De Mar Product Strategy How

Words: 595 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 35431731

Personnel plays a critical role in defining what the most critical priorities are in terms of skill sets as well, defining the hiring strategies going forward. When the product is a service being delivered the hiring decisions is the most critical one there is. Secondary only to training (Norton Pine II, 2009). Finally there is a passion a person must have about what they are doing working for De Mar. The personnel department has to find people with a passion for service if they are going to excel over the long-term as well (Gopalani, Shick, 2011).

Marketing is critically important in that it sets the expectation levels of customers and explains what they will be getting as an experience (Gopalani, Shick, 2011). This is where many services businesses fail as their marketing overcommits and their services department under delivers. De Mar has turned this around and under commits then over-delivers…… [Read More]

"Americans haven't come to grips with having their heart surgery in Thailand," admitted the American CEO of one of the Blue Cross affiliate hospitals abroad, "but that will change" (Einhorn 2008).

What this will also change, undeniably, is the corporate culture of the Blue Cross organization, as it must establish relationships with nations as diverse as Turkey, Thailand, and Ireland. The insurer argues that "foreign hospitals in such arrangements are typically approved by Joint Commission International, part of the same nonprofit organization that accredits American hospitals," but one can only wonder if this is yet another example of how profits are taking a priority over consumer health and comfort at one of the nation's major insurers. Interestingly, at Blue Cross, no doctors 'weighed in' on the issue, only executives were quoted in the BusinessWeek article on the new policy, and the implication was that this was a cost-cutting, managerial decision,…… [Read More]

Downsizing is not merely letting workers go. Downsizing means streamlining organizational processes and reducing the input costs of an enterprise. For example, in today's environment of corporate downsizing, sending jobs oversees to be filled by cheaper workers in developing nations has enabled corporations to cut costs. This form of downsizing maximizes the corporation's ability to use globalization to a cost and strategic advantage by reducing the input costs of labor, land, and the overhead costs of running a facility in the United States. Making use of low-wage Chinese laborers in manufacturing facilities and English-speaking Indian citizens at call centers in offshore locations has become routine. But what about downsizing on the 'demand' side of things? This may sound impossible -- but not for health insurance companies.

Blue Cross & Blue Shield noticed the phenomenon of 'medical tourism,' or individuals going abroad for cheaper medical care, and decided that it was missing out on a potential profit boom. In the future, Blue Cross may begin pressuring its policyholders to travel abroad to nations where medical costs are less expensive. "Getting covered employees to leave the U.S. won't be that hard...An insurance company could waive all deductibles and co-pays, offer to cover travel costs for the patient and family members, even throw in a cash incentive, and still save tens of thousands of dollars," enthused one of its vice-presidents (Einhorn 2008). "Americans haven't come to grips with having their heart surgery in Thailand," admitted the American CEO of one of the Blue Cross affiliate hospitals abroad, "but that will change" (Einhorn 2008).

Interestingly, at Blue Cross, no doctors 'weighed in' on the issue, only executives were quoted in the BusinessWeek article on the new policy, and the implication was that this was a cost-cutting, managerial decision, rather than one rooted in any concern about expanding patient choice or improving care.

The materials that are collected in them are solids from the various gases (which cooled inside these clouds). The gravity from the sun pulled them closer towards each other. This contributed to the formation of the planets and asteroids. ("Summary," 2007) (Williams, 2010)

Once a star is finished developing, is when solar winds will blow rock and debris away from the sun. This forms the Kuiper Belt and Oort Clouds, which is where the smaller debris is collected near the orbit of the outer body planets. These are the remains of the rubble that was used to create the solar system billions of years ago.

However, there is an exception to this pattern. In research that was conducted on distant galaxies, scientists discovered that there are not large outer planets with asteroid belts (i.e. Jupiter). This led to theories that much warmer Jupiter like bodies could exist closer to these…… [Read More]

The observing vehicle was the Cassini spacecraft that was sent to look at Saturn and its moons. Specifically, these findings relate to Saturn's moon Titan, the only known body (including planets and moons) known to have standing liquid on its surface. Instead of water, Titan's bodies of water are full of hydrocarbons rich with methane and ethane. The study focused on substances apparently floating on the surface of the bodies of liquid on Titan and the study tried to ascertain what those substances were and what caused them to appear or disappear at any given time. The study used a combination of observations from the Cassini craft and some theorization was thrown in based on the telemetry and other results from the Cassini craft. Prior theories had stated that the bodies did not have floating ice. The Cassini crew has an extended chance to view the phenomena given the rather…… [Read More]

The organic nature of the products that the company offers all seems to have a detrimental effect on profitability. Kudler may have to eliminate certain product offerings. This is particularly true if these products are not selling very well. In addition, the owner of the company may have some success in negotiating a lower price for those products that do sell well. The owner should be careful not to settle for whatever price she is quoted.

