IMPLEMENTATIONFor MBO to work effectively, it should be considered as top priority by management and shouldtherefore be a continuous process that works from the ‘top down’ as well as the ‘bottom up’since objectives are to be linked at one level to those at the next level. Most importantly goalsshould be S.M.A.R.T i.e. specific, measurable, attainable, results-oriented and time bound. Goalsshould be specific so that those involved understand what is expected; measurable, in terms ofassessing results; attainable since it makes no sense setting goals that are beyond the capabilitiesof your employees; results-oriented () and time bound since they should be a set date toaccomplish goals, if not, employees would become laid back because there was no deadline. Ingeneral, we had identified what we considered that the best way to implement MBO was byfollowing our own seven step process.Step 1. Organisational goals should be clearly clarified and communicated to all membersof the organisation. This way everyone involved would have a clear understanding of thenew goals, in terms of what the organisation wants to achieve, what is expected of themand the importance of their involvement to accomplish them. There should be morecommitment and an increase in efforts towards the accomplishment of those set goals.Step 2. The organisational structure must now be reviewed and designed so that it isflexible and promotes effective communication, quick decision making and promptfeedback. Frankly, the structure that the Goodman Company had employed before thenew process clearly could not work after the process was implemented since the structurecould not facilitate group work. Mr. Goodman would have to structure the groups in terms of specifying roles, norms, status, size and the degree to which members areattracted to each other and are motivated to stay in the group. Moreover, Mr.…...

Young Goodman Brown

..."Young Goodman Brown" tells the tale of a young Puritan man drawn into a covenant with the Devil. Brown's illusions about the goodness of his society are crushed when he discovers that many of his fellow townspeople, including religious leaders and his wife, are attending a Black Mass. At the end of the story, it is not clear whether Brown's experience was nightmare or reality, but the results are nonetheless the same. Brown is unable to forgive the possibility of evil in his loved ones and as a result spends the rest of his life in desperate loneliness and gloom. Though a work of fiction, "Young Goodman Brown'' is widely considered to be one of the most effective literary works to address the hysteria surrounding the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. Hawthorne is also remembered for helping to establish the short story as a respected form of literature and as a proponent of instilling morals and lessons into his writing. Source: Short Stories for Students, ©2012 Gale Cengage. "Young Goodman Brown" by Nathaniel Hawthorne chronicles the disturbing dream of a young Puritan man in Salem. In the dream, Goodman Brown comes face to face with evil and is forced to examine the nature of evil in man. He is disgusted by the evil he encounters, not realizing his own involvement.

Young Goodman Brown

...In the story Young Goodman Brown, the two major characters are Young Goodman Brown and Faith, who are married. They have been married for three months now and they seem to be in love. Faith is Goodman Brown’s soul –mate. She is getting used to being married and enjoying life. Her life seems to be going her way most of the time and she is just getting her life stated. Goodman Brown treats her like she is his world. He adores her and loves her innocence, purity, and young side of her. Young Goodman Brown is not exactly a hero. I believe he is trying to find himself in the story but I would not consider him to be a hero. Why you may ask? Well he sided with evil. He took the chance of disobeying the people he cared about and went against his religion. But, in some ways the way he found out who the people around him (his loved ones and his close friends) were. The truth was unveiled but only he could see it and by doing this he was a hero. He was a hero because he saw the truth and kept it as a burden in his life. He was forever changed. He was a hero for accepting the truth and moving on. One symbol in the story was the ‘traveler’s staff’. It was in some ways a serpent coming to tempt Young Goodman Brown. It showed that he was not strong enough to refuse the temptations of the devil. The serpent is used in many other stories to symbolize evil, such as Adam and Eve or even the Disney story of Aladdin. As you can see the serpent is used as a symbol of evil or the devil. Also...

