Postmodernism

write a 2-3 page paper discussing the central assumptions of the postmodern worldview. What is postmodernism? How does it effect the way people live? Is it anti-Christian, or are there ways in which it might be an ally to Christian thought? This paper is informal, meaning that it does not require additional sources, and does not require formal language.

Implementation Of Global Strategies

Your team attends a trade conference on the subject of globalization. They have attended several seminars both advocating and dismissing implementing a global strategy. You return to the office and share some of what you have learned with the team.

“Globalization is a very interesting topic and can get very heated,” you explain. “There are some countries and companies who are fiercely loyal to their homes and would not consider going global. Others see it as a benefit to the company and their customers. Some people here in the states believe that American-made is best because we are contributing to our home country. But, is it? Is it always best to stay domestic? How does this impact pricing? Are you truly helping?”

As your team ponders these questions, you start to think about your position on the topic. Complete the following:

  • Are you for or against globalization?
  • Is your recommendation for your company to go global? Why or why not?
  • How does globalization impact the marketplace as a whole?
  • Has your opinion changed from the beginning of the course to now?

Strategic Goal Controlling And Executive Summary

Company: Intel

Please review attachments and tie them into this executive summary

As you’ve learned this week, the control process is essential to the achievement of goals. It allows a business to track their progress, make adjustments, and stay on schedule for what they’re trying to achieve. Your chosen goal from the strategic management project needs these same types of controls. This course project assignment will task you with creating a detailed control process for that goal. Think through all of the departments that might be involved in the completion of the goals and how they’ll need to be tracked. The course content from this week can be very useful in providing details on strategies and ideas for control processes. Some additional research will also prove useful. This is part 1 of this week’s assignment and should be at least two pages in length and complete the following:

  • Identify      four separate strategies that you will use to control your strategic goal.
  • For      each strategy:
    • Identify       which aspect or metric of the goal they’re controlling.
    • Explain       the reasoning and value behind the control choice.
    • Identify       the control as feed forward, concurrent, or feedback.

As an example, if my goal is to “decrease the amount of defective parts made on my assembly line by 5%”, I could control it through regular maintenance checks (feed forward), thorough employee training on the machines (feed forward), and a software system that monitors production while it’s happening and can print off detailed reports after work is completed (concurrent and feedback). You will need to go into much more detail on the structure, process, and purpose of your control methods, but this should give you a good idea of how to complete this assignment. Really think through how you’ll keep up to speed with company progress on your strategic management goal.

Before you submit the final version of your Strategic Management Plan, the last piece you need to create is an Executive Summary. This is part 2 of this week’s assignment and should be the first page in the final version of your plan next week. It’s meant to be something that an executive could quickly read in order to get a basic understanding of the overall strategic management plan. Due to its purpose, the executive summary should be a thorough and concise summary clearly depicting the content of the plan. Give an overview of the goal you’re trying to accomplish, any major findings in your research, the reasoning behind the goal, and any major obstacles you foresee. It should be treated as a document ready to be turned into an executive director, board of advisors, investor, etc. Therefore, format and style (presentation) is very important.
