Zachary Ryan Bussman. A great son, a great brother, but way past all of that, a great person. Zach was always striving to be the best he could be. Skating, playing the guitar, sports, doing front flips off of his garage onto pillows and blankets…no matter what it was you would always get Zach’s best effort. One specific moment that has and will always stick in my head was in 2005 when myself, Zach, Nick Bart and a bunch of other close friends were on a house league baseball team together. A championship house league team I should say. Zach was our all-star catcher. Now if you know Zach you know about his temper. When Zach was mad, everyone paid the price. One game Zach was so upset and down on himself because of an error he had made. Little did he know he was going to be the star of that game. I was on the mound pitching and Zach was behind the plate catching. A foul ball was popped up, and I see Zach take off and I thought to myself there’s no chance he’s catching that….next thing you know I see Zach dive head first, completely horizontal with the ground, and make the catch. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a kid with a bigger smile on his face. Ever. That season our squad went on to win a very exciting house league tournament championship. I could sit here for days talking about my fallen brother who helped make me who I am today. And saying that, I want to thank him for the friendship he gave me. I will never know why he had to go so young, but I know that God has himself one heck of an angel. Forever missed and forever loved, you will always be in my heart…...

Analysis of Organizational Culture

...organization. Organizational culture is defined as “a system of shared meaning held by members that distinguishes the organization from other organizations.” In many instances the stated organizational culture may not coincide with the values that are being enacted by the company. Organizational Culture: Employee of the month (2006) Employee of the Month was my movie selection. This movie was a good laugh, a light-hearted comedy about the common American workplace displaying the effects and influence of motivation within the context of organizational culture. Zach Bradley is the main character who is a witty fellow drowning in a pool of under-achievement, doing enough to just get by because he has nothing better to do. When a new employee, Amy (Jessica Simpson), hits the scene carrying the reputation for falling for guys who top the list as Employee of the Month, Zach seizes the opportunity to take his performance to whole new level. Zach battles it out with his co-worker nemesis, Vince, who is up for the challenge. The movie is full of pranks and surprises, and does a good job of illustrating the power and effects of motivation. Also, I think the movie gives a good snapshot of the organizational culture of a common American workplace, and how it affects different employees in different ways. I really enjoyed the movie for what it’s worth and was able to get some valuable insights into concepts, such as organization objectives and organization values, and how they......
