Paper Instructions Paper 1 Due: Monday 1/11 11:59 pm PST Paper 2 Due: Tuesday 1/19 11:59 pm PST Final Paper Due: Friday 1/22 11:59 pm PST I. Goal of the Papers The goal of these papers is to for you to take everything you’ve learned in this course and apply it to a real-life business scenario. All papers will cover the same business scenario. The first two will address different topics addressed in the textbook. The content of the final paper will cover all of the content in the first two plus the two bonus topics. This give you a chance to perfect the first two papers and add your own personal touch. Here are the general instructions: • For Papers 1 and 2, aim for 1000-1500 words. 1500 words is the maximum. • For the Final Paper, aim for 2500-3000 words. 3000 words is the maximum. o Revise in light of any comments you received on the first two papers and highlight those changes. • Submit your paper on Canvas under Assignments. • Please anonymize your project by removing your name from the file and the file name! (When possible, I try to grade anonymously to try to mitigate any implicit biases I may have.) II. Picking the Business Scenario You are free to pick almost any business scenario that interests you. It can be based on personal experiences, be a fictional scenario (perhaps borrowed from a book or movie), or pertain to a current event. Just make sure that you provide enough basic detail so that someone not familiar with the situation understands what’s going on. Keep in mind when you pick your case, that you need to pick a case with enough complexity to fill out the required content. So, check out all of the content points for all three papers before picking your topic. Lastly, there are some exceptions to the topics that you can pick. Here are the exceptions: • You may not pick one of the case studies in the book (or any previous edition of the book). • You may not pick one of the case studies from discussion. III. Scoring Points are allotted for each content letter. They are scored as follow: o Full points: Followed instructions and demonstrated understanding of the scenario and relevant ethical considerations o Partial points: Did not follow instructions or did not demonstrate understanding o 0 points: Did not address a, b, etc. IV. Pro tip! Writing can be hard! If you encounter any difficulty, don’t hesitate to send me an email and we’ll work on your paper together. Paper 1 Content Include all of the following content in your paper. Points and length suggestions are included. 15 total points are possible. a. Question and Position (2 pts) • Clearly state the question that you are investigating.
