The stakeholder presentation serves as the bridge between analytics and business decision making.   The presentation provides you with the framework to integrate the course content through a real-life example. 


Choose an organization that you are passionate about. Consider how this organization is performing. Are there areas for improvement?  Even the most well-run organizations experience problems.

Now imagine for a moment that your team has been recently hired as analytic consultants for this organization. Brainstorm and come up with 2-3 ideas that that organization may be facing currently. It is your team’s job to investigate why things are happening. For example: Why are sales declining or why do our products sell more during poor weather?

Choose the most appealing idea, and use the rubric below to answer that question for your organization. 

Using the provided rubric, analyze the problem and present your findings. You are expected to integrate relevant models and concepts from assigned readings in your analysis, along with using logic and insights/skills from previous classes and personal experiences.  The presentation should be at least 30 minutes and should not exceed 45 minutes.  Your team should use PowerPoint slides to support your presentation.  Use the Kaltura tool (Links to an external site.) to record a narrated screencast

For this assignment, select one of the following options:

Option 1: Imperialism
The exploitation of colonial resources and indigenous labor was one of the key elements in the success of imperialism. Such exploitation was a result of the prevalent ethnocentrism of the time and was justified by the unscientific concept of social Darwinism, which praised the characteristics of white Europeans and inaccurately ascribed negative characteristics to indigenous peoples. A famous poem of the time by Rudyard Kipling, “White Man’s Burden,” called on imperial powers, and particularly the U.S., at whom the poem was directed, to take up the mission of civilizing these “savage” peoples.

Read the poem at the following link:

After reading the poem, address the following in a case study analysis:

  • Select a specific part of the world (a country), and examine imperialism in that country. What was the relationship between the invading country and the native people? You can select from these examples or choose your own:
    • Belgium & Africa
    • Britain & India
    • Germany & Africa
    • France & Africa
  • Apply social Darwinism to this specific case.
  • Analyze the motivations of the invading country?
  • How did ethnocentrism manifest in their interactions?
  • How does Kipling’s poem apply to your specific example? You can quote lines for comparison.

Abc supports training | Human Resource Management homework help

1.  Explain your understanding of the following statement and concept “growing their own people.”  

2.  Identify one challenge that ABC is currently facing. 

3.  How is training and development promoted and supported in ABC? 

4.  What methods does ABC employ to get the message across in order to engage as many employees as possible?

Companies that are serious about getting a return on their investment in learning and development understand that the job isn’t finished until the new knowledge and skills are successfully applied in a way that improves performance. They recognize that getting better at anything requires practice and that when trying anything new, people need support and coaching.

 Supporting Training at ABC Organization

ABC Organization is a logistics delivery service, employs over 1500 staff working throughout the nation. The majority of these employees work at one of over 20 major depots as drivers or operational loaders. The delivery and logistics industry is heavily monitored not only to ensure that flow of parcels can be tracked, but also for security reasons. ABC believes in growing their own people and promoting staff from within the company, several depot general managers started out as drivers or indoor sales executives. It is therefore important to ABC that staff have a meaningful career and development path. One of the challenges has been to change the attitude of line managers from ‘my job is getting parcels out’ to ‘my job is to develop my staff to do their jobs better’.  As you might expect for an organization employing staff from drivers and loading bay operators to general managers and directors, providing the appropriate training to all is difficult.

ABC is committed to Investors in People (IiP) and has won awards for its training and development. The company firmly believes that individual learning, rather than directive training, is critical to business success. To quote from one of the managers, John Shipit, General Manager, “Training, developing and empowering your people gives you the freedom and the confidence to make changes quickly, affect your business positively and achieve results.” The benefits of this culture can be seen in better delegation, succession planning, and in reducing staff turnover – crucial when there is a national driver shortage. This view is articulated and promoted through the production of a people development charter. 

All ABC managers will: 

·  remain actively committed to the development of ABC people 

·  work to build a company culture which encourages and supports learning 

·  lead by example in developing people 

·  recognize and respect the valuable contribution of our people

 Your line manager will: 

·  actively encourage your personal and professional development 

·  provide you with regular feedback on your performance 

·  help you to continuously improve your skills and knowledge 

·  ensure your learning is linked to the success of your team and the company

You should: 

·  take responsibility for your own development and learning 

·  apply new skills and knowledge at your workplace 

·  know that whatever your job, wherever your location, you have the opportunity to develop

Supporting Training and Learning

A team of eight regional training officers, managed by a regional training manager, supports and audits the systems in place for training and learning. They must ensure that ‘what is promised’ happens. Their responsibilities include: monitoring and supporting line managers at depots; carrying out all internal audits; checking personnel files and appraisal forms. Line managers undertake appraisal training as part of their management training and carry immediate responsibility for ensuring all their staff have meaningful appraisals. The regional training officers support line managers but also check that appraisals take place annually and that any training needs that are identified are met. One of the key reasons for the success of ABC’s training and learning interventions is its evident alignment with the culture and practices of the organization.

Regular performance indicators on the training and learning efforts (for example appraisal forms completed and training requests met) are produced and discussed at management meetings. As John Strong, Head of People Development says: “It’s imperative that our line managers take their people management responsibilities seriously to enable them to develop their staff for success. The regional training officer’s role is to support and encourage line managers in their people management responsibilities as well as to report and assess how they perform against target.”

The requirements below must be met:

·  Write between 1,250 – 1,750 words (approximately 3 – 5 pages) using Microsoft Word in APA style, see example below.

·  Use font size 12 and 1” margins.

·  At least 80% of your paper must be original content/writing.

L12da | Marketing homework help



Mike Stephenson, the president and CEO of Earth Systems, Inc., a waste management firm, was recently hospitalized, suffering from exhaustion and a heart ailment. Immediately prior to his hospitalization, Earth Systems had experienced a sharp decline in its stock price, and trading activity became almost nonexistent. The primary reason for this was concern expressed in the media over a new untested waste management system implemented by the company. Mr. Stephenson had been unwilling to submit the procedure to testing before implementation, but he reluctantly agreed to limited tests after the system was operational. No problems have been identified by the tests to date. The other members of management called a meeting to determine what they should do. Roger Carlson, the marketing manager, suggested that the company purchase a large number of shares of treasury stock. In that way, investors might notice that activity had picked up, and might decide to buy some more shares. This plan would use up most of the company’s available cash, so that there will be no money available for a cash dividend. Earth Systems has paid cash dividends every quarter for over ten years. To receive full credit, answer both:

  • Is Mr. Carlson’s suggestion ethical?
  • Is it ethical to discontinue the cash dividend? Explain.
