Context: With 11:54 left in the first quarter, the Lions have a new set of downs with the ball on Philadelphia’s 29.

This is three plays later on the same drive as above, the Lions run a similar play to the left side, only the center, Swanson, will pull to add as a third lead blocker and right guard Larry Warford (#75) will issue a cut block on Tina veil headband Black Maison Michel EMjnnwuIC
(#91). A slight difference in personnel as the slot position is manned by Anquan Boldin (#80) instead of Andre Roberts. The Eagles defense shows seven in the box and are ready for what Detroit calls when Charles once again motions inside behind Boldin. Upon the snap, end Silk Square Scarf Blue Blossoms by VIDA VIDA 9VL0jW1
(#98) anticipates the crackback block from Charles and uses a spin a move to counter it and gets free. Meanwhile, Jordan Hicks reads the play and quickly gets past the pulling center able to contain Tate’s run along with Barwin. Tate is able to make Hicks miss and cuts back inside and is able to make a couple more defenders miss before being tackled for a one-yard loss. Would it have been easier for the playside guard to pass over the

to the center and instead target the linebacker?

Here’s another look at how Detroit can use Tate in the backfield, this time to draw the attention of the defense away from the primary target.

Context: With 53 seconds remaining in the first quarter, Detroit has a 1st and 6 on the Lions second possession, they enter the red zone with the same players as the play above. Stafford is in the shotgun with Tate behind him and Theo Reddick on the quarterback’s left side. Orson Charles doesn’t motion this time staying outside with Anquan Boldin to the left in an inverted slot formation.

At the snap, the offensive line take a pass set with Reddick coming forward looking to block. Tate releases to the left side on a swing route. Stafford pump fakes to Tate and swirls around to look for Reddick, who is sneaking his way to the right side of the field. It’s a setup. Both Nigel Bradham and Ron Brooks react and flow to Tate’s release out of the backfield, while Jordan Hicks keeps an eye on Stafford, unaware of Reddick’s movement to the opposite side of the field. The center and both guards, Warford and Graham Glasgow (#60) sell their pass blocking before setting course to the boundary side of the field acting as lead blockers for their running back. Reddick catches the ball with Swanson leading the way with green in front of them after a cut block by Warford on the pursuing Hicks. For extra measure, Swanson dives in front of safety Modal Scarf Next gen by VIDA VIDA S1GQN
(#23) to lead Reddick to the end zone. Touchdown Detroit.

Although we did not observe higher total KIN-19 protein levels in the whole animal with age, we found a 1.6-fold up-regulation of kin-19 promoter-directed expression in the pharynx, as measured by quantification of the transcriptional Pkin-19:: tagRFP fluorescent reporter ( Figure 4A ). To exclude the hypothesis that KIN-19 aggregation in the pharynx was caused solely by an increase in the level of KIN-19, we reduced KIN-19::tagRFP levels using RNAi ( Sunglasses On Sale Black 2017 one size Stella McCartney GsD3pmduQ
) and asked whether the protein would still aggregate with age. Adult-only kin-19 -RNAi treatment reduced the levels of KIN-19::tagRFP in 6-day-old adults to a level similar to that measured in 2-day-old controls. Under these conditions, we still observed significantly more KIN-19::tagRFP aggregation in older animals than in young animals ( Figure 4C and 4D ). We confirmed by FRAP that aggregates in 6-day-old kin-19 RNAi-treated animals were formed by immobile KIN-19::tagRFP ( Figure S4C ). These findings show that preventing protein levels from increasing does not abrogate KIN-19 aggregation.

Figure 4. Reducing KIN-19::tagRFP levels does not prevent age-dependent protein aggregation in the pharynx.

