HIS 415 DeVry Week 1 Homework
NOTE: The basic directions that apply to all the written assignments are available in Doc Sharing.
Although the Viet people have a long history, our course begins in the 19th century with Vietnam as part of a larger area called French Indochina, a colony of France. The colonization took decades, but for our purposes the process of French control was complete in 1893.
Many nations of historic significance matured to the point where they sent out colonial settlers to faraway lands and over time eventually extended dominion over those lands. The United States also came into possession of faraway territories but without the same process of sending talented citizens to those lands with an agenda of establishing domination over them or of establishing an empire.
Your assignment is to write a short paper of two or three double-spaced pages on the topic listed below. Follow the directions carefully, and for this first week also explain carefully what you are saying.
The Week 1 Topic: Explain why it is both necessary and helpful to study the context of prior history, especially the experiences of participants in that history, in order to understand what is valued by these participants. Also, what resources will be most helpful to you as a student of history?

Westerners Reading Overseas History (graded)
Most people, most of the time, know their own national history better than they know that of other nations, even their neighboring nations. Even though we know our own history better than that of others, we often learned it during our secondary education through factual information about dates, places, and leading personalities.
The study of history is much more than memorizing sets of facts and inferences based on facts. The boundary of what constitutes history is a vague one, and it is driven by the broad or narrow viewpoint that is chosen by authors. Every author has a viewpoint, and the authors are motivated to research and write by considerations that are often not made known but which are operating nonetheless. The boundary also intersects a great many academic disciplines to establish the context in which the facts occur and the factors operate.
As viewpoints drive authors, so our own viewpoints drive our work as readers and discoverers. As people of “the West,” our perspective is limited by our own experience of living in our own time and place –limits known individually as persons, and collectively as citizens of nations. We discover just how foreign we are as Westerners when we venture across boundaries of time, distance, culture, and language to learn about what happened overseas. What a telling word “overseas” is!

NOTE: The basic directions that apply to all the written assignments are available in Doc Sharing.
Although the Viet people have a long history, our course begins in the 19th century with Vietnam as part of a larger area called French Indochina, a colony of France. The colonization took decades, but for our purposes the process of French control was complete in 1893.
Many nations of historic significance matured to the point where they sent out colonial settlers to faraway lands and over time eventually extended dominion over those lands. The United States also came into possession of faraway territories but without the same process of sending talented citizens to those lands with an agenda of establishing domination over them or of establishing an empire.
Your assignment is to write a short paper of two or three double-spaced pages on the topic listed below. Follow the directions carefully, and for this first week also explain carefully what you are saying.

Why, in Vietnam, was personal leadership so very important? Refer to specific examples.
2. Given the emerging role of the United States in mid-20th century world affairs as described on the online textbook, what evaluation can be made of the leadership styles Presidents Dwight Eisenhower and John Kennedy that made them effective or inhibited their effectiveness? Why in the United States is the direct leadership of the President so very important?

While history often appears to be a continuous stream of events and decisions, there are some that are so dramatic that historians sometimes call them “turning points.” Sometimes the term “tipping points” is also used. These are the moments when the whole future of events hangs in the balance.
There were several such turning points in this week’s readings and discussions: the Buddhist riots of 1963, the coup d’etat against Diem in 1963, the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963, the attack on USS MADDOX in 1964, the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution of 1964, and the 1964 presidential elections.

NOTE: The basic directions that apply to all the written assignments are available in Doc Sharing.
Conventional wars fought on the European models developed by Napoleon involve the leadership in writing and training troops for rules of engagement (ROE). Having ROE has brought both benefits and costs, and broadly training ROE at every level of leadership right down to the foot soldiers allows every participant to make responsible decisions and accomplish the mission as the battlefield commander has declared it. ROE is a management tool with benefits to keep situations under control and aligned with the mission. And yet the ROE in General Westmoreland's command placed precise limits on what could be done and how it could be done.
The chain of command links everybody in uniformed service to those both senior and junior to them, all the way from the most junior ranks up to the President of the United States. There are a great many levels, but for this assignment we are looking at only six levels.

This is the first of two written assignments that will deal with the lessons to be learned from the American experience of the Vietnam War. This assignment deals specifically with military lessons learned.
By your own orientation to cooperative work in a mission-driven organization like the armed forces, do you consider yourself to be a strategic thinker, a tactical planner, or a logistician? How do you determine that, and how does your own daily life and work demonstrate that?
Then, with your own understanding of what cooperation and support you need from others involved, what do you need from others in their roles to accomplish your own work successfully?
Finally, what strictly military lessons have you learned from the course so far that would help you accomplish your mission more effectively?

