Hi, my name is Bobby Fieseler I’m a reporter writing a book about Naperville, IL, and I’d really like to get in touch with the student from Indiana State who wrote and posted this story: Sundown Town, Course: POLI SCI 107, Winter 2008. The author writes about meeting a person who once lived in Naperville and experienced the cruelty of its sundown ordinance. This ordinance is now considered a myth in Naperville. There’s some evidence to suggest that the city destroyed all documentation and finding a person who lived through it, from the a historical perspective, is crucial. As such, I’d love to touch base with this author and learn about her source for this essay. I’m available here, via email or cell phone 773-329-5053.All Best,Bobby
You will prepare and submit a term paper on How Does SAN Implement Continuous Improvement and Carry the True Essence of Management. Your paper should be a minimum of 2000 words in length. The philosophy behind work at SAN is that when individual workers are allowed to work at their own pace and given the responsibility as part of the team, they become well motivated and work for the team and the company for which they work. The motivation is that each works for improvement and advancement of the organization. A member becomes like a part-owner of the business. The cluster to which a worker belongs competes with other clusters when it comes to skill, but they are all working for one organization. Cluster methods provide improvement not only as workers but as developed individuals. Each cluster works like an independent body but each member is multi-skilled that allows the cluster members to be flexible.The hierarchy of ordinary Western and American corporations is vertical with top echelon doing the commands and policies. In this case study, there are only four levels in the hierarchy, which means this multinational organization is trying to be modern and innovative, distinguishing itself from too much supervision and corporate politics. SAN is multi-cultural with Swedish and French cluster managers and respective teams working with precise teamwork. thats why they are effective and very motivated.Official data from the Department of Trade and Industry in the United Kingdom, which forms part of the Workplace Employment Relations Survey 1998 reports that 65 percent of workplaces have the majority of their employees working in teams. According to one estimate in 2000, 80 percent of all Fortune 2000 companies had over half of their employees working in teams (Flores and Gray, 2000, cited in Thrift, 2001, p. 420, cited in Knights and Willmott, 2007, p. 118). If the organization is to perform, it must be organized as a team (Drucker, 1992, cited in Knights and Willmott, 2007, p.

Assignment Task – Report You are a consultant who has been hired to advise the manager of an international HRM function. You find out that the firm has been spending too much money assigning expatriates to manage its foreign operations, who then return early with the assignment incomplete. Host country nationals working for the foreign subsidiaries are disgruntled because their managers are foreigners and do things differently. Neither the foreign expatriate managers or the staff can work well together and as a result, feelings are running high and productivity is low.

Compose a 500 words assignment on a letter of intent for dental school. Needs to be plagiarism free! ? PERSONAL STATEMENTI, had hailed from a family wherein my mother had a degree in oriental medicine after working as a nurse for a while, my sister had graduated from a medical school and was working in Korea. I was a biology majors at college, came to the U.S in the year 2000. Medicine had always been my career choice. The seven semesters I worked in the UG biomedical engineering research lab . my presidential UG research award and the poster presentation at the BMES conference always led me to believe the fact that medicine would be my choice of career. Being the secretary for the student club for a year gave me the opportunity to share, express and understand views of other people around me in respect to our career choices as well as personal lives. It had never occurred to me that I would ever think about dentistry as a career option. Two months at the dentists office in 2007 did give me an insight and also led me to another genre of thought. There was one more string that attached my aims and goals together. Treading away from this thought for a while I would also like to mention how my mother taught me why it is important for us as individuals to realize the difference between Aims and goals of life personally and professionally. I would want to mention it here, aims being what we want in the long run , the bigger picture .Goals on the other hand act as stepping stones towards achieving those aims. My aim always has always been to do something significant in medicine for a personal reason and conviction putting smiles on other peoples faces. Thats exactly what I realized treading onto dentistry was. Being in that office the dentist was doing the same. And now that Im actually thinking how this flux of career option will fulfill my personal and professional goals, it all falls into place. I feel the same zeal and commitment now for dentistry and I also feel and believe that I can do this and I will be able to put a big smile on other peoples faces after all.
Create a 29 pages page paper that discusses enterprise marketing: marks and spencer. The founder of the company Mr. Michael Marks started it as a single market stall in Leeds in1884, with the main objective of tailor made products to be sold at moderate price. This was later joined by Thomas Spencer in 1894, and the company started acquiring more outlets and selling only British Made products under the brand name St. Michaels. This was one of the many reasons of its success in the UK, as the products were solely British made, and the business increased with many British manufacturers.According to the Annual report, M&S, over 21 million people visit Marks & Spencer’s each week for their shopping, because of its quality and value for money. From 1974, M&S started its international expansion in Europe and Ireland as discussed by Pellegrini, L. (1994) and today it has a remarkable presence in 39 territories across the globe.This iconic retailer pitched its success in the year 1998, when it crossed the 1 billion mark, which was highest ever that could be achieved by any retail chain in the UK. But this success story came to sudden downfall and after two years, this empire was in very difficult situation (Goodman 2000. Bevan 2001. Mellahi et al. 2002).The many reasons behind this slump were increased competition by other retailers, who outsourced their products, the increased cost of production by the British manufacturers increased the cost of production and thus decrease the sale affecting the profit margin.Another important factor contributing to a low sale was the policy of non acceptance of credit cards. The denial of this universal phenomenon lured the younger and mobile client base to shift to the competing retailers, for the sake of ease. Also its shift from high street fashion to low end products led to the image loss of its quality. The downhill continued for years and the profits dropped from a billion pounds to 145 million by 2001 (Mellahi 2002).To reform the image loss and slack sales, there were some changes in strategies like:The company started its online shopping and also the acceptance of credit cards by 2001. According to Jess Cartner, fashion editor, The Guardian, with the introduction of the new range classical clothing for women: Women’s Institute Chic in the same year, M&S regained its position of being the best loved store of Britain. It also re shifted its focus to the core clientele of fashion conscious and stylish women and did not compete with the retailers in low priced catwalk copies like the Top Shop & Hennes.
