Delegating Authority

...is expected and in what timeframe those expectations should be complete. Anne illustrates the carefulness in delegating the project of the new procedures manual by inserting a cautionary “as long as Bill knew the parameters and the expectations for the completion of the project” to Ricky (Robbins & Coulter, 2012, p. 283). As a result, Ricky has set up a meeting with Bill to review the information for the parameters and the expectations for the completion of the department’s new procedures manual. Ricky is preparing for the meeting thus this shows he is ensuring he provides Bill with all the tools to successful complete the task on his own within the time limit. The appropriate channels are used in this scenario for delegating authority to Bill to complete the project. Each party involved followed the proper chain of command. After corroborating with Anne that Bill has three years’ experience with the contract group, Anne grants Ricky permission to reassign the project to Bill. Ricky’s meeting will enable Bill to understand Anne’s expectations for the new procedure manual, his responsibility in the assignment, and timeframe of complete by the end of the month. As the delegated employee, Bill will organize the project including the development, engineering, operation, and release management. In some areas, Bill might ask for some assistance from his coworkers and may even need to delegate some tasks to those members. After Bill obtains some participation from the......

Authority

...Authority is Power – Crucible Essay Is authority power that is given to an individual? Or must that individual earn their respectful status with no faults? When does the power given begin to become too much for an individual to regulate? An individual with a lot of power over a certain group or person may misuse their authority in negative ways. Many figures of authority misuse their powerful influence over other individuals which can negatively impact the lives of others or even themselves. A number of people with authority tend to misuse their powerful influence over a group of individuals, as seen in the play The Crucible by Arthur Miller. Many characters with power try to maintain their respectable reputations but along the way end up dissipating the authority they have. Other characters misuse their positions of power over certain individuals for personal gain such as love and for wealth and land. Individuals with respectable authority tend to misuse their power in hopes of maintaining their idea of a perfect reputation. Reverend Parris is known as the town reverend, a title with power and high expectations. He has power over the town due to his title but he misuses the power he has over his slave from Barbados, Tituba. Once Parris discovered that Tituba was present in the woods with the girls dancing, he felt as though she were responsible. He used his power, as her boss, to threaten Tituba into giving information as he asks her “who? Who? Their names, their names”...

Obedience to Authority

...Malicious ideologies have enabled groups of people to inflict inhumane violence on other members of society through compliance to authority. Such historical events of massive genocides include the Holocaust; where Nazi soldiers killed six million innocent Jewish people based on their political and ethical reasoning. Troubled by situations of this nature, Stanley Milgram held a collection of experiments that his book “Obedience to Authority” outlines. Milgram tells us that “the aim of the study was to find when and how people defy authority in the face of clear moral imperatives” ( 4). Milgram found that there are social forces which allow populations to commit morally conflicting acts against other populations. The fundamental variable for this influence is ideology; which is defined in Webster’s dictionary as “a systematic body of concepts, especially about human life or culture”(“ideology”). Ideologies accompanied by social contagions, admit ordinary individuals to transgress in inhumane conformed evils. The obedient subjects of Milgram’s studies and the Nazi soldiers alike are not all necessarily sadistic psychopaths. Rather, they’re a result of ideological social conformity. It has been a commonly accepted idea that those who participated in the holocaust were all individually psychopaths, but conformity to a corrupt authority’s dogma influences ordinary people to behave malevolently. Between 1941- 1945, fifty-five thousand Nazi soldiers worked at death and work......

The Bible's Authority

...Name: Robert Stump Writing Style Used: MLA Course and Section Number: THEO 201-C04 The Bible’s Authority In life there are many authoritative figures that we must listen to, but the Bible’s authority over us is the ultimate authority. The way we live our daily lives should be based on what the Bible tells us that we can or cannot do. Why does the Bible have such authority over us? That power is established for the Bible by the claims of the Bible, which is that it, is the word of God. (Elwell, p154) It is true that man wrote the Bible itself, but God inspired the words that those men were writing. That is an important part of the Bible itself I believe because God chose to us man to write the Bible through inspiration. The idea of inspiration in the theological world is that a divine mind will act to communicate with other spirits. The Holy Spirit chooses to influence specific people, so that their writings will be trustworthy and also have authority. (Elwell, p. 160) The actual meaning of inspiration is used a little differently today. In the Bible though, the word inspiration is also meant as saying God “spirited” or breathed out. (Elwell, p. 160) In the Bible, more specifically the Old Testament, God inspired Moses to write the Ten Commandments. That is the kind of inspiration that the Bible is full of. Jesus himself states that the Old Testament is an infallible authority, which backs up that the Old Testament is inspired words from God. The idea of inerrancy......

Local Development

...Chapter Seventeen Local and Rural Development Egypt is considered one of the oldest countries in recognizing the local administration since the division of delta into two major parts; countryside and urban areas in the wake of the opening of Egypt in 641 AD. The early beginnings of the local sys-tem were known in Egypt through the French occupation, where Napoleon divided the country into 16 directorates. The first constitutional recognition in the Egyptian local system came in two articles 132 and 133 of the 1923 Constitution. This Constitution stipulates that all the councils would be chosen by elections. The Constitution also granted the councils specializations concerning the implementation of local general policy and required them to publish their budget and to open its doors to the public. Arab Republic of Egypt is, according to the 1971 Constitution, divided now into administrative units that enjoy nominal characteristics i.e. the 26 governorates, including (180) centres, (213) cities, (74) districts and (4632) villages, besides Luxor. The units of local administration undertake, in the light of the State general plan, establishing and managing all the public utilities. These units also undertake the approval to perform projects of reclamation in the framework of local units. The local and rural development is considered an important pillar of the comprehensive development of Egypt. It is the principal administration to achieve the developmental balance among......

