In contrast, the French hung on to fighting concepts that had been centuries old so that mostly anyone with a little military background could have guessed their response strategies in case of a war.
French Generals such as Ferdinand Foch and Philippe Petain were famous for their ingenuity during I, when the very concept of involving originality into warfare had brought them victory. However, considering the fact that Foch no longer lived to see his country fighting II, and, the fact that Petain seemed unwilling to share his knowledge with those involved in fighting against the Germans at the time, it would be easy to understand what kept France from properly using its forces.

The Germans had learnt a basic rule when concerning warfare: speed and maneuverability make the difference between a successful campaign and a fruitless one. Napoleon was known to have a fondness for offensive campaigns, being aware that….

Indirectly, the technological and industrial endeavors of the First World War led to an increased emphasis on the importance of science knowledge and practical application throughout the country, and when there was no longer a war effort towards which to direct these energies, the fervor did not die away but rather found itself applied in new directions, such as crop dusting, increasing diversification of automobiles, and many other innovations (Highbeam 2010).
The 1920s ended with the market crash and the onset of the Great Depression, and though technology continued to advance its progress was necessarily slowed during this period. World War II saw a similar resurgence in technological and industrial innovations, however, and the following decade of the 1950s saw a major increase in the number and the affordability of many new or newer household technologies. Among these was the all important television, which would change the way the world….

S. system of communication was responsible for far too many problems, including the presidential conception of the value of the leader, Nhu Ding Diem. Key factors in this war were the misuse of technology in the south and intelligent use of simple technology by the north. The Battle of Diem Bin Phu was a classic miscalculation when the French thought that artillery could not be brought against them through the jungle. The North Vietnamese did just that, manually hauling big guns on jungle trails and over mountains, then followed with ammunition on bicycles. In addition they hid the guns in tunnels and set off charges in the jungle to confuse the French as to the sources of shelling.
After the French left, the U.S. set up Nhu Ding Diem as president of South Vietnam. Between him and his brother, they alienated more than half the population in short order with their….

Diffusion of innovation theory refers to the spread of ideas, materials, or strategies and can be applied both to counterterrorism policies or terrorist tactics themselves. By paying attention to the patterns of diffusion, governments can make more informed counterterrorism decisions or policies. At the same time, diffusion of innovation can show how terrorist tactics spread from one group to another or how extremism spreads throughout a region.
Applied to Boko Haram, the diffusion of innovation theory can show how terrorist tactics used by one extremist group spread or how extremist ideology spreads from one region or group to another. Likewise, diffusion of innovation can help the government of Nigeria better cultivate an informed and potentially evidence-based response policy by adopting counterterrorism tactics used by other nations in similar situations. For example, Boushey (2012) shows how public policy innovations are diffused. Punctuated equilibrium is a method of diffusion in which feedback both….

innovation, design, creativity strategy organizations: Kudler
There are several key components to effective business and marketing strategy. Some of the most eminent of these are the prudent usage of creativity, innovation, as well as an appropriate design that customers and potential partners can relate to. An analysis of the strategy of two companies in particular, Kudler Fine Foods and iordan Industries, readily confirms these facts, and serves as a model for other organizations to pattern themselves after.

There is an innate simplicity in the strategy employed by Kudler Fine Foods, which was the creation of Kathy Kudler in the final years of the 20th century. The food retailer still relies on the marketing image of its founder simply trying to merge two exceedingly pragmatic ideas into one innovative one -- that in which it could "create one store that would stock a wide selection of the freshest ingredients as well as….

Actions to Encourage Innovative Ideas

Major events are always a special concern to law enforcement and a test of its crowd control capabilities (Connors, 2007). Security management covers the entire duration of the events -- before, during and after. Even after the event, security management continues with the clearing up the place, administrative tasks, and debriefing and after-action report. The after-action report critiques all the operations conducted, such as deviations from the event plan and recommendations. Recommendations, in turn, tackle what should be kept and changes that should be made. These recommendations and changes may be innovative ideas from frontline officers on how to upgrade crowd control tactics. Frontline officers are valuable to the organization. They are more numerous than middle managers or frontline supervisors. They are also more knowledgeable about the situation and, at the same time, are the ones in daily contact with all stakeholders. For….

