Even if you are doing full backups, Windows Server Backup provides some great space efficiencies on the target disks. For instance, you might perform multiple full backups of the same volume. Since Windows Server Backup uses Volume Shadow Copy Service snapshots on the target disks where it stores the backup images, the snapshots will only store the blocks that have changed. This substantially reduces the space used by multiple full backups. This eliminates the need to perform multiple restore operations to recover an incremental backup. Even though the snapshot only stores the deltas for each backup, Volume Shadow Copy Service makes each backup appear…...

Introduction:- Fred Maiorino was from one of the ‘Star Members’ of sale representatives of Schering-Plough – a pharmaceutical company. As a 28 years old college graduate, Fred Maiorino joined the Schering-Plough on March 26, 1956. Fred’s performance was outstanding and he always tried to give his best for his company.

Despite of such an excellent working profile, Fred Maiorino faced many problems towards the end of his career. Due to unfair management practices and change in working environment Fred was fired from the organization. In my opinion, the management was partial and mismanaged in Fred’s case.

FORTUNE -- When Fred Smith founded FedEx in 1971, he had just returned from the Vietnam War, where he had served as a Marine platoon leader and then a pilot, and he was casting around for something to do. As legend has it, a paper he had written at Yale -- he doesn't remember the grade but is pretty sure it wasn't a good one -- laid out the idea for a hub-and-spoke system for delivering time-sensitive items like computer parts. He borrowed money from his sisters, leased some jets, and started his service. Today FedEx (No. 70 on the Fortune 500), with headquarters in Memphis, has 255,000 employees, 688 planes, and more than 90,000 vehicles that operate in some 220 countries and regions. Here's the world according to Fred Smith. Edited excerpts: Q: In 2000 you started morphing from your traditional air express delivery business into ground and into freight. What was the thinking behind that strategy shift? A: Well, in 2000 we were probably competing in a $50 billion annual [sales] market space. Today we're directly competing in about a $350 billion to $400 billion marketplace. Going into ground and......

How to Motivate Fred Maiorino

...How to Motivate Fred Maiorino Fred Maiorino was employed by Schering-Plough for 35 years and on July 19, 1991 he was terminated. Fred was terminated because the lack of motivation he has once Jim Reed was hired. The factors that inhibit Jim Reed from motivated Fred Maiorino are lack of leadership, lack of goals, and lack of an effective employee performance review. Leadership Jim Reed fails to motivate Fred because of the unsuccessful role as leader. A successful leader has the ability to manage and supervise the performances of their employees. (Kacmar, Carlson, Harris 2013). These authors describe several leadership styles but the most effective in motivating employees is transformational leadership style. The transformational leadership style inspires employees by establishing an atmosphere that is motivating and invigorating (Kacmar, Carlson, Harris 2013). Motivating employees initiate them to believe in organizations ambitions. The transformation leadership technique encourages and motivates employees to be mindful of the significance of their role within the company. The authors explain a transformation leader that stimulates and motivates employees has the ability to achieve astonishing outcomes and improve their leadership capability. They also assist in developing and strengthening employees. They are effective in overcoming defiance among the employees by instilling passion, strength and cooperation between employees and establishing a set of standards......

...Alfred North Whitehead’s statement “What is morality in any given time and place? It is what the majority then and there happen to like, and immorality is what they dislike” (Solomon & Higgins, 2009, p.273). As for business, it can have ethical standards, even though businesses are not moral agents. This statement is true because to work well, any business has to incorporate an element of morality. Morality in business is evident when a company provides equal opportunities for all employees. As a result, morals in a business setting act as a guide for employees and managers to work conscientiously.  The value of ethical standards in business is that it provides employment opportunities for potential personnel without putting into consideration such aspects as sex, race, sexual orientation, religion, age, nationality, and color. If business adopts the above ethical standards, it concurs with Whitehead’s statement of morality. The reason is that people will like this business and associate it with terms of work and consumer relations. In my opinion, the profit alone cannot be the bottom line of business, even though it is essential for any commerce to make a profit to prove that it is operating in the right direction. To be successful, business has to balance its goals and client service as vital aspects that contribute to a good return. The most significant goal of business is to make money, but there are other less tangible goals that are intrinsic. For instance, when......

