Creating Lasting Change Using Organizational Strategy

Image
A successful organizational strategy requires the fundamental changing of behavioral patterns and economic structure to meet environmental needs. Executives have developed the ability to adjust policies & procedures, communicate their needs, and implement strategic approaches but often fail to understand the cultural significance of employee thought patterns in achieving their results. It is the agreement of employees and their ability to understand the economic rules of their organizations that will determine how successful the company will become.  By understanding what motivates employees to perform, encourage proper behavior through satisfaction, and helps them find solutions to problems through innovation an organization create a more efficient system that can compete effectively in the market. Each organization is a socio-economic hub that maintains cultural vantage points that will determine either its success or its failure through specific employee behaviors. 

Short Story: Dusk to Dusk, Ashes to Ashes

Image
Painting by Dr. Murad Abel Short stories have the ability to spark the imagination and lead the reader with a thought or concept to ponder. Each store is unique and became popular over the 17 th and 18 th centuries from the storytelling of the past. They made their way into magazines, books, newspapers and other printed works. The short story is designed to quickly entertain the reader while leaving a lasting impression. Short short stories, or flash fiction, has a basic structure such as the exposition (introduction), complication, climax and resolution. The difficulty with such stories is that they are so short it is hard to build a story with dynamic characters and therefore descriptions are generally brief and artistic. It isn’t easy to write a clear store within a page or two. Short stories are also known in China where they are called “smoke long” which means they are finished in about the time you smoke a cigarette. Most of the great writers like Ernest Hemingw

The Meaning of A Boundless Moment by Robert Frost

Image
A Boundless Moment by Robert Frost He halted in the wind, and — what was that Far in the maples, pale, but not a ghost? He stood there bringing March against his thought, And yet too ready to believe the most. "Oh, that's the Paradise-in-bloom," I said; And truly it was fair enough for flowers had we but in us to assume in march Such white luxuriance of May for ours. We stood a moment so in a strange world, Myself as one his own pretense deceives; And then I said the truth (and we moved on). A young beech clinging to its last year's leaves. The poem is one of seasons changing and the cycle of life. Each May the bloom comes out and brings life to the death of winter. The poem is about a single moment when the characters see that life has changed. The layers of meaning can be deep but on the surface it appears Robert Frost is discussing nature and its cyclical momentum.   Everything in nature moves through patterns. The poem indicates that

The Fog Warning by Winslow Homer

Image
The Fog Warning (1885) In Winslow Homer’s painting The Fog Warning (1885) he paints a halibut fisherman that is racing against the clock of time. As you can tell from the painting he has a large catch for such a small boat. Perhaps he stayed out just a touch too long in his effort to maintain his livelihood. To small fishing boats a few large fish can make a huge difference in the lifestyle they gain. There is a temptation to test the powers of nature in achieving one’s goals. It is a picture that pushes one to see the how connected man is to nature. We can see that there is danger in the painting. The man is on the sea, the winds are pushing him hard, the waves could capsize his weighted ship. We can envision that the clouds are coming and a storm is brewing. The man may have ignored the fog warning and decided to fish just a little longer than was necessary. The goal of the painting is to stimulate nervousness with the fisherman being alone fighting against the elements. 

Creating Customer Loyalty through Technology Implementation

We are now in the service economy and should learn better on how to integrate technology within the e-commerce world. Considering the explosion in online marketing and service management it is possible to understand the growth in online service research. Understanding how customers view the value of such services is important for overall improvement. Service quality is important for customers who desire to perceive the value of their purchases worth more than the effort and cost of buying the product. When this perception of service quality is high such customers will often reward organizations with higher levels of loyalty. Research has supported the concept that customer loyalties are based in this service quality (Gefen, 2002). New technologies have created the age of e-commerce. This technology has developed fundamental differences in the way people interact and conduct business with customers. More importantly, it also changes the way in which individuals perceive cust
