... marketing has become the important tool in any business strategy. Today I am going to tell you one of the new marketing concepts that have been practised by various companies over the world: we call it value co-creation or consumer generated value. I believe most of the local or small business owners may not heard of this at all, I will try to make my explanation simple. Before I start, let me tell you a story of my own experience. During my birthday last year, I received a birthday cake from my friend that full with my favourite cartoon character Winnie, The Pooh miniatures. It is designed in a way that you would not be able to find it in any stores out there. Out of curiosity, I browsed through their facebook page and found out the owner has used a very interesting slogan: You dream it, we bake it. Unlike the traditional way of select and pay in most of the bakery shops, in this case where rather than rely on the creativity of bakery shop, my friend is able to share his idea, experience and expectation on how he wants the cake to be looked like. In other words, he has participated in a new product development and co-created value with the shop owner. The whole process is less about transaction and more about interaction. A simple way of understanding it is value co-creation is the ability of the company and consumer to create additional value for each other. It is not about what you can provide to your customer but is about what your customer wants or wishes. Consumers......

...CO-EDUCATION “CO-EDUCATION AND PEOPLE PERCEPTION AND NEED OF STUDENT’S COUNSELING” ABSTRACT: Education is the fundamental right of every individual. Today, those societies have excelled in every field of life where man and woman are provided equal opportunities for education. It is common believed that for the development of adolescents, segregated schooling system is better than co-education. While co-education plays an important in the development of both male and female. By studying in the same institution together, male and female acquire maturity through interaction and sharing of personal experiences at an early age than in separate institution. But there is a somewhat persistent belief amongst many parents that single-sex is best, especially for girls. Secondary school students do not know how to control their feelings and emotions and how to release their tension. They, at this stage, usually feel attraction in opposite gender, act highly emotional in different matters and no proper guidance is provided to them. Counseling is a wonderful modern invention. The term ‘school counselling’ broadly refers to the process of meeting the needs of students in several areas , such as academics, society, career, and personal. The purpose of the study is to change the people perceptions about coeducation and to develop a knowledge about behavior changes and need of counseling in students. This is a deductive kind of research as it is designed to test the hypothesis and getting...

...Co-Dependents Anonymous Lessons On Living: Biblical Perspectives Co-Dependents anonymous or (CoDA) is an organization that was originally founded in 1986 by a man and women names Ken and Mary (Co-Dependents Anonymous, 1995). Ken and Mary were originally from Phoenix, Arizona and were part of an AA type fellowship for their codependent behaviors.  The sole purpose of this program is to follow a similar step as a typical AA meeting would. The program follows 12 steps in which a person admits his or her problems and eventually confronts their issues and turn their relationship into one that is healthy. It is designed to help individuals feel that they are co-dependent or possibly in an unhealthy relationship. Although this program is not setup to cure individuals, its objective is to give the individual a chance to accept that they have a problem, then face it, and find a way to rectify it. Until this can happen the person may remain unhappy and could not only be hurting themselves, but hurting those who matter most in their lives. After conducting my research on co-dependency, I chose to attend a twelve-step group meeting on co-dependency. The meeting was held at the city public library on a Wednesday evening by the organization, Co-Dependency Anonymous. I was expecting to walk into a room with chairs formed in a circle, but there were individual desks set up facing a white board. I took a seat towards the back of the room. The meeting was being held by a woman by the......

... 1. WHAT IS CO-OPERATION? Co-operation is the reason why the team exist, to work together to the same end and towards the same objectives. This is the involvement of several entities who work helping each other to achieve a common goal. The co-operation goes through effective communication to be able to clearly describe what needs to be done. Indeed, communication is the key to collaboration, create a connexion with the team and interact equally with all the members. 2. HOW IT APPLIES IN LEADERSHIP? “Quality leadership … is directly related and dependent on the effective communication of clear and concise values.” Simply the Best –Workplace in Australia. Hull & Read 2003 This reference shows that there is no more importance than having effective and strong values. In co-operation, the leader has to delegate his ideas to all his team in order to work all together. If a leader can’t relate his values to his team, the risk his not working towards the same goal. That is the reason why communication is important for the collaboration of everyone. The role of the leader is also to delegate a positive energy within the group, encourage the team, create a good and friendly work environment, all that help to keep productivity in the co-production. Indeed, the morale is linked to positivity and a positive behaviour from the leader will lead his team to do so. Moreover, being able to inspire a team is great for focusing on the goals. “These values also influenced the way...

