1-Do you think only certain individuals are attracted to these types of jobs, or is it the characteristics of the job themselves that are satisfying ?
Their different jobs include long hours of working (more than the norm), and travel often difficult to have unable a family life. This is the case of Tony Kurtz .
Most of the people hope to have a job that allows them to do some activities after work, to have a life outside the company. It is difficult to accept the conditions of work of the four managers.
But few people accept to work like four managers. They accept because they like them work or working is a need for them. So these are the only individuals who would be attracted to those jobs with such terms.
Despite the extreme nature of the jobs that can’t satisfy lot of workers, despite the high compensation and pay, these four managers’ jobs would be appreciated by people who think that jobs and their constraints are challenges. They accept challenges.
Irene, John, Tony, and David show that they are motivate despite the conditions imposed by their work .they are satisfy by them work too. This satisfaction justifies their implication in the organization and also that they accept the conditions as a positive challenge. It is motivation and satisfaction that permits to work despite work pressure.

Body Art Across the Globe

...Body Art across the Globe In this paper I will be discussing the differences in body art and ornamentation within three different cultures across the world. Each culture has a different way of defining their body art, whether it is with body paints, scarification, body piercing, body shaping, or tattooing. Each culture has different reasons and different ways of celebrating life, death, and aging within their tribe or group, each with a specific rite or traditional way of going about it. The cultures I will be going into are the culture of the Paduang women of Thailand, African tradition of scarification and the Polynesian style tattooing practiced among Samoan and Hawaiian cultures. In a small village just within the Thailand border, there is a group of women known as the Paduang celebrate their culture by wearing what modern western society would consider being bondage rings. Our society calls it neck-stretching but in reality what they are doing is placing brass rings around their neck from early ages such as 5 years old which push the collar bone and shoulders down to make their neck elongated looking. The custom involves adding an extra ring to their next every two years or so (Padaung Woman, 2013). Neck rings appeal to the men in their tribe and men in their tribes prefer to only marry women with neck rings. These neck rings often show status among their peers, however, it is estimated that in the next few generations that the practice will die out as more mothers...

Globe Theatre

...Globe Theatre In Elizabethan England, plays were extremely important to culture. Many theaters were built to present plays. No theater around was more important than the Globe Theatre. The Globe Theatre was an important part of society. The history of the Globe Theatre is very rich. It was originally built in 1598 by Cuthbert Burbage, who was very involved in the acting scene in his time. In 1613 it was accidentally burned down by a canon in a show there. The next year it was reconstructed only to be destroyed by puritans, who believed plays were evil, 30 years later in 1647. In 1997 a working replica was opened. The Globe Theatre’s structure was unlike any other of its day. Its wood was taken from another theater because Cuthbert Burbage owned that but not the land. “He therefore had the theatre, a timber building, taken down and reassembled at a new site (Boyce 218). It was roughly cylindrical and three stories high. Each floor had seats that looked into open galleries. It held 2,000-3,000 people at a time. Shakespeare was a paramount figure not only in playwriting, but in the Globe Theatre as well. It was built specifically for the great acting troupe, Chamberlain’s Men, which Shakespeare was a part of. Some of Shakespeare’s most magnificent works of art were performed originally at the Globe Theatre. Shakespeare himself was also a part owner of the Globe Theatre. The Globe Theatre was a place where many different types of social classes...

Globe Study

...One of the biggest studies of effective leaderships in different cultures is the GLOBE study. The Global Leadership and Organizational Behavior Effectiveness Research Program is a network of 170 social scientists and scholars from 62 cultures throughout the world, working in a long-term effort to examine the relationships between culture, practices, and leadership. The goal of this study is to develop a theory to describe, understand, and predict the impact of cultural variables on leadership and organizational processes and the effectiveness of it all. A particular strength of the GLOBE study is the combination of qualitative and quantitative data. The book contains five sections: the introduction, literature review, research methodology, empirical findings, and the conclusion. In the introduction, GLOBE states that the cultures of the world are becoming more and more interconnected while the business world is becoming increasingly global. Thus, there is a greater need for effective international and cross-cultural communication, collaboration, and cooperation. GLOBE has developed an integrated and cross level theory of the relationship between cultural values, practices, leadership, and organizational and societal effectiveness. The literature review section provides evidence that culture influences many aspects of leadership, industry, and organization. It explains the understanding of interaction between cultural influences on organizational leadership and the impact...

Pldt and Globe Rivalry

...PLDT and Globe: Rivals in the Telecommunication Industry Case Analysis Outline I. Introduction II. Financial Review a. Analysis b. Ratios III. Summary and Conclusion I.Introduction The race in the telecommunication is still not over since Philippine Long Distance Company (PLDT) and Globe Telecom, the two largest telecommunication firms in the country both claimed to be number 1 in terms of postpaid segment. PLDT claimed to be dominant by number of subscribers while Globe by revenue per subscriber. The situation continues to prevail as these two giants are continuously negotiating to merge or to buy out other smaller telecom companies in the countries. In terms of revenue and market share in the prepaid market, PLDT is also dominating the sector. While Globe remains to have bigger profit in the postpaid market, PLDT consistently narrowed the revenue gap with Globe by surpassing the subscriber count of its competitor thru its acquisition of Digital Telecommunications Philippines Nonetheless, Globe’s stronghold is still the lucrative postpaid market in which the company is assured of service country and monthly bill. For both firms, postpaid market remains to be crucial for future growth since Philippine Economy is perceived to gain developments in the long run that further improve the buying capacity of the customers and so with postpaid market...

