Using a critical approach to reflection, reflect upon your experience running the Platform Wars simulation. Your reflection should be in an essay format and cover the following points
1. Reflect upon your experience:
What did you do?
How did that work for you?
What else might you have done?
What did you learn? What questions do you have?
What do you need to consider doing or changing in the future?
2. What beliefs and assumptions influenced your decision-making in the simulation? Explain. Provide examples to illustrate your points.
3. What practices influenced your decision-making in the simulation? What practices from your experience and education affected your decisions in the simulation? Explain. Provide examples to illustrate your points.
How Can I Improve My Reflection Paper?
First be sure you are writing a reflection paper…a reflection paper focuses on thinking about the situation and discussing what you learned. A reflection paper should discuss what worked…and why? …and what didn’t work…and why? …what you have learned from this experience and what you will do differently next time. Making connections to concepts in the course is also important.
The most common mistake is to write a descriiptive paper…a paper that describes in detail what happened or what you did, but does not critically reflect on what worked and what didn’t work and what was learned. For example, a descriiptive paper will say: I raised the price in round 3 by $50. Then I read the note that my workers were unhappy.
A reflective paper will say: My strategy of keeping my price higher than the competition did not work well. Due to my uncompetitive pricing, I was unable to gain market share, which is essential in a market where installed base is a key competitive advantage. I learned that when competing in a market it is important to understand the characteristics of the market (i.e., how does this market work and what is essential to achieving a competitive advantage in it). I also learned that it is essential to understand and monitor the competitive environment, particularly competitors’ pricing. Even if I am pursing a differentiation strategy, my pricing must be competitive versus similarly positioned brands.
Other Requirements: Your paper must be typed in 12 point Times New Roman font with 1-inch margins on all borders. On the cover sheet, you should type your name and the following statement: “I certify that the work I submit is my own individual work, and that I have neither discussed this paper with anyone else nor received help from any other person or source.”

Watch the video “Active Shooter Response”, which will help frame your response. Be sure to read “Active Shooter Manual”
Once you have read the document, create a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for an active shooter. If your agency already has an active shooter SOP, submit that document along with a revised SOP after reading the Active Shooter Manual.

Consider this advice from businessman David Allen regarding completing projects:

Consider this advice from businessman David Allen regarding completing projects:
<
<
“You don’t actually do a project; you can only do action steps related to it. When enough of the right action steps have been taken, some situation will have been created that matches your initial picture of the outcome closely enough that you can call it ‘done’” (Allen & Allen, 2001).
<
<
In this assignment, you will design an action plan for eliminating distractions and clutter to become more productive. Then you will reflect on the action planning process and what you have learned in the course to help them relate planning, organization, and time usage to work-life balance, including productivity and a healthy lifestyle.

<
<
Step 1. List
<
List 10 things, environments, or situations which distract you or otherwise inhibit your productivity in your professional and/or academic setting(s). Do you recognize patterns or categories of your productivity inhibitors?
<
<
Step 2. Research
<
Research the steps of action planning and the most important parts of an action plan.

Step 3. Formulate
<
Synthesizing the information from your research in Step 2, formulate an action plan to increase your productivity by targeting the things, environments, or situations – either individually or in categories – which inhibit your productivity you listed in Step 1. Your action plan should include at least these parts:
<
<
Statement of the problem
<
Data associated with the problem
<
Goal statement(s)
<
At least 3 steps of action
<
Resources needed
<
Plans to monitor the implementation of the plan

Write a reflection paper of 2-3 pages including an introduction and conclusion and addressing these questions:
<
<
What have you learned about the action planning process, and what challenges did you face in developing your action plan?
<
What have you learned in the course to help you relate planning, organization, and time usage to work-life balance, including productivity and a healthy lifestyle? Why are these characteristics important?
<
What obstacles do you perceive in implementing your plan, and how might you overcome them?
<
Step 5. Compile

As an action researcher, you need to learn more about what other researchers wit

As an action researcher, you need to learn more about what other researchers with similar areas of focus have done to make a difference and the results they experienced. Understanding the interventions and innovations that others have implemented and researched should help guide your thinking and decisions in your own action research. Therefore, locating and evaluating scholarly, credible, or peer-reviewed research is a priority for action researchers like yourself in order to gain a deeper understanding about your area of focus from credible sources of information.

Prepare a handout on one of the personality theorists mentioned in the readings

Prepare a handout on one of the personality theorists mentioned in the readings this week. Your handout should summarize the main ideas of the personality theory or theorist and should work well as a study guide for an introductory psychology student.

Be sure to include the following in your handout:
Interpret your selected theorist’s contribution to the field.
Explain how this theory supports today’s efforts for diversity and inclusion in the field.

Recently there has been a discussion of value transformation within the healthca

Recently there has been a discussion of value transformation within the healthcare sector. Facilities are spending large amounts of money on consulting groups focused on value transformation practice–transforming from a fee-for-service model to a value-based model of health care. One such group that specializes in value transformation is Navigant consulting. Navigant healthcare clients include more than 300 health systems and 80% of the largest health systems in the United StatesNavigant is recognized as one of the “Best Healthcare Consulting Firms”.
Federally, Navigant supports the Department of Health and Human Services, including the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and other federal agencies on the forefront of national health issues. At the state level, they support behavioral health, developmental disabilities, Medicaid, public health, and human services agencies, as well as workers’ compensation and state employee groups. Check out the website HERE.
Value Transformation practice focuses on Improving Patient Care While Lowering Costs.
Take a look at THIS BRIEF INFOGRAPHIC https://www.changehealthcare.com/value-based-care/value-based-care-transformation-services explaining value transformation practice.
In addition, you should have watched the video in Module 4 – The Pace of Healthcare Transformation to a Value-Based System. Link here

Now considering the information provided in your readings, the infographic, and the panel discussion:
Elaborate on whether or not you agree with the value transformation model?
Do you believe the methods within the model will actually improve patient care AND reduce costs?
Do you think it will be successful? Why? Why not?
