The authors conclude that empowerment is a good strategy for organizations in both high and low power-distance societies (Fock, Hui, Au & Bond, 2013). One of the biggest issues that the CDC faces is conflicting values. The CDC arguably has two dominant cultures, adhocracy and hierarchy. The bureaucratic structure of the CDC (a government organization) forces the core value of the CDC to fall under hierarchy, however the mission value states that the CDC values scientific research and exploration which describes an adhocracy (De Cock, 2012). Communicating the importance of hierarchical values to the
In his essay, Emmett Rensin utilizes real-world examples in order to trigger emotion in his audience and solidify his argument as the truth. While this essay does not often utilize the rhetorical appeal of ethos, an amount of credibility can be distinguished from Rensin 's position as a liberal writer. In his argument, he highlights three major faults found commonly amongst liberal masses: the knowing, the judgement, and the hate. While all three faults are internally linked, each has its own significant blemish on the liberal image. While he does not directly state his audience, one can assume that Rensin wrote not only to call the offending liberals out for their errors, but also to inform a younger audience in order to evoke change within the liberal community.
Discuss how you would assess the risk of the student records system of a large university. Give your university a creative name. Student and staff records in educational institutions are valuable. Colleges and universities have a reputation of weaker data security, making them susceptible to data loss. Data loss could cause reputational damage and possible financial penalties for large universities.
Syme often uses his credibility to explain to Winston why he is right and the destruction of words is the most magnificent process. Because he works in the ____ department rewriting dictionaries, Syme establishes his credibility as someone who knows more on the subject, so to Winston, he must be correct. Although Winston writes in Newspeak on a daily basis, Syme accuses Winston of not grasping the beauty of Newspeak: "In your heart you 'd prefer to stick to Old-speak, with all its vagueness and its useless shades of meaning." According to Orwell, Syme posses more knowledge on Newspeak, therefore, the destruction of words is for the better. The more destruction, the more beauty it brings.
6. What are the primary strengths and weaknesses of the book? The primary strength of this book is how much organizational theory has largely sanitized the notion of evil, also creating more inherent characteristics of modern organizations that allows evil to be administratively sanitized, accepted as rational and proper in terms of efficiency and the masking may be inadvertent. The weakness of this book is that precision on when the virtues of modern administrative practices will be realized without encouraging administrative evil. 7.
Legalism was an organization of authentic virtue. Legalism reiterate rules, or a set of laws, to order the society. Confucianism was the contradictory, disturbed with practice and also fairness, though it took it for fortunate that authority contained predominance of men over women, the ancient over the adolescents and the knowledgeable over laborers and artisans. Confucianism has advanced into a complicated and expansive structure that cover China’s civilization, principles, government, and etc. Authority was utterly valuable.
Two dystopian works that we have studied this semester were a bit more enchanting than rest of the works according to me. George Orwell’s “Nineteen Eighty-Four” and Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World” have tried to explain the state of affairs running in our world. In order to understand the dystopian thinking, people should definitely notice the two utterly different ways of dystopian approaches of Orwell’s and Huxley’s. After reading “Nineteen Eighty- Four” and “Brave New World” or watching the books’ adapted movies, we can see that while Orwell feared that the government will restrict books, Huxley feared that there will be no demand to read a single book. In “Nineteen Eighty-Four”, the community was dominated by exposing pain, the other way round, in “Brave New World”, the society was dominated by exposing pleasure.
Trowler (2010) recent literature review on student engagement identifies and defines engagement as being concerned with: “the interaction between the time, effort and other relevant resources invested by both students and their institutions intended to optimise their student experience and enhance the learning outcomes and development of students and their performance, and reputation of the institution” (p.3) Trowler reminds us of how important student is in terms of equality and social justice. Harper and Quaye (2009) cited in Trowler et al (p.13) were very clear when they said that institutions need to strategize of ways to increase student engagement from a diverse group of students, especially for those whom engagement is seen
Teachers are being placed in the center of how schools function and are being asked to aid in crucial decisions about the academic direction of the school (Warren, 2016). Research by York-Barr and Duke (2004), states “teacher leadership roles range from assisting with the management of schools to evaluating educational initiatives and facilitating professional learning communities” (p. 1). While teacher leadership is evolving, the perceptions that teachers have regarding themselves as leaders has not truly been uncovered. This literature review is an attempt to highlight the research surrounding teacher leadership. It begins with the foundations of teacher leadership which includes the history of teacher leadership, the evolving definition of teacher leadership, and finally a summary of current teacher leadership development programs.
He deems their search for what a society is as “productive in the time of Comte, Spencer, Durkheim, or Parsons, [but] now [. . . ] disastrous.” One reason for this change in terminology and direction of research might be found in the different technological environments: Just as the division of labor created by the industries and bureaucracies helped Durkheim and Weber to trace their own definitions of social links, information technologies help us realize the work going on in actor-making. Another aspect of the sociology of the social which Latour wants to overcome in his approach is the division between the natural and the social which he conceives as “a complete artifact”.