...Essay Introduction: Co-Education means the education of boys and girls together in the same institution and at the same time. In India, it has recently become common. In the recent past religious leaders and the people of conservative views did not favor the idea. They were even against the education of women, because they were not in favor of liberty and equality to be granted to women. But now times have changed. Co-education in India: Co-education is not a new thing for us. In the good old days when Sanskrit used to be the mother tongue in India and the Ashram were the seats of learning, co-education was widely practiced. In the Hindu scriptures, old records and legends, we find a number of examples which show that co-education was prevalent then. The practice continued till the advent of Muslim rule in India. With the Muslim rule came the degradation of women. The ‘Purdha’ system led to the discouragement of female education. Co-education in the West: In Europe Co-education is only of recent origin. Oxford and Cambridge universities kept their door tightly shut against woman till recently. But after the First World War, Co-education had tremendous rise in Europe and America. In America women have now begun to outnumber man in the school and colleges. Criticism in Favor and Against Co-education: For the very beginning powerful voices have been raised against this speedy march of co-education. Stephen Leacock, an eminent American educationist declares with emphasis,......

...workers to reassert some control over their working day. He argues that these unofficial shop floor activities can be seen as a series of games employees play. These are games concerned with beating the system, finding the angles, working out the dodges or discovering the loopholes—in other words, ‘making out’. However, Burawoy argue that economic gain is not the sole motivator for making out. Rather, he suggests that a range of interlinking motives is at play: The reduction of fatigue The desire to pass time The relief of boredom The social and psychological rewards of making out on a tough job The social stigma and frustration of failing to ‘making out’ on an easy job He describes the informal rules and practices that he and his co-workers engaged in as they joined the game of making out. Yet, in so doing they were adapting to the alienation tendencies in the work; they were manipulating the management’s rules for their own ends, but they were not fundamentally challenging the rules or undermining management’s prerogative to set the rules. In fact, through playing the game of making out they were consenting to the formal rules and structures imposed by management. Now let us turn to the next survival strategy: workplace fiddling In one-way or another, everyone is on the fiddle. It might take a direct form, such as stealing supplies from the workplace or artificially inflating expense claims. It can also be indirect, such as doing repairs to personal items......

Case Study Bain & Company

...Case Study – Organizational Development of Bain & Company July 2, 2012 Organizational Development of Bain & Company Bain & Co. Inc. (“Bain”) is a consulting corporation, established by Bill Bain and six former professionals from Boston Consulting Group (BCG) in 1973 to develop a strategy implementation that was markedly different from industry norms (Ormiston, 1990). According to Bill Bain, there were four problems he wanted to fix in the traditional consulting process specifically 1) short-term duration of projects with the report seen as the end product; 2) recommendations not supported by relevant data; 3) no follow-through on given recommendations and 4) performance metrics (i.e., Results of the recommendations) were mostly internal (peer reviews) not independent measures (Ormiston, 1990). Bain`s approach was to make a commitment to one company per sector/industry – refusing to work for competitors. In the 1990s, this strategy aided Bain in developing a deeper level of involvement with a limited number of clients. Sometimes, a customer had as many as fifty professionals working on all aspects of the business analysis (Harvard Business School Journal, 1990, pp. 95-96). The company de-emphasized the hype around the ‘report’, focusing instead on helping the client successfully execute policy recommendations. The results of these recommendations are judged by independent matrices such as the growth (or decline) of client`s stock prices when......
