As the firm looks for ways to offset the domestic downturn in sales, Deborah, the CEO of your company, wants to determine if a global strategy is a good fit for the organization. She has designated you as the manager for this project. You will work with your team to develop a global marketing plan for your organization.

You begin your research in deciding if and what the global strategy should be. You get your team together and begin to discuss a plan on how you will research this possibility.

You start the meeting by saying “Let’s brainstorm and start to get a plan together for a possible globalization strategy. Tiffany, I’d like you work with me to begin researching possible locations.”

Tiffany says, “I think we need to research some locations, but I think there is more to it than that. There still needs to be a decision on the type of strategy or approach we are taking. Would we use a multidomestic approach, a global approach, or a transnational approach? I’m still not entirely convinced a global strategy is the answer.”

“Great point, Tiffany. It is obvious to me as well that we need to explore a strategy that will put us in a better position to handle the economic downturn. We have to provide the board with the facts. They seem to be leaning in the direction of a global strategy, but I’m not sure it’s the right move either. That’s why we need to do research.”

Domestic profit margins have dropped by 2% this quarter. You wonder how you and your team can help fix this. Is a global strategy the answer, or should the company continue to focus on the domestic market?

You call a team meeting to learn about the progress of their research.

Tiffany, one of your team members, begins the discussion. “I think we need to look at some of the internal factors,” she says. “We know what our capabilities are on the domestic front, but what about in the global market? We have a fairly strong market presence here in higher-end markets, but how does that translate globally?”

Discuss the following:

  • How do you define a global strategy? Compare and contrast global strategy with other international expansion strategies.
  • Identify a minimum of 3 possible countries for globalization. Research each of these locations in the furniture industry, and document both the pros and cons of using these in global strategy.
  • What country would you choose? What evidence can you provide in support of your choice?
  • What evidence might somebody else, who does not agree with you, provide to support an alternative choice?
  • Recommend two or three areas to benchmark in preparation for the decision regarding global expansion.

Part 2 Please use references and citations

Write 600–800 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions by your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas.

As you close your weekly meeting with Deborah, she says, “There are some very good ideas here. I would like to see you continue with a global marketing plan. We need more concrete analysis and data for the presentation. Get your team to work.”

After your meeting with Deborah, you briefly meet with your team to discuss moving toward a more formal analysis.

“Tiffany and Mike, we need to provide a more detailed analysis,” you explain. “You’ve done a great job so far looking at what resources we need and potential countries, but we need to really dig deeper on this.”

Tiffany nods her head in agreement. “Definitely,” she says. “We need to look at some internal variables as well as political, environmental, sociocultural, and technological environments of the countries that we are considering.”

Mike interjects, “Well, that’s something we should consider, but it’s not the only way to analyze this type of project. This is such a big decision, and we need to give as much information as we can.”

You reply, “Great point, Mike. We should look at this from a couple of different angles.”

The next step in your strategic marketing plan is to determine the tools that are needed to conduct an analysis of the industry and competitors. Complete the following:

  • What are the best tools to use in this situation?
    • Provide a brief summary of at least 2 of these tools.
  • Why do you think these are the best ways to analyze the market?
  • How will you use these tools in your plan?

GCU Importance of Having Scheduled “check-Ins” or “check Points” to Monitor and Assess Your Mentee’s Progress Discussion Response

Initial Question:

Discuss the importance of having scheduled “check-ins” or “check points” to monitor and assess your mentee’s progress. Why is consistent follow-up critical to your mentee’s success?

Respond to this:

Tracking progress is critical to a mentoring program. When tracking progress, the mentor can see if the mentee is or has met benchmarks that are set for him/her. As you give them advice and help them take discernible steps in the right direction, request that the mentee report back on their accomplishments. In order to be effective, check-ins should be specific rather than general (MentorCloud, 2015).

By having regular check in’s this will help the mentee learn accountability. Learning accountability and responsibility will help the mentee to progress and meet goals that are set. The check in will help to evaluate the mentee and determine if any changes should occur to the plan. There may be aspects that need fine tuned as the plan progress is evaluated. When a meeting occurs, and progress is evaluated the mentor can present follow-up recommendations that meeting or take the time between check in’s to evaluate and re-focus the mentee to keep them on track. These are also critical values for a mentee to learn and carry over into every aspect of their life. We should all practice accountability and responsibility.

Luka Sabbat and Billie Eilish Instagram Celebrity Analysis

Watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcO6Nx7diKM

Read the following two articles:

James Franco, “The Meaning of the Selfie (Links to an external site.).”

