1. Nursing Paper

The first step of the EBP process is to develop a question from the nursing practice problem of interest.

Select a practice problem of interest to use as the focus of your research.

Start with the patient and identify the clinical problems or issues that arise from clinical care.

Following the PICOT format, write a PICOT statement in your selected practice problem area of interest, which is applicable to your proposed capstone project.

Conduct a literature search to locate research articles focused on your selected practice problem of interest. This literature search should include both quantitative and qualitative peer-reviewed research articles to support your practice problem.

The PICOT statement will provide a framework for your capstone project (the project students must complete during their final course in the RN-BSN program of study).

Select six peer-reviewed research articles which will be utilized through the next 5 weeks as reference sources. Be sure that some of the articles use qualitative research and that some use quantitative research. Create a reference list in which the six articles are listed. Beneath each reference include the article’s abstract. The completed assignment should have a title page and a reference list with abstracts.

Suggestions for locating qualitative and quantitative research articles from credible sources:

  1. Use a library database such as CINAHL Complete for your search.
  2. Using the advanced search page check the box beside “Research Article” in the “Limit Your Results” section.
  3. When setting up the search you can type your topic in the top box, then add quantitative or qualitative as a search term in one of the lower boxes. Research articles often are described as qualitative or quantitative.

To narrow/broaden your search, remove the words qualitative and quantitative and include words that narrow or broaden your main topic. For example: Diabetes and pediatric and dialysis. To determine what research design was used, review the abstract and the methods section of the article. The author will provide a description of data collection using qualitative or quantitative methods.

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are not required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite.

2. CMIS 320 project

In this assignment you will perform the physical design and implementation using SQL Data Definition Language (DDL) and proceed with populating the Mom and Pop Johnson Video Store database via Data Manipulation Language (DML) SQL commands. 

For each of the steps below you may create a separate SQL script file and SPOOL file or you may want to put the SPOOL output for several steps, from the same SQL script file, in the same file.  Be sure your SPOOL file(s) contains your SQL statements along with the Oracle responses and/or displayed results.  Do NOT submit your SQL script files.  Only submit your output SPOOL files.

Assignment Details

1) Create Oracle database tables using SQL Data Definition Language (DDL) for each table listed in the metadata of Project 2.  You may need to use a combination of DROP TABLE, CREATE TABLE, and ALTER TABLE SQL statements.  Make sure that entity and referential integrity are enforced by declaring a primary key for each table (these may be composite keys) and declaring all appropriate foreign keys. Your CREATE TABLE and ALTER TABLE statements (if desired) must show integrity constraints, as appropriate, for NOT NULL, UNIQUE, PRIMARY KEY, FOREIGN KEY, REFERENCES, and CHECK constraints. Be sure to save your SQL script file used to create these tables with a .sql extension and your output SPOOL file with a .lst or .txt extension.  You should rerun and test your SQL script file until it runs without any errors (this is why you’ll want to include DROP TABLE statements).  Submit your SPOOL file showing that all SQL in your SQL script file worked properly.

2) Populate each of your tables with at least five valid rows of data each and show the SQL INSERT statements as you executed them. Populate other tables in your database, as necessary, to satisfy referential integrity. Save your SQL script file and SPOOL file with the correct extensions.  You should test and rerun your SQL script file until it runs without any errors.  Submit your SPOOL file showing that all SQL in your SQL script file worked properly.

3) Develop an SQL script file to perform the following queries and updates. You should test your SQL script file until it runs without any errors. 

  • Retrieve all of your customers’ names, account numbers, and addresses (street and zip code only), sorted by account number.
  • Retrieve all of the videos rented in the last 30 days and sort in chronological rental date order.  
  • Produce a list of your distributors and all their information sorted in order by company name.
  • Update a customer name to change their maiden name to a married name. You can choose which row to update.  Make sure that you use the primary key column in your WHERE clause to affect only a specific row.  You may want to include a ROLLBACK statement to undo your data update.
  • Delete a customer from the database. You can choose which row to delete. Make sure that you use the primary key column in your WHERE clause to affect only a specific row.  You may want to include a ROLLBACK statement to undo your data deletion. 

Submit your SPOOL file(s) showing that all SQL in your SQL script file worked properly.  Show the actual SQL statements executed and the results the SQL produced below the code by making sure that you have a SET ECHO STATEMENT in your SQL script file(s).

9. Success Factors in Virtual Collaboration

Description

Overview

Write a 7–10 page analysis of how the practices of your own organization (or another organization with which you are familiar) influence the success of its virtual teams.

You will benefit from taking a close look at how your own organization fares in terms of addressing critical success factors for virtual teams, as well as from building an understanding of the skills needed to participate successfully in virtual team collaboration.

Preparation

In their seminal work, Mastering Virtual Teams (2011), Duarte and Snyder identify seven critical success factors in virtual team collaboration:

1. Human resource policies.
2. Training and development.
3. Standard organizational processes.
4. Communication and collaboration technology.
5. Organizational culture.
6. Leadership.
7. Competence (p. 10).

