Summary:
The video illustrates to us the details about the Walmart’s supply chain. It explains the organization’s central computer system and its immeasurable distribution centers. It also covers what makes Walmart so successful and what gives them the competitive edge over other regular organizations.
Walmart’s central computer system is the world’s second largest computer system, only smaller than the computer system in the pentagon. This computer system tracks each item sold at every individual Walmart nation wide. This permits Walmart to track what things are constantly sold the most at each location, which helps them decide how every individual area should be stocked. For example, if camouflage items are being sold more in North Carolina stores then in California stores then they will increase the stock of camouflage items in North Carolina rather than to that of the California stores.
This data additionally transfers to the organization's distribution center , where a large number of things are put away and shipped across the country. These distribution centers have supply chains that are running every minute of every day. They are run and organized to a precise science so everything runs easily. At the point when an order rolls in from a store, they find the product in the warehouse, put it on the conveyor belt and after that it is put on a particular truck that takes the item to the store.

Discussion: As an MBA student, this video is exceptionally fascinating for me. You can truly see the points of interest and how mind boggling the methodology of dealing with a whole organization is. This video demonstrates the importance of the of a decent management system. For this situation it is Walmart's Central computer system. Without this system, Walmart would be totally unorganized and would not have the capacity to supply their stores with the correct…...

...For example, consider the SV for each of the following three shareholders, Miss Rapid, Mr Medium and Miss Undecided, who each invested £10,000 on 1 January 20X6 in Spacemobile Ltd which pays a dividend of £500 on these shares on 31 December each year. Miss Rapid sold her shares on 31 December 20X7. Mr Medium sold his on 31 December 20X9, whereas Miss Undecided could not decide what to do with her shares. The SV for each shareholder is as follows: Shareholder Date acquired 1.1.20X6 1.1.20X6 1.1.20X6 Investment at cost 10,000 10,000 10,000 Dividends amount (total) 1,000 2,000 2,000 Date of disposal 31.12.20X7 31.12.20X9 Undecided Sale proceeds 11,000 15,000 IRR% Miss Rapid Mr Medium Miss Undecided 10%* 15% * ((500 × 9091) + (11,500 × 8265)) − 10,000 = 0 We can see that Miss Rapid achieved a shareholder value of 10% on her shares and Mr Medium, by holding until 31.12.20X9, achieved an increased capital gain raising the SV to 15%. We do not have the information as to how Miss Rapid invested from 1.1.20X8 and so we cannot evaluate her decision – it depends on the subsequent investment and the economic value added by that new company. 28.7.2 Total shareholder return Miss Undecided has a notional SV at 31.12.20X9 of 15% as calculated for Mr Medium. However, this has not been realised and, if the share price changed the following day, the SV would be different. The notional 15% calculated for Miss Undecided is referred to as the total shareholder return (TSR) – it takes......

...Mr. Dewy Good, As per my contract to provide an implementation safety program for your company, the following paper has been prepared to illustrate, in detail, the steps that I have determined to be necessary to develop a progressive health and safety management system. Geared to your knowledge and interest in the “Alberta Partnership Program”, I will provide specific guidance on what needs to be done, and in what order. Here are the key issues that need to be addresses; • Company Health and Safety Statement • Company Responsibility and Obligations • Hazard Identification and Task Analysis • Workplace Inspections • Worker Training and Competency Training • Incident/Near Miss Reporting • PPE • Incentive Program The first order of business is to establish a written mission statement acknowledging your commitment to health and safety. A mission statement is crucial in order to create and maintain a safety culture within the company. Commitment to and enforcement of safety standards by managers at all levels is essential in making health and safety part of our day-to-day business practice. Without a large emphasis on this commitment, health and safety activities are usually incomplete, inadequate, or ill-performed. To ensure the quality of our company’s safety policies, our health and safety program is a cooperative effort among management, and employees. Be advised this mission statement is for your approval, and can be amended if need be. MISSION STATEMENT: XYZ......

