...Purchasing Ethics CASE Scenario 1 Bryan Janz was just arriving back from lunch when his office phone rang. It was his wife, Nina, calling from home. Nina told Bryan that FedEx had just delivered a package addressed to her. The package contained a beautiful clock now sitting over the fireplace. In fact, Nina said, “the clock looks absolutely beautiful on our living room fireplace”. Thinking the clock was from a family member, Bryan asked who sent the present. She said she did not recognize the name—the clock was from Mr. James McEnroe. Bryan immediately told Nina that she had to repack the clock because it was from a supplier who has been trying to win business from Bryan’s company. They definitely could not accept the clock. Nina was very upset, and responded that the clock was perfect for the room and, besides, the clock came to their home, not to Bryan’s office. Because of Nina’s attachment to the clock, Bryan was unsure about what to do. Assignment 1. What should Bryan do about the clock? 2. What does the Institute of Supply Management (formerly the NAPM) code of ethics say about accepting supplier favors and gifts? 3. Why do you think the supplier sent the clock to Bryan’s home and addressed it to his wife? 4. Does the mere act of sending the clock to Bryan mean that Mr. McEnroe is an unethical salesperson? Scenario 2 Lisa Jennings thought that at long last, her company, Assurance Technologies, was about to win a major contract......

Starbucks: Internal Assesssment of Strategic Variables

...Political factors include areas such as environmental law, labour law, trade restriction and tax laws etc. to defend against such risk, Starbuks have to do some some background research about indias’ market and from that, they can assess and evaluate all the the level of political risk in the country before setting up operations. Another way Starbucks to defend against political factors is to negotiate terms and conditions in which they will operate so that in the event something disrupt operations there would be legal basis for recourse. The economic conditions of the country of interest is a treat to entrants in that market; such factors as interest rates, exchange rates and inflation will impact on the company given the nature of businees or industry they are in. With inflation and fluctuating exchange rate it will be costly for Starbucks to import coffee beans, they would have to consider buying coffee beans locally from small farmers and aslo provide funding to these small farmers to make farming improvements to cultivate better quality coffee beans given the economic conditions affecting them as well; this would be on a long-term basis for Starbucks. Number 2 Technology can translate into significant opportunity for Starbucks given that india is not technologically. Tapping into a market like this offering technological services at shops will send a strong message to customers as well as rivals. For Starbucks to leverage technology, they will have to ensure that......

Livermore, Henry Ford Community College, USA Marla G. Scafe, Walsh College, USA Linda S. Wiechowski, Walsh College, USA David J. Maier, Henry Ford Community College, USA ABSTRACT The purpose of this study was to evaluate students’ perceptions of their peer’s credibility based on email addresses. The survey was conducted at a community college in Michigan where all students were registered and actively taking at least one course. The survey results show that a student’s selection of an email address does influence other students’ perception of their credibility. An email address that consists of a nickname reduces the student’s perception of peer credibility. Keywords: Student Credibility; Email Address; Peer Credibility; Online Education INTRODUCTION T here is a growing trend toward online education. Schools find that there is a financial incentive and students appreciate the convenience and freedom of not being tied to set class times and locations.

Online students complete group assignments and may even be asked to assess the course work of their peers. Some students question the credibility of their peers’ ability to perform in these roles......

D2 Evaluate the Adequacy of Accounting Ratios as a Means of Monitoring the State of the Business in a Selected Organisation, Using Examples:

...the ratios in all business in the world are very vital to the business as it helps the business understand how they are perfoming and understnad their financial data. By using ratios the business is able to compare data from the current year with the previous years. for this businees,we will be able to know if they are making more profit or a loss or if they just broke even. There are four types of ratios that a business has to calculate. These are things like investment ratio, financial ratio, profitability ratio and utilization ratio. From the results shown you can see if the business profits are increasing which is a positive thing and shows the company is on a rise and they are making money, this is a steady rise in the company’s money. If the results show a decrease it means that the company is making a loss. another one you can evaluate is the net profit margin as this is helpful as it shows how profitable the company has been throughout the years and whether it is increasing in profit or not. Current ratio is the most effective because it shows you whether you can have enough money to pay back your debts. The ratio shows that they have more liabilities it means they would struggle to pay off their debts. A figure below one means that the business does not have enough current assets to pay off its debts, a figure between 1 and 1.5 means that they have just enough assets at the moment to pay off their debts and a figure that is above 1.5 means that the business......

Tesco Policy Act

...part of the selection process it is one of the most important parts of the prcess becasue without it a business will not get any applicants. Job adverts help a business to make people aware that they have a job vacancy, also a job advert contains information about the vacancy therefore it will then atract the right people. Furthermore when a business creates job adverts they must try to consider all legislations and ethical issues because if they dont a business can be sued and will have to pay a lot of money. National minimum Wage in the UK National minimum wage is the wage that employees would get, these figures are released by the government and the wages do vary depending on the age of the employees. For a businees like Tescos it is important that they but the correct wages that match the national minimum wage and so they should familiarize themselves with the rates before they create their job advert because the rates always change. In addition if a business puts the wrong wage rate for example it might be too low this can lead to the business getting sued and also they would have to pay to cahnge all their job advertisements which would increase expenses. Sex Discrimination Act 1995/97 Sex discrimintion is when someone is victimized for their gender, this act is most common with girls because 20 years ago most women were housewifes however now most women are not getting employed just like men and so it is important......

Assumptions Assumptions in developing a funds flow statements as (shown in exhibit # 2) are that data presented in the case are accurate. Butler Lumber is dealing with changes in business risk. Increasing the internal financial risk by borrowing more money from the bank, Butler Lumber is also increasing total risk of the company. Conclussions and Recommendations Mr. Butler bought out his equity partner Mr.Stark in order to incorporated the business. However, Mr. Butler became partner with the bank and had to take out long term secure loan. As his businees was booming, Mr.Butler kept increasing his debt at a faster pace than increasing his sales. I would recommend to Mr. Butler to take advantage of the extended line of credit from Northrop National Bank. In order to be able to pay out the loan he would have to increase the amount of sales, decrease the operating expenses and decrease the amount of inventories. Butler should also hire commission based sales representative in order to expand the business to the other parts of the large city where his business is located. The increase in sales should out-grow the cost of additional employee. Even in the case of an economic downturn his business wuld be protected because 55% of its sales are from the repair market and that’s......
