In order for an organization to be successful it is essential that they follow some of these trends so that their company appeals to people. This proves to be true for the event planning and convention industries. Two articles that pinpoint a couple different trends are “Nifty gadgets taking special events to a new level” and “ The article “Nifty gadgets taking special events to a new level” is a great example of trends within the planning and convention industries. In the years 2001-2004 these industries saw a huge decline in business. The reason for this was the failing economy. Companies and organizations could no longer fit events and gatherings into the budget. In 2005 event planning companies such as Dolce parties finally started to see an incline in corporate parties and events. However, these parties and events were at a much smaller scale. It was only the important people that were being invited to these gatherings because the budgets were still not back to where they were. Since the comeback of events was at a slow pace, event planners and convention industries decided to introduce some new gadgets to attract clientele. According to Stableford ( 2005)“Beyond the typical post-event surveys and evaluation of how many sales leads actually translate into......

The ready to eat cereals first appeared in the late 1800’s when a group of vegetarians wanted to expand their food options and decided to create the wheat and corn flakes. It wasn´t until 1906 that Kellogg’s Co. entered the market and has stayed latent through many generations until these days. It is interesting that it survived two world wars and the depression of the United States in the 1930’s. Being this long in the market also means that they have known how to evolve in this world with constant changes, adapting to the behavioral changes in people and their likes remaining competitive and appealing. It is more of a mature company rather than growing company and has many brand-loyal customers.

Global Trend Analysis

...March 30, 2014 Introduction According to Aspray, Mayadas, & Vardi (2006) globalization has resulted in billions of people joining the free-market world, and dozens of countries joining the World Trade Organization. This trend has produced a world where not only goods are globally tradable, but so is labor, which can be sent over a wire rather than physically relocated. Vales (2007) stated that the future may be hard to predict, but may not be hard to prepare for. Insurers are in close encounter with the tough new business, investment and regulatory environments that are emerging from the financial crisis. The article continued to state that the insurance industry however, also faces far broader challenges. Demographic shifts, the rise in power of the emerging markets and changing customer behavior will all help shape the sector’s longer term future. Insurers who can anticipate and plan for change can create their own future. Others who are “fast followers” will need to be agile enough to recognize the leaders and adopt similar strategies. White, (2009) wrote that many factors are contributing to the increasing diversity in the workplace, factors such as the rising numbers of immigrants, mergers or joint ventures with companies in other countries, the rising use of temps and contract workers, and the increasing globalization of business are a few of the forces making the...

Sector Trend Analysis

...Manufacturing Sector Trend Analysis My assignment was to analyze the current state of the manufacturing sector in the United States, paying particular attention to trends in productivity, competitiveness, and employment. What I learned was a bit surprising and alarming, though, only if said trends continue. With regard to productivity, in an article released by the Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation, productivity in the manufacturing sector declined by 0.1% in Q3 2013, as hours worked increased by 1.2%. That said, productivity in durable goods increased 1.1% and decreased 1% in nondurable goods. It was the area of competitiveness that was most interesting to me. According to a 2013 report released by Deloitte, evaluating global manufacturing competitiveness, the United States did not hold the top position. As was described in that article, of the top ten countries, five are developed nations whereas five are developing nations and yet, in five years, three developing nations will likely occupy position #2 and #3 respectively. The article points to “talent-driven innovation” as the key component to a nations competitiveness. In fact, the Deloitte article goes on to state: “Talent-driven innovation is deemed the most critical driver of a nation’s competitiveness. Catapulting into the second most important driver position is the economic, trade, financial, and tax system of a nation.” (Deloitte 2013) Current competitiveness |   |......

Financial Ratio Quarterly Trend Analysis

...FIN 6406 A Financial Ratio Quarterly Trend Analysis of: The Boeing Company BA Listed on New York Stock Exchange Prepared for: Dr. Deanne Butchey Corporate MBA Program Florida International University By: Justin Papcun Computations Financial Trend Comparison Liquidity: The Boeing Company financial data shows that the company is in place to settle up its obligations in the short term business strategy. As it appears right now, 1.20 is the current ratio and the company’s assets offset its liabilities by 1:2. The quick ratio of 0.37 is lower than the current ratio due to the variance from competition forming from the industry average. The current ratio posted a value of 1 or above consistently, but the same cannot be said for the quick ratio which posted below the value one for Q1-Q4. This decline comes from a recession, a decrease in airline traffic, and the instability of fuel cost. Despite this the current ratio was able to increase value while the quick ratio decreased while still posting a positive number. This was due to an inventory and production decrease. In current liabilities to inventory sector, the numbers did not suffer. In Q1-Q4 Boeing did not post a value below 1, varying between 1.13-1.21. The cash ratio saw numbers between 0.13 and 0.14 for Q1-Q3, and increasing to a 0.21 for Q4.

Trend Analysis and Common Size Financial Statements

...TREND ANALYSIS AND COMMON SIZE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS Financial statements provide information in assessing the financial health of a company. Basically, these include the Balance Sheet, Income statement, and the Statement of Cash Flows. While a one-year information is important in providing a picture of the company’s current financial condition, several years of financial information could provide a more adequate information on the company’s track record, through a trend analysis. TREND ANALYSIS A trend analysis is important because it would tell whether the company’s financial performance has improved or deteriorated. Unlike a one-year information, making use of several years of financial information and determining the trend would: 1. provide a basis of comparing periodic performances, 2. determine the direction that the company is leading to, and 3. Provide a more adequate basis of determining company’s strengths and weaknesses. COMMON SIZE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS A common size balance sheet expresses each item on the balance sheet as a percentage of total assets. On the other hand, a common size income statement expresses each income statement category as a percentage of net sales (Fraser, 2001). Expressing the items in terms of percentage to total assets (e.g. accounts receivable) would facilitate an analysis of the composition of assets within major categories. Too large percentage of inventories would be alarming because it would indicate that a...

A Financial Ratio Quarterly Trend Analysis of: Dell, Inc.

...Financial Trend Comparison For each of the five ratio categories: Liquidity, Asset Utilization, Profitability, Debt Utilization, and Market Values, write a paragraph regarding the trend and implications about the future financial health of the company. Liquidity: The company has very strong ratios helping the company to do well. Dell’s current ratio and quick ratio are at 1.47 and 1.40 respectably, this similarity between one and the other is a reflection of their very low inventory compared to the amount of sales that the company has, also influencing the net working capital ratio of only 0.23. At first sight the current liabilities to inventory ratio of 15 might seem a bit high, although the denominator of the current liability to inventory ratio is inventory and it is really low. It’s really hard to compare the company to the industry average because there is no other company that handles its inventory like Dell does. The company’s operation ratio expense is 12.64, way below compare to their industry do to their very low inventory. Assets Utilization: Asset utilization is vital to the success of an organization, the way assets are used within the organization is their biggest and strongest strategy making Dell a leader in its industry. A reflection of this strategy is their impressive inventory turnover ratio of 45.45. Unlike the industry average low numbers on the rest of the asset utilization ratios such as fixed assets turnover, total assets ratio......
