This example uses a scenario to show how the case study analysis can work for some organizations. The scenario comes from Harvard University’s Office of the Vice President for Finance and Administration. Here, there are four main people that work in the office. Each of these people has a major responsibility in the office.
First, there is the Deputy Managing Director. This person is responsible for overseeing all the organization’s financial resources. He/she is also responsible for doing general management and hiring. He/she coordinates all the accounts that relate to the operations of the office.
Next, there is the payroll officer. She is responsible for collecting and interpreting the income and expenses of the organization. This person must keep accurate records of every person in the office.
Finally, there is the Human Resources Manager. He/she keeps an eye on the payroll, and coordinates with the other two leaders. He/she also prepares all the company’s budget and tries to make the office run smoothly.
The Human Resources Manager must coordinate with the other two leaders, so that they know what financial information to share with them. This is done through regular meetings with all of the leaders. Once all the information is given, the Human Resources Manager can make decisions about how to spend the money.
After reviewing the financial information, the manager decides what to do with the money. The manager then starts working with the Vice President for Finance and Administration. This will help make sure that the plan will work and be effective.
After the financial data is reviewed, the Vice President for Finance and Administration starts by thinking about the financial issues. He/she will also look at how the financial data could impact the financial future of the company. This is done to find out if there are any ways to improve the way the office runs.
After this step, the financial decision making process begins. The managers will look at how the data would affect the future. This will help to find out if there are any areas where improvements can be made. These areas could include better budgets, planning, or processes.
Once all the financial issues have been discussed, the Vice President for Finance and Administration looks over all the results. This will help determine what changes need to be made. It will also help to find out which areas of the office are weak and need improvement. Once the changes are agreed upon, a budget will be set up.
After the budget is set, the VPFCDA will review the financial data and will look at the new set of financial data. This helps determine if the new set of data is going to be good enough for the company. Once the data is agreed upon, the new budget will be put into effect.
The previous two steps involve going over the financial issues. There are two more steps that follow these. The first is that the VPFCDA will review the reports and then make decisions about the future of the office. This helps the office adjust to the new decisions.
