In the Unit 1 Discussion Board, you analyzed a corporation’s social responsibility with regard to its customers. Not only do corporations have responsibly to their customers, but their corporate officers or directors owe fiduciary duties to their corporation and its stockholders. Corporate officers, such as a chief executive officer, president, chief financial officer, treasurer, corporate secretary, and so on are agents and carry out the daily operations of a corporation.

You are Phishy Pharmaceuticals’ CEO, and therefore an agent of Phishy Pharmaceuticals. This week you have learned agents have fiduciary duties they owe the corporation (principal)?  Choose a fiduciary duty, and complete the following:

  • Based on the first initial of your last name, complete the following steps: 
    • First initial A – L: Provide an argument as an agent (CEO) with a duty to the principle (Phishy) that supports the decision to leave the diet pill on the shelf.  
    • First initial M – Z: Provide an argument as an agent (CEO) with a duty to the principle (Phishy) that supports your decision to remove the diet pill from the shelf.

Annuities and Loans

Treasury bills and Treasury notes are an investment security issued by the U.S. government. A Treasury bill matures within one year and investors typically roll over the matured Treasury bill and purchase another Treasury bill the same day. Treasury notes have maturities of up to 10 years.

You are considering investing $50,000 in a Treasury bill that you will renew every 6 months or invest in a Treasury note that you will hold until maturity. Your investment time frame is 9 years.

Current investment opportunity interest rates are 5% and are expected to increase to 7% in 6 months. Would you invest in the Treasury bill that you can rollover every 6 months and reinvest or leave your money in the Treasury note that will mature in 9 years? Discuss your reasoning.

Debate

I hope that we are slowly gaining a holistic view of Outdoor Education, and that your first impressions shared during week 1 have evolved accordingly. We have looked at Outdoor Ed through an academic lens, and had explored how these programs manifest themselves in the market place. At this point we have identified the Outdoor Ed has significant advantages when it is presented as a multifaceted educational experience that targets several different objectives via diversified curriculum. In simplified categories, Outdoor Ed works in the following realms:

Social Emotional Learning– Is the increasingly mainstream terminology that encompasses traditionally labeled ‘emotional intelligence’ topics. SEL is slowly working its way into the public school system, and gaining traction in state mandated educational requirements. For more information check out- https://casel.org/what-is-sel/ (Links to an external site.) 

Environmental Literacy– P21 Sums up Environmental Lit well- http://www.p21.org/about-us/p21-framework/830-environmental-literacy (Links to an external site.) 

Technical Outdoor Skills– From map and compass navigation, travel techniques in bear country, medical knowledge regarding heat related illness, to assessing and managing risk, teaching technical outdoor skills has long been the primary focus of Outdoor Education.

Dynamic programs meets many other needs but for our purposes we will focus on the above three items.

For this week please DEBATE which of the above elements of Outdoor Education you feel are most needed and/or most important in your community. All responses should be posted in the Discussion section under Week 5- Ranking debate.  

First, define your community (family unit, peer group, local population, generational group (e.g. millennial’s) etc. Your definition of community should be explained in 2-3 sentences.

Second, rank from 1-3 your priority of subjects within Outdoor Education that are you feel are most needed and/or most important within your community. Explain your rankings with two-three (2-3) sentences each. Feel free to argue for a component other than Social Emotional Learning, Environmental Lit, or Technical Outdoor Skills. You can also introduce and argue for your own category that you feel exists in Outdoor Rec. 

NOTE: This is a Chinese client, female.

If you are unclear about certain topics, continue to explore, identify, and synthesize 

This is one of our final theoretical assignment, before we shift our focus to the Back country component of this course.

*A reminder that all submitted work should always be your own. Plagiarism in any form will not be accepted and will be reported accordingly*

The End of Term project is designed to develop a Disaster Recovery Plan/Business Continuity Plan (DRP/BCP) for Wilmington University Library.

