Week One Assignment

The first week’s assignment focuses on developing a plan to gain knowledge about key course concepts and apply those concepts in an organization. Begin by reviewing the objectives for the first week of the course as well as the Week One mind map. Next, study the scenario and work briefly through the simulation assigned for Week One. During the process, identify the concepts in the objectives and mind map that the scenario and simulation reflect. Finally, read the assigned text materials to develop knowledge about the concepts. Additional reading of research on the concepts in the library will enhance knowledge further.

An essential business skill is the ability to communicate concise information while providing a well-researched response. In this assignment, demonstrate that skill by completing the worksheet on the following page. The example below is from the MBA/500 course using the Global Communications scenario. Use this example to help understand the assignment’s requirements. The worksheet should not contain simple one-word or even one-sentence answers; it should adequately demonstrate, in short paragraphs, graduate-level thinking about the situations presented in the scenario, the simulation, and the reading materials.

...Week 1: Overview of Financial Statements - Discussion Accounting is a way of tracking transactions and organizing them into concise reports to be used by investors, principals of companies, or government agencies to be able to control the financial health of a company, family, or an individual. The book uses the example of a checkbook, which is apropos, as I don't know of anyone who has never "bounced" a check due to careless recording of a transaction.  Accounting involves a level of trust, that the reporting is accurate and true.  Unfortunately, trust is not enough, and it must be standardized and regulated. Accounting is a way to maximize a finite resource (capital) and allocate it in the most efficient way.   Accounting is the bookkeeping methods involved in making a financial record of business transactions. It is also the preparation of statements concerning the assets, liabilities, and operating results of a business.  Accounting is part of every day life for those who pay bills as well.  Honestly in the business community there has to be accounting in place to see where the business stands.

...“marginal” means “extra,” “additional,” or “a change in.” Most choices or decisions involve changes in the status quo, meaning the existing state of affairs. For instance, should you attend school for another year? Should you study an extra hour for an exam? Should you supersize your fries? Similarly, should a business expand or reduce its output? Should government increase or decrease its funding for a missile defense system (Brue & McConnell, 2010)? Each option involves marginal benefits and, be- cause of scarce resources, marginal costs. In making choices rationally, the decision maker must compare those two amounts. Example: You and your fiancée are shopping for an engagement ring. Should you buy a 1/2-carat diamond, a 5/8-carat diamond, a 3/4-carat diamond, a 1-carat diamond, or something even larger? The marginal cost of a larger-size diamond is the added expense beyond the cost of the smaller-size diamond. The marginal benefit is the perceived greater lifetime pleasure (utility) from the larger-size stone. If the marginal benefit of the larger diamond exceeds its marginal cost (and you can afford it), buy the larger stone. But if the marginal cost is more than the marginal benefit, buy the smaller diamond instead, even if you can afford the larger stone (Brue & McConnell, 2010)! I myself have been making decisions in which I have weighed marginal cost and marginal benefits during the holiday season. For example, for Christmas I was buying my daughter a......

...10/06/2013 Psy 202 Instr. Weniger WK 1 Assignment Profound Life Events This week’s assignment asks to list five profound events in my life. The first that comes to mind is the birth of my son, Michael. He is now 27 years old and in the US Air Force. He was born on 5/13/1986. My own birthday is 05/15/1964, I always thought this was a nice coincidence. When he was conceived, my wife and I were still young and struggling. We were married about 2 years. We lived in Virginia Beach. In addition, we had just bought our first condo. Things were tight but good. I was just out of the Army and she was finishing her first enlistment in the Navy. We had been together about 5 year’s altogether. One of the surprises this brought was the pregnancy itself. My wife had some reproductive issues and pregnancy was unlikely. My feelings immediately were apprehensive. I was not sure I was ready to be a father. My own father was absent a lot due to his job. My father was a great man even though he had to be away. He taught me, or better sowed me about responsibility. I was not sure I could do the same. All the factors we used in making our decision seemed, at least to me that we should wait. My wife was not on board with termination. This created some stress in the very beginning and is something I have come to regret. As things progressed I calmed and really looked forward to that big day. We really get into the preparations are getting excited. I have to be honest, I was not sure I...

...CheckPoint: Technology Trendy Communication XCOM/285 April 2014 Week 1 CheckPoint: Technology Trendy Communication The face of business communications is changing very quickly with new technology. The question of using the new technology effectively weighs heavier on the side of not being able to. New devices and new methods of communication being produced at such a fast pace, businesses have a hard time keeping up. Training and retraining employees across the board, not only takes up time, but also takes enormous amounts of capital investment. (Locker & Kienzler, 2008). The older employees may also become less productive when having to retrain on new systems continually. Changing technology too quickly can be detrimental to other areas of business, such as customer service. For example, the customers’ needs being set aside while employees are training is not good for business. When customers call with questions, they like to hear the voice of confidence, but instead get the voice of frustration of new equipment or software an agent is still trying to master. There seems to be a larger number of big companies that have been able to keep up with the new trends, but usually not without consequence somewhere along the line. Accidental security breaches being high on the list of technology problems these companies face. Another problem being information overload. Too much information to manage can be overwhelming for employees......

...be fair to all who lived here. Americans enjoy the pursuit of happiness, freedom of living and equality because of our Constitution. The foundation for our constitution can be traced back as far as medieval times and the Magna Carta. Even then people were fighting for the rights of the people. Through the signing of this document the King could not infringe upon the rights of the people in any unfair or unjust way. The colonist used many ideas from this document to help create our first constitution it helped to create the due process of law. “This concept, embraced by the leaders of the American Revolution, is embedded in the supremacy clause of the United States Constitution and enforced by the Supreme Court”( Edsitement, 2012, parg 1). As time passed many who lived in England began to feel conflict with in the country they lived in and set sail for a new land called the America’s. Upon arrival they began to build colonies. During this time the Mayflower Compact was created to provide a type of Government to be established for the colonists. “On May 21, 1620, the Mayflower Compact was signed by 41 adult males in Provincetown Harbor, Mass, representing the first agreement on self-government in English North America” (Digitalhistory, 2012) Based on the character of man, it is very clear that there be a necessity for laws to govern the rulers and ensure equality for all.

Apple Inc., though a leader, has dealt with controversy in regard to employee dissatisfaction and unethical working conditions. Employees working in the Foxconn manufacturing plant in Chengdu, China, recently have complained about the working conditions and, the unfair benefits in which they receive. An employee explained after arriving at the Foxconn factory, only senior employees were given benefits and offered sick time, also employees are forced to work overtime regularly (Zhang, 2012). Apple has been accused of discriminating the work employees because of the working conditions they have endured. Employees working 60 “plus” hours per work and making very minimal incomes, they are experience de facto discrimination, which is unequal treatment of employees that is illegal but overlooked (Kottak & Kozaitis, 2003).
