CASE ANALYSIS INTRODUCTION Organizational conflict is a state of discord caused by the actual or perceived opposition of needs, values and interests between people working together. Conflict takes many forms in organizations. There is the inevitable clash between formal authority and power and those individuals and groups affected. There are disputes over how revenues should be divided, how the work should be done and how long and hard people should work. There are jurisdictional disagreements among individuals, departments, and between unions and management. There are subtler forms of conflict involving rivalries, jealousies, personality clashes, role definitions, and struggles for power and favor. There is also conflict within individuals — between competing needs and demands — to which individuals respond in different ways. Conflict styles are typically seen as a response to particular situations. By contrast, we argue that individual conflict styles may shape an employee's social...

Innovation League Report 2013

...InnovaTIon Study prepared, June 2013 by Incite League TabLe 2013 Innovation and execution for consumer brands Incite | Innovation League Table 01 Introduction Innovation matters for any brand. It’s the number one influencer of consumer purchasing behaviour and it has a big impact on sales potential. But it’s wrong to assume that only shiny technology products attract consumer plaudits for innovation. Read on to learn which brands are seen as the most innovative in FMCG, Retail, Finance, Automotive, Technology and Charity, as well as how you can influence how consumers feel about the innovation your brand displays – without relying on products. Incite, the market research consultancy, has produced its Innovation League Table for 2013, revealing who’s got the right formula, as well as how brands can apply new strategies to excel at innovation. Incite surveyed 3,000 UK consumers both unprompted and then based on over 500 popular brands to rank their perceptions of the UK’s most innovative brands. For the first time since its inception, the study also measured the degree of perceived innovation in marketing communications to investigate consumer attitudes towards what makes a brand innovative and how this relates to its overall perception. We know that marketers have the power to drive innovation, but in order to woo consumers, brands need to understand the underlying factors that are perceived to drive innovation in order to apply it to their brand. Is it...

League of Nations

...The League of Nations was created in the harsh circumstances of the post-war period. As it was Wilson who gave to life the idea of the League it was discussed greatly at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919. The US president came up with the idea of the organization and so it was him that produced its regulations, also known as the Covenant. This Covenant decided which situations were of concern and how decisions on these were to be reached. At the same time it also decided how the organization as to act in order to achieve and to secure the aims set out. The league was incorporated into all of the peace treaties of the Paris Settlement and aimed at promoting international co-operating and to achieve international peace and security. It also aimed at promoting what became known as “collective security’ which is the guarantee that the states incorporated in the league would protect each other in case of aggression. The league faced many obstacles in achieving peace as some countries were not satisfied with the terms of the peace treaties and wanted to change them. On the other hand, the ones who had made gains in the war period wanted to maintain these and so acted in a manner that would not bring disruption. Having said this, nobody could be certain if all of the members of the league were ready to maintain the order that was achieved after the war. The three main channels of the policy of the League were moral persuasion, economic sanctions and the use of military...

League of Nations

...Kerryann Simpson Professor Livingston Smith History 131-2 March 18th, 2014 “Examine the reasons why the League of Nations failed to preserve peace.” Weaknesses of the League of Nations The League of Nations came into existence on 10 January 1920 as a result of the First World War (WW1), it was one of Woodrow Wilson's 14 points to create a body that would settle international disputes in ways other than fighting / military action. He wanted to prevent another war like WW1. The main aims of the League of Nations were to maintain peace through collective security and to encourage international co-operation. The league had a number of successes, but a greater number of failures, thus it was not a complete failure in its attempt to preserve peace. The failures of the League of Nations were caused by their great amount of weaknesses. There was a lack of world powers, they lacked military power. They used economic or trade sanctions instead of force, that which they did not have. Their decision making ways were slow which led to a delay in their responses in problems. The leading members in the League of Nations had a greater self-interest for their own countries and their economic growth. In many circumstances the League of Nations was seen as weak and useless. As commonly known, one of its’ greatest weaknesses was the absence of the United States (U.S) despite the fact that it was Wilson, the president of the U.S who initiated the idea; when the American people...

League of Denial Report

...The League of Denial is an exposé on the NFL’s handling of medical research on concussions, specifically Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), in the late 1990s and early 2000s. The documentary, put together by investigative reporters Mark Fanairu-Wada and Steve Fanairu, details the different suppression and negligence of the research being done on the effects of concussive hits in football. One of the most telling storylines in the documentary is the one that revolves around Dr. Bennet Omalu and Mike Webster. Mike Webster was a Hall of Famer for the Pittsburgh Steelers during the 1970s. After his career was over, he began to experience a personality change. He was losing his memory, and according to his wife, he started to garner anger issues. Webster died at the age of 50. After Webster’s death, Dr. Bennet Omalu performed an autopsy on him. Omalu examined Webster’s brain, and found it to be severely atrophied. Omalu then began a quest to find the answers on why Webster’s brain was so atrophied. Upon further investigation, Omalu found that this was a recurring disease in athletes who are involved in contact sports (football, wrestling, hockey, etc.). This was the inception of CTE, which is only diagnosable in an autopsy post-mortem. Omalu then brought his evidence to the NFL, which gave him the figurative cold shoulder. They would not take Omalu seriously, and took steps to discredit him. After a long fight, Omalu took a break in trying to convince the......

