Score: 30/30 Points 100 % [The following information applies to the questions displayed below.] Kenneth Washburn, head of the Sporting Goods Division of Reliable Products, has just completed a miserable nine months. “If it could have gone wrong, it did. Sales are down, income is down, inventories are bloated, and quite frankly, I’m beginning to worry about my job,” he moaned. Washburn is evaluated on the basis of ROI. Selected figures for the past nine months follow. Sales $4,800,000 Operating income 360,000 Invested capital 6,000,000 In an effort to make something out of nothing and to salvage the current year’s performance, Washburn was contemplating implementation of some or all of the following four strategies: a . Write off and discard $60,000 of obsolete inventory. The company will take a loss on the disposal. b . Accelerate the collection of $80,000 of overdue customer accounts receivable. c . Stop advertising through year-end and drastically reduce outlays for repairs and maintenance. These actions are expected to save the division $150,000 of expenses and will conserve cash resources.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