Another issue is payroll expense. All companies have problems with getting payroll expenses to a reasonable level. However. Kudler seems to have a problem in being able to pay highly specialized workers at the rate of the market. In addition, when on the specialized workers gets sick or quits it is difficult to find a replacement. Some of this will be remedied when the aforementioned problems are handled because it will create greater cash…… [Read More]

A also consider that a proper legislation should protect the surrogate mother, in order to avoid situations in which her rights would not be respected. Therefore, she should be paid her medical expenses and, as a sort of benefit for her act, she should be granted a free medical insurance and the right to free medical analyses. Moreover, the legislation should stipulate that the surrogate mother should be of the same nationality - American in this case - as the future parents, in order to avoid situations as those which occurred in the Indian women case, who have thought to have been abused, a thing they have accepted because of their poor material status.

All in all, it seems that gestational surrogacy is not among the best surrogacy practice, and this is because of the ethnic, legal and cultural misunderstandings it might generate. In addition, I consider it should be…… [Read More]

Concerns about obesity

The escalating global obesity epidemic has caused great concern about too much consumption of 'junk' food. Snickers traditionally advertised itself along the lines of many energy bars, as a treat that 'really satisfied' the consumer by offering a portable, quick source of energy. However, now there are many popular energy bars that offer nutritional bars with higher levels of protein and lower levels of carbohydrates than a candy bar. The trend towards eating healthier has also caused an explosion of portable snacks such as cut-up packaged fruits, individually-sized hummus, and other snack foods with higher levels of nutrition than Snickers bars.

Scientists Who Study the Evolution

On Earth, volcanic eruptions trigger the carbon cycle that accounts for the eventual concentration of calcium carbonate wherever water once existed. On Mars, the absence of calcium carbonate and, even more importantly, the presence of jarosite suggests that the element sulfur may have played a comparable role to that of carbon on Earth. Specifically, Martian volcanoes apparently ejected vast quantities of sulfur dioxide (instead of carbon dioxide released in volcanoes on this planet) where it was eventually dissolved in Martian oceans to form silicates and sulfites including calcium sulfite. At the same time, the presence of calcium sulfite would also have inhibited the formation of carbonates like limestone.

Additionally, this recent observation also offers a logical explanation for how a planet like Mars which is presently far too cold to support liquid water could ever have been warm enough to do so. That answer derives from the fact that just…… [Read More]

Global warming has been an issue of debate for decades, however, today there seems to be more evidence pointing to its reality. Type in "global warming" on Google search engine and access to more than fifteen million web sites will appear. One such web site is "Natural Resource Defense Council" at http://www.nrdc.org/globalarming/default.asp, which contains a wealth of information concerning global warming (Global pp). Those who believe in global warming assert that higher temperatures will produce dangerous consequences such as drought, disease, floods, and lost ecosystems (Global pp). According to the theory, carbon dioxide and other air pollution from sources such as coal-burning power plants and automobiles, collects in the atmosphere and creates a "thickening blanket" that traps the sun's heat and causes the planet's temperature to increase (Global pp). Over the past fifty years the average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history and scientists predict…… [Read More]

Chesla, pp. 1). Even though Hispanics have had to adapt to the American landscape if they wanted to thrive in the U.S., Hispanic communities have done a great job at keeping their customs and traditions.

One can actually say that Cisneros put a lot of her real life experiences into the character of Esperanza. The author has always felt that the men around her have attempted to impose themselves, pressing her to assume a typical female role. This is seen in "The Family of Little Feet" in several instances. Mr. Benny threatens the girls that he'll call the police if they don't leave. Also, he says that it is dangerous for them to be walking around with high-heeled shoes. It is obvious that Cisneros had had trouble developing in a community where women were not necessarily considered equal to men. Certain men have even went as far as comparing women…… [Read More]

"Once every 248 Earth years, Pluto swings inside the orbit of Neptune. It stays there for twenty years. During those twenty years, Pluto is closer to the Sun than Neptune. During this period of time, like the other eight planets, Pluto's atmosphere undergoes a fundamental change in character, briefly developing an atmosphere. As methane and nitrogen frozen at the poles thaw. As it moves toward its farthest point from the Sun, Pluto's atmosphere freezes and falls back to the ground" (Dejoie & Truelove 2008).

