Agape 2 In order to sell a product at a profit the product must be priced higher than the total of what it costs you to build the unit, plus period expenses, and plus overhead. At the end of last year the broad cost leader Chester had an Elite product Camp. Use the Inquirer's Production Analysis to find Camp's production cost, (labor+materials).

What is the minimum price the product could have been sold for to cover the unit cost, period expenses, and overhead? 3 Select all of the following statements that are true three years from now, in the year 2024. 4 Your team has recently experienced some difficulties and setbacks.

Which of the following actions would be most effective in helping your team attain its goals? 6 You were recently hired by the Andrews CEO as a consultant to evaluate the performance of the Chief Financial Officer (CFO). As part of that process, you interview the CFO's direct reports (employees). Although they indicate that the CFO is technically competent, one individual told you stories about the CFO's verbal abuse with employees. Given this information, what would be the most effective next step in the process? 7 You are having a lunch meeting with a loyal and very good customer. Over lunch you happen to mention that your application to an exclusive golf club was denied for the second time. Your customer responds, "Hey, why didn’t you tell me? My family has been members there for 40 years, let me make a phone call, I’m sure we can get it worked out." Which of the following statements should represent your primary concern about this situation? 8 Looking forward to next year, if Digby’s current cash amount is $17,334 (000) and cash flows from operations next period are unchanged from this period and Digby takes ONLY the following actions relating to cash flows from investing and financing activities: Issues $2,000 (000) of long-term debt Pays $4,000 (000) in dividends Retires $10,000 (000) in debt Which of the following activities will expose Digby to the most risk of needing an emergency loan? 9 Investing $1,500,000 in TQM's Channel Support Systems initiative will at a minimum increase demand for your products 1.7% in this and in all future rounds. (Refer to the TQM Initiative worksheet in the CompXM Decisions menu.) Looking at the Round 0 Inquirer for Andrews, last year's sales were $173,506,388. Assuming similar sales next year, the 1.7% increase in demand will provide $2,245,234 of additional revenue. With the overall contribution margin of 34.1%, after direct costs this revenue will add $947,654 to the bottom line. For simplicity, Final Board Question Bank, CapSim Business Simulation assume that the demand increase and margins will remain at last year's levels. How long will it take to achieve payback on the initial $1,500,000 TQM investment, rounded to the nearest month? 10 In three years, assuming the competitive environment remains unchanged, how many units of Cure will Chester be selling in the Nano market segment? 11 Larry is in charge of collecting customer service and satisfaction data for his company.

After the call, one of your co-workers stopped by to see you. She proceeded to give you some feedback about the call and finished by asking, "why were you so impatient with them?

Which of the following actions BEST DESCRIBES how to improve your own cross-cultural communication with your colleagues in India? 13 Which description best fits Andrews?

Through past investments in recruiting and training Baldwin has obtained a productivity index of 109.4%. This means that Baldwin's labor costs would be increased by 9.4% if it did not have these productivity improvements. This is a competitive advantage that Baldwin can sustain or even widen further if its competitors have no HR initiatives. Now, refer to the Income Statement in Baldwin's Annual Report. How much did Baldwin's productivity improvements save it in direct labor costs (in thousands) last year? Select: 1Save Answer 15 Dot is a product of the Digby Company. Digby's sales forecast for Dot is 506 units. Digby wants to have an extra 10% of units on hand above and beyond their forecast in case sales are better than expected.
