For the Session Long Project, you will be asked to select an organization to use as a focus for your application of economic ideas. You must use the same organization for all 5 SLPs.

Just below is a link to a listing of 27 companies, all have common stock that has been issued to the public (called a public corporation), and all are on the most widely used index of how well or poorly the general stock market is doing, the S&P 500 Index.

In the left column is the trading symbol of the company, if you have seen a stock ticker these are the symbols that crawl by. The next column is the company name, and the third is a brief identification of the industry the company is a part of. I have provided companies from several different industries so that you have a good variety from which to choose.

See company choices.

Using Google will be an excellent way of finding out more details of what the main business is of the chosen company, and other general information that will be useful for the assignment. If you know how to use a financial data base you can use the trading symbol to access information, but this will not be necessary so do not worry if you do not know how to do this, the use of Google should be more than sufficient.

For the Module 1 component of the Project, please address the following questions in a 2 to 3-page MS Word document:
1.Identify and briefly describe the organization you are going to use. Why do you think it will be an interesting focus for your application of macroeconomic ideas?
2.Select three macroeconomic indicators from the link below that you feel have the greatest impact on the operations and/or planning for your SLP organization. Remember that an economic indicator measures a change in the general or in…...

...strategic concern. Hence, partners’ suspicions regarding each other’s intents within and outside the alliance are less crippling. Thus, the benefits of interorganizational trust are lower. Hypothesis 3. The positive relation between trust and alliance performance is stronger in alliances in which the potential for interpartner competition is high than in alliances in which the potential for interpartner competition is low. Trust, Environmental Uncertainty, and Alliance Performance Environmental uncertainty results from changes in the economic conditions faced by an organization that are outside its control and hard to anticipate (Dess & Beard, 1984; Koopmans, 1957), such as instability or unpredictability in markets (Aldrich, 1979; Dess & Beard, 1984; Wholey & Brittain, 1989). Environmental uncertainty demands speedy and responsive decisions (Huber, Miller, & Glick, 1990: 13; Mintzberg, 1978). This pressure requires organizations to engage in significant scanning of their environment in search of accurate and reliable information that enables them to interpret and act upon the threats and opportunities facing them (Aguilar, 1967; Anderson & Paine, 1975; Hambrick, 1982). Unpredictable changes in the environment stand to affect the performance of an alliance (Harrigan, 1985; Kogut, 1989). To sustain performance in an uncertain environment, alliance partners need to monitor changes and adjust the alliance’s strategy accordingly (Harrigan, 1985). Anderson and Paine argued that......

“What Motivates You Towards Choosing the Career/ Job Orientation You Have Chosen? Discuss and Explain with Reference to Three of the Motivation Theories Discussed During the Lectures”

...“What motivates you towards choosing the career/ job orientation you have chosen? Discuss and explain with reference to three of the motivation theories discussed during the lectures” “Why do we do what we do?” Motivation plays a critical role in achieving goals and is an important role in our journey to success. It helps the individual in many different ways, mainly to get started, to keep moving, to do more than others, and it makes the journey much more fun. Pinder (in Ambrose et al, 1999) explains work motivation as the set of internal and external forces that initiate work-related behavior, and determine its form, direction, intensity, and duration. It involves the biological, emotional, social and cognitive forces that activate behavior. Thus, it is concerned with what drives a person’s choice of what to do, how hard they try and how long they keep persisting. The Theory of Self Determination is a human motivation theory focusing on the extent to which people’s thinking, feeling and behavior are the result of the choices they make, of their own free will, without any influence from external forces (Maltby et al, 2010). Developed by Deci and Ryan (1985), this theory, claims that people who choose life professions are basically motivated to seek positive experiences and avoid negative experiences. One of its dynamic ideas is the distinction between extrinsic and intrinsic motivation. What drives me towards the career of counseling, consist of both intrinsic and......

...work. The last source that I feel like will contribute to my paper is the child specialist article. My whole paper revolves around child welfare specialist and child abuse and neglect. So I feel like this article is very helpful because it lets you know exactly what the role of child welfare specialist is. Because of the ever growing numbers of children with learning disabilities, a new idea, one of a “child specialist” is presented. According to Sapir (1984) the role of the “child specialist” is clear and the ethics and philosophy supporting this method are deliberated. The importance of this new role originates from the many socio-economic forces in our society which are counter-productive to children’s best welfares. 4 Reference Johnson, C.F. (2004).

Choosing a Computer

...Choosing a Computer Jolene Beaulieu EN1320 Ms. Gussow 6/28/2014 Choosing a computer can be difficult, just from the utter quantity of technological choices a person has to make. There are various models of systems that a person can choose from, they can choose from netbooks, laptops, or desktops. Next, a person has to think about what specifications they would like to have; this will consist of the measure of RAM needed, which processor and graphics card would be best appropriate for their needs, and which hard drive will be best. They would have to select what applications they would need. Finally, a person would have to determine which brand to buy out of the various types. With such a broad array of options, it is no wonder that a person would have such a hard time choosing a computer. When choosing a type of system, a person must first think about whether or not they would like a computer that they can take on the go or if they want one that is stationary. Netbooks are compact notebooks with small screens (10 – 12 inches), and components that are more about saving battery life than delivering raw power. Therefore, they do have a slow CPU, a RAM of usually 1-2 GB, no DVD drive, and a low amount of hard drive space. However, they are great for those who only need only basic web browsing, emailing, and other associated tasks. Their small size makes the netbook extremely portable; as most are only around 1-1.5kg), their battery life is usually very good and lasts......

...Choosing Your Battles Josh FOSTER 9/12/2015 Choosing Your Battles Josh FOSTER 9/12/2015 How would you ensure sufficient discussion of contentious issues in a work group? How can managers bring unspoken conflicts into the open without making them worse? Conflict is a word with no shortage of definitions but common to most of those definitions is the idea that conflict is a perception (Robbins and Judge 2015, p.400). Conflict is most generally a process that begins when one party perceives that another party has negatively affected, or is about to negatively affect, something the first party cares about (Robbins and Judge 2015, p.401). The conflicts people experience in organizations are numerous with examples of such conflicts being; incompatibility of goals, differences over interpretations of facts, and disagreements based on behavioral expectations (Robbins and Judge 2015, p.401). The role of conflicts in groups and organizations is hotly debated and generally comes down to two different views. The traditional view of conflict which holds the idea that all conflict is harmful and must be avoided due to the conflict stemming from a malfunction within the group or organization (Robbins and Judge 2015, p.401). The over view point; the interactionist view of conflict, holds the belief that conflict is a positive and absolute necessity for a group to perform effectively based on the idea that a harmonious, peaceful, tranquil, and cooperative group is prone to......
