In the case of Ace Fertilizer Company, Assistant Director of Manufacturing , Abby Conroy is faced with an ethical issue that was presented to her by boss George Smilee who is the Director of Manufacturing. Ace Fertilizer’s business is to produce lawn & gardening fertilizer, and the company is known for delivering the highest quality special order products. The fact that they can deliver on time with top quality is what helps to drive their business. They use a consistent mark up on special orders at an 80% mark up over the cost of the orders. Abby prefers to allocate indirect cost using activity-based costing for these orders, but recognizes that not all costs are driven by volume of output. Abby prepares a
We’ll start with the use of sales representatives and how this relates to potential tax liability. P.L. 86-272 allows the use of sales representatives relating to interstate commerce without generating any net income tax related to tangible personal property within certain restrictions. For the sale to be protected under P.L. 86-272, the work of the sales representatives must be limited to solicitation- a mere “implicit invitation to an order” or “activities that are entirely ancillary to request for an order”. In Wisconsin Department of Revenue V. William Wrigley Jr. Co., the United States Supreme Court emphasized the nature of activities that would be considered ancillary under P.L. 86-272, “Solicitation of orders covers only the actual requests for purchases, or, at most, the actions absolutely essential to making those requests”. The operations of your sales force seem to be following this model where 1) they do not have the authority to accept any orders, and 2) they send the orders back to Ely, MN for them to be accepted and shipped. By adhering to the standard that the US Supreme court set, the

What decision-making methods were utilized in the case? According to Charles E. Lindblom, there are two types of decision-making methods: the root method and the branch method. The root method, which he also calls he rational-comprehensive method, is an approach to decision-making where an individual chooses an objective and ranks all the relevant values in obtaining the objective. The person making the decision must “formulate many possible alternatives to achieve the stated objective.” This type of method is heavily based upon theory. In addition, the second type of method Linblom talked about is the branch method, which he also called the successive limited comparisons method. This method involves the decision-maker selecting “among the

Candidate Shealy was able to brief an almost complete five paragraph order with a calm and confident delivery. SNC did not brief admin and logistics or command and signal but briefed all other paragraphs. During the briefing, he made eye contact with his fire team and had grabbed each member while tasking them to ensure they knew he was addressing them directly and also oriented them to the problem by showing it to them during the brief. The quick transition from the brief to execution demonstrated the clarity and quality of SNC’s briefing. While negotiating the obstacles, SNC continuously requested feedback from his fire team members and included them in his next decision. SNC did continuously ask his team members if they were "feeling safe"

Hood could improve communication by communicating. I know it sounds strange, but I did not find many details about his communication skills and I see where that would be a serious issue for the crew. If you cannot talk with your crew from time to time, or even be available for them should they need something, that would make a world of difference. Personally, I believe an open line of communication is key to a great environment. If the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing, there is bound to be trouble brewing.
According to Simkins (2005), leadership is one of the key factors and in some instances the only factor that determines whether an organization succeeds or fails. However, Clark (2009) states that an effective nurse leader utilizes appropriate leadership theories to guide their actions as well as they are required to apply their knowledge and problem solving skills to develop creative solutions to managerial issues on the ward. On the other hand, management is concerned with its five core principles; according to Kannan (2004b) these principles were revised and are now thought as planning, organising, staffing, directing and controlling (as cited in Clark, 2009). Furthermore, Clark pointed out that leadership and management often overlap
