One was American, Winlow Frederick Taylor, and developed the scientific management school called, worried about increasing the efficiency of the industry through, initially, the rationalization of work operator. The other was a European, Henri Fayol, and developed the so-called classical theory concerned to increase the efficiency of your company through your organization and the application of general principles of science-based management. Although they were not communicated with each other and have parties of different views and even opposite, the truth is that their ideas are the basis of so-called traditional classical approach of the administration, which dominated postulates about the first four decades of this century the administrative landscape of organizations. So in a general way, the classical approach of management guidelines can be split into two quite different and somewhat opposite each other, but complementary with relative consistency: 1 .- On the one hand, the school of scientific management, developed in the United States, from the......

...It is a powerful tool to be able to be seen and not heard--but still get the message across. Since its humble beginnings, fashion has oftentimes just existed, but in the past century, it has existed as a form of expression, art, and liberation   Now, women are still being influenced and challenged by the media and their peer, but slowly, more and more women are standing up for themselves. Before the early to mid 1800's, women were forced to squeeze into corsets made of whalebone, steel or buckram.   It gave them the figure eight profile which resulted on a number of health problems, including their organs and body to become deformed.   Over the corsets, women wore heavy layers of petticoats despite the weather.   (Small Business Administration 3) Dresses emphasized the bust and hips, attempting to make women look very voluptuous. With the spread of commercialism, hundreds of new beauty products were introduced.   These ever-popular restricting fashions were later outdated. Lucretia Mott, Stanton and many more reformers started a Women's Rights Convention in Seneca Falls that dealt with women receiving further rights.   Anthony collaborated with Stanton to write From Address to the New York State Legislature, 1860.   In this speech, Stanton delivered many of her powerful ethics to the State Legislature.   She felt that women should have the right to have a divorce and generally more rights for women.   Through her well-educated, formal speech she gained respect......

...Since the time of Max Weber and his sociological research on bureaucracy during the Pre-World War I era, public administration has played a major role in the ever shifting relationship between the individual and the community. This altered our essential concepts of the public and private monarchy within social life during the twentieth century. In the twenty-first century, the contemporary liberal democratic impulse towards both an unfettered individualism and a strong restricted civic community or culture has developed major challenges to Weber’s ‘modern’ approach to public administration. From former U.S. President Bill Clinton’s declaration that “the era of big government is over” in 1995, to recent proclamations within international theories of a new world order cemented by a ‘global’ civil society, ‘bureaucracy’, as the foundation of the contemporary nation-state, has been challenged on a theoretical and practical level. It is from this exemplar that democratic administration theory has largely emerged. Responding to the new challenges of traditional bureaucracy and their subsequent ‘hollowing out of the State’ as an effective institution, democratic administration theory has attempted to construct a new basis of administrative rule in which both the ‘expert’ and ‘client’ becomes leveled in their discourse through democratic and even radical reform of the administrative process itself. This newfound principle of political rule is in stark contrast to Max......

...slip and falls, sprain or strains, and fire safety hazards. Walmart is using better suppliers when it comes the safety of their food products. Walmart requires that their food suppliers be certified by safety programs under the umbrella of the Global Food Safety Initiative. To help with its food safety and security risk Wal-Mart takes that extra mile ensuring that their food is harmonized and leading-edge food safety standards throughout the entire food production chain ("Food and Safety", 2012). Walmart has trained employees to handle cold and hot foods correctly. To ensure that all food products bought and sold by Wal-Mart is handled, stored, cooked, and properly packaged. Wal-Mart uses guidelines given from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration along with GFSI standards. Second, Walmart realizes that a security plan is necessary in trying to security its employees, customers, and the facility. This is why they have installed safety and security technology inside and outside their stores. Walmart stores have installed closed circuit camera systems, off-duty police officers, security monitors, and security scanners at each door entrance. Another safety and security risk that effects Walmart is slip and falls. In the retail industry workers have accessibility to parts or areas of the store that customers do not. Even the areas where customers have access need to be cautious concerning slips and falls. Slip and falls are common in retails for employees and customers.......

...bureaucracy and politics have proved to be inseparable and bureaucrats have proved to have remained political. Van Riper 1984, asserted that “the field of administration is a field of business. It is removed from the hurry and strife of politics,” Dwight Waldo states that “administration should not be driven by partisan patronage and electoral politics” This stands to mean that, as a business field, it should act business like, which involves impartiality and efficiency .This aspect can be paralleled to the ministry of education. Even though the bureaucrats are stationed in Harare, one can see that the same education received in Harare and that received in Binga is the same, regardless of the difference in ethical groups and maybe political affiliations. The ministry recently distributed books fairly around the country in every school. This shows high professionalism that is impartial, effective, efficient and responsive, stimulated by political neutrality. Weber’s ideal bureaucracy is based on the principle of rules and regulations governing an organization. These rules have to be followed to ensure efficiency, fairness and responsiveness .An example is the case alleged, which is, Minister Ignatius Chombo’s dismissal of the town councilors because of their failure to conform to the rules and regulations of public administration as they were now engaging in corruption and favoritism in allocating stands especially, for those of the same political parties as theirs......

...1 Social Capital and Facebook Groups' Members Knowledge Sharing Behavior Manal ElKordy Assistant Professor Business Administration Department Faculty of Commerce Alexandria University Alexandria, Egypt melkordy@hotmail.com Abstract The main challenge of any virtual community is the supply of enough content through the active sharing of knowledge among community members. This paper integrates the factors of social capital theory; namely, social ties, knowledge self-efficacy, fairness, identification, and openness; with individual motivations to share knowledge; namely, reputation, and enjoy helping; to explain why people share their knowledge on Facebook groups. The models' efficacy was tested using online survey of 237 Facebook groups' members. The model explained 34% of the variance in knowledge sharing behavior where knowledge self efficacy, identification with group, and perceived group openness were found to positively influence knowledge sharing behavior. Contrary to expectations, social ties, perceived group fairness, and individual motivators showed no significant influence on knowledge sharing behavior. Theoretical and practical implications of the results are discussed. Keywords: Social capital, individual motivations, knowledge sharing behavior, Facebook Groups, virtual communities, Egypt. 2 1. Introduction The widespread of internet access has fuelled the growth of virtual communities where more people are sharing their knowledge, experiences, and......

...Situation Analysis: John bailey left a major department store chain where he worked as the hardware department manager to open his own office supply store. By the year 1986, the firm, Bailey’s office supply, had become a large and well-known establishment in Toronto with three outlets. The firm carried a very extensive line of all basic office supplies, typewriters, and adding machines, and a limited line of office furniture. In 1996, john bailey’s son Marty was finishing college in business administration and decided to join his father in the business. Marty joined Bailey’s as assistant sales manager with the understanding that he would be given the job of sales manager on the retirement of Kenneth harker. At the same time Marty’s brother and sister, along with Marty, were placed board of directors for Bailey’s. During the late 1980s, both baileys observed the phenomenal growth and development of the high technology firms that occupied the golden triage aria in and around Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal. This boom also signaled the introduction of many strong competitors for Bailey’s. It was tempting for the baileys to invest in newly created firms. John bailey’s, however, was fairly conservative, and having built the business to a success was now looking forward to enjoying the fruit of his hard work. He still retained controlling interest in the business and was opposed to making any outside investments. On the other hand, Marty felt strongly that by......
