Imagine if you will the amount of data that flows through our communication lines at any given time, you will still be counting long after my lifespan and beyond, there’s that much data. What we witness as everyday patrons who succumb to the thresholds in data communication restrictions if it were to run without direction, then all of our communication would experience extreme latency during transfer. Because of this constant object standing in the way of smooth data transfers, Standards were put in place to monitor and maintain the process.

Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers or IEEE Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers or IEEE, was officially formed in January 1963 from two individual companies the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE), and American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE). Together they would design what we have come to know today as our internet. The IEEE main function and purpose is to instill a scientific and educational means to advance theory and practices of Electronics, Computer engineering, Electrical, and Communications in their own respective fields. IEEE plays a very big part, much like a conductor for an orchestra, IEEE is the “conductor” and the instruments are the organizations that work under IEEE in organizing our data.

International Telecommunication Union (ITU)
A well-known Standards Organization known as the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), is an agency of the United Nations. Its original name was the International Telegraph Union, and it was founded in Paris in 1865. It serves the field of information and communications technology. Headquartered in Geneva, it has a membership of 193 countries and over 700 private-sector entities and academic institutions. It operates…...

...available at http://www.emeraldinsight.com/1463-7154.htm BPMJ 8,3 218 Ubiquitous organization: organizational design for e-CRM M.F. Smith & Associates, Inc., Morristown, New Jersey, USA Keywords Information systems, Transaction costs, Organizational design, Teams, E-commerce Abstract In 1998 J.P. Morgan's analysts forecast that the market for e-CRM (customer relationship management) solutions would grow rapidly. Since then more than 700 e-CRM firms have emerged. The convergence of information technologies caused enterprise information systems providers to add e-CRM functionality to their systems, thus further increasing the number of e-CRM suppliers. The proliferation of e-CRM concepts, models and technologies causes significant confusion and uncertainty. Corporate executives question the economic benefits of investing in multimillion dollar e-CRM projects, ponder about the right business and organizational models for e-CRM, and are uncertain which e-CRM models and technologies will prove both profitable and sustainable over time. With so many failed e-CRM initiatives some executives wonder whether e-CRM is not simply a hype. In the present paper what e-CRM is, from where the economic benefits from investing in e-CRM derive, and the evolution of alternative e-CRM models are elaborated. It is also argued that successful e-CRM projects are not narrowly departmental, but instead organization-wide initiatives. The paper presents a conceptual framework for e-CRM......

...created to work and write standards and are open to anyone to participate. They strive for broad representation of all interested parties and encourage global participation. IEEE standards have a comprehensive listing of working groups but not all have public viewable websites. I will focus on the Information Technology working group with the sub-directory of Software and Systems Engineering. The IEEE Computer Society is the largest association for computer professionals in the world and was founded more than 50 years ago. The Software and Systems Engineering Group/Committee mission is to develop and maintain a family of software and systems engineering standards that are relevant, coherent, comprehensive and effective in use. These standards are developed for use by practitioners, organizations, and educators to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of their software engineering processes, and also to improve communications between acquirers and suppliers and the quality of delivered software and systems containing software. They also work to support and promote a Software Engineering Body of Knowledge, certification mechanisms for software engineering professionals, and other products contributing to the profession of software engineering.

...Chapter 4: Feasibility of Proposed Standards CHAPTER 4: Feasibility of Proposed Standards Section 213(a)(3) of the Clean Air Act presents statutory criteria that EPA must evaluate in determining standards for nonroad engines and vehicles. The standards must "achieve the greatest degree of emission reduction achievable through the application of technology which the Administrator determines will be available for the engines or vehicles to which such standards apply, giving appropriate consideration to the cost of applying such technology within the period of time available to manufacturers and to noise, energy, and safety factors associated with the application of such technology." This chapter presents the technical analyses and information that form the basis of EPA's belief that the proposed emission standards are technically achievable accounting for all the above factors. 4.1 CI Recreational Marine The proposed emission standards CI recreational marine engines are summarized in the Executive Summary. We believe that manufacturers will be able to meet these standards using technology similar to that required for the commercial marine engine standards. This section discusses technology currently used on CI recreational marine engines and anticipated technology to meet the proposed standards. In addition, this section discusses the emission test procedures and not-to-exceed requirements. 4.1.1 Baseline Technology for CI Recreational Marine Engines We developed......