These eccentricities further suggested that Pluto was really much more "like a new group of objects found in the outer solar system," called dwarf planets and not worthy of the status of the other eight (Inman, 2008, p.2). Still, many astronomers argued in favor of a more inclusive definition that would still retain Pluto's status as a planet. In fact, one radical proposal: "would have made…… [Read More]

Botticelli's Mythological Paintings

Botticelli's Mythological Paintings

The paintings done by different artists exemplify the influences that they have had throughout their life. The style and topics chosen for the artwork are two of the major elements of any painting. In Sandro Botticelli's work, the topics chosen for the painting are that he was influenced by the Renaissance Neoplatonism, coupled by the Medici Humanism all presented in his work in various ways.

Sandro Botticelli one of the great Italian masters of art demonstrated a preference for spirituality in his scenic patterns and portraits that were a reaction against the conceptual realism of Masaccio. His reaction was to introduce the elements of Gothic art which were shown through sentiment, passion, ornamental styles that used myths of the past creating allegory's and symbolic images, later combined with the Medici humanism. The Medici family, were the Renaissance patrons of Florentine art who changed the era of art…… [Read More]

Conclusion: Botticelli's art in the painting Mars and Venus thus suggests a love and influence of the gothic art which was used to reveal the symbolic myths of the past in order to revive sentiment and passion in an era of changing society.

Developing Space Vehicles for Future Space Tourism

Words: 981 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 49272483

Space Vehicles

Throughout the course of human history, the idea of traveling into space has been something that has captured the imagination. This is because it is offering everyone with an avenue for seeing new worlds and learning about the universe. The result is that a number of missions are being planned for going back to the moon and eventually Mars.

To reach these objectives, a series of space vehicles are under development. This is to address the desire to explore the unknown and ensure that astronauts can return safely to Earth. At the same time, many craft are utilizing robotic technology. This improves the ability of scientists to understand what is happening and the impact it having on stakeholders.

In the case of space tourism, these changes will encourage more firms and governmental organizations to become involved. This is because the costs for conducting these missions can be reduced.…… [Read More]

Solar Flares Affect Planet Earth

Words: 953 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 40201405

The last major x-ray flare occurred in 2003 ("O'Dell). Most of the energy from an x-ray flare is absorbed by the earth's ionosphere ("O'Dell). Thus, a CME can be far more dangerous for human societies than an x-ray flare.

The first and most subtle observable phenomenon signaling an upcoming solar storm are known as coronal loops, which are "kinks in the magnetic flux form" forced to the surface of the sun due to a buildup of magnetic energy (O'Dell). Dark spots on the sun's surface then appear, usually in the "footprint" of the coronal loops ("O'Dell). The dark spots visibly signal the buildup of magnetism. NASA describes the phenomenon of solar flares as occurring in three stages: a precursor stage, an impulsive stage, and a decay stage. During the precursor stage, the release of magnetic energy is only triggered and leads to "soft x-ray emissions," ("What is a Solar Flare?").…… [Read More]

One of the central concerns regarding government regulation of businesses and the establishment of monopolies is to protect the consumer by creating an open sphere of market competition. But what of a marketplace where a non-sanctioned monopoly has ensued where the consumer is not being unduly harmed? The economic theory of supply and demand holds that when supplies are kept artificially low, prices are kept artificially high. Traditionally, the defense against prohibiting monopolies are that "in a market that has only one or few suppliers of a good or service, the producer(s) can control price, meaning that a consumer does not have choice, cannot maximize his or her total utility, and has have very little influence over price."

Typography Graphic

For any organization, the way they communicate to the audience will determine their influence on a host of issues. In the case of Amnesty International, the human rights group is dealing with a conflict of interest by having a former Guantanamo detainee (Moazzam Begg) working with them. This is troubling, because the radical Islamist views that Begg will frequently discuss are in direct conflict with the ideals of the group (i.e. human rights and equality). ("Amnesty International") To fully understand how this is taking place requires looking at the organization's web site. This will be accomplished by studying: their audience, the purpose, the context and visual cues of the typography. Together, these different elements will support the thesis statement of how the viewer is impacted by what they see and read.

