Domino’s Pizza and the Domino Effect


Don Meijs of Domino’s goes undercover for the television show Undercover Boss to discover how their employees are treated, discovering that they must always be ready for anything, such as driving in the rain, working overtime hours or dealing with difficult customers. He also learns about Domino’s unique leadership structure which promotes creating leaders rather than promoting existing ones.

Domino’s has been around for more than fifty years and continues to expand rapidly. Their business model relies on local franchisees partnering together, which enables fast, efficient pizza deliveries at an economical cost. Domino’s boasts a strong brand image while looking for ways to innovate its service delivery model.

The term “domino” derives from Latin domine, or master of the house. At first it referred to a type of monastic hood; later it came to be associated with masquerade costumes featuring small masks; eventually becoming one of 28 tiles in a set of dominoes – and thus its usage stuck around! Today dominoes are played using flat rectangular blocks bearing from one to six dots for dots on each tile in a complete set – that make up one domino tile and therefore known by their moniker!

Most dominoes games use double-six sets; however, other variants may use other types. The basic rules are straightforward: each player selects seven tiles from a stock (boneyard) of dominoes to place on-edge in front of them with matching ends or doubles attached; remaining tiles form an alternative stock or boneyard from which they draw tiles to create straight or curved lines with. Players then attempt to match their tiles by laying them next to one another along straight or curved lines; these must have matching ends or doubles so they fall when their ends meet their endpoint. Depending on which game version they play out, chains of dominoes can then be constructed before dissolving when they reach their endpoint!

One domino may seem inconsequential by itself, but when connected together in a chain they have the power to cause serious destruction. This concept of domino effect is crucial when writing novels – small events have the ability to change your plot dramatically; often just one scene from fiction could trigger it all at once, making a tremendous impressionful statement about its power on readers’ stories.

For maximum impact, when creating a dramatic domino effect it is crucial that each scene links back to something significant in your plot that will happen later. This might involve changing relationships among characters or shifting actions during your story’s plot arc or even an event which has major ramifications that will shape its future course.

Dominoes can be tricky to create, and the difficult part lies in getting them to fall at just the right moment. After creating an intricate display and flicking one domino, it could take several nail-biting minutes before all the others start falling – as dominoes have inertia; their resistance to movement depends on external forces pressing against them unless tipping point has been reached on one domino and all subsequent dominoes fall with an audible “thump”. Once that first domino reaches tipping point however, all will come crashing down at once with an audible “thump.”
