Brako is a small manufacturing company that produces parts for the automobile industry. The company has several patents on parts that fit in the brake assembly of nearly all domestic and foreign cars. Each year, the company produces 3 million parts that it ships to assembly plants throughout the world. To produce the parts, Brako runs three shifts with about 40 workers on each shift.
The supervisors for the three shifts (Art, Bob, and Carol) are experienced employees, and each has been with the company for more than 20 years. The supervisors appear satisfied with their work and have reported no major difficulty in supervising employees at Brako.
Art supervises the first shift. Employees describe him as being a very hands-on type of leader. He gets very involved in the day-to-day operations of the facility. Workers joke that Art knows to the milligram the amount of raw materials the company has on hand at any given time. Art often can be found walking through the plant and reminding people of the correct procedures to follow in doing their work. Even those working on the production line, Art always has some directions and reminders.
Workers on the first shift have few negative comments to make about Art’s leadership. However, they are negative about many other aspects of their work. Most of the work on this shift is very straightforward and repetitive; as a result, it is monotonous. The rules for working on the production line or in the packaging area are all clearly spelled out and require no independent decision making on the part of workers. Workers simply need to show up and go through the motions. On lunch breaks, workers often are heard complaining about how bored they are doing the same old thing over and over. Workers do not criticize Art, but they do not think he really understand their situation.
Bob supervises the second shift. He really enjoys working…...

...In many instances fraternities are limited to male membership such as the Dutch “Alpinisten Vereniging Gelderlan Midden” but this is not always the case, and there is mixed male and female, and even wholly female, fraternities for example, for general fraternities: The Grande Loge Mixte De France, The Honorable Fraternity of Ancient Freemasons, The Grande Loge Féminine de France, the various Order of Odd Fellows, and The Order of the Eastern Star. Fraternities can be organized for many purposes, including university education, work skills, ethics, ethnicity, religion, politics, charity, chivalry, other standards of personal conducts, asceticism, service, performing arts, family command of territory, and even crime. The is almost always an explicit goal of mutual support, and while there have been fraternal orders for the well-off there also have been many fraternities for those in the lower ranks of society, especially for national or religious minorities. Trade unions also grew out of fraternities such as “The Knights of Labors”. The ability to organize freely, apart from the institutions of government and religion, was a fundamental part and the establishment of the modern world. In living the Enlightenment, Margaret C.

This region due to current U.A.E Central Bank restrictions has a cap of 8 branches which serve 5 of the emirates with a multitude of smaller Customer Service Units. All the usual banking services and products are available including offshore banking and Investments, personal and private banking, commercial and investment bank capabilities. The bank serves a truly multicultural society with over 200 nationalities co existing peacefully within the U.A.E (UAE Interact 2009). Banks play an essential role within an economy and can contribute to its health and stability. Most world economies, including the Middle Eastern economies, attempt to focus their efforts on growing and stabilising their banking sectors. The Macro-Environment Political The U.A.E has had a very stable political system since it was formed back in 1972. This stability has led to significant growth driven by mainly oil production in the southern emirate of Abu Dhabi and commerce in the emirate of Dubai. The Rulers vision is of dreaming large and achieving big (Alafrangi 2006) and this has been realised in the massive growth of infrastructure and wealth that has taken place. Recent political unrest in the Middle East especially neighbouring countries such as Oman, Yemen and Bahrain appears to have had little effect. “Whatever you say about the U.A.E, its rulers take good care of nationals, offering them a ‘gold......

The Life of Abu Dhar

...Abu Dharr al-Ghifari | Born | Hejaz | Died | 652 C.E. | Title | AlGhifari AlKinani | Religion | Islam | Additional information | Tribe | Banu Kinanah | Status | Muhajirun | ABOUT ABU-ZAR ALGHAFARI: Abu Zar's real name was Jandab ibn Junadah ibn Sakan, better known as Abu Dhar al-Ghaffari, or Abu Thar al-Ghaffari. Hazrat Abu Zar's Kunniyat was Abu Zar, which is because his eldest son was named Zar (this word in Arabic means 'fragrance'). By one estimate, Abu Zar was born in 568 AD, which means Abu Zar was two years older than the Prophet Muhammad (saw). He was born to the Ghifar clan, found to the western south of Medina.  They were a branch of the Banu Kinanah tribe. Quraysh clan of Muhammad (SAW) was also a branch of the Banu Kinanah tribe. Hazrat Abu Zar Ghaffari (Radhiallahu Anhu / May God be pleased with him) had belonged to an Arab tribe by the name of Ghaffar, hence his last name.   Early life: Abu Zar was most unhappy about the custom of Idol-worship that was rampant in Arabia of the 7th century. He had already believed in a Supreme God and he would spend most of his time reflecting on that. Little is known of his life before his conversion to Islam. Abu Dharr is said to have been a serious young man, an ascetic and a monotheist even before......

