...rewards such as pay are tied closely to performance called performance-reward contingency, intrinsic motivation, which is the desire to perform a task because it is enjoyed, can decrease. Steers and Black (1994) further maintained that extrinsic rewards are administered by sources external to the individual and their effectiveness rests on accurate and fair monitoring, evaluation and administration. Most behaviors in organizational settings are motivated by money or at least by monetary factors. Money serve several important functions in work settings such as being a goal or an incentive, a source of satisfaction, an instrument for gaining other desired outcomes, a standard of comparison for determining relative standing or worth and a conditional re-enforcer where its receipt is contingent upon a certain level of performance. Gupta and Mitra (1998), using meta-analysis found that financial incentives are strong motivators. They found that financial incentives were particularly powerful with respect to performance. Steers and Black (1994) reiterated that intrinsic rewards are a function of self-monitoring, evaluation, and administration. Consequently, these rewards often are less costly and more effectively administered. Lewis in 2004 (as cited by Cook & Macauly, 2008) sums this up well when he says that employees are less motivated by money than by fulfilling their need to contribute and to be valued. This in turn leads them to deliver quality service. Experience,......

Some of the companies or stores are still using the manual way in running their business. By using the manual way, they consume more time and energy just to finish their work.

With the potential for manipulation of order quantities, price, delivery locations, creation of false customers and misappropriation of funds or merchandise the area of sales requires control to ensure proper cash and a consistent flows of capital (Louwers, Ramsay, Sinason, & Strawser, 2007). The proposed controls for sale are: 1. Create an organizational chart of how is responsible for selling, authorizing sales, approving credit, entering orders, custody of products, recording sales in accounts receivable, collecting cash, recording receipt of cash, and entering sales into the ledgers. 2. The following files should be created to help control sales. • Credit check files • Price list master file • Pending order file • Sales detail 3. General ledger master file. 4. Record all sales on pre-numbered forms. 5. All sales require an accompanying customer purchase order. 6. Sales are documented on sequential numbered forms. 7. Perform credit checks on customers. 8.

...is defined as “the total expected sales of a given product or service for the entire industry in a specific market over a stated period of time” (Spiro & Stanton, 2008, p. 351). The tablet market potential in 2011 was around 116 million units. In 2012, the tablet market potential is expected to grow at the same rate if not more with the number of units totaling 140 million. The market potential for the iPad 2 also can be stated for men and women ages 16-55 years of age in multiple countries around the world. Sales Potential Market potential overviews the forecasted amount of units that will be sold for the industry and not the organization itself. If Apple wants to determine how the organization can capitalize on the 120 million units expected to sell in the tablet industry for 2012, the company must determine the sales potential for the iPad2. Sales potential refers to the “maximum share (or percentage) of market potential that an individual firm can reasonably expect to achieve” (Spiro & Stanton, 2008, p. 351). In the second half of 2011, the iPad 2 has accounted for 68.3% of the approximately 116 million units sold in the tablet market (Peckham, 2011). It is reasonable to agree that in the coming years Apple can expect to see between 55 to 60% market share in the tablet market. In 2012, Apple’s sales potential for the iPad 2 can be predicted to be 55% with the release of newer tablets from Amazon, Samsung, and Barnes & Noble. Sales Forecast In 2011 the iPad 2......

...Downloading in the digital age In the past decade CD sales have drop where there has been a rapid growth in the download of a signal song or album. The question at hand is what has made the change come along so fast? Could it be the fact that people use there iPod, mp3 player, or phone? What was the kick starter in the digital age ? The start of downloading music came along with Napster. Shawn Fanning was a freshman in Northeastern University in 1999, and he decided to create Napster which, was a piece of software that would let people share their mp3 files that where hard to find. This didn’t cost the user anything to use it. In Dec 1999 the legal battles began with Napster vs. the recording Industry Association of America, Metallica, and many others. The lawsuit that came about was based on infringing upon copyright laws. The legal battle came to an end in September 2001, and Napster was changed forever; with artists having final say over which songs could be shared on the platform. Napster wasn’t the end of the peer to peer networking of sharing music between users on the internet. There was Kazza thatsers could use. This came at a cost because, it was load with adware, spyware, and let’s not forget about the illegal downloading of something you don’t own. Even if you installed Kazza the spyware and, adware was still there. Kazza was shut down dew to copyright infringement. There are still programs out there that let user download music like......
