The National Bank was founded and established by Alexander Hamilton. The National Bank helped fund the public debt that was left from the American Revolution. The bank was capitalized at $10 million, with $8 million coming from private sources and $2 million coming from the government. The bank then had the right to issue notes or currency up to $10 million. The notes would be suitable for payment of taxes, a feature that would provide the Bank with a strong advantage over its competitors. The bank had a great resource on its side. It had the governments help. With the governments help, the National Bank was able to provide a lot of help including a ready source of loans, a principal depository for federal monies that were transferable from city to city without charge, and a clearing agent for payments on the national debt. With the bank being so successful, it allowed entrepreneurs the resources they needed to become successful. They were able to go borrow the money needed for research to make their business become successful. They were also able to go get money for business supplies that were needed. Having the National Bank helped entrepreneurs set forward and start their businesses. Without the National Bank, entrepreneurs wouldn’t have the funds available to become successful and start their businesses.
In today’s world, it can be hard to get a loan. When going for a loan the bank looks at a couple different things. The first one would be your credit. Looking at your credit, the bank can see pretty much if you pay your bills on time and if you have had a loan before. If you have had a loan before they can look and see how long it took you to pay it off, and if your payments were late. If you have good credit you are more than likely going to be able to get a loan. It may not be as much as you would like, but you will qualify for a loan. Another thing the bank…...

...Concept Development What is Internet-2? Why does it exist? What benefits is it producing? “Internet2 is a consortium led by over 220 universities working in partnership with industry and government to develop and deploy advanced network applications and technologies, accelerating the creation of tomorrow's Internet.” (https://www.wpi.edu/.../Internet2/about.html) Over the years and as the Internet gained popularity, universities were the first organizations to recognize the limitations of bandwidth as it relates to data transfer rates and the need to share information and collaborate with other research institutes, universities, and colleagues. The need to support high performance applications and share information lead to the creation of the vBNS or very-high-performance Backbone Network Service in 1995 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet2). With a consortium of various investors and partnerships including the National Science Foundation, MCI, Qwest, Level3, and 30+ universities, Internet2 was formed. Through this consortium “Internet2 provides the U.S. research and education community with a network that satisfies their bandwidth-intensive requirements. The network itself is a dynamic, robust and cost-effective hybrid optical and packet network. It furnishes a 100 Gbit/s network backbone to more than 210 U.S. educational institutions, 70 corporations and 45 non-profit and government agencies.” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet2) Their goals...

The National Bank

...Case study 2: Second National Bank 1. What do you think of the idea of having an annual off-site retreat for top management to develop the strategic plan for the organization? In my opinion, it is not a good idea because in many situations, top managers are not someone who involved directly to the strategic plan. Their main responsibility is to manage is focused on macro management process; as a result, many of them do not remember primary categories of the strategic plan; for example, in this case study, they did not even bring any copy of the plan to their meetings. Meanwhile, middle level and low level managers tend to deal with different kind of projects which are based on the strategic plan in more details. Consequently, they could figure out if the strategic plan is good enough and how it could be improved. Besides that, one of the most important factors which help recognize if it is the effective strategic plan is the strategy reviews from middle level and low level managers. However, via this case study, we can realize that no one in top management brings any review to the meetings. I think it is a really bad situation, since how the top management could adapt the plan based on the outcomes of those reviews. 2. Critique the planning process for the Second National Bank Firstly, the strategic planning of the Second National Bank should comply with organization’s mission and vision Mission: Provide excellent bank services Vision: “Exxor County’s Friendliest...

Valley National Bank

...What are the human resource issues facing the vice president's department and under which of the HR domains (e.g. Organizational Design, Staffing, Performance Management an Appraisal) does each issue belong? Identify some strategies for dealing with these issues. There are four employees under Suzanne Roberts (Vice President of Accounting at Valley National Bank); Bob Phillips, Carla Goodman, Greg Williams, and Kathy Lewis. Some of the issues facing the vice president’s department are: Staffing, Performance Management, and Appraisal. Bob Phillips came to Valley National Bank to manage through a merger. He managed/supervised only two people in his previous position and he lacked organizational and planning skills. He also has weak interpersonal skills which had created hard feelings among employees in the department. In regards to performance management, performance reviews are late up to six months and employee morale is low and attitudes toward the company have hardened. In regards to staffing, good people quit the bank and/or transferred to other departments and the replacements for those employees were done poorly in the way that the first person who walked in for an interview was hired (which means unqualified people were more than likely hired or a more qualified person did not have the opportunity to interview). Bob is very good at solving financial and accounting problems and he has an extensive knowledge of all major software programs. Another problem is Carla...

MERO Department of Management & Decision Sciences, Washington State University Small businesses continue to grow in importance to the national economy. According to the Small Business Administration, America’s 22 million small businesses generate more than half of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product and are the principal source of new jobs. The National Foundation for Women Business Owners reported that between 1987 and 1994, the number of women-owned businesses grew by 78% and women-owned firms accounted for 36% of all firms. Although the growth in the number of women-owned businesses is encouraging, the size of such businesses remains small in terms of both revenues and number of employees, especially in comparison to male-owned businesses. One explanation for this disparity is that female business ownership is concentrated primarily in the retail and service industries where businesses are relatively smaller in terms of employment and revenue as opposed to high technology, construction, and manufacturing.

Do you believe this strategy is wise? Would you suggest any change in strategy based on the ABC analysis? No, it isn’t. Get rid of the call center. Make an incentive plan for mangers in order to attract the more local business line. 10. Activity-based management (ABM) refers to managers’ use of ABC data in making business decisions.
