Affiliation Needs As Aristotle called humans “the social animal”, indeed we have an intense need to belong – to connect with others in enduring, close relationship(Myers,2007). Around the world and across age-groups, most people spend about 3/4 of their time with others. People want not merely the presence of others but close ties with people who care about them.

Two theories explain the reasons for our affiliation needs:
1. Social comparison Theory
2. Social exchange theory

Social comparison Theory One way to know ourselves and better understand our place in the social environment is to compare ourselves with others. This information is required to evaluate the self. Theory of Social exchange Focus of this theory is on interaction between people. This theory proposes that we seek out and maintain those relationships in which the reward exceeds the cost. The exchanged goods can be either material (money, food, etc.) or nonmaterial (social influence, affection, information, etc Husband and wife exchange work and affection with each other. States that people are basically hedonists and they exchange rewards for maintaining their well-being. Earliest versions of this theory (George Homans, 1958) state that all social relationships are like economic bargains in which each party places a value on the goods they exchange with one another.…...

Inter-Firm Coordination as an Information Problem.

...Inter-firm coordination as an information problem. The case of a divisionalized company Antonio Leotta Assistant Professor of Accounting University of Catania (Italy) Department: Impresa, Culture e Società Email: ABSTRACT The extant literature on inter-organizational control distinguishes the main control problems as coordination problems and appropriation concerns. The present study focuses on coordination problems and is intended to understand the process leading to the hybrid nature of inter-firm coordination modes and the role of information in this process. In a theoretical part, after discussing the main critical assumptions underlying coordination studies, an integrative framework is proposed to conceptualize the coordination process and describe the role of information in this process. In Particular, the framework assumes inter-firm settings as a-centered and a-static, whence the relevance of an interpretive approach where coordination is viewed as a process characterized by dialectic interactions between coordinating actors. The empirical part of the study is aimed at verifying the explanatory power of the framework studying a case of outsourcing relations in a divisionalized company operating in the semi-conductor industry. The case provided useful data giving new insights that enrich the framework. Keywords: coordination; information; system;: process; inter-organizational relations.

Cultural Thought Pattern in Inter-Cultural Education

...Cultural thought patterns in inter-cultural education In this article by the renowned Professor Emeritus of applied linguistics, he seeks to emphasize the need to have a different teaching approach to reading and composition for foreign students and a different way for American students due to the cultural differences and nature of rhetoric. Although babies do not learn languages through grammar books or dictionaries, it is a subconscious process, and they learn through exposure to the language and surrounding environment. Learners of a language are subjected to a conscious process, and have to learn the language through memorizing alphabets, grammar rules and memorizing vocabulary and common phrases. Contrastive rhetoric as described in the article has three assumptions that; each language has a set of rules for writing unique to it that linguistic and rhetorical conventions of a first language interfere with the learning of a second language and that spoken word and written words are cultural phenomena. As rhetoric concerns itself with what goes on in the mind rather than what comes out of the mouth, we have to realize that diversity affects not only the languages, but also the culture. Language, in turn, is the effect and the expression of a certain world view that is manifested by a culture. Language presents a kind of destiny, so far as human thought is concerned, this diversity of languages leads to a radical relativism and thoughts. Rhetoric being a means......

Inter-Professional Learning Reflection on Group Process

...AHP -3-503 -Inter-professional Learning Reflection on group process Reflection summary Following completion of the above unit, I reflected on the group process (comprising 10 members of students from various allied health professions), considering my role in the group, how I related to others and the group in relation to the relevant theory. I have written this reflection using John’s Model For Structured Reflection (2000). Looking in During this unit, each group was given a task to design a campaign to raise awareness about the allied health professions, to be pitched at those who were in primary and secondary education and also to graduates. This was then to be presented to some of the other groups at the end of the unit. We began by discussing and sharing our ideas within our group. Reflecting back over this unit, I was quite aware of how the group of ten did appear quite large to begin with, and I felt it was difficult at times for everyone to have their say, including myself. I did feel that I held back on saying some of my ideas, partly because initially I did not feel comfortable sharing them in a group of people I didn’t know very well and felt that I was lacking a bit of confidence to speak up. There were some members who spoke more than others, which I was expecting, but I did feel that everyone was trying to make a contribution and felt happy that everyone was been given an opportunity to speak and share ideas. As we got to know each other better,......

