  • Run a regression (Analyze->Regression->Linear Regression ; ‘Dependent’ = crime rate (CRS31); ‘Independents’ = homeownership rate (ECS445), the divorce rate (DMS506), and the personal bankruptcy rate (ECS105). 
  • Create and a scatterplot between crime rate (CRS31) (Y-axis) and homeownership rate (ECS445) (X-axis)
  • Write up the results of your multiple regression in APA format. Make sure you integrate the figure in your text. 
  • What type of tests did you use?
  • What variables did you examine?

Customer satisfaction.

Semester Project    – Write a Research Paper on  Customer satisfaction. Please find the attached research proposal document. Use at least ten articles and 15-20 pages – use the template. 

  • NO PDF FILES – all papers must be submitted in Microsoft Word
  • Times New Roman 12 Font
  • Double-Spacing
  • Avoid using “I” statements, APA does not allow first-person writing.
  • One Inch Margins
  • And more…using the 7th Edition as our guide.
  • Your reference list and your citations must match exactly – sources do not count if there is not a matching reference page credit and in-text citation.
  • No visuals in the papers themselves.   If need to help your write-up, then put in an Appendix.  Your written assignments must be all text.
  • No Abstract desired

In addition, I expect the following in your writing style this semester:

  • Use subject headers for all papers – your reader appreciates and expects that level or organization to your work!
  • Word count is computed from Introduction to Conclusion only.
  • No contractions & No abbreviations – if you are referring to the United States of America, write it out…do not write ‘US’ – this is not stellar academic writing.
  • This instructor prefers you credit all names the first time you use a source if multiple author’s names are present.  This is not an APA requirement, but an instructor requirement.  After that you may use et al.   When there are just two names, always write out both names.
  • Line spacing is double with 0 point spacing.
  • Only one citation credit allowed per sentence in this course. Choose the best source, this instructor validates all sources and I do not want two plus sources used per sentence.
  • Indent the first line of each new paragraph five spaces.  Use the templates as provided (download, save to your PC, and use as provided).
  • No extra blank lines inserted between sections – deliver a tight paper.
  • No bullet points, alphanumeric lists, or numbered list – write formally in full sentences / paragraphs. 
  • Numbers one through nine within your paper should be written out
  • Cover page and reference page required for ALL paper submissions
  • Never use all capital letters
  • Use authored references for your research to earn full points.  An authored source is simply one that is associated with a human(s) NAME.   For example, your textbook is an authored source.  The United States Census Bureau is not an authored source.  But it is fine to use as long as you ALSO use an authored reference source. 
  • Always include the full URL as to where you found your research online articles – never just the home page
  • Avoid wikis, blogs, tweets, videos, dictionaries, and encyclopedias as outside references – use Masters-level sources like the Journal of Marketing or the Journal of International Business – No wikis, prezis, slideshares, dictionaries, encyclopedias, videos, interviews, & podcasts allowed as references – only scholarly written sources from well-respected sources.
  • Word count is from Introduction to Conclusion.  SafeAssign must be under 25%

topic study materials.

Based on “Case Study: Fetal Abnormality” and the required topic study materials, write a 750-1,000-word reflection that answers the following questions:

  1. What is the Christian view of the nature of human persons, and which theory of moral status is it compatible with? How is this related to the intrinsic human value and dignity?
  2. Which theory or theories are being used by Jessica, Marco, Maria, and Dr. Wilson to determine the moral status of the fetus? What from the case study specifically leads you to believe that they hold the theory you selected?
  3. How does the theory determine or influence each of their recommendations for action?
  4. What theory do you agree with? Why? How would that theory determine or influence the recommendation for action?

Remember to support your responses with the topic study materials.

While APA style is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and documentation of sources should be presented using APA formatting guidelines, which can be found in the APA Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are required to submit this assignment to LopesWrite. Refer to the LopesWrite Technical Support articles for assistance.

Assignment: Research-Based Marketing Plan Initial Proposal – Pricing, Promotion, And Distribution Channels

Pricing, Promotion, and Distribution Channels

In this final section of the paper, you are moving closer to an action plan. You understand what is happening and what will happen in the target market in the next five years. You have completed extensive external analysis of the market and factors that impact it.

In this section of the paper you will analyze the dominant pricing, promotional, and distribution strategies of the most significant potential competitors. You will use that analysis to develop a pricing strategy, outline a promotional plan, and identify the best distribution channel(s) of the target market for JGJ’s new offering. This is the last step in the marketing plan and it will be the most detailed and tactical in terms of specifics for the new product offering. In short, this section will outline how you will compete against the entrenched competitors who will not welcome you and allow you to come in and take some of their customers and profit.