Note: You should be able to find a number of resources that address these critical success factors through your research for this assessment.

To prepare for this assessment, research the seven critical success factors in virtual team collaboration. Consider your own real-world experiences with these factors in the workplace.

Deliverable

This assessment incorporates multiple elements. Be sure to thoroughly address each before submitting the assessment.

Use the seven critical success factors to analyze how the practices of your own organization (or another organization with which you are familiar) influence the success of its virtual teams. Base your analysis on your own experience of being a member of a virtual team within the organization.

Note: If you have not participated in a virtual team, base your analysis on a hypothetical virtual team experience, using what you know of your organization’s practices.

In developing this case, it is helpful to assume that you have been tasked by executive management to conduct an audit of your organization’s ability to support virtual team collaboration. Your audit will include a detailed report in each of the seven critical success factors. Go beyond a description of the “as-is” state for each of these factors in your audit to evaluate and analyze each of the factors to identify strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that the current state presents to the organization in terms of its ability to support virtual team collaboration.

Remember that the executive management of your company is not interested in a report about the criteria themselves—they are not interested in reading about human resource policies in the abstract, for example—but about how the organization measures up to the criteria. Use the success factors to analyze the organization—do not fall into the trap of writing about the criteria. Use the criteria to describe, analyze, and evaluate the organization.

Explain how organizational practices influenced (or might influence) the virtual team’s performance. Address all of the following:

Human resource policies: Do the organization’s career development resources address the needs of virtual team members? Does the organizational reward system recognize the efforts and successes of those who work virtually? Are rewards given only for results, or are they also given for effort? Does the organization actively support work arrangements such as telecommuting?
Training and development: Is there access to technical training for virtual team members? Is there access to training in the area of working across cultures? Is there a program of ongoing training as needed? Is there a system for sharing what has been learned, such as a database?
Standard organizational processes: Are there standard technical processes used throughout the organization (with regard to virtual teams)? Are there standard soft processes used throughout the organization? Does the organization support the ability to adapt processes when necessary? Does the organizational culture support shared ways of doing business across teams?
Communication and collaboration technology: Are there consistent standards for electronic communication and collaboration tools across the organization? Does the organization possess or provide enough resources to purchase and support state-of-the-art electronic communication and collaboration technology? Do all employees (across departments and geographic location) have equal access to electronic communication and collaboration technology?
Organizational culture: Is there trust between the organization, its partners, and other external stakeholders? Are teamwork and collaboration standard practices? Are people from different cultures valued?
Leadership: Do leaders allocate enough resources for the training and technology needed by virtual teams? What level of expectation do leaders set for virtual team performance? Do leaders model exemplary behavior by working across boundaries and using technology effectively?
Competence: Are team leaders experienced with working in virtual environments? Are team members experienced with working in virtual team environments? Are team leaders experienced in working across both organizational and cultural boundaries? Are team members experienced in working across both organizational and cultural boundaries?
Support your analyses with real examples, as well as evidence from your research and readings.

Additional Requirements

Ensure written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message and quality.
Your report should be 7–10 content pages, in addition to a title page and references page.
Use 12-point, Times New Roman.
Use at least three scholarly resources.
Follow APA rules for attributing sources that support your analysis and conclusions. As a reminder related to using APA rules to ensure academic honesty:
When using a direct quote (using exact or nearly exact wording), you must enclose the quoted wording in quotation marks, immediately followed by an in-text citation. The source must then be listed in your references page.
When paraphrasing (using your own words to describe a nonoriginal idea), the paraphrased idea must be immediately followed by an in-text citation and the source must be listed in your references page.

Suggested Resources
The following optional resources are provided to support you in completing the assessment or to provide a helpful context.

14. Facilities Management

As the manager of a resort hotel with 500 guest roomsyou are concerned with your monthly water and sewage bill.   The water company uses the graduated billing schedule listed below. Your operation is currently using 2,500,000 gallons of water per month. It is time to replace your 3.6 gallon per flush toilets and you initially decided to install 1.8 gallons per flush high efficiency toilets.  The toilet salesperson is recommending that you install anultra-high efficiency model that used 0.9 gallons per flush.  The ultra-high efficiency toilets will cost you $250more than the high efficiency toilets per toilet, installed. Based on information your chief engineer found, you estimate that on average every toilet in an occupied room is flushed 10 times per day.  Your average annual occupancy rate is 91.0747%.Assume 30.5 days per month when calculating your monthly water savings.  Based on the information above and the rate scale below,your ultimate goal is to determine if it is more cost effective to install the ultra-high efficiency toilets?

Water rates:  monthly charge of $150.00 per month plus usage charge base on the rates listed below.

            Amount of water used                                    Rate per 1000 gallons

            First 100,000 gallons                           $6.00

            Next 500,000 gallons                          $5.00

            Next 1,000,000 gallons                                   $4.00

            Anything over 1,600,000 gallons                    $2.00

Sewage rates: monthly charge of $200.00 per month plus usage charge based on the total water used.