This written assignment deals with the lessons to be learned by the American experience of the Vietnam War.
This assignment deals with lessons learned in different arenas: diplomatic negotiations, presidential leadership, and cultural/social contexts.
With your historian's hat on, briefly write the single most significant lesson you have learned for each of the three areas given above, with reference to what you have learned in the textbook for the whole course to date.
Because there are so many lessons to write in the narrow space of this assignment's page limit, brevity is important. Write with precision, and limit yourself to a well-developed paragraph for each lesson. There is nothing like a limit of space to make you get to the point! The size limit of this assignment remains, like the others in this course, two to three pages double-spaced.

Scientific Revolution (graded)
Prior to the scientific revolution, the earth was viewed by most people to be the center of the universe, medicine consisted of a balance of certain fluids or humors of the body, and bodies were thought to rise because they were heavenly bodies. Then, Copernicus became convinced that the sun was the center of the universe. Kepler, using Tycho’s precise observations and calculations, discovered three basic laws of planetary motion and provided mathematical proof that Copernicus was correct that the sun was the center of our universe. Newton discovered three laws of motion and was able to explain gravity.
How might the discoveries of Copernicus, Kepler, Newton, or one of the other scientists described in chapter 17, have impacted people’s view of the absolute systems of government, the divine right of kings, of people’s views of the Protestant or Catholic Churches? Look for metaphors, for example, between the supposed perfection of the heavenly bodies and the realities discovered by the scientists in this chapter

Evolution of Healthcare (graded)
In this first thread, we will explore the healthcare system in the United States (US). As you will learn by reading chapter 11 in Sayles' textbook, healthcare services have evolved over the years and the US has become one of the world leaders in healthcare technologies. Yet, we face various challenges in terms of access, cost, and quality. Learning about healthcare system in general is important for a health information professional for many reasons:
1. We work in healthcare, so we need to know our work environment and adapt accordingly;
2. Many HIT and coding practices vary depending on the type of healthcare setting;
3. Learning about the healthcare system helps you understand the big picture and the impact of health information technology in patient care;
4. General knowledge about healthcare systems along with HIT or coding specialization prepares you to move up the ladder and advance your career.
In starting this topic, identify and elaborate on some of the healthcare challenges. In your responses, reflect on your textbook readings as well as any other literature and your experiences.

HIT 120 DeVry Week 1 Discussion 1
Evolution of Healthcare (graded)
In this first thread, we will explore the healthcare system in the United States (US). As you will learn by reading chapter 11 in Sayles' textbook, healthcare services have evolved over the years and the US has become one of the world leaders in healthcare technologies. Yet, we face various challenges in terms of access, cost, and quality. Learning about healthcare system in general is important for a health information professional for many reasons:
1. We work in healthcare, so we need to know our work environment and adapt accordingly;
2. Many HIT and coding practices vary depending on the type of healthcare setting;
3. Learning about the healthcare system helps you understand the big picture and the impact of health information technology in patient care;
4. General knowledge about healthcare systems along with HIT or coding specialization prepares you to move up the ladder and advance your career.

Scenario
You are standing by the loading dock with sweat dripping down your brow. As dozens of trucks and other vehicles line up for what seems like miles in the distance. As the sun continued to beat down on the loading dock, the union representatives begin to exchange words with you about who has had the jurisdiction of work. Finally, you glanced at your watch and realized that the loads-in for the event was running two hours behind schedule, thus incurring thousands of dollars in overtime charges. And this was only the beginning of trials for the trade show. Once the doors to the exhibition opened, hundreds of buyers streamed in and promptly clogged the aisles on one side of the exhibit floor. For nearly four hours, buyers virtually ignored exhibitors on the other side of the exhibit floor. A few minutes after the exhibition began. Several exhibitors complained to you that the other exhibitors were playing loud music and stepping into the aisles to bring people into their booths.

