Cash Management Article Review

...Cash Management Article Review October 2, 2012 Section 1: Original Work Statement I, xxxxxxxx, verify that this article review is solely my own work and creation and it has been prepared solely for credit in this class. Section 2: Article Citation Serena, N. and Tuna, C. (August 31, 2009). Big Firms are Quick to Collect, Slow to Pay. Wall Street Journal (page 1). Section 3: Main Issue of Article This article was very important and was exposed to many readers because it made the front page of the Wall Street Journal in 2009. The authors wanted to inform their readers of a cash management development that a number of credit professionals had recognized a long time ago but wanted to expose the issue to more financial professionals and the multitudes that read the Wall Street Journal. Big companies have sped up efforts in collecting money and at the same time have slowed down their payments to suppliers, vendors and money owed back to customers. Big firms are quick to collect and they are slow to pay (Serena). This concept must be understood as these big companies are fine tuning and sneakily finding ways to squeeze as much cash flow as possible out of operations and small businesses in which they use. An important statistic that came out of the article exposes the fact that companies with annual revenue in excess of more than $5 billion are collecting bills on the average of 41 days in 2009 down from 42 days in 2008. The same companies are......

...Literature Review: Strategic Management BUSI 600 Business Research Methods Thomas Sheppard Liberty University October12, 2012 Abstract In order to have a successful study, a review of the literature will be undertaken. Then the methods and standards that were used will be addressed, and any questions that are being considered for further research into the area of strategic management will be discussed. From that point, it is vital that conclusions be drawn and recommendations be offered to wrap up the study. Without these components, it is often not clear whether a researcher has a thorough understanding of what the study was designed to do, and it is also not clear if said researcher is certain as to what else should be done in the area and should be questioned when it comes to that particular issue. In short, studies without these components lack completeness and that can make it difficult for anyone in the future to use the study as a jumping off point for similar studies or studies into related issues. The concept of strategic management is one that is highly important to organizations around the world (David, 2009). It involves taking a look at the top management of a company and the resources that management team is using on behalf of the company's owners and in order to show a specific level of performance.

Financial Management Review

...manufacturing are holding the economy back from reaching its full potential. America used to grow at more than 3% a year, on average. Since the recession, it's been struggling to grow much above 2%. Some have taken to saying the U.S. is stuck in a "Twilight Zone" between boom and bust. While manufacturing is stalling, it's unlikely to be the factor that sways the Federal Reserve on whether or not the U.S. economy is healthy enough for the central bank to raise interest rates in December. All eyes now turn to Friday's report on how many jobs the economy added in October as the big clue to how the U.S. is holding up. Related: America's economy is in the Twilight Zone Related: Is it up or down? America is a tale of 2 economies Magazine review In the topic they talk about the US manufacturing and how it has declined since the 40 and how it has more employees overall but the industry its self is still at a recession level. It said in the 50”S that manufacturing was 27% of the total economy and now it is only 12% it has decreased to half of what it used to be. I believe that we are switching to more of a business economy of selling goods and services that other countries are making and maybe even transportation of goods because not many of our products don’t come from china, and even things that are made in the US use Chinese or foreign parts to make US goods. I do think they are right it is hurting our economy from reaching its full potential because if we were to make......

Management Concepts Literature Review

...Griffiths University | Literature Review and Report | IBA111 Management Concepts | | | Geoffrey Lee (S2832807) | 05-Feb-12 | Lecturer: Alistair Hodgson According to Schermerhorn (2011, p. 364), Google Australia is one of the best places to work in Australia matching the performance of its US parent company. It uses a well-balanced strategy of extrinsic and intrinsic rewards and these have kept its employees highly motivated and continue to exert their best efforts for the company. Extrinsic rewards at Google Australia include unlimited sick leave, generous health insurance, flexible working hours, and reimbursement of up to $6000 per year for educational expenses. In addition, staff can also receive small bonus rewards on a day-to-day basis. Intrinsic rewards mostly depend on the individual, but such things as getting to work with creators of Google products such as Google Earth, Gmail, and Google News can bring a sense of satisfaction to the job. Google’s intention to create a sense of fun at work and to create a culture of information sharing and collaboration can be identified by its office environment such as an informal dress code, abundant leisure activities and free food at the staff cafeterias. With these small rewards, Google employees feel a sense of belonging to the company and feel that they are creating and contributing to something bigger than themselves.
