What is strategic management, and why is it critical to the success of an organization in meeting its goals and mission?

ASSIGNMENT DETAILS

Review the SHRM case “International HRM Case Study.”

Prepare a 4- to 6-page case analysis on the topic of strategic management and why it is critical to the success of an organization in meeting its goals and mission. In your analysis, respond to the following question:

What is strategic management, and why is it critical to the success of an organization in meeting its goals and mission?

Your analysis of this case and your written submission should reflect an understanding of the critical issues of the case, integrating the material covered in the text, and present concise and well-reasoned justifications for the stance that you take.

Case analysis criteria: Your case analysis should consist of:

  • A brief analysis of the situation and pending decision problem, as presented in the case, and as relevant to your answer. This should be exceptionally brief, and you should assume the person reading the assignment is familiar with the details of the case.
  • Identification of the major issues surrounding the organization or individuals involved with the organization.
  • Identification of alternate courses of action to address the issues identified.
  • The decision or recommendation for action, with the appropriate supporting arguments.

The case question is designed to guide the direction of your analysis in the case. Your analysis should address and ultimately answer the question.

Additionally in the case analysis, make sure that you assess the value of multiculturalism and diversity in a globalenvironment.

You may discuss your case analysis assignment with the class, but you must submit your own original work.

Case analysis tips: Avoid common errors in case analyses, such as:

  • Focusing too heavily on minor issues.
  • Lamenting because of insufficient data in the case and ignoring creative alternatives.
  • Rehashing of case data — you should assume the reader knows the case.
  • Not appropriately evaluating the quality of the case’s data.
  • Obscuring the quantitative analysis or making it difficult to understand.

Typical “minus (–)” grades result from submissions that:

  • Are late.
  • Are not well integrated and lack clarity.
  • Do not address timing issues.
  • Do not recognize the cost implications or are not practical.
  • Get carried away with personal biases and are not pertinent to the key issues.
  • Are not thoroughly proofread and corrected.

Make sure your document includes:

  • Your name
  • Date
  • Course name and section number
  • Unit number
  • Case name
  • Page numbers

The case analysis should be a minimum of 4–6 pages long, double-spaced. Check for correct spelling, grammar, punctuation, mechanics, and usage. Citations should be in APA style.

Why should multiple sampling methodologies be considered for health care research?

PART 1

Write a 175- to 265-word response to the following questions:

  • Why should multiple sampling methodologies be considered for health care research? Explain.
  • What are the risks of sampling errors?

PART 2

Respond to classmates reponses to the same question below:

A.

Different sampling methodologies should be considered for health care research in order to define the objectives of the research being conducted. Some samplings will have errors and miscalculations of the survey results. The type of sampling method that will need to be used will depend on what research is being conducted. Elfil (2017), “Clinical research usually involves patients with a certain disease or a condition. The generalizability of clinical research findings is based on multiple factors related to the internal and external validity of the research methods. The main methodological issue that influences the generalizability of clinical research findings is the sampling method” (abstract). There are two different types of sampling errors which are called non-sampling errors and sampling errors. Some of these errors are Population specification error (non-sampling error), Sample frame error (non-sampling error), Selection Error (non-sampling error), Non-Response ( non-sampling error). Some of the sampling errors can be that the research data and finding are never 100% correct and could very well end up with miscalculations. It all depends on what research is being done on which sampling method is the correct one to use.

B.

In my best professional opinion I would state that multiple sampling methodologies for health care research purposes provides a growing path and ongoing opportunities encompassing the quality care being provided, ample opportunities for the personnel, which aides the organization (s) in which they’re employed with within its reputation and growth.

There’s clinical trials or even other regulatory programs. The goal is to not just serve one but many. During each process the team is determining what is the most useful approach. They must also determine the health care audience, the specificity guidelines they would need, and certainly what questions are they trying to solve for improvement factors. So I feel that caution is a must because each mission serves its own unique purpose and there will be errors presenting themselves regardless of the method (s) taken.

Sample bias occurs, sample frame errors arise, and most commonly systemic errors. The goal when such errors arise is to make the corrections necessary so there are fail safe plans or alternatives available in order to acquire the most accurate data possible. This is what sustains the integrity of what will be and hold the safety of those of high importance.

