Domino is a generic gaming device that’s like dice or playing cards in that a variety of games can be played with it. A domino is a rectangular piece with two ends that either are blank or have a number of spots–called pips–on them. Each pips corresponds to one of the six suits in the game: fives, threes, fours, ones, and zeros.
Dominos are used for many different purposes, from a simple board game of matching pairs of tiles to elaborate works of art. Artists plan their creations on paper first, making sure that every part of the display fits together and will fall as intended when the domino is tipped over. The larger the display, the more difficult it can be to get all the pieces in place.
Creating domino art requires an eye for detail and a strong understanding of the laws of physics. To achieve her intricate displays, domino artist Hevesh carefully tests each section of her setup before assembling them into their final form. Hevesh also has a knack for predicting how the pieces will fall, using her knowledge of physics and mathematics to calculate precisely how long it will take for the dominoes to topple.
Hevesh’s work is not only impressive to look at, but it’s incredibly accurate. For example, when she set the world record for most dominoes toppled in a circular arrangement, all of the 76,017 dominoes fell according to her prediction. Watch this video to see Hevesh explain her process for creating a domino art masterpiece.
The domino effect is a phenomenon that states that when one behavior changes, other related behaviors change as well. For example, when someone starts exercising regularly, they often start eating healthier meals as a natural side effect. Domino’s CEO, David Brandon, understood the power of the domino effect when he hired Tom Doyle to be the company’s new CEO in 2010.
As Domino’s struggled to compete with pizza competitors such as Pizza Hut and Papa John’s, it was clear that Domino’s needed a change. Doyle’s main goal was to increase customer satisfaction and improve profitability by implementing a new model.
Doyle’s strategy included several key initiatives. He began by focusing on the Domino’s delivery model. He refocused the company’s marketing efforts to promote this service and invested in technology that would enable Domino’s to deliver orders faster and more accurately.
Domino’s also made changes to its restaurants. The company introduced a new ordering system that allowed customers to place their order through a mobile app or even text an emoji. This new system increased efficiency and customer satisfaction while reducing operating expenses.
In the future, Domino’s plans to expand into markets such as China. To prepare for this, the company is studying the local culture and learning how customers there prefer to receive their food. In addition, Domino’s is experimenting with delivery options that are unique to the region. This includes experimenting with food delivery by drone.
