Guidance

*************

Management Decisions

Managers make decisions all the time.

  • Some decisions are about people; e.g., recruiting, hiring, training, promoting, performance review, layoffs, firing.
  • Some decisions are about products; e.g., marketing, product promotion, advertising, expanding product distribution to new regions or new countries, introducing new products, rejuvenating old products.
  • Some decisions are about strategy; e.g., outsourcing, or make or buy, or plant expansion, or plant closing, or adding a shift.
  • Some decisions are about finance; e.g., issue stock or borrow, increase or decrease the dividend, hedge against foreign currency fluctuations, change the credit terms, reduce risk through derivatives.
  • Some decisions are about organization; e.g., should we stay organized by functions like Marketing, Production, Human Relations, Finance, etc., or switch to organization by product lines, or by geography, or to a matrix organization? Should we establish cross-functional teams?

What all these decisions have in common is that they all need the costs and benefits of various alternatives to be defined, estimated and compared. Then the best alternative needs to be selected and implemented.

And cost-benefit comparison is done by using economic analysis. Economic analysis is basically the method of making cost-benefit evaluations in order to assist decision-makers in choosing the best alternative. Choosing the best alternative is a management decision. That is the connection between management and economic analysis.

Bicycle Case

 

Understanding the effects of pricing on revenues, costs and pricing

  1. (30 points):  Analysis of Pricing: You manage The Really Annoying Bicycle Messenger Company   which makes deliveries for lawyers, consultants, accountants, and lobbyists in the much of Washington DC including Georgetown.   The company makes deliveries of documents and small packages at a price of $10.00 each.  The average number of deliveries in one month is 31,000. The owners of the Really Annoying Bicycle Co.  would like to increase its sales and profits.  They know that, if price is lowered, they will generate more deliveries.   So they run an experiment.  Price is lowered to $9.00 per delivery in May and the number of deliveries   increases to 33,000.
    1. What is the Price Elasticity of Demand?
    2. Is elasticity elastic, inelastic or neither?
    3. What does this mean and why does it matter?
    4. Will Revenues increase or decrease as a result of the price cut? By How much?
    5. Beatrice has calculated the fixed costs for the Really Annoying are $15,000 per month and each bicycle messenger receives $5.50 per delivery.  Will profits go up or down as a result of the price cut?  By How much?
    6. Profits are revenue minus all costs.

 

  1. (30 points): Shaun  suggests that there wasn’t enough time in the experiment.  He estimates that in the second month, June, the Really Annoying Company will have 36,000 deliveries at $9.00.  Please answer the following assuming that Shaun  is correct.  You want to get an idea of what will happen to profits before you commit to an action. If profits go up assuming that Shaun is correct, then you will keep the current price of $9.00 during June. If the profits go down, you plan to return to $10 per delivery.
    1. What would be the Price Elasticity of Demand if Shaun is correct?
    2. Is elasticity elastic, inelastic or neither?
    3. What does this mean and why does it matter?
    4. Will Revenues increase or decrease as a result of the price cut to $9.00 at 36,000 deliveries?  By How much?
    5. Beatrice has calculated the fixed costs for the Really Annoying are $15,000 per month and each delivery costs $5.50.  Will profits go up or down as a result of the price cut if Really Annoying has 36,000 deliveries?  By How much?

 

  1. (40 points): The Really Annoying owners see the change in profits from the price decrease in May and the projection for June.  They decide to go back to a price of $10.00 and have 31,000 deliveries in June.  They decide that they are only willing to manage enough bicycle messengers to support 31,000 deliveries at a price of $10.00.  However, if they raised price to $11.00 per delivery, they would be willing to hire and manage enough messengers to make 45,000 deliveries in July.
    1. Calculate the Elasticity of Supply.  Is it elastic or inelastic?
    2. How many deliveries will Really Annoying have at a price of $11.00?  Hint: you can only sell what customers will buy.  Use the original the elasticity of demand calculated in 1 above.
    3. What will be the Revenue?
    4. What will be the Profit?
    5. Should Really Annoying Bicycle Messenger Company raise the price to $11.00? Why or why not?

Assignment Topic – Negotiating a Job Offer
In Negotiation Skills, you have learned various skills and strategies necessary to both expand and maximize your share of the pie, with the objective to ensure a ‘win-win’ deal for the parties involved.
Salary negotiations are very important, as you can appreciate the implications in terms of welfare, for you and your family for years to come. Consider this example – with an average annual pay increase of 5%, an employee with a starting salary of $55,000 instead of $50,000 would earn an additional $600,000+ over the course of 40-year career.
Thus, your ability to negotiate well with future employers can have a profound impact in your standard of living in years to come.
Scenario:
You have just graduated with your business degree and have just been shortlisted for an interview with a well-known accounting firm for the position of “Graduate Accountant”. You are required to find a suitable company (private or publicly listed) of your choice for this assignment.

