SCENARIO CONTINUATION: SLP2 – It’s New Year’s day, 2016. You just had a great New Year’s Eve celebration. You have finished analyzing the performance of Clipboard Tablet Co. in a great report that you turned in a few days early to Sally Smothers. Now you are ready to charge ahead into the future. As you turn on the TV and try to open your eyes, you notice something strange. The TV commentator is saying something about New Year’s Day, 2012. You are now wide awake and listen more carefully. Yes, she said 2012. But that can’t be. You look around and everything looks different. Yes, it’s true; it’s New Year’s Day, 2012. Time has rewound – a Time Warp, like the guy in the movie “It’s Groundhog Day.” You realize that you get to make the decisions for Clipboard Tablet Co. starting with 2012. Perhaps you can do better than Joe Schmoe. You decide to determine the prices and R&D allocations and whether to discontinue any products over the next four years: 2012 – 2015. At the beginning of each year, you will determine your pricing, your R&D allocations, and if you want to discontinue any products. You make your decisions and time advances to the end of that year. You look at the results and see what happened. You keep track of your decisions and make notes about your reasoning and analysis of the data. You collect and keep the data for later analysis. You run the Marketing of Clipboard Tablet Co. through the end of 2015. It is now 12/31/2015, New Year’s Eve. What is your total Score? Did you do better than Joe Schmoe? You decide to organize your notes about your decisions, your analysis, and your reasoning into a report, which you think will help you move ahead into 2016 (finally!!, you get to move ahead into 2016 – weren’t you at this point in time once before??) ASSIGNMENT Run the Clipboard Tablet Co. simulation with your strategy, making decisions year by year for prices and R&D allocations. http://forio.com/simulate/jelson/tablet­development­sim­1/simulation/ Please turn in a 4 to 6 page paper, not including cover and reference page, in which you: Write a report that shows your decisions and the results. Discuss why you did better or worse than Joe Schmoe. KEYS TO THE ASSIGNMENT The key aspects of this assignment that should be covered and taken into account in preparing your paper include: As you run the simulation keep track of your decisions and keep track of the results ­ both financial and marketing. You can copy and paste the results into Excel or into a Word document. You can also record the information that you get from the Advisor who discusses the market and compares Clipboard Tablet Co. products to the competition. Make note of the Final Total Score. You should include your Final Total Score, some tables and/or graphs showing some of the results. Be sure to explain the differences clearly and using good logic. Remember that the key here is ANALYSIS. Time Line Summary: SLP1 2015: 12/15 hired. 12/30 turned in first report to Sally a few days early. 12/31 – celebrated SLP2 Time Warp begins: 1/1/2016 WARPS INTO 1/1/2012 You freak out, and then realize you have to make decisions for 2012 – 2015. 1/2/2012 input decisions for 2012 1/2/2013 input decisions for 2013 1/2/2014 input decisions for 2014 1/2/2015 input decisions for 2015 12/31/2015 – you have gone through all four years, and you write your report to summarize how you did. You are hoping that you will wake up tomorrow and it will be 2016.

BUSSLP3 BACKGROUND In Module 3, you will continue with the scenario and simulation you worked on in the Module 1 and Module 2 SLPs. REQUIRED READING SCENARIO CONTINUATION: It’s New Year’s Day, 2016. You just had a great New Year’s Eve celebration; you finished analyzing the performance of Clipboard Tablet Company and are ready to charge ahead into the future. As you turn on the TV and try to open your eyes, you notice something strange (again). The TV commentator is saying something about New Year’s Day, 2012. You have a sinking feeling, and sure enough, it’s back to 1/1/2012. You realize that you are in Time Warp 2. This time you decide to do your decision making differently. You are going to use a technique that you became familiar with last year, CVP analysis. And you are going to decide all of your decisions at once. No feeling your way through it this time. You are going to make all of your decisions now, for the next four years and just cruise through it this time. You analyze the results of your first set of decisions that you made in Time Warp 1, from 2012 to 2015. You have the data, you kept it all. But now you are going to use CVP analysis to help you determine your new strategy. And you have a tool to use, the CVP Calculator. You analyze the results using CVP and develop your complete four year strategy. You decide to make notes about your analysis and your reasoning process; just in case you have to do this again (You are praying that you can finally move ahead this time when you get to 2016.) You finish your report that shows your strategy that you are going to use these next four years during Time Warp 2. And stop and take a big breath before you move ahead into 2012. (In other words – don’t run the simulation, yet. Just turn in this report.) ASSIGNMENT Please turn in a 4 to 6 page paper, not including cover and reference page, in which, after again reviewing and analyzing the results that you got in SLP2 (Time Warp 1 decisions), you develop a revised strategy and make a case for this new strategy using analysis and relevant theories. KEYS TO THE ASSIGNMENT The key aspects of this assignment that should be covered and taken into account in preparing your paper include: The revised strategy consists of the Prices, R&D Allocation %, and any product discontinuations for the X5, X6, and X7 tablets for each of the four years: 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015. You must present a rational justification for this strategy. In other words, you must Make a Case for your proposed strategy using financial analysis and relevant theories. Use the CVP Calculator and review the PowerPoint that explains CVP and provides some examples. You need to CRUNCH some numbers (CVP Analysis) to help you determine your prices and R&D allocations. Make sure your proposed changes in strategy are firmly based in this analysis of financial and market data and sound business principles. Present your analysis professionally making strategic use of tables, charts and graphs.

