Corporate Fundamentalist Culture and Sustainability

Question description

You are the senior organizational development strategist for ABC, Inc. ABC is known for its strong corporate culture and recently has experienced difficulty attracting diverse talent to fill major operational roles.

Yesterday, you had a conversation with the career center director of a major university who explained that ABC was gaining a reputation of “behaving more and more like a cult.” The university director explained that some soon-to-be graduates were expressing skepticism about whether they would “fit” in ABC.

You are a member of the CEO’s leadership team, and serve as the team’s knowledge expert on corporate culture. You determined that the leadership team needs to have a dialogue about the culture, perceptions of potential recruits, and potential risks. In advance of any team dialogue, you have decided to develop a white paper* that will be disseminated to the leadership team in advance of a discussion.

Western (2013) [required reading] raises questions about the sustainability of fundamentalist cultures. From your own research and this week’s required readings, develop a white paper* to present the position that fundamentalist tendencies may eventually lead to corporate cultures that can put a company’s longevity at risk.

Please see the link below on writing a white paper. https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/546/1/

Requirements:

  • Develop a white paper 4 to 5 double-spaced pages, not counting the required title and reference pages and appendices. Including introduction and conclusion
  • Please cite at least six scholarly sources.
  • Remember, you must support your thinking/opinions and prior knowledge with references.
  • In-text citation used throughout the assignment and APA-formatted reference list.
  • Please no plagiarism and sources should not be older than 5 years.
  • Include headings organize the content in your work.

Planning and Organizing an Annual Conference

Question description

You will begin your project by selecting a location for your company’s convention. In order for the project to proceed, it must receive approval from the Board of Directors. This document will communicate not only the location that has been selected but the reasoning behind this selection. This document is being submitted to the Executive Level of your company so be sure to exhibit appropriate, audience-specific tone and vocabulary for the purpose of defending your position. In a minimum of 4 pages, please do the following:

First formulate a detailed Project Definition Statement(s) which answers the following questions:

  • What work must be done?
  • Who will do the work?
  • How long will it take?
  • What resources are required?

Because an event this large will generate a huge amount of revenue for the community selected it is possible that some communities might attempt to sway the decision making process in their favor by offering “special deals” or “financial incentives” to improve their chances of being selected. Accepting this type of favoritism is contrary to the ethical code of your company but you must keep the lines of communication open to all communities considered in case of changes during the project planning phase.

Identify at least three ethical and legal issues that should be considered when making the decision of where to locate the convention. State at least 3 actions you would take to ensure the decision of the location of the convention made ethically.

 

Your submission should follow the essentials of APA (i.e., cover

 

page, double-spaced, 12 pt. font, reference section at the end, in-text

citations, etc.). For more information on APA, please visit the Online

Library, which is available through the Resources link

Implementation of a Business Strategy

Question description

Designing an Implementation Strategy

In this Assignment, you will culminate one Course Outcome based on your design of a plan to implement a future-oriented strategic plan of your Capsim Core simulation company:

MT460-5: Design a plan to implement a business strategy throughout an organization.

Once a strategy is developed, it must be implemented. If a sound strategy fails, it is usually due to poor implementation planning, monitoring, measurement and a lack of corrective action. Essentially, a strategic implementation plan is an action plan, enhanced with tools to monitor and measure how effectively and efficiently business activities are aligned with strategic goals and objectives. In this assignment, you will design an implementation plan that monitors and measures the alignment of your business unit and functional level business activities with your enterprise and corporate level strategies for your Capsim Core simulation company.

Implementation Action Plan Design Document

The implementation action plan you design will be a detailed document outlining processes and procedures for your chosen Capsim Core simulation company at the functional level (Research and Development, Marketing, Production, or Finance) of strategy. The initiatives and activities related to the functional level of strategy are carried out through the creation and enforcement of standardized processes and procedures. Policies and systems must also be reviewed and modified as needed to ensure success, but should remain aligned with the enterprise and corporate level strategies. You will use the Balanced Scorecard (BSC) methodology and Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) to ensure all business initiatives and activities are linked directly to the enterprise and corporate level strategies to manage, monitor and measure performance of the implementation plan. The data in your Capsim Core Reports and the Proforma Report will be useful in the design of your implementation strategy. Use the following guidelines to design your implementation action plan:

