Deborah,
 In Chapter 9 of The CFO Guidebook, we are introduced to the tools of capital budgeting. Making specific reference to what you read in that chapter, respond to the following questions:
Which metrics and methodologies are the most useful when evaluating a capital investment? Why?
Our weekly 6 Lecture Notes and The CFO Guidebook talks about the internal Rate of Return as a calculation to determine whether the investment is worthwhile throughout the capital investment. It uses a formula that must be calculated through trials and errors.
Net Present Value: (NPV). It uses the same purpose as internal returns, Its present value tp represents the difference between the current value of money.
Profitability Index: This is a capital budgeting tool and identifies the relationship between cost, and benefits that could produce the venture successfully. When the ratio increases beyond 1.0 investment becomes more desirable to companies.

How can finance leaders be more effective partners to managers and business leaders in developing capital budgets that align with the risk tolerance and mission of the organization?
This process touches upon every aspect of an organization. The capital budgeting process provides a means to bring a strategic focus to everything you do. Be honest about capital budgeting, show others in the organization, get their point of view, and ask for help regarding any missing information, that needs to be disaggregated. ( 1. CFO).
One of the first things in a communications strategy is to b a strong leader with a unique ability to effectively coordinate, and connect financial reporting governance, and communications. (https://nff.org/blog/importance-financial-leadership).
What can be done to make sure everyone understands the connection between the strategy and the capital budget?
There are some steps that you can take to connect the strategy and the capital budgets?
You have to understand the purposes of strategic planning and budgeting. Review the project, build a decision-making framework for all that is involved, and talk to the group about setting priorities in the workplace.

 In Chapter 9 of The CFO Guidebook, we are introduced to the tools of capital budgeting. Making specific reference to what you read in that chapter, respond to the following questions:
Which metrics and methodologies are the most useful when evaluating a capital investment? Why?
The metrics and methodologies most useful when evaluating a capital investment are net present value analysis and the payback method.  Net present value analysis is the traditional approach used and can be used to judge any proposal from anywhere.  NPV accounts for the decrease in the value of the dollar. The payback method is the simplest way to budget for a new asset because it decides how it will take a company to pay it off and is not based on assumptions like NPV (1).
How can finance leaders be more effective partners to managers and business leaders in developing capital budgets that align with the risk tolerance and mission of the organization?
Finance leaders can be more effective partners to managers and business leaders in developing capital budgets that align with the risk tolerance and mission of the organization by taking the necessary steps to ensure any proposals requested by the management team are reviewed properly reviewed to determine their worthiness of the investment. There also needs to be a method in place that ranks the priority of proposals to ensure the amount does not exceed the funds that are actually available by applying NPV (1).
What can be done to make sure everyone understands the connection between the strategy and the capital budget?
To make sure everyone understands the connection between the strategy and the capital budget, key objectives have to be defined, strategies and impact have to be identified, assumptions must be documented, tactics and high-level operational budgets must be developed, risks must be assessed and mitigated, and the plan checked for completeness and finalization (2).

What questions do you have to move you forward? 

Developing research proposals

Topic is The effects of Poverty in early childhood development.

To prepare for writing the research proposal, identify a topic of personal and professional interest that is relevant to the early childhood field. Conduct an initial review of the literature and narrow your topic by discussing it with Faculty, colleagues, or fellow students. (The topic of interest is The effects of Poverty in early childhood development). 
The 10- to 15-page research proposal must include all of the following components, in order:
1.  Title Page (1 page)
2.  Abstract (1 page)
3.  150- to 200-word summary of the proposal
4.  Introduction (2–3 pages)
The introduction provides the reader with an overview of the literature to the topic and justifies the need for the research study. The introduction is typically written after completing the literature review. Your introduction should include:
§  Your research question and an explanation of the problem your question is designed to explore
§  A rationale for importance of this topic, including an explanation of the gap in the research literature that your topic will explore
5.  Literature Review (3–5 pages)
The main purpose of a literature review is to synthesize current research to your topic. In addition, the literature review is where you consider the implications of research that has already been published on your research question.
The literature review should include an:
§  Analysis of the context in which the problem is situated and current thinking about solutions, including the theoretical perspectives presented in the literature and a discussion of the research findings
§  Explanation of the implications of the research to your research question
Note: Your literature review must include a minimum of five highly relevant and credible resources.
6.  Methodology and Data Collection (2–3pages).
Name the research design you will use (i.e., quantitative design, qualitative design, or mixed method design), and the reasons for your choice. If your study is quantitative or mixed methods, define the independent and dependent variables.
§  Describe the study participant(s) and your sampling process. Discuss any sampling issues/challenges you might encounter.
§  Describe the data collection method(s) you will use—and what influenced your choice.
§  Describe any major ethical issue(s) you perceive for your study— and ways you will address ethics.
§  Describe the benefits, limitations, and challenges you perceive in your study.
7.  References (1-2 pages)
8.  Appendices (Optional; not included in page count)
Resources can be from anywhere, as long as it’s in APA format. 

Discussions

 PART A
Have you ever wondered why it seems all religions have the same basic ideas? In this week’s readings, the textbook mentions the Axial Age when all the major modern philosophies and religious ideas developed. The Golden Rule, in various manifestations, emerged during this time.
With this in mind, consider the scholarly debate around whether Zoroastrianism influenced the Western religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam as described in the textbook. Using facts from these sources, do you think Zoroastrianism was a major influence on the Western religions and why or why not?
Be sure to respond to at least one of your classmates’ posts. Responses should be substantive, provide additional context, and provide evidence (cite source) to support ideas. Dialogue should be meaningful, constructive, and respectful.
PART B 
Watch the Strayer Success Story: Tawanda Jones. Tawanda was a Strayer student, just like you, who found a way to achieve her goals.
In one paragraph, explain how you would define grit and how grit helped Tawanda reach her goals.
In one paragraph, explain how you build grit in yourself and/or your children.
Each paragraph should have 5–7 sentences and be grammatically correct.
Respond to at least one other person in the class by Sunday, writing at least three sentences.

 In the discussion, respond to the following. Be sure to respond to all parts of this question in order to earn full credit.
Identify two specific communication strategies you believe are most effective for use between health care organizations and their patients. Provide rationale to support your choice of strategies.
