Hot Spot And Advanture

This has two parts.

You will need access to the “Hot Spots” Discussion Forum where we collected information about apparel and textile sourcing partners in the world. 

Upon successful completion of this exercise, you will have completed Learning Objectives in Modules 10-13.This discussion  focuses on current events and applying what’s happening in the world today and how it might affect sourcing of textiles and apparel.

1.  Practical: Adventure! (20 points)  Recommended the you post by 7/2 so others can respond.

Assume you are ready for a global adventure and are seeking a job in which you could be employed at least part of the time in a foreign country.  You will be involved in textiles and apparel sourcing.  And it doesn’t matter if you know the language or not; you’ll learn it while you are there or they may speak English.

  • Which of the data presented in Tables 9.2, 10.2, 11.2 and 12.2 in your textbook would help you in deciding the countries you might like to consider? Select your top three statistics (now your criteria for selecting a country) from the tables.   State them in your posting.
  • Now, can you think of 2 additional kinds of information–anything from anywhere– you’d like to know about a country that are not included in the above tables?  Anything! That’s a total of 5 criteria you would use to help you decide which countries are best.
  • Select 3 countries; you may only choose from the Hot Spots in the World countries (below is the list).
  • Create a chart with the 5 criteria across the top and the three countries you chose down the left side of the chart.
  • Fill in the chart.  Find the information you don’t have.
  • Post by end of 7/2.

2.  Current Events:  this is the tricky part. (20 points)

  • Go look at the other charts created by students.
  • Select a student who does not already have a reply and whose chart interests you. Maybe there’s a country that sounds more interesting to you.  You can make comments on as many countries as you want, but be sure at least one  has all the requirements from immediately below.  Respond to someone’s response!
  • Select one of the countries posted by the student for an adventure and now look up what’s happening in that country by using the research in “Hot Spots” Discussion” Forum.
  • Reply to the post and In the reply, conclude with whether you think this country is a good or maybe not-so-good choice for an adventure–and why! Remember that people travel all over the world from DFW on business every day.  Think about what sourcing personnel care about:  currency, political stability, labor force, etc.
  • …and include links to 2-3 current news articles–include a 1 sentence summary about what’s happening supporting your conclusion. Do not post about the population increasing, or facts like that, look for what is currently happening in that nation.  You may use links in the Hot Spots or links that are more current.
  • Add any thoughts you have about what’s going or what you know!

Good work, good information and good thinking may result is a few bonus points!  Be brief, be bright, be done!

Time Series In Health Care

Pam is a healthcare administration leader for a large  network of hospitals and health service centers that is attempting to  predict future healthcare utilization at their centers over the next 5  years. She obtains data regarding patient use across the hospital  network and health service centers and projects forward over the next 5  years to determine which areas might experience continued growth. After  applying her time series model, she is able to demonstrate that, indeed,  the hospital network and health service centers will experience  significant growth. As she prepares to share her results and findings  with the board, she also considers advocating for the development of a  new regional health service center to fill one of the areas that will  experience the most growth according to her forecast projections.

As a current or future healthcare administration leader, you may be  asked to assess strategic planning and decision making using time series  analysis.

For this Discussion, review the resources for this week, and reflect  on time series models and forecasting. Think about how you might  implement these methods for healthcare administration practice.

By Day 3

Post a description of some variables that you might  evaluate using time series in your health services organization or one  with which you are familiar. Then, explain what types of models might be  most appropriate to measure, and analyze these variables. Be specific,  and provide examples.

Personal Leadership Portrait SafeAssign Submission

The health care environment is complex, requiring leadership that is  comprehensive and collaborative in the field. It is essential for  leaders to be well-versed in a range of areas (practice, research,  education) as a means of effective engagement with inter-professional  communities. Effective leaders have heightened awareness of self and  individual leadership styles, leading to professional growth, career  advancement, and the ability to develop leaders for the future across  the fields of practice (nursing, health administration, public health).

Your final assignment in your first course will bring together all  the aspects of leadership that you have examined and discussed over the  last nine weeks, as you analyze your own leadership qualities to create a  portrait of the effective health care professional and leader you  aspire to be.

Remember, in graduate work, the use of directly quoted material  should be limited as it is your understanding, interpretation, and  application of the literature combined with your experience that is  important.

Note: Because this assignment requires you to  develop a self-assessment, you may write using first-person voice.  However, it is important for your development as a practitioner-scholar  to recognize that writing in the first person is not usually acceptable  in academic papers, which are written in the third person. Consequently,  you should always carefully consider departing from this norm. If you  have any questions about academic writing style, please contact your  courseroom instructor, or post a question in the Ask Your Teaching  Assistant area of the NHS Learner Success Lab.
