Case Name: Daniel Dobbins Distillery Student Name: Hechuan Lou (Serena) Date: 10-10-2015

1. Please give a brief summary of the issue facing management in this case.
Daniel Dobbins Distillery Inc. Was planning to request a loan request for $3 million from National Bank of Nashville, Tennessee and they need to submit their 1988 financial statements. The issue is how they make the report to the bank about the loss of $814,000. Is the barrel costs and warehouse labor should charge to inventory? 2. In your opinion, what costs should be included in Dobbin’s inventory and why?
In my opinion,the cost of barrels and warehousing should be included in Dobbin’s inventory. Because the maturing or aging process also belong to the part of manufacturing process. The whiskey was not ready for sale until it was aged and therefore the aging barrel needed to be included in product cost. As inventory costs include all the direct costs involved in the production process till the finished goods. 3. Assuming Dobbins decided to charge barrel costs (but not other warehousing and aging costs) to inventory, what 1988 income statement items would change? What asset amounts on the balance sheet would change and what would the new amount(s) be? Assume that this change was made five years ago – i.e. this was the policy for all prior years.
The subtotals of cost of product charged to sales will increase, the total of other costs charge to COGS will decrease. Because the barrel costs was included in inventory as they belong to the part of manufacturing process, it should be considered as a product cost.
The amount of the inventory asset will increase, the new amount would be $…...

Also, although the future may see a new fusion between work and leisure, the present inferred separation of the two has some immediate implications. Since for some groups in society, leisure is probably more important to the general quality of life than is work (Dubin, 1956; Goldthorpe, 1968) and since there has been increasing concern with the quality of life (Campbell, 1976; Seashore & Taber, 1975; Spink, 1975), we may need to show greater concern with improving the quality of nonwork life. Furthermore, improving the quality of work life for those who are nonwork centered may result in no improvement in either life quality or organizational performance (Hulin & Blood, 1968; London, Crandall, & Seals, 1977), and this possibility has received little attention. A second reason for studying work and nonwork advanced by Porter et al. (1975) is the likelihood that leisure time will increase in the society of the future. As automation eliminates many jobs and as routine jobs tend to disappear, the......

One way to interpret an overview is to think of it as looking overliterally as looking beyond. It is in this sense that this overview is prepared. Initial Observations Two initial observations have struck me. 1) Leadership must ~urely mean followership. 12) Leadership is interestingto us because it occurs within organizations. Of clearly secondary importance for students of organizations is leadership expressed in informal groups, in natural groups, and in temporary groups. Yet, in this volume these simple points seem to slide by unnoticed and ignored to the peril of clarity in presenting and interpreting results. Another observation: 3)......

Attacks Against Unix and Windows Network

...serious security problems. As a matter of fact, Windows has a bad security record when it comes to operating systems (Dubin, 2005, p. 123). There is need for the company to create a set of layered defenses and avoid the idea of running capricious programs. It is also better for the company to substitute programs that have a terrible security track record with more reliable programs (Dubin, 2005, p. 127). The role of the Company information security officers is to ensure that the windows and Unix/Linux servers are secured from shortcomings and vulnerabilities; otherwise the company may risk being targeted by hackers (Brown, 2011, p. 58). The dynamic internet ecosystem sees the myriad of VLAN switches, firewalls, routers, and other devices, thus making servers and devices unreachable from a simple configuration error (Brown, 2011, p. 185-9). Today, cyber criminals are more organized than before, it is therefore paramount for the company to react with focus and effective stratagem in the key areas of technology (Brown, 2011, p. 219). Information security officers are therefore properly trained and well informed of all advancements regarding technological improvements in the communication industry. For example, the security personnel are well trained to monitor occurrences of reverse social engineering, social engineering and shoulder surfing and how to avoid them (Dubin, 2005, p. 128).

Windows and Unix Security

...firewalls and anti virus software in place, that way the information is more secure. Keep in mind -- securing your system can be a lot of work, securing your system may cost time (and money) today, but prevents much greater costs in the future. Attacks against Unix and Windows network services have increased dramatically in the recent past, and show no signs of abating. Because security vulnerabilities are constantly being revealed, staying informed about recent security issues is crucial. There is need for the company to create a set of layered defenses and avoid the idea of running capricious programs.

Ethics in Leadership

...Now we know, on average, that there are ethical employees at these firms. However, the employees did not lead them to their corporate demise or negative public perception. It was leadership culture without social responsibility as a cornerstone.  And the results can be devastating. It can destroy a schools reputation. Destroy a company’s financial footing by eroding the confidence of the investors. In short, the lack of ethical leadership will almost always end badly for all concerned. Five Ethical Leadership Behaviors Ethics are what you do while values are what you say.  Ethical leadership means that people look at your behavior and what you do, not just what you say.  Unethical behavior kills leadership. According to Andrew Dubin, there are five ethical leadership behaviors.  These include: * Be honest and trustworthy. This will build creditabilty * Pay attention to all stakeholders.  This enhances the team concept * Build community. This lead to having a culture that is goal oriented * Respect the individual. The golden rule. * Accomplish silent victories.  Let others receive praise and recognition What NOT to do: There are three behaviors that leaders must be aware of that can kill ethical leadership.  They are: * Hypocrisy.  If you preach one thing and do another, you undermine any moral authority you have.  Don’t expect others to work the entire week-end while you are off on a boat somewhere having fun. * Arrogance.  If you......

