Management Three Case Studies Event Case Study

… The city of Ha'il is in Saudi Arabia, and the festival relates to the unique and rich history that the city presents, and which it could demonstrate to the country. In order to plan this festival, example from Australia, Tunisia, and Morocco were utilized. The Ha'il festival, however had to be unique to this city and though it could research elements from other festivals, it would have to ensure that, in the end the city would be portrayed for all its cultural glory. Therefore, the city decided upon strategies that included the specificities of the region, including a falconry exhibition, saluki dogs contests, poetry evenings, family traditional enterprises, a camel calling contest and a competition involving sand dune car racing.

… :, 2). As with Lenovo, quality control was a concern, as was accountability. Regular reports were issued to top executives through the formal reporting techniques to ensure that necessary tasks were being accomplished on time for the Canada Games to be a success.

While Lenovo was striving to increase cooperation between different departments as part of its efforts, with an attempt to create new ideas and projects, for the Canada Games, the primary desire was realizing planning objectives. The 'creativity' of planning and decision-making had already taken place, now the mammoth operation itself had to be undertaken in a systematic fashion. The schedule of the Canada Games was fundamentally more compressed than that of Lenovo, requiring tighter management. Its scope was also finite in nature…. [read more]

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]


HK Case Study

… HK Case Study

HK's current budgeting system is failing the company. Most departments struggle to meet their budget targets, and are forced to scramble to cut costs in order to meet budget. Success in the organization is defined almost entirely by the budgets, and has become very difficult for managers to achieve. Company performance is suffering as a result.

There are two key reasons why the budgeting process at HK contributes to the failure to meet the target sales and profits. One reason is because the budgeting process is not directly tied to these results. The second reason is that the budgeting process is not conducted in a manner that views the organization as a system, but rather as a set of small, competing and…. [read more]


Change at Dupont Case Study

… DuPont Case Study

Approaches to Change

The Organizational Development method of change is most visible in this case study in terms of the NASCAR metaphor that was used to reorganize and re-theorize each individual's role within the organization. This type of explicit and purposeful change, with clear goals from the outset ultimately achieved through direct and specific action, is the hallmark of this type of change. Specific issues in the company were addressed with equally specific actions and re-definitions, with change occurring in a planned and projected manner.

Appreciative inquiry, on the other hand, does not seek to identify and rectify problems, but rather examines situations and individuals with an eye towards the benefits and assets they offer to the organization, then maximizes these benefits.…. [read more]


Change and Culture Case Study

… ¶ … Culture Case Study

It is fairly common to have mergers and acquisitions in the business world. But this can also happen in the medical field where hospitals merge. In order for a merger such as this to go smoothly, managers must work to ensure a smooth transition ahead of time. There may be animosity and ill will between the merging hospitals, especially if they are a short distance apart from each other. Each facility's employees may feel that the other hospital is competition and once a merger takes place, it will not be easy to turn off those feelings like one turns off a running faucet. Now that the two hospitals are one, management must devise ways to make the work environment a…. [read more]


Inventory Management a in an Importer Industry Case Study

… Inventory Management

The raw materials, goods in process, and finished products represent different forms of inventory. Every stage of production of commodity represents money tied up until the inventory finds its way out of the premises as purchased product. The merchant stock, for instance, contribute to profits only when by selling them money goes into the cash register. Inventory management is instrumental in the determination of what are on hand, where it is used and how much finished products results. An efficient inventory management involves watching over constant flow of units in and out of already existing inventory. The business entity will control the transfer of units, which in the end makes the inventory remain at manageable levels.

… Robin Hood case study, by Joseph Lampel, is a very complex tale of a leader whose organization is experiencing sudden distraught, miscommunication, and external attacks. Robin Hood is very similar to any modern day leader who is charged with the task of taking an organization through great leaps in order to reach and sustain success. While reading through the case study, a business oriented person can easily identify many complex issues that need evaluating and improvement.

In this study of the Robin Hood story, I will focus our attention on the three key issues, and how I would apply management procedures, policies, and practices in order to create the biggest positive impact on the organization. The three areas of concern that I feel will have…. [read more]

Crisis Management and Public Relations Case Study

… The fans were also watching the singer's performance, and they expressed great shock. This was evident on social media. Irish singer Sinead wrote published letter to Miley Cyrus on the same. In the letter, Sinead expressed concern for Miley, suggesting that the young singer had allowed herself to be nude in public. The letter states that, although Miley perceives her actions as cool, she will experience harm in the end because she has allowed "people" to take advantage of her. The letter urges the singer to be in control, and avoid the manipulation, to act or perform naked. Although Miley performed provocatively, the real beneficiaries are the people behind the scenes. In addition, her performance continues to tie women as toys for men to use…. [read more]


Nursing Managing Case Study

… Measurable outcomes for these goals include the following: 1. No further outbreaks of gastroenteritis in the unit, 2. Symptom control and improved health status in the affected residents 3. Identified possible causes of the gastroenteritis, 4. Review of the unit's infection control practices (Garibaldi, 1999).

