The Printing Opportunity
Rose Johnson owns a small printing business. She believes that the big tourism attraction on the outskirts of town must have some printing needs she could meet. One day, on the way back from delivering an order to a client, Rose stopped in at the administration office and asked who made the decisions about print advertising and if she could get the person’s best contact details. She was told it was Collin Downs and was given his mailing address.
Rose needs to write a letter to Collin explaining what she could do to help him—brochures, newsletters, site maps, place mats for the dining room, etc.—and how quickly they could get them printed.
Imagine you are Rose. Write a letter to Collin introducing yourself, your business and explaining how you can help him. Remember WIFM. Produce the letter in the appropriate format.

The Unhappy Customer
Success Labs mandates that all customer service contacts demonstrate the company’s position, values and value-added service; however, they have been getting a few complaints about one of the webinar speakers for -12 Steps to Sell Online-.

To whom it may concern:
I purchased access to the webinar -12 Steps to Sell Online- on January 20th. I was greatly disappointed with the quality of the presentation and the skills of the presenter. The speaker was crass, condescending and borderline rude. He assumed those his audience were idiots and communicated as much with his off-hand comments. You should really rethink who you have present on behalf of your organisation. I am so disgusted that I would not only like a refund for this webinar, but I also want to close my Success Labs membership and want a refund on that as well.

 Marker:UOW HARVARD REFERENCING STYLE Why Reference? Referencing is the process of linking what you read with what you write. It is important to reference all your sources: * To enable you or someone else to find the source of your information easily * To avoid plagiarism by acknowledging that you’ve used the ideas and work of others * To strengthen your arguments and add credibility by referring to expert ideas There are several styles of referencing. The Harvard format is utilised by many universities and schools. About the Harvard style of Referencing The Harvard referencing style is also known as the author date system because of the requirement to cite both the author and publication date within in your paper. The prominence of the author and date of publication in a reference list provides a clear indication of the credibility and currency of the resources used in your research. There is no definitive version of Harvard available. The UOW style of referencing is based on the AGPS Harvard version: Style manual for authors, editors and printers 2002, 6th edn, John Wiley, Milton, Qld. The UOW Harvard Referencing Style has two main components: In-text references/citations When you refer to another author’s work in your writing you must cite your source in the body of your paper by providing the last name(s) of the author(s), the year of publication and, where applicable, page number(s). The reference list A list at the end of your assignment which includes full details of each source you have cited in your writing. Sources are listed in alphabetical order by the author’s last name. In-text Referencing There are two main ways to present in-text references, or citations: 1. Information prominent Where the focus is on the information from your source. You give prominence to the information by placing the reference at the end of your sentence in brackets. For example, “the Nuer of southern Sudan lacked any…” (Metcalf 2005, p. 184) “The experience of …” (Savage, Bagnall & Longhurst 2005, p. 28) 2. Author prominent Where the focus is on the author(s) of your source. You give prominence to the author by placing the reference in the body of your sentence, with the author’s name incorporated into the sentence structure and the date in brackets For example, Metcalf (2005, p. 184) claims that “the Nuer of southern Sudan lacked any institutions of governance; no chiefs or councils of elders, no armies or law enforcement” Savage, Bagnall and Longhurst (2005, p. 28) argue that “…” NOTES * Page Numbers Always include page numbers when you: * Quote word for word * Summarise or paraphrase an idea from a specific page or pages * Refer to tables, figures, images or present specific information like dates/statistics. * Quotation Marks The Harvard (AGPS) and Footnoting (Oxford) manual recommends using SINGLE quotation marks around any direct quote. If you use Turnitin, be sure to enclose all direct quotes in DOUBLE quotation marks because Turnitin recognises only the text enclosed in double quotation marks as a direct quote. In this Referencing and Citing Guide, all Author-Date/Harvard and Footnoting direct quote examples are presented within double quotation marks. Reference List A reference list appears in alphabetical order at the end of your work. Many people confuse the terms ‘reference list’ and ‘bibliography’. A reference list includes ONLY the sources that you have CITED/REFERENCED in the body of your work. A bibliography includes the sources you cited plus any additional resources you may have consulted in your research. This is an example of a reference list: Blair, DJ 1996, ‘Beyond the metaphor: football and war, 1914-1918’, Journal of the Australian War Memorial, no.28, viewed 15/5/2007, http://www.awm.gov.au/journal/j28/j28- blai.htm Department of Veterans’ Affairs 2006, Helpful Links to Veteran Related Sites, viewed 10/8/2006, http://www.dva.gov.au/contacts/site.htm Dolnicar, S, Crouch, GI & Long, P 2008, ‘Environment-friendly tourists: what do we really know about them?’, Journal of Sustainable Tourism, vol.16, no.2, pp. 197-210.

