questions 1-7

1. 

Over the period of record of data shown in Figure 1, the global mean sea level increased nearly _____in.  This is equivalent to about 225 mm.

2. 

Figure 1 indicates that from 1993 to 2014, global mean sea level values determined by coastal tide gauges and by satellite altimetry were generally ______.

3. 

In Figure 2, the blue 60-day (running-average) smoothing curve shows that in late 2010 a _____ in sea level began that persisted for several months.  By early 2012, the sea level returned to the long-term black trend line drawn on the graph.

4. 

Figure 3 demonstrates that regional sea-level trends from 1993 to 2014 ____ uniform worldwide.  While the global mean sea level increased during the time period covered (As evidenced by the dominance of warm colors on the map), the figure shows that some ocean areas experienced a lowering of sea level.

5. 

The animations reveal that the greater changes in sea level generally occur in the _____ Ocean basin.

6. 

The IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) states that “Global mean sea level will continue to rise during the 21st century.  Under all RCP scenarios, the rate of sea level rise will very likely exceed that observed during 1971 to 2010 due to increased ocean warming and increased loss of mass from glaciers and ice sheets.”  According to Figure 4, the rise projected by the lower GHG concentrations rCP2.6 scenario will be about 0.42 m above the year 2000 value of about 0.28 m, while for higher GHG concentration RCP8.5 scenario, the sea level rise this century will be about ____ m.

Team Case Study 3 – Week 6

Balanced Scorecard Case – Team Case (2-3 team members)

(Course Objective G)

Many companies are using the Balanced Scorecard System to assist in their performance management. According to Garrison, Noreen, and Brewer (2015) a balanced scorecard “consists of integrated set of performance measures that are derived from and support a company’s strategy” (p. 490). In a Balanced Scorecard System the company’s strategy is translated into a system of performance measures that are used to monitor the company’s performance in meeting its strategic objectives.

As part of a two-member team, your task is to identify and discuss the key performance measures of a balanced scorecard. Then, find three companies that are currently using a Balanced Scorecard System by doing an internet and library database search. Internet searches as well searches of financial databases, such as Yahoo Finance, should help you in your efforts. Then discuss in as much detail as possible the specifics of the balanced scorecard that is being used by these companies.

Deliverable

Your team should prepare 6-8 slide PowerPoint presentation, explaining the specifics of the balanced scorecard system of the three companies you selected in your research. This presentation should include your analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of each company’s Balanced Scorecard System.  Be sure to clearly document the performance measures being used by each of the three companies.

Your PowerPoint presentation should be narrated using VoiceThread or similar technology. All team members must participate in the narration of the PowerPoint presentation.

APA standards are required to be followed for this presentation.
