Additionally, the project offers you the opportunity to develop and create your own recommendations for the organization. Each week, you will complete a weekly project (parts A - E) and, in week 7, you will synthesize all of this into a final project that will be your recommendations. For the weekly projects, you will be conducting research and presenting findings related to the organization that you selected. For the final project, you will develop a formal recommendations paper based on your research. Consider the weekly projects as a way to examine the current state of the organization. Consider the final project as a way for you to provide recommendations to better the organization. Timeline and Point Allocation See the course calendar for specific due date:

General Guidelines for Parts A-E and Project Recommendations Projects must be completed using APA standards with the inclusion of: o Title page o Abstract o Introduction o Body (with correct use of headings and sub-headings) o Conclusion o Reference Page o Appendices (as needed)

Projects must be completed in third person. Parts A E as well as the Project Recommendations do get submitted to Turnitin as a routine. These assignments require that you conduct and assess scholarly research. A good place to start your research is the online databases accessible through the Davenport University Online Library. [Hint: If you are unsure how to use the databases ask for help by clicking on the Ask A Librarian link]. You can also use professional websites and magazines, quality newspapers and journals. Yet another source would be interviewing leaders within the organization. Note: References like Wikipedia may be a good starting point but it is NOT considered academically credible because the information can be edited by lay people who may not input accurate and validated information. Parts A - E need to have a minimum of 4 scholarly sources outside of our class resources. With each week, you should be expanding your reference list rather than using the same references repeatedly. The Project Recommendations needs to have a minimum of 10 scholarly sources outside of our class resources. It is imperative that you tie your research and recommendations to the course material. Be sure to link your projects to the core concepts from the class. The body for each of the weekly projects will be 4 6 pages. The body for the final project will be a minimum of 10 pages. The universitys policy on plagiarism and academic honesty apply.

Part D: Leadership and Organizational Structure Conduct and present research that evaluates the leadership style fostered in this organization. Provide examples of both its effectiveness and ineffectiveness. Describe how leaders are (or are not) nurtured and developed. Analyze how the organizational structure also manifests itself within the organization.
