It is a process or series of continuing and related activities. 2. It involves and concentrates on reaching organizational goals. 3. It reaches these goals by working with and through people and other organizational resources. Management in all business and organizational activities is the act of coordinating the efforts of people to accomplish desired goals and objectives using available resources efficiently and effectively. Management comprises planning, organizing, staffing, leading or directing, and controlling an organization (a group of one or more people or entities) or effort for the purpose of accomplishing a goal. Resourcing encompasses the deployment and manipulation of human resources, financial resources, technological resources, and natural resources.

This internship program helped me to learn about the practical scenario of a Telecommunication Company. RobiAxiata Limited is a dynamic and leading countrywide GSM communication solution provider. It is a joint venture company between Axiata Group Berhad, Malaysia and NTT DOCOMO INC, Japan. RobiAxiata Limited, formerly known as Telecom Malaysia International (Bangladesh), commenced its operation in 1997 under the brand name Aktel among the pioneer GSM mobile telecommunications service providers in Bangladesh. Later, on 28th March 2010 the company started its new journey with the brand name Robi. This report has been presented based on my observation and experience gathered from the company.

Case of the Proposed Jiminy Peak Wind Turbine

...1. Two commonly used methods of financial analysis are payback and present value. Payback determines the length of time for an investment to return its original cost (1). Using the assumptions stated below the payback of the Jiminy Nick wind turbine with a cost of about $3.3 million would return the investment in about four years time. Net present value summarizes the initial cost of an investment, the estimated annual cash flows, and expected salvage value, taking into account the time value of money (1). A NPV calculation for the scenario SED is reviewing equals $7,697,286 minus the investment costs of $3,318,000 totaling $4,379,286. The capital budgeting analysis reflects the assumptions stated in the case scenario that the initial investment cost and installation of the wind turbine is $3,900,000 and there is a grant available from the Renewable Energy Trust Fund in the amount of $582,000. A bank loan of $3,300,000 at 7.3% will be obtained leaving an $18,000 difference. The turbine will follow MACRS double-declining balance depreciation schedule for a period of five years including half-year depreciation in the first and last recovery years. Jiminy Peak has an income tax rate of 40%. The company has sufficient taxable income to benefit from any deductions and credits available, and the after-tax weighted average cost of capital of 6%. The turbine’s useful life is 25 years with no terminal disposal value. There will be $100,000 net cash inflow from extended operations......

Jiminy Peak Wind Turbine

...achieve maximum proficiency, the CEO implemented a circular structure to create a non hierarchal organization so information could flow freely between the organization and its environment. However employees could not relate to the circular structure. The circular structure confused current and new employees because it lacked clarity as to who made decisions; employees didn’t know how they were being evaluated. It did not improved customer service or the view employees had of the customer. The Horizontal structure was nonresponsive with regards to employees and it was inadequate. What was needed was the ability to control all departments of the company. Innovative structures would not work. Apex needed to return to traditional business management of the Hierarchical Functional Structure. Hierarchy protects subordinates by clearly outlining chains of command. What a superior can and cannot do, and where his authority has power is delineated in hierarchical structures. This allows the subordinate some level of power to stop interference by an unauthorized superior. An advantage for subordinates within the hierarchical structure is knowing clearly who their boss is. This relieves any conflict they may be faced with when another superior attempts to direct them without authority. A good example of a hierarchical organizational structure is the United States government. At the top of the pyramid is the Constitution; this is the governing concept (idea, goal) on which......

... Management report on supply chain management and quality management ---based on a case of Mattel recall scandal 1. Introduction Experiencing a steady growth, global toy industry has attracted many research in studying this field, in which one of the largest toy manufacturers Mattel Inc. suffered from a recall scandal in 2007. This essay directs at exploring reasons that lead to Mattel’s operation failure in this scandal regarding two key frameworks in global operation management, namely, supply chain management and quality management. Providing potential recommendations to prevent or react to supply chain failure as well. 1.1. U.S. toy industry According to Statista (2016), the U.S. toy industry amounted to $43.1 billion in 2015. It was projected to reach $45.02 billion by 2016. By means of global supply chains, U.S. enormous demand for toys is satisfied. For example, most toys sold in the U.S. are designed in the U.S., but approximately eighty percent of those sold in the U.S. are manufactured in China (Boyle, 2015). The main characteristics of toy industry are ‘volatility’ and ‘seasonality’ (Wong & Johansen, 2005). Roughly seventy percent of toy sales occur in the final three months of the year, in which families conduct bulk purchase as gifts to children for Christmas. Therefore, during early months of a year when demand for toys are considerably lower, toy manufacturers face problems with much of the unutilized capacity. They also need to......
