BMKT 325: Written Proposal
Word count: 500-600
A major component of this course involves students working individually to each develop a
new product or service for an existing company. Choose a company(YWCA Missoula Secret Seconds Thrift Store)(i wanted to add a online shopping function on the website.)and then write an initial
proposal (500-600 words) that concisely describes the following:
1. The key feature(s) of your new product or service.
2. The problem it solves or opportunity it fills.
3. Its unique selling proposition (i.e. how it differs from the competition).
4. The target market.
This initial proposal should succinctly outline the above information so that the instructor can
provide feedback on your idea. You will then be able incorporate that feedback, expand and
deepen your ideas, and pitch your product/service to the class (Assessment 2).
Expectations:
1. The assignment should be word processed and neatly presented with correct spelling,
grammar, and punctuation. Please use size 12 Times New Roman font and 1.5 spacing.
2. The assignment should be 600 words max (excluding cover page and any references). It may
seem difficult to get all of the information you think is useful into this limited space; however,
part of your task is to determine what is relevant and to communicate in a clear and concise
manner.
3. In the event of a late submission without special consideration: 5% will be deducted if the
assignment is submitted on the due date but after the deadline. An additional 5% will be
deducted each day past the deadline. Example: if the assignment is due Friday 5pm and you
submit Friday 6pm then 5% will be deducted. Submitting anytime on Saturday would result in
10% being deducted. Submitting anytime Sunday would result in a 15% deduction, and so on.

Most employees have been working from home and at different times of day which make it hard for teams to work together.

This assignment will help you apply what you learned in Chapter 1 to more of a real world scenario.
Company ABC is a large technology firm located in Seattle, WA. Pre-pandemic, the company worked hard to build and maintain wonderful team dynamics which naturally led to loyalty and passionate ideas. In pandemic times, one of the company’s top challenges is team growth and collaboration. Most employees have been working from home and at different times of day which make it hard for teams to work together. In addition, it has led to employee burnout from remote work. Teams have not been working well together and some employees have grown resentful that they’re “doing all the work” for others.
The executive team is now struggling to decide whether or not to enforce a “back to office” policy. This would be either having employees return to the office a few days each week or even full-time. It’s possible the company would lose some employees who prefer to work remotely or have a flexible work schedule. Many employees have complained that with rising gas prices and other great employment opportunities, they would prefer to switch jobs than drive in to work.
Draw a logic tree for Company ABC’s whether or not to enforce a “back to office” policy.
You will need to do some research to determine the impact of enforcing a back to office policy including the monetary costs of leasing a building or more office space.
You can draw the logic tree by hand and take a picture and submit a picture or you can use word or excel.
Make sure to include details: if you were a manager, how would you estimate the cost of losing an employee or losing productivity if the employee remained at home? The more information you add, the better. Remember: the goal is to put yourself in the position of a manager and consider what factors would impact your decision.

Include additional details as slide notes.

Create a 9-slide presentation in which you analyze cost accounting practices to make a recommendation about whether or not to accept a purchase offer at a lower price than normal. You may either record the presentation or write a 2-3 page supporting report.
Scenario
The Acme Pickle Company has distributed pickles under the “Florida’s Best” brand for eight years from its production facility in Jacksonville, Florida. It sells the pickles to stores in the southeastern United States. Acme normally produces between 8,000 and 10,000 cases of pickles a month but has the capacity to produce 12,000 cases without adding equipment or personnel.
The owner of a twenty-store supermarket chain in Wisconsin, called Super Deals, visits friends in Florida and is impressed with the quality of “Florida’s Best” pickles. He approaches you, an Acme Pickle account manager, with an offer to buy 2,000 cases of pickles to use in a special promotion at his stores. He is thinking of something such as:
“Free jar of Florida’s Best pickles with every purchase of forty dollars or more—this month only!”
He offers Acme a price of $9.50 per case, knowing that it is a very substantial discount from the normal selling price of $20 a case. Acme’s management is inclined to turn the offer down, because their cost is calculated at $10.00 a case. They believe they would lose money if they sold at $9.50 a case. You, on the other hand, believe that some errors have been made in the cost accounting.
Your Role
You are the account manager for Acme Pickles.
Requirements
Your analysis for the Controller and Sales Manager is needed to suggest a different way of calculating the pricing of the pickles that may be lower. As part of your analysis, address the following items:
Explain why some production costs are variable and some are fixed.
Analyze the benefit of recalculating the cost of pickle production.
How would you recalculate it?
What would the result be?
What is the benefit to the company of recalculating the cost?
Analyze how financial accounting of production cost differs from managerial accounting of production cost.
Explain the difference between the two accounting methods.
Identify the benefits and drawbacks of each method.
Recommend a plan of action to management regarding Super Deals’ offer.
Below is the cost report for a recent month. In this month, Acme produced 9,000 cases and sold them at $20 per case, which is Acme’s normal selling price. Nine thousand cases are well beyond Acme’s break-even point, enabling Acme to record a substantial profit at the nine-thousand-case level.
Acme Pickle Company Cost Report
Item Cost
Cucumbers $15,000
Spices and vinegar 11,000
Jars and lids 10,000
Direct labor, paid by the case 30,000
Line supervisors, on salary 10,000
Depreciation on factory 10,000
Property taxes on factory 3,000
Insurance on factory 1,000
Total Costs: $90,000
Cost per case (9,000 cases produced) $10.00
Deliverable Format
Your team lead wants to share this analysis across remote locations of the organization and is hoping you will set the standard for how analyses and decisions of this type should be presented and supported. Your team has requested either a recorded presentation (including slides and notes) or a presentation and supporting reporting that can be distributed as a model. Prepare a presentation of at least 9 slides using PowerPoint or software of your choice detailing your recommendation and the information you used to make your recommendation. You can either record the presentation or prepare a separate report supporting the presentation.
If you choose to record your presentation, you may use Capella-supported Kaltura Media or another technology of your choice that produces a shareable URL. Kaltura is recording software that can be used to create webcam, screen, and audio recordings. Refer to the MBA Program Resources for the Using Kaltura tutorial to prepare for this option. If you choose to use something other than Kaltura Media, ensure that it creates a shareable URL and can be embedded in the courseroom to ensure faculty can access your recording.
Note: If you require the use of assistive technology or alternative communication methods to participate in these activities, please contact DisabilityServices@Capella.edu to request accommodations.

1. The plan report should follow the above order and format including the title page, table of contents, and all the headers.
2. A 10 to 12-page report, single spaced, using “Times New Roman” 12-point font should be preferably used. Justify your writeup on both the sides. The report needs to be paged using bottom right corner with “page 1 of 10” type paging format. Use the header to provide the title and a footer with your name and SIUE ID/along with the page number.

5. Try to be creative and do a good and professional job. Adding some visuals, tables, and charts makes a marketing plan report appealing and interesting compared to just plain monotonous text.
