Human Resources Metrics and Dashboard DevelopmentOverview

For this assignment, you are the newest HR business partner in a large corporation and you have been given the task of leading the creation and deployment of an HR dashboard. Your supervisor, one of several directors reporting to the vice president of HR, has told the VP that you are an HRM MS Capella graduate and have completed coursework that supports HRM dashboards.

You are concerned about coordinating this task, collaborating with other areas in corporate headquarters, and gaining consensus. You already suspect it will be difficult to get some of the data you will need because that information is not controlled by HR. You will have to persuade several groups of directors (finance, marketing, operations, sales, and information services) to give you access to their data. You will also be coordinating with the benefits, compensation, and human resources information system (HRIS) areas within HR.

Your director has asked you to develop the initial concept of what the dashboard will contain and what it will look like. She also wants you to review other dashboards to give her an idea how yours might draw from the better features of the ones you review. As the content expert, you have been assigned two other people, from different departments, to work with you. One member is from the finance team and is an expert at data management. The other member is a website developer and is strong at coding and building dashboards.

Assignment Description

The dashboard needs to provide information about the company’s employees, but not too much information; you still have to think about protecting privacy. Your boss wants the dashboard to contain the following information about each of the company’s employees:

Hire date.Job level.Length of time at current pay level (but not the amount of pay).Education level.Diversity category.Leadership development program participation (yes or no).

Your boss also wants to know the age range of each employee, but to protect privacy, you will need to represent age as a generational cohort, based on your research.

Assignment RequirementsWritten communication: Demonstrate graduate-level writing skills through accurate communication of thoughts that convey the overall goals of the analysis and do not detract from the message.References: Support your analysis with at least two academic, scholarly, or professional resources from the Capella University Library.Format: Resources and citations are formatted according to current APA style.Length: 10 PowerPoint slides, not including the references list.

As you have gone through Unit II you have been introduced to a wonderfully complex cast of characters

As you have gone through Unit II you have been introduced to a wonderfully complex cast of characters that are bestowed with this larger than life title “Founding Father.” We in the United States have idolized these figures since the American Revolution and one of the primary things I hope you would learn from this Unit is that they were human beings with as many character flaws as amazing talents. I hope you also recognize that the role of Founder was not simply named Washington, Jefferson, and Franklin, but included a very large number of other individuals (with names like Madison, Hamilton, Adams, and Jay) and was certainly not exclusively the domain of men. For this discussion, I would like for you to address the following questions in your discussion board posting:
Your responses should be at least one (1) full paragraph in length for EACH of the following three questions and include specific details/examples to support your arguments.
1) Who was the single most interesting “Founding Father” for you to learn about and why?
2) What made our “Founding Fathers” collectively so unique and what characteristics made them so “human”?
3) Who was the most interesting “Founding Mother(s)” for you to learn about? Why is learning the role of colonial women and other minority groups in the Revolution important to understanding the full story of the founding of the United States of America?

Discussion Board Response Prompt: Once you have posted to the Unit II Discussion Board, please select at least one other student’s post to respond. In a minimum length response of at least one full paragraph, please suggest additional historical details/examples related to their Question #2 response that they did not include in their original post but should consider adding to their argumentation. Include why you believe those are essential details to include.

When briefing a case, read the case through quickly once; then read the case again concentrating on the six elements of a brief:

When briefing a case, read the case through quickly once; then read the case again concentrating on the six elements of a brief: 1. FACTS 1. PROCEDURAL HISTORY 2. ISSUE 3. HOLDING 4. REASONING 5. JUDGMENT Finally, read the case a third time, and as you do, write notes on the various elements of the brief. When you have finished your third reading, begin to write. out your brief starting with the case heading – – JONES v. SMITH Supreme Court of Texas (1987) – – and following with the six elements of the brief. Refer back to the case as you work to make certain that you are not missing anything.1 The elements of the brief should be dealt with as follows: FACTS: Set out the key relevant facts of the case. These are the facts that were considered important to the court writing the opinion in arriving at its decision. Do not list facts which the court did not need or consider in reaching its decision. (Sometimes you will want to include factual allegations of one or both parties either in the Facts or in the Procedural History depending on the way that they are treated in the case.) When youfirst are learning to brief cases, it will likelytake more than three readings of the case before you are ready to brief it. 1 HANDOUT 01 On Briefing a Case Created 20 August 2018; Last Revised 18 August 2019 Page 1 of 2 PROCEDURAL HISTORY: Identify the party who filed suit (Plaintiff) and those who were sued (Defendant(s) ). Tell how the case got into the trial court (eg., an action for breach of contract was filed); the disposition of the case inthe trial court (eg., Defendant’smotionfor summaryjudgmentgranted);and,thehistoryofwho appealedtowhat court and ultimately what court is rendering the opinion that you are briefing and what was the year of the opinion. ISSUE: This is the part of the brief which usually gives students the most trouble initially. This is the key question (or questions) of law thatthe court had to answer in order to decide the case. This will be a mixed question involving both legal principals ·and the facts of the individual case. If the question were to be answered bya statement it would result in a principal of law that could be applied to future cases involving similar facts: ALWAYS START YOUR ISSUE WITH THE WORD – -“WHETHER.” Using the word “whether” forces you to frame your question in a neutral format. [Whether a person who fails to repudiate an offer and silently accepts the benefits of the offer will be bound to the contract?] HOLDING: For purposes of this course, simply change the wording of your. ISSUE into a statement that constitutes a rule which can be applied to other cases .with – the same or similar fact·s [A person who fails to repudiate an offer and silently accepts the benefits of the offer will be bound to the contract]. Initially, it may be easier to write your holding and then formulate your issue. Another way of understanding the HOLDING is that it is the court’s answer to the question contained in the ISSUE. REASONING: This is the logical argument thatthe courtpresents toshowwhy it arrived at the judgment that it rendered. This is the step-by-step logical process which moves from the facts of the particular case; ties in legal precedent; and, arrives at a decision. For the beginner, it is usually easier to write out the court’s reasoning before you try to formulate the issue or holding. JUDGMENT: This is the decision of the court that has rendered the opinion that you are briefing. Often it will be nothing more than “Affirmed” or “Reversed and Remanded.” Occasionally the holding will be more complicated. Be sure you understand what the court was called upon to decide and how it was decided.

It has continued to survive despite multiple political attempts to discredit and dismantle it. Americans indicate health care as their number one concern. Support your position, remembering to maintain an academic focus on the issues.

