Unit Three Assignment – Report of Amazon.Com Scm System to Rf Executives

...Unit Three Assignment – Report of Amazon.Com SCM system to RF Executives Robert M. Bolden, Sr. IT500: Critical Concepts and Competencies for the IT Professional Dr. Dawn Giannoni Kaplan University In this report, we will discuss the idea of a possible implementation of a supply chain management (SCM) system for the Rainforest Company. In this report, we’ll identify what SCM is, the difference it makes between real-time processing versus analytical processing. Then we will identify the benefits it will bring to the Rainforest Company and how to get an edge in the competitive global market. In order to understand SCM, we must first describe what it actually is. Supply Chain Management (SCM) is a system that includes planning, executing and controlling all activities involved in raw material sourcing and procurement, converting raw materials to finished products, and warehousing and delivering finished products to customers. (Stair and Reynolds, 2012, p. 389). In other words, it is a system that bridges the gap between the manufacturer and the consumer by supplying goods and services without the intervention of a retailer such as a department or grocery store. In an attempt to put this in perspective, we looked into the activity of Amazon.Com and how their process works from the supplier to finally reaching the consumer. When looking into the supply chain structure and strategies of Amazon.com’s website, we discovered that their methodology is much similar to most......

Three Rewards and Three Challenges

...Is the career you chose a job or is it your work? I feel a job is just something you go to everyday, but work is something you do that will make a difference in someone's life. I'm hoping that it won't just make a difference in my life, but that of a child's life too. This is the reason I choose this career path in becoming a teacher. “What are three rewards and three challenges that you will face as a teacher?” I'll be talking about these challenges and rewards in the next few pages, on how I feel teaching make a major impact on not only my life, but hopefully the lives of thousands of children to come. At the end of the day I'm hoping to be that one teacher that my students will remember forever. What greater gift could I be given than to make a positive impact in a child's life and future? So, with that said let me begin with the rewards! The first one that comes to mind is the achievements of my students, in more detail student discoveries and the exciting new things they will learn through me teaching in my classroom. In doing so, I can show them how to untangle things they are struggling with, challenges they face, or problems that might occur; by showing them a different light. The smile that comes across a child’s face symbolizing that they understand or I've got it! Is one of the best feelings I feel, a teacher could have. This would show to me that I'm doing my job well and I helped a child cover new exciting things! In hopes that they would not be......

Three Shifts, Three Supervisors

...Week Two Case Studies Case 7.1 Three Shifts, Three Supervisors (Northouse) 1. Based on the principles of path-goal theory, describe why Art and Bob appear to be less effective than Carol? The path-goal theory focuses on motivating followers to achieve goals. It suggests that if followers believe there will be positive outcomes in their efforts, they will be highly motivated to do their work. Leaders, in this theory, use a style that compliments the follower’s needs in order to motivate them. Take the following situation as an example. I am newly hired as a sales manager and the morale in the department is extremely low. A few months ago the department’s profit in sales had been at the highest in decades. Multiple sales associates exceeded their quota, month after month, with no recognition such as bonuses or awards. The sales associates feel no reason to continue exceeding their quota because there are no positive outcomes from it. In the path-goal theory, I would create a recognition program as the incoming manager and motivate people to reach and exceed their goals. Moreover, I would guide them to understand their job and encourage that they are doing good work. Based on the principles of the path-goal theory, Carol appears to be more effective than Art and Bob. As a leader, she possesses behaviors that result in motivated followers. Carol shows directive leadership by ensuring that her group understands what needs to be done and how to do it. She has...

This makes a person’s busy schedule easier by not having to prepare dinner for themselves or family. Another example of a convenience good is booking a travel agent.

...Three Shifts, Three Supervisors Michelle Minchew LeTourneau University In partial fulfillment of the requirements for: MGMT 3713 – Management and Leadership Barry Fontaine October 11, 2015 Three Shifts, Three Supervisors An effective organization is one capable of implementing its strategy in a manner which satisfies the needs of its multiple stakeholders-customers, shareholders, and employees. A strategy is implemented effectively when people and groups in the organization work in a motivated, skilled, and coordinated manner on the appropriate tasks (Beer, 1994). This theory, or idea, coincides with the path-goal theory which is about how leaders motivate followers to accomplish designated goals (Northouse, 2016). Three Shifts, Three Supervisors case study 6.1 depicts the effectiveness of an organization through four different leadership styles. Brako is a small manufacturing company that entails three different shifts which hold three different job functions. The first shift, supervised by Art, is in charge of the production line and packaging. This job is noted as being monotonous with set rules and standards that require little to no independent decision making. According to path-goal theory, Arts leadership behavior should be constructed around the Supportive style; providing what is missing by nurturing followers when they are engaged in tasks that are repetitive and unchallenging (Northouse, 2016, p.121). The second shift, led by Bob, job scope......
