1950s in America? (10 points)

The reason why we find ourselves in a position of impotency is not because our only powerful potential enemy has sent men to invade our shores . . . but rather because of the traitorous actions of those who have been treated so well by this Nation. It has not been the less fortunate, or members of minority groups who have been traitorous to this Nation, but rather those who have had all the benefits that the wealthiest Nation on earth has had to offer . . . the finest homes, the finest college education and the finest jobs in government we can give.
This is glaringly true in the State Department. There the bright young men who are born with silver spoons in their mouths are the

Growth Plan Apex

... WEEK 2 – CASE STUDY APEX CHEMICAL CASE We learned that innovation is creating and implementing ideas that generate new customer value and/or improve the value of the firm.[1] While Apex desires to be an innovative company, I don’t believe that the only way to accomplish this is through the introduction of Compound A-115, a new electrolysis agent. It is important that Apex carefully weigh the benefits and drawbacks of their two options. Given the limited information we have, I would recommend that Apex Chemical commercialize the Compound B-227 beta-prednigone. In offering this recommendation, I would stress the fact that innovation is not simply R&D, or new product development. From an innovation perspective, the commercialization of Compound B-227 would represent a new product in a market they already serve, as well as a potential branding innovation, whereby Apex could now be marketed and viewed as a comprehensive supplier of plastic oxidizers. From a pure financial standpoint, the market for electrolysis agents is $10 million and one competitor, Hamfield, dominates the market supply. The information provided indicates that Hamfield’s customers are loyal, satisfied and, in all likelihood, would not be quick to adopt a new product such as A-115, despite its claims of superiority. Apex believes that customers would gravitate towards A-115, but we have little sense of how long this transition in product loyalty would take to transpire. Apex is not recognized in......

Reinventing the Wheel at Apex Door Company

...APPLICATION CASE #4 Reinventing the Wheel at Apex Door Company 1. What do you think of Apex’s training process? Could it help to explain why employees “do things their way” and if so, how? I think the training process at Apex has no organizational effectiveness. It’s unstructured, and there is no training documentation which makes the entire training process weak. It appears the employee does things their way because the company clearly does not have in place a structured training process. The employee assigned to perform training is likely to have very low motivation, partial training their self, and few of the necessary skills needed to train. The employee must know what an employer wants them to do and how they want them to do it. If the employee is left not knowing, then he/she is left to improvise or teach other employees "their way" of accomplishing tasks. There are no outcome measures to determine if the training was successful. 2. What role should job descriptions play in training at Apex? The job description should play a pertinent role in training at Apex because the job description defines the learning requirements for a new or transitioning employee while also setting the boundaries of employment in terms of required knowledge and skills. By understanding the job description, a trainer can utilize the information it provides to write job descriptions and job specifications, which are utilized in recruitment and selection, compensation,......

Apex Training

...Business Basics Apex Training Company As the sole proprietor of Apex, Martha has had the full responsibility of running all aspects of her company for the past six years. At the time of initial start up, the company was small and was easily managed by one person. Martha worked numerous hours as she developed her training company to structure a strategic plan that addressed her short and long term business goals. Martha, as the sole proprietor, did not have to share Apex’s earnings with anyone else. She was able to turn her profits immediately back into the company. Martha also paid lower taxes due to the fact that Apex earnings are considered her personal income. She played all roles within the company. For example, she was able to fill in when Rose, her one employee, called in sick, and still monitor all business operations. Based upon her four years experience as the vice president of marketing for a training company and the financial success she had in the position, Martha felt very comfortable stepping into the presidency of her own company. However, as her company’s revenues grow and her training requests expand, Martha is re-evaluating her business plan as well as her form of business ownership. As Martha’s accountant, I am concerned that she has reached several limitations of sole proprietorship. Marth had to take a loss the first year Apex was in business. She had to ensure that she had enough money to pay Rose, as well as the......

Joynal Hossain ID No: 25019 Department of Finance University of Dhaka Introduction Managerial economics as defined by Edwin Mansfield is "concerned with application of the economic concepts and economic analysis to the problems of formulating rational managerial decision."It is sometimes referred to as business economics and is a branch of economics that applies microeconomic analysis to decision methods of businesses or other management units. As such, it bridges economic theory and economics in practice. It draws heavily from quantitative techniques such as regression analysis, correlation and calculus. If there is a unifying theme that runs through most of managerial economics, it is the attempt to optimize business decisions given the firm's objectives and given constraints imposed by scarcity, for example through the use of operations research, mathematical programming, game theory for strategic decisions, and other computational methods. Objectives and Applied Concepts The main objective of the report is to apply some economic concepts in a particular company to......

