Communication and progress monitoring
Communication methods:
For better communication all the members have to be active and dedicated towards their project. Below are some communication methods that should be used in order to maintain a better communication among all the group members * Social networking sites
We will use different social networking sites like- Face book, Skype etceteras as a way of communication. We can chat, video chat, online meetings etc through these. * FB groups
Face book is a social networking site but yet it is one of the major ways to communicate. We have already created a FB group named “MGT 314”. There, we post our ideas, suggestions even necessary documents. It helps us updated. * Face to Face meeting
Undeniably the most efficient way of communication. Though there could be obstacles like- time adjustment, schedule problem etc but if possible it can help us more than anything. We already done few meeting regarding this project and it helped us a lot.
Some other ways could be: * Text messaging * Email * call

Group network:
We have chosen all channel networks for our group as it will make all the group members communicate actively with each other. It will be a self managed team where each and every group members will participate in every activity and at the same time they will complete their individual task as well.
Below is a diagram to show how this network connects all the members to bring the best out of them:

Progress monitoring: * Brainstorm for ideas (online/face to face) * Help from Internet * Keep updating documents in FB groups * Use of project management tolls * Make sure all the members have all…...

Employee Monitoring

...Employee Monitoring Employee monitoring has been a topic of great debate for some time. Many employees feel that their rights have been infringed upon and as technology expands, employers have a lot more ways of monitoring their employees as well as a bigger responsibility to make sure employees are not leaking information electronically or just slacking off while they are at work. Employers now will begin monitoring an employee from the time they are screened for the job; social networking sites have made it a lot easier for an employer to look at the lives of the prospective employee to see if they feel that the person is a good fit for their company. Also many employers now will go and put monitoring software on their networks and computers so that they are able to see any information transmitted through their networks, such as e-mails, browsing history and chat sessions. Also an employer will take the time to monitor phone calls made from company phones as well as placing their employees on video surveillance. In order to sustain abiding by the law and working ethically, employers have to take many precautions when monitoring employees so that they do so legally. One method that most people are aware of are the terms and conditions that you usually either sign off on in an employee handbook to send into corporate or are part of the application process in some cases. These terms and conditions essentially say that you are aware that your employer may monitor you......

Surviving Progress

...Resources Progress is defined as a forward or onward movement towards a goal or destination. The film “Surviving Progress” explains the progress humanity as a whole has made and the progress we continue to make. Filmmakers Mathieu Roy and Harold Crooks show how much progress humans are making and how we have become into a progress trap with too much progress eventually leading to disaster and dead ends. No matter what humanity is always making progress in our civilization, economy, technology, and more; only problem, we’re making progress non-stop creating an eventual crash and destruction of Earth’s natural resources. Ronald White argues that humanity is in what he calls a “progress trap” which he explains “I came up with the term progress trap to define human behaviors that sort of seem to be good things, seem to be, to provide benefits in the short-term, but which ultimately lead to disaster, because they’re unsustainable.” Humanity as a whole has reached what is considered a “progress trap” many times already and is in the process of falling into deeper “progress traps” than ever with technology and our economics. In the past, as an example given by Ronald White, Hunting turned into a dead end when our ancestors were hunting to make their living. They went from killing one mammoth at a time and struggling to do so, to killing a whole heard of mammoths by running them over a cliff. This pushed them into a “progress trap”. These new hunting techniques had been great......

Progress

...Progress Walking through the school doors as a freshman on my first day of high school, I wasn’t thinking about who I would be walking out of those same doors four years later and a senior. I didn’t know what I was going to have to overcome. I wasn’t worried about college applications or SAT tests. I had no clue. The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyon demonstrates that knowledge is gained through travel. Christian is the central character of the book and the hero of the pilgrimage. Christian represents one aspect of the human experience: the search for religious truth. He is his faith (hence his name). Christian’s motivation, the search for salvation in the Celestial City, is comparable to the pilgrimage of high school. A pilgrimage depends in travel, and so a pilgrim, or high school student, must be prepared to go far and wide. High school is a pilgrimage, every student is a pilgrim united under a common goal: Graduation. The obstacles that are overcome in The Pilgrim’s Progress by the main character, Christian, correlate to the obstacles a student faces on her way to Graduation. In The Pilgrim’s Progress, the pilgrims face a series of obstacles and thwarters on their way to the Celestial City. They have to overcome their obstacles one by one. For me, achieving the grades that I needed to be successful in high school was not an easy thing for me to do. Over the course of my high school career I struggled to maintain a grade point average (GPA) that I thought would......

