Instruction 1. Read the section ‘Five Steps to Effective Training’ in Chapter 7 of our textbook (from pages 151 to 163)

Instruction 1. Read the section ‘Five Steps to Effective Training’ in Chapter 7 of our textbook (from pages 151 to 163). You first need to have a clear understanding of the five steps of effective training. 2. Review the lecture on How to make a claim that A is caused by B (or watch the video that I have provided you with this assignment). You also need to have a clear understanding of the contents in this lecture/video. 3. Let’s assume that you are a training manager of YT&T, a large cable TV provider in Wonderland. Recently, your company had a sharp increase in the number of customer complaint cases for the service provided by the customer representatives at the call center. The management feels that there is a problem with how the customer representatives react to customer calls. This is because a large number of customers who have filled out a customer experience survey indicated that they do not feel valued during the calls with customer representatives. As a result, the management has asked you to design and implement a customer service skills training program for customer representatives at the call center. 4. Design and implement a customer service skills training program for customer representatives at the call center utilizing the five steps outlined in the section ‘Five Steps to Effective Training’ in our textbook (from pages 151 to 163). However, skip Steps 1 and 4. Step 1 (Needs Assessment) has been already done through analyzing the customer experience survey. Through this, the management has concluded that the customer service skills training program needs to be implemented. Step 4 (Implementation) will be done by the instructor that you and the company have chosen. So, there is no need for you to worry about this step. Now, complete the following Steps. Step 2 (Develop Learning Objectives) Create a learning objective(s) for this training program. To do this, you may want to read the section ‘Develop Learning Objectives’ in our textbook (pages 153 and 154). For an example of a learning objective, see the section ‘2-2. Course Objectives’ of our syllabus. You can also review the learning objectives that are listed at the beginning of each chapter in our textbook for additional examples. The learning objectives do not have to be as specific as in the case of our syllabus. (15 points) Step 3 (Design the Training Program) Read the section ‘Design the Training Program’ in our textbook (from pages 154 to 158). Then, select the training method (or a mix of methods) that you think is the most appropriate in achieving the learning objective(s) that you have outlined in Step 2. Explain why you think the method that you have selected is the most appropriate. Also, discuss some disadvantages or Assignment 5: Instruction potential problems that you may face in utilizing the method that you have chosen. (15 points) Step 5 (Evaluate the Training) Read the section ‘Kirkpatrick’s Training Evaluation Model’ in our textbook (pages 160 to 161). Then, using this model, set up a plan to evaluate whether the training program has been successful in achieving the learning objective(s) that you have outlined in Step 2. However, set up a plan to evaluate only the Learning (Level 2) and Behavior (Level 3) outcomes within the Kirkpatrick’s Training Evaluation Model. Also, discuss the limitations of your methods in concluding that the training was successful in terms of Learning (Level 2) and Behavior (Level 3) utilizing the contents in the lecture/video How to make a claim that A is caused by B. For example, if the behavior of the customer representatives has been changed as intended after the training, can we really claim that the training program has caused this behavioral change? If not, why? (30 points) Important Notes 1. In writing your answers, NEVER copy-and-paste any part of the textbook or any other sources. Write the answers in your own words. If more than seven consecutive words are identical to a writing from another source (including the textbook, your past works, and any other sources), it will be considered as plagiarism, and you will receive a failing grade “F” in this course. You will also be referred to Students Affairs. 2. See Appendix for the grading rubric

Write 1page, plus cover sheet & reference page, and will answer the questions from the case. 

Write 1page, plus cover sheet & reference page, and will answer the questions from the case.

Give key facts of the case and your answers will relate to key concepts in the book. You will need to have in-text citations, APA format (6th ed), and substantiate your findings. I suppose, I think, I believe is not appropriate here.

Integrative Cases found in the text beginning on page 561 and listed below. Your case analysis should follow the model described below as well as address each questions for the specific cases. The responses to the specific question should be integrated to this model. Some questions may already apply to the model so specify how they correlate.