400-600 Words, Discuss Tim's Question: Does It Make Sense for Apex to Attain Full Compliance with Sox? Why or Why Not

...Brodsky, 2004) Pros for Apex: • Meeting 302 SOX requirements opens the door for Apex to go public and obtain much needed capital from outside investors should those investors choose to take a chance on Apex and place their money in their stock. • By receiving additional funds, Apex can pursue moving into the food production markets and have a shot at greatly increasing their market share and earnings as they move through new ventures. Cons for Apex: • In order for Apex to meet SOX 302 compliance, the company's directors and officers (D&O) insurance policies will likely increase substantially. According to research of public companies meeting 302, strong companies saw an increase in premiums of 25-30% where smaller and weaker companies saw increases of as much as 400% in their D&O premiums (Cohen & Brodsky, 2004). • According to the Wall Street Journal, companies seeking compliance with 302 can expect annual increases of 25% to their overall accounting costs (Cohen & Brodsky, 2004). • Continued weakness in the markets for the past 5 years has greatly reduced the amount of investors willing to take risks on new companies. Therefore, Apex could spend millions to meet compliance with their already slim margins only to find they are not able to capture the interest of investors to substantiate and offset these costs and give them enough cash inflow to move into new territories (Richman & Richman, 2013). Therefore, the risk and the rewards for Apex must be carefully......

Team B found this opportunity to display to Apex what they can do to bring their company to enjoy the modern conveniences of a wireless network. This deployment plan will cover Team B’s recommendations based off of the site survey provided by Apex. We will discuss our recommended wireless network type. The access point layout and how these points will be managed. We will go over the foreseen obstacles and what our plan is to overcome these obstacles. Finally, we will go over the security policy that should be implemented to keep Apex as secure with our wireless network as they are with their current wired network. IEEE Network Type Apex Designs has asked our company to design a wireless network for their business. This network will consist of several different pieces of hardware that all will work together to meet Apex’s needs. To ensure that the new network is operational, special considerations must be made as to which IEEE network standard to be used. Since Apex Designs is a business that has a preexisting network installed, the new network must be compatible with the legacy systems already in use. Failure to meet this requirement would cause major interruptions in work flow, thus......

Apex Services Inc Case Study

...A. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY I recommend selecting Proposal 2's client/server model for APEX Services Inc.'s (ASI) client case management software. The proposed system is best suited for achieving competitive advantage via an agile information systems architecture. Before implementing the selected proposal, feasibility analysis should be performed, and detailed system design documents and implementation plans need to be developed. Post-system review should be conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of the new system at enabling ASI's goals. B. CURRENT SITUATION APEX Services Inc. is a business in the midst of change. Your company has succeeded in managing 29 group homes, but is now expanding into a new market, with plans for rapid growth in the prison management sector. The recommendations I make will be both to meet the company's information system needs in both the short term, and the long term. The long term goal of ASI is to gain a competitive advantage over business rivals, and thereby grow market share and profitability. For ASI, the way to achieve that goal is to develop agile information systems that can rapidly adapt to novel operating environments, as well as fluidly scale to meet the needs of additional contracts. Each managed site will have unique requirements, and ASI's information systems must be able to meet the requirements of each site in a timely, cost-effective fashion. ASI's goals are best served by Proposal 2's client/server model. This model has......

Reinventing the Wheel at Apex Door Company

...PSYCH 283 October 16, 2013 Reinventing the Wheel at Apex Door Company Apex’s training process is lacking structure which could explain the way employees are performing. If there are no set instructions or a proper explanation of how things should be done, the existing employees will do the work to the best of their ability with the knowledge they’ve had from before the job. For example, the order processing department is failing to properly use the multipage order form to Jim’s liking, because there was no training on how to properly use the form. Which is resulting in wrong customer classifications and improper order forms. The job description should include detailed descriptions of activities and job duties that are both relevant and important to the position. Once those specific activities are listed, then Apex must decipher which activities require more in depth training before starting the job and which ones can be learned through experience. To improve Apex’s current training program, I would suggest to start with a thorough needs analysis to measure the amount of money the company can allot specifically towards training, what specific tasks employees need to be trained on, and which employees need it the most. Once that is completed, Jim needs to distinguish training that would specifically benefit each separate position and then which trainings can be completed as whole with the entire organization. For example the order processing department needs......
