The Need for Structure We were all a kid at one point in our lives. Most of us had the opportunity to live our childhood with a carefree attitude, while others were not so lucky. I was one of the few who were forced to grow up at such a young age. However, growing up at a young age was not all that bad; actually, it was wonderful. On account of my parents being absent frequently due to work, I taught myself a couple of basic skills that would one day be very beneficial to my life as an adult such as, cooking, cleaning, problem solving, and most importantly, how to follow a schedule. By all means, I did not perfect these skills in the beginning; no one does. I can assure you that conquering such skills takes time and patience. You see, back then I did not understand how knowing all of these things would help me in the future, but I came to realize how appreciative I was once I stepped foot in college. I knew that once I started college, mommy and daddy would not be there to hold my hand every step of the way. Many of us want our children to have a good future, but with this generation lacking basic independence skills how will they ever be able to cope with the pressures of the world? To ensure that future offspring are prepared for life’s unpredictable situations, we need to act fast and start teaching our children the basic responsibilities of being independent.
It all starts when a child has entered the real world; they are in an adaptive state of mind where the child experiences things for the first time such as, seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and feeling. This should be the time to start putting their capabilities to the test because even though they have just been exposed to life, they are also learning to adapt. As a parent,…...

The Need for Change

...organizations today, change is important to allow companies to not only survive, but stay competitive in their markets. Major corporations have failed due to the inability to recognize and respond to the need for change. With the amount of competition in each and every market out there, every company has to take advantage of every possible advantage they can get. Change, if recognized early enough, can not only keep a company competitive but can also give companies an advantage by seeing a possible opportunity that has not been seen by other companies in the same market. Company Overview The company that will be discussed in this paper is Storer Equipment Company Inc.

Organizational Structure

...Organizational Structure MGT/230 Organizational Structure Organizational structure is a necessary component for operating a business efficiently. There are five main types of organizational structure, departmental, functional, regional, product, and matrix. “Organizations are set up in specific ways to accomplish different goals. The structure of an organization can help or hinder its progress toward accomplishing these goals” (Writing ,2013, p.1) Each of these structures has components that contribute to the success of a company. Departmental and functional structure is defined as organizational structure divided and or grouped into areas of expertise, according to the specific function of managing thereby ensuring that a company operates more efficiently. (Tutorialspoint, 2013, p. 25). Grace Centers of Hope is a nonprofit organization based in Pontiac, Michigan. This organization is divided into several departments to handle different functions. Regional or geographical organizational structure is designed to provided goods or services to a vast number of individuals, all over the country and also globally. This structure is designed to meet the specific needs of a specific group of people based on their specific location.

Need for Change

...Task 2 As a starting point the sponsor(s) need to address the following questions Why do we need to change; “To capture the increasing market demand for new generation engines and reduce the business reliance on an old, declining product with a single customer base”. What are we going to change; “Removal of the RB211 overhaul service and withdrawl from component repair activities as a by-product of the RB211” Can the benefits be measured; “Yes the analysis shows that the above would free up enough labour hours to serve the market increase in the desired products. This in turn leads to there being no requirement to reduce headcount as a function of the RB211 removal”. What happens if we don’t move; “ The Wales business will lose the opportunity for growth product gains to other GE shops or competitor businesses, combined with an on-going reliance on a declining product to support a large headcount, effectively threatening the future security of the business”. Identification of change manager(s). This position is pivotal if the initiative is to succeed. Ideally this person will be from the ranks of the senior leadership, carrying both industry and organizational knowledge and respect. Alternatively the company may look to bring an external source from another GE business to oversea and manage the change program. This has previously been used ( including large project teams who led the single site consolidation in 2002 appendix 3) although consideration must be......

Organizational Structure

...Organizational Structure Organizational Structure The company that I work for is a construction company, just as with most construction companies, the organizational structure of the company is a matrix organizational structure. The way that the hierarchical levels are in this company is; the owner/CEO occupies the highest position. The next position down the vertical structure is a shared level of management, which is occupied by a project manager, and a super intendant. Each project has their own project manager and super intendant that report to the owner/CEO. The company that I work for is a decentralized organization, where “decision making occurs at the level of the people who are most directly affected and have the most intimate knowledge about the problem” (Bateman & Snell, 2011). The reason that this is the most effective for this company is, because of the need in the construction industry for decisions made in a timely manner, in order for the project at hand to effectively and efficiently get done. In some instances it would not be conducive to go through the process of the decision going up the vertical structure. The company that I work for employs two different trades- sheet metal workers, and carpenters- this is the reason that if the company were organized with the functional structure or divisional structure, it would be less efficient. In the matrix structure, there is only one project manager, and one super intendant for each project. All of......

