Abstract
Renegade Armor LLC is an organization that specializes in the sale of body armor for combat soldiers, law enforcement, and private security companies. It started as a very small business and has expanded rapidly to the point of realizing the need to globalize its efforts. Its success has been based of two major factors. First is the ability to deliver a quality product at a low price, and the one on one customer support they offer. Second, and most importantly, is their ability to groom their company structure to fit the needs of both its employees as well as its customers. Through their willingness to be flexible and receptive to change and restructure they have afforded themselves the ability to stay on top of a very high priced and competitive market.

...Decision Making Process Ashley Lopez MGT 230 University of Phoenix September 26th, 2013 The decision making process used by the student is one which focuses on the pros and cons of the decision needed to be made and potential consequences of the decision whether they are positive or negative. When purchasing a new vehicle the student had to base her decision on the financial obligations it would take in order to be able to afford the new car and whether or not it would take from other financial obligations she already had. The first process in the student’s decision making process was to identify the pros and cons of purchasing a new car. the pros were that the student would have better and more reliable transportation than her current vehicle, the costs of repairing her current vehicle would decrease to none because the vehicle would be new and the potential for the vehicle to break was slim to none, the new vehicle would have more space and a warranty as well. The cons of purchasing a new vehicle for the student was that the new vehicle’s payments would be more than her current vehicle which meant less money for luxury items and the increase in cost of insurance for the new vehicle. The pros clearly outweighed the cons in this matter. The second step was to determine which vehicle would be most suitable for the student and hr child. Once the student chose the vehicle she wanted, she then searched the area for the best deal, although not sacrificing quality for...

...Organizational Structure Paper Kristin Arzaga MGT/230 August 28, 2013 Organizational Structure Paper Daimler Truck is widely regarded as the world’s highest quality truck producer. The customer base of the Daimler truck company includes nearly every country in the world. The parent company, Daimler AG distributes a total of more than 100 individual vehicle designs, including cars, vans, trucks, and buses in about 200 countries throughout the world. The models represented by Daimler incorporate Mercedes Benz, Mitsubishi Fuso, Western Star, Orion bus, Thomas Built Bus, Detroit Diesel as well as Freightliner. Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is an associate of the Daimler group and works as a different organization from Daimler AG. This is to detach the automotive category from the truck category and let each company focus on their specialized product lines. This is a classic example of a divisional style organization and this paper will use The Daimler Group to describe organizational structure, functions, and design ("Daimler", 2013). The history of DTNA with Daimler goes as far back as 1981, when Freightliner Corporation was purchased by Daimler-Benz of Stuttgart, Germany. By using the expertise and fiscal power of Daimler-Benz Freightliner rose to leadership of the United States heavy-duty sector. Daimler Trucks North America is closely aligned with Daimler's international commercial vehicle strategy. Daimler Trucks North America models support the crucial...

...Decision-Making Process Sandra Wilton MGT/230 August 29, 2013 Pat Chatman Decision-Making Process My journey thinking about college was very long with many years of dreaming to enroll in school. There was always something in the way of me getting my education. Graduation was over 35 years ago in 1976. I found myself not being able to move up in jobs because I did not have a degree. Everything I applied for needed that piece of paper. Being a single Mom and raising a daughter it just was not in the cards for me to attend school. There was also another fear that it may be too hard and that passing would be too much of a challenge. I found myself being very hard on myself and talking my way out of pursuing my dream. My son came along fourteen years later and now I had two children and no extra time or money. The dream continued and my daughter graduated from college. Being so proud but still feeling that void. My son registered for college and had a year under his belt. I decided I needed to at least look into it and see what it may take for me to enroll. Being excited and scared I thought my turn is going to happen so the call went into University of Phoenix as well as others and my goal began. I was in step one of my biggest decision. Step two was determining which school would be my choice. Several schools were looked at and University of Phoenix was chosen and my life was to be different from now on. Working through steps...

... and very important; this barrier can be addressed by practicing active listening with the team. Maybe a team leader needs to be in control of every group and start off the initial topic at hand. If all members aren’t involved make sure you have other ways to get in touch with them, for example, via email, call, or text. Another barrier is team members don’t understand their role and contribution to the team. By evaluating the team’s effectiveness you are aware of these barriers and if it’s holding the team back from being a high functioning team. You then can take steps to correct, one at a time, to get the team over the barrier. 4. What measures will be put in place to evaluate if the team is operating successfully? Your response should be at least 100 words. -Successful teams can use halftime breaks to evaluate if the teams is functioning appropriately. This break reassesses what is working for the team and what is not. At the halfway mark of the team project managers of the work teams can assess the project and then can determine or evaluate what can be done to improve. It is the manager’s responsibility to give the team members the confidence that is needed. That way if they are faced with a setback they have the knowledge and confidence to get it right and move forward. Effective teams have common characteristics.

If the selected strategy is not successful I would then choose communication. The reason why I would choose this to be the second strategy is because without communication how each individual do supposed to respond to things that they don’t agree? I do believe that if the communication level was straight forward, and have open questions are concerns, then the two individuals would understand one another. 4. What potential road blocks might be encountered in resolving the conflict? How would you address these? Your response should be at least 100 words.

Although it is bad to consume these foods on a daily basis, the body will still need some bad carbs to function. In addition, physical fitness is something that everyone should also incorporate into their lives.
