Assignment 29912

Based on what you know about the organization’s financial health and
performance, you will then forecast future performance of the company for each
of the next three years.

Prompt: After having evaluated
the Walt Disney co. financial health, you should research and assess the
company’s strategic priorities and behavior. You should investigate internal
risks and non-monetary factors that may affect current and future performance
and decisions. To justify your findings and projections, you will need to produce
accurate and relevant data tables, explaining how the numbers were informed by
existing information and modeling different scenarios.

IV. Success
Factors and Risks. Use this section to discuss the factors that may affect
current and future performance. Specifically:

A. 
How do the organization’s
financial and strategic priorities affect accounting procedures and business
decisions? How might that affect business success? For example, is management growth-oriented
or efficiency-oriented? What is the organization’s approach to risk and short-
versus long-term planning
horizons?

B.How might the organization better capitalize on non-financial factors such
as market share, reputation, human resources, physical facilities, or patents? Support your response
with relevant research and analysis.

C.What are the most significant internal risks to the company’s financial
performance? Give evidence to support your response. For example, is the company vulnerable to
technological changes or cyber-attacks? Loss of high-talent personnel?
Production disruptions?

V Projections. Based on what you know about the organization’s financial health
and performance, forecast its future performance. In particular, you
should:

A. 
Project the organization’s
likely consolidated financial performance for each of the next three years.
Support your analysis with an appendix spreadsheet showing actual results for
the most recent year, along with your projections and assumptions. Remember,
your supervisor is interested in fresh perspectives, so you should not just
replicate existing financial statements, but should add other relevant
calculations or disaggregations to help inform decisions.

B.Modify your projections for the coming year to show a best- and worst-case
scenario, based on the potential success factors and risks you identified. As
with your initial projections, support your analysis with an appendix
spreadsheet, specifying your assumptions and including relevant calculations
and disaggregations beyond those in existing financial reports.

C.Discuss how your assumptions, forecasting methodology, and information
gaps affect your projections. Why are your projections appropriate? For
example, are they consistent with the organization’s mission and priorities?
Aggressive but achievable? How would changing your assumptions change your
projections?
