OVERVIEW: Large RFP decisions impact across the organization and therefore warrant board attention. The RFP process can be an early indicator of supply chain risk. Boards should identify their goals for the RFP process and determine how the board should be involved. In order to fully participate in the RFP process at the board level, board members should have an understanding of best practices for conducting a successful RFP process.

Nothing reinforces instruction better than actual case studies. This is especially true of interventional radiology coding, which comes with some of the most complicated rules in all of medicine. The Interventional Radiology Case Studies contain documentation from actual IR procedures, so you can better understand how to correctly assign both CPT® and ICD-9 codes.

Making credit decisions requires both quantitative and qualitative analysis. A diligent credit analysis coupled with strong credit policies will typically reduce a financial company's credit risk. Quantitative analysis includes financial statement analysis (FSA). Banks and other financial institutions use FSA techniques frequently in performing their credit decisions. FSA is used to determine the financial state of a company and how it compares to its peers. It consists of techniques that include financial ratios and cash flow analysis. Key financial ratios are used to assess the company's profitability, ability to pay back interest and debt, and the levels of leverage that the company deploys. In the context of credit, the cash flow analysis provides information on whether the company can generate enough funds to increase their debt load. This course gives a brief overview of the structure of a company's financial statements, including the income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow statement. The course introduces financial statement analysis and some of its components, such as ratio analysis and cash flow analysis. Ratio analysis includes financial ratios that are indicative of the company's liquidity, solvency, profitability, and efficiency, and how these ratios are analyzed both historically and also compared to the company's peers. The course also covers two different methods of calculating the company's free cash flows, an important indicator determining whether the company can add to its debt load.

Getting to the source of why something has gone wrong in a system or process is critical to identifying the changes necessary for resolving the problem. During the Analyze phase of a Six Sigma project, a Black Belt practitioner utilizes a variety of statistical and nonstatistical tools and methods for analyzing systems and processes to identify variation and defects, reduce costs, eliminate waste, and reduce cycle time. While many of the tools used in the Analyze phase are statistical and quantitative in nature, there are many useful nonstatistical methods. Nonstatistical methods help in the analysis by including qualitative considerations in identifying potential problems, their root causes, and their impacts. They help prioritize these causes and generate initial ideas for resolving problems when a project enters the Improve phase. This course covers the use of various nonstatistical analysis methods including failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA), gap analysis, scenario planning, root cause analysis, the 5 Whys, fault tree analysis (FTA), and waste analysis. This course is aligned with the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam and is designed to assist learners as part of their exam preparation. It builds on foundational knowledge that is taught in SkillSoft's ASQ-aligned Green Belt curriculum.

Every organization in every industry has to get work done by using limited resources; this is especially so in the field of healthcare. Healthcare facility administrators who have to achieve results using fewer resources should understand the important role that staff training, productivity, job satisfaction, and motivation plays in getting the job done. A workforce that is engaged is also satisfied. This in turn increases productivity for the facility. This course discusses the link between employee engagement and satisfaction, along with how to build an engaged, motivated workforce.

Six Sigma is a data-driven improvement strategy that views all activities within an organization as processes. Process inputs can be controlled and adjusted to effect significant improvements in process outputs. Six Sigma uses a rigorous and systematic methodology known as DMAIC (define, measure, analyze, improve, and control) and a number of qualitative and quantitative tools. Its goal is to drive process, product, and service improvements for reducing variation and defects. Lean is also an improvement methodology, but with a different focus. It aims to enhance process flow, reduce cycle time, and eliminate waste. Though Lean and Six Sigma originated in different places and under different circumstances, they are now largely seen as complementary methodologies. Organizations across various industries are striving to become faster and more responsive to customers, achieve near-perfect quality, and operate using world-class cost structures. You need both Lean and Six Sigma to achieve these goals. This course introduces Six Sigma and Lean methodologies and looks at the relationship between them. It also explores relationships among business systems and processes using some practical examples of Lean Six Sigma applications in both manufacturing and service industries. This course is aligned with the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam and is designed to assist learners as part of their exam preparation. It builds on foundational knowledge that is taught in SkillSoft's ASQ-aligned Green Belt curriculum.

Futures contracts have long been used by the agriculture industry to eliminate the price risks associated with farming produce. This elimination of price risks, known as hedging, has become a common practice in today's markets. Trading in futures has moved beyond its agricultural origins and is now a modus operandi for numerous trading parties whose incentives are to either decrease the risk factor by hedging, or to make a profit through speculation. Futures contracts form a significant trading sector in the global financial system. They now trade on various commodities, including energy, single stocks and stock indices, interest rates and currencies, and some more exotic benchmarks such as the climate. This course examines the fundamentals of futures contracts, including their pricing and quotation, and how they are used by hedgers as a protection against adverse price risks and by speculators as a means to increase profit through calculated risk. The course looks at commodity, equity, and currency futures.
