DISCUSSION 1
“Just-in-Time (JIT)” Please respond to the following:

Develop three (3) examples that illustrate how a manufacturing company or a service company of your choice uses JIT, and then determine three to four (3-4) benefits of JIT for that particular organization. Discuss how the JIT concept differs between manufacturing and service companies. Provide specific examples to support your rationale. 
DISCUSSION 2
“Market Structures and Cost Management” Please respond to the following:

From the scenario for Katrina’s Candies, determine the appropriate type of market structure for the situation in question. Cite at least four (4) defining characteristics that have helped you reach this decision regarding the appropriateness of the chosen structure.
Imagine that you are a manager of a chemical company. An accident has occurred in which chemicals leaked into the ground water nearby. The community is unaware of the accident. Compare the primary costs involved in cleaning up the water immediately (and thus confessing) versus hiding your culpability now and possibly paying more in the future. Predict the impact on profitability in both situations.

Video 2:  Declaration of Independence
The video related to this question is America the Story of US: Revolution.  The original video is 45 minutes in length, but instead of the entire video I have found three key parts of it.  The three parts are “Declaration of Independence,” “Valley Forge and Small Pox,” and “American Revolution.”  These three videos total about 17 minutes.  I encourage you to view other videos that you might find on Youtube or other sites.  
Question
Describe and explain why the American Patriots were successful in winning the American Revolution.  Include in your response battle tactics, specific battles, people involved, etc.  
What I want you to describe in your answer is why the American Patriots were victorious against the world’s superpower of the time…Great Britain.  The French did not accomplish this or the Spanish, but the American Patriots did…why??

Unit 5 Discussion 2 – To Recruit or to Train?
* Consider the organization you are using for your final project.
* Decide whether it is more efficient and effective to hire on new skills or to send current staff to training to acquire these new needed skills. 
* Explain your analysis in detail and support your position with appropriately cited references to the readings and other relevant literature.

 
Unit 5 Study 1- Readings
Use your Public Personnel Management text to complete the following:
• Read Chapter 5, “Defining and Organizing Work.” The text will explore the topic of job descriptions from the viewpoint of different groups, such as elected officials and employees, and the role of the job description in the organization in helping the employee advance.

OBJECTIVES
To successfully complete this learning unit, you will be expected to:
1. Use existing theory bases to explain the requirements of the job description in maintaining progress within the organization.
2. Discuss the function of the job description and its impact on operations within a public setting.
3. Demonstrate the ability to create more efficient personnel management practices by explaining the function of the job description within a public setting.

INTRODUCTION – Unit 5 – Job Design and Skills Inventories
In this unit, you will take up the concept of the job description. Job descriptions are necessary for current employees to understand what they are to do to forward the objectives of the mission of the organization and its goals, and for
human resources managers to recruit and hire employees with the skills to complete the job tasks needed in order to deliver services. 
 
With the job description completed, a human relations manager must understand what skills the job has and the skills that the organization has within its current staff with the use of a skills inventory. This comparison allows the development of a list of skills that must be acquired by either training current staff or recruiting new staff with these skills. You will experience the skills inventory this week in your project and explore whether it is more effective to train staff or hire new staff for your organization.

Case Study Questions

What is Ritz-Carlton’s business strategy, e.g., who are their primary customers?
Among consumers, what accounts for Ritz-Carlton’s reputation as a high-quality hotel? How is quality defined by customers?
How is quality defined within Ritz-Carlton? Does the DQPR (Daily Quality Production Report) data in the ritz.xls spreadsheet indicate any significant quality problems?
If you were to select a category of defect to address from the DQPR (Daily Quality Production Report) data, which category would you address first? Why?

answer these three questions. 2pages

  1. The quality control manager at a lightbulb factory needs to estimate the mean life of a new type of lightbulb. The population standard deviation is assumed to be 60 hours. A random sample of 30 lightbulbs shows a sample mean life of 450 hours. Construct and explain a 98% confidence interval estimate of the population mean life of the new lightbulb.

  2. A survey of first-time home buyers found  that the sample mean annual income was $48,000. Assume that the survey used a sample of 25 first-time home buyers and that the sample standard deviation was $1,150. Compute and explain a 95% confidence interval estimate of the population mean.

  3. A telephone poll of 800 American adults asked “where would you rather go in your spare time?”  One response, by 275 adults, was “a movie”. Compute and explain a 90% confidence interval estimate of the proportion of all American adults who would respond “a movie”.

Next week, we’ll be discussing some common misconceptions about evolution. Here are a few examples from the Understanding Evolution website:
Misconceptions about evolutionary theory and processes:

Evolution is a theory about the origin of life.
Evolution results in progress; organisms are always getting better through evolution.
Individual organisms can evolve during a single lifespan.
Humans are not currently evolving.

Misconceptions about natural selection and adaptation:

Natural selection involves organisms trying to adapt.
Natural selection acts for the good of the species.
Natural selection is about survival of the very fittest individuals in a population.
Natural selection produces organisms perfectly suited to their environments.
All traits of organisms are adaptations.

In Science and Myth, John  Maynard Smith argues that science and myth serve to equally important,  yet different, purposes for humans’ understanding of their world. How  might a failure to make this distinction between the functions of  science and myth lead to some of the common misconceptions people hold  about evolution? Use one of the misconceptions from the list above (or  your own example) to explain your reasoning. A short (3-4 sentences)  answer is fine.

Section 5 — Empirical Evaluation Plan for a Public Health Leadership Theory (3–4 pages):
You will assess if the newly developed leadership theory addresses the problem you have been working on.  What methodological steps will you use? How will you collect data? Suggestion – start with how theories in our text are evaluated. It does not have to be detailed, but it must include the methods, measures and analytic techniques.
If the assignments are done correctly, there should be an alignment from the topic of choice to the evaluation:

The topic is researched in the literature
The literature review points out a theoretical gap that needs to be addressed by leadership
The gap is turned into a problem statement
A leadership theory to address the problem proposed
The theory is depicted in a visual; and finally
An evaluation plan describes how the newly developed theory resolves the problem identified in the literature
