I. Introduction
CARE fights poverty and injustice in 87 countries around the world to help the world’s poorest people find routes out of poverty. CARE also delivers emergency aid to survivors of war and natural disasters, and helps people rebuild their lives in the aftermath.
CARE’s mission is to create lasting change in poor communities and put money where it is needed most. II. Name and Effectiveness of Websites
Care International (UK) Website is www.careinternational.org.uk
CARE International ranks seventh among 100 non-government organisations, according to the Top 100 NGOs list of the Global Journal. CARE was also globally ranked second among NGOs involved in humanitarian relief work. A) Accountability is about ensuring and improving the quality of their work, by being honest about what has worked and what has not. It also means being open about what was promised and what was achieved. It is both a way to improve the quality of their work and an explicit recognition the stakeholders, and especially those impacted by their work such as donors, have a right to hold CARE to account for their work.

The United Nations Development Program

...The United Nations Development Program (UNDP) was created in 1965. It was originally intended to undergo investigations into private investment in developing countries, examine those countries natural resources, and to train the locals in development activities. As time went on they were given more responsibility and now hold jurisdiction over disaster prevention, response, mitigation, preparedness, reconstruction, and recovery. As part of a self-reorganization in 1995 a new Emergency Response Division was created. A response team is now routinely deployed to help coordinate relief and recovery efforts of other UN agencies and NGO’s with the efforts of disaster-stricken national governments. (Sylves, 2008) The UNDP now operates and holds offices in 177 different countries and works with the local governments to help improve development and meet new challenges. The UNDP was not originally considered an agency on the forefront of international disaster management and humanitarian emergencies because, while it addressed national capacities, it did not focus specifically on the emergency response systems (previously considered to be the focal point of disaster management). (Bullock, Coppola, & Haddow, 2011) The UNDP seemingly gained more credibility and recognition along with or at the same time and rate as critical infrastructure protection (CIP), mitigation, and preparedness. The UNDP has seen a little criticism from staff members and the Bush Administration for......

This allows the leader approximately one-third of the table space while the groups sits around the other two-thirds of the table. The team always waits for the leader to express before anyone speaks. The leader often begins with ten minutes review of the progress. The team is assigned the task of collecting data from the......

...Managing New Product Development Teams Topic: Managing New Product Development Teams  CASE STUDY W/QUESTIONS (MUST ANSWER ALL DISCUSSION QUESTIONS) Skullcandy: Developing Extreme Headphones1 In 2001, Rick Alden was riding up a ski lift and listening to music on an MP3 player when he heard his phone ringing, muffled in the pocket of his ski jacket. He fumbled around with his gloved hands, trying to get to the phone before it stopped ringing, and at that moment he thought “ why not have headphones that connect to both a cell phone and an MP3 player?” 2 In January of 2002 he had his first prototype built by a Chinese manufacturer, and by January of 2003 he launched his company, Skullcandy. 3 Building an Action Sports Brand Alden had an extensive background in the snowboarding industry, having previ-ously founded National Snowboard Incorporated ( one of the first companies to promote snowboarding) and having developed and marketed his own line of snowboard bindings. His father, Paul Alden, had played many roles in the indus-try, including serving as the president of the North American Snowboard Association, which helped open up ski resorts to snowboarders. His brother, David Alden, had been a professional snowboarder for Burton, and a sales repre-sentative for several snowboard lines. Thus when Alden began creating an image and brand for the headphones, it only made sense to create a brand that would have the kind of dynamic edginess that would attract snowboarders and......

Managing Work Priorities & Personal Development

...Managing Work Priorities & Professional Development | In today's business world, you can find any number of articles in the media about how important it is for you to manage your work priorities and develop your professional capabilities. Competition among people for professional advancement in both position and salary is high and being able to successfully manage your priorities and personal development is a cornerstone in achieving this. Without professional development you will find yourself left behind in the promotion race and missing out on all the 'plum' and challenging roles that you seek. This applies to all types of employees in every facet of business or industry but it is particularly relevant to office-based workers and managers who don't have the strict structures controlling their every task like a process or factory worker does. There are many different things to consider when thinking about managing priorities and professional development but to begin with you need to formulate a plan. The plan should include your performance as a role model, developing your traits as an effective leader, ensuring your work goals and plan reflect the organisation's, meeting your job responsibilities, measuring and maintaining your personal performance, prioritising your work, use of technology, maintaining a work/life balance, meeting competency standards, determining your developmental needs, taking advantage of learning opportunities that best match your......

Managing Development Needs

...Organsation development is any process or activity, based on the behavioural sciences, that, either initially or over the long term, has the potential to develop in an organisational setting enhanced knowledge, expertise, productivity, satisfaction, income, interpersonal relationships, and other desired outcomes, whether for personal or group/team gain, or for the benefit of an organization, community, nation, region, or, ultimately, the whole of humanity (Gary McLean, 2010) When working towards this goal, it is important to firstly identify what the training needs of the organisation are. These methods of identification can include; • Customer Feedback - by creating a clear avenue in which customers, the source of many organisations profitability, can extend their views on current processes and interactions, organisations can determine in which areas they could make improvement to suit their customers needs. As the expectations of customers will always be a moving feast, this method of identification is particularly crucial to stay ahead of the competition. This method is also useful when evaluating what impact any organisational development initiatives has had within certain areas. • Performance Appraisals - by reviewing the performance of an organisations employees, you can establish what personal development needs are required to improve the employees performance thereby improving the performance of the organisation as a whole. Through collating these personal......

