1000 Years of Revelation 20 1-6 Evangelical Christian

Words: 2553 Length: 8 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 4337443

1000 Years of evelation 20:1-6

Evangelical Christian perspective on 1000 years of evelation 20:1-6 (the Millennium)

Evangelical view of the millennium is dependent on hermeneutical approach towards the Bible as a whole, as well as our way of interpreting the book of evelation. Since realized millennialism is at times suspected for not adopting the "literal" approach, this becomes extensively misleading. An evangelical Christian can affirm the literal-nature of Scripture and also recognize all metaphors pertaining to a text, which recognize the fact that all the prophecies of Old Testament were fulfilled by Jesus. Our debate revolves around interpreting Scripture rather than concerning the commitment to Scripture (Jupp, 2009).

The interpretation of evelation 20 in the light of entire counsel of God is imperative as evelation tends to be the only book present in New Testament which discusses millennium. Charles Hodge believes the explanation of obscure passages to be essential in…… [Read More]

Gaming as an Instructional Strategy

Words: 10150 Length: 35 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 29985406

Knowles stated "The richest resources for learning reside in the adult learners themselves" (p. 66). n instructional strategy like gaming may help to facilitate tapping into the adult learner's experience. Through collaboration during the play of a game, learners may discuss prior experiences to aid in discovery of the correct answer. Gaming activities also permit peer feedback to be given to students based on their previous experiences. The millennial student desires immediate feedback and integrates their experiences into their learning (Tapscott, 1998). gain, through group discussion and collaboration, learners share previous experiences with others to confirm or not the correct answer.

By not tapping into the experience of adult learners, negative effects may result (Knowles, 2005). The adult learner identifies their experiences as who they are. In other words, their experiences help to define them as a person. dult learners, who perceive their experiences as being ignored or devalued, perceive…… [Read More]

A somewhat controversial and negative environmental outcome identified from the review of literature was the competitive component to gaming. In an evaluation conducted by Gruendling et al.(1991), some learners (5%) felt threatened by competitive nature of gaming (N = 40) and stated that gaming can cause unnecessary anxiety and stress. Bloom and Trice (1994) stated that too much competition can take the fun out of the process of learning for some and perhaps discourage student participation.

Psychosocial Outcomes

Psychosocial outcomes were also identified from the review of literature. Gaming was found to have encouraged and enhanced active participation and communication-social interactions, improve peer relationships, promote teamwork and collaboration, as well as decrease participants fear, tension, stress, and feelings of intimidation (Ballantine, 2003; Bays & Hermann, 1997; Berbiglia et al., 1997; Bloom & Trice, 1994; Cowen & Tesh, 2002; Dols, 1988; Fetro & Hey, 2000; Gifford, 2001;

AVON Calls on Foreign Markets Avon Believed

Words: 870 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 37722165

VON Calls on Foreign Markets

von believed that having regionalized new product development centers, supply chain operations, marketing and sales divisions would make them more competitive in foreign markets. Ironically the exact opposite happened, as the case illustrates. von's performance was drastically reduced and the duplication of effort crippled the organization. Unfortunately the highly decentralized, market-driven organizational structure that von had such high expectations for failure to deliver the results needed to keep the company growing. The net outcome of the highly decentralized organizational structure was a massive duplication of effort and cost overruns; the organizational structure turned into more of a liability than strategic asset. The goal of this case analysis is to explain and recommend how von can regain profitability while also attaining a higher level of internal new product development, production and selling efficiency. nother objective of this analysis is to evaluate how von can attain a…… [Read More]

As is the case with MNCs that have a global brand yet lack governance frameworks, the brand began to atrophy and lose relevance in core markets. When highly decentralized operations that include region-specific product development, supply chain and marketing strategies begin showing a negative Return on Investment (ROI) it is time to re-evaluate the strategy and seek to create a more unified strategic framework (Cohen, Roussel, 2004). Despite all of these regional variations in the core aspects of their value chain, the sales organization continued to attain sales levels necessary for the company to at least stay in business (Hill, Still, 1990). The lack of governance framework coupled with insights into the regional requirements of customers from a cultural, religious and ethnocentric level however stopped sales from being as potentially profitable as they could have been however.

