Case Study Leadership

Words: 632 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 59465551

Leadership

Jimmy demonstrated strong leadership characteristics from his early career with the military. He was a team player early on, and enjoyed working with his fellow officers but also with his superiors. This demonstrated Jimmy's ability to be flexible, and to take as well as share responsibility. One of the reasons why Jimmy has been successful is that he demonstrated early that he was a good leader, which is why he earned accolades from his superiors in the military. However, one weakness that his supervisors noted was that Jimmy tended to be too impatient with his subordinates, and placed high expectations on them.

When it was time for Jimmy to find work in the civilian sector, he naturally gravitated toward leadership roles. Jimmy's leadership characteristics include a penchant for communications. For example, when working as a leader in the home improvement store, he told his employees that he would be…… [Read More]

Case Study and Nursing

Words: 1831 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 41057430

Advance Nursing Practice

In order to sustain life, the human body has to have oxygen. When a person cannot breathe, or there is not enough oxygen coming into the body through the act of breathing, it is not possible for life to continue. The respiratory system is what provides the person with the opportunity to breathe and take in oxygen. Carbon dioxide is also expelled that same way. If oxygen is not received, the brain cells will start dying, followed by other cells, organs, and tissues. Addressed here is a case study dealing with the respiratory system, conditions it may face, and how those issues can be treated.

school known as St. Martin de Porras. There were two portions to the case study…a part "A" and a part "B." The two parts were very much a "before" and "after" of a school that was in very rough shape and in every measurable way. This report will have a brief literature view, a methodology section, a study section and an analysis section. The literature review and methodology section are fairly self-explanatory. The study section asks the author of this report to identify the problems, goals and concerns of the stakeholders as well as the problems or critical issues that existed prior to the revolution that later occurred at the school.

Farrow's Bank -- Case Study On Management Hubris

Case Study on Management Hubris, a report about 1920's Farrow's Bank.

VICTIMS IGHTS MOVEMENT

Characterizing Farrow's Hubris

The steady rise and increase in Farrow's Bank's prominence boosted Farrow's confidence and determination. Farrow stopped seeing himself as just a banker, and became increasingly vocal regarding matters of industrial legislation and national policies. He took liberties by airing his views through the Bank's in-house publications and giving strong opinions on the government's way of doing things and ideas on how to make the British economy a competitive one. This was only the beginning to a more political aspect of his ambitions. In1916, he published more content on tactics and approaches to deal with the coming trade conflict. He preached to the government on how to stay dominant in the market. Farrow's tone of self-importance and boastfulness grew with the expansion of his bank and…… [Read More]

Comprehension about esearch

A key responsibility of the work of a professional researcher is that of publishing research results. esearchers' writings always serve as a store of knowledge for the writer, but researchers also pen their findings because their peers and readers expect a standard language, form and style when reviewing their work. While it can be hard for beginners to write in a clear scientific style, the skill is trainable and can be mastered with practice (Michael Derntl, 2014).

When doing case study research, as one looks at past studies and reports, the researcher gets a unique opportunity to explore and understand some of the most complicated issues in society from differing perspectives. This approach can be viewed as robust approach especially when in depth and holistic investigations are involved. Case study is appreciated in many fields as a critical tool to…… [Read More]

Polaris & Victory: Entering & Growing the Motorcycle Business

Strategic Profile and Case Analysis Purpose

This is a case study of Polaris Industries and how they managed to enter the motorcycle market in 1998 with the Victory brand of motorcycles. The charge was led by Matt Parks who joined the company in 1987, by being asked to conduct research on the viability of Polaris entering the motorcycle market (Hitt, Ireland, & Hoskisson, 2016). The name Victory was coined when the company was still pursuing the possibility of starting motorcycle production. Victory was a confidential codename for the project, and it is Parks who came up with the name. esearch indicated that there was room for another competitor to enter the market especially in the cruiser business that was currently dominated by the Japanese producers and Harley-Davidson.

Case Study Struggling Reader

Words: 3505 Length: 11 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 76178173

Working with the individual child in my case study was definitely enlightening in terms of understanding the struggling reader more generally. I think probably the most salient fact I learned about Jake -- the one which really occasioned the most generalized breakthrough in terms of my own understanding about this sort of educational difficulty -- was to observe specifically and intimately the differences in Jake's experience.

