Task 4
The Private Sector is usually composed of organisations that are privately owned and not part of the government. These normally include corporations both profit and non-profit. For example Tesco. Public Sector is usually composed of organisations that are owned and operated by the government for example Hammersmith Academy. Usually the aim of a public service is to provide services to the local community. Private sector aims are mostly to create a profit and provide the best services to their customers and sometimes local community.
Influence of Stakeholders.
The primary aim of Tesco is to make profit. Customers contribute to profit levels and turnover through buying products and services. Customers do not want to have to spend an excessive amount of money to buy products. So if the product is cheaper in one store, such as Tesco then they will shop at Tesco and this will also attract more customers. Two of Tesco’s corporate objectives are “Offering customers the best value for money and the most competitive prices” and “meeting the needs of customers by constantly seeking, and acting on, their opinions regarding innovation, product quality, choice, store facilities and service”. This shows to us that customers at Tesco are very much one of the biggest influencers in Tesco’s profits and objectives. The Managers at Tesco influence the business every day by the decisions they make on the Store. Managers are there to implement company policy and formulate strategy which affects the running and profit-making ability of a business. Tesco operate in local communities and that is where most of their profits. They help the local communities by offering jobs helping out on local donations and many more things. However, not all local communities would like Tesco to open around them as some stores will feel that their business would not be noticed and profits will go…...

Stakeholder Influences

...Stakeholder Influences HSM/270 October 4. 2012 Stakeholder Influences In the field of human services one of the most influential stakeholders when it comes to program planning and evaluation is the funding source. Often times the funding source has a specific set of requirements that the program and agency must meet in order to obtain or maintain funding. The program planning and evaluation process is greatly affected by this. The needs and expectations of the stakeholders influence program planning and evaluation because they must adhere to specific restrictions placed upon them by the IRS and other government agencies. The funding source usually wants to proposed program to have similar goals and objectives along with similar values. The program planning may be changed in order to line up with the values of the funding source. The Madison Children’s Hospital seeks to start a program which research is done to look into the issue of chronic illness in adolescents ages 8-21. The funding source for this program is the National Institute of Health Care. The National Institute of Health Care seeks to fund research to improve self-management and quality of life for children with chronic illness. The needs and expectations of the hospital are to address the concerns of a lack in self-management of chronic illness. The hospital is interested in researching the causes for the lack of self-management which is causing an increase in complications as well as a lack of......

Fht 4 Task 1

...Human Development & Learning FHT 4 601.2.1-02 During the last few decades, psychologists have put forth many theories regarding cognitive development, especially as it relates to education. Two that I feel align most with my own ideas of how children best learn are the theories of Jean Piaget and Lev S. Vygotsky. They both developed theories that have been accepted throughout the educational arena, and in fact are still taught in education classes to today. They strived to learn and understand the best way, the best age, and the best environment for children to develop their cognitive ability. Before we discuss their theories we first need to define cognitive development. The literal meaning of cognition is “knowing,” defined as the “mental act or process by which knowledge is acquired” (Mcleod, 2007), and development is defined as “orderly and lasting growth, adaptation, and change over the course of a lifetime” (Slavin, 2009, p30). To simplify cognitive development means the acquisition of knowledge that grows, and lasts throughout a life span. Before cognitive development can take place, there must be cognitive learning. Cognitive learning is the process of acquiring knowledge for processing. The acquired knowledge is processed by our brain into higher thinking skills in a, “a series of gradual, orderly changes by which mental processes become more complex and sophisticated.” That is cognitive development, (Slavin, 2009, p31). The first......

