Field Project Assignment: 5 Stages
Stage 1 A. Choose one of the following options 1. Single in-depth interview(s) with one person preferably off campus, a non-student * Minimum total of 1 ½ -2 hours * Minimum interview session: 30 minutes 2. Interviews with two or more people but performed one-at-a-time * Minimum total of 2 hours * Minimum length of any portion of an interview: 30 minutes B. Choose your topic:
Career Related: Interview people currently working in the field you intend to enter following graduation. You could choose to interview an entry level person and one or two people who have had more experience. You might want to know techniques for breaking into the field, what the job would entail on a day to day basis, trends, challenges, typical career paths, etc.
Problem Solving: Talk to counselors on/off campus to identify ways to approach solving a personal dilemma or challenge (e.g., whether or not to go to grad' school, study abroad, change majors, start a business, quit drinking, smoking), or check with a social worker or city official who deal with real-life daily problems that require workable solutions.
Class Related: Tie in the interviews you conduct for this class with another class project. You will still need to do the post analysis to conform to the expectations for this class, but at least the time interviewing as part of gathering material for your research will be doubly productive. In the past, for example, students have looked at assessing the experiences of hearing impaired students on campus, differing management styles of supervisors, and what court appointed special advocates (CASA) do.
Personal Interest: Do you have a topic about which you're just interested in finding out more information? One student interviewed a friend in prison to find out what it was…...

...Name: ONASHILE , ADEMOLA OLUTOSIN (K1001224) Course: RESEARCH METHODS ASSIGNMENT Assignment 1 The topic is the incessant labour turnover of staff in insurance companies in Nigeria using the Nigerian Insurance sector as the case study. The idea of the thesis project emanated from the business news the researcher often reads online in the Nigerian dailies as this spurred him to be interested in knowing why the Nigerian Insurance Sector is incessantly reducing in staff strength year in year out. Though, the he has had a little experience having worked a few months in the industry, but that is not enough to ascertain what the cause could be. Therefore, carrying out a research work on the frequent labour turnover in the Nigerian Insurance Companies and using the Nigerian Insurance Sector as a case study could be a perfect medium to discover what the causes are and how the posed challenges can be managed properly. Hence, professionals that had worked in the industry before and moved to other industries will be interrogated to derive facts and draw conclusions on what the industry can do to ameliorate this scourge of continuous labour turnover which is tantamount to affecting the level of productivity and generally bastardizing the image of the industry. Assignment 2 The research method that will be used is the qualitative means of research whereby the researcher will make use of voice recorder to get down the responses from a targeted group of the interviewed...

Can you describe those visits? Her: I have been following all my regular appointments. They’ve gotten frequent in these last couple weeks but I’ve always gotten good news so I’m happy.

Assignment 2: Report on Religious Field Research

...Assignment 2: Report on Religious Field Research Sage Smith REL 212 Monique Baucham March 11, 2012 I chose to research the Catholic religion since I know very little about the Catholicism except that it was my mother’s religion. I went to church very briefly but was too young to grasp what Catholicism was about and how a Catholic was taught to act and believe. When I was in high school, I briefly dated someone who was a very conservative Catholic and we talked about our beliefs. He informed me I could never be a ‘true’ Catholic because some of my personal beliefs went against the church’s teaching. However when I asked him if his views were based off personal beliefs, like mine, or if they were due to the teachings of his religion he couldn’t truly answer. That experience really turned me off to Catholicism. I felt religion wasn’t for me if that was what the church was teaching its ‘flock’; forcing them to believe what the church wants you to believe and installing within you the fear of sinning against or the threat of being removed from the church if your views are different. I’m not one who believes in following the teaching of a religion verbatim especially since most religions have not evolved with the changes of time and still hold strong to the ideals and beliefs that were prevalent hundreds of years ago. Before researching Catholicism I had many misconceptions regarding the Catholic religion. When I decided to research Catholicism I really......

...The materials used by Rexam are either new wood or recycled products. The coating material on the paper that allows it to receive the ink and not bleed is an inputted product. All of these materials and their quality affect the product. There are no indications that the quality of the materials is being measured, to ensure the plant is receiving high quality supplies. It is also clear that the plant does not measure their inputs, but solely focused on their outputs. The outputs to the plant include the paper products produced. The paper products could change from inkjet to laser paper. The proprietary inkjet paper however is exclusive to HP. Map the Process The following is the current process map representing the turnaround project at the Portland plant. First is the high level overview of the current process as you will see in figure 1.

Assignment 2 Project Motorcycle

...Assignment #2: “Project Motorcycles” Jesse Fontanez BUS 375 – Project Management Professor Lodge November 2, 2014 New, Improved, Faster, Motorcycle Project Plan The implementation stages of motorcycles larger than 1100 cc project is a true display of the defining moments that make a project a success or a failure. The implementation stage is defined as "motorcycle modifications being installed and made operational in a production environment. The phase is initiated after the motorcycles has been tested and accepted. This phase continues until the system is operating in production in accordance with the defined motorcycle requirements”. While all of the planning that takes place in preparation of the implementation phase is critical, I am of the opinion that the implementation itself is equally as important. When working through the process of defining the motorcycle and selecting the organizational personnel to create this motorcycle systems, the beginning stages become the most important part of the motorcycle project for this organization. A tremendous effort has to be exuded in planning and preparation for the motorcycle development and deployment. The start of the motorcycle implementation phase is indication that progress was being made and the motorcycles are well underway. Before analyzing the process of project planning in teams it is necessary to identify the differences between such terms as a group of people and a team...

