Cross Cultural Management Issues in Russia

Part 1 –Country Profile
Part I is an assessment of the Russia economic, political, legal, and cultural environments. The goal is to learn about Russia in-depth and to figure out how to do business in Russia culture.  Use credible, academic sources of information, and do not use Wikipedia as your main information source. Prepare a written report in the form of an executive summary of facts using headings and subheadings. List the categories, followed by the facts. Also, make sure you indicate the source of your information. (I upload the PPT about Part1, maybe you can use it)
Part 2 –Cross-Cultural Management Issues in Assigned Country
For the second part of the project, imagine that Lindsay Sooner, a 23-year old OU graduate with little experience working abroad, is sent on an expatriate assignment to the country you profiled in Part 1 of your project. Lindsay will have to travel frequently and potentially even live abroad in that country. She is going to have to learn to manage employees effectively and will also have to learn how to work with a managerial team comprised of host country nationals (i.e., people from the host country). For this assignment, I would like you to select a  business situation that Lindsay will likely find herself in when working abroad in Russia: Lindsay is trying to motivate subordinates to work hard on a project. ( 12-point font, 1-inch margins; tables, figures, and references may be over the 7-page limit.  Please use headings and subheadings.  Any  section  of  the  paper derived from another author or publication, or copied directly from another source, requires proper citation—do not plagiarize )

  • The way health care providers communicate with patients is continually evolving. In today’s society, patients demand timely information that is easily accessible. As a manager, you may play a role in the decision to modify how you and your staff communicate with your patient population.
  • Assume the role of practice manager for a large, multi-specialty group practice. It has been proposed that you begin using email for patient communication. Develop a presentation using Prezi or PowerPoint, addressing the following:
    • Audience: Physicians and office managers
    • Advantages and disadvantages of using e-mail communication for patient care
    • Protection of privacy and confidentiality of patient information
    • Conduct additional research to determine the preference of both health care providers, and patients, regarding e-mail or other forms of electronic communication. What does the research say?
  • A minimum of three scholarly sources should be included in APA format.
  • Submit Patient Communication Presentation – either PowerPoint (.ppt) or Prezi.
    • If you use Prezi, a presentation link should be uploaded within a Word document, with your name, date, and course ID.

Critical Essay About: Culture and Leadership

Critical Thinking:  

I need your help for writing essay (4 pages not including the cover page and references page)  

The topic as below:

The workplace is becoming more global in nature. It is important for  leaders to understand and manage these differences in workplace culture  and diversity. GLOBE research identified six global leadership behaviors  that are considered important in various cultures in varying degrees:

  1. Charismatic/value-based
  2. Team oriented
  3. Participative
  4. Human oriented
  5. Autonomous
  6. Self or group protective.

Explain what each of the six terms means in terms of leadership  behaviors. Choose one of the following cultures: Anglo, Latin American,  or Confucian Asian and explain the similarities and differences to  leadership behaviors in the culture of Saudi Arabia.

As a manager with an employee from each of those cultures (Anglo,  Latin American, or Confucian Asian), explain how you might change your  leadership style, or support your reasoning for expecting the employee  to change behaviors to work within the Saudi Arabian culture.

Directions:

– Write an essay that includes an introduction paragraph, the essay’s   body, and a conclusion paragraph to address the assignment’s guide   questions. Do not address the questions using a question-and-answer  format. 

-APA style should be used

-Font will be: Times roman 12, and double space should be between lines

-At least three scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles will be used as references (including the below one).

Critical thinking: Project Management

review Ch-6 “Management of your time and stress” from your textbook, understand the concepts of time management and time robbers and answer the questions given below with examples.  Use APA style and review three or more peer-reviewed journals to support your answer. 

1. Why project managers manipulate their time to get work done. Discuss with any examples you might have come across. 

2. What is effective time management? How project managers convert time from a constraint to a resource. Give reasons. 

3. Discuss on any two-time robbers in project management with examples.

Applying the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM) and Risk Identification and Mitigation

Two-part assignment: All parts must be at least 200 words unless otherwise noted. Please read all attachments and follow ALL instructions.

Part 1: Applying the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM)

Analyze the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM). Using the course text and an article from ProQuest as references, address the following:

  • Explain how the      CAPM assists in measuring both risk and return.
  • Explain how the      CAPM assists in calculating the weighted average costs of capital (WACC)      and its components. 
  • Illustrate why      some managers have difficulty applying the Capital Asset Pricing Model      (CAPM) in financial decision making.
  • Identify the      benefits and drawbacks of using the CAPM.

Part 2:   Risk Identification and Mitigation

Using the annual report from the company that you have selected for your Final Project, discuss the risks the company faces and the actions they take to mitigate those risks. Refer to the Management Discussion and Analysis section of the annual report for this information.

As part of your response consider whether you think the risk mitigation techniques are reasonable.  Discuss what others concerns or advice you would offer if you had the opportunity.

Include in your post a calculation for the probability of one of the risks identified by your company.  This information may not be available in the annual report, therefore you will likely need to conduct research and critical thinking to complete this calculation.