NOTES 1. Always check with your academic to determine what is required for your particular assignment. 2. If there are multiple works by the same author in your reference list, put the earliest date first. 3. Make sure the author details and year in the in-text citation exactly match the entry in the reference list. Format In -Text Reference Reference List BOOKS Format In-Text Reference Reference List Book review Direct quote Nadel points to Stoppard’s constant scepticism about autobiography and biography (Carroll 2002, p. 8).

You do not need to put this reference in the reference list. Use italics when including the title of the dictionary/encyclopedia in-text. “Anarchy refers to the absence of authoritative institutions or norms above independent sovereign states.” (Smith 1993) Paraphrasing Smith (1993) observes that anarchy places states in a permanent position of rivalry with each other.

Format In-Text Reference Reference List Multiple authors – Two or three Cite the names of the authors in the order they appear on the title page of the book. Unlike the reference list which requires author/s initials, in-text references use author/s surnames only and do not include initials. When referring to multiple authors in a sentence use ‘and’ instead of ‘&’. When citing the names of multiple authors in brackets use ‘&’ before the last author. Direct quote “The experience of …” (Savage, Bagnall & Longhurst 2005, p. 28) or Savage, Bagnall and Longhurst (2005, p. 28) argue that “…” Paraphrasing The migrant experience is one that… (Savage, Bagnall & Longhurst 2005, p.28) Savage, M, Bagnall, G & Longhurst, B 2005, Globalization and belonging, SAGE, London.

Multiple works by same author Format In-Text Reference Reference List Same author different years Arrange the in-text citation in chronological order starting with the earliest date first. Use a semicolon to separate the page reference from the date following it. In the reference list begin with the earliest date first. The name of the author can be repeated but it is preferable to use the em dash — with no space before the date. Same author same year Distinguish between the titles in-text by adding a lower case letter of the alphabet starting with ‘a’. In the reference list place the lower case letter after the date with no space. Dyer (2009; 2013) reported that leadership and communication… or Leadership and communication are….

Seah, R c.2005, Micro-computer applications, Microsoft Press, Redmond, Washington. Second or later edition Any edition other than the first edition must be included in the reference list citation. The edition statement is added after the title, followed by a comma. A reprint is not a new edition. It does not need a specific mention. Use the abbreviation edn (no full stop) for edition. Direct quote “Student centred learning…” (Killen 2009, p. 10) Paraphrasing Effective teaching is based on several… (Killen 2009, p. 10) Killen, R 2009, Effective teaching strategies: lessons from research and practice, 5th edn, Cengage Learning, South Melbourne. Secondary sources This is where the work of one author is cited in another author’s work For the in-text citation you might write: As the cultural critic Norman Klein stated in 1997, “the Romantics gloried in the ruins of memory” (cited in Cameron 2008, p. 5) In the Reference List you only need to record the book that you actually sourced: Cameron, A 2008, Modular Narratives in Contemporary Cinema, Palgrave Macmillan, Basingstoke, New York.

Format In-Text Reference Reference List Single author – when 30 or more words are quoted Begin quoting the material on a new line. Indent it 5 spaces (use the Indent tool to keep all lines of the quote evenly indented). Include specific page number/s. Also, always include the page number(s) when drawing primarily on a particular page or section rather than referring to the source as a whole. In-text use p. for a single page (Metcalf 2005, p. 45) and pp. for a page range e.g. (Metcalf 2005, pp. 34-36). Omit quotation marks. Use double spacing for your text and single spacing for the intended quote. Make sure the quote is exactly as it was published. Much has been written about acute care. Finkelman (2006, p. 184), for example, points out that: There are many changes in acute care services occurring almost daily, and due to the increasing use of outpatient surgery, surgical services have experienced major changes. Hospitals are increasing the size of their outpatient or ambulatory surgery departments and adjusting to the need of moving patients into and out of the surgical service in 1 day or even a few hours.

