1 | Organisational Chart This is one of the fundamental document in any company, as it lays out the workflow of the company.As the new CEO, the organisational chart will serve as a reference which will allow me to check who to delegate tasks to as well as report to for anything. Being a recent employee, I have an unbiased judgement on the employees of the organisation. The key issue I have spotted in to regards to the organisational chart is that there is a vacancy for operations manager. The consequences of keeping this position vacant is that it will slow down production. Due to the evidence of vacant position the hierarchy following the resignation of John Sparrow (Item 15) it is a high priority to find someone to fill this position Recommended actions: to search vigilantly to find a worthy and capable individual to be in this position. I have to look back at what happened (interlinks with Item 15: Resignation Letter) and find someone able to follow up and develop what the previous operations manager was capable of. | High | 2 | Email from ChairmanThe Chairman does not seem to understand the…...

People don’t even know the difference between bam-boo (a grass) and rattan (a tree) and its distinguished species. This is due to little information and knowledge about......

...THE PORTMAN HOTEL COMPANY CASE Section 1: Statement of the problem facing the manager The major problem faced by the vice president and managing director , Patrick Mene was to bail out the company from current state of employee dissatisfaction through strategic human resource management to provide best customer service and increase the profits for the company . Analyzing the situation using SWOT and PESTC analysis, we arrive at certain factors that could explain the current situation in the company. SWOT: Strengths: * Key business strategy of providing the unparalleled personal service to each guest. * Each of the employees was considered as an asset and elaborate employee rights were listed in contracts with them. * The philosophy of the hotel emphasized on high quality but cost effective service. * Hotel recruited very selectively and demanded long term commitment from the employees. * Recruitment was done on certain life themes like assertiveness, positivity, responsibility, pride and gestalt. * Concept of “no rules” for the guests. * Except for the 9 engineers, none of the rest of the employees had joined any of the union. Weakness: * The very philosophy of the hotel to cut down on the middle management and put more employees at the guest front proved to be flawed as there was acute paucity of proper supervision for the lower level employees. * Due to random allocation of the employees at various jobs led to utter chaos......

Analyzing Pro Forma Statements

...Analyzing Pro Forma Statements FIN/571 Kalena Armstrong-Henry November 4, 2013 Analyzing Pro Forma Statements General and financial managers can both benefit from forecasting financial statements. Proforma statements assist financial managers to plan accordingly, in terms of the company’s financial needs. How much financing is needed and when it is needed can be determined by acquiring an estimate of the company’s future balance sheet accounts and income statement. Hence, the purpose of the Proforma analysis is to forecast the company’s financial statements under a particular condition (Parrino et al., 2012). Subsequently, total assets must equate the sum of total liabilities and owner’s equity; otherwise the manager must consider corrective action (Parrino et al., 2012). The Proforma analysis has been proven to be instrumental for general managers in the planning of inventory and employment intensities; particularly problems solving issues. During the developing stages of the forecasting a manager is permitted to analyze the results; thus, identifying potential “hot spots” and handling the issues accordingly. Dealing with “hot spots” with ample time to spare during the forecasting stage is vital to any financial manager. When performing a Proforma Analysis the financial manager can handle forthcoming issues weeks or months in advance; thus, providing the manager ample time to avoid a potential real-time calamity. Subsequently, the manager will gain the ability......

...FORECASTING FINANCIAL STATEMENTS:  PROFORMA ANALYSIS Roger Clarke and Grant McQueen August 2001 ABSTRACT This teaching note explains why and how managers project financial statements into the future. The note is designed for an introduction to corporate finance class. The note prepares students for either a case such as Clarkson Lumber or a real-word project in which proforma statements are needed. This note explains how to build a proforma balance sheet and intentionally does not include a complete proforma income statement so that the students will have to demonstrate some ingenuity when doing the follow-on case or project. The note is a nice supplement to both the advance and remedial corporate finance text books. The more advanced books (e.g., Ross, Westerfield, and Jaffe) typically give short shrift to the topic of forecasting and the more remedial text books (e.g., Block and Hirt) typically build the forecasted statements presupposing the manager knows production projections (e.g. the type, number, and price of units to be bought, produced, and sold). Roger Clark is with Analytic-TSA Global Asset Management and an Adjunct Professor in the Marriott School at Brigham Young University. Grant McQueen is the William Edwards Professor of Finance in the Marriott School at Brigham Young University. The authors thank colleges at BYU and ASU and the research assistance and students for their contributions. Send correspondence to Grant McQueen, 671...

