Imagine that you are a senior consultant at Practical Health Care Consulting. Yo

Imagine that you are a senior consultant at Practical Health Care Consulting. Your supervisor has instructed you to spend three months at the Caring Angel Hospital to help improve the quality of care, add value to the organization, improve employee morale, design an efficient organizational chart, create a strong team environment, and create the hospital’s competitive advantage. The hospital has traditionally made losses year after year. Furthermore, it is not performing well financially, and the banks are not willing to lend it large sums of money for more effective marketing.
As you settle into your observations, you notice that your patients are still hopping from one specialized hospital to another in search of various specialized treatments. You also notice that the seats are not comfortable in the waiting area, and the patients continuously show up for appointments on the wrong dates. The nurses and the employees are not smiling during patient conversations, and everyone looks for ways to blame others for failures in the patient treatment process. Everyone seems to work alone and hide what they do from their colleagues.
At the end of the 3-month period, you must provide a report with your recommended strategies designed to help Caring Angel Hospital achieve its goals.
Note: You may create or make all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this assignment.
Requirements
Write a 5–7 page paper in which you:
Propose the major steps that Caring Angel Hospital could take to achieve each of the following goals:
Improve the quality of care.
Add value to the organization.
Improve employee morale.
Design an efficient organizational chart.
Create a strong team environment.
Create the hospital’s competitive edge.
Recommend one approach that the hospital could use for acquiring a larger market share given the prevailing financial circumstances. Support your recommendation with specific examples.
Propose at least two value-added services that Caring Angel Hospital could offer to strengthen its value proposition. Support your proposal with at least two examples of the advantages of these value-added services to the hospital.
Use at least four quality sources to support your writing. Choose sources that are credible, relevant, and appropriate. Cite each source listed on your source page at least one time within your assignment.
Use the Strayer University Online Library to find four recent quality academic resources that are current (within the last five years) for this assignment

Read the article, “The movie-made Movement: civil rites of passage” by Sharon Mo

Read the article, “The movie-made Movement: civil rites of passage” by Sharon Monteith
Take note of the different themes of various movies she discusses and the overall argument she makes regarding Civil Rights movies.
Watch either the movie Just Mercy (2019)or the movie Selma (2014). PLEASE NOTE: The movie Selma has graphic depictions of violence that may be difficult to watch. On the other hand, Just Mercy eludes to violence but does not actually show graphic scenes. Take this into consideration when choosing which movie to watch. How to watch: Both movies are free to stream online.
After watching one of the movies, write a 5 page paper that addresses the following questions: Does the movie you watched relate to one of the themes Sharon Monteith discusses in her article? Consider the argument made from the article, “History has less epistemological hold on movies than memory.” Does the movie you saw prove or disprove this statement? In what way? And, also consider the year the movie came out. What does the theme of the movie say about how society at the time of release “sees” the Civil Rights Movement? Remember, do not structure your paper as a list of answers to these questions. Rather, state a thesis in the first paragraph that addresses these questions and then use evidence from the text or the movie to prove your argument. When citing the movie, just put (Title of Movie, year).

create one Main Post and a minimum of4 Response Posts.
At the end of each unit, DB participation is assessed based on level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion. DBs allow learners to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB are accepted after the end of the unit. Learners must demonstrate an appropriate depth of understanding of course content to receive credit for having submitted substantive posts. Typically, this is achieved with 3–4 strong paragraphs for Main Posts and 2–3 strong paragraphs for Response Posts.

Continuous Improvement
Part 1
Greetings Dr. Mgbike and scholars. I do have some questions for the unit 5 project. I think it’s a great idea to jump ahead with researching the assignments for the final project. It’s never too early to me. The first question is, do I submit my individual portion to you first once I have it completed since it says please add your file? Or does that mean to go ahead and add it to the group portion? For the group live chat, is that going to be assigned dates? If a person can’t make it, will they be able to look at it on their own time?
My initial thoughts for the final assignment are to avoid waiting until the last minute because life has its challenges, and this may have an impact on the group’s studies which cannot be afforded. My approaches for this last task would be to utilize all the available resources that pertain to the assignment. These resources would be from the library, Intellipath, the textbook, MUSE, as well as, other healthy Internet resources, and most definitely I would take advantage from the live chats from Dr. Mgbike which are entirely very helpful for the assignments. I will implement the information from my outline and executive summary and plant them as approaches as well.
Benchmarking came about through (Robert C. Camp’s book, 1989). Benchmarking is in the realms of the total quality process which firms form together to identify best practices for improvement within the businesses to study a product or service to go against competitors. Benchmarking is a tool that stems to establishes the allocated resources. Benchmarking may potentially be more beneficial than continuous improvement in the area of faster services because bigger changes can be applied at the same time.
Benchmarking supports the efforts of continuous improvement by being able to provide insights from the firms, this is ideal because the company may be so busy to where they can’t keep up with the elements provided by the continuous improvements. Different models are provided from benchmarking so the company can flourish. Companies are consciously more aware of their competitors than from the past as also being efforts in support of continuous improvement that uses benchmarking. Optimum performance within an organization from benchmarking is achieved by the favored attainable performance so, they have the ability to perform very well using these models.

