Introduction to the Third Edition

...INTRODUCTION TO THE THIRD EDITION Since the second edition of this book published in 2007, the globalization of the economy has seen its momentum challenged by two financial crises. Starting in the USA, the so-called ‘subprime’ crisis has obliged governments around the world to engage in Neo-Keynesian policies in order to consolidate the stumbling global financial system. More recently the ‘Eurozone’ crisis has called into question one of the most ambitious international cooperations and has seen populations asking for more protectionism. In the Middle East, dictatorial regimes have been ousted by the revolutionary ‘Arab Spring’ and the newly formed governments are trying to find a way between global exchange and Islamic tradition. During these difficult times, emerging countries from Asia, Latin America and Africa have increasingly asserted their newly found economic and financial power and demanded a bigger participation in world governance. The tsunami that struck Fukushima in Japan in March 2011 creating a nuclear accident has convinced many nations to reconsider their energy policy. Despite all of this, globalization, even though criticized, is still active. Firms are moving to the new emerging economies in order to capture the consumption appetite of the growing middle classes. It is still relevant and important to put together all aspects of global strategic management. This third edition is still about global firms and global management. Its objective remains to......

Sociology Aqa as Unit 01 Workbook

...WORKBOOK ANSWERS AQA AS Sociology Unit 1 Families and Households This Answers book provides some possible answers that might be given for the questions asked in the workbook. They are not exhaustive and other answers may well be acceptable, but they are intended as a guide to give teachers and students feedback. The responses for the longer essay-style questions are intended to give some idea about how the exam questions might be answered. Again, these are not the only ways to answer such questions but they can be treated as one way of approaching questions of these types. Topic 1 Functionalist and New Right views of the family How have functionalist and New Right thinkers explained family life and the relationship between families and social change? 1 The organic analogy refers to the extended comparison made by functionalists between the human or other living body and society, with the organs of the body equivalent to institutions and structures in society. 2 Primary socialisation refers to the first and most important stage of the socialisation process by which young children absorb the norms and values of their culture, mainly from their parents. Note: make sure your answer explains both ‘primary’ and ‘socialisation’. 3 One way in which the nuclear family is more suited than other types of family to modern industrial society is that it allows for geographical mobility; it is easier to move a nuclear family to a new area for, say, a...

Linked Worksheets and Workbooks

...Linked Worksheets and Workbooks . Linked Worksheets and Workbooks Worksheets and workbooks have long been the backbone to many organizations and companies. They are used for just about all a business’s record keeping, from tracking sales to the financial accounting. I reviewed a couple of articles and I found one that emphasized the need for proper workbooks and worksheets. This article goes in detail on how a company by the name of Jaguar Mining took its workbooks and consolidated them to fit the business needs. Jaguar Mining was having trouble because even though it was a small company it was trying to manage three separate workbooks, composed of over 100 linked spreadsheets, containing the financial and operational data for the mining and headquarters locations. That was a lot of work for such a minor company. Each sheet represented different functions for each mine and plant, including operating, capital, and cost data, as well as the monthly financial results. Well this was an impossible task at a company that only had ten people at the company headquarters. The company found that Excel just was not going to work for them. What it did next was switch to a company called Adaptive Planning (now called Adaptive Insight). It still has workbooks and worksheets but now the information that is needed is merged to suit the company’s needs. Jaguar Mining still has its workbooks and worksheets but now can input the data in a form......

Gibb and Dyches Workbook Summary

...Gibb and Dyches workbook summary Charlie Baldwin Liberty University Gibb and Dyches workbook summary Special Education and the Individualized Education Program The Individualized Education Program (IEP) is a legal document used by schools in order to map out a plan of action for those that are in need of special education. An IEP is created for students who have been classified with a disability and are between the ages of 3 and 21. An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is a written statement of the educational program designed to meet a child’s individual educational needs. Every child who receives special education services must have an IEP. An individualized education program has the goal of setting reasonable improvement learning goals for a child for one year including the role the school will assist the student to achieve their specific goals (Gibb & Dyches, 2016). The IEP is developed by a team that meets and discusses the relevant information about the child's strengths and deficiencies. The team meets, in order to analyze the data obtained by gathering data and individual assessments data about the child. The team then develops specific educational interventions educational to address the child’s educational deficiencies that result from his or her disability. This team meets at least once a year but as often as needed to ensure that the child’s educational needs are being met. The IEP has two important roles. The first is the special education plan...
