...BASEBALL’S INTERIOR Something happened to about 4 years ago to me. I was fourteen years old and my brain took a major cramp-full. My loving grandfather died at the age of 71. He was my mentor, idol, friend, and a loving grandpa, I will never forget him. He worked his ass off his entire life and didn’t take anything from anyone. He turned out to be one of the most successful people around. He started off as a janitor and later become a president of a die cast shop. When he died, it really got my brain to critical think and to do this day I always think things through and never just go with it. The contents of my brain are everything that I do on a daily basis. My direct personal experience with my grandpa made the ideals I live by exist exclusive. The game of life is a very difficult game to play. You never know what going to happen and you never live in the past. Always look toward you’re future goals to live a more successful life. I have made many mistakes in my life and by making mistakes I learn from them. My brain at first thinks it’s going to be a good idea at the time and in the end it just gets you in trouble. That’s why personal experience is a key to the knowledge of your brain. You have to really stick with your values and be truly loyal to them to get past hard life experience. Your brain can play tricks with you, but you have to remember those personal experiences and get by the hard times. There have been major changes that have occurred in recent years in...

The course of action will take place by putting out a new policy with steps and procedures on how to pass down information for a better communication value. In this case decisions will have to be made like possible demotion, overtime or firing a team member from that position.

...Consulting National Chains Dustin Riedemann Kaplan University IT402: IT Consulting Skills Prof:  Abdellah Tazi August 21, 2013 There are many different ways to look at whether or not the national chain should change their IT applications to help support the customer loyalty program. First the consultant needs to look at all the pros and cons of both changing the applications and the pros and cons of not changing the applications. First we can look at the pros of changing the IT applications to include a customer loyalty program. A good thing that may come out of changing the IT applications would be that the national chain would hope to keep the customers that the regional chain already has. This would help them to make more money and hopefully make the merger a success. This could also attract new customers that are looking to save money when shopping for their regular groceries. By promoting the customer loyalty program and telling potential customers that if they sign up for the program that they will be saving “x” amount on certain marked products, this will more than likely start to bring in more customers to the national chain because most people are always looking for a way to save money. This will also make the national chain more money because they will have more customers coming in and out of their doors, but they will still be making money off the products that they are selling, but they may not be making as much. A con to changing the IT applications to......

...Week 2 Assignment-Consulting Jennifer Avalos MAN 324 March 7, 2015 Dr. John Elmer Week 2 Assignment- Consulting “A consultant is who claims expertise in a particular arena, and advises on increased efficiency, decision making, and other aspects of management (Consultant, 2012).” Throughout my career path consulting has played an important role in my everyday work experience. Being in the healthcare field we face dramatic changes when it comes to customer conduct, market dynamic forces, and regulatory demands. As a Junior Executive for Scripps Hospitals one of my focuses is to ensure value care for patients and also reduce cost and increase revenues. Also, play the role of consultant with situations that the day might bring towards our hospital. One consulting incident that I recall from not too long ago was to develop a faster process of opening and renewing contracts with insurance companies and accelerate the process of payment for services. “Most typically, the provider and payor begin negotiating contract renewals nine months before the contract is up. Most contracts are one to three years in duration, so these negotiations happen quite frequently (Weiss, 2012).” It was currently taking very long for us to serve our contract payors and that made our customer service skills below average. Insurance companies doubted on whether to renew contracts with us due to this issue. To make matters worse, it also delayed payments which affected our finances. I was......

Third, we propose a strategic conceptual framework that is constructed of these five processes and examine the components of each process. The development of this framework is a response to a challenge by Reinartz, Krafft, and Hoyer (2004), who critiAdrian Payne is Professor of Services and Relationship Marketing and Director of the Centre for CRM (e-mail: a.payne@cranfield.ac.uk), and Pennie Frow is Visiting Fellow in Marketing (e-mail: p.frow@cranfield.ac. uk), Cranfield School of Management, Cranfield University.

This lack of a widely accepted and appropriate definition of CRM can contribute to the failure of a CRM project when an organization views CRM from a limited technology perspective or undertakes CRM on a fragmented basis. The definitions and descriptions of CRM that different authors and authorities use vary considerably, signifying a variety of CRM viewpoints. To identify alternative perspectives of CRM, we considered definitions and descriptions of CRM from a range of sources, which we summarize in the Appendix. We excluded......