(A) The activity of the kin-19 promoter was up-regulated with age. Fluorescence from the tagRFP reporter driven by the kin-19 promoter increased by 1.6-fold between Day 2 and Day 6 in Pkin-19::tagrfp animals (Unpaired t test * p  = 0.03). Relative fluorescence quantification in the anterior pharyngeal bulb is shown, 5 ms exposure. Numbers of animals quantified are given in the histogram bars. Error bars indicate SEM. (B) kin-19 RNAi treatment prevented an increase in KIN-19::tagRFP levels with age (Day 2 versus Day 6 with kin-19 RNAi, unpaired t test p >0.1). In comparison, KIN-19::tagRFP levels increased in the anterior pharyngeal bulb by 2.4-fold between Day 2 and Day 6 in Pkin-19::kin-19::tagrfp animals treated with control RNAi (Unpaired t test *** p <0.0001). Error bars indicate SEM. (C) Representative animals treated with kin-19 RNAi or control RNAi. (D) Reducing KIN-19::tagRFP levels did not prevent its age-dependent aggregation. Animals were classified into three groups depending on the number of KIN-19::tagRFP puncta present in their anterior pharyngeal bulbs. For statistical analysis, we grouped both categories with more than 10 puncta and compared them to the category with less than 10 puncta. At Day 6, animals treated with control or kin-19 RNAi had significantly more KIN-19::tagRFP aggregation than did control or kin-19(RNAi) animals on Day 2 (with kin-19 RNAi, Day 2 and Day 6, Yates' Chi-square test: p <0.0001; with control RNAi, Day 2 and Day 6, Yates' Chi-square test: p <0.0001). Numbers of animals evaluated are shown in the histogram bars.

Master's degree programmes
Competing in dynamic markets
All programmes A to Z

The Strategyand Organization programme trains you to become a professional expert in managing strategic and organizational challenges based on profound skills in analytics, critical thinking and reflexivity and the ability to act responsibly and foresightedly in complex and dynamic market environments.

Area of interest

The Strategyand Organization specialization takes you on a journey that explores the complexities of dynamic and globally integrated market environments in which business firms compete. We will challenge you to look further for new ways how organizations can rethink the way they strategically manage their boundaries, and how they can act responsibly to make a sustainable contribution to society. After learning about core aspects of strategic management and organizational challenges related to growth, renewal and entrepreneurship, you can chose to specialize in two modules. Each takes a closer perspective on highly topical issues which represent current mega-trends that businesses need to tackle in order to remain competitive: On the one hand, the need for companies to rethink the way they interact with competitors, for instance via forming alliances, mergers, participating in business ecosystems and fostering open innovation. On the other hand, rising stakeholder expectations that urge companies to compete successfully and sustainably by enhancing their corporate social responsibility (CSR) profile.

In all courses in the Strategy and Organization specialization you will explore not only the “content-dimension” of strategy (what is my strategy and how to design it?), but also the “process-dimension” (how to organize it and bring strategy to action?), thus giving you a holistic perspective on strategy making and strategy execution.

You are in the right programme if you are interested in questions such as: How can companies formulate and implement a strategy that allows them to remain competitive in a dynamic market? How should they strategically engage with other firms, including their direct competitors, with their consumers and critical NGOs? How to develop a strategy that not only allows thriving financially, but also ensures sustainability and social responsibility?

We believe that the complexities and dynamics of global business environments can only be grasped by openness and reflexivity about multiple research philosophies to examine and understand the multiplicity of challenges organizations and managers face in today´s world. We therefore go beyond commonly offered economic approaches to strategic management. You will learn that using both quantitative and qualitative methods is necessary to understand how strategy works in practice and how managerial challenges in organizational life can be solved based on better-informed decisions.

Study programme

The Strategy and Organization programme has the following learning goals.

Have the advanced and original academic and research skills to contribute to the body of knowledge Throughout the programme, students learn to review and analyse critically the state of the art research related to strategy and organization to get acquainted to the contemporary debate in the field. Together with research methodology courses (focusing on both quantitative and qualitative approaches) students will be well equipped to make their own original contribution and create knowledge in their master thesis that is not only rigorously conducted but also original, interesting and important from a societal point of view.

Have thorough knowledge of relevant theory and methods Two stage-setting core courses on “Growth Strategies and Organizational Challenges” and “Strategic Entrepreneurship and Organizational Renewal” introduce students to essential knowledge about strategy development and implementation. After that, you can opt for two topical modules that each goes deeper into exploring a specific aspect of strategy and organization. To deepen their knowledge, students can additionally choose from several electives that each are strongly based on fostering student’s ability to act in response to strategic and organizational challenges. To broaden your horizon beyond the core of strategy and organization, you can also choose electives from other Business Administration programmes such as International Management, Leadership and Organizational Change Management, Management Consulting, and Human Resource Management. Several interdisciplinary electives offer an additional opportunity to deepen your knowledge of a topical issue in business and management beyond the boundaries of the Strategy and Organization programme.

Have an academic approach to solving complex [business/economics] problems Every course includes a strong practice component and real-life cases, including visits to companies. In interactive lectures and smaller workgroup sessions, you and your team are challenged to use the theory covered in the course to analyse business situations and provoke with a fresh perspective on possibly unconventional solutions to the problem. During the study period students have the opportunity to do an internship at a company or work on a problem-driven research report in collaboration with business firms.