Assignment – Close Reading and Response
Format: Length: 1500 words (plus or minus 10%)

Word (or similar) digital document.

Your document should be formatted with 1.5 line spacing.

Part A

 Do a close reading of one of the articles provided in which you identify which value positions are being taken by the author and by commentators within the article and justify your interpretation of the text.

 

Part B)

Write a letter to the editor of a newspaper to refute the arguments made in the first article and instead propose a position based on valuing difference and diversity. Here you should also refer to ideas of relationality and inclusivity.

 

Both your close reading and letter to the editor should draw on theories and ideas used throughout the semester and reading from the unit as well as some wider reading.

 

 

Assignment Instructions

Part A

  • Choose one of the articles provided for your close reading.
  • Read through the article and see if you can identify some of the issues being discussed. Make a list of them. What is the article arguing? What is the ‘story’ being told here? Notice the language used –what words come up often? How is language being used to convince the reader?
  • Research the issue to which this article relates, and make sure you have a clear understanding of the issues involved, the different ways that the media and others have approached the article. Find articles that represent other views on the issue. Make sure your understanding is well-grounded and factual, and that you’re making use of your analytical skills when finding other material on this.
  • In your research, identify some of the dominant themes, stories or ways of thinking about the main actors/identities in the article. Do these relate to a fixing, ignoring or excluding discourse? How do alternative narratives that you’ve found work to value difference? Make a note of all of these.
  • Return to your article. Go through the article to find evidence (actual words and sentences) of the dominant discourses and stories about people/places/events/communities that are present in the article. Highlight and colour code them (eg if the sentence is an example of heternormativity, use green. If it is an example of a paternalist fixing narrative, use orange etc).
  • Use these sentences to construct a close reading of the article, in which you identify the dominant discourses/stories and value positions that are being called upon to justify the argument. In your close reading, make an argument that the article is making use of particular value position/s. You should use quotes from the article to demonstrate how they are supporting your claim that the article is (for example) using fixing discourses, and you MUST explain why the sentence you use demonstrates this. Why is this sentence significant? What does it tell us about the values that underpin the article/argument? (It is not enough to simply say that the sentence shows the use of a fixing discourse without explaining how!).
  • Your close reading should make at least 4 points (ie 4 paras) that are well supported with evidence from the article as well as other sources from the unit and outside.

Part B

  • Write a letter to the editor of a newspaper to refute the arguments made in the first article and instead propose a position based on valuing difference and diversity. Here you should also refer to ideas of relationality and inclusivity.
  • Your response should address the precise claims and issues made within the initial argument and refute them based on a position of valuing difference.
  • Your response should reference material from the unit and also material from your wider research for part A. Think here about the use of reputable sources.
  • If applicable or relevant, your response may also outline a service provision model, vision or response to the issue that supports social justice/valuing diversity.

 

You MUST use references in both parts and these should be from theories and ideas used throughout the semester as well as some wider reading. You should use a minimum of 5 references.

 

