The Importance of Risk Management for Managers

March 21, 2015

Leck, H (2014). The Importance of Risk Management for Managers. Managerial Challenges of the Contemporary Society, 119-194

The purpose of the article was to explain the causes of accidents in the workplace and how does management deal with it. According to (Leck, 2014) “Accidents do not happen by themselves they are caused accidentally…” This statement is true but Leak wanted to dig deeper so he can understand the root cause of the accidents. It is always two sides to a story whether it is true or false but both sides deserve to be heard. Leak gave an example of a man driving a forklift and it tipped over because he ran over a stone. The question is what really caused the accident? Was it the stone or was the driver not paying close attention? This is a good example but this will be a never ending question. Leck researched 2 main theories regarding accident causes; what caused the accident and the deep-seated causes of the accident. For example, it could be that the stone caused the accident because it was too big for the driver to avoid. Maybe the driver was distracted and could not avoid the stone so he had to hit and in result the forklift tipped over. So that Leck can get to the bottom of the question, he researched and came up with basic models of accident. According to (Leck, 2014) “Basic model of accidents try to describe or explain how the critical event that caused the accident happened…There are five major models that try to explain how the critical event happens…” The injury causation model; this is due to a malfunction or error, occupational hygiene model; bad working environment, energy model; uncontrolled energy, change model; change in the work process and the ergonomic model; lack of compatibility. Each of these models explains the occurrence of…...

Summarizing the Medigap Plan

...Summarizing the Medigap Program Medicare Part A and Part B do not always cover all of medical services and/or treatments that the beneficiary may need. Because of the “gaps” that these plans do not cover, many individuals often purchase additional insurance such as Medigap insurance or insurance a previous employer provides. Medigap is private insurance that may cover unpaid amounts within the annual deductible, any coinsurance, and payment for non-covered services. Private insurers offer these Medigap plans but the federal and state law regulates coverage and standards. Policyholders must pay monthly premiums and may choose 1 of 10 plans. The monthly premiums and plans vary depending on the insurance company selected but a set core of benefits is common among all Medigap plans. Medigap coverage also eliminates the need for the practice to file separate claims because the carrier automatically forwards the claim to the payer and the provider is paid directly. (Valerius, Bayes, Newby, & Seggern, 2008) Based on the information in this week’s readings and looking over the suggested websites, I feel that the different plan offered through Medigap at the prices offered is fairly reasonable. Because of the many different plans offered, the policyholder can choose a plan that fits them both medically and financially. Depending on the monthly premium the insured pays, Medigap covering certain expenses such as a long hospital stay, could save an individual a lot of money.......

Summarizing the Medigap Program

...  Summarizing the Medigap Program Medicare Parts A and B do not cover everything for patients who have it. Medigap fills in these “gaps” in coverage. Some people would certainly benefit by purchasing a Medigap policy. A Medigap policy can help its holders pay for their deductibles and co-pays for Medicare Parts and B. Some other services, like medications and emergency care while traveling in foreign countries, may be covered by Medigap policies. Based on my understanding of the Medigap program, I believe it meets consumers’ needs quite well. For people who are unable to meet the additional costs of co-pays, deductibles, and medications, this program can help. After reading the material from the American Diabetes Association (n.d.), the plans’ costs seems to be fair, taking into consideration the limits and benefits each plan offers. For example, if a person paid a co- pay for a hospital stay and did not have a Medigap policy, that person’s expense would be higher than themonthly premium for Medigap. If an individual does not need to visit the doctor frequently, has fairly good health and anticipates remaining healthy, choosing to pay an occasional co- pay may wind up being a better financial decision than paying a monthly premium. One implication from having a government insurance program and a private insurance company in association with each other is the services that are not and are covered by each. People who have private insurance as well as government insurance will...

