About Author:

Mr. L. G. Kulkarni is not author by profession. He is the former DY. Managing Director State Bank of India. He has written this book to give insider view of management to common man. Not much information is available about him. He is famous for his anecdotes.

About the book:

This book provides a rambling journey of a practicing manger and his experiences in the management game. Full of hilarious jokes, anecdotes and, at times, satire, the book provides an insider’s versions of the lofty platitudes and concepts of the management. It is very readable book. You will never get tired, while reading this book. You will understand what is actually happening in firms under the name of the management. This book will entertain you; make you laugh and still, will provide a insight to management.


Chapter 1: The management Game:

Management is making the best of inadequate resources in the imperfect world.

Management must not be merely useful; it has to be effective. Efficiency is input – output relationship – how much has been achieved per unit cost. Effectiveness is the plan – output relationship – how much of the plan has been achieved.

Action is more important than activity. Responsibility carried is more important than hard work you are doing. For ex. a bikini costs more than what a tiny piece of cloth it is made would warrant. This is because responsibility per square inch it carries.

Manager has to posses the numerous qualities like job knowledge, ability to plan, ability to organise, ability to handle people, ability to take risks and even take decisions.

Manager should have professional integrity. Personal integrity is must. Professional integrity is what you profess as the principles of your…...

The Names

...The Names ( revised ) This year is the tenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks: a tragic incident that impacts every aspect of the Americans’ lives. This year, there are many television programs and commemorations dedicated to the victims of the September 11 attacks. In the end of a television broadcast, Billy Collins— who was appointed United States Laureate for the years 2001-2003 in June 2001— narrated his poem: “The Names.” “The Names” was presented to the public at the first anniversary of the incident. This poem is about the people whom we lost, and the horrid day which we experienced. The first thing we notice in this poem is the names mentioned within the poem. The final count of the September 11 attacks was 2,749. It is impossible for the author to incorporate all of the names in one poem. He uses all 26 letters to symbolize the names of all the victims; he chooses one name to represent each letter. Here is an example: “I started with A, with Ackerman, as it happened, then Baxter and Calabro, Davis and Eberling, names falling into place as droplets fell through the dark.” Among all the victims, some people were unaccounted for. The author assigns the letter X to represent those missing people: “Let X stand, if it can, for the ones unfound.” During the September 11 attacks, posters and signs were made to show whom the families were looking for. The missing people were announced on TV and radio broadcasts. On each anniversary of the......

Name do?) 4. Implement the plan (Carry out the intervention.) 5. Evaluate (Did our plan work?) Structure chart: are used in structured programming to arrange program modules into a tree. Each module is represented by a box, which contains the module’s name. The tree structure visualizes the relationships between modules. IPO chart: the Input-Storage-Output Model also known as the IPO+S Model is a functional model and conceptual schema of a general system. An IPO chart/table identifies a program’s inputs, its outputs, and the processing steps required to transform the inputs into the outputs. Coupling diagram: shows which variables are passed from one module to another. Data dictionary: shows which modules use each variable and the scope of each variable (i.e. whether the variable is local or global). Which 2 design tools would you adopt to develop the design to handle the two requirements and why? I would use the Coupling diagram and Data dictionary, only cause they both seem to work closely together with the coupling it will show me something much like a flow chart oriented picture. The Data dictionary will only help to make more sense for the fact that this will allow to show what “item”, “variable name”, “data type”, “module”, plus any information I need to show for their meaning within my program.

...Names Ever since I was a little boy, I always remembered wondering how and why things were named what they are; also why/ how the words were formed. On long road trips/ vacations I would look at street signs and store names in foreign places and wonder why things were named as they were. A group of people I thought who put a lot of meaning into what they named things were the Native American Indians. All of the places, people, even animals they named were very symbolic, and had an important meaning. I feel as if in today’s world we don’t put as much thought into the things we name. Even when parents name their kids, some just slap a name on their forehead (not literally.) They don’t think about how they want their child to be raised, or they want them to become as an adult. My good friend was given a made up name when he was born because his father was drunk. To me that’s just cruel. For one thing, it would be rather hard for him to complete an essay like this, but also knowing your name which is a big part of you, has no real meaning. My name, Owen, was passed down 3 generations before me. I asked my father “why has our name been passed down this long? Why did you name me it?” he told me that his great grandfather was born into slavery and explained to me how he was not given a name until he was released and shipped to Jamaica. There, he was adopted at a young age into a family. The family said my great grandfather was a fighter; taking a lot of abuse and seeing a......

