1) Please elaborate on the attached performance report by preparing a presentation to “management” which incorporates the information presented in the performance report. Present this information in such a way that it is meaningful to each manager responsible for specific areas of performance. Graphic illustrations are a good way to do this. This can be presented as a PowerPoint presentation to management or in a written report – whichever you feel is more effective. POWERPOINT IS PREFERRED BUT NOT REQUIRED
2) Present 5 years of historical information using at least 3 graphs for years 2007 – 2011. MAKE UP THE HISTORICAL NUMBERS
3) Present next year’s budget (2009) for sales, manufacturing and SG&A based on your recommendations in the management report and with the understanding that budgeted net income must be at least $300,000 before income taxes. This does not mean you have to recreate the budget again but present the “final product” to each department so that they see how their function is crucial to reaching the goal set by the company. Your report will need to focus on the total costs of each department and how those costs are used in calculating net income. Departments include Administration, Accounting, Marketing, Operations, Sales
This assignment is meant to take the information from the budget project and put it into a format that management and other non-accountants can understand. Use whatever format, graphs, etc. that you feel are appropriate. MAKE UP THE HISTORICAL NUMBERS FOR 2007-2011. Sole for the desired sales number using the contribution approach to get net income of $300,000, but first you must decide on the sale price, variable and fixed costs expected next year – based on your recommendations to management at 12/31/08.
Use your accounting but more importantly, your management knowledge to be a key player on the management team
