Deloitte (2013b) is a global company which provides comprehensive accounting services in a range of areas such as: auditing; taxation; consulting; risk management and financial advising. Gender discrimination is prevalent in workforce environments with senior management in companies being male dominated. Deloitte (2013a) understands that inspiring women is integral in the success of their company, knowing that productivity can be increased through using women as an under-utilised resource. Removing glass ceiling barriers for women is important for their status and recognition. Deloitte (2013a) is following this initiative, being a market leader in empowering women. This report will explain that leadership, motivation and human resource strategies have been used by Deloitte to effectively manage its employee’s behaviours through their vision of empowering women. This report will explain that culture in the Asian and Middle Eastern countries play a role in determining the strategies that a company can use. There will be an analysis critiquing the strategies that Deloitte have used, whether they have adopted the correct strategies and what strategies they should implement in the future.
“Leadership is the process by which a person exerts influence over other people and inspires, motivates and directs their activities to help achieve group or organisational goals” (Waddell, Jones & George, 2011, p. 172). Deloitte motivates and manages its employees through using the leadership theories of: House’s path goal theory; Vroom’s expectancy theory and transformational leaders.
House’s path goal theory supports servant leadership. This means that the leader is not looked at from a position of power but rather as a life coach providing information and support to employees (House, 1996). House’s Path goal theory entails: offering rewards for the achievement of performance…...

...Deloitte & Touches’ revolutionary implementation of Women’s Initiative, serves as one of the most transformational changes any company has ever seen. Deloitte thought women were leaving their company in order to fulfill their wifely and motherly duties. The truth of the matter is they left due to not being considered for partnership roles. When CEO Mike Cook at the time realized the significant impact it was having on the business, he implemented a two day intensive workshop for “the Retention and Advancement of Women”. Implementing Women’s Initiative led to a solid foundation surrounded by an environment full of support and development of not just women but men as well. In reading the Women’s Initiative Annual report I felt that women as buyers (WAB) serve as an advancement towards this movement. Currently women account for 85% of all consumer purchases. Deloitte recognized that women executives within the marketplace were increasing. Currently Deloitte is offering a WAB workshop to its professionals in order to better understand the way women process there purchasing decisions. Such examples of how women provided a trusting relationship amongst their clients by providing personal life stories and their way of paying close attention to detail. The WAB has provided other lessons as well for both men and women: 1. Women have a tendency to sit “ face to face” where are men seat beside themselves and consider their mail client “ Right-hand man” 2. Women...

Deloitte Case

...clients will help the consulting team better understanding the environment and the situation. Second, Maria should educate the client that even though she does not have the relevant experience in automotive manufacturing, her team does have a senior consultant, who had prior experience in the field and had been on three different engagements. Moreover, Maria should mention their team would use the larger resource from Deloitte to serve the client and provide the best suitable solution for SKS. Finally, Maria should point-out that her team’s goal is to help the foreman and SKS to achieve their goals. By aligning their goals, the Foreman will recognize he is also part of the consulting team and solidify their trust. Here is a script I come up for Maria Chen. “I recognize the fact that I do not have the hands-on experience like you do on the shop floor, and I will take any information and advice you give us into our project consideration. In addition, my team does have professionals with relevant experiences in the manufacturing industry and more resources from Deloitte Consulting Group ready to support the project. With our training and experiences, my team will have a big picture analysis and provide you and the rest of SKS a “re-engineered” production process that will allow your job to be better accomplished and reduce inventory cost at the same time....

In this time frame they have continued to revamp themselves to still remain relevant not only for their trade of accounting but developing its primary asset, their employees. Deloitte help set the standard after the crash with audits and regulations that led to more thorough accounting practices. Recognition for women and minorities is a huge initiative that has been driving a lot of their success into the 21st century. The investment in information technology would pay dividends to back up, store, and process electronic accounting data for Deloitte. The merger of the big 4 completion in 2002 the financial accounting industry will never be the same. PricewaterhouseCooper, Ernest & Young, KPMG, and Deloitte round out the big 4 audit firms. Deloitte is currently the largest of the big four by a narrow margin. All of the big four are among the top places to work (2009) nationally and in their respective headquarter locations. Since the 2000’s Deloitte has become an industry leader and model organization. The focus on recruiting the right talent to continue pushing the bar has been successful for Deloitte.

Deloitte Case Study

...case Deloitte & Touche Consulting Group was tasked to come in and consult with SKS Manufacturing, an auto supplier, in order to fix their inventory problems along with other issues the company was facing. Maria Chen would lead part of the team for her first time on this 12-week engagement, but would in occur some difficulties throughout the first 6 weeks of the project. The Deloitte team has a lot of work to do before the end of the engagement in order stabilize the company and prepare them for a more radical long term project that plans to “reengineer” their business process. Most of the responsibility for the slow start on the project is resting on Chen’s shoulders due to the choices she has made during the first half of this engagement. Why does SKS need Deloitte’s services? Would you have approached the improvement problem in the same way as Deloitte in terms of defining the problem and work planning? SKS needs Deloitte’s services for a number of reasons with the main influence being that they were having a cash flow problem, and they didn’t have the experience or manpower to address this problem themselves. As there were a number of unfinished components sitting between presses and “‘split-batches’” making the production shop “a little chaotic”, their whole process scheduling likely had issues. Additionally, they were having difficulty maintaining acceptable levels of customer service by being late to ship a significant proportion of the orders. Deloitte......

The New Term Loan has the same interest rate and same payment schedule as the Modified Debt (see above). The New Term Loan was extended to the Company and the proceeds were to be used (1) to pay fees to Bank A and expenses incurred with third parties (accounting legal advisors) in connection with the Restructuring, (2) to pay for a partial principal paydown of the Original Debt held by Bank A ($5 million), and (3) after payment of the amounts in (1) and (2) for working capital and other general corporate purposes permitted pursuant to the Modified Debt.

Deloitte & Touche Consulting Group

...The major problem in the Deloitte & Touche Consulting Group case was the lack of support that Maria Chen had during the first few weeks of the engagement at SKS Manufacturing. The cause of the problem with the engagement at SKS Manufacturing was multi-pronged. Maria Chen could have very easily become the sole scapegoat for blame. However, upon analyzing the underlying causes, Maria lacked 100% support from the two most senior members of the engagement team. First, David Hendry, Partner had just accepted additional responsibilities of bringing in new business. This meant that he would have competing demands with a less proactive focus and attention to SKS Manufacturing as a client during the initial engagement. Secondly, Annette Wattley-Davis, Senior Manager, assigned to the SKS Manufacturing engagement was working on another concurrent project in Dallas. She was in Texas for 2-3 days per week overseeing a project with another client with limited oversight to the SKS engagement during a lucrative period (first six weeks) of the engagement. Thirdly, Maria Chen was a fairly new consultant and inexperienced to lead a vague and difficult situation on her own. Her lack of experience coupled with the lack of support from David Hendry and Annette Wattley-Davis was detrimental and derailing. She was assigned specifically to lead and address the production scheduling processes and synchronize production operations with purchasing while working along side Ben Rohan. He was......
