The Grizzly Bear Lodge – Case Study Discuss how Rudy and Diane can use feed forward, concur- rent, and feedback controls both  now and in the future at the Grizzly Bear Lodge to ensure their guests’ satisfaction. Feed Forward: Feed forward is really like preventative control.   Rudy and Diane should implement plans for  starting the expansion of their business.  These plans should start immediately before any  expansion work starts.  Feed forward control would incorporate making sure that: Plans are in place to make sure that they themselves are available as well as staff to both  maintain the lodge and work on the new annex they are looking to Acquire.  Also how much  disruption or inconvenience will this cause guests that are going to be lodging during this take  over?  If they are planning to hire additional staff they should allow enough time for candidates  to be hired and trained before opening the new Annex.  This will mean that their current staff  may have to set some valuable time away from their daily duties to training new staff.  Another  example of feed forward control would be for Diane and Rudy to hire an accountant to take a  look at their finances and forecast their new investment before they jump into it.  I identify any  risks with the investment and set some target numbers they should me to stay afloat.  The  accountant may also want to look at expenses such as labor expenses and building budget, and  fixed expenses.  Basically they should look at how likely are they going to succeed with their  plan, what expenses will they need to consider and what kind of profit are should they  anticipate.  They also may want to plan out how they are going to team up with nearby

    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.
