Question

SLP2-5 SEEN BELOW. BUSSLP2, BUSSLP3, BUSSLP4, BUSSLP5;BUSSLP2;In Module 2, you will continue with the scenario and simulation you began in the Module 1 SLP.;REQUIRED READING;SCENARIO CONTINUATION;SLP2 ? It?s New Year?s day, 2016. You just had a great New Year?s Eve celebration. You have finished;analyzing the performance of Clipboard Tablet Co. in a great report that you turned in a few days early to;Sally Smothers. Now you are ready to charge ahead into the future.;As you turn on the TV and try to open your eyes, you notice something strange. The TV commentator is;saying something about New Year?s Day, 2012. You are now wide awake and listen more carefully. Yes;she said 2012. But that can?t be. You look around and everything looks different. Yes, it?s true, it?s New;Year?s Day, 2012. Time has rewound ? a Time Warp, like the guy in the movie ?It?s Groundhog Day.?;You realize that you get to make the decisions for Clipboard Tablet Co. starting with 2012. Perhaps you;can do better than Joe Schmoe.;You decide to determine the prices and R&D allocations and whether to discontinue any products over;the next four years: 2012 ? 2015. At the beginning of each year, you will determine your pricing, your;R&D allocations, and if you want to discontinue any products. You make your decisions and time;advances to the end of that year. You look at the results and see what happened. You keep track of your;decisions and make notes about your reasoning and analysis of the data. You collect and keep the data;for later analysis.;You run the Marketing of Clipboard Tablet Co. through the end of 2015. It is now 12/31/2015, New Year?s;Eve. What is your total Score? Did you do better than Joe Schmoe?;You decide to organize your notes about your decisions, your analysis, and your reasoning into a report;which you think will help you move ahead into 2016 (finally!!, you get to move ahead into 2016 ? weren?t;you at this point in time once before??);ASSIGNMENT;Run the Clipboard Tablet Co. simulation with your strategy, making decisions year by year for prices and;R&D allocations.;http://forio.com/simulate/jelson/tablet?development?sim?1/simulation/;Please turn in a 4 to 6 page paper, not including cover and reference page, in which you;Write a report that shows your decisions and the results. Discuss why you did better or worse than Joe;Schmoe.;KEYS TO THE ASSIGNMENT;The key aspects of this assignment that should be covered and taken into account in preparing your;paper include;As you run the simulation keep track of your decisions and keep track of the results ? both;financial and marketing. You can copy and paste the results into Excel or into a Word document.;You can also record the information that you get from the Advisor who discusses the market and;compares Clipboard Tablet Co. products to the competition. Make note of the Final Total Score.;You should include your Final Total Score, some tables and/or graphs showing some of the;results. Be sure to explain the differences clearly and using good logic.;Remember that the key here is ANALYSIS.;Time Line Summary;SLP1;2015: 12/15 hired. 12/30 turned in first report to Sally a few days early. 12/31 ? celebrated;SLP2;Time Warp begins: 1/1/2016 WARPS INTO 1/1/2012;You freak out, and then realize you have to make decisions for 2012 ? 2015.;1/2/2012 input decisions for 2012;1/2/2013 input decisions for 2013;1/2/2014 input decisions for 2014;1/2/2015 input decisions for 2015;12/31/2015 ? you have gone through all four years, and you write your report to summarize how;you did. You are hoping that you will wake up tomorrow and it will be 2016.;ASSIGNMENT EXPECTATIONS;Your paper will be evaluated on the following seven (7) points;Precision ?

