The Case of the Mexican Crazy Quilt: Linderman Industries
1. Was Linderman Industries' adoption of project organization an appropriate one for getting the Mexican subsidiary started?
2. In consideration of Robert Linderman's letting the division managers know the project manager would be asking for some of their key people, why would Conway have any difficulty in getting the ones he wanted?
3. Would you expect that many people would turn down a chance to join a project organization, as Bert Mill did?
4. Why would Conway take his problem with the engineering vice president to Linderman and have it resolved in his favor, yet back down in two disputes with the manufacturing vice president?
5. What could Linderman Industries have done to assure good jobs for the people coming off Project Mexicano, including Carl Conway, the project manager?

...9 JOBS a) Talk about job opportunities in Slovakia and abroad, compare them b) What are your preferences in the future ? (family, work) c) Talk about retaired people in Slovakia ( living, pension lifestyle, health) About 12 percent of population in Slovakia are unemployed. In some places (for example : Orava, Čadca) it´s 24 percent because there are small companies and these companies offer job for few people. In Orava are the largest companies : Johnson Controls, MTS, Panasonic or Hydac but these companies aren´t big as some companies in some big cities, which means that only some people have job there. People must look for some job abroad. The most popular places for work among slovak people are : the Czech republik, Austria, England and nowadays Norway,too. People have been working in this country for a two weeks and than they go home. A second reason,why people work abroad is, that the work abroad is better paid. They do the same work as in our country, but they have a higher salary. Work abroad has lots of advantages. For example, when you work as au-pair you can know some habits in the family where you work. You can make new friends and when you want to learn some foreign language, the work abroad and live abroad is the best way how to do it. Because you have to use language in this country.

...the product is what it is selling for, but if I pay so much for the item I would like to have it around for a while. If I am able to have it around for a while then it’s worth the money. Clothes are like car, wanting something reliable to get to A to B, like warm than cold. So positioning the product as a product that stands its claim from advertisement to the closet or where ever they are placed is a claim that I would use to sell the product. If I can do this then a lot would not care about pricing, and place to get the items or products. Positioning something is hard because to many factors to worry about and choosing the right strategy to up lift the brand or product is important. I can see being worried about the price of a product or where to get the product but the product itself is what people want and people want a reliable product. The demographics these days are changing like the market changes. Being that demographics revolve around people because people make up the market as well, there are many views of this description or outlook of what the possibilities are allowing the market to become. When people are young they are usually were bought items, things they want and most the time it’s something that is new or what everybody seem to have, or just may have their own interest in a certain item.

...Often we hear the phrase, "promote from within" as one of the best ways to expand the talent pool. Yet sometimes firms do not post internal openings for which anyone may apply.  Instead, they select someone to promote. Why might a firm do this and what drawbacks could result? On the other hand, some firms prefer to look outside the company to increase the talent pool, including posting information on social networking sites.  What are the benefits of using social media for recruitment? A firm might want to “promote from within” because the company wants to attract their employees. Every ones want to work for a company where they will have the opportunities of promotion. This will encourage people to work harder because they want to go up on that ladder of employment. Also, “promote from with in” helps company save time and money on hiring any position. Company will not have to pay the advertising fee, won’t have to read a bunch of applications, and won’t have to interview lots of people. Another plus thing is when you promote someone from with in, that person already knows well about the company and how things work, so they don’t have to spend a lot of times to learn about the company culture and stuffs, which may lowers their performance for the first couple weeks like employees that are hired from outside of the company might. So “promote from with in is a great way to strengthen your company with out having to spend too much to find the perfect candidates. However,......

...system, the government plays a major role, as the government would be the ones to dispense the proper resources that the residents need, “ from food to health care”, to assure everyone gets the assistance. If we look back at the 2010 earthquake that took place in Haiti, the socialist system would be the best by using the socialist system, responding to the needs of the residents who were struck by this devastating earthquake, no matter what, everyone would get the proper aid and support that is needed. Fortunately, for the residents struck by the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, a socialist system was used. This was an immense help for the residents and also the country of Haiti. By using the socialist system, the residents of Haiti were able to receive the proper supplies equally; no one person got more than the next. By doing this, it ensured that all residents of Haiti were treated equally and no one person was more important than another. As this would of probably have caused more issues then the ones that were already upon the residents. It also allowed the government to do its job effectively and efficiently. By letting each individual or family get the resources it needed as quickly as possible. Some of the treatments the Haitians received were; food, clothing, shelter, and for those who needed it, financial help. The Law of supply and demand is as follows: “ If there is a low supply and a high demand, the price will be high. The greater the supply and the lower the......

