How far off your estimates of revenues and expenses can be before your decision would change.

Prepare either a 3-4 page report in which you analyze financial information and risks associated with an investment to expand an organization and make a recommendation on whether or not to invest in expansion. Introduction This portfolio work project will allow you to review information and risks associated with an investment to expand an organization. As this information will be shared broadly across the organization, you will have a choice in your final deliverable audience and will organize your deliverable to meet the needs of that audience. Scenario ZXY Company is a food product company. ZXY is considering expanding to two new products and a second production facility. The food products are staples with steady demands. The proposed expansion will require an investment of $7,000,000 for equipment with an assumed ten-year life, after which all equipment and other assets can be sold for an estimated $1,000,000. They will be renting the facility. ZXY requires a 12 percent return on investments. You have been asked to recommend whether or not to make the investment. Your Role You are an accounting manager. Your boss has asked you to review and provide a recommendation on the expansion based on information that has been provided. Requirements In preparing and supporting your recommendation to either make the investment or not, include the following items as part of your analysis: Analysis of financial information. Identification of risks associated with the investment. Consider: How risky the project appears. How far off your estimates of revenues and expenses can be before your decision would change. The difference if the company were to use a straight line versus a MACRS depreciation. Recommendation for a course of action. Explanation of criteria supporting your recommendation. Financial Information As part of your analysis you might find that additional information from marketing, accounting, or finance would be useful in making an informed and well-supported recommendation. In a real workplace setting you would have the ability to ask for that information. However, for the purposes of this assessment, you can make assumptions about the values of that data or ratios in support of your recommendation. Accounting worked with the marketing group to create the ZXY Company Financial Statements spreadsheet for the new products business and the new facility. Notes about the financial information: The expense line labeled SQF FDA Mandates refers to the costs of complying with Food and Drug Administration requirements. Depreciation expense is calculated using 7-year life modified accelerated cost recovery system (MACRS). Deliverable Format Depending on the audience you choose to address, use one of the following options: Report for a mid-management audience. Prepare a 3–4 page report detailing your recommendation and the information you used to make your recommendation. Keep in mind that your recommendation may be shared with others, so your materials should be designed for clarity and readability. Related company standards for either format: The recommendation report is a professional document and should therefore follow the corresponding MBA Academic and Professional Document Guidelines, including single-spaced paragraphs. In addition to the report or presentation, include: Title (slide or page). References (slide or page). Appendix with supporting materials. At least two APA-formatted references. Evaluation By successfully completing this assessment, you will demonstrate your proficiency in the following course competencies through corresponding scoring guide criteria: Competency 2: Apply principles of accounting to assess financial performance. Analyze financial statements for decision support. Explain risks associated with an investment decision. Competency 3: Analyze accounting information to support business decisions. Recommend a course of action based on financial information. Explain how financial criteria support a decision. Competency 4: Communicate financial information with multiple stakeholders. Communicate accounting information clearly.

Describe ways to incorporate evidence-based practice within an interdisciplinary team.

