The discussion this week will focus on companies that have to frequently cut the budget. With this process, many companies are in a scenario where they are forced to choose to fully fund some capital projects while leaving others to be completed at a later date, or not at all. There can be no correct answer at the corporate level when this process takes place because some projects will be unable to be done. How do you feel in regards to cost behavior and the evaluation of various projects in the corporate world of budgeting?
The intent of the Discussion Forum is for the students to engage in the readings with one another. Please note that this activity is interactive.
All postings must be made between Monday and Sunday. You will receive a zero for late posts.
The initial post is due by Wednesday. Initial posts are expected to illustrate your understanding of the learning materials assigned for that module. Initial posts must contain references to the textbook, articles, and other peer-reviewed resources to support your answer.
Two replies (minimum) are due by Sunday. One-liners will not be accepted, that is, it is not sufficient to write that you agree or disagree with someone’s argument or like their comments. Provide a rationale for your arguments, be thoughtful when responding, integrate the textbook and related articles (the readings) for support, and allow me to hear your respective voice in the discussion format.
Grading is based on timely and frequent participation, as well as the quality of your responses/comments critique.
