...Manage Finances Within A Budget Submitted by: Nico Antonio A. Serafin Submitted to: Ma’am Lorejen Salise Based on the variance/diversion report of the TAFE Island Holiday Resort, me and my business partner have interpreted the figures listed in the report and have offered remedies to improve their budget performance. This is their income report: Income Actual Budget Variance TAFE Restaurant $233,278 $205,000 $ 28,278 TAFE Bar $ 36,500 $ 51,300 $ (14,800) Island Coffee Shop $ 14,000 $ 18,500 $ (4,500) Room Service $ 1,840 $ 4,450 $ (2,610) Total Income $285,618 $279,250 $ 6,368 Based on this report, we can tell that a certain area of the resort has exceeded the budget therefore having a variance of $28,278. Because of this the resort should be more considerable with their budgeting judgment. They should plan, organize their budget and even motivate their staff in making decisions well. They can also start making another budget plan in this section of the resort. They can use a zero budget system to clearly detect inflated budgets in the beginning of the financial year. The resort should control their budget by checking income and expenditure at regular intervals and identifying and reporting the deviations. As for the other sections of their resort, there is no need for any change. It is because the incomes and the variances did not exceed their targeted budget. Therefore, they can save more if they......

Manage Risk

...MANAGE RISK 1. What is the purpose of the standard known as AS/NZS 4360: 2004 Risk? This Standard provides a generic guide for managing risk. This Standard may be applied to a very wide range of activities, decisions or operations of any public, private or community enterprise, group or individual. While the Standard has very broad applicability, risk management processes are commonly applied by organizations or groups and so, for convenience, the term ‘organization’ has been used throughout this Standard. This Standard specifies the elements of the risk management process, but it is not the purpose of this Standard to enforce uniformity of risk management systems. It is generic and independent of any specific industry or economic sector. The design and implementation of the risk management system will be influenced by the varying needs of an organization, its particular objectives, its products and services, and the processes and specific practices employed. This Standard should be applied at all stages in the life of an activity, function, project, product or asset. The maximum benefit is usually obtained by applying the risk management process from the beginning. Often a number of discrete studies are carried out at different times, and from strategic and operational perspectives. 2. Duty of care:  is a legal obligation which is imposed on an individual requiring that they adhere to a standard  of reasonable care while performing any acts that could foreseeably...

...WHAT BUSINESS IS THIS OF OURS? The following case describes a problem at quality engineering, a medium-sized company located in Denver, Colorado. The case is based on a real situation at quality, although the name of the supplier in question has been changed. You will use this case to think about the human communication process and to begin to understand the concept of organizational communication. John and Mary were the only two buyers in the purchasing department of quality engineering. Both had been with the company for several years and were experienced in handling purchases for the manufacturing, research, finance, and marketing areas of quality. Mary typically handled purchases for the manufacturing and research areas, and john was the principal buyer for the rest of the organization. At times their individual workloads required that they cross departments and help each other. Their boss, Mike Anderson, the accountant for quality, believed they were the best purchasing team with whom he had ever worked. He was proud of their efforts and willingness to cooperate with each other. He frequently commented to quality management that John and Mary made money for the company by getting the best possible prices for goods and services. Mike was surprised and concerned to overhear John and Mary in a heated discussion. John: I can’t believe you are still using Anderson printing as one of our suppliers. I told you last month that their last two orders for my groups were...