For this assessment, you will create a 2-4 page report on an interview you have conducted with a health care professional. You will identify an issue from the interview that could be improved with an interdisciplinary approach, and review best practices and evidence to address the issue. As a baccalaureate-prepared nurse, your participation and leadership in interdisciplinary teams will be vital to the health outcomes for your patients and organization. One way to approach designing an improvement project is to use the Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycle. The Institute for Healthcare Improvement describes it thus: The Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) cycle is shorthand for testing a change in the real work setting—by planning it, trying it, observing the results, and acting on what is learned. This is the scientific method adapted for action-oriented learning…Essentially, the PDSA cycle helps you test out change ideas on a smaller scale before evaluating the results and making adjustments before potentially launching into a somewhat larger scale project (n.d.). You might also recognize that the PDSA cycle resembles the nursing process. The benefit of gaining experience with this model of project design is that it provides nurses with an opportunity to ideate and lead improvements. For this assessment, you will not be implementing all of the PDSA cycle. Instead, you are being asked to interview a health care professional of your choice to determine what kind of interdisciplinary problem he or she is experiencing or has experienced in the workplace. This interview, in Assessment 2, will inform the research that you will conduct to propose a plan for interdisciplinary collaboration in Assessment 3. It would be an excellent choice to complete the PDSA Cycle activity prior to developing the report. The activity consists of four questions that create the opportunity to check your understanding of best practices related to each stage of the PDSA cycle. The information gained from completing this formative will promote your success with the Interview and Interdisciplinary Issue Identification report. This will take just a few minutes of your time and is not graded. Reference Institute for Healthcare Improvement. (n.d.). How to improve. http://www.ihi.org/resources/Pages/HowtoImprove/default.aspx Demonstration of Proficiency Competency 2: Explain how interdisciplinary collaboration can be used to achieve desired patient and systems outcomes. Summarize an interview focused on past or current issues at a health care organization. Describe collaboration approaches from the literature that could be relevant in establishing or improving an interdisciplinary team to address an organizational issue. Competency 3: Describe ways to incorporate evidence-based practice within an interdisciplinary team. Identify an issue from an interview for which an evidence-based interdisciplinary approach would be appropriate. Competency 4: Explain how change management theories and leadership strategies can enable interdisciplinary teams to achieve specific organizational goals. Describe change theories and a leadership strategy that could help develop an interdisciplinary solution to an organizational issue. Competency 5: Apply professional, scholarly, evidence-based communication strategies to impact patient, interdisciplinary team, and systems outcomes. Organize content so ideas flow logically with smooth transitions; contains few errors in grammar/punctuation, word choice, and spelling. Apply APA formatting to in-text citations and references, exhibiting nearly flawless adherence to APA format. Professional Context This assessment will introduce the Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) Model to create change in an organization. By interviewing a colleague of your choice, you will begin gathering information about an interprofessional collaboration problem that your colleague is experiencing or has experienced. You will identify a change theory and leadership strategies to help solve this problem. Scenario This assessment is the first of three related assessments in which you will gather interview information (Assessment 2); design a proposal for interdisciplinary problem-solving, (Assessment 3); and report on how an interdisciplinary improvement plan could be implemented in a place of practice (Assessment 4). At the end of the course, your interviewee will have a proposal plan based on the PDSA cycle that he or she could present to stakeholders to address an interdisciplinary problem in the workplace. For this assessment, you will need to interview a health care professional such as a fellow learner, nursing colleague, administrator, business partner, or another appropriate person who could provide you with sufficient information regarding an organizational problem that he or she is experiencing or has experienced, or an area where they are seeking improvements. Consult the Interview Guide [DOCX] for an outline of how to prepare and the types of information you will need to complete this project successfully. Remember: this is just the first in a series of three assessments. Instructions For this assessment, you will report on the information that you collected in your interview, analyzing the interview data and identifying a past or current issue that would benefit from an interdisciplinary approach. This could be an issue that has not been addressed by an interdisciplinary approach or one that could benefit from improvements related to the interdisciplinary approach currently being used. You will discuss the interview strategy that you used to collect information. Your interview strategy should be supported by citations from the literature. Additionally, you will start laying the foundation for your Interdisciplinary Plan Proposal (Assessment 3) by researching potential change theories, leadership strategies, and collaboration approaches that could be relevant to issue you have identified. Please be certain to review the scoring guide to confirm specific required elements of this assessment. Note that there are differences between basic, proficient and distinguished scores. When submitting your plan, use the Interview and Issue Identification Template [DOCX], which will help you to stay organized and concise. As you complete the template, make sure you use APA format for in-text citations for the evidence and best practices that are informing your plan, as well as for the reference list at the end. Additionally, be sure to address the following, which corresponds to the grading criteria in the scoring guide. Please study the scoring guide carefully so you understand what is needed for a distinguished score. Summarize an interview focused on past or current issues at a health care organization. Identify an issue from an interview for which an evidence-based interdisciplinary approach would be appropriate. Describe potential change theories and leadership strategies that could inform an interdisciplinary solution to an organizational issue. Describe collaboration approaches from the literature that could facilitate establishing or improving an interdisciplinary team to address an organizational issue. Communicate with writing that is clear, logically organized, and professional, with correct grammar and spelling, and using current APA style. Additional Requirements Length of submission: Use the provided template. Most submissions will be 2 to 4 pages in length. Be sure to include a reference page at the end of the plan. Number of references: Cite a minimum of 3 sources of scholarly or professional evidence that support your central ideas. Resources should be no more than 5 years old. APA formatting: Make sure that in-text citations and reference list follow current APA style.

Explain how change management theories and leadership strategies can enable interdisciplinary teams to achieve specific organizational goals.

