LEADERSHIP REFLECTIVE JOURNAL 6
In this tutorial, I learned about Appreciate Inquiry, which is a practical framework of emotion in leadership. Appreciate inquiry is an approach from Positive Organisational Scholarship (POS), which focuses on companies creating positive work life and performance. The four key components of positive organizational scholarship (POS) are self-efficacy, hope, optimism and resiliency. I practiced AI by following 3 steps consisting of Positive priming, Group discussion and provided positive answer to the question Student contribution in tutorials on the BSc in Business management and how it can be even better, even stronger.
The tutorial delivered an emotion- based approach that leader may adapt to implement change in organisation. Through the Appreciate Inquiry, a leader as well as subordinates should have the ability think more positively and thus be able to manage organisational performance through positive changes. The practice of Appreciate Inquiry also introduces a new approach to understanding of emotion and leadership; it concentrates more on the positive emotion and cognitive process rather than the negative sides as it helps to identify the strengths and opportunity
Being in AI mode; I felt that thinking positively did provide a number of advantages. The AI allowed me to minimise or ignore all the negative factors or counter argument for every point I make for the improvement in Business Management improvement issue. This allowed me to think forward, identify and assess strengths and opportunity rather than just weakness and threats. I was good experience since I don't have to put the issue as a debate where you have to put argument and debate in the thought process. Thus I was able to be more creative and development positive solutions to the issues that could offset the negative factors. Also teamwork helps to enhance each…...

...1. What are the main characteristics of E-Land’s knowledge management? As you can see from Fig.1)KM model, by constructing the cycle which integrates performance management, knowledge management and learning organizations, BSC process is used as the Knowledge Management tool. This structure creatively applies structural characteristics of BSC to Knowledge Management and is expected to systematically raise knowledge workers’ productivity. KM formed the cornerstone of E-Land Group’s operational excellence strategy. Following four reasons are ① Capturing and sharing best practices: The Chief Knowledge Officer’s team created an integrated KM/performance management structure. Key components included tools and processes for capturing and sharing best practices and lessons learned-specifically, an online KMS is fully integrated with E-Land’s BSC. ② CSO (Chief Strategic Officer)’s communication: To further its knowledge management, a CSO communicates the company’s vision, mission, and strategy to the SBUs ③ Knowledge capital / Value creation connection: E-Land also makes the knowledge capital/value creation connection in ways other than through its CSO and CKO roles. Every year, business leaders use BSC indicators to prepare a Knowledge Asset Management (KAM), an assessment of each unit’s process infrastructure and competencies. They then use this assessment to set mid-to long-range corporate strategy. ④ All employees’ participation and awareness: All employees participate in......

Literature Review Following Norreklit on Bsc (2000) (Draft)

...provide an overview of the development of the BSC from conception to the present. They recognize four periods in the development of the BSC: 1. Assembling a local idea This is the formative period in Analogue Devices (ADI) from 1985 to 1992. It was not a formal BSC. The focus here is on the initial concepts and how to build a network of support within the organization. 2. Building networks In this period, the scorecard is conceptualized to the BSC. This is where the first acquaintance with the BSC originated outside of ADI and other organizations experiment with it went. With his idea of ​​balance and the connection of the received quality to outcomes are herein BSC four perspectives model, also known as quadrant model. 3. Framing and generalists sing the BSC BSC developed in this period of a more local solution to a generally applicable framework. 4. Extending and controlling networks This period is characterized by continuous development of the BSC. Kaplan and Norton here are very actively involved in, in the form of consultancy, research and discussions with stakeholders. Here, they act to remain in the lead in the development of this method. According to Kaplan and Norton, the development of the BSC through three phases: 1. From 1990 to 1996 the development of the BSC as a measurement system 2. From 1996 to 2002 the development of the BSC as a performance management system 3. From 2002 to 2009 the development of the BSC as a core competency, which replace the......

Bsc 118 Effects on Enzymatic Activity

...Effects on Enzymatic Activity Tyler Mitchell BSC 118-002 Shon Johnson November 1, 2011 Abstract Without the effects of enzymes, many crucial chemical reactions would not be able to take place at the rate of which they were meant to perform. We conducted this series of labs in order to discover the effects of different biological and environmental aspects on enzymatic activity. In our first experiment, we looked at the effects that enzyme concentration had on amylase activity. We hypothesized that the higher the concentration of the enzyme, the higher the rate of reaction would take place. We found that a higher concentration of amylase led to a faster rate of reaction, proving our hypothesis to be correct. In our second experiment, we tested the effect the concentration of substrate would have on enzymatic activity. We hypothesized that the lower concentration of the substrate would not change the speed of the reaction. The experiment proved this hypothesis to be wrong because the speed of the reaction slowed down as the concentration lowered. In the third experiment, we tested the effects that different pH levels would have on enzymatic activity. We hypothesized that the more acidic the solution was, the lower the rate of the reaction will be. In Areekijseree’s article, it states that optimal pH levels for amylase are between 4 and 5, and 6 and 8 (Areekisjseree, Engkagul, Kovitvadhi, Thongpan, Mingmuang, Pakkong, Rungruangsak-Torrissen, 2004).

