Y​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ou have completed three runs of the simulation in which you made several decisions for a family business. This provided you with the unique opportunity to observe how each decision can impact a company in the real world.
Now, as we reach the end of this course, reflect on your experience in the simulation and consider how your decisions affected the company’s position in the industry. In your initial post, address the following:
How did your company do at the end of the first time you completed the simulation compared with at your last run-through?
How did the company’s growth change over the course of the three run-throughs?
Which of your decisions do you think affected the company and its growth more than others?
Were these decisions made with the family in mind? Explain why or why not.
Which decisions served your company well and how?
Are there any decisions or actions you would take differently now that you know more about how they affect a business? Explain why or why not.

F​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ocus
Competencies
In this project, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following competencies:
Determine how an organization gains a competitive advantage
Determine organizational risk and growth opportunities in order to develop a strategic plan
Defend business decisions in support of an organization’s strategic plan
Scenario
It’s the moment of truth: your opportunity to demonstrate why your new product or service is worth funding. You have done the research and know that the funding you seek can be a game changer for the company. Not only will it produce revenue and profitability, but more importantly, it will strategically set the company apart from its competition.
You just have to convince senior management.
In preparation, you have created a checklist for yourself to use in compiling information that includes research, feasibility of the idea via the BMC, scope of project (timeline included), project risk mitigation, DEI, CSR, and 24-month pro forma.
You know that anything can happen in a funding pitch. With this in mind, you are prepared to answer questions that encompass all aspects of the project.
Directions
Create a pitch for funding. In this pitch, you will have to convince senior management to greenlight the new product or service. Aspects of the pitch that must be addressed:
Value proposition: Describe the company’s current value proposition in the market.
Describe the selected company’s main product or service.
Discuss the company’s overall strategic plan.
Competitive advantage: Describe the competitive advantage the company will gain by funding the project.
Describe how you discovered an opportunity to do something better than your competitors.
Determine how the new product or service shifts the value proposition of the company.
Risks and opportunities: Establish the risks and growth opportunities of the company.
Determine if the new product or service could disrupt the current industry.
Identify the risks associated with the development of this new product or service.
Growth opportunities: Describe the areas of potential growth for the company.
Identify the growth opportunities within the company.
Explain how the competitive advantage allows for growth.
Distinguish as a new product or innovation: Distinguish the new product/service as an innovation or improvement on an existing product/service.
Determine if the product or service fits within the capabilities of the company.
Note: a company’s SWOT analysis or 10-K is an indicator of whether the new product or service could be feasible.
Explain how the new product or service adds to the portfolio of the company.
Target segment: Describe the targeted segment.
Identify the target customer.
Explain your blue ocean strategy.
Note: The new market is identified here.
Speculate sales: Speculate on the projected sales.
Justify your product or service by the numbers; discuss your projected revenue gain.
Note: it MUST have an ROI that justifies the project for investors and/or senior management.
Explain the risks associated with projected sales.
Speculate profitability: Speculate on the profitability of your proposed product or service.
Determine if the project is profitable.
Note: In this pitch for funding, senior management has to know that the project, based on market research, is speculated to be profitable. Use the company’s current income statement to project how the company’s profitability will be affected. Look to other companies in the marketplace with products or services similar to the one you are proposing as a basis for your projections. Note: these numbers are purely speculative.
Determine the impact on the functional areas of the business (accounting, marketing, sales, and so on).
CSR plan: Outline the plan to service the community or customers that purchase the product or service.
Discuss how the idea demonstrates corporate social responsibility (CSR).
Identify what the company has invested in as it relates to the communities they serve.
Discuss how a good CSR plan helps the company gain competitive advantage.
DEI plan: Summarize how the project will include a variety of perspectives to get a better unique value proposition.
Determine if the company has a corporate culture built on DEI.
Discuss how the project’s DEI plan fits into the company’s overall strategic plan.

S​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​cenario
The funding pitch went extremely well, and you just received word that your idea for the new product/service has been approved. In fact, senior management sent a memo, company-wide, announcing the project.
One line in the memo really caught your attention: “We are eager to see the project to completion and the many other product offerings to come from this initiative.”
You reach out to the project manager (PM) and are told that, typically, senior management expects to see product/service extensions or some type of next steps stemming from an original product. This could include different versions of the product/service, such as cheaper or premium versions, new targeted customers, and more. The PM also adds that senior management will look for contingency planning to protect the funding for the project.
Prompt
For your business continuity plan, consider your next steps, including project improvements and how to mitigate risk to the project to protect the product investment. To accomplish this, you must leverage employee and customer feedback on the new product/service. Additionally, research the market and use a PESTLE analysis to examine if any external factor could affect your new product offering.
Specifically, your plan must address the following criteria:
Business continuity plan: Outline a basic business continuity plan for your business that identifies key business areas and critical functions as well as identifies at least one measure for recovering or maintaining critical business operations in case of an emergency. Include how you will ensure that this plan is followed.
Post-launch stage: Propose new ideas for the post-launch stage, including one idea for a product/service improvement you plan to implement after the initial launch, and one idea for increasing your customer base or engagement after the initial launch.
Feedback loops: Explain how you will implement feedback loops for your product or service.
PESTLE analysis: Use PESTLE analysis to identify at least one external risk factor that may affect the project. Then provide a solution or contingency plan for mitigating that risk.
Guidelines for Submission
Submission must be a 1- to 2-page Word document. Any sources cited should use APA formatting.

P​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ay-for-performance (PFP) continues to be a topic of debat

P​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​ay-for-performance (PFP) continues to be a topic of debate. In America’s public school and health care systems, PFP is controversial issue. In some cases, such as law enforcement and the military, there is a belief such a system would not work at all.
Although the process has made inroads in business and is a means to help determine promotions, pay, and retention, pay for performance has not been consistently well received despite the successes experienced.
You have been asked by the organization’s senior leadership to explore the practicality of implementing a pay for performance program for your organization (i.e., merit pay, variable pay, discretionary bonuses, and non-discretionary bonuses) or one you are interested in working with. Before providing your summary and recommendations, you will want to include the following points:
A brief background of the organization and industry.
Identify a​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​nd discuss which, if not all, PFP plans you will be considering.
How the organization measure the effectiveness of the plan.
Employees’ perspective – advantages and disadvantages of PFP.
Employer’s perspective – advantages and disadvantages of PFP
Include any additional information that will support your position and recommendation; do not limit yourself to these points.
Note: If you determine that PFP would not work for the organization, please make sure you the information you provide justifies your recommendation.
Additional Guidance:
Your paper should be a minimum of five (5) full pages of double-spaced content in 12-point font. This excludes your title page and reference pages. An abstract is not required.
Include a properly formatted APA cover page, a properly formatted Introduction and Conclusion, and a minimum of 5 references to support your work, and 3 of those 5 need to be peer-r​‌‍‍‍‌‍‌‍‍‍‌‌‌‍‌‌‌‌‌‌​eviewed