For this assessment you will create a reflection on an experience in which you collaborated interprofessionally, as well as a brief discussion of an interprofessional collaboration scenario and how it could have been better approached. Interprofessional collaboration is a critical aspect of a nurse’s work. Through interprofessional collaboration, practitioners and patients share information and consider each other’s perspectives to better understand and address the many factors that contribute to health and well-being (Sullivan et al., 2015). Essentially, by collaborating, health care practitioners and patients can have better health outcomes. Nurses, who are often at the frontlines of interacting with various groups and records, are full partners in this approach to health care. Reflection is a key part of building interprofessional competence, as it allows you to look critically at experiences and actions through specific lenses. From the standpoint of interprofessional collaboration, reflection can help you consider potential reasons for and causes of people’s actions and behaviors (Saunders et al., 2016). It also can provide opportunities to examine the roles team members adopted in a given situation as well as how the team could have worked more effectively. Your reflection assessment will focus on both your professional experience and the Vila Health activity as described in the scenario. References Saunders, R., Singer, R., Dugmore, H., Seaman, K., & Lake, F. (2016). Nursing students’ reflections on an interprofessional placement in ambulatory care. Reflective Practice, 17(4), 393–402. Sullivan, M., Kiovsky, R., Mason, D., Hill, C., Duke, C. (2015). Interprofessional collaboration and education. American Journal of Nursing, 115(3), 47–54. Demonstration of Proficiency Competency 1: Explain strategies for managing human and financial resources to promote organizational health. Identify how poor collaboration can result in inefficient management of human and financial resources supported by evidence from the literature. Competency 2: Explain how interdisciplinary collaboration can be used to achieve desired patient and systems outcomes. Reflect on an interdisciplinary collaboration experience noting ways in which it was successful and unsuccessful in achieving desired outcomes. Identify best-practice interdisciplinary collaboration strategies to help a team to achieve its goals and work more effectively together. Competency 4: Explain how change management theories and leadership strategies can enable interdisciplinary teams to achieve specific organizational goals. Identify best-practice leadership strategies from the literature, which would improve an interdisciplinary team’s ability to achieve its goals. Competency 5: Apply professional, scholarly, evidence-based communication strategies to impact patient, interdisciplinary team, The full reference list is from relevant and evidence-based (published within 5 years) sources, exhibiting nearly flawless adherence to APA format. Professional Context This assessment will help you to become a reflective practitioner. By considering your own successes and shortcomings in interprofessional collaboration, you will increase awareness of your problem-solving abilities. Your reflections will include a discussion of best practices of interprofessional collaboration and leadership strategies, cited in the literature. Scenario As part of an initiative to build effective collaboration at your Vila Health site, where you are a nurse, you have been asked to reflect on a project or experience in which you collaborated interprofessionally and examine what happened during the collaboration, identifying positive aspects and areas for improvement. You have also been asked to review a series of events that took place at another Vila Health location and research interprofessional collaboration best practices and use the lessons learned from your experiences to make recommendations for improving interprofessional collaboration among their team. Your task is to create a 5–10 minute video reflection with suggestions for the Vila Health team that can be shared with leadership as well as Vila Health colleagues at your site. Instructions reflection on an interprofessional collaboration experience from your personal practice, proposing suggestions on how to improve the collaboration presented in the Vila Health: Collaboration for Change activity. Be sure that your assessment addresses the following criteria. Please study the scoring guide carefully so you will know what is needed for a distinguished score: Reflect on an interdisciplinary collaboration experience, noting ways in which it was successful and unsuccessful in achieving desired outcomes. Identify how poor collaboration can result in inefficient management of human and financial resources, citing supporting evidence from the literature. Identify best-practice leadership strategies from the literature that would improve an interdisciplinary team’s ability to achieve its goals, citing at least one author from the literature. Identify best-practice interdisciplinary collaboration strategies to help a team achieve its goals and work together, citing the work of at least one author. Communicate in a professional manner, is easily audible, and uses proper grammar. Format reference list in current APA style. You will need to relate an experience that you have had collaborating on a project. This could be at your current or former place of practice, or another relevant project that will enable you to address the requirements. In addition to describing your experience, you should explain aspects of the collaboration that helped the team make progress toward relevant goals or outcomes, as well as aspects of the collaboration that could have been improved. A simplified gap-analysis approach may be useful: What happened? What went well? What did not go well? What should have happened? After your personal reflection, examine the scenario in the Vila Health activity and discuss the ways in which the interdisciplinary team did not collaborate effectively and the negative implications for the human and financial resources of the interdisciplinary team and the organization as a whole. Building on this investigation, identify at least one leadership best practice or strategy that you believe would improve the team’s ability to achieve their goals. Be sure to identify the strategy and its source or author and provide a brief rationale for your choice of strategy. Additionally, identify at least one interdisciplinary collaboration best practice or strategy to help the team achieve its goals and work more effectively together. Again, identify the strategy, its source, and reasons why you think it will be effective. You are encouraged to integrate lessons learned from your self-reflection to support and enrich your discussion of the Vila Health activity. You are required to submit an APA-formatted reference list for any sources that you cited. Additional Requirements References: Cite at least 3 professional or scholarly sources of evidence to support the assertions you make in your video. Include additional properly cited references as necessary to support your statements. APA Reference Page: Submit a correctly formatted APA reference page that shows all the sources you used to create and deliver your video. You may wish to refer to the Campus APA Module for more information on applying APA style.

How does social media affect our mental health?

Topic is: How does social media affect our mental health? APA 7. After studying how to evaluate websites in the interactive lecture, choose two websites related to your topic. Identify your two websites. Are they credible sources that may be included in the annotated bibliography in week 4? Evaluate the source based on the criteria for evaluating credibility that we studied last week. The evaluation process is a bit trickier here, as you will want to carefully consider the domain—the information on the “About Us” page. Keep in mind that the About Us page is being written by the creators of the web page. Can you identify vested interests or bias? Does the web page suggest avenues for further research? Are there specific experts that are highlighted? What questions come to mind for further investigation? Can you identify perspectives that are unexplored?