...Rewriting a Job Requirement Rewriting a Job Requirement Writing a job requirement is quite possibly the most important duty of filling a role. This description is the first contact many likely employees have with an organization. This description sets the tone for what is expected of the employee as well as certain expectations of this job. When searching for a new career many will read through hundreds of these descriptions and hopefully the one which your company writes will catch that candidate best suited for the job. From job requirements to mission statements and compensation, this outline is going to set the high bar for which only the most talented job seekers will apply. Determining the need for a job is very important. Whether there is an influx of retirees or the company is expanding, recruiting new and exciting talent is a great way for a company to continue to succeed. Through globalization we are seeing that many companies are able to recruit the best talent from around the world. Not only are companies such as the one I have chosen, AT&T, expanding globally but through internet the talent for these jobs are limitless. When staffing in the workplace one needs to identify work requirements. What type of skills will best suit the work environment or kind of personality will fit best. How many people will we need to fill this position and what skill mix is necessary? Through communications with management we will find exactly what they believe will be...

...design a pay system, it identifies important characteristics for each position so that each characteristic can be, defined, and weight with compensable factors (Cascio, 2013). Job evaluation is a process to evaluate and rank jobs in terms of their overall importance to the organization and create a job hierarchy. It also supports the organization structure and pay differences between jobs, ranging from managers at the top to junior, entry-level employees at the bottom. Position of hierarchy is determined by the weight factor (awarded points) (Cascio, 2013). External survey to identify pay rates in relevant labor markets. Relevant labor market would include direct competitors operating in the same or similar business environment and location (Cascio, 2013). Total the point awarded each position during the job evaluation process, and use point totals to establish pay grades relevant to job positions in the hierarchy. Assign a dollar value to each job position in the hierarchy. Position in the market When looking at compensation and benefits one must look at their main competitors. Knowing one’s completion gives one a view of who in their market might sway or temp employees to leave the organization.

...Working Group in the IEFT The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has an overall mission to make the internet work better and to run faster. The way that they accomplish this is by creating high quality and technical documents that are relevant to influence the way that people use, design and manage through the internet (Working Groups). Within the IETF, there are many different working groups. Working groups in the IETF have primary mechanisms so that the development of IETF and the specifications and guidelines have certain recommendations and standards (Working Groups). Working groups were created so that it can address and fix certain problems. Working groups usually do not last long because once it completes what it was out to do then they no longer are generally needed. There are many active working groups in the IETF. One of the working groups is called Applications Area Working Group (APPSAWG). This group was started in October of 2010. This group focuses on many different topics which might be the reason to why there group has been around for a few years. Some of the main points in which APPSAWG works on include Well-defined security issues that are relevant to multiple application technologies (APPSAWG). Another of the main points that APPSAWG focuses on according to Applications Area Working Group is “small-scale additions to the protocol stack for HTTP and other application technologies, mostly related to service discovery and meta-data”.......

...October 2002 national competency standards for the enrolled nurse Introduction Description of Enrolled Nurse National Competency Standards Assessing Competence Glossary of Terms Introduction The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council (ANMC) is a peak national nursing and midwifery organisation established in 1992 with the purpose of developing a national approach to nursing and midwifery regulation. The ANMC works in conjunction with the state and territory nursing and midwifery regulatory authorities (NMRAs) to produce national standards which are an integral component of the regulatory framework to assist nurses and midwives to deliver safe and competent care. The standards include the national competency standards for enrolled nurses which were first adopted by the ANMC in the early 1990s. These have been reviewed and revised regularly since then. Other standards developed by the ANMC for implementation by the NMRAs include the competency standards for registered nurses, midwives and nurse practitioners, codes of professional conduct and ethics, and a range of position statements and guidelines. The full list of standards, position papers and guidelines produced by the ANMC can be viewed on the website.

Three years have gone by since Kaplan University Online restructured its business model. I was part of the massive laid off that shook the online for-profit schools back in the fall of 2011. Who is Kaplan University Online? Kaplan University Online is a division of the Washington Post (Hechinger, 2013, ∂ 1) an online university of higher learning education offering certificates, associates, bachelors and graduate degrees (Kaplan University, n.d., ∂ 1). Kaplan’s mission and market niche was to enroll adults or working adults who want to complete a college degree but neither has the time to enroll in a traditional campus. That being said, Kaplan was new player in the market competing against other for profit schools such as Devry Institute, ITT, Phoenix University to name a few. In 2007, I was recruited by Kaplan’s HR department to work as an inside sales representative. Myself and 12 other individuals went through a 2-week training class covering Kaplan’s culture, Fafsa (free application for student aid), compliance and boilerplate sales script. The training was intense and strict focusing mostly on the sales script and preaching Kaplan’s ethics, integrity and mission.