Young Goodman Brown

...Essay #2 Interpretations of Young Goodman Brown Nathaniel Hawthorne’s story of Young Goodman Brown is a story of an impressionable and curious young man who ventured into the forest in Salem, Massachusetts to witness the witches Sabbath. Brown leaves his young bride Faith against her wishes to go on this journey, feeling some guilt as he walked away from her, “Poor little Faith!” thought he, for his heart smote him. “What a wretch am I, to leave her on such an errand!” (Hawthorne 606). Once in the forest Brown meets the Devil. As Brown and the Devil continue their walk through the woods the Devil tells him stories of his own Father and Grandfather walking this same dark path that Young Goodman Brown has taken. “Good goodman Brown! I have been as well acquainted with your family as with ever a one among the Puritans; that’s no trifle to say” (Hawthorne 607). Goodman Brown enters the woods and has many ghostly and confusing experiences that changed his life forever. Brown wasn’t sure when he awoke in the woods if his experience was a dream or if it really happened however; the events that he witnessed changed his life forever. “Be it so if you will. But alas! It was a dream of evil omen for the young goodman Brown. A stern, a sad, a darkly meditative, a distrustful, if not a desperate man, did he become, from the night of that fearful dream”. (Hawthorne 614). Michael Tritt wrote his interpretation of the Hawthorne’s story, “Young Goodman Brown” and The Psychology of......

The Story of Young Goodman Brown

...Destruction of Faith: The Story of Young Goodman Brown The story of “Young Goodman Brown” by Nathaniel Hawthorne, chronicles the dream of a young man struggling with his beliefs in the Puritan society in Salem. In the dream, Goodman Brown is forced to examine evil as it exists in men and struggles to maintain the balance with the good that he knows. He becomes acutely aware of evil through his encounter with the devil, and is completely disillusioned from the experience. The significance of the text relies heavily on the reader being able to discover the meaning of Goodman Brown’s encounter in the woods. The story begins with Goodman Brown’s leaving his wife Faith to run a late night errand. Though she makes an attempt to deter his departure he still goes. Faith is his conscience, the purveyor of something good, which is what Goodman hopes for. Hawthorne writes that Goodman Brown believes Faith “is a blessed angel on earth; and after this one night, I’ll cling to her skirts and follow her to heaven”. Goodman Brown hopes that Faith, his love, will redeem him after he completes his “evil purpose” (Hawthorne). When he encounters the devil he uses the pull of his conscience, “Faith”, as the reason for his late arrival, he states that “Faith kept me back awhile” (Hawthorne). Goodman’s statement magnifies his awareness of his conscience and faith in God, as he accepts that the meeting in the woods will not bring good but evil. When he encounters the “fellow......

Analysis on Young Goodman Brown

...“Young Goodman Brown” by Nathaniel Hawthorne There has been much speculation and analysis on Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “Young Goodman Brown.” Each and every one has their own opinions about what Hawthorne really meant about this short story, but of course you can tell by their accreditation which source is more likely to be accurate. In “Young Goodman Brown”, the main character, Goodman Brown, experiences a life changing revelation at the beginning of this short story. The experience is a walk through the woods, something that he states his father and father’s father embarked on. This particular journey shapes his life and changes him forever. What is particularly peculiar about this journey is that it goes through the woods at night. And during this time period if you were caught in the woods at night you were considered a Satan worshiper, doing the Devil’s brood, or practicing witchcraft, which meant all the same things during this era. We know Young Goodman Brown is a Puritan based on his belief system, so this experience isn’t one he is looking forward to, but he knows he has to do it. Kind of like getting a shot, you know you have to do it, and it’s good for you, but you are hesitant about doing it. So along the journey he meets with a man that looks similar to him, but older. The man is kind of dark and shady, and he carries a staff that looks like a serpent. So the symbolism there represents that this man is the Devil. Throughout the duration of his journey, Goodman......

...Young Goodman Brown Diana Higgins Everest University In reading Nathaniel Hawthorne's story Young Goodman Brown I see this was a tale made to show the true nature of most individuals, to expose hypocrisy’s in this tale of witchcraft and the towns people living double lives It shows there true character. It was a suspense story from start to finish. He was man with a strong will and was true believe in all things good when he set out on his journey. His wife faith witch I think also represents his own faith asks him to stay with her and not be out on this one night. The first quote I chose I chose is ‘Say thy prayers, dear Faith, and go to bed at dusk, and no harm will come to thee’ this one will also tie in with my second. I want to know if by him saying this to her he was doing it out of guilt because he was sneaking out to meet the witches in the woods or was it because the wife was speaking of dreams and he wanted her to pray because he was worried about her. In the end he still left and on his journey he held tight to his faith even when told his father and grandfather had chosen the darker side he still declined and was going to turn back when he saw faith and went all the way into the woods. Where the whole town was pretty much but they were different here and they were had his wife to bring in as a new member but in the morning he's in town and everything is back to normal well everything but him there is no......

