IOM Competencies Case Study Nurses who work night shift at hospitals are often faced with the dilemma of whether or not to call a physician for advice during the night. Fear of having to deal with an unpleasant doctor can be intimidating, as the physician is frequently asleep when being called. Failure to communicate has been linked to poor quality and patient errors, therefore nurses and doctors must communicate and work collaboratively in order to provide high quality and safe care to their patients. The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends educating health professionals in five different areas: providing patient centered care, working in interdisciplinary teams, employing evidence based practice, applying quality improvement, and utilizing informatics (Yoder-Wise, 2011). Learning and applying these competencies will help nurses and physicians to deliver the best healthcare possible and lead to positive patient outcomes. The following will describe how IOM competencies can be used in healthcare. A decline in patient status can require needing further recommendations by the physician.
Nurses should assess patient situations early, as this could help to avoid waking a doctor. It is best to try and prevent calling doctors unless it is an emergency and cannot wait until morning. Other avenues should be pursued prior to reaching out for guidance to the doctor. Asking a senior nurse or a supervisor for assistance, support and guidance should be one possibility in trying to do whatever necessary to manage the situation. Applying evidence based clinical practice with standard protocols will help serve as a guide in treatment prior to calling.
If a physician does need to be contacted for further patient orders, the nurse should be organized prior to…...

It has just been announced that a major world trade expo is to be held in Ho Chi Minh City. Around the World Hotels is interested in providing accommodation for some of the expected thousands of delegates. However, there is no time to build a new hotel. Around the World are considering approaching an existing hotel group to form an alliance. • What issues need to be considered when establishing an alliance in this case? Choosing the right form of governance. The benefits of cooperation versus the dangers of new competition. Managing the reputation. Staffing needs. • What form would you suggest the alliance take? Non-equity strategic alliance. Because this is a short term event and this is the easiest form of strategic alliance to form in such a short time. The company could work with another hotel group to forge a similar deal as airline code-sharing. This would allow Around the World Hotels guests to potentially book through their website, and receive the same premium guest experience in the hotels in Vietnam. The reputation of Around the World Hotels could be used to attract more guests to the hotel in Vietnam. • Outline the major challenges for Around the World Hotels in establishing the type of alliance you recommend.

...This case study is an excellent example of how different types of parties can be brought together in a large scale transaction and how the original energy of those early meetings can be lost over time. I imagine that when Anthony Athanas was purchasing those old piers back in the 1960s many, if not all, of his colleagues, friends, and family members told him that he was off his rocker. I’m sure Athanas was looking at this land as his family’s ticket to financial prosperity and somewhat of a legacy that he could leave to his descendants for years and years to come. One of the items I wish the case would have divulged is the amount of money that Athanas had invested in the properties. For me this information would have given an insight to his net worth and how much he had riding on this investment. I assume it was substantial given his actions later in the process. Twenty years later Athanas’ dreams came true and all those naysayers were more than likely green with envy. The amount of pride Athanas’ had in his investment at that moment had to have been insurmountable. Being approached by a big time real estate development company and their extremely wealthy client, Hyatt Corporation, must have made Athanas feel larger than life and made him feel like something he isn’t, which is a developer himself. The case doesn’t give much insight into whether Athanas had any representation or anyone consulting him throughout the process. From the beginning, I saw this as matchup...

...Nonstop Yacht Case Study Executive Summary This analysis was undertaken in an attempt to evaluate NonStop Yacht’s strategic direction in the Mega-Yacht industry due to the firm’s consistent inability to meet financial expectations.   This case focused its efforts on answering.   This poor financial performance has led the firm’s management to question whether or not a strategic alliance might be a beneficial alternative to their current business model.   To address the firm’s current quandary, this case has answered the following central question:   Should NSY strategically align with key industry players; or, would organic growth be a more beneficial option for generating the additional value needed to once again realign the company with both internal and external expectations? Analysis of the situation focused on three strategic issues found to be key in determining the firm’s strategic options:   NSY’s core competencies; their internal environment which encompasses the firms operations, structure and culture; and how the industry trend of consolidation might affect the firm’s positioning.   Based on a thorough analysis, it is recommended that NSY forgo an alliance with an industry player, instead focusing on organic growth.   This growth is recommended to first begin by reinvigorating their e-commerce approach.   NSY’s website must deliver on the value that was originally intended at the firms inception.   Second, it is recommended that NSY steadily grow their brick and...

