Smith has spent his career thinking about how people think. The frame of this model is divided in 7 levels from easy to impossible.
LEVEL 1 Effectiveness—Doing the right things
Level 1 changes are about starting a new habit. Change is about doing the right things and being effective. The right things are pretty much the right things everywhere, but still these are incremental changes that you have to go through.
TOOLS:
1. WRITE IT DOWN. Writing down the ideas is doing the right thing. Ideas are everywhere, in magazines, books, newspaper. Wenger on his book said that…...

...CASE: SEVEN ELEVEN JAPAN Executive Summary I Executive Summary The goal of this case is to analyze how a firm can be successful by structuring its supply chain to support its supply chain strategy. Once Seven-Eleven Japan decided to provide responsiveness by rapid replenishment, it then structured its facilities, inventory, information, and distribution to support this choice. The case also brings up the question of whether the same approach can work in the United States, especially given the greater distances and lower store density.

Unanticipated and Unexpected Price Level Changes

... 1 Unanticipated or Unexpected Price Level Changes Shafonia Johnson Grantham University Running head: UNANTICIPATED OR UNEXPECTED 2 Unanticipated or Unexpected Price Level Changes The three reasons a lower price level leads to an increase of goods and services are an increase in the purchasing power of money, reduction in the demand for money and lower real interest rate and the making domestic produced goods less expensive (Gwartney, Stroup, Sobel & Macpherson,, 2013, p. 177). With an unexpected 3 percent fall in the price level in the goods and services market consumers’ money will increase in purchase power. Consumers will have the opportunity to purchase more and be wealthier. This is with the assumption that “the supply of money is fixed” (Gwartney, et al, 2013, p. 177). Therefore, this power will enable the purchase of more goods and services. The lower price level reduces the demand for money and lowers interest rates. Allowing consumers and businesses to have a smaller amount of money in the bank and still have everything they need. In retrospect businesses will need less money to sustain employee wages, pay taxes and any other business needs. This lower price level gives better opportunity to obtain assets that have high returns. Consumers will be able to......

...history.[10][11] Herodotus, a 5th-century BC Greek historian is considered within the Western tradition to be the "father of history", and, along with his contemporary Thucydides, helped form the foundations for the modern study of human history. Their work continues to be read today and the divide between the culture-focused Herodotus and the military-focused Thucydides remains a point of contention or approach in modern historical writing. In the Eastern tradition, a state chronicle the Spring and Autumn Annals was known to be compiled from as early as 722 BC although only 2nd century BC texts survived. Ancient influences have helped spawn variant interpretations of the nature of history which have evolved over the centuries and continue to change today. The modern study of history is wide-ranging, and includes the study of specific regions and the study of certain topical or thematical elements of historical investigation. Often history is taught as part of primary and secondary education, and the academic study of history is a major discipline in University studies....

The Seven Guitars

...Tamber Taylor Intro to Theatre Matthew Davis October 15, 2013 Seven Guitars The Seven Guitars follows a storyline of African American friends who came together after their friend, Floyd “Schoolboy Barton, is murdered unexpectedly. Together, they reminisce about Floyd’s short life and discover the desires and underlying spirit that live within each of them. Floyd is the central character of the Seven Guitars. Floyd dreams of becoming a famous and wealthy blues singer. However, due to his bad attitude, criminal record, and selfishness his life is cut short. Floyd is killed by Hedley. Hedley means well, but he is a very unstable person. Throughout the play, Hedley successfully portrayed his character. Through the universal qualities of energy, purpose, and control, Hedley presented an outstanding character. Hedley hopes to become a “big man.” He wants to be a great leader. However, he does not realize that is not possible because of the time period. Racism plays a role in Hedley’s failures, directly and indirectly. Hedley stated, “I am going to buy me a big plantation. The white man not going to tell me what to do.” In this scene, Hedley is very head strong. His stage presence was profound. The audience could feel that Hedley was determined to be a powerful black man. The simple facial expression he gave told the story of his endeavors. In addition, Hedley was an older guy. He was sort of slumped over, but when he wanted to get his point across, his movements were......

...their value and the growth for the company. “For example, 7-Eleven’s staff cannot answer “I don’t know” for their consumers’ question. They should say ‘Could you wait me for a while, I’ll check it’, or ‘Can I ask your phone number? I’ll contact you if I know the result’” (Chen, 2006). They also have seven technical words which should say if they meet the consumers such as regular greetings, please watch your step, and take care. We can see the 7-Eleven’s personal management is really detailed which increase their work efficiency; also their regulation requires staff to be precise in work and have the right behavior toward the consumers. Such 7-Eleven’s management may lead to the consumers’ satisfaction. Staff training and evaluation are also the important part of 7-Eleven’s internal management. 7-Eleven has three training center in Taiwan such as Taipei, Taizhong, and Kaoshiung, where trains the new staff’s knowledge, attitude, skills, and abilities. “The new staffs take training classes for the first four and a half day and one left to do retail sales practice”(Chen, 2006). In addition, “7-Eleven training materials are renewed in every six months” which we can see 7-Eleven changes their management manual depends on the society condition or people’s need. As to managers' training and evaluation of promotions, “the 80% to 90% of 7-Eleven’s senior management employees were raised from the basic unit staff to be promoted” (Chen, 2006). For example, if a graduate college......