Managing Personal Development

...1. Understand How to Identify and Prioritise Work-related Development Requirements Personal development is a continuous process to help develop a person’s potential to the fullest and also learning new skills in order to practice new things. Personal development is important. Many of us work in ever changing and competitive environments. If we don't keep up with training, we can miss key opportunities, it also makes us more marketable and efficient in delivering a quality service. It can also give us a focus so that there is motivation to carry on. Although early life development and early formative experiences within the family, at school etc, personal development should not stop later in life. (www.skillsyouneed.com 1st May 2016) Most of us are motivated by needs. Maslow 1970 suggests that all individuals have an in-built need for personal development which occurs through the process called self actualisation. Maslow developed the Hierarchy of needs in which he provided a understanding of human motivation and needs which needed to be met in the given order in order to progress. 1. Psychological Needs The need for oxygen, food, sex etc. these are the basic needs required for survival. 2. Safety Needs. These are the needs for security and safety ranging from security of home or income and physical security. 3. Social Needs. The need for love and affection and feeling if they belong and not feel loneliness. 4. Esteem Needs. If......

Bbyo Inc. Development Program Assessment

...SPEA – V558 Fund Development for Nonprofits Jamie Levy Assessment of BBYO Development Program The above graph (not to scale) is a reflection of the development program at BBYO, Inc. BBYO is an independent, pluralistic, Jewish youth movement that recently (2002) became independent of its parent body, B’nai B’rith (a Jewish fraternal and social service agency). Since this time, BBYO has worked very hard to court a number of major donors. However, it seems that the donative spectrum is too heavily skewed towards a number of major donors; while small to medium size gifts are a relatively small part of the revenue stream. I believe this is a most unwelcome development. The reasons why I believe this phenomenon to be problematic are two-fold. Any organization that becomes dependent on a small subset of donors for over 91% of its revenue runs the risk of losing operational and mission-related control of the organization. Additionally, it seems that a great deal of donative income is “left on the table.” The organization has apparently expended far too little effort searching for small to midsize donations. I believe that a great deal of untapped development potential is waiting to be realized. BBYO is an 85 year old Jewish Youth Movement that has an alumni base of over 35,000 individuals. When one considers that this number does not reflect the parents of alumni, one can only conclude that this very large donor base has mainly gone untapped. It would be interesting to......

Supervalue, Inc Professional Development Program

...SUPERVALU, Inc. Analysis of Professional Development Program There were only a few strengths in SUPERVALU’s Professional Development Program (PDP). The mere fact that they recognized they needed a program to develop leaders was one positive. As Paul Cimmerer indicated in the article, “SUPERVALU was not doing a good enough job of bringing new people on board or grooming them for growth and effectiveness.” That was the genesis behind the PDP program - to attract and prepare high-potential college graduates for successful management careers. In addition, it did provide rotational experience for the new hires, as they would spend one year in their work area of choice and then next year would spend six months in the two other areas before returning to their home bases for career assignments. This provided the employee with the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of the SUPERVALU, Inc. business. Both of these items indicated that SUPERVALU, Inc. was at least thinking about what it took to train a leader to do the basics of leadership. The last positive outcome of the PDP effort was that SUPERVALU recognized it as just the beginning of training and development programs within the company. This indicated they recognized they needed to do more in the area of training their leadership. The fundamental problem with their PDP effort was it was focused at creating leaders, not a leadership brand. In fact, the PDP was not even covering all the basics of developing a leader. ...

Program Framework Within the Nonprofit Organization:

...Running Head: PROGRAM FRAMEWORK WITHIN THE NONPROFIT Program Framework within the Nonprofit Organization: How to Create a Successful Nonprofit Khalid Abuhassan, Helen Alexander, Tanaya Horne, Andrew Lang, Lisa Long, Joshua Wheeler Liberty University Abstract The program framework of a nonprofit organization is the planning foundation that it is built on. The authors of this paper recognize the importance of creating a strong blueprint from which a nonprofit is then realized. An explanation factoring each step of the strategic planning process from a start-up perspective is followed by the authors applying the newly acquired knowledge to broadly create a “mock” foundation. Program Framework within the Nonprofit Organization: How to Create a Successful Nonprofit Harvard Kennedy School’s curriculum for one of their nonprofit classes states that “Strategic Frameworks for Nonprofit Organizations is designed to help nonprofit and NGO leaders use strategic management frameworks to improve their organizations.” (Letts, 2012) Smith, Bucklin & Associates, Inc. teaches: “Strategic planning is a management tool that can help focus – and periodically refocus – an organization’s vision and priorities. This planning process establishes choices about how best to accomplish the organization’s mission.” (Smith, 2000) Carl Richardson simplifies the urgency of strategic planning by asserting “An organization that is growing and hopes to sustain that growth needs a set of......
