Module 1      2 Abstract Response to the first question explains the discrepancies that on one hand the typical  U.S. employee works in an establishment with about 600 full-time and 72 part-time  workers while on the other, It is also true that the median numbers for full- and part-time  workers   are   50   and   2.   Response   to   the   second   question   discusses   that   Small  businesses are a key cog in the American economy and some of the problems faced by  them are staffing, management, leadership, training, capital etc. Response to third  question explains with examples the role that companies play in the development of the  cities in which they are based. Response to the fourth question discusses how internal  organizational changes affect the social structure of the organization and the steps that  managers can take to minimize the negative aspects of change in order to preserve the  social structure. Response to fifth question points differences between horizontal and  vertical differentiations. .

Module 1      4 Response: “There is an interesting statistical paradox that related to this variance. On  the one hand, data indicate that the “typical U.S. employee works in an establishment  with 599 full-time workers and 72 part- time workers” (Marsden, Cook and Knoke,  1996:49). Date from establishments indicate, though, that the “median numbers are 50  full-time and 2 part-time employees” (Dun and Bradstreet, 1995:26). The reason for this  apparent discrepancy is that, although there are many very small organizations, most of  the people in the United States are employed by a relatively small number of very large  organizations (Marsden, cook and Knoke, 1996:50). As the preceding statistics suggest,  counting the number of members in an organization is always challenging as whether  temporary   workers   should   be   counted   with   the   permanent   workers   or   should   be  excluded, the number of part-time employees should be counted in the same way as the  full time employees or some other way. The main point here is that the size is an  important aspect of the diversity in the phenomenon of organization”. ( Tolbert Pamela,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
