Let’s apply what we’ve learned to the dreaded “conversion experience”. The current operating system where you work is on its last legs and it’s time to upgrade or switch. What factors go into making this decision?
Follow the steps below and use the bullets in Step 4 to structure your paper.
Step 1. Describe
Describe the characteristics needed to make an any computer operating system viable for your organization. [If you’re not currently working outside the home, think of an organization you know.]
Research an open source (e.g., Linux) and a proprietary alternative (e.g., latest MS Windows OR Mac OS). Some things to think about:
What does your organization do with computers?
Who does your organization interact with? How does it interact?
What would you look for if you were planning to switch systems?
Step 2. Analyze
Using the economic concepts from this course, analyze your own organization and how its needs fit your research of operating systems.
Describe the relevant aspects of your current computer system(s).
What are all of the costs involved in switching to another operating system? (hardware? software? what else?)?
Are there benefits to the new software/hardware for your organization? Drawbacks?
Step 3. Apply theories
Discuss your findings in relationship to the readings for this module. Use the economic theories and concepts to support your analysis and conclusions.

In no less than 300 words, make an initial post in response to the following prompt.
The question lingers about why the WHO would be inclined to impugn the character and reputation of the healthcare available in the United States when an argument can be made that the rest of the world needs a free market American healthcare system and the discoveries and innovation of U. S. entrepreneurs and researchers, as described by Dr. Atlas in Chapter 6, that arise out of it.
Would an accurate portrayal the quality of healthcare in the United States pose a threat to the popular acceptance of socialized medicine abroad considering the significant taxation necessary to support it and the relinquishment of autonomy, freedom and access that necessarily accompanies it? What do you think?

Watch the videos “What is Cause Marketing” and “Why Cause Marketing is Important

Watch the videos “What is Cause Marketing” and “Why Cause Marketing is Important” in the LEARN section for this week.
A cause marketing campaign is a promotional effort between a for-profit brand and a not-for-profit charity to build positive awareness of the for-profit brand. When the consumer buys a for-profit brand, a portion of the sale generally goes to the charity. Thus, the consumer feels good about supporting the charity and this positive goodwill is then carried over to the brand. This is one of the reasons why the strategic choice of the charity is so important. All three of these elements must be included for a cause marketing campaign so everyone wins!
Research and discuss a cause marketing campaign that impressed you. In your discussion include:
the for-profit brand,
the charity (not for profit),
why this association works to support the for-profit brand, and
how the consumer is involved through a purchase.
This should be a 300 – 500-word discussion.
**Read and respond to at least one (1) of your classmate’s posts with a thoughtful, engaging, or challenging response.
NOTE FROM INSTRUCTOR:
Marketers–
Your discussion this week should focus on an existing cause marketing campaign that impressed you. I am providing a discussion on the strategic thinking that goes into developing a cause marketing campaign to give you guidance on what to look for in identifying a cause marketing campaign.
A cause marketing campaign can be an effective strategy to support a for-profit brand or a not-for-profit charity, and build consumer brand loyalty all in one. To earn the maximum value from a cause marketing campaign, the choice of a charity partner and how the consumer is involved in this effort are critical.
The for-profit brand for this discussion is my hypothetical dog walking business. As you may remember, I am creating a dog walking business targeting seniors in Tampa, Florida.
The choice of the charity partner needs to relate to the mission of the for-profit brand. There needs to be a connection, or association, for the goodwill of the charity to carry over on to the brand. This is one of the key elements in creating a cause marketing campaign that works.
The charity that I will be supporting is Pet Partners (no author, 1). Pet Partners is a pet therapy program designed to provide safe therapy visits with animals in nursing homes, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and schools.
Why these associations work is based on a very strategic choice. I specifically chose this charity because I believe their mission is very closely aligned with the mission of my hypothetical business. Additionally, Pet Partners is not a large organization that is dominated by a significant number of other for-profit brands that will overshadow my marketing efforts.
There are many other well-known brands that already partnered with the Humane Society or anti- cruelty charitable organizations. As a result, I cannot own this relationship and use it to maximize my brand awareness. Too many other for-profit brands have already done this and the marketspace is saturated. This is terrific for the Humane Society, but not for my dog walking business.
How the consumer is involved is one of the most important elements of this campaign. January is national dog walking month and a perfect time in Tampa to debut my cause marketing campaign. Five percent of the sale of any dog walking service purchased in January will be donated directly to Pet Partners.
My target consumer will buy my dog walking service and support a worthy charity at the same time through minimal effort. They will feel good about themselves for supporting a charity while also enjoying the benefits of my brand. This is what makes a cause-related marketing campaign a win-win opportunity for everyone and perfect to promote my hypothetical dog walking business.

PART 3: PARENTING ACTION PLAN
You’ve crafted your case study. You’ve done your research on the topic. Now it’s time to identify some solutions in the form of a Parenting Action Plan.
Your Parenting Action Plan should be about 2000-3000 word in length and follow APA style (7th edition). Be sure to use in-text citations and include a reference list.
Copy and paste your case study at the beginning of your document to provide the context for your research essay. (This will not count towards your word total.)
Your essay should be written in your own words and you should always cite any ideas that come from another source. Do not use quotations or copy verbatim from another author.
Your action plan can build on your existing research essay, but the action plan itself will include a few additional components (denoted with an * below). The research you have done should be carefully woven into your action plan. In other words, don’t just copy and paste your research essay and tack on more words. Use the research to justify the actions you are proposing.
Statement of the problem: A statement of the key issues that must be explored in order to resolve your case study.(This can be the same as the statement in your research essay)
Incorporation of at least 10 credible sources from within the past 10 years that can be used to support a parenting action plan. At least 5 of these sources must be scholarly social science research articles, and at least 3 of the sources must have been published within the last 2 years.
*Incorporation of parenting or developmental theories to provide a framework for the proposed action plan.
*Description of potential sites of impact (Step 6 of the Planning Table).

Correct use of in-text citations and corresponding reference list (APA 7th edition).
Use of APA 7th edition format (1” margins, standard font, double spacing, page numbers, etc.).
Demonstration of strong writing skills.
Submit your essay to the assignments folder and run the paper through Turnitin.com (You can do this from within the assignments folder. No need to use a separate account).
