BUSI 2101 CONSULTANT ASSIGNMENT

Objective

Demonstrate your knowledge of Organizational Behaviour concepts, and practice analytical skills you will be able to apply to real contexts you find yourself in.

FORMAT

  • Your proposal will be 1500 words in length, Single Spaced, with 1” margins.
  • The paper should be organized into three sections: Background, Analysis, and Recommendations. The background section should be no more than 200 words. The Analysis and Recommendations sections should be about equal in length, at approximately 650 words each.
  • If you choose one of the organizations from the list provided (see instructions below), you will need to provide references for the information contained in your analysis section. The references should be balanced: about half of your references should be from academic sources, and half from industry/media sources. (See “Research Help” below). The number of sources you use will depend on the points you are trying to support in your argument. To write in a clear and convincing fashion you must support each of your points with quality sources. Finally, you should use specific (not general) examples to demonstrate your ability to apply your learning to real life situations.
  • Be sure to use APA format for references. Your paper should have a clear structure (you may use headings) and be error free. Papers outside this guideline may suffer a penalty. As portions of this assignment are reflective in nature, there will be opportunities to use the first-person writing style to enhance the impact of the paper.