GSBS6040 EXAMINATION QUESTION BANK

GSBS6040 EXAMINATION QUESTION BANK
TRIMESTER 3. 2017
• There are eighteen questions in this Examination Question Bank covering topics 1 to 9.
• Six of these questions will be on the examination paper.
• Students will be required to answer four of the six questions.
• Students will not be informed beforehand which six questions will be on the paper.
• Each question has equal weighting—that is, each answer will be awarded a maximum of 10 marks, for a total of 40 marks.
• The examination will be two hours in duration, with 10 minutes reading time.
• Students are encouraged to use these questions to help them review and apply the course content.
• Required readings from the textbook, and the additional required readings, are all examinable content. Also, use examples from class discussion to illustrate answers in the examination.
TOPIC 1 – DEFINITIONS, VALUES AND ASSUMPTIONS
1. A unitarist approach to management implies that people in organisations are capable of being ‘of one mind’ and a business manager’s role will be about finding or specifying common purposes in the interests of all. Discuss.
2. HRM has been transformed from the former personnel management model. What changes have been necessary to bring about this transformation? Explain the roles that a contemporary human resource managers must play.
TOPIC 2 – LINKING TO STRATEGY AND THE ENVIRONMENT
3. A normative business model does not describe a situation or structure that exists in an enterprise. Rather, it is a plan that an enterprise utilises to improve its operations. Rather than simply stating how a particular enterprise works, a normative business model prescribes structures and practices for the business. The Harvard Model of HRM and other such models are often criticised as normative. Discuss.
4. Provide three examples of how specific human resource management (HRM) practices would differ if an organisation changed from a growth to a decline strategy.
TOPIC 3 – HRM RULES, ROLES AND FUNCTIONS
5. The direct handling of people is, and always has been, an integral part of every business manager’s responsibility. What roles should HRM play in today’s modern organisation?
6. Why are rules about the rights and accountabilities of managers and employees at work important? Include in your answer an outline of the different types of rules with examples.
TOPIC 4 – HR PLANNING, WORK AND JOB DESIGN
7. Why is the need for human resource planning so important in today’s business environment? Explain the relationship between job analysis, individual competency development and job design.
8. Explain the concept of the psychological contract. Why is this concept so important in modern business organisations?
TOPIC 5 – RECRUITMENT AND SELECTION
9. The War for Talent means that, when recruiting, managers of organisations will scout for employee ‘talent’ in the ‘global village’. From the perspective of the resource-based view (RBV) of organisations, explain why managers might prefer to employ existing employees in new jobs as they arise, rather than employing from outside.
10. A number of writers have debated the ‘high road’ versus the ‘low road’ approach to HRM. How could such concepts impact on recruitment and selection processes? How do these approaches relate to the business life cycle?
TOPIC 6 – PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT AND EMPLOYEE DEVELOPMENT
11. Should companies be interested in helping employees plan their careers? Are there potential corporate benefits to be gained? Do individuals also have a role to play in planning their career? Discuss.
12. Despite the fact that most large organisations have some form of performance review system, many critics say that these systems do not work. Explain how an effective performance review system can be used as a tool for measuring and improving employees’ performance through mutual setting of goals and objectives.
TOPIC 7 – PAY AND REWARDS
13. ‘The design and development of a strategic remuneration system — one that fits with an organisation’s strategic plan and direction — is a complex and challenging task.’ Evaluate this comment.
14. Equity theory may play a very large role in determining an individual’s perception of an organisation’s remuneration and reward system. Procedural fairness and distributive justice are related concepts. Explain and discuss this view.
TOPIC 8 – EQUITY, DIVERSITY, HEALTH AND SAFETY and WELLNESS
15. All industries have different kinds of safety risks and health issues, depending on the nature of the workers, the work and the environment. Explain actions that an HR manager might take to effectively develop a workplace safety and health culture.
16. What is the meant by the terms ‘glass ceiling’ and ‘sticky floor’? What may be the consequences where a glass ceiling or sticky floor is perceived to exist within an organisation? Can human resource development strategies help to address these issues? Explain.
TOPIC 9 – EMPLOYEE VOICE AND REPRESENTATION
17. In a pluralist society, employee voice is essential to ensure improved organisational performance. Evaluate this claim.
18. Describe and evaluate at least three mechanisms through which workers express their voice at the workplace, either individually or collectively. What would be the benefits and challenges that organisations may encounter in responding effectively to employee voice? Support your answers with examples.

Structural Lab report

equirement Page- Structural Lab report
Sample lab report is given to you, the values, tables, and pictures need not be changed. The only change required is the theory which basically needs paraphrasing.
Regarding the Formulas, they must be the same but if we change the style of writing then, plagiarism will not be a problem.
Paraphrasing must be done in such a way that the content should be same, and the technical words should also be same, therefore, a person with good structural knowledge should write.
2 different reports are needed. Therefore, price quoted should be for 2 reports.
*** note last time when the paraphrasing was done the Expert did paraphrase the report but made no sense in terms of an engineering report, due to which the report, submitted gained less marks
