Popa Ltd trade in a perishable commodity.

Popa Ltd trade in a perishable commodity. Each day Popa Ltd. receives supplies of the goods from a wholesaler but the quantity supplied is a random variable, as is the subsequent retail customer demand for the commodity. Both supply and demand are expressed in batches of 50 units and over the past working year (300 days), Popa Ltd. has kept records of supplies and demands. The results are given below:

Popa Ltd. buys the commodity at Rs 6 per unit and sells at Rs 10 per unit. At present unsold units at the end of the day are worthless and there are no storage facilities. Popa Ltd. estimates that each unit of unsatisfied demand on any day costs them Rs 2. Using the random numbers: 8, 4,….

In May 2013, Rebecca Young completed her MBA and moved to Toronto for a new job in investment banking.

In May 2013, Rebecca Young completed her MBA and moved to Toronto for a new job in investment banking. There, she rented a spacious, two-bedroom condominium for $3,000 per month, which included parking but not utilities or cable television. In July 2014, the virtually identical unit next door became available for sale with an asking price of $620,000, and Young believed she could purchase it for $600,000. She realized she was facing the classic buy-versus-rent decision. It was time for her to apply some of the analytical tools she had acquired in business school — including “time value of money” concepts — to her personal life. While Young really liked the condominium unit she was renting, as well as the condominium building itself, she felt that it would….

It was one of the most emotional legal meetings I have ever had with a client.

It was one of the most emotional legal meetings I have ever had with a client. Under the pressure of a major lawsuit, a husband and wife were desperate to find ways to protect their assets, principally their home. They had lived there for more than 25 years, almost their entire marriage. They had raised their kids in the home and had hoped to retire there and have their grandchildren visit on a regular basis. Regrettably, the outlook was bleak, and their dreams probably weren’t going to be realized. Their story was all too familiar. They had signed a business contract with a distributor, their business had taken a turn for the worse, and the financing and debts had spiraled out of control. The distributor was taking the….

The following practitioner commentary was contributed by Ellen Hawley McWhirter. She is an associate professor in the counseling psychology department at the University of Oregon. I was fortunate to be provided with very good theoretical training during both my master’s and doctoral programs. In addition to reading basic theories texts, for example, we were required to read Rogers, Ellis, Freud, Adler, and other theoreticians’ original works. However, it was not reading about theories that helped me move from being able to describe theories to being able to describe what I do in consistent theoretical terms. It was the combination of practicing, trying out, and receiving supervision on my attempts to live out theory in my sessions. When I was completing my predoctoral internship, I had a wonderful supervisor….

I ’ll always remember one of the most emotional and moving consultations of my career.

I ’ll always remember one of the most emotional and moving consultations of my career. I was still relatively young, and I often felt awkward and inadequate when consulting older clients who clearly had more life experience than I did. However, I have learned time and again that my older clients look to me for advice not because of my age, but because of my education and experience. As Indiana Jones said in Raiders of the Lost Ark, “It’s not the years, honey. It’s the mileage.” In this particular instance, my clients were in their mid-60s, at the end of their W-2 careers with a meager retirement account, and looking down the barrel at Social Security as their primary source of retirement income. They were meeting with me….

Scheduling the Safety Lab

Scheduling the Safety Lab

“Now see here, Tom, I understand your problem well,” remarked dr. Polly, director of the research Laboratories. “I pay you a good salary to run the safety labs. That salary also includes doing the necessary scheduling to match our priorities. now, if you can’t handle the job, I’ll get someone who can.”

Tom: “Every Friday morning your secretary hands me a sheet with the listing of priorities for the following week. once, just once, I’d like to sit in on the director’s meeting and tell you people what you do to us in the safety lab when you continually shuffle around the priorities from week to week.

“on Friday afternoons, my people and I meet with representatives from each project to establish the following….

You are a strong believer in the Project Management Code of Conduct established by PMI.

For each question, assume that you are a project manager working for a private sector contractor and are managing more than one project to prepare for hosting the Olympic Games. There are several possible alternatives to many of these questions, but your job is to think about what you would do.

1. You read over the statement of work for the project and discover that it was based on erroneous assumptions. Your cost baseline is insufficient to get the work done. What should you do next?

2. Some of the political stakeholders that are part of the OCOG appear to have hidden agendas and are now changing your project’s requirements. This will cause a cost overrun. You are not sure if the changes are necessary. What should you….
