Mr. B. was vulnerable when he was left unattended. Finally, the LPN on duty displayed a dangerous knowledge deficit by ignoring the de-saturation alarm on the oximeter. Improvement Plan Using Change Theory Change theory helps to effectively organize ideas that bring about long-term change. Implementing change theory first requires an identified driving force. In the scenario, Emergency department staff members were likely shaken by this poor outcome of Mr. B., and would be motivated to change to a safer model just to avoid a repeat in the future.
McVay was used as a scapegoat by the Navy because they needed to place the blame upon someone other than themselves and McVay seemed to be the perfect candidate. The navy also had failed to utilize their intelligence in ways of communication such as the top secret ULTRA. 3. After all the evidence was presented, the testimony of the surviving sailors, the testimony of the Japanese submarine commander, and all the information finally released about the naval errors, why did the government still refuse to exonerate Captain McVay? What was he actually found guilty of, and do you agree or disagree?
e. The general picture that emerges from the Case Study is that of confusion, clear lack of leadership and one that is filled with group politics. The situation is made worse by the general negative attitude among group members, notably the 2/3rds, that really takes away a good bit of performance from them. • Brainstorming can be a good method to generate ideas and develop alternatives however, the 2/3rds and CFO appeared not to have taken up this opportunity. The assumption behind brainstorming is that the group dynamic, the adage of two heads are better than one, can stimulate thinking. An individual's initial ideas can be contagious and before long, lots of new suggestions and ideas will flow.
It should be noted that is still advantageous to outsource some specific tasks on the IT department, such as infrastructure and user support. However, the focus should be in repetitive tasks that although important, does not shape the organization strategy. The IT strategy and architecture decisions should hardly ever be outsourced. There are various examples of organizations that stepped back in outsourcing deals, because the advantages of such contracts, especially on costs, do not offset the cultural and strategy hardship that it brings. The organization should avoid making outsource decisions purely based on costs, since there are many other risks involved.
The information will be poor and not enough. Also two members can divide the work; and make a better job and easily. Second, to do a successful project you need to make a good Power Point.

The primary principle of logical thinking is to raise consciousness in an individual of the environment around them. There are various barriers to logical thinking and this could prevent one from thinking critically. Whilst we cannot overcome all of these barriers, raising awareness of the importance of logical thinking can perhaps assist to avoid these barriers to some extent. The unavoidable barriers are our human limitations and thus cannot be completely overcome due to the nature of its context as our understanding of facts, perceptions and memories prevent us from seeing the world with total clarity. The attentional and memory capacity requires us to search for alternative methods such as use of external sources of machines and it restricts our ability to think critically because as human beings we aren’t equipped to function simultaneously.
Effective communication is the most vital component of any successful group. However, several barriers exist that hinder operative communication within groups. Barriers prevent group members from producing results. One of the major barriers of communication is filtering. Filtering refers to a sender’s purposely manipulating information so the receiver will see it more favorably.
There have been many cause why people resist changes in implementation of information technology. There are internal as well as external causes .the internal causes to resistance has not only been lack of organizational effort but differences in culture which has made organizational design efforts comparatively difficult to implement. The Information systems design lead to work flow implementations and these have further spoken about organizational dynamics which have played a very important part in understanding why failures occur. Organizational change can be effected by two forces. When the resistance ot meet any new implementation is immediately met, the organization should abandon the change and look for disbursing another version .culture plays a very important role in understanding failures in implanting systems and why such things happens in workplace.
Yet I believe that conflict is not just inevitable but also indispensable …a uniquely valuable component of our personal and organizational lives. Without it, we lose our ability to hear new ideas and work together toward creative solutions.”Bossart (1990). According to Kat Consador in, “Types of Organizational Conflict” Organizational conflict is the discord that arises when the "goals, interests or values of different individuals or groups are incompatible and those individuals or groups block or thwart one
Currently the product design department admits that once a product is developed it is typically “thrown over the wall to manufacturing”, because of this lack of communication product quality often suffers and problems arise after products are introduced to the market. Manufacturing must be more involved in product design. Only the manufacturing perspective can help eliminate problems that might arise due to manufacturing processes, limitations, or costs. Donaldson’s explanation of how the company currently tries to resolve this problem shows the inadequacy of the present new product development process: “Manufacturing has enough problems to worry about with today’s products without bringing new products into the picture too. We try to anticipate manufacturing problems for them before release to production”.
