Fact Pattern Case Study

… ¶ … Pattern

Case Study (Fact Pattern)

Criminal activities have been on the rise in many states of the United States. To control such criminals from going unpunished in the society, the criminal system uses the aid of prison and correctional facilities. The United States of America is one of the top countries who have a very large number of criminals locked up behind bars (LENNARD, 2012). With so many prisoners in the country, it has been important for the government to categorize prisoners with minor offences with those prisoners who have committed major crimes. Therefore, the Department of Justice in the United States transfers this prison categorization task to the Federal Bureau of Prisons (Redding, 2004).

The Federal Bureau of Prisons is responsible to…. [read more]

Psychotherapeutic Case Formulation Salomon Case Study

… ii. Metacognitive Strategy

Salomon should receive evidence-based intervention (Center for Mental Health in Schools at UCLA, 2010, p. 2). That would include solo therapy sessions with Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy with the ABCDE method, in which the therapist teaches the client that external events are not causing his emotional/psychological disturbances; rather, " 'A' actual external events automatically/habitually elicit 'B' beliefs and irrational thoughts (perceptions and interpretations of the external events) that entail 'C' consequent emotions that may be irrational (maladaptive, inappropriate, unrealistic), and that must be 'D' disputed, attacked, challenged so that 'E' effective rational thoughts (perceptions and interpretations of the external events) may take their place (Rosner, 2011, p. 83). As part of his treatment, Salomon should also: "Keep a daily log of problematic emotional…. [read more]


Pneumonia Case Study

… Biggest concern? Getting another infection

Lots of anger/anxiety, depression or fear? Depressed a lot and concerned about health.

Role/relationship: I life with my husband

Roles in the family? My role is limited due to my health

Health Perception/Health Management

The 53-year-old patient presented a chief compliant of a consistent and purulent yet productive cough. She also showed a failure to thrive and leukocytosis. The patient discussed her health history over the last few months. She said she was in a constant state of pain and she has been on methadone for years as a way to counteract and perhaps prevent the aforementioned narcotic use from reoccurring. She had also had asthma and fibromyalgia for years in addition to prior being a heavy smoker. She was…. [read more]


John George Haigh Case Case Study

… For example, the Hendersons (two of his victims) were showing a house and that is the device that Haigh used to find the people and then victimize them. Using such a method to attract seemingly random victims as a means to keep cops from finding a clear pattern did not work then and certainly would not work now. Granted, if Henderson had been a little more careful, he might have escaped detection. However, one slip-up is all a police officer needs to get a warrant and since there was a litany of evidence scattered around his workshop when his record of theft and correlation to John Durand-Deacon (one of the victims) led to his capture after he had killed at least six, and up to….

Crisis at Footwear International Case Case Study

… Certainly, the political realm is beyond the realm of influence of the managing director of Footwear International, but this does not preclude making efforts to align the company with the more democratic entities in Bangladesh, some of whom will, in fact, be Muslim.

An informed Prime Minister could be a "friend to the company" if the official position could be reversed to favor Footwear International. The managing director could seize the opportunity to capitalize on networks developed in Bangladesh over the years, asking for protocol to support communication with those who lead the country. It is a time to reach out to those who have a clear understanding of the importance of encouraging foreign investment in the country -- particularly after the departure of the…. [read more]


Blue Ridge Coffee Case Study

… The organization set up decentralized structures on regional basis (Wallace 2004). Sales representatives execute their duties effectively and are accountable to specific managers across the U.S. In effect, the marketing and promotion sections of the organization would operate such that their personnel report to managers at regional levels. Proper organization of the sales force is critical to overall success of the wholesale division and the company in general (Wallace 2004).

Since BRC is a formal organization with clearly defined tasks for salespersons, the promotion and marketing strategies would also tend to be formal (Wallace 2004). If the company had adopted an informal structure to its sale force, the marketing and promotional strategies would also be less formal and less rigid. Overall, the customer service, promotion….

Black Diamond Case Raises Case Study

… Black Diamond case raises a number of issue about design, manufacturing, and taking the necessary lead time to make certain that a product meets all specifications and can be manufactured safely. The dilemma facing the production team currently is that a new product, the Black Prophet axe designed for climbing, failed a customer, raising the spectre of mass recalls and a decline in sales, as well as a blot on the reputation of the company and diminished growth in the future. To address this issue, questions are being raised about the time given to development of the product, the speed with which it was rushed through for manufacture, and possible flaws that might have been introduced by a too-rapid run-up to the market.