Part I
What questions do you have about the overarching Unit 5 assignment? Although it is not due until the end of the class, it is important that you begin planning for this project early in the course. What are your initial thoughts about how you will approach this assignment? Explain.
What is benchmarking, and how can it be used to support continuous improvement efforts and an organization’s ability to achieve optimum performance?

When working with others on a group project for an online course, there are always issues. The common problems are a lack of communication, a misunderstanding of the assignment, and group members who do not pull their weight. The first question for the Unit Five assignment is when the project teams will be formed. Another controversy regarding this project is whether each group member must present a 7–10-page paper or whether a collective effort is required.

For the group to effectively complete this project, all members must collaborate during the planning process. During this phase, members can provide information and clarification regarding the task. The group will need to remain in frequent contact with one another and perform research on the task. If the project is a collaborative activity, individuals can be assigned specific roles to complete it.

Benchmarking is technique businesses use to compare their internal operations processes to those of other top-tier competitors inside or outside their sector. This strategy supports businesses in identifying success factors and reducing the difference between the top performers (Goetsch, 2021). There are numerous advantages to benchmarking in a company’s operations, including continuous improvement, competitive analysis, and performance monitoring. Benchmarking helps firms constantly improve by concentrating on fluctuating elements and enhancing them over time (Innovature BPO, 2022).

2. What is benchmarking, and how can it be used to support continuous improvement efforts and an organization’s ability to achieve optimum performance?
Benchmarking is when a firm seeks to partner with another firm and study a particular process or area of business. Although this improvement process method is not typically continuous, it has the ability to outline all issues at once and then they are solved. One asks, “How can this become continuous?” One feels that benchmarking can become continuous by assessing a particular process within a company once a quarter. Continuously, the company will be making modifications to outdated procedures, employee appreciation, or even outdated equipment.
3. What is the PDSA cycle, and how is it used to support continuous improvement?
Plan- Work with a team to identify a problem and begin planning or brainstorming improvements.
Ex: Currently, our team is focusing on increasing family and community engagement at school events

Do- Work together to implement strategies identified during the planning stage
Ex: One idea that was agreed upon was to offer incentives for attending such as a raffle and the giveaway can come from donations received from partners.

Study- Now, this is the area where the team will evaluate all hypotheses and test employed
Ex: Two community events were hosted over two months. Each time, the incentives were bike and gift card giveaway. The first event the attendance was 36 families. The second event there were 58 families in attendance.

Act- This is when you will adapt the procedure that work or revert back to the study phase for a new technique if the process improvement idea did not work.
Ex: We will adopt this process going forward and we will work with community partners to provide incentives. The attendance increased and more parents expressed their interest in having the raffle at every event.

PDSA is used to identify a potential lack and create a plan to fulfill the lack. Consistently, companies can utilize this technique. PDSA can have unlimited cycles. Solutions can be adapted or rework based on business needs.

What questions do you have about the overarching Unit 5 assignment? Although it is not due until the end of the class, it is important that you begin planning for this project early in the course. What are your initial thoughts about how you will approach this assignment? Explain.
The questions I have relevant to the Unit 5 assignment would be how to communicate with my group about the assignment. I would ask if everyone in my group collectively has input on the assignment. I will research online and continue with Intellipath assignments to help me better understand the assignment at hand.
What is benchmarking, and how can it be used to support continuous improvement efforts and an organization’s ability to achieve optimum performance?
Benchmarking is used to discover the best performance that is being achieved. It is the process of obtaining measure. In order for this to take place, one must understand the organizations guidelines. Benchmarking also focuses on best practices, continuous improvement, and maintaining a competitive edge.

#NAME?

-Discuss how the event of the region relates to the physical environment, population/settlement, culture diversity, geopolitical/ economic/ social development in the region. (choose 3)
This was what I submitted for my essay idea and what I was going to go off of: The withdrawal of the UK from the EU affected its economy because it impacted trade. Brexit also had significant geopolitical impact for both the UK and EU, as it was the first time a sovereign nation has left the union. For example, in result of the withdrawal the EU lost a portion of its weight in foreign policy. This also had cultural impacts, in that European citizens can no longer travel freely to the UK, and they must now comply with different entry requirements.
-It’s supposed to APA style, but an abstract is not necessary.
-3 pages not including the source page or any maps or diagrams
-Include a map or diagram and label how it relates to event
-Use a minimum of three sources from scholarly journals
Thank you so much!!!

The multimodal project is based on the concept of remediation: using pieces of a

The multimodal project is based on the concept of remediation: using pieces of a previous creation in a new and transformative way. The resulting creative work will both comment on the original and offer new insights.
Multimodal: Using more than one modality: visual, audio, spatial, linguistic, gestural
Remediation: Re + media + tion, to rework an artifact in a new medium.
Transformative: Reworked in such a way that the original artifact is completely transformed (for a new audience and purpose).
Your project will be created around a working theme from the text. You will explore this theme by combining elements from the original in new ways, considering both your audience and purpose for the transformative work.
Your purpose should be to present and interpret the theme of the work, using at least two modalities.
Your intended audience is up to you; however, do consider that you have an actual audience (your professor).
A Noiseless Patient Spider BY WALT WHITMAN will be used to base this project around
https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/45473/a-noiseless-patient-spider
Rationale
The rationale, a 4- to 5-paragraph essay of at least 500 words, will describe how the project both transforms and critically engages with the original text, explaining the choices made (media, purpose, audience, use of original material, and other elements).