...Nelson Mandela Biography Rolihlahla Mandela was born into the Madiba clan in the village of Mvezo, Transkei, on 18 July 1918. His mother was Nonqaphi Nosekeni and his father was Nkosi Mphakanyiswa Gadla Mandela, principal counsellor to the Acting King of the Thembu people, Jongintaba Dalindyebo. In 1930, when he was 12 years old, his father died and the young Rolihlahla became a ward of Jongintaba at the Great Place in Mqhekezweni.* Hearing the elders’ stories of his ancestors’ valour during the wars of resistance, he dreamed also of making his own contribution to the freedom struggle of his people. He attended primary school in Qunu where his teacher Miss Mdingane gave him the name Nelson, in accordance with the custom to give all school children “Christian” names. He completed his Junior Certificate at Clarkebury Boarding Institute and went on to Healdtown, a Wesleyan secondary school of some repute, where he matriculated. Nelson Mandela began his studies for a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University College of Fort Hare but did not complete the degree there as he was expelled for joining in a student protest. He completed his BA through the University of South Africa and went back to Fort Hare for his graduation in 1943. On his return to the Great Place at Mqhekezweni the King was furious and said if he didn’t return to Fort Hare he would arrange wives for him and his cousin Justice. They ran away to Johannesburg instead, arriving there in 1941....

Communication is used for giving information, obtaining information and exchanging ideas between two or more individuals. To make communication effective you must do more than simply pass on the information, it means involving and engaging the other person or people.

...this type of project then there may be additional costs associated with schedule overruns and additional resources. • Lack of resources This is a very high impact risk. If Geneva fails to assign necessary resources to the project then project failure may be eminent. • Scheduling conflicts The current schedule shows that 160 days (Jeffrey, 2007, p.19) are needed for system testing. From the perspective of a project start time in May, the schedule shows that testing must begin immediately; even before the design phase is complete. The schedule also allocates 127 days for project management, which infers that the two functions run back to back as opposed to concurrently. This scheduling conflict, if not mitigated, will cause the project to miss the target requirement of opening the Internet store before Christmas....

...Living through the war Dear diary, October 19, 1940 After 20 steps I had to stop. My breath became short, my heart pounded and my legs gave way. A shower of bombs hit the side of my house. The force of the blast threw me to the ground! There are streets being bombed right this minute; I’m scared. Mama and Papa told me that everything is going to be ok, but I’m still scared. They said that I have to be evacuated out of London soon; I have to go somewhere far away. I will miss them dearly and I’m sure they will miss me too. I’m only 13 but my mama can’t come with me, she said that Churchill our prime minister made up the rules. I have mixed thoughts about being evacuated; I am worried about the type of people I am going to stay with and whether they will care for me or not, however, I love the countryside as it is very peaceful and quiet unlike the streets of London!! I’m going to bed now, speak soon. Mary. Dear diary, November 1, 1940 From late last night until early this morning, I witnessed some indescribable events. Armed soldiers and police paraded the streets looking for Jews. Jews were taken from their houses and other peoples attics where they hid. All I could hear throughout the night were gunshots. Between 200-300 Jews have been killed already. If they weren’t killed, they were taken away as prisoners. Mama told me that they were being taken to concentration camps where they would work themselves to death. It was definitely not tranquil! The sky is always......

...Measles is a viral infection that is very contagious. Indarjit’s could have caught measles by being in contact with infected mucus or saliva. Measles is an airborne virus, if an infected person sneezes or coughs; they release the virus into the air. The virus can live on surfaces for several hours, so Indarjit could have also caught measles by touching an infected surface. Indarjit is susceptible to the infection because his mother decided not to give Indarjit the MMR vaccination. This is because of the link between the vaccination and autism. The reservoir for the infection is Indarjit’s body because it stores the infection. Measles is a transient flora because it only lives in the body and on a surface for a short period of time. Miss Alessandria Lopez has visited her GP complaining of itching and discomfort around her genital area. She has also noticed a whitish grey discharge. Alessandria’s infection is localised because the infection is only on one part of the body. Thrush is a yeast infection that is caused by a type of fungus that lives naturally around the vagina. Thrush can be developed through sexual contact with another human being. Wearing tight-fitting clothing and not washing your genital area properly may also increase your risk of developing thrush. It can also occur when taking certain contraceptives or antibiotics because antibiotics can get rid of friendly bacteria. The genital area is a good environment for fungal growth because it is warm......

