Step 1 Read the scenario.Simuflite, a Texas aviation training company, expected to beat the competition with FasTrak-its computer-based training (CBT) curriculum for corporate pilots. Instead, the new venture sent Simuflite into a nose dive. An analysis revealed that in traditional ground-school training, pilots asked questions and learned from war stories told by classmates and instructors. However, with FasTrak, pilots sat in front of a computer for hours, trying to absorb information. Their only interaction was to tap the computer screen to provide answers to questions, and that novey wore off quickly. Pilots soon got bored with the CBT ground school, and as a resu, it was deemed ineffective.

Step 2 Answer the questions.Post responses to the following questions:

  • What does Simuflite’s experience suggest about the limitations of interactive media and CBT?
  • In which situations is CBT most likely to be beneficial to the trainees?

Step 1 Read the scenario.According to a 2003 survey in the United Kingdom, many recent college graduates, who had not yet found their first jobs, were already planning career breaks and were maintaining their hobbies and other interests. As one report put it, the next generation of workers is determined not to wind up on the hamster wheel of long hours with no play. Part of the problem seems to be that many already see their friends putting in more than 48 hours a week at work. Career experts reviewing the resus concluded that many of these recent college graduates are not looking for high-pay, high-profile jobs anymore. Instead, they seem to prefer to compartmentalize their lives and decrease the number of hours they spend at work so that they can pursue their hobbies and interests.

Step 2 Answer the following questions.Based on the scenario above, do you think these findings in the United Kingdom are also applicable in the United States? If so, what career advice would you give to these recent college graduates if you were mentoring them? Explain three key pieces of advice.

Step 1 Read the scenario.In 2002, Ford made public some of the details related to the firing of the former CEO Jacques A. Nasser, which followed a $5.4 billion loss during his last year in the job (Mullaney Darnell, 2002). In addition to an annual pension for life of nearly $1 million, the 53-year old ex-CEO received performance bonuses through 2003. He also received full payment on stock granted to him in 2001. It isn’t known how many shares he received, but his 2000 award was worth $5.8 million in January 2002 (Business Week, January 14, 2002).