Scenario, Your Role, Key Players
Sometimes an event has many planners and organizers. This is true in the case of this year's graduation luncheon for a graduate program. Each year for the past three years, a graduate school at a small regional university held an event for its winter graduates. There is a luncheon on campus to recognize the graduates, give them a chance to assemble, and present them with a small gift as they continue their lives beyond the university. However, because of an unclear organizational chart, this led to miscommunications and dropped balls in managing this event. When the structure of the planning group is unclear or unknown, as it was in this case, important details such as the nomination of a graduation speaker can be missed.

Cooper Pearson Sports Marketing
Scenario Summary:
Cooper-Pearson is a very successful sports-marketing company with 75 employees. It has been in existence for 10 years, and it clearly has a bright future. One of the fundamental reasons for Cooper-Pearson’s phenomenal growth has been an investment in selecting the best and brightest men and women from colleges and universities throughout the United States and paying them well. Cooper-Pearson Sports Marketing has noticed that, in the past 2 years, 15 key senior employees have left the firm. Many of these men and women have joined Always on the Ball Sports Marketing Company, a competitor of Cooper-Pearson. During the exit interviews, one of the reasons that was consistently mentioned as a reason for leaving was the lack of adequate or affordable medical insurance.
Cooper-Pearson Sports Marketing managers have come to understand that a competitive compensation package must include medical benefits that employees want and can afford. They also understand that medical insurance has become an important recruitment tool in attracting quality employees. Like the company, quality coverage is extremely important, but so is cost.

Scenario Summary
Carol Fern has been employed by Bainbridge Borough for 18 years as a tax clerk. The tax clerk position is part of the bargaining unit represented by Local 10 of the American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees (AFSCME). When Carol and her husband found out that she was unable to conceive, they decided to adopt a child. The Ferns were notified on April 22 that a 3-month-old baby girl was available and they could adopt her in three days. However, Carol told the adoption agency that she thought it was unfair to leave the company on such short notice because April was a busy tax season. Adoption was delayed until May 2. On April 27, Carol requested two weeks of paid vacation for May 2 to May 17. This request was granted. The day before she was to return from her paid vacation, Carol asked for 6 months of unpaid maternity leave. The request had to be approved by the Bainbridge Borough Council, which rejected the request by a 4-3 vote. However, the council did offer Carol two consecutive 90-day reasonable purpose leaves (amounting to 6 months of leave).

Using the template provided in DocSharing (using this form is required), create a list of ten (10) structured interview questions and submit it to your Dropbox by the end of Week 5using the following guidelines:
• Your original questions (e.g. written by you) should only contain legally allowable, job related inquiries. Act as if the organization you are working for is obligated under Title VII and the other major, federal employment laws when writing these questions.
• A brief rationale for each question must be included (e.g. why this question is important; what type of information you are hoping to elicit from the candidate with the question).
• Students are encouraged to include behavioral interview questions.
• You should not provide a sample answer for each question: only the question and rationale are needed.
• Include the position title and compose a brief (3 to 5 sentences) description of the job for which the questions relate.
• Please note that questions typically found on an application form (e.g. "Are you at least 18 years or older," "Are you legally authorized to work in this country,") are NOT interview questions and should not be used.
• Create questions that you think would especially support identifying the KSAs of the candidates for this position. Think about what the KSAs would be for the job you selected, as well as some of the duties that come to mind.

Application Form Assignment Latest
You are the new HR manager for this fictitious (private sector) company, which has hundreds of employees and is clearly obligated under Title VII and other major employment regulations. Rather than starting over from scratch with a brand new application form, many HR managers would likely take a look at the existing form first.
Using the table located at the very bottom of this document, identify the ten (10) items that are legally problematic* on this employment application form, why they are problematic, and what could possibly be in their place, if applicable. Use of the table is required.
When you are done “save” or “save as” this document with your last name, then first initial and assignment name (e.g. SmithLApplForm.docx) and place your name in the table box above. Then load it to your Dropbox by end of Week 6.
Please email your instructor if you have any questions.
*By problematic we are looking for possible violations of various employment regulations. Note that some may not be blatantly illegal, but, rather problematic and best to avoid as a best practice.
One final tip: Do not focus on stylist elements such as the layout of the application form or questions you do not “like.” Focus only on the legally problematic items.

