Scenario:
You attend your friend's piano recital, knowing that your friend is seriously considering a career as a pianist. Her performance is unsatisfactory. She approaches you after the performance and asks, "Well, what did you think?" What should you do? * Tell her to keep her day job. * Tell her it sounded terrific. * Try to get out of it by telling her Victor Borge couldn't have done a better job. * Tell her it was pretty good, with plans to approach her later to discourage her from making a career of it. * Do something else. If so, what?

“The Five P’s Blanchard and Peale identify five P’s that need to be considered in analyzing the solution to the problem at hand: purpose, pride, patience, persistence, and perspective. The five P’s table gives a list of questions for us to answer that will help us further evaluate our solution. (Blanchard, 1988) Telling your friend to keep her day job, in my opinion, would be a rude response. I would not only hurt her feelings, but possibly discourage her from continuing her dream of being a pianist. Telling her it sounded terrific would be a lie, especially if others were talking badly about her performance. You would want to keep from hurting her feelings and then lose her confidence in your opinion, if she later found out that you really thought her performance was less than what you stated.
Telling your friend that “Victor Borge couldn’t have done a better job,” may not make any sense to her. If she takes your comment seriously, it would hurt her feelings, and possibly cost you your friendship.
If your friend values your opinion; telling her that it was pretty good, then approaching her later would be the least hurtful to your friend. Everyone can appreciate constructive criticism if it is given with discretion and kindness.
Is there another response you could use? Of course there is.…...

...Business Analysis Part II MGT521 November 14, 2011 James Bingel Business Analysis Part II Introduction This paper will provide a review of Motorola Mobility Inc.'s (MMI) financial statements to determine the financial health of the company. MMI's financial health will be compared to that of Nokia and Research in Motion (RIM), two companies within the large-cap range ($5 - $50B). A benchmarking analysis will also be performed, using Apple as the benchmark for it products, processes, and best practices. Financials Income Statement - A review of MMI's income statement reveals that it has been operating at a net loss for the last three quarters, from a net loss of eighty one million dollars for the quarter ending April 2, 2011, to a thirty two million dollar loss for the quarter ending in October 1, 2011. While it is operating at a loss, the amount of the loss has decreased the last three quarters, while revenues have been relatively flat, indicating that MMI is moving toward reducing their expenses, and may look to operate at a profit for the fourth quarter of 2011. Comparatively, Nokia has also been operating at a loss for the 2nd and 3rd quarters of 2011, and RIM has been averaging $722M in profit over the last five quarters.

Mortgage Options Analysis

...Mortgage Options Analysis Abstract You decided to buy a house in Amherst valued at $250,000 and need to borrow the entire amount to finance your house. After shopping around for a mortgage loan, you found that the following two deals from the Mortgage One Company are very attractive: Option 1: A 15-year fixed rate mortgage with no point and an APR of 5%, compounded monthly. Option 2: A 15-year fixed rate mortgage with two points and an APR of 4.5%, compounded monthly. The closing costs (not including the points) for the two loans are identical. According to the law, the interests on your mortgage payments are tax deductible. In fact, at the end of each year, your lender will simply add up your 12-month interest payments (without considering the time value of money) and forward the mortgage statement to you and the IRS for tax filing purposes. Then you file your tax form according to your income tax rate of 28%. Calculations The following assumptions were made for the calculations of mortgage amortization tables: * the amount of money needed to pay for points is available in your bank account; * Mortgage One Company does not allow you to build the point money into the mortgage; * the amount of total interest paid for year and the amount paid for points is tax deductible; * the standard tax deductions are zero, thus, you get tax savings for every dollar paid in interest and for points; * mortgage payments are at the end of each month and you......

Using Correlation Analysis

...What is the purpose of using correlation analysis? How might correlation analysis be used in business decisions or in strategy formulation and implementation? Provide an example Correlation is a synonym that describes how someone or something is similar. It can also be used to illustrate instances of similarity among situations, people, or things that are otherwise different in nature to the other situations, people, or things. Businesses can effectively use correlation analysis to determine what common factors impact undesirable outcomes so that the managers are able to make changes, and the process also helps in determining the factors that impact desirable outcomes so that managers can take note of what to continue doing. Correlation analysis basically allows those evaluating various aspects of the business to make connections by analyzing cause and effect of various outcomes. It can be used in business decisions or in strategy formulation and implementation if a business were to use it effectively.Take an example of a small business. that determined that, over the course of the last six years, the business' revenue shot up over 40% each year when the business invested in professional, targeted marketing services versus the other three years in which the business lost money or broke even when the business owner whose skill set is in construction took on the task of building the company's marketing campaign by experimenting and using new marketing software and......

Business Analysis Ii

...Business Analysis Part II Megan Exantus MGT/521 September 28, 2011 Laurie Ryan Business Analysis Financial statements are made to show a company’s financial position, performance, and changes that will be made throughout the company that may deter any economic decisions. Financial statements should be understandable, relevant, reliable and comparable. Reported assets, liabilities, equity, income and expenses are directly related to an organization's financial position (Baird, 2007). We will now evaluate the financial health of Bank of America and how it looks compared to previous years and make a prediction on coming years. This should demonstrate the financial strength and weakness of the company. We will also compare Bank of America’s financial statements to JPMorgan & Chase and Wells Fargo to see how each bank compares relatively to the other financially. After review of each of the financial statements, much of which will be gained by looking at the pros and cons of each statement, such as what strategies are used from these statements in moving forward. Not only will we establish a broader range on how these banks really look financially, we will investigate their approaches on a technological level and how they differentiate from another and how they relate. Globalization has taken over a wide range of businesses nationwide, we will take a step closer into seeing how it has affected......

5 P's of Strategy

...this field stems from contradictory and ill-defined uses of the term strategy, as we saw in the Egg McMuffin syndrome. By explicating and using five definitions, we may be able to remove some of this confusion, and thereby enrich our ability to understand and manage the processes by which strategies form. References 1. RF. Drucker, Management: Tasks, Responsibilities, Practices (New York, NY: Harper & Row, 1974), p. 104. 2. Moore, in fact, prefers not to associate the word strategy with the word plan per se: "The term plan is much too static for our purposes unless qualified. There is not enough of the idea of scheming or calculation with an end in view in it to satisfy us. Plans are used to build ships. Strategies are used to achieve ends among people. You simply do not deal strategically with inanimate objects." But Moore certainly supports the characteristics of intentionality. D.G. Moore, "'Managerial Strategies," in W.L. Warner and N.H.

Benefits Analysis Ii

...just give the opportunity for an employer to give information to their employee, but to also help build trust, along with helping establish a continuous dialogue (Ceridian Connection, 2011). Building trust is an important necessity in order to have your employees gain confidence in your abilities to communicate. Trust is ongoing and must be maintained throughout the relationship with human resource and the employee. Some of the ways trust can be built between the two departments would be to have HR continue to share with the employee the importance of using their benefits and actively showing them how to use them. One of the differences that are arising that may need some more explanation are the differences between defined benefit plans such as pensions and defined contribution plans such as 401k’s. Defined benefit plans are “An employer-sponsored retirement plan where employee benefits are sorted out based on a formula using factors such as salary history and duration of employment. Investment risk and portfolio management are entirely under the control of the company. There are also restrictions on when and how you can withdraw these funds without penalties” (Investopedia, 2011). Defined contribution plans such as 401k’s are defined as “A retirement plan in which a certain amount or percentage of money is set aside each year by a company for the benefit of the employee. There are restrictions as to when and how you can withdraw these funds without penalties”......
