Module 2 – Organizing and Describing Data
Written Assignment 2 - In your own words, interpret the data and note the shape of the distribution of the data provided from Case Study: World's Richest People (Chapter 2, p. 36).

Sample | Category | Frequency per Category | Rel. frequency per category (%) | Citizenship | Mexico | 1 | 4.00% | | United States | 14 | 56.00% | | Spain | 1 | 4.00% | | Hong Kong | 2 | 8.00% | | France | 2 | 8.00% | | Sweden | 1 | 4.00% | | Germany | 1 | 4.00% | | India | 1 | 4.00% | | Italy | 1 | 4.00% | | Canada | 1 | 4.00% |

From the frequency distribution table listed above, the country with the largest amount of the world’s richest people is the United States with 56% of the world’s richest people. It also shows that of the countries that have one of the world’s richest people, 7 out of 10 of the counties only have 1 of the richest in each country. Stem-and-Leaf Plot | | | Unit: | 1 | | | 0 | | 1 | | 2 | | 3 | 9 | 4 | 09 | 5 | 5678 | 6 | 345589 | 7 | 133779 | 8 | 2458 | 9 | 03 |

Using the stem-and-leaf plot above you can see that the age range with the most of the world’s richest people is 60-79 years old. This plot also shows you a left skewed distribution. Also in a stem-and-leaf plot you can see the specific ages in the prominent age range that hosts the most individuals in the world’s richest people category.

Using a histogram shows the view of the data and what type of distribution is used. A stem-and-leaf plot starts at 1 and moves up to 9 showing a distinct right skew. A histogram begins with the fist age range in which the youngest individuals fall in to. This plot shows a left skewed distribution however it is harder to see. You can also see the range of 60 to 79 year old people have the most number of world’s richest and based on the United State having…...

Case Study General Managment Principles

...Case Study #1 Honor the Cost of Philanthropy I believe that there are many scenarios and situations in business that require flexing the rules occasionally. The executive that is handling the Bosnia contract has done what he needs to do to ensure that his company delivers the product as promised. But, with such a small net profit on the kits, it leaves you to wonder just how much free flowing cash is going into each truck? Who is tracking the money? Who decides what the correct amount is? I would approach the executive and discuss the full ramifications of what he is doing and get his side of the story before making any decisions but there may be long term political or legal ramifications to both of your decisions. You must look at the cost ramifications within this transaction. Will it end up costing the corporation money in the long run to continue delivering the kits? If the kits only yield a small profit for the company, than a decision must be made of what is more important to the executive and the company. Does he continue to provide much needed medicine to the people of Bosnia or possibly risk the lives of their truck drivers as well as the individuals who require that medicine? The Militia is another variable within this scenario. In the future they may raise the cost of admission between each checkpoint and that will put the executive in charge in a very challenging situation. Before moving forward initially, the executive would have had to do some research......

Precision World Wide Case Study

...manufacturing the plastic rings but that something needed to be done with the steel rings. Henk, the sales manager insisted that they needed to stop the steel rings once the plastic ones were available. He argued that if customers found out that they had bought the steel ones instead of the plastic ones it could have a negative effect on the company’s sales. Thorborg, general manager, knew that if they continued with the production and sale of steel rings, about 15,100 rings would be left by mid-September. He remembered that during the next 2 or 3 weeks the plant would not be working at full capacity. He wondered if workers could work on converting the steel inventory to rings on the slack time. .

Case Study Bridging the Two Worlds-the Organizational Dilemma

...MGT 2383.1C and WW: Potential Final Exam Cases December 2013 1. Buddy’s Snack Company Buddy’s Snack Company is a family owned company located in the Rocky Mountains. Buddy Forest started the business in 1951 by selling homemade potato chips out of the back of his pickup truck. Nowadays Buddy’s is a $36 million snack food company that is struggling to regain market share lost to Frito-Lay and other fierce competitors. In the early eighties, Buddy passed the business onto his son, Buddy, Jr., who is currently grooming his son, Mark, to succeed himself as head of the company. Six months ago, Mark joined Buddy’s Snacks as a salesperson and after four months was quickly promoted to sales manager. Mark recently graduated from a local university with an M.B.A. in Marketing, and Buddy Jr. was hoping that Mark would be able to implement strategies that could help turn the company around. One of Mark’s initial strategies was to introduce a new sales performance management system. As part of this approach, any salesperson who receives a below average performance rating would be required to attend a mandatory coaching session with his/her supervisor. Mark Forest is hoping that these coaching sessions will motivate his employees to increase their sales. This case describes the reaction of three salespeople who have been required to attend a coaching session because of their low performance over the previous quarter. Lynda Lewis Lynda is a hard worker who takes pride in her work ethic.......

