The purpose of assignment is to give you the opportunity to:
(1) better understand theories and concepts we discussed in this course
(2) implement theoretical concepts into practice, and
(3) improve your critical thinking and writing skills.
You will reflect on an organizational problem that you experienced. I use the term "organizational" quite broadly; you can write about an experience at a summer job, on a sports team, a school work group, or any other situation in which you worked with other people for the purposes of completing a collective task. Once you have selected an organizational problem from your past, you should describe and diagnose the problem using concepts from the course, outline the factors that contributed to the situation, and discuss how the concepts could have helped you and/or others deal with the situation more effectively.
The paper must be between 5 and 8 pages, double-spaced in 12-point Times New Roman font with 1" margins around.
