2: Comparative Company Analysis
: Comparative Company Analysis, comparing Tenet Healthcare Corporation to Universal Health Systems (UHS) based on financial issues they are having. articles (no wikipedia) on Universal Health Systems (UHS) experiencing the same type of problems I outlined in my research question-which is (Given today’s continuous expansion of America’s Healthcare industry, is Tenet Healthcare Corporation capable of achieving financial consistencies and is the company able to beat their ethical fault to maintain patient care and employee satisfaction?) and hypothesis (Tenet healthcare is facing huge financial disparity due to poor ethical behavior and poor decision making).
1. Discuss Universal Health Systems problem they are facing financially. 2. How the problem relates to the research I found (Research I found was our hypothesis which stays-Tenet healthcare is facing huge financial disparity due to poor ethical behavior and poor decision making)- wrote on Tenet healthcare to help with this) 3. The solution that was implemented in the article about Universal Health System. (Important- Your NOT going to provided recommendations- they should’ve implemented a solution in the UHS article you found) 4.The viability of applying that solution to Tenet Healthcare Corporation. (Will that solution work for Tenet, why or why not?) Attached will be an example of a paper, so you kind of know how to write and format the paper. Also, just for your information, this is an ongoing paper, which is about Tenet Healthcare and our Hypothesis is Tenet healthcare is facing huge financial disparity due to poor ethical behavior and poor decision making.
3 SOFT POWER,THE MEANS TO SUCCESS IN WORLD POLITICS by Joseph S. Nye, Jr. (New York, NY: Public Affairs, 2004)
A Book Review is a written piece meant to orient potential readers to decide on whether or not to read a published work. It is not a report nor a summary of the contents of the book, but rather a critical analysis in which the reviewer judges the work, both in style and contents. After going through the review, a reader should be able to know whether the book is interesting or not, or if it makes a valuable contribution to the existing wealth of knowledge in its specific area.
The first, obvious, step to make a good review is reading the book. You must actively and critically engage the book, jotting down notes with your observations or impressions as you read. Identify the thesis (or theses, if the book has more than one) the author presents, how sound his arguments are, and the rational path he follows to support it. Highlight quotable paragraphs you might want to use in the review.
It may seem obvious, but do not forget to start by providing information on the book’s title and author. As for the latter, it may be interesting to read something about the author’s biography to understand where he comes from -intellectually speaking-, as well as his biases, scientific rigor, reputation among scholars or in his field, etc. Let the reader know a little bit of this upfront.
A short reference on the formal organization of the book may be in order. Here you may want to answer questions like: is the thesis clearly stated at the beginning of the book? Is the work logically structured, smoothly leading the reader toward the conclusions? Is the style good and appropriate for the expected readers? Keep this section short.
The central part of the review must be devoted to the critical analysis of the book. Inform the readers on the main thesis is. Then, discuss the arguments and the supporting evidence. Make an assessment on their validity, and on how solid they are. Criticize them. If you disagree, present your reasons and counterarguments. Do it always politely and positively. Do not be unnecessarily offensive or rude.
Wrap up the paper with your conclusions. Here you may present your opinion on whether engaging the book is a worthy endeavor.
Writing a short book review like this may be somewhat challenging. Limit it to the allocated space. Keep it concise. Edit the text; look up for typos; and review the style.