This means include citations and quotation marks for direct quotes of more than;5 words, and citations for that information which you have ?borrowed? or paraphrased from other;sources.;BUSSLP3;BACKGROUND;In Module 3, you will continue with the scenario and simulation you worked on in the Module 1 and;Module 2 SLPs.;REQUIRED READING;SCENARIO CONTINUATION;It?s New Year?s Day, 2016. You just had a great New Year?s Eve celebration, you finished analyzing the;performance of Clipboard Tablet Company and are ready to charge ahead into the future. As you turn on;the TV and try to open your eyes, you notice something strange (again). The TV commentator is saying;something about New Year?s Day, 2012. You have a sinking feeling, and sure enough, it?s back to;1/1/2012. You realize that you are in Time Warp 2.;This time you decide to do your decision making differently. You are going to use a technique that you;became familiar with last year, CVP analysis. And you are going to decide all of your decisions at once.;No feeling your way through it this time. You are going to make all of your decisions now, for the next four;years and just cruise through it this time.;You analyze the results of your first set of decisions that you made in Time Warp 1, from 2012 to 2015.;You have the data, you kept it all. But now you are going to use CVP analysis to help you determine your;new strategy. And you have a tool to use, the CVP Calculator.;You analyze the results using CVP and develop your complete four year strategy. You decide to make;notes about your analysis and your reasoning process, just in case you have to do this again (You are;praying that you can finally move ahead this time when you get to 2016.);You finish your report that shows your strategy that you are going to use these next four years during;Time Warp 2. And stop and take a big breath before you move ahead into 2012.;(In other words ? don?t run the simulation, yet. Just turn in this report.);ASSIGNMENT;Please turn in a 4 to 6 page paper, not including cover and reference page, in which, after again;reviewing and analyzing the results that you got in SLP2 (Time Warp 1 decisions), you develop a revised;strategy and make a case for this new strategy using analysis and relevant theories.;KEYS TO THE ASSIGNMENT;The key aspects of this assignment that should be covered and taken into account in preparing your;paper include;The revised strategy consists of the Prices, R&D Allocation %, and any product discontinuations;for the X5, X6, and X7 tablets for each of the four years: 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.;You must present a rational justification for this strategy. In other words, you must Make a Case;for your proposed strategy using financial analysis and relevant theories.;Use the CVP Calculator and review the PowerPoint that explains CVP and provides some;examples.;You need to CRUNCH some numbers (CVP Analysis) to help you determine your prices and;R&D allocations.;Make sure your proposed changes in strategy are firmly based in this analysis of financial and;market data and sound business principles.;Present your analysis professionally making strategic use of tables, charts and graphs.;TIME LINE SUMMARY;SLP1;2015: 12/15 hired. 12/30 turned in first report to Sally a few days early. 12/31 ? celebrated;SLP2;Time Warp 1 begins: 1/1/2016 WARPS INTO 1/1/2012;You freak out, and then realize you have to make decisions for 2012 ? 2015, which you do.;12/31/2015 ? you have gone through all four years, and you write your report to summarize how;you did. You are hoping that you will wake up tomorrow and it will be 2016.;SLP3;Time Warp 2 begins: 1/1/2016 WARPS INTO 1/1/2012 (Again);Now its 1/1/2012: you decide to use CVP analysis and develop a four year plan for your strategy.;You analyze the results of your first decisions in Time Warp 1 and make notes. You use the CVP;Calculator to help you develop your strategy and you make more notes explaining your logic and;your analysis. Then you take a short breather before you start in again tomorrow.;ASSIGNMENT EXPECTATIONS;Your paper will be evaluated on the following seven (7) points;Precision ?

You have just completed your revised;strategy using CVP analysis, and you are ready to charge ahead. You implement your decisions for 2012;and time flows by quickly. You see the results at the end of the year and you collect these results to use;later. Again, you implement your decisions that you have already made for 2013 and collect the results at;the end of the year. You do the same for 2014 and 2015, hoping this time that you can finally move ahead;into 2016.;It is now New Year?s Eve, 2015, what you hope is the end of Time Warp 2 and more than that, what you;hope is the end of the time warps altogether. You have the results of your decisions. How did you do?;What was your final score? You are ready to celebrate. You want to celebrate hard and forget this crazy;time warp stuff.
