I have no personal issue with any of the players, or any agenda to push forward. Every assessment made is merely my viewpoint on the squad selected.

After the relatively early exit from the World Cup, it was expected that the selectors will push forward with youth, and rightly so. To me its simple – if you’re not going to play in the 2019 World Cup, you shouldn’t be in the squad.

And that’s the issue I have with the selection of Saeed Ajmal. I am a huge Ajmal fan; he is a great ambassador for Pakistan cricket and has performed remarkably for us, however I am not in favour of his inclusion at this point. Will Ajmal be representing Pakistan in the 2019 World Cup at 41 years of age? I highly doubt it. I’d rather we focus on backing youth for the premier event. As well as this, who’s to say Ajmal will be as effective as he once was? He hasn’t played competitive cricket in over seven months. I wish him well as he is a great guy, but I don’t agree with his selection.

Another thing that is baffling is the exclusion of Ahmed Shehzad from the test and ODI squad. Here we have a youngster who has shown an appetite for big runs, yet the way he is treated is despicable. Shehzad was Pakistans leading run scorer in ODI cricket in 2014, the second highest scorer for Pakistan in the World Cup. He has played eight test matches, scored three hundreds with two fifties at an average close to 48. His last innings was a mammoth 176 against New Zealand, which was ended with a blow to his head. The treatment of Ahmed Shehzad is simply shocking. One of the reasons behind his exclusion is his ‘attitude problem’ and to ‘teach him a lesson’, well my question is if this is the case, why is he in the t20 squad?

Now onto something a lot more positive, Mukhtar Ahmed, a name not a lot will know of. He is selected in the t20 squad after scoring a mighty impressive 100* against Karachi…...

Geek Squad

...Question 1) STRENGTHS * Organisational Culture One prominent characteristic of the Geek Squad that can be identified from the video case is its clear organisational culture. From the old-school uniforms to the pin-up ties, the geek mobile to the identity inspector badges, the founder Robert Stephens fostered a corporate culture of fun. Armed with this ideology, Stephens managed to galvanise the job scope, making a typically monotonous task of repairing computer electronics more enjoyable for both his employees as well as the consumer. The glorified role of a Geek special agent allows employees to feel better about their jobs and themselves, obtaining a higher sense of accomplishment for playing a role in the overall company direction. This could also increase the loyalty of customers where they experience first-hand contact with a Geek Squad ‘Agents’, who were all ensured by the firm to be ‘well-liked’ and ‘socially interactive’. With a strong organisational culture, the Geek Squad would also be able to cultivate a sense unity among its employees who may come from various backgrounds and demographics. A shared culture would promote more communication and understanding as well as reduce conflict or any employee being left out. This would place the company in good stead in dealing with any future challenges. * Customer Service Focus The Geek Squad does not only place importance in the actual repair job, but the whole customer experience as well. According to him...

...Stephens to start the Geek Squad? The many changes in the environment that occurred were related to technology, computers, software, communications, entertainment, and social factors such as demographics and cultures, all things he came to realize during his consulting years. While Stephens was attending college and working towards earning a degree in computer science, he also worked as a consultant repairing televisions, computers, and several other items; however his main focus was computers. Through his consulting experience, he came to realize that most people needed help with technology, such as, how it works, its operating system, how to install software, and especially how to read and understand the manuals. 2) What changes in the purchasing patterns of (a) all consumers and (b) woman made the acquisition of Geek Squad particularly important for Best Buy? Changes in social factors such as demographics and culture helped make Geek Squad very popular. In the past, many manufacturers and retailers focused primarily on men. However, they found that woman were becoming increasingly more and more interested in the personal computing and home entertainment. Best Buy’s consumer research began indicating that woman will more than likely outspend men in the near future. Furthermore, Best Buy’s consumer research has proven that women tend to expect personal service during the purchasing and installation after the purchase, just what the Geek Squad is designed to......

