Week 2 | Human Resource Management homework help

The goal of this assignment is to demonstrate your ability in creating various Pivot Tables and to perform data visualization. To complete this homework assignment, you must solve the three problems attached. Each problem is in a different tab of the Excel file and further instructions on solving these problems are listed in the Module 2 Homework Instructions document.



Question 1: Mutual Funds

The file MutualFunds contains a data set with information for 45 mutual funds that are part of the Morningstar Funds 500. The data set includes the following five variables: 

Note that Excel may display the column headings as 0–10, 10–20, 20–30, etc., but they should be interpreted as 0–9.99, 10–19.99, 20–29.99, etc.

  • Fund Type: The type of fund, labeled DE (Domestic Equity), IE (International Equity), and FI (Fixed Income)
  • Net Asset Value ($): The closing price per share
  • Five-Year Average Return (%): The average annual return for the fund over the past five years
  • Expense Ratio (%): The percentage of assets deducted each fiscal year for fund expenses
  • Morningstar Rank: The risk adjusted star rating for each fund; Morningstar ranks go from a low of 1 Star to a high of 5 Stars.
  1. Prepare a PivotTable that gives the frequency count of the data by Fund Type (rows) and the five-year average annual return (columns). Use classes of 0–9.99, 10–19.99, 20–29.99, 30–39.99, 40–49.99, and 50–59.99 for the Five-Year Average Return (%).

Question 2: Logan 

The Northwest regional manager of Logan Outdoor Equipment Company has conducted a study to determine how her store managers are allocating their time. A study was undertaken over three weeks that collected the following data related to the percentage of time each store manager spent on the tasks of attending required meetings, preparing business reports, customer interaction, and being idle. The results of the data collection appear in the following table:

  1. Create a stacked-bar chart with locations along the vertical axis. Reformat the bar chart to best display these data by adding axis labels, a chart title, and so on.
  2. Create a clustered-bar chart with locations along the vertical axis and clusters of tasks. Reformat the bar chart to best display these data by adding axis labels, a chart title, and the like.

Question 3: Ajax

The Ajax Company uses a portfolio approach to manage their research and development (R&D) projects. Ajax wants to keep a mix of projects to balance the expected return and risk profiles of their R&D activities. Consider a situation in which Ajax has six R&D projects as characterized in the table. Each project is given an expected rate of return and a risk assessment, which is a value between 1 and 10, where 1 is the least risky and 10 is the most risky. Ajax would like to visualize their current R&D projects to keep track of the overall risk and return of their R&D portfolio.