Initial Analysis…. [read more]

The Situation a) Kelly Thomson

Kelly believes that the company and namely his software department is incapable of properly processing the amount of work with which they are being tasked. He bases his assumption on the sound arguments of insufficient personnel, large amount of work and tight deadlines.

While being pressured to design several prototypes for the new product and in the same time maintain the good quality of the old ones, Kelly believes that he would only be capable of designing a single feature for the product.

Kelly believes that the former success of the retinal scan was only due to sufficient time and resources to develop it. Behind this assumption lays the sound argument of previous experience and professional…. [read more]


Humanistic Theory in, Julie Case Study

… ¶ … Humanistic Theory

In case study, Julie is being affected by a host of different social problems that are helping contribute to her overall levels of anxiety. According to the humanistic theory, the basic challenges that are facing Julie have not been addressed. This means, that certain elements must be taken into consideration, in order for her to have a complete understanding of herself (as a person). The most notable include: her issues of intimacy, trouble getting along with others and a sense of frustration she will constantly feel. This is important, because it shows how some of her basic needs have been met such as: physiological and safety. Yet, when you move beyond these issues, the requirements of having complete self-awareness have not…. [read more]


2-Year-Old Two-Year-Old Child Development Case Study

… 2-year-Old Case Study

Two-Year-old Child Development Case Study

Healthy early childhood development is highly dependent on some rather simple, yet profound variables. The first few feelings that an infant has are very basic instinctual attachments or bonding to his or her immediate environmental surroundings, including caregivers. Security is the primal most comforting feeling an infant has and if it is interrupted in these early often the result is an attachment disorder if not addressed properly. This particular case study is an exploration of child development during these early formative years.

Jason is a playful, bright and healthy two-year-old male, although a little shy. His parents are John, a thirty-two-year-old computer technician and Michelle, a twenty-eight-year-old graphic designer. Both have very serious career goals and Michelle…. [read more]


Australian Cladding Company Case Study

… These approaches place the human resource management policy formulation at the strategic level. In these approaches to Strategic Human Resource Management it is claimed that: (1) human resource problems are problems solved by linking HRM and strategy formulation at an early stage; and (2) problems with strategy implementation are solved by early adjustment of the HRM to these strategies." (p.299)

Human resources must be included in the planning from the very earliest of stages and this enables human resources to understand what is needed and enables HR to adjust which means that the decisions made about company employees are geared toward the company's overall strategies. Mueller (1996) states that strategic use of human resources requires the following:

(1) Management is not reactive but instead is…. [read more]


Mr. Khan Sprained Ankle Case Study

… Mr. Khan-Sprained Ankle

This case study presents the scenario of a middle aged man suffering from a sprained ankle. The ankle is one of the more intricately designed structures within the human body-from a skeletal perspective. There are a variety of bones, ligaments and tendons that coalesce into a working framework that provides the anatomical architecture to support balance and make the basic task of walking possible. This case study will focus on the anatomical structures that are at the heart of an ankle sprain. In order to establish this working framework, this case study will explain the three grades of Ankle sprains and indicate which grade Mr. Kahn, the patient, is experiencing. Furthermore, this case study will identify the key social and psychological that…. [read more]


Arizona vs. USA Case Study

… This is no more racist than when a person is carded at an airport security checkpoint or when they are proving that they are a credit card holder or that they are old enough to buy booze or cigarettes. The argument that keeping one's visa card, state-issued ID or something similar is a huge burden is just beyond the pale. Everyone, not just Hispanics, should be able to prove who they are given certain circumstances and indeed people can be thrown in jail, Hispanic or not, if they cannot or will not do so (ACLU, 2013). Exceptions can and should be made for the mentally ill and young children, but those exceptions are already allowed for. As such, to suggest that Arizona is racist or…. [read more]


Zappos Case Study

This case study analysis is based on the 2009 case study from Stanford Graduate School of Business titled Zappos.com: Developing a supply chain to deliver WOW! It begins with the general overview of the background, philosophies and current problems faced by Zappos. This is followed by a hierarchal ranking of the four major presenting problems for the company, which are: maintaining the "wow" image without overspending, inventory management/distribution problems, transportation efficiency problems and customer behavior problems.