...Task 4 Sarah Phillips Willow Bend Hospital’s compliance does indeed have multiple deficiencies and is in need of review as many were updated in 2009 and 2010. All information on deficiencies would be found on the latest updated version of the Joint Commission Information Standards. This should be located within the Corporate Compliance/Risk Manager’s office. As this information is not currently available to this writer without a subscription and fee, I must use the information available to me. So expansion and explanation of policy details are limited. In 2010, the policy addressing terminology and abbreviations was integrated into the Information Management standards as elements of performance 2 and 3 under IM.02.02.0 by Joint Commission. The hospital administration or HIM administration should have a committee to ensure the terminology and abbreviations are updated and distributed to all clinical areas, are posted within the electronic record system, and performed within specific time frames. The policy for addressing backup of electronic information systems can be found in Standard IM.01.01.03. The policy for managing interruptions to information processes is located within this Standard. This standard should be in the HIM department’s policy as well as IT department. The Medical Records Manager and IT Manager should maintain communication as to backups, updates, and scheduled downtime. IT will ensure all hospital employees’ awareness of any......

Egt1 Task 4

...Sandra deMiranda EGT1 Task 4 When considering starting a business in Japan, there are several cultural differences which will have a great impact on the success of business. Communication – As Americans, male and female, we are used to freely express our opinion whether it be in a business setting or otherwise. In Japan, subtlety and body language is very much a way of life, and directness is considered rude. Americans are taught since childhood to make and maintain eye contact when in conversation. In Japan, prolonged eye contact makes the Japanese uncomfortable, and they will avert their eyes which might give Americans the impression that their Japanese counterpart is not being direct. The Japanese consider saying “no” rude and form of losing face for the other person, and they will avoid a direct negative response. They might nod, and say they will consider it when they mean “no”. Americans will not hesitate to say “No” if that is their intention. A business card is extremely important in first contact with Japanese business men. The business card is extended with both hands, while bowing and is to be treated by the American counterpart with great respect and reference. However, in American culture we tend to hardly look at the business card, and therefore this Japanese custom will take some getting used to. Collective Achievement vs Individual Achievement – Japan is a very collective society, and prides itself on the achievement of the group. Everyone will try to avoid......

...are essential because they serve as guidelines for providing and evaluating nursing care. They help to ensure high quality care and serve as criteria in legal questions whether adequate care is provided” (Craven & Hirnle, 2009, p. 42). Accountability for nursing practice can be demonstrated by providing quality of care, continuing education, research, team collaboration, and providing ethical care for client. For this client, advocacy can be demonstrated by being respectful, having a caring attitude, encouraging autonomy, providing community resources, and providing a safe environment. These are important for our client due to her recent loss of her support system, her leave of absence from her job, and her inability to perform daily tasks related to multiple sclerosis. Teaching In teaching the client to promote and maintain her health, an assessment of her learning needs, learning style, and availability of resources are taken into consideration. The healthcare provider provides health teaching and counseling in a quiet and positive environment, develops rapport with the client, and identifies current knowledge the client has on multiple sclerosis. According to Speros (2009), “an atmosphere of respect, sensitivity, and patience will allay feelings of anxiety, low self esteem, loss of control and depression, as these psychological conditions can all reduce motivation and incentive to learn” (p. 6). For the client, visual and auditory demonstrations were provided for......

Stakeholders Influence on Programs

...Stakeholder Influences on Programs Paper Hannah Jones June 8, 2014 HSM/270 Christine Small Stakeholders can be defined as anyone that has an interest in or may be affected by a program and its efforts. Stakeholders can be broken up into three groups, primary, secondary and key stakeholders (Community Tool Box, 2013). Primary stakeholders are those who are directly affected by the organization and its efforts. These are represented as beneficiaries or targets of the efforts. Secondary stakeholders are those who indirectly affected by the organization and its efforts.” These might include individuals and organizations that live with, are close to, or care for the people in question, and those that offer services directly to them” (Community Tool Box, 2013).This is similar to third party type people that may have to assist in dealing with clients that are involved in a program. Key stakeholders are those who directly influence the program. This could be staff, managers, funder, government officials, ect (Community Tool Box, 2013). Stakeholder identification could also be broken up into five other categories of Clients, funders/authorizers, managers/enablers, producers/partners, and community (Johnson, 2011). However one chooses to identify the stakeholders is not as important as learning how they can affect a program and how to involve them in a satisfactory way. Stakeholders will likely expect to be involved and be informed. Benefactors and funders will appreciate......

