MGT-495 Transferable skills development 1.Case Study (9 Marks) One common complaint employee’s voice about supervisors is inconsistent messages – meaning one supervisor tells them one thing and another tells them something different. Imagine you are the supervisor/manager for each of the employees described below. As you read their case, give consideration to how you might help communicate with the employee to remedy the conflict. Answer the critical thinking questions at the end of the case?
Bob is a 27-year old who is a food service manager at a casual dining restaurant. Bob is responsible for supervising and managing all employees in the back of the house. Employees working in the back of the house range in age from 16 years old to 55 years old. In addition, the employees come from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. For many, English is not their primary language.
Bob is Serve Safe certified and tries his best to keep up with food safety issues in the kitchen but he admits it’s not easy. Employees receive “on the job training” about food safety basics (for example, appropriate hygiene and hand washing, time/temperature, and cleaning and sanitizing). But with high turnover of employees, training is often rushed and some new employees are put right into the job without training if it is a busy day. Eventually, most employees get some kind of food safety training. The owners of the restaurant are supportive of Bob in his food safety efforts because they know if a food safety outbreak were ever linked to their restaurant; it would likely put them out of business. Still, the owners note there are additional costs for training and making sure food is handled safely.
One day Bob comes to work and is rather upset even before he steps into the restaurant. Things haven’t been…...

Escape from Reality

...relationships, true knowledge, and understanding of oneself. Life should also be imaginative and fun, not bound down by the constricting and predetermined boundaries of a consumerist society. Gilliam ends all three movies on pleasant notes, contrasting his earlier abrupt and random endings, to show that breaks from the normal reality can result in a happier and more learned society. I believe that, at least every once in a while, everyone should participate in safely escaping from their reality. One never knows what he might find out about himself. Bibliography Armstrong, Karen.

Concert Critique of Coldplay Mylo Xyloto Tour

...Concert Critique—Coldplay Live in Boston 2012 1. Coldplay, arguably one of the most popular alternative rock bands in the last decade, is in the midst of its Mylo Xyloto tour. The band members are the lead singer and keyboardist Chris Martin, the lead guitarist Jonny Buckland, the bassist Guy Berryman, and the drummer Will Champion. They start with the intro to Back to the Future playing at a sold-out TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. Clearly, I chose the right concert for several reasons: * I have come to enjoy Coldplay’s music over the last 10 years * I have never witnessed a live Coldplay concert, much less any of the group’s concerts * Chris Martin’s keyboarding skills inspire me, as a pianist * I enjoyed how the band connects with the crowd, and * This motivates me as a musician to try to make it to this type of stage Interestingly, Coldplay was not the first name of the group. It has been around since 1996 and the group was called Pectoralz. They later changed the name to Starfish, and then to the name we all know today. 2. Coldplay begins their Boston tour with a fantastic homage to Back to the Future, as the series theme song is played. “Mylo Xyloto” is the first song played by the band as the crowd starts to cheer and wave glowing bands. “Mylo Xyloto” has a nice indie feel to it and the crowd is in favor of it. This song, played in 4/4 and 2/4 time, transitions directly to “Hurts Like Heaven”, a beautiful......

Comparative Study on Sony Playstation and Microsoft Xbox

...biggest redesign of the PlayStation Portable to date. Unlike previous PSP models, the PSP Go does not feature a UMD drive but instead has 16 GB of internal flash memory to store games, videos and other media. This can be extended by up to 32GB with the use of a Memory Stick Micro (M2) flash card. Also unlike previous PSP models, the PSP Go's rechargeable battery is not removable or replaceable by the user. The unit is 43% lighter and 56% smaller than the original PSP-1000, and 16% lighter and 35% smaller than the PSP-3000. It has a 3.8" 480 × 272 LCD (compared to the larger 4.3" 480 × 272 pixel LCD on previous PSP models). The screen slides up to reveal the main controls. The overall shape and sliding mechanism are similar to that of Sony's mylo COM-2 internet device. The PSP Go is being produced and sold concurrently with its predecessor the PSP-3000 although it will not replace it. All games on the PSP Go must be purchased and downloaded from the PlayStation Store as the handheld is not compatible with the original PSP's physical media, the Universal Media Disc. The handheld also features connectivity with thePlayStation 3's controllers the Sixaxis and DualShock 3 via Bluetooth connection.

WEEK SIX - Reading(s)… All relevant readings will be placed on MyLO. ------------------------------------------------- Ex 1 - Debating the options In small teams you are going to debate an issue (you may not necessarily agree with the argument you are to present - but you must present it convincingly!). You may search the Internet to assist in your debate. Your company has recently added new technical products to its sales line. The CEO has communicated that all employees are to complete a skills audit to find out who has knowledge and skills with the new products. The CEO expects all personnel to be fully au fait with the new products within 4 weeks (and asks you to decide how this will happen!). OPTION 1 - Your team decides that training employees is time consuming and costly and that the CEO should offer redundancy to unskilled employees - then recruit for people who already have the skills and who can start work immediately.
