Question # (1): How might business research help the new president make the right decisions?

Answer:

Cooper & Schindler (2008) argues, “Although not all organizations use business

research to help make planning decisions, increasingly the successful ones does.” (Cooper & Schindler, 2008)
The authors further argue the fact that “The managers of tomorrow will need to know more

than any managers in history.” (Cooper & Schindler 2008) This statement along introduce

and sheds light into the present situation regarding the problem that the new president of the

old established company is facing and he must make the best possible decisions to proceed

further so that this company can go back to a profitable status. It is fair to say that all

decisions related to business related matters are about problems of some sort, and decision

processes are usually different from company to company. An important difficulty in a

decision dilemma is failure to act until one is too close to the decision point—when

sometimes information and options are greatly limited. Managers and/or organizations

usually work or respond in a “reactive” mode. Problems are “found” only after the issue

has begun to have a negative impact on the company, such as the case of the problem for the

new president. He stated in the question scenario, that he felt the company was operating

inefficiently.

Nevertheless, proactivity can be a great strength to the president in his decision

making tactics, but it requires a decision strategy intelligence process that is absent from

many managers as leaders within the organization.…...

...Learning Team A Mastering Teacher Leadership Case Study RES351 Chosen Cheng Aug 15 2013 Summary The Mastering Teacher Leadership case study is about a proposed change in licensure requirements for Ohio private and public school teachers. According the newly passed Ohio Department of Education Teacher Certification Standards, Educators are now required to have a Master’s Degree in order to renew their license. In order to gauge interest or reception to the changes, the Local Professional Development Committees sent surveys to new and existing educators who will be required to renew their license sometime in the future. Discussion Question 1 Building a research question hierarchy for this proposed change would require asking several in-depth questions such as: * Will the change result in increased technological literacy for both student and teachers? * Will the change build a framework and encourage educators to collaborate with other educators and community professionals? * Does having a Master’s Degree address classroom management issues of student social skills, moral education and discipline? * Would the change meet the diverse cognitive and social needs of students? Discussion Question 2 Upon evaluating the exploratory research design stage, the survey and the subsequent returns are deemed appropriate because the data was collected from the demographic that are relevant to the study.

...University of Phoenix Material Islam Worksheet When studying Islam, it is important to understand the essential elements of the faith, how they are practiced, and the distinctions among the three branches: Shiite Islam, Sunni Islam, and Sufism. Write a 1- to 2-paragraph response for each of the following directives and note where there are differences among the three branches of Islam. 1. Explain the meaning of the name, Islam. In Arabic, the word “Islam” means submission or surrender – however, it was derived from the root word “salam”. From this root word, you can also derive the words peace and safety. Many people feel that Islam implies some sort of enslavement to Allah, but others find it more helpful to define the word “Islam” as surrender. 2. Explain the basic concepts of Islam. There is only one God without limit, called Allah. Muhammad received the Quran as a copy of the eternal Quran which is inscribed in heaven. God created heavenly beings called angels to serve God and they are opposed by evil spirits. God sent his prophets to the earth at their appointed times, and the Prophet Muhammad was the last and greatest messenger of God. There will be a last day of world history called the Day of Judgment. Good and evil will be weighed in the balance. The wicked will be punished and the just will enjoy eternal life in Paradise. Everything in the universe has a predetermined course.

...Some teachers are helpful and understanding, others are overly demanding and mean. Some give you invaluable life lessons, and others do more harm than good. And yet, even the latter ones facilitate your learning process, albeit in their own convoluted way. Teachers are supposed to help us learn certain subjects, but they often do more than that. They give us an idea of what the real world would be like. Good teachers do that consciously, while bad teachers do that involuntarily. Teacher plays an important role in education of every student. There are many opinions about what are the qualities of a good teacher. Somebody think that it is knowledge of the subject, but there are those who claim that charisma is more important. Personally I think that personal qualities of the teacher are importantly than education. To begin with, teacher must to know how to draw students’ attention, and fun teachers can do it. Also, good teacher should be able to tell interesting stories about life that relate to the subject. It is difficult to understand information, if the teacher says without enthusiasm in a boring monotone voice. No doubt that nowadays teacher is not only a conductor of knowledge but a person who is responsible for the future of his or her students. That is why teacher must be reliable and responsible person. A good teacher is that teacher who is able to find an individual approach to each student it is very important try to find abilities in every child. In contrast...

... her she was doing well. Called operant conditioning (positive reinforcement), it helped shape the desired behavior. It includes trial and error, learning and repetition. As Skinner interpreted the behaviorist theory, the traditional teacher would have encouraged Zuri to learn and criticized her for not completing an assignment. The teacher would not give the student any consequences for improving her performance. Another student, a 56 year old Baptist minister was having problems passing his math G.E.D. test. He had been enrolled in two G.E.D. classes in the area prior to starting in my class. When he attended class he would be on his cell phone and fail to complete his homework. On one occasion he said, “Ms. Hamilton I had a church conference I had to attend.” I told him to turn his cell phone off while in class. I also informed him that he had an obligation to the church members in his congregation to complete his G.E.D. I asked the minister, how could he guide people if he could not guide himself? I used 1986 project mention in Women’s Ways of Knowing, “self-examination moving outside of the given and leaving academic context that had dictated standards and method for knowing” Belenky et al.

...Teacher that changed my life A teacher alone has the ability to change a student’s life. Agree or disagree.                 The school is not a video game which gives immediate gratification, and we cannot claim that students fall in love in each subject taught. After all, what a teacher teaches daily are simple tools like speaking a language, solve a math problem or write an essay that are unlikely by themselves to radically change the lives of students. We all, in our school career, remembered a hurtful words of teachers, with comments on our grades records for example or on the opposite hand a teacher who once believed in us, who knew how to restore our confidence. So a teacher has the ability to change a student lives with sometimes a happy end but it can also influenced the student in disastrous consequences. I never saw a reason to do the work. If my teacher didn’t care enough about me to ask why things weren’t getting done, then why should I do them? There was no real reason besides a grade. The motivation just wasn’t high enough to make me care. Then, I started taking a class with Mrs. Davis as my teacher. When I didn’t do the work, she asked why. She cared. She wanted to know me more than the other teachers seemed to. She wanted to see more than just another face in a desk every day. She wanted that with all her students. She still does. So, I explained things to her. She listened. She paid attention. She remembered and always asked for...

...Jocelyn Medrano Poli T/TH 2:00-3:15 pm September 23,2015 Loving Vs. Virginia The Loving vs. Virginia of 1969 is a case about how whites and blacks couldn’t have any relations with one another and it was against the Virginia law. The loving vs. Virginia took place in April 10th of 1967, when Richard Perry Loving And Lidred Jeter Loving felt that the state was violating the rights of couples marriage and their privacy. The Loving felt that it was also a violation of the 14th amendment of the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. Due to this case of different races not being able to get married has affect our generation and community today by allowing those different races to get married with no problems. Our generation today has different men and women of all races that want to be together, by our country prohibiting something as such, it only creates problematic situations for our society. Yes the year 1969 and today has a huge difference in how the laws have changed but if nobody of the past has spoke up to their rights, it makes us wonder how life would be today. Thanks to this case, it has truly helped with our cultural acceptance in many ways, one being that races of all kinds have the privilege to marry one another and two by creating more peace in all races. If today we had a law that prohibited different racial marriage, we wouldn’t have such inner peace with each other. The way that the loving vs. Virginia case contributed to the national government was...
