1. A population is a whole group of individuals in a particular area or setting that a particular study pertains to. All men in America who drive Fords could be considered a population for a study on what men prefer to drive in America.
2. A sample is a smaller group taken from a population for study that represents the population in question. An example of a sample would be 20 ducks taken from the pond mentioned previously.
3. Samples relate to population because a sample is taken from a population to represent it in a study or research. Once the study is completed, the information is used as a generalization for the population as a whole. A parameter is a attribute, like the average height of a basketball team that is used to describe a population. On the flip side, a statistic is an attribute used to describe a sample, like the average score of a group that was taken from the previous mentioned population would be a statistic.
4. All of the people who suffer from schizophrenia would be considered a population.
5. A group of people who are in a study of schizophrenia would be a sample.
6. The population I’m interested in would be all the first graders in a state. The sample would use to study would be all the first graders in a given city.
7. The population being drawn from would be anyone who had depression. The sample would be the people with depression chosen from the population and are broken up into four smaller groups. The independent variable is the different doses of medication given to the subject groups and the placebo given to the fourth group. The dependent variable would be the different reactions to the given treatment each person got for their group and the results. This would be measured by how the subjects felt compared to how much medication they were given. This experiment would be considered a true experiment because…...

Why Strategic Human Resource Management Is Important for an Organizarion

...resource management (HRM) becomes SHRM when the workforce is well trained so that they seek competitive advantage. Only a committed workforce may not contribute in competitive edge (Mavin, 2000). For an instance, Ann had not had a proper training before staring her shifts. Even if she is hard working and leaves a nice touch after her work, she might not be contributing in competitive advantage for KCS over other cleaning organizations. Furthermore, HRM should take place in the early stage of a corporate planning to make it SHRM. It is not about fixing employment problem in middle of organization’s operation. It is integrated with corporate strategy so that organization can have the right people at the right place at the right time(Van Donk, 2001). For example, Ann was struggling about the appraisal system because she was not aware of it while she joined KCS. Finally, authority and HR managers must have a channel for communication. Effectively HR managers will assess the role of a employee to achieve organizational goals. If senior management does not listen to HR managers, employees they will be hiring will not be able to help in organizational mission and vision. For instance, KCS did not plan what they will be doing with Ann for future; instead they employed Ann as their client base got increased. Assessing the purpose of SHRM (AC 1.2)\ Firstly, as discussed earlier, only a committed workforce is not enough to achieve competitive advantage. Ann should have gone......

...First, it analyses existing literature on the three constructs this research deals with: customer integration, fast supply network structure and efficiency. It is followed by the discussion of the research hypotheses this study intends to examine. The subsequent section introduces the sampling frame, measures and data collection. This is followed by the analyses and discussion of the results found, which explains the main theoretical and managerial contributions of this study. Finally, the conclusion provides the research limitations and opportunities for future research. 2 LITERATURE REVIEW AND RESEARCH HYPOTHESES Customer Integration In two relatively recent literature reviews, Fabbe-Costes and Jahre (2008) and van der Vaart and van Donk (2008) demonstrate that over the past decade there has been a growing consensus concerning the theoretical arguments for closely integrating different operations. The existing research on supply chain integration, however, is characterized by heterogeneous and evolving definitions and dimensions (Flynn et al., 2010). This lack of consistency in definitions is not surprising in a relatively young and multifaceted discipline such as supply chain management. SCM scholars have studied integration from different perspectives. Some focused their analysis on integration with customers (Fynes et al., 2005; Gimenez and Ventura, 2005; Sahin and Robinson, 2005) in order to ascertain the distinct contribution of such practice to performance. For......

A Project Contingency Framework Based on Uncertainty and Its Consequences

...within organisations, these are generally narrowly tailored and categorisation criteria often are not logically linked with objectives (Crawford et al., 2005). Hence there is a need for enhanced methods for relating PM approaches to projects. One path to such methods is via project contingency theory (PCT). PCT argues that the best approach to managing a project depends on context: different conditions require different project organisational characteristics, and the effectiveness of the project is related to how well organisation and conditions fit each other. PCT has developed from general organisational contingency theory, building upon innovation (e.g. Shenhar and Dvir, 2007) and preceding works and organisational (e.g. van Donk and Molloy, 2008) perspectives of the project. However the theory remains relatively narrowly based, and does not yet allow for the full range of projects or PM approaches....

Operations Strategy and Supply Chain Management

...organizations directly or indirectly, interplaying to satisfy customer’s need. This means producers, suppliers, logistics, storage etc beside the challenges and limitations integrates to ensure order fulfillment, at a cost for business continuity. Let’s take the case of Port Harcourt Refinery Company (PHRC) in Nigeria; where the integrated process connects sets of activities e.g. purchase of crude oil, and refining it into gasoline products, and then makes it available to customers. The illustration of supply chain above looks very simple but it is not, as issues like business uncertainty, ineffective decision support systems, poor inventory control, effect of globalization, inadequate IT infrastructure etcetera pose risk and limitations as Van Donk, D. P. (2008) collaborated along the process. 2.1.2 IMPROVEMENT OPTION: Supply chain parameters could be improved upon through strategic alliances, postponement, risk pooling, lean approach, collaborative forecasting, and etcetera. For instance collaborative planning, forecasting and replenishment as Attaran, M. & Attaran, S. (2007) observes, helps creates transparency in the chain, thus beings effectiveness in ‘demand planning, production scheduling, logistic planning’. It is also important to ensure information and communication sharing across the business spectrum as to reduce challenges. That is technology availability as value-added tools improves challenges via information availability. 2.1.3 OPERATIONAL AND......

