The objective of the research paper is to present ACS State and Local Solutions as an organization that can benefit from a change readiness assessment. The twenty first century points to a constant change, rapid growth, and to try to get as much business as possible, however constant search for more capital weakens and strengthens different areas of the organization.

Weisbord proposes his Six-Box model as a diagnostic framework for organizations. He expresses that a blip in any one box cannot be managed independently of its relationship to other boxes. However, six potential starting places give you alternatives when choosing an improvement strategy (Weisbord 1978).

What is the role of accounting and financial decision making in Business? Why is essential to consider accounting data in relation to other factors in other decisions in all situations.

The word accounting can firstly be defined as the collection, recording, compiling and forecasting of financial information.

There are two different strands in accounting, and these are financial accounting and management accounting. Financial accounting has information about reports of the past, it can be used by external users, it needs to be reliable, accurate and consistent, it is ruled by accounting conventions and legal requirements, and it covers the company as a whole.

A lot of students question themselves: “How to write good finance papers?” – It isn’t really hard if you know the basics how to write finance papers. Students usually get these assignments when they have finance as their major, and have big troubles writing finance papers. Let me assure you, if you know how to write a good finance paper, you will be able to write good finance papers and any other paper of that kind.

Choosing a topic

Choosing a topic is always difficult, as the topic defines the quality of your paper. If you choose a bad and boring topic – you won’t be able to succeed in writing your finance paper. This problem doesn’t occur when you are given a topic to write on, and you don’t have to choose. When choosing the finance paper topic – all you have to do is define your main audience. If you define it correctly – you will be able to write a good and interesting finance paper according to their interests. When you write a finance paper – it is mainly oriented on your professor, so you have to think through of what he wants to read in your paper? Maybe he wants a true novelty in your paper, something that has never been mentioned before, or maybe he wants you to repeat everything that was said by him before, on lectures. If you answer this question correctly – you will be on half track to success.

Structuring your text

It is essential for your great finance paper to be well structured. Try writing the finance paper using an outline, as your guide through different topics. When you make an outline of your finance paper – you make sure it will be logical and algorithmically balanced. Always double check your outline, as your structure or the structure of your finance paper is the basis, according to which you start adding some detailed parts and chapters. If you make a mistake in an outline – it would be an unbearable mistake, and you’ll have to rewrite the whole finance paper from scratch.

Always check what you’ve written, and try to hand in your paper to someone else for them to say their comments on the paper, how it is written, how the message is delivered, the spelling, typos whatsoever. Criticism from a different writer – is the best what you can do to improve your paper.
