calculate a payout to the seller based on promotional information that is entered into the tool by the vendor partners.

Agile User Stories:—

Background and Business problem:

Tech Up is a hardware and software reseller. To incentivize their sales reps, they provide incentive payments. They have a third-party group manage the calculation of the incentive payments. Incentives Now is a sales incentive, web-based, portal that Tech Up uses to manage seller promotional goal attainment. The data in the portal is managed by a third party called group.

Every day, Tech Up sends all the sales data to the outside vendor, who takes in the files and spins through their calculation process. They then calculate a payout to the seller based on promotional information that is entered into the tool by the vendor partners.

The main issue is the calculations within the tool do not limit the seller payout with any business rules. For example:

·      Profitability: The tool does not take into consideration whether the product that was sold was sold for a profit or not

·      Revenue Goals: The tool does not take into consideration whether the seller is achieving their revenue goals (i.e. that’s the only thing you sold the entire month)

Business Requirements:

In your role as a Scrum Business Analyst it is your job to write 4 high level user stories that would answer the following questions.

·      At what level profit and revenue attainment would a sales rep be eligible for an incentive.

o  Could a weighted average

o  Could be a certain threshold between the two (profit and revenue)

o  Or focus just on profit or just revenue

·      How will this data be pulled out of the Tech Up sales system and sent to the vendor who determines the incentives.

·      Provide reporting to sales leadership on how many sales rep obtain incentives and why based on the profit and revenue targets.

In order for multinationals to continue expanding their operations, they must be able to attract and retain highly qualified personnel in many countries.

Week Four: Discussion Questions

In order for multinationals to continue expanding their operations, they must be able to attract and retain highly qualified personnel in many countries.  Much of their success in doing this will be tied to the motivational package that they offer, including financial opportunities, benefits and perquisites, meaningful work, and an environment that promotes productivity and worker creativity.

Automotive firms, in particular, are a good example of MNCs that are trying very hard to increase their worldwide market share.  So for them, employee motivation is an area that is getting a lot of attention.

Go to the Web and look at the career opportunities that are currently being offered by Ford Motor (www.ford.com), Volvo (www.volvo.com), and Volkswagen (http://www.vw.com/).  All of these companies provide information about the career opportunities they offer.  Based on this information, respond to the following questions:

1.  What are some of the things that all three firms offer to motivate new employees?

2.  Which of the three has the best motivational package?  Why?

3.  Are there any major differences between Ford and its European rivals?  What conclusion can you draw from this?

In this case, you have wisely decided to add a 10% strategic reserve to the development phase of the project.

Please can I get help with the following.asap

You are a manager with budget authority for a new IT project that is being developed for your department. The project is being developed internally by the company IT staff. You are developing a budget for the project. In this scenario, you will be in integrating information systems and information technology to progress an organization toward their organizational objectives. Consider the information given to determine how much capital you will need to raise to a project successfully. Your goal is determining the budget needed to complete the project within the stated timeline and maintain the system through the full 5-year maintenance contract. Note that the first month of maintenance for the contract starts simultaneously with the start of the project. In this case, you have wisely decided to add a 10% strategic reserve to the development phase of the project.

Given:

● IT Project Timeline: 1 January 2019-31 March 2020

● 3 weeks of holiday time is planned off during this timeline

● Do not forget the concept of a leap year if it is appropriate

● Assume vacation weeks are not paid for the purpose of this problem, as vacation pay is paid and allocated by a separate corporate budget funding source different from the IT Project funding source

● If total weeks are computed as a non-whole number of weeks, round to the nearest week

● Carry out items to the thousands place for fractions (for example 1/3 = 0.333) prior to continuing calculations, then round up or down as needed to whole numbers for final dollar values

● 40-hour work week is the standard contracted work week

● No overtime is allowed to keep costs down

● 10 managers

● 100 programmers and staff

● Manager salary is $50 per hour

● Programmers and staff salary is $35 per hour

● Systems planning cost is $100K

● System development cost is $1.3M

● System fielding cost is $300K

● System maintenance (5-year contract, amortized, payments begin at project start and are paid monthly) = $5.0M

● Strategic reserve, when (if) applied to the timeline, should also be applied to the maintenance costs during the timeframe of the timeline. However, maintenance costs beyond the timeline have been negotiated as a firm fixed price contract and do not require the use of strategic reserve in addition to the negotiated price.

Answer the following questions and show your work:

1. How many work weeks are in the project timeline, where work will actually occur?

2. How much money does the team cost per hour? 3. How much money does the team cost per week?

4. How much money does the team cost for the duration of the IT project?

5. Remembering that maintenance is amortized, that payments begin during the first month of the project, and that all other system costs are assigned to the project, what is the total systems cost through the timeline completion on 31 March 2020?

6. What is the total project cost through completion on 31 March 2020?

7. After project completion on 31 March 2020, what will be the remainder cost for maintenance that will still need to be budgeted and managed?

8. Forecasting a budget with no strategic reserve, what should the project cost per month be for the budget during the project timeline?

9. With the addition of a 10% strategic reserve, what should the project cost per month be for the budget during the project timeline?

10. Considering that you decide to budget using the strategic reserve, and you need to budget for the entire maintenance cost, what is the total amount of capital you will need to raise to complete the project successfully during the timeline and then maintain the system through the full 5-year maintenance contract, noting that the first month of maintenance for the contract starts simultaneously with the start of the project?

If you do not ship these parts by the deadline, your company will lose this major client, and this will most certainly result in layoffs at your plant.

Manager’s Ethical Dilemma

You are the manager of a factory of the Make-It Company. You have 5,000 parts that must be shipped by Friday at 5:00 p.m. Things have been on schedule, but you have just been alerted that 2,000 of the parts already produced are faulty. This means, even with overtime, you won’t meet your goal.

If you do not ship these parts by the deadline, your company will lose this major client, and this will most certainly result in layoffs at your plant.

What do you do? Fully explain the rationale for your decision.

Assume you were the recipient of a large inheritance from a trust fund set up by your rich uncle.

Assume you were the recipient of a large inheritance from a trust fund set up by your rich uncle. The trust documents provided you with a choice of how you wanted your benefits paid out. You could either choose to receive a one-time payment of $2 million or a series of 20 annual payments of $165,000 each which cannot be transferred to another person upon your death if you were to die before the 20 years expired. Which would you choose and why?

Don’t forget to consider things like the time value of money, your expected life span, fluctuating interest rates, investment risk and return, personal spending and saving patterns, etc.
