Baderman Island Resort The Baderman Island Resort is a luxury style resort whom depends on its elite location, all-inclusive accommodations, and cultural attractions to catch the attention of its guests. Boardman Management Group is responsible for the operations of three hotels, several restaurants, two gift shops, a golf pro shop, and a spa. Baderman Island Resort attracts events such as company retreats, conventions, expositions, and family or couple vacations; which happen to be the key of growth for the resort. To assure the attraction and maintain revenue, the resort in combination with its staff must be able to provide a luxurious environment for its recreational guests and a world-class environment for its business clientele.

Creating Alliance Baderman Island knows that their internal and external stakeholders; their employees and their guests, are the most valuable people for keeping their business a success. There are always ways to improve a business and they understand that. So the first strategy recommended for Baderman Island would be to reduce workplace stressors. Role stressors, workload, work-family conflict, job insecurity, and organizational constraints are a few workplace stressors. Some specific stressors for Baderman Island employees could be that they feel overwhelmed since there is so much future development being planned, as well as never having a quiet calm workplace since tourists are always visiting.

...Since Baderman Island has opened it had already become a premiere vacation and relaxation destination, but things are just getting started. Of the nearly 1600 acres of the island, only 750 have been developed. That means that there are still over 800 acres of wilderness and development that are still in the works. Of course this doesn’t mean that the entire island will be over-developed. We at Baderman Island have intentionally designed permanent wilderness areas – in addition to the 375 acres of the botanical gardens -- that will be integrated into the master plan of the Island.Here are just a few things that we have in the works: Pepicello Fairways are planning on adding an additional 18 holes of golf on 75 open acres adjacent to the existing golf course. This new range will be designed for those golfers seeking the additional challenge needed to drive up their game. The WIlliam C. Martin Botanical Gardens are growing. Currently the 225 acres of preserved wilderness is home to abundant wildlife, exotics plants, and colorful butterflies. In attempt to better protect the gardens, an additional 150 acre buffer area is being created around the garden. Additionally, the existing walking and hiking trails are being expanded to make for better access for wheelchairs and those guests that request golf cart accessibility. Plans are in the works to expand the Baderman Island Oasis Spa. The modest 50 acres site is being expanded by an additional 25 acres with additional facilities......

The Island

...The Island In an isolated building, thousands of people are trapped. A theory goes around this building among the people who lives there. All the people are ‘’the survivors’’, who has survived something, which has killed every other person outside the building. There is absolutely no life outside this particular building. They are lucky to be here, because they were rescued. Their only hope in life, is to win some kind of lottery, which means they are going to be moved to a sacred place called The Island, instead of living in this building, where they do everything the same way everyday. Everything in this building, which they live in, is a very sterile environment. Everything is white. Everything is placed in a special order, and everything is normal for these people. What they don’t know is, that they are actually clones. They’ve been captured, to participate in a huge experiment, made by some rich men – including a man called Dr. Merrick. From the moment they were picked, till they were ‘’born as a clone’’ they have been laid in a building with lots of clones next to each other. Every clone sees the same ‘’show’’ about how great this ‘’Island’’ is. They have been hypnotised into wanting something, they didn’t even know existed, before they were coming to this place. When they are born as clones, they all wants to go to The Island, because this should be the dream place to be. Dr. Merrick is the man who rules everything in this isolated building. He knows every......

...Description of Baderman Island Resort Located in Florida, The Baderman Islad Resort is managed by the Boardman Management Group. Baderman consists of several different entities such as hotels, restaurants, gift shops, a spa, a golf course and pro shop, and a convention center (Apollo Group, Inc., 2006). Currently, Baderman’s computer systems contain three separate operating systems (Microsoft Windows 98, Microsoft Windows 2000, and Microsoft Windows XP). These three operating systems (OS) also use three different kinds of software for word processing (Microsoft Word 97, Microsoft Word 2000, and Microsoft Word XP). Because each entity was started at different times they are operating with the OS they were given at the time of startup. This means there has been a staggered upgrading process overtime resulting in each entity using a different OS and word processing software. Statement of Purpose This document will serve as a request for proposals to provide a solution to Baderman’s word processing issue. This solution will create the mold for Baderman by which all future OS’s and WPS’s are created. The purpose is to upgrade the existing system in place at Baderman by the company chosen through this process. The areas targeted for upgrade are 1. Different WPS’s (Microsoft Word 97, Microsoft Word 2000, and Microsoft Word XP) 2.

...a. They can go public through an IPO Baderman Island Resort is a self-contained resort, surrounded by Kelsey Island. It is all inclusive resort that offers almost unlimited activities for entertainment as well as relaxation. The resort has plenty of opportunity for expansion but they have to decide which option is best for their organization. One option is through an IPO (Initial Public Offering). A SWOT analysis is the best way to investigate this option. Strengths: An IPO brings new capital quickly for expansion in order to make the resort more profitable and offer more activities for the visitors. It also makes the stock more valuable for the investors. Expansion of the resort makes the resort more appealing to the public which will in turn make more money for the resort and the investors. Weaknesses: With investors, there are more splits in the profits as well as more red tape to make decisions within the company. Although the organization is making more profits, it has to be divided amongst the investors and the company. On top of that, the organization has to answer to a board of directors in order to make changes or expansions to the property. There has to be a vote before a decision can be made to any of the existing or future amenities that the resort holds. Opportunities: With an IPO, there is opportunity to make changes to the resort. Expansion is an option which gives the company more value. This gives more stock options which in turn brings in more money.......