Young Goodman Brown

...short story, Young Goodman Brown, as I would see it, is one of the single most noteworthy short stories ever composed. The narrative is so firmly woven, the dialog genius and subtle, and the composition are amazingly sharp. I believe that the story is a great deal more widespread. First off, there's almost little to show that Goodman Brown's adventure is particularly sexual, and I feel that Hawthorn's worries were considerably more likened to akin to hypocrisy and false desires we have, and how we accordingly deceive ourselves. The story begins in Salem town, Massachusetts during the time when the Puritans populated the little state. From that point our protagonist takes a "dreary road" into the close-by forest, landing him in the somewhere down in heart of the "haunted forest" to him. Each of the distinctive settings is essential to the importance of the story. The setting of the story, Salem, Massachusetts, is rich with history, most on a very basic level the Salem Witch Trials. The Puritans who lived there all developed so suspicious of one another that they blamed a few for their own number of witchcraft. Youthful Goodman Brown may be a psychological story in that setting may be deciphered as an impression of Goodman Brown's inner state .The dubious light cast by the time of day may be reflective of his desire to hide his own sins. The climax of the story is situated in a terrible vision in the most profound, darkest piece of the forest. Here Goodman Brown accepts he......

...Kazuki Robertson Young Goodman Brown Paul Ohler Cohort #25 On a daily basis, we are launched into new experiences that test our certain point of view's. Some go as far as to twist all our previous knowledge and leave us with nothing but doubt in our minds; This was true for Young Goodman Brown the night he left his wife Faith to wander into the woods. Some would conclude Goodman became one with the devil when his initiation took place deep in the forest but his initiation.The strong symbolism scattered throughout the story brings out it's natural good vs evil plot and even shows similarities to Adam and eve. Young Goodman Brown was a Protestant man along with the whole population of his village. He has a wife named Faith that he has been married to for a short period of 3 months. Both his Father and Grandfather were religious and contributed to the society of the village. Overall, the introduction of his character portrays Goodman as one with good morals. Slowly over the course of the short story Young Goodman Brown does not change himself but begins to question if his morals and conscience are religiously purposeful. One strong characteristic Nathaniel Hawthorne shows in Young Goodman Brown is his innocence. His name "Young Goodman Brown" is a derivative of a justly innocent man and his wife Faith is shown to be his true belief. There are a lot of symbolic objects throughout the story and one includes his wife's pink ribbon. Pink is a color of youth and innocence......

Young Goodman Brown

...Not So Obvious Evil Comes in Many Forms "Young Goodman Brown", written by Nathaniel Hawthorne and "The Rocking Horse Winner", by D.H. Lawrence, share a similar theme as both protagonists are young men finding themselves in unscrupulous situations. While Young Goodman Brown is being impacted by what appears to be an overwhelming fear of sin itself, Paul is facing issues of pride, greed, acceptance, and love; they are both fighting a common enemy, moral corruption. While Brown had and that was fairly recognizable, Paul had an adversary one would not normally expect. In the story of “Young Goodman Brown” the main character Goodman Brown is faced with a decision as to whether or not to join the legion of evil doers in his Puritan community. He comes face to face with the devil himself once he enters a forest. The devil does not hesitate to let Brown know that he has been waiting for him and begins encouraging him to leave the life he knows and become one who will recognize all sin. Goodman Brown is under the assumption that those around him are innocent and pure because they attend church and share his same religious convictions. Once he leaves his home and wife, Faith for the night to venture into the forest, he soon realizes that all those good and kind hearted people he has known his entire life are associates of the devil. Satan has been waiting patiently for Goodman Brown to join him and once Brown enters the forest he uses the relationships Brown has with those...

Young Goodman Brown

...Rachel Pilkinton Mrs. Dierks English Composition 2 January 21, 2012 Dream or Reality? Nathaniel Hawthorne’s story, “Young Goodman Brown”, is set during the Salem witch hunts and trials in the Salem Village. The true evil of this time, I believe, is not the people accused of being witches, but the accusers, the “witch hunters”, and the people who murdered innocent people for heresay, are the true evil of this time. I believe the story itself is all a dream, a dream that represents an actual reality; a reality that shows what is thought to be good is actually evil. Young Goodman Brown, like his grandfather and father, hunted what they thought was evil, like witches, Indians, medicine men, shamans, etc. He believed the work he was doing was for the good. I believe this is a dream showing Goodman Brown that the work that he , his family, and his fellow towns people are and have done in the name of God, may in fact be the work of the Devil, maybe the line between good and evil is blurring a little for Young Goodman Brown: when he arrives deep in the forest, he sees all the people in his life that represents good: his revered pastor, the good ole Deacon Gookin, Goody Cloyse; the old woman that taught him his catechism( the principles of Christianity), and still to this day, his spiritual guide, he even thought he saw his dead father, his mother, and all the people he believed to be the most holiest of people gathered......

