Organizational Learning

When asked to define learning a mundane response to this inquiry would be that learning is simply the acquirement of knowledge. But as a seasoned marketing/management student I can confidently say that a definition of that caliber doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of all the components and concepts that are present when providing a suitable definition of learning. As a marketing/management student I have quickly learned that when discussing the subject of learning there are many aspects. In looking into these many facets of learning we begin to find room for various outlooks and debate. Among the areas that have been indentified are the subjects of Organizational Learning and Learning Organizations. Though to the general public these two subjects may sound the same deciding to make the same exact assumption of their meanings would prove to be the wrong assessment to form. Although these two maybe closely related they both possess their own definitions and notions. Because of their possession of their own concepts there is room for discussion and deliberation. It is within these two subjects that we also find much opportunity for comparing and contrasting.
Review of Literature
Before you can fully begin to form a view point on the subjects of organizational learning and learning organizations you must first have a complete understanding of what these ideas are and also have an understanding of the components that each of these subjects possess. It is only through complete comprehension one can truly begin to form an intellectual view point. So before I can fully begin the task of comparing and contrasting these two notions I must first acquire the knowledge that is a prerequisite for this task. This is why because of my lack of knowledge on these two…...

Chritianity vs. Naturalism

...LCMP 303 OL July 28, 2012 The Worldview Conundrum in Business; Christianity vs. Naturalism In a society that is increasingly hostile to the Christian worldview, one must understand that that hostility is forming changes in the culture. Many businesses in America have operated under the presupposition that Business’ only mandate is to make money with no further responsibility to society. It is the philosophical belief of Naturalism that society owes business the framework upon which to operate with no corresponding obligation to benefit society in return. As America continues to struggle economically it is fair to wonder why. In Business, the conflict between differing worldviews is paramount to the health and sustainability of the economy. Understanding the differing beliefs between the Christian worldview and the worldview of Naturalism, as they pertain to business, will help people see the affect those views have, and potentially have, on the economy of the United States. It is important to define these two worldviews philosophically in order to fully grasp their intent and scope. The metaphysical, epistemology and axiological beliefs of Naturalism will introduce a deeper understanding of this particular worldview. The metaphysical belief of Naturalism is that the natural order is eternal, self sufficient and uncreated. The epistemological belief of Naturalism is that knowledge is gained through human experience and scientific method. Finally, the......

Equinox vs Malibu

...Malibu is a better value, not only because of price but also gas mileage, safety and interior space. While the price of an SUV used to be significantly higher than a mid-size sedan, with the invention of the smaller, car-based models, prices are now comparable. The Malibu starts at $21,995 and goes up to $29,700. (http://autos.aol.com/cars-Chevrolet-Malibu-2013/safety-features/) The Equinox starts at $24,155 and, depending on the features, can max out at $32,665. (http://usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/cars-trucks/Chevrolet_Equinox/) Projected resale value for a standard model Malibu priced at $23,150 after one year is 68% or $15,742. After five years, it drops to 36% or $8,334. (http://www.kbb.com/chevrolet/malibu/2013-chevrolet-malibu/ls/?vehicleid=378427&intent=buy-new) The Equinox’s projected resale value for a standard model after one year is slightly higher at 71% or $17,761. It equals the Malibu at 36% or $9.005 after 5 years. (http://www.kbb.com/chevrolet/equinox/2013-chevrolet-equinox/) For a long term commitment, the sedan holds its value as well as the SUV. The gas mileage between the Malibu and Equinox are vastly similar, also. The Malibu averages 25 miles per gallon in the city and 34 miles per gallon on the highway. The Equinox averages 22 city miles and 32 highway miles so there is not much difference. The 2013 Malibu includes an Ecotec 4 cylinder turbo charged engine with direct injection and variable valve timing that works with a 15 kw......

...Running head: UNIX vs. MS vs. MAC 1 CIS-155 Final - UNIX vs. MS vs. MAC UNIX vs. MS vs. MAC 2 Abstract This paper will explore the history of UNIX, Microsoft (MS), and Macintosh (MAC) operating systems. Not only will I discuss the history of these systems, but I will also dive into the pros and cons of each. The benefits of each over its rivals will also be discussed. Keywords: open source, UNIX, Windows, UNIX vs. MS vs. MAC 3 The topic of what operating system is best has been a long and heated one. But, in the long run, UNIX will beat its rivals in most categories hands down. As the reader will see throughout this paper, undisputed evidence will be presented that will detail exactly how UNIX based operating systems are superior. Operating systems (OS‘s) are a means for users to communicate with the computer. Each OS provides a set of commands for directing the operation of the computer. Without these operating systems to help as interfaces, each user would have to learn the command syntax, which can be very difficult. These operating systems can be menu-driven, which provides a set of menus and lets users choose desired functions from then, or they can be icon-driven, known as a graphical user interface (GUI). GUIs are very common these days and with them, users can choose an icon, usually with a mouse, to......

