Who: Who is involved? What: What do I want to accomplish? Where: Identify a location When: Establish a timeframe Which: Identify requirements and constraints Why: Specific reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal. M = MEASURABLE We need to be able to measure a goal to know how close we are to reaching it. Without being able to track our progress, we may become de-motivated and lose sight of the goal altogether.
However, Speer finished it within a year again proving his organisational and efficiency skills which led to his appointment as Reich Minister for Armaments in 1942. As Hitler paid little attention to war production, Speer had many issues to deal with. In the same year, he set up the Central Planning Board to control the allocation for raw
Discussion The experiment was very easy to follow and easy to understand. Because we knew how to calculate the density, volume and mass of objects and liquids it was easy to do. The identity of the unknown
In 1987, Morita wrote Made In Japan, a historical biography that was considered to be one of the greatest resources for students considering a career in business. Two years later, he co-authored The Japan That Can Say “NO,” a book that drew a great deal of criticism in the United States. In addition to commenting on the quality of American products, Morita also
Kaoru Ishikawa developed the concept of Quality Circles and Cause and Effect (Fishborne) Diagram. Kaoru Ishikawa was born in 1915 in Tokyo. He graduated from Tokyo University in 1939 with an engineering degree in applied chemistry. Following a short time in the military he worked for the Nissan Liquid Fuel Company from 1941 – 1947 before becoming an associate professor at the University of Tokyo. In 1978 he became president of the Musashi Institute of Technology.
Executive Summary Fusion Systems Corporation is a world leader of industrial UV curing and a worldwide provider of UV systems, equipment and service. Fusion Systems had been in business since 1975 and it had a patent in place for its technology for a special high-powered microwave UV lamp. This innovation gave Fusion Systems a niche of 80%-90% market share in the Japanese market. In 1981 Mitsubishi Electric opposed the Fusion Systems patent application for a high-powered microwave lamp, and this lead to one of the most public series of intellectual property disputes between U.S. and Japanese firms in the 1980s. These disputes stemmed around the ownership of patents protecting technologies.
Tripp (2011) proposes that reflection is a vital process of professional development. He highlights the need for practitioners to challenge their ideas and beliefs in order to change trends. Within this piece of writing, a critical incident from my beginning placement will be identified and critiqued using Tripp’s model of critical incident analyse. Tripp (1993) recommends that the process involved to analyse an incident is of great importance to influence a person’s understanding. Tripp (1993) also states that critical incidents are ‘not all dramatic or obvious- they are mostly straight forward accounts of very commonplace events’ (Tripp 1993:25).
“I feel that…preference,” is answered in the next paragraph with “until, by the improvement…in our character,” and “How can the will…or awakened,” is answered by the following sentence “Only by making the person desire virtue.” Mill does this to engage his audience in Utilitarianism and to answer common questions regarding his philosophy. These examples recur throughout the rest of Mill’s masterpiece and help to define his work. Another key point considered with Utilitarianism, was Mill’s use of extremely long and grammatically correct sentences coupled with quite short ones. “They are overcome practically…can be referred,” is a five line long sentence, and succeeding it is a two line-long idea “If utility is the…demands are incompatible.” One better example is the fourteen line-long “Whatever may be…held to virtue,” which dwarfs its one line counterpart after it “This opinion is…the Happiness principle.” Mill makes these stark contrasts in an attempt to accentuate his point of the matter and to further uphold his superiority on the subject. After all he is a scholar and the leading expert on Utilitarianism at the time.
It is also extremely useful in situations in which little qualitative data is available for analysis. The Ishikawa Diagram is most effectively used in a group or team setting; however it can be used by individuals. To construct a “fishbone”, begin by stating the problem. Many managers find it helpful to state the problem in the form of a question which should be brainstormed ahead of time. Stating the problem in the form of a question will help focus the group because each root cause idea may answer the question.
In less than a century, Japan would transform itself into the first country outside of the West to possess a modern state, a modern industrial economy and involve itself in the politics of the world; Japan would become the first Imperial nation that wasn’t from the west. Peter Duus writing in The Rise of Modern Japan states “As one foreign observer noted in 1900, Japan was like a comet suddenly tracing a path across the sky, exploding into the vision of an outside world that for centuries had hardly taken notice of it.” [ (Duus 3) ]. However it is important to note that although the arrival of the West with Commodore Perry did cause Japan to begin to become modernized, its historical context and cultural heritage continued to influence its
