 Assume for this assignment that you are being highly considered for a director-level HR management position for a best-in-class national retailer. You are in the final phase of the interview process and must respond to the interview panel regarding specific questions and scenarios that will help them determine if you are a good fit for the new role. The company’s culture is centered on the effective development of strategy, plans, and selection criteria aimed at building and sustaining a competitive and profitable organization. It will be extremely important that you respond with a strategic mindset in order to convince the organization you are able to help them ensure the execution of the business strategy.


Write a six- to seven-page paper in which you do the following:

  • Analyze different types of strategies (cost leadership, differentiation, and focus or niche) and select which one you would deem more appropriate for an “efficiency-minded” retail organization and explain your rationale. How would the selected strategy ultimately affect how HR does its job?
  • Examine the four approaches to job design or redesign and provide an example (not a definition) of each. Then, make a case to the interviewing panel on the importance of effective job design applications in supporting the overall strategic goals of the organization.
  • Consider challenges and constraints associated with recruiting workers and identify and discuss at least two issues. What advice would you give to ease your selected issues? Be specific.
  • List and describe 2–3 candidate selection process ideas that might add value and overall effectiveness to the process.
  • Example: 5 Tips for Designing an Effective Employee Selection System.
  • Also, what problems should HR and management teams avoid during the selection process?
  • Use at least four quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: You may only use the resources listed in the Course Guide and those that are specifically provided by the professor.

The most effective impact of investment in health care will come from effective management and policy. From this position, discuss the following:

-Discuss the evolution of the U.S. health care system and how both the development of policy and the management requirements have been influenced by traditions and values.

-Discuss the influence of the changing needs of the labor force due to increased technology, the aging of America, and various economic factors (including aging workforce, cost of turnover, cost of education and training, and so forth) with a focus on health care administration.

-Discuss the 3 approaches to management and policy (systems, critical, and public interest) as they relate to the management perspective in health care.

Select a real or hypothetical health care organization, and address the following:

Identify the market sector your organization falls into (mass market or niche services). How does the population health approach to health care rather than the curative approach affect service delivery and management in your organization?

Assess common health care leadership issues (e.g., organizational climate, teamwork, coaching, and so on) and their impact on stakeholders.

Discuss the ethical and legal issues that may be found in the health care organization of your choice.

Provide at least 3 suggestions to minimize negative outcomes and maximize the positive outcomes of leadership intervention in areas such as staffing, financing, competition, regulations, and public image.

Discussion 1: Define the terms culture, ethnocentrism, and prejudice, and describe their relationship to one another. Then, select one case study from Chapter 16 in Leadership: Theory and Practice, based on its relevance to your professional or personal interests, and briefly discuss how you see these concepts in action in the case. How would you coach leadership of the organization in the case to be more effective and supportive of diverse people?

Discussion  2: Define and describe the principles of ethical leadership. Which two of the five principles covered in Chapter 16 do you think are the most important, and why? Discuss this in the context of a specific example, either from your own professional experience, or from one of the case studies in Chapter 13 of the course textbook.

  • You have been hired by a large hospitality firm (e.g., Marriott International, Hilton, Sheraton, Best Western, etc.) to be the project manager of the firm’s HQ office relocation project.

Explain to them the key elements of project management by comparing it to something they do understand well – human resources management (HRM). Be sure that your explanation addresses their fears of project management.

Conclusion and recommendations


In the Christ & Diwan (2008) article, the authors list seven domains that social workers should address in order to fully assess an older client’s needs. Each domain is considered equally important. This comprehensive evaluation fits well with the social work perspective that it is important to not only address the internal concerns of clients but also their environment. Making decisions for older adults without their input occurs often. In society people sometimes treat their elders like children—making decisions for them based on what they think is best rather than from the client’s perspective. While at times this may be well intentioned, the potential for infantilism and, in turn, compromised self-determination, occurs.

For this Discussion, review the program case study for the Petrakis family. You will focus not on Helen, but on her mother-in-law, Magda. What decisions were made about Magda’s treatment without a formal assessment and/or her input? Consider how Christ & Diwan’s (2008) seven domains relate to Magda’s case. Complete an assessment for Magda and identify the choices that were made without her feedback.

The Petrakis Family (pp. 20–22)

Post a summary of your assessment of Magda’s situation that addresses the seven domains. Fill in the gaps in content as necessary. Describe ways you would have included Magda in the original assessment and treatment plan. Include questions you would have asked Magda and her professional support system (doctors, nurses, etc.) to gain further insight into the situation.
