...because it wasn’t passed down or changed into the system. The lack of communication was the process of this mistake, now the company will have to recall this product and label the newer addition. The course of action will take place by putting out a new policy with steps and procedures on how to pass down information for a better communication value. In this case decisions will have to be made like possible demotion, overtime or firing a team member from that position.

...Consulting National Chains Dustin Riedemann Kaplan University IT402: IT Consulting Skills Prof:  Abdellah Tazi August 21, 2013 There are many different ways to look at whether or not the national chain should change their IT applications to help support the customer loyalty program. First the consultant needs to look at all the pros and cons of both changing the applications and the pros and cons of not changing the applications. First we can look at the pros of changing the IT applications to include a customer loyalty program. A good thing that may come out of changing the IT applications would be that the national chain would hope to keep the customers that the regional chain already has. This would help them to make more money and hopefully make the merger a success. This could also attract new customers that are looking to save money when shopping for their regular groceries. By promoting the customer loyalty program and telling potential customers that if they sign up for the program that they will be saving “x” amount on certain marked products, this will more than likely start to bring in more customers to the national chain because most people are always looking for a way to save money. This will also make the national chain more money because they will have more customers coming in and out of their doors, but they will still be making money off the products that they are selling, but they may not be making as much. A con to changing the IT applications to......

...Project Report on Environment Impact Assessment The Need for EIA Every anthropogenic activity has some impact on the environment. More often it is harmful to the environment than benign. However, mankind as it is developed today cannot live without taking up these activities for his food, security and other needs. Consequently, there is a need to harmonise developmental activities with the environmental concerns. Environmental impact assessment (EIA) is one of the tools available with the planners to achieve the above-mentioned goal. It is desirable to ensure that the development options under consideration are sustainable. In doing so, environmental consequences must be characterised early in the project cycle and accounted for in the project design. The objective of EIA is to foresee the potential environmental problems that would arise out of a proposed development and address them in the project's planning and design stage. The EIA process should then allow for the communication of this information to: (a) the project proponent; (b) the regulatory agencies; and, (c) all stakeholders and interest groups. EIA integrates the environmental concerns in the developmental activities right at the time of initiating for preparing the feasibility report.In doing so, it can enable the integration of environmental concerns and mitigation measures in project development. EIA can often prevent future liabilities or......

...Week 2 Assignment-Consulting Jennifer Avalos MAN 324 March 7, 2015 Dr. John Elmer Week 2 Assignment- Consulting “A consultant is who claims expertise in a particular arena, and advises on increased efficiency, decision making, and other aspects of management (Consultant, 2012).” Throughout my career path consulting has played an important role in my everyday work experience. Being in the healthcare field we face dramatic changes when it comes to customer conduct, market dynamic forces, and regulatory demands. As a Junior Executive for Scripps Hospitals one of my focuses is to ensure value care for patients and also reduce cost and increase revenues. Also, play the role of consultant with situations that the day might bring towards our hospital. One consulting incident that I recall from not too long ago was to develop a faster process of opening and renewing contracts with insurance companies and accelerate the process of payment for services. “Most typically, the provider and payor begin negotiating contract renewals nine months before the contract is up. Most contracts are one to three years in duration, so these negotiations happen quite frequently (Weiss, 2012).” It was currently taking very long for us to serve our contract payors and that made our customer service skills below average. Insurance companies doubted on whether to renew contracts with us due to this issue. To make matters worse, it also delayed payments which affected our finances. I was......

...Adrian Payne & Pennie Frow A Strategic Framework for Customer Relationship Management In this article, the authors develop a conceptual framework for customer relationship management (CRM) that helps broaden the understanding of CRM and its role in enhancing customer value and, as a result, shareholder value. The authors explore definitional aspects of CRM, and they identify three alternative perspectives of CRM. The authors emphasize the need for a cross-functional, process-oriented approach that positions CRM at a strategic level. They identify five key cross-functional CRM processes: a strategy development process, a value creation process, a multichannel integration process, an information management process, and a performance assessment process. They develop a new conceptual framework based on these processes and explore the role and function of each element in the framework. The synthesis of the diverse concepts within the literature on CRM and relationship marketing into a single, process-based framework should provide deeper insight into achieving success with CRM strategy and implementation. ver the past decade, there has been an explosion of interest in customer relationship management (CRM) by both academics and executives. However, despite an increasing amount of published material, most of which is practitioner oriented, there remains a lack of agreement about what CRM is and how CRM strategy should be developed. The purpose of this article is to develop a...

