You are the project manager for the Sweep Time software project. You have decided to use the beta distribution, or 3-point estimation, technique for this project. For the “phase 1 test” activity in days, the following estimates are available: O=5, P=10, M=6.

Address the following:

  1. Explain beta distribution, when it is used, and the benefits and shortcomings of the technique.
  2. What is the result of this estimate in the example?
  3. How does a skew from the mean/median figure relate to planning a project? That is, if your beta is 7.5 and your M=6, how do these relate?

Submission:

  • Write a 3 page paper addressing beta distribution. The length does not include the required title and references pages, and the appendix in which you show your calculations.
  • Support your paper with a minimum of two current scholarly sources from the CSU-Global Library, in addition to any course textbooks or lecture material.

Communication And Shared Medical Records

Patients put their trust in us as healthcare providers or administrators. Sometimes healthcare centers let them down—either directly or indirectly. In the case of Amy, the young child who passed away (see the example below), an opportunity was missed to implement a program that would allow hospitals to communicate and share medical records.

What are your thoughts on implementing a program within the United States that would allow hospitals to share information from hospital to hospital, giving hospitals up-to-date information on patients? Is it a good idea? Why, or why not? 

Baker, J. J., Baker, R. W., & Dworkin, N. R. (2018). Health care finance: Basic tools for nonfinancial managers (5th ed.). Burlington, MA: Jones & Bartlett Learning

Consider the following example: Amy is a 10-year-old girl who has a ventriculoatrial (VA) shunt to help drain cerebrospinal fluid. In pediatric patients, the shunts will often fail within a short amount of time (Hydrocephalus Association, 2017). Amy experienced complications following a recent shunt revision. Her local community hospital performed computed tomography (CT) scan to evaluate the state of her condition. She transferred to a larger, level one trauma center because she could not receive the required care at the smaller facility. She arrived at the receiving hospital in shock. The receiving physician was under the impression that the CT scan was unchanged/unremarkable and not a direct contributing factor to the episode of shock. Because of that assumption, the receiving physician did not look at the computer disk (CD) containing a copy of her recent CT scan just hours prior to her arrival (sent with the patient). Since the second-most-common complication of shunt systems is infection, the physician ordered the antibiotic shock therapy protocol (Hydrocephalus Association, 2017). After just a few hours, the patient died due to a failed revision surgery.

Individual Project

Your abilities in international management have been recognized, and your consulting assistance has been requested. The company Quasimoto Enterprises has been approached by a reputed Chinese firm that wants exclusive production and selling rights for one of its new high-tech products. The company has been looking for a strategic partner for the production of this product to reduce costs. Hence, Quasimoto Enterprises is very interested in exploring the possibility of developing relationships with this Chinese firm. This deal is very critical to growth of Quasimoto in the international market. Both parties are anxious and preparing for their first meeting in a month’s time to move this deal forward. This is the first time Quasimoto is doing business with China, and this is also the case with the Chinese firm.

What does Quasimoto Enterprises need to know about Chinese bargaining behaviors to strike the best possible deal with this company? What should the Chinese firm know about American bargaining behaviors to strike the best possible deal with your company?

In your small group, develop a strategic plan for the negotiation and conflict resolution for Quasimoto’s executive team for its first meeting with the Chinese. Also, develop a negotiation and conflict resolution plan for the Chinese firm for its first meeting with the Americans. Please note that because this is an important business deal for both companies, both of your plans should include the bargaining behaviors of both countries. Are there any similarities between their bargaining behaviors? Can they have a win-win deal?

APA format is mandatory (in text and in the reference section).

There are two main types of databases accessible in the library, through “FIND ARTICLES & BOOKS.” Keep in mind that the most popular databases are: ABI Inform Global, Academic Search Premier, and Business Source Premier. As a graduate student, you must steer away from inferior Web sites with anonymous writers, articles found on consultant Web sites, materials on sites like QuickMBA.com, MarketingProfs.com, etc. Dictionaries and Encyclopedias most often repeat the information from your text. Acceptable Internet resources include among others government sites (especially for statistics). You are not permitted to use any open-source Web site in this course.

Management

There  are two main questions to analyze. Use the concepts reviewed in the  first part of the class to answer the questions, i.e., management  theories, controlling strategies, management of teams among other  definitions, or include thoughts from any work experience you may have.

Please  pay special attention to the format of your report. Make sure that it  is not just the body with your answers. Include information relevant to  your document that makes it easy to review. For example, do not forget  to put a main title, your name, date the document is submitted, numbered  pages, and any other relevant information. For example, numbered pages  would help making reference to an idea you wrote. Also, please use the  APA format for any citation you make to support your answers or  comments. There is no minimum nor maximum answer length as long as you  feel you got all covered. I will grade the way you organize your paper.

For  your answers, use examples of the cases mentioned in the Groysberg  & Connolly article (2013), uploaded in Blackboard, and make  reference to them.

Extra bonus point questions for Exam 1

HSA525 2 ASSIGNMENT

Assignment 2: Assessing Financial Performance and Its Impact on Merger Acquisition   

Develop a financial plan for the next three years. Use the financial statements from your selected health care organizations that were the focus of the SWOT Analysis assignment and that you have been following in the e-activities throughout the quarter. Using the Annual Reports of both organizations, consider the financial ratio that analysts would use to evaluate the financial condition of each company. Speculate on the organizations’ ability to merge with their competitors.   

Write a six- to eight-page paper in which you:  

1. Use your ratio analysis to determine whether the profitability trends are favorable or unfavorable and explain your rationale.  

2. Suggest the key financial drivers that most likely will cause your health care organizations to merge. Provide support for your rationale.   

3. Assume that your organizations have merged. Determine the evaluation criteria that a financial analyst would use to evaluate the financial performance of the organization post-merger. Identify the determinants that the analyst would use to decide whether the merger generated favorable financial results for the organizations. Provide support for your evaluation.   

4. Predict the financial stability of the health care industry over the next three years. Provide support for your prediction.   

5. Use at least three quality, current (no more than four years old) academic resources. (Note: Wikipedia and other websites do not qualify as academic resources. Scholarly resources include national health professional journals, governmental websites, and corporate organizations.)   

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:  

· Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.  

· Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, your name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
