Otis Case

...Summary of the case Otis Elevator was founded by Elisha Graves Otis, the inventor of the safety-brake elevator, in 1853. The main business of Otis was to design, manufacture, install and provide service for elevators and relevant products such as moving walkways and escalators. The market was very competitive in the elevator industry, and Otis investigated that customer cancelled maintenance agreements due to dissatisfaction for service quality rather than product quality. In order to increase its market share and become the well-known leader in service excellence among all companies worldwide, the goal of Otis was to differentiate itself from other companies through logistics and service. Otis’s objectives were 1. To improve innovation, quality, cost and speed during the continuous transformation process and; 2. To move Otis core business from product and service management to customer solution management, and in the end to logistics and information management. Using a single finance and manufacturing system enabled Otis to add value to its entire supply chain. Below, two main transformation waves shown the progress of changes from the manufacturing company toward a total solution company to customers by Otis. Firstly, Otis introduced OTISLINE and REM, which facilitated the company to increase the efficiency of customer service and customer satisfaction. OTISLINE was a 24 hour customer service center, which produced excess callback reports to improve......

...The inclusion of a brief summary (‘Executive Summary’) is standard reporting practice and is meant to act as a guide to the contents of the report and to highlight major conclusions and recommendations. The Executive Summary derives its name from the practice of providing the executives of an organisation, that is, those responsible for making decisions and taking appropriate action, with a concise outline of the major points in a report to save them time. The detail can be pursued in more depth later by a complete reading of the report. The structure of the Executive Summary should follow the structure of the report and include brief statements on the following:  definition of the problem  aims and objectives  methods/data sources  key findings  conclusions  any recommendations for action. The Executive Summary should be brief and succinct, and may use point form to achieve this. As a rule-of-thumb, allow one page for every 5,000 words up to a maximum of five pages, and using headings in longer Executive Summaries. The inclusion of an Executive Summary is not a substitute for discussion/exposition in the full report.

John Lennon

...To start with I’ll talk about John Lennon as a member of the Beatles. Then I’ll move on to his solo career, his political and peace activism and after getting the general idea of his work I would like us to have a look on his influence upon his generation and maybe ours too. John Lennon became famous as a member and founder of the widely known band: The Beatles. Together with Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they managed to become the most commercially successful band of the 20th century. During the 1960s, there was even a term used to describe their fans’ intense frenzy towards them: The Beatlemania (photos). All members contributed to the band. But at the time, Paul overshadowed the rest of the members. According to the fans, Paul was the cute one, Ringo was the funny one, George was the quite one and finally John was the intelligent one. The Beatles achieved mainstream success in the UK during the beginning of 1963 and in 1965 they received recognition from the British Establishment when they were appointed Members of the Order of the British Empire in the Queen's Birthday Honours. The USA VS John Lennon: By that time John and the rest of the Beatles had already become idols due to their musical geniuses. But being an idol is not only being adored but also being hated by people. I don’t think is possible for any idol to only be adored. When your face, your ideology is exposed to the world you are vulnerable to criticism, therefore to love but also......

...Otis Elevator: Accelerating Business Transformation with IT At Harvard the only thing considered duller, safer, and less adventurous than working for a bank was working for some old-line can't-miss industrial firm like Otis Elevator, which only needed caretakers. —Tom Wolfe, A Man in Full (New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1998), p. 31 At the northeast corner of 20th Street is the turreted red-brick Victorian Apartment house . . . the first cooperative apartment house in New York City. Peek into the luxurious lobby! The foyer is adorned with stained glass and Minton tiles, and the building is equipped with Otis hydraulic elevators installed in 1883, and among the oldest of their kind still in service. —Gerard R.

Social Psychology and Multicultural Psychology Report

...Social psychology is the scientific study of the way individuals think, feel, and behave in a social context. Social psychology often emphasizes the power of the situation in affecting people. Social psychology can be distinguished from other disciplines, including sociology, clinical psychology, personality psychology, and cognitive psychology; however, social psychology overlaps with each of these disciplines as well. Social psychology may at first appear to be common sense, but common sense often makes contradictory claims, and many of the findings in social psychology would not be predicted by common sense. A wide range of research methods are used in psychology. These methods vary by the sources of information that are drawn on, how that information is sampled, and the types of instruments that are used in data collection. Methods also vary by whether they collect qualitative data, quantitative data or both. Qualitative psychological research is where the research findings are not arrived at by statistical or other quantitative procedures. Quantitative psychological research is where the research findings result from mathematical modeling and statistical estimation or statistical inference. Since qualitative information can be handled as such statistically, the distinction relates to method, rather than the topic studied. There are three main types of psychological research: 1. Correlational research In statistics, dependence is any statistical relationship......

