How the decisions were made * After reviewing the case study and historical data that was present in the form of interview, email and newsletter; the project took another whole new life. The decision making was based largely upon the available information and initial outcomes were largely contributed to the resources mentioned earlier. The path document was found from the data and resources available in the case study. The WBS was indeed a challenge given the schedules and estimates for this project. The management of human resources especially because our project needed scheduling depending upon the developers’ availability was also another challenge. To best manage the list of individuals it was a given that the software provided was a huge aid in managing the best usage of the available resources in terms of vendors, talent and management.

The tasks were assigned to individuals after careful reviewing of educational background and skills that they bring to the table. Understanding their experiences and group dynamics also played a large role in delegating tasks to people. The aim was to reduce as much wastage in terms of resources and maximize productivity in terms of using the right talent, among the right teams with limited time and schedule as well as bring appropriate results at every phase of the project.

How the above decisions affect Project Implementation * The decisions affect the implementation of the project because utilization of the resources in an orderly fashion plans for fast track results. In order to evaluate the maximized outputs from the team it is important that the teams are evaluated in terms of storming, norming etc. Another thing to keep in mind is the impact of procedures and the policies on the project. Employees are dependent upon the policies. Many policies need changes, approval or altering depending upon the project…...

Task 1

...Profit maximization is the act of seeking 1. Total revenue = income generated by business Total cost = fixed costs + marginal costs Accounting profit from this standpoint is total revenue – the total cost = profit. Profit maximization from this standpoint is quite simply increasing your profit to as high a level as possible. 2. Marginal cost is the extra cost incurred per additional unit of product Marginal revenue is the extra revenue generated per additional unit of product A firm looking for profit maximization from the marginal revenue to marginal cost perspective is going to find the intersecting point between marginal revenue and marginal cost. Profit maximization occurs when marginal revenue equals zero but never below. B. Marginal revenue is the extra revenue that is added for every unit of output that is added. For Company A, marginal revenue follows a steady decrease as additional units are added. C. Marginal cost is calculated as additional costs that are incurred for each additional unit of output that is added. For Company A, marginal cost follows a steady increase as additional units are added. D. Company A can reach profit maximization when they produce 8 units of product. It is at this point that marginal cost and marginal revenue intersect and they are able to attain the highest level of profit. E. If marginal revenue is greater than marginal cost then output should be increased until they are equal F. Subsequently, if marginal cost is......

...EGT 1 Task 1 A. 1. The profit maximization approach used when total revenue and total cost are compared is the largest positive gap or profit gained between total revenue less total cost. In the table provided the largest profit or profit maximization would be $540. When you produce 8 items profit is at its highest point. To calculate total revenue you take the price times the quantity and to calculate total cost you take the sum of variable and fixed costs. 2. The profit maximization approach used when marginal revenue and marginal cost are compared is to take the marginal revenue less the marginal cost. In this process you look at how each additional unit affects total revenue and total cost. Marginal revenue is equal to the change of total revenue divided by change in quantity and Marginal cost is equal to the change in total cost divided by change in quantity. Once marginal cost exceeds marginal revenue it is not effective to produce the product and there is no longer a profit maximization. The profit maximization approach when using marginal revenue and marginal cost is to make as many products as you can until marginal cost equals marginal revenue. B. 1. Marginal revenue it the change in total revenue divided by the change in quantity. To get total revenue so that you can calculate marginal revenue you need to take the price times quantity less total cost. Marginal revenue becomes elastic and stays constant when there is perfect competition. But marginal revenue usually...

Management has expressed the possibility to implement a new Human Resource Information System (HRIS) with the ability to interact with the payroll functions. The current HR process has several draw backs that are impacting GenRays. In Addition, the payroll function currently does not interact with the HR process effectively. GenRays’ current human resource functions has several drawbacks that has hindered the company from growing and expanding. The First drawback is the ability to recruit the best applicants for positions both internally and externally. Internally, employees are limited on their ability to apply for positions with the business and monitor where they are in the hiring process. Additionally; management does not have the capability to search those applicants and match them to positions that need to be filled. Another factor limiting...

