Lesson 14 progressive and eco safe driving
Introduction
Progressive driving is about making maximum progress for the road, traffic and weather conditions without risking safety. This requires more driving skill along with better planning and awareness, particularly when you are overtaking or negotiating bends in the road. Eco safe driving is very similar but with more emphasis on saving fuel.

Lesson aims and objectives
During this lesson you will learn how to overtake fast moving vehicles on a single carriageway, how to negotiate bends at speed and how to recognise when speed can result in a waste of time, energy and fuel. By the end of this lesson you should be able to:
?
explain the difference between progressive driving and speeding;
?
explain the conditions that are likely to result in a skid and losing control of the vehicle;
?
consistently drive at such a speed that you can stop within the distance you can see to be clear;
?
explain what factors need to be considered when assessing how fast a bend can be negotiated safely and the risks involved;
?
identify the sharpness of a bend on approach and the most suitable speed and gear to negotiate the bend; ? demonstrate a reasonable level of skill in negotiating bends of differing shapes and complexity;
?
explain the likely places it would be unsafe to overtake and why;
?
demonstrate a reasonable level of skill in overtaking moving vehicles at speed on a single two way carriageway. ? demonstrate an eco driving style.

Subject brief
Progressive Driving
Speed versus Progress
There is one golden rule about speed never drive beyond the limits of your vision - always drive at such a speed that you can stop safely within the distance you can see to be clear. Speed does not necessarily equal progress. For example when you are proceeding in a constant flow of traffic that has few significant gaps there is little point in racing to overtake at every opportunity as your progress will continually be hindered by the overall flow of the traffic. You would be constantly slowing down and accelerating to save a few minutes out of a 60 minute journey time.

The fuel you would use on such a journey would potentially be doubled and your energy would be sapped from all the extra concentration needed to cope with the overtaking and the constant changes of speed. Therefore the progressive driver uses his brain and does not waste fuel or energy for little or no gain in overall journey times.
One extra stop for fuel would loose any gain you might make.

Balance - the first thing that you need to learn to successfully negotiate bends at speed is balance. The vehicle achieves maximum adhesion when the weight of the car is evenly spread over each wheel and across the whole of the tread of the tyres .

Keeping a grip
When driving at speed road and tyre adhesion become critical. Therefore anything that will influence this adhesion must be considered when you are driving. Tyre tread depth, tyre pressure and the car’s suspension all affect the car’s ability to stop or take corners at speed. Changes in the road surface also play a major role. Wet leaves, mud, oil, ice, snow and water on the surface of the road all affect adhesion as does the actual material make up of the road surface itself. Certain road surface materials give a better grip. Changes in the way the road inclines can also affect adhesion particularly on corners. All the above need to be carefully considered if you want to make maximum progress without compromising safety.
Driving round the bend
There is a lot of skill and balance needed to make maximum progress round bends. However, the first thing to remember is the golden rule. Just because you can take a bend at 50 mph doesn’t mean that you should, especially, if you cannot see what's around the corner. You may discover a steam roller, a combine harvester or an articulated lorry waiting for you!
When approaching a bend you need to consider; ? of the bend; the shape
? can see ahead; what you
? the road surface (and does what's on it incline in any way)
? will hit if you lose control. what you
If there are trees along the road and you are pushing the car and/or your own ability to its limits then you are dicing with death. Bends take many “boy and girl racer’s” lives.

As soon as you brake or turn the weight of the car shifts so adhesion may primarily be occurring on only one or two of the tyres and, if the wheels lock, only across part of the tyre’s tread. This dramatically increases the risk of a skid
(i.e. the loss of adhesion) and makes the car very unstable. Therefore you should not be braking or accelerating at the point you enter the bend. Ideally you should maintain a constant speed into and around the bend. As you come out of the bend you can begin to accelerate.
Sensitivity - when you turn your steering wheel it should be done gradually and smoothly without jerking. You are trying to minimise the sharpness of the curve you are turning without cutting across to the other side of the road or allowing your road position to become a hazard to oncoming vehicles. On approach to the hazard (i.e. the bend) you should apply your hazard drill making sure you are at the correct speed and in the correct gear before you start to turn.

Overtaking at speed on single carriageways Overtaking moving vehicles at speed on a single carriageway is potentially the most dangerous manoeuvre you can perform. You are driving on the wrong side of the road while traffic may be heading towards you.

