Case Project Part 3

The following Course Outcomes are assessed in the Unit 5 Assignment Case Project Part 3:

GB519-3: Examine global interconnectedness as it applies to managerial accounting and decision-making.

PC-3.2: Interact with others in a professional manner using appropriate communication and presentation skills.

The third and final part of the case project is due at the end of Unit 5. You will create a PowerPoint presentation with voiceover. The voiceover will be the narrative you would be presenting if this were a live presentation. You will, in essence, be making a presentation to your colleagues and instructor based primarily on your Unit 4 Case Paper.

Your Unit 4 Case Study Part 2 will be the beginning point for your PowerPoint presentation. Begin with a brief introduction on the introductory slide. Then, using your Unit 4 case study assignment as the basis, build a PowerPoint presentation that discusses all required components of the analysis of your selected manufacturing organization.

GB519: Measurement and Decision Making | Unit 4

Assignment: Case Study Part 2 This is Part 2 of the case study project and is due in Unit 4. (Part 3 will be completed in Unit 5.)

The following Course Outcome is assessed in this assignment:

GB519-2: Evaluate leadership approaches to the process of decision-making.

Part 2 of the project, due at the end of Unit 4, requires you to complete an analysis of a manufacturing

organization. This evaluation will also provide the foundation for Part 3 of the project.

Note: Do not delay — Read all instructions and start work on your project immediately during Unit 1. The Unit

4 Case Project Paper cannot be submitted later than the end of Unit 5. A 1-week (10%) late penalty will be

assessed for papers submitted late.

Your project organization must be selected from the approved case company list located at the end of this

document.

A title page with properly APA-formatted running head, an abstract, and reference pages are required. Review

the “APA Template” and “APA Sample Paper” documents in the writing resources located within the Course

Resources in the left navigation Content pane. Incorporate all guidance from your Unit 3 Case Part 1.

1. Begin with an introduction to the organization. Identify its manufacturing segment. Detail briefly the

products manufactured by your organization and the company’s market niche and/or customer base.

2. Identify significant costs in your organization. Some of the topics to research and present about your

organization include but are not limited to: (a) costs associated with environmental concerns, (b) cost

behavior, (c) prevention costs, (d) appraisal (detection) costs, (e) internal failure costs, and (f) external

failure costs.

3. Include a section devoted to cost-volume-profit analysis (CVP). Review Chapters 18 and 19 in your

textbook. The level of detail you include in this section is flexible. But, make sure your analysis is

related to actual financial data from the company. Suggested metrics include the contribution margin,

degree of operating leverage (DOL), break-even point, and others. Remember, it is vital that you

determine whether or not you will have access to this information before you start the project.

Otherwise, you may not have time to change organizations later during the course.

4. Discuss budgeting considerations. Include the organization’s budget process (for example, whether it is

top-down or bottom-up) and the organization’s budget variances, and discuss management decisions

related to budgeting.

5. Based on independent research and additional textbook readings, create a balanced scorecard

(BSC), incorporating all four of the organizational dimensions (financial, customer, internal business,

and learning & growth). Identify two or three strategic objectives (SOs), also known as critical success

factors (CSFs), for each category/perspective. Then, evaluate and analyze your organization’s

performance in relation to these critical success factors. (To help you with this part, review the material

found on pages 14-17 and 24-17 to 24-19 of the textbook.) Do not simply cut and paste a BSC

collected from an online source. Create your own BSC.

Additional readings/references to use for this project:

GB519: Measurement and Decision Making | Unit 4

Use an Advanced Search in the Purdue Global Library to access the following:

Balaji, M., Dinesh. S. N., & Parthiban. V. V. (2018). Applying balanced scorecards to supply chain

performance: More enterprises in developing countries should adopt Kaplan and Norton

innovation. ISE: Industrial & Systems Engineering at Work, 50(11), 42.

Eaton, D., & Kilby, G. (2015). Does your organizational culture support your business strategy? Journal for

Quality & Participation, 37(4), 4.

6. Discuss corporate sustainability and responsibility.

a) Identify the concepts of corporate sustainability.

b) Identify the topics related to corporate responsibility.

c) Discuss how your organization implements the concepts of corporate sustainability and

responsibility.

d) Discuss how your organization could further benefit from additional attention to sustainability

and responsibility.

7. Analyze potential biases in the organization’s decision-making processes.

a) Evaluate the role of heuristics in managerial decision-making within your organization.

b) Evaluate how heuristics may bias your organization’s management decision-making.

8. Finally, end with a summary review. (A formal “Conclusion” heading and section is required.) Use

subheadings to discuss key strengths and weaknesses of the organization and describe

recommendations to be made to the current organizational strategy.

Part 2 of the project should have a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 10 double-spaced pages of analysis. The

assignment will be evaluated for content, analysis, critical thinking, grammar, spelling, punctuation, and

formatting. So, be sure to proofread and then proofread again! Be certain that you do a “Spelling and

Grammar” check on your project paper before it is submitted to the Dropbox.