Case Analysis

The decision to initially decentralize new product development, supply chain management and marketing initially appear to be an insightful one based on the broad differences between market segments Avon serves (Grammenou, 2009). There are significant differences between each of the markets

When a health care professional encounters an Asian patient in their practice, what are at least three characteristics he/she should consider in order to improve communication and cultural competence in delivering services to this patient and tell why those characteristics are important to consider.

Three characteristics that should be considered would include: family, communication and the concept of time. Family matters to Asian patients, as this is their foundation for strength and support. Communication is important, with these patients more focused on body languages and pauses (to signify substance vs. The actual words).

Dockers Is a Levi Strauss Brand That

Words: 1086 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 8871490

Dockers is a Levi Strauss brand that was initially launched in 1986. Throughout the 1990s Dockers rode a wave of success as business casual gained acceptance in the workplace, and khakis became the pants of choice in mens casual wear. Dockers was at the forefront of the business casual movement and its brand became synonymous with khakis. Such success spurred brand expansion; in 1998 Dockers launched a line of clothing for women, and eventually clothing for children. Over the next several years, the Dockers brand expanded internationally and entered other product categories, such as accessories and clothing beyond khaki pants.

With such expansion, though, came lack of focus as Dockers moved farther away from the early success of its original model. Karen iley-Grant, the current director of global consumer marketing for Dockers says that the brand "…went through a kind of midlife crisis, splintering the message and our advertising started…… [Read More]

Assemble Historical Data

Over the last several years, the role of the federal government in the housing market has been increasingly brought to the forefront. This is because of the implosion in prices and support that was provided by ashington to address these issues. However, since the 1930s the U.S. government has been directly providing support to the housing market (through the FHA). This was in response to the impact of private mortgages on the economy during the Great Depression.

As time went by, this role was expanded with ashington providing direct and indirect assistance through: Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac along with the Veterans Administration (VA). The combination of these factors allowed the federal government to help with the financing and purchasing of homes. As a result, the numbers of Americans who own properties have increased exponentially since the 1940's. Evidence of this can be seen in the below chart…… [Read More]

Performance management: Addressing three critical problems at the Los Angeles Tribune

A decline in advertising revenue

A loss of advertising revenue is one of the most critical concerns for the Tribune, given that without advertising the paper cannot function in either the short or the long-term. Unfortunately, because fewer people are reading print newspapers, advertisers are shifting online to venues which offer larger audiences and which are often free. The paper must convey the unique value of advertising through the Tribune to advertisers, given its audience and general outreach (Chapter 3, 145).

In the short-term, calculating the needed increase in overall revenue is of paramount importance. In the long-term, given the likely trends regarding advertising in the newspaper world, the desire to advertise in print at all will likely evaporate. Instead of fighting these trends, the Tribune must grow its online advertising base. Offering a…… [Read More]

Work Through Millenial's Eyes / Cooping With Millenials At Workplace

What do Millennial Want

What could be done

According to Charles Volkert, there is no one who can create a work environment that suits the need of all of his or her employees. This is particularly true for workers born after 1980 (Generation Y); such young workers often differ significantly from those born before, especially in terms of what they expect from their employers and their mentality towards work. For a manager to not only attract, but also maintain the best of post-1980 workers, it is key to adapt benefits and also formulate a motivational system that takes into account the unique preferences and attributes of these kinds of workers. However, before formulating such steps, it is crucial to first understand the Generation Y employees in detail (Volkert, 1).

In response to your recent request for an analysis of the survey of the company's employees which determined that the vast majority are from the so-called "Millennials" generation who are less than 35 years of age with less than 5 years of work experience or the so-called "Matures" generation which is comprised of workers older than 60 years with more than 30 years of work experience, this memorandum explains what the survey findings mean for the organization and provides a plan to address these impacts.

Human Resource Management HRM Is

Words: 5653 Length: 15 Pages Document Type: Literature Review Paper #: 10565782

Frank and Taylor (2004) warn that motivating employees is highly dependent on their specific wants and needs. An accounting firm that mostly hires conservative, serious-minded employees who value efficiency above all else are not likely to be motivated by the offer of a life coach or a concierge. They would probably be much more motivated by a good 401k plan. However, that does not mean that all types of organizations cannot get creative with their benefits.

