...Introduction and Overview It is difficult to find an example of a more spectacular business failure than the recent collapse of Arthur Andersen. Within a few years, Andersen moved from one of the largest professional service organizations in the world to almost complete collapse. The impact of the firm’s failure on its employees, customers, investors, and the general public is hard to overstate. The once proud reputation had been reduced to shambles. Even the President of the United States joked: “We just received a message from Saddam Hussein. The good news is that he’s willing to have his nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons counted. The bad news is he wants Arthur Andersen to do it. ” The dramatic demise of Andersen (along with the failures of companies such as Enron and Global Crossing) has raised concerns among managers throughout the world. They want to understand what caused the collapse of the company so that they can take actions to avoid similar fates. Over the years, Andersen’s business environment and strategy changed in material ways. Their management responded by making associated changes in their organizational architecture (decision right, performance evaluation and reward systems). Part 3 of this book has argued that ill designed organizational architectures can result in poor performance and even company failure. An important question is whether Andersen’s failure can be traced to inappropriate organizational choices. An even more......

...Creative Image Group Infrastructure Upgrade Information Systems Capstone Dr. Richard Borroughs April 21, 2013 History of Creative Image Group The concept of Creative Image Group began in 1992 while two friends were attending college. One was majoring in business with a focus on marketing and advertising; the other sought a degree in graphic design technology. The graphic designer was learning how to take an art form that was originally done with paper, pens, acetate, tape and glue and apply those same skills using computerized graphics, layers, vectors and pixels. Business work such as accounting, proposals, estimates, invoices and contracts was performed on an IBM compatible machine while all the graphic and design work was performed on a Mac LC II. Internal communications were executed using a 9600 baud modem system. External communications were performed through U.S. mail, telephone calls and a relatively new technology called facsimile transmissions (fax). Primary project output consisted of creating marketing and advertising materials such as logos, corporate branding materials, advertisements and other promotional print driven materials. Like many partnerships, Creative Image owners eventually dissolved the working relationship to pursue other ventures; however the business license was retained for 20 years in order to continue to allow freelance work by the artist. In 2011, the designer re-entered college to support 20 years of......

SWOT analyses are important in any business to evaluate their business structures and how to grow by analyzing their strengths, identifying the weaknesses to improve on, opportunities to grow by identifying the strengths and weaknesses, and also to know the threats to the business.

...Capstone Rehearsal Guidelines (Revised 9-27-14) Overview The Capstone Rehearsal is an individual simulation that enables students to compete against computer competitors as a means to sharpen their decision making skills and knowledge of the Capstone simulation. It should be noted that the Rehearsal simulation does not include the optional TQM module that is being used in this course. This is because instructors are not given the option to include TQM functions in the rehearsal simulation.

Please note, the way the user screens for the tutorial and rehearsal may appear slightly differently depending on whether you are using the legacy view or the Beta view of Capstone.
