Agenda: Slide Notes

Education is one of the primary means for both developed and developing countries to show a response, to offshoring, so their workforces can compete globally for IT jobs. In fact, education has been a primary enabler of offshoring in the developing countries. India has responded rapidly to the educational needs of its software export industry, especially through its private universities and training organizations.

The future, however, is one in which the individual will be situated in a more global competition. The brightness of the future for individuals, companies, or countries is centred on their ability to invest in building the foundations that foster innovation and invention.

ACM 5 Principles: Slide Notes

1. Page 32 2. Evolve computing curriculum at a pace with the changing nature of IT.--
In nations that are current recipients of offshored work consisting of programming and routine software testing and maintenance, for example, it may be desirable to focus the curriculum more heavily on the lower levels.

In countries that are seeing their commodity IT work being offshored, it will be desirable for the curriculum to prepare students for the middle and upper levels of IT work, where the ability to merge computer science and IT with applications and strategy are important. This is likely to lead to an increased emphasis on application knowledge and a reduced emphasis on programming skills. It should be stressed that in all cases, however, the predominance of a certain level of IT work in a certain nation or region is just a generalization; all levels will exist in all countries, and students will be needed to move into all of these levels. It is the distribution that will vary.

In general, IT professionals are more likely to work in an application-specific context than previously, and conversely, less likely to…...

Hidden Agendas

...The systematic institution of racism constitutes a systematic accumulation of effort that goes unnoticed behind the façade presented to the audience. Hidden agendas surreptitiously make the effort to facilitate subordination of the disenfranchised and powerless amidst the easily perceived promising future of equality. In the following response, I will argue the integration of humanist ethical ideologies that illicitly and surreptitiously generate racist ideologies that subjugate the colonized non-Western “other”. Social Darwinism, eugenics, imperialism, nationalism, cultural relativity, and multiculturalism are the main ideas that support my argument which will be subsequently elaborated on. For centuries, the doctrine of white male hegemonic enslavement has dominated, degraded, and dehumanized the disenfranchised and powerless from the privileged. The beliefs, values, culture, and ideology that all these different number of systems of thinking would create the knowledge of humanitarian effort to intervene in trying to justify and clarify racism without question. Universalism helped to fuel the binary opposition of the colonizers versus the colonized. The binary system is far from valiantly subverting stereotypes, such manufactured ideologies are deeply invested in upholding stereotypes, which in turn generates the idea of “difference” and this difference plays a role in sustaining racism. In other words, if words like “progressive” and “civilized” are tied to the group......

Agenda Foe Economica Revival

...ENVIRONMENT REFORMS I. SUMMARY OF RECOMMENDATIONS 42 42 43 46 4 © Confederation of Indian Industry AGENDA FOR ECONOMIC REVIVAL:CII SUGGESTIONS EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The year 2011 was a year of disappointing growth performance for the Indian economy. The confluence of downside risks-both from the external as well as internal factors adversely affected our economic growth. No doubt, the global recession significantly impacted India. However, our growth concerns have not been restricted to global factors alone. The domestic factors have been equally responsible. The slow movement on the reforms front as well as persistently high levels of inflation-primarily due to supply bottlenecks triggering tight monetary interventions- has led to a fall in investment rates. With our GDP growth decelerating to 6.9 per cent during 2011-12 and the prognosis about the economy for the current fiscal not being particularly upbeat, it is becoming increasingly clear that the Indian growth story is in trouble and our economy may not replicate the robust performance of earlier years, anytime soon. The prevailing scenario poses a strong wake – up call for India to put in place strong measures which would bring growth back in the economy given that the existing reforms have run their course. In this backdrop, CII is pleased to present its paper entitled “Agenda for Economic Revival”. CII’s suggested agenda stresses on policies and interventions which would promote employment and growth in the......

