Within the Discussion Board area, write 600800 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.. As the firm looks for ways to offset the domestic downturn in sales, Deborah, the CEO of your company, wants to determine if a global strategy is a good fit for the organization. She has designated you as the manager for this project. You will work with your team to develop a global marketing plan for your organization. You begin your research in deciding if and what the global strategy should be. You get your team together and begin to discuss a plan on how you will research this possibility. You start the meeting by saying “Lets brainstorm and start to get a plan together for a possible globalization strategy. Tiffany, Id like you work with me to begin researching possible locations.” Tiffany says, “I think we need to research some locations, but I think there is more to it than that. There still needs to be a decision on the type of strategy or approach we are taking. Would we use a multidomestic approach, a global approach, or a transnational approach? Im still not entirely convinced a global strategy is the answer.” Great point, Tiffany. It is obvious to me as well that we need to explore a strategy that will put us in a better position to handle the economic downturn. We have to provide the board with the facts. They seem to be leaning in the direction of a global strategy, but I’m not sure it’s the right move either. That’s why we need to do research. Domestic profit margins have dropped by 2% this quarter. You wonder how you and your team can help fix this. Is a global strategy the answer, or should the company continue to focus on the domestic market? You call a team meeting to learn about the progress of their research. Tiffany, one of your team members, begins the discussion. “I think we need to look at some of the internal factors,” she says. “We know what our capabilities are on the domestic front, but what about in the global market? We have a fairly strong market presence here in higher-end markets, but how does that translate globally?” Discuss the following: How do you define a global strategy? Compare and contrast global strategy with other international expansion strategies. Identify a minimum of 3 possible countries for globalization. Research each of these locations in the furniture industry, and document both the pros and cons of using these in global strategy. What country would you choose? What evidence can you provide in support of your choice? What evidence might somebody else, who does not agree with you, provide to support an alternative choice?
What is the purpose of the balance sheet? Be sure to discuss the three key elements that make up the balance sheet. How does the balance sheet related to the income statement?
BACKGROUND OF THE PROBLEM: The market situation: The risk-free rate is 5% and the market risk premium is 8%. The firms corporate tax rate is 35%. The firm has a beta of 1.10. Common Stock is listed on the balance sheet of this company at $25 million. The Total Retained Earnings (meaning RE + Additions to Retained Earnings) is listed on the balance sheet as $50 million. Long-term Debt consists of one outstanding bond issue with a face value of $75 million dollars, an 8 percent coupon rate and it sells for 93 percent of par. A proposed project has expected cash inflows of year 1, $30,000; year 2, $40,000; year 3, $30,000 and year 4, $40,000. There is no residual value at the end of year Deliverables ANSWER THE FOLLOWING in 5 pages (be sure to see paper requirements below for more expectations):What is the cost of equity using the CAPM?

Explain.What literature article supports Net Present Value over IRR or Payback Paper Requirements The cover page and reference page/s are not included in the page requirement or word count of 5 pages for this assignment. These should be in addition to page requirements. Papers need to be formatted in proper APA 6th Edition style. Each paper requires a minimum of at least three outside peer-reviewed sources for your references. Acceptable/credible sources include: Academic journals and books, industry journals, and the class textbook. You could use credible business website sources in addition to the peer-reviewed required sources, but avoid Wikipedia and Google. These are academic papers that need to include scholarly research. Using your textbook is required as well to demonstrate that you have read the required material. TEXTBOOK: Foerster, S. (2015). Financial Management.

Assignment Question(s):Part-11. Define motivation and explain three motivational theories from the chapter. What kinds of needs motivate employees? Is a good reward good enough? How do other factors affect motivation? 2. What are the types of incentives I might use to influence employee behavior? How can I use compensation and other rewards to motivate people? Use at least 3 scientific references to support your answers. Follow APA-style when referencing.Part-2Students sometimes report negative experiences when working with teams, particularly if they have experienced a social-loafer in the group. Some argue that social loafing is less prevalent in the workplace because the rewards and sanctions are more closely aligned to individual performance. An interesting argument for individuals’ willingness to work and contribute in a group has been posed by Fishbach and colleagues. They argue that identification with others in the group and the group goal is fundamental to an individual’s choice to opt into and participate effectively within the group.3. How important do you think group identification really is to an individual’s motivation to work on a task? Do you think this could differ between individuals? What other factors would be relevant? 4. Can you identify the alignment between the argument posed by Fishbach and colleagues to other models or theories of motivation posed throughout this chapter? 5. What strategies could you use to improve group identification, goal commitment, and member motivation when working in a group?
Create a budget analysis report of the current failed project and a project estimation report for the turnaround project.This portfolio work project, a budget analysis and cost estimating artifact, is based on the Revive LLC case study for the development of a new online employee orientation module. Both human resources (HR) and information technology (IT) employees, as well as contractors, will be used in this project.Cost management is defined as “primarily concerned with the cost of the resources needed to complete the project activities” (Project Management Institute, 2017, p. 233.). Also, consideration needs to be taken with respect to project costs and stakeholder differences. Financial performance techniques provide both internal and external measurement capabilities that allow for decision making, financial analysis, and mitigation strategies.Effective cost management involves establishing a cost baseline for measuring project performance. Establishing the project baseline is like establishing a point of reference. Whatever that point of reference, it will become the baseline against which project performance will be measured. This cost baseline becomes the basis for more advanced techniques, such as earned value management (EVM).Project cost management includes planning for the resources needed: the people, equipment, and materials. With the use of proven estimating techniques, an estimate is presented to the project sponsor and management for approval. Upon approval, the cost estimate becomes the official budget for the project. As the project goes through the normal project lifecycle, cost control techniques track and monitor the budget, which allow you to make sure you will not incur a budget overrun.ReferenceProject Management Institute.
