From the timeline, you are aware that in the 1960s it was decided that the mentally ill should be provided care/ treat in their communities. This video will explain this process in greater detail.

Deinstitutionalization Movement

This is another segment of the same movie, explaining how communities in the different states were unable to meet client needs. As a result, many became homeless at that time, and many with a mental health disorder are homeless today.

 Primary Task Response: Within the Discussion Board area, write 400-600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

Social media has become a way for companies to reach their customers. Likewise, networking sites can be used to recruit employees for jobs and for professionals to advance their career. Although these technologies can be a great benefit, there have been many instances when they have created tough situations for both companies and employees. Therefore, many companies have created social media policies that attempt to protect the company, employees, and customers from wrongdoing. With your fellow classmates, please discuss the following:

  • What are the benefits of a corporate social media policy for the company, customers, and employees?
  • As a human resources (HR) professional, how would you recommend employees protect their online privacy?

The constitution | Management homework help

 

Question 1 – Constitution Criticisms: After learning about the criticisms the Anti-federalists had regarding the Constitution, do you agree or disagree with their positions. Be sure to explain why you do or do not support them. Remember that the Constitution proposed a form of government that had never been fully implemented before and no one knew if it was going to work so criticizing it or wanting to change it was not unpatriotic or un-American. 

Question 2 – A new Constitution: If a new brand new constitution was written for the United States, what would you like to see in this new constitution? Would you eliminate the Electoral College? Term limits for Congressmen, Senators, and Judges? A parliamentary government with a prime minister rather than a president? Mandatory military service for everyone? An equal rights clause? Limit or expand the powers of the president or Congress? Universal adult suffrage? Only men vote? Only women? Only the educated? Limit the rights of states or expand them? Universal government health care? No income tax? Establish a specific religion as official in America? An official language? No immigration allowed? No income tax? No sales tax? No taxation at all?

Mba 699 – final project

Competencies

In this project, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following competencies:

  • Manage stakeholder relationships to sustain a competitive advantage
  • Align and integrate a short-term goal with a strategic plan
  • Create a change management strategy

Scenario

You are a business development manager reporting to the vice president (VP) of business development at one of the largest life sciences organizations in the Midwest. While the organization has shown constant growth and profitability since its inception in 1999, the owners have decided that it is time to sell. Given the current uncertainty in global markets, the organization’s board of directors is not convinced that this is the right approach.

While work was underway to find a potential buyer, the VP called on you to join the strategic planning team to assess the organization’s exit strategy and make recommendations to its board of directors. You have been working closely with your strategic planning team to make some initial analyses and recommendations to help plan for the sale of the organization.

As part of the planning team, your first task was to select people from your organization to build a guiding coalition to help the organization transition during and after the acquisition.

Then, you were asked to analyze one of the organization’s core strengths, its talented pool of employees. This included analyzing the attrition data to understand why employees have left the organization and recommending ways to ensure employee stability in the future. This essential information will be provided to potential acquirers to assure them of the organization’s ability to retain talent.

While planning was underway, your first potential buyer started to get cold feet. So, you were asked to research an alternative buyer and build a contingency plan. This contingency plan is an important part of your exit strategy and your report to the board of directors. You and your team were also asked to formulate an acquisition road map that lays out the action steps and timelines for the plan.

Now that the initial analysis and plans are complete, your VP is ready to make the presentation to the board of directors. The VP has asked you to prepare a formal report that you will send to the board prior to the presentation. This report will include the analyses and plans you have developed over the last few weeks. It is important to note that your report will provide a first impression to the board about the upcoming presentation and meeting. You need to craft a compelling message that provides insights based on all the work your team has done and substantiates your position with data. In addition, as a part of your report, you will also outline a change management strategy that will help ensure a smoother transition after the sale of the organization.

Directions

Then, write a report about the current state of human resources and attrition. Include screenshots from your visualizations to support your report. Remember to consider the employee’s employment status when visualizing and analyzing the data. The Status column in the spreadsheet indicates whether the employee is a current or former employee of the organization.

Specifically, you must address the following criteria:

  1. Current employee demographics: Summarize the current employee demographics for the organization from the course scenario.

  2. Attrition analysis : Analyze the given employee data to answer the following questions about attrition in the organization, including its causes and the relationship between attrition and various employment factors.

Alternative buyer research report: Recommend one potential buyer from the alternative buyer options list provided and justify your choice. Visit the potential buyer’s website and research the company’s market and financial situation. Include this recommendation as an appendix in your report.
