement due to fraud.
Procedures:
Our team met on October 4, 20X3 for a fraud brainstorming session. Prior to the meeting, team members
reviewed the company’s prior-year financial statements, board minutes, and current-year financial
statements.
Results:
As a result of the meeting we identified a number of risk factors. For each risk factor we discussed
information that is necessary to assess fraud risk and assessed each risk factor as high, medium or low.
The key risks are as follows: Risk #1-Improper revenue recognition. Improper revenue recognition is presumed to be a fraud
risk on all audits because of several methods of artificially inflating revenue. However, evidence
in the board minutes suggests that Apollo’s CEO appears to have a significant focus on earnings,
which indicates a relatively high potential for aggressive revenue accounting.
Risk #2-[List a fraud risk. Then elaborate on the risk, including where/how you found it.]
Risk #3Risk #4Risk #5Risk #6- [and so on for additional identified risks you want to highlight] Conclusion:
Throughout the audit we will assess audit evidence, communicate with the audit committee, and continue
to assess our audit plan. The results of our fraud assessment will continue to be updated in the audit files
throughout the engagement.

Question

4

Reading 3 discusses how subordinates will sometimes willfully engage in distortion with their superiors. What motivates subordinates to engage in upward distortion and how can it negatively impact an organization? From your perspective, what could a superior do to reduce the prevalence of upward distortion?

Question 4

There are several reasons why employees engage in distortion with their superiors such as no one wants to be the bearer of bad news, where that was caused by them or by others, so employees distort information. The second reason is that, if the negative news is related to a performance of their supervisor they do not want to seem like they are criticizing him/ her so they distort the information, the third one is a combination of factors such as the need for promotion, level of trust and motivation.

Upward distortion will have a negative effect on an organization because the management will not be aware of what is going on in the company. Things will be vague so when decisions are passed, they might not be the right decision because the manager is not aware of the whole situation so they will not have the intended effect.

I think having an open-door policy where employees are encouraged to talk openly without facing consequences is a good way to battle upward distortion. The other thing is having an anonymous way for employees to share information with their managers.

Question

Explain three benefits that control can provide in support of

stronger organisation performance?

11.3 Organisational control systems
LEARNING OBJECTIVE 11.3 What control systems are used in organisations?
Each component in an organisation’s control systems should contribute to maintaining predictably high
levels of performance. Internal control should be encouraged and supported; external control should
be appropriate and rigorous. The management process provides for a certain amount of control when
planning, organising and leading are well done. Additional and comprehensive control is provided by
appropriate systems such as those dealing with remuneration and benefits, employee discipline, financial
information and operations management.
Remuneration and benefits
Base remuneration plays an important role in attracting a highly qualified workforce to the organisation.
If remuneration is attractive and competitive in the prevailing labour markets, it can make the organ-
isation highly desirable as a place of employment. If employers get the right people into jobs, costs are
reduced and productivity is boosted over the long term. Generally, more capable people exercise a higher
level of self-control. When the wage and salary structure of an organisation is unattractive and uncom-
petitive, however, it will be difficult to attract and retain highly competent workers. The less capable the
workforce, the greater the burden on external controls to ensure that desired levels of performance are
achieved and maintained.
The use of incentive remuneration systems also helps. When properly implemented, ‘pay-for-
performance’, ‘performance-related pay’ and ‘merit pay’ plans serve as control systems. They can be
strong influences on individual and group behaviour. The logic typically used is quite straightforward,
as described this way by a corporate executive: ‘Pay very poorly for poor performance; pay poorly
for average performance; pay well for above-average performance; pay obscenely well for outstanding
performance.quot;However, the global financial crisis brought widespread cynicism about senior bank
executives rewarding themselves with millions of dollars in bonuses while they brought the global finan-
cial system to its knees. There is trenchant criticism in business publications of executives being paid

Question

I’m not sure if i allocated the cost of the machine correctly. Does that go right into fixed cost like i have it

below in my answer?

Data for the question:

David and his family love root beer. There is an empty area in the current microbrewery facility that could be dedicated to making root beer. As a result, David has been talking with his family about producing and selling a line of specialty root beer. Root beer would be produced using different machinery rather than the existing five beer machines. David’s sister knows someone who is getting out of the soda business and would be willing to sell the used machinery needed to make the root beer for $8,000. Based on market research he has done, David thinks that he could charge $16.50 per case of root beer. Based on the same market research, there is a lot of uncertainty in how many cases of root beer the company could sell. David is less familiar with the root beer market and there is a wide range in sales of specialty root beer in the local groceries. Based on his understanding of the market, he thinks he could sell between 2,500 and 10,000 cases of root beer per year with likely sales of about 5,000 cases.

Root beer could be sold to some of his current distributors. However, soda does not need to be sold through the three-tier system that is required for alcohol sales. Therefore, much of the root beer sales would be directly to upscale groceries such as La Grande Orange Grocery and Pizzeria in Phoenix and Whole Foods and AJ’s Fine Foods with locations throughout Arizona. David could produce the root beer in-house or out-source the production. David has talked with another company who could produce the root beer for TM using David’s recipe and TM could sell it as their brand (this option is referred to as private label). It could be purchased from this other company for $13.25 per case. TM would still need to incur some variable handling costs and some minor fixed costs. Alternatively TM could produce the root beer in house. See Exhibit 3 for estimated cost information.

