...Effect of Unethical Behavior Article Analysis Ethics can be defined as “that branch of philosophy dealing with values relating to human conduct, with respect to the rightness and wrongness of certain actions and to the goodness and badness of the motives and ends of such actions.” ("Ethics," 2012). In the article Unethical Behavior In The Workplace, If takes a look at what are the things done to promote ethics but also how some situations just can’t be avoided when it comes to being ethical in accounting practices. We all learn at an early age what is right and wrong from our parents to teachers telling us so that when we are adults we can have morals and ethics in the world. Despite these best efforts of many, people and corporations still act unethical and although their crimes do not cause physical harm is does destroy people and companies in a much worse way and that is financially. Some situations I can tell from the article where people act unethical are “An accountant may embezzle funds from his or her employer for financial gain. Or perhaps the CFO of a publicly traded corporation may prepare financial statements to appear as though the company is performing much better than it actually is, because he or she wants their stock portfolio to increase.” (“Unethical Behavior In The Workplace,” 2008, para. ). Another one it shows an example is “failure for an accountant to conduct an in-depth analysis when preparing and revising financial information. There are many...

The Procter & Gamble Company (P&G) is a global force of nature. William Procter and James Gamble formed Procter & Gamble, a partnership in Cincinnati, Ohio, to manufacture and sell candles and soap. The partnership began October 31, 1837, with paid-in capital of $7, 192.24. It has grown to be the leading maker of household products in the United States. According to the company‘s website, www.pg.com, P&G‘s operations are sustainable and go beyond the core of their manufacturing operations, extending to a holistic end-to-end view of opportunities. Throughout the twentieth century, Procter & Gamble continued to prosper. The company moved into other countries, both in terms of manufacturing and product sales, becoming an international corporation with its 1930 acquisition of the Newcastle upon Tyne-based Thomas Hedley Co.

...MM577 Sales Management Keller Graduate of Management Prof. Bob Schaumann Kimberly will need to communicate with her superior regarding the conversation with the client. I feel Kimberly intention is to establish a valuable relationship to the customer by being honest, customer focused and truly committed to exceeding your customer's needs. Kimberly intention is to meet the customer's timeline, requirements, and expectations in an enthusiastic and ethical manner. Mis-using the company assets and expense account fraud, and cheating the company can be harmful. If Kimberly helps the customer with what they need, they will come back to her for what they want. Kimberly should have another meeting with the client to clarify the conversation so there will not be any misunderstanding. Kimberly main concerns should understand the selling services to the client, which sometimes a salesperson can slip into some bad practices or unethical practices. Salespeople sometimes face pressure to be top salesperson. Nevertheless, a salesperson should not want to become someone who does whatever it takes to win a client. Practicing bad unethical behavior can lead to a disaster. Giving brides will set Kimberly up for disaster for unethical behaviors which can have serious ramifications, such as loss of respect and trust. Having good ethical standards promotes goodwill and builds long-term relationships, which Kimberly must always do, to keep her......

In full multi-user mode, dozens, hundreds or even thousands of users may be logged into a single Linux machine simultaneously, each user editing files and executing multiple programs simultaneously.

(a) Distinguish among the following bases of comparison: (1) intracompany: Compares an item or financial relationship within a company in the current year with the same item or relationship 1+ years. (2) industry averages: This basis compares an item or financial relationship of a company with industry averages. (3) intercompany: Compares an item or financial relationship of one company with the same item or relationship in one or more competing companies. (b) Give the principal value of using each of the three bases of comparison. The intracompany basis is useful in detecting changes in financial relationships and significant trends within a company. The intercompany basis provides insight into a company’s competitive position. The industry average basis provides information about a company’s performance 3. Two popular methods of financial statement analysis are horizontal analysis and vertical analysis. Explain the difference between these two methods. Horizontal analysis measures the dollar and percentage increase or decrease of an item over a period.

It has no money to invest, but it could borrow money to invest. It has been approved by a bank to borrow either 1 million dollars or 1 million pounds for one year. It can borrow dollars at 6% or British pounds at 5.5% for one year. It can invest in a risk-free dollar deposit at 4% for one year or a risk-free British deposit at 3% for one year. Determine the expected profit or loss (in dollars) if General Instruments pursues a strategy to capitalize on the expected depreciation of the pound. ANSWER: Initial amount borrowed = 1,000,000 pounds Dollars received when the pounds are converted to dollars = 1,000,000 * 1.70 = $1,700,000. Total dollar amount at the end of 1 year = $1,700,000 x 1.04= $1,768,000. Total owed on the pounds borrowed = 1,000,000*1.055 = 1,055,000 pounds. Expected amount of dollars needed to repay the loan = 1,055,000 x 1.65 = $1,740,750. Profit = $1,768,000 - $1,740,750 = $27,250.

...3. The similarities in both Figures 1-3 and 1-4 is that they are both set in a circular motion and have the same sections (Planning, Analysis, Design, Implementation, and Maintenance). The difference is that Figure 1-3 is in a constant circle going through the different processes in an everlasting motion and Figure 1-4 is in a spiral motion until it ends which would represent the end of the project. 5. Figures 1-3 and 1-12 are similar as they are both takes on the SDLC. The difference is that Figure 1-3 has 5 sections that are in a circular motion. Figure 1-12 only has 4 sections and the process repeats on User Design and Construction. Having the repeats on only 2 different sections as opposed to all 5 sections would allow for a faster project completion. 6. Figure 1-9 has the same problems as the traditional waterfall SDLC as it is the traditional waterfall SDLC with the Design section split into 2 sections, it is still only moving downward and not able to revisit any of the previous sections. Converting Figure 1-9 into a circle would fix this problem as with Figure 1-3 it will allow for revisiting the different sections if there are issues with the project. 7. OOAD differs from traditional methods as it combines data and processes into a single entity called an object. Thus allowing for more reusability with the objects.

...Homework Assignment Week 1 1. Why is it important to use systems analysis and design methodologies when building a system? Why not just build the system in whatever way seems to be “quick and easy”? What value is provided by using an “engineering” approach? It is important to use the systems analysis and design methodologies when building a system to make sure the system is created to better the company or customer the system is being built for. Using the "quick and easy" way to build a system can cause the system to be sloppy and not working properly. Using this method can cause more issues than it does fixing it. Using the "engineering" approach is most useful when creating a system for a dangerous workplace. Using this style is an approach in loss prevention placing emphasis on physical features of the workplace as a potential cause of injuries. 10. Compare Figures 1–10 and 1–11. What similarities and differences do you see? The similarities in the two diagrams are that they both lead to a completed system. The differences in the diagrams is that figure 1-10 condenses the process into four steps, where figure 1-11 has it split into six steps. Also figure 1-10 is a constant circle, always starting back at the beginning to make sure the new system is adequate and best serves the company or customer. Figure 1-11 uses a spiral affect, same idea as figure 1-10, just does not seem to put as much emphasis in the beginning when the process starts to repeat......