            Amount of sewage produced =           Total water used minus deduct meter          

Rate per 1000 gallons is $10.00

            Deduct meter shows a monthly average of 125,000 gallons

Water and sewage rates are expected to rise at the same rate,2.0202% per month. The owners of the operation expect a monthly rate of return on their investment of at least 1.0%. Assume that the toilets will last for 30 years. Assume that you will take out a loan for the toilets.  You must pay 10% down make payments at the end of each month until the remainder has been paid off, 72 month.  The nominal annual interest rate for the loan is 3.99%. The equation for converting a nominal annual rate to a monthly rate is:

            imonthly = (1 + iannual)(1/12) -1

The equation to calculate the monthly payment is:

Monthly loan payment = (total cost – down payment) * (imonthly * (1 + imonthly)n) / ((1 + imonthly)n -1)

The equation for the effective monthly interest rate is:

ieffective = ((1 + inominal) / (1 + Inflation)) – 1

The present value equations are:

PV = FV * (1 + i)-n

PV = A * (((1 + ieffective)n – 1) / (ieffective * (1 + ieffective)n))

Give the above information answer the following questions. You must show ALL your work to receive credit.

1.   How much will your water usage drop each month (to the nearest gallon) if you install the ultra-high       efficiency toilets compared to the high efficiency toilets?

      (type your answer here)

2.   If your water usage is for the entire facility is projected to be 2,250,000 gallons if the high efficiency toilets are installed, how much water will be used each month by your entire facility if you install the ultra-high efficiency toilets?

      (type your answer here)

3.   If you install the ultra-high efficiency toilets, what will be your average monthly water and sewage bill (to the nearest dollar) for the entire facility?

28. Philosophical explication and analysis of the first chapter of “Being and Some Philosophers” by Etienne Gilson (refer to instructions for specifications).

Instruction

Prompt: The goal of this essay is to understand and explicate, in your own words, what Gilson has to say in the first chapter. This essay should explain the argument that Gilson makes and comment on the significance of his analysis. In your essay you will be expected to touch on the following three problems:

1. What does Gilson mean by the “existential neutrality” of our conceptual knowledge? How does this frame the problem that Gilson intends to study in “Being and some Philosophers”?

2. What is Parmenides’ answer to the question, “what is being”? How is Plato the heir and continuator of Parmenides?

3. How does plato give rise to the Neo-Platonic “metaphysics of the One”? What problems does such a metaphysics pose for a Christian thinker?

 Specifications:

This essay should be 6-8 pages (double spaced), 12 point in the “Times New Roman” font, with one inch margins, plagiarism free, and proofread. Helpful Tip: Gilson’s book is a philosophical analysis of the ways that various philosophers have understood the meaning of being in the Platonic tradition. His goal is to present not a history of metaphysics, but rather a thinking through of the views of several historical philosophers. 

29. ChE 230Problem Set 3

Optimization

  1. 75 Points. You are to optimize a series of two heat exchangers. The first heat exchanger uses low-pressure steam as a utility. The second heat exchanger uses medium-pressure steam. The third uses high-pressure steam. Together, the heat exchangers must bring a 1.5 kg/s stream of Dowtherm from 25C to 220C. Dowtherm has a heat capacity of 6.0 . Both types of steam enter as a saturated vapor and leave as a saturated liquid (so the utility stream does not change temperature). The following table summarizes the relevant properties:
  lps mps hps
Temp (C) 160 187 254
Cost $13.28/GJ $14.19/GJ $17.70/GJ

Heat exchangers are costed by their area. To determine the area, the following design equation must be used

Where  is the heat duty,  is the overall heat transfer coefficient (,  is the area of the heat exchanger, and  is the log-mean temperature difference.

See the following diagram for more information.

Description: Counter Flow Heat Exchanger LMTD

Heat exchangers are costed according to the following equation

 where A is area in m2.

Since there are two intermediate temperatures, this is a multivariable optimization. You are to optimize this system two ways:

Text Box: T_out=220℃
Text Box: T_2
Text Box: T_1
Text Box: T_in=25℃
Text Box: lps
Text Box: mps
Text Box: hps
  1. Set  , then minimize the EAOC with respect to using golden search. Once you get the optimal, keep that constant, and minimize the EAOC with respect to , again using golden search. Repeat this process once more to see if the optimal temperatures change. This is called a “greedy” optimization. (Greedy because you only look at one variable over all others at a time.) Was this technique effective for this system?
  2. Use a grid search to minimize the EAOC with respect to both temperatures simultaneously. You can then use solver or fmincon to see how closely the solutions match.

30. Self-Defense Essay for Criminal Law

Instruction

Instructions: You have been asked to give a lecture to a group of first-time gun owners about self-defense. Explain when force may be used in self-defense. What about deadly force?

