Cu mai mult de 30 milioane de utilizatori în toată lumea şi o rată de creştere a numărului de utilizatori de 10-15% pe lună, activitatea de marketing pe Internet devine mult mai uşoară decât cea prin metodele clasice. Dacă se ia în consideraţie faptul că o campanie tipic de marketing determină o rată de răspuns de cel puţin 2%, teoretic rezultă un număr de răspunsuri pe Internet de câteva mii, cel puţin. Din ce în ce mai multe întreprinderi - din toate sectoarele economice - încep să realizeze potenţialul enorm al noului mediu de comunicaţie electronică, internetul. Pentru a avea acces la un auditoriu de câteva milioane de "spectatori" - şi potenţiali clienţi - marile reţele de televiziune oferă preţuri de ordinul zecilor sau sutelor de mii de dolari pentru spoturi publicitare de 30 de secunde; pentru a atinge o asemenea audienţă, doar giganţi ca IBM, Coca Cola sau Ford îşi puteau permite campanii publicitare de milioane de dolari.

McDonald’s has grown to become one of the leading fast food chains with close to 300 restaurants nationwide. Mostly branches were strategically located at the malls and commercial buildings. 1.4 Website Address www.mcdonalds.com.ph 1.5 Background History of the Company The business began in 1940, with a restaurant opened by brothers Richard and Maurice McDonald at 1398 North E Street at West 14th Street in San Bernardino, California . Their introduction of the "Speedee Service System" in 1948 furthered the principles of the modern fast-food restaurant that the White Castle hamburger chain had already put into practice more than two decades earlier. The original mascot of McDonald's was a man with a chef's hat on top of a hamburger shaped head whose name was "Speedee". Speedee was eventually replaced with Ronald McDonald by 1967 when the company first filed a U.S. trademark on a clown shaped man having puffed out costume legs. McDonald's first filed for a U.S. trademark on the name "McDonald's" on May 4, 1961, with the description "Drive-In Restaurant Services", which continues to be renewed through the end of December 2009.

They are different with the way their staff dresses and treats the customers, the wide variety of organic and healthy foods and at the same time, they are trying to maximize everyone’s experience as well as expanding their name. Bu that is all done with the help of six “must have” managerial skills which includes: teamwork, self- management, leadership, critical thinking, professionalism and communication. Out of all six “must have” managerial skills, having strong communication is the most important quality to possess in order to have a successful management especially at Trader Joe’s. Communication is the ability to express self well in verbal and nonverbal ways, and able to communicate through writing, oral presentations, giving and receiving helpful feedback to progress and to have technology utilization. In order to do all of that the management must have a strong communication skill. In all types of management tasks the first and most common thing the management does is communicating their needs, expectations and opinions to their team.

SHORT CASE STUDY: ORGANIZING THE POWER COMPANY “I do not believe in organization charts or position descriptions of any kind in this company,” declared Johnny Ramos, president and founder of the Power Company, manufacturer of men’s ready-to-wear (RTW) suits and jackets. “We are a successful and fast-rising company where I want all managers and labor to work as a team. Organization charts and descriptions make people believe they own position on a chart and want to keep it. We grew from a small company with P100,000 annual sales to a P5million enterprise because we pooled our resources, coming up with competitive products at low costs. We are not San Miguel Corporation with its complex organization charts.” Mr. Silang, the company comptroller, strongly defended the president, emphasizing that teamwork, not organization charts, is the key to success. Linda Ignacio, head of manufacturing, believed otherwise and declared the president’s view “absurd and unprogressive.” Ms. Ignacio said, “I could not run my department without organization charts and position descriptions.

...valoare acțiunilor comunicării. Comunicarea nu este decât un act izolat dar ansamblul dinamic al interacțiunilor vizează durata. C. Ascultarea – primul moment în receptarea mesajului (comunicarea=proces interactiv) Majoritatea definițiilor comunicării nu iau în considerare decât emiterea și producerea de mesaje. Este o gravă eroare – e important mereu să considerăm că, comunicarea este un proces interactiv ce începe printr-o fază de ascultare. Această etapă denumită audit, analiza situației sau diagnostic acoperă aceeași realitate: comprehensiunea așteptărilor interlocutorilor. Fără ascultare, comunicarea nu va fi decât un flux linear de informații după exemplul modelelor mecaniciste de comunicare. Analiza situației este înțeleasă adesea prin analogie cu fundația unui imobil; dacă ea este suficient de aprofundată ansamblul strategiei de comunicare va fi stabil și solid. D. Mesajele și semnele Termenul de semne este adesea neglijat. Comunicarea difuzează mesaje, adică produce un discurs într-o manieră voluntară. Aici analogia va fi în jurul figurii aisberg-ului.

...Violence in the Workplace: Getting in Front of the Causes In Order to Create a Safer Workplace By Ryan D. Howell MNGT 5000 – Management Webster University Dr. James W. Chester October 10, 2014 Executive Summary Violence in the workplace is a growing trend affecting safety, which managers at all levels are dealing with. Several factors are associated with the causes of violence in the workplace to include: individual, organizational, and social factors. Violence in the workplace affects not just the employees but also the customers and the productivity of the business. Legislation against violence in the workplace assists the victims and provides resources to managers which allow action. However, in order to get in front of the causes a business strategy must be formed through a SWOT analysis. Once a business strategy is formed then managers will be able to take action and prevent violence in the workplace. Introduction The general concept of safety in the workplace can be assumed to be important to most people. When Goodman (1968) analyzed the use of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, he concluded that while the hierarchy was not as important, the factors of workplace safety were of vital importance (p. 55). There exist several types of workplace violence, and solutions for counteracting each type. The first area to concentrate on is the culture of violence which has led to an increase in workplace violence; not just for employees but also customers......
