Re: Environmental Scan

Confidential After completing the environmental scan, Tanglewood will have a tough time filling the jobs in the future, but there are people ready to fill the jobs. Tanglewood has a written policy that new hires will have to start from the bottom to the managerial spots. Having a great workforce is key along with have higher quality associates by looking for motivated college graduates. One of the problems Tanglewood might have is that most college grads don’t want to work at the bottom in order to move up to manager’s positions. A lot of people don’t view retail as a great job because it sometimes requires long hours, low pay and conflict with lower-level associates. The action plan forecast for labor requirements for the next year will be 4845 store associates, 42 shift leaders, 105 department managers, 21 assistant managers, and 5 store managers. With the policy for hiring within will require a greater number of store associates, and promoting the associates who have completed training. To fill the other positions Tanglewood will need to plan. Tanglewood will need 4845 store associates for next year. In order to get a better quality associates there needs to be a flexible work time and better pay. Even offering associates a chance to buy stock in the company .Having store discounts is another way. Changing up the tasks which will allow associates to work in different department which will increase the knowledge of the associate .Encouraging feedback from associates will strengthen the bond of the workforce by showing that anyone can make a different. Hiring kids still in High School can help out in fill the spots during the peak seasons and possibly having a future Manager. Offering programs that teach associates the ways Tanglewood operates and…...

...than $50,000 in this area than the previous year. I would suggest that the budgeted amount be somewhere between the year 7 & 8 amounts, given the positive prediction that sales will increase, which would put it between $1273867 and $1322075. This over statement in this category has also led to the company to under budget their Operating Income which they have budgeted at $80585. With the prediction of selling more units than year 8, the company should be budgeting a higher Operating Income than the previous year’s amount of $97,533. They definitely should not be indicating that they will be selling more but making less. This would be a bad financial sign for the company, as it is showing a lack of leadership and management skills. 2. No budget can be perfect, so keeping this in mind; one would expect variances to be present within the flexible budget. The variances found within this flexible budget, however, seem to highlight the flaws that were noticed and explained above. The first variance that is displayed is the unfavorable variance of $130,065.00 in Net Sales. This is due to the fact that the company sold 3423 units, not the 3510 that was placed in the budget. The variance is considered unfavorable, as the company did not make as much in net sales as it had budgeted for. The positive side for the company is that it did, in fact, turn around the negative sales trend that existed between years 7 & 8. The next variance comes in Direct Materials. ......

Jet 2 Task 2

...Rachel Johnson Addy JET Task 2 March 29, 2014 JET Task 2 1. A budget is an itemized estimate of expected income as well as estimated expenses over a specified period of time. The reason to design a budget is to regulate spending. There are multiple causes of concern with Competition Bikes budget plan. The main cause for concern is that the sales estimated for year 9 is 3,510 units. This estimate is not supported by past sales data. Due to the current economic status, the amount of units sold from year 7 to 8 decreased 15% according to the horizontal analysis. Rider sponsorships were also reduced and will most likely remain limited in the future (WGU, 2014). There is some misleading and inaccurate information posted within the budget. Under the Selling, General, and Administrative breakdown “utilities” is listed at $150,000 on the vertical analysis for year 8 and year 9. Then there is another listing for “utilities and services” of $54,000. This is misleading because this entry was not listed in the expenses from the previous year. Another cause of concern is that the cash budget is not included in the uncollected receivables. CB makes expensive bikes so there should be room for uncollectable accounts. The uncollectable receivables budget could be used to cover the any uncollected payments. The reduction of sponsorships and the slow economy could possibly cause a rise in uncollectable accounts. There is also some concern because the operating income is......

List all the frequency components produced. - 1498, 1500, and 1520KHz 3.If a carrier is amplitude modulated what causes the sideband frequencies? - The non-linear mixing of the carrier and intelligence frequencies. 
 4.What determines the bandwidth of emission for an AM transmission? - It is twice the frequency of the highest audio frequency transmitted. The upper sideband is fc +FM where fc is the carrier frequency and FM is the modulation (audio) frequency .The lower sideband is fc – FM. The total bandwidth is 2*FM 5.Explain the difference between a sideband and a side frequency. - A sideband carries the modulation or "information". in old fashioned AM and FM transmission schemes, a carrier is broadcast in addition to the sideband(s). Only the sideband is needed to communicate. A spurious frequency that happens when a carrier is transmitted has no added "information" and just adds to the transmission bandwidth. Sometimes these occur by intermixing within the transmitter. a common example is CB splatter from overdrive of RF amps. 
 9.Draw a diagram (or indicate which text book Figure # shows this) of a carrier wave envelope when modulated by 50% by a sinusoidal wave. Indicate on the diagram the dimension from which the percentage of modulation is......

Tanglewood Casebook 2

...Acquire or Develop Talent: The Tanglewood organization currently does not have a strong process in acquiring or developing new talent. From the case study we find that Tanglewood would like to focus on having a workforce of committed, qualified individuals who will continue the Tanglewood tradition; yet they have no solid recruiting process into place. The Tanglewood organization also has opportunity around their development process, understanding they want team members to feel valued and know that their opinions count, but just because a team member makes influential suggestions does not necessarily qualify them to be leaders. Though they have a lot of culture and tradition there are not in processes in place to help them acquire and develop the talent they are hoping to take the stores to the next level. A strong staffing strategy would focus on acquiring the right talent that can “hit the ground running.” When an organization has the ability to have a strong acquisition process the development will come easy for the team members. If the Tanglewood organization placed an acquisition process into place they could definitely see potential to expand and grow at the rate that they desire. Hire Yourself or Outsource: Tanglewood’s current hiring process is all done in house. Human Resource/ operations manager is responsible for planning, recruitment, and initial screening and department managers interview and hire candidates. It seems as though Tanglewood......

Linda Vaughn | Asimo Unit 2 assignment 2 | AbstractASIMO is a humanoid Robot that was built to genuinely help people. Linda Vaughn | Linda Vaughn GS1145T 10/3/2015 Why Create ASIMO? ASIMO is humanoid robot created to duplicate human motion and genuinely help people. ASIMO took more than two decades of persistent study, research, trial and error before achieving a humanoid robot. ASIMO's design, development and operation rely on many different disciplines including Mathematics, Physics, Anatomy, Engineering and Computer Science. In 1986 Honda engineer’s set out to create a walking humanoid robot early models (E1, E2, and E3) focused on developing legs that could simulate the walk of a human. Models (E4, E5, and E6) focused on developing walk stabilization and climbing stairs. Then the head, arms and body were added to improve balance. Hondas first robot P1 was rather rugged standing at 6’2 and weighing at 386lbs. P2 had a more friendly design. P3 model was more compact standing at 5’2 and weighing 287lbs. ASIMO can run, walk on uneven slopes and surfaces turn smoothly and reach and grab for objects. ASIMO can also comprehend and respond to simple voice commands. It can also recognize the face of a selective group of individuals using camera eyes. It can also map environment and register stationary objects and can avoid moving objects as it moves......