Include the appropriate headings and subheadings for every section of the project. A good strategy will be to

use the assignment rubric as a basic outline for headings and subheadings.

The 8- to 10-page minimum/maximum does not include the required title, abstract, and reference list pages. Do

not use enlarged type, extra line spaces, extra points at the end of a line, oversized graphs and charts, or

unusual margins to artificially inflate the page length — the score will be significantly reduced if the proper APA

formatting for these elements is not applied.

Do not use wordy phrases. Do use economy of expression. Use concise and precise language that avoids

slang or colloquial expressions. For example, instead of using “on the other hand,” simply use “alternatively.”

Your project must be presented in accordance with the guidance found in the APA Publication Manual, 6th

edition. The Writing Lab is a tremendous resource, so please take full advantage of the great help available

there. You may access the Writing Lab by going to your My Studies tab located at the campus home page.

Then, access the Academic Success Center link. The writing resources will be located there for your access.

One very important suggestion will be to use the Writing Center’s paper review service. You do not have to

wait until your paper is fully completed to ask for a review. One thing to note, though — the Writing Lab will not

GB519: Measurement and Decision Making | Unit 4

be able to provide any feedback related to the specifics of the assignment content. However, they will be able

to provide sample guidance about spelling, grammar, formatting, punctuation, and all elements of a formal

written analysis.

Remember, this assignment will be processed using the Turnitin software to determine the level of original

content in the assignment. Please review the Syllabus and the University Academic Policy regarding

plagiarism. Excessive similarity to existing works will result in varying consequences, depending on the nature

of the similarity.

You must name your assignment using this format: LastName_FirstName_Unit#_AssignmentName. For

example: Smith_Joan_Unit4_CasePart2.

The Unit 4 Case Paper Assignment must be submitted no later than the end of Unit 5 for consideration.

Assignments submitted late will be subject to a 10% late penalty. Assignments submitted after the end of Unit

5 will not be accepted for credit.

The Unit 4 Case Study/Course Project Assignment Rubric has been provided here and in Course Resources.

Rubrics are an integral part of all assignment instructions. Please review the rubric document for a complete

understanding of how your assignments will be assessed. Doing so will help you successfully complete your

assignments.

Looking ahead: You may submit the case study Part 3 PowerPoint presentation only after the case study Part

2 feedback file has been returned to you.

Submit your completed assignment to the Unit 4 Assignment Dropbox. Assignments are due Tuesday 11:59

p.m. ET of their assigned unit.

GB519: Case Study Part 2

Note: Use the major, numbered bold headings below as Level 1 headings in your paper, and use shortened versions of the segments in the sections as Level 2 subheadings in your paper. Note: Review all comments in the margins and body of the manuscript feedback returned to your dropbox.

GB519: Measurement and Decision Making | Unit 3

Assignment: Case Study Part 1 This is Part 1 of the case study project and is due in Unit 3. (Part 2 will be completed in Unit 4, and Part 3 will

be completed in Unit 5.)

Important Note: Do not delay — Read all instructions and start work on your project immediately during Unit

1. The Unit 4 Case Project Paper cannot be submitted later than the end of Unit 5. A 1-week (10%) late

penalty will be assessed for papers submitted late.

Your project organization must be selected from the approved case company list located at the end of this

document.

1. Only the title page, abstract, properly APA-formatted headings and subheadings for the final analysis

paper and preliminary reference list are due in Unit 3.

2. The full case study will be due in Unit 4.

3. A PowerPoint presentation for the case will be due in Unit 5.

4. The case project is developed over three units: 3, 4, and 5. The case project should be considered a

single assignment, not three separate assignments. Therefore, do not overemphasize the score on any

single component of the case. Rather, take a broader and more accurate view of the case project as a

single unified assignment worth a total of 200 points. The case project point distribution is as follows:

Part I (Due Unit 3) -The initial formatting/outline = 25 Points

Part II (Due Unit 4) – The full paper (analysis) = 100 Points

Part III (Due Unit 5) – The case PowerPoint presentation = 75 Points

Total Case Assignment Points = 200 Points

5. The textbook, assignment instructions, classroom/course assignment instructions, etc. use several terms

interchangeably. The following terms can be understood as referring to your project or individual elements

of the project: case project, project, case or case paper. If you have any questions about any of the

terminology, please do not hesitate to ask in the Virtual Office.

6. Much of the case project will be an exercise in developing your skill at following instructions. Therefore, be

sure to read all assignment instructions (for all Units — 3, 4, and 5) very carefully before starting

the writing process.

Gentle Reminder: If you do not understand plagiarism and how to avoid violating the rules of academic

integrity, please review the tutorial in the classroom titled “Plagiarism.” It can be found under the Academic

Tools tab. All written papers (and many of the Discussion Board posts) will be submitted to Turnitin to

determine originality of content.

