For this week’s discussion, please choose one of the following four multi-national corporations which operate in both the United States and Eastern European countries: Apple, Volkswagen, Maersk, and BP. Next, do some research on the CEO of the company, looking for how this leader is described, his/her areas of expertise, and whether his/her leadership is deemed effective or non-effective. Then prepare a minimum 200-word response with the highlights of this leader. Although not required, consider including a picture or other interesting media. Use the Title of your post to state the company and CEO name. For example, your title could read, “Apple-Tim Cook.”
This forum will be graded based upon your initial post and 2 replies. Though these are both due at 11:59pm Saturday of this week, please make every attempt to submit your initial post by Wednesday so that we can have a more robust discussion.
DB POSTING REMINDERS:
Please remember the initial post should be written as early in the week as possible, and the peer responses are due by Saturday evening.
Be sure to reference your eText or other research to support your response. You will be graded on how you relate the class readings to your initial post.
When you make your initial post, please fully answer the question and make substantive responses – i.e. at least 200 words that really dive into the topic and show that you’ve read in your texts and done research to support your opinions.
Apply appropriate examples that illustrate your points – feel free to bring your workplace experiences into the discussion. It helps us all learn when we can relate our past workplace experiences to what we’re learning here in the discussions.
You must reply substantively (at least 50 words that welcome further discussion) at least twice to your classmates and/or your instructor.
All discussions and assignments required the use of APA to cite and list references. APA stands for the American Psychological Association and the guidelines that they develop for formatting and citing sources in research papers are required in many college-level classes that deal with areas of Business, Criminal Justice, and Education. Here you will find some practical information about what APA style and format are and how to use them.