Explain what the sources of stress for employees are and what HRM managers can do to reduce stress in the workplace

Respond to each prompt then respond to a peer. Each response should be 200 words followed by a 200 word response to a peer. APA formant. Use at least 1 reference for each response. The last two are just peer responses.

Click on the Period 4: Dialogue link above, find your group, and write two posts to the following topic:

Assignment 1:

4A – The assigned reading for this period is eclectic covering labor relations, discipline, and safety. For this period’s forum post to the group an initial message that presents the reasons, in your supported opinion, why businesses ended up with labor relations and union problems and safety concerns. This is not meant to ‘just’ point the finger at business but look back over the course of history and ask yourself what led to the problems. Then think about how a Biblical worldview might have changed, or not changed, the attitudes and principles at work and would the business workplace be different today if we developed the business understanding on scripture.  Post one reply to one other student either adding to his/her thoughts or politely challenging his/her thoughts by Sunday of the first week. Please use academic references and APA formatting.

Peer answer that needs a response 

Labor relations is defined as “the continuous relationship between a defined group of employees and management (Ivancevich & Konopaske, 2013). Its purpose is to ensure that management is considering fair compensation and good working conditions for their employees. The importance of unions grew during the Civil War due to the increase in industrial expansion. It resulted in “huge industrial monopolies” (Ivancevich & Konopaske, 2013). During this time, “employment conditions included long work hours, unsafe working conditions, low wages, and high employment” (Ivancevich & Konopaske, 2013). The formation of unions was highly opposed by employers when the idea was first proposed. However, over time, unions were successfully created to help address employee issues. Before the creation of unions, employees were able to dictate employee wages and were able to reduce wages if they desired. The first unions were organized to defend “trades against diluted and cheap labor and, increasingly, demanding a shorter workday in the face of the Industrial Revolution” (History.com Editors, 2009). Unions were not only established to enhance work life and employee’s compensation. Its early purpose was to promote social equality which was derived from the “ideals of the American Revolution” (History.com Editors, 2009).

4B – Using the content from chapter 17 of the text, please explain what the sources of stress for employees are and what HRM managers can do to reduce stress in the workplace by Thursday.    Post one reply to one other student either adding to his/her thoughts or politely challenging his/her thoughts by Sunday of the first week.Please use academic references and APA formatting. 

Peer answer that needs response

According to Ryba (2019), “Studies estimate that stress costs U.S. businesses an estimated $300 billion annually, and the workplace has been identified as the number one source of stress for American workers.” Unfortunately, job related stress can lead to many harmful diseases such as coronary heart disease, hypertension and depression. This is due to stress directly affecting people’s endocrine system, cardiovascular system, muscular system and emotions (Ivancevich & Konopaske, 2012, p. 542).

Ryba (2019) mentions that one way to reduce stress in the workplace is to work to cultivate and encourage wellness within the company. This could include bringing in a yoga teacher for employees to take a class together or offering healthier snacks to employees. At my company, a lot of us go on walks around the building during our fifteen minute breaks. It is refreshing and helps me reset to go back into work feeling more renewed. Some other ideas that HRM managers can implement to help minimize employee stress level are providing onsite counseling, providing recognition to employees when they are doing a good job and creating quiet time as a nice break (Ryba, 2019).

PART TWO. The prompt is below. For this, you do not have to do an initial response. Only a response to the peer.

Week 2A:  The assigned reading is about planning and preparing. Consider that you are VP-HRM for a large firm operating in the US or overseas or both. The board has asked you to prepare a 10-15 year HR plan accommodating trends in demographics of generations, immigrations, training/education levels of employees worldwide, economic, technical, political, etc. By Thursday of Week 1 of Period 2, post an initial 200-word message of substance stating what business and countries you are in (real or fictitious) to help the group with your thoughts and show the trends for two of the categories you have found and the strategies you recommend. An example of a trend might be something like:

EXAMPLE of one trend: “My organization is in healthcare in Venezuela and Brazil. The organization is in an unstable market, making our ten year plan very uncertain. We sensed a change in the market, after the inauguration of the new administration in 2013. In reaction, we created a ten year strategic human resource forecast to analyze our presence in Venezuela. President Nicolas Maduro controls the economy and is unwilling to contribute to federal health care spending (Central Intelligence Agency, 2017). Currently, our hospitals are also unsustainable because of a lack of properly trained workforce and lack of medical supplies. The once flourishing talent pool has fled to other Latin countries because of the turmoil. I will regretfully have to recommend to the board that we consider downsizing our facilities in Venezuela.” 

