reviewing the volume of subscribers to the managed care plan, the executive director is dismayed.

After studying chapter 1 and 2, do the following assignment and submit it through the Turnitin link shown below this assignment.

Questions:

1. At a recent hospital planning meeting, the marketing director reports on consumer interest in a women’s health center. Hearing strong interest, the planning committee endorses the concept. A group of clinicians is charged with developing the program. Upon introduction, market response does not meet expectations. A senior physician was heard to complain, “What went wrong? We did the survey.” Explain the possible reasons for this program’s failure.

2.After reviewing the volume of subscribers to the managed care plan, the executive director is dismayed. Projected enrollment is far below the forecasted level for the targeted time period. A decision is made to hire additional salespeople to market the plan more aggressively. Explain the inconsistencies between this decision and an evolutionary marketing perspective.

3. At a strategic planning retreat of a six-person general surgery group, the senior partner begins by stating, “Our mission is to perform the highest quality invasive surgery procedures in the community.” In what ways might this view of the organization’s mission suffer from the myopia that afflicted the railroads in an earlier era?

4. You recently have been hired as the senior marketing officer for a high deductible health plan. There are two other existing plans in the market that have been operating for the prior two years. One plan is operated by a mid-sized insurance company. It has been targeting employers in the region with a minimum of 500 employees and has penetrated this market fairly successfully. The second plan is operated by a nationally based insurance company with a fairly strong brand presence and heavy advertising budget. Its deductible offering is at the $5000 level for singles and $10000 for couples. You are trying to decide how you might establish a differential advantage relative to these two offerings as the third entrant. What are the alternatives to consider?

Take Quiz 1 that covers chapters 1 and 2.

Testing validity assesses whether research reliably measures the intended purpose of the study and produces facts

Analyze the validity of both attached studies.

For each article, write a response answering the questions in the following: •Box 10.1 Guidelines for Critiquing Design Elements and Study Validity in Quantitative Studies on p. 232 of Nursing Research for your quantitative article.

•Box 25.1 Guidelines for Evaluating Quality and Integrity in Qualitative Studies on p. 571 of Nursing Research for your qualitative article. •Type your answers in a Microsoft® Word document using the template provided in the Class Messages. •Include the article’s title before your answers.

Provide APA-formatted in-text citations and references for all sources. Include an APA-formatted title page.

BOX 10.1: Guidelines for Critiquing Design Elements and Study Validity in Quantitative Studies • 1. Was there adequate statistical power? Did the manner in which the independent variable was operationalized create strong contrasts that enhanced statistical power? Was precision enhanced by controlling confounding variables? If hypotheses were not supported (e.g., a hypothesized relationship was not found), is it possible that statistical conclusion validity was compromised? • 2. In intervention studies, did the researchers attend to intervention fidelity? For example, were staff adequately trained? Was the implementation of the intervention monitored? Was attention paid to both the delivery and receipt of the intervention? • 3. What evidence does the report provide that selection biases were eliminated or minimized? What steps were taken to control confounding participant characteristics that could affect the equivalence of groups being compared? Were these steps adequate? • 4. To what extent did the study design rule out the plausibility of other threats to internal validity, such as history, attrition, maturation, and so on? What are your overall conclusions about the internal validity of the study? • 5. Were there any major threats to the construct validity of the study? In intervention studies, was there a good match between the underlying conceptualization of the intervention and its operationalization? Was the intervention “pure” or was it confounded with extraneous content, such as researcher expectations? Was the setting or site a good exemplar of the type of setting envisioned in the conceptualization? • 6. Was the context of the study sufficiently described to enhance its capacity for external validity? Were the settings or participants representative of the types to which results were designed to be generalized? • 7. Overall, did the researcher appropriately balance validity concerns? Was attention paid to certain types of threats (e.g., internal validity) at the expense of others (e.g., external validity)? BOX 25.1: Guidelines for Evaluating Quality and Integrity in Qualitative Studies • 1. Did the report discuss efforts to enhance or evaluate the quality of the data and the overall inquiry? If so, is the description sufficiently detailed and clear? If not, was there other information that allows you to draw inferences about the quality of the data, the analysis, and the interpretations? • 2. Which specific techniques (if any) did the researcher use to enhance the quality of the inquiry? Were these strategies used judiciously and to good effect? • 3. What quality-enhancement strategies were not used? Would supplementary strategies have strengthened your confidence in the study and its evidence? • 4. Given the efforts to enhance data quality, what can you conclude about the study’s integrity, rigor, or trustworthiness?

