Getting to Yes

...“Getting To Yes” is an excellent book that is very easy to read. Every chapter has some excellent points that can always help negotiate an agreement without giving in completely. I am a manager of a directional drilling company in Midland. I have 39 employees that are under me. By reading this book it has given me plenty of tools to talk to my guys in situations where both of us need to compromise to get what we want. The first chapter talks about not bargaining over positions. Most people negotiate by staking out extreme positions in the beginning and then negotiating towards a middle ground compromise. This is a bad idea because right from the start both sides are committed to their position and will defend it to the end. This chapter talks about a new way of negotiation by negotiation on the merits. This is where you separate the people from the problem and focus on the interests not the positions. Then you invent mutual options for personal gain and insist that the results be based on some standard. The next section I enjoyed talks about separating the people from the problem. When negotiating you must make sure that both sides are involved in the negotiations at every state so they will know what is coming in the deal so the feel like they are making the decision and not being dictated to. When my employees come to me for a problem I have learned to talk it out with them and try to make them see it from my side as well. This has really helped because......

The knowledge banking concept was the main differentiator and using this approach they were planning to give specialized services......

...any CRM solution,” says Sharma. And from those priorities was born the concept of the Yes Bank Collaborative CRM (YCCRM). But Sharma’s in-house YCCRM wasn’t satisfied with just fulfilling these needs. Sharma felt that customer feedback was vital, and that the bank needed to embrace its customers. “The difference was collaboration. We wanted to make it collaborative by making the customer part of the system. We were keen on empowering the customer to share his ideas and feedback. The system has two logical separation models: a pre-acquisition and a post-acquisition service cycle for customers,” explains Sharma. It took six to eight months to develop and implement the solution in the first branch. The YCCRM banks very heavily on employee collaboration. “Information lying in islands, without being shared across, is of no use at all. Internal collaboration adds a productive edge to the information we capture,” says Sharma. The customer information captured in the YCCRM is mapped to blog-like entries made by employees. These entries include ideas, suggestions, and perceptions of the REAL CIO WORLD | j a n u a r y 1 5 , 2 0 0 9 35 Open to Collaboration 34 j a n u a r y 1 5 , 2 0 0 9 | REAL CIO WORLD IllUStratIo n by an Il t In tough economic times, when money is dear and customers dearer, the lack of a CRM system can play spoil sport.

Yes Men

...consumer, workers, and businesses. Briefly define the Yes Men, and discuss in what ways, if any, beliefs, attitudes, and values play into or relate to the Yes Men’s formation and tactic. The Yes Men consider themselves to be activist that exposes what they find to be the wrong doings of large companies. The Yes Men are Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno. They have developed a network of likeminded individuals that attempt to raise awareness about social issues that they consider to be a problem in society. They have impersonated corporate officials to give the media something they consider to be important to write about. They feel that they are helping society with their actions by exposing illegal or irresponsible activity that these large corporations are doing. They consider themselves crime fighters. Do you agree or disagree with the tactics of the Yes Men? What concepts from class and textbook readings thus far, particularly those in Chs. 3 and 4, support your position? While I find the hijinks of the Yes Men wildly entertaining I don’t really believe exposure by deception is necessarily the right way to go about it. Although I may not agree with their tactics they have certainly found a creative way to influence public opinion of the corporations they’ve managed to infiltrate with their message. They are attempting to change the attitudes of these companies by using the power of persuasion to change the way people perceive the company in question. What degree......

...Robbins states the terms participation and involvement are not interchangeable (p. 62). This participation can be either at the individual level or as part of a group or team dynamic. A brief mention of decision making styles is necessary too. Dozens of components factor into the process of making a decision. The styles or processes to arrive at a decision also greatly vary. Factors that weigh into the styles include: creativity, rationality, motivation and expertise. In order to make the proper decision one must be aware of the problem, the alternatives—the choice—consider the ethical and moral ramifications, cultural impact and other constraining factors such as time. One’s tolerance for ambiguity, ranging between high and low, and way of thinking, ranging from rational to intuitive, are two more pieces to the decision making pie. As mentioned in the text, the four major types of decision making styles are directive, analytical, behavioral and Saichaie 4 conceptual (p. 78). My style happens to be conceptual. A further discussion of this topic will be included later in the paper. Teamwork’s value in an organizational setting cannot be overlooked. Note: teams and groups are different unto themselves. Work groups primarily interact to “share information and make decisions to help one another perform within each member’s area of responsibility” while a work team “generates positive synergy through a coordinated effort” (p. 101). In a team setting,......

