Since this system was organized by an internal authority, it did not work too well. People in controls were on the same level so alliances were formed. They were not honest with reviews and the average workers were fearful to report and wrong doing to the superiors in fear of angering the higher ups. This dishonesty started the downward spiral of the unstable culture. 2) Discuss whether Enron’s officers acted within the scope of the authority.
Under this situation, the hard working did not earn any appraise for him, instead of reward, the unexpected discontinue made him feel not being fully respect. Therefore, he felt “lose face” and being distrust. However, on the other side, Charles Tang perceived different message through the lack of communication. In Charles mind, Yong Li, as a talent manager, disobeyed the corporate norms and culture. In reality, stereotypes are sufficiently subjective that emotions can negatively distort the meaning of an opponent’s actions, thereby gradually generating perceptions of conflicts (Sandra, 2009).
Since they didn’t have enough people working they weren’t able to sustain production so people didn’t come in to trade which left Puerto Rico out of trade. However this was only seen as a federal issue, many islanders didn’t see it that way mostly because they had illegal trade going on their trade would consist of timber, cattle, leather, tobacco, and crops. The only problem with illegal trade was that they had to get gifts for the government officials so that can continue on doing their trades with the foreigners. This became problematic because the profits they were making would have to be spent in the
Further, Schindler’s Indian business faced cost pressures due to sharply increased import tariffs that were not calculated for and a rise in transfer prices from the goods imported from European subsidiary. Lastly, the Indian subsidiary of Schindler did not get engineering support, design specifications and parts lists it needed in time from the European headquarters. The most important challenge I see in the case study is to overcome the evident cultural differences. To name a few, the differences in power distance and the individualism vs. collectivism. Napoli needs to understand that the local network is important and very powerful and that he needs to have interpersonal relationships with his co-managers in order to be successful in India.
There was no attempt to look across the portfolio of projects and prioritize projects nor was there adequate attention to the execution phases of the project. The results of this situation were twofold. First the lack of attention to basic project management practices has led to some project budget overruns and secondly, due to the financial situation there was a greater need to prioritize projects (i.e. they were searching for optimal use of capital funds). To address these issues corporate management requested the development of a formal project planning process, which would become the Project Management and Control System (PM&C).
The accrual method works best for these businesses because revenues and expenses can be balanced at the end of every reporting period. They simply need to refer back to the account when cash is paid and make an adjustment entry. The accrual method is most notable for its accuracy in reporting transactions.

Changing the formatting and organization of financial reports is a big undertaking for most businesses, but to require businesses to redo many years of financial data into a new format would be a great cost and a source of great frustration for companies. As I reviewed the format of example 1 on page 115, at first glance I was opposed to this change. The format was unfamiliar and difficult for me to read since I am accustomed to separate income, balance sheet and cash flow reports. But once I took my time to read the detail captions, I see how this format could make reading financial statements easier. I found the flow from assets/liabilities to income/expenses and finally ending with cash flows a better system than using three reports to review separately.
