WEEK 8 FINAL PAPER: DIAGNOSTIC ANALYSIS Purpose The purpose of this diagnostic analysis is to create an opportunity to use the ideas and concepts discussed in the course in the analysis of a real organizational situation. The situation may be drawn from your experiences, or if you are not working or do not have a frame of reference, then research an organization through the online library (www.greatplacetowork.com/). Your choice of the situation is important and will take considerable judgment and discretion in deciding whether it is feasible to use it for the purposes of the papers. Discretion and confidentiality are of utmost importance in this analysis. So, disguise the source of the case study (unless it is drawn from public record) through use of appropriate pseudonyms. Learning objectives of the Final Paper: 1. Identify an organizational situation for the purpose of analysis (the situation must be sufficiently complex to generate enough material to satisfy the requirements as outlined below) 2. Analyze how the images, concepts and theoretical frameworks help to make sense of the situation 3. Construct a case study that relates evidence to theory and provide an appropriate analysis and explanation of the situation described
Organizational Analysis in a Nutshell Organizational analysis is the ability to examine an organization/organizational situation so that its fundamental characteristics are made clear. It is not simply spotting problems and applying appropriate solutions. It asks the questions: What is going on in the situation that I am analyzing? How can I account for its characteristics and the way they are changing? How can I make sense of the situation and arrive at an interpretation that allows me to say something concrete about it? In a nutshell, organizational analysis involves a process of thinking about a situation,…...

Cells in the body get their energy from glucose; therefore it is important to regulate its metabolism in the human body. In the human body glucose is derived from the breakdown of carbohydrates ingested in the food we eat or the one stored in form of glycogen. It is also gotten from the synthesis of proteins. Excess glucose in the human body is converted into fats and glycogen and stored in the liver, muscles and adipose tissue. When the levels of glucose intake are not adequate to provide the energy needs breakdown of carbohydrates stores occurs in order to form glucose (Encyclopedia). Blood sugar measurements are done to determine glucose levels in human body and are carried out in hospitals and chemistry heath care laboratories. Diabetes mellitus is the most common disorder for carbohydrate metabolism and it is as a result of high levels of blood sugar in the body (Encyclopedia).

A Diagnostic Analysis of the Lima Tire Plant

...A Diagnostic Analysis of the Lima Tire Plant Sabrina D. Foster American Military University Abstract This paper will provide a diagnostic report of the Lima Tire Plant. There are many problems within this company, and without them being properly addressed the company will continue to lose employees and production will continue to drop. The main problems that I see within this company are high turnover of the line foremen due to production and morale, training within the company.

...Whether Aereo’s Transmissions to Individual Subscribers is “Public”? Strategic Issues and Problems According to the case, Hearst is appealing that its competitor Aereo poses a threat to over-the-air broadcast services by using contrived technology to free-ride on WCVB’s substantial investment in its copyrighted programming. At the first of glance, the argument appears to be somewhat convincing, but further reflection reveals that Hearst’s appealing is not consolidating as it stands. There is no solid evidence that can proof the current strategy of Aereo using is unlawfully distributing its signal. Evaluation and Analysis The essence of the conflict between Aereo and Hearst is whether Aereo infringes copyright by publicly performing television shows without a license. Hearst sued that Aereo retransmits performances of copyrighted programs to members of the public through internet and mobile device streaming which infringes Hearst’s copyrighted programming. Consequently, Hearst will be deprived of existing and potential revenue streams from advertising and authorized retransmissions. On the other hand, Aereo argued that its streams are not “public” performance, because Aereo captures the content from the airwaves through thousands of tiny antennas in local warehouse. In addition, Aereo doesn’t transmit anything but it is instead their subscribers who are doing it. Therefore the transmissions are not public performances and so do not infringe Hearst’s......