...Case Study | Quantum Telecom Questions 1. How do we eliminate politics from gate review meetings? Gate review meetings are a form of project close. Gate review meeting could result in the closure of a life-cycle or the closure of the entire project. At each gate, the continuation of the process is decided by the project manager or a steering committee. The decision is based on the information available at the time, including the business case, risk analysis, and availability of necessary resources (e.g., money, people with correct competencies).  Politics exist in any life cycle phase of a project. Two or more people or a group of people is needed for a politics to occur. Politics in project management have positive impact and negative impact in a project management. Project manager using his political influence with project sponsor to get qualified resources needed or a high priority for the project could certainly lead to a positive outcome. Unfavorable outcomes occur when people play politics for more power, authority, control, or advancement opportunities. In gate review meeting, politics can influence in GO/NO-GO decision of project advancement. To eliminate or minimize politics in gate review meeting, committee sponsorship can be adopted to minimize the politics in gate review meeting. Committees are comprised of middle managers from marketing, R&D, and operations. The idea is that committee will be able to make decisions in the best interest of the company......

...CASE STUDY: STARBUCKS COFFEE BY: KATHLEEN LEE GRC 411 CASE STUDY: STARBUCKS Brief History: The first Starbucks location opened in 1971. The name is inspired by Moby Dick’s first mate. This name and the mermaid logo were inspired by the love of the sea, from Starbucks original location in Seattle Washington in the heart of Pike Place Market. Starting as a single shop specializing in high quality coffee and brewing products the company grew to be the largest roaster in Washington with multiple locations until the early 80’s. In 1981, current CEO Howard Schultz, recognized a great opportunity and began working with the founder Jerry Baldwin. After a trip to Italy to find new products, Schultz realized an opportunity to bring the café community environment he found in Italy to the United states and the Starbuck’s brand we know today began to take form. Selling espresso by the cup was the first test. Schultz left Baldwin to open his own Italian coffee house Il Giornale which found outrageous success and in 1987 when Starbucks decided to sell the original 6 locations, Schultz raised the money with investors and purchased the company and fused them with his Italian bistro locations. The company experienced rapid growth going public in 1992, and growing tenfold by 1997, with locations around the United States, Japan and Singapore. Starbucks also began expanding its brand. According to George Garza in his article The history of Starbucks the following product lines were......

That’s one of my primary communication tools with the rest of the enterprise. It’s a one-to-many communication, so it’s more efficient” Moeller uses the richest form of communication ―face-to-face― to communicate with direct reports. ―”Then I’ll start walking around and going to visit each of my direct reports…. I also have a meeting that lasts half an hour or an hour every morning” Moeller prepares for uncertainties and crises through flexibility. “I like to keep my schedule fairly open so that I can be in the moment with whatever the hot issue is—a customer problem or some opportunity.” Moeller practices open communication. ―”I also have an open-door policy, and my office tends to be a gathering place. …Everyone here knows that even if there are three people in here talking about something, you can come in and join in the meeting, too.” Moeller practices active listening and pays attention to body language. ―I just listen, engage, and remember what the salient points are. I find I’d miss certain nuances of the inflection in the voice, or body language.” 2. What comments by Moeller reflect ethical principles?

...Performance Management Case Study Natalie Perry 1. How would you proceed with the task of modifying the performance management process? I would develop directives and competencies for all the different staff that are involved in the day to day processes and resident care. Since most of the issues arose from the lack of teamwork skills, I would focus educating on team building activities. I would also asking the nursing staff to separate the CNAs into team groups and rotate them every week or so. There needs to be a way of ensuring that the contract professionals receive the same evaluations and performance appraisals. I would implement a plan that would dictate raises or incentives based on whether they complete the education. 2. What specific strategies do you think should be considered? I think that all performance reviews should be gone over with every employee; this will ensure that they understand their strengths and weaknesses within the organization. Also starting an employee self-appraisal could also help in identifying where employees see their own strengths. With starting a new performance process there needs to be a greater frequency in the evaluations to take note of how some of the changes are working out. 3. What obstacles do you see in the implementing your approach? How would you overcome these problems? As with change there will always be people who are resistant and the contract staff will probably try to avoid these new policies and......

Lecturers’ Competencies: a Case Study in International Universities

...This paper is submitted to & accepted in SEMILOKA NASIONAL “Better Management to Support Good Corporate Governance” Departemen Manajemen, Fakultas Ekonomi dan Manajemen, Institut Pertanian Bogor, September 16, 2006 LECTURERS’ COMPETENCIES: A CASE STUDY IN INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITIES Sam PD Anantadjaya ETC & Foundation, Bandung 40198, Indonesia Irma M. Nawangwulan English Tutorial Center, Bandung 40161, Indonesia Abstract The presence of well-known universities outside Indonesia has attracted significant interests, not only from Indonesian residents, but also from residents of other countries. Particularly, western universities are highly demanded and the competition is rather fierce when students attempt to register and take on the entrance tests. Only the top percentile of students seems to be accepted. Because of limitation in space and personnel, those western universities decided to expand their market base into developing countries by getting closer to their potential customers. International universities have become a new trend in Indonesia’s higher educational institutions. With the growing numbers of students applying into the international programs at various universities in Indonesia, it is apparent that Indonesians are more assertive to receive internationalized standards. Thus, matching consumer behaviors and expectations in the local market would be indispensable in trying to ensure the smooth......
