Today, social media is playing a major role in the selection process. How would the use of such tools as LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and others impact your decision in finding the right candidate and why would you select such tool(s)? What would be the impact on HR policies??

project team communications

THIS IS TWO SEPERATE ASSIGNMENTS. PLEASE DO NOT COMBINE THEM. 

#1

Project teams may be made up of members who come from a variety of disciplines, professions, and skills. Members may be recruited from a number of internal and external organizations. Project managers must bring together diverse teams to produce the expected business results while maintaining communications and relative harmony. The Jung Myers-Briggs test is often used to identify personality types that make up a team. Armed with this information project team members may have a better idea of how best to approach, work with, and communicate with other members.If you have previously taken the Myers-Briggs test then you may use that information here. If you have not taken the test before then please take the Jung Typology Test, tell us your four letter Myers-Briggs description, and briefly describe its meaning. Tell us if you believe the result accurately describes you and the potential strengths and weaknesses your personality type has in working in teams and or in relationships. (There are sources that discuss this). Replies should contain at least 200 words and be supported by at least one professional or academic source other than the textbook.

#2

A PMO can bring structure to larger and more complex project organizations. Tell us if your current or previous organization has a PMO. Alternatively, you may select an organization you are familiar with or desire to research. If your selected organization does have a PMO, tell us the advantages and disadvantages of your PMO. If your selected organization does not have a PMO, tell us if you would recommend the establishment of a PMO and why or why not.

Your initial post should contain at least 200 words and be supported by at least one professional or academic source other than the textbook. Respond to at least two other classmates. What other advantages or disadvantages might they want to consider?

Prepare a PowerPoint presentation of 6–8 slides with speaker notes of 75-150 words not including title and reference pages that will display the following information:

  • Define and explain the quality process you chose.
  • Define descriptive versus inferential statistics. If you were to survey your members, describe the form of the 4 levels of measurement that would be suited for your task (i.e. nominal, interval, ordinal, and ratio).
  • Identify the purpose of the measure.
  • Illustrate how patients or members have benefited or will benefit from the process.
  • Identify which types of health care organizations are impacted by the standard.
  • Based on your knowledge of the standard being discussed, provide 1–3 changes that you might recommend. If you do not have any recommendations, then provide your reasons for not having a recommendation.

Option 1: Manufacturing Database ; Write a 1,600-word detailed, statistical report including the following: Due Friday 20:00 Eastern

Purpose of Assignment

The purpose of this assignment is for students to synthesize the concepts learned throughout the course. This assignment will provide students an opportunity to build critical thinking skills, develop businesses and organizations, and solve problems requiring data by compiling all pertinent information into one report. 

Assignment Steps 

Resources: Microsoft Excel®, Signature Assignment Databases, Signature Assignment Options, Part 3: Inferential Statistics

Scenario: Upon successful completion of the MBA program, say you work in the analytics department for a consulting company. Your assignment is to analyze one of the following databases:

  • Manufacturing
  • Hospital
  • Consumer Food
  • Financial 

Use the following scenario for the assignnment. (Option 1: Manufacturing Database)

This database contains six variables taken from 20 industries and 140 subindustries in the United States. Some of the industries are food products, textile mill products, furniture, chemicals, rubber products, primary metals, industrial machinery, and transportation equipment. The six variables are Number of Employees, Number of Production Workers, Value Added by Manufacture, Cost of Materials, End-of-Year Inventories, and Industry Group. Two variables, Number of Employees and Number of Production Workers, are in units of 1000. Three variables, Value Added by Manufacture, Cost of Materials, and End-of-Year Inventories, are in million-dollar units. The Industry Group variable consists of numbers from 1 to 20 to denote the industry group to which the particular subindustry belongs.

Provide a 1,600-word detailed, statistical report including the following:

  • Explain the context of the case
  • Provide a research foundation for the topic
  • Present graphs
  • Explain outliers
  • Prepare calculations
  • Conduct hypotheses tests
  • Discuss inferences you have made from the results 

This assignment is broken down into four parts:

  • Part 1 – Preliminary Analysis
  • Part 2 – Examination of Descriptive Statistics
  • Part 3 – Examination of Inferential Statistics
  • Part 4 – Conclusion/Recommendations 

Part 1 – Preliminary Analysis (3-4 paragraphs)

Generally, as a statistics consultant, you will be given a problem and data. At times, you may have to gather additional data. For this assignment, assume all the data is already gathered for you.

State the objective:

  • What are the questions you are trying to address?

Describe the population in the study clearly and in sufficient detail:

  • What is the sample?

Discuss the types of data and variables:

  • Are the data quantitative or qualitative?
  • What are levels of measurement for the data? 

Part 2 – Descriptive Statistics (3-4 paragraphs) 

Examine the given data.

Present the descriptive statistics (mean, median, mode, range, standard deviation, variance, CV, and five-number summary).

Identify any outliers in the data.

Present any graphs or charts you think are appropriate for the data.

Note: Ideally, we want to assess the conditions of normality too. However, for the purpose of this exercise, assume data is drawn from normal populations. 

Part 3 – Inferential Statistics (2-3 paragraphs)

Use the Part 3: Inferential Statistics document.

  • Create (formulate) hypotheses
  • Run formal hypothesis tests
  • Make decisions. Your decisions should be stated in non-technical terms.

Hint: A final conclusion saying “reject the null hypothesis” by itself without explanation is basically worthless to those who hired you. Similarly, stating the conclusion is false or rejected is not sufficient. 

Part 4 – Conclusion and Recommendations (1-2 paragraphs)

Include the following:

  • What are your conclusions?
  • What do you infer from the statistical analysis?
  • State the interpretations in non-technical terms. What information might lead to a different conclusion?
  • Are there any variables missing?
  • What additional information would be valuable to help draw a more certain conclusion?

Format your assignment consistent with APA format.