His Needs, Her Needs

...His Needs, Her Needs: Building An Affair-Proof Marriage by Willard F. Harley, Jr. A Paper Submitted to Dr. Brown In Partial Fulfillment Of the Requirements for the Course Preventing Ministry Failure LEAD 625 By Adrian Mack 27 January 2014 CONTENTS SUMMARY 2 CRITIQUE 3 EVALUATION 4 Summary In His Needs, Her Needs, Willard F. Harley, Jr. is not solely talking about affairs, but is elaborating on the underlying themes of communication and selflessness. In the first chapter, Harley explains that when a person explains their relationship problems to someone external to the relationship, it can easily lead to an affair because a bond forms with this new person and he or she understands the needs that one yearns for in their life, time and again able to meet the needs if an affair begins (Harley 20). During his tenure counseling couples, Dr. Harley has recognized that men and women each have unique preferences in regards to their needs, and often differing perspectives on how the relationship would be “perfect.” Harley conceptualizes this with his analogy of a bank. Hence, communication, both talking and listening about problems and needs, is not the only necessary means to improve a relationship, but one must be willing to make the relationship work by considering not only themselves, but their significant other. For Harley, it is not about whether or not one is “skilled” at fulfilling their significant other’s needs or......

Needs

...Information need is an individual or group's desire to locate and obtain information to satisfy a conscious or unconscious need. The ‘information’ and ‘need’ in ‘information need’ are an inseparable interconnection. Needs and interests call forth information. The objectives of studying information needs are: 1. The explanation of observed phenomena of information use or expressed need; 2. The prediction of instances of information uses; 3. The control and thereby improvement of the utilization of information manipulation of essentials conditions. A system is a set of interrelated but separate parts working towards a common purpose. The arrangement must be orderly and there must be proper communication facilitating interaction between the elements and finally this interaction should lead to achieve a common goal. System approach to management views the organization as a unified, purposeful system composed of interrelated parts. This approach also gives the manager to see the organization as a whole and as a part of the larger external environment. System oriented manager would make decisions only after they have identified impact of these decisions on all other departments and the entire organization. They must intertwine their department with the total organization and communicate with all other departments, employees and with each other. * Characteristics: Systems have structure, defined by parts and their composition; * Systems have behavior,......

In some instances both countries policies could read the same, yet be interpreted differently. In an effort to keep all entities involved headed in the same direction there has to be a clear communication and regulatory rules to ensure the partnership remains stable. Conversely, they say, companies have to give employees the "freedom" that's essential to innovate. Organizational Structure Raymond Miles and Charles Snow, authors of ,"Organizational Strategy, Structure, and Process" help provide the strategy typology appropriate for outcome desired. The particular typology appropriate for Office Depot and Reliance Retail is the "Analyzer". This is the description of a company that is purposely more innovative in their product marketing initiatives. The Analyzer has a watchful eye yet is willing to take risks in order to succeed. The other three typologies are, " Prospector", "Reactor", and "Defender". The Prospector is described as a company who prospers by stimulating and meeting new product opportunities. The Reactor is the company who vacillate in an approach to their environment . and ultimately fail. The Defender prosper th...

Hierarchy of Needs

...biological and social needs that integrates many motivational concepts. According to Maslow individual needs are set in a hierarchy, and everyone must satisfy their basic needs before they can satisfy their higher needs. The hierarchy is portrayed as a pyramid beginning with physiological needs at the bottom and self-actualization at the top. The 'Hierarchy of Needs' theory has four different levels before one can come to full self-actualizing. Beginning with the most basic, the needs are physiological, safety, love and belonging, esteem and lastly, self-actualization. Physiological needs refer to the literal requirements for human survival, such as breathing, food, water, sleep, and metabolic activities. Safety needs are all things providing humans with a sense of security, such as protection from the elements, financial stability and personal health. Furthermore, love and belonging refers to the interpersonal relationship, in which relationships with family, friends, lovers, and others are drawn; providing humans with a sense of acceptance and attachments. Esteem refers to the need to be respected and accepted and, most importantly, the need of self-respect. People develop their esteem as they are recognized by others, gaining a certain level of social status and thus build their own self-respect. The last is about the self-actualization, in which an individual realizes his or her potentials. Because the human brain is driven by a basic instinct to survive, this need......

The Need for Bureaucracy

...| The Need for Bureaucracy | | | | | | Name: Rob Lee TA: Vanessa Dolishny Student #: 250535352 Date: 2010-03-17 Throughout this course, inequality has been a topic that has been brought up in each sociological category. Some of these categories include religion, race and ethnicity, culture, education, and organizations and work. Karl Marx’s perspective of capitalist domination, which relates to each of these categories, suggests that the main cause of conflict in society is inequality, and this inequality brings about disadvantages to workers and benefits to the owners of capital. Although this perspective is backed by strong examples in today’s society, such as the decline in skilled labour leading to greater inequality between the proletariat (workers) and the bourgeoisie (capital owners), it spends too much time on blaming the structure of the system for making inequalities worse, without taking into consideration how much worse these inequalities would be today if the system were not structured the way it is. Therefore, when criticizing systems such as government, and its ability to organize and manage society, it is essential to recognize that without a government in place, and if society were to be adhocratic, the world would be chaotic and not nearly as efficient as it would be if a government were established. The government plays key roles in not only the stabilization of society, but also in helping it prosper in the long run. ......

It looks at how he was treated in the court of law and whether his convictions were justly completed. The film the hurricane in my opinion showed a great deal of injustice due to the choices of the jurors, judges and police force. Injustice was highly pursed in the film the hurricane because of racial discrimination against him this was justified in the scene when the majority of the population referred to him and other black people as “coloured” this automatically lets us know that they saw him as if he wasn’t a human being.
