(Part 3: pgs. 482-490) or (Part 4: pgs. 598-607): (Select one of the options) Critical Incidents 3.pdf to which you must respond with a well-constructed (and brief) case memo. “Well-constructed” means that your memo is firmly based in the management theory and practical applications of management that we have studied during the semester to that point.
The memo must also offer coherent management solutions or recommendations for the problem presented in the case. Memos will be no more than two single-spaced pages and use a typical memo format (formatting instructions will be provided). A comprehensive rubric for the first memo is provided at the end of this syllabus to guide you. The second memo’s rubric will be very similar. Use the questions for discussion to guide you in your responses.
Full disclosure: All memo assignments and team projects, which you will submit via Canvas, will be automatically run through IU’s Turnitin system to check for plagiarism.
Pro Tip: Write the memos from the perspective that YOU are the manager (or an individual participating in the decision-making process) who must deal with, solve, or assess the situation, issue, or problem for your organization. Make recommendations for addressing the current context, but also outline future ramifications and policy changes that might help to prevent uncertainty in the future. Finally, be sure to consider possible unintended consequences of implementing your recommendations. Above all, follow the instructions and rubric.
