Case Study (Fact Pattern)

Criminal activities have been on the rise in many states of the United States. To control such criminals from going unpunished in the society, the criminal system uses the aid of prison and correctional facilities. The United States of America is one of the top countries who have a very large number of criminals locked up behind bars (LENNARD, 2012). With so many prisoners in the country, it has been important for the government to categorize prisoners with minor offences with those prisoners who have committed major crimes. Therefore, the Department of Justice in the United States transfers this prison categorization task to the Federal Bureau of Prisons (Redding, 2004).

The Federal Bureau of Prisons is responsible to…. [read more]


Blue Ridge Coffee Case Study

… The organization set up decentralized structures on regional basis (Wallace 2004). Sales representatives execute their duties effectively and are accountable to specific managers across the U.S. In effect, the marketing and promotion sections of the organization would operate such that their personnel report to managers at regional levels. Proper organization of the sales force is critical to overall success of the wholesale division and the company in general (Wallace 2004).

Since BRC is a formal organization with clearly defined tasks for salespersons, the promotion and marketing strategies would also tend to be formal (Wallace 2004). If the company had adopted an informal structure to its sale force, the marketing and promotional strategies would also be less formal and less rigid. Overall, the customer service, promotion….

The Situation a) Kelly Thomson

Kelly believes that the company and namely his software department is incapable of properly processing the amount of work with which they are being tasked. He bases his assumption on the sound arguments of insufficient personnel, large amount of work and tight deadlines.

While being pressured to design several prototypes for the new product and in the same time maintain the good quality of the old ones, Kelly believes that he would only be capable of designing a single feature for the product.

Kelly believes that the former success of the retinal scan was only due to sufficient time and resources to develop it. Behind this assumption lays the sound argument of previous experience and professional…. [read more]


Humanistic Theory in, Julie Case Study

… ¶ … Humanistic Theory

In case study, Julie is being affected by a host of different social problems that are helping contribute to her overall levels of anxiety. According to the humanistic theory, the basic challenges that are facing Julie have not been addressed. This means, that certain elements must be taken into consideration, in order for her to have a complete understanding of herself (as a person). The most notable include: her issues of intimacy, trouble getting along with others and a sense of frustration she will constantly feel. This is important, because it shows how some of her basic needs have been met such as: physiological and safety. Yet, when you move beyond these issues, the requirements of having complete self-awareness have not…. [read more]

… 2-year-Old Case Study

Two-Year-old Child Development Case Study

Healthy early childhood development is highly dependent on some rather simple, yet profound variables. The first few feelings that an infant has are very basic instinctual attachments or bonding to his or her immediate environmental surroundings, including caregivers. Security is the primal most comforting feeling an infant has and if it is interrupted in these early often the result is an attachment disorder if not addressed properly. This particular case study is an exploration of child development during these early formative years.

Jason is a playful, bright and healthy two-year-old male, although a little shy. His parents are John, a thirty-two-year-old computer technician and Michelle, a twenty-eight-year-old graphic designer. Both have very serious career goals and Michelle…. [read more]

Bullying: Legal and Ethical Application Case Study

… In any case, Johnny is just a reflection of other troubled children with autism whose cases have not been reported. The challenge arises when innocent students, Tommy, and his mother are to be convinced that Johnny should not be reprimanded negatively. The use of apology letters as suggested in this study is the first step towards reconciliation. In order to ensure Tommy and innocent students are satisfied, the report advocates that Johnny should read the letter loud in class or the assembly grounds. The administration should also take the initiative of duplicate the letter copies to be disbursed to various classes. This will communicate the message that bullying is discouraged whilst ensuring that problems facing the troubled Johnny are also addressed. The goal is to…. [read more]


Bank America Case Study

… A first example in this sense is represented by the very nature of the program, in the meaning that it addresses executives within the firm. The roles and tasks of these particular staff members differ from one position to the other, meaning as such that it is difficult for the firm to plan ahead a process by which to assess the performances of a particular executive, or to create objective expectations regarding their future performances and results. In other words, difficulties are observed at the level of metric performance (Chingos, 2002).

In order to address this shortage, it is useful to create analyses and benchmarks of similar positions within the industry and assess executive performances against these pre-existent patterns, but also against the performances attained…. [read more]

Tesco PLC Case Study

… The innate value of a customer-driven supply chain to increase inventory turns, alleviate stock-outs and be a key contributor to long-term customer satisfaction is a core requirement of any retailing operation (Jones, Clarke, 2002). The pivotal nature of supply chains to the Tesco business model emerges when the internal and external factors are analyzed and put into the context of global expansion. Further, using the Porter Determinants of Competitive Advantage Model to rank order the Return on Invested Capital (ROIC) of various locations would have given the company executives valuable insight into which regions to invest in first (Porter, 2008).

