Read through posts

Read through the below post and provide any on of the following: 

.Ask a probing question, substantiated with additional background information, evidence or research.  

· Share an insight from having read your colleagues’ postings, synthesizing the information to provide new perspectives.  

· Offer and support an alternative perspective using readings from the classroom or from your own research.  

· Validate an idea with your own experience and additional research. 

. Posting should be at least 250 words and require some information from the text, academically reviewed paper, some significant commentary that requires knowledge of the subject matter, a web link to an article or other source.  

This is a topic I do not think I need to refer to any of the materials online. It is something about which we can speak through all by ourselves. Indeed, decision making does involve using your brain and understanding the circumstances, but it also involves trusting your intuition. There have been so many examples in the past that have proved that intuition is something which is unquestionable and is not within the dimensions of the body. There is mind and soul that work together and somewhere they meet at a junction point where there is a sudden gut feeling or thought that allows the person to decide and follow a certain path.

The examples I would cite would be my own personal one first. There have been many instances where I was stuck in making a decision, but always my feelings were inclined towards in a particular direction. That was the time when I decided to move to the USA, or waited patiently for a good job, that just settling down for nothing. There were decisions in my personal life where I was following my gut and not allowing any superficial thoughts to come in and play with it. 

There are companies like Apple, which is a trillion dollar by itself, that trace back to intuition. Steve Jobs had declared way back in 2007 that the company would touch a trillion dollar mark. He had the intuition at the launch of the first iPhone that this wil happen, and his decisions were made accordingly. Same goes for companies like Facebook and Tesla for having room innovation and decision making because Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk followed their intuitions.

In your summation, provide your thoughts about establishing members of a multidisciplinary task force to improve the health and welfare of society for self-betterment, improve lives, and help individuals see a better future.

. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.

Management of Working Capital

Week 3 – Assignment       

Management of Working Capital Case Study: “George’s Trains”

It appears that George is running a profitable business. George is aware you are in an MBA Managerial Finance class and comes to you for advice on his working capital practices. More specifically George asks you to do the following:

  • Describe his working capital practices, including his methods of capital budgeting analysis techniques.
  • Analyze the potential pitfalls in his capital budgeting practices that George should be aware of.
  • Develop a simple statement of cash flows for George’s Trains using any information gleaned from the video. What areas of improvement do you recommend? Provide at least three references from the Ashford University Library or other scholarly sources to support your recommendations.

In a three- to five-page paper (excluding the title and reference pages), respond to George’s request for advice in detail. The paper should be properly formatted in alignment with APA 6th edition formatting.

It appears that George is running a profitable business. George is aware you are in an MBA Managerial Finance class and comes to you for advice on his working capital practices. More specifically George asks you to do the following:

·         Describe his working capital practices, including his methods of capital budgeting analysis techniques.

·         Analyze the potential pitfalls in his capital budgeting practices that George should be aware of.

·         Develop a simple statement of cash flows for George’s Trains using any information gleaned from the video. What areas of improvement do you recommend? Provide at least three references from the Ashford University Library or other scholarly sources to support your recommendations.

In a three- to five-page paper (excluding the title and reference pages), respond to George’s request for advice in detail. The paper should be properly formatted in alignment with APA 6th edition formatting.

Watch the video. It is a narrative about George’s Trains. You will not get a lot of numbers, but more generalities. It will be up to YOU to fill in the blanks. Any numbers are fine – it is how you present the examples that will be what matters.

The key here is, YOU as a managerial consultant are coming in to help out George. George has got a good thing going, but there are some areas where George needs improvement. So there are three parts:

Part 1 – Educate George about working capital, and how his store practices working capital management. You need to provide sufficient background as to how working capital works.

Part 2- Once you have schooled George a little, what kinds of problems could he experience? Does George run into the risk of bankruptcy?

Part 3 – Now you get to practice assembling a statement of cash flow. There are no right or wrong answers here since you are making this stuff up. But you want to show George how all these pieces work together to manage working capital.

The number one issue I typically see is that there was no attempt to assemble a statement of Cash Flows. I do not give credit for portions of the assignment that were not attempted. Please do not contact me if you got a failing grade but did not attempt to assemble a statement of cash flows.

Another issue I see is that there is no linkage to the week’s readings from the text. You need to support your observations.
