1 Induction
Induction Training - Is training which is provided to all new employees by the employer to assist the new employee in adjustment to their new job, tasks and to help them become familiar with their new role, and work environment and the people around them/people they will be working with. It gives the new employee a basic overview of the company and its services as well as their role in the environment. It also allows for the employer to establish with the new employee what is expected of them in terms of working hours, dress code, any policies and procedures to be adhered to, it is also an opportunity for the employee to establish what their entitlements are in regards to holidays, what the procedures are for requesting holidays etc.
Induction training clearly benefits the new employee as it allows them a good introduction to all aspects of their new role and what is expected of them, it also allows them to establish things like where the canteen is, where toilets are, break times, procedures for holiday requests, how to inform of absence (sickness) etc.
It is also beneficial to the employer as it allows them an opportunity early on to establish clear foundations and expectations, the company policies and organisational structure job, department and company goals and objectives.

...Office Management Assessment Task 1 Learning Outcome 1 1. There are three types of decision making – strategic, tactical and operational. However the two main ones are strategic and operational. Strategic decision making are long term, high risk decisions which are made by high level management in an organisation. These decisions are unstructured and are most likely to be made after significant planning and research. Tactical decisions which are medium term decisions can be used to help implement a strategic decision. One possible strategic decision that the partners at Classic Interiors could make would be to expand Classic interiors and create a website selling their products. Setting up a company website is a strategic decision as it is a very high risk decision as if the website fails to take off; Classic Interiors will lose a lot of money as costs can be high for setting up a professional website. Setting up a company website is a strategic decision as it is unstructured and a lot of research and information will need to be gathered before the business can start to plan creating their website. Operational decision making are short term, low risk decisions which are made by low level management within an organisation. These decisions tend to be structured and affect the day to day activities of a company. When making operational decisions, there is a circle of points to help when planning and carrying out these decisions. These points are to define the problem...

Project Management Office the purpose and mission of a PMO? The purpose of a Project Management Office is to define and maintain projects management standards that must be implemented and adhered to throughout the organisation. The project management office must standardise the way that projects are executed by ensuring that policies, processes and procedures are repeated in exactly the same way in all of the projects that are performed in the organization. The Projects Management Office is the source of documentation, guidance and metrics on the practice of project management and execution. According to Taylor, J (2006) the idea of a Project Management Office is not a new concept. It is an old concept that was brought to live again as a result of the need to manage projects, and specifically Information Technology projects, better. Information Technology organizations have struggled to deliver projects on time and within budget more than any others. In the mid-1990s, approximately 80 percent of all IT projects failed, and of those that were restarted, about 50 percent failed. Therefore, the challenge to manage projects more closely has caused a resurgence of PMO implementations. The purpose of the PMO can be divided into the following activities: Project management methodology: The most important activity of a PMO is to establish a project management methodology. In order for the PMO to establish a project management methodology it is required that the current business environment......

Leadership is about setting and not just reacting to programs, identifying problems, and initiating change that makes for important improvement rather than managing change. Last but not least, Leaders at all levels, military and private sector are faced with challenges on a daily basis. Without acceptable techniques to apply to these problems the leaders will struggle to fulfill their mission. * AUTOCRATIC LEADERSHIP The autocratic leadership style is often identified as overly challenging with basically a one way street of communication. The leader is seen as a dictator and is normally focused on the accomplishment of goals through force, management and even pressures. Decision making is not shared and the mentality developed is “do it or else”. However, the autocratic leadership style can be effective in the right situation. In fact, practically all leaders will have to apply this style at some time during their career.

Outcomes Management of Nursing

...Outcomes Measurement and Data Management Project: Hospital Readmissions Charmein Garner and Celeste Thomas Loyola University New Orleans Outcomes Management Project Defined Issue or Problem of Interest The selected problem of interest is hospital readmissions after being discharged from hospitals/medical facilities. Several patients enter the hospital and soon after discharge are catapulted back into the seemingly revolving doors of the hospital. Readmission rates affect all areas of healthcare. Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) has targeted readmissions as a guideline of poor quality of care. Engaging patients during their inpatient admission as they transition to alternate levels of care may reduce readmission by 50% (Service, 2008). The intent of this proposed paper is to take a look at hospital readmissions rates in correlation with the patient being elderly and having a diagnosis of heart failure and assess what can be done to positively change these statistics, which increase the quality of care we as healthcare professionals provide to our patients. A Rationale for Selecting the Issue or Problem of Interest Hospital readmissions can occur throughout the patient’s transition through the healthcare system. Many times readmissions occur among those who are frail and have chronic conditions. Readmissions account for approximate 18% of Medicare patients, of this 13%, are suspected to be avoidable and are directly linked to poor quality. Quality......

The Project Management Office System

...Project Management Office The project office is the office or department responsible for establishing, maintaining, and enforcing project management processes, procedures, and standards. It provides services, support, and certification for project managers [web definition]. In a broader sense, if an organization undertakes one or two project at any given time, it may able to easily implement project management discipline. However, the larger an organization gets, and the more projects that are executed at one time, the more difficult it becomes to develop a comprehensive methodology, train everyone and enforce the consistent use of the technology on all projects. Without this consistency, the full value of implementing a common value of a project management methodology is not reached (TenStep, Inc). There are many organizations that have started realizing the potential value of establishing a Project Management Office to strengthen their competitive advantage. The PMO structures project management into an organized, systematic approach that includes the following goals (Engle, 2005): 1. Project Definition: Goals and objectives, organization charts, and roles and responsibilities are documented. Some companies adopt a charter that lays out every aspect of the project before the first dollar is spent. 2.
