|Applicant |Rank |Reasons |
|Park L. |3 |I’m sure the answer in the book would not want me to rank Park as high as 3 but there are a |
| | |lot of things I like about him. I know he doesn’t have a graduate degree but I think his |
| | |experience in the field is more valuable. I like the fact that he has worked his way up |
| | |from the bottom and the only reason he can’t go any hire is due to family members in the |

Assignment 1, Project Management Book

...Project Management: Assignment 1 Question One The author describes a project manager as an ‘accidental profession’ for two reasons: - there are no specific programs or courses, to train a project manager, nor even within companies who are specialized in project management. - people normally do not wish to be a project management, as it isn’t a well defined career, and above all, it doesn’t have a defined path within an organization Globally, all different branches of management (finance, marketing, sales, etc.) have a specific planned role within their company, as they work in their division, they have specific duties, following the global company’s main goals. Instead, project managers are called upon to lead, plan and control on a particular task, based on a specific necessity of the company to create or implement a plan of action, working with and coordinating all different branches of the company. Looking at the twelve points a project manager must consider and remember while doing his work, I think the most important one is the number one: understand the context of project management. This because before taking any action and starting doing a project, it is fundamental to understand what it has to be done, and what is the focus objective to be accomplished, in order to make a precise work. I would rank at number two, at same level, lead from the front and build and maintain a cohesive team, as it is very important to establish the roles and to have a......

Essentials of Management Book

...the overall learning experience. Cengage Learning reserves the right to remove additional content at any time if subsequent rights restrictions require it. LETTER TO INSTRUCTORS Essentials of Management, 9e Dear Colleague, Whether you are a previous adopter, a new adopter, or a professor considering this text for adoption, I wish to thank you for your interest in Essentials of Management 9e. Essentials was the first relatively brief management text that was not simply an abbreviated version of a longer text. We created the path for a more concise, more understandable, and practical approach to the vast body of knowledge referred to as “management.” We assume that the study of management is not exclusively geared toward C-level executives, and that our readers will not be directing large enterprises or divisions of large enterprises in their first job. Instead, the vast majority of our readers will first be engaged in work that will require some managerial skill and knowledge, even though they are not working as executives. Virtually all texts in management and related fields claim to be practical, although many single sentences within them make six sweeping recommendations for CEOs or list ten companies that use a particular technique. We contend that Essentials of Management, unlike much of the competition, is and always has been a text that enables the student to apply much of the information. We support our conclusions with relevant research studies wherever possible...

...the company’s debt to its assets and (2) by comparing the interest it must pay to the income it has available for payment of interest. Such comparisons are made by ratio analysis. A liquid asset is an asset that can be converted to cash quickly without having to reduce the asset’s price very much. Liquidity ratios are used to measure a firm’s ability to meet its current obligations as they come due. 2. One of the most commonly used liquidity ratios is the current ratio. 2. The current ratio measures the extent to which current liabilities are covered by current assets. 3. It is determined by dividing current assets by current liabilities. 4. It is the most commonly used measure of short-term solvency. Asset management ratios measure how effectively a firm is managing its assets and whether the level of those assets is properly related to the level of operations as measured by sales. 3. The inventory turnover ratio is defined as sales divided by inventories. 5. It is often necessary to use average inventories rather than year-end inventories, especially if a firm’s business is highly seasonal, or if there has been a strong upward or downward sales trend during the year. 4. Days sales outstanding (DSO), also called the “average collection period” (ACP), is used to appraise accounts receivable, and it is calculated by dividing accounts receivable by average daily sales to find the number of days’ sales tied up in receivables. ......
