Re: The Action Plan
1. The Situation: At Subway Restaurant, the winter months are especially tough and the low revenue generates a problem. The purpose of the report is identifying a problem at Subway and developing a plan that solves the problem.
2. The Problems (table 1): * Lack of traffic in the stores throughout the winter
The summer and spring month’s people are leaving the house much more frequently than in the summer which poses a problem for Subway because there is no delivery. Also, fitness and exercise are priorities for people but in the winter many individuals are lose the drive for health. * Higher food costs in the winter
In the winter the price of vegetables is higher than in the summer because of the change in temperature. Higher prices pose a problem for Subway because the price of sandwiches does not increase because the cost of vegetables does. Also, because Subway is a franchise, all food must be ordered through Subway which means there is a set price.

3. The Solutions (table 2)
The goal of implementing change: * In short term, draw customers into the store
Keep customers coming back to the store * The focus of specials during the winter months * The menu options during the winter months

4. Executing the Plan * First, offering soup with sandwiches as part of specials will draw customers because people like * In the long term, generate for revenue during the winter months
The changes that need to be made:
First begin to offer soup in the winter. With that, offering coupons or free six inche sandwiches with purchase of a certain amount of gift cards will draw people in for the holidays and then bring the customer back in after for the sandwiches. Although the sandwich is free, the customer may buy soups, drinks, chips or cookies which will boost sales. Employees are important in selling gift cards.…...

...Paul An Actionable Plan A sound security plan is the first step towards a multi-layered defense. To develop a plan, the company must assess its most important assets, identify vulnerabilities as well as the infrastructure and technology most appropriate for mitigating risk, then implement a strategy for putting the plan into action. It has become a critical business communications tool and is also a primary conduit for malicious code. Protecting email against viruses, worms, spam, Trojan horses, phishing attacks and other threats requires a variety of security technologies. These include antivirus and antispyware software, content filtering, and firewalls. Such security technologies must be installed at various levels of the infrastructure-such as the gateway, mail servers and desktop or laptop. This way, threats that may bypass one level are dealt with at another. In addition, layering security helps mitigate the risk of an employee who disables protection on his or her desktop. Tiers of Protection The gateway serves as an entry and exit point to the company network. By installing a security solution such as antivirus and content filtering at this tier, mass-mailer worms are scanned and deleted and spam is moved to quarantines. Outgoing mail is also checked to prevent viruses and inappropriate content from being sent from the company's email addresses. Mail servers should also be equipped with security. These systems receive,......

Plan of Action

...Plan of action to becoming a responsible man Because I am not responsible enough now and I can’t seem to keep my grades up I am being punished, my punishment is to have a five thousand page essay turned into my father by the end of the week on Saturday at 12:00 in the afternoon, as well as taking care of all the chores in the house and/or outside the house and keeping my grades up. Of course that’s what it was before I ran away on Thursday, not to mention I had to come back home on Friday. Since I did this, what I have to do now is turn in a ten thousand word essay to him by Sunday night, and I will still be getting smoked for running away and not having the five thousand word essay done by Saturday afternoon. I do feel as though the whole punishment in the first place was ridiculous when I couldn’t even apologize for what I did, and they wouldn’t even let me show or tell them that I realize what I did on that Friday the weekend me and my sister where supposed to clean the stove and underneath it as well and that I know my grades were not up to par and I was just telling Jason after I got off work that, “ man I’m struggling through school right now so this probably going to be the last time we all hang out at least till I turn this paper in to Mr. Oxenford before spring break”. So when I got that phone call from dad I was scared to even come home because I know that no matter what my word meant nothing to him and still doesn’t. This is because recently I’ve been......

I believe I have many skills and abilities I can bring to the table with these positions. For example in the healthcare analyst position they are looking for many of the skills I already have. The first skill they are requiring is an advanced knowledge and experience and access. I utilize both of these programs on a daily basis to create charts and spreadsheets for my team. They are also requiring a knowledge in statistics and other measures to analyze and report the data.

...PSY 108: Action Plan Step 3: Final Action Plan Student: Gary Claiborne Date: 7/27/14 Literature Review Stress is a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances. Stress is different for each person. What one person feels is a stressful situation, another individual might not find stressful at all. People also handle stress differently. There is a lot of interpretation when it comes to stress. People deal with stress in a variety of ways. Some people handle stress better than others. Through the experiments we read about throughout the class we learned people handle stress differently and are influenced by the behaviors of others when it comes to a stressful situation. Introduction On the Holmes and Rahe self-assessment I scored a 120. This gives me a low chance of becoming ill in the future. On the Holmes and Rahe college student self-assessment, I don’t remember my exact score, but it was less than 150 which indicates mild stress. Nothing really stood out to me the most when I took these assessments. I completed these same assessments in the last course I completed at SNHU. My results did not surprise me. What I found most interesting is that the items that gave me the most points were things that I did not see as stressful events. To me Christmas and vacation are fun and relaxing events. I never really stress about either of those events. I do see where some people might find them stressful though. I seem...