Let1 Task 4

...LET1 Task 4 Christopher Thomas, 215442 WGU Business Management Program A. In the given scenario, the company’s evaluation contains three known evaluation criteria: Friendliness, neatness of workspace, and attitude; and the manager is to rate the employee in these categories. While the complete evaluation form is not available, based on the known information, there are concerns present about the current form being used. First, from what is known, there is no evaluation criteria that relate to the engineer’s core/technical job responsibilities. The engineer is stated to be bright and detail-oriented in the scenario, he has suggested process changes that have resulted in significant savings to the company, and the criteria do not provide the opportunity to show this. While a certain level of attitude, co-worker interaction or-the-like should be measured for a well-rounded evaluation, these should not be the primary rating factors because they are the furthest removed from actual job performance. Next, the rating scale used appears to be clearly subjective and without any commentary or goals. This will leave a lack of context in rating categories for useful discussion when delivering the evaluation and could definitely lead to misunderstanding by the employee. This was also indicated that the last review session ending poorly and the engineer having a lack of confidence in the company’s review process. Lastly, it is apparent that the sole evaluation is based on the......

Evaluate the Influence Different Stakeholders Exert in One Organisation.

...Evaluate the influence different stakeholders exert in one organisation. To: Chairperson of Tesco From: Anas Hussain Dear Chairperson of Tesco I have written to you to because I am going to evaluate the influence different stakeholders exert in one organisation, in this case the organisation I have chosen is Tesco. Owners The first stakeholder I am going to evaluate is owners which are internal stakeholders. One of the owner’s jobs is to manage employees. If the owner employs too many employees then there wouldn’t enough money to pay them all. If the owner employs less employees than required then the business wouldn’t run properly because employees would be all over the place trying to do too many jobs at one time. Business owners set policies so employees and customers follow rules about how the business should be ran. Business owners also set objectives that the business should meet, for example, a business would want to achieve sales of £5 million in European markets in 2010. Business objectives can motivate the employees. It also enables the business to measure the progress towards to its stated aims. The most effective business objectives meet the following criteria: S – Specific objectives are aimed at what the business does, e.g. Tesco might have an objective of selling half of the whole of their current stock within three months, an objective specific to that business. M - Measurable – the business can put a value to the objective, e.g. £10,000 in sales......

Evaluate the Influence Different Stakeholders Exert in One Organisation

...Every organisation has stakeholders; these are groups or individual that affect or are affected by the business. The number of stakeholder of a business varies as does their importance and influence. The type of organisation and the product or services it supplies also determines its stakeholders than a family business; it is therefore much more influenced and affected by the action, aims and objective of its stakeholders. In this report I will evaluate the influence of three stakeholders; Employees, Suppliers and consumers on Coca-Cola. Employees: Employee are very influential stakeholders of Coca Cola and they are one of the most important for the running of the organisation. Coca Cola has around 146,200 worldwide employees who have a high impact o the organisation. Satisfaction and performance of employees fully depends on the way human resources are managed in a company. Employee’s main interests are salaries, wages and job satisfaction; all these influence the company’s staff turnover, industrial action and the quality of the products and/ or services. Coca Cola must considers a lot of factors when employing new staff and managing the existing staff.

The government create the education plan. This includes vocational qualifications, a levels, apprenticeships, NVQ’s and training courses. ASDA and the NHS The government’s choices on education and training has a very big impact on the ways that ASDA and the NHS operate and the level of skills in their businesses. This is to ensure that employees are being trained for new employment in areas that will help the economy. This political factor dictates the type of qualifications that are studied and which qualifications money is invested in. It also supports different types of training such as literacy and numeracy skills that can help train employees that are already working within ASDA and NHS. An important training course that the government regularly provide for free is first aid and health and safety. This impacts ASDA and NHS as this is a key skill for many employees to be educated on when working in modern careers and roles. This will impact on both government and employees within ASDA’s and NHS’s stakeholders. The government will need to fund for any new and updated training within the employees of these two organisations. This means a......
