AGHA HASAN ABEDI
Introduction
Agha Hasan Abedi also known as Agha Sahab (May 14, 1922 – August 5, 1995) was a Pakistani banker and philanthropist who founded the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) in 1972. BCCI was at one point the seventh largest private bank in the world, but it collapsed in 1991 after regulators in the United States and the United Kingdom found it was involved in a money laundering scandal. Mr. Abedi underwent a heart transplant operation in 1988, and died of a heart attack on August 5, 1995 in Karachi.
Early Banking Career
Agha Hasan Abedi was born in a well off Shia Muslim family in Lucknow, British India and migrated to Pakistan after the liberation of Pakistan from colonial rule in 1947. Beginning his career with Habib Bank before independence, he brought about significant changes in Pakistan's banking culture when he founded the United Bank Ltd (UBL) in 1959 in Chittagong. Starting as its first general manager, he quickly rose to the position of president and chairman of the board of directors. Under his stewardship, UBL became the second largest bank in Pakistan.
BCCI Years
When banking was nationalized in Pakistan in 1972, Mr. Abedi founded the Bank of Credit and Commerce International with the Bank of America NT & SA as a major shareholder. Registered in Luxembourg, the BCCI began its operations from a two-room head office in London. Over the years, it developed into a worldwide banking operation with branches in 72 countries and 16,000 employees on its payroll. Mr. Abedi was personally responsible for inducting a large number of Pakistanis into the field of international banking and almost 80 per cent of the BCCI's top executive positions at the head office and in branches in various countries were held by Pakistanis. Mr. Abedi severed his connection with BCCI in 1990 after suffering a heart attack and led a retired…...

For example, a manager may want to tell people when a meeting has been arranged, or to inform people of Health and Safety requirements. Communicating with customers to tell them about a new product through advertising and promotion is also an example.

Inflation in Pakistan

...the Prime Minister, through her directive, asked the Pakistan Institute of Development Economics (PIDE) to study the causes and cures of high inflation rate in Pakistan. The PIDE responded to the directive by identifying key factors responsible for the high rate of inflation [see Naqvi, et al. (1994)]. These factors are: (i) increase in the prices of food, raw materials, fuel, manufactured goods; (ii) inflationary expectations; and (iii) the growth rate of money supply in relation to the GDP. Naqvi, et al. (1994) ranked the price of food as the most important causative factor followed by inflationary expectations. The growth in the money supply was relatively less important, partly because its impact is felt with a one-year lag. (M. Aynul Hasan, Ashfaque H. Khan, Hafiz A. Pasha, and M. Ajaz Rasheed: What Explains the Current High Rate of Inflation in Pakistan: The Pakistan Development Review 34: 4 Part III (Winter 1995) pp. 927-943) After remaining relatively low for quite a long time, the inflation rate accelerated in Pakistan in late 2003, Following the 1998-99 crisis, inflation was reduced to below 5 percent by 2000 and remained stable through 2003. Tight monetary policy combined with fiscal consolidation appears to have contributed to this low-inflation environment. Inflation follows broad money growth and private sector credit growth closely. With monetary growth picking up, inflation followed and increased sharply in late 2003, peaking at 1 1 percent year-on-year in......

...The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a Middle Eastern federation of seven states situated in the southeast of the Arabian Peninsula in Southwest Asia on the Persian Gulf, bordering Oman and Saudi Arabia. The seven states, termed emirates, are Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras al-Khaimah, Sharjah, and Umm al-Quwain. Independence (1971). By 1966 it had become clear the British Government could no longer afford to administer and protect what is now the United Arab Emirates. British MPs debated the preparedness of the Royal Navy to defend the trucial sheikhdoms. Secretary of State for Defence Denis Healey reported that the British Armed Forces were seriously overstretched and in some respects dangerously under-equipped to defend the trucial sheikhdoms. On 24 January 1968, British Prime Minister Harold Wilson announced the government's decision, reaffirmed in March 1971 by Prime Minister Edward Heath to end the treaty relationships with the seven Trucial sheikhdoms that had been, together with Bahrain and Qatar, under British protection. Days after the announcement, the ruler of Abu Dhabi Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, fearing vulnerability, tried to persuade the British to honour the protection treaties by offering to pay the full costs of keeping the British Armed Forces in the Emirates. The British Labour government rejected the offer.[32] After Labour MP Goronwy Roberts informed Sheikh Zayed of the news of British withdrawal, the nine Gulf sheikhdoms attempted to......

