  1. The role of expert and lay knowledge in understanding and managing risk.

    Beck?s account of Risk society (1989) claims that we are changing from an industrial society to one where, 1. There are significant effects from modernisation. 2. Invisible risks that cannot be determined by an individual?s own means. 3. Dependency on expert knowledge. 4. ?The extent of people?s material exposure to danger/harm is essentially reliant on knowledge created by experts? (Carter and Jordan, 2009, p.80). 5. Rapid growth in public awareness of risk. 6. The amount of risks within society focuses at the distribution of harm. While examining the two types of knowledge used in determining how risks are made and understood this report will provide evidence for the importance of expert knowledge as Beck saw it and for lay knowledge and public opinion which is not so straightforwardly determined.

  2. Increasing Employee Retention with Work-Life Balance Case study.

    As our company grows, if we do not put these policies in place, our employees will begin to experience large amounts of stress, which would not only increase the risk of the employees leaving the company, but would also cause low productivity, and increased time off (Hitt, Miller, & Colella, 2009). Not having family-friendly policies in place can also make our employees resentful and cause them to think that we do not care about their personal lives. This is a huge risk for our company; our labor is the most important asset we have, and if we do not put policies into place that illustrate our commitment to them, we are at risk of losing that value.

  3. Leadership Case Study - The candidate chosen for this assignment is a Junior Lecturer with an experience of approximately four years

    Teachers are a relevant example of leadership in modern life. They are paradoxically mischaracterized as incompetent leaders, however, in reality they should be considered as in-dispensable assets in the truest meaning of the word. They ultimately control the learning and intellectual development of young people in their charge and play a vital role in cultivating the new generation. For these reasons, the following description of leadership styles is based on the experience of a junior lecturer. BACKGROUND OF INTERVIEWEE: Tenure 2008-Present Current Position Junior Lecturer, Oral Pathology Department. Baqai Dental College, Karachi.
