MS6010 Course Project Guidelines

Your course project will consist of a 15–20-slide Microsoft PowerPoint presentation. These slides will help you present your investment idea to the President and CEO of the public company. As such, the slides must be well crafted to help convince the leader of the company of the need for the investment, the possible risks, and potential returns. Remember, the slides should outline the key points to be made and not overwhelm the viewer with too many details. You will provide the details in the speaker notes for each slide. The slide presentation must include:

  1. Cover page      listing the company, project, date, and presenter.
  2. Sufficient      background so that a potential investor understands the business.
  3. The      investment idea and summary justification.
  4. Enough      historic data from the worksheet you develop in Modules 3 and 4 to give an investor an understanding of      revenues, costs, expenses, cash flows, and potential returns in dollars      and using capital budgeting analysis concepts to demonstrate viability. 
  5. The break-even      of the project.
  6. Your final      analysis summary that details why the company should invest the money in      this project.
  7. Speaker      notes in your Microsoft PowerPoint presentation to include background      information that you would communicate verbally in a presentation. This speaker      notes content should be the length necessary to explain the outline      presented in the slides. Each slide must have the requisite speaker notes      to explain the material/data presented in the slides as if you are making      a formal presentation and expect to verbalize those words.

I chose Lockheed Martin to have an event for children in Pensacola Fl.

Advancing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education is a critical focus for Lockheed Martin. We know firsthand the importance of educating our young people in these areas. Our future success – and our nation’s technological advantage – depend on a constant supply of highly trained, highly capable technical talent.

Assignment 2: Course Project—

In this assignment, your goal is to use CVP analysis in a presentation of your project to enable a prospective investor to decide if your project is worth investing in. You will apply the concepts of CVP analysis learned in Modules 3 and 4 to the project you selected in Module 2.

Review the Course Project Guidelines.

Assignment Overview:

From the Microsoft Excel worksheet you developed in Modules 3 and 4, create a basic pro forma statement necessary to convince someone to provide the start-up funding of the project and then use this information, along with other outside research to create a Microsoft Power Point presentation. The slides of your presentation should be visually appealing—only containing the key points while the speaker notes associated with each slide should provide the essential details.

1. Summarize the company and explain CVP and Capital budgeting. Use outside resources to best explain CVP and capital budgeting.

2. Identify and list the various costs—fixed and variable, direct and indirect—required to execute the project.

3. Calculate the break-even point for the project and the expected financial returns. (This is the work you have been doing in the CVP template). Make sure you show your Excel formulas or provide calculations so your instructor can review your work. Save your final calculations as MS6010_M5A2_CVP_Lastname_Firstinitial.xls. The completed template must accompany the slide presentation.

4. Include a brief discussion of key points of any intangible benefits or costs associated with the project.

5. Supplement your pro forma statement with sufficient background information to enable a prospective investor to decide if your company is worth investing in.
