Discussion Question Week 5 DQ 2 Due Week 5 Day 3 Based on the assigned scenario, answer the following questions: How do the alternatives stack up against the goals? What scoring system would you use? Based on earlier discussions and subsequent information, I am confident that HK should continue with the initiative; however, seeking a company or “partner” that has experience e-book publishing (successfully, with proven results) would support their goals for competitive growth, credibility, and continuing as a going concern. Scoring System Alternatives—as compared to each goal—could be best assessed through a weighted-average scoring system of -2 to 2.

That will improve their business (and ours!)” R & A CPAs has a dual progress and performance measurement system. In other words, in order to create a sustainable increase in business value, R & A CPAs believes they must ultimately become involved in key performance indicators (KPI) monitoring, not only for themselves but also for existing and future clients. Basically, what are the things that the business must do to “get it right”?