The course project relates to the compensation and benefit strategy of an organization. Students will select an organization that is experiencing challenges with its compensation and/or benefit program. Some examples where challenges exist within the organization's compensation and benefit plan could include a high rate of employee turnover, an inability to recruit talented employees due to lack of proper compensation, an inability to fund an adequate benefit program, an incentive program where few employees reach their objectives, an inadequately funded retirement system, or a retirement plan that does not offer proper investment choices. Your paper will be graded according to how well you meet the tasks below.
1. Follow proper APA style/citations, grammar and punctuation, and so on. An APA tutorial is located on the HUB for assistance.
2. Identify an organization with compensation or benefits challenges. It could be an organization with which you are familiar personally or through the media.
3. Provide a detailed review of the compensation and/or benefit challenge (problem) at the organization. It is recommended that you concentrate on the principle compensation and/or benefit challenge(s) within a single organization, rather than a number of less important issues. Be careful to avoid selecting a topic that is too broad. At the same time, the challenge facing the organization should be broad enough to provide multiple strategies to help resolve the problem.

1. (TCO A) You are the new leader of the local union at your company. There are many new employees who have joined the union in the past year, and they have questions about the way union membership works. These new employees are not sure about how to be in the union and still interact with the boss. It seems to some of them that in their non-union jobs, they would just say and do what it took to get their questions answered, and they did not see much difference between themselves and the boss. Others want to run to the union steward every time the boss says something they don t like. The questions involve management rights and employee rights. Your job is to develop a summary sheet which lists the content for a union meeting. Your summary should include the basics of how unions operate and specifics on management rights and employee rights in the union environment. (Points : 34)
2. (TCO B) There are a number of social, economic, and business factors that are either helping or slowing down the development of the union movement. Describe the changes in the political climate that have helped or hindered growth of unions. Identify key legislation that has changed the way in which unions or companies operate in a union setting.

Pick two companies which have undergone some type of fairly substantial change in the recent past. Find the company and the change information online, using EBSCO, or using a company’s case described somewhere in our textbook. (See page 388 of the textbook index for page numbers and names of each of the cases described in the textbook.) Other ways to find information: utilize Google or Yahoo Finance, or Reuters, and look up Annual Reports of companies which interest you. Often reading the first sections of these reports (i.e. letters from CEO’s) will give you ideas about changes they have gone through in the past year(s).

(Diagnosing the Change)
Select a Diagnostic Model (see Chapter Five) that you utilize to review aspects of change activities and actions that have been taken by the companies chosen. Here we are looking at the “parts” of the companies as well as their strategies, as surmised by your research in Part 1. It is acknowledged that this information will not be complete, as you are looking at these companies as an outsider; but a thoroughly researched paper will give enough data to allow some (well-defended) assumptions on your part.
Here’s what to do:
1. Choose one Diagnostic Model (i.e. 6-box, 7S, congruence, or etc.) to apply to the two chosen companies. Choose the model which you feel best identifies and measures the relevant aspects of the organization’s performance and therefore the diagnostic choices made will affect your findings.
2. Apply the data obtained in your research through an analysis of the appropriate chosen model. This will allow you to create a diagnosis of where each company is today (as per the criteria of the model).

(Communicating the Change)
An important part of any change project is how the change is communicated to the organization, to the change agents, to the line workers, to the customers, and to the public. Along with media relations issues, communicating change (especially in a publicly traded company) can involve multiple legal and regulatory aspects, as well as personnel and management concerns. Perhaps the single most difficult piece of handling Kotter’s “establish a sense of urgency” is that too many inexperienced or immature change agents read this to mean “panic the troops.” Never do this.
This project piece will have 3 parts:
1. The main part of your project this week will ask you to pick ONE of the company’s change plan, and develop a communication plan for the company. This plan should be submitted by using an excel spreadsheet, setting out the Stakeholders, the timeline of the communication plan, the method of communication, the rationale for why you chose this method of communication, the purpose of the communication and identifying “who” will do the communicating. The grid for this project can be found in doc-sharing, entitled “Grid for Week 6 – Communication Plan.”

List of all of your references you used in the project to date (you should have at least 12 at this point) and create an annotated bibliography. Basically, for this assignment, you will use your reference list, in alphabetical order, and provide a 2-4 sentence summary (brief!!) of what that reference said. This is a summary style document! Your grade will be based on your ability to BRIEFLY summarize the important points in the document as well as the strength of your reference materials. (i.e. if you used mainly low-level reference documents like encyclopedias, online dictionaries, anonymous articles, etc. this will negatively impact your grade.)
1. Use of at least 12 references, properly annotated: 24 points (roughly 2 points each)
2. Strength of references overall: 6 points (roughly .5 points each.)