The Job

...In 1985, I took my first job on Capitol Hill working for newly elected Sen. Mitch McConnell. I started in the mailroom, back when most people sent handwritten letters to their senators and some poor staffer had to open and sort them. At 22, I thought I would never get a better or more important job. Thirty years later, I’m again working for McConnell, now as his state director back in Kentucky. But I’ve never forgotten that first job in Washington. Between then and now, I’ve interviewed dozens of 22-year-olds for entry-level positions, all wanting to make their mark. And I’ve learned a few key things that separate the wheat from the chaff. Story Continued Below So you want to get your first job on Capitol Hill? Here’s my advice. Start with whomever you know in D.C. If you think hard enough, you probably know someone who lives in D.C. or is connected to it. It could be a former Hill staffer, a lobbyist or a distant relative. No matter who it is, just go see them. Ask them whom they know — you never know who somebody’s next door neighbor is (like a chief of staff on the Hill looking to hire a new staff assistant). In Washington, personal networking, whether a handshake or lunch, still trumps social networking on Facebook and LinkedIn. Follow up on every lead. Pick a side already. During the course of an interview, I want to know whose team you’re on and why. I would cringe when 22-year-olds told me they wanted to solve the world’s problems, then wondered aloud, “Why......

...kpbhs"No one wants to die," Steve Jobs said in his now-famous 2005 commencement address at Stanford. "Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. "And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It is life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new." These wise words came out of Jobs just a year after he got up close and personal with the notion of death, upon learning in 2004 he had a rare form of pancreatic cancer. On Wednesday, seven years later, he finally arrived at that "destination we all share." Above all, the loss of Steve Jobs is incredibly sad. But amid the raw, jumbled feelings in these early moments after hearing of his death, the other emotion that keeps surfacing is this sense of utter unfairness. More up his sleeve At 56, Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple, had given the world so much more than most people could ever dream - and he surely had so much more up his sleeve. And that is incredibly disappointing to consider. The secret to his success, the key to why his death is being mourned more like a pop star than a CEO and the biggest reason his untimely passing is profoundly unfair, are all the same: His products were polished reflections of an obsession with the customer experience. The consistent imprint across the products he touched over four decades - from the Macintosh, to the string......

On the Job

...Reflection Paper On The Job: Toys or People On the job is a movie based on actual events that have transpired within the slums of manila. It is a story about two convicted men who are hired to kill off politicians, business men, high ranking officers and other people who are on the target list of their boss. The movie shows how corruption or the lust of power has filled the inner business of Philippines. On the POV of Tatang we see how he chose to kill off “Gerald Anderson” because he lost the reason to return to society and that “Gerald” was not ready to be a hired killer. We see in the movie that if people of high ranks feel threatened they would hire these two to kill them off so that the status quo would still be in their favor. When humans feel a threat they would eradicate it without even considering the entirety of the other. We see how life is a speck of dust in the eyes of those who have power over the many. In their POV how people objectify life as if it has no meaning or how puny it is towards them. Like how they can manipulate people to do their bidding, it is like they are treating them like toy or pawns in their game. On the side of the hired killers they are also the victims of the said corruption of the land. We can see that they need the money to support their family or love ones but this is due to the corruption which is the scarcity of supply and the “lack” of money the government has. There is a domino or a symmetrical effect in our society,......

...Highly Regulated Over recent years, military- derived sonar has been found to be linked with cetacean strandings. This and the general increase of noise in the ocean within the last century, which is known to have increased with the introduction of propeller ship engines (Jasny 12), has largely impacted the oceanic ecosystem. If such strong correlations have been scientifically determined, why has the United States Navy failed to adjust its practices in favor of saving marine organisms? How much evidence will suffice for the United States government to take necessary strides towards keeping our oceans safe? It is with this in mind that I claim that the U.S. Navy’s use of active sonar, whether it be mid or low frequency, needs to be more highly regulated. Therefore, government officials need to use their political power to support the marine species being affected by these anthropogenic noises. My first sub claim supporting my driving thesis will pertain to the negative impact sonar activity has on marine organisms. I will begin with the introduction of the importance of sound to the ocean’s mammals, the most prominent subjects of mid and low frequency sonar. This is an imperative aspect of this issue because the survival of every single one of these marine animals is based concretely in their specialized abilities to hear through the oceanic medium. With this I will present the scientifically supported fact that hearing in marine animals became established for an......

("Computer and Information Technology," 2015). As the job market for IT grows so does the demand for workers. There are many different type of jobs in this industry but the few that stuck out for me are computer programmer, web developer, and software developer. What I am looking to do with a IT degree is to be able to create, so these three career choices are perfect for me.

...Brian Kelly Eng. 100 Teamwork’s Throughout all of high school I was lucky enough to not have to worry about getting a job. I never had a job my whole life. I have tried working at grocery stores before, but that kind of job wasn’t for me. As all of this was going through my head I was nervous about my first job that I had just gotten. I got hired to be a chef at an indoor sports venue in Northborough called Teamwork’s. The drive to teamwork’s is only 5 minutes away from my house so I didn’t have much time to think about what I was getting myself into. I have never cooked anything before and of course they schedule my first night during the Celtics opening game of the season vs. the Miami Heat. Pulling into the parking lot I made sure I was early so that I would make a good first impression. After I clocked in I made my way into the kitchen where I heard loud rap music. There was no one in the French fry smelling kitchen when I first walked in. I was a little confused to why I was hearing Method man and Redman blasting out of the speakers because no one was around. I began to take off my jacket when one of the older employees came out of the freezer with a large box of pizza dough. He introduced himself as Gary and told me that he was going to be training me tonight. It was Six O’clock and the Celtics game started at seven. We had an Hour to pre make pizzas and store them in the freezer. Gary started to show me how to make the pizzas. The dough was......
