Week 7 – Signature Assignment: Write and Analyze a Case Study

Previous Next 

Instructions

Identify an organizational problem in a public administration-related organization (e.g., the one you work in, a local government agency, or a nonprofit/religious organization; it should not be a for-profit company). So far in this course, you have analyzed three case studies. In this assignment, you will not have a case study to analyze. Instead, you will provide the case and the problem (based on your own knowledge, experience, or research) and discuss it, and provide plausible solutions. In this Signature Assignment, you will also analyze the problem (whereas in the previous assignments, you simply summarized the problem). In your analysis of the problem, connect the case study with as many of the themes of this course (human behavior, principles, and techniques in management and organizational behavior, supervising public employees, organizational planning, which directly relate to the four learning outcomes stated in the course syllabus) as are relevant.

Follow this format when writing your assignment:

  • Write an introductory paragraph.
  • Summarize the organizational problem in the case study.
  • Analyze the problem, such as why it occurred, specific issues, and/or related problems.
  • Provide three plausible solutions to the problem.
  • Analyze the impact of these three plausible solutions.
  • Recommend which solution you suggest should be implemented and articulate reasons for your recommendation.
  • Write a conclusion paragraph.

In your paper, please use clear, bolded headings to separate the paper into sections.

Length: 5-7 pages

References:  Include a minimum of five scholarly resources.

Your assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards. Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy. 

 

Week 8 – Assignment: Create a Brochure on Organizational Planning

Previous Next 

Instructions

Returning to the fictional committee you are a part of in the city government in which you live (or another city, if you wish), you have been asked to create a brochure to distribute to employees. The topic of this brochure is strategic planning. Specifically, the brochure will help city employees understand the steps and concepts related to a new strategic planning process initiated by the city manager. Since all of your fellow department heads trust you, and have applauded your efforts to educate them through your previous assignments, they are asking you to create a brochure to educate all employees about the concepts of strategic planning, including what level of input employees will have (you have been given the authority to decide this, by the city manager, and were instructed to include this in the brochure; so, you can decide on this matter). Importantly, because the plans are still being deliberated, and are not yet clear, you are unable to discuss specifics of the strategic planning initiative. Therefore, you will create a brochure that discusses strategic planning more generally.

  • Using at least three sources, create a brochure (in 11 or 12-point font) using the template that is included this week.
  • In the brochure, explain the process and reasons behind strategic planning.
  • Find photos online and add them to the brochure, where appropriate.

Your goal is to produce a brochure that your colleagues will happily share with their staff. Include sources, as well as photo credits and links to the photos, at the end of the brochure, in 9-point font.

Length: 2 pages

References:  Include a minimum of three scholarly resources.