The key is to creating an effective and creative employee benefit strategy is talk to the employees and find out what they really want. According to Gajewski (2005) it is critically important to modify "the corporate culture to balance employee needs and desires with organizational objectives" (p. 4). Therefore, if companies can change the corporate culture in such as way that satisfies both management and employees, then they would be remiss not to do…… [Read More]

Market Analysis of Tiny Houses

Words: 710 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Other (not listed above) Paper #: 39679528

Tiny House: Target Market Analysis

The tiny house market for homes "typically between 100 and 500 square" has a wide demographic outreach in terms of its age range: "Millennials, who have limited funds and might not be able to afford a traditional mortgage because they have to pay off college loans; and Baby Boomers, who are retiring and seeking ways to stretch their pension by finding affordable homes" (Hyde n.d.). The concerns of both groups are strikingly similar. Idealistic Millennials embrace the environmental benefits provided by such homes and Baby Boomers are seeking to save money on utilities. However, demographically, the impressive size of the Millennial generation makes this an even more attractive potential target market: "By sheer numbers, the 75 million members of the millennial generation overtook baby boomers last year" (Lee 2016).

Political realignment is an aspect, which is in evitable in America. It is evident that the political scenes in America today are changing from one state to the other. It is clear across the nation that realignment is not only bringing significant changes in the political scenes, but the changes are evident and are affecting the social and economic circles too. The big picture in political circles in America is that of minority parties rising up to become the most influential across the board. On the other hand, people in the majority parties have to stir up their confidence to catch up with the completion. In this context, political realignment is one of the major features in America (Winograd & Hais, 2009).

Future of Unions in America Union Membership

Words: 4625 Length: 13 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 21689548

Future of Unions in America

Union membership has been steadily decreasing since the 1970's. But since the history of union membership has been filled with short, fervent periods of rapid increases in membership, followed by long periods of stagnation and decrease in membership, this may not seem to be cause of worry. However, while the current decrease in the number of union workers may seem to be just another slump, the fact that it has lasted more than thirty years, is disturbing. In that time, the world and it's economy has dramatically changed, and one must ask the question "could this be the twilight of the American labor movement?" If unions are going to, not only survive, but flourish and expand their influence, the entire labor movement must change it's very nature; expanding it's scope of interest, membership, and international relationships. This essay will examine the history of the union…… [Read More]

Exegesis of Revelation Chapter 20

Words: 4904 Length: 15 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 68771338

Book of Revelation is a unique portion of the New Testament. Unlike the other Books found in the latter part of the Bible, the Book of Revelation is not presented as a historical document or an instructional discussion, but is essentially a prophetic book, intended to deliver a glimpse of upcoming history that affects the happenings of the church. Also more mystery and disagreement surrounds the Book of Revelation than any other part of the New Testament. hy is this so? One reason why there is so much disharmony in the interpretations of the Book of Revelation is that there are different perspectives from which this apocalyptic book could be understood. The magnificence of revelation is apparent in its intersection of shared imagery, language and style. It is often beneficial to read revelation alongside the Old Testament. Bible scholars have found up to 500 references from the Old Testament in…… [Read More]

Assessing integrated business communication today

Ultimately, business is about serving customers, and customers will not understand the value one's business can give them without effective communication. However, the need for effective communication is not limited to people who buy an organization's goods and services. The ability to frame a cohesive organizational message begins with strong, effective workplace relationships between employees and employers and then spills out into the other facets of the workplace.

Technology

Given the profound shifts that have occurred in workplace communication, it is necessary even for well-functioning organizations to review their standard operating procedures. Workers, thanks to the availability of online technology, are often spaced out farther from one another than ever before yet are also far more constantly connected: the…… [Read More]

Rev 20 1-6 Meaning

Words: 2042 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 26403405

Revelation 20:1-6 describes the "thousand years" in which Satan is imprisoned and the martyrs for Christ are resurrected and placed upon thrones to judge and reign with Christ for a thousand years. The passage also makes reference to a "first resurrection" implying that there will be a second. Yet, because of the nature of the Scriptural verses is visionary and imagistic, they have been the source of contentious interpretations over the years. Do the verses refer to a time that is yet to come (premillennial) or a time that we are already in (postmillennial) or to no real time at all but rather to only a figurative sense of the spiritual dimensions of the Christian way to heaven (amillennial)?

Poythress states that Rev 20:1-6 contains several different "levels of communication" -- the linguistic, the visionary, the referential, and the symbolic.