  • Develop an action plan to implement your strategy, to include the following components:
    • Objectives: list of corporate (departmental) goals and objectives.
    • Strategic Initiatives: list of strategic initiatives planned to achieve goals and objectives.
    • Balanced Scorecard: an overview of how objectives will be achieved using the BSC methodology.
    • Critical Success Factors: identify elements vital to successfully achieving objectives.
    • Key Performance Indicators: list the key performance indicators for each objective.
    • Time Frame: establish timeframes and deadlines for each initiative and task.
    • Guiding Policies: list of policies needed to guide strategic initiatives.
    • Enforcement Policies: list of policies needed to enforce accountability.
    • Systems: what systems are necessary to support strategic initiatives.
    • Processes: list of processes that will facilitate strategic initiatives across functional areas.
    • Procedures: list of standard operating procedures that inform on task execution.
    • Resources Needed: list common and uncommon resources needed to complete each initiative.
    • Accountability: identify teams and roles that are held accountable for results and outcomes of strategic initiatives.

Your action plan will be supported by intensive evaluation and analysis of your strategies, company’s core competencies, tactics, and strategic controls. You will need to complete the following before developing your action plan matrix. You should use the

  • Review and refine the goals and objectives at the enterprise and corporate levels of your Capsim Core simulation company. Pay special attention to the goals and objectives of your chosen department (Research and Development, Marketing, Production, or Finance). At this stage, you should have developed an entire organizational and departmental strategy to use for this assignment. Ensure your goals and objectives are designed appropriately using SMART principles.
  • Review and refine strategic initiatives for your chosen Capsim Core simulation company department (Research and Development, Marketing, Production, or Finance). Ensure the strategic initiatives are aligned with the organizational and departmental goals and objectives before moving forward.
  • Develop and Illustrate a Key Performance Indicator tree, including each component:
    • Enterprise level strategic goals
    • Corporate level (departmental) strategic goals
    • Strategic Initiatives
    • Critical Success Factors
    • Key Performance Indicators
  • In the format of a Balanced Scorecard strategy map, illustrate the relationship between dimensions of the Balanced Scorecard Methodology and your organizational and corporate strategy. Illustrate the alignment of organizational goals and objectives with the corporate (departmental) goals and objectives. Create and align critical success factors and key performance indicators with each corporate goal and objective. Relate the critical success factors and Key Performance Indicators with each dimension of performance in the BSC methodology. Be specific and avoid using generalizations when creating Critical Success Factors and Key Performance Indicators.
  • Explain the relationship between the dimensions of the BSC methodology and your organizational and departmental strategy. Thoroughly explain the Balanced Scorecard strategy map you created.
  • In a core competency diagram, illustrate the connectivity between your Capsim Core simulation company’s enterprise and corporate level goals and objectives, company’s strategic core competencies, and Key Performance Indicators. Be very specific and avoid using generalizations when establishing and aligning Key Performance indicators with your company’s core competencies.
  • Explain how your company’s core competencies and the Key performance indicators are aligned with the enterprise and corporate level goals and objectives. Thoroughly explain how the Key Performance Indicators will measure achievement of the higher level goals and objectives.
  • Use a minimum of three peer-reviewed research resources to substantiate your strategic decision-making.

cation–anion distances chemistry homework help

Question description

Unit V Problem Solving

In the ionic compounds LiF, NaCl, KBr, and RbI, the measured cation–anion distances are 2.01 Å (Li–F), 2.82 Å

(Na-Cl), 3.30 Å (K–Br), and 3.67 Å (Rb–I), respectively.

1. Predict the cation-anion distance of each ionic compound above using the values of ionic radii given in Figure 7.7

on page 257 in the textbook. To receive full credit, you must show how you predicted the distance for each

CHM 1030, General Chemistry I 3

molecule by providing a step-by-step solution for each molecule. The solution for each molecule is worth 8 points;

thus, a total of 32 total points is possible for this question.

2. Calculate the difference between the experimentally measured ion-ion distances provided at the beginning of this

assignment and the ones you have predicted in problem 1. You must show how you calculated the difference for

each molecule by providing a step-by-step solution for each molecule to get full credit (6 points for each molecule;

total possible points for this section is 24 points). Assuming that we have an accuracy of 0.04Å in the

measurement, please indicate for each molecule if your predicted ion-ion distances are accurate or not accurate

with respect to their experimental ion-ion distances (2 points for each molecule; total possible points for this

section is 12 points). A total of 32 total points is possible for this question.

