Integrating network relationships with entrenched resources, can lead to the development of organizational ability for achieving long-range business sustainability. Internal and external knowledge processes are a characteristic of organizational capabilities.
Building organizational capability is reliant on the qualities of networks, tacit knowledge, collective learning, and organization of work, delivery of value, coordination of diverse skills, commitment, involvement, and flexibility within organizational structures. Similarly, firm value formation helps to build organizational competence via product, service, or organizational modernization. Therefore, in order to maintain business for the long-range, promising entrepreneurs need to develop suitable network strategies for managing entrenched resources, which should be directed to knowledge attainment and firm value formation (Latip & Smyrnios, 2012).
The entrepreneurial personality is characterised by a self enthusiasm that makes conquering risks promising and is driven by new business occasions. Achievement motivation, risk-taking and internal locus of control are all characteristics that are seen as valuable for….

Contract global employment under the Nike Code of Conduct has been altered significantly, as diversity of legal and social standards for employment come into play in Nike factories all over the world. Nike also actively seeks to allow contractor managers and employees visits to domestic operations of both management and manufacture and hires within these pools when they can to increase domestic diversity.
Ethics are an essential aspect of the manner in which Nike has come to adopt standards that apply to both domestic and global manufacture, as their early exposure to public criticism in the global market led them to a completely different set of goals that enforce greater compliance with and the planning, organization, leadership and control of the Code of Conduct itself. External audits by outside interested parties have concluded that the Code of Conduct and its enforcement are novel and frequently uphold a standard that many….

Now, both services are under one entity for many consumers.
In terms of leading the market share, the greater the connection between the wireless and landline services, the better able the merged entity will be able to extend incentives to consumers to make use of the company for both technical services, such as the rollover options advertised on the company, expanded Mobile to Mobile calling, and access to the ALLOVER Network, said to be "the largest digital voice and data network in America." The website assures consumers, "you can continue to enjoy your existing benefits uninterrupted and without changes to your plan or its features." (Cingular ebsite, 2004) However, industry analysts believe that consumers will end up paying more for services, because of the absence of competition, in the long run.
In terms of overall organizational shaping of the merged corporate entity, this merger will undoubtedly increase "the dominance of the….

Out of ethical concerns regarding distribution of funds, in 2002, the United Way of America reorganized its operating structure. The goal was to transform the primary governing body into a leadership Board of Trustees "comprised of diverse volunteers who are senior representatives of the largest, most influential donors and sponsors, noted intellectual, civic, moral leaders and other stakeholders" (Governance, 2010, The United Way). This was also designed to ensure that the governing body had a vested interest in upholding the charitable mission of the organization. Focusing on volunteers in choosing UW leadership promoted diversity and inclusiveness in the membership of the organization's governing board as well as in UW outreach activities.
Instituting measures to ensure financial compliance with the law and accountability measures for its national and local chapters has been critical for the charity: "The United Way system has developed comprehensive requirements for completion of audited financial statements. They are….

Nokia's path -- based on Symbian, relatively slow innovation and a focus on low-margin emerging markets -- has not benefitted the company much. Yet, it still has some valuable assets. The firm may no longer have any 'hot' products, but the Nokia name is still respected. In addition, the company still has some financial health as well. That said, Nokia is struggling to find its way in the smartphone market. It feels that its product is competitive, but either they are wrong about the product or they have horrible marketing because Symbian is nowhere to be found. Its focus on India and other low-margin markets has it struggling with pretax margins, while industry leaders Apple, RIM and HTC have robust margins.
Nokia's way forward is to either make up ground in mobile, become an OEM using Android (the leading open mobile OS) or to stay out of smartphones and attempt….
Smith and Wesson IFE (Internal Factor Evaluation) Matrix and SummaryFounded in 1852, Smith and Wesson regards itself a market leader as far as innovation is considered in the manufacture of firearms. During its 165 years in the firearm manufacturing industry, the company has developed a wide range of pistols, starting with the volcanic pistol in 1852 to the M&P M2.0 pistol in 2017, with the latter being regarded a masterpiece as far as grip, frame, and finish is concerned (Smith and Wesson, 2017).Table 1.0: IFE Matrix of Smith & WessonStrengthsWeightatingWeighted ScoreExcellent production quality0.1940.76Significant market share0.1540.60Brand image0.0930.27Innovation0.1040.40Strong and consistent growth in revenues0.0730.21Well-founded &D0.0830.24Strong managerial team0.0930.27WeaknessesHigh manufacturing cost0.0810.08Large portion of revenues drawn from U.S. market0.0910.09Dependence on a single revenue stream i.e. firearm manufacture only0.0620.12Total Weight Score1.003.04SummaryThe IFE matrix, in the words of Lodato (2014), is a tool to help in evaluating the internal environment of the business by visualizing and evaluating major….
According to her market research, the primary reason that families do not take traditional birth courses is that the courses are expensive. In order to address this, Brio maximized the online and digital aspects of their curriculum to drastically reduce the costs to families who were primarily paying for the published course material in other classes.
The internal factor that I wish to further evaluate is that of resources within the institution. The hospital that I chose to observe and suggest the change in curriculum for was a hospital in Scottsdale. This hospital is very large and has a large labor and delivery area. Additionally, the hospital also has one-site conference space available that can be requested in advance. This space would provide the ideal place for the training, especially since the training is meant only for labor and delivery nurses within the hospital.
Additional resources to consider for the curriculum….
INTENAL ENVIONMENTAL ANALYSISUnited Airline Holdings: Internal Environmental AnalysisStrategic ole of Corporate Strengths/Weaknesses in the Internal Strategy Analysisa) Corporate-Level StrategiesIn basic terms, an enterprises corporate-level strategies refer to the approaches embraced by the top management in efforts to steer the entire organization towards success (Godfrey, 2015). Towards this end, they tend to have an impact on the entire organization. With this in mind, the corporate level strategies of United Airline Holdings could be conceptualized as all the organizational undertakings meant to further promote the entire companys competitive advantage in the airline industry. Strategies of this nature would also relate to the determination of the overall direction that the company takes going forward.With the worst effects of the COVID-19 pandemic now behind us, United Airline Holdings appears to be focused on stability. In the words of Brandoni (2018), stability strategy could come in handy when a company finds that it should continue….

