1.I guess the Rosa County case study project would have benefited greatly from a change control board. Maybe the scope of the project could be expanded to include proper training for the Oncall staff, as well as the new staff members hired. I think that representatives from the police department, Oncall’s manager (Alex Jensen) for the system upgrade project, and the operations manager should all be on the change control board. Each of these members could contribute a different perspective on whether the proposed changes positively impact the success of the project.
- I agree that persons that played leading roles in the already troubling project should be part of the change control board. The reason is they are already a reservoir of knowledge about the running of the project that any expect do not have (Theory vs practical). A change control board would have definitely made it easier to decide how and what type of changes are needed for the betterment of the project.
used and social problems were blamed on “evil” groups. The media reported violence committed by Hell’s Angels in America whose equivalents were the mods and the rockers in the UK (O’Malley, 1988). By using biased words such as evil and using biased sources in order to criminalise such groups, the public’s opinion of the rockers were now changed and they associated them with deviancy and criminal activities. CC has admitted that it’s hard to precisely define what is culture (O’Brien and Yar, 2008). In a postmodern world it puts a large emphasis on globalisation, fluidity, and transition. CC can be considered as one of the most extreme forms of ethnography, as it has the most complex relationship to it. Through ethnography academics can study and observe groups of people, which can vary in sizes, and in an era of globalization, it is important to observe how society is drifting. As we know, ethnographical studies were prioritised by the Chicago School of Criminology, whereby researchers discovered a way of studying society through direct observation, which is observing people in their natural setting, without disturbing them. It is interesting that Chicago in the 1940’s received many refugees from Europe during the 2nd World War, (Kivisto, Persons and Pinderhughes, 1988) and because of this Chicago has become ethnically diverse, and so displayed many of the characteristics of a fluid diverse world, as in globalisation (Marks and Grossman, 1991). Ethnography is the best way to observe a group of people and their behaviour, and has been used with animals as well, trying to observe their behaviour in their natural setting. In this project ethnography has not been used, since it would be dangerous to attend any events with a group such as Antifa who are known to have committed violent attacks. Ethnography is a good option to study groups of people, it is best to combine ethnography with CC, to understand the origin of the behaviour. Nonetheless, although circumstances prevent the use of ethnography on this occasion, the dissertation can assess the viability to the future cultural criminology studies in this area.>GET ANSWER
