Assignment: Case Analysis: John Smith

Obtaining informed consent for services from clients is required of human services providers; however, it is not always an easy task. Clients typically grant consent by signing documents presented by the agency or the provider that, at minimum, explain the services that will be provided, the client rights, and information on the steps to rescind the consent.

In situations where minors or individuals under some form of guardianship are the clients, it is necessary to obtain consent from the legal guardian or authority. However, there are times when obtaining informed consent is not as simple as asking for a signature from the client or guardian. These situations require more thought by the human services providers with emphasis on balancing the client’s right to consent with other factors that might influence treatment outcomes or decisions.

In this assignment, you will review a case that illustrates the various facets of informed consent.

The Case:

Smith is a thirty-eight-year-old African American male referred for counseling by his mother to address recent incidents of aggression. Smith resides with his mother because he is not able to live on his own. Smith is unable to hold on to a job and has difficulty establishing and maintaining relationships with others. He is open to counseling but thinks his mother is overreacting to his anger outbursts because she is old and does not understand him. Recently, there have been notable conflicts between them due to Smith’s aggressive behaviors that were directed toward his mother.

Tasks:

Analyze the case and in a 2- to 3-page paper, address the following:

What steps would you, as the counselor, take for obtaining informed consent from Smith?

Would you, as the counselor, include his mother in the counseling sessions, if you believe it would help with Smith’s aggression problem? Why or why not?

f) The editors of the Daily Register have accused our company of being one of the city’s worst water polluters. But come to think about it, the Daily Register has been responsible for much more pollution than any other business enterprise in the area.

After you have reviewed the opportunities, select the best fitting opportunity for the organisation and develop marketing strategies, approaches and activities to take advantage of the opportunity which in this case, provide a SWOT analysis. This assessment comprises of 3 tasks which looks at:

– Task 1 – Devise marketing strategies
– Task 2 – Plan marketing tactics
– Task 3 – Prepare and present a marketing plan

You must provide:
– a report containing documents that support all of the instructions outlined in the procedure above. Your report should include Table of Contents, Introduction of overall assessment, Description (all parts from procedure steps 1-6), Conclusion (Summary of assessment).
Your assessor will be looking for whether you have:

– prepared a report outlining your marketing strategies to best take advantage of the identified market opportunities
– organised your report that suggested in the procedure.

Case study

Houzit is a chain of homewares stores in Brisbane that specialise in bathroom fittings, bedroom fittings, mirrors and decorative items. They currently have 15 stores spread across the greater Brisbane area, with all stores being managed and coordinated from their head office in Milton.
You have recently been appointed as the marketing manager and must now review the organisation and devise marketing strategies that will move Houzit towards its strategic goals.
The CEO has also asked you to consider some marketing opportunities that may assist Houzit in reaching its goals, and provide him with brief summary evaluating two alternatives, including the benefits and risks associated with each option, and making a recommendation for the opportunity most likely to produce results.
You have gleaned the following information about Houzit:
– Houzit is close to entering its fifth year of operation; offering a wide range of home-ware items on easy-to-manage payment terms and supplies a three year guarantee on every item sold.
– The typical target customers have the following characteristics:
? sophisticated people who are house proud
? shoppers who will drive to an easy-to-access store
? customers who require payment plans to spread their commitment over an extended period
? renovators and new home builders
? 20-50 year olds.
– Houzit recognises the following trends and focuses its efforts on them.
? Quality – Preference for high quality items is increasing as customers are learning to appreciate differences in quality.
? Unique items – Customers want homewares that stand out from mass-produced, low quality items.
? Selection – People are demanding a larger selection of choices, they are no longer accepting a limited selection of homewares.
– The typical Houzit store has the following characteristics:
? Location – A commercial, suburban neighbourhood, or urban retail district.
? Design – Bright and functional.
? Size – 1,000-1,500 m2.
? Employees – 15-20 full time, plus several casuals
? Types of transactions – 60% cash, 40% on long-term repayment plan.
– Sales break-ups between the existing Brisbane stores reveal:
? 30% bathroom fittings
? 35% bedroom furnishings
? 20% mirrors and decorative items
? 15% lighting fixtures (recent addition).

A new customer’s first purchase is generally of mirrors and decorative items and this gives us the opportunity to sign them up to our loyalty program.

In a brief discussion with the CEO, you asked about the changes taking place in legislation that could impact on Houzit’s operation. The CEO explained:

‘There is a big push by governments on the issue of sustainability. This focuses mostly on environmental issues of waste management and energy conservation. Houzit stores have been deliberately designed in the past to be bright and comfortable places to shop. This means a significant cost in electricity usage to run the lights and the air-conditioners. With the new regulations we are going to have to find ways to still provide customers with what they want without the high electricity usage.’

SWOT Analysis
Strengths:
– Excellent staff who are highly skilled and knowledgeable about homewares.
– Great retail space that is bright, functional and efficient for a commercial urban district.
– High customer loyalty among repeat customers.
– Assortment of offerings that exceed competitors’ offerings in quality, range and accessibility.
Weaknesses:
– A limited marketing budget to develop brand awareness due to the lack of critical mass and store cover.
– The struggle to continually fund the growing long-term repayment plans taken out by our customers.
Opportunities:
– A growing market in a high growth area with a significant percentage of the target market still not aware of Houzit’s offer.
– Increasing sales opportunities outside of our target area – greater Brisbane.
Threats:
– Competition from local independent retailers can drive down prices, as owner operators have lover overhead costs than our staff-run stores.
– Competition from national chains moving into the Brisbane market.
– A slump in the economy reducing customer’s disposable income spent on homewares.