Fred Estaire's "Day and Night"

...Fred Astaire is one of the great jazz artists of the twentieth century, he is best known for his brilliant dancing in the movie musicals of the 1930s. Fred Astaire introduced “Night and Day” on stage, and his recording of the song was a #1 hit. He performed it again in the 1934 film version of the show, renamed The Gay Divorcee, and became his signature pieces. The construction of “Night and Day” is unusual for a hit song of 1930s. Most popular tunes then featured 32-bar choruses, divided into 8-bar section, unusually with an A AABA musical structure, the B section representing the bridge. The vocal verse is also unusual in that most of the melody consists of single note with inconclusive and unusual harmonies underneath. Repeated notes in the verse is an indication of Astaire’s obsessions Night and Day; You are the one; Only you, beneath the moon, and under the sun The melody is just the same, one note either played or held for two and one-half measures. All the repeated notes flatten the melody, which transfers the emphasis to the harmonies and Latin beat. Instrumentation: piano, bass, drums and guitar Performance style: Rhythm: The tune begins with a pedal (repeated) dominant with major seventh chord on flattened sixth of the key, which then resolves into dominant seventh in the next bar. Harmony: Jazz is genre of music with an emphasis on improvisation, and swung syncopated rhythms. It often utilizes elements of the blues, and often uses standard show......

How to Motivate Fred Moreno

...How to Motivate Fred Maiorino Fred Maiorino was a successful sales manager for Schering-Plough for over 31 years before Jim Reed was appointed general sales manager over the South Jersey sales district. Upon Jim Reed’s arrival he implemented several changes to try to increase sales and motivate staff. Jim Reed was unsuccessful at motivating Fred. Fred Maiorino was later terminated after countless unsuccessful attempts were made to motivate him. After analyzing the situation Jim Reed lacked the management skills needed to motivate Fred a successful employee of over 31 years. Jim Reed’s unsuccessful leadership attempt and a failed appraisal system were factors in the demise of Fred Maiorino. Jim Reed’s leadership can be described as directive leadership which is typically used with new employees according to Dubinsky, Yammarino, Jolson and Spanger (1995). Jim felt the need to micro-manage Fred as he attempted to tell Fred how to accomplish his goals and increase his sales. The appraisal system was a failed attempt in motivating Fred. Fred was accustomed to excelling at a certain level in which he failed to do under Jim Reed. When one does not excel or meet certain expectations with an appraisal system he or she will not be awarded merit raises or bonuses. This can be and was demeaning for Fred. In an appraisal system an employee is rated and given feedback on his or her deficits. The feedback should be constructive criticism that should help the employee improve......

...[pic] Fred W. Riggs: Contributions to the Study of Comparative Public Administration Howard E. McCurdy, American University [pic] In 1962, the Ford Foundation presented the Comparative administration Group (CAG), a special division of the American Society for public Administration, with one-half million dollars to study methods for improving public administration in developing countries. Public administration had passed recently through a period of widespread optimism about the power of administrative reform. Many practitioner-scholars believed that administration could be improved through the implementation of correct principles. Scarcely 25 years earlier Luther Gulick had suggested that experts were on the verge of discovering principles of administration as immutable as the laws of physics and chemistry. Scholars had rediscovered Woodrow Wilson's dictum that good administrative practices did not depend upon the type of regimen which they were practiced. The United States had achieved great success in reconstructing the economies of Europe and Asia through instruments such as the Marshall Plan. President John F. Kennedy had established the Peace Corps as a means of bringing "trained manpower" to less developed lands. With these trends to inspire them, scholars both prominent and apprentice traveled to foreign countries to share their knowledge about public administration. Many arrived in countries newly emerging from the grip of colonialism and struggling to......

Motivating Fred Maiorino

...Critical Issues On July 15th, 1991 the 63 year-old Fred Maiorino lost his job at the major pharmaceutical company, Schering-Plough. It was an ignominious end to an otherwise storied career of 35 years, and the culmination of an over two year struggle between Fred and his district manager, Jim Reed. In the legal battles that followed, Fred claimed that his termination was motivated by age discrimination on the part of his former employer, and eventually won a landmark victory of $8.44 million dollars, New Jersey’s largest ever age-discrimination award. The purpose of this paper is not pass judgment on Schering-Plough for its termination of Fred Maiorino, or whether their actions were right or wrong. We deal in the facts, not the morality of the situation – that is, an aging worker has a real or imagined failure to perform, in doing so he is eventually terminated from his job and prematurely ends a long and otherwise distinguished career. The focus of this paper is instead on the management failure that occurred – the lack of success in motivating Fred, the actions taken that led to a loss of confidence both in his employer, and Fred’s employer’s confidence in him, and more. All of these factors accumulated into the eventual loss of a distinguished and well-known employee in an industry that relies heavily on the interpersonal relationship and trust between a doctor and his pharmaceutical rep. Once Jim Reed determined that Fred wasn’t performing to his expectations, Reed......

