Overly general research areas for the project are listed below. These areas reflect broad subjects discussed in the course textbook. Specifically, students should research an exceedingly narrow topic within the list, a topic focused enough to be covered adequately in such a short paper. The essay should describe the impacts of, and ramifications for, your narrow topic only where organizational behavior and development is concerned. The instructor will be looking for:
*a narrow, carefully crafted thesis statement, and
*a highly descriptive, detailed essay title that mirrors the thesis statement.
As the thesis drives a paper, many points will be deducted if a student fails to follow these instructions.
Work motivation, stress, and/or well-being Leadership
Decision-making by individuals, groups, and teams
Conflict, negotiation, power, and politics
Organizational structure, change, and development
