  1. 1. Write short notes on:

 

  1. Tracy-wiersema model:

 

The Treacy&Wiersema Value-Discipline Model was first published in the ground-breaking Harvard Business Review article “Customer Intimacy and Other Value Disciplines,”  (c. 1993) and was expanded in a book, “The Discipline of Market Leaders” in 1995. The Value-Discipline Model is a strategic tool that helps enterprises establish what they want their customers to value them for.

 

 

  1. Central limit theorem:

 

In probability theory, the central limit theorem (CLT) states that, given certain conditions, the arithmetic mean of a sufficiently large number of iterates of independent random variables, each with a well-defined expected value and well-defined variance, will be approximately normally distributed, regardless of the underlying distribution. That is, suppose that a sample is obtained containing a large number of observations, each observation being randomly generated in a way that does not depend on the

 

 

 

 

  1. 2. What is parametric estimating? Explain the steps involved in the development of a parametric model.

 

Answer:An estimating technique that uses a statistical relationship between historical data and other variables (for example, square footage in construction, lines of code in software development) to calculate an estimate for activity parameters, such as scope, cost, budget, and duration. This technique can produce higher levels of

 

 

 

  1. 3. 1. What aspects of capital budgeting must be considered while selecting a project?

 

  1. Suppose an investment requires an initial outlay of $5 million and has expected the cash flow of $1 million, $3.5 million, and $2 million for the first three years.

 

  1. Calculate:

The net present value using a 10% required rate of return

Profitability Index using a 10% required rate of return

 

  1. Also suggest if the project must be accepted.

 

  1. 1. Capital budgeting, or investment appraisal, is the planning process used to determine whether an organization’s long term investments such as new machinery, replacement machinery, new plants, new products, and research development projects are worth the funding of cash through the firm’s capitalization structure (debt, equity or retained earnings). It is the process of allocating resources for major

 

 

 

 

  1. 2. A.The importance of NPV becomes clear in this instance. Although the incoming cash flows (10,000 x 12 = 120,000) appear to exceed the outgoing cash flow (100,000), the future cash flows are not adjusted using the discount rate. Thus, the project appears misleadingly profitable. When the cash flows are discounted however, it indicates the project would result in a net loss of 31,863.08. Thus, the NPV calculation indicates that this project should be disregarded because investing in this project is the equivalent of a loss of 31,863.08 at t = 0. The concept of time value of money indicates that cash flows in

 

 

 

  1. 2. B.

NPV is an indicator of how much value an investment or project adds to the firm. With a particular project, if R_t is a positive value, the project is in the status of positive cash inflow in the time of t. If R_t is a negative value,

 

 

 

 

  1. 4. Explain the various expense items in a project.

 

Answer:At some point in your organization, your plan for your future will include a look at your income and expenses. You may find jotting a budget easy. Others prefer never to have to look at the budget  part of their activities and rely on their fiscal department or someone else to take care of all “that money stuff.” If you are one of the

 

 

 

 

  1. 5. What are the major steps in time management process? What is rolling wave planning?

 

Answer:Time Management is actually quite simple to understand. It’s also easy to do. The key, as for every technique I recommend in The Lifelong Activist, is to take things slow and easy, and to aim for only a small amount of positive change at a time. That way, the process itself remains unthreatening, and so you’ll be less likely to abandon it.

 

 

 

 

  1. 6. What are the steps that should be followed to construct a “house of quality”?

 

Answer:The House of Quality (HOQ) is the first matrix that a product development team uses to initiate a Quality Function Deployment (QFD) process. This matrix is especially powerful because of the amount of information that can be documented and analyzed.  QFD methodology requires that the team ask specific questions about customer needs, competitors, and how their organization will meet the challenges of providing products that delight

Q: 3 a. Explain about the concept of strategic planning

 

Answer: A systematic process of envisioning a desired future, and translating this vision into broadly defined goals or objectives and a sequence of steps to achieve them.

In contrast to long-term planning (which begins with the current status and lays down a path to meet estimated future needs), strategic planning begins with the desired-end and works backward to the current status. Strategic planning involves clearly defining the organization’s mission and an assessment of its current state and competitive landscape.
