The billing specialists do the initial computer input and handle the majority of the cases. Normally this occurs without any need for DocSystems intervention or assistance, but occasionally there are difficult issues that arise. For example, a cardiologist may have conducted a certain procedure that fits more than one category in the DocSystems database, and the billing specialist may be unsure how to categorize it accurately.

Read the DocSystems Billing case, including the briefing document and four scenes, and consider the following questions:

1. What problems exist in this organization? How do these problems differ based on the employees’ roles? Why do employees object to Jim’s proposed solution?

2. Make a recommendation to the client about what could be done next based on the data included. Summarize your observations for Jim, offer possible interpretations, and suggest an approach for next steps.

What is brand name effect or brand effect, to understand what it is, one thing needs to be questioned, what is a brand? The brand usually is seen as the unique design and symbol for particular products, however, this is a common misunderstanding to many people. A brand is not only embodying the design and symbol but also include the emotional demand of certain consumer groups who value the product concept (Keller & Lehmann, 2006). In another word, the targeted consumer’s attitudes towards to the products are substantially shaped by the brand value

What is brand name effect or brand effect, to understand what it is, one thing needs to be questioned, what is a brand?

A brand is not only embodying the design and symbol but also include the emotional demand of certain consumer groups who value the product concept (Keller & Lehmann, 2006). In another word, the targeted consumer’s attitudes towards to the products are substantially shaped by the brand value (Rao & Monroe, 1989). Therefore, the brand effect comes from the consumers’ knowledge and the attitude toward the brand. The basic theory of brand effect is that the quality of a product can only be….

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA was formed in 1994 under the presidency of Bill Clinton. NAFTA is a trade agreement between the United States, Canada and Mexico (Schermerhorn & Bachrach, 2015). This was formed to allow the flow of goods, services, workers and investments among these countries.

Hey Michelle.  You are right on target with your assessment of NAFTA. It makes sense to eliminate tariffs between countries in North America in an effort to boost trade. The exploitation of the system is really unfortunate. An example of this is the Chevy Camaro being manufactured at a plant in Ontario, Canada. When automobiles are assembled in Mexico, Canada, etc, the jobs follow and this is unfortunate for the hub cities that depend on those jobs such as Michigan, Austin, Texas, etc. When I bought my Camaros, I was really bummed out find that my American sports cars were assembled outside of the US. The good news is that in 2012 they decided to move production back to the US and the 2015 models have been manufactured in….

Hostess Brands, an American company established in the 1930s, specialized in baked goods including the long established Twinkies, Ho Ho’s, and Wonder Bread.  In November of 2012, Hostess management filed for bankruptcy, blaming the unions and workforce for the financial fiasco. While the organized workforce’s unwillingness to bend to management’s demands may have been a tipping point in the Hostess failure, it was clearly not the main issue. Hostess’s unwillingness or inability to change over time was what really led to the company’s downfall. According to Forbes contributor Adam Hartung, the “obvious problem was that leadership kept trying to sell the same products, using roughly the same business model, long, long, long after the products had become irrelevant.”[1] . Points which should have invoked change for Hostess include: changing consumer tastes, nutritional considerations,….

Provision for Loan Losses Another item that you need to discuss in the Earnings and Profitability section is the Provision for Loan Losses. Your main concern here is whether the provisions are adequate to maintain the Allowance for Loan Losses at an appropriate level. If the allowance is too low relative to risk in the loan portfolio, additional provisions will be necessary, which must be taken out of earnings.

Liquidity Consider your bank’s Uniform Bank Performance Report (UBPR) and provide an overview of your bank’s liquidity by reviewing the following areas:

1. Liquidity and Funding Ratios especially the Net Non-Core Funding Dependence and Loan to Assets Ratios – The first ratio measures the degree to which the bank is funding longer-term assets (loans, securities that mature in more than one year, etc.) with non-core funding. Non-core funding includes funding that can be very sensitive to changes in interest rates such as brokered deposits, CDs greater than $100,000, and borrowed money. Higher ratios reflect a reliance on funding sources that may not be available in times of financial stress or adverse changes in market conditions. What are the trends in these ratios? How do they compare to the….

Deciding to expand to a new market is a big decision for a company. There are many considerations that they need to take and precautions to consider for this venture to be beneficial. Before the Internet age, this expansion meant large entry barriers and even bigger investments.

Deciding to expand to a new market is a big decision for a company. There are many considerations that they need to take and precautions to consider for this venture to be beneficial. Before the Internet age, this expansion meant large entry barriers and even bigger investments. What is interesting about market expansion in today’s markets is that technology lowers a lot of these barriers and requires the companies to be even more careful when making these decisions because despite the entry barriers being lowered, the risk of possible failure is not.              Three examples of app-based companies that are currently expanding into new markets are the tech giants Amazon, Uber and Airbnb. Amazon has always had a track record of encroaching on new markets. There newest market venture….

The six ways that a company can expand into a foreign market are; Exporting, Turnkey Projects, licensing, Franchising, Joint Ventures, and whole subsidiary (Hill,2017). Although there are many pros and cons to each of the entry methods, it is too hard to say how a country will respond to what product and vice versa.

The six ways that a company can expand into a foreign market are; Exporting, Turnkey Projects, licensing, Franchising, Joint Ventures, and whole subsidiary (Hill,2017). Although there are many pros and cons to each of the entry methods, it is too hard to say how a country will respond to what product and vice versa. The best thing to note is that each culture should be thoroughly researched and without violating any laws, or cultural norms, should be thoroughly examined. Market entry is also dependent on a firm’s core competencies (Hill, 2017). How a company views its product and what it measures its product in comparison to the local culture it is trying to win over, will likely also play a role in success. While some countries are keen….

THE FIVE STAGES-OF-GROWTH-It is possible to identify all societies, in their economic dimensions, as lying within one of five categories: the traditional society, the preconditions for take-off, the take-off, the drive to maturity, and the age of high mass-consumption.

THE FIVE STAGES-OF-GROWTH- A SUMMARY

It is possible to identify all societies, in their economic dimensions, as lying within one of five categories: the traditional society, the preconditions for take-off, the take-off, the drive to maturity, and the age of high mass-consumption.

THE TRADITIONAL SOCIETY

First, the traditional society. A traditional society is one whose structure is developed within limited production functions, based on pre-Newtonian science and technology, and on pre-Newtonian attitudes towards the physical world. Newton is here used as a symbol for that watershed in history when men came widely to believe that the external world was subject to a few knowable laws, and was systematically capable of productive manipulation.

The conception of the traditional society is, however, in no sense static; and it would not….