Recipients enjoyed the titles of Sardar-i-Ala or Sardar-i-Ali before their names and also received grants of land. The original Order was disbanded in 1929, and was later revived by King Muhammad Zahir Shah. In addition, several important tribal leaders and chiefs in Afghanistan, were also designated as 'Sardars'. * In Persia, Sardar-i-Bozorg was the title of both Hossein Khan Sardar and his brother Hasan Khan Qajar.

Management Defn

..."in charge", "handling" the task at hand, and "directing" yourself in the process. You "managed" to accomplish the task not "through others". So the definition of management in this context is that you got things done all by yourself, using your skills, knowledge and effort. Other definitions are "administration" and "the process of managing." This appears to fit more the previous way of managing people which is more administrative than strategic. Management guru Peter Drucker (1909-2005) stated that the basic task of a management is marketing and innovation. He was explaining "management" as a factor of production Apparently he was referring to the people who are performing the management function. But in a specific situation. Agha Hasan Abedi The conventional definition of management is getting work done through people, but real management is developing people through work." He appears to refer to the Human Resource Development (HRD) function. Again, this is referring to a specific situation. Michael Armstrong "The basic definition of management should therefore be extended to read 'deciding what to do and then getting it done through the effective use of resources'." The words "deciding what to do" and "effective use" point to strategic planning. Resources will include people. Lee Iacocca "Management is nothing more than motivating other people." Motivating people requires us to perform a series of functions related to management to ensure that what we......

Japanese Womens Language

...Explain Inoue's argument that "the copy precedes the original." Compare the Japanese data to the data presented by Agha, Moore, and/or Kiesling. In this essay I will be discussing Inuoe’s concept of a “copy preceding the original” in terms of her research on Japanese women’s language and then comparing it to the works written by Agha (2003), Moore (2007; 2011) and Kiesling (2004). Agha (2003) concerns himself on the subject of accent and standardised English within Britain, while Moore (2007 & 2011) looks at accent within the Irish context and how the media directly influences its production. The last of these, Kiesling (2004), looks at the origins of the word “dude” becoming an integral part of conversation among both young men and women. All of these contain the same element when it comes to the emergence of a linguistic discourse – a copy precedes the original. Japanese women’s language is first and foremost a series of linguistic constructs and meanings that are only exclusive to women (Inoue, 2006). It is associated with feminine characteristics, such as being delicate, polite, gentle and non-aggressive. All that is women’s language is strictly Japanese – it encompasses history, culture, tradition, and politics, while going against Western culture (Inoue, 2006). While being such an essential component to Japanese-ness, most women (especially those in regional areas and the working class) are not able to produce women’s language, nor have direct access to it......

Synthesis Accounting Scandals

...assets made it the largest corporate bankruptcy in U.S. history until WorldCom's bankruptcy the following year. Many executives at Enron were indicted for a variety of charges and were later sentenced to prison. Enron's auditor, Arthur Andersen, was found guilty in a United States District Court, but by the time the ruling was overturned at the U.S. Supreme Court, the firm had lost the majority of its customers and had shut down. As a consequence of the scandal, new regulations and legislation were enacted to expand the accuracy of financial reporting for public companies.  ❖ Bank of Credit and Commerce International The Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI) was a major international bank founded in 1972 by Agha Hasan Abedi, a Pakistani financier. The Bank was registered in Luxembourg with head offices in Karachi and London. Within a decade BCCI touched its peak. It operated in 78 countries, had over 400 branches, and had assets in excess of US$20 billion, making it the 7th largest private bank in the world by assets. BCCI came under the inspection of numerous financial regulators and intelligence agencies in the 1980s due to concerns that it was poorly regulated. Subsequent investigations exposed that it was concerned in massive money laundering and other financial crimes, and illegally gained controlling interest in a major American bank. BCCI became the focus of a massive regulatory battle in 1991 and on July 5 of that year customs......

In sharing this forecast and plan with the team I have identified key target markets, giving them direction on which to focus their time. Leading on from this plan, my second example is that I have agreed SMART targets with each individual for them to deliver. As the targets follow this model they are measurable and realistic installing motivation and also enabling me to monitor progress as they are achieved. Identifying with management in particular, the below quote by renowned theorist, Agha Hasan Abedi is useful in highlighting the role of a manager; ‘The conventional definition of management is getting work done through people but real management is developing people through work’. Agha Hasan Abedi This statement can be interpreted in saying that an effective (real) manager will engage their people in the work set in order to maximise their productivity. This person will also get the most out of their work by being highly motivated and in-turn this can have a positive impact which will potentially benefit their lives outside as well as inside of work (This can link to what Daniel Goleman described as ‘Social Skill’(‘Emotional Intelligence’, 1995).
