...Memorandum In the article titled “Apple in His Own Image” published in The Wall Street Journal Wednesday, November 2, 2011 writer Jessica E. Vascellaro brings to light some of the key differences between former CEO Steve Jobs and current CEO Tim Cook Tim Cook is already, if not remaking, at least tweaking Apple in his own image. He’s been reshuffling Apple’s corporate structure and changing some of its corporate philosophies, The Wall Street Journal reports. He has, for example announced that Apple will now match employee donations to charities and nonprofits up to $10,000 a year, this is something Steve Jobs always opposed. Tim Cook has already split the business (Apple) into a sales arm and a marketing arm. Mr. Time Cook, as you embark on your journey as new CEO of Apple here are a few things you should look out for when transforming Apple into a Team/group company. * Social Loafing- individuals in the workforce put forth less effort when they work in teams than when they work alone. * Synergy- an effect wherein the total output of a team is greater than the combined outputs of individual members working alone. * Social Facilitation- Tendency for Performance to improve or decline in the presents of others. Transforming a company into groups/ teams has its benefits; however I strongly believe tweaking Apple into a “team” would be the best idea. My recommendation for you moving forward as new CEO would be to make a slow transition with reshuffling......

The company has garnered enough earnings enabling the owners to pay reasonable salaries, although research revealed that the salary level is about one-half or two-thirds of salaries paid by other horse supply businesses with similar size.

...Memorandum Date: December 5, 2012 To: Herbert Hainer, CEO Adidas From: Team A Consulting Group Subject: Financial Analysis Dear Herbert: Thanks to the firm giving our company the opportunity to review Adidas financial statements and make this analysis report and presented to CEO attention. Using 2011 annual report our consulting team analyzed data provided by accounting department and calculated the following ratios. As Current Ratio we have 1.53 : 1. For Acid-Test (Quick) Ratio we have .73 : 1. As Receivable Turnover we have 7.9 times. As Inventory Turnover we have 3.04 times. The previous ratios relates to Liquidity Ratios. As we mentioned above Current Ratio is 1.53, which is good but should be better if this ratio could be 2:1, which indicates company has good solvency. As we both know a healthy quick ratio should be between 0.5 and 1, where company is good so far with 0.73. Receivable turnover ratio tells us that company collects 1.5 times in a month for its accounts receivable. Inventory turnover tells us the that company’s inventory is sold and replaced in a period of 120 days. The best way to know if the above liquidity ratios are good or not, is by comparing them with competitor’s ratios. According to our principal competitor’s annual report, which is Nike, Adidas manage almost similar ratios besides current ratio 2.9, quick ratio 1.8, and inventory turn over 4.2.

...MEMORANDUM TO: Mr. Lim FROM: Ms. Ixara DATE: 4 August 2013 ------------------------------------------------- RE: Tardiness Issue After reading the case and information given, it could be concluded that Amran is a good worker yet he has a problem regarding tardiness. There are some beneficial recommendations that could be implemented for the purpose of improvement as well as the consequences if actions are being made. 1. Flexible time Management could introduce a flexible time system to all employees so that they will have equal workload. Flexible time will also help Amran in order to manage his time between personal and work life. Since he has to get his six children off to school and to the baby sitter, it is impossible for him to get to work by 7.30 am. Thus, he may come and start working by 8.00 am and finish at 5.00 pm for instance and he must complete the required hours of a day. Employees may come late yet they must make up by going back home late. Unfortunately, if this action taken, it may seem to create difficulties especially when there are rush orders from the customers. The employees might not be able to complete and finish the task on time then. Further issues will be resulting from the dissatisfaction of customers due to the late delivery for example. 2. Work shift Next alternative that management could implement is by introducing work shift which includes day shift and night shift. By doing this, Amran will be much easier if he works...

...Memorandum To: Board of Directors From: Industry 49 RE: Future direction of Boost Date: December 12, 2013 Accomplishments During our time at Boost we managed to succeed by adjusting our strategy every year to maintain a competitive edge in our industry. At this time we are the third ranked company overall in our industry with an “A” credit rating, significantly above expected investor returns, and a steadily increasing earnings per share. Issues · The first issue is that competition in the industry is high. Our two biggest competitors at this time are DuCaine and Cao Ni Ma, who both have similar strategies to us, yet we charge a slightly higher price. This higher price could be an issue in the long term, causing customers to go with a similar product at a cheaper price with one of our competitors, so it is critical to remain close. With the competition being so tight in the market, price wars have made the industry toxic in the past, so maintaining a fair yet competitive price is critical to success. · The second issue is that N.A. costs per pair near the high in the industry as seen in Figure 1. The current cost of production per pair is $38.17 while the average is $30.41. When producing over four million shoes this is an additional expense of over eight million dollars compared to the average in the industry. While this is mostly due to the higher quality of the shoe’s we produce it is an issue that needs to be addressed in order to save money in the long...

...Subject: Reinforcement Memorandum Captain Munoz, this memorandum is in response to the assignment given to Class 24 on the morning of 09-13-2014, shortly after Class was admonished for questions regarding under garments and spandex pants that were asked 09-11-2014 in front of our instructor, Officer Duke Hettick regarding the 'uniform of the day' for the physical training and arrest and control class session 09-13-2014. The answers to the five assigned questions are as follows. Question #1, Why is it important to understand instructions? It is very important to understand instructions in the academy to keep the uniformity and operate as a unit, as a team if you will. Following instructions in a law enforcement career will keep me apprised of new information and keep me alive. Following instructions also show that I am paying attention to directives given by the Porterville College Reserve Academy Staff. Following instructions also shows that I am able to form a thought and carry it through. When you are involved in an emergency situation you will generally fall back on training and experience and react more calmly and efficiently and be more of a solution than adding to the chaos, if you do not have any training or did not understand your training and instructions you will be more trouble than help in the emergency situation. In another example if a cadet can not follow instructions he will likely be the only one...
