1.1 Background Information Kenya’s economy is heavily dependent on Agriculture with almost 75% of Kenyans earning from farming. Agriculture contributes over 30% of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and usually brings in over 50% of foreign currency earnings. It provides raw materials for Kenya’s agro-industries which accounts for about 70% of all its industrial production. The dairy industry has been in existence for decades and Kenya being the second largest dairy sector in sub-Sahara Africa. The industry has evolved through three markets periods.
First for the period up to 1969, it operated as an open market with various independent dairies being active market players.
Secondly between 1969 and 1992 and primarily due to rationalization of the dairy industry by the Government a monopolistic market situation was created. The government gave the policy guidelines, set prices, determined the players in the industry and set the market rules. The Kenya Cooperative Creameries (KCC) was the only player in the marketing of milk and dairy products.
Thirdly from 1992 onwards the government liberalized the industry. Currently the industry is regulated by the Kenya Dairy Board which was established under section 4 of the Dairy Industry Act Cap.336 of the laws of Kenya. The board is managed by a Board of Directors with a chairman appointed by the ministry of cooperative. Nominees of the board are appointed from selection from District Agricultural Committees (DACs), Provincial Agricultural Boards (PABs) and the Central Agricultural Board (CAB).The managing Director is responsible for the day to day running of the board.

To manage a business you have to have a sound direction in what expertise you would like to tackle. Project management can play an integral role in implementing these plans and attaining these goals. This system is “one of the integral parts of the contemporary management system due to its ability to make sure that the goals set in the beginning of a project correspond exactly to the goals that were achieved later on.

...exports go through the south as the North has been closed by the Sudan. Internal Political South Sudan’s political problems are highly interconnected with problems from Neighboring states. The rebels in Northern Uganda frequently cross into S. Sudan to kill, pillage and loot from traders and citizens. They cross back to Northern Uganda and do the same. Kenya is still healing from the last political upheaval in which thousands of people were massacred after a contested election. Internal political problems spread all over the country. Moreover the government is not doing much to improve on the political situation. These problems are going to affect the distribution of construction projects due to instability and security problems.

Project Definition Form 1.1 Project Title Biaño’s Pizzaderia Inventory Management System 1.2 Project Context On March 27, 2007, the friends and neighbors of Alberto Biaño in Cebu City were treated to the first serving of Mr. Biaño's famous pizza.  This core group became his first loyal customers, as news spread far and wide of the pizza with the great homemade taste that everyone could afford.  Inspired by the resounding success of his initial offering, Alberto Biaño continued to develop his recipes to improve his pizzas' quality and taste until a perfect blend of crispy dough and aromatic sauce was achieved for everyone to enjoy. Another innovation was the concept of the “pizzaderia”, which  combined the words “pizza” and “carenderia”, to describe the little streetside eateries where Biaño’’s delicious but affordable pizzas were enjoyed by  people from all walks of life. Whether for birthdays, anniversaries, celebrations and get-togethers, everyone wanted to make a Biaño’s pizza part of their special treat. From that little pizzaderia in Mabolo, Mr. Biaño soon branched out to Capitol, Tabunok, USC Main, Mandaue and Mactan, making Biaño's pizza a truly well-loved snack in Cebu.  Realizing the potential for such great value in an affordable price, many franchisers from different places all over the country such as Cagayan de Oro, Oroquieta City, Butuan soon became part of the Biaño's Pizzaderia family 1.3 Statement of the Problem As of now, Biano’s Pizzaderia only...

The city's motto "Wheatheart of Oklahoma" and the Native American translation of the towns name "Tonkawa" meaning "they all stay together" was the inspiration behind the design. The park contains pavers and art panels depicting local culture and history. In less than one years’ time fund in excess of $150,000.00 were raised through donations, grants, and in-kind services. The park is utilized for a variety of community activities including educational presentations to high school and college students, fundraising events, an annual Harvest Walk, Valentine's Day Walk and weddings ("Heart in the Park Labyrinth", n.d). Community projects such as this can be successful when elected officials come together with residents. Collaboration amongst various team members has proven to be an effective tool when utilized to accomplish common goals that may not have been achievable on their own (Swindell & Hilvert, 2014). When different partners come together it is important to ensure that all team players are on the same page. There are seven characteristics that can influence the success in achieving goals in a community project; assessing funds available, contract......

...ECON545: Project 2—Macroeconomic Analysis Situation D Brian Banks 8/24/2014 Uncle Dan has a 100-acre corn farm. After 30 years of growing corn, he wishes to leave that commodity’s market and enter a more profitable market instead. He is thinking of subdividing his land and building homes and shops. He reckons he could make a good profit by selling the homes and renting the shops. Uncle Dan has several costs and risk factors to consider in making the switch. The best way to approach this scenario requires researching the economy in terms of GDP growth rate, interest rates, level of unemployment, the business cycle, fiscal policy, monetary policy, international trade, and demographics from a macroeconomics perspective. The macroeconomic factors to be considered from the view of the organization are: GDP growth rate, Business cycle, Fiscal policy and level of unemployment, monetary policy and interest rates, International trade, and Demographics. Business Cycles, Unemployment, Inflation, International - Comparative Advantage, Exchange Rates, Trade, Monetary Policy and Interest Rates, and Fiscal Policy and Unemployment are the variables that are critical in addressing the issue. The United States has one of the most diversified and most technologically advanced economies in the world.

