GLO BU Marketing Plans

Marketing trategy -- Glo Bus

Level 5 Leadership Which Is Harder to

Words: 3609 Length: 12 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 76809048

Level 5 Leadership: Which is harder to cultivate within yourself: humility or will?

Level 5 leadership involves what Collins (2001) calls the "paradoxical blend of humility and will," (p. 13). As a result, Level 5 leaders are "a study in duality," as they exhibit other binaries, such as being both humble and fearless; both modest and willful (Collins, 2001). The complexity of human character makes it possible to hold two seemingly disparate qualities in check at any one time, knowing exactly when, how, and why to turn on one binary (like humility) versus the other. Collins expands upon the concept of Level 5 leadership in the opening sections of From Good to Great because Level 5 leadership is central to effectively motivating others and promoting the values of an organization.

Both humility and will are difficult qualities to perfect. All leaders possess both humility and will to a greater or…… [Read More]

College English Argument

Words: 1314 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 17611806

Mandatory Drug Testing

In certain professional occupations, mandatory drug testing is not only a good idea, it is very important to public safety. There are good arguments on both sides as to whether all professional athletes should be tested for drugs -- or whether high school athletes should be tested. And in the business world, one could argue that drug testing is an invasion of privacy, and unless an employee is acting irresponsibly and clearly is ineffective, there is no good reason to require regular (or even sporadic) drug testing. But this paper takes the position that employees in certain professions -- airline pilots, bus drivers and heavy equipment operators -- should accept that mandatory drug testing is part of the job. The public safety is vastly more important than concerns over personal privacy issues, hence, the need for mandatory drug testing.

The Literature on Mandatory Drug Testing -- Airline…… [Read More]

Product Strategy Differentiation

Glo-Bus Games

Product strategy: Differentiation

Differentiation is an important part of Glo-Bus Games strategy regarding the marketing of its cameras. The product strategy is currently divided into two groups: entry level cameras for new users and cameras with multiple features for more experienced users. The entry-level cameras are at a lower price point because they offer fewer product capabilities and less sophisticated designs. Not only is the technology less complex, thus supporting a lower price point, but it is less likely to intimidate new users with more accessible design features.

However, the camera brand is not solely directed at new users. The overall product strategy is to entice people to use the brand when they are just beginning to explore photography as a hobby and then gradually move on to the more expensive and complex designs. For more advanced users, the product offers more features and the target user is…… [Read More]

Transition Experiences for Students with Disabilities

Several years ago I was privileged to teach students with cognitive disabilities in Korea. I taught in an after school program for high school students. As I thought about the subjects that were being taught, I realized that no provisions were made to provide opportunities for the students to interact within the community setting.

Even though most of the students were going to work in a sheltered workshop after graduation, a need existed for them to learn "community skills" such as paying for things with their own money, using public transportation, and interacting with various residents of the neighborhood. It was there that my strong belief that cognitively impaired students should have chances to engage in as many "normal" activities as possible as long as the students were not confused or upset by the situation or were subject to negative comments, etc. from others.…… [Read More]

Criminal Justice Although Jeff's Confession

If this is indeed the case, Leach is within his rights to appeal for an overturn of his conviction. The Fourth Amendment protects travellers from unwarranted police searches, which appears to be what happened in this case.

The Fourth Amendment then protects the rights of individuals to reasonable expectation of privacy. While Archibald Leach voluntarily yielded his luggage for investigation, the search itself was not conducted in a legal manner if there was neither warrant, reasonable suspicion or probable cause. The case does not mention any of these, based upon which the conclusion can be that Leach has sound grounds for appeal.

As we neared the house, we could see a small crowd and approximately half a dozen police cars. When we walked in my wife came running up to me and as I hugged her I scanned the room. Two police officers were talking to Jan. Three officers were talking to my parents and in-laws who had come over as soon as Sara had called. Several other officers were snooping around various rooms, including Emily's, I guess looking for clues and/or evidence.

