The position of District Manager at Goodall Canada is held by Pat Greene. Pat is an effective manager. To make things happen he must implement various managerial skills on a daily basis.

Goodall Canada is a company that specializes in manufacturing and distributing hydraulic and industrial hoses and fittings. There are branches coast to coast, serving many industries. Goodall has social responsibilities. Goodall must consistently operate efficiently and profitably (economic). Working in conjunction with safety officers, accounting and legal departments management must ensure the company is complying with all of society’s laws and regulations (legal). There is a responsibility to ensure the company and its ambassadors conduct business in an ethical manner in accordance with the stakeholders’ view of what is right and wrong. Some of the primary stakeholders include: employees, suppliers and customers. Secondary stake holders include: NAHAD (National Association for Hose and Accessory Distribution) and Occupational Health and Safety (since hazardous materials are conveyed using Goodall’s products). It can be challenging appeasing various stakeholders. Virtually every decision made could potentially affect all stakeholders.

The District Manager role has elements of three of the different types of managers. There are elements of top-management, because Pat has been instrumental in creating a positive culture. He is also involved with goal-setting and planning. Middle-management because he sets objectives, plans and allocates resources. Since he supervises and directs non-managerial employees there are elements of first line management. Despite having elements of different types of managers, Pat’s job is officially considered a middle management position.

Simply stated Pat’s job is to make things happen. Planning often begins with monitoring…...

...Executive Summary Unicord, a Thailand-based, seafood-related conglomerate, which purchased the American subsidiary Bumble Bee in order to gain better access to the American and global market has recently encountered significant difficulties not only in terms of growth and expansion but also sales and profits. Main alternatives involve maintaining the status quo, divesting of the Bumble Bee operations or changing the approach of the organization. It is recommended that the company should pursue the third option. That is, it should decentralize decision-making, which would allow for Bumble Bee to be a more self-sufficient operation; it should not make use of purse-seine fishing techniques, which capture not only tuna but also dolphins; and it should market itself as a premiere, ecologically-friendly brand. This would cost the company more, however, it would also position Unicord in the market as an environmentally-conscious, efficient organization, which can and should increase profitability Problem Statement The main problem is that Unicord’s subsidiary Bumble Bee, and the company as a whole, is in significant difficulty concerning loss of sales as well as debt. This, of course, is rooted in a number of related problems, such as the political, environmental, technological, social/cultural and economic problems that the company faces. For example, in terms of Bumble Bee, the company must deal with the issue of Unicord as a foreign investor, which raises a number of......

...Memorandum Date: September 15, 2012 To: Interested Parties From: Kimberly Gipson Re: Subject: Donor Organ Recipient I have made my decision to give the donor organ to Jerry. The reason I have chosen Jerry is because he has the least amount of time remaining before his condition caused them death. I made the decision based on my medical opinion of who is going to benefit the most from the transplant. It was a very difficult decision to come up with, but I finally concluded that all three patients deserve the transplant but the most one who deserves it was Jerry. Even though, Lisa is only 12 years of age I had to take into consideration that she has had life-long health issue and this transplant is not a guarantee of resolving her life-long health issue. Now Ozzy on the other hand, I took into consideration that he was a drug abuser. With that being said I thought about would he change his life if he was given the heart transplant or will he continue to abuse drugs. Once I took all the different possible into consideration; the ethical terms, I have decided to give the transplant to Jerry, I found him to be the more deserving one. I look at the example of the utilitarian ethical philosophy of John Stuart Mill and Jeremy Bentham in which they claim that the best course of action is the one that leads to maximum satisfaction and happiness. The consequences of an action would determine if the action should be taken or not taken. So the morality of an action...

...ntroduction Structures designs are important for smooth operation in any organizations. In the history of organizational design, there are three traditional and three contemporary designs most well-known to the world. This essay will discuss all these six designs and its evolution pattern with extra attention to the use of team in each design. Theories Three traditional organizational designs include function structure, divisional structural and matrix structure. Functional structure puts groups related to similar functions together. Divisional structure divides different product lines into different business unit. In matrix structure, employees from different function department are forming a contemporary team to handle a project. Three contemporary organizational designs include team structure, project structure, and boundary less structure. In team structure, organization is made up of teams without particular dividing. Project structure need assigning employees to contemporary teams on different projects. Teams are dismissed as soon as the project is done. Boundary less structure is a structure without clear line between up and down, inside and outside. Example Pizza Hut is using a functional design. It is divided into seven major department including operation, finance, people, marketing and etc. It is used to achieve high efficiency in relatively simple and routine business environment.

Steve Dinham, Manager and Co Owner of Canadian Business 895084952RC00001 or better known as Sam’s Monkey Tree Pub, Diamantes Restaurant, and Diamantes Catering, is truly a jack-of-all-trades. Strategic planning (food/liquor/dry goods orders), organization (scheduling, staffing), effective leadership (working the floor with the staff), and control (staying on target with budgets, communications, sales) with his business partner, employees, and suppliers are all a crucial part of the day-to-day operations needed for these businesses’ success. Yellowknife, A small city located in Canada's Northwest Territories, is home to this growing hospitality food and beverage company. Yellowknife’s remote, albeit unique environment can be unforgiving when the cold winter months arrive; with blustering temperatures as cold as -60 degrees Celsius for several weeks at a time. During the challenging winter months, resource allocation and the ability to receive product shipments from southern Canada become the primary concern for businesses; as there are limited alternatives should an order not arrive on time, or even worse, arrive frozen solid and are deemed unusable. A city comprised of a primarily resource based economy, has suffered due to the volatility of the commodity market. The economic......
