W8 Discussion #1 Accounting There are significant differences between large and small organizations – this week we read about the decentralization that is typically present in large organizations. We were introduced to the Balanced Scorecard, which is used to help managers make better decisions with more current data. The authors used the example of Hyatt Hotel chain, in which the employees at a specific site (Maui) are authorized to make the decision regarding a hotel guest’s checkout time. Let’s discuss how this might play out…provide an example of how a late checkout would impact the organization’s goals. What are the relevant data that contribute to this decision? How does the Balanced Scorecard help with the decision- making process? What is the ROI for this decision?

    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.