Manmade Disasters – Protest, Active Shooter, Bomb/Unknown Package

You just received the following email from the Wilmington University Library Director, Mr. Jim McCloskey. He has requested your group’s assistance in developing a Disaster Recovery Plan/Business Continuity Plan (DRP/BCP).

Hello,

Our Wilmington University Library system really needs help with disaster recovery.  I would like to leverage the expertise that you have developed in SEC6060.  

We are currently undergoing a review of our disaster recovery and business continuity plan.  The university is currently developing/updating their emergency preparedness plan.  All WilmU departments, including the library, are being reviewed and will have DRP/BCP contingencies in this plan so, at this time, there is no specific plan for the library. I would welcome input to our plan.  We are struggling.  I would like your recommendations as we go through this process.  I look forward to having an opportunity to read or listen to your plan.

Please send me plans for my review.  Thanks for your help!

In afrique je te plumerai, the cameroonian filmmaker, jean marie | Africa and the World | Xavier University of Louisiana

This a Final Exam Essay for an African studies class based off a film(link will be provided) and previous documents(login to access materials will also be provided) that have been presented throughout the 5-week summer course. It is due Saturday June 23rd at 11:59 pm though I would prefer it at 10:30. The following are guidelines emailed by the instructor:

HIST 2600: AFRICA AND THE WORLD FINAL EXAM DUE: SATURDAY, 23 JUNE 2018 11:59 p.m.

 This is a take-home exam. This means that you cannot simply rely on a broad knowledge of your notes and readings as if you were taking an in-class exam. You do not have to memorize your notes, readings, primary documents, and films. You will have the materials ON Blackboard and I expect you to use all that are relevant. There is no need for you to seek out other information on-line; this information may ultimately be extraneous. You cannot simply repeat what we have said in class or what you have read. Through analytical reasoning, you must find a way to synthesize all relevant sources, integrate them into your argument, and use them to support a well developed THESIS. This is the basis of historical writing. For more information, see Writing Historical Essays on Blackboard. 

Details: 

• The essay should be 4-6 pages (I will not read any pages beyond six). Although some of you may want to write far more than this, presenting a clear and concise argument is a skill.

 • Citations – you do not need to cite general knowledge but you should provide citations for direct quotes. I would advise you to avoid using long quotes because they will diminish space for your own thoughts. 

• Don’t forget a Title 

• There is no need to repeat the question. This only takes away from your own writing space. 

• It should be double-spaced, Times, 12pt, 1.25” margins

 Recommended Procedure: 

1. Read the question closely, paying particular attention to the various components of it

 2. Come up with a tentative thesis for the essay (you will adjust this as you go along) 3. Think about how to organize your paragraphs (themes, eras, etc.) and identify significant dates, etc. that mark moments of transition 

4. Identify voices and data to provide evidence and support your arguments (Which primary documents are relevant?) 

5. Think about how you will develop your analysis (i.e., what does your evidence support?) 

6. Prepare an outline and STRONG topic sentences for each paragraph.

 7. Revise and strengthen your introduction, thesis, and conclusion 

8. Write the essay and walk away from it for a day 

9. Revise and proofread the essay, checking the intro. and conclusion, and all topic sentences.

In Afrique Je te Plumerai, the Cameroonian filmmaker, Jean Marie Teno, asked the question: “How can a country composed of well-structured traditional societies fail to succeed as a state?” Thinking about specific African countries that we have studied, and incorporating all relevant videos, readings, and primary documents – especially from Mods 4, 5, and 6,how would you respond to Teno’s question? Think about your response in political, economic, and socio-cultural terms and bring in specific examples. What historical circumstances have fostered failure and hindered success in the colonial and postcolonial periods? Don’t forget that there are a number of primary documents mentioned within the books you read. Also, remember, Africa is NOT a country and you should be wary of talking about “Africans” in the general sense too often. Different things happened in different places at different times. Be sure to analyze and discuss these differences.

Needs assessment and training objectives

Read the case study entitled Training the Sales Force. Assume the role of a training consultant who has been hired by the company to assess where this training initiative went wrong and how to move forward. 

