World War One The first world war started for many reasons like competion of the colonies, military technology development, economic competition and different national interests. Many historians believe that Germany caused World War One. But the first world war was triggered on June 28, 1914, when Austrian Empire Franz Ferdinand was murdered by a Serbian nationalist Gavrilo Princip. On July 28, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia. After that Germany declared war on Russia and France in the beginning of August. Russia and France became allies. On August 4th The United Kingdom declares war on Germany, after Germany invades Belgium. Austria-Hungary declares war on Russia and Serbia declares war on Germany on August 6. On August 19th President Woodrow Wilson announces the United States will remain neutral. In early November The United Kingdom announces that the North Sea is a military area, effectively creating a blockade of goods into Germany. Allied countries
An alliance is an agreement made between two or more countries to give each other help if it is needed. When an alliance is signed, those countries become known as Allies. But allies changed in the war many times.

The war divided Europe into two armed camps. On one side was the Triple Alliance made up of Germany, Austria-Hungary and Italy, and their enemy was the Triple Entente of France, Russia and Great Britain. As other countries began to join sides, the Triple Alliance became known as the Central Powers and the Triple Entente became the Allied Forces. The more states joined the alliances the more the war spread across Europe. In the beginning of February 1915 Germany declares a "war zone" around Great Britain. (essentially effecting a submarine blockade where even neutral merchant vessels were to be potential targets. ) On May 7th The British ocean liner RMS Lusitania is sunk by…...

...A business manager is a person who drives the work of others in order to run a major business efficiently and make a large profit. He or she should have working knowledge of the following areas, and may be a specialist in one or more: sales, marketing, and public relations; research, operations analysis, data processing, mathematics, statistics, and economics; production; finance; accounting, auditing, tax, and budgeting; purchasing; and personnel.[citation needed] Other technical areas in which a business manager may have expertise are law, science, and computer programming.[citation needed] In many businesses, the role of business manager may grow out of a small business-owner's desire to shed some of the multiple roles mentioned above to focus on specific aspects of company expansion or market penetration. The business manager for a time may share duties with the owner, as the owner gains trust in the business manager. Ideally, the business manager and the owner work synergistically to ensure that the business of running a successful business is attended to. This can often be a process of the owner relinquishing the functions for which there is a comparative disadvantage for his or her continued involvement.

Store managers Forecasting model Inventory in stores, past sales Requested shipment quantities for each reference and size Warehouse inventory Inventory in stores Demand forecasts Warehouse inventory Warehouse allocation team Optimization model Shipments Shipments that although the general problem just stated is not specific to fast-fashion retailing, we believe that several features that are specific to this retail paradigm (short product life cycles, unique store inventory display policies) justify new approaches. Indeed, Zara’s interest in this area of collaboration was motivated by its desire to improve the inventory distribution process it was using at the beginning of our interaction for deciding the quantity of each article to be included in the weekly shipment from the warehouse to each store (see Figure 1(a) for an illustration). According to that process, which we call the legacy process, each store manager would receive a weekly statement of the subset of articles available in the central warehouse for which he/she may request a shipment to his/her store. Note that this weekly statement (dubbed “the offer”) would thus effectively implement any high-level assortment decision made by Zara’s headquarters for that particular store. However, it would not mention the total quantity of inventory available in the warehouse for each article listed. After considering the inventory remaining in their respective stores, store managers would......

...There is the age old question of what is the difference between a manager and a leader? Most people will say that you can’t be a manager without being a leader. In this paper, I will discuss in detail, what is it that leaders and managers do, can leaders and managers be one in the same, as well as, explain the difference between managers and leaders. Most successful businesses usually consisted of a team of successful managers. Note that in order to be a manager it does not require a person to be a leader. Managers often ask your "how" and "who" questions in an organization. Managers are about appealing to the head through planning, organization, controlling, and directing. Managers generally have a formal title in an organization and they thus have formal organizational power. (Tanner, 2009) There are some people out there with the title of manager who do not have anyone who work for him or her. They simple manage things like accounts, property, or supplies. They are totally successful at doing their job without showing any signs of leadership. Also, a manager can obtained his position of authority through time and loyalty given to the company, not as a result of his leadership qualities. According to the text, there are several different examples of managers. For instance, managers are concern with how to get things done and try to get people to perform better. Another example, managers value stability, order, and efficiency, and they are impersonal, risk adverse and focus...

