Google Apps for small managements

Google... it has been innovating every time and I seemed to have fallen in love with their products. I am very keen to try out their 'beta' products and then decide which one is suitable. The latest one that impressed me is Google Apps and it seems to fit the bill for the small enterprises.

The best thing about Google Apps is

"Want simple, powerful communication and collaboration tools for your organization without the usual hassle and cost?"


The initiatives will helps primarily educational institutions, small businesses and personal groups who wants to network amongst themselves. These low cost solutions will help them to perform better.

Small and Medium sized Accounting firms usually rely on yahoo, gmail or hotmail for their internal and external communication. Their spending budget is not quite handsome. With google apps, they can spend Rs 495 to Rs 800 on domain name and then use the free Google Apps for all their employees. Track Meetings, Whereabouts of their employees and chat with their employees on Google Chat for those who are on travel.

I have been testing on my domain name www.santoshputhran.com and emails that I have created works pretty good. I have not redirected my url to google apps so far but created start up pages to test them. It looks good. I would probably use one of my domains for my family. So if you have a domain name registered, why not try Google Apps.

I found an article on the internet "Wrong About Google Apps" Read it.

Last but not the least, please share your thoughts, how best we can use the application for our education institutions and small businesses.

Throughput Accounting

Throughput accounting (TA) is an alternative to cost accounting proposed by Eliyahu M. Goldratt. It is not based on Standard Costing or Activity Based Costing (ABC). Throughput Accounting is not costing and it does not allocate costs to products and services. It can be viewed as business intelligence for profit maximization. Conceptually throughput accounting seeks to increase the velocity at which products move through an organization by eliminiating bottlenecks within the organization.


Cost (or Management) accounting is an organization's internal method used to measure efficiency. Since no one outside the organization uses such internal accounts for investment or other decisions, any methods that an organization finds helpful can be used.


Throughput accounting improves profit performance with better management decisions by using measurements that more closely reflect the effect of decisions on three critical monetary variables (throughput, inventory, and operating expense — defin…

Learning Curve Theory

Learning Curve Theory is concerned with the idea that when a new job, process or activity commences for the first time it is likely that the workforce involved will not achieve maximum efficiency immediately. Repetition of the task is likely to make the people more confident and knowledgeable and will eventually result in a more efficient and rapid operation. Eventually the learning process will stop after continually repeating the job. As a consequence the time to complete a task will initially decline and then stabilise once efficient working is achieved. The cumulative average time per unit is assumed to decrease by a constant percentage every time that output doubles. Cumulative average time refers to the average time per unit for all units produced so far, from and including the first one made.

Major areas within management accounting where learning curve theory is likely to have consequences and suggest potential limitations of this theory.

Resistence to Change - Approaches of Kotter and Schlesinger

The Six (6) Change Approaches of Kotter and Schlesinger is a model to prevent, decrease or minimize resistance to change in organizations.
According to Kotter and Schlesinger (1979), there are four reasons that certain people are resisting change: Parochial self-interest (some people are concerned with the implication of the change for themselves ad how it may effect their own interests, rather than considering the effects for the success of the business)Misunderstanding(communication problems; inadequate information)Low tolerance to change (certain people are very keen on security and stability in their work)Different assessments of the situation (some employees may disagree on the reasons for the change and on the advantages and disadvantages of the change process) Kotter and Schlesinger set out the following six (6) change approaches to deal with this resistance to change: Education and Communication - Where there is a lack…
