This paper will analyze the strategic issues that guided TB Majestic Air now known as Trans-Caribbean Airways business decisions. As a team, we integrated the findings of strategic, environmental, and core business function while providing input in our decision making and planning. We used the results from our Period 4 to reassess previous decisions such as increasing our budget from $7,500 to $10,000 and increasing our maintenance level from 2 to 3 to operate at an optimum level in accordance with the size of our fleet. Lastly, our team made a decision venture into joint-venture with a major airline that allows all of our market to be listed with their computerized reservations system and schedules, permits for better scheduling for our
Top supervisors make decisions for the company. In Boeing, authority trickles down from top to bottom e.g. From CEO, CFO, COO to President & Vice President and from President & Vice President to department heads. RESOURCES: Boeing undertook a series of strategic acquisitions to broaden its portfolio that included McDonnell Douglas, the space and defense business of Rockwell Intl., and Hughes Space & Communications. Due to the nature of the defense industry, Boeing occasionally forms teams with other companies that are competitors e.g. Lockheed martin in order to provide customers with the best mix of capabilities to address specific requirements.
3.3 Radar Logic Figure 3 EFQM Radar logic graphic representation Figure 3 above shows the EFQM RADAR logic and the four steps needed to achieve it. An organisation using the EFQM framework needs to look at the Results it is striving to achieve and make sure the strategy is on course to realise them. An organisation should have a sound set of Approaches that can deliver the desired effects for its business both in the present and in the future.
Another socio-cultural factor is the fear of terrorist attacks. Example would be the recent ISIS attacks in France, Russia etc. With terrorist bombing, airline companies are affected by the number of passengers traveling overseas. This could cause a drastic change to Rolls Royce’s income. Urban countries that are affected by overcrowding of air-craft are asking for larger aircraft as larger aircrafts are more powerful.
Consequently, Ryanair in order to efficiently handle thousands of passengers daily it is necessary to use highly standardised services (Barnes, 2008, p.189). Additionally, Ryanair chooses to operate mass services process aiming to achieve economies of scale in order to maximise the margins. Figure 1 – The Service Process
As scheduling allows, RADM Midgette looks forward to underway/flight time with operational units to familiarize himself with the unit’s AOR, observe operations, view critical infrastructure, and allow the crew to demonstrate their professional competency. These opportunities are dependent upon unit operational tempo, weather, resource availability, and the overall schedule. b. If your unit has an underway or flight opportunity in which you believe would be interesting please let me know. Also, please be prepared to provide appropriate PPE for the environmental conditions.
Many leaders, both ground and aviation, recognized the need for aviation planning abilities at the BCT level. The BAE would be able to provide well rounded aviators and enlisted aviation personnel that can assist ground forces in full spectrum aviation operations. The structure has changed since 2006 as the BAE continues to evolve to meet the demands of the current fight. As a basis, each BAE will have a Brigade Aviation Officer, a BAE Plans Officer, an Aviation Tactical Operations Officer, an Aviation Operations Sergeant, and an Aviation Operations Specialist (Headquarters Department of the Army, Army Training Circular 1-400, 2006). The duties that each of these personnel will have are largely dictated by the mission.
Understanding: Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Information Operations J6 is responsible for transformation and sustainment of the Information Operations mission and its associated commitment to the warfighting logistician. Inherent in doing so is the responsibility to ensure a comprehensive, best practices Information Assurance (IA) plan to provide the best Information Technology (IT) support to the Department of Defense (DOD), DLA business community, stakeholders, subordinate units and the warfighting logistician. The Risk Management Framework (RMF) replaces the DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) and manages the lifecycle cybersecurity risk to DoD IT in accordance with DoD Instruction (DoDI) 8510.01 I
