REQUIRED READING
SCENARIO CONTINUATION:
SLP2 – It’s New Year’s day, 2016. You just had a great New Year’s
Eve celebration. You have finished analyzing the performance of Clipboard
Tablet Co. in a great report that you turned in a few days early to Sally
Smothers. Now you are ready to charge ahead into the future.
As you turn on the TV you notice something strange. The TV
commentator is saying something about New Year’s Day, 2012. You look around and
everything looks different. Yes, it’s true; it’s New Year’s Day, 2012. Time has
rewound – a Time Warp, like the guy in the movie “Groundhog Day.”
You realize that you get to make the decisions
for Clipboard Tablet Co. starting with 2012. Perhaps you can do
better than Joe Schmoe.
At the beginning of each year (2012-2015), you will determine your
pricing, your R&D allocations, and whether or not to discontinue any products.
You make your decisions and time advances to the end of that year, and you look
at the results to see what happened. You keep track of your decisions and make
notes about your reasoning and analysis of the data, keeping the data for later
analysis.
You run the Marketing of Clipboard Tablet Co. through
the end of 2015. It is now December 31, 2015, New Year’s Eve. What is your
total Score? Did you do better than Joe Schmoe?
You decide to organize your notes about your decisions, your
analysis, and your reasoning into a report, which you think will help you move
ahead into 2016.

ASSIGNMENT

Co. simulation with your strategy, making decisions year by year for prices and
R&D allocations. Write a 4- to 6-page paper, not including
