Instructions:  This week you are to write a research paper comparing and contrasting the pedagogical and andragogicalapproaches to instruction and learning. Suppose the senior supervisor or manager of your organization asks you to design a program to increase employee awareness of sexual harassment and train your workers in the appropriate ways to deal with harassment complaints. Which principles (from either approach) do you feel might be useful? Support your choices.

Create 3 fictional scenarios in which an employer would have to deal with any of the following situations of employee poor behavior on the job,

Create 3 fictional scenarios in which an employer would have to deal with any of the following situations of employee poor behavior on the job, Substance Abuse, Sexual Harassment, Fighting, Work Family Conflicts, or Email (or Internet) abuse.

For each case, provide details of the type of employer, the history or the worker at that company, the incident which arose, why it was a clear violation of employer policy, what would be the likely result of arbitration of this issue if the employee acknowledged his wrong doing but asked to keep his job.

Explain the reasoning for your considered outcome. Remember, this is fictional. Create a believable situation, but know that you can have whatever outcome you choose! You may not work in conjunction with any other student to complete this paper.

Any papers/assignments should at a minimum contain 3-5 pages of content (double spaced), include a properly formatted cover page, and a reference listing page with at least three (3) NEW references properly listed at the end of your work. Providing additional references to your assignments demonstrate your desire to conduct additional research on the topic area and can improve your research skills. With all assignments, include properly formatted in-text citations within the body of your work for each of your listed references so the reader can ascertain what is your original thought or ideas and what portion of your work is taken from credible sources to support your work. It is really important to identify work from other sources to ensure that proper credit is provided to researchers in the field.

For the Module 3 SLP you will be applying the concepts you learned in the background materials regarding conflict and negotiation to a situation from your own personal experiences.  Carefully review the background materials regarding types of conflict, causes of conflict, negotiation stages, and conflict management styles.  It is important to first understand these comments from the background readings before starting this assignment.

Once you have thoroughly reviewed the background materials, think of a situation in the workplace where a conflict erupted and management had to intervene and some type of negotiation was involved.  Then write a three page paper addressing the following four questions, and make sure to cite at least one of the required background readings for each of your four answers :

  1. 1. Was this conflict functional or dysfunctional?
  2. 2. What was the cause of the conflict?  Use the terms from the background materials in your answer – e.g. was the conflict a result of interpersonal issues, a specific task involved, due to inter-organizational issues, etc.
  3. 3. Of the five approaches to conflict management outlined in Chapter 1 of Raines (2013) which approach was used by management to resolve this conflict?
  4. 4.Did the negotiations involve integrative or distributive bargaining?  What stages of negotiation did management go through, and did these stages match the four stages discussed in Sims (2002) or the five stages discussed in the Pearson interactive tutorial?
  5. Background reading

Conflict and negotiation. (2014). Pearson Learning Solutions. New York, NY.

Problem 1. A project in its 26th week has an actual cost of $157,000. It was scheduled to have spent $149,000. For the work performed to date, the budgeted value is $172,000. What are the cost and schedule variances for the project? What are the SPI and CPI?

Problem 2. A project has just completed its 87th item in the project plan. It was scheduled to have spent $298,000 at this point in the plan, but has actually spent only $266,000. The project manager estimates that the value of the work actually finished is nearly $282,000. What are the spending and schedule variances for the project? What are the SPI and CPI?

Problem 3. The following project is at the end of its 6th week. Find the cost and schedule variances. Also find the CPI and SPI. Then find the critical ratio of the project using earned value calculations. Finally, calculate the ETC and EAC for the project.

Problem 4.  Solve the following Case:

Stoneworth Paving Company specializes in highway paving jobs for state of Virginia. When the State first awarded Stoneworth the contract, they stipulated a 1% penalty for each week Stoneworth was late on a completion date. Preston Flintrock, the project coordinator for Stoneworth, began to notice that the last two jobs were three weeks late, and the paving job that was due to be completed in the next two weeks was behind schedule. When Preston went in the field to investigate, he found the job to be understaffed, supplier delays, and a high work rejection/repaving needed. As a result, Preston decided to establish a better system of project control and present it to the boss.

Question 1: If you were Preston, what characteristics would you be looking for in a new control system? Explain

Question 2: Will a new control system be adequate for the problem? Explain

The health care system is highly influenced by the external environment (e.g., consumers, suppliers, buyers and regulators) and the societal environment (e.g., economic conditions, cultural values, demographics, government regulation, and technology). Health care leaders and managers use the external and societal environments to make strategic decisions on how to better position health care organizations.

Write a paper that examines at least 3 categories in both the external and societal environments, and describe how health care leaders and managers can use

them to influence strategic decision making. The use of at least 2 peer-reviewed sources, dated within the last five years, is required for this assignment.

Will need at least 1,000 words and 2-4 scholarly references

For this assignment, imagine that a manager that you have worked closely with before (perhaps one that you wrote about in your Module 1–3 SLPs) has to relocate to Korea or France. Do some research about the cultures in Korea and France and carefully review the background readings include Sadri (2013) and Hopkins (2009). Geert Hofstede has a webpage with ratings on cultural dimensions such as individualism and power distance that is also a good source of information.

After doing some research about national culture in Korea and France and reviewing the readings from Sadri (2013) and Hopkins (2009), write a 2- to 3-page paper addressing the following four questions. Make sure to cite at least one of the required background readings in each of your four answers:

  1. How would this manager have to change their leadership style if they relocated to Korea?
  2. How would this manager have to change their negotiation or conflict management style if they relocated to Korea?
  3. How would this manager have to change their leadership style if they relocated to France?
  4. How would this manager have to change their negotiation or conflict management style if they relocated to France?

For each of your answers, make sure to include a discussion of power distance, individualism/collectivism, and any other cultural dimension that you find relevant. Also, make sure to cite the concepts from Sadri (2013) and Hopkins (2009) to support your answers.
