Phase 4 Individual Project, Ethics in the Business Environment
Morals and Values Good morals and values are things that we should have in regards to not only our personal life and the way we act and treat people, but also in regards to our business life and how we treat both coworkers and customers. Values are the actual beliefs that we live by in our lives such as do unto others as you would have done unto you. Morals are the values that we believe in that can usually be attributed to an external place of learning them such as one’s religion or the society they live in. It is our morals that help us to determine the difference between right from wrong and choose to do the right thing (Career Education Corporation, 2010).
Code of Conduct Plan
Having a code of conduct plan in place for any business is crucial to its survival. If there is not a plan in place, some employees may not know how to act in certain situations and they may do something that could really hurt the business. Proper behavior cannot be expected unless leaders tell the population what they expect and how proper behavior is supposed to look (Editorial Board, 2012).
Doing Business Abroad
One thing to think about when doing business overseas is the U.S. Department of State. The U.S. Department of State is instrumental in issuing Apostilles and Certificates of Authentication. Depending on the country where the document is going to be issued is what determines which document will be needed. Some countries are not a part of the Hague Apostille Convention, for those countries, you would need an authentication certificate. If the country is a part of the Hague Apostille Convention, then Apostille Certificates are issued. The types of documents that require…...

...the business. The ability to educate one another requires modesty, and comprehension that individuals have more power when they aide each other’s growth. Both of these are traits of a strong team (Martin, 2013). 2. Making Decisions: Also within a strong team, individuals are aware of what role they play as well as the chain of command in their business; this makes for easy decision making. Each member of the team knows who has the power to make a decision, and this individual’s choices are accepted. Each member has the chance to give his/her opinion, and the leader will consider them (Martin, 2013). 3. Clear Expectations: When each team member is aware of what is expected of them, they tend to be more efficient and feel better about their occupations. Team members tend to trust each other, depend on each other, and work independently all at the same time. When a team member does not know what is expected of them, they get frustrated and begin to feel hostile, as well as feeling that other teammates ask too much, or other people are doing too little (Martin, 2013). 4. Strong Communications: Strong teams have solid communication networks. As individuals start to work from different places, this network becomes more necessary. Strong teams are aware of how to get in touch with each other, and it is necessary to keep each other aware of what is going on at all times. Each individual knows which data is most important for each person as well as who is responsible for......

...Phase 5 Individual Project Examining the basic tenets of the following religious traditions: Judaism, Christian and Islam XXXXXXXXXXXXXX HUMN250-1302B-10 Professor XXXXXXXXXX June 19, 2013 Throughout the history of man there has been change and development. As man developed he began to start small tribes, then the tribes begin to organize (Silver, 1974). During this time forms of language developed, and beliefs, which turned into customs. These customs and beliefs started the belief in a higher being, or God. This is what is called religion today. Religion has had many different faces, and the belief structure has had just as many variations. Some of these religions have merged to create new ones, while other just simply faded away (Walter, 2003). Today there are 19 major world religions which are subdivided into a total of 270 large religious groups,(Robison, 2011), and many smaller ones than have no intentions on merging with the larger groups. This report will look at three of these religions, Judaism, Christian and Islam describing the similarities and recurring themes of these major religious traditions. Creation stories (cosmogony) The common thread between the three religions is from Abraham. Abraham is the father of the Jewish nation. He is also fathered an illegitimate son, Ishmael. Mohammed is an Ishmaelite. Christians are also spiritual sons of Abraham because their religion originated in Judaism (Armstrong, 1993). They all rely on the......

Phase 1 Individual Project

...Phase 1 Individual Project International Business Communications Professor Randi Plante Colorado Technical University Online Octavia Briggs 16 April 2014 Opening a fast food restaurant anywhere can be challenging but going to another country to open a burger joint will take a lot of research and training of the right people. Language barrios will need to be gapped and food studies put into place. I am going to be writing about opening a fast food hamburger restaurant in China, Israel, United Arab Emirates and Mexico. Every country has differing foods and tastes thus it will be beneficial to do a lot of studying before anything else. Israeli food is very flavorful and all ingredients are at its best. This is true whether it be the foods from the streets or a fast food restaurant. Israeli people's sense of taste differs greatly from those in the United States; they are "Toffee Nosed" when it involves food. You would have to have a very tasty burger to make it in Israel and probably have to cook it on a charcoal grill rather the electric or gas before they will eat it. "The kosher social seal is awarded to eateries that pledge to treat those preparing and serving the food in an ethical way. This means paying overtime, providing health insurance, and ensuring the equal treatment of minorities – the list goes on." (Harman, D. 2008) In china, the elders are fed first; always wait until the host has finished their offer of words of greeting to start eating...

