Last, please read the Lewis (2018) article about how new interviewing techniques need to be employed because we fail to assess prospective new employees for their soft skills with traditional methods. Today’s new technology allows HR professionals to screen a group of candidates with a 20-minute test, job auditions, meeting in low-pressure locations, video interviews, and virtual reality (VR) assessments.

Hi, I’m doing my phd thesis , its about changing retail trends in the gulf count

Hi, I’m doing my phd thesis , its about changing retail trends in the gulf countries , my supervisor asked me to read about the internalization in the beginning than narrow my thesis to what I want to focus on , so now I want to write about What does internationalisation mean, why do firms internationalise, how do firms internationalise, and when is this done? The review extant literature will reveal some theories/models that cover this stream. You’ll find arguments that focuses on areas like: Factor Endowments & International Product Life Theories, Economics-oriented perspectives of internationalisation like: Internalisation (or transaction cost) theory, Eclectic paradigm, Stage of development models, Network theories, Business Strategy/Contingency theories, Resource-based theory, etc. You then link the arguments from this initial part to Retail Internationalisation (the focus of my research).
With Retail Internationalisation you’ll equally review major arguments here – meaning of retail internationalisation, and theories/models/frameworks of retail internationalisation some of which include: Hollander’s contribution, Salmon and Tordjman’s Classification, Dawson’s Assessment, Sternquist’s SIRE Model, Doherty’s contribution, Vida, Reardon, and Fairhurst’s IRI Model, Picot-Coupey’s Framework, and others.
This textbook will help enrich the understanding in this area: Nicholas Alexander and Anne Marie Doherty, (2009), International retailing International retailing, Oxford University Press.
Also, you can read some top journal papers from these journals:

National Quality Forum Metric Analysis Students will select and evaluate a quali

National Quality Forum Metric Analysis
Students will select and evaluate a quality metric relevant to their practice and describe its usage and
implications. Students will give a 10-minute presentation of their evaluation in a live small-group
discussion and provide feedback on the presentations of others in their group. Final evaluation reports
will be submitted in the form of a brief scholarly essay (200–350 words; note that this is shorter than
usual). Reports are due before the start of Week 10 live session.
Specific instructions are as follow:
• Begin by reading the overview of the Donabedien model for measuring quality of care. This will
define the framework used on the National Quality Forum (NQF) website.
• Visit the NQF website: www.qualityforum.org. Activate the pull-down menu on the upper right
side of the page labeled NQF work and select Find Measures.
• Narrow your search by selecting Process, Outcome, or Structure Measures. (These are
described in the Donabedien readings.)
• Enter additional search terms in the Measure Search search bar to focus on a specific topic. For
example, entering “diabetes” or “blood pressure” will find measures relevant to those topics.
• Take some time to explore different possibilities. Click on a metric of interest to read the details.
Once you have selected a metric, write a 200- to 350-word essay that addresses the following:
• Describe why you chose the metric, what the metric measures, how it is calculated (i.e., the
specific formula), and any other relevant details.
• Explain how the data for the metric might be obtained and who is responsible for recording and
reporting it.
• Describe some potential sources of error. How confident are you that the reported metric will
be accurate?
• Speculate as to who is affected by the metric? What action might result if the metric is found to
be higher or lower than average?

For Milestone Two, you will submit a draft of theoretical foundations (Section I

For Milestone Two, you will submit a draft of theoretical foundations (Section II of your final project) and a draft of your program selection (Section III of your final project), including all critical elements as listed below.
For the draft of your theoretical foundations (Section II), you will apply contemporary developmental psychology research and classic and contemporary theories to the selected developmental issue. You will examine the selected developmental issue through the lens of each of the core themes of nature vs. nurture, continuity vs. discontinuity, and stability vs. change. This section of Milestone Two should be one to two pages in length.
For the draft of your program selection (Section III), you will research and select a program that targets the developmental issue selected in Milestone One. It will be critical that you research the program at a high level to determine if there is enough research and data available to provide a full evaluation as required for the final project. It is highly advised that you review the program evaluation criteria in the rubric for the final project prior to completing this milestone. The nature of the program as a promotional, preventative, or prescriiptive program should be clear and well supported by the information, and the selection criteria for an individual to become part of the program should be described in detail. A detailed review of the methods utilized by the program to meet its intended goals is required. The program selection includes an examination of which developmental theory provided the foundation for the development of the program and its methods. This should include a review of how well the program remains aligned or consistent with the foundational developmental theory, as well as the ways in which it may vary in its assessments and methods. In your response, consider which theory may better align with the elements that are inconsistent with the primary or stated developmental theory. This section of Milestone Two should be three pages in length.
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed in your milestone submission:
II. Research and Theoretical Foundations: Apply contemporary developmental psychology research and classic and contemporary theories to the selected developmental issue.
A. Analyze contemporary developmental psychology research in explaining the selected developmental issue. In other words, what does research have to say about the evolution of your selected developmental issue? Be sure to support your position with specific examples.
B. Apply the three core themes of developmental psychology to the selected developmental issue.
i. ii. iii.
Where does the selected issue fall on the continuum of nature versus nurture? Be sure to substantiate your claims with specific scholarly research.
Where does the selected issue fall on the continuum of continuity versus discontinuity? Be sure to substantiate your claims with specific scholarly research.
Where does the selected issue fall on the continuum of stability versus change? Be sure to substantiate your claims with specific scholarly research.
III. Program Selection: Identify an existing program that targets the selected developmental issue for prevention or treatment.
A. Discuss the target of the program in terms of whether the program promotes healthy development, targets prevention of a developmental
issue, or provides actual treatment for an issue. In other words, is the program promotional, preventative, or prescriiptive?
B. Determine the extent to which the assessment and treatment methods employed by the program address the selected developmental issue
across diverse populations.
1. What is the process for an individual with the selected developmental issue to be admitted to the selected program? What admissions
policies or procedures might need to be considered in terms of cultural, ethnic, or socioeconomic standing?
2. What methods are utilized by the program to provide intervention, health promotion, or treatment for the developmental issue with
regard to cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic sensitivity?
C. Analyze the selected program’s methods for the developmental theory and research that you feel were chosen to serve as its foundation.
1. Does the program clearly stick to the core concepts of the developmental theory in its approach to assessment? Be sure to substantiate your claims with specific examples and research.
2. Do the treatment or intervention methods vary from what the developmental theory would support or recommend? Be sure to explain your rationale.
3. How might the assessment, prevention, or treatment methods be aligned with a different developmental theory? Be sure to justify your position with research.
Rubric
Guidelines for Submission: Students should provide a five- to six-page essay as a Microsoft Word document that thoroughly addresses the critical elements outlined above in APA format. No abstract is necessary, and title and reference pages will not be credited as part of the page count.
