We will explore the impact of stakeholders on organizational decisions. Riverside Healthcare is a large system located in Seattle. The organization has a Cancer Department that is renowned for some of its cutting edge treatments. We have a good relationship with the local community due to our charity work. We also have several other recognized services such as our cardiac care, endocrinology and burn units. The cancer department has put forth a proposal to purchase the MRIdian (MRI-Guided Radiation Therapy). As you can imagine it is very expensive and some of our stakeholders are not so sure this is how we should spend a multi-million dollar gift we just received. You will need to do some research on this tool. You will also put yourself in the shoes of the following stakeholders – providers, patients, board members, and administrators. It is important as an administrator, you have some insight into how these groups might react to decisions we make. It allows you to prepare arguments to support our position. You are to prepare a report, for senior leadership, that summarizes the views of the stakeholders.

Describe an activity or process or product of your chosen company that exhibits

Describe an activity or process or product of your chosen company that exhibits economies or diseconomies of scale. Describe the source of the scale economy. How could the organization exploit the scale economy or diseconomy?
<
<
A good example for this discussion identifies the output (what is being produced), the inputs, and how average cost (AC; cost per unit) increased or decreased as that output and input changed over time (‘the long-run’). If AC rises when output and inputs increase from one period to the next (the long-run) then the production exhibits diseconomies of scale. When AC falls it exhibits economies of scale.

Did Jim and Laura Buy a Car? SCENARIO: Jim and Laura Buyer visit the local

Did Jim and Laura Buy a Car?
<
SCENARIO: Jim and Laura Buyer visit the local car dealership because they are interested in buying a new car. The car they currently have is aging and is starting to have mechanical problems. Jim and Laura would share the new car, and use it to go back and forth to work and school. Before going to the dealership, Jim and Laura decide that they can only afford $400.00 a month in car payments.
<
<
Once at the car dealership, Jim and Laura meet Stan Salesman. Stan shows them several vehicles and Jim and Laura test-drive several of the cars. Jim and Laura particularly like the blue 4-door sedan. Therefore, they agree to give Stan Salesman a $100.00 deposit to hold the car for a day. Stan Salesman does not give them the receipt but guarantees that the $100.00 is refundable. No documents were signed.
<
<
The next day, Stan Salesman calls Jim and Laura to ask them when they would like to take delivery of the car. Jim and Laura, on the way home from the dealership, decided that they were not going to buy the car because they did not want to spend that money each month. Therefore, Jim and Laura tell Stan Salesman that they have decided not to buy the car and request their $100.00 deposit back.
<
<
Stan insists that the $100.00 was a deposit on the car and was meant to be part of the contract to buy the car. Stan is very persistent and insistent that Jim and Laura have contracted to buy the car; therefore, the $100.00 will be applied to the purchase price of the car. Jim and Laura are shocked and angry as not only do they not want to spend the money, but now feel as though they are being duped by Stan Salesman.
<
<
Jim and Laura have an appointment to see a lawyer in a few days, but know you are a student taking a business law class and come to you for advice. They are very frazzled, and understandably upset that they may have just purchased a car. Since you have been taking business law, you have read and understand the elements of a contract and the defenses to a contract. Therefore, although you are not a lawyer, you provide some basic advice from what you’ve learned in your business law class.
<
<
ASSIGNMENT: In three to five (3-5) pages, advise Jim and Laura based on the above facts as presented and the material covered in the lessons. In your paper, be sure to address the following:
<

<
Decide whether or not there was a contract for the purchase of the automobile.
<
Identify the facts from the scenario which support your decision on whether or not a contract exists for the purchase of the automobile.
<
Use at least two (2) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other websites do not qualify as quality academic resources.
<
<
