Does Process, Form, and Strategy make a business successful? ADL enjoyed a pre-emptive market share originating from the late 1800's, and became the leader of a growing management consulting practice during 60's and 70's. By the end of the 70's and early 80's they lost their dominant position as the market grew, and they continued to slide as the success of new companies tooled with contemporary technologies and skills, identifiable products, and a singular image gained market strength. ADL's pride was in the freshness of approach to each case, the "Eureka" kind of solutions, and no repetitive job undertaking. Work at ADL was problem oriented, technically based and highly customized. However ...

Sir Arthur Conan Doyles Influence On Twentieth Century Detective Literature - 1,506 words
There are many different books, in many different genres. There are horror novels, love stories, suspenseful books, and detective stories. The detective story's evolution has been a long and eventful process. The man responsible for the biggest leap in the detective story was Arthur Conan Doyle. He gave the world Sherlock Holmes, who could be considered the greatest investigator in detective story history. Holmes was unique in detective story history. "... The reader's interest is captivated not only by the detective's "unique methods," but to perhaps to even a greater degree by "the singular personality of this remarkable man" (Sayers 10).

Analysis The Star Arthur C Clark - 755 words
This science fiction story called "The Star" has many religious and spiritual overtones which makes the theme of the story 'There always has to be one to save all" more obvious. From the first to the last sentence the theme was built throughout to be a parallel experience of what has happened to the people before the great flood. Like many great science fiction stories this one shares a great message of hope in the unknown and to be glad that we have been so lucky to survive whatever we were supposed to have survived. This story was written in the late 1970's because of the reference to the Mark VI computer. In the first paragraph there is brief indication of religious symbols such as three ...

The uglier the truth the truer the friend is a statement that has been echoed throughout the history of time. In "Camelot", King Arthur experienced this quotation first hand. Even though "Camelot" is a fictional movie, the same situation that befell King Arthur really occurs Just by looking at Pellinore, you would not think that he was a trustworthy man. Dirty, hair uncombed, dingy clothes are all words that could be used to describe Pellinore's appearance. But as the old saying goes "Don't judge a book by its cover" and you should not judge Pellinore by his looks. King Arthur had so many "Yes men" in his court, that he could not depend on them to tell him the truth because they were to worr ...

King Arthur - 1,110 words
From the very beginning of our literary heritage there have been legends of many heroes, kings and Gods.

... Cambrensis' De Principis Instructione in which we are told that Arthur's grave has indeed been found in Glastonbury, also known as the Isle of Avalon. The Gesta Regum Anglorum (Deeds of the English Kings). contains the hint that Arthur is not dead but may return: "But the tomb of Arthur is nowhere seen, whence ancient dirges still fable his coming". In 1125, a tomb had yet to be found. The bridge between the fairly simple early material and the more complex later material is Geoffrey of Monmouth's Historia Regum Brittaniae (History of the Kings of Britain) written c. 1136. In this one work is the basis for almost all of the Arthurian legends that we know today. In it also is the basis fo ...

Ric Arthur Blair - 2,056 words
An analysis of Eric Arthur Blairs writing George Orwell is one of the most famous authors of dystopian fiction. He skillfully incorporates many literary devices, symbols and themes in a unique blend that is all his own; this demonstrates his style. As a satirist he attempts to convey his feelings about many issues using his unique style. One can find a reoccurring style in two of his most famous books: Animal Farm and 1984. Orwells style is one that is used frequently throughout his literature. Authors often utilize these types of literary devices in their writing to ridicule or satire the society around them, or to provide a warning against what could potentially happen to the world.

By deliberately weakening peoples memories and flooding their minds with propaganda, the Party is able to replace individuals memories with its own version of the truth. It becomes nearly impossible for people to question the Partys power in the present when they accept what the Party tells them about the pastthat the Party arose to protect them from bloated, oppressive capitalists, and that the world was far uglier and harsher before the Party came to power. Winston vaguely understands this principle. He struggles to recover his own memories and formulate a larger picture of what has happened to the world. Winston buys a paperweig ...

Arthur Miller And His Distorted Historical Accuracies - 1,916 words
In 1953, Arthur Miller wrote his famous play The Crucible, in response to a fear of Communism that had developed in the United States during that decade. The Red Scare, as it was later called by historians was led by Senator Joseph McCarthy, whose paranoia of a communist takeover spread through the nation like a wildfire. Men and women alike fell victim to McCarthys pointed finger and as a result of this hysteria, were mostly deported from the country, their careers and lives ruined. Some argue today that McCarthys plan had been to use the fear of the American people to throw his enemies out of office and gain power himself. Whatever McCarthys motives may have been, Arthur Miller realized th ...

Le Morte D'arthur: The Seven Deadly Sins - 1,405 words
The seven deadly sins are spoken of often and frequently in every day life for that is what they are affected with. All of these sins can intertwine to form a domino effect of actions and reactions that link to all of the sins. Once one is committed, it becomes easier to fall into the others for they are all interlinked. This is prevalent in Malory's Le Morte D'Arthur as proven by the acts committed by the various characters throughout the book. When looked at as separate words, the definition of the phrase, the "seven deadly sins", becomes clearer. Starting with "seven", being the chosen number of dealings, following with "deadly", meaning fatal, proceeding to die, or to become deceased and ...

The Effects Of Sin Upon Arthur Dimmesdale - 812 words
Hawthorn shows sins of several different kinds in numerous people, as well as the consequences and remedies of their sins. Three main characters; Hester Prynne, Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale, and Roger Chillingworth bare the most of these sins. Arthur Dimmesdale, however, bares the most brutal effects of such sin. This is due to several reasons. The most observable reason for his eventual breakdown is the fact that he keeps his sin a secret. Arthur Dimmesdales sin was the same as Hesters, except he never confessed. As God's servant, it is his nature to tell the truth, so the years of pretending and hypocrisy were especially hard on him. (Bloom 28) Dimmesdale also believes that his sin has taken ...

Le Morte D'arthur - The Chivalric Code - 807 words
An act of chivalry is described as the qualifications or character of the ideal knight. Knights were expected to uphold this code of conduct. In the English literature Le Morte d'Arthur, French for 'The Death of Arthur', by Sir Thomas Malory, the characters display acts of chivalry from beginning to end. Though the code of chivalry contains many qualities or acts, nevertheless bravery, loyalty, and courtly love are demonstrated more throughout this literature. Bravery is the mental or moral strength to venture and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty. Fear is what one feels when fighting, knowing that he or she could die. For example, when Sir Mordred and King Arthur were to fight, Arthur w ...

How Arthur Miller Controls The Rise And Fall In Act 1 Of The Crucible - 2,323 words
The Crucible is a play written by Arthur Miller, which is based on the true story of the Salem witch trails. Miller wanted theatre to heighten the awareness of what living in our time involves. Therefore, his play has many links with the modern world, McCarthyism for instance. Breaking it down into many smaller scenes, I will analyse Act 1 of The Crucible. I am doing this to explore the dramatic effect of character and action. The Crucible is a powerful drama and is strongly built to bring out the full dramatic effect of varying shifts of tension and conflict. This is a play that explores the way in which a community can be devastated by a witch-hunt that can place individuals at conflict wi ...