Have the professional social skills to interact with other professionals Courses have a strong focus on fostering your communicative skills, your ability to speak up and defend your arguments and position in front of a critical audience. This will be practiced during team-based presentations with your peers and invited managers that assess your performance and provide valuable feedback. You will be trained to constructively evaluate strengths and weaknesses of yourself and your peers.

Have an horizon beyond the professional area We put strong emphasis on your ability to think and act critically and be reflexive. This means to not take things for granted as they are, but be able to challenge them, in particular the increasingly contested impact of business on stakeholders as well as social and environmental conditions. In your thesis, you are encouraged to select topics that deal with the interaction between business and society.

Are self-reflective professionals Together with SBE Career Services, the Strategy and Organization specialization offers tailor made workshops to provide you the best possible preparation for your entry to the job market. As part of our portfolio-programme, you are challenged to think critically about who you are and what you want to achieve, reflect about the job you want to have, how to build a professional network that helps you achieve your goals, and how to act responsibly on a solid ethical basis. A two-minute personal video pitch is a required component of your master thesis.

Yes, that is possible.Your eligibility can be assessed without the actual diploma. After (conditional) admission to one of our MSc programmes, we will contact you and ask for the original and official documents for registration at the university. One of these documents is the official diploma (or certified copy of it). Unfortunately, if you hold a HBO BSc diploma you cannot get direct admission to one of our Master's programmes. We have a specific Premaster’s programme for some of our Master’s programmes. The Premaster’s programmes are entirely Dutch taught, you need a NT2-2 certificate to get admission and your GMAT score has to be at least 550. Some Master’s programmes have other entry requirements if you hold a Dutch HBO. Please check ‘admission and application’ on the Master’s page to see if there is a specific Premaster’s programme available. All Master's programmes open to international students are full time programmes, which means that you are expected to spend at least 4 days a week at the university. There are two part-time Master's programmesbothtaught in Dutch. No, all our Master's programmes start in September. International students can apply online. See the webpage "Admission and application" of your respective master's programme for more information. International degree students: 1 April (different deadlines may hold for other category students). Dutch degree students: Application in Studielink before 1 June.

No, we do not require work experience. Sometimes it might help to have some work experience to get admission if your Bachelor's diploma does not cover all the academic requirements (see admission requirements in the left menu). In some cases we might require a GRE or GMAT. For the Master’s programmes in Economics and Spatial, Transport and Environmental Economics a GRE might be required. The admission board will let you know if a GRE is required.At other Master’s programmes a GMAT or GRE is not required. This does not mean that we do not pay any attention to your grades. If you have obtained a good GMAT or GRE score it is recommended to mention this in your application and to enclose a copy of the results. Please note: To be admitted to one of our specific Dutch taught pre-master's programmes you have to score at least 550 on the GMAT. Yes, that is possible. The registration period is in August after your arrival in the Netherlands. You can pay the tuition fee eitherat oncebefore 1 September or youcan choose to sign a contract that you will pay it in installments during the academic year.

I want to send my application form to apply for a Master's programme before the first of April. I expect to graduate before the end of this academic year. Is it possible to apply without having my Bachelor's diploma yet? Make change your default.

Identifying and countering the bad habits that keep your strategy from getting executed is not an easy process, but — as I elaborate on in my book Breaking Bad Habits — there are various practices you can build into your organization to make it work. Depending on your specific circumstances and strategy, this mightinvolve taking on difficult clients or projects that fit your new strategy and that trigger learning throughout the firm. It may involve reshuffling people into different units, to disrupt and alter habitual ways of working and to expose people to alternative ways of doing things. It may also involve identifying key processes and explicitly asking the question “Why do we do it this way?” If the answer is a shrug of the shoulders and a proclamationof “That’s how we’ve always done it,” it may be a prime candidate for change.

There are usually different ways of doing things, and there is seldom one perfect solution, since all alternatives have advantages and disadvantages — whether it concerns an organization’s structure, incentive system, or resource allocation process. We often resist change unless it is crystal clear that the alternative is substantially better. For a successful strategy implementation process, however, it is useful to put the default the other way around: Change it unless it is crystal clear that the old way is substantially better. Execution involves change. Embrace it.

Good article. "Strategy" is so loosely (and sloppily) applied it is no wonder most get it wrong. A strategy is a sentence (and not much more) that explains why the desired action – buying a product, voting for a specific candidate, or donating to a cause – fulfills both the goal and the reason why people will modify their behavior. I wrote about this here