Psychology Report on the Stroop Effect

...Psychological report on the Stroop effect By Thomas Silk Abstract The aim of this experiment is to study autonomic processes by replicating the previously carried out Stroop effect by using numbers. My hypothesis was that participants will be slower to properly identify the colour of ink when the ink used to produce colour names different from the ink. That is, observers were slower to identify red ink when it spelled the word blue. A number of 20 random participants aged in between 17-18 were recruited to participate in this experiment. Participants were presented with one condition for 10 participants and a second for the other 10.The first condition had the words of colours and were printed in a different colour ink, and the second condition the words were printed in the corresponding colour. Based on the results, participants took a considerably longer time to say the number of number in the incongruent condition than in the congruent condition. This corresponds to the earlier research carried out by Stroop. Therefore, it can be said that the powerfully autonomic nature of reading words is as same as reading numbers, as it is such a well-learned automatic activity it does interfere with the task. Introduction When you first learned to tie shoelaces you needed to carefully think through each step of the process. Now, you probably do not even seem to think about the steps, but simply initiate a series of movements that seem to proceed without any further influence. When a...

... COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY WHAT EFFECTS DOES ACOHOL BINGE DRINKING HAVE ON PROSPECTIVE MEMORY? SARAH HILL P4042678 Dr Janice Bartholomew Abstract This study aims to examine and investigate what effects alcohol binge drinking and non-binge drinking has on prospective memory. Introduction One of the most widely used drugs in the world is the alcohol. It has been shown to play a detrimental role within society and on an individuals health. According to the NHS, excessive alcohol use can increase the risk of having a heart attack and also cause health problems related to the liver, fertility and high blood pressure (NHS, 2014). Excessive alcohol use can also have an impact on mental health and abusing alcohol can cause psychological traits such as impulsiveness and low self-esteem (‘Understanding alcohol use disorders and their treatment’, n.d.). In 2002 as study was conducted to measure memory deficits of chronic alcohol use and the results make clear that chronic heavy alcohol users outline more impairments within prospective memory (Heffernan, 2002). Prospective memory (PM) is “the cognitive function we use for formulating plans and promises, for retaining them, and for re-collecting them subsequently either at the right time or on the occurrence of appropriate cues” (Graf, 2012, pp. 7-8). Memories such as realising that you need to take medicine before bedtime or remembering to pick up a birthday present for a loved one. It's important to fundamentally......

...joint venture between Otis Elevator Company, CITIC and TEC, and some changes I think may be necessary in the Joint Venture proposal. Exhibit A summarizes the current business overview of Otis and its competitors, which is important to understand the context of the JV and how will a JV in China would be helpful for Otis’s market position. I think this is a good time for Otis to enter the Chinese market. Otis entered China earlier in 1930, and left the country in 1951 due to political instability of the country. A quick timeline of China’s political evolution is highlighted in Exhibit B. The conditions persistent in the country in 1951 are very different from the present conditions in 1983. China has experienced immense growth in all sectors, and the construction industry is booming due to modernization efforts. Even after the death of Deng, I think his successors would encourage foreign investments because all these effort are producing good results in terms of GDP growth, exports, and technological know-how (Exhibits 3, 4 and 5 of the case) for China. In addition to all these, China-Schindler joint venture has proved very successful. This strengthening position of Schindler poses a threat to the market share of Otis. Other smaller players, such as Hitachi, are also entering into agreements with Chinese elevator companies. Also, the JV proposal is for Tianjin, the third largest Chinese city which is also emerging as a major exports hub. This gives Otis an excellent......

Health Psychology Committee Report

...HCA Health Psychology Committee Report Beth Lowery HCA 250 The Health Psychology Committee is committed to enhance the health of patients and to assist patients in obtaining the shortest hospital stay, while improving the hospital's performance with respect to following the appropriate protocols and regimens. To that end, the Committee has established a new Division of Psychiatry, which is staffed by five specialists who are responsible for addressing specific interests of a wide-ranging population and assisting the hospital in treating the "whole" patient. The committee has sought to address a key issue facing individuals who are facing a hospital stay – that is, an overriding fear of hospitals. According to the Child Development Institute (2008), one of the major fears faced by adults and children is that of hospitals. This fear often manifests itself in stress, which can make the illnesses or ailments of the patient worse. Stress impacts the response of the immune system to the physical systems of the body, and psychological interventions can assist the patient in developing coping methods to address these stressors (Sarafino, 2006). The committee's hope is that integration of psychology and health care will reduce the stresses on the patient, enhance their health, increase compliance by the patient with treatment programs, and shorten their hospital stays. Additionally, the patient will be provided with coping skills that will help them deal with their......