GB519: Measurement and Decision Making | Unit 3

Unit 3 Case Part 1 Assignment Specifics:

Part 1 of the case, due in Unit 3, includes creating the title page, abstract, Level 1 APA headings and Level 2

APA subheadings, and preliminary reference list for a formal analysis paper. However, you must preview the

Units 4 and 5 assignment instructions also to fully understand the requirements for the Unit 3 Case

Assignment.

The order of presentation must follow the grading rubric order.

Be thorough! Short answers do not provide the necessary analysis or critical thinking. Be sure to complete all

required rubric sections for all parts.

Important Notes:

1. Your Unit 3 Assignment should only include sufficient page length to include: title page, abstract, full

paper headings and subheadings (which will be used for the full analysis in Unit 4) and a preliminary

reference list.

2. Use the APA template provided in the classroom Course Resources as the foundation for constructing

your Unit 3 Assignment, but do not submit your assignment with any of the original APA template content

remaining in your assignment Word® document.

3. A properly formatted title page with running head and abstract is required.

4. Do not include a table of contents.

5. Do not repeat or copy the assignment question narratives. You may use abbreviated versions of the

questions as headings and subheadings. Anything that artificially increases the length of the paper but

does not add value to the analysis will result in a reduced score.

6. For more specific information and guidance, please access the following resources available in the writing

resources located within the Academic Success Center area in the left navigation pane:

a. “How to Write an Abstract”

b. “How to Get Help with Your Writing”

c. “APA Headers and Title Page Tutorial”

d. “Using Headings and Subheadings in APA”

e. “APA Reference Page

f. “Formal Versus Informal Writing”

GB519: Measurement and Decision Making | Unit 5

Assignment: Case Study Part 3 Turn in Part 3 of the case study at the end of Unit 5.

The following Course Outcome is assessed in this assignment:

GB519-3: Examine global interconnectedness as it applies to managerial accounting and decision-making.

The third and final part of the case study is due at the end of Unit 5. Part 2 of the case study is a PowerPoint

presentation with voiceover recording. The voiceover will be the narrative you would be presenting if this were

a live presentation. You will be making a presentation to the board of directors of your organization.

Your Unit 4 Case Study Part 2 Assignment will be the starting point for your PowerPoint presentation.

However, the presentation will include an additional segment not required in the case paper. If you have not

submitted the Unit 4 Case Study Part 2 Assignment, you will not be eligible to submit Unit 5 Case Study Part

3.

Like the Unit 4 Case Study Part 2 Assignment, your PPT presentation should:

• Be based on the unit reading and additional articles.

• Begin with a brief review of the organization. Keep in mind that the members of the board may or may

not have read the report you completed in Parts 1 and 2 of the project. Even though this will be a brief

presentation, it should include all essential information and data.

• Identify significant costs in your organization.

• Include a section devoted to cost-volume-profit analysis (CVP).

• Discuss budgeting considerations. Include the organization’s budget process and budget variances and

discuss management decisions related to budgeting.

• Present a balanced scorecard, incorporating all four of the organizational dimensions (financial,

customer, internal business, and learning and growth).

New Requirement for the Presentation: Next, incorporate a discussion of “global interconnectedness” as it

applies to your organization. Use the textbook and the additional article readings as a basis for analysis. For

example, how do global economic pressures impact your organization? Are there any direct or indirect

international competitors? If so, how is that competition managed? Discuss any heuristic implications or biases

based on global interconnectedness.

Finally, end with a summary review of the performance evaluation. (A formal “Conclusion” slide is required.)

What are the key strengths and weaknesses of the organization? What changes would you recommend be

made to the current organizational strategy?

Additional content could include a discussion of any potential biases that could potentially impact the outcome

of the decision-making process related to the continued success of the organization.

The PowerPoint presentation should include 12–14 slides. The first slide must be a title slide, and the final

slide must be your reference list. The audio presentation (voiceover) should be 15–20 minutes long. In addition

to recording the voiceover, the text of your voiceover must be written into the Notes section of each slide.

Proper grammar and spelling will be an important part of the assignment. So, be sure to perform a spell check.https://kapextmediassl-a.akamaihd.net/business/GB519/1908D/ppt_voiceover.docxhttps://kapextmediassl-a.akamaihd.net/business/GB519/1908D/ppt_voiceover.docx

GB519: Measurement and Decision Making | Unit 5

Important Note: One of the most important techniques to use in any PowerPoint presentation is to create

clean, crisp slides that use a minimal number of bullet points. If the slide is too cluttered, the presentation

suffers. Therefore, the Notes section underneath each slide should be the place where all of the topics in that

slide are thoroughly developed. Do not add the body of your presentation to the slides. Only incorporate the

main “talking points,” then use the Notes section to add all of the body, thereby creating a more professional

and robust presentation.

Name your assignment filename using this format: LastName_FirstName_Unit#_AssignmentName. For