...Yes or No Did communism threaten America’s internal security after World War II (WWII)? Some say yes, and some say no. In this article of Taking Sides John Earl Haynes and Harvey Klehr, both history professors, claim that during the “Venona Project” of WWII the code-breakers of the U.S. army revealed a troubling number of U.S. government officials who were passing on secret information on to the Soviet Union and completely spoiled American comforts (Issue Summary). One of the officials that were caught was Harry White. Being one of the most powerful officials in the U.S. Treasury Department, White warned the KGB on how the diplomatic strategy of America could be upset. Another official that was caught was Lauchlin Currie. Currie was President Franklin Roosevelt’s most trusted assistants. He told the KGB about the investigation that the FBI had started on one of the Soviets’ American agents, Gregory Silvermaster. After acquiring this information this made it easy for Silvermaster to get out of dodge of the FBI and continue spying. Also, during the Manhattan Project, Klus Fuchs and Theodore Hall, both physicists, and technician David Greenglass transferred the compound formula for extracting bomb-grade uranium from ordinary uranium, the plans for production facilities, and the engineering principles for the “implosion” technique, which made the use of a plutonium using atomic bomb possible (Haynes, Klehr). Haynes and Klehr stated that, “Americans worried that a communist......

Do Information Media Have Social Responsibility? If Yes, in What Ways? If No, Why Not?

...• Do information media have social responsibility? If yes, in what ways? If no, why not? Yes, I think information media does or at least should have social responsibility. Generally, people rely on these types of media for information about all kinds of things. Politics, crime, natural disasters, and news in general. If an information media source inaccurately reports information, then the public is left with false information that they may perceive as truth. This could lead to issues, such as people being upset and even contacting public figures to change or even prevent things from happening, that are not actual problems. For example, in the Tool Wire lab, one of the people I communicated with mentioned a law she had heard about that would raise taxes on small businesses, effectively, putting her out of business. She stated she had heard about the law online in a podcast. She planned to contact her local representatives to stop this law. Unfortunately, she had not further researched the accuracy of that pod cast and therefore the information could have likely been false. So while she and others, were contacting the representatives, filing petitions etc. Other things could have been happening that the representative should have been addressing! Due to situations like this, I think information media needs to be responsible for what they report and how! If a source is bias, I think it needs to be up front about that. Also, all contributor or reporters need to have......

...pregnant girl, normally small of size but because of the pregnancy she perceives herself as fat in the mirror. We are not giving that much information about her looks, but she is smaller than Debbie. 2. What do you think the paperback (p. 2, 1. 5) is about? - it’s a book about pregnancy and giving birth. Julie uses the book as guidance. 3. What is in Julie´s carrier bag (see p. 3, 1. 13 - 19)? - in her well-prepared bag, Julie carries a torch, pieces of string wrapped in a piece of plastic, two pairs of knickers, a cardigan, a thick towel with an old blouse of Debbie´s, some sanitary pads and two guest towels. 4. Why does Julie feel full of trouble and worry and ill-prepared (p. 3, 1. 21)? - Julie is not sure why she feels the way she does, it could be because she´s afraid what would happen to herself and the unborn child. 5. How does Debbie earn her living? - Debbie could be a prostitute or escort, she has many “visits” from many different men, and she travels to New York with a man. Julie and Debbie have a strange relationship. It seems like Julie is relying on Debbie to take care of her as she did at first when Julie arrived to the city. Debbie always paid for Julie and taught her about life and men - from her own point of view. Debbie’s motto in life was “Take what you want and don’t pay for it” (p. 3 l. 30) but Julie knows better regardless of Debbie. Julie learned from Debbie that things cost, the value of everything, and of people, of what you did......