...were dismissed at the notion of being able to work at local hospitals in the area. The financing of the BI Hospital derived from the Jewish communities donations. Millions of dollars were donated in order to create an upper class academic medical center that was known not only for the quality of its research and teaching but also for the quality of its care. As time went on capitalism showed its face by driving the local Boston hospital’s to want more market share in their geographic locations. A Dean of Harvard Business School by the name of John McArthur organized a session in which he proposed the Brigham Hospital merge with the Massachusetts General Hospital to create a new organization called Partners Healthcare System. None of the surrounding hospitals in the area were notified when the decision to go ahead with the plan was made. Not only was the merger established because of the growth of market share but the organization would be able to capture a bigger portion of the market and therefore have a greater influence on the insurance companies and the other payers. Negotiating insurance contracts is a very important asset and strategy to the success of the hospital financially. When word broke of the merger other local hospitals felt a need to respond by finding new partners themselves to obtain leverage on the insurance companies as well gain market share. BI started looking for hospital to merge with and found Deaconess to be the best fit. This merger......

...idea had a future is when true managers come into play. A manager in today's world can range from 18 to 80. They run anything from a corner shop to fortune 500 companies. They are found almost everywhere in everyday life for e.g. Government departments and schools. The name manager is so diverse, they can be found in every country on the globe. There are three types of managers, the first line managers, middle managers and top managers. In today's world managers are not limited to men but women as well are contributing, even though the number of women managers are growing in the first line and middle managers, according to only 11% of the U.S fortune 500 companies are led by women and that figure drops considerably to 5% in the positions of Chairman, President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Operating Officer and executive Vice President. In the U.S many companies are taking the steps to recognise the "woman  as a manager and give them the praise that they deserve. Some of these companies are Southwest Airlines, Avon, Hewlett Packard, Kraft foods and Xerox. I would now explain the different types of managers but first a quote from Mary Parker Follett "management is the art of getting things done through other people.  First level managers: these are managers at the lowest level, just above non managers; they direct the activities of the employees for e.g. a foreman on a building site. Middle management: these are managers who occupy the space on......

...A Good Manager A successful manager usually means a successful company, or store, or business. He or she must posses certain qualities in order to be successful. Some might consider the six most important qualities to be strong communication skills, flexibility, imagination, high level of energy, problem solving skills, and of course the desire to be a great manager. After we look at these must have qualities, we ask, does a great manager have to be born for the job. Clearly, some levels of natural or inherited factors are more or less apparent from one person to another, but there are also many qualities one learns or improves through education and experience. The first of the six elements for being a successful manager are strong communication/interpersonal skills. Strong communication skills are mostly acquired through life, social experience, school, sports teams, and so are mostly learned. Flexibility is also a learned trait, but it helps if a person is this way naturally - it is learned faster. Someone's imagination is an inherited trait, but it is fueled through life experiences. However an unimaginative person will usually stay that way more or less. High level of energy is also an inherited trait, but a manager can learn to be more energetic when needed. However, if he or she is not this way naturally, it may be stressful to pretend, which in turn may cause difficulty at the workplace. Problem solving skills are mostly a learned skill, and the higher the level of...

...planning, organizing, leading, and controlling. Managers are required in all the activities of organizations: budgeting, designing, selling, creating, financing, accounting, and artistic presentation; the larger the organization, the more managers are needed. Everyone employed in an organization is affected by management principles, processes, policies, and practices as they are either a manager or a subordinate to a manager, and usually they are both. 1. The art of getting things done through the efforts of other people. 2. The means by which you actually manage, that is, get things done through others. Chapter 1 Introduction to Principles of Management Managers do not spend all their time managing. When choreographers are dancing a part, they are not managing, nor are office managers managing when they personally check out a customer’s credit. Some employees perform only part of the functions described as managerial—and to that extent, they are mostly managers in limited areas. For example, those who are assigned the preparation of plans in an advisory capacity to a manager, to that extent, are making management decisions by deciding which of several alternatives to present to the management. However, they have no participation in the functions of organizing, staffing, and supervising and no control over the implementation of the plan selected from those recommended. Even independent consultants are managers, since they get most things done......
