Board Report

...current key results that make us look the best Contribution margin of YJW | Average contribution margin in the market | 50.6% | 43.72% | Our contribution margin, high potential sale figures in the traditional market, and rising stock price prove that we are one of the most successful companies in the industry. We have made great strides in increasing our contribution margin to 50.6%, ranking second in the market. This was a result of investments geared towards automation and employee training, which in the long run, lowered production and labor costs. As our business grows in scale, our variable costs will continue to decline and our profit margin will continue to rise.  The potential traditional market estimate shows that almost a quarter of the customers within that market segment want to purchase our product. This will be an area that we will continue to capitalize on by consistently meeting our customers’ demand and earning larger market shares. Lastly, our stock price is one of the highest in the market and has seen the greatest growth over the past three years. These two figures will attract investors, allowing us to continue reducing our variable costs, improving our products, and ultimately making profit for the company.

The 2009 Chrysler-Fiat Strategic Alliance

...withdraw its partnership and give its 80 per cent stake to Cerberus for less than 1/4th of the price they bought it for. Chrysler was doing badly, and although known as the “Number Three” car in North America, it was not able to keep up and had to declare bankruptcy and was told to form a strategic alliance with a company as a part of the Obama Administration rescue plan. Fiat has had its own share of ups and downs, but in the European market it has proven to be successful. It withdrew itself from the North American market in the nineteen eighties as it could not keep up there. But now, with its strategic alliance with Chrysler, it can benefit by entering into the North American market without having to push too much as Chrysler is already a well-known brand there. The Strategic Alliance was definitely very important for Chrysler as it had huge losses in 2006, had to lay off over 13000 people, and was going bankrupt. It could not keep up with the turbulent economy and needed to be bailed out. For Fiat it made sense over GM, Toyota or Volkswagen to form an alliance with Chrysler, as it fit in the long term plans of the new CEO, Sergio Marchionne of re-entering the North American market. For Fiat...

Teamwork and Cultures

... Job satisfaction within the work place is becoming the most important factor for employees these days. However, many employers are finding that over time due to the lack of satisfaction within a particular job position the company is having a high turnover rate, less production of work and the quality of an employee’s work is poor. This is where the challenges come into play for many employers and finding ways to increase job satisfaction so businesses stay competitive and employees are happy. The responsibility of ensuring all employees are satisfied falls into the hands of the leader for that company. Incorporating ways to ensure job satisfaction encompasses several key indicators that should be included in a company’s Motivation plan and they are; providing a positive work environment, involve and increase employee engagement, providing rewards and recognitions, developing the skills of your employers, providing evaluations and monitoring job satisfaction of your employees. Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is a motivational theory that argues that while people aim to meet basic needs, they seek to meet successively higher needs in the form of a pyramid. His theory is based on the needs of an employee and pertains to motivating employees; fulfillment of these needs acts as a motivational factor to the employee. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs consist of five levels; Self-actualization, Esteem, Belongingness, Safety, and Psychological. Self-actualization is the......

Adaptive Lesson Plan

...Adapted Lesson Rose Davis SPE 514  SEQUITA LIPSCOMB Introduction I was able to observe in Ms. Brianna Roos, Special Education resource classroom the week of April 1st – April 5th, 2013 at Hamilton Creek Elementary School. On April 5th, I was able to teach my adapted Mathematics lesson to a small group of 3rd graders in the 90-minute math block. The small group contained six Specific Learning Disability students. The opportunity to perform and teach this lesson proved to be challenging, but at the same time very rewarding. Specific Learning Disabilities “Specific Learning Disability means a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using language, spoken or written, that may manifest itself in an imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell, or to do mathematical calculations, including conditions such as perceptual disabilities, brain injury, minimal brain dysfunction, dyslexia, and developmental aphasia. This does not include the learning problems that are primarily associated with visual, hearing or motor disabilities, cognitive impairment, emotional disturbance, or that of environmental, cultural, or economic disadvantages” (SLD, n.d.). Teachers and parents may look for the following patterns in students of specific learning disabilities: •Short attention span, unable to concentrate on a task...

...Gabrielle Lewis E-Business Part A: Develop an online business expansion proposal 1 Viability of product or service New Gainesville Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church is located at 1813 Floyd Road Gainesville, GA 30507. I met with Pastor Sepolen to discuss the current online presence of the church. He informed me that the only presence is Facebook. In terms of an online presence, New Gainesville SDA is virtually non-existent. Continuing my interview with Pastor Sepolen, I found out some of his goals for wanting to have an online presence. “The goal of the church is to win souls. That includes souls that are not in the neighborhood. Being online will allow us to reach more people”. I told him the first step is to analyze if going online would be a good decision. We brainstormed and came up with advantages of being online. In our research we came across a website, www.praizevision.com There slogan is “ Where technology meets worship”. The site has many churches that offer live streaming of their church services.
