Communication in Organizations

Case Study Assignment:

Your task is to develop a case study about some aspect of organizational life, this might be a problem or some change issue. You should probably focus on an issue or a problem or something about change in the organization, but you can focus more broadly than that.

NOTEDo NOT include any proprietary or confidential information or names of people or the organization if it could be harmful to you, others or the organization. Do let me know if it is a fictitious organization or a Real organization with the names changed to protect the organization.

It is very important that you follow the format very carefully. I will take points off for failing to follow the directions. Do each section separately and turn it in separately.

The parts are:

Part 1A: Describe the Organization (5%). Around a page in length, certainly not much more.

Part 1B: Describe the Situation you will analyze in the case study (5%). Around a page in length, certainly not much more.

Part 2: Situational Analysis (30%). Use the Matrix, and then write a half a page to a page on each of the 2 to 4 areas you will focus on.

Part 3: Recommendation (10%). A one or two pages at most.

NOTE: all page descriptions are approximate and are 12pt font double spaced

OK!!! LET’S CONTINUE PART 3!

Part 3: Recommendation

Describe what you think should be done, why, the end results, and a brief description of first steps and your plan.

Format (you must follow) for Part 3:

· WHAT SHOULD BE DONE: 1-2 pages

· WHY: 1-2 pages

· END RESULTS: less than a page:

· FIRST STEPS & THE PLAN: less than a page, in outline form

NOTE: I do not care about numbers and roman numerals in the outline; I would consider how I have described this assignment for you an outline form.

NOTE: all of Part 3 is in one document that you upload per the instructions.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Remember to work hard, have fun and be brilliant.

ETHICS

In 500 words or more (no less), research the 6 fundamental human rights: The Right to Life, the Right to the Freedom from Harm, the Right to Free Thought, the Right to Free Movement, the Right to Freedom from Slavery, and the Right to Equality of Opportunity. You may use examples, but you will still need to include a full scholarly definition of each, with commentary. You may use any scholarly source other than a dictionary, to include online video lectures. You may use Wikipedia as a starting point, but be aware that Wikipedia is not a scholarly source and therefore can never be quoted in your paper. You will need to include in-text citations in your essay (last name, date, pg#) along with an APA formatted References page.

Ethical Issues

EDUCATION

  • Under what circumstances, if any, is it morally justifiable for grade school or high school teachers to hit students?

MEDIA AND THE ARTS

  • For a number of years, it has been widely recognized that TV has the potential to be the greatest educational device in history. (This includes not just what is presently considered educational TV but commercial TV as well.) Does the TV industry have any moral obligation to realize that potential? If so, explain the source of that obligation and the kinds of changes in present programming that would be necessary to honor it.

SEX

  • What are the ethical considerations that arise in cases where people undergo sex-change operations? Are there any situations in which it would not be ethically justifiable to have such an operation?

GOVERNMENT

  • Many countries have outlawed the death penalty. The United States, as a country, has not, although many people believe it should. Evaluate the morality of the death penalty.

LAW

  • Often the penalty for white-collar crime is considerably less than for street crime. Someone who makes millions of dollars in illegal insider trading in stocks, for example, will spend less time in jail than someone who steals a car. Moreover, he will serve his time in a comparatively comfortable facility. Is this difference in punishment morally justifiable?

BUSINESS

  • It is fairly common today to read of professional athletes refusing to sign contracts with their teams until they are given higher salaries. These demands, which can be for millions of dollars, are regarded by team owners as a form of blackmail. The players, however, believe that their skills are a salable commodity and that they are justified in getting as high a salary as they can bargain for. Are such demands justifiable? Are they so only in certain circumstances? Explain.

MEDICINE

  • Jack Kevorkian (also called “Dr. Death”) achieved notoriety and a prison sentence by assisting terminally ill people in committing suicide. He provided them with a specially designed machine that allowed them to push a button and release a fatal dose of anesthesia into their bloodstream. Kevorkian believed that what he did was not immoral. In fact, he spoke of the “goodness of planned death” and dismissed criticisms of him as “emotionalism.” Discuss the ethical questions surrounding Kevorkian’s medical “specialty.”

SCIENCE

  • Transplants of organs such as the heart and the kidneys are now routine procedures. Before too long, scientists assure us, the transplant of the brain will also be a reality. Will such an operation ever be ethically justifiable? In answering, be sure to consider the various activities of the brain and their influence on personal identity.

WAR

  • A soldier’s thinking about war may change during his service. For example, after experiencing his first real battle and seeing human beings lying dead or in the agony of pain, a soldier might be prompted to embrace pacifism and request discharge or transfer to a noncombat unit. Such a request would not be looked on favorably by his superiors and usually would be denied. Because the man had accepted training as a combat soldier, they would reason, he would be obligated to finish his term of service. Is this reasoning morally sound? Would it be morally acceptable for the soldier to continue fighting, even though he objected to it on principle?

instructions:

150 words per ethical issue.