...Organizational Structure MGT/330 September 26, 2011 Tyler Allen Organizational Structure Organizational Structure is a way or method through use of hierarchy that a group, organization, business, people or objects, collaborate to achieve success on one common goal. There are three types of organizational structure; functional structure is specialized and grouped according to business functions and skills they require, divisional structure the divisional structure groups each organizational function into a division. Each division within a divisional structure contains all the necessary resources and functions within it, and the matrix structure which is a structure that groups employees by both function and product. Functional Structure Functional structure is the structure that Aldi’s grocery store uses. This company starts with operational manager who is the manager over a certain division which is broken down by states, the district manager is over a certain amount of stores in that city, the store managers the person in charge of that particular store, shift managers who are over the cashiers which are the employees. Once a month Aldi’s divisional manager has a meeting with all the district managers and store managers in his division. They discuss; insurance, sales, customer service, and store standards. Once the meeting has taken place the store managers will have a meeting with their employees to discuss changes or concerns that needs to be addressed. This......

...Organization Raven Johnson-Rumph University of Phoenix Organization Use your own organization, or select one with which you are familiar. Prepare a 1,000-word (minimum) paper in which you evaluate the organizing function of management as it relates to at least two of the following organizational resources. (translate the organizational chart for the departments controlling these functions into words for your paper) Physical assets Monetary Human resources Knowledge Technology Do not just discuss what these functions are – be sure to describe how the department is organized. For example, if you are discussing the accounting or finance department (which controls monetary assets) include the title of the department head, titles of mid-level supervisors, and titles of individuals who report to them, as well as what functions they each perform. You do not need to include the names of the individuals; only the position title Management and Leadership In business, "management" is sometimes considered "whatever needs to be done just to keep things afloat." However, for businesses to grow and remain healthy, one must master certain basic skills in management and leadership – skills that will help to avoid the crisis situations where organizations have to do "whatever it takes to stay afloat.” The basic skills can include problem solving and decision making, planning, meeting management, delegation,......

...legislation) and reactions to trade union growth. In the early stages of the Industrial Revolution, the extraordinary codes of discipline and fines imposed by factory owners were, in part, a response to the serious problem of imposing standards of discipline and regularity on an untrained workforce. In the 1840s common humanity and political pressure began to combine with enlightened self-interest among a few of the larger employers to make them aware of alternative ways of managing their workforce, other than coercion, sanctions, or monetary reward. Theorists also suggest that the ways in which organisations choose to manage their employees are in a state of transition. Labour management practices have assumed new prominence in the 1990s as concerns persisted about global competition, the internationalisation of technology and the productivity of workers. It is argued that these market input push work organisations to adjust their system of managerial control strengthen effective utilisation of human resources. The assignment consist in studying the need for new approach to the management of people in order to reflect the way in which organisations are evolving at the start of the 21st century. To proceed I will first introduce the debate concerning organization evolution and the need for new approaches to manage people.

...Running head: UNWRAPPING ISLLC STANDARD NUMBER Unwrapping ISLLC Standard Number 1 Myka N. Walker Grand Canyon University: EDA 534 January 11, 2012 The initial collaborative learning community assignment was the unwrapping of ISLLC standard number one. A multiplicity of issues was anticipated in the beginning as this was a group assignment. Typically, group assignments can be challenging due to the varying opinions of the group’s membership. In reality, only two problems arose during the unwrapping process. The first problem surfaced in the beginning of the week. Several members of the group were unsure of how to complete the assignment. A discussion took place and each member contributed thoughts about what the assignment required and how it should be completed. The second problem was the division of work. Each of the ISLLC standards consists of four facets: knowledge, skills, enduring understandings and essential questions. There are five members in the yellow group. One group member quickly assumed the leadership role and created a rotating schedule. The schedule allows each person to tackle a different facet of the standards each week. The schedule also allows each person to compile the assignments and submit them. This was a very equitable way to split the work and all group members agreed to follow the schedule. The unwrapping of the ISLLC standards is a valuable process for any future principal. If the standards are going to be......
