Selecting an Organization
Explore news/current events to locate a business that has a complex
problem which needs to be addressed. The problem may be related to any
business topic (i.e. accounting, marketing, legal, etc.).
It is suggested that you select a
recent problem of a public company, which will ensure that you will have
access to the information necessary to complete your project.
As you select an organizational
problem for your class project, it is important that you select an
organization that is interesting, possibly useful to you in your career,
industry, or interests. An organization or industry you are interested
in should give you better access to information.

Skim the case to get an overview of the situation.
Read the case thoroughly to digest the facts.
Carefully Review information in exhibits.

peer-reviewed academic journal articles covering the appropriate topics
that apply to your specific problem from the following list:
Business Communications
Business Ethics

Business Integration and Strategic Management