Choose a safe place to overtake
Perhaps the most important thing to learn about overtaking is where not to overtake. You should never normally overtake immediately after a warning sign, in particular those shown below:

There are two important points to learn from this. Firstly, if your view ahead is not absolutely clear wait and secondly; always be prepared to abort the overtake, if necessary.
The overtaking procedure
The overtaking procedure is similar to that covered on the dual carriageway lesson, however, we now have to consider oncoming traffic. You would probably use the hazard drill at least three times as shown below.
Never ‘follow through’
You may occasionally find yourself in a stream of traffic all of which intend to overtake a slow moving vehicle. Make sure that you can see clearly ahead before overtaking in this situation. Never blindly follow the vehicle in front assuming that it is safe to overtake.
P
S

Cancel your signal.

M

You need to look well ahead for these hazards and also for any road markings.

Move into the left hand lane without cutting in.

Check your mirrors to see what is following and ensure it is safe to move back into the left hand lane.

SG Speed up, especially if you had to reduce speed earlier.
P

Check your mirrors and glance to your right to ensure it is safe to continue with the overtake.

SG Adjust your speed to match that of the vehicle in front if it is not safe to proceed with the overtake or select the best gear for overtaking.

Eco-safe driving
Eco-safe driving is a style of driving that will help to reduce damage to our planet and the air we breathe whilst improving road safety and saving you up to 15% on your fuel bill. Transport currently accounts for 20% of all air pollution emissions in the world.

inefficient use of the gears and speeding (i.e. exceeding permitted limits or driving at speeds unsafe for the prevailing conditions). The skills required for hazard perception, defensive driving and progressive driving play a big part in eco-safe driving as they will help you to avoid inefficient use of the accelerator, brake and gears through better awareness, anticipation and planning. There are four key aspects to being an eco-safe driver namely: 1. Minimise harsh or rapid acceleration
Whenever it is safe to do so, gradually increase speed by gently depressing the accelerator. Don't peak the revs on your rev counter, try to get them to grow steadily in line with your speed on your speedometer. Don't accelerate unnecessarily. Look well ahead to see what is happening, to ensure that any acceleration now will not be wasted a little later on because you have to brake.
Let gravity aid you so that if you are going down hill you may find you can fully release pressure on the accelerator and still maintain a safe speed.
2. Minimise harsh braking or unnecessary stopping
Look well ahead and if you see that you will need to reduce speed, do it gradually using engine braking by simply releasing pressure on the accelerator rather than applying the brake at the last minute. Gradually adjust your speed to time your arrival at meet situations or when turning right such that you can potentially maintain progress and avoid having to stop.
Similarly, you can do this when emerging from a give way junction provided you have a good view of the road you intend to emerge into as you approach the junction.
3. Engage higher gears as soon as possible without labouring the engine
Avoid engaging unnecessary intermediate gear changes so that you can more quickly engage higher gears or delay engaging lower gears. Modern cars are designed to deliver power even when engine revs are quite low and provided you haven't lost momentum as you slow down you will be surprised how late you can leave a downward gear change without risking an engine stall. Eco-safe driving is not about driving slowly (although this would undoubtedly help to reduce fuel consumption and accidents) it is more about avoiding senseless wastage of fuel through unnecessary acceleration or braking,

Lesson 14 progressive and eco safe driving
4. Avoid manoeuvring whilst the engine is cold if at all possible
Cold engines use more fuel. Do any manoeuvring before you get out of the vehicle rather then when you return to the vehicle (for example by reversing into parking places or driveways rather than reversing out). Not only does this save fuel, it is also a much safer way to emerge onto a road.
Finally, if you need to use a manual choke to start the vehicle, always remember to press it back in once the engine is sufficiently warm. Driving safety is paramount, so never sacrifice safety for fuel saving.
The above behaviours will not only save you fuel they will also save wear and tear on the car’s engine, brakes and tyres thus saving you even more money. By driving less impulsively and continually planning ahead you will not only save money you will also become an even safer driver. So save money, save lives, save our planet - adopt an eco-safe style of driving.

...monthly cash flow at the small business I am currently consulting for, an immediate analysis was needed on the organization’s operational and financial structures. Our small advisory team aimed to complete a corporate examination that would recognize deficiencies and recommend new practices that would ultimately lay the framework for future success and stability. In the end, discoveries were presented and discussed with the President of the firm and goals were established. The change principles were then relayed to the other members of the management group, who were invited to share their vision and views, however, these principles were met with conflict and friction. Previously, company wide decisions were made by these few individuals in senior management. Regrettably, these corporate leaders did not have the wherewithal to forecast the effects of their decisions, as they did not have an actual pulse on the company’s revenue streams or any firm idea of business management. They implemented frameworks, made hiring decisions and purchases that did not add to the bottom line nor prove to create any return on investment. To the growing detriment of the firm, these individuals were given free reign by the President to operate under lax structures.

