The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, were of the nature of not easily forgotten. To help counter any future recurrences of such events, the U.S. government enacted what is most commonly known as the “Patriot Act.” The full name of this act is “Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism (USA Patriot Act) Act of 2001,” and was passed only 45 days after the terrorist attacks. There are many arguments on whether or not the Patriot Act is designed to work for the better of the world, or to take away many of the civil liberties that belong to citizens of the United States. On the surface, it seems like the Patriot Act is working towards the right goal: “To deter and punish terrorist acts in the United States and around the world, to enhance law enforcement investigatory tools, and for other purposes.” However, many would argue that the last two objectives of the act (the majority of the act) have been taken too far. A closer look at the Patriot Act reveals well intended items, some of which also having consequences. Section 101 of the first title, Enhancing Domestic Security Against Terrorism, of the Patriot Act (USA Patriot Act) creates what is known as the Counterterrorism Fund. This fund is set up to recover costs that are spent in association with terrorism. The only drawback to the fund is that there is no limit to the spending. Section 102 condemns discrimination against Americans of Arab, Muslim, and Southern Asian decent. The first part of the section is Congress’s findings, such as “Arab Americans, Muslim Americans, and Americans from South Asia play a vital role in our Nation and are entitled to nothing less than the full rights of every American,” and “The acts of violence that have been taken against Arab and Muslim Americans since the September 11, 2001, attacks against the United…...

How did this culture contribute to the company’s downfall?  The Lehman Brothers management encouraged excess risk taking by its employees and rewarded them handsomely for this. The management also encouraged staff that took questionable deals and punished whoever was critical of company policies. It was also very secretive in addressing the remunerations of the top management and openly filed their financial reports wrongly to please investors and attract more clients. The Lehman management was also profit oriented opting to reduce health insurance of its employees in order to maximize on profits. This shows the extent management was willing to sacrifice to fulfill the company’s appetite for money placing their staffs’ interests in the backseat. 3. What role did Lehman’s executives play in the company’s collapse? Were they being responsible and ethical? Discuss.  The Lehman management openly violated the ethics code of business.

Aberle MGT 309 Case Analysis 1 25 Oct 15 Introduction Gard Automotive Manufacturing (GARD), is an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) which makes a range of plastic products such as window and door handles, dashboards and control knobs for light trucks and autos for U.S. auto producers. One of the companies that GARD buys from year in and out is DuPont Engineering Polymers (DEP) which has been a stable company and a top product which earned another contract this year. “Tom Lippet, sales representative for DuPont Engineering Polymers (DEP)” has been working with “Mike O’Leary, purchasing agent at GARD” for years concerning the contract who will be retiring in a few months and Richard Binish will be O’Leary’s successor. He is ready to make some changes which will bring up some questions in DEPs eyes in the business game. “In Binish’s terms, product merely becomes a ‘qualifying criterion.’ If everyone’s product is comparable, especially in something such as polymer feedstock, how do you distinguish yourself? Binish claims companies will need to demonstrate something called ‘order winning criteria’ to get our business in the future.” For DEP to keep the GARD business, they will need to improve its logistical performance to meet rising expectations from the customers. Body Certain stages are adding value in the DEP/GARD supply chain which shows what is needed to have...

Basically everyone is expected to lead and be an entrepreneur in their own role. 2) Having no manager means no organizing, everyone is their own boss. Employees will start taking decisions by their own, anyone can initiate a project and implement innovative ideas without titles or a hierarchy. Some people will develop a sense of leading, an upgrade in their own personality. 3) Challenges are faced by holacratic like structure arrangement, account ability, and the authority to hire, fire and decide pay. 4) A holacratic organization is a fascinating way of work and unleash a creativity.
