The Trouble with Boys
“Educators are searching for new ways to help tackle what is being called the ‘problem of boys.’ Boys are biologically, psychologically, and developmentally different from girls. They have better hand-eye coordination, enabling them to excel in sports and video games, but they lag behind girls in academics, whether it’s learning to hold a pencil in preschool or enrolling in college. This shouldn’t surprise us, since the academic achievement of girls has been given most of the support and attention since the 1970’s.
Now that it’s clear that boys are falling further and further behind, it’s time to begin offering boys special advantages. We need to experiment with alternative approaches such as smaller classes, all-boy schools, financial bonuses for male teachers, and incentives to encourage boys to complete high school and go on to college.
If we don’t take these steps, we risk a world where women have all the advanced degrees, the best-paying jobs, and the leadership roles.”
The statement above is what the paper is based on.
Competitive Advantage, Strategic-Management, and Groupthink
Do some research and answer the following critical thinking questions from this week’s readings. In your analysis, cite a minimum of three (3) references from different sources (the textbook can be one source).
- 1) Apply the VRIO framework to assess whether your current employer or a previous one has a sustainable source of competitive advantage.
- 2) Describe the five steps of the strategic-management process. Which step of the strategic-management process do you believe is the most important? Defend your position.
- 3) Discuss why groupthink is dangerous and from your experiences, identify some best practices you witnessed or used to help employees or colleagues avoid falling victim to groupthink. In the workplace, how does groupthink affect how decisions are made and the outcomes from those decisions in the organization?
Your submission should be a minimum of two (2), double-spaced, full pages of analysis with proper reference citation per current APA guidelines.