Analyzing Proforma

...Analyzing Pro Forma Statements FIN 571 September 11, 2014 Introduction This paper is the analysis of pro forma financial statements. Pro forma statements are forecasted or projected financial statements as a result of financial planning. The financial statements are based on the inputs and assumptions such as percent of sales model in which most of the entries vary directly with the level of sales. The attached excel spreadsheet includes pro forma statements for the next five years. This company decided to invest in the purchase of new equipment to help increase sales. The resulting projections are the focus of this paper. Analysis of pro forma statements will determine if the company requires any external financing to support its planned initiatives. Assumptions supporting each line for forecasted statements This paper covers a five year plan with the basic assumptions for the pro forma statements that the equipment purchase initiative will increase sales by 12% for the first two years, and then 5% for the next three years. The cost of sales including purchases, production and labor, and ending inventory will vary with sales, while beginning inventory comes from prior year ending inventory. Depreciation will increase by $40K for the additional equipment in year one. Fixed assets will not vary from year to year, except for $200K increase in equipment expected in the first year to support sales growth. Retained earnings for the prior year comes from previous year, and...

A place that offers low prices must be a great place right? Maybe it isn’t such a great place. Low prices come at a cost to America. I do not think that Walmart good for America. Walmart purchases a lot of products from China, which furthers America’s trade deficit. Walmart contributes to the downfall of American manufacturers. Walmart also encourages businesses to take manufacturing overseas. Walmart imports an extreme amount of products from China. China’s prices are cheaper. The low cost of labor in China makes their products cheaper than American products. Chinese products allows Walmart to sell the products to consumers for a low cost. Walmart rakes in the profits because of the large mark-up they use. The United States currently has a major trade deficit. The trade deficit hurts our economy. We are buying more products from other countries than we are selling to them. Manufactures have to go to Walmart headquarters to negotiate prices. If Walmart disagrees with the terms, the manufactures lose them as clients. Rubbermaid once made and sold products to Walmart. The price of resin increased, and Rubbermaid had to increase their prices. Walmart refused to take the price increase. They stopped carrying Rubbermaid products. Rubbermaid was hurt drastically by Walmart’s decision. They later...

Proforma Statements

...Pro forma Statements∗ After thoroughly analyzing a company's current situation and the road it took to get there, it is natural to next ask where it is going. The answer will depend on numerous factors including the economic environment, competition, customer tastes, and both strategic and tactical choices. It is the job of the pro forma financial statements to translate these operational forces into numerical estimates of expected financial performance. There are several reasons for projecting future financial performance. First, pro forma statements are very useful when evaluating alternative business strategies. It is one thing to discuss strategy at the conceptual level, but much more valuable to be able to identify the profit and funding effects of alternative strategies. Second, evaluating alternative future events permits explicit measurement of risk. Financial projections do not eliminate the sources of risk. However, they do help the decision‐maker find which risks are important and how realizations of those risks will affect the company. Finally, pro forma statements identify the amount of funds needed and assist in deciding on the appropriate structure for the funding. It is simply not possible to develop an adequate funding plan without relying on pro forma statements. Pro forma statements provide financial estimates of the impact of a business plan. As such, pro formas incorporate the following information: • A marketing plan indicating what......

...Memorandum To: Nancy Innella From: John Hayes Date: 7/3/2016 Re: Presenting Staffing and Scheduling Ideas _____________________________________________________ Staffing Challenges _____ I am so grateful to have a mentor. Currently my mind is in a whirlwind trying to contemplate my options relative to staffing. Several things are impacting my decisions. Any feedback you can provide would be appreciated. I will try to summarize the issues. Summary of Current Staffing and Budget for Medical-Surgical beds ------------------------------------------------- Currently, Christ Advocate has a total nursing hours per patient in medical-surgical of 8.93 for the 394 authorized beds. Since the hospital has chosen to not use LPN employees, the nursing staff is a mix of RNs and assistants. Since the budget is set for this year, in an attempt to increase efficiency and decrease readmits, I propose that staffing remain at 8.93 with an increase in RNs to at least 7.0 and decrease assistants to 1.93. With this mix, the budget will be increase by approximately $4K. These monies can be recouped in the decrease of Medicare penalty by having more RN hours per patient thereby decreasing Christ Advocate 30-day readmission rate of identified patients (Illinois Department of Public Health 2016). ------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------- Impact of Medicare Reimbursement bonus/penalty on staffing Christ Advocate......
