Research Skills Activity 1. Diversity Issues in workplace teams. A group of regional human resource professionals continually has made workplace diversity an ongoing educational item for its members. ‘Diversity in many aspects came about through attempts to address race and gender,’ said Scott Holsman, chapter president of the Human Resources Association of Mid-Missouri. ‘But they ” re also finding out there’s more to diversity than those two issues. There’s a rise of understanding on how teams work together, and I think we ” re moving toward more a substantial look at the role diversity plays.’ (Friedman, 2002, p.
1) As part of a yearly look at diversity issues in the workplace, members of Holsman’s group attended a half-day conference early last week. Plummer spoke about diversity issues to about 60 of the group’s members. Diversity “is a topic because it’s a reality today,” said Holsman, who works for Express Personnel Services in Mid-Missouri. “The leading companies really understand that diversity is many things, and it’s not just a gender and racial thing.
A team is made up of different talents, and the challenge is to optimize those talents to get the most benefit for an organization.” (Friedman, 2002, p. 1) 2. Case Studies in Object Oriented Programming Pi is n debugger written in C+ +. This paper explains how object-oriented Programming in C+ + has influenced Pi’s evolution. The motivation for Object Oriented programming was to experiment with a browser-like graphical user interface. The first unforeseen benefit was in the symbol table: lazy construction of an abstract syntax-based tree gave a clean interface to the remainder of Pi, with an efficient and robust implementation.
The world is changing and becoming more globalized, especially with the fast growing rate of technology, people who live far away feel closer than they are. Since the world is changing, so are things in it, organizations is one of how things are moving faster. Organizations are no longer run in one region, country or for one market, they are now multi-cultural and diverse in nature. It therefore ...
Next, though not in the original design, Pi was easily modified to control multiple processes simultaneously. Finally, Pi was extended to control processes executing across multiple heterogeneous target processors. (Cargill, 1986, p. 350) The subject of this paper is the impact of object-oriented programming on the structure and capabilities of a complicated piece of software – a debugger called Pi. The paper begins with observations about debugging in general and a description of Pi, to motivate the introduction of object-oriented programming.
When the design of Pi began, object-oriented programming was chosen as a means of achieving a style of user interface. But the application of object-oriented techniques throughout had unforeseen benefits with respect to symbol table structure, multi-process debugging and target environment independence. (Cargill, 1986, p. 350) 3. Current Political Trends in Singapore. Though being politically stable and popular, the government of Singapore has not been leading without dissentient voices.
In fact, the government has had some criticism from the people, who have demanded greater freedom of expression. (“Political Conditions,” 2003) All these achievements have been largely attributable to efforts by the Singapore government. Stressing its goal of better serving the nation, the government has always put emphasis on education as well as health and welfare programs, along with its open economic policies. (“Political Conditions,” 2003) 4. The definition and examples of usage of the phrase ‘dot com’. dotcom, n.
A company which uses the Internet for business, esp. one which has an Internet address ending with the suffix. com. In extended use: the Internet as a business medium. (Oxford English Dictionary, 2001) E. g.
What can we learn from the dot-com debacle? (Glass, 2001, p. 7) Dot com versus bricks and mortar – the impact of portal technology (Horn, 2000, p. 4) 5. Stakeholders in business ethics. In the year since the U. S.
Position Paper: How can Object Oriented Design help the Migration from Relational to Object Oriented database architecture? Introduction Object Oriented Databases Management Systems (OODBMSs) add database functionality to object programming languages. They bring much more than consistently storing programming language objects. OODBMSs extend the principals of object programming languages to ...
Congress made the Sarbanes-Oxley Act the salve for a scandal-rocked world, there has been no boom in ethical corporate behavior — just a proliferation of rules and regulations. This article presents ways to boost company ethics. Take the values-statement challenge. When the situation demands, try substituting responsibility or decency. Be a know-it-all. Hold a risk brainstorm.
Establish a quarterly process that encourages employees to answer this question: What puts this company at risk in the next year or five? Slash your pay. Meet with your boss and negotiate a lower compensation package. It may sound crazy, but in an environment of mistrust, sacrifices by top executives go a long way toward creating a culture of trust, mutual respect, and responsible business practices.