Self Diagnostic

...Self-Diagnostic Essay Assignment Self-Diagnostic Essay Assignment I was told that the truth and only the truth will set you free and I am far from a J.K. Rowling or a William Shakespeare when it comes to writing. If the Olympics had writing as an event and I was for some odd reason competing in that event. My country will be highly disappointed with my efforts on winning. I have more weaknesses then strengths when it comes to writing, that is why I decided to take this course so I can enhance my writing abilities to reach my goals this semester. One word to describe my health as a writer will be obese. I consider my health as a writer to be obese just for the simple fact that I’m so lazy when it comes to writing. Procrastination is like a permanent disease when I know I have a paper due. It will take me two to three days to start a paper. I have a hard time figuring out the words to express the base of my topic. To be honest it took me my whole weekend trying to get an idea on how I was going to write this essay. My brain will sit there in a daze trying to figure out what to write about then I get writers block. I’m a simple guy so when I have a paper that I need to get done I will try my best not to think or write using simple minded words because I stress so much on what my teacher or professor might think about my writing. Therefore that whole stress factor on writing makes me insecure on my writing abilities. I have never attended any writing groups. The idea...

Academic Diagnostic

...Academic Diagnostic ​During the enrollment process I completed the academic diagnostic test that tested current writing and reading skills. It has been about ten years since I last completed any test. My anxiety level due to the testing experience on a scale 1-5, 5 being the highest, was 4. My anxiety level being as high as it was, was not only due to the amount of time that I have been out of school, even though that played a major factor, but also because I have never done very well taking any test, whether I study or not. During tests, I get panic-stricken and freeze up, fearful of answering wrong and receiving a discouraging grade. It usually doesn’t matter if the test is just a knowledge test or a test that I studied for, or how long I studied for it; I still tend to get stressed, especially if the answer options are multiple choices. I have always done better answering questions that are given by explanation from memory, like writing a paragraph or answering in my own words. Choosing from multiple choices, I read too much into the test questions and tend to over think the answers, second and third guessing my first. Furthermore, my mind goes blank and anything that I know or studied, dematerialize. Once the test is over and I’ve had the chance to review the questions that were on the test and the answers that I gave, I feel foolish and upset with myself, particularly if I didn’t do well, because I know that I could have done better if I didn’t get......

Diagnostic Deception

...Diagnostic Deception In the past 10 years, the United States has been experiencing a medical epidemic of frightening proportion, taking place primarily in children. Cases of a psychiatric deficiency known as Attention Deficit Disorder, or “ADD,” have been popping up in young kids and teenagers all over the country. What’s causing this? The American Psychiatric Association, often referred to as the “APA,” claims that the disorder has always been this prevalent, but it was only recently discovered, hence the increasing number of diagnoses, but there seems to be more to this “disorder” than meets the eye. As the number of cases continues to grow, many believe that the number of people with ADD is actually unchanging, and is in fact, zero. While the APA would like you to think otherwise, ADD and ADHD are fictitious disorders. The cause for question in this conversation of the reality of Attention Deficit Disorder has many aspects. Of them, are the facts that ADD and ADHD are only recognized as psychiatric disorders in the United States of America, the suspicious timing of the entrance of these disorders into the APA’s psychiatric journal: the DSM, and the pharmaceutical industry’s role in treatment. These factors, some big, some small, build the often criticized argument against the authenticity of ADD and ADHD as mental disorders. The United States has been home to many unique and wonderful things, but rarely is any one country the sole victim of a disease, let alone......

Sarmiento 2009 – 26175 BA Communication Research 25 Nov 2011 Paper 1: Diagnostic Comm130-FRU Coke Green: The Drink That Isn’t This year saw a noisier ground for the Corporate Social Responsibility as the two legislative chambers both filed a bill institutionalizing it. Corporate Social Responsibility, as defined by the World Bank, is “the commitment of business to contribute to sustainable economic development, working with employees, their families, the local community, and society at large to improve quality of life, in ways that are both good for business and good for development.” (Petkoksi & Twose, 2003) House Bill 4575 or the “Corporate Social Responsibility Act of 2011” advanced to the final reading and had finally been approved in June, while the “Act of Institutionalizing Corporate Social Responsibility Among Large Tax Payers And Providing Incentives Therefor,” Senate Bill 1239, still finds no space of getting across the Higher House. The different fate these two bills have had parallels to their dissimilar directives. In the House Bill 4575, CSR is highly encouraged among all business enterprise, big and small alike. In the said bill, recognitions will be awarded to businesses that have outstandingly advanced CSR initiatives. Assuming a heavier, thus more disputable, take on CSR, on the other hand, the Senate Bill 1239 mandates CSR only among large tax payers. While said section seems the be......
