Managerial Accounting/Data Interpretation of Accounting figures/ 2-HOUR TURNAROUND/ DONT BID IF YOU CANT DELIVER!!!

 Managerial Accounting Report to Management - NOTE EXCEL SHEETS  ARE ALREADY DONE!


(EVERY PART OF THE WORK IS DONE, JUST FILL IN THE INTERPRETATION OF THE FIGURES IN THE POWERPOINT SLIDES AS WELL AS SOME NARRATION OF WHAT TO BE SAID IN THE MEETING)


Question:  

Though you get frustrated at times with your CEO's constant requests for information, it is your job as a CFO to analyze that data for her. You both understand that data provides a basis for sound operational decision-making (integrating accounting and financial information). The CEO's final request is for an analysis and summary of financial projections for the Mini and Android lines, based on the information gathered in the previous steps.  

You collect your previous reports and spreadsheets and pore over them, looking for meaningful trends and patterns.


LECTURERS COMMENTS TO HELP


Every good presentation starts with an agenda, accompanied by a narrative.

 

 What are you going to say to management – just presenting a slide without explanation means management is just reading your slide.  


What are going to tell management? 

Why do they need to hear your presentation?  

What are they going to learn from you?


Slide 3:  has no narrative.  What are the words that you are going to tell management?  The table is well done and the order of the columns reflects an understanding of the terms and is readily understood.  But, you need to add a narrative.

Slide 4: has no narrative.  .A central point to this slide is the way FC per unit declines and hence, total cost per unit declines, as volume of production increases.  Make that point clearer in your narrative.

Slide 5: Very nice job organizing the data:  Sales – Costs = gross profit   What does this mean?  What are joint production costs?  Why allocate those costs on the basis of sales?

Slide 6:  under these two allocation basis.  What caused the difference?  Is one more correct than another?  How would you go about determining which cost is most accurate?

Slide 7:     Under what circumstances is ABC superior to traditional costing methods?

Slide 8:  What are the pros and cons of markup pricing?  What meaning do you attach to the different prices when costs are different?  

Every presentation must end with a summary and recommendations that are based on your analysis.

Restructure your presentation based on the order of steps in the project. Add an agenda and summary/recommendation.  Add narrative to each slide.  Include more data in the slides that explain the costs under the various costing allocation methods.