Authority is the right given to a manager to achieve the objectives of the organization. It is a right to get the things done through others. It is a right to take decisions. It is a right to give orders to the subordinates and to get obedience from them. A manager cannot do his work without authority. A manager gets his authority from his position or post. He gets his authority from the higher authorities. The lower and middle-level managers get their authority from the top-level managers. The top-level managers get their authority from the shareholders. Authority is delegated from above but must be accepted from below i.e. by the subordinates. In other words, authority flows......

Authority

...Main article: Authority (sociology) Max Weber, in his sociological and philosophical work, identified and distinguished three types of legitimate domination (Herrschaft in German, which generally means 'domination' or 'rule'), that have sometimes been rendered in English translation as types of authority, because domination isn't seen as a political concept in the first place.[citation needed] Weber defined domination (authority) as the chance of commands being obeyed by a specifiable group of people. Legitimate authority is that which is recognized as legitimate and justified by both the ruler and the ruled. Weber divided legitimate authority into three types: * The first type discussed by Weber is Rational-legal authority. It is that form of authority which depends for its legitimacy on formal rules and established laws of the state, which are usually written down and are often very complex. The power of the rational legal authority is mentioned in the constitution. Modern societies depend on legal-rational authority. Government officials are the best example of this form of authority, which is prevalent all over the world. * The second type of authority is Traditional authority, which derives from long-established customs, habits and social structures. When power passes from one generation to another, then it is known as traditional authority. The right of hereditary monarchs to rule furnishes an obvious example. The Tudor dynasty in England and the ruling......

Obedience to Authority

...Running Head: POWER OF SITUATION AND OBEDIENCE TO AUTHORITY The Power of the Situation in Milgram's Obedience Experiments Ahsan Chishty Ohlone College POWER OF SITUATION AND OBEDIENCE TO AUTHORITY The Power of the Situation in Milgram's Obedience Experiments Stanley Milgram is a name universally known for the Yale professor who shocked the world with his experiments on obedience. In 1961, Milgram along with many other colleagues devised an experiment after receiving a grant from the National Science Foundation to conduct an experiment in response to the trial of Adolf Eichmann. Milgram wanted to know if Germans under the rule of authority figures did exactly what they were instructed to do by those of higher power than them due to the fact that many of the explanations for the Nazi atrocities was simply that Nazi soldiers were following orders. After placing an ad in the New Haven Register for a learning experiment on the study of memory. According to Thomas Blass (2009), offering participants $4.50 and a paid bus fare for an hour of their time seemed to be the biggest factor that attracted people to the ad but several of the participants also agreed to be a part of the study to learn something about themselves, expand their curiosity about psychology, or because they were fascinated by memory and hoped to understand it better through an experiment like Milgram's. The subjects were introduced to a man in a lab coat......

...that Janet had actual authority which means Hal one of the owners, intentionally conferred express and implied powers to the her to act for him. By Janet exercising actual authority, it is as if the Hal is acting, and Hal is bound by the Janet's acts and is liable for them. Janet was given the authority to act in Hals name when he gave her authority to order supplies. When Janet performs duties, such as ordering supplies, it is as if the Hal has done so. Another issue concerning whether Janet had the authority to sign the lease agreement also arises when trying to determine if the lease agreement is enforceable. Janet may have what is called apparent authority, which is when Hal either knowingly or even mistakenly, permits the agent or others to assume that Janet possesses authority to carry out certain actions when such authority does not, in fact, exist. Hal did not directly give Janet the authority but it was implied that Janet had the authority when Hal told the sales person to work out the details with Janet. By having the sales person work the details out with Janet is gives the sales person the impression that she has contractual authority. The scope of an Janet's authority, whether apparent or actual, is considered in determining an Hals liability for her actions Janet is not personally liable to Non Linear Pro for the lease agreement she had entered into as a representative for Quick Take Video as long as she acted within the scope of her authority.

Defendant Brian Kemp, Georgia Secretary of State and “chief elections official,” is responsible for ensuring Georgia’s compliance with the NVRA, including Section 7, and did not fulfilled his responsibilities for ensuring that Georgia provides the voter registration services mandated by the NVRA to its public assistance clients. Defendant Clyde L. Reese, III, Commissioner of DHS, the state agency responsible for administration of public assistance programs in Georgia, also had failed to ensure implementation of policies and procedures to make voter registration available through agency offices, as mandated by Section 7. To see numbers increase and make certain compliance of Section 7 in its agency centered voter registration, management can take several steps such as forming a NVRA Improvement Team with a Delegated Chair, selecting Local Coordinators, Sending Immediate Instruction to Agency/Office Personnel, and Training & Performance analyses of staff to name a few (2008, Demos).