Ms. Harris is a successful manager of a relatively new division bringing in $40 million business deals. Ms. Harris has been an excellent asset to the company; she is hard working and is looking to move up. Although Ms. Harris has made great achievements in her life, she has poor communication skills with her employees. Her employees have stated that she is curt, sometimes defensive and overwhelming with facts. This makes Ms. Harris unapproachable and hard to work for. Employees feel that they are being talked down to. Ms. Harris is frustrated with senior management’s lack of attention to her successful division. Ms. Harris has many assumptions about management and their reasoning for overlooking her division. Ms. Harris feels she is being discriminated against racially and by gender. Furthermore, Ms. Harris does not know that her employees find her difficult to work with. Most importantly, upper manager is focused on numbers rather than creating a productive and open work environment. Ms. Harris and upper management decided for her to continue to stay in the division because she can identify with changing demographics and bring a different perspective to the business.

How might these three employees characteristics affect the performance of the organization and are there any recommendations for additional assessments[?] All in all I believe these three employees’ characteristics have a positive effect on the performance of the organization and are self-motivated, self-actualized employee, and the employee who needs close supervision is when management can provide an environment in which the employee’s enjoy what they do and feel like they have a purpose and have pride in their work. One thing I did notice though is that management does need to help the workers to develop skills for better work performance as well as to be able to advance in the company.

Should Ryan stay at VC Brakes and continue to help with the TQM initiative? If so, what should he do differently? The approach taken was the right thing to do and in my opinion was well planned. The fact that it didn’t work out however means that it wasn’t the right fit for the organizational culture of VC Brakes. If VC Brakes had no division between the engineers and the rest of the operations I believe the approach would have provided successful results. Andrew Ryan was effective in his original endeavors as the senior manager of the engineering services (ES) team. However I think this question is referring to his task of implementing TQM into VC Brakes, so in that regard no he was not effective. Although TQM had great values Ryan was unable to break the divider between management and lower level employees to make progress with TQM. Lower level employees were said to have some creative and (in my opinion) easy to fix ideas on current operations. For example the box cutters that were standard were said to not be up to par. Although upper management didn’t change the box cutters out for new ones originally Ryan could have told upper management to change the box cutters simply as a way to get employees on board with the idea of implementing TQM. If Ryan had exhausted his efforts to make the change...

...In the article Women in Management in America, women are highly under-represented in upper-level management in many U.S. companies and are also making less than men performing the same types of jobs. The article explains that the glass ceiling is one of the main barriers preventing women from reaching upper management positions. The barrier has been around for many years, but women are starting to break the glass ceiling. There are some companies that are beginning to recognize that women bring a wealth of talent and expertise to the table and they are exploring this talent and giving them opportunities at upper level management positions. Using the White House as evidence, we currently have Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in one of the most powerful positions in the world. The article also brought up some specific barriers to women's advancement in the workplace. Training, career development, promotion, compensation, "old boy network" and discrimination. Discrimination was on the top of the list, however it has existed for many years in the United States. Congress has over the years passed various statues to address the situation. One of the most important federal statutes that deal with discrimination is the Civil Right Act of 1964 (Fogliasso, 2011).

