...Task 2 Financial and Leadership Strengths and Weaknesses of the Utah Symphony The financial strengths of the Utah Symphony will now be addressed. One financial strength of the Symphony is the amount of endowments it receives. There are two groups, I and II, which receive endowments. The Utah symphony is in group II and that group gets an average of $8.8 Million per year (Delong & Ager, 2005, p. 4). Another major strength would be the amount of revenue brought in by performances. The 2000-2001 season saw revenue at over $3 million and the projected amount for the next season is over $4 million. The total amount between contribution, endowments, and revenue is over $12 million for the 2000-2001 season and is projected to be over $13 million for the next (Delong & Ager, 2005, p. 15). The financial weaknesses for the Symphony are almost as much as the strengths however. The major weakness in this organization is the salaries and benefits for the musicians. Because they are under contract, the musicians have a set salary with periodic increases. The expense for this is over $10 million (Delong & Ager, 2005, p. 15). This ends up being a huge expense and leaves very little in the way of profit. Another item that adds to the financial weakness is the fact that ticket prices are projected to only increase by 1% while expenses are expected to increase by at least 2.5% (Delong & Ager, 2005). With expenses increasing by a greater rate than income, this will have a detrimental effect...

...The main thing to consider in all of these aspects would be the trends in healthcare. What are other organizations doing? This summary will take a look at the advantages and disadvantages of building, leasing or renting a new facility for the orthopedic line at Trinity Community Hospital. Hospital construction, like most other construction, continues to struggle to recover from the years of economic hardship. Advantages 1. Building- 5,000 sq. feet PT center- $120 per sq. foot- $600,000 The facility would be new and the hospital would have complete control over the design of the expansion. This would give us access the also make modification without approval from any outside parties. With this process the hospital would be able to make energy efficient modifications that might be present in the current facility. These processes would be able to save the hospital on operating cost and set a leading role for healthcare facilities that are going “green”. Building a new facility would help increase in value which would also in turn increase the equity of the hospital. The hospital will also have the ability of leasing any extra space which would build revenue. 2. Leasing- 5000 sq. foot MOB adjacent to hospital-$20 per sq. foot With leasing, the hospital would not have to risk any investment losses that might occur when building or buying a facility. ***One major advantage to this is that there is not as much cash needed up front in order to occupy the space. ......

...Running Head: Children's Literature Task 1 1 Children;s Literature Task 1 Arthur Carroll Western Governor's University Children's Literature Task 1 2 Children's Literature Task 1 It is well known that the world is filled to the brim with a rich history in athletics, education, science, politics, and the arts. What is not common knowledge is the history and richness of children's literature and how it eventually became what it is today. Just like most things, what we now know as children's literature is nothing like what it was originally, it has transformed into something else entirely. Nonetheless, it has as colorful a history as it does some of it's own books. Before children's literature was ever even written down it was given to children in a less tangible way; orally. Prior to publishers like Scholastic and Golden Books existence, the technology to write books was long and tedious, especially if the author was trying to make many copies. So instead, children's literature was told out loud where many could hear it at once and the time factor for preparation was at a minimum. Once authors had better technology to help simplify the process of physical writing, oral literature transformed into written literature. It wasn't always computers or even typewriters though, written used to literally mean written. Like the transformation from mouth to pen, pen evolved to......

Walmart and Sam’s club have been able to produce large warehouse type stores in 4203 locations in the US alone and 6107 outside the US in countries like: Brazil, Argentina, Canada, Chile, China, India, Japan and Mexico. (Walmart 10-K) They have truly become a worldwide company. But what about those people who aren’t near a Walmart…there is an online store that a person can access. Most of Walmart’s products are available on their online store and they offer free shipping on orders over $50 (Alaska and Hawaii excluded). One of the things that are often overlooked when discussing Place, is how that place will be ran. Walmart and Sam’s Club employs over 2.1 Million people throughout their company and 1% of the total workforce in the US (Business Insider, 2014) Price Here is the number one topic that people immediately think about when they go shopping…what is it going to cost me? When a business sells a product they have to think, “What is the product worth to their customers?” Walmart has successfully come up with a great marketing strategy that would have put all the other businesses out of work if they didn’t do the same, they even implemented in into their Sam’s club stores. In 2004, Walmart introduced “Price match guarantee”. Walmart and Sam’s would match any advertised price from their competitors. This completely changed the way that they had to price their products.