(Introduction) You will then use a minimum of three (3) resources to gather facts about the topic. (Body) Finally, you will report your findings. (Conclusion)

31. Business

When a business is not focused on sustainability, value may be solely determined outside its customers’ interest in green behavior. Suppose a restaurant makes a great-tasting hamburger. Very few of its customers might care whether or not the restaurant engages in green business practices. However, what if there are two restaurants that make equally great-tasting burgers, but one is green while the other is not? Many customers may choose the green business, because the business adds value to its offerings by engaging in sustainable practices. In the case of sustainable products, meaning those products made with an effort to be environmentally and socially responsible, sustainability plays a large role in the customers’ decisions to buy, and tends to be central to the company’s brand.

Instruction

Identify a Saudi business that may not yet be focused on sustainability. Suppose this company decides it would like to deliver products that are more socially, environmentally, and economically superior. In a 4-5 page paper, not including the cover and reference pages, present the company with the total value proposition from a sustainability perspective. In that total value proposition, include a discussion of use values and nonuse values for the business’ green products. How should the business determine WTP, WTA, or consumer surplus? Your required readings this week provide insight which will aid you in your analysis. Make sure to cite and reference any information gleaned from those documents. Additionally, include two current and scholarly sources beyond the course materials and readings to support your analysis. Current sources are those published in the most recent five years. Scholarly sources come from peer’s reviewed journals. Use Saudi Electronic University academic writing standards and APA style guidelines, citing references as appropriate.

How does your proposed sample size relate to the planned power?

Operational definitions of variables included in your study, which are as follows.


Independent variables (IVs): What they are and how are they measured or defined in the actual research operations of your study? For example, what exactly are the treatments being compared? Give specifics of how they vary in such things as intensity, content, and length and cite supportive references for background information including the effect sizes. This will depend on the number and types of IVs and levels or categories of each.

Dependent variables (DVs): What they are and how are they measured in the actual research operations of your study? How was the measurement technique developed? What are the reliabilities, validities (citing supportive resources), and level of measurement of each measure? Is the resulting score a single item score or a composite score? How do you interpret the score? Are there norms available for interpreting the score? What were the known relationships between and among the measures prior to your data collection? Are there covariates (CVs) you plan to use? If so, how are these measured and what are all the details of these measures (repeat all the questions for the DVs)? This again will depend on the number of DVs. However, sufficient information should be given for each to answer all these questions. This could take several pages.

Procedures: Detail exactly how you plan to develop measurements (if not already developed) and to obtain participants or observations. How are your procedures compatible with ethical and legal standards of research including institutional review board (IRB) expectations? (This could be two pages long if no new development instrument is being developed, but it could be longer if you need to detail such things as these procedures and the establishment of reliability.)

Results: Detail your plans for using statistical analyses to evaluate each of your research questions or hypotheses. How will you assemble and prepare your data for SPSS analysis? Given your statistical analysis(es), how will you do such things as screen data, make any necessary modifications in the database, and compute composite scores, if necessary? How will you proceed with your statistical analysis(es)? Give sample outcome tables (with dummy data) that would be part of what you would be presenting if you were reporting this as actual study results. Depending on the study and the statistical methods used, this could be two to three pages long for each question or hypothesis. However, this is variable.

Discussion: Point out possible limitations or problems with your design and any ideas for ways to improve on them. (This could be, at most, two pages long.)

Appendix: Include copies of your test instruments and/or other supporting information.

Your Final Prospectus Project should be of 10–15 pages (plus Appendix, if included). Present it in Microsoft Word. Name your file R7034_M7_A3_LastName_FirstInitial.doc. Submit it to theSubmissions Area by the due date assigned.

Note: Your facilitator will assign you one research proposal submitted by a classmate for peer review in Module 8.

All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources.

Assignment 1: SPSS Discriminant Analysis

While regression analysis evaluates the ability of multiple predictor variables to predict values on a single continuous variable, discriminant analysis evaluates the ability of multiple predictor variables to predict classification on a single categorical variable. Discriminant analysis can also be viewed as the reverse of a MANOVA: In MANOVA, the IVs are the groups and the DVs are the predictors. In DA, the IVs are the predictors and the DVs are the groups. (In order to avoid semantic confusion, it’s easier to refer to IVs as the predictors—or discriminating variables—and to DVs as the grouping variables.)

The emphases of MANOVA and DA are different. While MANOVA seeks to find a linear combination of variables that will maximize the test statistic, DA is used to establish the linear combination of dependent variables that maximally discriminates among groups. DA is used to predict membership in naturally occurring groups and to determine if a combination of variables can reliably predict group membership. Several variables are included in a study to see which ones best contribute to the discrimination between groups.

As with factor analysis, discriminant functions are identified through the analysis, but it remains for the researcher to provide a meaningful interpretation and labeling of these.

Use the Discussion Area to ask for help in completing the tasks from your classmates and the facilitator; likewise, offer your suggestions to those asking for help. Participating in this community of scholars will help you clarify processes, solve problems, and gain the immediate reinforcement you need to quickly solidify gains that you’re making in working with multiple variables and advanced statistics.

