...Questions 1. In your opinion, has the New Zealand Heritage Park Selected the right market targets? I believe that the international tourist market is the most important for the New Zealand Heritage Park to target. International tourists are those who are visiting New Zealand on holidays, their primary objective is that of enjoyment, relaxation and experiencing something different to that which they are used to. The New Zealand Heritage Park is a place which allows them to do just that, experiencing both the natural, cultural and agricultural delights of New Zealand. These three aspects of New Zealand are rarely found in the same areas and are widely spread making it a costly and time consuming exercise for visitors to see all three. Although currently overseas visitors only contribute 35% to the total visitor numbers of the park I believe that as the promotional material that has already been produced fully filters out and with the addition of further promotion this number will increase significantly and make international visitors the largest visitor group to the park. Although initially the domestic market is making up 55% of the visitors to the park I believe that these numbers will drop back significantly after the initial opening hype of the park. Domestic visitors are those which live in New Zealand, therefore the majority are already familiar with the natural environment, agriculture and farming works as well as Maori culture of New Zealand. Therefore the majority......

...New Zealand The natives in New Zealand are the Māori people who came to New Zealand from Polynesia between the years of 1200 to 1300. European missionaries came to New Zealand to convert the population to Catholics and they managed to do that but shortly after the british government wanted to make New Zealand into a british colony. The Maori leaders did not approve this so the queen of the united kingdom was forced to send a man with the name of William Hobson. He had the mission to get the leaders of New Zealand to accept the treaty of Waitangi which basically said that New Zealand would become a british colony. The treaty was signed on the 6th february 1840. New Zealand became an important trading post for sellers and buyers.

Performance Management New Zealand

...New Zealand Performance Management Western Illinois University New Zealand, like the US, cares a great deal about the performance of their employees and overall organization. Employees should be aware of the level of performance that is expected of them. Performance appraisals are formal evaluations of employees’ performance and are a challenging activity of the performance management system. Performance management is the term used to describe the process set by an organisation to ensure all employees are aware of the level of performance expected of them in that role, as well as any individual objectives they will need to achieve to achieve overall organisational objectives (performance management). Most organizations in New Zealand have a performance management system in place. Primary reasons for performance management systems are similar for domestic and international operations. Two primary purposes of the performance appraisal process are evaluation and development (Briscoe, Schuler, & Tarique, 2012). In New Zealand performance appraisals gives the employee the opportunity to have one-on-one time with their manager to discuss their job performance, standards for measuring performance, and training needs. The main objectives of this performance appraisal system is to provide the employee with clear feedback about overall performance in the duties. Performance management should be done with continuous observation. Deficiencies should be brought to an employee’s......

New Zealand Report

...Head: NEW ZEALAND ECONOMIC ANALYSIS REPORT New Zealand Economic Analysis Report Heather McKellips Grand Canyon University ECN 600 November 26, 2010 Abstract New Zealand is a small group of islands that is located to the southeast of Australia. It has a total land area of about 103,733 square miles, making it about the same size as the state of Colorado, USA. Although it has a small size, New Zealand is a thriving country. Their main exports include wool, forestry products, meat, dairy, fruit and nuts and fish. They have a thriving tourism business with more than 1.5 million visitors in 1999. Despite its small size and having to compete with more productive and more powerful nations, where does New Zealand’s economic being lie? This report will detail the economic stability of this country. Resting just southeast of Australia, New Zealand has some major competition with the production and exportation of their goods. They are also very reliant on foreign imports. Because of the major country of Australia just to their north, they also lose many members of their population to immigration. But on a whole, how does their economy hold up in comparison to the rest of the world? New Zealand is a power parity and has a gross domestic product (GDP) of $63.8 billion. The Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) has shown a steady increase in the GDP of New Zealand since 2004. However they still fall below the OECD average. (New Zealand......

Religious Expression in New Zealand

...Analyse Religious expression in New Zealand I am an experienced sociologist who has many years of teaching within the country. Being New Zealand born I have watched the steady changes in religious make up within Aotearoa/New Zealand and seeing how the society and government responds to the changes. I am preparing an analytic report outlining the changes in the past basing my main focus on Scientology (cult), Quakers or Society of Friends (sect) and the Catholic Church. The reports have been specifically based upon the changes within New Zealand. Quakerism “Quakers”, also knows as Society of Friends, is a sect which is Christian in its origin and inspiration but is open to ideas from other religious groups. Quakers cover the three components which exists in a Christian group, conservative, mainline and liberal. Quakerism was found by George Fox in the mid 17th century. He believed that there is “that of God in everyone”. He believed that each human being has the potential to succeed and accomplish their most outright goals in life by following the example of God. The sect had an early involvement with New Zealand and began with regular meetings and Worship in Nelson in 1842 but stopped after 20 years then continued in Auckland in 1885. Quaker congregations are almost completely autonomous. There exist no main assemblies or medial authority within the sect, although there is a committee in London. In New Zealand they follow a non-hierarchical organisation having no...

Precast Buildings in New Zealand

...PAPER 1(Summary) A perspective on seismic design of Precast concrete structures in New Zealand – Robert Park(PCI journal : 1995) MOMENT RESISTING FRAMES WITH PRECAST REINFORCED ELEMENTS The approach is to design and construct connections that possess stiffness, strength & ductility similar to that of cast-in-place concrete monolithic constructions The three different types of beam column connection arrangement are discussed below: 1. System 1 * The precast beam elements are placed on the cover concrete of cast-in-place columns * The reinforcement is then placed on beam top, the beam-to-column joint core & next storey height column * Lastly, cast-in-place concrete is placed * A mechanical key may be provided at beam end to take care of the vertical shear. Advantage * Large reduction in quantity of site formwork Limitations * Column dimension need to be reasonably large to accommodate the required development length of bottom reinforcement of the precast beams in joint core. * The critical section of the potential plastic hinge region in beam occurs at the column face where there is a vertical joint between the cast-in-place concrete of the joint core & end of the precast beam. 2. System 2 The precast portion of the reinforced concrete beams extend from near mid-span to mid-span and include within the precast element over the columns the complex arrangement of joint core hoop reinforcement which is fabricated at......

New Zealand Changes

...Australia (New Zealand) Developmental changes Australia has changed over the years with family structure, climate, economic, land mass, and social changes. Australia has changed because they are no longer having a growth of traditional family structures. The parents are no longer stay married to their children’s biological parent like they did in the old days. Many of the families have an exceptional amount of parents because either both of the parents have remarried or have been divorced. In Australia in the past days they didn’t normally divorce or remarry after they became widowed or divorced. In many of the families 30% are single parent homes because they never marry.