The Red Headed League

...Dr Watson’s Notebook Case No. 2136 ‘The Red Headed League’ Date: October 1890 The Red headed League As I came across Sherlock, I had accidently bumped into him while he was just beginning on a case. There, on an armchair, was an elderly gentleman, with vivid flaming hair. He and Sherlock were in a conversation, but I had accidentally bumped into them and interrupted them. Sherlock was showing his talents to Mr Wilson, observing how he can tell that Mr Wilson used to work in hard labour, finding out that he did indeed, working as a youngster. So, after I had helped take notes of Jabez Wilson, we finally looked at what Mr Wilson had to tell. He handed over a news article, which was a jobs advertisement. It was called the red headed league, advertising a vacancy for the job. It was a very good pay, £4 a week. But, there were requirements before you could apply. You had to be red-headed Mr Jabez Wilson. Jabez Wilson is a very large, elderly man. He had fiery red hair and rather red in the face too. He had small, fat encircled eyes. He wore baggy grey shepherds’ check trousers. A faded black frock coat which was unbuttoned in the front and also wore a drab waistcoat with a heavy brassy Albert chain and a square pierced bit of metal dangling down as an ornament. He also wore a frayed top hat and fading brown overcoat with a wrinkled velvet collar lay upon a chair beside him. To me, he looked like a very average British tradesman and rather slow obese man...

Indian Premier Leaue

...THE IPL WAS WELL MARKETED Introduction IPL a franchised T20 cricket league consisting of 11 teams is the most shortened version of the cricket – 20 overs (or 120 balls) per side – and is played under a three hour timeframe. IPL was founded by BCCI and it’s into its eighth season and is very successful. IPL became the world’s most viewed T20 league in 2010. The estimated brand value of IPL was to be around US$7.2 billion in 2014. It bring forth players from different national teams, lured them with enormous pay checks through the process of auctioning, tie up with huge brands that advertised during the premium timeslots over the Televisions, introduced cheer leaders to the sport and got its way into the cricketing schedule. IPL catered to the mentality of the increasingly busy consumers by reducing the length of the game making it more innovative and enterprising. The T20 format was already existed in countries like the West Indies, England etc., but IPL brought in the exciting new feature of owning a franchise, as in the case of English Premier League, and have consumers support the franchises of their choice irrespective of players in the team. The experience was so tempting and extremely difficult to resist for a normal consumer. The shortened version of the game, the big names on the cricket field from all around the world, the celebrity factor and the cheer leaders made cricket fans hooked in front of the TV.

League of Legends

...League of Legends (LoL) is a multiplayer online battle arena video game developed and published by Riot Games for Microsoft Windows[1] and Mac OS X. It is a free-to-play game supported by micro-transactions and inspired by the mod Defense of the Ancients[2] for the video game Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. In League of Legends, players assume the role of a "champion" with unique abilities and battle against a team of other players or computer-controlled champions. In the most popular game modes, the goal is to destroy the opposing team's "nexus", a building which lies at the heart of a base protected by defensive structures. Each League of Legends game is discrete, with all champions starting off each game fairly weak and progressing by accumulating gold and experience over the course of the game.[3] League of Legends was generally well received at release, and it has grown in popularity in the years since. By July 2012, League of Legends was the most played PC game in North America and Europe in terms of the number of hours played.[4] As of January 2014, over 67 million people play League of Legends per month, 27 million per day, and over 7.5 million concurrently during peak hours.[5] League of Legends has a large, active competitive scene. In North America and Europe, Riot Games organizes the League of Legends Championship Series, which consists of 10[6] professional teams in each continent. Similar regional competitions exist in China, South Korea, Taiwan, and......

League of Nations

...Background[edit] The 1864 Geneva Convention, one of the earliest formulations of international law. The concept of a peaceful community of nations had been proposed as far back as 1795, when Immanuel Kant's Perpetual Peace: A Philosophical Sketch[5] outlined the idea of a league of nations to control conflict and promote peace between states.[6] Kant argued for the establishment of a peaceful world community, not in a sense of a global government, but in the hope that each state would declare itself a free state that respects its citizens and welcomes foreign visitors as fellow rational beings, thus promoting peaceful society worldwide.[7] International co-operation to promote collective security originated in the Concert of Europe that developed after the Napoleonic Wars in the 19th century in an attempt to maintain the status quo between European states and so avoid war.[8][9] This period also saw the development of international law, with the first Geneva Conventions establishing laws dealing with humanitarian relief during wartime, and the international Hague Conventions of 1899 and 1907 governing rules of war and the peaceful settlement of international disputes.[10][11] The forerunner of the League of Nations, the Inter-Parliamentary Union, was formed by the peace activists William Randal Cremer and Frédéric Passy in 1889. The organisation was international in scope, with a third of the members of parliaments (in the 24 countries that had parliaments) serving as...
