As stated in the case EDU was divided into divisions, branches and different units, and as a single company employee’s need to feel as one with no boundaries. Implementing a document management system will help them come together as a company rather than a department. Getting people to feel they are part of a company rather than a department will help build trust between all employee’s and departments. Once implementation is complete, I would anticipate employees will be able to find the information they need more quickly and increase the efficiency of support teams, which will in turn increase customer satisfaction and you should expect to see increased customer satisfaction
Regardless of where the document is the result will be in a unified manner.
·After my first recommendation they can implement the other options a year or two down the road. Like communities of practice and an Expert directory. As nowhere does it say they can’t implement another knowledge management solution. ·The document management system’s features and benefits are what I believe should be included in a document management system.
Statement of Issues
The Ontario Ministry of Education (EDU) from my eyes (K. Everest) has a couple of issues but one of the fore running issues is electronic data. Having the same document on more than one computer’s hard drive, or having up to 20 different version of that document should be unwarranted. There is an estimated 3 million different documents on EDU’s computers and if there is up to 20 different version of one document there could realistically be 1 million original documents. Another key issue is knowledge sharing as more than one person could be doing the same research. Having more than one person doing the same research without each other’s knowledge is inefficient and unacceptable business practice. A minor issue is security, having people get access or not get...
A. Compare the terms shepherd and pastor. – In the New Testament the bible says, and he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers (KJV Ephesians 4:11). The word pastor used here in Greek is ποιμήν, or poimēn meaning shepherd, is to tend as a shepherd or as a supervisor; to rule. The truth is, the word pastor(s) is used only one time in the New Testament with the word being translated to mean shepherd. In today’s society we use the word pastor in many different ways to describe the leaders of the church. The word shepherd is the more appropriate translation for the word. The word shepherd is used at least thirteen times in the King James New Testament.
B. Contrast in house calls and personal visits. - When looking at the work of the pastor, visitation plays a role in part of the pastoral ministry. Depending totally on your definition of personal visits, they could be just that… to stop by for a chat or some personal matter on the pastor’s part. This does not mean that the pastor cannot be encouraging, uplifting at the same time. The house call is more than a personal visit, it is planned and it has a set goal with ministry involved. Getting to know the people in the congregation and the various needs they may have in life is necessary. House calls are a way for the pastors to know how to minister to his congregation...
...IBM Case Study
1.) IBM advertises itself as a company that provides service and business solutions. It used to be positioned as a computer hardware company, but as more companies like HP and Dell began to pop up they were forced to move away from this image. I recently had the pleasure of speaking with an IBM sales person, and he said that they very much rely on the value of their products, rather than competing on price. IBM positions themselves as having better, but slightly more costly, products than their competitors. IBM doesn’t want to be seen as just another computer company, but as a company that can help you run your business, and make life all around easier for you.
2.) Prior to 1993 IBM’s advertising was handled by a large number of different agencies. Until the late 80’s this wasn’t a problem because IBM was such a dominant player in the market. However this eventually became a problem as IBM was beginning to loose its identity have portray itself in a wide variety of ways around the country. In 1993 IBM moved all of it’s advertising to Oglivy & Mather whose goal was to “keep the IBM brand fresh, interesting and topical.” In 1995 they introduced “Solutions for a Small Planet.” These ads were meant to create a unified brand image of IBM around the world, while connecting everyone on this “small planet”....

Task : P2, explain how different market research for a product or service using approprtiate methods of data collection.
In this P I will be showing how different market research methods can be helpful in identifying whether there is a market for that business in the area where I live. I will also describe how these different research methods complement each other.
For this report I will use the high-end store Zadig &Voltaire.
About Zadig & Voltaire
Zadig & Voltaire is a French brand of ready-to-wear; founded in 1997 by Thierry Gillier, grandson of André Gillier, co-founder of the company Lacoste.
Zadig & Voltaire has stores located all over the globe, where they sell mens and womans clothing and accessories.
For a fashion store like Zadig & Voltaire observation is a very useful source of gathering information about customers buying behaviour. You can see which items draw the customer’s attention and what doesn’t. So for example: which kind of clothing they look at the most or which articles people are the most looking for
Observation can have a lot of influence on the marketing mix of Zadig & Voltair. If they notice that the customers like a particular style, they might produce a lot of it the next season. Observation is not very useful when you are trying to identify if there is a market for Zadig & Voltaire in places...

...Calculate the 3 economic risks to analyze the economic risk associated to the country.
CAD/ GDP risk in 2012 is 0 (given in the figure) which means low risk because it is larger than -2%.
Debt service risk in 2012 = (Total debt service/ export) * (total export (fob) * export of good and service)
=13.2*77057/96096 = 10.58%
10.58% denoted low risk to Argentina as it is smaller than 20%.
Import reserve risk = reserve / total import cif * 12 months = 43223/62715*12 = 8.27 Months
8.27 months denoted low risk to Argentina as it is larger than 6 months
There are three potential opportunities for FDI investor to consider investing in Argentina.
1. Agricultures – oilseeds
2. Secondary industry – Motor vehicle
3. Service – Tourism