...LITR201-1402B-04: Literature: A Reflection of Life- PHASE 4 Name: Institution: LITR201-1402B-04: Literature: A Reflection of Life- PHASE 4 PART A Drama is also referred to as a play because it tells a story and is also performed on stage. In addition, drama is similar to plays in that it has a theme, a plot and is often narrated by a persona (Ghent, 2012, 629). Also, drama is also known as a play in that it evokes emotions and has a tone just like a play. During my high school days, the school invited a group of people who performed a play on HIV/AIDs. This was my initial time to timepiece a live stage performance. The characters perfectly represented their roles in that the audience felt as if the characters were real. For example, those characters representing HIV patients appeared weak and sad; the sounds were full of sympathy as they spoke. Every scene had its own sounds that paralleled the theme and purpose of the act (Meyer, 2011, p111). There were cries, mourns and even sounds of desperation. Throughout the drama, the audience was full of sad mood. HIV/AIDs infection was presented as something that people should be afraid of. The audience was also filled with pity and sympathy for the infected characters. Since it was my first encounter to see a live stage drama, the theme, scenes and characters were a great impact to my life and my understanding of what entails a drama. For a elongated time I had wished to be involved in a dramatic act until one day, my......

The excerpts: Denver Goes Alfresco, Firewire Surfboards Lights Up with CAD, Colgate-Palmolive keeps managers smiling with executive dashboards, will be analyzed and discussed as listed. In the first excerpt, Denver Goes Alfresco we go over a major growing point in Denver’s economy, city-state government, public relations and community involvement. These major changes, once started, took 15 month period of 6-12 week cycles. Before every implementing this project The city-government and its various agencies were in a blinded state of turmoil. They were have so many issues with technological communication that the only option was change! So change they made by implementing a single centralized IT group whose sole purpose was to bring the city-government out of the ashes. This of course meant saying farewell to the existing 14 management systems, saving costs in doing so anyway. The new system, the enterprise content management (ECM) system had to fill 3 major roles records, security, and finally communication. The ECM chosen blew its competitor away with a million dollar a year in potential savings. That and its ability to accommodate the......

Many believe that globalization has not been favorable because there’s not enough of it going on. Most corporations fear the failures that come with it. I would simply say if enough research and resources have not been gathered accordingly, then the chances or ratio for failing is highly likely. The hope is, if unnecessary governmental parameters are removed, then it would be much easier for corporation to act accordingly. This will bring increase prosperity for many corporations, but international trade rules are established for many reasons. At most is simply for protection of its economy and assets. The rationale for globalizing our furniture company is quite simple. We simply need to expand and seek opportunities in growth and revenue for the corporation. By doing this we provide long term growth for the corporation. We will extend employment opportunities in much larger footprint.

...Phase 2 Individual Project ENTR615-1403A-01 Bolivar Coba Professor Theresa Pavone July 25, 2014 The video presentation by Simon Sinek on “How great leaders inspire action” is a very informative lecture that best describes how consumers are attracted to a product. Simon states that consumers make a decision on products based on why a manufacture or company develops their idea versus on the end result (Sinek, 2009). Based on the lecture of Simon the company that I am thinking of developing will be based on the passion of the customer service industry that I believe in. Upon researching on businesses that utilize ideas that my company will use, I found that we have three ideas which are: Create the Context, define and Train to a Standard; a Common Language for Your Organization, Design Customer Service Training Focused on Attitudes and Behaviors (Johnson, 1998). The type of business that I am planning on launching is in the customer service industry. The reason I have decided to enter this venture is because many companies that would like develop a strong customer service based employees, would have to obtain the proper training in order to meet set goals. The main reason why I decided to choose this venture is because I have over ten years of customer service. I have worked in the banking industry.

Assume the company has a P/B (payback) policy of not accepting projects with life of over 3 years. This will be a perfect project to accept due to life span stay between 2 to 3 years. This will be within company’s policy. If the project required additional investment in land and building, how would this affect your decision? Explain Depending on how much additional investment needed and what will be the payback period. Another cash flow statement will be needed for further reviewing to decide whether additional funding will be a good investment. . A manufacturing company is thinking of launching a new product. The company expects to sell $950,000 of the new product in the first year and $1,500,000 each year thereafter. Direct costs including labor and materials will be 45% of sales. Indirect incremental costs are estimated at $95,000 a year. The project requires a new plant that will cost a total of $1,500,000, which will be a depreciated straight line over the next 5 years. The new line will also require an additional net investment in inventory and receivables in the amount of $200,000.

...90=$2.50. The breakeven point by definition is the sales level at which a company neither earns a profit nor incurs a loss. To find the brat even point all a business manager needs to do is divide the contribution margin per unit into fived costs. You must find the fixed cost first. To find the fixed cost you subtract the total variable cost per unit from the sales price per unit. The break even formula for this one is $1,750/$2.50=$700. 20,000 units times $12 per unit equals $24,000. To find the operating cost for 20000 haircuts all you would have to do is multiply by the price per unit. With the company only performing haircuts the unit price is still $12. If Andre revises the compensation method and gives $6 for each haircut and $4 per hour the new contribution margin per haircut would be $2.00. The breakeven point for the new revised compensation would be $870. For the contribution you would do $12-$10=$2. For the breakeven point you would do $1,750/$2=$875. If all the stylist where to perform 20000 haircuts in a year a long side their hourly rate per year the total expense for all five stylist Andre would have to pay is $120,000. The total for the hourly rate plus the compensation a year is $40,000+$120,000=$160,000. The best method for Andre to apply for his business is to use the flat hourly rate of $9.90.