Each of these levels offers a unique way of looking…… [Read More]

HR Response to Intergenerational Differences

Words: 739 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 71276287

Human esources

With the baby boomers, Generation X, and the millennials, there are three generations in the modern workforce. While there have always been multigenerational workforces, these three generations in particular have specific and pronounced differences reflecting the rapidly-changing world and their place in that world. In the past, it was reasonable that one generation would be more or less like its predecessors in the workforce, but that is not the case today and this poses some unique challenges for the human resources profession.

One of the biggest generational differences is with the role that work plays in one's life. Millennials in particular seek work that is fulfilling, and they do not see work as something that simply is to be tolerated in order to pay the bills. Baby boomers may have been able to accept a good-paying job they disliked in exchange for this pay and security, but millennials…… [Read More]

Hipster Consumer Behavior

Following the publication of Norman Mailer's essay, "The White Negro" in 1957, the term "hipster" has become part of the American lexicon. The image of hipsters has changed in fundamental ways since that time, though, and marketers interested in this segment are therefore faced with some significant challenges in fine-tuning their marketing mixes to appeal to young adults who define themselves as hipsters or who are attracted to the image for other reasons. This paper provides a review of the relevant peer-reviewed and scholarly literature concerning hipster consumer behavior, including a background, a description of the lifestyle branding theoretical foundation that can be used to formulate marketing initiatives, and the findings that emerged from the research. Finally, a summary of the research and important findings are presented in the conclusion.

One major human resources issue at hand is the generational gap between workers, in particular with respect to generational frictions. Today's workforce is demographically diverse. Because of our aging population, many baby boomers are staying in the workforce longer than before, there are Gen X and Gen Y and now the millennial generation is entering the workforce. Yet, there are substantial differences between these generations, and those differences create certain frictions. Generation X workers are the most experienced, and the oldest, yet they are also the least likely to have mastery of modern technology; millennials are the opposite. aised with technology - the youngest ones have never experienced a world without the Internet -- they are adept with modern technology, but lack meaningful real world experience.

Crafting a Compensation and Benefits Plan: Looking Ahead in the Modern Workplace
Increasingly, technologically-driven businesses have become more and more reliant upon attracting top talent to gain a competitive edge. Perhaps the most obvious example of this is the Google organization. Google’s Internet search engine is virtually synonymous with searching on the Internet itself.

This enable employees to remain focused on work as well as removes many of the inconveniences of modern life (Cain, 2017).

The Five Forces That Shape Competitive Strategy

Words: 1941 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 39741145

Five Forces

The concept of the five forces is rooted in the idea that these are the five forces that influence whether an industry or company can be profitable. A company, when formulating its strategy, will seek to find ways to shift these forces and manipulate them in ways that allow the company to be profitable, preferably sustainably profitable. As Porter (2008) elaborates, the five forces that shape competitive strategy are the bargaining power of buyers, the bargaining power of suppliers, the threat of new entrants, the threat of substitutes and the intensity of rivalry within the industry.

About the Company

The company to which the five forces will be applied is Tesla Motors, the electric car maker. Tesla is a relatively new player in the industry, has a tremendous reputation with respect to product quality, but has yet to turn a profit, has a tremendous bleed rate, but it…… [Read More]

.....entrepreneur one must endure multiple hardships. These hardships define people as leaders or failures. Women in the last few decades have amidst gender inequality, started businesses. This had led to a major growth in the number of women entrepreneurs in a predominantly male-dominated area. However, while women entrepreneurship has written, the persistent inequalities and continued views of women have led to the assumption that entrepreneurship may still be gendered. Meaning, society views only men as the main bread winners and capable of being effective leaders that entrepreneurs are defined as. This paper supports this assumption and will provide evidence of gendered entrepreneurship as well as literature that goes against such notion, demonstrating the potential for the gender gap to narrow in the future.