Dp World Uae - Case Study

...Introduction to the case The case that was chosen is from a company called DP World, within the IT Department where a violation of a security policy has left the IT Security team to choose between two strategies on how to go about it. The first would be to let the employee who violated the company off with a verbal warning and not document what has occurred due to it being their first offence. The second strategy would be to follow the policy that indicates that they need to issue a warning letter to the employees who have violated the policy. Either strategy is an option that the IT Security is willing to take and therefore they have decided to take the first which is to inform the user of what they have done without any formal documentation, this strategy was affective in raising awareness to the employees that what they have done is strictly not prohibited in the company as well as the employees knowing that the IT Security team will be watching them. However this strategy seemed to backfire when one employee repeatedly violated another policy similar to the first once again, causing the IT Security to think about the strategy that they original used and how ineffective it was before resorting to the more appropriate one. This case handles an issue in which a policy was broken and as a result the penalty policy wasn’t followed therefore it resulted in a larger issue that occurred later on.

Case Study: Women in World War Two

...Case Study: Women in World War Two After reading on these eight women I have chosen to do my compare and contrast from this Library of Congress Exhibition of Women in World War II story which was detailed with photography to tell their stories; for others to not only read their story, but to experience it through visual documentation. These three women, Toni Frissell, Esther Bubley and Therese Bonney were able to connect with millions of people through their images that they documented. From Toni Frissell’s pictures you were able to see how a nurse performed her duties, the actions of soldiers on the front lines, children who were made instant orphans as a result of war and the daily struggles of African-Americans and Women in the war. Esther Bubbley’s pictures were centered on life back home around people doing their part for the war effort, life in the nation’s capital. Therese Bonney’s pictures were really felt with her touching on how the damage of war affected innocent adults and children who were left homeless and struggle to find food and shelter. Therese Bonney’s mission was to tell truth of what she say through her words and pictures, with the hope that it would make others see the reality of war from a personal point of view. She had felt that World War II was a threat to European Civilization and this was her way to show the depth behind her words. On the other hand Esther Bubbley thought it more prudent to focus on the American side and show how the......

Case Study - the Personality of Hr People

...Basa, Adrian Contreras, Jules Duke Demeterio, Jaykee Ramiro Fernando, Arnold Vincent MGT 104 Case Studies The Personality of HR People Case Questions: Q1. If you were an HR specialist, which category would you prefer to be and why? Our group would prefer the consummate professional. (The Consummate Professional according to Wilson (2013) is usually coming from a confused lower middle class family background and may describe themselves as working class. Became aware early that life was unfair. Brought up to respect authority, parents became anxious when exam results were not as expected. Feels honoured by the challenging projects given to them by the company, but confused as to why reward involves being given more challenges to deal with.) We can observe on how experiences would play its role and have influences in shaping personality. Personalities can either be gained through genes or by the influences of the outside environment. We could infer that consummate professionals, as stated above, have undergone such life experiences which molded the person to think that life is unfair which means that that he/she will strive to work hard since that person’s past experiences gave him/her the knowledge on how one should survive in the society, for instance, when one does not work hard, he/she would not gain respect and would not be able to obtain the fruits of life which will lead to one’s struggle. We preferred the consummate professional over the three other......

Are they helpful to the company’s leaders in formulating strategic intent? Why or why not? Better World books has a very unique and intuitive vision in my opinion, they have found a way to make a huge profit from something that is basically is an environmental issue. Their mission is clear, they want to be the company all other companies model their companies after. They are starting a movement in which all other companies should try and emulate to be, which is a great idea because there is no cost for the books that they acquire, and at the same time turn around and make a positive impression on the earths environment and multiple communities around the world. They have taken their love for books and reading and found a way to be environmentally conscious while still creating a successful company that makes profits and bring literacy to people all over the world. Better World Books make many smart moves as a business; they invest well, and waste not. I believe that Better World Books have an ideal business blueprint that many companies can model and be financially successful while still being conscious about how you do business. 2.

Ipr Campaign Case Study: “Best Job in the World”

...has been defined as a “concerted effort of an organization to build socially responsible relationships by achieving research-based goals through the application of communication strategies and the measurement of outcomes” (Kendall 1996, p.3). This paper examines the value of the modern-day IPR practice through a case study from an overwhelmingly successful IPR campaign ‘Best Job in the World’ sponsored by Tourism Queensland, Australia. Firstly, the research methodology will be introduced. Secondly, an introduction of the campaign will be sketched. In the third section of the paper, the analysis of the campaign is structured in three subitems with theoretical references. In the following section, a post-hoc evaluation tries to examine the case through a logical model. Lastly, by drawing from the previous analysis and evaluation, the paper exposes the findings in the values of modern-day IPR campaign. Research Methodology When considering what research methodology is appropriate and shall be adopted in the course of analyzing and evaluating this IPR campaign, it is important to understand the patterns and attributes of the study case. In view of the ‘Best job in the world’ IPR campaign is a typical model of modern-day IPR campaign, which is different from traditional PR campaign in terms of the PR strategies, execution and communication channels. Therefore, research methods correspondingly adopted contrastive analysis and evaluation in a literature review in accordance with......

