Projectmanagement Finance Projecten FBN

Mijn naam is Stefan Kappelhof en ik ben werkzaam op de afdeling Accounting, Reporting & Controlling van Fortis Bank Nederland (FBNL). Binnen Accounting, Reporting & Control hebben we te maken met een veelvoud aan projecten. In het jaar 2010, met de aankomende integratie tussen Fortis Bank Nederland en ABN AMRO, zal het aantal projecten toenemen. De projecten worden vaak toegewezen aan beschikbare personen, vaak met specifieke kennis van een onderwerp. De tijd die hiervoor wordt vrijgemaakt valt vaak buiten de business as usual. Er worden vanuit de projectgroepen vaak wel deadlines gesteld, maar dit wordt momenteel niet altijd afgestemd met de Manager Accounting waardoor het voor hem lastig sturen is.

Het doel van deze paper is om te onderzoeken of de projectplanning van FBNL efficiënt verloopt en wat de invloed hierbij is van de methode Prince 2 die FBNL voor al haar projectplanningen hanteert.
Hoe gaan afdelingen om met verandertrajecten die door het project ontstaan en is daar nog winst te boeken voor FBNL?

Met dit paper wil ik aantonen dat het projectmanagement binnen FBNL niet altijd optimaal verloopt. Daarnaast schort het vaak aan motivatie en bereidwilligheid bij de projectmedewerkers om zich volledig in te zetten voor het project.

Binnen FBNL maakt men gebruik van de methode Prince 2 voor de planning van bijna alle projecten.
Is Prince2 een juiste methode, of zijn er ook andere mogelijkheden?
Het onderzoek doe ik aan de hand van de planning van een project waarbij ik vorig jaar actief betrokken was. Het doel van dit project was om hypotheken te securitiseren van een sublabel van FBNL: Quion. Het project is geïnitieerd vanuit ALM (Asset & Liability Management) die een bankbrede functie heeft. De sublabel…...

...Control- Defined as any process that directs the activities of individuals toward the achievement of organizational goals. Utilizing control effectively is how managers can make sure that activities are going as planned. Control is a means or mechanism for regulating the behavior of organization members. Left on their own, people may act in ways that they perceive to be beneficial for their selves or the organization they work for but that action may actually harm the organization as a whole. In some cases it’s just plain ignorance, individuals just don’t realize the overall costs of their actions. Thus, control is one of the fundamental forces that keep the organization together and heading in the right direction.

(However it may come about, we notice two traits of the second situation: ( I) an openness of the thing before oneinstead of being an exercise to be learned according to an approved mode, it is a garden of delights which beckons to one; (2) a sovereignty of the knower-instead of being a consumer of a prepared experience, I am a sovereign wayfarer, a wanderer in the neighborhood of being who stumbles into the garden. One can think of two sorts of circumstances through which the thing may be restored to the person. (There is always,-of course; the-direct recovery:-A student may simply be strong enough, brave enough, clever enough to take the dogfish and the sonnet by storm, to wrest control of it from the educators and the educational package.)

Now all at once he can see it, directly and without let, just as the exile or the prisoner or the sick man sees the sparrow at his window in all its inexhaustibility; just as the commuter who has had a heart attack sees his own hand for the first time.

It Control

...of Information Security Controls Harold F. Tipton Security is generally defined as the freedom from danger or as the condition of safety. Computer security, specifically, is the protection of data in a system against unauthorized disclosure, modification, or destruction and protection of the computer system itself against unauthorized use, modification, or denial of service. Because certain computer security controls inhibit productivity, security is typically a compromise toward which security practitioners, system users, and system operations and administrative personnel work to achieve a satisfactory balance between security and productivity. Controls for providing information security can be physical, technical, or administrative. These three categories of controls can be further classified as either preventive or detective. Preventive controls attempt to avoid the occurrence of unwanted events, whereas detective controls attempt to identify unwanted events after they have occurred. Preventive controls inhibit the free use of computing resources and therefore can be applied only to the degree that the users are willing to accept. Effective security awareness programs can help increase users’ level of tolerance for preventive controls by helping them understand how such controls enable them to trust their computing systems. Common detective controls include audit trails, intrusion detection methods, and checksums. Three other types of controls supplement preventive......

Navistar’s premium conventional trucks were produced at the Chatham assembly plant, which had almost 14 years experience in producing Navistar’s premium line since 1983. Navistar had forecasted increased industry demand for heavy and medium trucks in 1998. Especially, the Chatham assembly plant’s customers had strict requirements to the truck’s quality and delivery date. As the assembly supervisor in Chatham, Andy Ramsz encountered the interior trim quality and delivery problem for the truck. Andy had begun to gather data on the interior trim supply problem and he got the crucial reasons for these problems occurred. These reasons absolutely affected the Navistar’s internal supply process, increased the extra cost as well as reduced the efficiency of the supply management. According to the reasons identified for the trim supply problem, my decision is to set up the improved procedure focused......