It sometimes extends to a state’s relationship with its vassal state. The Philippines as a sovereign state make use of diplomacy in dealing with other countries. As a state with presidential system of government, the diplomatic agenda and the policy foreign of the Philippines is the responsibility of the executive branch of government subject to the usual oversight functions of the legislative and judicial branches of government. The President, being the head of state, is primarily responsible in foreign policy and diplomacy which is being exercised through the Secretary of Foreign Affairs and the entire Foreign Service. Every Philippine President has their own diplomatic agenda that they pursued during their term in office.

The paper claims that Canada Medicare is economically unsuitable.

Cepero While in a group setting the group needs communication, there are many ways of ensuring that the team members as communicating effectively. Previously while I was in teams with four of my classmates I advise them to have the school app, so that if we need to contact each other about the assignment that was due at the end of the week then we would have notifications and we would be able to respond back at a timely manner. Along with on the first day of each week communicating to find out who would be responsible for being the group leader so they could do the outline for the meeting that was on Wednesday night when everyone was available. Before the meeting the leader would submit the agenda of the meeting so that everyone would know the view points of the meeting for that particular week. We would be able to discuss what part of the assignment everyone wanted to do and let everyone be able to ask any questions so the complete assignment would be understood for everyone to not have any problems completing the task that they agreed on doing. After the meeting the notes that was taken was submitted to the group to ensure everyone would have a outline to go by so they would be aware what was the next step of their assignment so the meeting goals would be achieved. Running a team online is really challenging, but with the correct leader that is strong to keep the group......

Creating an Agenda

...Creating an Agenda Chris Abernathy SOC/110 John Koehler Creating an Agenda More and more meetings are now and will continue to be conducted without the benefit of being in the same room together. People are working from home or the other side of the planet, and it’s important to make these virtual meetings effective. Virtual meetings, which I define as anytime we discuss something with two or more people outside of the same room, can be done over the phone or on the web. And though there are many advantages to meeting with people in this way, there are also obstacles to making them work well. According to "Working In A Virtual Team" (n.d.), it is more difficult to fully understand each other because even the use of video can hide a great deal of non-verbal communication. We also interact differently when we’re not in close proximity to one another. Distractions abound and can easily be hidden from others. And the ability to build trust and camaraderie are especially difficult. All Meetings Should Include: * Agenda. Nothing frustrates people more than attending a meeting where there is no clear reason for it and no logical progression of topics to be discussed. * Check–in time. Take five minutes or so in the beginning for everyone to say something about what’s going on with them—professionally or personally. This gets everyone talking right away and helps facilitate camaraderie. * Schedule. Start and end the meeting on time, and keep the agenda moving......

At the same time keeping control of the conversation is very important so that things stay on track and will ensure that the meeting stays within the time frame allotted. A good way to keep everyone on the same track and pace is to follow the agenda and if it may stray to go back to the agenda were it left off and continue.

Creating Meeting Agenda

...Creating a Meeting Agenda Creating a Meeting Agenda The agenda is the key to a successful meeting - it is the roadmap, the guide, the plan. Studies have shown that up to 70% of meetings either have no agenda or have a poor agenda which is not helpful. In this article, you will see that there are some steps which you can take to make sure your agenda will contribute to making your meeting more productive. There are also hidden advantages. If the agenda is well constructed, you will also spend less time in the meeting and more time actually doing the things the meeting determines need to be done! 1. Remember the key - the more detailed the agenda, the more focussed and generally, the shorter the meeting will be. 2. You cannot expect intelligent decisions if people do not have time to think through the issues before the meeting. Therefore, agendas need to be sent out in advance, not given out at the meeting. People who have genuine desire to reach the best decision, and people who are organised, always have their agendas distributed in time for people to give thought to the issues. 3. Adopt the strict policy that if an item is not on the agenda, it will not be discussed at the meeting. Do not allow items to be raised without notice. Allow only true emergency items to be exempt and allow no other exceptions. Organised people have no difficulty with this. It is only disorganised or "slack" people who object to this because they cannot......
