Case Study

Joan, a 57-year-old Boomer clinician/therapist, spoke with Megan, a 26-year-old Millennial client over the phone prior to the initial session. Megan says she is overwhelmed, extremely anxious, and unable to sleep.

Joan enters the initial session with a judgmental curiosity and predetermined agenda to find out why Megan still lives at home with her parents. Megan, who is not financially self-supporting, increasingly resents her parents when they offer advice, ask questions, or impose rules. Through early sessions with Megan, Joan comes to believe that, if Megan is so dissatisfied and argumentative with her parents, the solution is simple: Megan should move out and stand on her own two feet. But, Megan has missed two of the last four sessions.

Joan’s comments to her Gen X staff suggest that her client is irresponsible and lazy and needs to be more mature. Joan’s background? She was financially self-sufficient and living on her own since age 21.

Most of her staff do not agree with her assessment but dont respond immediately because she hasnt specifically asked. The Gen X staff do not want to see Megan hurt more by Joan’s approach while they value Joan’s vast experience in the field.

Present the results of their selected case study. The presentation and is expected to utilize visuals such as PowerPoint, Keynote, or Prezi.

Write a 4-page paper outlining a clear analysis of the issues involved in the Case Study and a suggested recommendation for resolving the management issue(s) involved. An excellent paper will be more detailed/targeted in its analysis and more specific/comprehensive in its response. A reference list of at least 8 sources is required. Be sure to follow APA guidelines for formatting and citation of sources as well as for the paper 

Is Globalisation in Crisis?

Hi,

I have attached a template and a document consisting of notes (pulled quotes). I will link you some readings and references to study for this paper. I want a bibliography of 8 – 15 sources. The English must be to a very high standard, that is sophisticated and above all coherent.

Check the reading list I set out (attached)

Accounting

Exercise 1:
ABC company has total assets for the year 2018 of 1,400,000 $ and total equity of 730,000 $.
1. Use the accounting equation to solve for the total equity?
2. Suppose that in 2019, total assets increased by 370,000$ and total equity increased by 220,000$, what would be the amount of total liabilities for the company?

Exercise 2:
Moon Market Company has a cash balance of 62,000$ at the beginning of the month of March. During that month, the following expenditures were made:
Inventory purchases: 36,000$;
Office supplies: 1,400$;
Repairs & maintenance: 1;850$;
Advertising expenses: 4,100$.
If the cash balance at the end of the month is 64,000$:
1. How much cash from sales did the company made?
2. Record all of these transactions on the journal entries listing which accounts to debit and which accounts to credit?

Exercise 3:
You company purchased a new machine that will help improving its productivity.
You are given the following information:
Gross purchasing price: 2,000,000 MAD;
10% discount;
Damages caused by negligence while transporting the machine: 37,000 MAD
Technician fees to install the machine: 15,000 MAD
Cables and electronic devices for the machine to be operational: 25,000 MAD;

1. Determine the cost of the asset?
2. Record the journal entry of this purchasing transaction?
3. Are we going to debit an asset account or expensing the cost? Explain why
Exercise 4:
Finetti Company purchased a new machine for 3,000,000 MAD and is expected to have a useful life of 8 years.
Its residual life at the end of its life is 500,000 MAD.
1. Using a straight-line depreciation method, compute the amount of yearly depreciation?
2. Record the journal entry of this transaction for year 1 and year 5?
3. Interpret your results in question 2?

Exercise 5:
Use the same information and data in exercise 4 to compute the yearly depreciation if the company is using the units of production method.
Suppose that the useful life in units is 120,000 and the company is expected to produce 20,000 units in the first year?

Millennial Cohort

Interview a member of the Millennial cohort working in the organizational leadership field and write a 3-page paper comparing and contrasting the persons experiences, values, and attitudes with those portrayed in the course texts and other literature. The primary focus of the interview and paper should be on the perspective of the person towards contemporary societal and workplace issues but may include reflection on past experiences common to the cohort. The papers will be assessed based on the depth of the interview/report and interaction with the literature. Students may choose to ask representatives of each generation the same questions, or they may choose to vary the interview questions.

Case Study

Ben Dover, a 29-year old Millennial, was promoted from an advertising salesman to head the entire advertising department at a growing sports management business. The CEO of Runaway Sports believes the best managers come from the best workers because they are close to client care issues. Ben was selected for promotion over three other people in the company and numerous applicants because of his excellent scores on their advertising goal charts, team work, and his course work toward his MBA. Delighted with his promotion, Ben decided to take charge immediately and called a meeting of the staff who reported to him.

At the gathering he asked people for input on what they would like to see changed. When one of her former coworkers spoke up and suggested that they hire another full-rime advertising salesperson, Ben rolled his eyes, frowned, and shook his head, saying “Not a chance. Too expensive. That’s a strikeout!” He looked around the room. “Do any of you have ideas that won’t break the bank?” Silence fell over the room like a heavy blanket. “I don’t understand. All you guys ever do is complain about being overworked. If you’re not part of the solution, then you’re part of the problem. I can’t be expected to fix everything by myself. If you don’t have any reasonable ideas, then game over for this meeting.”

Unbeknownst to Kevin, his boss, Rip Mashorts, a 54 year-old late Boomer, happened to be near the open door and heard everything. Rip waited for the staff to disperse and invited Ben to come to his office. “Ben, I think you have a lot of potential. Right now, you would benefit from a leadership coach. We only offer this type of mentoring to people we believe will become good leaders in our organization.”

Ben was floored. He just got the job and already he was being told he had to be retrained. It felt like a complete fumble. On the other hand, Rip said this was an investment in Ben’s future with the company. He took a deep breath and contemplated what he wanted to do.

What is going on with Ben?
How does this development inform Bens ideas on leadership?
Whats his next move?