The Allegorical Young Goodman Brown

...The Allegorical Young Goodman Brown The story about Young Goodman Brown centers around the allegory of a man pitted against his past and his desires to reach beyond that which his benighted heaven would put before him. The allegory is Christian due to the references in Young Goodman Brown to the devil and Satan; it only seems logical that the crux of the story is based upon the religious imagery of Hawthorne's New England in the times of Salem and active religious strife. The beginning of the story mentions the goodman's wife, Faith. The names of the characters alone serve as an indication of what Hawthorne puts as an obvious religious allegory with the goodman and faith soon to be pitted against an unspeakable evil. The goodman even swears that after this night he will "cling to her skirts and follow her to heaven." The devil awaits Young Goodman Brown as he states that the clock of the old south was striking but a few minutes past (Hawthorne is stating how quickly the devil can move--intensifying the airs of the preternatural). Young Goodman Brown replies to the devil that faith was keeping him away--Hawthorne's play on words should not be overlooked as this also leads to the realization that a man (a good one) can deal with the devil and possibly win. At this stage in the story the reader still has hope for the goodman who must now deal with what he feels is his duty honor-bound. A "good man" in Hawthorne's day was a person who came from a proper lineage. This......

Young Goodman Brown

...A Deeper Look into the Soul of Young Goodman Brown Young Goodman Brown is a very well developed character for appearing in a short story making him a round and dynamic character. He is a young, white man living in Puritan times in Salem, North Carolina during the Salem Witch Trials. Although he falls from grace at the end of the story, Brown is a very religious man. He is very trusting of others, and he is very much in love with his young wife, Faith. As author Arthur E. Robinson points out, “Young Goodman Brown” is clearly ironic in its continued stress upon the protagonist’s title. Similarly the name Faith, given to Brown’s wife, is played upon in such statements as “Faith kept me back a while” and “My Faith is gone.” Nor is it coincidence that Brown and his wife are subjects of a common irony.” She is what keeps him held to his beliefs for so long through the woods. Throughout the story he is led to believe that the innocent and peaceful world around him is full of lies and deceit. The stranger in the woods leads him astray from the Christian roots of his family. It is said that the devil comes to people is many forms. In this case, he comes to Brown in the familiar form of his father. This misleading disguise made the words he spoke much easier to believe although Brown knew that the man he walked with was not his father. In the beginning, Brown believed strongly in the goodness of those in his community such as Goody Cloyse and Deacon Gookin until the “devil”......

Young Goodman Brown and the Lottery

...Young Goodman Brown and the Lottery Symbolism Use In: "Young Goodman Brown" and "The Lottery" The authors, Shirley Jackson and Nathaniel Hawthorne, both frequently use symbols within their stories "The Lottery" and "Young Goodman Brown." Symbols are utilized as an enhancement tool to stress the theme of each story. Hawthorne uses names and objects to enhance the theme, and Jackson mainly utilizes names to stress the theme, although she does have one object as a symbol of great importance to the theme. The stories both contain symbols describing evil. The majority of Hawthorne's symbols describe religion (both good and evil), but Jackson’s symbols reflect the evil nature within society as a whole. There exists a symbolic act in each story. The short stories both share the use of symbols, but the symbols are used to express different thoughts in ones mind while reading them. The stories "Young Goodman Brown" and "The Lottery" both use names as symbols. Hawthorne uses the names Young Goodman Brown and Faith to portray nice, descent people. The name Faith alone implies a faithful and Christian individual as stated "And Faith, as the wife was aptly named," (211). Jackson uses the name Mr Graves throughout her story; he is the coordinator of the lottery. She needs not give any explanation to the name, as it speaks for itself (a symbol of death). Various other names are used as symbols within each story; however, these mentioned are the most significant names to the theme. The......