Seven Habits

...Habits of Highly Effective People, author Stephen R. Covey presents an integrated and principle-centered approach for solving personal and professional issues and problems. Covey uses real life examples as well as his own experience to reveal a systematic way for living with integrity, honesty, and self-respect. In the book, he explains principles that give someone the comfort to adapt to change and the wisdom to take control and full advantage of the opportunities that the business world and personal lives create. This book seems very useful and I found a few habits that I plan to adopt and work at including in my everyday life. They are basic things in everyday life that can make things easier, more efficient, and better for everyone not just myself. They do not necessarily need to be used every second of my day but if I can employ them as often as possible, I can improve myself. Seventh habit is one of them it is about personal renewal, bringing your greatest asset back into top operating condition. What asset is that? You are the common denominator of every aspect of your life. The seven habit is about one of renewal and continual improvement that is of building one's personal capability. To be effective, one must find the proper balance between actually doing and improving one's capability to do that which you value.In the business environment, synergy occurs when two or more businesses or resources come together to make a greater impact than they would......

The Change in Monetary Policy and Cash Rate to Effect Price Level Instance.

...determined by the demand for money (Md) and the supply of money (Ms) The price level is a measure of the value of money. A rise in the price level means a lower value of money and a fall in the price level means a higher value of money. When there is higher inflation, the price level will change fast and unit of account will also change and vice versa. According to the article, post-Tet, demand in rice market declined, thus people spent less money to buy rice. Therefore, there is a decrease in money supply. Based on the article, before Tet holiday, 21.027 VND (Vietnam Dong) can exchange to US $1. However, in March, post- Tet, Vietnamese just needs 20.943 VND to exchange to US $1. Hence, the value of VND is higher. (Vietnam Index fells 0.4% which means 20.943 + (20.943*0.4%) = 21.027VND) The inflation rate decreases which leads to the price level change slowly. The price fell 0.19% after Tet holiday. There is a decrease in money supply that shifts the money supply curve to the left (Ms1 to Ms2). Quantity of money demanded (Q1) is larger than quantity of money supplied (Q2). Therefore, there is a shortage of money at the initial price level (P1) equals to CA in the graph above. The decreases the demand for rice as people is short of money with them. This decreases the price level (fall 0.19%) and raises the value of money (21.027 VND declined to 20.943 VND). The decrease in price level from P1 to P2 in turn decreases the quantity of money demanded Q1 to Q2 so......

Once Seven-Eleven Japan decided to provide responsiveness by rapid replenishment, it then structured its facilities, inventory, information, and distribution to support this choice. The case also brings up the question of whether the same approach can work in the United States, especially given the greater distances and lower store density. Questions 1. A CONVENIENCE STORE CHAIN ATTEMPTS TO BE RESPONSIVE AND PROVIDE CUSTOMERS WHAT THEY NEED, WHEN THEY NEED IT, WHERE THEY NEED IT. WHAT ARE SOME DIFFERENT WAYS THAT A CONVENIENCE STORE SUPPLY CHAIN CAN BE RESPONSIVE? WHAT ARE SOME RISKS IN EACH CASE? As responsiveness increases, the convenience store chain is exposed to greater uncertainty. A convenience store chain can improve responsiveness to this uncertainty using one of the following strategies, especially for fresh and fast foods: Local capacity: The convenience store chain can provide local cooking capacity at the stores and assemble foods almost on demand. Inventory would be stored as raw material. This is seen at the U.S. fast food restaurant franchise Subway where dinner and lunch sandwiches are assembled on demand. The main risk with this approach is that capacity is decentralized, leading to poorer utilization. Local inventory: Another approach is...

Seven Eleven Case Study

...What are some different ways that a convenience store supply chain can be responsive? What are some risks in each case? A convenience store can be more responsive by doing exactly what Seven-Eleven Japan is doing; many locations, rapid replenishment, appropriate technology deployment, and an equally responsive supplier (vertical integration for many of their SKUs). The risks associated with this system are the costs coupled with demand uncertainty. If demand patterns change dramatically, or the customer base changes, then Seven-Eleven is left with an operation that is not needed. In Seven-Eleven Japan’s case, multiple operations might be shuttered if an apartment building or large employer shuts down or relocates. 2. Seven-Eleven’s supply chain strategy in Japan can be described as attempting to micro-match supply and demand using rapid replenishment. What are some risks associated with this choice? Micro-matching supply and demand using rapid replenishment assumes that each store will repeat the same demand pattern on a daily basis. The tour bus phenomenon, where a group of unanticipated customers comes to the store and buys all of a type of product will cause difficulty for regular customers. During such an event, the store will likely stock out and customers may visit the next Seven-Eleven site down the block to make their purchases. Some of this demand may permanently shift, causing a local ripple; the replenishment may be excessive at one site and......

