Takeaway 15.1
1. Why do recruiters place so much emphasis on the communication skills of job candidates?
Effective communication and networking skills are valuable assets in the workplace. Most jobs require the ability to communicate ideas and reasoning to peers, partners, or customers. These skills help employees process and share information, as well as build social capital. Skills for effectively communicating are also required to build trust and good collaborative working relationships.
Recruiters look for candidates with excellent face-to-face verbal language skills, writing skills, presentation skills, and the general ability to convey thoughts, ideas, suggestions, and opinions in a professional manner. The ability to communicate clearly prevents errors from happening on the job or messages being misunderstood. Recruiters also look for candidates with good communications skills because they are characteristics found in effective leaders.

2. Can you describe a work situation where it’s okay to accept less communication effectiveness in order to gain communication efficiency?
When it comes to communication in the workplace, there is a big difference between being effective and being efficient. Sending an email or text message to someone is extremely efficient but it is not the most effective means of communicating. These forms of communication often result in messages getting lost, ignored and sometimes misunderstood. If the message being delivered is anything important, the most effective form of communication is face-to-face conversation.
Efficient communication is time limited, brief, and pointed. It gets the message across in as few words as possible. On the other hand, effective communication is usually not brief. It involves two-way communication. Effective interpersonal communication includes a lot of verification and validation.…...

Flaherty BUS 334 August 4th, 2013 1. Assume you are Joan Beal. Prepare a list of all the options, and give the advantages and disadvantages of each. It appears The McGrew Company has been utilizing the indirect exporting phase as its primary business model in Brazil. Rather than simply exporting its products to Brazilian distributers and selling it for a markup, McGrew could exercise different options. OPTIONS * Direct Exporting Direct exporting would allow for The McGrew Company to handle its own sales and marketing within the country of Brazil. This would enable manufacturing to continue to in its current location while also cutting mark-up costs from the local distributors. Employees within the current manufacturing location may handle the documentation such as billing, shipping, and other activities while a team in Brazil will work in a local parent-type company. This local Brazilian company will perform as a distributor however it will be owned and operated by the manufacture directly. By working this option you allow for the opportunity to cut cost without moving your manufacturing capital to a foreign country. * Turnkey Project This opportunity is facilitated by a contractor who will basically build a business from the ground up within the country of choice, in this case,......

My essay consider issues of Luxembourg relations with countries from NAFTA trade block and how Luxembourg can take advantage of technological development in the contexts of market globalisation. Luxembourg’s economy is small, stable and high-income. Luxembourg’s economic success has made it one of the wealthiest countries in the world, with a per capita income that routinely ranks in the world’s top three. Canada is a member of NAFTA and it’s relations with Luxemourg are strong. Canada and Luxembourg have developed a partnership based on shared values and ongoing political dialogue on major international issues.

Jaldi Case Study

...Jaldi (Business Case Study) When looking at the proposal for Jaldi, a variety of arguments arise, both for the proposal and against it. The arguments for include the fact that "Sultan Food" is already a successful business, meaning that the Indian takeaways would be successful, just because of the established brand name. Another reason for this proposal, would include the fact that the takeaway market has increased from £2.003m in 2011, to £2.104m in 2013, meaning that there is a great chance to expand for businesses such as "Sultan Food" and increase their levels of profitability. However, there are also points against this proposal, which include the fact that even though the market value of takeaways has increased, the value of Indian takeaway has decreased, however the data for this is a little unclear, as the years provided in the case study do not match up. Nevertheless, there is another argument against the proposal which is the fact that "Jaldi" takeaways will have reheated food, and that will not go down well with it's customers, as reheated food can be purchased in ASDA or Tesco, and customers would much rather prefer freshly cooked food. To begin with, I think that opening takeaways for "Sultan Food" would be a good idea. "Sultan Food" industries aims their food at 'affluent professionals' who are ready to pay high prices for high quality food. One of their key objectives is to receive high levels of customer satisfaction, and the business has managed to......

Case Study: Chasseur Chickens Pty Ltd

...marketing of value-added product. The production process There are two stages in chicken meat processing. The first stage is primary processing, where the birds are slaughtered, plucked, cleaned, cooled and either filleted, cut into pieces or left whole. The raw meat is then frozen or chilled, packaged and sent to distributors or on to the next stage – further processing. In this second stage, chicken meat is further processed by coating, crumbing, partial or complete cooking, or otherwise adding value. The industry is vertically integrated, including the production/processing of chicken meat for distribution through a variety of retail outlets such as supermarkets and specialist chicken shops, as well as through commercial outlets such as takeaway shops and restaurants. Approximately 88% of poultry produced in Australia is chicken, of which 90% (of this chicken meat) is produced by specialist chicken farms. Appendix 1 contains a detailed description of the production process. Two types of chickens are used in the industry:  Broilers –between 25 and 65 days old and used to produce chicken meat.  Boilers – reared specifically for laying eggs and not their meat; slaughtered at the end of their laying life (approximately 65 weeks). Note that this meat is only used in further processed products (i.e. chicken nuggets) and is not commercially available for sale at the retail level. Processors do not generally have competencies in both chicken meat processing and hen growing......

