It should provide the background or context of the research you are undertaking)7) Methodology: Develop your methodology and show how you are answering the research questions. Remember this is a mixed methods study. The two methods being mixed are a survey and a multiple case study.The research design we are using in this study is a mixed method design. The methods being mixed are a survey and multiple case studies. The survey is the questionnaire being administered to a convenience sample of around 400 residents (at least 80% public housing) of the City of Sydney. Note that the sampling is not random.The case studies are those participants in the survey or from other sources who have expressed concerns about safety. There will be around 40 cases in the case study.The mixed method design is a parallel design as both methods are being implemented at the same time.SURVEY: The survey will consist of the administration of a face-to-face questionnaire to approximately 400 residents. The draft questionnaire is attached.The sampling frame is set out in the tables below. In order to obtain a reasonably representative sample from the various areas that make up the City of Sydney LGA with a focus on the social housing sites the LGA was divided into the areas set out in Table 1.In this table the number of social housing tenancies are shown along with the number of questionnaires that need to be administered in these areas to ensure proportionate representation of these tenancies.These areas were then divided into ten groups of roughly equal size for the purpose of data collection by ten pairs of students. This is shown in Table 2. Pairs of students will collect data from one of the areas shown in Table 2. The participants will be approached either at community meetings, by arrangement with the concierge of an apartment block where appropriate, or by approaching residents in or near their homes.Data will be collected in the first three weeks of September 2013.8) Conclusion: Here you will Discuss (check midcourse.net for the help you need) expected outcomes and their significance for the City of Sydney!

Erik Erikson Theories? In preparation for the Life Review interview, you will research the theories of Eric Erikson.? This assignment will help you record, organize, and analyze important information about Erikson?s Stages of Development.At the completion of the interview, you may be able to determine the degree to which the client has achieved ego integrity as defined by Erikson (1986). Failure to achieve ego integration may manifest itself in disgust and/or fear of death. Nurses can encourage elders to write about their life experiences by assigning topics which can be shared with a group or can use a guided interview to provide a sense of continuity and experience the human need for connectedness. Life that can be viewed across years may balance the highs and lows with a sense of completeness, as opposed to remembering the regrets.Performance Objectives:? Apply gerontologic nursing principles and standards in nursing practice across the continuum of elder care.? Use current evidence and theories in care of older adults.A. Conduct research: List sources of information regarding Erikson?s theories that you used during your research. Be sure to follow APA format.B. Use this space to record and organize the information you discover during your research. Focus on key ideas, examples, and applications that will relate to your interview with your Life Review elder. (This information should not exceed two pages.). DO NOT COPY AND PASTE FROM YOUR REFERENCES. Please supply a synthesis of what you have learned about the last stage of development (ego integrity vs despair). Please do not discuss the other developmental stages. Pretend that your instructor knows nothing about this stage of development and how it affects older adults ? teach us! Please write in paragraph format rather than bullet points.
ABC Company and Whole Foods Market have decided they want to do an Organizational Diagnosis to determine howvarious aspects of Whole Foods Market are aligned such as inputs, resources, productivity, throughputeffort, outputs, performance, strategy, etc. They want to know if there are any significant issues at WholeFoods Market and how these issues might affect its integration into ABC Company.REQUIRED READING:Download and read this white paper by Falletta about OD models. Salvatore Falletta, President and CEO ofLeadersphere, has written a white paper that reviews several commonly used models of organizationaldiagnosis. We will be using several of these models in conducting your integrative Case project. Therelevant part of this paper in terms of this class is the first 31 pages. The last part of the paper (pp.32-43) deals with the theoretical foundations of the Burke & Litwin model, Falletta?s OrganizationalIntelligence Model, and reading that is optional. We are not covering Falletta?s Organizational IntelligenceModel.Falletta, S.V. (2005) Organizational Diagnostic Models: A Review and Synthesis. Retrieved 6/6/12 fromhttp://www.leadersphere.com/img/OrgmodelsR2009.pdfFalletta provides an overview of Open Systems Theory (OST) in his paper (pp. 8 & 9). Keep in mind thatOST is not an OD model, but rather is a basis for most of the later models. For a deeper understanding, goto the following optional reading and read about systems, systems thinking, and organizations as opensystems. You will see that businesses are not unlike living organisms. They depend on the environment forsustenance. They are comprised of multiple, mutually dependent parts. And they affect the environment in thecourse of their daily activities. Open systems theory provides valuable insights into organizations.Optional Reading: National Defense University, Systems Thinking and Learning Organizations, Retrieved 6/6/12from http://www.au.af.mil/au/awc/awcgate/ndu/strat-ldr-dm/pt1ch4.htmlReview Case Analysis since it is so important in this final course. The purpose of a Case is to show thatyou have thought critically about the subject matter that you are learning AND to make an argument for aClaim about the specific situation in the Case assignment. Stephen Toulmin has developed an ArgumentMethodology that is very useful in Making a Case. To review Case Analysis and Toulmin?s ArgumentMethodology, go to Making a Case page.CASE 2 ASSIGNMENT:There is some disagreement in the Executive ranks as to which OD method or model should be used. Someexecutives have familiarity with a couple of models, but it seems to be only based on what they have read orheard about. So you need to explore some models and determine their strengths and weaknesses. And ultimatelyyou need to recommend which one is best for using at Whole Foods Market. As part of making thatdetermination, you will also need to identify several critical issues facing Whole Foods Market.The executives want you to include the 7S model, the Congruence Model, and the Burke-Litwin Model in youranalysis. And I want you to pick three or four more models to include as well ? so we have a well-roundedgroup of OD models.Prepare a report in which you include the following:For each of the models you are analyzing (six or seven), a brief overview of what the model does.Clearly identify the strengths and weaknesses of each model.Identify and Discuss (check midcourse.net for the help you need) two or three issues that Whole Foods Market is facing.Determine which model you think is the best model to use.Make a recommendation as to which model should be used, I expect you to Make a Strong Case. Explain why your selection would be the best choice. Explain how the recommended model can be used to help diagnose the issues you have identified.