Please form your own opinion regarding each ethical issue below and respond using the following guide as a template for your responses:

1. Consider all significant consequences – direct and indirect; obvious and subtle; immediate and delayed; physical, emotional, and intellectual; intended and unintended—of the action on the person performing the act as well as on others.

2. Consider any obligations that might exist among the individuals involved—for example, contractual obligations, obligations of friendship or citizenship, and business or professional obligations.

3. Consider relevant ideas – including prudence, justice, temperance, courage, loving kindness, honesty, compassion, forgiveness, repentance, reparation, gratitude, and beneficence.

4. Identify the various alternative responses to the situation. Note that this step may require you to use your imagination.

5. Decide which option is ethically preferable. If two responses produce good or two produce harm, choose the one that produces the greater good or the lesser harm.

Fall 2020

Examination, Part I: Long lead take-home paper

The Purple Line is a Maryland 16 mile light rail line connecting New Carrolton in Prince George’s County to Bethesda in Montgomery County. It will connect to Metro, MARC, Amtrak and bus lines. Construction of the Purple Line has been delayed for many reasons, but especially by persistent resistance through legal challenges. Governors of both parties and local governments have supported the Purple Line. Opposition has been largely from local groups

The Purple line is owned by the Maryland Department of Transportation, Maryland Transit Administration. It is a public-private partnership (P3) in which private companies were to help finance and construct the line and would receive a return over the long term. In 2016, the Purple Line Transit Partners (PLTP) competed and won the right to build, operate and maintain the system for 36 years. The PLTP, a consortium of three companies (Meridiam, Star America and Fluor Enterprises) signed a $5.6 billion, 876 page contract with Maryland to construct the Line over six years and then, operate and maintain it. Federal funding was secured for the project.

In September 2020, PLTP notified the state that it would cease work and terminate the contract. This step culminated a dispute over $800 million of expenses which resulted from the significant construction delays. The State took the position that the cost overruns were the responsibility of the contractor while PLTP argued that they were Maryland’s responsibility.

Efforts to revive the P3 have been ongoing and successful resolution offers advantages for the concessionaire, PLTP, and its investors, their banks and local support groups, and for the State and its leaders and supporting stakeholders. The Fall of 2020 is a crucial time for this effort.

Instructions: Using learning from this course, and …

Culture Project

The topic is to learn more about a different culture or subculture. This project embraces Universal Design, the idea that students can demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways and are more engaged if they choose how the material is presented.  The core of the project is that you will learn more about a culture or subculture that intrigues you and present it to me in the format that resonates the most with you as a student, along with incorporating a few course terms.

Examples:

You might:

• Interview a family member from a different culture and write a paper about what you learned• Conduct research online about a culture or subculture through watching a Frontline video and report on what you learned• Visit a skate park and observe others skating and develop what you think the norms are from observation, possibly using pictures• If you like to cook, you might do some research on the culinary history of a culture you choose and learn to make a dish.  (For this one, you’d have to take pictures of you and your product and explain what you learned about the cooking norms in the culture, as well as relate it to material culture.)• Write a song or create something that relates to a culture or subculture you belong to.

The key is that I want to know what you have learned from the experience and this must be your original work.  If you use any resources, make sure to include a citation.A works cited page including the textbook for terms is required. What insights have you had about this other culture and yourself?Please, keep your examples “G” rated for me.  If you aren’t sure if I’d find it offensive, don’t use it.

What your project must contain:

• You must define and discuss at least two related terms from the culture chapter.  For example, if you learn about South African culture, you would likely want to define and discuss what norms, values, material culture, etc. are. It might be that you find something in the culture or subculture you are learning about surprising so you might want to include ethnocentrism or culture shock as your terms. You will be illustrating that you understand the ideas from the class.

• You will conduct research through interviewing, watching a documentary, observation, etc. to learn more about the culture or subculture you chose.

• You will create a product: a paper, a presentation, a creative work like a song, etc.

• There are many different ways you could present this topic to me.  You could write a paper similar to your first paper, create a PowerPoint, create a video and post it on Youtube with a link, etc.  The key is that you choose what works for you. That said, you have to make sure that I can access the material that you create.

• You will include citations for any outside sources you used.

Preparing for the Project:

(1) Review the materials in Chapter 3 on Culture, as well as the related course materials like the slides.(2) Decide on a culture or subculture that you’d like to learn more about and to teach me about.(3) Do you have the skills and materials to present your project in the way that you want?  If not, what can you do to gain them?(4) Are you using a format that your teacher will actually be able to access?  It’s your responsibility to check on this.
