interoffice memorandum to: | Executive Vice President | from: | Aftden white & teammates | subject: | Last in/First out & first in/first out | date: | February 5, 2013 | | | | | In response, to the request of inventory methods of Last In/ First Out and First In/ First Out overview. The team researched and discussed the contrast between the two inventory methods..
The choice of Last In/ First Out and First In/First Out will influence the profit and loss statements. The company should continue with using Last In/ First Out if the costs remain the same, but we should move to First In/First Out if the costs increase, as expected. The question of whether the company’s Cost of Goods Sold and inventories cost will increase or decrease with the use of the two inventory methods. To our findings, the First In/First Out will decrease the value of the Cost of Goods Sold and have an increase value of inventory. The Last In/ First Out will decrease the value of Cost of Goods Sold and decrease the value of inventory.
To improve the company’s cash flow and profit margin, the Last In/ First Out method is best. With Last In/ First Out, we can continue to reduce federal and state corporate income taxes. The reduction of corporate income taxes has leaded the company to better cash flow and profit margin.
We recommend continuing to use the Last In/First Out because of the improvements it will have on cash flows and profit margin. Please find the overview to be helpful in making the decision of which inventory method to apply to the company.…...

...Luis Cubilla ENG/221 Technical Writing Fundamentals Zachery Koppelmann January 28 2013 The organization of the memo from Hugh to Abram is partially organized. Hugh does not stray from his subject much and appears to stay on point with what he wants to address. The letter has an average format with a standard intro body and conclusion along with a signature which should be included in all e-mails. The clarity however leaves little to be desired for but at least Hugh admits that he does not understand his own employee or his friend. Hugh talks about how he was advised not to use certain enterprise software’s with by his friend and how he could not understand much of how the situation should be handled or how he should move forward with his business plans. The writing style is very unprofessional; it almost seems more like Hugh is writing to a friend rather than a co-worker or colleague. There are no real formalities Abram is only addressed by name once and the overall feel looks like something a brother would write to his family member. The memo seemed to be a little disrespectful in some ways. First Hugh is talking business matters with a friend rather than Abram, secondly it appears Hough’s friend is providing the basic of warnings that any programmer should look for but Hugh appears to be leaning towards his friend’s advice rather than Abram who as Hough states “respects his professional approach”. To add further insult to injury Abram has been asked to not...

...MEMO #1 Para: Gerente General De: Gerente de producción Asunto: Recomendación sobre política de cumplimiento de estándares razonables para trabajadores de contratistas extranjeros. Fecha: Jueves, 21 de mayo del 2015. El motivo de la presente es para dar mi recomendación sobre una de las políticas acerca del cumplimiento de estándares para los trabajadores de nuestros contratistas extranjeros. Pienso que es importante que como organización nos involucremos con los trabajadores de nuestros contratistas mediante una vigilancia de cumplimientos de estándares o normas. A esta política, agregaría la prohibición del trabajo infantil. Con esta política, vamos a asegurar que estos trabajadores tengan el derecho a trabajar en buenas condiciones por su seguridad, paga justa (no la que actualmente perciben, que es ridículamente baja), y procurar su salud. Generalmente en países asiáticos el trabajo infantil es normal, parte de su cultura, pero no de la nuestra. Existen razones por las cuales el trabajo infantil no es correcto, entre ellas el derecho que tienen a estudiar, jugar, etc. Con el cumplimiento de estándares razonables evitaremos futuros conflictos puesto que los descuidos en seguridad a este personal pueden desencadenar en problemas sociales (activistas laborales) y económicos así como ha ocurrido en los últimos años donde empresas estadounidenses han sido partícipes de esta situación. Como organización nos debe preocupar esto, debemos asegurar que aquellas......

Freedom Rewritten

...Courtney Fleming Marcy Holland W-130 15 September 2015 Freedom Rewritten Our freedom is limited because we mistakenly misunderstood what the right to be free meant. Thomas Jefferson’s, “The Declaration of Independence,” argues in his 1776 draft that if the government goes against what people want, they have a right to rebel and form a new type of government. As well as, if there is an unbalanced amount of respect, we the people are turned down the right to a full voice and the activation of our rights. With that being said, he expressed American Freedom around what we were willing to risk for a change and what we would allow come between our wants and needs. Naomi Wolf’s, “Freedom is intended as a challenge,” explains The Declaration of Independence in a way that would be more modernized for people that could not grasp what Jefferson was meaning. Wolf also continues to elaborate the challenges Americans personally sacrifice for the sake of freedom. Having said that, the pursuit of happiness mirrors the time period in which we live in. Nowadays you see the laws changing all around us. Currently same-sex marriage is now legal but just a few years ago they weren’t allowed to. Black people and white people are no longer segregated and 23 states have change their drug laws and have made marijuana legal. Everyday seems like the idea of freedom is changing. The pursuit of happiness is a reflection over how it was back then and how it is now. In Jefferson’s writing he uses...

...MEMO IE Business school Saturday, October 3rd 2015 Dear Santiago Iñiguez de Onzoño, My name is Sami and I have recently joined the MIM program for the September 2015 intake. I would like to constructively comment on the introductory weeks for this program and highlight some important details you may take into account for next year’s intake. I believe that this part of the program is very important and key to build a successful year ahead. First of all, I think that the 2 weeks introductory workshops were too long and sometimes got really boring and repetitive. my recommendation is to compress the pre-program to one week instead of two, that way students will get exposed to the MIM structure and will get to know each other before the start of the 1st module. In addition, some of the workshops we attended were very long lectures like the cross cultural workshop for example. I would recommend to include some interactive exercises where students could present themselves and reflect their background to the rest of the class. In that way students would me more familiar with each other’s cultures and can get the opportunity to bond and feel comfortable during the opening week of the program. Furthermore, Some sessions extended over the course of two days like the entrepreneurship workshop for example, in my opinion a single day is enough to introduce the concept of entrepreneurship to the students specially because they will be learning all about it......

SINCE ONE OF YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES IS TO INTRODUCE NEW EMPLOYEES TO THE REST OF THE TEAM, I THOUGHT I WOULD PUT TOGETHER A BIT OF INFORMATION FOR YOU. I HOPE YOU FIND IT USEFUL. REMEMBER, YOUR OBJECTIVE IS NOT ONLY TO GET NEW EMPLOYEES ACCLIMATED WITH THE COMPANY, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY TO THEIR TEAMMATES AND THEIR WORK ENVIRONMENT. YOUR BACKGROUND, ALTHOUGH LIMITED WITH COMMUNICATION, WILL HELP TREMENDOUSLY, ESPECIALLY AS YOU BEGIN TO HONE YOUR COMMUNICATION SKILLS. WHEN I FIRST STARTED THIS JOB, I TOO HAD LIMITED BACKGROUND IN GROUP COMMUNICATION. AS I BECAME MORE FAMILIAR WITH THE JOB AND THE STAFF, MY COMMUNICATION SKILLS GREW RAPIDLY, AND YOURS WILL TOO. The transition to a new manager may cause some issues with the team. As you are probably aware, some people do not handle change well. Any issues will need to be addressed as soon as possible. For instance, certain employees may be uncomfortable with a new manager; therefore, it will be necessary for you to properly introduce yourself to the team. Team members may be apprehensive to discuss issues with you at first and that is why a respectable level of communication must be opened from the very beginning. You probably will have your own set of expectations for the team. It is very important that you discuss any changes to rules and......