...Consulting One of the first jobs I had was as an aide in a nursing home. The main issue I experienced there was lack of supplies for patient care and the high turnover of employees. At the beginning of each shift, there was a scramble to load the cart with clean linen and towels. It was basically a first come, first serve situation. There was never enough aides to properly take care of the patients. With each aide responsible for ten or more patients, many times patients would be confined to their beds waiting to be fed, changed, or bathed. This was not acceptable. The management was focused on profits, not care. They did not listen to the concerns of the employees that were directly involved with patient care, yet set high expectations for employee productivity. Reengineering, defined as “the fundament rethinking and radical design of business process to achieve dramatic improvements in critical, contemporary measures of performance such as cost, quality, service, and speed” (Chase, 2006). Before making any recommendation on reengineering the business, I would first evaluate the business and determine how the business operates. Looking at all aspects of the business will allow me to see the decision making process management utilizes (Business Consulting Through Development and Optimization, 2011), how they deal with problems, treat their employees and the income gained or loss by not having the proper aide to patient ratios. My InnerView, Inc., is a company that......

This FAQ has been compiled from answers provided by a panel of Consultant BITSians, to consulting relating questions posed by this group. ▪ FAQ Structure The questions have been classified into the following sections: B Schools and Academic background (pre and during MBA) Professional work experience (pre MBA) and expectations Post MBA Consulting experience Interpersonal Skills and Networking FAQ B SCHOOLS AND ACADEMIC BACKGROUND (PRE AND DURING MBA) Q1. When evaluating MBA programs, what are the key characteristics to consider for an aspiring consultant? In other words, what are the different parameters based on which, one can shortlist & differentiate universities for a consulting major. While Consulting companies recruit heavily from a core set of schools (typically 5 or 6 top schools), almost all Consulting firms recruit from most of the top 10 or top 15 schools. When evaluating an MBA program, it is important to consider the location, interest in living there and how good the program is. One can gather this information by networking with alumni and current students. While targeting a school with consulting in mind is one way to go, it is essential to keep an open mind. Most students figure out their interests and career paths while at school and not before.......

Dugger Consulting An operation consulting is the process that assists various categories in business to evaluate the present status of internal methods and strategies, and improve the comprehensive operation of the company (What is Operations Consulting?). A problem that I have experienced with the consulting process at a current or past employer will be explained. The longest on and off job that I have held while in school has to be working as a sales associate at Macy’s. Working in the retail field definitely allows a person to know so much more about how a business is ran and what all goes into all the sales and profits. With this particular employer there were a few problems in the process that I have seen not personally dealt with. As an associates we were really never told how we were doing in personal sales and how we were performing in our job; the guideline for Macy’s was that managers are supposed to speak with each associate and tell them how they are doing and what improvements need to be made and what they were doing great at each quarter, but we barely were shown any information of that. I worked there a consecutive year and was not shown once at all. What would I want my client to be aware of that would help significantly in re-engineering the process? Re-engineering is defined as the systematic starting completely fresh and recreating the......

Decorative Interiors

...1 Outline of the Report Decorative Interiors(DI) is the company established by Rocco Rapini in 1988, which specialized in sales and services of upholstery, bedding, window coverings, wallpaper, carpets and other home décor items. From 1992-2002, DI sales were grown resulting in profits. At the same time, work on Rocco Rapini and his wife was also increased. They tried to hire decorators but resulted in negative experiences. But finally they appointed Mary Morris as commission-based sales person. She increased the company’s sales to record values. But she behaves as a dominating person to Rocco Rapini and used company’s connections for her benefit. Rocco Rapini dismissed her in august, 2005. Since 18 months, sales were not improved and at the same time, interior design business became more competitive. With the stress of business, Rapini affected with heart attack in July 8, 2006 and doctors advised him to change his life style. Problem statement is Rapini is thinking about whether to choose best alternative ways available to continue his business or to consider doctor’s advice. Available options were selling the business, convert to home-based operation, move the business to cottage country and hire professional help. Based on the criteria of health, future financial stability for his family, future growth of business, my recommendation is to hire the professional which satisfies all the criteria. 2 TABLE OF CONTENTS: Situation Analysis………………………………………………………………...
