Case Study # 5

1) The Search engine makes money by having advertisements clicked on the page and through Ad words so when someone clicked a key word Google would get a big percentage. The exportability of a search engine like Google is that they are looking to expand and be known overseas, but at the same time when they do try and expand each culture is different along with the governments (i.e. the French government and USA govt.) With the Business model the exportability was very good (as shown in Exhibit 1) they expanded and teamed up and got “Cost-per-click basis which almost doubled their revenue.

2) Many governments appeared threatened by Google because of a few reasons, first its different cultures so when the USA came into a foreign territory and how we came in they got scared of being dominated by a larger corporation. The next reason is for example in some of these foreign cultures the government saw that the sponsored links are portrayed as trademark counterfeiting. Every country basically did the same thing for instance France sued them for trademark counterfeiting and the court was on Frances side and each made their own search engine to top Google. In Germany they sued Google for using “Gmail” because it was trademarked so they lost that case and had to change the name to Google Mail, and spent a lot of money to create “Theseus” to top Google. In Japan they sued Google for censorship and the government made their own search engine that was $885 Million dollars.

3) The threat that is portrayed in my opinion is imaginary because when Google came in to these foreign countries they acted as a “bully” and came in to make money and did not care about the culture at all and I feel like the government’s reacted by instead of doing business with the USA they made their own search engine so they could control everything about it. If Google wants…...

...Arif, Umer MGMT 303 Mary Ann Bautista Aug 9, 2013 The Temptations of Tempting Case Study 1. A senior manager at a growing business and you’re ready to add employees. Your HR manager has recommended a temp-to-perm policy. You know the advantages of this approach, but what might some of the disadvantages? As a person who has worked many temporary positions, if I had to look at the disadvantages of temp to perm I am not sure what I would say. I think the biggest disadvantage would have to be having to retrain a new person every time someone didn’t work out. The more time you spend training someone the less time you and that person spend doing the job they were hired to do. There also may be a decrease in company morale. If you bring in a temp working putting in the same hours every week and the same amount of hard work as your permanent employees, but they are not getting the same benefits this could lead to problems (Schaefer, 2005). Studies show that there are more safety issues in places where there are a lot of temporary workers hired. It is never safe to assume that a temporary worker is able to work unsupervised no matter how much training they may have (Schaefer, 2005). 2. Assume that you’re a prospective job seeker (which you may very well be). What do you personally see as the advantages and disadvantages of taking a temp-to-perm position? Under what circumstances are you most likely to take a temp-to-perm position? ...

Module 5 Case Study

...Module 5 Case Study Scott Daniels’ job was to lead a team of people from both the medical instruments company and his own firm to identify and resolve quality-related issues with the EIS and to develop a plan to help prevent quality problems from happening on future projects. According to the case study the first thing Scott’s team did was to research the problem with the EIS. I am underlining this because the first step in any problem solving situation is critical. Also, Scott’s team created a cause-and-effect diagram similar to the one in figure 8-2, they also created pareto chart to help analyze the many complaints the help desk received and documented about the EIS. So I asked myself if there is any reason why they used only the cause-and-effect diagram and the pareto chart among the seven Basic tools of Quality. Did Scott daniels and his team apply the basic problem-solving technique or process. I found out through my researches that there are SEVEN STEP PROBLEM SOLVING TECHNIQUE The History The method was developed by The Quality Management Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA, with its purpose being to find suitable solutions to problems identified. The Principle The method is based upon PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) and SDCA (Standard-Do-Check-Act). It looks for the causes of problems, aimed at improvement. It is process-oriented. The original wording of the method consists of the following steps: Problem – Data – Cause – Solution – Results – Deployment –......

Chapter 5 Case Study

...Management 349 3/20/13 Case Study Step 1: Uhe’s employees having a high moral can lead to a downside. People that are fully satisfied have no need to improve, they are happy with mediocrity. What the owners should do to prevent this stagnation is to continuously set difficult goals. By doing so the employees will strive to complete these goals and reward their completion. This will not only allow your company to continuously improve, but it will allow your employees to feel more fulfilled at their jobs. Theory X is a good way to qualify these employees right now. However, they are only categorized by that because of the way management has motivated them. Without any incentive it’s easy to be lazy or lack ambition because you have no reason to do otherwise. Theory Y only works when people have ambitious goals to achieve and have incentive for doing such. Setting constant challenging goals will allow the theory Y employee’s to shine. Yet, this may not be the case for every employee at the company. Proper motivation will only showcase the Theory Y people and expose the Theory X people. Uhe’s owners should employ the various motivation factors that can reduce the importance of hygiene factors. This means that with the goals they set give them a set bonus for achieve said goal. Not only give them the bonuses but make a leader board to showcase the employees that consistently excel. Then if certain people met their goals, then throw a company party where you pay for food......

