international markets and production

Lesson 2: International Markets and Production

Activity 2: International Business and Human Resources

Using ProQuest, the online database on the Ashworth College website, and the Internet, research Geert Hofstede andHofstede’s Dimensions. For this Activity, focus on the following:

1.Power Distance:To what degree does a culture encourage people to think of themselves as equals and to what degree does a culture encourage people to stay within a hierarchical social structure?

2.Individualism vs. Collectivism:To what degree does a culture encourage individualism?Asian cultures tend to be group oriented, while American culture encourages individualism.

3.Masculinity vs. Femininity:Is a culture oriented towards relationships or tasks?This dimension deals with the idea of masculine and feminine influences in the workplace.

4.Uncertainty Avoidance:Does a culture encourage people to take or avoid risk?

Read the following two (2) scenarios and answer the questions at the end of each scenario.You must cite all resources used and include an APA-formatted reference list.Your Activity responses should be both grammatically and mechanically correct, and formatted in the same fashion as the Activity itself.If there is a Part A, your response should identify a Part A, etc.(100 points) (A 4-page response is required for the combination of Parts A and B.)

Part ACountry A

The Problem:A mid-size hotel chain requested the services of a human resources consultant to assist in preparing employees for a merger with a similar company whose headquarters were located in the same country.The organization was very concerned about the type of employee anxiety that typically accompanies mergers and acquisitions. It was quite possible the merger might require some downsizing and change in organizational structure and management styles.

Country Background:Both hotel chains were located in Country A, a relatively small (about the size of the American state of New Jersey), highly industrialized country politically considered to be a “western democracy.”The country is considered to have a very open, friendly attitude towards tourism. The population is, for the most part, socially, racially, and economically homogeneous. The government is stable, the GNP is high, and crime is much lower than in other countries of similar size and economic status. Militarily, the country is pacifistic. Taxes are high, but much government assistance is provided in public education, including graduate school tuition, medicine, disability insurance, retirement benefits, utilities, transportation, and employee rights protection. In fact, all employees are guaranteed a seven-week annual vacation and maternal or paternal leave to all new parents. Professional and non-professional employees typically retire at age 53.Both freedom of expression and the right to private enterprise are considered sacred.

The Consultant:In the first meeting, the consultant was introduced to the organization and its key executives.The consultant began by explaining his background in human resources and his experience in the cost-efficient management of human capital.Suddenly the room went silent, and there was a definite freeze. Realizing his faux pas, the consultant cleared his throat and explained that his “real” emphasis was on assisting organizations to counsel and develop their employees to their fullest potential, especially during times of trauma. He then began talking about issues such as organizational learning.

Answer the following questions considering the above information.

  • How would you describe this country’s culture in terms of Hofstede’s dimensions?Explain why.
  • Why did the consultant change his image and presentation of services?
  • What would you recommend that the consultant do differently?

Part BCountry B

The Problem:A small hotel chain (with no international holdings) recently purchased a new information technology system.Top management wished to computerize all of their hotels’ operations.A consultant was hired to develop a training program to teach its employees how to operate the new computers.

Country Background:The hotel organization is located in Country B, which has been economically categorized as a developing nation.As a former European colony, it is still greatly influenced by its colonial legacy.Tourism is new to this country, and hotels cater to foreigners or to the country’s elite, who pride themselves on appearing European. A large social, cultural, and economic gap exists between this country’s rich and poor. Ninety percent of the country’s wealth is held by 10% of its population.Industry is 75 percent privately owned by a small cartel of leading families. The government is modeled after the European parliamentary system. However, in reality, the government is basically a single party system that has ruled since independence in 1960.While the government claims to be militarily neutral, newspaper editorials are clearly anti-socialist.The GNP is high for the region. Many observers believe that the country’s economic health reflects favorable trade and tax agreements that have encouraged large-scale foreign investors looking for relatively cheap labor markets. Government and company-supported services for the poor are meager and sporadic. The population consists of four key ethnic groups who possess different racial, linguistic, and religious origins. While 40 percent of the population is illegal immigrants, they are ethnically related and protected by their local

extended families.Family bonds are, thus, very important.In most cases, the ties to one’s clan are more important than one’s nationality.Nepotism and favoritism often influence personnel decisions as job descriptions and performance criteria are typically vague.In business and in government, members of the same family always hold positions of trust.

The Consultant:Top company officials politely received the consultant.They spent a lot of time getting to know him on both a professional and personal level.While the consultant was flattered by the attention, he was also frustrated by the length of time needed to establish rapport. Impatiently, the consultant pressured company officials to permit him to present his ideas for a new employee development program. In addition to computer training, the consultant suggested new training in management and team building.He called himself a change agent and encouraged the company to develop a systematic career development and counseling system along with tuition benefits for any employee who wished to further his or her education.Finally, he suggested a full-scale cultural diagnosis to identify the need for culture change within the hotel chain.