...at the business levels. Occasionally, plans will be made at the functional level, to allow managers to specialize and to increase managerial accountability. Marketing, for example, may be charged with increasing awareness of Microsoft game consoles to 55% of the U.S. population or to increase the number of units of Microsoft Office sold. Finance may be charged with raising a given amount of capital at a given cost. Manufacturing may be charged with decreasing production costs by 5%. The firm needs to identify the business it is in. Here, a balance must be made so that the firm’s scope is not defined too narrowly or too broadly. A firm may define its goal very narrowly and then miss opportunities in the market place. For example, if Dell were to define itself only as a computer company, it might miss an opportunity to branch into PDAs or Internet service. Thus, they might instead define themselves as a provider of “information solutions.” A company should not define itself too broadly, however, since this may result in loss of focus. For example, a manufacturer of baking soda should probably not see itself as a manufacturer of all types of chemicals. Sometimes, companies can define themselves in terms of a customer need. For example, 3M sees itself as being in the business of making products whose surfaces are bonded together. This accounts for both Post-It notes and computer disks. A firm’s mission should generally include a discussion of the customers served(e.g.,......

...project in meeting the aims or hypothesis Our first research method was questionnaires. What was successful about it was we had a lot of teenagers within our college take part in it. We managed to collect enough data to prove that the majority of teenagers skip breakfast due to the fact that they are travelling to college. As well as this we search the Internet to find evidence that proves this. “He/she’s crunched for time” this statement shows us that teens either purposely wake up late or don’t have enough time to eat breakfast simply because they are travelling to college. I believe the main weakness would have to be that not enough teenagers gave an explanation as to why they don’t have breakfast at home; when they reach college they miss 15-20 minutes of their lesson time getting breakfast in the college canteen. Aside from this the questionnaire was successful as we collected the right data and some teens gave responses, which were similar to the ones on the Internet. Using the Internet had its flaws. Reason being, some of the information that was shown wasn’t irrelevant. In order to search for something specific it would have to be written into the search engine specifically. For example if I wrote ‘teenagers and breakfast before college’ what I would get is an explanation that has been researched before being placed on the net. To get the right information I would have to elaborate my question for example ‘what are the reasons for teenagers skipping/missing......

...the conversation, for example if you are speaking to a child patient and they have their parents with them, you need to include the child because they could feel left out. You should take role as the leader to encourage all participants to get involved and express their feeling freely, making sure they all take their turns and listening to each other’s responses. In a hospital setting you should preferably keep to a formal tone to make sure your patients knows the severity of their situation but also be able to speak informal to make the atmosphere less intimidating and also creating a comfortable relationship with your patients. If you are telling a patient they have cancer you should prepare what you are going to say because you can’t miss anything out or say something wrong or it could put their lives in danger or cause them more emotional trauma. When it’s time for the next person to speak, usually the person lowers their voice, it’s important for all participants to recognise a pattern, such as making eye contact to the next speaker, this enables them to take turns talking instead of all talking at once.

...functional advantages that are specifically tied to the targeted emotions, as well as a technical platform that lends credibility and authenticity to the functional claims. Authority and expertise are critical. If a luxury strategy is well executed, consumers will quickly “ladder” from technical to functional to emotional benefits, responding so powerfully that they will break through traditional price barriers with higher levels of demand. Pet lovers buy gourmet pet food because it is technically superior (it has added nutrients and organic ingredients), functionally reliable (experts attest to its health values), and emotionally satisfying (they are taking care of a “family member”). One word of caution: most traditional market research will miss the emotional underpinnings of new-luxury success, and conventional product testing will just as often undermine the linkages between the emotional, functional, and technical benefit layers. To generate insight, innovative players typically spend more time in the market and conduct one-on-one interviews with their core customers—in their homes, at retail sites, in their domains. 4. Escalate innovation, elevate quality, and deliver a flawless experience. The middle market is rich in opportunity, but it is also unstable. Consumers trade down as well as up.