Special Advertising Section 2008 Abu Dhabi 3 Abu Dhabi: Creating a Modern Metropolis isit Abu Dhabi, even for a short time, and the quiet confidence of this dynamic capital city is quickly apparent. It’s a confidence that prioritizes planning and getting things right from the start. What’s the source of this confidence? Perhaps it’s the $350 billion in infrastructure, real estate and industrial projects already in progress for the city. Maybe it stems from the Persian Gulf emirate’s enormous oil and gas reserves and growing human capital base. It could also be the awareness that most elements of the city’s future growth have already been studied and planned out. But it is likely a combination of all these factors. This city’s ambitious and deliberate approach to growth was behind the creation of “Plan Abu Dhabi 2030:......

Abu Zar Ghafari

...Historical Events The Law of the Land Signs of a Hypocrite Useful Links Posts Abu Dharr Al-Ghifari Abu Dharr’s story is the story of the highway robber who became an ascetic and a preacher during the life of Prophet Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) and the conscience of the rulers of the Islamic State after the death of the Messenger of Allah (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam). Abu Dharr (radi Allahu anhu) was among the first persons to accept Islam. Prophet Muhammad (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said about him: “No one walking on the earth and under the sky is more truthful than Abu Dharr.” [Ibn Majah] Search for Truth In the Waddan valley, which connects Makkah to the outside world, lived the tribe of Ghifar. Ghifar were notorious for raiding trade caravans and for invading weaker neighbouring tribes. So lawless were they, that they did not even respect the four sacred months held inviolable by all Arabs, in which they did not allow killing. All in all, their interests were focused on ways to rob others. [Imam Ahmad Ibn Hanbal] Jundub ibn Junadah, nicknamed Abu Dharr, was a member of this tribe. He, like his peers, was a professional raider and used all means available to kill to survive. However, he didn’t like this life style and eventually, he with his brother and mother, left the tribe and moved close to Makkah. Abu Dharr (radi Allahu anhu) had started praying more than three years before the advent of Islam. He would pray......

Convergence of Errors: Leadership Failures Contributing to Abu Ghraib Abuses

...Paper Convergence of Errors: Leadership Failures Contributing to Abu Ghraib Abuses ASSESSMENT Assessor: Marc Imbeault Mark:       Comments:       Convergence of Errors: Leadership Failures Contributing to Abu Ghraib Abuses Introduction The purpose of this persuasive essay is to reveal the key leadership factors contributing to events that occurred during Operation Iraqi Freedom at Abu Ghraib Confinement Facility in Iraq between October and December 2003. “The abuses at Abu Ghraib primarily fall into two categories: a) intentional violent or sexual abuse [against detainees], and b) abusive actions taken based on misinterpretations or confusion regarding law or policy.”[1] From the standpoint of “Leading the Institution,” it will be argued that authorities failed to develop of a coherent body of policy or procedures[2] regarding detainee operations, which would have served to appropriately and consistently guide actions in the field and thus enable success. Instead, policy was inconsistent, ambiguous and changing – resulting in confusion regarding morally and legally acceptable standards for interrogation and detention. These lapses in policy contributed mostly to the second category of abuse.[3] From the standpoint of “Leading People,” it will be argued that the absence of effective supervision was the key contributing factor to the events at Abu Ghraib, whereby leaders failed to “monitor, inspect,......

...Australian woman jailed in Abu Dhabi for Facebook post 11:00 PM Tuesday Jul 14, 2015 Australian officials are trying to speed up the deportation of a woman arrested in the United Arab Emirates for "writing bad words on social media". Jodi Magi, 39, of Western Australia, was sentenced to a fine and deportation after she posted a photo on Facebook of a car parked across two disabled spots outside her Abu Dhabi apartment.

Values and Ethics at Abu Ghraib

...Values and Ethics at Abu Ghraib Would you be able to stand up against your superiors, coworkers and friends to uphold your values and ethics? Or would you be like the many soldiers guarding Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq who lost their careers as a result of their poor ethical decisions? The Abu Ghraib prison scandal put many people’s values and ethics to the test. The outcome, career success was influenced by values and ethics displayed through the choices of those involved. The chain of command was not prosecuted, but the soldier who attempted to bring the situation to the attention of his superiors was ostracized and threatened by his friends and coworkers. So how did this situation come to be, who is to blame, and were the punishments of all involved justified? Located approximately 20 kilometers west of Baghdad, Abu Ghraib was the largest and most notorious prison in Iraq (CBS, 2007). It covers 280 acres, has a perimeter of about two and a half miles and is made up of five individual compounds, each possessing guard towers and very high walls. Under Saddam Hussein’s rule, countless numbers of Iraqis were tortured and executed in Abu Ghraib. After the 2003 US invasion of Iraq, the prison at Abu Ghraib was stripped of doors, windows, and bricks by looters. Within months, coalition forces mended and cleaned the prison compound. They added toilets, showers, and even a medical center. However, the living conditions at Abu Ghraib continued to suffer. Detainment......
