marketing executive

Imagine that you are a marketing executive at a major telecommunication company that has been facing the issue of increased customer churn recently. You are using traditional analytical methods with financial and location data to construct a predictive model for customer churn. However, you want to leverage memo data that has been obtained from the customer contact center and local sells stores. You also believe that the Web blogs and posts contain very important information that you could use to attack customer churn. Examining the unstructured data and the structured data together may provide more insight on why customers want to leave one company and join another company.

  1. Evaluate the importance of unstructured data in the churn analysis.
  2. List other structured and unstructured data other than the memo and Web blogs that you need to use in your churn analysis.
  3. Propose a series of steps for deriving a predictive model using text and Web analytics. Provide at least one example of how the process can be integrated in the modeling process using structured data.
  4. Identify at least two technologies that you can use to construct the predictive model and highlight their pros and cons.
  5. Explain why “voice of the customer” carries much more insight into churn analysis and prevention.
  6. Suggest at least one churn prevention method that you can use to reduce your churn rate based on your model.
  7. Use at least three quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.

auxiliary variables:

There are two parts to the assignment and you need to  complete both parts.
a.  Formulate and solve a linear optimization model using the auxiliary variable cells method and write a short memo to the production manager explaining the sensitivity information. 
 b.  Solve the model without the auxiliary variables and explain the relationship between the reduced costs and the shadow prices found in part a. 
Without auxiliary variables: ????
You need to relax the conditions on the variables that you had for part a) and solve the optimization problem. For example,  you may have a constraint  a + b < 50 where 1 < a < 2.  The first one is the constraint and you will get rid of the condition 1 < a < 2 and run the analysis for the second part.

public health management

Healthcare organizations face many unprecedented challenges and opportunities. Diversity is one of the major challenges that continues to overwhelm management teams. Gender, ethnicity, and race are most noticeably lacking in top leadership roles in healthcare. There is a documented need for diverse leadership teams with transformational leadership skills to successfully lead organizations. Remediation of this gap is critical to the advancement of healthcare delivery and systems. Senior management must consider the deficiency and develop a strategic process to invoke change.
Suppose you are the Executive Director of the hypothetical organization Better Health Today, LLC. The board of directors has informed you that the organization has missed out on major federal funding opportunities over the past three to five (3-5) years. The grant reviewer’s feedback describes the organization’s lack of diversity and community support to promote social change. The board of directors has asked you to review the issues noted in the reviewer’s feedback and provide recommendations to improve the reputation of the company.
