business management research paper

You have just attended a manager’s meeting about establishing self-directed, high-performing teams. The company is concerned because some of the managers are having success building self-directed, high-performing teams while others are not. A discussion occurred that identified the characteristics of the successful team building elements and compared them to those managers that have not been successful. This is a situation where those who are struggling need to learn from those who are doing well. The discussions included identifying what could be going wrong and what steps might be taken for success.

You have been asked to write a research report that summarizes the meeting and offers some recommendations that might be helpful to those managers who are struggling. Specifically, your report must include:

  • Identification of the difficulties the managers may be having in establishing self-directed, high-performing teams
  • Identification of the successful characteristic of establishing self-directed, high-performing teams
  • Recommendations for success
  • A designed plan that might help guide the struggling managers and improve negotiation and conflict resolution skills

Assignment Objectives:

  • Describe the various stages of team development
  • Apply methods to improve negotiation skills and manage serious confrontation

Analyzing -Research Paper

Background: According to Kirk (2016), typography will have a significant role in your visualizations. You have to be careful with your text, but you must also be concerned with how the text looks. This then leads to color and functional harmony. You must provide the balance of colors in your visualizations (Kirk, 2016).  The harmony of colors you select during design will impact many aspects of the overall visualization.

Assignment: Write a research paper that contains the following:

  • Discuss Typography and the importance of appearance of text
  • Discuss the following color harmonies: (Usage, Pros, and Cons)
  • Complementary colors
  • Analogous colors
  • Triadic colors

Congestive Heart Failure

Congestive Heart Failure

Diuretics play a prominent role in managing excessive fluids among patients suffering from chronic kidney and heart failure illnesses. However, their application can result in various adverse nephric and cardiac outcomes. This discussion focuses on determining factors that are necessary for the aged diuretic therapy on the CDK and CHF victims, the prescription processes, and how kidney illnesses impact CHF treatment as well as the medication to be provided.

The first factor when selecting a specific diuretic therapy is considering the acting nature of the diuretic. Great diuretics doubles the preventive control strength while the short-term ones last for a shorter period. For instance, the prolonged nature of chlorthalidone increases the prevention of hypertension and hypokalemia. The other important factor is checking on the disease severity. Patients experiencing severe conditions should be offered a loop or collaborated diuretics (Udani & Koyner, 2016).

The medical practitioner must give out clear guidelines on how the diuretics would prevent or manage the conditions. For instance, in the first factor, the practitioner should explain to the patient the strengths and the duration of the recommended diuretic takes to control the condition. While, in the latter, the practitioner should make the patient understand how the recommended cure inhibits the receptor inhibitors (Udani & Koyner, 2016).

Renal insufficiency leads to unfavorable cardiovascular results. Patients undergoing CHF medication may experience an extended treatment duration if affected by this disorder. This is because the disease causes fractures on the left ventricles and lowers the levels of serum creatine. In combating this condition, clinicians should adopt treatment mechanisms that aim at regulating the fluid overload by using diuretics such as, angiotensin which converts the enzyme inhibitors and carrying out dialysis to prevent the condition (Sarnak, 2017).

Here are four individuals telling you their stories of how they became unemployed. In a multi-paragraph essay, apply the theories of unemployment (cyclical unemployment, frictional unemployment, seasonal unemployment, structural unemployment) to explain the type of unemployment that each of these individuals is facing and explain which of these individuals qualifies for unemployment benefits:

1. Two months ago, Marcelle used to work full time in an automobile manufacturing firm. “The factory where I used to work has closed because our market contracted so much, and so I was laid off. This is happening to people all over the country-all you see in the papers is that economic growth has fallen and incomes across the country have fallen. I have been looking very hard for a new job, but have had no luck yet.”

2. Until last week, Dominic used to work full time as a hair-dresser in downtown Cincinnati. “I decided to quit my job, because I want to move to New York City.”

3.Until last month, Francine worked part time at a ski resort. “Well, it is summer now, and so the resort is closed. I will apply again in the winter when the snow is back. I am not interested in working until then.”

4.Two months ago, Beauvoir had been working full time as a secretary. “I was a good typist, but I don’t know how to use a computer. My boss wanted to upgrade the office to computers, and so I was replaced by someone who is computer-savvy. I have been looking for another job, but it appears that I need to learn some computer skills.”

Develop a response that includes examples and evidence to support your ideas, and which clearly communicates the required message to your audience. Organize your response in a clear and logical manner as appropriate for the genre of writing. Use well-structured sentences, audience-appropriate language, and correct conventions of standard American English.