Military Tuition Assistance Cut: A Personal esponse

An effort to kill the Tuition Assistance program in 2011 sparked off a furor in the lines, and the remunerations were swiftly restored. This time though, there has been almost no outcry; with Navy carrier groups not capable to install because of a lack of money -- and the services dropping their ranks by in excess of 250,00p recruits, it's not easy to justify a $600 million expense for off-duty learning. However, in the past week we are not starting to see a lot of protests both online and offline.

This specific cut is extremely short-sighted. In fact, Tuition Assistance delivers outstanding defense fund value, compared to other military education curriculums. With service members attending classes while in uniform (characteristically online, during their off-duty times), the military payback from the information and expertise they achieve. Many recruits have reported…… [Read More]

This one hour 40 minutes movie stars Will Smith and Alice Braga with Francis Lawrence as its director the movie is rated at PG-13 for violence. The movie offers a stunning view of how the city as the world knows it today, might look in 2012 if in the event it were abandoned in 2009.

Going back in trivia, this is the third adaption of the ichard Matheson's 1954 novel, originally in the film it was vampires instead of zombies. Such movies are always inspired by our fears and hence hold special interest, especially if it's a scientist abandoned in New York struggling to survive a virus that turns humans into flesh-eating mechanical looking zombies.

If we go through its adaptations, the first time the novel was turned into a movie…… [Read More]

For the United States, the events of September 11, 2001, and the post-9/11 developments arc full of historical drama. In he 9/11 Commission Report, the summary of the drama is stark: 'On September 11, the nation suffered the largest loss of life-2,973-- on its soil as a result of hostile attack in its history.' his description is usually accompanied by countless stories and mini- histories involving persons, families, workers. Citizens of the U.S. And of other nations too, near and far from New York and Washington, DC, found their comings and goings full of new meaning.

What More Can I Give was originally written to bring peace to the Korean Peninsula and the never-ending war-like crisis there. But the sudden intrusion of terror on September 11th threw a wrench at the project. Plans were quickly arranged for the urgent. On October 21st, 2001 Michael hosted United We Stand: What More Can I Give.

The benefit concert included the performance of "What More Can I Give." A song exclusively written and produced by Michael Jackson. And so he invited a total of 35 artists for an all-star tribute.

This paper examines the ethical and liability issues that non-profit corporations and for-profit businesses face, and compares them.

Non-Profit Corporations and For-Profit Business: Comparison of the Ethical and Liability Issues that are Faced by Both There have been a lot of scandals lately regarding large for-profit businesses. These scandals stem from both ethical and legal issues. Many of these scandals have resulted in lawsuits and even criminal proceedings against those who have been involved with them.

That being said, until a robot or computer has the capability of adding to its information on its own (or learning and developing without the aid of human interference), the idea of artificial intelligence is fictional.

David Chalmers writes in his paper ("How Can We Construct a Science of Consciousness?") that it has become possible to think that we are moving toward a genuine scientific understanding of conscious experience. In the paper, Chalmers compares both third-person data and first-person data and talks about how both need some sort of explanation. Based on this paper and others I've read by Chalmers, I believe he would be in support of robotic consciousness to a certain extent. Chalmers often remains subjective in his findings and in the information he presents.

Australian Philosopher David Armstrong, however, strongly defends the identity of mental events and argues the objective of reality in relation to scientific realism.…… [Read More]

However, journalist Joe Wright did not look away from Nathanial Ayers, a homeless musician who had once been a prodigy but eventually developed schizophrenia. Although schizophrenia runs in families, external social stresses can precipitate its outbreak in a vulnerable individual. This can be seen in the case of Ayers, who was an African-American cellist. He had come from a family where classical music was seldom heard or played. Being thrust into an all-white world where he was expected to succeed was too much for the vulnerable Ayers. He felt he had the fate of his race hanging above him, dropped out of Julliard, and soon was living on the streets.

Wright takes an interest in Ayers after he hears the homeless musician playing Beethoven on a two-stringed violin. Despite his many years living on the streets, Ayers clearly has a need to produce music: music grounds him and helps silence…… [Read More]

As the War in Iraq takes place, and people hope for a quick end to all conflicts around them there is deep thought continuously being given to the emergence of a new world order. People aren't really sure in which direction military conflicts are going to talk them. Most people are afraid, and they are rightly so, because presently nothing is certain at all.