Write a 2000-word memo that answers the Questions and Flashback Questions located at the end the case study. properly cite any materials you paraphrase or directly quote using APA 6th Edition format.

CASE STUDY TRAINING THE SALES FORCE 

Sales at a large telecommunications company were down for the third quarter. Management reviewed several strategies to improve sales and concluded that one solution would be to improve training for the large, dispersed sales force. For the sake of expediency, the training department began using a needs analysis it had conducted several years before as a basis to develop enhanced training. Their plan was first to update the original needs analysis, and then to develop new training strategies on the basis of what they found. They also began investigating new training technologies as a possible way to reduce training delivery costs. However, management was so intent on doing something quickly that the training department was ultimately pressured into purchasing a generic, off-the-shelf training package from a local vendor. One of the features of the package that appealed to management was that the course could be delivered over the Web, saving the time and expense of having the sales force travel to the main office to receive the training. Hence, even though the package was costly to purchase, the company believed that it was a bargain compared to the expense of developing a new package in-house and delivering it in person to the sales force. Six months after the training had been delivered, sales were still declining. Management turned to the training department for answers. Because no measures of training performance had been collected, the training department had little information upon which to base its diagnosis. For lack of a better idea, members  of the training department began questioning the sales force to see if they could determine why the training was not working. Among other things, the sales people reported that the training was slow and boring, and that it did not teach them any new sales techniques. They also complained that without an instructor, it was impossible to get clarification on things they did not understand. Moreover, they reported that they believed that sales were off not because they needed training in basic sales techniques, but because so many new products were being introduced that they could not keep up. In fact, several of the sales people requested meetings with design engineers just so they could get updated product information. The training department took these findings back to management and requested that they be allowed to design a new training package, beginning with an updated needs analysis to determine the real training deficiencies.

QUESTIONS 

1. What were the objectives of the training program? Write a training objective for the program described in the case that contains the key elements and components of a training objective. How would your training objective have helped in the choice/design of a training program? How would it have helped trainees and managers? 

2. Comment on the company’s decision to purchase a generic, off-the-shelf training package by a local vendor. What were the advantages and disadvantages? Do you think it was a good idea for the company to purchase the training rather than to have it designed in-house? Explain your answer. 

3. Explain how the use of a request for proposal (RFP) might have changed the company’s decision to purchase the training program. Do you think the company would have purchased the same training program from the same vendor if they had created a detailed RFP? Explain your answer.

 4. What effect did the use of the original needs analysis have on the con- tent of the training program and the decision to have it delivered over the Web? Do you think a new needs analysis should have been conducted? If so, what effect might it have had on the design of the training program? 

5. Comment on the use of the Web as the main method of training. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this method of training? What other methods might have been more effective?

 6. If you were to design the training program, describe what you would do differently in terms of (a) training objectives, (b) training content, (c) training methods, (d) active practice and conditions of practice, and (e) active learning. How would your training program be different from  the one described in the case? Would your program be more effective? 

 FLASHBACK QUESTIONS

 1. To what extent was the instructional systems design (ISD) model of training and development used at the telecommunications company? If it had been used to a greater extent, what would have been done differently? Comment on each step of the ISD model.

 2. Comment on how company management concluded that  one solution to the sales problem was to improve training. Do you think that improving training is the best solution to the sales problem? Explain your answer using Mager and Pipe’s performance analysis flowchart for determining solutions to performance problems (see Chapter 4, Figure 4.2 of  
Saks, A., and Haccoun, R. (2015). Managing performance through training and development, 7th ed. Toronto: Nelson.External Tool  ). What are some other possible solutions for improving sales?

 3. The training department has requested that they be allowed to design a new training program for the sales force, beginning with an updated needs analysis. Explain how they should conduct a new needs analysis. Refer to Figure 4.1 when answering this question. 

4. If a new needs analysis is conducted, what will be learned from an organizational, task, and person analysis? How will this information help in the design of a new training program?
