The letter I chose to analyze was written by Private Richard H. Adams Jr. a prisoner of war born April 21, 1842 in Altwood Marengo County, Alabama. Private Richard H. Adams served as an officer during the Civil War with the 5th Alabama Infantry Regiment, he originally enlisted in the service in May of 1861. Richard H. Adams Jr. served in many different campaigns during his time in the services in addition to a role which included Richard H. Adams as being staff officer for Gen, Wheeler until he was captured in Nashville, Tennessee in September of 1863. Richard H. Adams Jr. was a prisoner of war (between the years 1863 through June 1865) and would later in history be considered one of the immortal 600. The immortal 600 were prisoners of war who were sent to Morris Island in Charleston Harbor which was an area that was in direct line of fire from the Confederate guns of fort Sumter. He eventually survived the war and went back home, where he married Lottie Putman and spent his days as an engineer and postmaster for Radford, Virginia. Richard H. Adams died in Radford, Virginia in October 1896.
What remains of Richard H. Adams Jr. is 47 original letters dated from November 1863 to September 1866 all written by Richard H. Adams Jr. Including a manuscript dairy that he kept while serving the 5th Alabama Regiment in Virginia dated April 1862 - May 1862, transcriptions of two other diaries that were kept on which included a prison diary, a script of Wheelers raids which was written after war, a friendship book with fellow prisoners names, 2 pictures of Richard H.

Evaluation of International Teams

...Topic: Individuals seldom work in loneliness from other. Teams are a trait of all societal situations and roughly everyone in a society will be member of one or more groups. One might think that the formation of team is simply about choosing to work with some of your friends. However, professional and well-functioning team do not just structure out of blue, it take time to achieve the desired result and contribute to the attainment of organizational goals. In this paper we examine various aspect relating multi-cultural/multi-national teams. We will then focus our efforts on exploring various salient features of multi-national teams. We will critically evaluate the various benefits of multi-cultural teams and the various problems that are encounter by organization practicing international team concept. 2. What is an International team? According to Fink et al international teams are “implemented to constitute to the performance of an organization if the organization with its complex and sometimes rigid structure is not able to achieve this task” (Fink, Neyer, Klling, & Meierewert, 2004). Multi-national/multi-cultural teams are composed of people who belongs to different countries, regions, have different culture, norms, values, tradition, language who unite together in order to achieve a common objectives.

...that a delightful appetizer menu and all deserts made in house. However, with such amazing creativity, comes understandable limits. The entrée menu is usually bound to about 10 selections, not counting the specials. With no liquor license, patrons are encouraged to bring their own adult beverages. Depending on one’s point of view, BYOB can be either a positive or negative. The next criteria used for my evaluation was the atmosphere found at Serenity Café. As soon as you step inside the restaurant you cannot help but notice the relaxed atmosphere. It is not uncommon to see folks dressed in jeans and button-down shirts across from a table of diners attired in formal evening wear. Both of which is perfectly acceptable at this location. The front of the house is tastefully decorated with just the right amount of art and interesting items on the walls, with a warming paint scheme. But, to get a table at this place, one must secure a reservation in advance as there is seating for only about 90 persons. Finally, of course I had to consider price in the evaluation. The majority of the entrees are priced at $25 or less, with several items below $20, while most of the appetizers are $10 or less. Guests can save additional money by avoiding the normal grossly inflated wine list prices by bringing their own vino selections to the table. There is also a nice lunch menu offered with most items at or below $10. On the down side, there is the occasional $30 plus......

...A Critical evaluation of the impact that organisational culture on both internal corporate Communication and team dynamics: A Case Study Introduction In recent years, cutthroat demands on organisational operational effectiveness and competitive advantage have increasingly pushed managers to adopt skillful ways to strengthen and enhance efficient organisational functions. The effectiveness of an organisation’s employment of its resources as well as their tactical maneuvers must be related to the motivation and quality of the organizations work force (Pettinger, 2006). Carmarthen Building Supplies ltd is teaming with varying elements of communication problems, pre established organisation’s cultural environment and lack of sufficient team work. Given the f knowledge and experience that the new general manager, Gareth Jenkins, has on organisation and management, and its accompanying features on the importance of communication, culture and teamwork, he sets on a path to change the tide. Gareth Jenkins must confront a number of communication, cultural and team work challenges bedeviling the company at the moment. Underlying the influence of organisational culture on a firm’s communication and team dynamics is the fundamental leadership function. The function of a leader within the organisation is to steer the body towards realisation of a cooperative goal, but within a system of social authority and incentive framework (Schein, 2010).

Team Self-Evaluation Spectrum

...Group 4 - Team self-evaluation Spectrum I/ Context: In a perfect world, teams work perfectly together, difficulties are easily overcome, meetings run well and members feel confident. In the real world, teams gather individuals who express different opinions, expectations and goals. As a result teams’ first challenge is to find a cohesion between all these individuals. To create this cohesion, it was necessary to know who we were working with. So we decided to evaluate the members with the theory of Belbin. In this self-evaluation, we will explain how we managed to create this cohesion, see how we successfully managed our task repartition and what were our success and difficulties. II/ The profiles according to Belbin It is crucial to know and understand the people we are working with. As a result, we established the Belbin profiles and this is what we got: Melissa Philippon is the shaper. She is task-focused individual and do not hesitate to face challenges.

An effective process will provide the necessary needs for learning and improvements on how to be a manager. Wal-Mart training process provides opportunities for managers throughout their careers. The organization will first look at the reaction to do the process. Questions will be asked about how the process went and how the individuals feel about the training. Exploring females in management, it is important for the company to gather facts and get reactions on how the individual was treated and how the training process felt. “As an organization it is stated that the cost of employing women in management is far greater than the cost of employing men so it is important that the evaluation process is effective.”(Harvard Business Review, 2011) As an organization we will provide our managers with experiences involving walkthroughs to stores that they are familiar with to test effectiveness of the training. The organization will provide stores consistent with diversity so that a male or female will feel comfortable in their environment. The organization will also test some of the qualities learned in the training by putting individuals in hands on situation that involves what managers do every day in certain situations.