Scm Globe

...I. Introduction SCM Globe is a supply chain game designed to teach concepts in supply chain design, demand forecasting, resource allocation, and production planning by the use of illustrating how different supply chain designs produce different operating results and explore how to manage those results. The game is performed in a real-time setting that allows for helping to create a supply chain that meet customer demands for products with the lowest operating costs and lowest inventory levels. The simulation gives students an opportunity to design and manage the supply chain of stores that sell Crunch Candy and Just Born Candy. During the simulation experience, students create products, facilities, vehicles and routes while attempting to control delivery frequency and forecast demand. To manage the collaborative supply chain successfully, students must create a supply chain that is flexible enough to react quickly to fluctuating demand. This is accomplished by defining products according to the needs of facilities and creating vehicles to move products between these facilities i.e. road, rail, air or water. A simulation is conducted that provides data showing where the operation breaks, where products accumulate or runs out, what your operating cost are etc. The simulation is repeated over an eight week period allowing students an opportunity to refine their decision processes after learning from the feedback they receive as a result of attempting to have the...

Globe Theatre

...Shakespeare has written some of the most memorable plays in history. It was probably the most important structure in Shakespeare’s career. Throughout its history the Globe Theatre has hosted the very best of Shakespeare’s productions or works of art such as Hamlet, and the Twelfth Night were written to be performed on the stage of the Globe Theatre. The Globe Theatre was a theatre located in London, England. The Globe Theatre is commonly associated with William Shakespeare. The theatre was built in 1599 by the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, which happened to be William Shakespeare’s playing company (Linda Alchin). The land that the theatre was built on was owned by Thomas Brend and was later inherited by his son Nicholas Brend and then later on his grandson Sir Matthew Brend. On the 29th of June 1613 the theatre was destroyed by a fire during a performance of Henry the Eighth (Linda Alchin). The Globe Theatre was rebuilt in June of 1614 and was closed in 1642. There is a modern reconstruction of the Globe Theatre in London called Shakespeare’s Globe and it opened in 1997 (J.M Presley). The Lord Chamberlain’s Men were actors who were shareholders in the Globe Theatre. The Globe Theatre was divided into shares of ten percent each with two brothers, Richard and Cuthbert Burbage having a double share or twenty-five percent each (Linda Alchin). Originally there was supposed to be a seventh shareholder, William Kempe but he sold his share to the four minority...

... Eli Lilly made a strategic decision to create Humulin for a number of reasons including problems with animal insulin, increased insulin usage, and decreased red meat consumption. In addition, competition in the insulin market historically was based on 2 factors, purity and "time profile". (Christensen, 2004)  They may have overshot the market but I think it was the right decision. Although patients weren't looking for a new pure insulin and it took years for Humulin to gain traction it eventually accounted for 80% of ELC's insulin volume. Considering ELC had 85% of the North American insulin market this is a significant source of revenue for the company. (Christensen, 2004)  Had ELC been complacent with animal insulin they would have left the door open for a competitor (Novo) or an upstart to create this new insulin first and eventually take market share from ELC. They may have cannibalized their own market in animal insulin in the process but they continued to maintain market share. Novo- Nordisk eventually introduced its own human insulin and along with Hoeschst they controlled the market.  Since the cost of entry is so high due to clinical trials...

...End-of-term SCM Globe Summary paper Overview and learning objective: The personal experiences with simulation and modeling exercises are unique to an individual decision-maker. The goal of the Cincinnati Seasonings exercise is not the final outcome. Achievement is measured within the learning and accomplishments as a student evaluates options, selects an action plan, monitors results, and makes further adjustments. In a continuous improvement model, this approach is the "plan-do-check-act" cycle. During week 10 as the simulation draws to a close, the paper is an opportunity for each student to perform a personal assessment of what went well and the aspects that could be future improvement areas as that person approaches future logistics network challenges. Students will share their papers in a conference and peers will have an opportunity to compare their learning achievement with others. I. Introduction A. Overview of Cincinnati Seasonings - provide a narrative about the company and its business goals and objectives. This information is based upon the user manual. B.

...Abstract Since its inception in the early 1990s, the Global Leadership and Organizational Behavior Effectiveness (GLOBE) project has investigated the complex relationship between societal culture and organizational behavior. The focus of this paper is on leadership, specifically what we know and have learned from the GLOBE project so far. Among other findings, we demonstrate that national culture indirectly influences leadership behaviors through the leadership expectations of societies. In other words, executives tend to lead in a manner more or less consistent with the leadership prototypes endorsed within their particular culture. In turn, leaders who behave according to expectations are most effective. We also found that some leadership behaviors are universally effective such as charismatic/value-based leadership; others are much more culturally sensitive such as participative leadership. Finally, we identified truly superior (and also truly inferior) CEOs by the degree to which their behaviors exceed (or fail to meet) their society's expectations. All in all, understanding national culture gives us a heads-up as to which kinds of leadership will likely be enacted and effective in each society. We believe that the GLOBE journey has helped us understand the complex, tricky, and fascinating relationships among societal culture, organizational behavior, and leadership processes. This paper is a celebration of twenty years of collaborative work conducted by more than 200...