The design theory and methodology of digital signage encompass the many aspects of advertising design. They are bright, often lit with bold colors, and the screens can scroll, show animations, and quickly change from one scene to another. The displays catch the travelers' eye, keep them entertained, and have been shown to even cut down on the perceived wait times for travelers (Editors). These signs can have voice recognition systems or touch screens to engage the viewer even more, and they can contain information, such as ticket prices, routes, arrival and departure times, and much more, making public transportation travel a little more entertaining and engaging for people like me that use the system all the time (Cluett 106). They are also easy to update, and content design is graphic design at its best, it uses bright graphics and easy-to-read text that will engage just about any viewer. Contrast, daring…… [Read More]

Project Management

The project parameters involved in overhauling a luxury tour bus, like any complex project, are bound by the limitations of scope, schedule, and cost. Also known as the triple constraint, a project's size, deadline for completion, and budgetary boundaries work in tandem so that a project manager cannot make alterations to one without necessarily affecting the others. Because controlling a project's scope is integral to effectively managing the other aspects of the triple constraint, many project managers prefer to develop a detailed Statement of Work (SOW) to clearly define every task necessary for project completion (Schwalbe, 2011). The following report details the impact of these limiting factors on the current luxury tour bus renovation project by examining each element of the triple constraint individually, while an SOW has been provided to describe the processes used throughout the life of the project.

Clearly, the disadvantages of conducting interviews to interpret history is that often, memories become cloudy and/or lost, and people, as they age, remember things differently. Therefore, some of these memories could be faulty, or at least flawed, and yet, there is no mention of that in the book. There are also quotes in the interviews, and it is hard to imagine that anyone could remember exact words after even 10, 15, or 20 years after the incidents occurred. That means that some of these interviews, although they certainly mean well, could be inconsistent, and that takes away some of the historic notability of this book.

In conclusion, this is a very emotional and personal look into the Civil ights Movement and how it began, grew, and helped obtain equal rights for Black Americans. The author interviewed some of the most influential people in the Civil ights Movement, and their memories…… [Read More]

As has been mentioned throughout this thesis, the entire aspect of mass customization as it relates to the development of a stable quote-to-order process throughout manufacturing is critical. In this specific area is where many manufacturers face the dilemma of being entirely project-based in their manufacturing and business strategy approach or move more towards functional manufacturing with the exception being mass customization and a more fluid, agile, quote-to-order process.

Performance Measurement for Project Management

Every enterprise which employs a diverse and multifaceted workforce to facilitate organization, production, and service, from major international corporations to local community churches, utilizes a concept known as performance management to maximize their efficiency and effectiveness. The field of performance management has been defined by managerial researchers as a "strategic and integrated approach to increasing the effectiveness of companies by improving the performance of the people who work in them and by developing the capabilities of teams and individual contributors" (Armstrong and Baron, 1998), and the technique has been used since the 1970's by businesses seeking to improve their organizational results.

My organization is Miami-Dade Transit, for which I am a bus operator. The Transit system is an independent operating entity within the government of Miami-Dade County. Leadership of this company is typically appointed, and this was the case of the current Director, Ysela Llort. She was posted to the position at Transit in February 2012, after a career spanning many different units within the county, including Public Works, Aviation and Seaport, as well as an earlier role at Transit. Her background is diverse enough that she not only can effectively manage the transit system for one of the most highly-populated counties in the country but also that she can perform a role as liaison with the county, the government entity that funds and provides oversight for the Transit division. This paper will examine the leadership style of Ms. Llort, in the context of my experiences working there.

Dave attempts to give it a try, but being a constant talker, he finds it difficult to remain silent. He and a friend convince the entire fifth grade class to try the experiment. Despite a long-standing animosity, the boys and girls in the classroom form a bond during their periods of silence by trying to find other ways to communicate.

There are always real human problems that might prevent someone from making a deadline, including car trouble, sick children, and a plethora of other issues that might arise and that are completely uncontrollable. Though Kim could have made better choices in getting her paper in on time, Professor Freud should not have a policy that completely disregards an entire course's worth of performance for one deadline.

Philip, Arnold's friend, has the least amount of responsibility in this scenario. Cindy, Kim's friend, is also partially responsible for failing to take Kim home when she repeatedly asked. In addition, her husband bears a fair share of the responsibility for refusing to hand over the car keys. Phillip, however, was only involved in increasing Arnold's insecurities about his wife. Arnold could just as easily have trusted his wife, or spoken to her more honestly and calmly about his insecurities, but it was not…… [Read More]

Schools Today Are Under Pressure to Provide

Words: 1444 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 79904436

Schools today are under pressure to provide students with the maximum opportunity for as broad as possible an education. At the same time, the school environment and classroom are relatively safe and protected, but also restrictive in terms of insulating students from the world in general. To strike a balance between safety and learning, teachers often elect to include excursions beyond the boundaries of the school. These field trips are designed to provide students with a practical learning experience to supplement the information they are expected to internalize within the classroom. To maximize the positive effects of this experience, the Western Australian Department of Education has created a policy document to divulge the specific requirements for student safety during such trips.