Gun Control

...Gun Control Hypothesis Paper By Christopher Fields Intro to Sociology Prof. Hennington Outline Hypothesis/ opening statement My opinions Love-hate relationship Crime rates Democrat Opinion Republican Opinion Evidence 1 Evidence 2 Evidence 3 Closing statement References After recent school shootings in America, the American people are starting to wonder when is the government going to stricken the gun control laws. After recent studies I will tell you which party republican or democrat is for the stricken the laws and which of them is not. Personally, I feel like you should be judged by your actions. If your criminal background portrays you as violent you should not be allowed to have a gun. On the other hand, if your have never shown any act of violence you should be allowed to have a gun. Crimes such as fraud, drug possession, and other mediocre crimes should not count. Everyone deserves the right to protect themselves, their family or even a stranger. If gun control laws are stricken gun violence will decrease. I’m going to prove this by using the Social Conflict approach which is a macro-oriented paradigm in sociology that views society as an arena of inequality that generates conflict and social change. Guns have a love-hate relationship with society some people fear guns and some people feel safe around guns. Most people fear guns because people think that they are going to get shot and killed for no reason. While others use guns for safety which......

Prof Renato Constantino

...THE MISEDUCATION OF THE FILIPINO Prof. Renato Constantino Education is a vital weapon of a people striving for economic emancipation, political independence and cultural renaissance. We are such a people. Philippine education therefore must produce Filipinos who are aware of their country's problems, who understand the basic solution to these problems, and who care enough to have courage to work and sacrifice for their country's salvation. Nationalism in Education In recent years, in various sectors of our society, there have been nationalist stirrings which were crystallized and articulated by the late Claro M. Recto, There were jealous demands for the recognition of Philippine sovereignty on the Bases question. There were appeals for the correction of the iniquitous economic relations between the Philippines and the United States. For a time, Filipino businessmen and industrialists rallied around the banner of the FILIPINO FIRST policy, and various scholars and economists proposed economic emancipation as an intermediate goal for the nation. In the field of art, there have been signs of a new appreciation for our own culture. Indeed, there has been much nationalist activity in many areas of endeavor, but we have yet to hear of a well-organized campaign on the part of our educational leaders for nationalism in education. Although most of our educators are engaged in the lively debate on techniques and tools for the improved instructions, not one major educational leader......

Prof on the effectiveness of the internal controls in place. The analysis and recommendations presented below are based on the internal control report. Question 1. Where is the theater’s control system lacking? Are the controls themselves weak or incomplete, or are the theater’s problems caused primarily because of lack of discipline in using the existing controls? Leo’s Four-Plex has four internal controls in place. These controls are presented in Table 1. Even though there are internal controls in place, the controls are not rigorously applied and are insufficient to control the flow of cash in the theater. Mr. Antonelli asked a local accounting instructor, Mr. Cockerill, to observe the theater and provide comments. Table 2 presents the internal controls in place and Mr. Cockerill’s findings. Question 2. What control improvements would you suggest for Leo’s Four-Plex? I suggest some definite and immediate changes be made to the internal control of cash at Leo’s Four-Plex Theaters. The most obvious deficiency is the focus on non-monetary controls. There are three internal controls devised to make sure that customers see the movie they paid for (color-coded tickets), that all of the tickets are accounted for (locked stub box), and that every customer has a ticket (turnstile). The only monetary-based internal controls are the serially-numbered tickets and the cash count conducted. My recommendations to improve or increase the controls are provided below. 1. Every......

... CHAPTER TWO LITERATURE REVIEW 2.0 Introduction This chapter reviews literature related to this study. This was done with the expectation that relevant information would be obtained to help shape and enrich the study, knowledge of what has been done on this topic is important in helping to clarify issues. The following topics were reviewed for the study; definition of loan, definition of SME, general principles of lending, loan monitoring and control, access to credit as well as repayment performance: theory and practice. 2.1 Definition of loan A loan is a type of debt like all debt instruments, a loan entrails the redistribution of financial assets over time, between the lender and the borrower. The borrower initially receives an amount of money from the lender which they pay back, using but not always in regular installment. Types of loans There are many different types of loans you can take out. When you are looking to borrow money, it’s important that you know your options. i. Open-ended loans: they are loans that you can borrow over and over again. Credit cards and lines of credit are the most common types of open-ended loans. With both of these loans, you have a credit limit that you can purchase against. Each time you make a purchase, your available credit decreases. As you make payments, your available increases allowing you to use the same credit over and over. ii. Closed-ended loans: this cannot be borrowed once they have been repaid. As you make payments......
