#Primary Characteristics what a company expects as a MBA graduates
Relation with conflict and accomplishment
During AMCIS conference.
As you may all know, some amount of conflict is necessary to get high performance. Just pursuing tasks will not promise accomplishment. So we can assume that many value “how” rather than “just did” and we need to care this, conflict could be a fate. By the way, does that apply to real situation like, in office? We should think about this again. will keep searching for articles about conflict.
Hospitals are never fun for children, and we’ve seen a number of initiatives to help keep them calm, frommusical dentist drills to interactive LED walls. Now the Alberta Children’s Hospital in Canada has introduced MEDi, a robot that distracts kids from uncomfortable medical examinations and procedures, and even aids their recovery. READ MORE…
"As for the text books, you really do need your MGMT 501 books (half of the first book is due on the first day of class, or at least it was for us). You could probably get by with sharing the ACCT 501 book with a team member (you will be with them a lot). And, at least for us, it was perfectly fine to purchase an older edition of the Economics text (but I would check with your professor).
As for the case study, READ IT and READ IT well! Be ready to discuss; your future professors will be there and they are looking to see who will contribute. I would recommend discussing the case with your team before the full class discussion."

New - might not new- trends of marketing based on location.
“Groupons and other daily deals flood email inboxes, but instead of sending a deluge of unwanted offers, companies are now using location data to tailor coupons, deals and information to cell phone users. Using cell phone towers from the four major carriers, AT&T (T), Verizon (VZ), Sprint (S) and T-Mobile (TMUS), companies can send offers and information via text message to users who call ** and a specific brand name or code and then listen to a recorded message, according to Joe Gillespie, CEO of Zoove, a company that sells the service. With each call, user information, location data, a user’s cell phone carrier and the type of phone the user is calling from is recorded, Gillespie said.”

"Everyone” isn’t an audience. “Everyone” is a byproduct of an incredibly successful thing that was made for a far more specific bunch of people. Don’t ever make something for “Everyone” make it for someone. And make that person love it."
Dan Sinker. Knight Mozilla OpenNews Project. “Oh my god, don’t make things for “Everyone.”
Great words- we sometimes forget of targeting.
When you begin with “Everyone” you’re just stuck: How do you make any honest decisions? How do you solve any real problems? You don’t. You start to invent people and you start to invent their problems and it’s amazing because those people and those problems line up almost exactly with what you’re building and how you’re thinking about it—imagine that. Lying to yourself is amazing for productivity.
Real audience is hard. Solving real problems is f****** bananas. But it’s the only way you make something that lasts, because you made something that someone actually cared about.
