Business Communication
Answer the following question.
Q1. What is Communication policy? What are its Specifications (10 marks)

ANSWER

Organization communication policies set expectations and manage the flow of communication both within and outside an organization. It’s important to set policies that facilitate meaningful and necessary communication necessary for employee productivity and morale, without restricting communication so much that employees feel intimidated and powerless. Having a good communication policy in place reduces conflicts and misunderstandings, and also eases transitions such as layoffs or mergers.

Employee communication policies can vary according to organization type. The military has a very strict chain of command, and while such a policy is typically mimicked at private companies there is more room for independent decision-making. For example, a clerical worker having an issue with a coworker or manager might be encouraged to communicate the problem to her immediate supervisor, who may then have discretion to handle it herself or take the issue up further in the chain of command, depending on the seriousness of the situation. Other communication policies typically include regular progress …………………………..

It shows participants where they are going, but it’s then up to the participants to figure out how to get there. Be sure to distribute the agenda and any prework in advance. By distributing the agenda and prework before the meeting, participants can prepare for the meeting ahead of time.

Case Studies
A monte Carlo Case Study (20
Marks)
Laura,’ a 57 year old unmarried woman, earns around 68,000 dollars per year with expenditure of 37,500 dollars. She hit away
14,000 dollars each year and collected 330,000 dollars in her RRSP and TFSA, and also a rented apartment worth 250,000 dollars.
She has a iixed pension given by her employer, although it is not indicated to price rise, and Is entitled to get complete benefits of
Canada Pension Plan and Old Age Security, for retirement. She did not have a very competent portfolio: one fourth of cash is there,
and most of it was in contracted sector ETFs, single stocks and business bonds. Due to wrong entry of ETFs in the account,
unnecessary taxes were charged. Even before reconstructing Laura’s portfolio,”he had to make certain that it matched with.her
financial aims. Laura’s main aim was to ascertain if she could retire before the age of 65, maybe as early as 60, therefore she had to
know if her investments could produce enough flow of cash after she retires. Monte Carlo may show a top possibility of success with
the allotment of equity of 70% ot 80%. Through a risky questionnaire and art open interview, Justin Ill ‘ascertain that Laura was the
best person for a portfolio of 60% fixed income and 40% equities. . Through Monte Carlo software, Justin entered the current
portfolio . size of Laura, her rate of savings, projected retirement expenditure, and other employer income and government pensions.
If Laura feels that working till the age of 63 was unpleasant, she could go for the reproduction again and with different estimation.
Increasing her anticipated returns or bringing down the rate of inflation, is only a thought, therefore, she will have to make some
stronger decisions: she will have to making some more savings, or bring down her rate of planned expenses after retirement.
Amazingly, by bringing up the allotment to fixed salary could increase her opportunity to succeed: in spite of th returns being lower
than the equities, the volatility is also less, which lessens the risk of helpless decline in the early years. At last, Laura decided to work
for 6 more years and plan her retirement at the age of 63. After this, Justin decided to help her make a fresh ETF portfolio to match
that goal: it was finalized at 30% short term business bonds, 30% GICs, and the rest of it was divided among Canadian, L’S and
global equities. Laura was able to make a notified decision through the Monte Carlo simulation, but this wasn’t the end of the
procedure. In two or three years time, she will have to visit the location again to see that she is still on the right path of her retirement
goal, as many issues like, loss of job, a legacy, new connections, increase in the interest rates, all these could bring a change in the
main suppusitions 1 ; and she will have to redo her plans. The possibilities are different before the age of 63. For each added year
that Laura works, her portfolio will addition instead of a decrease and this will lead to a thrilling difference: the success rate will rise
up by 25% points if she continues to work till the age of 61 instead of 60.
Answer the following question.
Q1. How much was Laura earning at the age of 57? (Hint: 68,000 dollars per year)

Time series analysis has two important aims: 1) recognizing the quality of the phenomenon shown by the series of studies, and 2)
Both the aims need the plan of the viewed time series data is recognized and somewhat officially explained: A time series is said to
be a ‘collection of observations made in sequence with time’. For example: recording level of daily rainfall, periodical total domestic
product of US, and monthly strength of the. workers in Marine Corps for a specific rank and MOS. The evaluation of time series
gives instruments for picking a symbolic model and delivering forecasts. There are two sorts of times series data: • Continuous: in
this the data consists of study at every moment, for example, seismic movement recorded on a seismogram. • Discrete: the data
contains recordings taken at different periods ,like, statistics of each month crime. Until the data is absolutely haphazard, studies in
time series are usually related to each and the following studies could be partly ascertain by the last values. For instance, the reasons
pertaining to the meteorology which have an effect on the temperature for any given day tend to have some affect on the next day’s
climate. Hence, the observations of the past temperature are helpful for predicting temperatures for the following days. • A time
series can be deterministic if there are no haphazard or feasible features but goes in a set and foreseeable manner. The data gathered
during the classical physics experiment like showing Newton’s Law of Motion, is one example of a deterministic time series. The
stochastic type of series is more appropriate to the econometric function. Stochastic variables contain undefined or arbitrary
viewpoint. Though the worth of each study cannot be precisely foreseen, calculating the various observations could follow the
expected method. These methods can be explained through the statistical models. According to these models, studies differ
erratically on the underlying mean value whtch is the role of time. Time series data can be put in the following categories: one or
more performance factors; trend, seasonality, cyclical function and random sound. Various kinds of time series predicting models
give forecasts through extrapolating the previous performance of the values of a specified \’l!riable of interest. Consecutive study in
econometric times series are generally not free and forecast can be made on the basis of last observations. Although precise
predictions can be made with deterministic time series, predictions of stochastic time series are restricted to ‘conditional statements
regarding the future on the basis of particular hypothesis.’ Armstrong (2001) says, “The basic Assumption is that the variable ui!!
continue in the future as it has behaved in the past. ” Particularly, the time series predictions are suitable for stochastic type of data in
which the fundamental root cause of variation like, trend, cyclical performance, seasonality, and uneven variations, do not change
radically m time. Therefore, modeling is considered to be more suitable temporarily instead of permanent predictions.
Answer the following question.
Q1.
Write briefly on time-series analysis. (Hint: recognizing the quality of the phenomenon shown by the series of
studies, and, both the aims need the plan of the viewed time series data is recognized and somewhat officially
