Ethics 19666171

CA22-6 ETHICS (Change in Estimate) Mike Crane is an audit senior of a large public accounting firm who has just been assigned to the Frost Corporation’s annual audit engagement. Frost has been a client of Crane’s firm for many years. Frost is a fast-growing business in the commercial construction industry. In reviewing the fixed asset ledger, Crane discovered a series of unusual accounting changes, in which the useful lives of assets, depreciated using the straight-line method, were substantially lowered near the midpoint of the original estimate. For example, the useful life of one dump truck was changed from 10 to 6 years during its fifth year of service. Upon further investigation, Mike was told by Kevin James, Frost’s accounting manager, “I don’t really see your problem. After all, it’s perfectly legal to change an accounting estimate. Besides, our CEO likes to see big earnings!” Instructions

Answer the following questions.

(a) What are the ethical issues concerning Frost’s practice of changing the useful lives of fixed assets?

(b) Who could be harmed by Frost’s unusual accounting changes?

(c) What should Crane do in this situation?

Module 1 – Case

TECHNOLOGY, INNOVATION, AND CREATIVITY

Assignment Overview

In the readings for this module, you will find both discussions of the social processes of technological and social innovation as well as suggestions about where technologies may be going. Obviously, we can only touch on a few of the creative and innovative developments taking place around us. This assignment calls for you to further investigate specific kinds of innovations that are currently under development and think about how they will affect both using and non-using organizations and society generally down the road.

You can start with the background reading for suggestions about technologies to research, but you should also plan on doing searches using terms such as “emerging new creative technologies” or variants on that theme to identify new things you may not necessarily be aware of. Spread your search net broadly, and you will find a variety of interesting new developments to discuss.

Case Assignment

Prepare a 5- to 7-page paper in accordance with the following Assignment Expectations, on the topic:
“Emerging new creative technologies and what they will require organizations to do differently.”

Discuss at least three specific new technological developments that you know about personally or can research using the Internet. Describe them in some detail and provide references to them. Think about what they will require of their users that is not being done now, and how organizations might have to change to incorporate them. Estimate their long-term effects and what further developments they might stimulate. Conclude with a couple of paragraphs summarizing your conclusions across all the cases you have discussed.

Case Assignment Expectations

Length: The written component of this assignment should be 5-7 pages long (double-spaced) without counting the cover page and reference page.

Organization: Subheadings should be used to organize your paper according to the questions.

Grammar and Spelling: While no points are deducted for minor errors, assignments are expected to adhere to standard guidelines of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence syntax. Points may be deducted if grammar and spelling impact clarity. We encourage you to use tools such as grammarly.com and proofread your paper before submission.

When you write your paper, make sure you do the following:

Answer the assignment questions directly.

Stay focused on the precise assignment questions. Do not go off on tangents or devote a lot of space to summarizing general background materials.

Use evidence from your readings to justify your conclusions.

Cite at least five credible resources.

Reference your sources of information with both a bibliography and in-text citations. See the Student Guide to Writing a High-Quality Academic Paper, including pages 11-14 on in-text citations. Another resource is the “Writing Style Guide,” which is found under “My Resources” in the TLC Portal.

Your assignment will be graded using the following criteria:

Assignment-driven Criteria: Student demonstrates mastery covering all key elements of the assignment.

Critical Thinking/Application to Professional Practice: Student demonstrates mastery conceptualizing the problem, and analyzing information. Conclusions are logically presented and applied to professional practice in an exceptional manner.

Business Writing and Quality of References: Student demonstrates mastery and proficiency in written communication and use of appropriate and relevant literature at the doctoral level.

Citing Sources: Student demonstrates mastery applying APA formatting standards to both in-text citations and the reference list.

Professionalism and Timeliness: Assignments are submitted on time.

Module 1 – SLP

TECHNOLOGY, INNOVATION, AND CREATIVITY

The overall aim of the Session Long Project assignments in this course is to facilitate the further development of your DBA project, by developing the core of the literature review for your draft project. This will entail developing a structure for the material to be reviewed, identifying and accessing different kinds of source material, and organizing the material to support the aims of the project. At the end of this course, you are expected to have a working draft of chapter 2 of your DBA project that you can take into the next course, in which you develop a research methodology for the project.

It is important to stress that what you are developing here is only a draft. You are not bound by what you develop in this series of assignments; everything is subject to modification and improvement as you move toward the project itself. But it is important to take these assignments seriously, since they build toward a usable chapter. The more work you are able to put into your project during this course, the less you will be playing catch-up later on in the program, and the easier it will be to complete your project and obtain your degree.

During Module 1, you are expected to take the introduction to your project that you developed in your previous course, and annotate it to identify key areas in which literature will need to be searched and the other kinds of background information that you will need to develop in order to support your project.

Specifically, you are to:

Review your draft introduction that you developed previously. Using a copy of this introduction, develop an annotation for each paragraph in your introduction in which you identify various kinds of source material that might back up and justify the points made in the paragraph. Try to be as complete as you can. At this point, you do not need to describe specific sources; just the general kind of material you would like to search out in order to support your arguments.

It is possible that some paragraphs may not actually call for sources, if they are merely bridging text or are filler. In this case, you may simply note that this is a filler paragraph. There should not be very many of these if your draft is well prepared.