Each of these problems is addressed in more detail in the discussion section and the recommendations section at the end of the analysis. Prior to the conclusion and recommendations section, a list of possible strategic alternatives is provided with a brief explanation, and potential scenarios that…. [read more]


Schock vs. Rondeross Term Paper

… If the goods were damaged or destroyed without the fault of either party before the risk of loss agreement has passed then the contract is avoided. However in the case of Schock vs. Rondeross, the goods were identified after the risk of loss were passed to the buyers. Hence, Schock does not have any claim to the damages except to bear them. But, here the buyer kept the goods at the seller's place so with the understanding that he would claim it after one week. When the wind destroyed his mobile house, it was in the possession of the "third party." But, since there was no FOB agreement between the parties, Rondeross will win the case based on the fact that there was no agreement…. [read more]


Patterns in America Research Proposal

… Exposing More Disheartening American Patterns

The image of the United States brings to mind unity and equality for all. Yet, in thorough examination of the nation's history, it is clear that the real underlying pattern goes directly against this very concept. Although the principle of equality has always been an underlying influence in American culture, the true patterns within the society show a much more fragmented and subjugated culture which has denied millions the very rights and liberties which were said to create it.

There is an observed modern American culture that is a blend of a multitude of races and ethnicities, and it is within this concept that many loose sight of the true divisions which have plagued the nation's history for centuries. According…. [read more]


Epidemiology Descriptive Case Study

… Hypertension is a major problem because it can lead directly to heart failure. Diabetes mellitus can also lead to kidney failure and has been the main reason for new hospital admissions for kidney related problems in the past decade. However, the main problem people with diabetes complain of is the way that there blood vessels react to a diagnosis of diabetes. People have issues healing because there is a restriction of blood flow related to the disease. Many will also have problems feeling there extremities (called neuropathy) which can lead to further injuries that cannot heal. These two problems are why individuals with diabetes often have amputations later in life. This is a disease which has some short-term detriments, but the long-term consequences of uncontrolled….

Lindy Chamberlain Case Case Study

… During the first inquest in December 1980, magistrate and coroner Denis Barritt determined Azaria "met her death when attacked by a wild dingo whilst asleep in her family's tent" (Linder, 2012). However, North Territory prosecutors argued that the clothes were put in place and not dragged by a dingo, and that they showed signs of being removed and not torn off. On September 19, 1981, a search of the Chamberlain's home was conducted and more "evidence" was collected. A second inquest was launched when large quantities of "blood" were found in the Chamberlain's car. During this second inquest, forensic expert James Cameron (through fluorescent examination), Dr. Andrew Scott, and Barry Cocks testified blood on Azaria's jumpsuit suggested she was cut with a sharp instrument; textile….

Internal Control Weaknesses That Existed Case Study

… I would then implement an updated proactive approach that has all the proper components necessary for the monitoring of the internal controls that would help in the prevention, deterrence as well as detection of fraud as opposed to relying on a reactive one that only comes into action when the fraud has already occurred and the damage already done.

3.A Critique the ethical nature of Pavlo's actions the case

I am in complete disagreement with Pavlo's comments about the environment as the motivator for committed fraud as well as the circumstances that made him to engage in fraudulent activities. Since he was part of the top management, he had the full trust of the shareholders and stakeholders at large. He also had the full confidence…. [read more]


Bullying: Legal and Ethical Application Case Study

… In any case, Johnny is just a reflection of other troubled children with autism whose cases have not been reported. The challenge arises when innocent students, Tommy, and his mother are to be convinced that Johnny should not be reprimanded negatively. The use of apology letters as suggested in this study is the first step towards reconciliation. In order to ensure Tommy and innocent students are satisfied, the report advocates that Johnny should read the letter loud in class or the assembly grounds. The administration should also take the initiative of duplicate the letter copies to be disbursed to various classes. This will communicate the message that bullying is discouraged whilst ensuring that problems facing the troubled Johnny are also addressed. The goal is to…. [read more]


Bank America Case Study

… A first example in this sense is represented by the very nature of the program, in the meaning that it addresses executives within the firm. The roles and tasks of these particular staff members differ from one position to the other, meaning as such that it is difficult for the firm to plan ahead a process by which to assess the performances of a particular executive, or to create objective expectations regarding their future performances and results. In other words, difficulties are observed at the level of metric performance (Chingos, 2002).

