  • Consumer Culture and British Fashion Magazine Influence

    This is a 27 page paper discussing the influence of British fashion magazines on the British consumer society and their influences throughout history up and including the 1990s. The history of the fashion industry in relation to cultural influences, consumerism and the projected images of women and men in today’s society has led to a great deal of research in the fields of sociology, psychology and economics. While fashion magazines have changed their format a great deal in the past century as today their pages contain over one third in advertisements, their content has also changed a great deal. While researching the development of British fashion magazines within the last century, magazines such as Vogue, Elle and InStyle, initially showed that the focus of fashion magazines was women’s clothing and the models were portrayed as older elite women who replaced the dolls previously used. The influence of the fashion magazine on the female consumer at the beginning of the 20th century reflected the expectations of society in regards to conservative or opulent looks depending on the decade. Today, British fashion magazines tend to reflect the standards, or lack of standards, as now seen in the music and media industries. A recent study of focus groups’ opinions of images found in Vogue magazine found that most women and men feel that they can discern from the images presented in fashion magazines those images which are more “realistic” than others. In addition, it appears that in regards to consumer choice, fashion magazines are considered one of the less reliable sources available to consumers who prefer peer, family and local store recommendations over that of fashion magazines which appear as unreliable and unrealistic in regards to most situations and events. Nevertheless, the continued popularity of fashion magazines and their continued focus on the Western and/or American entertainment industries as a source for fashion is considered as a reflection of societal cues and consumer behavior.

    A 12 page literature review examining the value of accountants to the small business. The literature review is for use in a study of small businesses in which they will be surveyed regarding the sources of the accounting expertise they use, for the purpose of relating accounting presence and business failure.

No such specific information appears to be available, however, a surprising discovery in light of the critical nature of efficient and optimal operation of business of any size. Despite the dearth of information directly related to the proposed hypotheses for the study, the information that does exist points to the need for the proposed study. Bibliography lists 19 sources.

  • Creative Management Styles and Research

    A 60 page research-oriented paper discussing creative management styles. There are organizations that have not been able to make the transition from the traditional autocratic or authoritarian (rather than the authoritative) style of management. Today, creative management styles come in a variety of names: situational contingency management, the transformational approach, the cultural contingency approach, and value-based leadership. All, however, have their roots in TQM. Organizations that could not be successful in implementing TQM generally are not successful in implementing any of these, either, because all, including TQM, require a corporate culture that supports creativity and a commitment to change, and values open communication between workers and departments to the point that they will defend it if necessary. This paper examines the underlying problems preventing the formation and nurturing of that corporate culture so necessary for sustaining any creative management style.

The paper includes discussion of a mail survey identifying three middle-management attitudes toward TQM's potential effects on their jobs, including detailed descriptions of both observed and potential limitations of the study. It concludes that middle managers have legitimate fears that can be overcome with Deming's admonishment to invest in training and education of all employees, including the middle managers of which Deming himself made no mention.

Other businesses with Proctor & Gamble's rigid hierarchy would only be immobilized, but this company is able to use its strict procedures to channel the creative energies of its managers into a single common direction.

  • Comparing Management at United, Delta, and American Airlines

    A 9 page paper discussing the management similarities of the three airlines. American, Delta and United Airlines are all commercial passenger air carriers. Beyond that, they have only a few similarities. All are old commercial carriers that were facing bankruptcy together until the US Postal Service approved air travel for the US Mail in 1925. There, they reached a point of divergence that continues today. It would seem that, because of the emphasis on employee ownership, United would be the 'best' to work for, at least as long as the pilots remain happy with their contract. The management style is appealing because it takes the employees into consideration perhaps more than the others do Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Ritz Carlton Hotels and TQM

    An 11 page paper discussing the second service organization, and the first hotel chain, to win the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award. Experts in TQM previously would have believed that a hotel chain would not have been able to achieve an atmosphere of total quality and continuous improvement, but Ritz-Carlton has demonstrated that such an achievement is indeed possible. TQM obviously has been achievable at Ritz-Carlton, and in meaningful and lasting ways - employee turnover has dropped to less than 30 percent in an industry where 'normal' is 100 percent, and customer satisfaction perennially remains at 97 percent. In order to continue the trend, however, Ritz-Carlton will need to take extra precaution in ensuring that it does not become complacent with its commitment to quality. Continuous improvement will be the key, a factor apparently recognized already by Ritz-Carlton management and employees alike. Bibliography lists 12 sources.

    5 pages in length. According to industry analysts, there has never been – nor will there ever be – a single, most effective manner by which to manage. Indeed, the vast number of components that comprise the overall aspect of leadership precludes there being an exclusive method for optimal management strategies.

When assessing this notion as it relates to the films "Twelve Angry Men" and "Wall Street," the writer discusses different approaches each movie utilizes to gain much the same outcome.

    8 pages in length. Classical management carries with it myriad definitions, in particular the need to maintain an atmosphere that is restrained and simple, conforming to established taste of critical standards or adhering to traditional forms.

Its emergence took place in the forty-year span between 1880 and 1920, where it was significantly dependent upon machinery in order for work to be appropriately subdivided into highly specialized, routine tasks. From a management point of view, the very foundation of the classical theory was to establish a universal method appropriate for all situations; indeed, it was a search for truth.