Geek Squad Case Study

...all heard the name Geek Squad before. Most of us know what they do, maybe some have even taken advantage of the services they offer, but how did it get to be the household name it is today? Founder of the company, Robert Stephens, was, like all entrepreneurs, faced with an abundance of challenges before and after starting his business. Stephens was also given a great opportunity with the beginning of a trend toward personal computers when he started his business. In fact, Geek Squad had become so successful that it was brought to the attention of Best Buy, which purchased the company from Stephens in 2002 to combat some issues they thought that Geek Squad would be able to fix for them. Although they have been extremely successful up to this point, Geek Squad will need to stay ahead of the game to continue to do so, with the rapidly growing and ever changing technological world. When Robert Stephens was studying computer science, he also worked fixing computers for a research laboratory, and started consulting as well. While consulting he realized that most people needed help using and/or fixing their personal computer. In 1994 when Stephens started the company, it was in high demand because of the increase in the use of the personal computer (PC). The people not only wanted someone to help with their computer problems, but also be on time and help them understand what the problem really is, all while being friendly. When Best Buy purchased Geek Squad in 2002 for $3......

Geek Squad

...Case Assignment week #2 The Creation of Geek Squad Technology has made communication easier and quicker while at home and while out running errands. It is constantly and persistently changing and advancing around us every day. The first key environmental factor that created an opportunity for Robert Stephens to start the Geek Squad was realizing that being attempted to stay aware of the numerous environmental changes has brought on chaos and will proceed so as long there is innovation, “particularly those related to computers, technology, software, communication, and entertainment” (Kerin, 85). Many consumers had trouble and found it hard installing, operating, and using electronic products. Some of them complains that it takes time to read the manuals. However, that being the second key environmental factor, Robert Stephens, founder of the technology support company Greek Squad, came up with the solution: “I’m going to save you that time because I stay home on Saturday nights and read them for you” (85). Stephens gave up on everything that he has gained, such as an Art Institute scholarship looking forward to get his degree in Computer Science. While student he took a part time job for a research laboratory and began repairing televisions, computers, and a variety of other items. He realized that most people needed some sort of technologic help and that “they saw value in a service whose employees would show up at a specified time, be friendly, use understandable......

Geek Squad

... Robert Stephens, was a computer science college dropout that founded Geek Squad with $200 and a bicycle in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Dressed in white button-down shirts, too-short black pants, white socks and clip on ties, Geek Squad technicians (known as Agents) repaired computers in local businesses and in customer homes. Stephens had the idea that pulling up on a bicycle dressed like a “geek” would inspire a weird confidence in his computer repair skills. It did. Eight years later, Geek Squad was acquired by Best Buy for an undisclosed amount. Today, Geek Squad is comprised of over 20,000 highly skilled and specially trained computing Agents, home entertainment installers (GSI), Autotechs and appliance repair technicians (GSR’s) located in all U.S. Best Buy stores, at Geek Squad stand-alone locations as well as at service centers located nationwide. Geek Squad provides residential and commercial product repair, support, and installation services both in store and on site. Best Buy acquired Geek Squad to help develop a technological support system for its customers. At the time of acquisition, Best Buy sold computers but didn’t have an effective way to service them. It’s one thing to know the difference between two computers, but another to be able to effectively diagnose a wide range of problems and have the required parts to do so. This related acquisition allowed Best Buy and Geek Squad customers to get a premium level of customer service for their technology......

A Visit from the Goon Squad Commentary

...The world if full of unique things that no one would think about ever doing. Such is chapter 12, the PowerPoint chapter, in Jennifer Egan’s book, A Visit From the Goon Squad. The idea that a chapter can be made out of PowerPoint slides is completely different and original. Each slide has its own mini story to tell, but all of the slides together still make an overall addition to the book. One slide, titled “Mom Spots the Toy Horse,” shows Ally’s desire to please her parents. Egan manipulates PowerPoint through the positioning of text boxes, shading, and text to illustrate Ally’s devotion. Egan uses PowerPoint through the positioning of text boxes to show Ally’s desire to please. The structure of this slide is that it goes from title, to everything in the widest text box, to everything in the middle text box, to everything in the smallest text box. This creates a dynamic similar to that which one experiences when they visualize focusing. The titles of the text boxes help give a quick summary, and a general idea, of the flow of this slide. The title of the largest text box is, “I keep it on my windowsill. It’s made of apricot shells.” This text box is all about the thing itself, giving the reader all of the background knowledge necessary to understand what this toy horse is. The middle text box’s title is, “After Dad and Mom found each other again, she packed up her life in New York and met him overseas.” This text box tells the story of her parents in the past, giving the......
