RE: Internet Site

Hi Jesse,

Looking over the internet site, I think maybe more detail in the services we offer. This would allow potential customers to have a better understanding of what we offer. Also maybe have the web pages formatted so they will format to the browser that is being used. The site pages appear small and having the pages do this will make it easier to see the information.

Looking at other IT Consulting firm’s websites, our could us some updating and more details on what SCR offers and what it can do to help out customers

The SCR Web site includes realistic features, content, and links that allows you to learn about the company and its background. Find examples of other IT consulting firms and compare them to the SCR site. Create a brief memo here with your suggestions.

2. On the SCR intranet, visit the data, forms, and resource libraries and review a sample of the information in each library.

The information on the intranet appears organized and easy to navigate. If I find anything that needs updating or added to I will let you know.

This task provides an overview of the site and will give you a valuable introduction to the case study. Write your review here.

3. Using the SCR functions and organization listed in the data library, create an organization chart using Microsoft Word, Visio, or a drawing program.

You can use the list of SCR functions and organization (Document 1-2 from the data library) to create an organization chart. A sample chart follows on the next page:

...come under growing pressure to ensure that workers in their supply chain - particularly in labor-intensive markets such as India and China - are not exploited. The BBC's Panorama programme, which carried out a six-month investigation, alerted Primark to the problems that their suppliers are sub-contracted smaller firms, which were using child labor to carry out embroidery and sequin work. Under the terms of its code of practice for suppliers, Primark prohibits the use of child labor in its manufacturing chain. Equilibrium Price: This is the price at the quantity of goods demanded is equal to the amount supplied. Let us take an example, say when the price of a tin of sugar is $1 there was a demand of 100 boxes of sugar and 100 boxes were supplied to the market at that particular time. Then we say that $1 is the equilibrium price at that point. Considering consumers as stakeholders, the intense pressure cause the demand of the Primark’s products to decrease. A decrease in the demand of their product leads to excess supply of their products. Since supply is excess, equilibrium price will fall. A case may also arise where there will be a change in both supply and demand of their commodity. This may occur in the ways that both demand and supply may increase or both supply and demand may decrease, supply may increase while demand decreases and lastly, supply may decrease while demand increases. If both supply and demand decrease equally, it is assumed that no change had......

...Question 1 Booth Financial Services, LLC has two revenue producing departments, Financial Planning and Business Consulting. The accounting department is trying to determine the best method to allocate $1,000,000 of common costs (secretarial staff, reception personnel, etc), either by salary or number of employees. Information on the revenue departments are as follows: Department Employees Salaries Financial Planning 150 employees $10,000,000 Business Consulting 50 employees $5,000,000 (a) Allocate the $1,000,000 common costs to the two revenue departments using both methods. (b) Why are allocations called arbitrary? a. Allocation Base Financial Planning Business Consulting Proportion Amount Proportion Amount Salaries .6667 $666,667 .33 $333,333 Headcount .75 $750,000 .25 $250,000 b. Both headcount and salary could be used as allocation bases, but they result in very different allocations. This suggests that in many cases allocations are somewhat arbitrary.

...InterAmerican University of Puerto RicoMetropolitan Campus Study Session #1 Josephine Rivera BADM 5090 1. Specify the difference among need, want and demand. Provide examples for each one. According to Hiam, A. & Schewe, C. (1992) they define need; something that is necessary for a person’s physical or psychological well-being. They also define want; something that is lacking that is desirable or useful. It is formed by a person’s experiences, culture, and personality. In addition they define demand; the composite desire for particular products as measured by how consumers choose to allocate their resources among different products in a given market. Some example of things we need are; food, oxygen and mental sanity. This three main factors play a critical role in a person’s necessity to live. For something that is wanted; we can use the latest technology as an example. The media is constantly changing and updating their devices, this leads us to desire the newest products for personal and psychical reasons. Now for demand a good example can be Apple products; the consumers tend to desire it so much that the company manufactures big amounts to comply with what the buyers wants and not loose them to a competitor in their market. 2. Define the term “positioning”. Provide an example from your personal experience. Hiam, A. & Schewe, C. (1992) defines positioning; process in which a marketer......
