You are responsible for writing and submitting a paper that advocates either the shareholder-value perspective or stakeholder-theory perspective on corporate responsibility, as discussed in the video, book, and classroom discussions. Only those sources may be used in fulfillment of the assignment—the use of any outside sources without citation (which will not be accepted) constitutes plagiarism.
Begin by clearly stating that one position is morally superior to the other, then develop a carefully structured argument to support your position. You should NOT use your very limited word count to explain the perspective to the instructor. Take for granted that your reader is an expert in your source material, and add value by convincing the reader that the perspective you have chosen is more moral than the alternative.
If you have kept up with the corporate responsibility course content, absorbing the readings, videos, and class discussions, you will be able to write the paper effectively and efficiently. If you have not, you will need to become well versed in the both corporate responsibility positions before writing (without the benefit of class discussions), which will reduce the amount of time that you have available to craft an excellent paper.
The paper must be between 275 and 300 words (absolutely no more); place your name and word count in the upper right-hand corner of your paper. As you did with your Business Ethics News Item paper, you should think in terms of writing a 350-400 word paper, and then paring it down and crafting it into a very tight, brief paper that fits into the required word range. Do not write a “short” paper and then engage in puffery. The paper must be double spaced in Times New Roman 12-point font, and attached to this assignment as a Microsoft Word document by the date and time listed in the course schedule. This time is a cutoff—you are welcome to submit the paper early. Papers that miss the cutoff will lose 25% of their points if submitted anytime in the following 24 hours, and will not be accepted after that time. Your grade will be determined based on how closely your paper matches the above requirements, along with the depth and persuasiveness of your advocacy for your position. Invest sufficient time into thinking through, drafting, and refining your paper: It accounts for 20% of your course grade.

Business Assignment Help Assignment: Using Statistical Process Control to Manage Processes For this Assignment, you will be
tasked with creating a presentation for a group of business leaders to
explain statistical process control (SPC) and to identify some examples
of the use of SPC to promote sound business decisions.
You work as a business analyst within the IT
Department of XYZ Corporation and have just been put on assignment as a
consultant to a health care organization. In this organization, there is
a clinical “Nurse Helpline” call center, which has a staff of several
experienced nurses and nurse practitioners to answer telephone calls
from outpatients who have concerns about their health or the treatment
or medications they are receiving from the hospital. One of the leading
metrics in this call center is hold times. They have a standard that any
call placed on hold is not in hold status for more than 2 minutes
before an interaction with a nurse. Every day, each clinic records the
number of calls and the number of calls on hold answered in less than 2
minutes. The management team has concerns about the number of calls that
have hold times greater than 2 minutes. They want to employ a more
formal quality control process that would allow them to get ahead of the
problem, which is why you have been consulted.
During your initial interactions with the
hospital and management team, you talk informally about the use of
statistical process control (SPC). You soon realize, however, that some
members of the management team may not have a true understanding of how
SPC would work in their organization. One member in particular asks a
surprising question that makes you wonder if part of the management team
is missing even a basic understanding of SPC. So, you decide to create a
presentation that explains what statistical process control is and
provide the management team with some examples of how SPC can be used in
a business context to promote sound decision making. To support the
information that you provide in your presentation, be sure to reference a
minimum of four properly formatted, scholarly sources.
To prepare for this Assignment:
Review this week’s Learning Resources.
Refer to the Academic Writing Expectations for 2000/3000-Level Courses as you compose your Assignment.
Submit your presentation based on the following prompts.
Part 1: Explaining Statistical Process Control (8–10 slides, with speaker’s notes)Define statistical process control (SPC) and briefly describe the history of SPC, focusing on its origins. (2 slides)
Provide an example of a control chart (either one you create or one
you locate on the web) and label the parts of the chart. (1 slide)
Describe the derivation of the center line and control limits on a control chart and the meaning of each. (1–2 slides)
Explain the two types of process variation—common cause and special cause. (2 slides)
Describe at least two signals of special cause variation that might be detected in a control chart. (2–3 slides)
Part 2: Applications of SPC in Business Decision Making (5–8 slides, with speaker’s notes)Identify at least two examples of the application of SPC in a
business context. Select examples from multiple industries (e.g.,
manufacturing, health care, and service). For each example, describe how
SPC was used to improve process, achieve better outcomes, and support
sound decision making. (2–4 slides)
For each type of process variation, describe the implications for management action. (2 slides)
In conclusion, provide three potential benefits of SPC to the health
care organization. Specifically, how might SPC help the company make
sound decisions to the end of achieving its goals? Also, what, if any,
drawbacks do you see to using SPC? Identify two possible risks of the
use of SPC that the organization should be aware of. (1–2 slides)
Note: Your presentation should adhere to
the template provided. It should consist of 13–18 slides, not including
the title slide and References slide that includes properly formatted
citations for a minimum of four scholarly sources to support the
information you presented. You should also include detailed speaker
notes, to be used as a script for delivering the presentation. Use the