...HRIS Implementation Implications GenRay 10/01/2014 The steps designated in the Work Breakdown structure were given in five different steps. First, assessing the hardware needs of the new HRIS software. Second, obtaining the required hardware and installing the new software onto it. Third, moving all employee data and records from the old HR databases to the new, more robust HRIS system. Fourth and fifth are very similar, training for both Managers and employees in the two new systems of records, HRIS and payroll. When assessing the hardware needs of the new HRIS software Kendall had to pay close attention to the required specifications. This may have taken additional research beyond learning the specs and delving deeper into equipment that may be unfamiliar. Conversely, the possibility exists that GenRay already possessed the correct hardware but the terminology of the HRIS specification guide was unclear or different and thus create confusion. However, all these obstacles would be Kendalls to overcome and gain a sufficient understand so he could use his knowledge for the next phase of the project. With a firm knowledge of the hardware specifications of the new HRIS system, Kendalls next task was to provide an assessment report to Drew. The assessment would include a detailed list of the hardware which needed to be acquired to meet the requirements of the HRIS system. This would take into account the existing IT infrastructure and the new hardware items would be......

Task 1

...Parkland hospital was first built as a charity hospital in 1894 in Dallas Texas. It is also historically known as the hospital where President John F. Kennedy was rushed to after he was fatally wounded in 1963 by an assassin. Since then Parkland Hospital has morphed into a billion dollar organization where patients from all different backgrounds come seeking medical attention on a daily basis. How has it come to be this way? There could be many reasons. One could argue that the introduction of Medicare and Medicaid contributed tremendously to Parkland's growth. Before 1965 Parkland Hospital has always seen a steady growth, but shortly after the signing of Medicare and Medicaid into law in 1965, there was a sudden spike in growth activity within Parkland's organization. This growth could have been contributed to the influx of money coming in from medicare payments going to the hospital. Three years after the Medicare and Medicaid was signed into law beginning from 1968 through 1973, Parkland opened 9 new specialty care units. In 1978 Parkland had to form a patient care committee to review Medicare and patient services studies and to look at ways to ensure Parkland's long-term viability (Parkland, 2014). At this present time Parkland hospital has 861 adult beds, 107 neonatal beds and a number of clinics in the surrounding neighborhoods . They see a combination of indigent, elderly, psychiatric and inmate patients everyday. According to Parkland's 2013 financial......

...Task 1 – Part A GenRays Matrix Template Project Management Knowledge Areas Recommended Tool(s) Project Charter, Facilitation Technique Project Integration Management Interviews, Product Analysis Project Scope Management Justification for Tool The project charter will be used for this knowledge management area because it defines the HRIS projects purpose, objectives, requirements, risks, and budget, which is important for this top-down, overall view of the project. The Facilitation Technique will also be used because it not only facilitates the development of the project charter, but will help the project team members accomplish their tasks through brainstorming, problem solving, meeting management, and conflict resolution. Interviews with GenRays senior leaders, department heads, and staff will be used for this knowledge management area to determine what the most beneficial aspects of an HRIS system are to the company. The results of the interviews will be used to help identify and define the features and functions of the project’s deliverables. Product Analysis will also be used to help determine which vendor’s pre-packaged HRIS system best meets the company’s needs, by analyzing the HRIS requirements, the product breakdown, the systems required, and the value of the product, and comparing to the offerings and information provided by the potential vendors that have already been identified.

...Utah Opera & Symphony Merger JFT2 Organizational Management ~ Task 1 Western Governors University January 22, 2012 THEORY OF MOTIVATION In order to support the merger, Bill Bailey needs to address his subordinates with the merger in a supportive way. The Utah Opera Organization and the Utah Symphony are both dealing with surmountable obstacles in regards to the survival of the arts. It would be beneficial in the long run, for the future of the arts to stand as one mighty organization rather than two separate entities. There has always been strength in numbers. Bill Bailey can support the merger using McClellard’s Need Theory. The merger will give the Opera a chance to overcome their current issues with finances and production. The need for achievement which indicates a desire to accomplish something difficult is a prime example of why the merger should be supported. (Kreitner, 2008). The Opera is under pending stress and without the merger the Opera may not survive in the long run. With the merger the Opera will have a better chance of success and achievement. The merger will also increase the affiliations the Opera currently has. Social relationships are fundamental for the success of the merge. These relationships will help ensure the future success of the merge. The merger also brings the opportunity to teach and encourage each member from the other company. The merge will bring new goals to help achieve optimal success. ......