...acids would be that of flaxseeds. Flaxseeds are high in omega three fats and lower in caloric value making it very easy to fit in our daily diets. Walnuts, Sardines, Salmon, Cauliflower, Tofu, and Shrimp are some other sources of Omega three fatty acids; the list is remarkable, which makes it easy to obtain in our daily diets. ("Omega three fatty acids") Question: How much of omega three fatty acids should I take if I have heart disease? Answer: The American Heart Association recommends that people who have coronary heart disease or that are a high risk of coronary artery disease eat a variety of oily fish at least two times per week. Two servings of oily fish provide 500mg of omega three fatty acids. It is documented that 1000 mg or 1 gram of omega three fatty acids should be consumed by either eating cooked oily fish or by supplementing with a high quality fish oil. Should you need to lower your triglycerides and bad cholesterol it is then recommended to consume anywhere from 2-4 grams daily. Of course always check with your physician first. (“Omega 3 Fatty Acids”). Question: How can I tell if I may be deficient in Omega three fatty acids or any essential fatty acid really? Answer: That is a great question! Most of us are, due to our diets and how easy it is to consume processed foods now a day. Some signs that speak volumes are depression and anxiety, chronic inflammation and joint pain, obesity, dry skin, dry eyes, mood swings, learning disabilities,......

Task 1

...1. Bill Bailey could use Maslow’s theory of motivation in order to show support of the merger by appealing to people’s most pressing needs within the Utah Opera Organization. (Krietner, 2010) People ultimately react in a way that serves their own needs and aspirations. Bill Bailey would need to tap into those needs in order to make sure the merger goes as smoothly as possible. The first need that would have to be satisfied would be the physiological which would include hunger and sleep. In this setting Bill Bailey would need to make sure that these people had sufficient wages to live on and would continue to be working in acceptable conditions. Once this need has been met an individual would then be concerned with their safety and security. The staff of the Utah Opera Organization would need to know that their jobs were safe and would not be lost in the merger. If there is a constant threat of job loss the staff is under a lot of stress to try and maintain their position in the company. The next concern would be an individual’s sense of belonging. They would want to know that they will still belong to the group and were accepted in the group. If the merger were to take place I believe it would be important to let the staff know about the merger and all what would be taking place as the merger progressed. After the staff has a feeling of belonging they will be motivated by a desire for esteem. They would need to feel and be recognized that they have some value. ......

...Utah Opera & Symphony Merger JFT2 Organizational Management ~ Task 1 Western Governors University January 22, 2012 THEORY OF MOTIVATION In order to support the merger, Bill Bailey needs to address his subordinates with the merger in a supportive way. The Utah Opera Organization and the Utah Symphony are both dealing with surmountable obstacles in regards to the survival of the arts. It would be beneficial in the long run, for the future of the arts to stand as one mighty organization rather than two separate entities. There has always been strength in numbers. Bill Bailey can support the merger using McClellard’s Need Theory. The merger will give the Opera a chance to overcome their current issues with finances and production. The need for achievement which indicates a desire to accomplish something difficult is a prime example of why the merger should be supported. (Kreitner, 2008). The Opera is under pending stress and without the merger the Opera may not survive in the long run. With the merger the Opera will have a better chance of success and achievement. The merger will also increase the affiliations the Opera currently has. Social relationships are fundamental for the success of the merge. These relationships will help ensure the future success of the merge. The merger also brings the opportunity to teach and encourage each member from the other company. The merge will bring new goals to help achieve optimal success. ......