Case Study Week 5

...Case Study Week 5 Eric A Brock DeVry University Case Study Week 5 Before I explain how you can apply risk management to our corporate security policy, I want to take a look at the basics of risk management. The risk management process involves answering three simple questions, what assets do you have that are worth protecting, what are the known threats to those assets, what can you do to keep those threats from actually occurring. When it comes to the assets that are worth protecting, your mind probably immediately jumps to your company's hardware inventory. First, it should educate the company's employees as to what is expected of them regarding cybersecurity (prevention). Second, it should be a guide that dictates the appropriate response to a variety of security incidents. To accomplish these two goals, you need to limit your policy to a manageable size. If you're trying to educate users on security strategies, keep the documentation short and simple. Users will usually ignore anything that's over a couple of pages long or that's overly complex. If you want to get technical, the real asset is your data. Since authentication credentials are the gateway to your data, they should also be treated as an asset that needs protecting. Clearly, passwords can be disclosed by users with no malicious intent. The resulting damage, however, can be just as serious as if the security breach were malicious. Therefore, when making your list of known...

...Case Study 7 DeAngela L. Dixon Deangelaldixon@yahoo.com- GM591-WBREY September 19, 2010 Part I: Group Development Bruce Tuckman developed a four stage model of group development in 1975 he added a fifth stage. The first stage is forming and that is the “getting to know each other” phase. This stage is basic orientation (Schermerhorn, Hunt and Osborn 2010) and the group members identify with other group members. This stage also defines the task and how to approach it. The second stage is storming, “dealing with tensions and defining group tasks “(Schermerhorn, Hunt and Osborn 2010)”. Within this stage group members attempt to organize the task and chaos way occurs. Questions may arise about who is going to be responsible for what, what the rules are, and what the reward system is. The third stage is norming and that is “building relationships and working together “(Schermerhorn, Hunt and Osborn 2010)”. This is the stage where the group members agree on how the group operates and share a sense of group belonging. The fourth stage is performing and that is when the group is “maturing in relationships and task performance” (Schermerhorn, Hunt and Osborn 2010). This is when the group becomes affective in meetings the groups’ objectives. The group is able to handle disagreements and complex problems in a mature manner. The fifth stage is adjourning, “disbanding and celebrating accomplishments “(Schermerhorn, Hunt and Osborn 2010)”. This......

...Case Study N0 5 SEC – 320: Risk Loss Prevention, Emergency Planning Professor: S. W. Smith DeVry University Prepared by: MLZ Sunday, November 16, 2014 Table of Contents Introduction 3 Municipal Emergency Response to a Dirty Bomb Incident (Orlando, FL) 4 Low-level Nuclear Material Stateside and Abroad 5 Logistics of Decontamination 6 Disposal of Contaminated Property 7 Clean-Up Materials 8 Conclusion 10 References 11 Introduction According to the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission a “Radiological Dispersal Device (RDD) commonly known as Dirty Bomb is the combination of conventional explosives for example plain dynamite mixed with some radioactive materials.” If detonation of a dirty bomb would occur in a place consider as a vacation destination such as Orlando, Florida which happens to be a dense populated tourist location, where we find many Theme Park attractions, a major international airport, and location for many manufacturing facilities and important businesses, it would create great chaos, mayhem and devastation. Reason for the major chaos and despair is because as I just explained a dirty bomb uses dynamite, and other explosives to scatter radioactive dust, smoke, and other materials in order to inflict bodily harm, destroy property, and finally cause overwhelming mayhem with a dose of radioactive contamination. Most of the danger of a dirty bomb would come from the blast of the explosion itself; this in metropolitan......

...QUESTIONS 1. What does this case imply about the supply of and demand for employers and the implications for businesses? The case implies that there is a high demand for employees especially in the high tech industry but the supply is low and has not been met by the volume of the demand making the implications critical for businesses. These organizations are having to step out of the box and go the extra length to ensure they are able to acquire the savvy tech from an early stage. Using tools outside of the normal resume check alongside the educational background, these Companies are able to now “catch them young” by scouting for qualified candidates with needed skills, and recruiting them from colleges instead of waiting till they have completely finished their degree. For instance IBM has made use of its famous Watson computer in certain top schools giving students a chance to challenge the computer. The outcome of these approach will help IBM to narrow down which students to consider and they will work towards luring such students to consider a career at IBM (Robins 2013). As the competition is quite high in this industry, business always have to be creative in their search for talents, be on their toes and pull out all stops in trying to convince potential candidates to choose them instead of their competitors. While some are still struggling to come up with various approach to help them acquire more qualified candidate, the race is still on for the rest in trying to......

...Shannen Amanda Dinata BUMT 4910 Dr. Gary Anderson February 18, 2015 Case Study Homework Analysis pg. 350 1. Why did Sandra Nieto turn to micro lending as a source of capital for her business? She turns to micro lending as a source of capital for her business because she has no other choice. She did not have enough money to design. She was an illegal immigrant and she did not have a credit history. Thus, no bank would be willing to lend her money. Also, she learned about micro lending from a friend in Colombia. 2. What factors made Sandra’s company a business that did not qualify for mainstream financing (specifically discuss the C’s of credit)? Banks need to know what we own, what we owe and what our business finances are. There are five C’s of credit and they are collateral, character, capacity, capital and conditions. Collateral includes property or assets that is pledged against the loan that the lender can take and sell of the loan is not repaid. Character is the ability to borrow money and she did not have a credit history. Capacity means that the business cash flow must be sufficient to cover the monthly loan payments. The money she earned from working and selling her work went to daily costs. 3. When, if ever would you advise Sandra to approach mainstream lenders? She should approach mainstream lenders when she has a business plan set up and when she starts earning profit. 4. What challenges and setbacks have Sandra overcome? She has overcome......