...LS 305 Midterm Essay Questions Question 1: Describe at least three kinds of speech that are not protected speech under the First Amendment. Provide examples, and explain the impact of not having these types of speech protected under the First Amendment. The First Amendment protects advocacy of illegal action except when imminent action is intended and probable. Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. gave the example of, “falsely shouting fire in a theatre causing panic” (http://www.firstamendmentcenter.org/not-many-exceptions-to-free-speech-guarantee). This is not protected because it presents a clear and present danger that causes an immediate reaction that could cause physical harm or injury to others. Defamation, both written (libel) and spoken (slander), is not protected by the First Amendment. The qualifying factors to be considered defamation the communication must be: intentional, untrue, damaging to the reputation of that person, and directed to/at someone other than the person it is regarding (http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Defamation). Allegations of serious criminal actions or allegations of serious sexual misconduct are examples of defamation per se. The plaintiff does not have to prove damage to his/her character when defamation per se applies (http://www.abbottlaw.com/defamation.html). The lack of First Amendment protection is to avoid having reputations destroyed by malicious spoken or written statements of others. The First Amendment......

Jesper Wung-Sung - Stjerne Øl

...Stjerne øl Mere varme mellem mennesker. Novellens hovedperson drømmer om at lave en opfindelse, så mennesker på perroner verden over vil kunne mærke varmen nedefra og han selv ville få overrakt en medalje for at have fremmet verdenssundheden. ”Det føltes som om der blev sendt stød af kulde op igennem fliserne, gennem skosålerne, fodballerne, benene, og ud i kroppen som isnende. Det forekom at sådan havde det været på alle de perroner han havde stået på i sit liv.” Citatet er meget sigende for novellens budskab. Jesper Wung-sung er en af de nyere danske litterære forfattere, og har været med til at skrive manuskriptet til ungdomsfilmen ”To ryk og en aflevering”, som blev et stort hit. I 2008 og 2009 toppede Wung-Sungs ungdomsroman ”En-to- tre-NU!”, som var den mest læste ungdomsroman blandt de ældste klasser på landets skoler. Wung-Sung har i øvrigt modtaget priser helt tilbage fra 1998, hvor han modtog sin første pris, Bogforums debutantpris for ”To ryk og en aflevering”, og til 2011, hvor han modtog sin seneste pris fra Danmarks skolebibliotekarers børnebogs pris. Novellen er skrevet i datid med en 3.persons fortæller, som forholder sig objektivt. 3.persons fortælleren, fortæller novellen gennem hovedpersonens observationer og iagttagelser. Nogle gange får man som læser et subjektivt syn i novellen, da man af og til hører om hvad han tænker og føler. Jesper Wung-Sungs novelle ”Stjerne øl” befinder sig på grænsen mellem virkelighed og fantasi. Wung-Sung har valgt at......

Egyptian vs Persian vs Asyerian

...Egyptian vs. Persian vs. Assyrian Similarities and differences can bring two or more things together or make them separate or not anything at all. For example, the Egyptian, Persian, and Assyrian empires were similar in some ways and different in others, but they didn’t harm each other. The Egyptian, Persian and Assyrian empires are similar by their military, organization of government, and innovations. All three empires had a military. Although they were organized differently, they all consisted of the same things. Their military had officers and soldiers, and the best soldiers were the ones that led the troop into battle. Furthermore, the governments were organized by hierarchy, or from the highest ranked to the lower ranked officials. In all three empires, they had someone appointed as a king, governors and as “vice king”. In addition, the empires made some innovations; their innovations weren’t similar, but the fact that they made innovations makes them similar in some way. For instance, the Egyptians made mosaic glass, and practiced medicine and mummification. Plus the idea of coined money was spread by the Persians. Finally, the Assyrians were the most common empires that built sculptures, and painted stonework. Even though they weren’t similar with specific details, the three empires were similar. The Egyptian, Persian, and Assyrian empires are different by their religion and their type of government. The Egyptians were polytheistic, or that they believed in......

A Re-Assessment of Existing Ols Cross Country Evidence

...Is it true that Good Institutions Alleviate the Resource Curse? A Reassessment of Existing OLS Cross Country Evidence Malebogo Bakwena* Abstract The paper tests the hypothesis that the effect of resources on growth is conditional on the quality of institutions, by further building on Mehlum, Moene, and Torvik’s (2006b) influential work. Advances are made by re-testing the hypothesis, using: (a) a dataset of up to 53 countries over the period 1984-2003; and (b) a resource abundance indicator that focuses on non-renewable resources alone rather than the ones commonly used in the literature that include renewable resources, which are inappropriate. The empirical results of the paper confirm the hypothesis that resource rich economies are not destined to be cursed if they have good institutions.

