The Center for Professional and Continuing Education is a revenue generator for the University of the Pacific. There are some clear business objectives. It is imperative for the larger organization that the center is managed as a business. Dr. Shaw understands it. She not only establishes the way individuals should be treated, but the way goals should be pursued. She “unravels bureaucracy when it impedes actions…and create opportunities for victory” (Leadershipchallenge.com). Her connection with people propels them to achieve “small wins as they work toward larger objectives” (Leadershipchallenge.com).
According to the article published by Booz & Company, Walgreen, an American Pharmacy store chain implemented a huge structural and design change in order to sustain in the modern business environment. Observing competitive landscape change with new rivals and online players like Amazon and significant changes in healthcare sector, Walgreen decided to change its old expansion policy “Seven by 10 plan” (i.e. 7000 stores by 2010) to ‘improving the customer experience’ policy. In order to implement new strategy they had to move from centralization to decentralization, from tall structure to flatter structure, from authoritative leadership to engaged leadership (Orvis, M.2017).
Personal Business Philosophy The purpose of business, in addition to making money, is production. I believe that production is the purpose of business because it means the production or manufacturing from components or raw materials to produce something new. When you create a product from new materials, new products are created that may make it easier for society to benefit from. Imagine a world where we could only access the materials, tools, and resources that were in walking distance of our living area. I can only imagine that it was hard back in the 1800s for people to get the medicine they needed, the food they needed, or even clothes to wear. Henry Ford has a great opinion on the fact that many people are not fit to do every job, and he touches on the idea of people producing for an exchange of goods that they need. He said, “It is self – evident that a majority of people in the world are not mentally – even if they are physically – capable of making a good living. That is, they are not capable of furnishing with their own hands a sufficient quantity of the goods which this world needs to be able to exchange their unaided products for the goods which they need” (Henry Ford, p. 500 line 30).

New Capitalist Manifesto: Building a Better Business Course: GMGT 4010 (A02) Professor: Dr. Howard R. Harmatz Student: Raees Ali Student Number: 7746966 Umair Haque, a next-generation economic thinker, has published a thought-provoking “New Capitalist Manifesto: Building a Better Business.” The premise of the book is that capitalism as a system has run away with itself, but it needs not to be abandoned. The theoretical or conceptual framework from its birth (industrial era capitalism) just needs upgradation. New capitalism could be, what Haque calls “constructive capitalism.” According to author, Capitalism as it’s functioned for last few decades is morally bankrupt and, more importantly, no longer works. Capitalism needs to be reinvented. And, in its new shape, it will help power a new generation of growth – but in a sustainable and long-term manner. This book, as a manifesto, outlines what needs to be done to ensure that this transformation occurs.

Introduction Visionary Leaders are portrayed to “inspire others to move beyond their self-interests to what is best for the group or organization’ (Taylor, Cornelius, & Colvin, 2014, p 566). These leaders tend to see the big picture and highlight potential opportunities (Trautlein, 2013). All companies could find value in having at

A large part of being a good service provider is ensuring customer convenience. Study findings show that strong leadership systems focus on customers, motivate employees, and implement their customer service vision. They also focus great attention on gathering the information needed to track customer satisfaction, and employees overall performance. Customer service should be designed and delivered seamlessly from the customer's point of view. Customer-driven operations lead to success. Decentralized, uncoordinated customer service provision makes for a most frustrating experience for customers.
Wal-Mart has very low prices and has a friendly atmosphere in the United States. American’s seem to enjoy the personal attention that the employees of Wal-Mart offer. It is hard to understand why anyone would not like the personal attention. Google and YouTube is very popular in the United States, but has failed in the western world because of their American culture ideas and the unwillingness to broaden their understanding of different cultures. Not being able to adapt to different cultures in the western world has created the downfall of Wal-Mart and Google. Google and YouTube failed in Japan because they did not take into thought the culture and their belief to privacy, while Wal-Mart failed in Germany because of their strict policy of
It would have been good if this fundamental vision was in place right at the very beginning of the company’s formation. In the end it is the customers that make the company, so it makes sense to work towards satisfying this customer relationship. To become profitable and achieve market share are secondary objective that can be measured on a annual basis and overall company well being targets can be rewarded with incentives that link into the company’s performance as opposed to individual contribution to the company’s success.