1. Analyzing the sales forecast for root beer, what preliminary course of action do you recommend (in-house or out-source production) and why? Support your recommendations with numbers.

Here’s my answer: (I’m not sure if the $8000 machine cost goes right to ‘direct fixed cost’ in the Alternative 1 below)

David should outsource the making of the root beer since at his lower volume projections he would still turn a profit whereas with owning the equipment he would have a $18,625 loss. Also at his most likely scenario with selling 5,000 cases, hes still making almost double the profit by outsourcing the production. My advice to David would be to outsource production and if volumes increase past 5,000 he should re-analyze his situation and based on volume he might purchase a machine and produce in-house in the future but to start out he should outsource the production.

Question

The flow of information throughout an organization is an important factor in its success, but Mintzberg believes

those involved have to gain experience in various roles at different levels as well.

In an interview with CNN, he stated: You can teach all sorts of things that improve the practice of management with people who are managers. What you cannot do is teach management to somebody who is not a manager … you cannot teach surgery to somebody who’s not a surgeon.

Does this suggest also that a manager cannot hope to understand those on the lower rungs without having gained experience there?

Hello here I have a sample law essay question I’m having trouble identifying and spotting all the issues that

Martha Stewart, the heroine of home life, is arrested and charged with the crime of quot;insider tradingquot; of
stock in Martha Stewart, Inc. In the course of the trial, Martha testifies under oath. When asked if she
ever bought or sold stock on the basis of inside information, Martha states: quot;I have never traded stock
using insider information but Oprah trades all the time using such information. Oprah consults a psychic
who reads the Wall Street Journal and quot;seesquot; into the company’s secret financial information. Oprah
then trades stock based on this information.quot;
Nick Nosey is a reporter at the trial. He knows for a fact that Oprah Winfrey would never use inside
information as the basis of a stock trade- in fact, he knows that Oprah does not own and never has
owned any stock at all. Nonetheless, he captions his daily newspaper column on the Stewart trial with
the phrase quot;Martha Stewart Accuses Oprah of Insider Tradingquot;. In the article, Nosey merely repeats the
headline and then writes about the lawyer’s summations and a description of Ms. Stewart’s outfit and
demeanor. Nosey wrote that Ms. Stewart seemed nervous and distracted when asked about the stock
transactions that were the basis of her arrest.
1. Oprah Winfrey is furious. She consults you, a lawyer who specializes in Defamation lawsuits,
about the possibility of suing Martha Stewart and Nick Nosey for defamation. What would you
advise Ms. Winfrey? Be sure to discuss fully and consider any defenses defendants might raise.
2. Martha Stewart consults you, a lawyer who specializes in Defamation lawsuits, about the
possibility of suing Nick Nosey for his statement that Ms. Stewart seemed quot;nervous and
distracted.quot; Ms. Stewart says this makes it sound as though she were not telling the truth at
trial. What would you advise Ms. Stewart? Be sure to discuss fully and consider any defenses
that Nosey could raise.

Question

Decision making case, differential profit analysis:

Breckitt Inc. provides water treatment

supplies to cities and counties. The product development dept. has developed two potential new products: one is a new organic chemical compound that will bind with heavy metals and then be filtered out of the water, and the other is a plant-based filter that will actually filter out the metals. The products are similar enough to be produced on existing equipment, but the company would not be able to produce both of them. Breckitt projects the following revenue and cost information for each of the products:

Organic chemical compound product:

Sales Price: $2,450/container

Total sales in Year 1: 15,000 containers

Direct materials: $230/container

Direct Labor: $15/hour, each container requires 12 hours of direct labor

Variable overhead allocation: $50/direct labor hour

Plant based filter product:

Sales Price: $2,600/filter

Total sales in Year 1: 25,000 filters

Direct materials: $150/filter Direct Labor: $15/hour, each filter requires 25 hours of direct labor

Variable overhead allocation: $50/direct labor hour

Question

Please apply Rawl’ theory of justice or Nozick’ rule as to whether Alex should open the folder or not in

the following case

Alex Franklin, a project manager at APEX, a small computer company that provides software solutions to local banks, was faced with a serious decision that could potentially move his career in a completely new direction. Franklin had been quite successful ever since he started working for the company; however, his main goal was to be promoted to a position in the senior management, which he believed could only be accomplished if he would get the First Street Bank’s account. The bank had established a solid reputation and was well-known for its fair practices and integrity. In order to select the best software firm, the First Street Bank announced that it would utilize a secret bidding process. APEX faced only one major competitor in this process which was the Computer Solutions, a company that had been on the market for a shorter period of time but was, however, able to develop quite successful software and thus, secures its position on the market. Shortly before the final bid deadline, Alex Franklin and his two assistants were invited to the First Street Bank’s vice president’s office, where they were unexpectedly offered an opportunity to look at the folder that contained all the bidding information of their main competitor.

