This paper intends to show that the conflict is in fact apparent, the values being contrary and not contradictory. There is a way of integrating them. Efficiency is highly prized in a culture turned toward productivity. It is therefore cultivated in contemporary business administration theories. It also tends to be prized above all other values in modern society, as society is more and more oriented toward technological advancement.
This dependency on technology is the result of a constant persuasion from the mass media; therefore it has stopped the evolution of human kind and generated the human crisis of the society. Humans have conquered the external world of material things with a tragic risk of losing balance of their internal world. In this case, mass media, the principal responsible of the vanishment of culture, has been used to promote behaviors of consumerism, individualism and stereotyping minorities in the country. As a result, humans has obtained a new identity of isolation and dehumanization The lethargy in which people live is mainly due to the passivity of the crowded environment of the world. Society tend to conform by focusing their lives on material things and elements that make lose sensitivity to the issues that surround today's society.
Dreams of Fame in Djerassi’s Cantor's Dilemma Opportunistic scientists, the most hypocritical deviants of the modern age, revolve around the scientific method, or at least they used to. The scientific method once involved formulating a hypothesis from a problem posed, experimenting, and forming a conclusion that best explained the data collected. Yet today, those who are willing to critique the work of their peers are themselves performing the scientific method out of sequence. I propose that scientists, or the "treasure hunters" of that field, are no longer interested in permanent solutions, achieved through proper use of the scientific method, and rather are more interested in solutions that guarantee fame and fortune. Fame and fortune as a motive for scientific discovery is a popular theme in fictional writing, especially in Cantor's Dilemma by Carl Djerassi.
Their job is to serve the customer well; how they do it is up to them” (Pink 102). This shows that some companies would rather give their employees freedom than a totalitarian environment. When employees feel free they have a positive attitude, which will reflect on their work ethic. In fact Pink also mentions that "... Zappos consistently ranks as one of the best companies for customer service in the United States...” (103). This is in indicator that autonomy worked for Zappos and made them surpass their rival companies that did not use autonomy in their field of work.
Gandhi was not anti-technology. He only disapproves of technology that “replaces the unique qualities of men.” In Hind Swaraj, Gandhi discusses how technology would lead to people’s loss of their need for their hands and feet: “They will press a button, and they will have their clothing by their side...Everything will be done by machinery” (Ch.6). What he was against was ‘technicism,’ the idea that all technological crises are solved by technology itself (136). It allows no escape in thought beyond that of technology. The ideologue Peter Medawar explains this modern phenomenon as such: ‘The deterioration of the environment produced by technology is a technological problem of which technology has found, is finding and will continue to find solutions” (136).
Innovation time is an advantageous policy for two reasons: it can facilitate the creation of new revenue streams, and it exemplifies the positive aspects of academically accepted motivation theories, in particular the job characteristics model (JCM). Google and 3M, two highly successful companies, attribute much of their success to their use of this motivation technique. Allowing employees time to innovate and work on projects not directly assigned to them by management is an effective way to motivate staff in today’s competitive economy. Before examining the advantages of innovation time, it is important to understand the fundamentals of the theory. At its core, the idea of giving employees time to self-direct themselves in the pursuit of creative projects involves supporting the innovator’s personal interests and entrepreneurial spirit (Dackert, Looke, & Martensson).
Conclusion In summation I believe that my thesis stands, the benefits clearly out-weigh the disadvantages as long as the measurement process is appropriately scaled. Small companies need not worry about absorbing as much information as possible and instead should focus on whether or not their employees are on task. However large companies not only need to focus employees but should also gather information that may be useful in increasing productivity and increasing stakeholder confidence.
The individual must play the role of constant motivator and inspire employees to improve their work performance, whilst ensuring a comfortable environment for the employees to work in. According to Schumpeter (1982), an entrepreneur is more of a ‘heroic’ than an ‘economic’ figure; his motivation should not solely be monetary, rather stemming more from inspiration and ambition. One of the most integral qualities of an entrepreneur as well as that of a successful business is the degree of innovation it possesses. Innovation refers to the creation of new ideas, improvement of existing production processes, and effective problem solving. Innovation allows for increased efficiency in a business, which in turn increases its supply potential and productive capacity.
Consumers are beginning to dislike advertising and marketing efforts because they feel it’s everywhere they go and tracking everything they do. As they say, too much of a good thing could kill. Advertisers need to be aware of the consumer’s feelings because in the end it’s the consumers they need to respect and impress. Works Cited Ambient Advertising. (2002).
Therefore, Technology is bad for alternatives way for people because it replace humanity. As you can see, Technology plays a big role in our lives in Montag's society and our society too. You see technology is an antagonist to nature because it gives us too much tittivation. It manipulates our mind and it changes who we are. Therefore, Ray Bradbury overall message/opinion of Fahrenheit 451 is how technology is bad for alternative ways for people.