...본 연구는 고객만족을 달성하기 위해서는 판매원의 고객지향성이 전제되어야 한다는 가정에서 출발하였다. 판매원의 고객지향성에 관해서는 기존연구가 부족하였으며, 특히 실증적인 연구가 이루어지지 않았다, 지수개발의 첫 단계로서 판매원 고객지향성의 개념을 기존문헌들의 고찰, 전문가와의 면담, 연구자의 추론을 바탕으로 재정립하였다. 그 결과 판매원의 고객지향성은 마케팅 컨셉트의 실천적 요소, 인간적 요소, 시간적 요소, 비용적 요소 및 기술적 요소의 5개 차원으로 정리되었다. 고객지향지수 측정을 목적으로 총 39개 문항이 개발되었는데 척도정화의 과정을 거쳐 최종 22개 문항으로 정리되었다. 척도정화과정에서 마케팅 실천적 요소는 신념적 요소와 고객응대적 요소 두 개의 하위개념으로 분리되었다. 고객지향지수의 인덱스로서의 가치를 높이기 위해 구성요소간의 가중치를 회귀분석을 통해 구한 후, 가중치가 부여된 구성요소간의 선형결합으로 이루어진 함수가 본 연구에서 도출한 고객지향지수(COIS: Customer Orientation Index of Salesperson)이다. COIS의 특성을 관찰하고 진단도구로서 활용할 목적으로 COIS와 판매원 성과와의 상관관계를 분석하였다. 이를 위해 조정변수를 도입했는데, 그 내용은 판매원과 고객간의 관계의 질(RQ: Relationship Quality), 미래거래에 대한 기대(AFI: Anticipation for Future Interactions), 판매원의 전문성(SE: Salesperson Expertise) 등 세 변수이다. 하위집단 회귀분석을 해본 결과 세 변수들은 모두 조정변수의 역할을 하는 것으로 판명되었다. 즉, 관계의 질이 높은 상황에서는 고객지향성과 성과간에는 정의 관계가 존재하나, 관계의 질이 낮은 상황에서는 부의 상관관계를 보였다. 미래거래에 대한 기대에 관해서도 그 기대가 높은 상황에서는 고객지향성과 성과간에 정의 상관관계를 보였으나, 기대가 낮은 상황에서는 부의 상관관계를 나타냈다. 판매원의 전문성과 관련해서는, 전문성이 높은 판매원의 경우에는 고객지향성과 성과간에 정의 상관관계를 가지고, 전문성이 낮은 판매원의 경우에는 부의 상관관계를 가지는 것으로 나타났다. 이러한 결과를 놓고 볼 때, 판매원의 고객지향성이 높다고 해서 반드시 높은 성과를 기대할 수 없다는 사실이 발견되었다. 따라서, 판매원의 고객지향성과 성과의 관계를 설명하는 데 있어서는 조건부 틀이 보다 적합함을 알 수 있다. 연구결과를 바탕으로 판매원 관리의 진단도구를 개발하였다. 첫째, 판매원 포트폴리오 개념으로서 고객지향성과 성과를 기준으로 한 매트릭스를 통해서 판매원 집단의 건전성을 진단해 볼 수 있었다. 또한 각 유형별로 바람직한 포트폴리오를 구성하기 위한 전략적 대안을 제시하였다. 둘째, 판매원 배치 모형을 개발하였다. 고객지향 욕구지수를 도입하여 B2B 영업 등 특수부문에 어떤 판매원을 배치하여야 하는 가에 대한 해답을...

Communication in Organization

...Communication in organizations encompasses all the means, both formal and informal, by which information is passed up, down, and across the network of managers and employees in a business. These various modes of communication may be used to disseminate official information between employees and management, to exchange hearsay and rumors, or anything in between. The challenge for businesses is to channel these myriad communications so they serve to improve customer relations, bolster employee satisfaction, build knowledge-sharing throughout the organization, and most importantly, enhance the firm's competitiveness. EFFECTIVE VS. INEFFECTIVE COMMUNICATIONS Perhaps the importance of good communication is best understood by considering what things would be like in its absence. For instance, if a company has no mechanism for recording and transmitting special order requests from its customers, and the employees in the sales and fulfillment areas only interact minimally, there's a good chance that when it receives a special request the company will have difficulty delivering what the customer wants. It may even lose the sale as employees grapple with an unusual request the management hasn't prepared them for. Now consider a company going through a merger. Top executives at the merged entity proclaim that there will be thousands of layoffs to boost efficiency, but management is slow to say who will be affected, what the criteria are for deciding who is laid off, and what......

Generic Prescription Drug Cost Hike

...benefit added to Medicare. Both George W. Bush and Al Gore have proposed a plan to expand Medicare to include full prescription-drug coverage for senior citizens receiving Medicare, at the expense of taxpayers. It is obvious why this issue has been such a priority for both candidates. Senior citizens vote at a much higher rate than other age groups. Both candidates know the importance of these senior citizen votes and believe that the proposal of adding a prescription-drug benefit is something that will appeal to a vast number of senior citizens. Both candidates have portrayed the issue as being very critical and as a serious problem that needs to be addressed. The question, however, is whether or not such drug coverage is a worthwhile project to undertake. Is the problem indeed serious enough to call for the type of reform that the candidates are proposing? Medicare is already a very costly program to keep up, and adding prescription-drug coverage would increase these costs even more. In order to fund this project, there will need to be a tax hike. Should taxpayers subsidize this prescription-drug benefit? Is there a good reason why this redistribution should take place? What are the benefits and costs of this proposal? These and other questions will be addressed in this paper as we examine the following topics: the need for senior citizens to have prescription-drug coverage, the political rhetoric involved with this issue, the projected shortfall in the budget of the......
