Assignment 5: Public Health Preparedness

You have just been hired as a new Vice President of Quality and Safety for a full-service 600-bed government healthcare organization. Within your first month on the job, the national security threat level has been raised to Imminent, which means there is a credible, specific, and impending terrorist threat against the United States and your facility may be directly impacted. The Chief Executive Officer has requested an immediate six to eight (6-8) page report of your proposal for handling such a situation.

Assignment 2: Discussion—Differences Between Value And Returns

Evaluating the benefit an opportunity can provide is complex. When measuring an economic benefit, you must look at the real return, the nominal return, and the overall value. In many cases, a project might generate a negative return in the short term but may be of value in the long term. You may take on a project for its business, knowing that the project is a losing proposition but will compensate for this loss by bringing in a new project later that will generate a positive return, or future value. This assignment will illustrate this concept. Firms need to distinguish between value creation and the returns they obtain from their investments.


Locate an article from the Internet or the Argosy University online library resources that deals with firms distinguishing between value creation and the returns they obtain from their investments. You can consult sources such as the Wall Street JournalFinancial TimesBloomberg Markets, the EconomistUS News and World Report, and other publications for conducting this research.

On the basis of the selected article, address the following questions:

  • What are some of the strategies that firms engage in to create value?
  • What is the difference between adding value in the value chain and creating returns for shareholders?
  • Why does adding value to the firm and creating returns for shareholders in the short run and long run matter?

Submission Details:

  • By the due date assigned, in a minimum of 500 words, post your responses to this Discussion Area. Cite the sources used to formulate your opinion.
  • Through the end of the module, respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts. While responding, think about the activities performed by a firm that would generate value and how this value can be used to generate returns for the firm.

Write your initial response in 300–500 words. Your response should be thorough and address all components of the discussion question in detail, include citations of all sources, where needed, according to the APA Style, and demonstrate accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation

Assignment 3: Effects Of Price Changes

Price changes can have a significant impact on the overall economy of a nation. A product experiencing price change can lead to an exponential change in the prices of related products. The price of oil provides a good example of this concept. As oil prices increase, the price of gasoline also increases. As almost all products rely on gasoline, either in the production process or in the distribution process, the prices of these products also increase. As prices increase and incomes of consumers remain steady, spending decreases and products or services that have an elastic demand suffer. This assignment looks at some products you may be familiar with and allows you to analyze how price changes impact the overall economy.


Consider the last product or service you purchased for more than $50, excluding gasoline.

  • If the price of that product or service went up by 10% overnight, how would you adjust your behavior in the short term?
  • How would you adjust your behavior in the long term?
  • If you decide not to buy this product again, what will you buy instead?
  • Analyze who will be more sensitive to price changes in what kind of products.
