Collaboration Software Evaluation and Analysis as Virtual

Words: 1260 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 98790860

Collaboration Software Evaluation and Analysis

As virtual teams become pervasive in many enterprises globally, the need for stable, secure and scalable collaboration platforms becomes more and more important to organizations achieving complex strategic goals and objectives. Virtual teams can often coordinate and collaborate using personal productivity applications, yet on more complex tasks requiring orchestration of complex workflows and sharing dozens of documents at the same time, Microsoft Outlook and e-mail break down and don't deliver the level of functionality necessary. Given the rapid rise in virtual teams in conjunction with the lack of support in many personal productivity software applications for intensive collaboration an entirely new area of enterprise software has emerged. Customer elationship Management (CM) systems with social networking functionality (Social CM), enterprise content management, knowledge management, groupware, portals and Web Services have all emerged as proven solutions to the continual challenge of communication and collaboration in virtual teams…… [Read More]

International Financial Reporting Standards

Words: 951 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 79010483

International Financial eporting Standards

IFS and Canada

Canada was one of the first prominent nations involved in the North American Free Trade Agreement to consider switching their financial reporting to the International Financial eporting Standards. For years, Canada had been under the pressure of the United States to adopt a system aligned with the GAAP. Still, growing opportunities across the globe made the adoption of the IFS in Canada a better option. It was announced in early 2008 that the move was going to be made in Canada. Canada officially adopted the IFS standards in January of 2011 (PWC, 2014). Actually, the IFS standards were quite similar to the already existing Canadian GAAP standards. Thus the transition, for most businesses, was not extremely different than what they had encountered in the past.

The country made the official decision to adopt the IFS over their own GAAP system came in a…… [Read More]

Black's Law Dictionary 1991 Child

Words: 5968 Length: 18 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 76815004



Moreover, it is unclear whether Jim has attempted to reestablish any meaningful contact with his children; rather, his entire focus has been on becoming a better person. While there is certainly nothing wrong with that goal in and of itself (it is, after all, a universal human quality), he appears to have pursued this goal to the total exclusion of making any substantive reparations to his family. Finally, it is interesting that Jim somehow feels compelled to tell others -- including potential employers -- about his criminal past and his current status in treatment, as if this ongoing commitment to all-out honesty somehow absolves him from a deceptive and duplicitous history, or at least helps to explain it (which it does if one is interested). According to Jim, "Entering into society again was very difficult. I had lost my business, my friends and was now divorced. After leaving jail, I…… [Read More]

Constructing Reality The Case of

Words: 615 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 63939389

It is an interesting topic, as Enron has often been studied in terms of the complications it posed for the economy, investors, and accounting law, but not so much as an organizational breakdown of communications (at least not so far as I am aware). In terms of the length of your project, you have posed many questions to answer, but your hypothesis seems concentrated enough to keep you on 'track.' Also, all of your questions have a single focus, which is good. Selecting one theorist and theory to apply to a very complicated situation seems ideal, given the extensive literature that is available on Enron.

Of course, because your paper is just in the draft stages it is hard to critique your writing style, but your outline seems comprehensive, organized, and detailed. The only questions to ask are if you will be able to obtain enough information on the interior,…… [Read More]

Technological Collaboration Tools in Business Settings Are

Words: 1617 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 42332610

Technological Collaboration

Collaboration tools in business settings are becoming more and more important. About 20% of people who work via technology already say they have never met their bosses (CNET, 2011). Yet, for the most part, many business or project teams seeking collaboration methods do so without fully understanding the resources and their implications (osen, 2010). Most organizations use such services for virtual meetings or document sharing, not for the more complex capabilities opportunities.

In determining what kinds of collaboration systems issues may be appropriate, it is important to look at the size of one's business and the size of one's need. Even though fully integrated systems are now coming online, many business still likely need only piecemeal elements, though they want them to be services that will compatible in the future. In fact, companies tend to place their collaborative activities next to technologies to more or less see what…… [Read More]

Visual Rhetoric

Bandit

Rhetoric is the use of language to persuade others, and visual rhetoric therefore represents the use of images to perform the same function. e are constantly exposed to visual rhetoric when we read magazines, watch TV, or travel down a city street, in the form advertisements for products and services. These ads are created by corporations, non-profits, and the government, and their purpose is to provide information and/or persuade you, the audience, to pay attention and possibly become interested in their products or services. The non-profit called "The Shelter Pet Project" represents a collaborative effort between the U.S. Humane Society, Maddie's Fund, and the Ad Council in order to promote pet adoption from shelters as the first choice for prospective pet owners ("Campaign fact sheet"). The most visible product of this collaboration is the production of attractive and well-designed ads that present an argument for a mutually-beneficial…… [Read More]

This approach to planning supply chains through collaborative planning, forecasting and replenishment (CPF) is highly dependent on collaborative applications and platforms that support analytics and advanced approaches to creating dashboards and balanced scored cards of sup[ply chain performance and value created (Huberman, Wilkinson, 2010).

The reliance on collaborative applications and platforms that are also capable of streamlining complex manufacturing processes, dropping costs per unit costs from each unit produced due to greater efficiencies being achieved with intelligence, is also an area of best practices beginning to emerge from collaborative systems in manufacturing (osenzweig, 2009). These systems have the ability to align information and knowledge to specific steps in a lean manufacturing process, further accelerating a company to its objectives of producing higher quality, lower cost products (osenzweig, 2009). This integration of lean manufacturing concepts and knowledge management is most often found in highly complex, specialized manufacturing operations. A prime example…… [Read More]