Open the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) data file created in
M6: Assignment 1. Use the following variables:

Create a Grouping Criterion Variable: Using the continuous data for Number of Previous Hospitalizations, transform this into categorical data by assigning patients to different categorical groups. You will add a new variable to your data file, which indicates which group each case falls into. For example, use the descriptive statistics and frequency information for the number of hospitalizations to decide your cut-offs for scores to define each group and then to assign patients to a group such as Group 1 (lower number of hospitalizations), Group 2 (medium number of hospitalizations), and Group 3 (higher number of hospitalizations) or you may consider quartiles, a median split, and dividing by standard deviation units. Justify your method.

Select five (or more, if justified) continuous variables to use as predictor variables for your analysis. Briefly justify your choices.

Conduct a discriminant analysis of these data. Use the same methods and choices found in the textbook’s sample study. Include tests for homogeneity of group variances.

Save the SPSS file as R7034_M7_A1_LastName_FirstInitial.sav.

Prepare a two- to three-page (plus Appendix for tables) response, which presents a summary report of the following information:

  • State a research question that could be studied using the specified variables for a discriminant analysis.
  • Report the results of prescreens for the missing data, multivariate outliers (Mahalanobis distance), univariate normality, and linearity (bivariate scatter plots). Indicate if any transformations or other decisions are required.
  • In your Appendix, report group descriptive statistics, analysis of variance (ANOVA) summary tables, summary of steps, eigenvalues, Wilks’ lambda table, standardized discriminant function coefficients, cannonical correlation or structure matrix, classification of results, and discriminant function means.
  • Summarize the results of the discriminant analysis, including an interpretation of discriminant functions. Compare the outcomes in terms of the research question.

Create your response in Microsoft Word. Name your file R7034_M7_A1_LastName_FirstInitial.doc. Submit your response to the Discussion Area by the due date assigned.

All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources.

Directions for Portfolios

Each portfolio consists of five projects. The recommended word count is at minimum 1000 words per project (or 5000 per portfolio). The projects are purposefully open to customization. Students are free to make adaptations to match their specific career interests.

Evaluation criteria. The grade is determined as follows: 50% for completion + 50% for quality. What constitutes high quality in business is necessarily defined by competition. That said, here are some typical quality markers:

  1. readability; shorter sentences are generally clearer than longer ones
  2. logic; all of the assumptions and arguments make sense
  3. concepts and frameworks from the slides and beyond (e.g., Changing Minds)
  4. all concepts and frameworks are explained before they are applied
  5. several different sources of data and insights from appropriate sources
  6. useful examples to illustrate the key points

  8. elegant presentation, including clear organization and consistent formatting
  9. conceptual illustrations (e.g., process maps, comparison tables)
  10. photographs or other images that provide evidence or animate key ideas

Examples. Students who have limited exposure to professional business reports are encouraged to review examples before producing their own.

Submission checklist. Consider these items before you submit:

  1. Does your cover page include your own name?
  2. Does your table of contents list page numbers for each project?
  3. Does each project begin on a new page?
  4. Are your sources cited in the text and referenced in a works cited page?

EMAN 620 – Information Technology in Emergency Management

Module # 5

Mapping Exercise

Due at the end of Module # 5

Goal:

The Goal of this exercise is to familiarize the student with online tools that help organize and display information on a map in a short time frame.  The tool I recommend you use is Google Earth.   You will be creating a map after an act of terrorism has occurred. 

Objectives:

The objectives of this exercise are to:

  • Explore a online mapping platform like Google Earth
  • Identify Key Features for a functional site map 
  • Produce a map with a legend that is clear, readable and has value to commanders and responders

Background Scenario:

A “ Dirty bomb “ has been detonated directly in front of the White house in Washington D.C . This occurred at 10 a.m. on 04-20-(this year). The President was not at the White House during the blast. It is utter chaos, with DC Fire/EMS responding. 

Your role is the Emergency manager for the City of Washington D.C. Within minutes of the attack you activate all emergency functions. At 13:00 you are expected to provide a briefing to the Mayor of D.C., and the President of the United States at a nearby facility. You have been asked to keep your brief short with a single map that portrays the situation and the response effort.

Your initial assessment reveals that there is damage to buildings within a ¼ mile.  There are currently 86 fatalities and 200+ injured.

There happens to be absolutely no wind on the day. However you are still concerned about the potential for radiation exposure. Your staff recommends a “ hot zone” with a mile radius. That means everything inside that area has potential for radiation.

Tasks:

Your overall task is to create a status map for the purpose of:

  1. Assuming you watched the video and have downloaded Google Desk Top
    1. If you cannot access Google Maps you can use another map making program to produce your map or you can create a paper map.
  2. Review the scenario. More than enough information available.
    1. Email or text me with any questions.
  3. Create a status map that provides a snapshot of the situation. A few things you should consider 
    1. The immediate impact zone
    1. The “ hot zone” i.e. suspected contamination zone
    1. Points of ingress/egress for rescuers
    1. Staging area for rescue areas
    1. De-contamination area for people/equipment leaving
    1. Temporary Debris Storage area. This should be a large area of debris from the rescue effort can be temporarily stockpiled.
  4. Create a legend, Title and any other required formatting.