Main Discussion: Importance of Collective Bargaining: Collective bargaining involves employers and trade unions negotiating terms on behalf of employee, however collective barging does not only include negotiations but also includes the process of resolving labour-management conflicts. Therefore, some could state that collective bargaining is a recognised way of creating a system of industrial theory of law. Collective bargaining could be seen as a method of introducing civil rights in the industry, meaning management should be conducted by rules than uninformed decision making. It establishes rules, which define and restrict the traditional authority exercised by the management. Dubin (1954)[1] famously describes collective bargaining as ‘the great social invention that has institutionalised industrial conflict ‘ (p52). A fair point made by Dubin as he suggested......

U.S West vs Cipriano

...Perry Dubin. 4. Defendants argued that the venue is improper in New York based on the fact that they reside, was approached by Dubin, and signed all the documents pertaining to the Note in California. 5. Defendants argued that plaintiff is not the holder of the Note in due course because plaintiff failed to perform due diligence in researching defendants’ finances prior to enabling them to invest. Thus, they were not bound to the Note. 6. Defendants contend that plaintiff is not the holder in due course. Issue: Is plaintiff liable for participating in the fraudulent activity and if so, should plaintiff be relieved of the title of holder of the Note? No, debtors failed to show the court that the assignee was guilty of any fraud. Furthermore, evidence clearly stated that plaintiff had no actual knowledge of the alleged fraud. Thus, under N.Y Uniform Commercial Code 3 – 305 and Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 56, unless it could be proven that the holder had actual knowledge of the fraudulent conduct which was used to induce the defendants to execute the Note, the plaintiff is the holder in due course. Analysis: The court finds that: 1. Defendants have not asserted any defense that could possibly relieve plaintiff’s title as holder in due course of the Note. 2. Defendant’s own evidence clearly relieves plaintiff of any actual knowledge of Dubin’s alleged fraudulent activities. 3. The claims of frauds are towards Dubin in......

Consequence of Taxes

...of Direct taxes include income tax, corporate tax, and any tax imposed on property. Indirect taxes, on the other hand, include, value added tax, sales tax, per unit tax and excise tax. In this paper, I will discuss excise taxes and also the impact of taxation. According to (Kaplow, 512), excise taxes are paid when certain goods such as gasoline are purchased. Excised taxes are put in the price of the product. Excise taxes are also imposed because of wagering and also to trucks when they use major highways. In the video, various issues surrounding excise tax have been highlighted. One of these issues includes the principle of taxation that is fairness, and the other issue is tax incidence. A). Benefits Principle According to (Dubin, 234), this principle outlines that imposition of tax should depend on the benefits received. This policy argues that those who should pay high taxes are those who receive greatest benefits. This principle of taxation is applied to usage of public goods such as libraries, highways, national parks, colleges, forests, etc. The principle of fairness explains that tax imposed on individuals or corporate must be equal across the board, all should carry equal tax burden. In my own I do not believe that the excise tax imposed upon Whiskey by the US government is not justified. This deduction is as such because first the circumstance that the US was under was revolutionary war. Therefore, the benefits that the United States accrued from this......

...subscription. Michael Dubin was the founder and he used digital media to achieve a goal of getting more customers but also to get investments from big companies. The prices range from a $1 to $9 a month based on what type of razor blade customer chooses. The idea of selling razor via subscription came to the owner Michael Dubin because he have heard of many man complain of the prices of razors in stores. At the begging of launching his business, he spent months driving down San Diego to connect with bloggers to spread the word. However, it was difficult and he decided to make a video to tell the story of buying a razor via subscription. After launching his video on YouTube it has been seen almost 10 million times. In the first 48 hours of launching the video, he had 12,000 orders placed. After the launch of the video the business kept growing, Dubin struck a deal with many investors, which helped him, grow the company. Today the business is valued at $615 million, what started, as a video ad now is multi million-dollar company. With the use of digital media, Dubin was able to attract customer to purchase the subscription. He used several strategies that helped his video ad be successful such as making a funny video, launching it a the right time, using funneling marketing strategy, and creating a call to action within the video. His success was measured based on customers sharing the video and money earned. Goals of Individual The goal of Dubin was to bring in......

Leadership and Management

...between these two terms. As Dubin states in Metaphors of Leadership: An Overview, ( 1979), there are many theorists who see the terms leadership and management as being synonymous. The author notes the “…ease with which the concept of leadership is treated as a synonym for management and supervision” (Dubin,1979 p.225). He disagrees with this view and points out that, “My knowledge of organizational behavior has led me to the conclusion that effective organizations can be managed and supervised but not led” (Dubin,1979 p.225). This view would seem to imply that management and leadership are two different things. While the point that Dubin makes is valid, yet it must also be acknowledged that in today’s dynamic and complex environment, management in the more traditional sense of delegation, ordering and organization may not be sufficient to deal with the many elements of modern business and organizational demands. In other words, one perspective in this debate would see the conflation and reduction of the two terms as theoretically incorrect, and that in a more practical sense these two terms coexist and that leadership has become in many instances a necessary and intrinsic component of managing The View that Dubin suggests is one that coincides with the view of leadership as being at a fundamental level essentially different to management. He states that, “Leadership is a rare phenomenon, not a common one in organizations behavior”. (Dubin,1979, p.226). This......