...reduce (but not necessarily eliminate) the risk of that complication occurring.” NCBI (2002) A study by the University of Washington School of Medicine provides a graph that makes these three terms easier to understand and what is or is not counted as a medical error. All “potential AEs” (near misses) and preventable AEs are considered medical errors whereas only the “non-preventable AEs” were not considered medical errors: University of Washington School of Medicine Additionally, the term “adverse event” is included in almost every article discussing medical errors and since both medical errors and adverse events can and/or do cause harm to patients [and because everywhere you look there is a different definition of the two], this paper will use them interchangeably under the larger umbrella of medical errors, specifying between them when necessary. And then we’ll take a look at some solutions that could be widely implemented with as little impact on operations as possible when it comes to reducing the number of medical errors. With so many dying of medical errors every year it will take not just one solution, but an amalgamation of solutions to effectively lower the annual number of deaths. The short answer as to why there are so many deaths is that so many things can go wrong: wrong drug, wrong dose, misuse of medical equipment, miscommunication, hurried/overworked/tired staff…and a myriad of other reasons. And with approximately 1.2 billion ambulatory care......

...Is Antarctica Melting? 01.12.10 The continent of Antarctica has been losing more than 100 cubic kilometers (24 cubic miles) of ice per year since 2002. Larger Image There has been lots of talk lately about Antarctica and whether or not the continent's giant ice sheet is melting. One new paper 1, which states there’s less surface melting recently than in past years, has been cited as "proof" that there’s no global warming. Other evidence that the amount of sea ice around Antarctica seems to be increasing slightly 2-4 is being used in the same way. But both of these data points are misleading. Gravity data collected from space using NASA's Grace satellite show that Antarctica has been losing more than a hundred cubic kilometers (24 cubic miles) of ice each year since 2002. The latest data reveal that Antarctica is losing ice at an accelerating rate, too. How is it possible for surface melting to decrease, but for the continent to lose mass anyway? The answer boils down to the fact that ice can flow without melting. The Antarctic ice sheet. East Antarctica is much higher in elevation than West Antarctica. Larger Image Two-thirds of Antarctica is a high, cold desert. Known as East Antarctica, this section has an average altitude of about 2 kilometer (1.2 miles), higher than the American Colorado Plateau. There is a continent about the size of Australia underneath all this ice; the ice sheet sitting on top averages at a little over 2 kilometer (1.2 miles) thick. If all......

...Project Management Paper MGT 437 October 24, 2011 Michael Koma Project Management Paper Before anyone can understand what it is to manage a project, he or she must first understand what a project is and how it goes through its lifecycle. This paper will help the reader understand not only what a project is, but also how each phase of the lifecycle comes into play. It will conclude by explaining to the reader why it is important for organizations to use project management to accomplish tasks. What is a project? A project can be simply explained as a set of tasks that need to be accomplished for a particular goal. A little more complicated explanation is that a project is a set of tasks that exist to produce deliverables. So, what is it that makes up a project or how does an organization determine they have a project to complete? There are several questions that if they are answered correctly show an organization that they do have a project. For example, do they have something that has a specific objective to be completed within certain specifications or do they have something that needs to be completed with a defined start and end date. If a company comes to determine that they do have a project, then they must set up a project manager and a team. The project manager will have the task of ensuring that the phases of the project lifecycle are completed within the time frame that the company has given him or her. There are four basic phases to...

"You Decide" Project Paper

...You Decide - Project Paper You Decide - Project Paper Raymond Burke is an economic consultant who believes that the nation’s interest rate should be lowered in order to stimulate the economy. Unfortunately, I must disagree with Burke. With a presence of the overabundance of cheap houses and a lack of demand will not enable the nation to recover with better interest rates. The majority of people that are capable of working but are not working are at a serious incline. The average person does not attempt to borrow money that can’t be re-paid. With the unemployment rate projected to increase, I don’t see a line of people ready to borrow money when people are without income to pay it back. My recommendation is to leave the interest rate alone, don’t increase it or decrease it. Kathy Lee’s view on the budget deficit has an emphasis on the government implementing budget cuts instead of raising taxes. The budget deficit is a serious concern; this is why I must agree with Kathy’s view. My recommendation is to agree with Kathy’s view. The reason is that people have already cut back on their spending. The awful result of higher taxes makes an already slow economy turn into a halt. Patricia Lopez is a Federal Reserve consultant makes two excellent points: to leave interest rates alone and furthermore, increasing money supply through voluntary investments (by the sale of bonds), always goes over much better that feeling increased......
