Scenario The first step in creating meaningful information to develop a business

Scenario
The first step in creating meaningful information to develop a business report for decision making. The business report includes the analyzed raw data, effectively presents the analysis results in text and graphical format, as well as calculate any required statistics.
The second step is interpreting and explaining the graphs and statistics to understand the impact in the practical business context.
In the last assessment, you were asked to create the first part of your business analytics report by introducing a company, analyzing company stock data, developing graphs, and calculating some descriiptive statistics.
In this assessment, you will adjust your business report to minimize limitations of one year’s worth of data. You will use the same company for this assessment and you will use 5 years of data!
You will also enhance your introduction or business context section of your business report based on your new graphs and your interpretation of the data graphs and descriiptive statistics over a five year period. Your interpretation efforts of graphs and descriiptive statistics will explicitly connect in the conclusion area. Conclusions and recommendations are the final effort in the development of a practical business report and should be supported by citations. Remember that opinion is not allowed.

Write 3-5 pages on strategy and culture as it relates to your topic of research,

Write 3-5 pages on strategy and culture as it relates to your topic of research, organization, and problem or opportunity in your capstone project, an effectiveness improvement plan.
The next component of your capstone project will focus on evaluating the strategy of your plan. Examine your approach in terms of strategic HRM for organizational success and competitive advantage. Consider whether your plan is aligned to the business strategy. Evaluate the connection between HRM strategy and organizational strategy in the global environment if applicable. Make certain to assess the importance of HRM strategy to organizational sustainability and specific firm initiatives.
HRM strategies form the nucleus of a successful organization. They bring together the elements of culture, organization, and HR systems for synergy and effectiveness. Without these strategies, and without leadership that is not only willing but serious about implementing, monitoring, and refining them, the organization will lose valuable ground. HRM strategies can be used to support the employee experience and make the organization successful and competitive.
Research current articles that explore strategy and culture to complete the following:
Analyze HRM’s role in building organizational culture.
Develop a strategy for working within the organizational culture, as you develop leadership and consultation approaches for implementing your plan to improve organizational effectiveness.
Assess the cultural factors that will likely affect the development and implementation of your plan.
Consider the employee life cycle and employee experience within your selected organization.
Analyze both the ethical and the legal responsibilities related to culture, both in the organization and in society as a whole.

Knowledge Transfer Many employers do not have a plan to manage and transfer know

Knowledge Transfer
Many employers do not have a plan to manage and transfer knowledge. Because workforce dynamics have changed, there is a greater need than ever for a knowledge-transfer strategy. Business wisdom is taken from organizations with retirements, resignations, and terminations, leaving companies more likely than not to have less growth capacity and less efficiency, especially in the short run.
In the past, the expectation of passing along knowledge and leaving a legacy was a good fit with the values of long-tenured employees who spent their careers with the same company. But in the modern workplace, where four generations work side by side, knowledge is not always well-filtered throughout an organization.
“As the Baby Boom generation of corporate leaders and experts approaches retirement, businesses in the U.S., Canada, and many European nations face the loss of experience and knowledge on an unprecedented scale,” says Diane Piktialis, Mature Workforce Program Leader at The Conference Board. “Younger workers can’t be counted on to fill the void, as they lack the experience that builds deep expertise. They also tend to change jobs frequently, taking their technological savvy and any knowledge they’ve gained with them.”
Knowledge does not exist in a vacuum, so it is important to first identify and evaluate what kind of knowledge company executives are interested in capturing and sustaining.
Because so much knowledge transfer is cross-generational, from long-tenured to newer employees, an understanding of different learning styles based on generation facilitates the process. Understanding generational learning preferences and adapting how knowledge is conveyed can make the difference between merely harvesting knowledge and actually using it.
Adaptations should be made when the knowledge is specific to the organization and is mission critical, and when the less knowledgeable employee has specific generational learning preferences. For example, employees entering the workforce may prefer getting Instant Messages (IM) in real time rather than setting a schedule to meet. Gen Y employees may set up blogs to capture knowledge. Firms considering or using knowledge transfer processes should assess their readiness for Instant Messaging, blogs, wikis, RSS feeds, podcasts, and virtual reality.
There are many knowledge transfer methods available, including training seminars, formal education, interviews, mentoring, apprenticeships, instant messaging, job transfer, simulations and games, peer assists, communities of practice, storytelling, wikis, blogs, white papers, and conferences.

