Explain the process for evaluating an organizational condition to determine if the action required is OD-related.

Prior to beginning this assignment, read Chapter 3 in the course textbook. You may want to review Chapters 1 and 2 in your course textbook for assistance, too.

Review the guidelines found in Table 1.1 (OD realities and misconceptions) to establish the reasoning for OD interaction. In addition, pay special attention to the criteria for determining the validity of an OD problem. Understanding the process is crucial to becoming a successful OD consultant. Watch the following videos, What Should Consultants Do? (Links to an external site.) and Handling a Complainer, to gain perspective on responsible consulting.

There are many ethical responsibilities within the field of the OD consultant. Suppose that you are just beginning your practice as an external OD consultant and an organization approaches you to help them address an issue or change within their company. Before accepting the job, it is important for you to determine whether the problem is an actual OD issue or an internal matter that is better addressed within.

Explain the process for evaluating an organizational condition to determine if the action required is OD-related. Define the specific criteria for determining the core of the problem and the potential solution.

After assessing the request, there are times that you will find the problem is not an OD concern. Prepare a response to the organization stating why the problem is not OD, why you are not the right person for the job, and what options they might have to remedy their problem.

Once your research is complete, begin preparing your paper. The paper must be four to five pages of content (excluding the cover and reference pages). You must include a minimum of three scholarly, peer-reviewed, or credible sources that provide qualified information related to the role of the OD practitioner. In addition, include the course textbook as a scholarly resource to support theory and concepts related to OD strategy. Remember that Wikipedia is not a qualified resource. Use the Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources (Links to an external site.) document for additional guidance. During the construction of the paper, be specific and refrain from making assumptions. Describe all aspects of the search components listed below.

In your paper,

  • Explain the process to determine the validity of the problem.
  • Define specific criteria for OD consulting.
  • Prepare an appropriate response to the organization regarding their issue.

Scenario

Your local library has decided to hang artwork in its lobby. You volunteer at the library and heard that the director of the library plans to go to the mall and buy artwork off the shelf in a home decor store to decorate the walls.

You are outraged, and feel that the library presents an ideal space for more meaningful public displays. After all, your town has such a rich and interesting history, and there are some artists and craftspeople living in the area. You decide to approach the City Council Chair to voice your concerns, but he informs you that the library is on a tight budget, and he doesn’t see the need to spend too much of tax payers money on “decorations.”

You now plan to attend the next City Council meeting to convince the town to do more with the exhibiting space at the library, and that it doesn’t have to be expensive if the displays are cultivated from regional resources.

Instructions

For this assignment, you may use your current location, or pick another American city.

  • List five significant creations in your city/town, such as buildings in different styles of architecture, bridges, and public art. Include the year each item was created.
  • Arrange the chosen creations in chronological order, along with names of their creators.
  • Explain the major styles/periods in art to which each of the five creations/selections relate. Include your rationale for your selection.
  • Identify three additional local creative residents from the past and present, whose work could potentially be displayed at the library. List the forms of art for which they are known.
  • Your timeline should be printable so that it can be distributed to City Council members and attendees at the meeting. Use the timeline templates found under the Insert tab to create a printable timeline.
  • Clearly label your chosen location.

Discuss Cultural, Ethical Context Of Health Literacy

Cultural awareness and health literacy coincide in public health education and promotion, yet they are distinct concepts. Cultural awareness refers to understanding how a person’s culture may inform their attitudes and actions associated with any behavior. This awareness is an important skill in the provision of culturally appropriate health services. Health literacy refers to understanding the basic health information and services to make appropriate decisions (CDC, 2011). Without clear information and an understanding of the information’s importance, people are more likely to skip necessary medical tests, end up in the emergency room more often, and have a harder time managing chronic diseases like diabetes or high blood pressure (Rudd, 2007). Yet, in the United States, nearly 9 out of 10 adults have difficulty using the everyday health information that is routinely available in healthcare facilities, retail outlets, media, and communities (Kutner, 2006).

This week you examine the importance of acquiring cultural awareness skills. In addition, you examine building health literacy skills within communities, including helping others in the community build their own health literacy skills (CDC, 2011). Taking into account ethical considerations, cultural beliefs and possible limitations in health literacy, you design interventions that specifically address the needs of your selected community.

Post a response to the following:

Identify one issue within the concepts of health literacy and cultural awareness. Also, explain the differences between health literacy and cultural awareness. (Demonstrate how these might lead you to a different type of awareness.) Discuss how cultural differences in beliefs and attitudes may influence your work with different communities in relation to HPV vaccines. Discuss to what extent ethical principles of public health practices are considered. Expand on your insights utilizing the Learning Resources.
