1 Wow. After doing this 3-day nutrition assessment that is all I have to say. I actually thought I was a nutritious person, but I can see now that I really am not. In “My Plate” I fell really short in the vegetables, fruits, and dairy daily intake. I took in only 23% of the recommended vegetables, which actually really surprises me because, recently, I have been switching out my snack of choice for carrots, so I thought that would have been beneficial to me for this assignment; it doesn’t look like that was the case.

| Business Fundamentals Simulation Western Governors University JCT2, Task 1 | Business Fundamentals Simulation This paper presents an evaluation of a business simulation for the fictional company of MicroForce, Inc (the company). The simulation encompassed four independent quarters of business operations decisions in the manufacturing of microcomputers. Upon completion of each quarter the company’s management reviewed the previous quarter’s performance, and made necessary adjustments and decisions in an attempt to improve the market position in the future.

Soon after, the company raised more capital from their existing investor Bessemer Venture Partners as well as from Northwest Capital and US Venture Partners. Business was progressing well and in the quarter before September 1997, the company had revenues of $6.4 million with 3 big customers, and an offer to purchase from CellTech. Hansen planned for the company to be able to go public within 2 years if it gained more customers since it was too risky to depend on just 4 accounts, and maintained more stable revenues.

These are conservative figures but we aim not only to achieve these revenue targets but exceed these targets. The company plans to improve the margins on the existing products by 2% in the first year, 4% in the second and 6% in the third year.

I was surprise to see that this was the only region that was using 4 out of 5 recruiting methods. Since there is a budget, I would recommend too stay away from as much media use unless a specific hiring event is coming up. As we all know media advertising can use up all of the budget before you know it. With that being said, the cost for Job Services, Employee Referrals, & Posting to Company’s Job Board - would be the most cost effective and tend to generate a higher retention and low turnover rate. The Eastern Washington region is only using three out of five recruiting methods.

CCompany Financial Analysis In doing the company financials a couple of key things become apparent. One of the biggest factors in the financials is the consistency in Costco’s growth over the past four years. The four profit margins (Total Revenues, operating income, net profit margin, and Diluted net income per share) have for the most part been rising for the last four years. Costco may look like it’s not growing but having these constant margins along with the growth in revenues means that the profit (bottom line) for Costco is increasing. Costco is doing great job in making sure that revenues constantly grow as shown below while maintaining a proportional amount of expenses to keep the profits the same or a little high from the previous year.
Executive Summary The company has seen a banner year last year, but sales in the first quarter were down by 12% compared to previous years. To encourage more sales it is proposed that the company hold a goal achievement celebration that recognizes and rewards employees that are making their sales target and recognizes employees that are exceeding expectations. The goal is to encourage further sales and revenue stream in quarter three with the understanding that employees will continue to be rewarded and recognized for their hard work. To do this, it is proposed that the company host an event at Dave and Buster’s where food, entertainment, games, and awards can be given out. The event will begin with appetizers and drinks in the company’s