Kaizen - the Philosophy of Continual Progress

...Kaizen The philosophy of continual progress By – XXXX Course - Quality Assurance Instructor – XXXX Due – Nov 30 Kaizen essay Introduction to Kaizen The word kaizen is the combination of two Japanese words. The word ‘Kai’ meaning ‘to do’ or ‘change’ and the word ‘Zen’ meaning ‘well’ This way of thinking is not only used in the field of manufacturing, engineering and business management but also in everyday life in Japan. This philosophy promotes gradual and continual progress and an increase in self-worth and total involvement in everything you do. The word Kaizen (To make better or continuous improvement) can easily be misspelled as Kaizan (To cook the books or alter or fake a document). Most professionals in the field could benefit with a careful study of the differences. Kaizen is a process that when applied daily eliminates overly hard work (Muri) and humanizes the workplace. The kaizen methodology basically involves making changes and monitoring the results, then adjusting. It also encourages employees to experiment on how to eliminate waste in the business process to increase productivity. Employees at all levels of an organization are expected to participate in ‘Kaizen’. From the CEO all the way down to the janitorial staff. The kaizen philosophy can be implemented by the individual but can also be applied as a group system. At Toyota, kaizen is generally implemented within workstations and is focused on improving the work environment and productivity...

Security Monitoring

...Security Monitoring In today’s business world an organization may consist of many different applications which require a certain level of risk assessment and security measures. Each application within the organization needs to be thoroughly reviewed in order to determine the associated risks and ways in which to protect against them. Another factor to be considered is that risk may vary between internal and external applications. There are many activities which can be incorporated into an organizations security plan which will help to mitigate possible risks and the loss that result from security breaches. It will be difficult for a company to achieve information security objectives without security event monitoring. Security event monitoring is derived from the general practice of monitoring activities that occur on a computer system. Security event monitoring involves recording information that represents activity and analyzing recorded information to identify and respond to questionable activities i.e.; possible security events Making Security Monitoring a Part of Your Best Security Practices. This first step would be to identify what exactly is considered questionable activity. While there is defiantly some level of activity which is considered acceptable the rules and boundaries must be clearly defined. An organization must take into consideration the applications to be used and the minimum level of security that can be used which will still...

Perez) In the paper “Using fault trees to determine the root cause of rotating equipment failures”, the author, Robert X Perez, explains through his own experience as a senior reliability engineer at Citgo Petroleum Corporation, and through examples of various events in different systems the importance of finding the root cause(s) of failures in rotating equipment. The author explains these “major failures causing significant undesired events are the result of a series of events, and compares it to the reaction of a domino line being tipped over by a single domino chip. And studying chain of event, or probable scenarios is at the heart of RFCA’s” (Perez) The author focuses on FTA (Fault tree analysis) as a tool to determine such root causes. And gives examples of cases where use of these tools could have OR have prevented multiple damages due to one component failure causing failure in surrounding components. RCFA – Root Cause Failure analysis “Root Cause Failure analysis is a structured process to identify any physical, human and latent causes of undesirable event(s).And how such a process can be used in achieving continuous plant reliability improvements by targeting mechanical and organizational deficiencies in a process facility” (Perez).

Electronic Monitoring

...The widespread use of electronic devices during the Information Age has led to the electronic monitoring of employees by employers. It has become necessary for employers to provide computers, email, and internet access to its employees to conduct business efficiently. This type of access has provided misguided employees with the opportunity to conduct personal business and illegal activities at work. In an effort to address these risks many employers have implemented electronic monitoring tools. Employee monitoring is generally considered to be any type of tracking method used to watch what an employee does while at work. Electronic monitoring is monitoring employees' e-mail, computer files, voice mail, telephone use, as well as the use of video and audio surveillance, computer network monitoring, and keystroke monitoring. According to a 2008 survey done by the American Management Association, sixty six percent of the respondents stated that they were engaged in the electronic monitoring of their employees. Many reasons exist for employers to electronically monitor their employees. The monitoring of employees can lead to results that are beneficial to the employer. One reason employers cite for monitoring employees is to keep employee productivity from decreasing. Internet access allows employees to surf the internet for business purposes but employers fear that they will use it unproductively by visiting travel websites, recipe sites, message boards, shopping......

