Initial Post (Answer both Questions). (As a reminder, for all posts, no linked documents. If you type it out on a document, copy and paste the posts into the DB textbox using the “remove formatting” option. That way we can all easily read the material.)
First, download the Attitudes Towards Unions test and complete it (see link below). Read each column and select the best answer for you. If you are unsure of which column to check, take your “best guess.” After taking the test, count up the number of A’s and the number of B’s you selected. Depending upon what you selected, you will either support unions or support more business.
Attitude Towards Unions Download
Q1a What was your total A’s and B’s? Share with the class the possible causes for any positive or negative feelings about labor relations/unions. Find one or two questions that you strongly identify with and share why. Then try and find a current event around your view and share with the class how this is still an important matter. Try to find a well written publication that discusses the issue rather than a generic news source.
Q1b. Describe your union experience, or if none, research current benefits and downsides of being a union member (give a few examples), and comment on whether or not you would like to be part of a union.
Draft a fully developed essay describing in detail your overall test results, two questions that stood out and why do you think you feel this way, and evaluate some benefits of being in a union.
Give examples supported with research.
Be sure to use academic, peer reviewed articles, studies, trade journal source(s) published within 5 to 6 years beyond the course text to support your ideas – see grade rubric. A simple internet, .com, blog or web search in most cases is not academic. Please work with the librarians. Text with them.
Don’t Quote Sources Unless Absolutely Necessary: Overusing quotations often causes more problems than it helps. For example, using a quote to make a point “jigsaws” the quoted point into your point causing the message to be vague, narrowly focused or overly generalized. Further, quotations often result in “sound bites” rather than explaining the main point(s) of the source. As a solution, the American Psychological Manual (APA) 7th Ed. recommends that students summarize the information in their sources (what is the main point(s) or purpose of the work?) rather than directly quoting from the author(s) because paraphrasing allows students to fit the material to the context of their paper to ensure the message is clear. Grading includes ensuring quoting is kept to a minimum and that the summarizing of the source is accurate and clearly connects to the students

This module, you will review concepts related to how agencies are set up and wha

This module, you will review concepts related to how agencies are set up and what they do, how consumers make decisions, as well as what drives them towards making those said decisions. Each prompt for this module will explore various aspects of these concepts and help you identify, describe, compare, explain and discuss the importance of these concepts as they relate to IMC campaign development. This module will also help you as you begin planning for your research assignment and research project.
Question 1 – Ch. 3. Briefly summarize the different ways an agency can be set up (e.g. centralized, decentralized, and in-house), as well as the different services an agency may provide (e.g. full-service, account service, marketing service, agency organization, and structure). Paraphrase these concepts and cite your work. No direct quotes. Additionally, discuss how technology has influenced these practices in communication and agency work.
Question 2 – Ch. 4. Figure 4–1 presents a basic model of consumer decision-making. Describe the model, and explain what happens at each step of the process. As you explain each step, be sure to explain how cognitive dissonance may play a factor in the decision-making process. Additionally, why is this theory (i.e. cognitive dissonance) so important to marketers? How might schedules of reinforcement help customers manage their cognitive dissonance? Be sure to provide examples to illustrate your point.
Question 3 – Ch. 4. Explain Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of needs and Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalytical theory. Be sure to explain the differences between these two theories (Again, since we live in a visually stimulating world, feel free to make a chart to capitalize on these comparisons). Additionally, how might these two motivational theories influence how marketers conduct their market research? (Consider Figure 4-3 as you answer this question). Finally, what challenges do Christians face as they consider these two theories? Do these theories align or contradict with our Christian worldview? Be sure to use examples to illustrate your point.

W14405-XLS-ENG buy vs rent case.xlsx

A recent MBA graduate had been renting a condominium, and a similar unit next door had just been listed for sale. Now facing the classic buy-versus-rent decision, the young grad decided it was time for her to apply some of the analytical tools she had acquired in business school – including “time value of money” concepts – to her personal life.
The Learing Objective of this case is to review and provide practical applications of several time-value-of-money concepts.To provide an understanding of how to estimate cash flows and why opportunity costs can be important.To introduce students (informally) to the net present value (NPV) framework.To illustrate the fact that most decisions can be evaluated quantitatively, using time-value-of-money concepts to supplement qualitative considerations. This case can be used to help students to understand time-value-of-money concepts, as well as the practical applications of such concepts.