Sodexo and Principle Financial Group Case Study

...Sodexo and Principle Financial Group Case Study MGT/312 June 22, 2015 Gregory Lucht Sodexo and Principle Financial Group Case Study 1. What are some of the ways that Sodexo effectively manages diversity? Diversity Inc. constructed a list of 440 companies, and of the top fifty Sodexo was ranked number one (George & Jones, 2012, Chapter 4). Sodexo is considered the best company to work for minorities, women, veterans, and people with disabilities and the LGBT community. Diversity and inclusion are critical to the success of an organization through efficiency and effectiveness. Being that a business in any market is competitive, it is important for companies to embrace diverse employees who can provide the company with different perspectives, cultures, and solutions. Sodexo manages diversity through conducting mentoring programs, diversity training, various encouragement, and interaction. Different groups are constructed by managers that consisted of those unlike themselves to provide a place for people who share similar feelings and beliefs to come together. Employees can interact through these affinity groups that will increase cohesiveness, trust, and performance. Though Sodexo encourages managers to construct mentor groups they are also trained to assess the groups in regards to effectiveness (George & Jones, 2012, Chapter 4). “ twenty-five percent of top managers’ bonuses are based on how well they do on diversity initiatives such as the hiring and......

Case Study : People V Perkins

...Napolitano Term Paper Dennis Consumano People v Perkins On July 26th, 2010 , Perkins had been charged with six offenses. They were: Driving While Intoxicated, Driving While Ability Impaired, Resisting Arrest, Unlawful Fleeing a Police Officer in a Motor Vehicle in the Third Degree, Reckless Driving and Driving at an Excessive Speed. Over the next two years, Perkins appeared in New York Court 25 different times. Perkins had traveled from her home in North Carolina each time. The People had answered “not ready” on many occasions. This, of course, goes against one of the CPLs we covered; CPL 30.30, which deals with speedy trial time limitations, in particular section (1)(b) which states “(b) ninety days of the commencement of a criminal action wherein a defendant is accused of one or more offenses, at least one of which is a misdemeanor punishable by a sentence of imprisonment of more than three months and none of which is a felony” (Findlaw). March 22nd, 2012, four misdemeanor charges were dismissed on the grounds of CPL 30.30. The remaining two traffic infractions, however, were not dismissed. That is, until July 24th, 2012, when Perkins motioned to dismiss these remaining two charges. Citing, more specifically, CPL 30.20 which deals with speedy trials in general. Perkins claims that, this 90 day limitation is now two years, and her right to a speedy trial has been violated. Being that the delays were all caused by the People, at the expense of Perkins, who has......

The World of People

...Many consumers and social advocates believe that businesses should not only make a profit but also consider the social implications of their activities. We define social responsibility as a business’s obligation to maximize its positive impact and minimize its negative impact on society. Although many people use the terms social responsibility and ethics interchangeably, they do not mean the same thing. Business ethics relates to an individual’s or a work group’s decisions that society evaluates as right or wrong, whereas social responsibility is a broader concept that concerns the impact of the entire business’s activities on society. From an ethical perspective, for ex- ample, we may be concerned about a health care organization or practitioner over- charging the provincial government for medical services. From a social responsibility perspective, we might be concerned about the impact that this overcharging will have on the ability of the health care system to provide adequate services for all citizens. The most basic ethical and social responsibility concerns have been codified as laws and regulations that encourage businesses to conform to society’s standards, values, and attitudes. At a minimum, managers are expected to obey these laws and regula- tions. Most legal issues arise as choices that society deems unethical, irresponsible, or otherwise unacceptable. However, all actions deemed unethical by society are not nec- essarily illegal, and both legal and ethical......

Iggy’s Bread of the World Case Study Symbolic Assessment

...Iggy’s Bread of the World Case Study Symbolic Assessment Company Human Symbolic Frame Assessment All organizations have some degree of symbolic life with Bolman and Deal referring to this as an organization’s cultural tapestry and state (Bolman and Deal, 2013). Furthermore the symbolic frame, drawing on social and cultural anthropology, treats organizations as temples, theaters, or carnivals (Bolman and Deal, 2013). It abandons assumptions of rationality more prominent in other frames. It sees organizations as cultures, propelled more by rituals, ceremonies, stories, heroes, and myths than by rules, policies, and managerial authority (Bolman and Deal, 2013). Organizations can be viewed as theaters where actors or employees play their roles in the organizational drama while audiences or customers form impressions from what is seen onstage or in business practices (Bolman and Deal, 2013). However, problems arise when actors or employees blow their parts, when symbols lose their meaning, or when ceremonies and rituals lose their effectiveness (Bolman and Deal, 2013.) Iggy and Ludmilla’s bakery established itself as a symbolic organization right away (Grendon and McGinn, 2001). It set a standard of values, attitudes, beliefs, expectations, and organizational norms right away (Grendon and McGinn, 2001). Iggy and Ludmilla established a sense of pride and accomplishment along with personal responsibility for all employees to maintain......