Project Management Assignment

...Analyse the different project control and configuration management techniques and discuss the reasons why a particular technique was chosen for your project. There are several project control techniques that can be utilised during project execution so that potential problems can be identified and appropriate corrective action can be taken in a timely manner. This is very useful in analysing project performance and measuring regularly against the project management plan. One of the most commonly used project control techniques is Earned Value Management (EVM). It is a structured approach to planning, cost and performance measurement. The fundamental principle is that it integrates time, scope and cost objectives to provide a quantitative assessment of the present project status and its likely future performance. This method also highlights potential issues and can enable the Project Manager to make informed decisions to take corrective action(s). Before EVM can be effectively applied to projects, certain elements need to be in place first. ▪ Work Breakdown Structure / Organisation Breakdown Structures: The WBS and OBS define the work to be done on the project and who will do it. ▪ Baseline Plan / Budget: The time-phased budget for the project will provide the primary baseline against which progress and expenditure will be measured. ▪ Status Updates: Performance data relating to project costs and progress must be accurate and provided in a timely......

Bodies the Exhibition Field Assignment

...contract Hepatitis B by even touching someone else blood, sharing someone else cup or just being exposed to the same surface that an HB carrier was in contact with. One of the major groups that are at risk of contracting and spreading the infection are the health professional such as doctors, inters, dentists, surgeons and nurses. A dentist, for example, who is an Hepatitis B carrier has a chance of passing on the disease to a patient. Hospital administrations and other agencies immediately recognized the potential danger of the above at risk population. They wanted to “down play” the danger of the risk of infection to spear themselves lawsuits and to avoid public panic. Public panic has the potential of causing havoc in the professional field. Hence, it was falsely concluded that health care workers carriers were not a major source of infection. In order to find a solution to a problem one has to fully investigate and understand what is the source of the problem. Research efforts to study the relationship between the health care worker carrier and the transmission of the disease was highly opposed and dismissed by major physicians organizations. In addition, government policies encouraged voluntary testing with minimal intervention even when a patient is infected by Hepatitis B. Health care professionals made a decision to protect their profession by making Hepatitis B a “silent epidemic”. Most Americans were not aware of the epidemic and how easily it can be......

The art and science of project management has been used in many ways although it was not until the 20th century that businesses began to see the relevance and importance of this discipline. Its role in business began as external to the organisation, however in recent years more and more organisations have begun to use project management internally. Project management has become a vital part of many businesses and it is used in many different fields of study, from engineering, programming or IT development, research and development, product development, marketing etc. The aim of this assignment is to see how project management is defined, how it applies to the telecommunications business and how project managers and organisations can use project management to......

Religion Field Assignment

...Mr. Weaver Religion 101 9 April 2015 Assignment #2- Field Assignment For this assignment, I decided to visit Lexington Baptist Church. This experience was much different than anything I had previously experienced because as I stated in my previous essay regarding my religion and experiences, I have only ever gone to one church. I have not visited other churches other than a Catholic church, and it was very similar to my Lutheran services. The Baptist church I visited was Southern Baptist, and I have always wanted to sit in on one of their services. I decided to go on Easter because I could visit Lexington Baptist, and then go straight to my church and compare the similarities and differences. Going into this assignment, I was not sure if there were going to be enough differences, but there are quite a few. Since I went on Easter, the messages were the same, but the delivery was so unique that it made the whole message sound different. For example, the preacher at Lexington Baptist took the message of the stone in front of Jesus’ tomb, and related it to his congregation. He stated that, like Jesus, we all have stones blocking us in life. At my Lutheran service, the message was not related to us in our personally lives, but rather focused on how Jesus died for all of us and the story of what happened on Good Friday. While the basic messages were the same, the perspective that each denomination took were quite different. I also found it very interesting that......

Before we arrived at the park I met with as she had asked so that I may program her new smartphone. I programmed her phone and then we went on to walk. After completed our walk at around 7:00 p.m. we went on to Bible study. On Saturday, July 14th, 2012 10:00 a.m.-11:45 a.m. We met for breakfast at Denny’s. Mrs. Renee insisted on Denny’s because they gave a great senior discount! We ate breakfast as we talked about different things she has seen and encountered during her life. She explained that marriage was hard but by God grace she was blessed to have been married for many years. After breakfast we went to the Spa. On Wednesday July 25th, 2012 6:00-8:00 p.m We met for our normal walk at Mt. Trashmore before Bible study. After Bible study we went down the street to grab a bite to eat along with some other church members. I enjoyed listening to Mrs. Renee’s interpretation of the message. On Saturday, July 28th, 2012 9:00-12:00 p.m. We met at Mrs. Renee’s favorite breakfast restaurant Denny’s for breakfast prior to going to Macy’s and JC Penny’s for a little retail therapy.

Assignment 1: Financial Project

...Assignment 1: Financial Project Assignment 1: Financial Project Five years ago, you bought a house for $151,000.00 with a down payment of $30,000, which meant you took a loan for $121,000.00. Your interest rate was 5.75% fixed. You would like to pay more on your loan. You check your bank statement and find the following information: Escrow Payment: $211.13 Principle And Interest Payment: $706.12 Total Payment: $917.25 Current Loan Balance: $112,242.47 Explain how much additional money you would need to add to your monthly payment to pay off your loan in 20 years instead of 25 years. If you took 25 years to pay off your loan the monthly payment would be $761.22 per month. If it took 20 years to pay off your loan the monthly payments would be $849.52 per month. So if you wanted to pay off the loan in 20 years you would need to raise your total monthly payment by $88.30 per month. Explain whether or not it would be reasonable to do this if you currently meet your monthly expenses with less than $100.00 left over. Yes you would be able to meet your monthly expenses. Again, if the monthly payment is only $88.30 over your normal payment and you have less than $100.00 left over than you could make the additional monthly payment. But that would not leave much money left over after you made the additional monthly payment. It might be possible to pay the current balance off in 20 years if you refinanced the loan at a lower interest rate. The......
