properties within the compound. (Figure 2 and 3) Another project of Greyhound Industrial Sales was the Victoria de Morato Condominium located in Sct. Borromeo corner Tomas Morato. Developed by the New San Jose Builders Inc., it supplied the GRIPBOND Skim Coat as well which was used in finishing the concrete surfaces whether for indoor or outdoor purposes. (Figure 4) Its next project was Alveo Financial Tower which is located at the heart of an established business district alongside world-class business headquarters and offices, commercial establishments and other lifestyle and recreational areas. With a total of 363 office spaces and rising up to 49 stories high, Greyhound Industrial Sales was privileged enough to have provided tile application for each and every unit in the building using its premier product, GRIPBOND Tile Adhesive. (Figure 5 and 6) Its other project would be the UP Architectural Building located in the UP Diliman Cams at Quezon City. Constructed by Bright Hope Construction, Greyhound Industrial sales provided for waterproofing works to serve as protection from leaks and water damage by using the GRIPBOND 560, the 2K Flexible Cementitious Waterproofing Membrane. (Figure 7 and 8) Contracted by Prudent Diamond Square Construction Co., the Rosario Sports Arena was developed by the Pasig City Government mainly to serve as a sports facility for softball tournaments. Greyhound Industrial Sales’ scope of work mainly revolved around the application of GRIPBOND Waterproofing products to serve as protection from leaks and water damage as well as epoxy used for the applied coatings and sealers. (Figure 9) Strategic Issues/Organizational Problems Experienced One of the biggest problems that the company Greyhound Industrial Sales experiences is that there is a lack of standardized systems and procedures. This causes the employees to be reliant on upper management to assign them tasks because they do not have a clear system in mind. This causes delays and inefficiency within the company, especially if the upper management is absent. Another one of the biggest problems the company is facing is that they do inventory on-demand and do lean manufacturing. This means that they order supplies and manufacture parts only when needed in a certain project or for a certain client. This is the company’s way of lessening cost and waste as well. However, this becomes a threat if there is a delay that is caused by the supplier or if the procedure is inefficient. Delays from the supplier or within the procedure can cause a huge delay, or even a halt, in the whole operations of the company because they do not have proper back-ups or reserves.

    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.