Business pressures are ever-increasing and organizations are now required to become even more effective and efficient, execute better on business strategy, and do more with less to remain competitive. This puts focus on the work process and improving efficiency in how it is carried out.

Employee Monitoring

...When it comes to monitoring of employees at the workplace it is already very common and already established in many businesses. There are many employers that monitor employee arrival times. The majority of business that handle any kind of currency monitors the way that the currency is handled to ensure that it is being handled correctly and professionally. Most organizations monitor the accuracy and quality of employees work. Nevertheless, a surprisingly large number of organizations still do not effectively monitor the manner in which employees use their computers and that can be an extremely costly oversight. The misuse and abuse of computer equipment can have serious costs for an organization and should be monitored at all times. Lost productivity is one problem that occurs without employee monitoring. Personal surfing has become an enormous habit for many employees and an emerging problem for employers. Employees can shop, play games, chat, watch and share videos and surf the internet all during working hours without monitoring. The amount of time that is lost to cyber slacking varies immensely among organizations, but most studies put it in the region of 2.5 hours per employee, per day. Multiply that 2.5 hours by the number of employees and the average hourly pay rate in your organization, and you will have an approximate estimate of the cost of cyber slacking (Turner). The Social networking site, Facebook, was recently labeled a social not-working site after a study by......

Rbm Monitoring

...MANAGEMENT IN MONITORING DEFINATION OF TERMS Result Based Management (RBM) is a broad management strategy aimed at changing the way institutions operate, by improving performance, programmatic focus and delivery. It reflects the way an organization applies processes and resources to undertake interventions to achieve desired results. UNESCO (1997) Result Based Management (RBM) is an approach to project/programme management based on clearly defined results, and the methodologies and tools to measure and achieve them (International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, Geneva, 2011). Result Based Management (RBM) supports better performance and greater accountability by applying a clear, logical framework to plan, manage and measure an intervention with a focus on the result you want to achieve. By identifying in Advance the intended result of a project/programme and how we can measure their progress, Monitoring is the routine collection and analysis of information to track progress against set plans and check Compliance to established standards (International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, Geneva, 2011). The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) (2002a:27) defines monitoring as a continuous function that uses the systematic collection of data on specified indicators to provide management and the main stakeholders of an ongoing development intervention with indications of the extent of progress and......

Progress

...Progress I'm a work in progress; you could even say we all are works in progress. As there are different kinds and types of animals, there are also different kinds and types of us human beings. A lot of things have changed on our planet Earth since God created it, and we, the mankind, are for certain not an exclusion. Many are even of the opinion, that we are the beings who have changed the most, and to tell the truth, I would not disagree to it. In Denmark, we have gone from being hunters and gatherers to farmers, building up towards the modern society and then further on to our current post-modern society, where we, the new generation, now, with all the different options and possibilities we have, focus a lot more on developing ourselves as individuals based on what we like to do, instead of what is expected and needed of us to do. The outcome of this has been, that our point of view on working has changed a lot, because we have invented all this technology that can replace some of the work we need to get done, and which contemporary also has caused a great increase of unemployment. It's not that we do less work, no; we still work a lot, and we work hard, but now, it's on a more science-based area, where the goal is to develop technology more than it already is. The work we do is on a complete other level than the pre-historical hunters and gatherers and it does not consist of the same basis, meaning that we now mostly work for our own satisfaction and curiosity rather...

Security Monitoring

...Security Monitoring Russell McKay July 23, 2012 CMGT/442 William Glassen Security Monitoring Organizations in pursuit of success are challenged by taking risks. This challenge necessitates a call for risk assessment and defense through security processes. Evaluation of risks and assessment lends to defensive strategies producing a high level of security in relation to acceptable cost. Modern business endeavors of electronic commerce or e-commerce find a two front strategy between internal and external risk strategies. Security monitoring offers a measure of defense to both internal information technology and external risk from e-commerce applications. Event Monitoring Security as event monitoring inspects inbound and outbound network activity for suspicious patterns indicating an intrusion attempt. Common behaviors of users and processes create a baseline by documentation for determining normal activity. This baseline is able to provide a determination by monitoring between acceptable and unacceptable activities. Administrating to the detection system require sensitivity to techniques and methods of users for minimum levels of security that allow normal user functioning. Internal Information Technology Basic internal IT applications such as inventory, payroll, general ledger, and human resources are vulnerable to various risks. Risks include viruses, worms, identity theft, money and proprietary misappropriations. Internal controls as described by the Committee...