Inter-Process Communication (Ipc)

...1. Inter-process Communication (IPC) Introduction Inter-Process Communication, which in short is known as IPC, deals mainly with the techniques and mechanisms that facilitate communication between processes. Now, why do we need special separate mechanisms or techniques for communicating between processes? Why isn't it possible to have information shared between two processes without using such special mechanisms? Let us start from something primitive. Imagine you have two glasses completely filled with water. One glass contains hot water and the other contains cold water. What can you do to make the temperature of water in both the glasses equal? The simplest answer will be to mix the water from both the glasses in a glass with much bigger capacity. Once water is mixed, the temperature becomes equal after some time. If one can remember, this will be framed as a problem with some numerical data in a High-School Physics examination. If we go by principles, then the phenomenon here is conduction. If we go by our topic of IPC, then we can say that since the two glasses were full, we had to use another glass with a larger capacity to mix the contents in order to balance their heat energy. We know that some medium or other is required for communication between different processes. Similarly, when it comes to computer programs, we need some mechanism or medium for communication. Primarily, processes can use the available memory to communicate with each other. But then, the......

Inter Office Dating

...| Inter-Office dating | [Type the document subtitle] | | | | | Many organizations have adopted the policy that does not allow the dating or marriage of two employees. This topic is always a heavily debated subject by the employees of these companies, as they do not feel these will be any conflict of interest or drama brought into the office. I will be addressing the possibility of what kind of reaction a spouse or partner will have when the other person is promoted past the other. I will also be expressing the companies’ concerns of what can happen in the workplace between couples, some of these are sexual harassment issues that happen during and after the relationship. The companies’ rights to prevent its employees from coming together, and what the law says they can do. I am going to also present the side of these employees and how this rule can affect an employee’s moral and work performance when they have such strong feelings for another. The final topic is the ethical decision that surrounds the whole subject of inter-office dating. These ethics involve the questions that are presented to the two employees that are breaking the rule, should they tell their supervisor about their feelings for each other or should one of them quit their job, and if so, which one is going to quit? There are also the friends of the couple that know it is against company policy, but do they get their friends in trouble just because they know it is ethically right......

Inter Company Financial Ratio Analysis

...Inter Company Analysis Britannia can be compared with its competitor on the basis of various ratios as mentioned below Current Ratio Britannia has a current ratio of 1.054 in comparison to HUL which has a current ratio of of 0.79.The high current ratio mainly is because of a more than proportionate increase of the Current Assets when compared to the Current Liabilities. Debt Equity Ratio There is a stark comparison between the two companies in terms of funding. While HUL funds its operations from lower and lower loans every year, Britannia increasingly funds its operations through more and more debt, possibly due to lesser cost of debt. This is visible in the DER of HUL at 0.07 and 1.084 of Britannia. Interest Coverage Ratio The interest coverage ratio is a measurement of the number of times a company could make its interest payments with its earnings before interest and taxes. Lower the ratio, higher is the company’s debt burden. This is measured as the ratio between the profit before interest and taxes to the interest amount paid that year. The ICR of Britannia has improved over last year from 20.77 to 29.62.But in case of HUL there has been a drastic improvement .ICR has rose from 122.22 to 409.36.

Inter-Office Memo

...SALEM, OREGON INTER-OFFICE MEMORANDUM To: All Departments, and Officer Employees From: Colonel Pat Bacon, Director of the State Police Department Date: May 21, 2014 Subject: Planting Evidence, Perjury, and Falsifying Police Reports It has come to the attention of this department that there have been reports of questionable conduct from some of our officer employees. Police officers that are supposed to enforce the law, at times become more aggressive than the criminals themselves. How much corruption there is and knowing its characteristics are important steps to understanding corruption and then being able to successfully control corruption without illegal means is what is done. We uphold the laws, not bend them or break them to apprehend suspects, and criminals, “the bad guys.” Because of these reports, there is a serious threat to our law enforcement, which could compromise the values of our profession and our high ethical standards, and it is called “Noble Cause Corruption.” Noble Cause Corruption Noble cause corruption policing can be thought of as “doing something bad that will have a good end.” Peter Northouse This happens a lot when good police officers care too much about their job and the people of the community, and in order to get criminals off the streets they begin to do bad things because they truly believe that the overall “outcome will be good or justify the means.” Peter Northouse Examples of noble cause corruption can...