This is then also the stated background of the policy, in that any risk factors related to excursions outside the school premises need to mitigated in such a way…… [Read More]

They may be quite good at meeting deadlines and have solid attention to detail yet they will not put their strengths to good use in order to truly invest in themselves or the company. These employees will understand the company's purpose and hedgehog concept but may not truly grasp how to apply it to the work that they do each day (i.e. How does making this copy contribute to the overall purpose of the company?). They may not be able to see how the job that they do ties into the big picture of what the company is striving to achieve.

Toddlerhood is the first major stage of childhood development when children are learning how to test their limits and stretch and grow as people by taking risks.

Long-Term Employees: Long-Term Employees, Sacred Cows?

There are those that believe that long-term employees become sacred cows of an organization. They have staying power not because of what they do but more because of who they know. Does this impact a corporation's bottom line? It can, but not in a positive way. A corporations ultimate success is dependent upon it's ability to hire and retain long-term employees that are great, competent and motivated outside of the function of the task at hand.

For a company to lead and excel in any industry it must hire the right kind of people for the job. These people are by nature self-motivated, skilled and naturally inquisitive and hard working. These are the type of employees that ultimately stay with a corporation for a long time.

Rosa's Ethics Ever Since December

Words: 1944 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 63676332

The most convincing interpretation might be that, as she contended, she did not foresee the consequences. Parks stated that "it was not a time for me to be planning to get arrested." (Reader 2005). So, if she was not considering the consequences, then she was not thinking rationally; if she was not thinking rationally, according to Aristotle, then she was not behaving virtuously. Since we should probably use Parks' own words as the best evidence, we should conclude that Aristotle would not consider her a particularly virtuous individual.

Confucius, alternatively, maintained that all human morality was held together by a single concept: ren, or natural humanistic love. Simply put, ren is a love and respect for all things human. To Confucius, a person can only achieve ren if they undergo an attainment of knowledge to the point where they reach a workable grasp of the place for each form of…… [Read More]

Problems and risks related to contracted a new company relate both to cost, safety measures and legal liability. The primary consideration is cost, as this is the major problem related to the issue mentioned above. The first requirement for the new company would then have to be a cost that is as close as possible to the price to date charged by Walkers Ausgas before the increase. Being a transport company, safety is also of utmost importance. Hence, it has to be ensured that the new company will deliver a service either of similar or higher quality than Walkers Ausgas. Pricing and quality therefore have to be in optimal balance in order to minimize the risk of legal liability.

Government of Western Australia Department of Education's Excursions: Off School Site Activities. The document describes the policies and procedures necessary for off school site activities.

Background of the Policy

It is recognized that off school site excursions have higher degrees of risk than being at the school. However, the Department of Education recognizes that off school site excursions can provide significant learning opportunities, so it does not want to eliminate them because of the risk. Therefore, it has promulgated regulations to minimize the risk during these excursions.

Purpose/Objective of My eport

The objective of this report is to provide a brief overview of the Department of Education's approach to excursions.

Analysis/Discussion

Managing Contention for Shared Resources on Multicore Processors

Words: 878 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 10952543

Managing Contention

"Contention for shared resources significantly impedes the efficient operation of multicore processors" (Fedorova, 2009). The authors of "Managing Contention for Shared Resources on Multicore Processors" (Fedorova, 2009) found that shared cache contention as well as prefetching hardware and memory interconnects were all responsible for performance degradation. After implementing a pain, sensitivity and intensity, model to test applications, the authors discovered that high miss rate applications must be kept apart and not co-scheduled on the same domain (memory). Therefore, the management of how the applications were scheduled by the scheduler would mitigate the performance degradation of the cache lines and the applications on the processors.

The authors built a prototype scheduler, called Distributed Intensity Online (DIO) that distributes intensive (high latest level cache (LLC) miss rates) after measuring online miss rates of the application. With the execution of eight different workloads for testing, the DIO improved workload performance by…… [Read More]

To the extent the program provides a means of access to mainstream financial services (as intended), it is likely to be extremely beneficial. The article does not provide sufficient information for readers to form an opinion as to whether the more detailed elements described are necessarily the best way to implement the program. One alternative mentioned by the author is to establish the accounts later rather than necessarily at birth. Likewise, there is insufficient information to allow an appraisal of other elements of practicality such as the exact amount of each account. In general, however, any means of assisting children born into poverty by increasing their access to mainstream financial services would seem to be a beneficial and worthwhile goal.

The route goes mostly through Hollywood and that area, serving a number of different neighborhoods along the way. The train is a fairly typical subway experience like I've had in many other cities. The car was half full at any given time, which I was expecting since it was an off-peak hour.