...people that make us sexy.” This shows that Morgan has opposite views of Danny. His views and actions fall him into the category of third wave feminism, as he is interested in portrayal of women not being subject to man. (Sellnow, 2014) Morgan’s humor has been criticized to be demeaning in many cases. Some feminists argue that his light use of oppressive terms allow for the objectifying of women. (Kahn, 2013) When looking deeply into most, if not all of Morgan’s jokes, it is clear that this in fact isn’t the case. When trying to impress her boyfriend Josh, Mindy wants to create the perfect “sexy” outfit for him. Morgan puts her in check by saying, “Number one sexiest female organ? The butt. Number one sexiest female organ? The brain. The ba-donk-a-donk and the ba-think-a-think.” By this Morgan urges her to think of something funny and creative to wear as a costume, in which she agrees. Morgan is very much the voice of reason throughout all the episodes he appears in. The humour put into everything he says is an attempt to take very heavy lessons and give them a light spirit. Lastly Morgan is extremely protective of the people he cares about, this protective role he takes on could be seen as masculine but he does not assert it violently, rather he asserts it with love. Overall, he has qualities that pertain to both constructed female and male roles. This can be defined as androgynous, which describes ambiguous or mixed forms of gender expression. In conclusion, The Mindy......

Paper on Operations of Pz Cussons

...competition (several companies offering similar products at varying levels of quality and price) and technological advancement has revolutionized production times. Now more than ever organizations need to project market demands accurately to determine raw material requirements. There is the need for the organization to position itself within the markets such that it not only appeals to customers on the basis of quality or on the basis of price but possibly on all available market measurements. The high rate of international/global competition and the introduction of new technologies in the direction of information and communication have pushed a lot of organizations to compete in this turbulent and highly competitive international market. (Donk, D. P. V. 2008, pp. 308-309). The result of this has been the realignment of an organizations design parameters such that products developed will always meet target customers requirements, whilst maintaining the most effective and efficient production process. An organizations ability to reconcile its market requirements with those of its operations resources is the only way that within today’s unstable business environment an organization will achieve success in the marketplace. Studying PZ Cussons, a global multinational fast moving consumer goods business, this project seeks to explain the approach employed by the company to achieve strategic fit between its resources and market requirements in aiming to achieve its corporate goal.......

...extensive literature review and expert interviews, we first identify relevant practices related to DeM and DiM. We then develop a conceptual model and corresponding hypotheses aligned with the three research objectives outlined above. We utilize partial least squares (PLS) to test our hypotheses on the basis of survey data that was collected from supply chain professionals of 116 multi-national companies based in Europe. 2. Theoretical foundation and model development 2.1. Literature review and motivation The relationship between various SCM practices and supply chain performance is an extremely popular research field, which a substantial body of scholarly work has contributed to (Gunasekaran and Kobu, 2007; van der Vaart and van Donk, 2008). In the following we review the work that has addressed the impact of customer facing processes and practices on supply chain or firm performance. Lockamy III and McCormack (2004) investigate the link between SCM practices and supply chain performance based on the supply chain operations reference (SCOR) model (Supply Chain Council, 2008). They find that those practices with the highest impact include “demand planning”, “supplier transactional collaboration”, “make planning” processes, and delivery process measurement. In their study, “demand planning” is interpreted as demand forecasting, whereas other demand planning dimensions such as defining customer and product priorities were combined with more general items......

I KNOW I am probably single-handedly responsible for slowing down the progress of several projects and collabs by wading in perfectionism a little too long... and I KNOW that I can't expect to put out this volume and immediately make enough bank to purchase a three-level garage for a multi-colored Lambo and Bentley DONK collection.... well, I dunno about that last one.

Wtz1 at 7%, which was within the equivalence margin of 3%. The clinically indicated group had a significant difference in the number of PIV’s needed, which in turn decreased the overall cost tremendously. The study was strengthened by the large population size, large range of patient types, and the 100% follow-up that was conducted. The authors concluded that there was no proven beneficial evidence to restarting PIV’s routinely and that it is safe and effective to only change PIV’s when clinically indicated. . The authors’ conclusion supports this author’s research and helps strengthen the evidence supporting the minimization of patient discomfort (Rickard, Webster, Wallis, Marsh, McGrail, French, ...

How to Beat the Micros

...Most of the times they’ll show up with a set in these situations. Most of these players won’t be interested in you, they’re after the fish. However if they do start betting into you, be very careful. Passive Fish (~30+/10) – This is what is commonly known as a calling station. They don’t like to raise (as evident by their low pre flop raise stat) and don’t like to bet. They’d rather just play nice friendly poker and call your bets. Do not bluff a calling station. They will call you down with any piece of the board. These are the best players to play with because it’s very easy to extract value from them. Aggro Fish (~30+/30+) – These players are worse to play with than calling stations, but still very profitable. They’ll make a lot of donk bets, bet any untouched pot and are generally very loose and aggro. The way to counter these players is to get a premium hand (TPTK+) and let them bluff their money away. Unless they bet very small it’s usually best to just call, because most of the time they’ll try to keep pushing you off of your hand. Calling the flop and raising the turn is often a good play against these types of players (provided you have a hand), because a large part of the time they’ll convince themselves you’re stealing, and they certainly won’t stand for any of that. Regular (~12-18/~10-16) – These are the dangerous players. These are pretty standard stats for someone from 2p2. They’re likely positionally aware and playing much like you are. If a regular......