The Motivation of Fred Maiorino

...In July of 1991, Fred Maiorino lost his job as a sales representative for Schering-Plough after several years as a top salesperson. After a lengthy court case and trial, Fred won a lawsuit in the state of New Jersey for age discrimination and was awarded $8.44 million in 1994. Whether or not Fred’s age was the reason Maiorino was actually a factor is beyond the scope of this paper or the information on hand. The jury that sat for the trial certainly has more details and first-hand accounts of the issues; the jury decided in favor of Maiorino and, with a little faith in our justice system, I will accept their decision. After a review related to motivation, I discuss the actions Schering-Plough took to motivate Fred and the way feedback and age affect job satisfaction and job performance. Motivation Methods of motivating employees is much discussed in management journals. From Herzberg’s KITA (kick-in-the-ass) method (2003) to need- based motivation to reinforcement theory, this issue has raised many questions about what kind of motivation works for companies. In my research, I found that one of the most important things for managers to keep in mind when trying to motivate an employee is that every employee is different and will react differently to the various techniques available (Duening & Ivancevich, 2006; Kolstrup, 2012; Milbourne & Francis, 1980; Deal, Stawiski, Graves, Gentry, Weber & Ruderman, 2013). A lack of absenteeism, putting forth best effort,......

How to Motivate Fred Maiorino

...Fred Maiorino had been a successful sales manager for Schering-Plough Corporation for thirty-one years before Jim Reed was named general sales manager over the South Jersey sales district that included Fred’s sales territory. Afterwards, Reed implemented several changes to try to boost sales including a new performance appraisal system and a hands-on coaching style to motivate his sales staff. The problem arose with Reed’s inability to motivate Fred (Buller & Schuler, 2003). In this case study, we will compare and contrast both the ineffectiveness of Jim Reed’s methods, as well as more favorable methods he could have used to influence a more positive outcome. The major issue is this case is Reed’s inability to motivate Fred, which inevitably led to the dismal of a long-time loyal employee. The major issues associated with this motivation problem include Reed’s unsuccessful leadership attempt, the de-motivating factors of the appraisal system, and the violation of the psychological contract. One major issue is Reed’s unsuccessful attempt at leading Fred. One could describes Reed’s leadership style as a directive leadership behavior of the path-goal theory that one typically uses with a new employee or a transactional leadership style that is used by many sales persons. Sales managers generally employ transactional leadership behavior which can “induce adequate attitudinal and behavioral responses in employees, transformational leadership has found to engender......

Fred Furniture Case

...Solution to Case: Fred’s Furniture, Ltd. PROBLEM: Fred Fox needs to come up with a method of protecting his firm against exchange rate risk, or else he may end up reducing his profits or even losing money on his foreign-currency transactions. He specifically needs immediate hedges for an account receivable in French francs and for an account payable in German marks. Note that Fred is British and he works in British pounds, not dollars. METHODOLOGY: Fred can compare various financial market instruments that are available for hedging the exchange rate risk in the two transactions. In addition, he can consider broader methods for dealing with exchange rate risk. ANALYSIS: Let us examine each transaction separately. The sale of furniture to Jean Marnier will result in a cash inflow of 2 million French francs in 6 months. Given the financial information quoted by Barclays Bank, Fred can use a money market hedge, a forward contract, or an option hedge to assure a maximum return on the sale. The forward market hedge involves contracting with Barclays Bank to sell francs and buy pounds in 6 months. If Fred does this today (August 1996), he will receive: FF 2 million x (1 pound/FF 8.76) = 228,311 pounds in 6 months. The present value of these funds can be calculated by discounting the value at Fred’s cost of borrowing in pounds: 228,311 pounds / (1.04625) 218,218 pounds today The discount factor is 1 plus Fred’s cost of borrowing for 6 months, i.e., 0.0925/2 =...