  • Western and Eastern Management

    A 10 page paper comparing management approaches in the East and West hemispheres. Management in the East and management in the West has been seen in the past as being two totally different concepts, similar only in the fact that they each are intended to result in effective management of the organization. The trend of globalization has done much to even out many of those differences, however, as has increased attention to transparency in management. Economic difficulties in both the East and West have obliged organizations in each to operate more efficiently, which in turn has led businesses of both origins to be more pragmatic in their operations. The result to date has been that Eastern management is less circumspect than in the past; Western management has begun to acknowledge more than only the bottom line and quarterly results. Management in the East and West has begun to converge into another form that has taken the best of both. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • HRM and Staffing

    11 pages in length. Staffing a company with competent, thorough and self-motivating people is a constant struggle for contemporary Human Resources departments; finding qualified employees who are not only knowledgeable but also personable and of the teamwork mindset is almost as difficult as finding that proverbial needle in a haystack. Today's work ethic is severely compromised compared with fifty years ago when doing a good job was as much of a satisfaction as earning a week's pay. People actually took pride in their work and would not consider giving less than one hundred percent effort. The contemporary workforce, however, is filled with self-absorbed individuals who approach a job with the attitude of "What's in it for me?," leaving HR departments frustrated with the lack of fortitude in today's workforce. However, there are ways to address a situation where perhaps the most perfect candidate has not filled the position, enabling HR managers to mold and guide their staff with communication, solid leadership and an interactive environment to the point where a cohesive alliance is developed.

    A 12 page paper discussing the present state of development of this technology.

National and international copyright protection has been found not to be enough to protect the rights of those owning rights to intellectual property. The entertainment and software industries particularly have been adversely affected by individuals’ abilities to appropriate content for their own use (or worse, for sale to others) without paying developers or providers for the benefit they receive from the products. DRM is an emerging technology that seeks to rectify that situation, at least in part. The paper discusses Intuit’s use of DRM protection in TurboTax® and Microsoft’s proposed Palladium product.

  • Learning Organizations' Functions of Management

    A 6 page paper discussing the four primary functions of management – Planning, Organizing, Leading and Controlling – in both their historic meanings and as they are applied to the learning organization. Management of the future has an appearance that looks far more like people working together for a common set of goals. Leadership was not always a requirement of management in the past, but it gains increasing importance with each passing year as poor substitutes increasing are found to be inadequate. It is in this vein that at least one of the labels of the four functions of management, controlling, carries a negative connotation. This is not the controlling that Henry Ford practiced, but rather is sound management of the organization in which people are free to be creative and innovative. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Human Needs, Human Resources, and Human Resource Management

Bibliography lists 12 sources.

  • Scientific Management Theories, Motivation, and Theories

    This is a 5 page paper discussing various aspects of management including scientific management theories, the Hawthorne Experiments and other areas including an example of a social structure found within a work setting. Over the course of history, work, mainly manufactured work, has been studied in terms of the various elements required needed for the production of an item and the time it would take workers to complete this task. In addition, with the introduction of certain industrial technologies over time, manufacturing and the management of manufacturing systems and teams have been altered to accommodate new trends and technologies. Management, within an historical perspective, had little to do direct contact within the employees which was generally left to the foremen. However, Frederick Winslow Taylor in the 19th century began to think in terms of “scientific management” in which production management became important to improving the overall production of any manufacturing area. While scientific management looked mainly to efficiency in production, the Hawthorne experiments in the 1920s found that work places are very much social systems and workers reacted accordingly. Lastly, employee motivation need to be established by owners and managers in order to initiate recruitment for firms and retain employees once recruited. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

Greater worker autonomy, greater transparency on the part of GM’s management and cooperation from GM’s unions all can combine to create an effective and dynamic environment in which employees are encouraged to be full contributors to and partners in the company’s purposes. GM already has accomplished this once, and recently. If it would, it could apply the lessons learned through Saturn to the whole of the GM organization. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Bolman and Deal's Theories as they relate to School Systems

    This is a 10 page paper discussing the primary management practices within the school system in the context of Bolman and Deal’s four organizational frames. Bolman and Deal’s text “Reframing Organizations” (2003) deals with the concepts of frames within the workplace which employs the “usable knowledge” available from a management perspective and also addresses the failures within organizations “due to lack of imagination”. Organizations are broken into the four conceptual “frames” of structural, human resources, political and symbolic which account for the various aspects of planning, staffing, organizing, directing and controlling within any organization. The management functions within school systems can also work within these frames as they include all of the same vital components which must be managed and maintained as within corporations. A study published by Souchet (2001) is used to show the management practices within the school system in regards to the role of a principal within a small urban setting in the Mid-Western United States. The school principal within the school setting is “also known as the middle manager and the site administrator” in organizational terms and is considered as the major managerial influence within the school as he or she must determine “whether the education is effective or ineffective, whether morale is high or low, whether the school climate is positive or negative; whether personnel are satisfied or dissatisfied; whether students achieve or don’t achieve; whether parents and the public are cooperative or uncooperative; and whether there is effective or ineffective management and leadership”.

  • Business and the Effects of Environmental Regulation

    This is a 9 page paper discussing the impact environmental legislation has had on business and the role of business in regards to global resource management and conservation. Within the last two decades, the environmental impact of business and industry has led to necessary legislation in global resource management. In many instances, businesses have had to change their design, processing and testing practices in order to comply with legislation which cost many industries a great deal of money. On the other hand, there has also been a great deal of waste in the business and industry sectors which has had an extreme environmental impact globally. Because of this, the role of business in regards to global resource management and conservation has increased significantly. Many businesses have taken a pro-active stance and initiated environmentally-friendly practices which not only decrease their own costs, especially in the area of energy consumption, but have also provided the businesses with a positive public image and can help in the marketing of their products. Because the world’s population and need is seen as increasing while the natural resources around the world are seen as decreasing, it is the expected role of business to not only comply with environmental legislation which will decrease the environmental impact of industry but businesses must also become proactive in the areas of conservation and global resource management.