...LESSON 1: History of Electronics The introduction of vacuum tubes at the beginning of the 20th century was the starting point of the rapid growth of modern electronics. With the vacuum tubes the manipulation signals became possible, which could not be done with the early telegraph and telephone circuit or with the early transmitters using high voltage sparks to create radio waves. Example: weak radio and audio signals can be amplified, audio signals such as music or voice can be superimposed radio waves. The development of a large variety of tubes designed for specialized functions made possible the swift progress of radio communication technology before World War II and the development of early computers during and shortly after the war. The transistor invented in 1948, has now completely replaced the vacuum tubes in most of its application. Incorporating an arrangement of semiconductor materials and electrical contacts, the transistor provides the same functions at reduced cost, weight and power consumption and with higher reliability. Subsequent advances in semiconductor technology, in part attributable to the intensity of research associated with the space exploration effort led to the development of the integrated circuit. Integrated circuits may contain hundreds of thousands of transistors on small piece of material and allow the construction of complex electronic circuits, such as those in microcomputers, audio, and video equipment and communication satellites. ...

Strategic Management Paper

...Running head: STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT PROCESS PAPER Strategic Management Process Paper University of Phoenix Strategic Management Process Paper “Change has a considerable psychological impact on the human mind. To the fearful it is threatening because it means that things may get worse. To the hopeful it’s encouraging because things may get better. To the hopeful it is inspiring because things may get better. To the confident it is inspiring because the challenge exists to make things better” (Whitney, 2011). In this day and age businesses are faced with great challenges one in particular is becoming a profitable organization. In order for businesses to combat these challenges they must take risks and utilize strategic management to determine which direction the company will move. This paper will attempt to discuss the primary components of strategic management and why it is used in a company. Next a company will be researched and the strategic management process will be identified. Environmental scanning is the first step in the strategic management model (Wheelen and Hunger, 2010). This process involves looking at internal and external variables that have an impact on a business. The environmental scanning process identifies strategic factors. Businesses use many tools to identify this information, the most common being the strengths, weakness, opportunities, trends and threats (SWOTT) analysis. This helps to identify the factors that can play a......

...1. Compare Pandora's original business model with its current business model. What's the difference between "free" and "freemium" revenue models? Pandora originally started with a subcription type of business model wherein users must pay $36 per month after they have used up their 10 hours of free access. The original model used was the free trial type. What happened was after the free trial of 10 hours was used up, the customers were unwilling to pay for the subscription fee. Now, the new and current model being used by Pandora   is the freemium business model. The new model offered users longer time limit in using their features, which could be used again in the next month and so on. They gave the users 3 options after the free time was used up. It was either (a) to pay $0.99 for the month, (b) sign up for a premium service offering unlimited access, and (c) do nothing and wait for the next month to come, which was said previously. The new model turned out to be successful and was able to double the profits for Pandora. The free revenue model offers a free trial of a product/service for a limited time. After the users have used up the free trial period, the company now will charge the user in order for him/her to continue the use of the company’s products/services. The freemium revenue model, in the other hand, offers the user unlimited free access but only to limited features of the company’s products/services. ...

It is maintained and distributed by the Nonprofit Learning Center.  2004, Creative Direct Response, Inc. USING A BALANCED SCORECARD IN A NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION Using a Balanced Scorecard in a Nonprofit Organization Joel Zimmerman, Ph.D., Director of Consulting Services Creative Direct Response, Inc. Since its invention in the 1990s, the balanced scorecard has won acceptance as a management tool in the for-profit sector. Now, nonprofits are becoming familiar with, and trying to use, balanced scorecards. This white paper explains what balanced scorecards are and gives critically important tips about how to adapt them successfully into the nonprofit world. “Balanced Scorecard” has been a corporate management buzzword for about a decade. Like many management movements before it, balanced scorecard is migrating from corporate management into the offices of nonprofit management. The transition of a balanced scorecard concept from for-profit to nonprofit organizations is not direct. The basic ideas behind creating a balanced scorecard are as valid for nonprofits as they are for corporate businesses, but the implementation of this idea needs to be modified a bit to make it work effectively in the nonprofit world. In this article, we will look at what a balanced scorecard is all......

Bsc, Business Score Model

...Mô hình năng lực Career and Competency Pathing: The Competency Modeling Approach By Maggie LaRocca Introduction Competencies are behaviors that encompass the knowledge, skills, and attributes required for successful performance. In addition to intelligence and aptitude, the underlying characteristics of a person, such as traits, habits, motives, social roles, and self-image, as well as the environment around them, enable a person to deliver superior performance in a given job, role, or situation.Competency modeling is the activity of determining the specific competencies that are characteristic of high performance and success in a given job. Competency modeling can be applied to a variety of human resource activities. This research paper will describe how organizations identify their core competencies and how they are applying this competency data to improve performance. It will also explain some emerging trends in competency modeling. Developing Competency Models Competencies enable employees to achieve results, thereby creating value. It follows that competencies aligned with business objectives help foster an organization's success. Organizations must understand their core competency needs - the skills, knowledge, behaviors, and abilities that are necessary for people in key roles to deliver business results.According to Boulter, et al (1998), there are six stages involved in defining a competency model for a given job role. These stages are: 1. Performance criteria......