Vlach and Bursie (2010) emphasize the importance of "narrative" in for students in Jake's position -- my close observation really brought their conclusions home to me in an unexpected way, as it revealed the importance of narrative for educators as well. To clarify, "narrative" in this sense refers to the individual student's narrative, the way in which the story of the student's own process of learning to overcome reading difficulty is described and indeed internalized by the student himself or herself. The importance of…… [Read More]

Case Study Into Loyalty in the Mobile Network Market

Words: 3088 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 69305686

Mobile Loyalty ackground

The mobile telephone system is part of a global communication sector that has a number of distinct but interlinked elements. Whether one talks on a telephone, searches the net, emails, sends texts or downloads and participates in web-generated data sharing, one is using the mobile telephone network more and more, to the point where it and some of the competing companies appear to be reaching their service capacities. Or at least this seems to be the case when it comes to doing what these large providers should be best at: adding and keeping customers. Maintaining a loyal buyer base -- one that truly likes and advocates for the provider -- or at least happily retaining one beyond a small contract period is critical for any company that wants to be able to serve the global marketplace (Sharpley, 2009).

Underlying many of the customer service practices and promises…… [Read More]

Total ewards Program Evaluation: Case Study of Geico

Total rewards are all available tools that employers can use to motivate, attract and retain employees. In other words, rewards are the compensations that organizations provide to employees for the services rendered to the company. However, rewards are not simply to offer payments or direct currencies for employees; however, rewards are the other form of non-financial benefits that can be converted to currencies, which include comfortable offices and favorable interpersonal relationships for employees. Typically, rewards are the compensatory benefits to exchange for the services that employees offer an organization. Total rewards are also defined as everything that an employee perceives as a great value. In a contemporary competitive business environment, organizations are increasingly attracting best talents to achieve business success. Implementation of total rewards for employees is one of the critical business strategies that can enhance competitive market advantages.

Case Study on Child Development

Words: 1360 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 60761422

Child development- A case study

One of the popular ideas of child development and learning in the early childhood educational setting is engaging children in play activities. Play stimulates and improves cognitive, motor and socio-emotional skills of children. Children practice as well as gain mastery over their behaviors, through play. Play theories are broadly categorized into two groups: classical and modern play theories; the former group focuses on human energy, evolution, and instincts (Does play matter, 2013).

Observed levels of play

He has well-developed communication skills (listening and speaking) and conveys ideas effectively, telling others what must be done. Play-related communication is the key skill in cooperative play.

Genetics

Case Study Part II: Genetics

Describe if chromosomal analysis is/was indicated.

Huntington disease, also known as HD [MIM 143100] is dominantly inherited gradually neurodegenerative disorder. It is caused by a mutation; which leads to the expansion of the CAG or polymorphic trinucleotide HTT tract. Normatively, the size of the control CAG among ordinary people should be between 17 and 20 repeats. In HD patients, 1-2 duplicate genes have an expanded GAC tract to at least 36 repeats (Kremer, et al., 1994).The polymorphic trinucleotide tract size can be uneven and is more likely to expand, especially if it is passed on by a male germline. At first, the new rate of mutation for Huntington disease was estimated to be extremely low. The illness only affected those families that had history with HD. Current estimates have discovered that the expansion of CAG into the illness range has become more rampant than…… [Read More]

When Google detected an extremely high level of attempted hacking on its computer systems, it issued an online memo that indicated its possible exit from the Chinese market. The Wall Street Journal captured this adequately in its headline for its edition on 13th January 2010 as, "Google warns of China Exit after Hacking." Based on proof gathered from the same, it seemed that the attacks had been directed at gaining access to the email accounts of human rights agitators from China. According to Google, the attacks had been unsuccessful. The company, however, indicated the balancing act that they had to engage in ever since coming into the Chinese market. The Chinese market had required a lot of thought being put into the information availed to the Chinese people, as there was a lot of censorship and limitations on the information that they could access.…… [Read More]

Managing a possible Case of Gastroenteritis: A Nursing Case Study

The effective delivery of optimal nursing care requires a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses both the patient's symptoms and the security of the immediate environment. This report presents a case study of appropriate evidence-based nursing practices in treating an elderly female patient presenting with abdominal discomfort in a residential care setting.