Upon successful completion of this discussion, you will be able to:

  • Determine pricing strategies, price setting methods, distribution channels, and key channel members.
  • Analyze the effectiveness of emerging promotional strategies.

Resources

Instructions

  1. Review the rubric to make sure you understand the criteria for earning your grade.
  2. Construct a proposal to JGJ Inc. of 1000 words (+/- 50 words) using at least four credible and objective sources not provided as resources in the course in your analysis, plus at least one source provided in the course reading list.
  3. Use the titles in the Market Analysis Report Template to create six sections for this part of the consultant’s report:

    https://brightspace.indwes.edu/content/enforced/143793-3SU2021MKTG-530-01BFL;MKTG-530-01CFL/Market%20Analysis%20Report%20Template.docx?_&d2lSessionVal=FwuEcCiYq0WSn7hJsBtlxrbsq&ou=85064&_&d2lSessionVal=FwuEcCiYq0WSn7hJsBtlxrbsq&ou=85064&_&d2lSessionVal=FwuEcCiYq0WSn7hJsBtlxrbsq&ou=85064&_&d2lSessionVal=S2XmqwLXaXRW6w5f1VqJmOY9N&ou=143793
    1. Analysis of Current Pricing Models in the Market
    2. Analysis of Current Promotional Models in the Market
    3. Analysis of Current Distribution Models in the Market
    4. Recommended Pricing Strategy for JGJ Inc.
    5. Recommended Promotional Strategy for JGJ Inc.
    6. Recommended Distribution Strategy for JGJ Inc.
  4. The first three sections require significant quantitative data and will be used to support the three recommendation sections. These analysis sections should provide a solid overview of existing competition with enough specifics from primary competitors to demonstrate a mastery of the market. You will not need to detail every competitor in the market; you should focus on those competitors which will be closest to JGJ Inc. in the positioning matrix and/or those who hold the largest market shares.
  5. You do not need to necessarily use a different strategy than the competition in any of the three recommendation sections, but your recommendations must provide a logical and substantially strong argument for why your set of tactics will be successful. Going head-to-head is very difficult so your combination of tactics must meet the standard that it has a high likelihood of success. You should be creative and use the most current methods and trends to establish differentiation for your target customers.
  6. Cite your work per current APA standards, however, indenting of the references is not required due to the discussion board format.  (See OCLS APA Writing Styles Guides)

    https://ocls.indwes.edu/style_guide.html
  7. Post your initial proposal into the discussion forum as a post, not as an attached file.
  8. Please note the relatively low point value of the initial report is not reflective of the time required or importance of this assignment. The assignment should be viewed as the total of the initial report posted and revised final report submitted and the combined total points for both steps. Further, your goal here is to provide your peer with a complete initial proposal so that you can receive valuable feedback to improve your revised final report.

Information Systems Infrastructure

Question 1

One might think that the Bible has nothing to say regarding business planning, but the opposite is true. In Luke 14:28, Jesus suggests, “For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it?” (English Standard Version). Indeed, Jesus said in Matthew 6:34 that we should consider planning in the short-term as well: “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” The two perspectives complement each other. The long-term is not ignored; we are just told not to worry ourselves. We should focus on both time frames as we make strategic short- and long-term plans, but we should avoid worrying. That comes from prayer, as Philippians 4:6 admonishes that we “not be anxious, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Think about it—we can place our concerns and worries on God, and he will provide.

1. Review the material above, and read Luke 14:28, Matthew 6:34, and Philippians 4:6.

2. Be sure to address the following prompts in your paper:

a) What cares or struggles are you currently experiencing? What steps can you take this week to give these cares and concerns to God?

b) What changes can you make in your professional life to help you continually release concerns and cares about work to God?

3. Your paper should be at least 250 words in length.

Question 2

1. Use your workplace or do internet research for a Fortune 1000 company as an example and respond to the following prompts and questions:

a) Identify the vision and mission of the organization you have done research on and describe how technology is providing support for meeting the organization’s goals.

b) What do you see as one weakness and one strength of how the company is using technology to support its goals?

c) What are two suggested strategies you would propose to enhance the company’s structure, so it is more responsive?

2. Your initial post should be at least 350 words and supported with credible outside references.

Question 3

1. In this final assignment, you will be adding your recommendations for improving the information system’s infrastructure that you researched and completed in the Workshop Two summary of your organization’s mission, goals, and strategies and the Workshop Four organizational SWOT analysis

2. This last phase of the final project will be your recommendations based upon the SWOT analysis you conducted in Workshop Four.

3. You should identify at least four improvements and provide a thorough explanation for each of your recommendations.

4. The total length of the paper should be 10–15 pages. You may use graphics or other features within your paper; however, these do not count toward the 10–15 pages total.

5. Make sure your paper is double-spaced and uses APA format. The paper should have a minimum of five references.