In order to address this shortage, it is useful to create analyses and benchmarks of similar positions within the industry and assess executive performances against these pre-existent patterns, but also against the performances attained…. [read more]


Fictional Case of Ms. Jean Harlow Term Paper

… ¶ … fictional case of Ms. Jean Harlow and her need for a treatment plan. The beginning of the paper describes the case in detail of Ms. Harlow and her mental disorder. It describes the events that took place in her life that would lead her to seek the attention of a psychiatrist as well as a more in depth look in how someone with a mental disorder might behave in order to be able to observe and evaluate.

The treatment plan for her mental disorder involves antipsychotic medications as well as antidepressants. She demonstrated symptoms of Major Depressive Disorder with Mood-Incongruent Psychotic Features. This was evidenced by her hearing voices and feeling lethargy and disinterest in her daily life and social interactions.

Stickley Furniture Page | Case Case Study

… This manual process increases the cost of production and time required for production also chances of error is increased.

2. The inefficiency linked to the production process is when equipment is stopped, re-configured and out-put is tested before it started off with the next level of activity. In the simultaneous operation of the activity there is lot of wastage during the process and to overcome this wastage company has to maintain high level of inventory during the off season time period so that production efficiency is maintained during peak periods. This methodology can reduce the profit margin of the company throughout the year and doesn't let it enjoy the peak season sales revenue at its fullest.

Suggestions for efficient production process

Tesco PLC Case Study

… The innate value of a customer-driven supply chain to increase inventory turns, alleviate stock-outs and be a key contributor to long-term customer satisfaction is a core requirement of any retailing operation (Jones, Clarke, 2002). The pivotal nature of supply chains to the Tesco business model emerges when the internal and external factors are analyzed and put into the context of global expansion. Further, using the Porter Determinants of Competitive Advantage Model to rank order the Return on Invested Capital (ROIC) of various locations would have given the company executives valuable insight into which regions to invest in first (Porter, 2008).

Finally, the internal and external factors also underscore just how critical the sustainability of a high margin, high inventory model is to Tesco's continued growth.…. [read more]


College What Are the Institutions Case Study

… ¶ … College Case Study

What are the institutions values, mission, and vision statements, and are they easily accessible for external communities?

Like any other academic institution, Readers State College is faced with a difficult task when it is asked to identify its goals. Baldridge et al. (2000) point out that while most organizations have specific, stated goals that help them form their decision making process, universities have a much more difficult task, as they must deal with "vague, ambiguous goals" (p. 128). Thus, specific goals are difficult to pinpoint when considering Readers State College, so values cannot be derived from goals in a linear fashion. Instead, the values of Readers State College are derived from its many characteristics, including client services, problem technology, professionalism,…. [read more]

List and describe the issues or problems impacting on Besagi.

Because the company competes in the international marketplace, it is affected by a number of forces that are common to all organizations as well as some that are specific to its industry, and these are discussed further below.

Drought and unpredictable climate conditions in Australia and for overseas suppliers of generic seeds. According to U.S. government analysts, "Drought, robust import demand, and a strong currency have pushed the trade deficit up in recent years, while infrastructure bottlenecks and a tight labor market are constraining growth in export volumes and stoking inflation" (Australia, 2008, p. 3).

Housing Discrimination in 1968 Case Study

… MHDC, the Supreme Court found that even though the result of a particular decision may end in discrimination against certain races, those who claim racial discrimination must prove that racial bias was the deciding factor and not just an unfortunate the result of the decision. (Arlington Heights v MHDC, 1977) Without more evidence proving racial bias, a claim of racial discrimination may be difficult to prove.

But, as stated before, Sally does have her own evidence. A secretary transferred her call to Mark Armstrong, proving that he did indeed speak to her, while a co-worker overheard her objecting to inappropriate questions. This is indeed powerful evidence, but records of Armstrong's renters, especially if they prove to be absent any minorities, could be the deciding factor…. [read more]


Margarita Adlerian the Margarita Case Case Study

… In addition, Margarita's life is still very much in an evolutionary and transitional phase, with her upcoming attendance at law school and the rapid growth of her children through their toddlerhood and into childhood; the Adlerian method of psychotherapy can help her to address issues in these areas as they arise, but it is not exactly equipped to deal with them in a preemptive or predictive mode (NASAP 2011). Though healthier and generally more beneficial life choices will assist Margarita with every situation and relationship she encounters, not all facets can be predicted.

Conclusion

Margarita's situation might seem very bleak and desperate form the inside, but the Adlerian perspective shows that there are very workable solutions to her problems. These solutions will take some time…. [read more]
