Development With any type of organization, it requires individuals with specific skills sets to run the organization. Not only does the company need experienced employees, they need to maintain their training and competencies. Along with this, management will need to have an effective tracking process to evaluate the employees training effectiveness. Training and Education According to Health Care Britain “The importance of an ongoing education cannot be overestimated. Education is necessary, as the health care industry grows so does the specialization of the different parts of the industry. A person’s need for education does not stop at the diploma. Healthcare workers must have a career development plan for the future. To understand the effectiveness of training the organization must be able to measure the knowledge of the employee and the training process.” Lethard, A., para 2 (2000). Because the healthcare industry is constantly evolving the training and development of the healthcare workers must be ongoing. The assessment process can be done by testing, interviewing employees, and rating. Each employee must be trained, signed off on the on all policies and procedures to prevent the company and employee from law suits against them. Healthcare organizations must provide the proper training and education for their employees in order to get accurate output. Education involves learning processes using values, theories to develop training is to provide specific skills to an employee. Lethard, A., para 2 (2000) Competencies According to Lethard, A., para 3 (2000) measuring competencies in a healthcare organization have to access individual and organizational performance to assess the efficiency of their…...

...modernization and dependency theories in Africa: Critical assessment J. Matunhu Department of Development Studies, Midlands State University, Zimbabwe. E-mail: matunhuj@msu.ac.zw. Accepted 6 April, 2011 The way states and development specialists rationalize how to commit economic resources to development is influenced, to a greater extent by their level of persuasion towards specific development theories. The discourse assesses the influence of modernization and dependency theories on Africa’s development. The conclusion is that both theories have failed to help develop Africa. The discourse pins hope on the African Renaissance theory of development. Key words: Modernization, dependency, rural underdevelopment, African renaissance. INTRODUCTION Africa houses plentiful economic resources. Paradoxically, the continent languishes in poverty as evidenced by high prevalence of famine, disease and ignorance (Buthelezi, 2007). This presentation attributes the poverty to theories of development because the way society deals with underdevelopment is influenced by development theories. The presentation assesses the effect of modernity and dependency theories on Africa’s development and concludes by recommending the adoption of the African Renaissance theory to Africa’s development. In this presentation, development is viewed as a gradual transition of society to a strong socioeconomic status. In a sense, development entails an improvement in quality of human life. Some of the......

...Population and Environment Theodore Panayotou CID Working Paper No. 54 July 2000 Environment and Development Paper No.2  Copyright 2000 Theodore Panayotou and the President and Fellows of Harvard College Working Papers Center for International Development at Harvard University Population and Environment Theodore Panayotou Abstract The past fifty years have witnessed two simultaneous and accelerating trends: an explosive growth in population and a steep increase in resource depletion and environmental degradation. These trends have fueled the debate on the link between population and environment that began 150 years earlier, when Malthus voiced his concern about the ability of the earth and its finite resources to feed an exponentially growing population. The purpose of this study is to review the literature on population and environment and to identify the main strands of thought and the assumptions that lie behind them. The author begins with a review of the historical perspective. He then reviews and assesses the evidence on the relationship between population and environment, focusing on selected natural and environmental resources: land use, water use, local pollution, deforestation and climate change. The author also reviews selected recent macro and micro perspectives. The new macro perspective introduces the environment-income relationship and examines the role of population growth and density in mediating this relationship. The new micro perspective introduces......

...in wealthy, industrially-developed nations primarily located in the Western Hemisphere have become concerned with the notion of "development," or lack thereof, in the relatively poor, industrially-undeveloped nations primarily located in Africa, Central and South America and various regions throughout Asia. Unfortunately for those concerned with effecting some change, no one is quite sure what it is exactly that separates a "developed" country from an "undeveloped" country. Partly due to the inability to properly define "development," those concerned with the affairs and quality of life of people in far, distant lands have also encountered difficulties in proposing a solution that engenders some kind of successful outcome to the problem at hand. Is a country with a high Gross Domestic Product (GDP) a "developed" country? Or is development about relatively high levels of Gross National Product (GNP)? Maybe a more proper comparison to make amongst countries of varied economic development is Purchasing Power Parity (PPP). Perhaps development is not primarily a question of the static level of income a person within the country receives in a given year, but is more related to the annual rate of growth of a person's income, or of the economy as a whole. But there are still other considerations to take into account when examining the economic development of a country, such as the quality and quantity of health care (and health), education and political and religious......