Deliverables:

By the end of Module # 5 you are to submit a file (yes PDF is ok) in the assignment folder with your result. The file should contain the Map with a legend that is clear and easy to read. 

Notes:

I purposely provided sparse information.  Take as many creative and logical liberties as like to develop the scenario on your own. The point is that you have to produce a single map – with what you feel is the most important info to provide a snapshot of the situation.  It’s up to you decide to what should go on there.

The Role of Stakeholders

  1. What are the stakeholders?
  2. How do the three primary stakeholder groups influence organizations?
  3. What steps would you take to effectively communicate a strategic plan?

Final Strategic Plan

Create the Final Strategic Plan. The Final Strategic Plan contains the elements of all the previous weeks’ components and incorporates instructor feedback. However, this is not a compilation or “cut-n-paste” of these prior papers. This is intended to be a stand-alone project that builds upon your earlier learnings. The strategic recommendations will be evaluated and the best options chosen for the recommendation. The final strategic plan contains:  (JP Morgan Chase)

Management Accounting Problem : Holzmann Cleaning Services

Intermediate Management Accounting 2 / 3 PROJECT 1 (30 MARKS) Project 1 is due at the end of Week 3. It is out of 30 marks. Required: Assume the role of a partner in Martine’s consulting business. Martine has asked you to assist her with completing the analysis and developing a report for Gretel. Prepare a report and supporting exhibits for Gretel, president of Holzmann Cleaning Services (HCS), to analyze HCS’s current profitability and provide analysis of the overhead allocations used. It should include the following: 1. Profit analysis: Prepare a brief high-level overview of the 20X6 results in total based on Exhibit 1 in the project details document. Your discussion should highlight significant changes between 20X5 and 20X6 operations, and between 20X6 actual and 20X6 budgeted operations. (8 marks) 2. Costing analysis: Prepare overall comments on the current method HCS uses to allocate its overhead and provide further analysis on ways in which the company can improve its costing methods in order to assess and manage its costs. Your analysis should include the following: a) Calculate overhead applied rate per direct labour hour (rounded to the nearest dollar), the overhead applied amount and the resulting over- or underapplied overhead for 20X6 using the traditional costing approach. Base this on the existing method of allocating service overhead using direct labour hours as the allocation base. The 20X6 actual wages and benefit rate were the same as budgeted at $13.20 per hour. (2 marks) b) Use the regression analyses in Exhibit 3 in Project Details to determine the viability of each cost driver to predict costs for cleaning supplies and transportation. This should include reasons for choosing or not choosing the regression analyses that were provided. (3 marks) c) Use the regression analysis equation chosen in part (b) to separate the variable cost(s) from the fixed cost(s). Only the fixed cost(s) would be categorized with the other overhead costs. With the adjusted overhead costs, follow the traditional costing approach to recalculate the overhead application rate using direct labour hours as the allocation base. Calculate the over- or underapplied overhead by applying the new overhead rate. Compare your result to part (a) and provide an analysis of the differences between the two application rates. (4 marks) Intermediate Management Accounting Project 1 3 / 3 d) Using activity-based costing and the information in Exhibit 2 in Project Details, prepare a partial profit analysis for commercial and residential operations. Use wages and benefits costs (allocated on the same basis as revenue) and all costs from the activitybased data to prepare a partial operating statement that includes all direct/traceable costs. Compare the segment margins between the commercial and residential operations. (4 marks) Provide three points that highlight the reasons for the difference between cost allocations using activity-based costing and traditional costing. (3 marks) e) Provide overall comments on the results of these analyses in your report. (3 marks) In addition to the above, award 3 marks for report format and professionalism. Your report should clearly communicate the important details of the case and effectively persuade the reader to act on your advice. NOTE ON ROUNDING: Use unrounded numbers for all calculations and round the final answer to the nearest dollar

