Heidi Roizen MBUS 803 – Strategy I – Dr. Tina Dacin Q.1 - Using the assigned readings, provide an analysis of Roizen’s network. What kinds of networks does Roizen build? What do they look like? Heidi Roizen has built herself a very strong rainmaker network (Exhibit 1). This type of network combines the clique network and the entrepreneurial (constellation) network to create a network optimized for performance impact (Dacin). A clique network is built based on similarities such as expertise or proximity. Clique networks (Exhibit 1 – coloured nodes) are beneficial for finding like-minded individuals but don’t scale well across job functions and industries. The entrepreneurial network (Exhibit 1 – empty nodes) is built based on fostering …show more content…
Having a large network as well as holding the venture capitalist responsibilities puts Heidi in a position where there is the potential for conflicts of interest to arise. This could happen through funding a member of her network or placing a member of her network in a Softbank funded venture. Even if she doesn’t take any of these actions for pure personal gain they can be perceived that way should a situation sour. This could undermine the credibility factor that plays a large role in holding her network together despite its dependence on weak ties (Pfeffer). Q.3 – What steps did Roizen take to develop her network? To maintain it? Heidi began developing her network as soon she left school. With no reputation she first had to build an emotional connection with the hiring manager at Tandem to get in the door. Effective persuaders have a strong sense of their audience’s emotional state and they adjust their tone accordingly (Conger). Heidi did that in hitting it off with the hiring manager and landing the job. She then shifted her attention to making important relationships work (Pfeffer) by finding common ground with the CEO in her role as a disseminator of information at Tandem. This started her pattern of building reciprocal relationships whereby the other party felt obligated to repay her for assisting them in some matter (Cialdini)

On July 29, 1984 Jennifer Thompson, a white woman was brutally raped by a black male with a knife to her throat. The black male broke into her apartment while she was asleep. Jennifer Thompson woke up to the stranger when he had begun to attack her. When she first saw her attacker, she offered to give him her car and money, but he declined that’s when she realized he wasn’t there to rob her but to rape her. During the time Jennifer Thompson was being raped, she tried to remember the characteristics of the black male so that later she could identify him to the police. Jennifer Thompson was able to escape out of the back the door of her apartment and she ran to her neighbors home which they called the police. That same night the black male raped
Chung has been operating under what he feels are the established norms for his culture. Ted's relationship with the Taiwanese client exhibits the Chinese management principles of paternalism, particularism, and insecurity. The patron-client relationship is based in a sense of mutual obligation, where the client is expected to defer to Ted's expertise and Ted is expected to trade the account responsibly. (Moorhouse, 2005) Ted also used social networking to establish himself in the community which is expected in the Chinese culture. By attending events Ted increases his “visibility and prestige” which contributes to the face that is needed to be considered a trustworthy business partner
The case of Karen Leary illustrates the implications cultural conflict can have on business organizations and office culture. A common mistake managers make is undermining the power of cultural constraints at the organizational level. After six years as a financial consultant at Merrill Lynch, Karen Leary was promoted to general manager at the Elmville branch in Chicago. Leary wanted to achieve success at the branch office by building high-producing, successful group of professionals who work together to provide clients with complete service in meeting long-term financial goals.

The social networks context focuses on building social relationships and bonds that promote trust and not opportunism. Instead of taking advantage of people as an entrepreneur, success comes as a result of keeping faith with the people. Under the life course context, it is believed that the experiences of people could influence their thought and action so they want to do something meaningful with their lives. The ethnic identification
I would go for a targeted communication strategy to each of the different stakeholders. The first one will be to Jessica’s parents to re-explain the true nature of these unfortunate circumstances. I would explain to them the entire process and where we went wrong and apologize. I would also convey that the unfortunate circumstances were not specifically targeted at them but it was a bad lapse in the entire process and while we can help at this particular time with your daughter, we will reevaluate the entire process to ensure that nothing like that ever happens again. I would also inform them that from now on, to reflect the changing demographics in the area the hospital covers, the hospital will be offering language classes to all their staff to better communicate with people from different social and cultural
The crime scene is actually in two places because it starts at the resident of the Van Dam’s which is where the initial crime occurred in the room of Danielle van Dam. From this point officer’s should be able to gather some evidence of the type of crime that happened and start to collect all of the apparent evidence. To see if anything was left behind to see if a comparison can be made as to who have all been at the Van Dam residence to analyze and question all to find who could or would want to kidnap Danielle. The second crime scene in question is the home of the Van Dam’s neighbor David Westerfield because it was discovered that he was the main suspect of the kidnapping of Danielle van Dam. There was some of Danielle’s DNA at the home of Mr. Westerfield in which it was stated that she was being held there after she was abducted from her home. Once the police were called by the parents of Danielle when they discovered that she was missing. The next crime scene is the motor home of David Westerfield was stocked with supplies on Saturday morning when he left his home minutes after Brenda Danielle’s mother called the police to report her daughter missing. The motor home became the main crime scene because it yields the most evidence and it is where the crime of kidnapping and murder occurred just from the trace evidence that was left behind by the victim such as blood stains, fingerprints and hair
Megan Kanka and several other children have been the reason for the safety of children around this country. I know that you’re wondering in what way this person contributed to the safety of other children. Well Megan Kanko was a 7 years old child who was next door from a previously charged pedophile in Hamilton Township, New Jersey. The difference between then and now is that in the past there were no laws stating that pedophiles had to inform those who lived near them that they were there, of their past convictions, or even some type of registration available. This was the case of Megan Kanka’s offender, Jesse Timmendequas. His record consisted of attempted aggravated sexual assault of a 5-year-old girl in Piscataway, New Jersey, in 1979. He had pleaded guilty to the charges for attempted aggravated sexual assault. He was given a suspended sentence, but he failed to go to counseling, so he was forced to spend nine months at the Middlesex Adult Correctional Center. In 1981, he again pleaded guilty in regards to the sexual assault of a seven-year-old girl and was imprisoned, at Avenel, for six years. He’s an example of a recidivist who was controlled and
At 5am Officer Singh called SA Lyn Brumaire who was on duty at Coral Tower because Jordan Horvat was worried a resident of 902, Stephanie Lee, was missing. Upon keying into the room with PSO Tabiri, the resident in questions, Stephanie Lee was found to be missing from her apt. Officer Tabiri then decided to take a statement from SA and resident Macayla Caso. Ms. Horvat was also not present in the room. Ms. Caso was under the assumption that Ms. Horvat had gone home since she was packing earlier in the day and the sheets were stripped off her bed.
The underlying issues in both cases are racial discrimination. For Cheryl Boulden in the affirmative action case the issue is being “an African American woman among the good ol’ boys in Indiana.” She was recruited because of race and her permanent handicap was seen as an asset for a diversity program lacking any. Yet these qualities made her a target of racism. Susan Finn’s ethnic discrimination presents a dilemma of how to deal with a contract physician’s abusive behavior “toward Hispanics and female staff as well as patients” (Reeves, 2006, p. 79). While the issues of racial and gender discrimination is not unusual, the failure of these agencies to address multiple complaints is.
Roizen engaged her existing networks of friends (which she had likely developed through the Proximity Principle for network building) to obtain a contact for a desired job of newsletter editor at Tandem (Class Slides). Further, she landed the job thanks to the Self-Similarity Principle (Class Slides), by hitting it off with the manager in charge of hiring.