...order of ideas, the current plan seeks to support the development of the human resource at Wal-Mart with emphasis on management learning and development. 2. Considerations Before actually coming to create the plan for managerial development, it is important to take into account several issues which would sit at the basis of the plan created. The first of these considerations is pegged to the need to develop the managers, which in turn is revealed by the important role played by the middle managers. In essence, the middle managers represent the link between the executives that set a company direction, mission and vision, and the staff members who ensure that the company objectives are attained. Mike Hughes and David Potter (2002) for instance mention that the role of the middle managers has suffered impressive mutations throughout the past recent. Middle managers are no longer just the heads of departments, but they represent change and evolution, they play a crucial part in "the quality of teaching and learning." Given the problems faced by Wal-Mart, it becomes obvious that the development of the managerial team is crucial to attaining company objectives, to developing the staff members and to as such enhancing organizational strength. Following this line of thoughts, it is now necessary to generate an adequate comprehension of the concept of management development. According to Karen Bright, management development represents a process by which the effectiveness......

(Thomas, 2004: 1, 2) The vision of the liberation of people and peoples, which animated development practice in the 1950s and 1960s has thus been replaced by a vision of the liberaliza- tion of economies.

...The process of educating children begins at a young age in the early childhood program. Children need to be received in a warm inviting classroom in which the social, emotional, physical and cognitive development are a priority and address on a daily basis. Meeting the children’s needs of feeling safe and nurtured at school will facilitate learning to take place. Before students entered the classrooms to be filled with factual knowledge under scripted lessons that were to accommodate all learners. Educating children these days is more like an art that requires the use of creativity and knowledge to consider the student’s needs to prepare the lessons, incorporate personal philosophies, and implement the proper pedagogic strategies to develop children’s academic potential. Being an early childhood teacher is a privilege that requires to be assumed with responsibility as early childhood teachers spend the majority of the day teaching children who’s both parents work to cover the family needs. Children at the Pre K to K start school between the ages of 3-5 depending on the program and school children are attending. For my final paper, I will identify and discuss the theories and/or philosophies that demonstrate how I envision the appropriate classroom to be for the selected age group. I will also provide an overview of the concepts I will teach in each academic area, and share some of the strategies and activities that will be implemented in the classroom which will be a......

...The Development Gap. Luca Conti 9N 8/6/15 What is development, how does it vary around the world and which two countries are we looking at today? Firstly, development is when a country begins to grow in economic value; a developed county must also have high standard of living and very good healthcare. Normally more developed countries export higher value goods that have usually been processed therefore adding value. In this issue we will be looking at two very different countries, namely, Italy and Malawi. Lets look at the stats’. Italia…. * GDP= 2.194 trillion USD * Infant mortality per 15000= 3 * Pop. Growth rate= 0.5% * Pop. Per doctor= 4.1 * Any period of colonisation= it has never been colonised * Current Pop. = 59.33 million * GDP per capita= 35,925 USD * Literacy rate (average)= 99% * Average life expectancy= Men= 82 Women= 85 * % of Pop. Unemployed= 12.4% HDI (human development index) = very high standard of living. Malawi… * GDP= 3.705 billion USD * Infant mortality= 38 of 1000 * Pop. Growth rate= 2.8% * Pop. Per doctor= 65,000 approx. * Period of colonisation= 1891 - under British rule * Current Pop. = 16,407 million * GDP per capita= 857 USD * Literacy rate (average)= 54.6% * Average life expectancy= Men= 58 Women= 61 * % of Pop.

...LONG AGO AND NOT TRUE ANYWAY BLOGGING ABOUT INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT, POLITICS AND LIVING WITH DISEASE. SUNDAY, OCTOBER 09, 2005 Four Fallacies of African Development Someone called Chris has placed a comment below my last little piece on aid and conditionality and, as is sometimes the case when he resists his impulse to troll, he has made some almost-sensible points. Or at least, points that have had much currency in the mainstream media and debates about international development. So I thought I’d take the time to discuss them here. In his post Chris wrote: ...the fact remains, Africa's problems are by and large internal…True, agricultural subsidies must be lifted by the US and the EU, but simply throwing aid money at the problem will ultimately come to no good. After all, even when African countries do possess sources of great wealth--diamonds in Sierra Leone and oil in Nigeria, for instance--those resources often end up being a curse on95% of the respective country's populace. On the other hand, a few nations have done better through internal improvements; Botswana is often cited as an example of this, but their 40% Aids rate--definitely attributable to rampant sexual activity--is impossible to overlook.  Encapsulated in this spiel are what could be termed ‘the four great fallacies of the Africa Debate’. I’ll attend to each of these in turn. Fallacy 1 - Africa’s problems are by in large internal  There’s no denying that some of Africa’s problems are......

