I believe that people are a major asset for any business organization because this model describes the importance of stakeholders, leadership and employees for the organization. That is the main reason why this model would suit me. To conclude I will work hard to change and organization successfully. From this module topic I have learned that you need to plan carefully and build the proper foundation so that implementing change can be much easier and chances of success will be improved. If you are too impatient or if you expect too many results too quickly, your plans for change are more likely to
In order to control and improve our thoughts, we should know some good models. One of the good model is Critical Thinking. Understanding the meaning and applying that to the everyday life can lead to better understanding and decision making process. Workplaces can also be improved by using the critical thinking process as it has the ability to make good decisions during crucial time in business (Angelo, 2011). Critical thinking in Business Analysis Context Critical thinking is an important aspect for any business professions.
This does not exclude a quantitative approach being associated with a post-positivist approach. In contrast, for a researcher who favors interpretive, knowledge is a matter of interpretation (Schutt, 2009) so that the quest for understanding the complex world of lived experience demands that the researcher interact with the research objects/participants to get the viewpoint. The investigator favored a post-positivist approach since he believes that human knowledge can be challenged and modified in light of further investigation. Following is a description of the methodology that was followed for this
The energy contained in a Hot Spot is essentially a combination of their individual energy with the addition of the relational energy generated between them." Hence the importance of (a) having a "cooperative mindset," (b) "boundary spanners," (c) "igniting purpose," and (d) sustaining sufficient "productive capacity." Gratton acknowledges that there is much of substantial value to be learned by examining best practices in exemplary companies (e.g. BP, PgilvyOne, Nokia, and Linux)but also other types of practices, notably what she characterizes as "signature processes" which embody a given organization's character (Gratton, 2007). Sharing his extensive experience in developing Balanced Scorecards for Fortune 500, public sector, and not-for-profit organizations, Paul Niven (2002) expands on how strategy maps can be used as a powerful communication tools that convey to the entire workforce (and beyond) what is most critical in executing the organization's strategy (Elefalke, 2001).
Research philosophy Research philosophy lay down the background of how researchers understand the world, the choice of research philosophy reflect our knowledge, experiences, preconceptions, and research capability. Thus our knowledge, experiences and etc., which underpin the philosophy choice, will determine our research paradigm, strategy, design and method. (Saunders et al., 2009, p. 128-129). When Bryman describes ontology view, he introduces the objectivism and constructivism as two antithetical dimensions. (p22) However, Saunders 2009 p.119 advocates that positivism can be understood through both ontology and epistemology views.
Validity and Reliability The validity of a research examination is the characteristic that makes it credible and attests to the rigour that was performed. The validity of the study involves about their purposes and logical consistency between its constituents. Validity and reliability are fundamentally two main components in a research which plays a perilous role. When dependability and impartiality is coordinated to a high level then at that point the reliability and validity of the qualitative study are better enhanced and assumed (Saunders, Lewis, & Thornhill, Research Methods for Business Students, 2009). It is observed that this exploration is dependable since its literature are immaculately utilised and investigation procedures are consummately used for the valuation of the study.
“Often the right answer is self-evident and undisputed" (David J. Snowden and Mary E. Boone, 2007, A Leader’s Framework for Decision Making for Harvard Business Review). Assessment of the situation, categorizing possible responses and responding appropriately are required to handle these issues. "Simple contexts, properly assessed, require straightforward management and monitoring. Here, leaders sense, categorize, and respond. That is, they assess the facts of the situation, categorize them, and then base their response on established practice."
The categories and concepts are grounded in the data, which gives them validity in the real world, but the interpretation and construction of theory results from the researcher's interaction with the data. In grounded theory, the researcher is encouraged to develop some level of abstraction, objectivity and sensitive to words and statements throughout the research process (Patton, 1990). It is therefore worth considering grounded theory methodology for examining managerial
This provided us with more opportunities, but most importantly the opportunity to change our study so it would become an investigation of the topic. Thereby the social reality was not necessarily fixed, and we could investigate the topic and the conflicts of interest differently. Using interpretivism we were able to understand the human behavior instead of just making an explanation of it. By not having settled the reality behind the conflict of interest, we were also able to investigate the existence of human behavior and to what extent. When changing our epistemological approach, it also enabled us to change our research strategy and approach to the research, as well as the types of data used in our project
This role and the past roles that I have held have required me to implement and develop leadership and management skills. I have been responsible for ensuring the smooth operation of Information Technology (IT) activities, in addition to being responsible and accountable for a team of individuals. I am pursuing a formal business education in order to complement my technical background with the necessary knowledge and tools to lead an innovative technological company to success. I strongly believe that pursuing a PGD at the Graduate School of Business Leadership (SBL) will surely make a strong contribution to my career advancement. The history of the school, the tradition, legacy and the alumni network have influenced me in making a decision of where I would like to do my PGD.