Sds-Page

...SDS-PAGE also called sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis is a technique used to separate proteins only by their size. SDS or sodium dodecyl sulfate is a detergent used to denature the proteins; they will unfold and will not have any secondary, tertiary or quaternary structure. Proteins will have a negative charge and they will move down the gel by their molecular weight. PAGE or polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis is a polymer of the neurotoxin acrylamide and a cross-linking agent called bis-acrylamide. Usually APS and TEMED are used as catalysts for the process of cross-linking. There are two different settings of running the polyacrylamide gel, denaturing gel and non-denaturing gel or native gel. Denaturing gel consists of using urea or SDS to denature or unfold proteins and subsequently separate them by their molecular weight. A non-denaturing or native gel is used primarily to analyze the tertiary and quaternary structure of proteins; therefore they do not need to be unfolded. SDS-PAGE is essential in protein analysis in different fields such as forensic, biochemistry, biotechnology, molecular biology and genetics. The SDS-PAGE gel has to be poured in two parts. The first gel that is poured is the resolving gel. This type of gel consists of 3 to 30 % acrylamide thus possessing small pores and a pH of 8.8. The second gel is called the stacking gel and it is poured on top of the resolving gel. Stacking gel has 8 to 12 % acrylamide,......

Summarizing and Presenting Data

...Summarizing and Presenting Data QNT / 351 Summarizing and Presenting Data In both employee surveys BIMS used all three levels of measurement to analyze the data collected. In reviewing the findings from the employee survey, the ultimate goal was to get the overall census of the employees on the survey questions. These survey questions were engineered to evaluate the satisfaction level of the employees at BIMS and to reveal the underlying issues and continuous concerns that were causing the high turnover and low morale at BIMS. The interval level of measurement was used to display the employee’s length of employment and a numeric code was used to describe the nominal, ordinal and interval data. Descriptive statistics was used to show the mean, median, mode and central tendency of the data. An analysis of each survey question was broken down and the interpretation displayed on tables, charts and graphs. These graphs give an overall visual description of the answers to each question. After all the data had been analyzed, displayed, and interpreted, the outcome shows that BIMS was experiencing high turnover due to low pay and lack of communication within the organization. Descriptive Analysis The intention of descriptive analysis is provide a clear understanding through the use of graphical and numerical visual of the patterns and unique trends in the data set of interest. The inferences made through these resources will provide valuable information for the......

...Summarizing and Presenting Data QNT/351 Ballard Integrated Managed Services, Inc. Data Collection- Part One Ballard Integrated Managed Services, Inc., (BIMS) is an organization that provides food and accommodations for their employees, the patients at Douglas Medical Center, along with other large companies. A change in the company has been taking place and trending towards many employees leaving for other employment opportunities. The turnover rate for BIMS is normally in the range of 55 to 60%, however, for the past few months it has increased to 64%. What is causing the turnover rate to increase and the moral across the organization to decrease? If management puts an emphasis on the employees and their training, will the turnover rate improve? Overview Barbra has noticed several other behaviors lately which appear to be a symptom of a deeper problem, but has been unable to determine the root cause of a climbing turnover rate and the overall decline in morale. In effort to discover the cause within the organization, a survey was administered. Unfortunately, the survey did not provide the results or guidance for management to lead the team in a direction that would change the culture of the organization or the way the employees at BIMS feel about their experiences at BIMS. If management continues to look only at the symptoms of the problem, the root cause will continue to exist and deteriorate the culture further. Debbie Horner, the HR manager developed and......

An innovate leader is one who develops both vision and strategy, sets up processes to materialize it, and creates an organizational culture that helps to facilitate the creation of ideas and implementation (Bel, 2010). Larry Page has done this as co-founder and continues to innovate as the CEO of Google. Page consistently pushes the envelope at Google, encouraging ideas that most would deem unthinkable. The role of an innovative leader is to inspire by generating ideas, vision, strategy and design, and building the organizational structure, culture, and processes that support them (Bel, 2010). Innovative leaders have the ability to recognize opportunities and develop them, something Page has succeeded at doing at Google.

