The four characteristics of a successful organizational culture are adaptability, employee involvement, consistency, and clear vision. Adaptability is the willingness to respond to any change in the environment. Employee involvement is the use of employees to help make certain decisions so that they feel they are a part of the company. Consistency is holding values throughout the organization. Clear vision is when the organization has a set goal for the future and works to reach that goal every day. An organization that I believe follows these four characteristics is Google. By developing applications like Google Plus is an adaptive company which is one reason why Google is the leading search engine in the world. Having employees involved in decision is another key to Google success. Using the Google Plus example again when Google Plus first came out only employees could use it and were expected to give feedback about the user experience. This is a great way to keep employees involved and make them more motivated to work on the project. Google is consistence by having few solo offices and making everyone work as a team on project which helps everyone to promote strong values within the company. Google vision for the future is to become more than just a search engine. They plan on become a serious player in the mobile phone market by developing their android system. I believe you can be a successful culture if one of these areas is weak as long as you remain strong in the other three. However, I believe that Google show a lot of strength in all four categories. In conclusion adaptability, employee involvement, consistency, and clear vision are four essential characteristics of any successful organizational…...

...provide a scientific base for management to take timely and effective decisions to their problems. It tries to avoid the dangers from taking decisions merely by guessing or by using thumb rules. Management is the multidimensional and dynamic concept. It is multidimensional, because management problems and their solutions have consequences in several dimensions, such as human, economic social and political fields. As the manager operates his system in an environment, which will never remain static, hence is dynamic in nature. Hence any manager, while making decisions, consider all aspects in addition to economic aspect, so that his solution should be useful in all aspects. The general approach is to analyse the problem in economic terms and then implement the solution if it does not aggressive or violent to other aspects like human, social and political constraints. Management may be considered as the process of integrating the efforts of a purposeful group, or organisation, whose members have at least one common goal. You have studied various schools of management in your management science. Most important among them which uses scientific basis for decision making are: (i) The Decision theory or Decisional Management School and (ii) The Mathematical or Quantitative Measurement School.

There are various ways of describing management, so in this assignment the different definitions of management would be discussed and we would also see how most of the definitions are similar, along with their functions. We should consider management look at why management is very relevant. We should see how the various views of these management theorists are similar and also if they contrast. Management, as defined, “is the activity of getting things done with the aid of people and other resources efficiently and effectively, it is a feature of most human circumstances; domestic, social and political, as well as in formally established organisations”(David Boddy, 2008, ps.10). We human beings perform different activities everyday such as; eating, drinking, playing and they are related to management etc. According to Mary Parket Follet, “Management is the act of getting things done through people. So management is an activity because a manager accomplishes his task or objective with the help of others and also directs these people in order to obtain his objective, so management achieves its objectives through people, so management is quite useful to people. In management there are various activities that are carried out. These include informational activities, decisional activities and inter-personal activities and all these activities are to be done by a manager. Management......

Psychology 3200

...Chelsea Ferrell Ms. Dolzycki PSY 3200 November 28, 2012 Naturalistic Observation Upon observing the toddlers as well as the preschool room, I was able to observe the aspect of psychosocial development between the stages autonomy versus shame and initiative versus guilt. As defined and described in our text, Development Through Life, Erikson defines psychosocial development into eight different stages for each period of life. Within each stage presents a conflict between one’s individual ability and societal expectations or requirements. The first stage I observed was toddler aged children or autonomy versus shame and doubt. Autonomy being the positive pole within this stage of development; it is defined in the text as, the ability to behave independently, the ability to do actions on one’s own. Establishment for autonomy requires immense effort by the child as well as by the parent although the task may be rather exasperating. As a result of the establishment of autonomy, a child should have a strong sense of self-confidence as well as delight in the prospects of independence. Shame and doubt on the other hand is quite the opposite. It is the failure of mastering toddlerhood. Continuous discouragement and harsh and repetitive criticism can cause a staggering sense of shame and self-doubt thus creating the negative aspect of psychosocial development in toddlerhood. In order to avoid shame, children may choose to not participate in new activities because they......