The Effectiveness of Organizational StructuresThe effectiveness of an organizational structure is contingent upon factors such as the nature of the business, the environment in which it operates, the specific goals it aims to achieve, its culture, its workers, its expectations, and even its clientele. This paper looks at two distinct organizational architectures: a strictly hierarchical top-down structure and a decentralized structure, to see how each might thrive or falter in different scenarios.Strictly Hierarchical Top-Down Organizational StructureIn a strictly hierarchical top-down structure, decision-making authority is concentrated at the top levels of the organization (Mookherjee, 2006). Lower-level employees are primarily responsible for executing the decisions made by their superiors. This structure is particularly effective in organizations where consistency and uniformity are critical. For example, in manufacturing industries such as automotive or pharmaceuticals, precision, safety, and consistency are all vitally important. Thus, a hierarchical structure is welcome as it supports the implementation of….

Neuropharmacology & the Military
It is hard to argue with the basic premise -- the U.S. military exists to promote, by means of force or by means of deterrence backed by the threat of force -- American interests. In military situations, winning is the most important thing, and all other factors are secondary. This has always been true of military endeavors, and that has not changed today. Given that, the U.S. military seeks to be the world's best military. It is the best-funded, and it is the largest. It is also the most technologically-advanced. Where on one side of the technology ledger, the U.S. military is looking at robotics as the next innovation in combat, it is also examining the role that neuropharmacology can provide with respect to its human members, especially combatants. The United States military has a keen interest in neuropharmacology and the effects that it can have on….

Warfare to Napoleonic Era Warfare
Napoleonic era warfare is the battlefield strategies applied by national armies mainly in the 18th century. The warfare technique was engineered by Napoleon, who is believed by many historians to have been its master. The Napoleon warfare and French revolution led to the revolution of military tactics used. Today's warfare in contrast, refers to the methods, concepts, and technologies that were used by soldiers during and after the Korean War and World War 2. These methods and concepts are complex due to the widespread advancement of information technology

In fact, modern armies are required to modernize constantly to keep up with the modern warfare. Therefore, Napoleonic era warfare is both different and similar from today's warfare. This report endeavors to compare today's warfare to Napoleonic era Warfare.

Contrasts

Today's warfare uses complex methods and concepts due to the advancement in technology. There were the invention and introduction of….

Many experts believe that there is not much of a parallel when it comes to the logistic operations in the Military and commercial organization. This proposal will show rather or not U.S. military logistics have no parallel in the commercial world -- from its scope and size to the lethal position of the term "mission-critical" throughout the course of wars. In this world, the soldier is the client waiting for products like bullets, food, water, medication and fuel for tanks and other war vehicles.

The purpose of the proposal is to gain a better understanding of the comparisons and differences among the two, with an end-state of affecting whether or not Military logistics measures or inline, superior or inferior to our equals….

Berlin Wall Falls/Soviet Union Collapses

Citation: Koeller, D. (2003), Fall of the Berlin Wall. WebChron.

UL: http://www.thenagain.info/webchron/world/berlinwallfall.rev.html

Tags: Political innovation, political/social upheaval, modernism in Europe

Summation: By the end of 1989, the Soviet-backed regimes of Eastern Europe no longer existed and the Berlin Wall, the quintessential symbol of the Cold War, had been decimated. This dissatisfaction with communism as practiced Soviet style was now being openly criticized, even in the ussian epublic, the so-called "homeland of communism." Extreme vocal critiques came first from the outlying republics and the ethnic minorities, many of who had been living in a tradition of autocracy for centuries. Gorbachev's message of change and openness, despite the appeal in the West, stripped the Soviet Union of structure, and….

Corporate Innovation
Chapters 8, 9 and 10 in obert Burgelman's book help answer one of the questions posed for this assignment: "How do you resolve the apparent conflict between innovation as abandonment and strategy as persistence?"

Burgelman points out (151) that some big corporations seem to cling to highly conservative goals such as "minimal fluctuation, stability, and predictability" - which explains why the U.S. automobile industry was sluggish back in the 1970s and 1980s when it came to innovations. And because of that recalcitrance, the auto industry (123) was subsequently forced into change by the stunning success the Japanese auto industry's more efficient cars achieved.

To avoid those kinds of corporate hindrances, Burgelman suggests a "new-venture division" (NVD) should be part of corporate strategy. And so, within the structure of a visionary company, one should expect to see "two structures and associated cultures" (125): one, for existing technologies and a second for….
