Recent developments in management accounting
May 28, 2013
what are the three recent developments in management accounting to today business environment?
Omisakin - Cameroon (23729)
Management accounting developments include:
-- Looking toward the future instead of using old techniques
-- Based on abstract financial models instead of case studies
-- Designed and intended for use by managers within the organization, instead of being intended for use by shareholders, creditors, and public regulators
-- Confidential and used by management, as opposed to public
-- Uses management information systems, instead of referring to financial accounting standards
I hope that helps.
Resource for business financing
April 19, 2013
Subject: about the score.org resource
I was doing some research, and noticed that you list SCORE.org along with a few other great sites on: www.school-for-champions.com/business/resources.htm.
Honestly, thank you for mentioning them. I really can't say enough positive things about what they do.
It may be worthwhile to mention BusinessFinancing.org either above or below them. In my experience, many entrepreneurs are looking at financing options, while most sites offering information are just looking to turn them into clients.
This way you can point visitors somewhere without having to trust a commercial site.
Thank you again, and keep up the great work.

How is business ethics important?
March 5, 2013
I want to know how hard work done in business ethics, and how business ethics serve business?
Nabila - Tunisia (23519)
Business ethics concerns being honest and fair with customers and even workers. It is part of having good character. See: Character in Business as well as Character Important for Success of Business for information of the important of ethics and character.
Hard work is a positive character trait that can bring results. An ethical business will often get more customers than one that is not eithical or honest.
What is the best business strategy?
February 16, 2013
I want to know information about the countries which are used the predatory competition, and what is the best model competition(performance competition, head to head competition, and predatory competition), which we can use in our business in order to operate business.
Nabila - Tunisia (23205)
In some countries, the government controls business and acts to prevent small businesses from succeeding.
If you are not in such a situation, the best business strategy is to concentrate on satisfying your customers with good products and services. However, you need to be aware of who your competition is and what advantages and disadvantages they have. Ideally, you do not want a head-to-head competition where you are both selling similar products. Neither company will do as well in such a situation.
What you want is to carve out a niche or product that is enough different than others, such that you are then known for a superior product in that area. For example, if you are selling power tools, it is best to be know for a certain type and features. This is better than going head-to-head with a number of products similar to your competition.
In the case of some large company or even criminal group trying to squeeze you out of business, it is a difficult problem that you hope will not happen.
How is competiton used in business?
February 13, 2013
I want to understand how companies practice these models of competition as performance competition, head to head competition and predatory competition in order to gain the upper hand and succeed?
Thak you for your time,
nabila - Tunisia (23200)
In a performance competition, a company may only have partial information on its competitors. A good example is an online business, where there may be many similar businesses but little is known about them. In such a case, the company must concentrate on doing the best job they can in quality, pricing, and marketing with out worrying about the competition.
Two or three companies selling similar products are in head-to-head competition. The automobile industry is a good example. Information about what the competition is doing is essential in getting the upper hand.
A predatory business competition is when one--usually much larger--company attacks and tries to push the smaller competition out of business.
Running a small public company
October 27, 2012
Three members of a small public company, thinking that their small shareholding were not worth keeping, sold them to a director, and the transfers were duly registered. Five months letter the secretary realized that the membership of the company has been reduced to five.
A) What has been contravened and what are the possible consequences?
B) Is any relief available?
C) Suggest two ways of avoiding the consequences above.
D) Will the situation be the same if it were a private company? Explain
David - Ghana (23004)
According to the local laws, there must be a certain number of members in a public company. Realizing the mistake, the director would have to sell back (or even give) the shares such that there are a minimum number of members.
If the mistake is promptly corrected, it is unlikely any action would be made against the company.
At the very least, the director of the public company should be well-versed in the laws concerning running his business.
The laws for a private company may be different, and again the leadership must know the laws.

Planning an engineering company
April 9, 2012
what aspects would an engineering company would consider when planning their business ?
mathew - UK (22573)
Some aspects include:
* Define the service or product you plan to offer.
* Define who your potential customers. Who would be interested in what you have to offer, and what is the demand for it?
* What is the technical background and expertise of the people involved in the company?
* Do you have existing or potential clients ready to hire you now? If not, how much money do you need to get started?
Also see our section on Entrepreneurship.
I hope these ideas help.
Business innovation with a mobile phone
April 1, 2012
Describe how innovation can be used as competitive commercial activity by a mobile phone ?
shan - UK (22549)
Innovation is coming up with a new product or service that would be of value to users or customers.
There are many apps or applications that have been created for mobile phones that help salesmen and business people to get an edge on their competition. Some even think of unexpected ways to use a mobile phone to gain an advantage.
Intellectual rights on a mobile phone
March 29, 2012
describe the intellectual rights might consider when operating in the mobile phone market ?
steve - UK (22545)
Some uses of a mobile phone, as well as some associated devices and applications, have been patented.
However, intellectual rights primarily cover material sent over a mobile phone that has copyright restrictions. Apps or applications for the phone may also be considered covered under intellectual rights.
If it is someone else's idea, you need to make sure you have or need permission to use it.