Post a 200-word reply to one other student either adding to his/her thoughts or politely challenging his/her thoughts by Sunday. Please use academic references and APA Format. 

Week 2B – Present three major provisions of the Civil Rights Act of 1991 and give an example from published news reports by Thursday of Week 2/Period 2. Post a 200-word reply to one other student either adding to his/her thoughts or politely challenging his/her thoughts by Sunday.  Please use academic references and APA Format.

The civil rights act of 1991 went into law on November 21st that year. The civil rights acts of 1991 amended the previous civil rights act of 1964 in a few different ways. First, it expanded discrimination to include color, sex, race, religion, or creed. Second, it expanded the rights and injury compensation for employees to sue an employer London, 1991). One last example would be that it made it much harder for employers to fight against disparate impact discrimination in court (Alito, 1991). These amendments added more strength to the legislation already in place and expanded protections and civil rights for employees. Now for example, an employee who is suing for punitive and compensatory damages is entitled to a jury trial rather than a judge’s decision. (Alito, 1992). This was a big change as juries are seen as more sympathetic to employee cases of injury or discrimination than judges are. The civil rights act of 1991 was not retroactive and so cases at that time were not able to be covered under these new amendments which proved to be a difficult situation for civil rights activists to navigate as was ruled by the supreme court (London, 1991).

I currently work at Pizza Inn. Pizza Inn is an American restaurant chain and an international food franchise (About Us, 2018). During the height of the pandemic, the pizza industry thrived (Albert, 2021). While other restaurants and food chains saw a 19 percent decrease in business, the pizza industry only saw a .2 percent decrease in their business (Albert, 2021). The pizza industry has done well because pizza is seen as a comfort food (Coley, 2020). Pizza places have also done well because most deliver, have takeout, or can pick up quickly. With the pandemic, these options made going to a pizza restaurant became even more desirable (Coley, 2020). With restrictions lifting slightly with Covid-19, pizza places are somewhat losing business, and as the restrictions are lifted, more and more business will more than likely decrease as people will want to eat elsewhere (Albert, 2021).

Over the next 10-15 years, pizza will still be a popular food item. To increase business, restaurants are coming out with online ordering and staying on top of trends to remain relevant (Albert, 2021). Staying on top of popular trends and offering things such as Doordash or Uber Eats is an excellent way to ensure that pizza stays relevant. As long as pizza is around, customers will always be willing to purchase this fantastic comfort food.

Evaluate and revise ethical issues in visual media communication to improve awareness of social perceptions.

Assignment Content

  1. Competency
    Evaluate and revise ethical issues in visual media communication to improve awareness of social perceptions.

    Student Success Criteria
    View the grading rubric for this deliverable by selecting the “This item is graded with a rubric” link, which is located in the Details & Information pane.

    Scenario
    You are the campaign manager for a well known environmental outreach organization. The current campaign is to bring awareness to the organization’s Ohio River Clean-Up Project. As the manager, one of your tasks is to review all content and visuals used by the campaign. You actively evaluate and revise any ethical issues that may be detrimental to the project, your organization, or society in general.

    As you meet with one of the campaign designers, you identify several ethical problems with the new poster he has created. His poster includes the following elements:

    1. The poster image shows a group of poor, urban, African-American children playing alongside the Ohio River.
    2. The poster text states: “Let’s help them clean up.”
    3. The poster has several overlaid images in the corner of a few celebrities, which gives the impression of celebrity endorsement.
    4. There are no sources acknowledged anywhere on the poster.
    5. The poster has been digitally altered to make the African-American children appear thinner, darker, and dirtier.
    6. Since you are flying out to a campaign meeting in one hour, you ask this campaign designer to hold this poster and wait for your video review.

      You plan to take time tomorrow to create a seven minute or less video analysis. Using screen share, you can present the poster image visually and verbally instruct this designer how to correct several ethical visual issues. You realize you will not only have to identify the ethical visual issues and explain how to revise and change them, but you will also need to clearly describe to him the effect these unethical media issues will have on society.