...How a child developments is fundamentally important at a young age as it affects all aspect of their lives once the child matures. Throughout the class, we looked at many theorists during the course of the semester. The theorists opened up our minds to a world that we have never seen before and concepts about child development we have never been taught but have seen in the practical work we do every week. What makes humans unique is the ability that we have to interpret the language being used, as Lois Bloom and Margaret Lahey describe in their book Language Development and Language Disorders “language is like a code, it is a means of representation” Although, everyone is able to interpret the use of language some interpret it more than others. This delay in language, we have learned, could be for a variety of reasons. The characteristics of a child will depend on: how they were brought up, who they were brought up by, what kind of condition they were brought up in, what kind of parents the child was brought up by, if was the child brought up in poverty, etc. Language is a key part in anyone’s life as it is a major form of communication. Language is what separates us from other species to be intellectual and to rule society. Language development is important in a child’s life as it will pave the way for successful communication with various other children and other people in society. By means of talking to one another when we are young they stated, development of language......

...William Monette Mrs. Misch ENGL 1301 September 29, 2014 Development over the Years October 1, 2004, I was in the fourth grade, I was tested for Dyslexia. The test had many things like rapid naming, phonological memory, word memory, and reading comprehension. After the test I was diagnosed with Dyslexia. At the time I didn’t know what Dyslexia really was. I didn’t understand what it actually meant. I had to go to a class during school to help me with my reading and writing skills. I was very good at reading and writing growing up. I was in the Dyslexia class for over nine months. After I tested out of this class I had better knowledge of Dyslexia. Later on in school I was also diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder. I was a freshmen in high school when I was diagnosed with A.D.D. During my freshman year my grades were dropping. I wasn’t paying attention in class, I was forgetting my homework at home or I just didn’t remember if I had any homework. I was much unorganized. I had a difficult time staying on task. It took a long time to read any books or papers. Whenever the teacher would give us many directions, I would forget a lot of them. With my Dyslexia I would mix words up, or mix up letters. When reading I was always behind other kids in my class because it took time for me to read a book, or a paper. I couldn’t remember the important details of the story we would read, so I would have to read the story over and over again. With Dyslexia I had trouble fully......

Stage of Development Physical Development Cognitive Development Social Development Childhood 1.Children gain more weight and height at this stage. 2. Throughout this stage girls tend to develop slightly faster than boys. 1. During this stage children continue to advance their skills in observing and interacting with what’s around them. 2. During this stage young children’s play becomes increasingly imaginary and filled with fantasies. 1. At this stage of social development, friendship usually means sharing toys and having fun playing together. 2. They often enter a rough and tumble play which includes running, racing, climbing, or competitive games. Adolescence 1. For girls you might start to see early physical change as young as 8 years old or as old as 13 years old. 2. For boys changes usually starts around 11 or 12 years old, but they might start as young as 9 years or old as 14 years. 1.

...senses respond to external stimulation, or at a higher level, such as how do we determine depth or object shape. Questions of development focus on what capabilities humans have at the beginning of life and how the growing child comes to achieve adult levels. Much of the research on perceptual development has focused on the first year or so of life, in part to answer intriguing questions about the roles of biological mechanisms and experience in directing development. Historically, the debate has centered on whether an ability is inborn (innate) or whether it emerges after birth as the result of specific experiences. This debate has been termed the nature–nurture controversy, and it has pervaded how we attempt to understand the mechanisms underlying perceptual development. Two general views of perceptual development provide examples of the nature–nurture controversy. One view – termed constructivism – emphasizes the construction of perception through learning. For the constructivist view, the starting point is trying to make sense of sensations. In every day experience, our senses are bombarded with stimulation, and the perceiver’s task is to make meaning of this stimulation. Over time, the young or naı¨ve perceiver begins to bring order to this barrage of information. A prediction for development based on this view is that development of perception is protracted and likely to be reliant on specific experiences. A second view – termed ecological –......
