Globalisation is the process by which each individual country and economy is converging into a larger global economy. Globalisation has many impacts both positive and negative. In recent decades globalisation has had strong impacts in China and thus is predicted to be one of the 4 largest economies by 2050(BRIC). Trade investment is a strong factor in the Chinese economy as it relies on trade to support it. China will import primary goods, manufacture them, and then it will export the goods back overseas. They are able to do this more efficiently than other countries because they have extremely cheap labour. Exports increased from US$ 10.89 billion in 1978 to US$ 561.4 in 2004 this a 5000%+ increase in trade. This massive increase can be contributed to the exporting of manufacturing to China. However in the current GFC, both exports and imports are down 25% in February 2009 from the same time in 2008.
Essentially, this is what we are speaking about when we refer to organizational performance and achievement of successful outcomes. (James, 2017)
In times of uncertainty and failure I believe that a transformational leader would inspire performance and creative behaviors in their employees to meet the emerging needs of their organization. I believe that the transformational leader would have the ability to motivate his or her employees and inspire them to trust and be loyal employees. Additionally, I think that a transformational leader would continue to maintain daily operations and continue to stimulate their employees to perform with confidence to achieve the goal and meet the standards of the organization.
Transformational leaders encourage group work, as they connect each follower’s identity and self to the project and collective identity of the corporation. They are role models for other staff and this inspires them and makes them
Contingency theory is one of the many theories that help to shape managerial practice, define the way that managers make decisions, and form solutions to problems. The intent of this paper will be to define what contingency theory is, identify the theorists that have helped shape the theory describe what areas of business and management it is used in. The paper will also set out to explain how contingency theory could be applied in real world applications.
First of all, every little detail is necessary for a job applicant. The interviewer has to select specific questions in order to find the best applicant for the job.
In this paper, I will conduct a unit transformational process activity using the five steps that are associated with it. First, I will attempt to convince you that my unit lacks Organizational/Structural Diversity. Then I will combine with it the Eight Steps for Transforming an Organization. Finally, I will explain how Transformational Leadership plays a significant role in the process. Now that I have established my talking points, next I will tackle the discovery process.
Shanghai, China blows away every other country throughout the world. The United States is seen as pretty much average across the boards and frankly cannot even compare Shanghai. Shanghai, China led the world as the highest scores in Math, Science, and Reading on the 2012 PISA test. Compared to the United States is just under a 100 points from the U.S. in math, science, and reading. In math Shanghai scored a 613, science score was 580, and lastly reading was a 570. The international average in math is 494, reading is 496, and science is 501. As said in a previous paragraphs and seen in the chart on page two the U.S. could learn a few things from a lot of other countries. Shanghai being at the top of the list clearly shows it is leading the world
All this is taking place against the backdrop of an inexorable longer term shift of power gravity from west to east, the growth of Brazil, Russia, India and China (the BRIC countries), which are in turn facing their own growth challenges, and the rise of new emerging economies. These macro-economic trends have a significant impact on the way in which businesses operate, the priorities they face, and the strategies they develop to be successful on a global platform.
I was considered a “Chinese-American” since birth and my knowledge of my heritage is minuscule. I decided to pick Shanghai as my host country for this reason and by doing so I will be able to explore more of my parents’ origin or the culture I am raised by. By learning more about the culture I’m raised by, I’ll gain more insight as to why my parents practice certain traditions which I deemed as futile. For instance, I never knew why they prayed to an “omniscient being” where there’s no proof of existence and I question some of their actions sometimes. Despite that, there are certain constituents of these traditions which I enjoy and they’ll most likely be in Shanghai as well. Also, being able to experience this summer abroad program is significant
A role of woman and their fashion shows Chinese culture in the past. Another aspect of life in Old Shanghai is the fashion. The female characters, as well as their fashion style, are focal points of the story. Mrs. Mai, as well as the other female characters in the story, represents the “new women” of the modern city as portrayed. For instance, after a detailed account of the women’s clothing style at the Mahjong table, the narrative continues as the reader is briefly given the historical background. The author illustrates that what kind of accessories Wang Jiazhi wear, as well as her appearance, all symbolize her occupation; she works as a smuggler and her clothes indicate that. The story shows that fashion played a significant role in Chinese
The Americans treat conception of self on self-reliance and self promotion is more accepted as they value freedom from external interference, while for the Chinese the conception of self is viewed from a group perspective and they value self modesty as well.
Transformational leaders are able to inspire employees to work towards a common goal by changing their expectations, motivation and perception of why they are doing the work. Transformational leaders cultivate a commitment from their employees, which encourages them to put aside self-interest to work
4. Transformational leaderships are more effective because they are more creative but also because they encourage those who follow them to be creative too. Companies with transformational leaders, there is greater decentralization of responsibility, managers have more propensity to take risk and compensation plan are geared towards long term results. Using this strategy, Jung tried to recover Avon from crisis. She took risk by trimming 7 layers of management, increase the advertisement budget by 83%, build more communication with customers by developing the marketing and advertising department in Avon. By doing so, she able to increase Avon’s sales growth in 2006.
