My company is a liquor, wine, and a beer distributor. My job, as a sales representative is to sell all the programs possible and sell as many cases as I can. All the managers, category managers, and chain managers help me in every possible way to accomplish my goals. Every month, I am given a quota number to hit and my manager always follows up on that. So, everything is related to the sales numbers.
After I talked to 5 colleagues, I found out that the main stressor comes from the wineries in California. Wineries provide us with the best deals and programs they can and we are supposed to implement on it. If our sales numbers are not up from last year or consistent, we are in the danger of losing that brand and they might go with our competitors. Anytime in the year, the winery can come up with some very special deals for a limited time and we have to make sure we sell it. Most of the times, the managers said that they are not given enough notice and it gets hard to get those programs together and get an urgent meeting scheduled with the sales team. It’s like that you are supposed to leave everything else, and just get on to that job. It was felt amongst everyone that if there is proper planning in place and enough notice is given, we could do a much better job in selling all the program. One of the colleagues felt that certain people could ease the stress by not over reacting too quickly to a situation. They need to think about what they are going to say rather than taking snap decisions.
Communication was the other source of stressor. All my colleagues argued back and forth that people within the company don’t communicate well enough and when the goals are not met, they are pissed at each other. They also agreed that they need to email each other more often, in order to keep everyone on the same page with the deal structures and programs. The…...

...and Sejanus as possible but without upsetting him because he’?s given him the highest honour: a joint consulship with the Emperor. Very elegant, I would say.’? There was a general murmur of agreement, as much for Antonia’?s reasoning as for Tiberius’? handling of the problem. ‘?If I am right, then I believe that Tiberius will be very susceptible to what I have for him. With solid proof that Sejanus is conspiring against him he will be forced to act, and with the knowledge that elements within the Guard are loyal to Macro, he’?ll feel free to act. ‘?So, now that I’?ve put a stop to my son Claudius’? ridiculous intriguing with Sejanus and decided not to sacrifice him, what is the solid proof?’? Antonia paused and looked around the gathering. Vespasian enjoyed this insight into high politics by someone he knew to be a master of the art, in fact, almost as much as he enjoyed the stolen glances he shared with Caenis. ‘?The priest?’? he ventured. ‘?Perhaps –? but he had been fed the story that Asinius was behind the financing of the Thracian revolt.’? ‘?Surely under torture he would be able to describe Sejanus’? freedman Hasdro well enough for Tiberius to believe that Asinius had nothing to do with it and it was, in all likelihood, a scheme of Sejanus’?.’? ‘?That is not conclusive; I asked for Rhoteces to be brought here when I was still compiling a range of evidence that, seen altogether, would be compelling.

...Kudler Foods acknowledges the importance their loyal customers bring to the overall success and longevity of their business. Kudler Foods would like to provide high value incentives to those loyal customers by integrating loyalty points and a Frequent Shopper Program for a more personal shopping experience. These incentives include things like first class tickets, rare and special foods from across the globe, and other high end gifts like jewelry and vacation packages (Dennis, 2013). With that in mind Kudler Foods systems analyst has identified three methods for gathering the correct requirements necessary to create a system for the Frequent Shopper Program. Research will be extensive and could be timely, however Kudler Foods plans to get a wide variety of input from the users, stakeholders, and management to guarantee success. On top of interviews and observations of users on the floor, Kudler Foods will also research inventory surplus and documents such as sets of legal forms, job descriptions to output examples like prototypes and layouts (Dennis, 2013). The first method discussed to gather all of this important information is more modern approach called prototyping. Followed up by another modern method of JAD (Joint Application Development) and will finish with more traditional measures. Prototyping is a key method that has a repetitive design and requires user feedback to build proper versions of the prototype. The information that is gathered by interview or......

...A Storm Gathering A Thursday night in Sudan Malik a Doctor educated from the university of Khartoum, is laying in his charpoy, feeling disembodied, as his bodily feelings has left him. We are told some of the things that has been happening throughout the week, mostly sad things such as the army accidentally killing nomads etc. Malik is unfortunately unable to pay his staff in cash, he has run out of medicine and is therefore unable to cure the people he promised to help and so it goes on.

I have item numbers on my pick list that vary by the amounts, for example ill have an item number and it’ll tell me to get 24 pieces, each box contains an amount of 3 pieces 4 pieces and 6 pieces in each box so I have to determine how many boxes I will have to pick on put on my pallet to complete the order. I also put away items that are received in trucks and place them in the correct location marked in 14 aisles labeled from AQ to AZ with 3 tears high labeled 1-3, the other side of the aisle is labeled BQ to BZ the 3 tears also. When I scan the item plate it’ll direct me to a destination to put the pallet in its proper location. Gathering the right information at my job is very critical, if I have an order that needs me to pick 3 orders of 36 pieces which is 108 pieces and I short the order by not gathering the right information and give our manufactures a short amount of pieces it will stop the assembly line which can cause the lines to stop and all productivity as at a standstill, now the supervisor is on me because the company is losing out on money.

