Social Influences Presentation

Influences from people’s social environments have an effect on their beliefs and behaviors, but they may not understand that influence. This assignment asks you to examine different social influences and the effects they may have on offender behavior.

Imagine your team has been asked to create a training on the role of social influences in offender rehabilitation for new support services staff. The intent of this training is to provide a base knowledge of this information so the new support services staff can structure their program delivery with these concepts in mind.

Develop examples of conformity, obedience, group membership, group conflict, and group decision making occurring in a group session for support services to help with offender rehabilitation.

Create a 10- to 12-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation to utilize in the training. Include the following:

  • Describe the concepts of conformity, obedience, group membership, group conflict, and group decision making.
  • Describe examples of these concepts occurring during support services.
  • Explain how the group influenced individual decision making in your examples.
  • Describe how social relationships developed or changed because of the group interactions in your examples
  • Explain how to navigate address these situations when they may occur.

Include a minimum of three sources.

Include detailed speaker notes for each slide. Do NOT repeat slide information in speaker notes, different with citations.

Format any citations in your presentation according to APA guidelines.

Submit your presentation to the Assignment Files tab.

Chapter 9 – Systems Development and Project Management

Denver International Airport

One good way to learn how to develop successful systems is to review past failures. One of the most infamous system failures is Denver International Airport’s (DIA) baggage system. When the automatic baggage system design for DIA was introduced, it was hailed as the savior of modern airport design. The design relied on a network of 300 computers to route bags and 4,000 card to carry luggage across 21 miles of track. Laser scanners were to read bar-coded luggage tags, while advanced scanners tracked the movement of toboggan-like baggage carts.

When DIA finally opened its doors for reporters to witness its revolutionary baggage handling system, the scene was rather unpleasant. Bags were chewed up, lost, and misrouted in what has since become a legendary systems nightmare.

One of the biggest mistakes made in the baggage handling system fiasco was that not enough time was allowed to properly develop the system. In the beginning of the project, DIA assumed it was the responsibility of individual airlines to find their own way of moving the baggage from the plane to the baggage claim area. The automated baggage system was not involved in the initial planning of the DIA project. By the time the DIA developers decided to create an integrated baggage system, the time frame for designing and implementing such a complex and huge system was not possible.

Another common mistake that occurred during the project was that the airlines kept changing their business requirements. This caused numerous issues, including the implementation of power supplies that were not properly updated for the revised system design, which caused overloaded motors and mechanical failures. Besides the power supply design problem, the optical sensors did not read bar codes correctly, causing issues with baggage routing.

Finally, BAE, the company that designed and implemented the automated baggage system for DIA, had never created a baggage system of this size before. BAE had created a similar system in an airport in Munich, Germany, where the scope was much smaller. Essentially, the baggage system has an inadequate IT infrastructure because it was designed for a much smaller system.

DIA simply could not open without a functional baggage system so the city had no choice but to delay the opening date for more than 16 months, costing taxpayers roughly $1 million per day, which totaled around $500 million.

QUESTIONS

  1. One problem with DIA’s baggage system was inadequate testing. Why is testing important to a project’s success? Why do so many projects decide to skip testing?
  2. How could more time spent in the analysis and design phase have saved Colorado taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars?
  3. Why couldn’t BAE take existing IT infrastructure and simply increase its scale and expect it to work?

LOOKUP WORKSHEET:

  1. GRADES: In cell C4, use a nested IF function to determine the final grade for the first student based on the grading scheme presented in E5:F9. Write the formula so it can be copied to all students.
  2. COPY COSTS: In cell B17, use a LOOKUP function to determine the total costs of making copies based on the number of copies in A17 and the pricing table in E17:F22. Copy this formula down column B to cell B20.
  3. Format the worksheet for a professional appearance; then format page for printing – add name and worksheet name to the footer, fit to 1 page.

SALES MTG WORKSHEET:

  1. Write a formula in cell E3 that can be copied down the column to determine (TRUE or FALSE) if this item is within budget (an item is within budget if the actual amount is less than the budgeted amount).