Web Page

...Being able to create a web page is an interesting development. In the beginning, researching which tutorials to use for this project seemed a little difficult for deciding which ones to use. There are numerous tutorials out there but only a few of them include specific tutorials and examples on how you can create a web page step by step. The main one that I used was a site named, Page Tutor which goes over each step on how to create your own page. I enjoyed using this site as my main resource to creating my web page because it gave specific examples as well as pictures revealing how the page will look on the internet with using certain codes. The process with creating my web page was not too difficult. In previous semesters, I’ve taken courses related to Web Development and Flash. They were interesting classes and while working on this project it brought back some of the things I’ve learned from those classes. A few things I had forgotten but overall I had fun while working on this web page. The coding was not too hard to grasp but it reminded me how easily you can make a mistake. Some of the mistakes I stumbled upon were not closing brackets or misspelling some of the coding on my page. This can take some time to realize what mistakes you’ve made which I spent quite some time looking over. This was an exciting and interesting project to work on. Hopefully in the future, I will continue with Web Development since it’s a stimulating process....

Summarizing and Presenting Data

...Summarizing and Presenting Data University of Phoenix Quantitative Analysis for Business QNT/351 June 02, 2014 Summarizing and Presenting Data At Ballard Integrated Managed Services (BIMS), we pride ourselves on providing excellent services to our business partners and offering excellent employment opportunities. This is why Barbara Tucker, the general manager for BIMS at Douglas Medical Center, has grown concerned over a recent increase in employee turnover rates. The employee turnover rate has increased from annual averages of 55%-60%, which correlates with other local area businesses, up to its current peak of 64%. Barbara believes that the increased turnover rate among BIMS employees is due to an overall decrease in morale. In an attempt to identify the contributing factors of this problem and offer insight to a possible solution, an anonymous non-mandatory survey was administered to each of its 449 employees. Out of the 449 employees, only 78 completed the survey. In this report, several key factors will be discussed as to why employee morale is low and turnover rates high. Recommendations for a solution to the problems and ways to increase employee participation with surveys moving forward will be addressed. The data collected from the surveys issued to employees indicate that the increase in turnover rates is directly related to low morale among the staff. Some of the more concerning answers were from questions six and nine, which revealed negative......

Larry Page

...http://larrypage.weebly.com/ Background You always hear stories about people who knew what they wanted to do with their life the second they started living. Larry Page was, and still is, one of those people. Since the tender age of 12, Page knew that one day he would start his own business. Of course, the elements contributing to this decision began at a much younger age than twelve. One would say that the love of inventing things ran in the family. Page's parents, Gloria and Carl Page, were two highly talented and intelligent computer science professors at the University of Michigan. While other six years olds were off playing sports and collecting baseball cards, Page took great interest in dismantling items in his house to "see how it worked". When asked about his childhood, Page commented "(there were) computers and Popular Science magazines everywhere". From this quote, it is quite evident that there was something unusual about Page from a very young age. Page moved on to become the first kid at his school to turn in an assignment from a word processor. One of his first inventions was an inkject printer made entirely from LEGO bricks. As Page grew older, he decided not to put his talent of inventing items to waste, and became interested in the world of business. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in computer engineering from the University of State Michigan and a Master of Science in computer science from Stanford University. He graduated from both schools with......

The most significant recent signal had been the Caplan Report. This report, developed by a committee chaired by the Hon. Elinor Caplan, had been commissioned by the Ontario Minister of Health and Long-Term Care and was aimed at reviewing and improving the bidding and delivery process among home care service providers. In summarizing the report, Elinor Caplan had said, “I believe the focus [for home care] should be on well-managed procurement where competition is for quality first and price, second.”3 The report included numerous recommendations for significant change. Clerici had mixed feelings about the report. On one side, she was very happy to know that government, the main funder of the CTG’s services, was expressing more concern with the quality of home care.

Use the reference to create an appropriate APA-formatted, in-text citation. Aggressive driving is characterized by the tendency to view driving as a competition rather than as a means of getting from one place to another. Although most drivers are content to move along with the flow of traffic, aggressive drivers weave from lane to lane, seeking any advantage that will place them ahead of others. Aggressive drivers are also more likely to tailgate and honk the horn in an effort to intimidate other drivers or simply to move them along faster. When confronted with heavy traffic, aggressive drivers often engage in dangerous behavior such as passing on the right, using utility or turn lanes as driving lanes, and ignoring traffic signals. Paradoxically, aggressive drivers often pride themselves on their skill. They see other, more cautious drivers as the problem, not themselves. Reference: Arlov, P. (2007).
