Ethical Issue: Before even beginning the project, Mr. Allison couldn’t keep his commitment in regards to meeting the temperature requirement. Mr. Allison was dishonest and to make matters worse he failed to voice his concerns. It was apparent that Gary was not truly on board with the project plans from the beginning and lack confidence to get the job done. Everyone on the team also did not communicate these issues with the client or stakeholders of the organization. Legal and Contractual Issues: SEC is guilty of legal and contractual issues in regards to the Orion Shield Project.
Possibly the most important showdown was the debt-ceiling fight of August 2011. It “threatened the country's ability to meet its financial obligations and resulted in an unprecedented downgrade in the U.S. credit rating by Standard and Poor's. The subsequent failure of the bipartisan super-committee to reach a deal on $1.2 trillion in targeted budget savings over ten years unleashed automatic spending cuts for both defense and non-defense spending”
5. The confidentiality agreement did limit the scope of the audit performed on ZZZZ Best. It is the job of the auditor to obtain sufficient and appropriate evidence. When Ernst & Whinney were not allowed to follow-up with anyone involved in the restoration process that limited their ability to gather evidence. The company should have been able to follow up with all venders and customers to attest to the validity of the financial statements and they were not able to do this and not able to gather the “appropriate and sufficient evidence” needed.
Micromanagement like this puts employees in a threatened state and unable to perform their best. Additionally, while the reward system may have appeared functional, it ultimately was very poorly designed. Employees felt incentivized to simply “impress” their superiors, which did not necessarily correlate with actual performance. Further, the assessment cloaked evaluations as a part of career development counseling, creating a conflict of interest for the auditor collecting performance information from the employees. Finally, the evaluation system failed to require managers to provide feedback to their reports, inhibiting an environment of learning or growth.

My assessment of the relationship between the union and the company has been very strained over the past couple of years. The company has a complete new front office that has no understanding of the past practices, culture, or the working environment because of that they have begun to repeat some of the past mistakes of other managers. In 2004, there was a major layoff and retirement phase with almost no transference of information and no one left to mentor those new employees. The new management team was truly in a hurry to fail and did just that costing the company hundreds of thousands of dollars in the process in failed policies and lost arbitrations. Currently, the relationship is full of distrust and misunderstands that may take years to
Provide a brief description of the status of the company that led to its determination that a change was necessary. After six straights years of ten percent or more growth, in 2005, Avon Products success story turned ugly. Given the tripling of earnings under CEO Andrea Jung, the company suddenly began losing sales across the globe. Avon, an extremely successful company, found itself challenged by flattening revenues and declining operating profits. There were many situations that contributed to the Avon’s down swing, there was just the one underlying issue of Avon growth that was faster than portions of its infrastructure and talent could support.
The core issue here are that the person with the historical data to consult on the estimate was not consulted about the time needed for the amount of expertise required. Thus, the proper amount of time was not built into the estimate, and so the project has a very good chance of failure because of the lack of understanding by the proposal department in setting up
