One technology being used by law enforcement in carrying out its duties is hidden microphones. These microphones capture conversations, or admission of guilt from a distance. This advance has changed the way police do business because in case of a traffic stop or other interactions, microphone recording eliminates discrepancies following an arrest (a). There is storage of conversation and playback so that conversations can be analyzed and processes more accurately.
The second technology that is being used by law enforcement is photo enforcement systems. These systems generate red light violations and automatically send speeding summons. This system has changed the way police do business because the police now focus on engineering practices to have equipment in place, educate the public, and involve the community in improving the safety for the motoring public. The police do not have to manually record traffic violations but simply ...
This solution explains the technology used by police systems. The sources used are also included in the solution.
Analysis of Lockheed Martin using the Burke-Litwin Causal model
Burke, W.W. & Litwin, G.H. (1992) A causal model of organizational performance and change. Journal of Management, 18(3), 523-545.
Identify key transformation or throughput processes and the relationships between them within Lockheead Martin using the Burke-Litwin Causal Model as a basis for analysis.
Limit your analysis to those transactional variables of the model.
Those variables are:
? Structure (Burke-Litwin describes structure as the arrangement of the functions, people responsibilities, authorities, communication and interactions in a way that supports the organization's mission, goals and strategy. Identify the structure of your organization, and comment on how well it fits - or not - with the strategy of your organization. Be sure to specify the structure by type: matrix, team based, functional or product departmentation, organic/mechanistic, etc..)
? Tasks and Skills (Unique or core competencies)
? Management practices (e.g. participative or centralized decision making)
? Systems and Policies (information systems, financial, marketing, production, human resources, etc.)
? Work unit climate
? Individual needs and goals
Identify each of the throughput variables in your organization and
Explain how they are interrelated. Focus on whether they fit together or work toward opposite ends. For example, Does the Human Resource System staff the organization with workers who have the right skills for the requirements of the production system? Does the compensation system quash motivation, or the climate support individual needs and goals? Does the structure fit management practices?
What synergies/problems does this cause?
