Consider a business in your neighborhood that you frequent and that you believe is particularly innovative in
spite of the products or services themselves not being particularly high-tech. Using the definitions and notions
from the text, explain what it is about the business and its operation that you believe makes it innovative?
Some argue that becoming too large is the root of the end of innovation. Many point to companies such as
Microsoft, where the assertion is that the only real innovation that has happened in recent years has been
through acquisition. Attack or defend the notion that getting too large usually stifles or kills innovation. Explain
your answer using real businesses, and support your answer with recent articles, Web pages, or book
Carnegie Mellon University’s Software Engineering Institute studies more than just software engineering. Its
research into technology adoption and how to improve upon it is worthy of special note. The IDEAL model is an
example of work that has broad implications far beyond software and system engineering. Compare and
contrast the IDEAL model with the various models from the textbook. Focus on one aspect of the IDEAL model
that you believe is particularly important, and explain why businesses trying to implement change should not
ignore this aspect.
Dealing with resistance is an important part of any major change effort. It is common for one or more
employees with excellent work history and great reputations to be rather vocal in their resistance to a change.
Why might it be a mistake to ignore the resistance, or to sanction the resisters, in order to remove their
temperatures across the Gulf of Mexico. Ducks, geese, and other waterfowl rely on the Delta’s food-rich habitats, whether it be preparing for the 600-mile journey across the Gulf in the fall or recuperating after the flight back north in the spring. Therefore, the destruction of the Delta doesn’t only affect its yearlong residents; waterfowl hunters as far north as Canada feel the effects of the Paradise’s degradation. The entire North American duck hunting community relies on the Mississippi River Delta, as it vanishes before our blind eyes. The spotted sea trout, commonly known as the speckled trout, is arguably the most widely sought after aquatic species that inhabits the Delta. Even though the speckled trout is a migrating species, they crowd the warm, shallow channels during the spring and summer, feeding on anything from shrimp to mullet. The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) defines the maximum length of speckled trout at 25 inches, but I’ve witnessed three over 30 inches. All three were released, purely out of respect. Due to decades of mismanagement, along with damaging hurricanes and the 2010 Gulf oil spill, coastal Louisiana is disappearing at a rate of one football field every 100 minutes. In the past 100 years, Louisiana has lost over 1,900 square miles, roughly the size of Delaware. Several major factors contribute to this land loss. First off, the delta’s wetlands are, and always will be, sustained by the rich sediments delivered by the Mississippi River, but huge levees built to protect communities and other resources have in turn cut the tie between the delta and its lifeline, completely wasting the sediments that keep the marshes replenished. Even without these levees, the amount of sediment left in the lower Mississippi most likely wouldn’t sustain the regrowth of the marshland already lost. Given the number of dams and locks built upriver on the Missouri, Mississippi, and Ohio Rivers, the amount of sediment in the l>GET ANSWER