You know what kind of liability they face if you die while you're on status?” “Yes, I know.” “That's all they're worried about, you can tell. Always their liability-” Renee tuned out and returned her attention to the window, watching a contrail extrude itself across the sky. “Mrs. Norwood?” a nurse called. “Your husband's here.” Renee gave Mrs. Rivas another polite smile and left. 1b Carl signed his name yet another time, and finally the nurses took away the forms for processing. He remembered when he had brought Renee in to be admitted, and thought of all the stock questions at the first interview. He had answered them all stoically. “Yes, she's a professor of mathematics. You can find her in Who's Who.” “No, I'm in biology.” And: “I had left behind a box of slides that I needed.” “No, she couldn't have known.” And, just as expected: “Yes, I have. It was about twenty years ago, when I was a grad student.” “No, I tried jumping.” “No, Renee and I didn't know each other then.” And on and on. Now they were convinced that he was competent and supportive, and were ready to release Renee into an outpatient treatment program. Looking back, Carl was surprised in an abstracted way. Except for one moment, there hadn't been any sense of deja vu at any time during the entire ordeal. All the time he was dealing with the hospital, the doctors, the nurses: the......

Yes on 19

...Proposition 19 should not pass because they believe it is a poorly written bill that could cause more harm than good. However, the same was said about the United States Constitution which this nation was founded upon. The Constitution was not a perfectly written Document, but has performed as a platform for clarification with the addition of Amendments and the Bill of Rights. The passage of Proposition 19 will have the same effects. The proposition will give the nation the ability to test the legalization of marijuana on a small scale and discover flaws that need to be corrected and clarified. It is very rare to ever see something created perfect the first time and if the plan is to wait for that perfect bill, it will never happen. The only way to create something new is through trial and error, finding out what works and what does not. The passage of proposition 19 will be the first step of many in developing “the perfect bill”. Without every trying, nothing new will ever be created. People also argue that the legalization of marijuana will increase the number of users in the United States. This argument is a legitimate argument because after prohibition there was an increase in the consumption of alcohol. But with looking at the two most popular social drugs alcohol and tobacco, through the years, there have been many surges of increased use. This is due to fads, trends, and popularity of the drugs. For example smoking was very popular in the 1940’s and 1050’s due movies......

...places to be active. Where you live, learn, work and play all have a major impact on the choices you are able to make. Reversing the obesity epidemic will require individuals, families, schools, communities, businesses, government, and every other sector of American society to reduce the barriers to healthy eating and active living. Every American must have the chance to lead a healthy lifestyle. In the decade just begun, the nation has the opportunity to build on the growing momentum and set policy goals that will make healthy choices the easy choices in every neighborhood in the United States. One immediate next step should be to ensure that the disease-prevention measures in the new health reform law are implemented in smart, strategic ways to help prevent and reduce obesity. By effectively investing in proven community-based programs and policies and increasing access to preventive care, the law has the potential to greatly improve the health of millions of Americans. The recommendations in this report focus on a number of important considerations for implementation. In the past two years, however, programs and policies to prevent obesity have increased exponentially in number, strength and breadth. A new poll shows that 80 percent of Americans now recognize that obesity is a significant and growing challenge for the country.2 Furthermore, 50 percent of Americans believe that childhood obesity is such an important issue that we need to invest more to prevent it......

...emotional response in readers. Yet it is only drama that has the power to make people feel emotion in an overwhelming way. This is made evident in Synge's play Riders to the Sea. One of the characters, the mother Maurya, easily conveys a series of sorrowful emotions because of the tragedies she experiences. For example, at the beginning of the play, she is mourning the loss of her family. She feels too sad that she even has difficulty sleeping. She sleeps if she is able, Synge writes, and because we are able to see her posture, tears, and face, they are able to feel a more overwhelming response than if we were simply reading the play. Maurya's emotion also comes through at the end of the play when she grieves the loss of her sons. However, she leaves the audience on an almost hopeful note when she shares her acceptance of her lot in life. She says, No man at all can be living forever, and we must be satisfied. This sentence is intended to move the audience by helping them understand that this character will survive. Shakespeare’s Macbeth is often considered one of literature’s greatest tragedies and is said to reveal much about human nature. Do you agree or disagree that the play conveys much about humanity or about the human experience? What, if anything, does the work suggest about human beings or society? Support your views with textual details and analysis. Yes Macbeth conveys something about humanity and/or about the human experience, but what makes the play great is......