Intermediate Management Accounting 2 / 11 PROJECT DETAILS “Adding time to your day” is the slogan of Holzmann Cleaning Services (HCS). The company was started by Gretel, who began offering cleaning services to support herself while she was in university studying for a business degree. At the age of 21 she was determined to be known as more than a simple labourer who needed to fund her education. She researched different cleaning products and methodologies to deliver a fast and thorough service to her clients. Ten years later, the business has grown in size and has expanded throughout the city and local rural areas. Gretel is the majority shareholder of the private corporation with two other shareholders. The company consists of a full-time staff of three operations managers (one for commercial operations and two for residential operations), an administrative staff of three, and part-time cleaning staff of over 200 university students, called cleaning agents. Not only is Gretel able to provide high-quality cleaning services to her clients, but she is also able to offer university students part-time work, reducing the need for student loans. The company also owns a fleet of three vans that are used to transport cleaning agents to and from work sites. A fourth van is available for the operations managers to make site visits if necessary. Gretel’s training regimen is thorough as potential hires are trained in the areas of cleaning products, effective cleaning methods and acceptable deportment when entering a client’s residence or place of business. Through this training process, which Gretel carries out herself, she is able to hire only those individuals she feels would provide the high-quality service that keeps clients coming back. Recently, Gretel engaged Martine, a CPA and a local consultant, to review the latest operating statement. Gretel is discouraged with the 20X6 profit margin (Exhibit 1). Additionally, she is concerned with the cash flow as there are seasonal fluctuations in the work, with more work in the months of March and April when many homeowners request more hours for springcleaning chores. As such, Gretel must ensure that there is enough cash on hand to build cleaning supplies inventories and pay for training of any new recruits required to handle the extra work. Other than springtime, cleaning supplies inventory on hand is minimal. She is hoping that Martine will provide some guidance that will help the company attain its profit margins. She has called a meeting with Martine, Sam, the operations manager of commercial operations and Ling, one of the operations managers of residential operations. Intermediate Management Accounting Project Details 3 / 11 GRETEL: I thought we had a pretty good year; sales were up, and we’ve had great reviews. Yet when I look at the bottom line, the profit margin is only 9%. I was hoping for at least 12%. According to industry statistics, the profit margins should be at least 25%. The other issue is that we were short on cash in the late summer. MARTINE: Have there been any significant changes in the operations in the past year? LING: I’ve noted that we’re taking on more residential clients outside the city. I’ve had to make sure that we schedule in more travel time to reach the destination on time. SAM: And don’t forget that at the request of a majority of our commercial clients, we’ve included more eco-friendly cleaning products. It helps boost their image of being socially responsible. MARTINE: I can imagine that this has increased both your travel and cleaning supplies costs. How do you currently cost out your services and how do you arrive at a charge-out rate? GRETEL: We treat the wage costs of our cleaning agents as direct costs. The cost of cleaning supplies, transportation and operations managers’ salaries are considered overhead. We apply the overhead at $10 per direct labour hour and add on an additional 60% to arrive at our charge-out rate. MARTINE: Have you ever taken an activity-based approach to costing your services? Besides the increase in cleaning supplies’ costs, are there some other significant differences in the costs consumed by your commercial clients versus the costs consumed by your residential clients? LING: Well, I’ve had a bit of free time on the residential side so I’ve helped Sam out on occasion with the commercial side. I’ve noted that most of the commercial clients are clustered around the downtown core. So it takes less time to travel there. GRETEL: Because our commercial clients have in-house accounts payable departments, we usually only bill them once per month. While our more recent residential clients are on monthly billing, we still have some that are on weekly billing. However, you should note that we spend almost three times more hours training cleaning agents who work for our commercial clients than training those who work for our residential clients. Part of the reason is that eco-friendly products require more application knowledge. MARTINE: So I understand that the operations managers are not that busy on the residential side? What’s the breakdown between residential and commercial clients? GRETEL: We have about 120 regular commercial clients. They account for 60% of the revenue, even though they amount to less than half of the clients. As for the residential side, I’m not sure we require both full-time operations managers. Alex has gone home early on some days because there was a shortage of work. Intermediate Management Accounting Project Details 4 / 11 MARTINE: And are your cash disbursements pretty much in line with your revenues? GRETEL: For the most part. Our major expenses are cleaning supplies and transportation, which mostly fluctuate with revenues, except for annual preventive maintenance on our vans, which takes place in the slower months of July and August. Oh, and one more thing: I would really like a solid way of giving a potential client a quote before we begin a contract with them. Right now, I measure the square metres and estimate how many hours it will take to complete the work. I multiply that by the direct labour hourly rate and then add on our $10 overhead factor per direct labour hour and 60% for profit. Any ideas? MARTINE: Let me work on this and get back to you with a full report. In the week following the meeting, Martine spent time with Gretel, the operations managers and the administrative