Canada's Economic Action Plan full bore. During this devastating time, the Canadian government developed an Economic Action Plan to counter the effects of the recession. This action plan had first been started in 2006, but was implemented during 2008 to spark the lagging economy. This was done by increasing government spending throughout the country and, specifically, in places in Canada that were suffering the most. There are many facets to the Economic Action Plan, but the overall goal was to get the economy back on track. The main elements to the action plan are jobs, growth and prosperity for Canadians. The first topic in the action plan is Connecting Canadians with Available Jobs: this portion of the action plan makes sure that Canadians find the jobs they need in order to keep working and contributing to the economy. The government of Canada has ensured this will happen through several different methods and some examples are: • Creating the Canada Job Grant • Creating and encouraging opportunities for apprentices • Providing support to groups which are underrepresented in the job market (examples: Aboriginals, newcomers, youth) • Promoting education in high demand fields • Providing scholarships for post-secondary education The second topic discussed in the Economic Action Plan is Helping Manufacturers and Businesses Succeed in the Global Economy. This is an extremely important portion of the plan because Canadian businesses have many challenges to overcome because of the......

Action Plan for Teacher Intervention

...Action Plan for Teacher Intervention Developing an action plan for a student in a particular content area is not a simple task. The teacher must first assess the student to see where his/her weaknesses are and then must decide what the best course of action would be to strengthen those weaknesses. Given the opportunity to observe and assess a kindergarten student, I was able to conclude where his weaknesses were in reading and develop a four week action plan that would help him to get on the right track to achieving his academic goals in reading. The components that needed to be addressed were: phonemic awareness, word study and fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. The action plan will include all learning goals, informative assessments and summative assessments. Action Plan for Teacher Intervention Learning Goals Activities Informal Assessments Summative Assessments Phonemic Awareness -Learn beginning and ending of Phonemes in words -Decode words in context and in isolation by applying common letter-sound correspondences -Combine sounds from letters and common spelling patterns -Use common syllabication patterns to decode words Use objects to have student identify beginning and ending sounds of words Use chanting or claps to identify word sounds of objects Play a signal game with a group and give separate signals for the beginning and ending sounds when they hear it Use index cards to help the student visualize and hear the beginning and ending...

...UNIVERSITY OF LA VERNE La Verne, California ACTION PLAN FOR CHANGE A Paper Submitted in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for MGMT 569: Conflict Management and Organizational Change Student’s Name College of Business and Public Management Department of Management and Leadership May 2014 Action Plan for Change Organizational Description The organization that is the subject of my action plan for change is the xxxx. The xxx has gone through many changes with the creation of a formal human resources division within recent years. Attempts to centralize the recruitment and hiring process in the human resources division with limited staff have been unsuccessful. A formal recruitment and hiring process was implemented in the past two years that helped to centralize the process, but also increased the time to get new employees started in the organization. Believing that creating a formal process will alter informal realities is a myth in planning for change (Cloke & Goldsmith, 2000). Hiring supervisors have reacted to human resources involvement in the process negatively. I have noticed an increase in managers looking toward me to make decisions that they should be able to make themselves. They have also stopped doing some tasks related to the employment process that they should still be completing. A change is needed that will involve human resources......

...The organization that I have chosen to talk in my action plan is the 31ST Seabee Readiness Group (SRG). The 31ST SRG is a command under the US Navy and its mission is as follows; The mission of the 31ST SRG, under the direction of FIRST Naval Construction Division (1NCD), is to train, mobilize and equip all Pacific Fleet Naval Constructions Forces units for the purpose of attaining the highest possible state of readiness and ensure they are equipped and posture for mission success. The action plan that I have created is to implement more training for the Logistic Specialists (LS) attached to the Seabee battalions. Seabees are a known force within the department of the Navy. Their missions consist in deploying into remote sites and establish a camp with all the required assets and establishments for other forces to come in and take over the camp and fulfill their mission or tasks. However, the LS lack the necessary training to set up and operate a post office, and this is becoming a burden to some by not having postal services while in the war zone. This is a major deterrent to the morale of the unit. Issues The LS stationed within the Seabee units are not being provided with the necessary training to fulfill their duties while import or on deployment. After every deployment my office conducts a meeting with the battalion and we discuss the issues, lessons learned from the deployment and what needs to be done to assist them on having a successful......