While the client's nursing care plan indicates that she is normally continent, her confidential disclosure to the nurse suggests that her symptoms may be more prolonged.

That is primarily due to the spirit of teamwork the company instills on human workforce. Another reason for success in this regard is the maintenance of certain rules and principles followed by everyone: the CEO, Vice-Presidents, pilots, flight attendants, and receptionists. For example, flight attendants do not necessarily wait until people from a specific department come in and clean up the plane seats; they do the task on their own if they have to. Pilots start carrying bags if they see there is a need for that. They do not as, a general rule, avoid responsibility, which allows different parts of HR systems work together. SW also ensures teamwork that avoids conflicts between different parts by encouraging cross-departmental collaboration and training.

This approach is highly congruent with the guidance of marketing experts such as Wheaton (2004) who advises, "There are synergies between different lifestyle sports industries and their media. Corporations make equipment for several lifestyle sports, sometimes under different brand names. Clothing companies like Quiksilver sell to a range of lifestyle sport markets including skating, surfing, windsurfing, snowboarding and have been quick to exploit the potential of emergent and rapidly growing activities like kite-surfing" (2004, p. 10). Because the company also designs and manufactures the core sporting needs for these sporting enthusiasts, it is important to identify defining characteristics of this market. These sports are characterized by a number of features of interest to Quiksilver's and its competitors' marketers with respect to their various core product and accessory lines, including those set forth in Table 2 below.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Case Study

Introduction to Cognitive Behavioral and ational Emotive Behavior Therapy

In general, ational Emotive Behavior Therapy (EBT) is one form of the broader category of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (Westbrook & Kirk, 2005). In principle, CBT provides a clinical psychotherapeutic approach that combines the most tested and proven aspects of Freudian psychotherapy or classic psychodynamic theory with behavior and cognitive therapy (Westbrook & Kirk, 2005). Under the CBT approach, psychodynamic concepts are applied to the types of clinical issues that clearly relate to psychodynamic roots and conflicts whereas behavioral and cognitive concepts are applied to help patients change the way that they perceive and process information and self-perceptions that play roles in their presenting problems. All forms of CBT emphasize retraining the patient to question fundamental assumptions and beliefs that are part of their underlying problems (Hoffman & Smits, 2008).

The EBT approach in particular is based…… [Read More]

In school, Jacob would benefit from additional resource room support to help him deal with his ADHD, along with academic enrichment to enhance his sense of self.

The main benefit of the Venturi Mask is that it allows precise regulation of the FiO2.

There have been enormous changes due to introduction of various cultural elements in the continuum of care. Before, when people were admitted to assisted living facilities or hospital settings, there were very little cultural elements outside of the majority culture which had sponsored the facility. For example, if a facility was associated with some sort of church or temple, there were elements of that religion present, but there was little alternatives for members of other cultures or religions.

Yet, today, there are now a much wider array of cultural elements available in assisted living homes and hospital facilities. Assisted living programs are regulated on the level of the state.

As such, different states have different types of programs and policies that impact the degree to which cultural characteristics are included or excluded within various assisted living facilities. Some programs encourage cultural elements of patients…… [Read More]

This gradually became impossible, given changes in technology. The railroads became more and more obsolete for long-term travel.

The Philippine-based hamburger chain Jollibee Foods Corporation is currently contemplating international expansion. The first question it must answer is where: should it expand into America, Hong Kong, or the developing world market of Papua New Guinea? If it decides to expand into America it faces another choice: should it focus on mainstream America consumers or recent immigrants and Philippine expatriates? (Bartlett & O'Connell 2001: 34)

Outside concepts that can be applied: The challenges of globalization

egionalization was vital in Jollibee's original success: it offered larger spicy hamburger patties more attuned to local diners' palates vs. McDonald's more generic offerings. Political instability in the region resulted in reluctance for foreign companies to make incursions into the fast food landscape and enabled Jollibee to establish a secure foothold in its home nation.

Dyson Case Study

Dyson has created a highly profitable business through the use of a series of processes, systems and practices that increase the probability of innovative new products being produced. It is insightful that the founder and CEO concentrates on finding those household items that aren't working well and dramatically improving their ergonomics, performance and value.