To first understand the potential of gendered entrepreneurship, one must first define it. Gendered entrepreneurship is a hypothesis considering entrepreneurship to have gendered patterns. The UK was…… [Read More]

Using Emotional Intelligence in the Workplace

Emotional Intelligence and the Role it Plays in Project Portfolio Management

One of the most important and essential qualities of leadership needed in today's multigenerational business world is Emotional Intelligence (EI). EI is a "people smart" type of intelligence -- it enables an individual to read a person and provide the right kind of emotional feedback and/or responses to that person's needs. Leaders who demonstrate strong emotional intelligence are able to improve project performance because they focus on the individuals within a team rather than simply or exclusively on goals and procedures (Cacamis & Asmar, 2014). EI allows one to be person-centered, oriented towards responding to emotional cues that the other is consciously or unconsciously displaying in their words, behavior, body language, and communications. Effective use of EI can help organizations to promote a stronger workplace culture, stronger teams, and stronger performance overall (Den, Deanne & Belschak, 2012). In a…… [Read More]

Whereas those educators, that are often looked down upon will be ineffective in reaching out to their student.

Sociological Analysis of Hyperconnectivity

Hyperconnectivity is a fairly new concept that it is indigenous to the 21st century. The term was coined only a few years ago by Canadian social scientists as a way to describe how people are connect via machines, networked organizations, and networked societies overall. Thus, this is a term that could have been coined now. "Hyper" is usually an adjective to describe a state of excess excitement and unruly energy; "hyper" as it exists as a prefix coming from the Greek language, means abnormal, unusual, and appearing in quantities beyond what is normal. Both definitions can be useful when considering the global culture or state of hyperconnectivity that much of the world finds itself in during the 21st century. We have mobile devices that connect to the internet wherever we are and wherever there is an internet connection. We have long since had computers and…… [Read More]

Key concepts include paper -- data trends unemployment, inflation, GDP growth, expansionary fiscal policy tools, FOMC, easy money policy tools terms class.

What is the current macroeconomic situation in the U.S.

The United States is no longer mired in a full-blown recession as it was in 2008, but the process of economic recovery has been long, slow, and onerous. At present, unemployment is hovering around 7.9%. This reflects a slight increase from the last quarter. The U.S. seems to be in a precarious position, neither in full-blown recessionary mode but not entirely recovered. Of particular concern is the fact that "the increase [in unemployment] was much sharper for millennials, up from 11.5% the month before and 10.9% in November 2012" (Kingkade 2013). Young people were particularly hard-hit by the recession.…… [Read More]

Multigenerational Issues in Leadership

Words: 8003 Length: 30 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 75308117

multigenerational issues of leadership in the workplace. The discussion explores the differences between the traditionalist generation, baby boomers, Generation X and Generation Y the discussion also focuses on how the differences between these generations have affected the nursing shortage that America is now faced with.

Our discussion examined the nursing shortage which has been caused by the ageing baby boom population and the lack of new recruits. It seems evident from the research conducted that the nursing shortage has also been caused by job dissatisfaction. Many nurses are dissatisfied with their jobs because of increased working hours, inadequate pay and stressful working conditions.

This discussion also focuses on the characteristics of the four generations mentioned above. The traditionalist generation is known for the top-down leadership style that offers very little feedback and allows management to have all the power in the organization. The traditionalist generation is composed of individuals that…… [Read More]

Economics and Happiness

Isaac Singer's novels The Slave and Satan in Goray share a great number of similarities. Both novels are centered on the theme of religion, and delve deeply into a number of passions. Further, both books share Singer's repulsion with the slaughter of animals. All in all, however, The Slave is a much more subtle and personal look at the role of religion than the larger than life look at religious Messianic fervor depicted in Satan in Goray.

Isaac Bashevis Singer was born near arsaw as the son of a rabbi, and moved to the U.S. just before I. He began to write professionally as a arsaw journalist between I and II. His early works of fiction were novellas and short stories. Satan in Goray appeared in 1935, just before Singer immigrated to the United States. The Slave was written in 1962, when Singer was firmly entrenched in…… [Read More]

Harley Davidson is somewhat hamstrung by a narrow product range and demographic, but there are some good opportunities for the brand. The biggest opportunity lies with the millennials. HD is a brand that relies on a long-term relationship with its customers to drive revenues, and this occurs over a 20-40-year period in their lives. The company's recent run of success was based on the baby boom generation, and while that is declining the next major cohort is the millennials (Ets-Hokin, 2011). HD needs to start planning now to capture this market at a relatively young age and hold it for three or four decades in order to enjoy sustained success. The other major opportunity is with overseas growth. While HD has long struggled to break into international markets, these markets still hold considerable promise. The Middle East and China in particular are good markets where wealthy clients have plenty of…… [Read More]

Demand and Supply

Demand and Supply

There are a number of different factors that Edgar needs to take into consideration with his idea to invest in the gas station business. Let's pretend for a minute that he is not just paying the fair market value for the gas station -- he is -- and simply discuss his theory about the economics of the gas market. If the market for gas stations is even remotely efficient, the price of that gas station will be the present value of expected future cash flows, meaning that all of the knowledge about the determinants of the gas market are already priced into what Edgar is going to pay. His profit comes from the value that he can add to the station through his own management. But let us digress and get Edgar up to speed with what the market has already priced into that gas station.

