Hugh McBride will address who the company’s stakeholders are, define the end-state vision, identify and evaluate alternatives, identify and access the risk of the alternatives, recommend optional solutions, create and implement solutions, and to access the outcomes. Beltway Investments are McBride Financial Services major investor. There are some that anticipate for the company to be run by implementing corporate governance. The company’s CEO has decided not to implement this option. The new CEO would rather operate the company without interference of the “money man.” Even though, this maybe a gamble due to corrupt the thinking that would affect Beltway’s public credit.
Two micrometers are lost because the expeditor most likely has picked up them up at the receiving dock and has taken them directly to the engineers. Since no documentation was in place to illustrate what has happened, it has become a financial and time loss to the company. Supply department also has to face with invoice for which they have no confirming documentation to support the payment for. There are also issues with suppliers claiming long overdue payments on materials that have been received by Blozis Company. Supply department would not do payment until they have received the receiving report, which is a good process as this controlled the possibility of paying for materials that are never received.
1) I think one of the mistakes Livingston made was to assume the source of the company's problem was the old computer financial reporting system. The old financial reporting system is only part of there was no collaboration to determine if the MCCS was the core problem of the company. Livingston made the determination that the MCCS was the root cause of losing contracts without other input. I would have gathered my team and perform an impact analysis to determine if there was any hidden problems with the current system that could be fixed in a faster cheaper way. Another issue is earlier on the meeting the MIS manager stated that he guessed the feasibility study would be the first step in the design, development and implementation of the new MCCS.
Legally, this could save the company bad publicity, a great amount of stress, and money that isn’t necessary to spend. Setting up mediation to come to an agreement outside of court is best for the company. If that means paying unemployment benefits to someone who has left the company at their own will, then so be it, going to court is risky, time consuming, and can become
In my assessment of the issue it was my opinion that the quality issue came from welding the actual problem derived from stamping. When presented with the question what is the major problem arose from I selected the machine as the major problem and the tonnage as an issue. Although these were good decision for the company I failed to recognize that sheet metal thickness as a minor cause. When dealing with the supplier issue I opted to drop supplier C and switch to suppliers A+B temporarily and try e-buying. MY decision was not the best solution for the company could create some unnecessaryproblems.
In the primary interest of our entity, its incumbent upon employers to find a right balance between the exceptions to the employment-at-will doctrine to avoid liabilities associated with the violations of the exceptions. The company in this scenario has grounds to terminate the supervisor, but I would issue him/her a written warning hoping that this situation can be resolved among us within our company. This is the case where the potential act of whistle blowing would help reveal the wrongdoing of the business world. I strongly believe that it takes a special person with strong morals to take the ramifications of whistle blowing. Losing a prized job, having to down size your life, and your life being wide open to scrutiny are effects of whistle blowing.
I knew I couldn’t handle the stress then because my family was demanding to much of my time. I would discuss with my husband that I wanted to one day be supervisor of business services and he would always say to me do you think you can handle the pressure and responsibility that come with it. I really didn’t understand what he was saying then; I just thought he was trying to talk me out of it. I decided to go for it and apply for the supervisor position that came up at my job. I knew I was skilled qualified for the position but I wasn’t degree qualified for the position.

Unfortunately, there are professional workplaces that discourage this type of thinking. A student may interview for a job that promotes critical thinkers, only to find out once they are hired, this is not the truth. Supervisors and managers see critical thinkers as a threat to their position and power. Critical thinkers need to learn thoughtfulness and sensitivity when offering their
Initially the consultants undertook a pre-audit by talking to staff, looking at work processes and department records. They then produced an initial report identifying some areas of concern. They suggested that Innovative Widgets: were not aware of their externals customer’s needs were not aware of internal customer’s needs did not have adequate policies and procedures for managing its customer service. Bruce Dawson, managing director needed help.