You are hoping that you will wake up tomorrow and it will be 2016. SLP3 Time Warp 2 begins: 1/1/2016 WARPS INTO 1/1/2012 (Again) Now its 1/1/2012: you decide to use CVP analysis and develop a four year plan for your strategy.

BUSSLP4 BACKGROUND In Module 4, you will continue with the scenario and simulation you worked on in the Module 1, Module 2, and Module 3 SLPs. REQUIRED READING SCENARIO CONTINUATION: It is now 1/2/2012 (again), still at the beginning of Time Warp 2. You have just completed your revised strategy using CVP analysis, and you are ready to charge ahead. You implement your decisions for 2012 and time flows by quickly. You see the results at the end of the year and you collect these results to use later. Again, you implement your decisions that you have already made for 2013 and collect the results at the end of the year. You do the same for 2014 and 2015, hoping this time that you can finally move ahead into 2016. It is now New Year’s Eve, 2015, what you hope is the end of Time Warp 2 and more than that, what you hope is the end of the time warps altogether. You have the results of your decisions. How did you do? What was your final score? You are ready to celebrate. You want to celebrate hard and forget this crazy time warp stuff. Will it finally be 2016 when you wake up? It’s New Year’s day, 2016. You just had a great New Year’s Eve celebration, you finished another four years of moving Clipboard Tablet Company through 2012 – 2015, and are ready to charge ahead into the future.

You have a sinking feeling, and sure enough, it’s back to 1/1/2012. You groan and curse. When will this time warp end? You are now in Time Warp 3. Maybe you need to keep improving Clipboard Tablet’s performance so that you can finally move ahead. You vow to do better this time. And you think your best approach is to develop your four year strategy like you did the last time. You analyze the results of your last set of decisions from 2012 to 2015. You have the data, you kept it all. And you are going to use CVP analysis again to help you determine your new strategy. And you have a tool to use, the CVP Calculator. You are going to get better at it. You analyze the results from Time Warp 2 using CVP and develop your complete four year strategy. You decide to make notes about your analysis and your reasoning process, just in case you have to do this again (You are praying that you can finally move ahead this time when you get to 2016.) You finish your report that shows the strategy that you are going to use these next four years, Time Warp 3. And you stop and take a big breath before you move ahead into 2012. (In other words – don’t run this strategy in the simulation, yet. Just turn in this report.) ASSIGNMENT Run the simulation with the Strategy that you developed in SLP3 for Time Warp2. http://forio.com/simulate/jelson/tablet­development­sim­1/simulation/ Review and analyze these results (Time Warp 2 decisions) and develop a revised strategy for Time Warp 3. Make a case for this new strategy using analysis and relevant theories. Please turn in a 4 to 6 page paper, not including cover and reference page.

You must present a rational justification for this strategy. In other words, you must Make a Case

for your proposed strategy using financial analysis and relevant theories.

Use the CVP Calculator and review the PowerPoint that explains CVP and provides some

examples.

You need to CRUNCH some numbers (CVP Analysis) to help you determine your prices and

R&D allocations.

Make sure your proposed changes in strategy are firmly based in this analysis of financial and

market data and sound business principles.Your goal is to practice using CVP and get better

at it.

Present your analysis professionally making strategic use of tables, charts and graphs.