Introduction Contrary to conventional theory, a growing body of evidence suggests that economies with abundant natural resources perform badly in terms of economic growth relative to their resource poor counterparts—the so-called resource curse hypothesis. However, this general hypothesis is not robust. It clearly fails to account for the differing experiences of resource abundant economies. For instance, the theory,......

...Epigentics vs Nature vs Nurture Santina Wood ENG101 Argosy University 03/4/2014 Instructor Benjamin Atkins Epigenetics -vs- Nature -vs- Nurture The nature vs nurture debate is still ongoing, and within this debate, the world of science and psychology are faced with two new questions. Today we find some researchers asking; "Is development predetermined at birth, by hereditary factors, or do experience and other environ -mental factors affect it?", and "Can the two work together in shaping human development and behavior?" Developmental psychologists still attempt to find the answers to these questions in order to discover the sources of growth in children's cognitive, language, and social skills. Most developmental psychologists believe that nature and nurture combine to influence biological factors playing a stronger role in some aspects, such as physical development, and environmental factors playing a stronger role in others, such as moral development. They are also beginning to acknowledge the role of a variable combination of both inborn factors and social experiences when explaining children's behavior. Scientists and Psychologists have a name for such an occurrence; epigenetics/epigenesis. In this essay, I will be presenting to my audience information on this highly, and sometimes heated debate, as well as the reasons as to why the belief of this dual influence called epigenetics is becoming more fact than theory.

...in conventional rotor side control scheme, the super-synchronous speed mode is achieved only above the rated synchronous speed and thus the operating speed range becomes limited. The proposed method in this paper explores a new control scheme where the machine can be theoretically operated at any speed (speed is limited only due to mechanical restrictions) and at the same time it will operate always in super-synchronous mode. Hence, all the analysis and control of the machine for this paper will be restricted to super-synchronous generating mode (mode (iii) in Fig. 1). latter, the stator circuit is represented as a controllable current source.

...for the process. Each task also holds the execution state, which can be running, interruptible, uninterruptible, stopped, zombie. Linux takes the user level threads for the tasks and can map them to kernel level processes with the same group ID. This offers resources sharing and security. Mac operating systems handle the execution of processes even differently than Windows and Linux. Mac has Grand Central Dispatch, which contains a pool of available threads. “Thread pools are automatically sized by the system to maximize the performance of the applications using GCD while minimizing the number of idle or competing threads” (Stallings 2012). Programs are intended to create blocks, which contain data and code on how to perform. “Windows vs. MAC vs. Linux OS will provide as much concurrency as possible based on the number of cores available and the thread capacity of the system” (Stallings, 2012). The development of these blocks is formatted in files and will run in concurrency using first-in-first-out processing. The merging process in the Grand Central Dispatch is well-organized in most cases compared to manually handling threads. Looking at UNIX/Linux it has one advantage over other operating systems on the market. It is less used than other operating systems. That fact alone improves the security of the operating system because the less hackers are trying to attack the system, the more secure it will be. Linux utilizes a firewall to block anyone trying to hack into the......

Their mission statement reads “The mission of Southwest Airlines is dedication to the highest quality of Customer Service delivered with a sense of warmth, friendliness, individual pride, and company spirit”. Additionally “We are committed to provide our Employees a stable work environment with equal opportunity for learning and personal growth. Creativity and innovation are encouraged for improving the effectiveness of Southwest Airlines. Above all, Employees will be provided the same concern, respect, and caring attitude within the organization that they are expected to share externally with every Southwest Customer”.

Nature vs. Nurture vs. Tofu

...Nature vs. Nurture vs. Tofu 2 Without conducting any research, I realize that I have never really thought about the subject of nature vs. nurture. By knowing a little of what the controversy is about, I am able to ask myself the right questions to complete my thoughts and come to a proper opinion. Usually I am an extremist by going with one side and not lingering with thoughts in the middle. However, this is a subject that does not deserve one end. By looking and observing those around me, many may notice that people share similar traits. Some traits are the result of nature and others are the result of nurture. There is no 50:50 ratio that is involved in the deciding factor of how much of each side contributes to the individuals we are today. Because biological factors and conformity are two different subjects, there is no scientific way to measure an accurate ratio of nature to nurture. Instead, I believe that each and every person is the product of 100 percent nature as well as 100 percent nurture. As my boyfriend and I are out to lunch, I throw my thoughts at him about nature vs. nurture and he makes me realize that tofu is a great example of both nature and nurture. He asks me how I am able to eat something so bland and tasteless. I tell him that tofu does have sort of a creamy nutty taste to it and is delicious plain uncooked. However, when tofu is cooked, it conforms to and picks up the flavor of the food or sauce that is being cooked......
