  • ASSIGNMENT 2: CHALLENGES IN THE BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

Due Week 9 and worth 330 points-my company Ford Motor

This assignment you must submit a four to six (4–6) page paper that details what you would say in such a presentation following the same prompts as the video assignment below.

For the second part of the assignment, you will create a presentation using PowerPoint (or other equivalent software) summarizing the important changes and explanations regarding the code of conduct that you communicated in your video/paper presentation to email to the suppliers after the meeting for future reference. The specific points to cover are listed below.

 

You must submit both parts of the assignment to receive full credit.

 

Part 1:  Paper

Specific Library Resources to help you get started

The Strayer University Library is accessible at research.strayer.edu.

A general introduction to the Strayer Library is available in your course shell on the left-hand menu under Research-Library.

  • Introductory Search – Use the home page’s search box to keyword search many, but not all, databases.
  • Targeted Search – Scroll to the bottom of the page for an A to Z listing of all databases. Float over each link to see a description of the database and click to load that particular database’s custom search page. Custom search pages include both basic and advanced search options.

These databases are only partially searchable through the general search bar. You will have to search them individually to find resources for your paper.

  • Nexis Uni – This contains legal information and would be useful to search for court cases in which your company has been involved.
  • Video Explaining Nexis Uni
  • Mergent Online – This has company info on both public and private companies. Fortune 500 can be public or private. Mergent is known for financial and accounting info, but also has qualitative information too. They offer news feeds, country reports on business environments, industry-wide reporting, company reports, and Annual Reports—the middle 3 are unique to this database. Starting with looking at a company’s annual report would be very useful for this assignment. Industry reports would also be useful to see if your company is involved in any industry-wide initiatives or is notable in its industry in any way (could be good or bad.)
  • Instructional Videos on each of the databases:

American City Business Journals – This is probably the most fun way to read business news by metro area. They have over 35 journals based around US cities. Look up the metro area your company is associated with, go to ACBJ, then choose the applicable city, and search for news articles.

Research Starters are like the academic version of Wikipedia. Search on a topic to get an overview with links to other information within that topic. It will help you get ideas for keywords for your own searches and what you need to know in order to successfully write your paper.

Note – This is an exception example. Research Starter articles do appear in a feature box above the results list when using the general search box on research.strayer.edu.

Don’t stress over writing papers! Watch this video on writing papers and essays. Topics include how to start your research, how to organize your research, how to draft your paper, and how to revise it.

Conflicts are part of interpersonal communication. You will not be in lock-step agreement with a person all of the time. The best approach to handling conflicts is head-on. Conflicts can be healthy and hold positive possibilities.

Communication M2 Conflict and Communication

Conflicts are part of interpersonal communication. You will not be in lock-step agreement with a person all of the time. The best approach to handling conflicts is head-on. Conflicts can be healthy and hold positive possibilities.

First, let’s examine the concept. Conflicts are personal. Make no mistake about it. That is why some of the most damaging conflicts happen between people who are close (e.g., family, friends, and spouses). When conflicts go undetected, interaction can become poisonous, rotting away necessary elements like fairness, empathy, trust, and honesty. Combatants become vengeful and judgmental, focusing only on winning the conflict. In the worst cases, people will continue a conflict to such lengths that both sides remain miserable indefinitely.

Disagreements often become conflicts under these circumstances:
Two people are interdependent; they each need something from the other.
Both parties blame the other or find fault with them for causing the problem.
One or more of the parties is angry or emotionally upset.
The parties’ behaviors are affecting their relationship with each other and/or their relationships with others.
Instructions

You have been working on a group project with several other students. The project has generally been going well, but one person on the project has not been pulling his or her weight, relying on everyone else in the group to complete the project. The group has discussed this problem, and you have elected as the person to communicate with the student who has not been helping on the project. Using Microsoft Word or a similar program, draft an email to your fellow student discussing the issue and what you think can or should be done to resolve it. You will want to communicate carefully, being clear on the problem as you see it without being aggressive or angry. Proper language and tone will be extremely important. On the same document, in 2-3 paragraphs, discuss how you came to the solution for this issue. In this discussion, include what would constitute a good resolution for the problem in your opinion and what actions (or non-action) by the offending student would cause you to contact the instructor for additional help in resolving the problem.

