Communique Review Memo
To: Herber Howard
From: Nicolle Pack
Subject: Communique Review
The communications for Team B were to the Marketing manager, the Sales manager and the Accountant-Peer. These were all written as formal memos. After a review of these communications, I think that the information was presented in the correct communicational format. However, I do feel that some of the communiques could have included more information specific to the information they were to be presenting.
The memo to the Marketing manager did not covey the intended message. I think that the information provided was too vague. The writer should have included more information ...view middle of the document...
The information provided in this memo is not sufficient to derive any decisions as to the acquisition of JJJ Company.
The memo to the Sales manager was written more clearly and effectively. The information presented was more related to the sales side of the business. However, I still feel that more sales specific information could have been presented. The writer did not make any assumptions as to whether or not the acquisition should continue and they weren’t supposed to. I do not see any ethical issues arising from the information provided in this memo.
The communiques presented in the assignment were not meant to recommend any action for or against the acquisition of JJJ Company and with the exception of the memo to the Marketing manager, no recommendations were offered. The communications were meant to convey the status of the review of the financials and the due diligence of the company and this information was presented. However, two out of the three memos failed to present the information clearly, which could cause some delay or disorganization in the acquisition process.
I think that the information provided in two of the memos provided what was required. However, the third memo was a little vague and implied the acquisition would be a non-returning acquisition. This could cause un-ethical decisions to be made simply because the information provided in that memo is not sufficient to derive those conclusions. The members of management reading these memos would need to be very guarded and only use information provided in a final report to make the decisions as to the liquidity of the acquisition.