...Consulting One of the first jobs I had was as an aide in a nursing home. The main issue I experienced there was lack of supplies for patient care and the high turnover of employees. At the beginning of each shift, there was a scramble to load the cart with clean linen and towels. It was basically a first come, first serve situation. There was never enough aides to properly take care of the patients. With each aide responsible for ten or more patients, many times patients would be confined to their beds waiting to be fed, changed, or bathed. This was not acceptable. The management was focused on profits, not care. They did not listen to the concerns of the employees that were directly involved with patient care, yet set high expectations for employee productivity. Reengineering, defined as “the fundament rethinking and radical design of business process to achieve dramatic improvements in critical, contemporary measures of performance such as cost, quality, service, and speed” (Chase, 2006). Before making any recommendation on reengineering the business, I would first evaluate the business and determine how the business operates. Looking at all aspects of the business will allow me to see the decision making process management utilizes (Business Consulting Through Development and Optimization, 2011), how they deal with problems, treat their employees and the income gained or loss by not having the proper aide to patient ratios. My InnerView, Inc., is a company that......

When evaluating MBA programs, what are the key characteristics to consider for an aspiring consultant? In other words, what are the different parameters based on which, one can shortlist & differentiate universities for a consulting major. While Consulting companies recruit heavily from a core set of schools (typically 5 or 6 top schools), almost all Consulting firms recruit from most of the top 10 or top 15 schools. When evaluating an MBA program, it is important to consider the location, interest in living there and how good the program is. One can gather this information by networking with alumni and current students. While targeting a school with consulting in mind is one way to go, it is essential to keep an open mind. Most students figure out their interests and career paths while at school and not before.......

Currently, Benchmark is a company with less than ten employees, but the growth in their building services mandates an expansion of their workforce.

Dugger Consulting An operation consulting is the process that assists various categories in business to evaluate the present status of internal methods and strategies, and improve the comprehensive operation of the company (What is Operations Consulting?). A problem that I have experienced with the consulting process at a current or past employer will be explained. The longest on and off job that I have held while in school has to be working as a sales associate at Macy’s. Working in the retail field definitely allows a person to know so much more about how a business is ran and what all goes into all the sales and profits. With this particular employer there were a few problems in the process that I have seen not personally dealt with. As an associates we were really never told how we were doing in personal sales and how we were performing in our job; the guideline for Macy’s was that managers are supposed to speak with each associate and tell them how they are doing and what improvements need to be made and what they were doing great at each quarter, but we barely were shown any information of that. I worked there a consecutive year and was not shown once at all. What would I want my client to be aware of that would help significantly in re-engineering the process? Re-engineering is defined as the systematic starting completely fresh and recreating the......

...investor may evaluate the risk of an office market relative to another by comparing the respective volatility indicators for such variables as local office employment, and/or office rental rates. Perceptions of risk either across markets or through time may be also shaped by indicators of market strength. For example, a market maybe considered more risky in periods during which the vacancy rate is in the high teens compared to periods during which the vacancy rate is below 10%. REAL ESTATE PRICE ADJUSTMENTS Rents and prices play a very important role in real estate as they do in any other market. Furthermore, rents and prices are two of the most (if not the most) important inputs that market analysis needs to provide for the assessment of the financial feasibility and viability of a project. That is why it is very important to understand how market rents and prices are determined and what mechanism drives their movements. PRICE DETERMINATION MECHANISM As in the case of any other market, real estate rents/prices are determined through the interaction of supply and demand or sellers and buyers in the marketplace. Figure 2.11 shows that graphically the market rent/price is determined as the intersection of the demand and the supply curves. This intersection point represents the rent/price at which the number of willing buyers/tenants equals the number of willing landlords/sellers. In mathematical terms this is the price at which QD= QS. To understand......