Case Assignment
For this Case Assignment you will be completing and analyzing a matrix following the Knowledge Silo Matrix instructions in the third video above. (The team you choose could be a current or past work group, a group of committee members, a group of family members, members of a rock band, or any group where you know the expertise needed and the skill levels of the employees/members.)
You may (a) complete the matrix by hand or (b) use the Knowledge Silo Matrix Word form. Remember these key points:
The Knowledge Silo Matrix (KSM) is a high-level tool of knowledge silos. Think bigger picture. For example, if you were filling out a KSM for building a house, some example silos would be Plumbing, Electrical, Flooring, Insulation, etc. Not “Weld a pipe” or “Test for adequate water pressure.” The blog article, Tip for Better, Faster Knowledge Transfer—It’s Not What People KNOW, It’s What They Know How to DO, provided by The Steve Trautman Co., addresses the important distinction between Knowing vs. Doing. This will help you create a more actionable KSM.
Once you have your matrix completed, then respond to the following questions using the section headings in your paper that are marked in bold below. Utilize at least two sources of outside information from other authors; be sure to cite them and provide a reference list at the end.
Introduction—This section is often written after you have completed the rest of your paper.
Work Team Overview—Provide an overview of the work team you have assessed in the Knowledge Silo Matrix. Who are they, how long have they been in the group, and what are their jobs?
Skill Level in Silo—Discuss each group member’s job in terms of his/her silo status—discussing why you have evaluated them as purple, green, yellow, or white.
Matrix Analysis—Analyze what the matrix tells you.
Look at each silo and analyze what you see and what needs to be done to minimize the knowledge risk.
Look at the colors assigned to each employee (horizontal colors). What should be done next to minimize the risk related to each employee as well as to enhance the performance of the work team? Be sure to discuss the training needed (or not) for each member and what the format of the training should be given what you learn from the matrix.
Application of the Matrix–Discuss what you have learned from this exercise and the strengths of the Knowledge Silo Matrix approach and the challenges you see managers could face in an organization using the Matrix.
Conclusion
Submit BOTH your Knowledge Silo Matrix and your discussion covering the points above by the module due date.

What you need to do
Write a comprehensive answer to one of the above questions. This must include the following:
1. A clear answer to the question (thesis), this should already be apparent in your introduction, and likely repeated in your conclusion.
2. Your introduction should summarise your essay’s main arguments or claims (justification). These main arguments should then be used to structure the main body of your essay (e.g. one paragraph for each main argument). Think of your introduction as a roadmap for your reader, in terms of what they can expect from the logical development of your essay, all in service of your central thesis.
3. In the main body of your essay, develop your arguments clearly and coherently, dealing with each one in turn.
5. You might find it helpful to use sub-headings for each of the main arguments you develop. Make sure that at each step you make reference to how this particular claim or argument helps you to justify the central thesis of your essay.
6. For each of your arguments, provide detailed evidence (support), either through empirical examples or through reference to the literature.
7. Apply the theoretical ideas and concepts learned over the course of the module wherever relevant, demonstrating your knowledge of them.
8. Be analytical and critical: demonstrate that you have the ability to analyse and evaluate the existing literature. Remember that with this essay you are participating in an ongoing academic debate on this particular topic. Making sure to always support your claims with evidence (‘show’ the reader, rather than simply ‘tell’ them something).
9. Reference a minimum of 10 sources for this essay, 3 of which should appear on the relevant module resource lists (uploaded and can be used as references expect for those who are titled handouts, please do not use the handout material as reference in your research) (with others discovered during the course of your own independent research). The above is the minimum required number of sources you should actively engage with in your essay.
10. Include in-text citations (Harvard Style) and a reference list.
Essays should not exceed 3000 words including in-text citations (excluding reference list).
While you will likely begin your research using the uploaded handouts (please do not use the handout material as reference in your research)

Use the passage below to help answer the question above, if you need to make up a story to get a better essay that’s ok.
For the question above the essay should not be no longer than 400 words.
Where can I begin? As of a young age my parents were determined to raise me in a cultural, spiritual and loving surrounding. I was born in the United States, however my parents decided it’s best to raise me and my brother in our home country (Ethiopia). When I came of age now I understand the impact of their choices on our foundation of character. Growing up my parents tried their best to take us to different places in Ethiopia and also abroad in Europe and Asia. I grew fond of learning other languages, cultures, and lifestyles; in time appreciating and exploring the world became a big part of me.
Besides the passion I have for learning and exploring other cultures, this opportunity of studying abroad can improve my academic and professional career by challenging me to go to a place I have never been before and develop my survival skills, it can help me develop my communication skills and push me to network with others out of my comfort zone while earning credits towards my degree. Since it will be my first time traveling by myself, I am looking forward to gaining high value skills such as intercultural communication, adaptability, and problem-solving skills from this experience. I believe that this program will help me learn how to multitask, overcoming fear of being by myself and adapting to my surroundings alongside achieving great academic results.
Second question, on a different page (IMPORTANT)