Rubric

Email is clear and direct, and discusses the problem with significant detail.

Email is carefully moderated in tone and discusses the problem calmly and clearly.

Discussion is clear in bringing in more authority and also offers a rationale for how and why more authority may be needed to resolve the issue.

Email and response are professional throughout. Tone, language, spelling, syntax and other aspects of communication are accurate and effective.

Living Case Topic Assignment The first step in developing your Living Case paper is the identification of a problem in a well known or area within your organization you think may be the result of either an effective or less than effective human resource practice.

Part 1
Living Case Topic Assignment
The first step in developing your Living Case paper is the identification of a problem in a well known or area within your organization you think may be the result of either an effective or less than effective human resource practice.
Description of the issue or problem: Please identify and brief describe the organization, the human resources management issue or problem being studied and why the problem was selected.
You must receive an approval of your topic before proceeding on your case.
Part 2
Annotated Bibliography Assignment Guidelines
A major component of your Living Case Study is the process of reviewing the literature on your selected
topic or subject.
In this assignment the student will:
1. Review the current literature on the topic of the case study.
2. Create an annotated bibliography with a minimum of five (5) credible, scholarly journals or
sources.
3. Articles from popular magazines like Inc., Business Week, Fortune, Entrepreneur, Fast Company,
Harvard Business Review, Times, Newsweek, and similar magazines ARE NOT scholarly journals
and will not be counted toward your minimum bibliographies.
Tips
What is an abstract? An abstract is usually written by the author and is intended to help the reader
decide is the publication is relevant to the person’s research topic. An abstract precede the actual
journal article.
What is an annotation? Is written by a person researching a given subject area or topic. An annotation
describes the article and background of the author but it also contains a critique of the article, its
strengths and weaknesses. An annotation is a description and evaluation of a journal article written by a
third party.
Part 3
The case study should be 10-12 pages in length (not including title, reference, and appendixes pages),
incorporating information from the literature and personal observations and experiences. Study reports
should consider
a. Description of the issue or problem. This section includes a brief description of the organization,
the human resources management issue or problem being studied and why the problem was
selected.
b. Data to support your perspective on the problem. Data come from appropriate sources, e.g.,
observation, interviews, documents.
c. Analysis of the situation in terms of the relevant key topic. In other words, relate the data you
gathered to the topic being studied.
d. Generate recommendations to improve/maintain the situation. What actions can and/or should
be taken to resolve the problem. If the issue is not a problem, should there be change or should
steps be taken to maintain the situation as it is?
e. Propose an implementation and action plan. Be as specific as you can, including what you expect
the outcome to be.
These five considerations may be used as section headings to assure that the case is systematically
described and analyzed. The amount of “space” devoted to each of these five areas will differ from
report to report.
The specifics of this assignment include the components, what they should include, due dates, and
characteristics of the final product:
1. Identify an area of your organization that you think may be the result of either an effective or
less than effective human resource practice. Upload this topic to me by the end of Week 2.
2. Conduct a preliminary literature review and produce an annotated bibliography with a minimum
of five credible, scholarly sources. This is due at the end of Week 4
3. Gather research on your topic. This is how you reach the goal of item “b” above. Consider
gathering documents (e.g. policy and procedures) and interviewing those who administer
and/or are impacted by the practice.
4. The final paper will include all five study report components listed above.
a. Papers must reflect college level writing (e.g. clear sentence construction, correct
spelling and grammar).
b. A thorough analysis of the issues involved in your topic begins with the current
situation, why it is important to understand both practice and context, the outcomes of
this practice, and your specific recommendations regarding the continuation or change
of this practice.
c. All sources must be cited in the text of the paper according to APA formatting
guidelines.
d. It will also include a formal bibliography of all sources cited in the text of your report.
