Categorization of Variables of the Organizational Culture at Netflix

Overview: For this assignment, you will apply what you know about Watzlawicks iceberg model of communication to analyze the organizational culture at Netflix. To do this, you will write a one-page paper, in which you identify examples of each of the four variables of the organizational culture at Netflix, which are defined in the prompt below. You will find these examples in the following readings and slide deck about Netflix:
Library Article: How Netflix Reinvented HR
Article: The Woman Behind the Netflix Culture Doc
Presentation: Netflix Culture: Freedom & Responsibility
This task provides you with key insights that will assist you in completing Section II: Cultural Analysis Overview of Milestone One. Prompt: Your submission must include these critical elements:
1. Examples from the readings and slide deck of the four variables of the organizational culture at Netflix. The four variables are: observable artifacts, espoused values, enacted values, and basic assumptions, as defined by Kreitner & Kinicki (2013) in their book, Organizational Behavior:
Observable Artifacts. These are observable components of a companys organizational culture, i.e., acronyms, manner of dress, awards, myths, stories about the organization, published lists of values, values reinforced via observable rituals and ceremonies, decorations, company brand features, etc.
Espoused Values. These are the explicitly stated values and norms that are preferred by the organization.
Enacted Values. These are the values and norms that are exhibited by the employees, which may be the same or differ from the stated espoused
values.
Basic Assumptions. These are the organizational values that have become so taken for granted over time that they have become assumptions
that guide organizational behavior.
2. Sources of the examples of each of the four variables from the readings and slide deck, including page/slide numbers. (For easy reference, download the PDF version of the readings, which are paginated.)
Guidelines for Submission: Your chart must be submitted as a one-page Microsoft Word document with 12-point Times New Roman font and one-inch margins. It will be evaluated using the rubric.

database coding

Assignment Background
In this assignment, you will develop a web application that will allow players to receive
cards from a collectible card game and trade those cards amongst their friends. The
card data used for this assignment is taken from the game Hearthstone. This is the
same data used in tutorial #8 a description of the structure of the data is provided at
the end of this document. A database-initializer.js file has been provided that will
create an empty ‘a5’ database in MongoDB and add each card to a ‘cards’ collection.
Note that the initializer will also delete any information in the ‘a5’ database. Each
user that registers for your web application will maintain their own set of cards and their
own set of friends. Friends within the application will be able to view each other’s cards
and propose/accept trades with each other. All data your server uses for this
assignment (cards, user profiles, session data, etc.) must be persistent. Your server
should be able to be restarted at any point and all the data should still be present.

HR Managment

Five years ago you joined a global mid-size unionized manufacturing firm as an HR manager. The role was one of managing a traditional HR department; in other words, the HR department was seen as primarily a staffing and administrative function.

At the time you were hired, your Board of Directors asked you to inform them as to what strategic human resource management is all about and how you saw your HR department (and its functions and subsequent activities) transforming to such a new role as a strategic partner.  Your company decided to transform the HR role from a traditionalist function to that of a strategic partner in the organization.

It has been five years since you began that transformation and the HR department is now seen as a strategic business partner to the organization. The Board of Directors, at an upcoming meeting, has asked you to describe how you have adapted to this role of strategic HR manager and what are the business implications?  You have 5 minutes to present your information so you decide to focus on your top priorities and their success. Include in your response to the discussion:

What two HR functions did you address and why? For example, HR function might include reduced voluntary turnover of key talent, such as expatriates, by the development of training for expatriates and their families, etc.
How did you measure the success of your work? What documentation would you provide to them to demonstrate your success (Hint: what specific metrics would you use to demonstrate your success)? in the case of an expat, consider the cost of training and the cost to replace an expat.
