The Goal

...Here are the principles behind the dramatic turnaround story in The Goal, in 885 words. Ready? Start counting now: The goal of a manufacturing organization is to make money. Jonah poses this as a question: "What is the goal?" and Rogo actually struggles with it for a day or two, but any manager or executive that can't answer that question without hesitation should be fired without hesitation. But then again, the goal isn't clear to everyone. One of the characters in the book, an accountant, responds to an offhand comment about the goal with a confused "The goal? You mean our objectives for the month?" That's sure to strike a chord with a lot of readers. At an operational level, measure your success toward the goal with these three metrics: Throughput - The rate at which the system generates money through sales. Inventory - The money that the system has invested in purchasing things which it intends to sell. Operational expense - The money the system spends in order to turn inventory into throughput. You could rephrase it this way - and someone does, a bit later in the book: Throughput - Goods out; the money coming in. Inventory - Materials in; the money currently inside the system. Operational expense - Effort in; the money going out. Obviously, your job is to minimize expense and inventory and maximize throughput. Adjust the flow of product to match demand. In particular, don't trim capacity to match demand. It's a standard cost-cutting......

Goals

...Goals and Objectives are part of the six fundamental policy elements that are essential to the development of all social policies. Goals work together but have different functions in this process. Somethings to consider with them are: if the goals and objectives are long term, short term, manifest, latent, and how to analyze the goals and objectives. When considering Unites States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), their goals and objectives you could begin to analyze what their mission is, as this should help to see what the purpose is of the program. They offer several assistance programs related to housing and other related needs; one of their grants is the homeless assistance, which offers help to individuals whom are homeless or a risk of becoming homeless, which can include emergency shelter, food, counseling, and even job training. There are four steps that can help to locating the organizations goals and objectives: locate the enabling legislation, locate legislative history, locate staff and committee studies and reports, and check other official sources or handbooks. (Chambers, 2005) Not all goals and objectives are long term, some are short term; this will vary with each social program. The length of time for specific goals and objectives could be determined by the funding of the program or by the social problem itself. There are also different types of goals, like manifest and latent. The definition of manifest is to make evident by......

The Goal

...Executive Summary The benefits of the “Goal” novel book are numerous and the author highlights several aspects identifying problems and possible solutions to improve overall performance & management processes as an ongoing development. Alex Rogo, Manufacturing Plant Manager and the main character in the book reviews the fundamentals of redefining priorities in the process to achieve this goal. As I continued to read, the author elucidates diversified scientific, mathematic and upper level management methods. He identifies the problems as intrinsic constraints which are limiting people minds from moving forward and thinking out of the box. For instance, many businesses wasted labor hours and cost for studies and project reviews when the data is not applicable. Alex engages his team to list questions concerning daily operations, procedures and in some cases abandoned company policies. i.e., he replaced outdated methods with robot which required less overall labor hours but was costly. If the robot ran side by side with the old methods, the production could increase to almost double. The author embraces the magnitude of continues process improvement method for management processes in all different forms of businesses by relating scientific methods such as bottleneck “Theory of Constraints” to improve management processes, “Socratic Method” to lead people to the solution of future problems, and “Evaporating Cloud” to think laterally hence out of the box while utilizing......

Goal Statements Library

...Statement of Goals – Library and Information Science I have submitted my application for admission into the Kent State School of Library and Information Science as an avenue for professional growth within my current career. As a former Spanish teacher and currently a computer technology teacher, it is important to pursue the MLIS as current librarians seek retirement and technology continues to infiltrate libraries across our nation. I am currently interested in pursuing the MLIS plus the K-12 licensure in order to serve in an urban school library setting. My current teaching assignment of computer technology lends itself to a smooth transition from the classroom to a librarian position as our school district places more emphasis on digital media. I remain fully committed to providing instruction to students; however, with teachers and school librarians retiring in droves, I fear that our schools will be left with overworked teachers and no librarians in our schools. By completing the MLIS degree, I will be accomplishing an additional career objective. I remain committed to my career goals that were previously established many years ago. My first goal was accomplished by completing my undergraduate course of study at the University of Cincinnati. My second career goal was to obtain my M. Ed. In School Administration and I accomplished that particular goal in the year 2000. My third goal, albeit somewhat personal, was to earn my private pilot’s license, and I...