successful leadership styles, strategies and traits.
Two leadership styles that I believe are successful and effective styles are servant leadership and transformational leadership. Both of them emphasize strategies of helping followers to become better overall, and both build on positive traits of trust and integrity. Servant leadership focuses on putting the needs of the other ahead of one's own. It is truly about serving one's followers and thereby building an organization that is grounded in compassion, empathy, and the desire and ability to actually help other people overcome the obstacles they face, whether they are in a particular work habit, a personal problem, or a financial difficulty. Servant leaders look out for their followers as though they were their sheep.
Transformational leaders focus on using Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Social Intelligence (SI) to build relationships and transform their followers into the kind of workers that the organization needs to succeed. This….

This study demonstrates that different total P. fraction releases may differ between two bodies of water under similar oxygen conditions (Kisand & Noges, 2003). This study is important in that it highlights the complexity of understanding P. fractions in any given body of water. There are a multitude of potential reactions in any body of water. Oxygen plays a role in the reactions of any individual lake, but one cannot make predictions based on oxygen level alone.
Shallow lakes differ from stratified lakes in many ways. A stratified lake typically reaches equilibria in such a manner that it becomes divided into regions. This is not the case with shallow lakes. With a shallow lake, the entire lake may change from clear water to macrophyte dominated to algae dominated, each phase has its own state of equilibrium (Dokulil & Teubner, 2003). Total chlorophyll to phosphorus ratios are different in these various….

Interviewing as the most used employee screening skill
Another very effective method of prospective employee evaluation is evaluation interview. Evaluation interview was a theme of a number of researches and studies, which examine the validity of different interview types. The researches show that structured intrviews have a higher acuracy than unstructured (Huffcutt and Arthus, 1994; McDaniel et al., 1994; Wiesner and Cronshaw, 1988; Wright et al., 1989). In most cases interviews can be planned using job analyses questions or scoring procedures, which can objectively evaluate candidates creditability in prospective field.
Each interview has five common steps: planning and preparing the interview, beginning it with objectives,….

Analysis of California Pizza Kitchen Strengths and Weaknesses
California Pizza Kitchen has been able to rise above the difficult economic conditions in their largest markets by concentrating on the most strategically important process areas first. At the center of their strengths, the chain has is the ability to support their global brand with a unique, branded dining experience (Fair Disclosure Wire, 2010). Creating the integration between a restaurant's global brand and having the dining experience support and accentuate the brand's messaging and value is elusive and yet very profitable (McCaw, 2009). This is the greatest strength that California Pizza Kitchen has been able to attain in its history including its growth across geographies.
The second greatest strength of the company is its ability to continually create unique food entrees and continually keep the in-restaurant dining experience new and exciting even for the most loyal customers. This ability to create a continual new….

On the other hand, organizations that focus on external equity enjoys the advantage of attracting and retaining highly qualified employees. Similarly, the rate of staff turnover is extremely minimal as the staffs remain aware that their organization is offering compensation packages, which are streamlined accordingly with the compensation in the market. However, insisting on the external equity bears also some disadvantages. For instance, by focusing on the prevailing market compensation, an organization whose economic state does not support such pay package ends up hurting its operations. Similarly, resentment within the top brass, such as CEO's and other managers may crop due to inequality dictated by the conditions in the market (CCH, Incorporated and Myers, 2003).
It is worth noting that a given organization may resort to choose a definite compensation plan depending on its objectives. For instance, Intel chose internal equity plan which is in accordance to its objective of harmonizing….

Evidenced by the lower income figures reported widely, China's rural farming populations have perhaps been the hardest hit by the One Child Policy. here ancient traditions and customs once dominated the way of life in the rural areas, China's reform policies, especially that one limiting One Child per family, have long impacted the rural way of life and productivity in China (Diamant, Neil, 2000, 93). here families that farmed once had children, sometimes numerous children, and those children helped to farm and bring in productive crops that could sustain the family, with the results of the family's labors far reaching and providing a source of income as well; since the One Child Policy was….