·Read the case thoroughly in 1-2 readings from Daft, R. L., (2016). Organization theory and design (12th ed.)United States: Cengage Publishing.

· Reread the case and begin your written analysis using the following format and/or headings: · Synopsis of the Situation: Write a brief synopsis that describes the background information about the case, an overview of the case.

· Key Issues: Define the key issues/factors and the roles of the Key Players. You should include only those issues that impact the identified problem. Additionally discuss the leadership strategy as noted in the assignment rubric.

· Define the Problem. Identify one key problem. While there may be several problems and a multitude of symptoms, attempt to identify one problem, the resolution of which would alleviate most of the symptoms found in the case. The problem can frequently be defined around one of the key factors of marketing, target market, environment, or marketing mix elements (product, price, promotion, or distribution).

· Alternative Solutions. Develop two or more alternative solutions to the defined problem. This should not be a laundry list of actions one could take to address every symptom, but alternative actions that could correct the problem at hand. Identify the pros and cons of implementing each alternative. This section is the recommendations & goals section as noted in the assignment rubric.

· Selected Solution to the Problem: Select one of the alternatives and explain why it would be best. Most of this work is already done if the alternative solutions clearly point out advantages and disadvantages to each. This section is the problem solving &decision making techniques as noted in the assignment rubric.

· Implementation/Recommendations: Identify how to implement the selected solution and what the expected results (positive and negative) might be. Your job is to identify an action, not put off action. Additionally, discuss the measuring outcomes as noted in the assignment rubric.

The Case Title and key question is:

CASE 6.0 – LEAN INITIATIVES AND GROWTH AT ORLANDO METERING COMPANY DISCUSSION QUESTIONS. Why does culture have to fit the organizational design.

General Guidelines:

1. Use APA Style including headings or labels. Using headings or labels throughout your written analysis will help your reader follow your analysis and recommendations. For example, if you are analyzing the weaknesses of the firm in the case, include the heading Weaknesses.

2. Spend more time on Alternatives than Synopsis of Situation. This is where you demonstrate your problem solving abilities.  Be sure you (a) identify alternatives, (b) evaluate each alternative, and (c) recommend the alternative you think is best.

3. Use topic sentences. You can help your reader more easily evaluate your analysis by putting the topic sentence first in each paragraph and following with statements directly supporting the topic sentence.

4. Be specific in your recommendations. Develop specific recommendations logically and be sure your recommendations are well defended by your analysis. Avoid using generalizations, clichés, and ambiguous statements. Remember that any number of answers are possible and so your professor is most concerned about how your reasoning led to your recommendations and how well you develop and support your ideas.

5. Do not overlook implementation. Many good analyses receive poor evaluations because they do not include a discussion of implementation. Your analysis will be much stronger when you discuss how your recommendation can be implemented. Include some of the specific actions needed to achieve the objectives you are proposing.

6. Specifically state your assumptions. Cases, like all real business situations, involve incomplete information. Therefore, it is important that you clearly state any assumptions you make in your analysis.

For context, please review this section of the textbook on the California Gold Rush

For context, please review this section of the textbook on the California Gold Rush (http://www.americanyawp.com/text/12-manifest-destiny/#V_Manifest_Destiny_and_the_Gold_Rush). You will find another page called “Three Men Attacked by Robbers.” This is a rare account of one incident during the California Gold Rush. Please be advised that the account will be confusing in places but I want to see what you all make of it. The assignment is an exercise in reading the source carefully and seeing what you can figure out. In your blog post of 200 words, describe what you think happened. In addition, you might want to write about what this reveals about California during the years of the Gold Rush. Do you note any factual discrepancies within the text? What are they? What do you find most surprising about the actions of the participants and why? What parts of the account are confusing to you?