Goal Statement

...Goal Statement Personal/Professional Goals I decided to attend graduate school to further my career within my company. By obtaining my Master’s in Business, it will help to open so many doors for me on a managerial level. After graduate school, I plan to apply for a Quality Assurance Management position. For nine years I have worked as a Microbiologist and having somewhat of a lead role influenced me to further my education and career. I chose Business (Project) Management because it will offer so many career opportunities not only at my place of employment but with other companies. Academic Experience My undergraduate experience was very good and informative; I majored in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. At the time my major focus was on the medical and research field. During my undergrad years I did a lot of research and field work on Cyanobacteria, Cross genetics and Mammal population. During my first couple of years in college it was hard and I feel academically I could have done better. For several of my college years I worked full time making school very challenging. Over the course of time my grades gradually improved after deciding to quit working. Being in the science field gave me the skills to plan, execute and close any task or project that was presented to me. These are the skills that I feel will make a great and qualified Project Manager. Research Experience My research experience was the highlight of my academic experience throughout......

The Goal

...Constraint Management at UniCo: Analyzing “The Goal” as Fictional Case Study Abstract As a fictional case study, Eliyahu Goldratt’s novel about manufacturing, “The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement,” presents a constraint-focused approach to production management. As a novel, the book does not emphasize the quantitative details of the plant improvements. However, a great amount of information about the plant is spread throughout the book. By collecting and analyzing this data, a concrete picture may be developed of the plant’s capacity and its improvements, which can greatly help the book’s readers understand and evaluate the cumulative impact from the plant’s “process of ongoing improvement.” Keywords: Production planning, Theory of constraints, Drum buffer rope 1. Introduction: The Goal as Fictional Case Study Eliyahu Goldratt’s manufacturing novel The Goal: A Process of Continuous Improvement has inspired countless professionals in production (and many other fields (Whitford, 2004)) to embark on their own efforts of continuous improvement. As Rand (1986) writes, “It’s a novel, but it’s also a manufacturing text-book, and it’s good on both accounts.” Many reviewers have agreed The Goal is an easy-to read way to get an introduction to production realities (Belis, 1994, The Economist 1995, Dani 2006, Rand 1986). However, no one has taken a detailed look at the numbers presented in the book as a fictional case study. The concept of drum-buffer-rope (DBR)......

Goals

...1. Goals Essay I could start with some catchy motivational quote that gets people on their feet every morning and sends them out into the world to fight for a better, more successful you. This is what every person reads and is inspired by for a short time, but that’s not what I need to succeed. Dreams are roughly what people hope to come true, but also not what I need to succeed. Luck is for those who think winning and accomplishing something was not possible in their mind to begin with and is also not what I need to succeed. I need extensive incentive that drives beyond just a quote, a dream, or luck. I have three long term goals that form into one big picture motivated by my wife and children and will mold me into a role model for my family, a further successful employee at my job, and sturdier financial provider for my family. These three goals consist of completing my Associates of arts with a concentration in business, a bachelors of arts in business management, and advancing my career in the oil and gas industry. First, obtaining my Associates with a concentration in business is the shortest of my long terms goals. I have broken down this degree plan into three short term goals that will ultimately help myself achieve these goals by the summer of 2015. Each course I have viewed at Patten University is broken down into 8 units. I have set a goal to finish one unit every two days. This will approximately take two and a half weeks per class. Which leads to my second......

Goals

...Definitions Goals: Organisational goals are strategic objective that are established by the company’s management to show expected outcomes and what they presume from their employees. It is predetermined and describes future results toward which present efforts are directed. Setting goals can be a big advantage for organisations as it justifies a company’s activity; define performance standards; guide employee’s effort; provides a source of motivation by presenting a challenge and how to achieve it. Mission Statement: This defines what an organisation is, why it exists and its reason for being here. Basically a formal summary of the aims and values of a company. It should usually be short yet resonate with both employees and people outside the organisation as it should attract them. A good mission statement includes several key questions about your business e.g. what are the opportunities or needs the company addresses, what level of service is provided, what principles or beliefs guide the organisation. Mainly the purpose, strategy, policies and standards of behaviour and values. The advantages are that it helps communicate values and culture to employees, helps the marketing process as it communicates with customers, set the direction of the organisation and so help formulate strategy etc. Objectives: A specific result that a person or system aims to achieve within a time and with available sources. Objectives are basic tools that underline all planning and......