You may choose to use the “review” function in Microsoft Word to present your annotations, or you may choose some other form. In any event, be sure that your annotations are clearly set off from your draft introduction by making them in a different color from the original text. Here is an example taken from a proposal, showing the kinds of annotations that this assignment seeks from you:

When you have completed annotating each paragraph in your introduction, submit the annotated draft as your project assignment for this module.

SLP Assignment Expectations

Length: The written component of this assignment should be a copy of your draft introduction, however long that might be, with the required annotations either in the margin or in the text.

You may take the opportunity to revise and improve your introduction as you proceed.

Grammar and Spelling: While no points are deducted for minor errors, assignments are expected to adhere to standard guidelines of grammar, spelling, punctuation, and sentence syntax. Points may be deducted if grammar and spelling impact clarity. We encourage you to use tools such as grammarly.com and proofread your paper before submission.
As you complete your assignment, make sure you do the following:

Step I. Consider the Issues

In Assignment 3a, you were asked to create a PowerPoint identifying the four most critical threats out of eight threats provided in the table below.

Energy sources

Civil war

Globalization

Cultural taboos

There are four remaining threats that you did not discuss in your PowerPoint. This assignment will focus on those four. Here are the specific tasks you will complete: Review the remaining four threats that you did not use in Assignment 3a.
Pick two of the four to focus on in Assignment 3b. Identify the reasons why you think these two threats are less critical than the four threats you chose for your PowerPoint presentation.

Step II. Prepare Your Report

The UN has given you the following guidelines.

Introduction

Briefly introduce the topic of the analysis (about 100-150 words). State the topic and intent of the paper. Identify the four threats you will discuss in the paper in the order in which they appear in the paper.

Section I. Threat 1 Write an opening statement describing the perception of the threat. Write one page giving three reasons that explain why you saw this threat as less critical than the four you chose for your presentation in Assignment 3a. Support these reasons with at least three credible sources.

Section II. Threat 2 Write an opening statement describing the perception of the threat. Write one page giving three reasons to explain why you saw this threat as less critical than the four you chose for your presentation in Assignment 3a. Support these reasons with at least three credible sources.

Conclusion Offer a summary (one page or less) of your defense of your choices that the United Nations can use to address their prioritization concerns.

Formatting Requirements Your paper may consist of up to four pages (not including the cover or reference pages). Create headings for each section of your paper as follows: Introduction Threat 1 (include the name of your chosen threat) Threat 2 (include the name of your chosen threat) Conclusion Use and cite four to six credible sources in your analysis. You may use the same source for more than one threat as long as you use a minimum of four different sources. A list of potential resources is available at the end of this course guide. Make sure your paper contains both in-text citations and a source list, per SWS guidelines; refer to the Strayer Writing Standards (SWS) document for reference. Include a cover page with your name, the date you submitted the paper, and your instructor’s name.

Quantitative Analysis Discussion 4

 

Select any one of the following starter bullet point sections. Review the important themes within the sub questions of each bullet point. The sub questions are designed to get you thinking about some of the important issues. Your response should provide  a succinct synthesis of the key themes in a way that articulates a  clear point, position, or conclusion supported by research.  You are a marketing manager for a company that makes ready-to-eat  breakfast cereals. Your company recently initiated a loyalty program for  consumers, which resulted in a large purchaser database. The brand  managers are eager to mine the available data, which they can use to  design more effective promotional programs. The management of your  organization believes that to be effective, these programs have to take  into account significant cross-region (i.e., the East Coast, the West  Coast, the Midwest, and the South) purchase differences. Your task is to  test the hypothesis that there are significant cross-region differences  in purchasing patterns. Management has suggested that you use six  different two-way comparisons (directly comparing each region with every  other region), with each two-way comparison being suggested at the 5%  level. Assess how appropriate management’s proposed use of hypothesis  testing would be to validate management’s belief in cross-region  purchase differences. Explain the goal of this hypothesis testing experiment. Describe the mechanics of this hypothesis testing process. Explain why the organization would go through the trouble of  hypothesis testing in this situation. Support your discussion with  relevant examples, research, and rationale.
You are a manager working for an insurance company. Your job entails  processing individual claims filed by policyholders. In general, most  claims are relatively minor, costwise, but a few are quite expensive.  Each quarter, you compile a report summarizing key claims statistics  that includes the number of claims submitted, the mean cost per claim,  the median cost per claim, the proportion of claims being litigated, the  number of emergency procedures, the proportion of men versus women, and  the average age of claimants. Your measures are computed separately for  the southern and northern regions, and you are interested in  determining whether or not there are statistically significant  differences between the two regions on each of the aforementioned  measures. Evaluate which comparisons would require the use of the t-test and which would use the chi-squared test. Explain your answers. Support your discussion with relevant examples, research, and rationale.
In the past several weeks, you have been introduced to a range of  statistical data analysis tools. Consider what you have learned in the  context of progression of data, information, and knowledge. What are the  specific techniques you would consider most helpful in transforming  information into knowledge (as opposed to just translating data into  information)? Support your discussion with relevant examples, research,  and rationale.

The final paragraph (three or four sentences) of your initial  post should summarize the one or two key points that you are making in  your initial response. Submission Details: Your posting should be the equivalent of 1 to 2 single-spaced pages (500–1000 words) in length.100% original no plagiarism