I saw a lot of different people along the way. The majority, arguably, were just ordinary people going to and from work, or their daily chores. They clearly came from a wide variety of backgrounds, and some ethnicities were fairly clear to identify while I would say that others were not as clear. People in LA come from all over the world, and I think that there was fairly broad representation of different groups on…… [Read More]

Erikson's Perspective on the Personality of Landon Carter

Words: 5028 Length: 14 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 30406685

Landon Carter's Character through

Erik Erikson's stages of development

Erik Erikson was an American developmental psychologist who was born in Germany and went to postulate eight stages of psychological development. He developed a model that talked about the eight stages every human passes through as he grows. These stages depict and analyze a person's life from when they are baby till they die. It mentions how in every stage a person is presented with problems and challenges. Every stage depicts a crisis which has to be resolved or else it will create problems in the next stage. Thus, for a person to attain a positive personality they need to attain positive goals of that stage and progress smoothly to the next one. (osenthal, Gurney, & Moore 2)

Another organizational behavior theory that can be positively applied to support the idea according to which as service charge on the bill is more appropriate than under the table tipping is the equity theory. The equity theory proposes a ratio according to which the individual's outcomes divided by the individual's own inputs is equal to the relational partner's outcomes divided by the relational partner's inputs. This type of organizational behavior theory tends to connect closer the members of a team in an organization, as well as the inputs and correlated outcomes. This is also valid for a restaurant.

In fact, such a theory would actually propose that the service charge that is placed on the bill will be shared among the participants in the process according to their contribution to the final outcome, which is the sum received from the client.

Now, at 16, having returned again to her parents' home with Drake, she "has agreed to earn her GED and enroll in a vocational school to train for a job" and to thereby increase her current cognitive skills. However, "her classes begin a week from now; she has not made arrangements for Drake's care while she is in class." This lack of planning and preparation for long periods of the day away from Drake could be seen as a sign that Katie lacks problem-solving skills for a 16-year-old that should have been mostly learned at Erickson's Stage 4 (6-10 years old). A more likely explanation though is that care-giving, an activity Katie is uninterested in and performs poorly or not at all, properly belongs to Erikson's Stage 6, Early Adulthood (ages 18-34), Katie has not yet reached that stage even chronologically (obviously, she is completely unprepared for it emotionally, or…… [Read More]

Psycho-social Development

Katie exhibits fundamental lack-of-trust issues vis-a-vis her parents, probably stemming from as early as Erikson's Stage One (birth through age one); autonomy issues unresolved from Stage 2 (ages 1-3); "initiative vs. guilt" (Harris, 2000) issues from Stage 3 (ages 3-5) "industry" issues (i.e., "Am I able to succeed at what I try to do?") issues from Stage 4 (ages 6-10) (Harris). Further, it appears that Katie struggles now with identity issues at Stage 5 (ages 11-18) (Huitt, 1997; Huitt & Hummel, 2003). For example, Katie neither wants to return to school (she has agreed to complete her GED instead) nor seems to very strongly exhibit eagerness or enthusiasm about beginning her vocational courses next week (e.g., she has not gotten her driver's license, preferring to ride the bus when she (presumably) would not have to if she could drive; and also has taken no initiative in finding daytime care for Drake while she is away from the house. In Kohlberg's Stage 3 (Huitt, 1997), adolescents at 12 or 13 (Katie is 13 when she becomes pregnant by an 18-year-old drug user) are more vulnerable than earlier to influences outside the family. Katie's relationships with her own parents (perhaps this is mirrored by her own non-relationship to Drake, and has something to do with Drake's own compliant passivity); since she ran away from home, are unhealthy. As current evidence of the latter, Katie hardly communicates with them verbally, much less confiding in them about her thoughts and feelings. Katie shows various signs of having had (and of still having) not completed important developmental work from each of the first five of Erikson's eight stages (Marcia, 1966); the equivalent also of being stuck in Kohlberg's Stage 2 of moral development, the "Conventional" (Harris, 2000) and having less-than adequately mastered any of the developmental tasks of Piaget's Stage 4 (Huitt & Hummel, 2003) although this stage beings at around age 11.

In Piaget's second stage of childhood/adolescent development (see Huitt, 1997; Huitt & Hummel, 2003), and in Kohlberg's (similar) third stage (see Huitt), rules are not as ironclad as in earlier stages of childhood, and are instead typically regarded more as principles that facilitate peoples' getting along smoothly with one another. Katie, however, has no interest in following her mother's current rules, e.g., pitching in around the house or doing any of her mother's daily list of chores, even though such help (or at least some or most of