staff. She developed the following: · cost pools for indirect costs related to cleaning services along with the cost driver for each pool and activity breakdowns for residential and commercial clients (Exhibit 2) · regression analyses summary results (Exhibit 3) to determine the statistical relationship between: o direct labour hours and transportation costs o direct labour hours and cleaning supplies costs · details regarding expected growth for 20X7 (Exhibit 4) · details regarding a typical commercial and residential client that could be used to develop quotes (Exhibit 5) · details relating to cash collections and disbursements (Exhibit 6) Intermediate Management Accounting Project Details 5 / 11 Exhibit 1 REVENUES AND EXPENSES 20X5 20X6 20X6 Budget Total revenue 728,910 819,000 778,050 90,090 12% 40,950 5% Cost of sales Wages and benefits 233,747 292,184 277,575 58,437 25% 14,609 5% Cleaning supplies 66,406 88,541 67,291 22,135 33% 21,250 32% Transportation costs (including fuel, insurance, depreciation and maintenance) 23,619 30,281 25,890 6,662 28% 4,391 17% Salaries of operations managers 116,000 120,000 118,000 4,000 3% 2,000 2% Cost of sales (direct expenses) 439,772 531,006 488,756 91,234 21% 42,250 9% Gross margin 289,138 287,994 289,294 Operating expenses Administrative labour (training and billing) 175,750 185,000 166,500 9,250 5% 18,500 11% Depreciation (excluding transportation vehicles) 2,703 2,350 2,303 (353) (13%) 47 2% Repairs and maintenance (excluding transportation) 881 890 872 9 1% 18 2% Utilities and telephone/telecommunication 4,712 4,620 4,528 (92) (2%) 92 2% Rent 10,320 10,320 10,114 0 0% 206 2% Interest and bank charges 998 1,050 1,029 52 5% 21 2% Business fees 4,200 4,200 4,116 0 0% 84 2% Advertising and promotion 1,890 2,520 2,470 630 33% 50 2% Insurance (excluding transportation) 2,594 2,730 2,675 136 5% 55 2% 204,048 213,680 194,607 9,632 5% 19,073 10% Net operating profit/loss 85,090 74,314 94,687 (10,776) (13%) (20,373) (22%) 11.67% 9.07% 12.17% Variance from 20X5 actual Variance from 20X6 budget EXHIBIT 1 Holzmann Cleaning Services — Report on Operations Intermediate Management Accounting Project Details 6 / 11 Exhibit 2 Cost pools and activities for activity-based costing analysis Cost driver Cost pool Total activity Commercial activity Residential activity Cleaning supplies commercial Square metres $ 70,833 664,054 664,054 Cleaning supplies residential Square metres $ 17,708 442,703 442,703 Billing Number of invoices $ 129,500 3,054 1,062 1,992 Transportation Number of kilometres $ 30,281 53,124 15,937 37,187 Training Number of hours $ 55,500 554 416 138 Operations management Number of managers $ 120,000 3 1 2 Total expenses $ 423,822 Intermediate Management Accounting Project Details 7 / 11 Exhibit 3 Summary results of regression analyses Analysis of transportation costs and statistical relationship with direct labour hours (Based on monthly information) Regression Statistics Multiple R 0.370106959 R Square 0.136979161 Adjusted R Square 0.050677077 Standard Error 205.6109076 Observations 12 ANOVA d f SS MS Regression 1 67100.46346 67100.46346 Residual 10 422758.4532 42275.84532 Total 11 489858.9167 Coefficients Standard Error t-Stat Intercept 2006.01049 414.9577567 4.8342523 Labour hours 0.280500299 0.222646934 1.25984353 TRANSPORTATION ANALYSIS USING LABOUR HOURS Intermediate Management Accounting Project Details 8 / 11 Analysis of cleaning-supply costs and statistical relationship with direct labour hours (Based on monthly information) Regression Statistics Multiple R 0.834454446 R Square 0.696314222 Adjusted R Square 0.665945644 Standard Error 152.2094937 Observations 12 ANOVA d f SS MS Regression 1 531207.6171 531207.6171 Residual 10 231677.2996 23167.72996 Total 11 762884.9167 Coefficients Standard Error t-Stat Intercept 5922.619076 307.1846274 19.28032378 Labour hours 0.78922842 0.164820911 4.788399819 CLEANING SUPPLIES COST ANALYSIS USING LABOUR HOURS Intermediate Management Accounting Project Details 9 / 11 Exhibit 4 20X7 expected growth data Change in dollars: Expected revenue growth (due to increase in charge-out rate to $39 per hour) 8% Expected increase in cleaning supplies costs due to increase in volume (residential and commercial) 7% Expected increase in commercial cleaning supplies costs due to price increase 9% Labour wage and benefit rate per hour $13.46 Expected increase in transportation costs 9% Change in activity for ABC analysis: Increase in overall square metres of cleaning 7% Increase in number of invoices (commercial only, see option 2 below for residential) 5% Increase total kilometres driven (30% of total kilometres relate to commercial clients) 8% All other expenses will be unchanged. Cost reduction options: 1. Reduce operations management staff costs by putting one residential operations manager on half-time. This would reduce the total cost from $120,000 to $100,000. 2.

Read the article entitled, “Are We Smarter than Our Parents?” in chapter 5 of your textbook. This article addresses a study by Dr. James Flynn of the rise of the IQ rate over generations, and how statistics are involved in tracking this phenomenon, especially with reference to the material in chapter 5.

Additionally choose and answer one of the four questions below in a focused and clear manner. Remember to integrate the statistical data in the article that discusses this topic. 1.Which explanation do you favor for the Flynn effect: that people are getting smarter or that people are merely getting more practice at the skills measured on IQ tests? Defend your opinion. 2.The rise in performance on IQ tests contrasts sharply with a steady decline in performance over the past few decades on many tests that measure factual knowledge, such as the SAT. Think of several possible ways to explain these contrasting results, and form an opinion as to the most likely explanation. 3.Results on IQ tests tend to differ among different ethnic groups. Some people have used this fact to argue that some ethnic groups tend to be intellectually superior to others. Can such an argument still be supported in light of the Flynn effect? Defend your opinion. 4.Discuss some of the common uses of JQ tests. Do you think that IQ tests should be used for these purposes? Does the Flynn effect alter your thoughts about the uses of IQ tests? Explain. Length: 1-2 pages not including title and reference pages