...                                                                        Goal Statement             Setting goals for yourself is a way to fuel your ambition. Goal setting isn’t just  about creating a plan for your life and holding yourself accountable, it's also about giving  you the inspiration necessary to aim for things we never thought possible. Goals help  you focus and allocate your time and resources efficiently.            I think negotiation is one of the most important skills person needs to succeed in  his/her career. My main goal for the course is to read about different kinds of  negotiations and get a thorough understanding of how to prevent it from becoming an  impasse. Furthermore, I want to learn about the different strategies and procedures of  how to reach an agreement.  Knowing when to step away from the negotiation table  and being able to really do it.            I think that good communication skills are a fundamental measure of a  negotiator's​  ​ strength. And I feel that it is my prime weakness. I don’t like to talk much,  even when I am in the classroom I might not say a word unless I Have to.               Also I feel like a good negotiator should be able to control her/his own  emotions, control the the temper and learn how to deal with negative emotions from the  other side of the table which is going to be hard for me. ......

Goal Statement

... PROFESSIONAL GOAL STATEMENT: PhD, SPECIAL EDUCATION (Early Intervention) I have worked in the medical field of Special Education as a qualified professional, both in private and public sectors. I currently hold a post-graduate degree from your institution pertaining to the same. The experience has kindled in me an urge to stay in this field and learn more about it. Therefore, I am presently applying for a Doctorate program in the same and plan to start fulltime in the fall. PROFESSIONAL GOALS While in the field, I realized that this is an area with diverse interests and acknowledge that there is still much to learn about the field. Specifically the key areas of interest to me include teacher education and reading disabilities. Disabilities limit the affected individuals to knowledge access, which is a right to everyone. I have noted this over four years of experience working with handicapped children. I intend to use the knowledge gained to help make the learning process easier and available to the handicapped. Teacher education is a key area that needs addressing, since they are ultimately responsible for imparting knowledge to the handicapped. Thus, I also plan to pursue a minor in the area. ACADEMIC EXPERIENCE I attained both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in the same at your institution. Thus, I feel better placed to further my knowledge in the same at the same institution. I have gained vast experience, both locally and abroad. I acted as the Assessment......

The Goal

...I. “The Goal” is a novel written by Eliyahu Goldratt and Jeff Cox. The novel introduces the Theory of Constraints. The Theory of Constraints is defined as a body of knowledge which helps in understanding the way a system functions and identifying those elements which constrain the system from achieving its goals (<http://tocjonah.blogspot.com.au/>, January 2006). Though the book is about an organization involved in the manufacturing process, TOC applies to any business, and any industry (<http://www.toc-lean.com/Goal_Overview.htm>, Hutchen). These “constraints” can be internal such as a process, technology, people, or external such as the market(<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theory_of_constraints>) The story is about a company called UniCo, a manufacturing company, with Alex Rogo as a plant manager. Things are not going very smoothly at UniCo. They have not been making money for months and are weeks behind schedule on certain orders. Bill Peach, Alex’s superior arrives at the plant one day and breaks the following news to Alex: he had three months to turn things around or the plant would shut down. Things have not been going so well at home either. Spending long hours at the plant and constantly thinking about issues, has caused a rift in his home life. His wife eventually moves out, leaving Alex to take care of his two kids. One day, he ran intoa former teacher named Jonah. The meeting introduced him to another way of thinking about the problems that......

Professional Goal Statement

...Example of a Professional Goal Statement: Doctoral Program in Special Education I have had the opportunity to work in Special Education as a paraprofessional and teacher, both in the public and private spheres. These experiences have created a passion in me to work in this field and learn more about it. As a consequence, I am presently completing a Masters and beginning my Doctorate Program, all in Special Education. I am currently taking one doctorate course this semester and plan to start fulltime in the Fall. Since I am still in the early stages of the program, my interests are diverse and I recognize that there is much to learn regarding Special Education as a whole. Nevertheless three areas of specific interest for me include reading disabilities, early intervention, and teacher education, which I expand upon in what follows. A key component throughout my six years of professional experience has been working with students with reading disabilities. In this time, I have become exposed to different methods and ways of teaching students. In turn, I am eager to become well-read in the literature around reading disabilities and do my own research in the area. Presently, I plan to pursue a minor related to this area. Concurrently, I am interested in early intervention specifically related to learning disabilities. I have had the opportunity to act as the Assessment Coordinator for the Children’s School Success project for the last academic year. This grant......
