Chapter One Case Study One
1) What do you think of Stacy Snyder’s story? Should she be denied a degree for publicly endorsing drinking to her underage students? To what extent do you believe that potential employers should explore social networking sites to validate the “goodness” of potential employees? Is there anything of your facebook page that might turn off potential employers? If so, are you going to take any action? I think that her case wasn’t handled properly because I don’t feel that it was fitting to deny her, her degree. That was the extreme consequence she could have faced and it shouldn’t have been taken that far. They could have easily told her to take it off or just tell her to make her profile private so that her students wouldn’t be able to see her profile. She should have gotten her degree because she did everything required to do so. Although she may not get a job from an employer who sees that picture, she should still get her degree from the school. I think that employers should have the full extent of looking at peoples social networks. Just because they’ll have a couple pictures of them drinking or attending parties does not mean that they will not benefit your company. It only means that some people are more open about their social life and willing to share that with the world. As long as you are able to take care of the work at your job and help your employers, what you do on your leisure time shouldn’t affect anything. There is nothing currently on my Facebook because I cleaned it all up last year when I started learning how it can affect my future employment opportunities. 2) The webcasting of funerals is an interesting example of the flatness of the world. Is this an invasion of privacy or do next-of-kin have the right to make such a decision? What other significant events in a person’s life might be suitable for webcasting? Identify at least three such events and then do some research...

Chapter 1 - CaseStudy1 and 2 Questions
CaseStudy11. How does Accenture People site help Accenture better serve its customers?
a. It helps in the sense that it makes the other people who are working in other countries to help with getting information easier. They are able to share information easily of different projects and are able to communicate directly rather than waiting. This will help consumers with their output and they will receive things on time or even early.
2. How successful do you think Accenture will be at getting its employees to create their profiles?
b. I think Accenture will be very successful in getting their employees to create their profiles. This social network will be an easy use for all employees and will play a major role in communication between all the employees in all the different countries.
3. Can you see any drawbacks related to employees creating their own profiles?
c. One drawback that I see with employees creating profiles is lack of time. They will spend a lot of time just like people spend on Facebook and that can take time away from doing important things. This can delay production and projects.
1. How would you describe Professional Products’ growth strategy?
a. I think that...

American Idol: A Big Hit for Marketing Research?
American Idol has become one of the largest multimedia franchises in history, with an estimated worth,
according to Forbes Magazine, of well into the billions of dollars. They have made a science out of product
development. In the case the products are singers, but the same powerful principles could well be applied to
virtually any product, physical or virtual. Having a popular TV show to leverage for marketing research and
demand building is a powerful advantage, but one could well do the same thing, albeit on a much smaller scale,
using a blog, and in fact, one could argue that a blog is perfect for this sort of marketing. Take a page from one
of the most successful marketing efforts ever. In this paper, I tried to define the management decision problem
confronting Melissa Marcello and Julie Litzenberger and a corresponding marketing research problem and show

Prime Costs $545,000.00
Less Direct Labor Cost $220,000.00
Direct Materials Cost $325,000.00
Manufacturing Overhead Cost:
Direct Labor Cost/ Percentage of Conversion Cost:

fill in the missing amounts by analyzing the available data.

Over the past three years I have been building a branding and developing

The second I walked into my first public relations class at St. John’s University I
knew what I wanted to do, and what I wanted to create for myself. Did I know how to
do it? Not really, did I know where to start? Absolutely not, did I even know who my
customer was? The answer is no to any questions that would make sense for any young
entrepreneur. In all fairness I was 19, and overwhelmed with excitement. Thru the
years of interning for fortune 500 companies, and working at them after graduation I
decided it was time to play with NYC, and see...

As a part of the human service professional reviewing casestudies will be an important part of the job. Not only should we keep notes on every client but we could use them as a reference for future clients. The casestudies could become useful if past and future clients have similar cases. In this casestudy we will examine family, social, and intimate relationships. Identify any role changes that may have occurred, and immediate and future effects of healthy and unhealthy habits demonstrated in this casestudy.

A DAY IN THE LIFE
1. How effectively do you think Rachel spent her day?
2. What does the case tell you ask what it is like to be a project manager?
Project is a complex, non-routine, one time effort that is limited by time, budget, resources and performance specifications and it’s implemented to meet the customer requirements:
This case shows a daily working life of Rachel, the project manager of large information systems project; the case mainly discussed the way a project manager allocates her time to spent one day in her life. A day in the life also shows a glimpse of what it is like to be a project manager. It also underscores that being a project manager is more social than technical and that project manager spend the majority of their time interacting with various people who impact on a project.
The effectiveness of Rachel spent her day project is complex, non-routine, one time effort limited by time,budget,resources and performance specifications designed to meet customer needs. Considering the casestudy, Rachel allocates her time significantly on activities not done respectively before that in my point of view can be applied as project activities.
Activities such as going over project reports and preparing for the weekly status meeting, going over problems with her boss, participating in a conference call and responding to...
...Aline DeNeuve CaseStudy1
Aline DeNeuve was assigned to organize a company retreat for the Montreal branch after the one she set up for the Calgary branch was a big success. Aline is shocked that most of the employees have low morale and not interested in a retreat after the first one was a big success. Since she was promoted as the new director of training and development at Consolidated Inc. she must find out why the morale and interest level of the employees is so low and how previous management could have let this happen.
Heather, the first employee she interviewed who is an administrative assistant, did not like the supervisor because of his dislike of foreigners. This might be the case because Heather wasn’t given a job promotion so she blames it on his dislike of foreigners. This can be to blame because of her confirmation bias therefore Heather is screening out the fact that the decision was made that Heather was Chinese, not that it is the best choice for the company. Due to this, Heather has taken a lot of days off and the supervisor views this as not caring about the company. Heather also told Aline that a retreat wouldn’t make the company closer and wouldn’t be better for the companies anti sociality. Cosolidated Inc. uses a no tolerance approach on its employees and this prevents its employees from getting close.
