Create a PowerPoint presentation with graphics about the company you selected Ensure that the following information has been researched and represented in the PowerPoint:
What is the company known for? What does it do right? What are its mission and values? Does it work toward social responsibility?
What is the company's background—what is the source of its leadership, conscience and approach to social responsibility? What is the rationale for employee-friendly endeavors? What is the history behind its good governance?
Who leads this company toward excellence presently? What are that person's values? Are the values stated by the leader(s)? Do those values drive the company and carry over to its employees? What are the leadership qualities of the people responsible for its success?
Is the company profitable? Can you be a caring organization and still be profitable? (You may need to look for a financial report in Business Source Complete available in the Chamberlain library database).
PowerPoint advice: Every slide should have clear, readable text no smaller than 28 point font; remember to limit your use of full sentences. Each slide should also have some kind of visual to enhance the communication of that content. Using APA guidelines cite your sources, including in-text citations. The professional team product includes an introduction, multiple content slides, and a conclusion, as well as a reference slide. Better products usually have about 15 to 20 slides (four or five from each student). You may need more for more complex products. More detailed guidelines on presentation techniques is provided in a document “PowerPoint dos and don’ts” in the Files section of the Course Menu.
Submit your team assignment deliverable/product to the team discussion, the Files section of the Course Menu for all to see, and to the Team Assignment area. The presentation is posted in the team discussions so that you can all work on it, and the team leader or designee should post a final copy in the Files section of the Course Menu so other teams can see it. Each participating team member should post the same final copy in his or her own Week 3 Team Assignment area so that it can be graded.
Remember to post the TLMR (Team Leader and Member Report) in Team discussions, and in your own area along with the deliverable/ product (PowerPoint).
In-class students must be ready to present your product to the class at the beginning of next week’s class.