Answer the following questions in light of the above information.

  • How would you describe this country’s culture in terms of Hofstede’s dimensions? Explain why.
  • Why did the consultant’s ideas fall on polite, but deaf ears?
  • What would you recommend?

answer to the discussion prompt and then write reply to these 2 comments from my peers

Discussion prompt

Provide an analysis of this advertisement for a nursing program. This is not a summary; make sure that you offer an interpretation of the advertisement and that you “read between the lines” in order to address each aspect of analysis:

  • Audience
  • Purpose
  • Content
  • Mood
  • Style
  • Structure

In addition to your main response, you must also post substantive responses to at least two of your classmates’ posts in this thread. Your response should include elements such as follow up questions, further exploration of topics from the initial post, or requests for further clarification or explanation on some points made by the classmates.

Comment 1

This advertising shows two examples of nursing. In both images, both nurses are standing professionally, with a nice posture. Both nurses are smiling and look very pleasant and ready to help. The advertising on the left conveys that Nurse Emma, from the emergency room, is a competent nurse who knows the job well. With just one look at a patient, Emma is prepared and has great judgment. On the right side, there is Nurse Izzy also from the emergency room. It seemed like Izzy performed CPR on a patient who coded, “Roy’s heart fluttered”. Izzy looks emotionally stable and calm. The advertisement is an example of what great and confident nurses look like.

Comment 2

The purpose of these two ads for a nursing program was to convey that nursing may seem like a sweet, dainty job, but in reality, it’s a serious career with huge responsibility. The goal of that message is to recruit potential nurses who are ready for the job. I believe the targeted audience is young to middle aged professional women. Both ads pictured white blond women who appeared to be 20-35 years old. The purpose is to sell the possibility of a respected career while also weeding out individuals who aren’t willing to take it seriously. The first sentence of each ad sounds very romantic by suggesting you can find love in a nursing career but then gives a serious statement about having to treat patients with broken bones and heart issues. It’s possible that the ads are stating both; you can be a cute nurse and find romance while saving lives and helping others. At the bottom of the ad, there appears to be the featured character’s signature with “Emergency Department” written below their name. The ad wants the audience to picture their name written on the bottom of the add and imagine themselves as a happy woman wearing scrubs working in the ED. This style of writing on the bottom creates a response. The ads appealed to the audience’s needs to belong, to have status, and to identify with those they admire. The advertising techniques used were appealing to emotion, using a testimonial, and association.

literature writing 04

In well-developed paragraphs answers questions 1-4 as typed below and complete the chart on symbolism (described below). I estimate each answer will require 200-300 words. Be sure to use quoted references to the text in your answers. Need to answer both part I and part II.


Part I: Analysis Questions on Amy Tan’s “A Pair of Tickets”

1. In Amy Tan’s “A Pair of Tickets,” language plays a key role in the process of the character Jing-Mei’s “becoming Chinese.” How does Jing-Mei feel about speaking Chinese? Look through the story for references to language, especially the names of the three sisters.

2. There are many changing images in the story. Look, for instance, at the images that Jing-Mei has of her sisters and her physical image of herself. Another recurring pattern is that of photography, especially the Polaroid pictures. Polaroid pictures at the time were instantly ejected from the camera, but it took several minutes for the chemicals to develop the picture fully. How does Tan use this fact as a way of developing the idea of “becoming Chinese”?

3. Loss is an important theme in this story, beginning with Jing-Mei’s recent loss of her mother. Why does Jing-Mei feel that she disappointed her mother? Why did her mother abandon her twin babies? How is Jing-Mei’s sense of identity tied up with her mother’s story?

4. After Jing-Mei meets her sisters, she says, “And now I also see what part of me is Chinese. It is so obvious. It is my family. It is in our blood. After all these years, it can finally be let go.” What does the final “it” refer to here?

Part II: Research the term “Southern Gothic”; analyze O’Connor and Faulkner

Research the Southern Gothic, using two scholarly sources (no “.com” sources). Include a works cited section with the two sources following this chart. Complete the chart with sample content from “A Good Man is Hard to Find” and “A Rose for Emily.” Include three examples from each short story. (You can copy this chart and type into it. Turnitin will accept the chart).

Story

Element of the Gothic. (please explain the element in 2-3 sentences, and cite the source from which you got the information)

Use of the Element in the story (refer to where the element is used in the short story—provide a page # or a quote from your text)

“A Good Man is Hard to Find” (example 1)

“A Good Man is Hard to Find” (example 2)