1) Christianity and Islam

are completely different and incompatible religions. Assess the validity of this statement and defend your position with specific evidence.

2) A Muslim and a Christian walk into a juice bar…You are the Muslim, and the Christian asks you to explain Islam. You are responsible for presenting

Islam to them in a way they can understand. Explain the basics, the similarities and the differences and if/why they matter.

Topic one, like the first essay, asks you to compare two religious traditions. However, rather than simple asking for a comparison, it asks that you judge someone else’s statement about their compatibility. In your essay, present a thesis/claim and defend that claim withconcrete evidence and explanation. In addition,be sure you articulate how you are interpreting the two different aspects of the comparison: completely different and incompatible.

The second topic involves both a clear explanation of one religion and a presentation of that religion in a way that a person from another religion can understand. So, clearly and convincingly outline your religion of choice. While doing so, explain/compare, using terms and concepts that the other person can understand and appreciate. Remember also to be sensitive and respectful in your presentation, both of your religion of choice and of the religion of your conversation partner. For this paper,

I expect you to cite the reading! All the information you need should be in the readings (if you want to consu an outside source, please clear it with me first).The papers will be graded according to the following criteria:

1)Critical Comprehension: Does the paper demonstrate clear understanding of the given topic and critical analysis of key aspects of that topic? (25%)

Need help wording my answers better for communications class

Question

Need help wording my answers better for communications class; below are questions regarding the course my answers

are below the questions, just want to be able to better word my answers.

  • What works, what doesn’t?

I fe as the discussions did not only help the communication between my fellow students but also to get a different perspective on their thoughts for the subject that week. It gave me a different point of view and times helped me understand the reading, lesson in a different way. this also helping me understand and see the difference in cuure even here in our class.

  • will update all the lectures? Any suggestions? Longer/shorter? Only voice PowerPoint?

I actually enjoyed the video lectures, it fe as being in a classroom without having to leave my home. I have to take online classes due to my children being so young and sometimes miss out on the actual classroom feel. I enjoyed being able to have another form of learning besides the textbook.

  • How was the text? Did you actually read?

I did read the textbook, found it interesting and informative, it was filled with information and I especially enjoyed the summary’s at the end of the chapter.

  • What about the module Assignments? Quizzes?

As you stated this was a fast course and therefore work was a lot heavier than most courses. I believe this is the first course I fe a bit overwhelmed in. I took summer courses that were also fast course but for some reason I fe this one was than I struggled more with. The assignments were lengthy and with the amount of work given I fe as it should have been worth more points. The quizzes were the same as other courses, self explanatory the only difference was that these were timed and I fe as that didn’t give me enough time to write on the essay portions.

  • How’s the workload (remember, this is a condensed course)? It is supposed to be heavier than normal.

The workflow kept me on my toes, I tried to stay on top of the assignments and to keep that A but the amount of work was a bit overwhelming for me. I must admit that I fe a bit down after working so hard to keep up and somehow wasn’t able to. Its understanding that due to the time we have for this class this is un-avoidable.

  • If you’re familiar with other online courses, how did this course compare?

As stated before this was oddly enough the one course I have struggled the most with, the course wasn’t hard to follow it was just an overwhelming amount of work.

Scenario A new owner has purchased Swagger Distribution Company a company that distributes clothing and apparel

Question

Scenario: A new owner has purchased Swagger Distribution Company, a company that distributes clothing and apparel.

She does not have experience with IT related

problem solving, so she is contracting you, as an IT consuant, to help. For Milestone Three, you will submit a document that suggests web technologies

for the company’s new website and that summarizes recommendations for information security practices for the distribution company and provides an example

of information security assurance failure. Take a moment to read the Final Project Guidelines and Rubric to see how the following information applies to the final

project, and then proceed to do the following for Milestone Three:

Web Technologies: Swagger Distribution is in the process of designing a new website using HTML5 (HyperText Markup Language).

For this area of the assignment:

 Write two to three sentences describing why a new Swagger website is important.

 Using the 15 Core Web Functionalities resource, create a bulleted list of 10 key functioning components of a website. Next to each function, add a

sentence or two about why this function is important. Ensure that you use the terminology discussed during the web technologies module. (Note:

CONTENT such as an About Us page, Contact page, or information on a page is not considered a functioning component.)

 Briefly describe a current real-world website that is using at least two of the components you suggested above.

 Provide a screenshot of this website, pointing out with circles or arrows the two components you are describing. (You can provide two websites if you

cannot find one that has both.)

Information Security: There is no current information security standard at Swagger Distribution. You know that one needs to be implemented.

For this area of the assignment:

 Describe the importance of information security for an organization, supporting with evidence. How could a lack of security affect not only consumers,

but a company as well?

 Summarize two key information security practices you recommend the company implement.

 Provide supporting examples/research/justification using a real-world example (e.g., when a real company was hacked and what the outcomes were).

 Be sure to use appropriate IT terminology for security assurance.

Guidelines for Submission: Written components of the project must follow these formatting guidelines when applicable: double spacing, 12-point Times New
Roman font, and one-inch margins. The paper should be 1 to 2 pages in length, not including cover page and resources, and written in paragraph form.