1. Conduct comprehensive research and consider the questions and issues from Appendix 4 of main textbook under: (1) “Preparation”, (2) “In vivo: during the negotiation, itself”, and (3) “Post Offer: You have the offer, now what?” and prepare a report within 2000 to 2500 words.
2. Prepare a negotiation worksheet (see next page) for the interview based on your findings and include the worksheet at the front of the report.
The following preparation worksheet has been included as an example. The blank copy following is for your group to complete and submit.

Literary elements and the short story

 

“No amount of reading or understanding will make you successful in life. It is the application of wise thought that counts.”

Bob Proctor

This week’s overview

Welcome to Week 2 of Introduction to Literature. As is typical in a literature class, you have a lot of reading this week. What is noteworthy about this week’s reading is that it includes many terms that will be important for you to know moving forward.

As is detailed in the information under the “Week 2” tab to the left, you are to read Chapters 4, 5, 6 and 7 of Journey Into Literature. When you read, I encourage you to take notes as you are presented a lot of information that you will want to reference throughout this class.

Strategies for this week’s assignments

You have two Discussion forums this week that require your participation:

  • Discussion 1: Literary techniques and their connection to conflict in literature. Be as specific as you can in this discussion prompt. Be sure to use textual evidence to support your answers to the questions in the prompt.
  • Discussion 2: Character analysis and setting. As with Discussion 1 of this week, find textual evidence to illustrate the ideas you present in your response. For those of you writing on setting for your literary analysis paper, you are encouraged to include any ideas you are already working on if they are relevant to the prompt.

 

Your written assignment this week is an annotated bibliography. This assignment involves you finding material to supplement your research for your literary analysis and completing a writing assignment in which you offer specific annotations on each text involved. To help you succeed in this assignment, a template AND a sample assignment are located in the instructions for the assignment. Be sure to look at them carefully. You can also visit this page from the Ashford Writing Center to learn more about an annotated bibliography.

Intellectual elaboration

You’re likely reading many new terms in your textbook reading this week. In a college course, you are expected to demonstrate your knowledge of terms by applying that knowledge to a situation or problem. In grade school or high school, you might be asked to simply repeat definitions. However, applying the knowledge shows true understanding of the concepts and requires higher levels of thinking. Your knowledge of the terms and your ability to apply that knowledge will be used throughout the remainder of this course. You will want to consider HOW a term affects the work as a whole.

Some of you might be wondering what I mean. Let’s take an example by looking at the following couple of paragraphs from the beginning of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee:

Maycomb was an old town, but it was a tired old town when I first knew it. In rainy weather the streets turned to red slop; grass grew on the sidewalks, the court-house sagged in the square. Somehow, it was hotter then: a black dog suffered on a summer’s day; bony mules hitched to Hoover carts flicked flies in the sweltering shade of the live oaks on the square. Men’s stiff collars wilted by nine in the morning. Ladies bathed before noon, after their three o’clock naps, and by nightfall were like soft tea-cakes with frostings of sweat and sweet talcum. People moved slowly then. They ambled across the square, shuffled in and out of the stores around it, took their time about everything. A day was twenty-four hours long but seemed longer. There was no hurry, for there was nowhere to go, nothing to buy and no money to buy it with, nothing to see outside the boundaries of Maycomb County.

If I were simply asking you to show me that you understood a literary term, you might say that the above excerpt illustrates the setting for the novel. It describes the place of the story in detail, and we understand that this is likely a small, poor, rural town. The story also likely takes place in summer, as the excerpt makes references to heat.

This would be a fine demonstration of an understanding of the term setting, but in this class we are also asking you to apply that knowledge. What’s so significant about some of the words that the narrator uses? For example, when the courthouse “sagged in the square,” we get the feeling that even the buildings of this town are tired. The latter description of the people makes us feel that they move in slow motion with absolutely no purpose. A sense of stagnation pervades this opening; we have a town and its inhabitants stricken by near catatonia. When we know of the plot and the historical context of the story, we can then make correlations to how this opening truly ‘sets the stage’ for later action (or in this case, inaction) AND how the setting connects to the later conflict. The following video offers some information on the historical context of the novel:

 

Though our focus this week is on the short story genre rather than the novel, the definitions of the terms and your application of them remain the same. I hope this specific example helps you understand the difference between defining a term and applying your understanding of it. When you learn about the terms in this week’s reading, try to apply what you learn when you read the literary works included in your textbook.