Psychographic Population Segments Part B Discuss 6

psychographic population segments. Part B: Discuss (6) main social/Cultural

In order to discuss the three primary psychographic population segments that are existent today, it is necessary to clarify the meaning of psychographic segmentation. This term merely means stratifying people according to their attitudes, belief systems, opinions, activities, behaviors, and interests. The most readily available and convenient way to stratify the current population, then, based on these factors is to do so by generation. Thus, the three principle psychographic population segments involve the so-called Baby Boomer Generation, Generation X (which is sometimes grouped together with Generation Y) and the generation known as the millennials or "Generation Me" as affectionately termed by renowned author Jean Twenge.

There are several really salient social and cultural trends that have impacted online exchange. Of these, one of the more relevant today includes reputation. eputation is best defined as the public perception of a certain company,…… [Read More]

Sharon Helgason Gallagher and the Art Book in the Internet Age

headline from May 2015. "Picasso's omen of Algiers Smashes Auction Record," is how the BBC phrased it, on May 12, noting that "Picasso's omen of Algiers has become the most expensive painting to sell at auction, going for $160 million" (Gompertz 2015). In the frequently dicey and volatile early twenty-first century economy, it is clear that high art has managed to maintain its value in a way that the mortgage of a Florida homebuyer or the Beanie Baby collection of a midwestern housewife have not. It is now almost eighty years since alter Benjamin issued his famous meditation on what precisely the value of the visual arts could be under late capitalism, "The ork of Art in an Age of Mechanical Reproduction." The subject of what art means in an age where reproductions of art are ubiquitous has been around for a while. But Benjamin had never seen the Internet.…… [Read More]

Startup Luxury Brand

Words: 3030 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Research Proposal Paper #: 36470034

Luxury Brand

The business idea is to start a luxury brand. The concept of luxury is difficult to pin down, because it is relative. Marketers have misused the term commonly, but despite this, and the emergence of a substantial grey area, the category of luxury brand is still understood fairly well by consumers. Theoretically, luxury falls at one end of a luxury-necessity axis. A luxury brand, therefore, implies that the product's benefits fall almost entirely towards the luxury end of this spectrum (Heine, 2014). Any given product has a certain intrinsic value -- a car is a means of transportation. But luxury implies that the intrinsic value is a relatively small portion of the total value. Most of the value in a Bugatti Veyron lies far beyond its utility as a transportation machine. The same can be said for any luxury brand -- very little value in a Hermes scarf…… [Read More]

Generation Y in the Workplace

Clifford and Behrstock's (2009) policy brief and study report aims at aiding district, state, and notably -- school-level heads -- in acquiring a better understanding of the generation Y (Millennial generation) so as to better support and manage teachers. The goal is improving the learning-teaching process, for present as well as future student generations. Drawing on studies from the educational field and beyond, this report explains how leaders at the school level can make sure the profession of teaching profits from millennial teachers' talents. It starts with a review of workforce and sociological research on this generation (i.e., Gen Y/Millennials), following which, it offers literature review results of strategies to retain emerging Generation Y talent in the nation's private sector. This is followed by a recent analysis of practices for new-teacher support and retention. Lastly, it provides strategies that may be implemented by efficient school…… [Read More]

SEIIC is in a technical insurance business. While the business has changed from its traditional characteristics since 9/11, those changes were not outlined in the case so we actually know very little about the challenges that the company is facing in the industry today, just that they are struggling. The business environment is getting more competitive. This could mean that there is competitive from foreign providers, or just new domestic companies entering this business. Insurance was always a quantitative business in nature, so it is also possible that with the rise in built-in diagnostics, the role of the inspector for heavy equipment has changed significantly and may even be less of a technical skill than it once was. Certainly, the skill set demanded of the workers is going to be slightly different. Otherwise, the way that government regulates the insurance business has not changed much,…… [Read More]