Finally, the internal and external factors also underscore just how critical the sustainability of a high margin, high inventory model is to Tesco's continued growth.…. [read more]


College What Are the Institutions Case Study

What are the institutions values, mission, and vision statements, and are they easily accessible for external communities?

Like any other academic institution, Readers State College is faced with a difficult task when it is asked to identify its goals. Baldridge et al. (2000) point out that while most organizations have specific, stated goals that help them form their decision making process, universities have a much more difficult task, as they must deal with "vague, ambiguous goals" (p. 128). Thus, specific goals are difficult to pinpoint when considering Readers State College, so values cannot be derived from goals in a linear fashion. Instead, the values of Readers State College are derived from its many characteristics, including client services, problem technology, professionalism,…. [read more]

Critical Thinking Faith Case Study

… If the government does declare it to be legal only then should people be allowed to opt for it if they think it is their religious, humanitarian or moral right to do so.

Further the staff members should be put under a short awareness program where they are made aware of the other person's moral feelings and the right to "do not resuscitate" directives. They are to be made to realize that it is the patient that needs to decide about the advance directive rather than his or her family and regardless of what the family says it is important for the staff to act upon the directives given by the patient in writing. Tolerance and the will to act according to the religious beliefs…. [read more]

… Certainly, the political realm is beyond the realm of influence of the managing director of Footwear International, but this does not preclude making efforts to align the company with the more democratic entities in Bangladesh, some of whom will, in fact, be Muslim.

An informed Prime Minister could be a "friend to the company" if the official position could be reversed to favor Footwear International. The managing director could seize the opportunity to capitalize on networks developed in Bangladesh over the years, asking for protocol to support communication with those who lead the country. It is a time to reach out to those who have a clear understanding of the importance of encouraging foreign investment in the country -- particularly after the departure of the…. [read more]

2. The inefficiency linked to the production process is when equipment is stopped, re-configured and out-put is tested before it started off with the next level of activity. In the simultaneous operation of the activity there is lot of wastage during the process and to overcome this wastage company has to maintain high level of inventory during the off season time period so that production efficiency is maintained during peak periods.

Margarita Adlerian the Margarita Case Case Study

… In addition, Margarita's life is still very much in an evolutionary and transitional phase, with her upcoming attendance at law school and the rapid growth of her children through their toddlerhood and into childhood; the Adlerian method of psychotherapy can help her to address issues in these areas as they arise, but it is not exactly equipped to deal with them in a preemptive or predictive mode (NASAP 2011). Though healthier and generally more beneficial life choices will assist Margarita with every situation and relationship she encounters, not all facets can be predicted.

Conclusion

Margarita's situation might seem very bleak and desperate form the inside, but the Adlerian perspective shows that there are very workable solutions to her problems. These solutions will take some time…. [read more]

The Examination of a Business Ethics Dilemma: A Case History of a Medical Supply Company

Introduction of Dilemma:

The functionality and long-term viability of an organization may be as much contingent upon the strength of its ethical resolve as on the quality of its physical output. This is a reality which I became distinctly aware of during my two-year tenure as the head manager for Allied Medical Products. A company which specialized in the production and sale of products specifically geared toward wound-care, Allied Medical was only three years old at the time that I joined its staff. It was fraught with operational problems that I soon learned stemmed primarily from the ineffectiveness of my boss. Mr. Caldwell, as we will fictionally…. [read more]


Oregon School District Provides Higher Bandwidth Learning Case Study

… Oregon School District

This is an analysis of the case study of the Klamath County School District's (KCSD) project to facilitate high-bandwidth learning (Clark, 2001). Headquartered in Klamath Falls, KCSD includes twenty geographically dispersed schools. The KCSD WAN covered approximately 6,000 square miles, supporting about 7,000 K-12 students, and roughly 2,300 computers, many located a long way from KCSD's district office headquarters. There was also an uneven distribution of bandwidth consumption because of the disparity in the number of some students at some of the district schools that ranged in size from 100 to 1,500 students. The KSCD's network consisted of older 56 Kbit/sec frame relay circuits and the company lacked network visibility to monitor network traffic.

Australian Cladding Company Case Study

… These approaches place the human resource management policy formulation at the strategic level. In these approaches to Strategic Human Resource Management it is claimed that: (1) human resource problems are problems solved by linking HRM and strategy formulation at an early stage; and (2) problems with strategy implementation are solved by early adjustment of the HRM to these strategies." (p.299)

Human resources must be included in the planning from the very earliest of stages and this enables human resources to understand what is needed and enables HR to adjust which means that the decisions made about company employees are geared toward the company's overall strategies. Mueller (1996) states that strategic use of human resources requires the following:

According to the DSM, this is a "repetitive and persistent pattern of behavior in which the basic rights of others or major age-appropriate societal norms or rules are violated" (Summary of DSM-IV diagnostic criteria, 2013, Intermountain Healthcare). Fighting, aggression, minor criminal behavior, theft, substance abuse, and truancy are all common signs of this disorder.
