  • Case Study Of Circuit City: The Failure Of Wards

    Circuit City The Failure of Circuit City Jake Johnston Mars Hill University Abstract Circuit City started out in 1949 as “Wards Company.” Within ten years, the store brought in $1 million per year. In 1965 Wards expanded through the acquisition of other television and home appliance stores; their move of horizontal expansion helped with their success. In 1984, Wards became Circuit City Stores, Inc. and became publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange. From the year of 1949 until 2009…

  • What Could Have Been Done Circuit City: A Case Study

    According to Anderson (2015), in a book researched by Senge (1990) “culture is not just composed of the beliefs that people have about the organization, but ways that they behave.” (p. 36) The Company would thrive from the learning culture of each worker being more inclusive with each other departments. There needs to be more learned behavior as a team and the employees need to think together as one. One example I found was case study by Todd Campbell titled on Management and Employee Failure…

  • The Pros And Cons Of A Computer

    The answer to that goes all the way to my childhood. As a child, I took apart anything electronic, the only problem was I had no tools and my dad would never let me use his. However that never stopped me, I would pry open the casings at any cost. I often would injure myself, nothing major, just a few cuts and scrapes. Once I forced the casing off, it was like opening a treasure chest, the circuitry was like gold to me. To me, it looked like a tiny city, the circuits where the roads and the…

  • OHSA Labeling

    for them. In every workplace there is at least 1 type of electrical panel. Most of people think of a circuit breaker when they hear electrical panel, however there are many different purposes for an electric panel. I will briefly discuss what an electrical panel is and the labeling and safety requirements required by OHSA regarding them. What is an electrical panel? An electrical panel, also known as a distribution board, is the main hub of an electrical supply system. You can think of it like a…

  • Thermaltake Overseeer Case Study

    To start off building my computer, the case I decided on was the Thermaltake Overseer RX-I VN700M1W2N. I picked this case because I like being able to see the inside of the computer case, while offering a neat light display when powered on and a stylish look overall. The motherboard I have chosen is the ASUS Z170-A LGA 1151 Intel Z170 ATX motherboard. I have chosen this motherboard because I wanted something that is up-to-date, can run the everyday things I do, comes with USB 3.1, and is also…

  • The Third Generation Of Technology: The History Of Computing Technology

    The history of computing technology can be organized into four distinct generations, each defined by a distinct transformation in technological innovation. The first generation stretched from 1947-1957, and is identifiable by its use of vacuum tube technology. This generation transitioned into the second generation during the late 1950’s with the use of transistors. Subsequently in the 1960’s the third generation began, classified by its use of integrated circuits. The fourth generation of…

  • Why Is Technology Important To Our Future?

    1958, Jack Kilby and Robert Noyce revealed the integrated circuit which is known to us as the computer chip. As mentioned earlier, this invention would not have been accomplished without the invention of the microchip transistor. As years go on, Douglas Engelbart shows a prototype of a modern computer with a mouse and a graphical user interface. This imprinted the evolution of the computer from a specialized machine to technology that is accessible abroad. In 1969, a group of developers at Bell…