Math 1293 Mathematical Modelling and Decision Analysis – Assignment 4

Math 1293 Mathematical Modelling and Decision Analysis – Assignment 4 We have so far seen many applications of decision trees in our course discussions. This assignment aims to give you an opportunity to use your learnings in a practical context. You are expected to identify and solve a practical problem using a decision tree. This might be related to your work, personal life, or something that you are passionate about. There clearly are no boundaries to where you can make use of these tools so there are no rules about the choice of your problem. If you have issues accessing/collecting/using real data, you can use randomised real data, or generate your own problem instances to solve. We will assess you on the choice of problem to make sure that you put good effort into identifying an interesting problem rather than using a textbook example. As a part of this assignment, you are expected to i) describe your problem in detail, and explain your motivation in choosing this particular problem ii) model your problem using Analytic Solver Platform in Excel, using Silver decisions online, or any other tool available to you. iii) discuss your results in terms of their meaning The following rubric will be used to assess your assignment; Not acceptable (1) Needs Improvement (5) Meets Expectations (8) Exceptional (10) Problem choice (10%) The choice of problem is not suitable for this assignment. Decision tree does not fit well to the requirements of the problem at hand. A better problem might have been chosen. The problem chosen might be too simple to show the mastery in modelling and implementation. The problem choice meets expectations. The problem chosen is all right for the purposes of this assignment but it is not very original and feels like a textbook question. A really good choice of problem. A very original problem which allows you to demonstrate your modelling and implementation skills to their full extent. Problem description (10%) The problem is not described clearly. The problem could have been explained more clearly. The model is explained properly. The model is explained exceptionally well. Assignment 4 https://rmit.instructure.com/courses/49449/assignments/360817 1 of 3 13/10/19, 10:22 am The parameters, and requirements are not presented clearly. Key information regarding the problem is missing. There is nothing missing in the description but it might have included a higher level of detail to better explain the problem. Everything is very clear thanks to the complete and detailed description. Model & Software Implementation (60%) The model implementation using software has major issues. The computer model does not work or give meaningful answers. The model implementation using software has minor issues. The computer model may be producing results that are not completely correct but are relatively close. The model implementation using software does not have any issues and return the right answers. The implementation might have been better in terms of the layout and presentation. The model implementation using software is exceptionally good. One can easily understand the model implementation thanks to appropriate use of colours, texts, and layout. Analysis & interpretation of results (20%) The analysis of results is not sufficient. Key analysis regarding various inputs and outputs is missing. The analysis of results could have been more detailed. There is very limited discussion of the results, and some key discussion of inputs and output is missing. The analysis of results meets the expectations. There is good discussion of results but the analysis is not complete and missing a key discussion regarding one of the outputs. The analysis of results are exceptionally well. The analysis/ interpretation is complete and covers all results. A report consisting of at most 3 A4 pages saved as a Word document, and a separate Excel file including your model and results are expected to be submitted online. You need to submit the report using Turnitin and the Excel file (optional if you are using an online tool) separately using the assessment submission tool under our Blackboard course shell by 27th October 2019 Assignment 4 https://rmit.instructure.com/courses/49449/assignments/360817 2 of 3 13/10/19, 10:22 am This tool needs to be loaded in a new browser window 11:59pm. Note that you will only be given a single attempt to complete these tasks.

The goal of this assignment is to “represent” a problem in a creative representation.

The goal of this assignment is to “represent” a problem in a creative representation. Focus on a particular facet of your problem that you think is the most interesting. The purpose of this assignment is for you to “think outside” the normal academic student “box” and create a representation that is “different” and creative. The final product of this assignment will be something that will RUN BY ITSELF on a computer and will be between 5 and 10 minutes, being (NO LONGER) than 10 minutes. In addition, it should have BOTH audio and visual aspects, in that you may show pictures, videos, and text on the screen but you should ALSO have audio explaining what the viewer is looking at or what aspect of your problem you are depicting. You should have BOTH instructional type of information (i.e., telling the viewer information and facts) as well as depictions of examples (i.e., a video of someone engaging in the behavior of your problem). The following are a wide range of tools that are primarily freeware. But do not feel limited to what is here. You will likely have to use MORE THAN ONE to do a good job on this assignment.

Signature Assignment: Information Literacy, Introduced level In this assignment, your information literacy skills will be assessed