The student will provide a brief historical view of the organization.

Final Project A Final Project is due the last class session.  The Final Project will contribute 30% to the course grade. With instructor approval, students will select an organization that either has or is experiencing challenges with its compensation and benefit system. The student will provide a brief historical view of the organization. The student should assess the company’s current challenge, review other organizations that had a similar situation (and the strategy they devised to address the issue), explore theories and strategies that should be contemplated to address the situation, and finally, include a recommendation to management regarding how to address/resolve the situation. Importantly, the student should ensure any recommendations are based on solid research and analysis and reflect a comprehensive solution to the problem.

The Final Paper must include a minimum of eight credible sources (in addition to textbook). Research topics must be reviewed in advance with the instructor.

Writing the Compensation and Benefits Paper This essay must reflect what is considered the current “state of the art” systems, reflecting both academic and professional (practical) orientations. The Final Paper must be 8-10 double-spaced pages (not including the title and reference pages) and be formatted according to APA style guidelines. This paper may be written in first person. This Final Paper should review the available research, discuss the implications of that research for the topic area, and provide conclusions. The paper should be organized into the following areas (use section headings to organize your key points): Introduction: The area of research should be described and the purpose of the research. That is, describe the topic area in terms of (a) its relationship to the topic and (b) what you want to be able to contribute to the training literature by writing this paper. Your introduction must include a succinct thesis statement. Review of the literature: Students must provide a brief historical view of the organization and assess the company’s current challenges. This review will include an examination of other organizations with similar situations, including the strategies used to address their issues. Students need to explore theories and strategies that could address the situation. Identify any areas that may have not been addressed in the literature used for review.  Implications: Assess any implications. Organize the implications of the literature in a manner that logically builds the case for your recommendations. For each of your implications be sure to reference the literature related to that implication. Be sure to indicate whether the implication is one that has already been made in the literature or if this is one that is original to you through your own analysis.  Recommendations: Based on the research, students must make recommendations for a comprehensive solution to the problem. This is where you tie all the pieces together. Make sure your recommendations are organized in a logical order that synthesizes your major points relative to the purpose of your paper. Be sure that your recommendations are justified and have credible support. Inspire your audience to think about the practical application of your topic. Remember, this is the last thing you are leaving with your reader so make the context of your message clear, communicate the impact of your topic, and leave a lasting impression. Conclusion: Be sure your conclusion summarizes your paper and explains how you have addressed the thesis statement.   Your paper should include: Must include a title page according to APA style. Must include an introductory paragraph with a succinct thesis statement. Must address the topic of the paper with critical thought and analysis. Must include section headings to organize your key points clearly. Must include citations to references that support the assertions made and facts presented in the paper. Must conclude a conclusion paragraph that ties directly back to your thesis statement. Must use APA style as outlined in the approved APA style guide to document all sources. Must include, on the final page, a reference list that is completed according to APA style as outlined in the approved APA style guide. Carefully review the Grading Rubric  (Links to an external site.) Links to an external site. for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment

law requires employers to accommodate a fairly wide range of employee behaviors and conditions.

Many students are surprised to learn that employees may be fired for any reason not expressly prohibited by the law. As we have seen, the law requires employers to accommodate a fairly wide range of employee behaviors and conditions. However, there are still classes of employees and behaviors that are not protected by the federal law, e.g., sexual orientation or political affiliation. Should the law be expanded to cover additional classes and behaviors? Why or why not?
