Assignment Details
Projects of all sizes may seem daunting at first. Breaking the project down into smaller, more manageable pieces allows you to develop an achievable plan for completing the project. The work breakdown structure (WBS) is one of the tools that you can use to outline your project into smaller, more manageable pieces called work packages.
Refer to Case 4.1 of your text. In this case, Brandon has been chosen to chair the 5K charity run for his fraternity, and you are presented with the details of this project. In a 5-page report, you should address the following:
How would developing a WBS help to alleviate Brandon’s problems during the initial meeting? How can the WBS be used to organize and plan the project?
Describe the process for creating the WBS.
Create a list of the major deliverables for this project, and use them to develop a draft WBS with at least 3 levels of detail.
Are there any interdependencies that need to be considered and, if so, which ones?
Assign cost and activity durations to the work packages (these may be made up).
Use either a top-down or a bottom-up approach to determine the overall cost of the project and discuss the approach used.
Be sure to cite your sources using APA; include your references and in-text citations.
Use this template to complete this assignment.
Submitting your assignment in APA format means, at a minimum, you will need the following:
Title page: The title should be in all capitals.
Length: 5 pages minimum
Body: This begins on the page following the title page and abstract page and must be double-spaced (be careful not to triple- or quadruple-space between paragraphs). The typeface should be 12-pt. Times Roman or 12-pt. Courier in regular black type. Do not use color, bold type, or italics, except as required for APA-level headings and references. The deliverable length of the body of your paper for this assignment is 5 pages. In-body academic citations to support your decisions and analysis are required. A variety of academic sources is encouraged.
Reference page: References that align with your in-body academic sources are listed on the final page of your paper. The references must be in APA format using appropriate spacing, hanging indent, italics, and uppercase and lowercase usage as appropriate for the type of resource used. Remember, the Reference page is not a bibliography but a further listing of the abbreviated in-body citations used in the paper. Every referenced item must have a corresponding in-body citation.

Assignment Details
Discrimination is the act of making unjustified distinctions between human beings based on the groups, classes, or other categories to which they are perceived to belong. Discrimination can occur while you are at school, at work, or in a public place (such as a mall or subway station). You can be discriminated against by friends, teachers, coaches, coworkers, managers, or business owners.
Describe a time in your life where you witnessed discrimination in the workplace (or outside the workplace) and how it could have been prevented.
Review and consider the experiences presented by others. Share your thoughts on the responses of other students. In your replies to others, share similar experiences you have had in witnessing discrimination. You can also share your thoughts on how the discrimination others have experienced could have been prevented.

Complete the assignment posted by your instructor.
One of the big topics in this lesson is diversity and the benefits of diversity: In addition to benefits, there may be deficits. In this lesson we look at both. Again we look at the ethical considerations, not the practicalities or admission of the program.
Here is a truncated example of the assignment. Your response should be longer and address multiple issues. 
Sample Vignette: 
1. Employee Anderson complains that setting aside a room for Muslim  employees to use for prayer is fine, but excusing them several times a day is unfair, as other employees don’t get those extra breaks. Sounds like discrimination to me. 
2. Email to Anderson, ” Thank you etc….Our intention is to respect the religious preference of all staff, and to afford them a workplace which supports the whole person, including their spiritual preferences. It is our intention to accommodate all employee’s needs as much as we can and as mandated by law. We will be happy to look into this matter and get back to yo within 30 days” (Issues include equity, diversity, freedom of religion, reasonable accommodation, parity, equal pay for equal work, contractual obligations, undue burden, diversity in hiring)  
Email to HR. “Dear..etc, please review the pattern of breaks used by the staff mentioned and ensure they do not exceed two fifteen minute breaks, and a 30 minute lunch, or ask the employees to adjust their start or end times to  ensure they have 8 hours work between 7:00AM and 6:00PM. The issue is both religious freedom and equity. The Muslim staff should be free to worship, but that cannot have the same pay for fewer work hours. They can take, for example a ten minute prayer break, but then have only 5 minutes left of their 15 minute break. They need to have breaks at certain times which can be checked, but cannot be spied on, because they do not have to pray and have the right to privacy. Other staff must have the same amount of time on and off the job.
1. Read all three vignettes and select ONEof these three vignettes and write two  emails, and a list of issues involved.
2. Your first is to the complaining employee, ad dressing the complaint and (after the email)explaining the ethical rationale behind it. You do not need to use the term “ethics”. Follow up with a list of the ethical issues involved. 
3. Your second email to to the HR department addressing any ethical concerns that the disgruntled employee made you think of. 
Vignette 1: Employee Lloyd writes” I need to know why 32 the male officers in this department had to give up half their breakroom to this new “lactation room” when there are only 5 women. They can use our breakroom, but we cannot use that room even if it is empty. Sounds like discrimination to me.” 
Vignette 2. Employee Jones writes, ” Can you stop the employees chattering all day in Tagalog and Spanish. They all can speak English but they keep lapsing into their own lingo and I don’t understand it. I know they’re not talking about me, they use a few English words, but is annoying and excludes us Americans. Sounds like discrimination to me..”
Vignette 3. Employee Jim VanderBoom writes” Can we stop hiring immigrants? When I got here the workforce was all locals and we had a lot in common, we even had American food choices in the canteen. Now we are hiring people from all over, offering all sorts of smelly food, even “vegan meat”! And none of them know anything about our culture or show any interest. I’m increasingly a minority in my own country. Sounds like discrimination to me.”

Define the most important capital budgeting techniques. Name at least two capita

Define the most important capital budgeting techniques. Name at least two capital budgeting techniques (for example, NPV, IRR, Payback Period, et cetera) and describe how they are used to arrive at investment decisions.
from professor:
This week’s discussion question looks at capital budgeting and risk analysis. I always say that perception is everything as many of you will take this question in different concepts. Why is capital budgeting important?
 
I have to say that NPV and the Payback Period have been the most important for me. This is because knowing the present value makes a difference as a dollar today is worth more than a dollar tomorrow. I tend to invest when small business owners are trying to get their business off the ground. The payback period is essential as the longer you go without getting paid the more risk you are taking as you are most likely not going to get paid if the time frame is too long. Not to mention the longer you take to get paid the more money you are actually losing. I am curious to know how many of you are investors? How much of a risk-taker are you? For those that do not invest or that are not really risk-takers, there are apps that will help you that I can recommend.
Here is a visual of the techniques that we shall discuss.