...physical characteristics such as data transmission and error rates can be related to distance and that protocols can be optimized for an assumed operational environment. Convenience, however, may dictate use of certain protocols over a wider distance range than is optimum. From the OSI perspective, most of the protocols used in a LAN should be the same as ones used in a WAN context. Security-relevant LAN characteristics All data traffic is available to every node in the LAN zone. There is no routing or switching in the conventional sense; rather there is selection. There is routing and filtering among zones, provided by devices such as bridges and gateways. An adapter is required between the DTE and the LAN. This adapter goes by many names; in this essay, we shall call it the network interface unit (NIU). The NIU provides physical and logical conversions. For example, the voltages and ways of representing digital signals on the LAN are probably different from those used internal to the DTE. The first NIUs were external to the DTE. The NIU was connected to the DTE using the same standard that is used to connect to an external modem. External NIUs continue to be available. Efficiencies of space and power are achieved if the NIU is moved internal to the DTE. The NIU may be an internal board, whose interface is the backplane of the DTE, or it may be a chip on the main circuit board of the DTE. Every NIU has an address. When messages are inserted on the network, the address of......

Case Study Name Game

...The Case Name game deals with a branding problem. The Case revolves around two hospital’s naming Ridgecrest Medical Center and Robinson –Martinez Hospital. As Ridgecrest Medical Center purchases Robinson –Martinez Hospital, there emerges a problem of formulating a new brand name. Mr. Brian Garcia , Chief Executive Officer of Ridgecrest Medical Center was assigned a task of creating new brand name that will ensure best possible market place results and formulating brand management plan that will yield optimal results. The first alternative that I propose is Co-Branding strategy , that is combining the current brands to make one merged brand This retains both their names to please the very loyal followers and creating a unified brand that suggests an integrated system with a broader range of resources for patients. The disadvantages for this alternative is that it is very costly to establish a new combines brand name. Due to the change in hospital’s name ,it creates a confusion among public regarding the services and Insurance coverage. The Second alternative that I propose is Multi Brand Strategy. Creating an umbrella brand with two unique brands underneath. This creates an overall brand for a system that focuses on health of patients and allowing each hospital to retain their individual identities. This helps in keeping each hospital’s loyal customer base and less likely to create confusion among physicians and insurance companies.As a health system, people will......

...important contribution of value net analysis Complementors typically are products or services that have possible impact on the value of a firm 's own products or services. Those who produce complements are usually referred to as complementors. Powerful computers are of no value to a user unless there is software that runs on them. Similarly, new and better software is possible only if the hardware on which it can be run is available. This is equally true in the video game industry, where the sales of game consoles and video games complement each other. Nintendo' s success in the early 1 990s was a result of their ability to manage their relationships with their complementors. They built a security chip into the hardware and then licensed the right to develop games to outside firms. These firms paid a royalty to Nintendo for each copy of the game sold. The royalty revenue enabled Nintendo to sell game consoles at close to their cost, thereby increasing their market share, which, in turn, caused more games to be sold and more royalties to be generated. 2.

...Mission, Vision, Values, & Managment In today's post-recession workforce, gaining employment is so difficult that once hired, life has new meaning. The mission, vision, and values may mean different things to managers. With a closer look into an organization, from the newest employees up to the experienced senior management, it is found that many of the staff members do not have knowledge enough to recall the mission and vision statement. The military is used as an example, setting the standard for other public and private entities. In this case, let's examine a human resources unit in the United States Air Force. The Air Force Civilian Services mission and vision statement aim to "provide elite administrative, operation and technical support for the Air Force vision; Global vigilance, reach, and power" ('Our Mission & Vision', 2016). The mission and vision statement must work together to meet the organizational goals. In examining the core competencies, one must consider the true definition and rationale. Also, the Air Force has a set of strategic goals that determine the long-range direction of the organization. The attitudes, behaviors and goals of each Air Force civilian in the group are meant to demonstrate alignment with the vision, mission, values, and competencies. For a company to manifest values and a culture that leads to success, these vital mantras must be reiterated, exercised, memorized, and done by all employees. Mission Statment There is a......

...My first recommendation would be to continue to invest and grow in previously under-penetrated markets. By applying a lot of focus in this area, the company would be able to optimise on the lack of existing focus in the countries, and make a name for themselves worldwide. Burberry have already positioned themselves to be able to do such a thing in China with the acquisition of the Burberry business in China. For about £65m, the Group acquired 50 stores across 30 cities, which had previously been operated by its Hong Kong based franchisee. This acquisition gives the Group control of the Burberry brand in the fastest-growing luxury market in the world. Ten new stores have already been opened since the acquisition, including the brand’s most digitally-advanced flagship in the world in Beijing. Merchandising and inventory initiatives have successfully driven productivity in existing stores, with comparative store sales up about 30% in the second half of the year. By continuing with this focus in China specifically, where they have already had signs of success and growth, the company would be able to build on their brand name and attract new markets throughout China, and also the rest of the Far East as China tends to be a trend setter in that part of the world. This strategy would be a relatively low risk one for Burberry, as they already have the foundations there that are showing success and so, with use of good market research to find out specific locations, this could...
