...business and economics, gap analysis is a tool that helps companies compare actual performance with potential performance. At its core are two questions: "Where are we?" and "Where do we want to be?" If a company or organization does not make the best use of current resources, or foregoes investment in capital or technology, it may produce or perform below its potential. This concept is similar to the base case of being below the production possibilities frontier. Gap analysis identifies gaps between the optimized allocation and integration of the inputs (resources), and the current allocation level. This reveals areas that can be improved. Gap analysis involves determining, documenting, and approving the variance between business requirements and current capabilities. Gap analysis naturally flows from benchmarking and other assessments. Once the general expectation of performance in the industry is understood, it is possible to compare that expectation with the company's current level of performance. This comparison becomes the gap analysis. Such analysis can be performed at the strategic or operational level of an organization. Gap analysis is a formal study of what a business is doing currently and where it wants to go in the future. It can be conducted, in different perspectives, as follows: Organization (e.g., human resources) Business direction Business processes Information technology Gap analysis provides a foundation for measuring investment of time,......

...Business Communication Trends Crystal Schultz XCOM/285 December 7, 2014 Janet Waldron Companies are changing everyday due to business trends. There are currently ten business trends. These range from technology to balancing work and families. The main priority for any company is to grow and gain strength. This is done by providing both employees and customers what is needed to be successful. Most employees have families so they need job flexibility. There are now regulations that need to be met concerning diversity in the work place. Then there are the things that are required of employees. The ability to work in a team environment is one of those requirements. Most companies are following one of these trends. Technology plays a huge role in my daily business communication. I am required to contact clients by phone and email every day. There is often times that require that I call for a follow up and then have to e-mails that were lost or misunderstood. Before the technology advancements I would have to write purchase orders and invoices to mail the customer or client. It took longer to receive payment and when there was a problem it took double the time. I am now able to call to ensure the customer received the products and allow them to submit a payment. This also allows the time to do extra work daily. When I get to the office in the morning I will respond to any e-mails we received then move on to sending out new invoices that are due payment.