Taylor Swift, “For Taylor Swift, the Future of Music is a Love Story.” (Links to an external site.)

  1. Choose an Instagram user with more than 10,000 followers. You can use SearchMyBio (Links to an external site.) to find Instagram accounts by keyword, followers, and hashtags. This should not be a “celebrity” in the traditional sense (use your best judgment). Ideally, you’re looking for a “regular person” who posts pictures of themselves, their lives, and so forth.
    • Describe the account. What types of pictures does the person post? (Selfies, cars, landscapes, throwbacks, animals, food, etc.)
    • What types of comments does he/she get?
    • How does he or she relate to his/her users?
  2. Now choose a “traditional” celebrity account (musician, actor, athlete, model, personality, etc.) A traditional celebrity would be someone who was a celebrity PRIOR to any Instagram notoriety, such as Beyoncé or Miley Cyrus.
    • What types of pictures does the person post? (Selfies, cars, landscapes, throwbacks, animals, food, etc.)
    • What types of comments does he/she get?
    • How does he or she relate to his/her users?
  3. Compare and contrast these accounts.
    • Does either account use the strategies described in the Swift/Franco essays?
    • Why do you think the “ordinary person” has so many followers?
    • How has Instagram changed “celebrity”?
    • How do James Franco and Taylor Swift reflect on their own selfies, and how is that different from your reaction to your celebrity selfie?

Upload your analysis to the Canvas Assignment area including images and links to the Instagram URLs for each account.

1. Identify the person and their crimes

3. Background and relevant information

4. Review all 5 of the P’s and also discuss the context (precipitating factors- protective factors- predisposing factors- perpetuating factors- presenting factors)

4. Potential diagnoses – provide a justification for these; what criteria do the individual meet, and what evidence from the known information explains this?

5. Treatment – you may review the treatments administered, or, if this is unknown, you can formulate your own ideas and suggestions about the kinds of treatment methods what would be useful in remediating the person’s diagnoses.

6. Outcomes – what ultimately happened to this individual? Were there positive changes based on their treatment and remediation? Why do you think these outcomes occurred?

Your paper should be 2-3 pages, in APA formatting. Please be sure to rely on scholarly material and books for your information – no wikipedia or pop psychology websites, please!

Stages of Faith and Identity Birth to Teens Article Discussion

Topic: Faith Development

Thread: James Fowler was an American theologian who was the professor of Theology and Human Development at Emory University. He has produced several pieces of literature illustrating his theory of faith development. This week, you will review an article that introduces his stages of faith in relation to the developmental concepts you have learned about in this course. Faith theorists recognize the complex interplay of factors that impact one’s faith development. Development of faith, like other aspects of human development, involves movement from one stage to another and is not always systematic or predictable. Individuals can reach chronologic and biological adulthood while reflecting structural stages of faith that are more indicative of early or middle childhood or adolescence. Spiritual nurturing and practice, combined with a person’s spiritual aptitude and discipline, impacts the pace and depth of faith development.

After reading and reflecting on the article, develop your thread addressing these questions:

  1. What are your impressions of faith development in relation to an individual’s other developmental processes? Do you feel that there is interconnection, or do you oppose the idea that successful faith development requires successful development in other areas? Explain your answer using examples and support from the article and/or other sources of information.
  2. Using your personal experiences, briefly describe some of the most meaningful characteristics of your faith development process. If there were pivotal moments or notable influences, good and bad, mention the significance of those people or events. Only include the most relevant details. Make sure to relate your thread to elements of Fowler’s faith development theory and your specific experiences.

COM104 Central Route of Processing & Peripheral Route of Processing Paper

one of the major theories of persuasion, the Elaboration Likelihood Model (ELM). For this activity, you will apply your knowledge of the two routes of processing proposed by the ELM (i.e., the central and peripheral routes) to identifying the extent to which components of a sales pitch on the popular show Shark Tank encourage each of these routes.

Choose any sales pitch from Shark Tank during which entrepreneurs ask the Sharks to invest in their product. You may choose any sales pitch that is available to you on Youtube. Then, respond to the following:

  • Identify 3 message factors from this clip that encouraged central route processing about investing in the product and describe why they are relevant to the message argument of investing in the product.
  • Identify 3 message factors from this clip that encouraged peripheral route processing about investing in the product and describe why each is a heuristic cue rather than a message that supports the message argument of investing in the product.
  • Are the Sharks more likely to process centrally or peripherally? Why? Make sure to discuss this in terms of your motivation and your ability to process the message.
  • When YOU watched this video, did you use central or peripheral route thinking? Why? Make sure to discuss this in terms of your motivation and your ability to process the message.