Functions of Management Paper

...MGT/312 Functions of Management Paper November 3, 2014 Homero Martinez In the early 1900s there was a director of a coal mine named Henri Fayol who wrote a book about management, in which he set forth to discuss his five distinctive functions of managing. The book, “Administration Industrielle et Generale,” detailed the original management functions. From these original details, the process school of management was born. Management courses still use Fayol’s ideas to teach management to business students. ‘Fayol originally set forth five management functions, but management book authors have condensed them to four: planning, organizing, leading and controlling. The fifth function was staffing.’ (Norman, 2014). The four functions of management that we use today are Planning, Organizing, Leading and Controlling, minus the emphasis on staffing. Planning is the first managerial function; in this step a manager would create a comprehensive action plan with end goals in mind. the second step is organizing, in which the manager will organize employee resources, such as schedules and shifts. Directing, or Leading is the third step, this includes, managing tasks such as communicating, encouraging and reassuring employees or team members to complete goals. Lastly, we have Controlling, this is the final step and deals with monitoring the performance of the organization to ensure the ultimate goals are being met. In this the final data is gathered that will then indicate to the......

Die Universität St. Gallen, Hochschule für Wirtschafts-, Rechts- und Sozialwissenschaften (HSG), gestattet hiermit die Drucklegung der vorliegenden Dissertation, ohne damit zu den darin ausgesprochenen Anschauungen Stellung zu nehmen. St. Gallen, den 17. November 2005 Der Rektor: Prof. Erst Mohr, PhD Vorwort Als die vorliegende Arbeit ihren Anfang nahm, war das Ziel klar abgesteckt: Die umfangreichen Erfahrungen des Autors im Bereich des erfolgreichen Managements von Kundenbeziehungen auf nicht profitorientierte Organisationen anzuwenden. Bereits im Rahmen der ersten Recherchen kamen allerdings Zweifel auf – fand sich doch schnell eine Vielzahl von Quellen, die sich mit unterschiedlichen Aspekten des Marketing von NPO befassen, darunter auch einige umfassende Werke zum Thema Kundenbindung. Das Ziel, einen neuen und auch einigermaßen nutzbringenden Beitrag zu leisten, wäre in diesem Kontext nur zu verfehlen gewesen. Ebenfalls verfügbar ist zahlreiche Literatur zur Organisation und zum Management von NPO. Was hingegen überraschte, war das fast vollständige Fehlen von Publikationen, die sich ganzheitlich mit der strategischen Ausrichtung derartiger Organisationen befassen. Dies haben auch in den im Laufe dieses Projektes durchgeführten Interviews mit verschiedenen NPOs in Deutschland und der Schweiz bestätigt. Angesichts der Tatsache, daß sich diese zunehmend mit strategischen Fragen auseinandersetzen müssen, besteht hier ein klares Defizit an......

...four sources of taxable income, the Company concluded that its deferred income tax assets are more likely than not to be realized. In evaluating the likelihood of utilizing the Company’s net federal and state deferred tax assets, the significant relevant factors that the Company considered are: (1) its recent history and forecasted profitability; (2) growth in the U.S. and global economies; and (3) future impact of taxable temporary differences. Although the Company was not in a three-year cumulative loss position at December 31, 2014, management concluded that the low level of cumulative pre-tax income, coupled with the Company’s history of operating losses resulted in a determination that a valuation allowance was still necessary. We considered past profitability and future expectations of profitability to determine whether it is more likely than not that we will generate sufficient taxable income to realize our net deferred tax assets. Management placed significant weight on past performance (i.e., losses or near break-even results in 2009 to 2013) as it is more objectively verifiable than projections of future taxable income. However, during 2015, the Company’s pre-tax profit of $4.2 billion benefited from lower oil prices and improved efficiency that resulted in significant taxable income. Additionally, based upon current projection of future earnings, the Company evaluated the NOLs expiration periods and change in ownership limitations under Section 382 of the......