Signature Assignment: Information Literacy, Introduced level In this assignment, your information literacy skills will be assessed. The information literacy rubric will be useful for this purpose. In the course MGT407, information literacy skills were assessed at the “introduced” level. In MGT411, they will be assessed at the “reinforced” level. Finally, in MGT491 your information literacy skills will be assessed at the “emphasized” level. The grading rubric for information literacy at the undergraduate level has been developed to measure student success in meeting the MGT411 Case 1 expectations. Rubrics for the other two courses are included in their respective assignments. Review the required background readings for this Module, paying special attention to the topics of job evaluation, market pricing, and pay surveys. Scenario: You are an HR professional in your private-sector organization. When your physical retail chain organization merged two years ago with a firm that specializes in online apparel retailing, your company had to hire 150 employees to keep up with growth. This brought your employee count to 250. Up until the merger, your company paid top market rate, but once the merger took place the company adopted the merging company’s plan where pay was based 20% below market value. The base pay plan now in place is ineffective for the type of company yours has become, where 65-70% of your sales are online. What role should job evaluation, market pricing, and pay survey data play in your efforts to develop a new base pay plan for your workforce? Your boss has asked you to come up with at least six sources useful for the top managers in your organization to learn about these processes. Case Assignment In this assignment you will incorporate the most effective sources of information possible, giving special attention to the quality of sources utilized for the purpose intended. Find at least two valid sources of information for each of the three topics listed below. At least two of your six sources should NOT be listed in Module 1. Those two resources should either come from the Trident library or from other sources ofpeer-reviewed academic journals. Analyze both references for each category and select the one from each category that you think is the most appropriate reference for this assignment. In the end you will have three references to create this presentation for. The three categories are: 1. Job Evaluation: A formal, systematic means to identify the relative worth of jobs within your firm. 2. Market Pricing: Using market data to identify the relative value of jobs based on what other employers pay for similar jobs. 3. Pay Surveys: Collection of data on compensation rates for workers performing similar jobs in other organizations. Create a PowerPoint presentation of at least 13 slides (representing the topics a, b, c, and d below and a cover slide) for each of the three sources you identified above. Discuss: 1. How the term specifically relates to the concept of total rewards, 2. The criteria you applied to determine that each source was appropriate to educate your company managers. 3. Why each source was chosen (relevance of the info), and 4. Any ethical or legal issues that should be considered. Workers today want to see no more than 5 words and a picture on each slide. This means that all those words you want to put on the slides actually go onto the notes pages. (Suggestion: Change the four questions to short bullet points, such as Criteria for question b.). In addition, workers want to see pictures of people, and preferably pictures of the company’s employees, not clip art. This shows potential job candidates that the company cares about its employees. If you put your completely formatted references on the slides, there is no need to have a reference list slide. Citation and reference style instructions are available at https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/10/. Also see Trident University’s Student Guide to Writing a High-Quality Academic Paper. You will find the following useful as you critique sources: Cornell University. (2015). Critically analyzing information sources: Critical appraisal and analysis. Retrieved from http://olinuris.library.cornell.edu/ref/research/skill26.htm Cornell University. (2014). Evaluating Web sites: Criteria and tools. Retrieved from http://olinuris.library.cornell.edu/ref/research/webeval.html SLP Assignment Expectations The grading rubric for information literacy at the undergraduate level has been developed to measure student success in meeting the MGT411 Case 1 expectations related to information literacy. Your submission should be 13 slides and will be assessed on: ● Determine the extent of information needed ● Access the needed information ● Evaluate information and its sources critically ● Use information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose ● Access and use information ethically and legally ● Timeliness

Read the warm up article titled “What Made Art Valuable, Then and Now” and then respond to the prompt questions below

Read the warm up article titled “What Made Art Valuable, Then and Now” and then respond to the prompt questions below.

Respond to the following, numbering your response:
A commissioned artwork refers to an artwork created by an artist at the request of another person or organization. This person or organization thus becomes the patron or commissioner of the artwork. During the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, wealthy patrons often paid artists to create specific artworks. These patrons became a driving force in the world of art, commissioning many of the important artworks we study from these time periods.

1. Find an example of a commissioned artwork from chapter 7, 10, 11, 12, or 13. Briefly state who commissioned the artwork you chose, the artist, the artwork’s date and its style/period. (Hint: Using the search function, search for the keyword “commissioned” in your eBook. Ensure that you will be able to answer all prompt questions using the work you choose.)

2. What specific purpose did the patron/commissioner intend this object or image to serve? Is the patron or commissioner’s identity represented or alluded to in the artwork? If so, in what way?

3. What types of images are commissioned in today’s society? And what are their functions?

Write an original post in your own words addressing all aspects of the discussion prompt.

Write 150-500 words (excluding citation information).

Directly address and fully develop all aspects of the prompt.

Cite at least one image from the eBook Art: A Brief History, as an example in your post. Directly discuss the cited image to support your comments. Include the image’s page number, name of artist, and title of the work in your posting.
