Week 2: Business Structures and Business Functions

This Tuesday in class we looked at the way a business is structured and what function that business serves. We discussed how the digital and industrial revolutions have played a role in business structures. We took a look at a case study for making sprinklers in the 1940’s and compared the problems faced to those that may be faced today. We also examined different possible funding models for a business and what implications each has for the organization.

For the other portion of class we worked in our groups on the current assignment. We mainly were working on our groups’ prototypes. My group’s prototype (cookie QR codes) needs some tweaking, but is well underway.