The implementation of ACA

The implementation of ACA and the introduction of triple aim are forces that are influencing the healthcare delivery system in the United States (Marshall & Broome, 2017). Management of healthcare costs is one of the goals of the triple aim and can be a reason for managing the competing needs within the organization. Implementing cost containment has been the strategy of most organizations to maintain economic healthcare stability (Jones, Bae, Murry, & Hamilton, 2015). The competing needs of the workforce, resources, and patients may impact the development of policy. Most hospitals are operating under the business model of healthcare which is focusing on providing quality care with the least amount of costs to the organization. The value-based payment (VBP) is an initiative by CMS to incentivize hospitals and providers to invest in strategies that improve the quality of care and patient outcomes (Jones et al., 2015). In the case of adverse events within the hospitals, there will be a penalty and no payments to the hospitals. This penalty would affect the financial operation of the hospitals. This business model type of healthcare requires reductions in either workforce or resources and promotes standardized approaches that often have inflexible policies and regulations (Kelly & Porr, 2018). The result of these policies can frequently provide little room for tailoring and accommodating holistic patient care needs (Kelly & Porr, 2018).

Adoption of new technological innovations such as health IT can be a competing need that can temporarily impact nurse staffing issues. Investing in resources that can improve quality care requires a strategy such as reductions in the workforce to accommodate the adoption of EHR financially. The adoption of EHR, one which promotes meaningful use, can provide financial incentives to the organization (Marshall &  Broome, 2017). Although the adoption of EHR might seem to be a competing need within an organization, the effect of it can boost Medicare reimbursement. The other positive impact of health IT is an improvement in the performance of interdisciplinary communication, a decrease in adverse patient events and improved patient satisfaction (Hessels, Flynn, Cimiotti, Bakken, & Gershon, 2015). Depending on the quality of the technology and the leadership effort, the negative impact can also occur during the implementation process.  Organizational policies need to address the issues related to the implications of the competing needs between the adoption of EHR and the shortage of nurse staffing within an organization. A well designed EHR, one that is supportive of the nursing work environment, will improve patient care and improve staff satisfaction. Policies must promote a strong fundamental quality of care (Hessels et al., 2015), such as adequate staffing and resources to improve quality care and reduce costs. The organizational administration must implement training programs to the staff and professionals in the implementation of EHR to prevent negative impact and to meet the demands of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) and Affordable Care Act (ACA) (Hessels et al., 2015).  Meeting the provisions of ARRA and the ACA, which establish the VBP program, can enhance the financial capacity of an organization and will likely improve the nurse staffing issues. And as a result, it can achieve the quadruple aim in healthcare.

Impact On The Law On Patient Care Issues

  • Read the case study presented at the end of Chapter 8 (Guido, p. 150)
    • Is the patient correct in asserting that he has a right to know the names and status of individuals who will be performing this procedure?
    • Does the manner in which the student introduced herself and the two other team members have relevance in this case?
    • Was the informed consent deficient to the degree that there was a lack of informed consent by the patient?
    • How would you decide this case?
  • A patient is admitted to your surgical center for a breast biopsy under local anesthesia. The surgeon has previously informed the patient of the procedure, risks, alternatives, desired outcomes, and possible complications. You give the surgery permit form to the patient for her signature. She readily states that she knows about the procedure and has no additional questions; she signs the form with no hesitation. Her husband, who is visiting with her, says he is worried that something may be said during the procedure to alarm his wife. What do you do at this point? Do you alert the surgeon that informed consent has not been obtained? Do you request that the surgeon revisit the patient and reinstruct her about the surgery? Since the patient has already signed the form, is there anything more you should do?

Now consider the ethical issues that such a scenario raises. Which ethical principles is the husband in this example most portraying? Which ethical principles should guide the nurse in working with this patient and family member?

  • Jimmy Chang, a 20- year- old college student, is admitted to your institution for additional chemotherapy. Jimmy was diagnosed with leukemia 5 years earlier and has had several courses of chemotherapy. He is currently in an acute active phase of the disease, though he had enjoyed a 14- month remission phase prior to this admission. His parents, who accompany him to the hospital, are divided as to the benefits of additional chemotherapy. His mother is adamant that she will sign the informed consent form for this course of therapy, and his father is equally adamant that he will refuse to sign the informed consent form because “Jimmy has suffered enough.”

You are his primary nurse and must assist in somehow resolving this impasse. What do you do about the informed consent form? Who signs and why? Using the MORAL model, decide the best course of action for Jimmy from an ethical perspective rather than a legal perspective. Did you come to the same conclusion using both an ethical and a legal approach?