Case Study 3-5

...Candace Dymally 15 September 2015 Professor Miller ACC 4321 Case Study 3-5 International versus U.S. Standards Financial information presented in financial statements require key elements that make it valuable to users to derive meaningful conclusions about the trends in an entity's financial performance and position over time. The conceptual framework categorizes these elements into fundamental or enhancing qualitative characteristics, depending on how they affect the decision usefulness of information. One of the qualitative characteristics stated is comparability. For accounting information to be comparable, accounting standards and policies must be applied consistently from one period to another and from one region to another. In this case, the financial statements of a company operating in Australia would comparable to a U.S. company’s financial statement. IASB is attempting to bridge the gap between U.S. GAAP and international accounting principles which would make it easier for companies to interact with one another despite the location. Reliability is another characteristic of financial accounting information. Information is reliable when a user can depend upon it to be materially accurate and faithfully represent the information that it claims to present. Significant misstatements or omissions in financial statements reduce the reliability of information contained in them. The amounts reported by U.S. companies for property, plant, and equipment......

Week 5 Case Study

...Week 5 Case Study Risk Management Policy By Jovan Kirby SEC 280 Professor T. Campbell DeVry University Risk management is the process of making and carrying out decisions that will minimize the adverse effect of accidental losses upon our company. The risk management process is vital to the personal health and safety of employees and the safety of the public. In financial terms, it is vital to our ability to pursue our goals, commence and operate programs, and to perform duties in an efficient and professional manner. We will implement a plan to cover credit card theft and as well as internal breach of personal company information. Some ways to protect against credit card information being compromised is this. We have implemented some ways such as firewalls, restricted policies, and proxy servers. We will go through each one and explain why and how they will make this company stronger and better. First firewalls using a firewall will help build a strong defense. A firewall is a software program or piece of hardware that helps screen out hackers, viruses, and worms that try to reach your computer over the Internet. For example, if a firewall is configured with a rule to block Telnet access, then the firewall will drop packets destined for TCP port number 23, the port where a Telnet server application would be listening. The role of a firewall is to prevent malicious traffic reaching the resources that it is protecting. Some security experts feel this is an......

Unit 5 Case Study

...Unit 5 Case Study Halstead Unit 5 Case Study: Cari’s Story A. How can an infection in Cari’s nasal passages and pharynx spread into her sinuses? The infection in Cari’s nasal passages and pharynx was able to spread into her sinuses due to the fact of how close the passages and sinuses are to each other, and the sinuses being a drainage area for the nasal passages. B. What is the cough reflex? Describe the process that Cari’s respiratory system is using to clear her lungs by coughing. The cough reflex involves deep inhalation followed by complete closure of the glottis and strong exhalation with sudden opening of the glottis, and forcing air through the upper respiratory passages. The cough reflex is used to clear sputum and irritants that are in the nasal passages and pharynx. Cari’s respiratory system is forcing out mucus in order to maintain enough space within her lungs for oxygen. There are cilia in her trachea that is moving mucus up from the lungs. When there is much mucus, it triggers the cough reflex. C. Which structures found in the terminal bronchioles and alveoli normally would protect Cari’s lungs from infectious pathogens and particulate matter? Goblet cells secrete mucus to trap particles while the cilia work by moving mucus towards the pharynx for removal. Macrophages are also found in the terminal bronchioles and alveoli; they engulf and destroy infectious pathogens and particulate matter. D. How would the resistance of Cari’s......

Case Study- 5 Stages

...Case Study-Week 3 There are five stages to group development. Many groups are unable to make it to the final stage and find it uncomfortable to work within the group they are in. Also they find it almost impossible to finish the tasks that are expected of them. The five stages are as follows: I. Forming stage- this is the initial stage. The primary concern is the entry of the members of the group. Multiple questions are asked as the members within the group begin to identify with other members and the group itself. The main purpose in this stage is getting to know each other, determining the tasks at hand, defining the group rules, and considering the acceptable behavior within the group. II. Storming stage- The is a period of high emotion and tension within the group and among the members. Hostility and fighting between members may occur and the group may experience changes. Coalitions and Cliques may form within the groups. Outside demands may create tension and pressure. Expectations tend to be clarified and the attention gradually shifts to obstacles standing in the way of the group goals. Group members start to understand one another and efforts are made to accomplish group goals and satisfy individual needs. III. Norming stage- this is the initial integration of the group. The point where the group really begins to come together as a unit. There is a new sense of harmony after the storming stage and members try and maintain a positive......