Identify a Gap in the Market and Three Suitable Locations for a Business to Open Up in.

...has been selected to be set up in Peterborough is a Takeaway that will be predominately Indian but will also incorporate foods such as traditional fish and chips and more as there is a huge demand for Indian Takeaways in certain areas within Peterborough, and also the incorporation of traditional fish and chips will attract more customers. Furthermore Takeaways are relatively easy and quick to set up and although they are quite expensive to set up they are also highly beneficial in the long run because Takeaway’s often become stable quickly which makes it easier for them to breakeven, especially when there is a shortage of them within the city, which in this case there is. The purpose of this report is to find what the most suitable location for the Takeaway will be, and the factors to consider when finding a location for a small business. The foundation to ensure a business is thriving and successful is its location. Refer to appendix 1, figures 1 and 2 to see the 9 Indian Takeaway that are located in Peterborough and through figure 2 you can eliminate some locations from the city easily as you can clearly see some areas of Peterborough have poor infrastructures and are quite secluded areas of Peterborough which would not be ideal for a Takeaway business as a Takeaway business relies on the passing trade and high population to be successful, your business should engage with passers-by and create footfall into your takeaway. As shown in appendix 1, figures 3 and 4......

Heir: Taking a Chinese Company Global

...For the case of “Hair: Taking a Chinese Company Global”, the first takeaway is that in order to enter a foreign market, having licensing agreement and setting up joint ventures are the best things to do in order that the company could successfully imitate the practices. The second takeaway is that quality is not something that could ensure your supreme sustainability in the market. It may enable a company to charge premium price for a period of time, but no one could guarantee if the industry would impose any stringent regulations that could fundamentally weaken one’s competitive advantage like quality. However, Hair establishing a complicated distribution channel could be a wise strategy that successfully impose a tight barrier for foreign entry into its market. The third takeaway is that being the first-mover in localizing its products to cater the foreigner market could help Hair, a Chinese brand suffering from such deeply-rooted bad image of low-quality, succeed in the more-developed countries like the US where lots of giants are already occupying a significant amount of market share. For the case of “Responding to the Wii”, the most important takeaway is the concept of two-sided model and its pricing strategy. First, the presentation makes me realize that there are quite a number of real life examples belonging to the two-sided market like operating system, recruiting sites etc because there is an indirect network effect in which the increase in “consumer”......

Case Study 15.1

...Case Study 15.1: Rotating Leaders: Orpheus Orchestra This week’s case study is look into what makes the Orpheus Orchestra and the leadership methods are so unique. This group of musicians are unique in the fact that they do not have a conductor to lead them. They lead themselves. With this method being so unique a lot of top companies have hired them to go into their organization and how they accomplish what they do with no one leader. This group came about by a few professional musicians that were looking for something different then the standard conductor lead symphony The founder of Orpheus that the musicians needed to be able to express themselves where in traditional settings they are only doing as they were told. So he selected a few people in the beginning to try his idea out. The biggest key to being successful is having members that know how to give and take with ideas and criticism. The dynamics of making this group work took a lot of work. In fact it took twice as many rehearsals to work out all the particulars that a conductor would normal dictate. The one risk the group had using a method of anyone giving ideas how to play the piece was that they would never land on a clear set direction for playing the piece. So the founder came up with the idea of coming up with small groups, which the members changed often. This group’s members would change often, but they would practice together to work out the particulars then present them to the group......

How Differences Are Made and Remade on a Street

...I would like to write about my favourite street in Manchester, and about some differences as i understood it from Making Social Live DVD, it is Wilmslow Street in Rusholme, this street is mainly full of takeaways and restaurants and few newsagents, jewllery shops, internet cafes and call centres, in the morning time the street is full of crowded buses as students go to their universities, whereas in relation to pedestrians the street is very quiet, interestingly, in the evening time the picture is the other way round, as you could notice that the street is full of pedestrians, on the other hand the buses are nearly empty. There is an internet cafe and a call centre shop, i used to visit 10 years ago, at that time this Internet Cafe was very busy with customers especially students aged 20 -30, sometimes i found it hard to get a computer in the Cafe, when i had to wait a little bit. Nowadays this internet cafe is a bit quiet, one of the reasons i think that because the students used to use the internet only for study purpose, but after a decade the Internet became very popular, and its very difficult to imagine life without it, the internet covers every single side of our life, and you can also relay on the Net nearly in every aspect of your life, from reading your local newspaper and ordering your food and booking your flight ticket or checking the weather or even contact with friends and family or making new friends via facebook and tweeter. Moreover when we know that...