Italy During Inter

...Italy During the Inter-War Years Italy had joined World War 1 on the side of the Allies after the promises at the secret Treaty of London signed in 1915. Via this treaty, Italy was promised large sections of the Adriatic Sea region – Istria, Dalmatia and Tyrol. During the war came the disaster of Caporetto. Italians -forced to fight the entire Austrian army and 7 German divisions- lost a total of 300,000 men. The defeat impacted heavily on the psychology of the Italian populace. By the end of the war, Italy was fewer by more than a million men and had spent more than it had in the last 50 years. The only consolation would be the achievement of the territories that had brought Italy to war in the first place. After the victory, Italy sent its delegation to the Treaty of Versailles. Along with the promised territories, Italy also aimed to gain lands such as Fiume, which had a majority Italian population. Disaster struck when Italy’s demands were ignored by the Big Three. The promises of the Treaty of London were not kept -indeed Winston Churchill refused to even recognize the Treaty. The Italian government was humiliated in front of its public, as the public was dismayed at all the war costs amounting to nothing. It was this feeling that led to a rise in irredentism in Italy and collected support for the notion of a ‘mutilated victory’. The public desired for Italy to rank alongside the Big Three powers. It was with this feeling that nationalist poet Gabriele D’Annunzio led......

Inter Country Adoption India

...Inter-country Adoption: A Brief Background and Case Study Inter-country adoption (ICA) is a practice that has gained popularity over the years, and there is every reason to believe this trend will continue. For couples (or individuals) whose country of residence has few healthy babies available for adoption, going outside the country for a child is a desirable option. It is also desirable from the perspective of the child, who usually comes from a country with more available children than potential adoptive parents. Right away, these seem to be two very compelling reasons to support the idea of inter-country adoption, and work toward its best model. The purpose of this paper is to give an overview of inter-country adoption using India as a case study. The paper will give a brief background of ICA and the main problems it both addresses and raises, then look at the case of India in particular, and, finally, provide some directions for policy and further research. Background on ICA ICA began in earnest as a response by North American countries to the post-WWII devastation. At that point, it was a humanitarian reaction to the needs of the newly-orphaned children in Europe. Since that time, ICA has shifted its focus to become a means for individuals in the developed world to have children. In most Western nations, the number of healthy infants available for adoption has been steadily decreasing, due to a number of social and economic factors including......

Network Structure and Inter-Organizational Knowledge Sharing Capability

...Network Structure and Inter-organizational Knowledge Sharing Capability ABSTRACT This paper examines how the structure of a supply network can affect the inter-organizational knowledge sharing capability, which is expressed by absorptive capacity and shared identity. The supply network structure is analyzed by two dimensions – formality and centrality. Propositions about the relationships between network structure and knowledge sharing capability are suggested at the end. Subject Areas: Supply chain management, Inter-organizational knowledge sharing, Absorptive capacity, Shared identity, Network structure. 1 1. INTRODUCTION Historically, individual organizations have tried to improve their own performance in an effort to gain competitive advantage. Today, the success of an individual organization depends largely on the performance of its suppliers and customers [1]. Consequently, supply chain or supply network management is one of the critical success factors in today’s marketplace [2]. As organizations increasingly connect with and rely on partners and suppliers in their supply networks, interdependencies among these organizations naturally increase. This increase, in turn, makes today’s supply networks more complex [3], and members of such complex supply networks face many sources of uncertainties – internal as well as external1. Fisher [4] argues that the strategy of the supply network – lean vs. responsive – should be aligned with the product types – functional vs...