Readers Response to the Change in Ontological Levels in Metafiction

...Readers Response to the Change in Ontological Levels in Metafiction In works of metafiction, literary works address the devices of fiction to uncover the fictional illusion. Sometimes these works have a voice interacting within the world or review a contemplation of thought. Some works utilize different scenarios to emphasize metafiction such as; a reader reading a literary work, an author writing a literary work, or a narrator intentionally exposing him or herself as the author of the story. These works could also address the specific conventions of story, such as title, character conventions, paragraphing or plots. The various ways of creating a metafictional work is meant to capture the reader by making them aware that the story being told is made up, preventing a connection to their reality. One must question how do readers respond to the metafictional work? Can this response change when a different media is being used? These questions must be evaluated first in order for the metafictional to be comprehended in the second reaction. After the reader has had time to pose certain questions it will help them understand the work of leiterature. Using reader’s reactions to Beckett’s “A Text for Nothing, Number 4,” “The Magic Poker” by Robert Coover and Virginia Woolf’s Orlando , we can evaluate the responses to these works and acceptance of the evident fictional world. In the first round of reading Samuel Beckett’s “A Text for Nothing, Number 4,” the reader might start off......

Seven Rules for Leaders

...Harvard Business School 9-800-288 Rev. June 8, 2001 Seven Rules for New Leaders This note provides an overview of some of the concepts developed in Dan Ciampa and Michael Watkins’, Right From the Start: Taking Charge in a New Leadership Role (HBS Press, 1999) Every year thousands of managers—more than 600,000 annually in the Fortune 500 alone— transition into new jobs.1 By the time he or she reaches the top, the typical CEO of a Fortune 100 company has made seven major transitions—moves between functions, business units, or companies.2 But for every successful CEO, there are many talented managers who stumble along the way, damaging their careers and the organizations they were charged to lead. The actions new leaders take during their first few months can have a major impact on their success or failure, yet there is little good advice available on how to take charge in a new leadership role. Transitions are pivotal times, in part because everyone is expecting change to occur. But they are also periods of great vulnerability for new leaders who lack established working relationships and detailed knowledge of their new role. New leaders who fail to build momentum during their transition face an uphill battle from that point forward. Common Traps An analysis of new leaders who under-perform reveals six common traps into which they fall. Trap #1. Being Isolated New leaders can become isolated as a consequence of over-reliance on financial and operating reports and......

...dealing with sources coming from different places, valuing the reliability of the source can be harder without a proper knowledge of that particular culture With reference to geographic advantages, we must also consider the possibility of connecting to the Internet from any place at any time. This means that people can conduct their research without geographic and time limits, optimising the usage of their time during the day. Time has an important value even when it is directly linked to information. In fact information continuously evolves (Harris, 2007: 7) and on the Internet is easier to find up-to-date information. Timeliness can also cause problems because information on the Internet is not very stable. For example a website might change its address in the future, disappear or do not display any date. Usually information on institutional sites is more stable (University of the Free State, n.d.). Plagiarism and copyright on the InternetPlagiarism and copyright issues are not only related to the Internet, but as Rowena Macaulay (n.d.) points out, ‘Internet has contributed to a significant rise in the incident of plagiarism’ because of ‘a related sense of anonymity and freedom fromregulation’.The ease to ‘copy and paste’ as well as the temptation to recur to services such as essay banks, has contributed to raise the incidence of plagiarism...

...at the top level. They need to determine if they are going to market correctly in this category. They need to ask themselves if they are advertising to the right demographic, is the packaging appealing to the demographic they want to reach and so on. 2. The competitive situation for carbonated beverages is strong. “Three companies command 90% of the sales in the United States.” Coca Cola is a strong leader, followed by Pepsi and then Dr. Pepper/Seven Up. The top ten brands are made up from these three leaders; with Coca Cola owning five of the top ten and Dr. Pepper owning two. Squirt falls into the citrus category which is lead by Mt. Dew. Other brands in this category include Fresca, Mello Yello and Citra. “Overall soft drink sales are down for a sixth straight year. Americans tend to be shifting towards a healthier lifestyle and soda is feeling the loss. Although overall sales are down; a new reports indicate Diet Dr. Pepper sales have increased 5% in the past year. They have moved into the top ten carbonated drinks in 2011.” (Diane Bullock, 2011) 3. Possible new offering decisions for Squirt could range from different flavors, adding caffeine, changing the color and so on. Squirt currently offers Ruby Red and in 2008 they launched Squirt Citrus Power. I don’t feel they should stray too far from the original concept. This concept has put them as the number one grapefruit drink in the United States and the number one grapefruit soda in Mexico. If they change the......
