As your manager this meeting was necessary to facilitate self directed high performance teams within the organization. By having these teams this would benefit the company’s production as well as give the organization a team environment.

There are huge benefits by having teams within the organization. The first benefit would be that the projects that an individual would do is slower because by working just individually the work is slowed and the project does not get done on a timely basis. Looking at the team perspective it would be noted that the benefit of having a team would be the projects would get done faster and the productivity increases. With this increase one can see that the projects can get delivered to our stores for sales and revenue. When the production increases then the revenue increases.
By having a well planned organization with teams this means that we would have to train our individuals so that they would know how to work in teams efficiently.

...Wikipedia Workforce Planning Definitions[edit] Workforce Planning is the business process for ensuring that an organization has suitable access to talent (potential candidates that have the ability to undertake required activities including decisions making) to ensure future business success. Access to talent includes considering all potential resources (employment, contracting out, partnerships, changing business activities to modify the types of talent required, etc.). The cycle of workforce planning includes filling resource requests, analyzing resource utilization, forecasting capacity, managing and identifying the resources (human) to fill that capacity, and then restarting the cycle.[2] Strategic Workforce Planning is the framework applied for Workforce Planning and Workforce Development, where the links between corporate and strategic objectives and their associated workforce implications are demonstrated.

So, even if you don't need a formal plan, think carefully about going through the planning process. It could be......

...Bus 200 Class Paper Planning I originally was going to write about Leading as my subject matter for the Research Paper. I had been reading articles about Leading for a while and had the two I wanted picked out. Then I was online and read an article about Business Planning. The article was so interesting to me that I switched my topic and found another article on Planning and chose to compare and write about the two. The first article is by Francesca Di Meglio, a reporter for in Fort Lee, N.J. The article is titled “Real Entrepreneurs Don’t Write Business Plans.” She references a Business School professor, Steve Blank, and talks about his class and what the students are learning about real Entrepreneurship. Professor Blank teaches a class called Lean LaunchPad at UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, Columbia Business School and Stanford’s engineering school. He says that Entrepreneurship is about getting out into the world and doing, not simply researching and writing. The premise of the course is that aspiring entrepreneurs need to know their customer and must test their hypotheses to have any chance at success. The teams build a product or service at the beginning of class and immediately go out and talk to 10 to 15 people per week to test their theories about business challenges, such as pricing. I find this to be very interesting because I know the importance of hands on experience. My entire career up to this point has been self......

Proactive Tactics

...Proactive Tactics The three proactive tactics I'm going to discuss are repeat offenders programs (ROPs), decoy operations, and efforts against drunk drivers. The repeat offenders programs first objective is to recognize repeat offenders by their past criminal history and activity. After they have recognized the repeat offenders they will use surveillance by watching the person and waiting for the individual to commit a crime. After the surveillance of a crime they can make a formal arrest. The repeat offender’s programs second objective is a proactive tactic that can be done in two different ways, blending and decoy. The blending method is where enforcement dress as plain clothed citizens. This keeps other members of the community to not recognize them as law enforcement. This helps them to gain information and keep a close eye for crime. Decoy is where officer’s dress and role play as ordinary citizens. The officers may dress and act in any way needed to portray themselves as an easy target for crime. This helps them to gain the interest of the criminal in order to arrest him. Efforts against drunk driving have been one of the top concerning issues that need attention in America today. Police officers and law enforcement will set up road side stops for every car that falls under a certain number on the road. The officers will then try to determine if the person is under the influence of any alcohol, if the person is suspected of being under the influence they are......

INTRODUCTION TO PLANNING [pic] Planning is the most fundamental of all the management functions. Before a manager can tackle any management functions he/she must devise a plan. A plan binds all the functions together and makes them work in synchronism. A plan is a blueprint for goal achievement that specifies the necessary resource allocations, schedules, tasks, and other actions. A goal is a desired future state that the organization attempts to realize. Goals are important because an organization exists for a purpose, and goals define and state that purpose. Goals specify future ends; plans specify today’s means. The word planning incorporates both ideas: It means determining the organization’s goals and defining the means for achieving them. Planning allows managers the opportunity......

...Planning Definition of Planning The process of planning involves establishment of overall action strategy, determination of goals, finding a way for achieving those goals through the strategy. These require existence of accurate and comprehensive plan for the strategy to be successful. Development of an action plan is a requirement.

So the employees know what are the needs of the organization and what is required from them to do. This can affect also the overall performance of the employees.

Economic Advantages of Proactive Maintainance

...Economic advantages of proactive over reactive aircraft maintenance Name Course Institution Instructor Date Economic advantages of proactive over reactive aircraft maintenance The term proactive, in general terms, refers to exhibiting anticipatory or self-initiatory characteristics or behavior. Proactive maintenance in mechanical terms refers to taking steps in order to solve a problem of equipment malfunction before it becomes a bigger issue. The process of proactive maintenance involves taking steps in advance before the occurrence of a future situation, rather than waiting then reacting. On the other hand, reactivity refers to taking action after an avoidable situation culminates into a big problem. Reactivity maintenance approach refers to unscheduled actions taken as a consequence of a systems failure. The reactive approach is basically adopting a “wait and see” attitude to doing things. Aviation is one of the largest industries in the world and directly or indirectly has economic consequences to everyday life. Because of this, it makes more sense to maintain a proactive approach to maintenance of aircrafts as opposed to a reactive maintenance approach. The proactive approach involves predicting potential challenges that might interfere with the operations of mechanical equipment. The industry avoids unscheduled downtimes by adopting a proactive approach. The industry holds operations in most, if not all the......