Be very cautious. If you Google this event, you may find outside information that will actually lower your score. If I find you using details from outside of the text presented, you will lose points. If you write the full words and bring in details from the assigned reading, then you will receive the full 9 points for the post (remember the other 6 points are from your two replies). Just give it your best effort and you should earn the full points. I am very curious to see what you make of this source so this assignment is an experiment of sorts.

The Law of Higher Education, 5th Edition, Student Version – William A. Kaplin, Barbara A. Lee

Several students planned to wear green and white armbands to protest the US involvement in the current abduction of more than 300 girls by the terrorist organization, “Boko Haram” in Nigeria . They also plan to mourn the dead from the conflict of the terrorist organization which has been operating for 10 year now globally. Campus officials learned of the impending protest and quickly adopted a no-armband rule (even though they allowed students to wear other symbols). The students nonetheless wore the armbands to campus and engaged in four to six hours of non-violent but loud and rowdy protests. The university officials suspended them for violating university policy to keep the campus safe and avoid materially and substantially disrupting the campus environment . The students sued, claiming violation of their (Freedom of Expression) First Amendment rights.

Questions


1. Can university officials censor non-violent student speech without showing that the speech will cause a material and substantial disruption of school educational activities or collide with the rights of others. Why or why note? Please substantiate your response and cite case law where applicable.

2. As an administrator, what proactive steps and procedures can you take in order to promote student’s right to freedom of expression on campus and at the same time limit the possibility of a material disruption or acts of violence on your university’s campus.?

Why were employers and most labor unions reluctant to implement federal government’s guidelines

Why were employers and most labor unions reluctant to implement federal government’s guidelines

Bourdieu is perhaps best known for his concept of cultural capital. He first used it to explain children’s educational outcomes in 1960s France, arguing that class culture, such as its attitudes, values, and norms, confers to its members’ advantages in the education system. In “The Forms of Capital,” Bourdieu defines cultural capital and its relationship to economic and social capital. Answer the following questions after completing the reading and watching the lecture. The responses do not need to be in essay format, however, each response should be at least a paragraph in length.

Questions

1. Describe in your own words the differences between objectified, embodied, and institutionalized cultural capital.

2. In the conclusion of the essay, Bourdieu uses the example of the education system to illustrate how cultural capital can be utilized to reproduce inequality. How does this happen?

3. Bourdieu’s example of social reproduction in the education system is well known. What is an example of another institution in which cultural capital is employed to confer advantages to one class over another?

Your Response must have a minimum length of 100 words. Remember, your Response is your evaluation of whether the Commentary is a critical analysis of the selected primary sources. Reminder, the reply must cite one primary source document (not the ones in the classmate’s commentary), a media resource, or an Internet source to highlight a point.

QUESTION #3: Why were employers and most labor unions reluctant to implement federal government’s guidelines for gender equality and racial equality relating to equal pay, promotions, and job enrichment?

Employers and labor unions were reluctant to implement federal government’s guidelines for total equality within races and genders due to the underlying factor of trust not being wholeheartedly gained. Employers and labor unions went through the routine of satisfying the legal obligation to offer labor unions to all racial backgrounds, but never provided the follow through for long-term success for these employers. “It is interesting to note that many of our Urban League representatives feel that color bars are being maintained artificially by an entrenched official clique rather than by a representative sentiment of the union membership” (Johnson, 1935). These unions provided employees with the protocol to join a union, but re-routed their long-term positions into other employment backgrounds they carried no experience in.

Similarly to women and job enrichment, most employers knew they required an obligation to offer positions to women, but redirected these women’s responsibilities to feel utilized, while the employer was directly aware they weren’t as efficient as their male work force. “There’s no longer any question whether transit companies should hire women for jobs formerly held by men. The draft and manpower shortage has settled that point. The important things now are to select the most efficient women available and how to use them to the best advantage” (Sanders, 1943). Still, organizations portrayed all employees that were minorities as stereotypically of little use with an indirect application of workplace discrimination as the knowledge of federal government’s guidelines were in effect, allowing these companies to continue to implement their own versions of their older policies of inequality.
