Whether a light bulb needs to be changed, a critical audio or visual component shorts out, or the HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning) system goes out, proper maintenance could be the factor that saves or destroys an event before it even begins. Proper maintenance can not only save the organization from unscheduled downtime but it can also prevent unwarranted cost. For example: if a vehicle doesn’t have its oil regularly serviced, it could cause the vehicles engine to fail possibly causing thousands of dollars of damage. The same thing can be said when it comes to a facility and its maintenance.
Mission orders may be understood by the leader’s subordinates, however poor training and development amongst other practices may hinder the execution of the commander’s intent. Everything starts with training. Rehearsals are key in knowing what to do and how to react when the time comes. The team may know what to do through the orders, however they will not know how to perform tasks if
What might have been the setback we previously faced in making decisive, clear or sound effective decisions? Was it a defect in how Commanders and Leaders led units or troops, or perhaps the philosophy in which we chose to command and control every aspect of the battlefield? What does it mean to recognize or comprehend the art of Command and the science of Control? The six principles of mission command are key in developing a cohesive team that will support all aspects of the mission. Asking “why” is now encouraged when it pertains to certain situations or missions. Understanding the purpose of why a course of action or desired outcome is necessary, leads to mission success and a cohesive unit with thinking leaders. Thinking clearly usually isn’t an issue for most leaders, but position an individual in a situation of extreme stress or complexity, then there might be a reason to be concerned. Through
The purpose of normalization is to create a stable set of relations is representative of the operations of an enterprise. By doing this we are able to reduce redundancy to save space and avoid inconsistencies in data. It also ensures that the design is free of certain updates, insertions, and deletion anomalies (Ricardo, 2012). With normalization as with most anything else there are advantages and disadvantages. The advantages of normalization are: ACID, which stands for atomicity, consistency, isolation, and durability. Atomicity means the transaction is a single unit. Either the entire set of actions is carried out or is not.

The chain of command is responsible to each Navy member for solving work-related problems. When a person’s immediate senior is unable to resolve a problem , the next senior in the chain of command tries to solve the problem. If the senior at that level of command is unable to resolve the problem, it then goes to the next level in the chain of command. The problem continues to be referred to each level in the chain of command until it is resolved. You must always use the chain of command when seeking solutions to work-related problems.
Senior leaders must be involved in the execution of ORF activities, ensuring ORF approvals at the GO/SES level will validate the intent for personal involvement of the commanding general, as outlined in AR 37-47. The high visibility and sensitive nature of ORF activities demand senior leader scrutiny and involvement to achieve
The historical process of creating and implementation of the Military Decision Making Process has changed significantly since World War I. The US Army did not have a published staff doctrine or guidance to assist commanders in the decision making process. The Regulations for Field Maneuvers (1910), did not provide staff guidance. In 1914, the field service regulation (FSR) identified the need for decision making processes. The Staff Officer Field Manual (1932), complied principles, data, and information that was intended to guide the operations of staff of all units and territorial commands. The Staff Officer Field Manual (1932), was a detailed manual that explained staff functions and more complete commander estimates of implementation time.
As you understand that Tote Board funding is not enough to offset the cost of delivering GSS sessions. Hence, we have to charge 200 participants at an average fee of $300 per participant. Assumptions were made that Care and Share will not fund the unfunded portion of GSS fees. However, we have discussed with Soon Meng who manages Care and Share funding at NCSS. Soon Meng suggested that we can put a proposal to our NCSS EXCO for approval .

Surysekar, et. al began by gathering information regarding restricted donations. Often, NFP’s expand their activities beyond the organization’s mission and skill set. This can lead to the misuse of funds as well as fraud. Donors impose restrictions to ensure that the money is used for activities that they value while simultaneously meeting the goals of the organization (64). Donors can impose restrictions such as the following: 1) the organization may only use the interest from the donation to meet the goals of the NFP or 2) the donation may only be used for a particular purpose or program. However, restricted donations may inhibit a NFP’s ability to grow (65).
