This assignment is intended to allow students to apply some of the theories and perspectives learned in class in analyzing an actual company. This will give students some practical experience in applying OB concepts and solutions to their real-life situations.
Your paper should be 4-6 pages of content (excluding the cover page or the references) and should be written in APA format (APA6 or APA7). It should focus on either a current or past employer of yours, or some other company with which you have significant familiarity. What is needed is some knowledge of the inner workings of the company–its struggles, its strengths, its climate, and so forth. When writing, keep direct quotes to 10% or less than total content. Avoid block quotes (i.e., direct quotes of 40 or more words). Turn-it-in software will evaluate content for plagiarism and academic misconduct