The main driver for this change was external, to enhance not only the competitive differentiation of the company, but also its image in the public eye.

Whereas GM divided its sales and marketing divisions, Microsoft's change focused on combining separate divisions: Global Agencies and Global Accounts. The former focused on top ad agencies, while to latter focused on top clients. For this combination, a new vice president was also appointing to report directly to the top executive. The Global Agencies leading executive was placed in charge of the global marketing team in a more integrated role.

One of the main differences between Microsoft and GM is that the latter focused more on working directly with clients, mainly because of the type of product and sales activity required for the company. Vehicle sales requires direct and intensive contact between a sales executive and client. Hence, greater focus was required to optimize…… [Read More]

The data collected from this time duration of interviews was then statistically analyzed using MANOVA based on the number of variables within counselor behavior that can affect the rapport with the client.

Again, this is ultimately false. It is evident in the article written by Wolf (2001) that focusing on one option is not effective. Both centers utilized all of the option choices that they were given. This in turn afforded an opportunity to insure that the best choices were being made. The main premise is stated plainly as, cheaper is not always better, always consider all of your options; no particular method is a great fit for every company or organization. In addition, input is always important at every level. Lastly, community involvement is always a key to success when trying to develop an initiative in ones community.

It was also good in that it allowed the success oriented manager to expand upon the manager's role.

The manager's role, as stated by Kim, is not necessarily to raise prices, but rather to focus on the big picture. If the manager is successful in that, the manager can also be the person who will create new demand for the product. Kim is all about creating new product, which will create new demand.

Kim left out a couple of interesting, and potentially conflicting items that he could have covered, and quite easily. Chan skipped the fact that (currently) technology is so great and information so instantaneously available that the experts who tout different methods of being successful, could ultimately end up imitating Kim's methods.

The significance of coffee as a commodity

The globalization has produced in time some of the most interesting changes in the economy of the world. In the 16th, and 17h centuries, the trade with Indian spices or exotic condiments was seen as one of the most important aspects of trade in the world. Conquest wars have been fought for the control of these regions. In today's world, the market has become more specialized from the point-of-view of the commodities it nurtures. In this sense, coffee has become a true commodity in the sense of the globalized world.

Canned Food

Fournier describes consumers as having relationships with different brands. hat Fournier means by this is that for any given brand, consumers ascribe to that brand a distinct set of attributes. This allows them to form a relationship with the brand that is independent of any particular product. This relationship is not necessarily one-dimensional, either. The brand has no feelings, but it can communicate to the consumer through the products associated with that brand and through the marketing messages that are associated with that brand by the consumer.

The category is canned foods. The products chosen are Spam and Heinz Baked Beans. I believe that consumers do have relationships with both of these brands. They are iconic brands in their categories. Consumers are exposed to both of these products at an early age, and may have an emotional attachment based on childhood nostalgia. For others, the product still resonates…… [Read More]

Lexmark provides an example of waste. Recently, the company found itself with more than $1 million in scrap from one lot. Engineers had insufficient information to isolate and fix the problem, so were instead relegated to crisis control. With more accurate data from each step of the operation, the engineers could have been more involved in the process and made improvements along the way before it became a large-scale crisis.

Men's Expectations in a Relationship

Men Need Acceptance

Men want to be accepted by their partner. Gray notes that when a woman tries to nurture and help her partner, he feels like he is being controlled and like he is not accepted for who he is.

Men Need to be Needed

Gray says that "not to be needed is a slow death for a man" (Gray 73). A man needs to feel like he is needed and like he is making a difference to his partner.

Men Need Space

Men need the space to deal with problems on their own. If a woman tries to help too much, a man can begin to feel smothered.

Men Need Independence

Gray notes that when a man achieves intimacy, he feels a need to be independent and to achieve autonomy. A man will pull away from the relationship to achieve this, but will…… [Read More]

Overcoming esistance to Change

There is a formula, which we can use to decide if an organization is ready for change:

Dissatisfaction x Vision x First Steps > esistance to Change

This means that three components must all be present to overcome the resistance to change in an organization: Dissatisfaction with the present situation, a vision of what is possible in the future, and achievable first steps towards reaching this vision. If any of the three is zero or near zero, the product will also be zero or near zero and the resistance to change will dominate.