A single case of gastroenteritis in an elderly resident in an aged care facility may signal the beginning of an outbreak. (Kirk, Roberts, & Horvath, 2008)

Immediate nursing actions to manage the suspected infected resident include collecting a faecal specimen to confirm infection (Crisp & Taylor, 2009). In terms of the physical assessment, the nurse should palpate, auscultate and percuss the affected abdominal area to isolate the source of the pain. Often, gastroenteritis can be diagnosed by a simple physical…. [read more]


Managerial Decisions This a Case Case Study

… Grouping of jobs by function develops a unitary form of organization whereby each primary function is allocated to one major subunit and the groups are decided upon by functional specialty. A unitary Bagby organization is disadvantageous in that the employees focus on functions and not customers, senior management is concerned with making operation decisions and coordination instead of strategic planning and finally coordination problems rise across departments. On the brighter side a unitary organization promotes functional expertise, offers a well-defined promotion path and promotes effective coordination within functional area. A second organizational structure is grouping of jobs by physical location or product which leads to a multidivisional organization whereby each unit performs multiple functions. Bagby Company operates in five European countries will benefit in that…. [read more]


Labor / Management Relations Do You Feel Case Study

… Labor / Management Relations

Do you feel that the labor relations system, as currently constituted, is good for effectively resolving disputes? What are the system's strengths and weaknesses? How would you change or reform it?

The reason why is because of the indirect role that the federal government will play in labor disputes. Where, they will only become involved once the situation becomes so extreme, that it could have an impact upon the nation. In this aspect, the approach that is being used is waiting for an event to become so severe, that the federal government has no choice but to act. This is problematic, because it shows how the current system allows the two sides to turn the situation into a spectacle. Where, the…. [read more]

If the principles and guidelines of the assessment procedures at Millennium Insurance are to have any meaning they must be followed, and as such the only factors Smart should consider are the degree to which Ketchum met or failed to meet her established goals. The fact that the major goal she failed to meet was unstructured and that she took maternity leave at the beginning of the year should not be taken into account now -- they were talent into account when the goals were initially established, and they were agreed to. It is during the goal establishment period that accommodations for maternity can be made and problems should be raised, and they should not influence the evaluation.

Human Resource Management Case Study

The question that can be applied in this case study is whether or not transforming full-time employment into part-time employment, the organization apply too much pressure towards balancing the individual's identify more towards the life side of things and lose thus their partial influence on the work side.

This is not necessarily a matter of whether the employee will give the same productivity performance when he is at home against when he is the office, although a discussion can be launched as to whether the employee is potentially subjected to distractions at home that do not exist at work. It is, however, a matter of whether he will…. [read more]

CASE ANALYSIS: INSTITUTIONALIZING STRUCTURAL CHANGE at HEWLETT PACKARD

In any company, change is a difficult process. Stress levels rise, and communications may result in conflict situations rather than solutions.

The case study to be discussed focuses on one of the most painful human resources issues, and that is employee turnover and the way it manifests at Domino's Pizza. The company's turnover rate reached 158% in 1999. In the food industry, this turnover rate is not unusual, as turnover of 200% rate has been registered by other companies in this field. However, a complex set of measures needed to be taken. As a consequence, Domino's CEO started to focus on the company's human resources, by implementing certain strategies, like: improving store managers' workplace quality, improving personnel selection, recruitment, and retention methods, or using financial incentives. The result of these strategies was a decreased turnover rate that reached 107%. The…. [read more]


Super Bowl Case Study

… This kind of interpersonal communication would help marketers to reach out to the early majority population who rely on word on mouth and peer reviews to decide on purchasing a product.

After evaluating these risks, few back up strategies have been devised accordingly. First and foremost, as a primary foundation of project management, planning and budgeting need to be performed in the preliminary phase. Also, the inherent risks to the current situation should be analyzed and are addressed as per last planner model. A new method, often called Last Planner, to cope with the situation met in construction production control, has been developed by Ballard (2000) since 1992. The method has emerged in an inductive manner from a series of industrial experiments (Ballard and Howell, 1998). Considering this theory, following remedial actions are suggested considering that the risks have materialized.

… 08 hours (5.13 days) and 165.58 hours (6.19 days) respectively (these times represent theoretical minimums).

However, management has chosen to produce Gizmos in runs of 100 or 300. Based on the prior assumptions, it takes approximately 11.2 days in total to produce 100 units each of Gx, Gy, and Gz, and approximately 33.5 days in total to produce 300 units each of the same. In both cases, even assuming the customer consistently orders his maximum volume from Quality Parts, the company is producing units far faster than the customer needs them; the surplus translates into additional inventory costs associated with stockpiling completed gizmos beyond the customer's immediate needs. An important caveat is that some time must be spent to manufacture the subassemblies, but we do…. [read more]

Chain of Retail Stores Case Study

… Project budgeting is a function of managerial planning and not merely a computational exercise (Hart, Wilson, & Keers, 2000). In fact, there has been a movement to streamline the budget process and a group of pioneering Scandinavian companies have dispensed with the budgeting process altogether because of the lengthy arduous process that is usually involved (Neely, Bourne, & Adams, 2003).
