Write a 200-word essay on what the Enron experience tells managers the advice that they really need. Generally, what is the advice that comes out of the Enron narrative?

Here are some quotations, along with your research and your own analysis that are meant to help you in the writing of your essay:

  • “It was easy to get people to do deals, if you pay them up front.” (p. 181 of Maclean, B The Smartest Guys in the Room,. (2004)
  • (Skillings) had never let go of the consultant’s conceit that the idea was all and the idea, therefore, should be the thing that was rewarded.” (McClean, B., (2004) p.39.
  • “Skilling also had a tendency to oversimplify, and he largely disregarded – indeed, he had an active distaste for the messy details in the executing of a plan. What thrilled Skilling was the intellectual purity of an idea, not the translation of that idea into reality.” (McClean, B.,(2004) p.28
  • “Whatever the cost, Ken Lay made sure the family vacations were peaceful and that both wives had whatever they needed. Lay’s efforts to keep his bourgeoning family happy and give them lots of money were to become the template for his management style at Enron. (Bryce, Robert, Pipe Dreams, (2002) p.30.
  • Better still, the answer to why Enron failed could be boiled down to one word – a word that the business development people gurus love to spout off about. It’s a word that consultants and authors charge a $1,000 a day to discuss with management. It’s an expensive word, a word that has defined civilizations – and companies – for generations. It was the culture, stupid. (Bryce, R., (2002) p. 12.

The motion picture industry is a competitive business. More than 50 studios produce a total of 300 to 400 new motion pictures each year, and the financial success of each motion picture seems to vary considerably. The opening weekend gross sales, the total gross sales, the number of theaters the movie was shown in, and the number of weeks the motion picture was in the top 60 for gross sales are common variables used to measure the success of a motion picture. Data collected for a sample of 100 motion pictures produced in 2005 are contained in the Excel file named Movies.xlsx attached.


Consider the questions below from a non-technical point of view. That is, you don’t have to perform regression analyses or do any fancy statistics. What are your opinions and experiences? Have some fun!

  1. What are the top factors that influence a movie’s opening weekend sales? Try sorting the data in descending order of “Opening Gross” and exploring. Do these results match what your experience tells you?
  2. Skim through the list of movies. Have you seen any of them? If so, which ones did you like and why? Which ones did you not like and why? Do your preferences seem to match those of the general public (based on number of weeks in top 60)? [Yeah, I know that you were, like, 10 years old when these movies came out…]
  3. Are Opening Gross numbers always a good predictor of Total Gross? What factors might affect the relationship between Opening Gross and Total Gross?
  4. What kinds of movies are shown in many theaters? What kinds of movies are shown only in a few theaters? Why might a movie studio produce movies intended only for select theaters?

Rather than provide brief answers to all of the above questions, Pick two and digging deeper. Also respond to the post below, agree or disagree (discussion board).

Student post:

3.) No opening gross numbers for a movie are not always good predictors of total gross profit. The reason for this could be that not much is known about this movie and after a few people start seeing it and like it they can spread the word to their friends. A good example of this in our data is the movie Memoirs of a Geisha. During the opening weekend this movie made only $0.68 million. For total gross profit this movie ended up doing much better pulling in $56.07 million. My reasoning for this is that people were going off of recommendations of others whether it is friends, celebrities or critics who probably raved about this movie which got others to watch it.

You are required to conduct research into a named organisation that offers a product, a service or both. To meet the objectives of this assignment you will need to gain access to an operation and collect information and data that will assist in addressing the following tasks:


  1. How well does the operation perform across each of the five performance objectives (that the operation might attempt to achieve)? You should explain your findings by analysing your field data (primary research findings) using appropriate academic theory, tools or models to justify your conclusions.


  1. What capacity strategy do they currently use? You should help support this answer by identifying the current demand patterns of customers/users as well as the looking at the level of the various capacity constraints of the organisation. (Numerical/graphic analysis will therefore be beneficial in this section and, if done well, should be rewarded).