Gathering Research in Criminal Justice

...Gathering Research in Criminal Justice Law enforcement officers and officials have a very strenuous job and even life style. Many things go into being a police officer and even more behind it. Research plays a crucial role in criminal justice in statistics, measuring crime rates, and on the job hazards or satisfaction. There are indeed many areas to look into but I believe that an officers job hazards would be the main focus in my research. The goal of researching law enforcement hazards would be to identify the risks of the job and in doing this, weighing those options with possible options to reduce risk or to just be aware of it and be mindful of what these risks can pertain. For example before you take a trip to the beach, researching the weather and knowing of any possible conditions that can occur before you travel would give you a better idea of the trip and if it's worth going or needing to be postponed. There are different types of interviews and the interview structure involved needs to be catered to the audience selected and the type of information needing to be gathered. Interviews from an actual police officer are an ideal method of gathering information needed concerning police job hazards. An officer would be able to give his or her first hand experience and knowledge. Interviews can be informal with the purpose being learning about the industry, company, people, skills required, cultural fit, and perhaps generating additional avenues of......

Information Gathering

...appropriate decisions. The other theory described in the article is the garbage can model. This model states that a decision maker makes a decision based upon whatever problems, options and solutions are available at some point in time. This can be described as a “garbage can” because a collection of choices are mixed and then chosen to match a problem to a solution. Per the article, “The choice situation becomes a “garbage can” in which problems and solutions are dumped” (Nutt, 606). According to the political model, decision makers base decisions on personal decisions rather than organizational issues. An irrational decision is rational to them because it achieves their ultimate goal. “ This prompts decision makers to seek information that bolsters their position by maintaining images of self, attitudes and the like. Decision makers create the impression that they have arrived at an unbiased inference by making their interpretation of trends and events seem equitable to all concerned” (Nutt, 606). In conclusion, the decision-making models do relate to the information described in the explanatory variable Table 1. As decision makers need to find the appropriate approach to solve problems and execute the best decision. #2. The approach that Nutt suggested in the article, in regards to gathering and extrapolating data involves a two-step process. The first step involves the process of decoding a performance gap, which is used to motivate action. The performance gap can be......

Gathering Research Data Paper

...Name CJA 334 Date Gathering Research Data Paper I am interested in gathering information and learning about officers and their jobs in the criminal justice field. Something specific that I am wondering about is, how many police officers are actually divorced or in the middle of one because of the career path that they have chosen. I have heard in the past, and read, that a higher percentage of divorced individuals were police officers. So, I am curious: do many police officers end up being divorced? And if so, are those divorces due to their particular career choice, or other reasons? The type of interview structure that I would use would be open-ended, leaving anyone I were to interview with the opportunity to feel free to answer as freely and openly as necessary. When interviewing, I would also be organized as far as what questions to ask and what sort of order the questions would be asked. I feel that this sort of structure would create a comfortable setting for the interviewees, as well as a setting that gave off a professional vibe. The questions would be thought out ahead of time, prior to any interview, and if I were to interview more than one person, I would ask the same questions to each individual. Some of the questions I may ask an interviewee would include questions that would allow me to receive information about his or her position in the force, what type of job duties they have, how long they have been a part of law enforcement, what sort of......

As an officer, one could face an active shooter, an emotionally disturbed person acting out, car accidents, and getting injured on the job. Extensive law enforcement training in many areas such as defensive tactics, range training, autism awareness, and public safety are examples of training to learn to deal with these situations. Despite these dangers and more, people still choose to be a police officer. Officers puts their lives and safety in harm’s way to protect their community. In the interest of learning more about the dangers of becoming a police officer, research will discover what the hazards through qualitative research. The indication of the type of interview structure as well as listing the questions that will be asked will illustrate how to achieve the goal of this research. In addition will be the advantage of using qualitative research. The goal of the research is to discover the many dangers of becoming a police officer. For a person to make the very important decision to become a police officer, they should know what he or she is possibly facing on the job.

However, none of what the attorneys do can be done without first having a firm grasp on each and every case set before them, the judge and the jury that will be making its judgment. But before they can make an informed decision there must have been a gathering of information, or data to support both sides of the case. The gathering of information or data is vital to the case and perhaps even more so to the individual/s that are on trial as their lives can and often do hang in the balance. No matter what profession one may have within the judicial system, researching information is something that at one time or another must be done.