3. What estimates of the cation-anion distance would you obtain for these four compounds using their bonding

atomic radii? (Note: these values are also in Figure 7.7 but are different from the ionic radii.) For each of the four

compounds, calculate the difference between the predicted ionic bond distance, which you calculated in problem

1, and predicted atomic bond distances you calculated in this problem. To receive full credit, you must show how

you calculated the difference for each molecule by providing a step-by step solution for each molecule (6 points

for each molecule; total possible points for this section is 24 points). Again, assuming that we have an accuracy of

0.04Å in the measurement, indicate for each molecule if your predictions are less or more accurate using the

atomic radii prediction method; explain your answer (2 points for each molecule; total points possible for this

section is 8 points). Using your knowledge of atomic and ionic radii trends in the periodic table, why might one

prediction method be more appropriate to use than the other in certain molecules (worth 4 points)? A total of 36

points is possible for this set of questions.

Sociology Essay Questions

Question description

Based on the textbook Getting Real About Race by Stephanie McClure and Cherise Harris(2015)

1. It is simplistic to suggest that any contact between members of racial groups automatically improves race relations. Based on research identify (a) the ways in which isolated contacts can reinforce stereotyping and prejudice, and (b) the types of contact that are most effective in improving race relations. (Make sure to use your own words to summarize the research findings. Using everyday language and hypothetical examples to restate study patterns in plain language is a helpful technique to avoid plagiarism.)

2 .Minorities faces many misunderstandings and misperceptions of them in everyday life. Please describe 3 specific stereotypes and how they negatively impact the group. (Please focus on the stereotypes presented in this weeks reading regarding African Americans and Native Americans, and make sure to cover both groups) Sometimes we consumes stereotypes in the media and use the cultural racism frame to reproduce them that is, we may not think Trayvon Martin is an inborn criminal, or that Native Americans are inborn alcoholics, but assume they come from environments that encourage them to “act out” the stereotypes. As sociologist, how might you point to other structural (not cultural) factors for why (a) African Americans face criminal justice challenges and (b) Native Americans face demeaning self-concepts? (Hint: these factors would initiate from outside their own communities, institutions–Give very specific examples in your own words).

Extracting passwords

Question description

Linux systems keep user account information in the passwd file and the encrypted password in the shadow file.

The passwd file containing account information might look like this:

smithj:x:1001:1001:John Smith:/home/smithj:/bin/bash

The shadow file containing password and account expiration information for users might look like this:

smithj:KJDKKkkLLjjwlnttqoiybnm.:10063:0:99999:7:::

The fields in the shadow file are separated by a colon, with the first field being the username and the second the password.

Under normal circumstances, the password is encrypted but for the purpose of this assignment, you can assume the password is already unencrypted.

Review the bruteLogin function program on pp. 58 through 59 of Ch. 2, “Penetration Testing with Python,” of Violent Python: A Cookbook for Hackers, Forensic Analysts, Penetration Testers and Security Engineers.

Make the following changes/additions to the function:

  • Modify the bruteLogin function to use both the passwd and shadow files. Assume your passwd and shadow files include two accounts.
  • Change the bruteLogin to extract the username and full name from the passwd file and the password from the shadow file
  • Change the output to display the full name when confirming successful FTP Login; e.g., “Myhostname FTP Logon Succeeded: John Smith/ KJDKKkkLLjjwlnttqoiybnm”

China’s Impact on Japan and Korea

Question description

Unit 3 Essay: China’s Impact on Japan and Korea

You have now read a chapter on the early history of East Asia that focused primarily on the history of China but also included the equally important early histories of Japan and Korea. In an essay of approximately 800 words, please explain when and how Japan’s and Korea’s histories were impacted by China, but also what was unique about the historical development of each. To do so, you will want to take as your starting point the period during which East Asia first becomes clearly identifiable as a cultural sphere with developed states in each case – roughly, the sixth to eighth centuries. In writing your essay and thinking about its structure, you might consider the following questions, although you should make your own judgment about what should and should not be included and discussed:

  1. Should the introduction define the term East Asia, the period of time in East Asian history under consideration, and which countries are being included in the discussion?
  2. Should the introduction define clearly the topic that will be discussed and also offer a tentative assessment? (For example, to what extent were Japan and Korea impacted by China and to what extent were their histories entirely unique?)
  3. Should the essay assess the status of China as of the Tang Dynasty, when Korea and Japan were developing into unified states? (For example, by that point in time, what kinds of political systems and intellectual traditions had emerged in China?)
  4. Should a concise overview of how a state emerged in both Japan and Korea and the points at which China had an impact on that process be given?
  5. How did the development of Korea and Japan differ?
  6. How will the essay be concluded? You might reflect on question 5.

Reading Material for the Essay

In addition to reading the reviewing the relevant sections in our textbook on China, Japan, and Korea, also review two additional sources relevant to our essay topic.
