The Domino Effect


Dominos are small rectangular blocks, each bearing from one to six pips or dots (a domino has a total of 28 pieces). They are commonly used in games such as draw and block, where the players place their tiles side-by-side so that matching ends touch each other. The game can be played with a single set or a combination of different sets of tiles.

As each domino falls, it creates a chain reaction that travels in a straight line and moves at a constant speed. This is similar to the way nerve impulses in your brain move down a nerve cell, but they do not lose energy as they move and can only go one way. This is what gives a domino the power to tip over without a large force pushing on it. Dominoes also have a property called inertia that makes them resist motion if there is no outside force acting on them. However, once a domino is pushed past its tipping point, it has the potential to create a large amount of energy in the form of heat and sound.

The first time I saw Dominoes’ CEO, David Brandon, speak he made it clear that he would be listening to the company’s employees and putting new practices into action. As a result, Domino’s employees experienced a positive change in the workplace. This was in keeping with Domino’s core values, which included championing their customers and fostering employee engagement.

When Domino’s first began to experience a high turnover rate, the previous CEO, David Brandon, took steps to address the problem. He relaxed the dress code, created new leadership training programs and spoke directly to Domino’s employees. In doing so, he was able to get to the root of the issue, which was the feeling that Domino’s no longer cared about their workers and valued their work.

Once Domino’s started to see an improvement in employee morale, it was important for the company to continue these efforts. As a result, when Doyle became CEO, he stayed true to Domino’s core values and listened to the employees to ensure that they were still being heard.

Despite the fact that Domino’s is an international corporation, they are also very much a local business. This is evident in the fact that they take their community’s needs seriously and work to provide employment opportunities where possible. The company also invests heavily in educational programs to encourage young people to pursue careers in the field of technology and science.

The most common type of domino play involves a layout game, in which each player places a domino edge to edge against another so that adjacent sides match or add up to a specific number. These games can be divided into two categories, blocking games and scoring games. When a player cannot lay a tile, they can choose to pick a domino from the boneyard. If the selected domino has an odd number, then that player must pass their turn to the opponent.
