Business portfolio project assignment | Operations Management homework help

Need this by 12/30/14. NO plagirism. Must be an original paper and can not be cited from Wilipeida.

 

Your Portfolio Project is to create a research and reflection paper that synthesizes information gathered from an interview you will conduct with an individual of your choosing who reports/has reported directly to, or works/has worked closely with, a manager; the knowledge you’ve gained in this course; and your personal experiences.

 

Be sure to read the Portfolio Project description below thoroughly before beginning to work on the project.

 

 

 

Interview

 

For your interview, choose someone with whom you are familiar—ideally, someone you know well. The individual should currently report to, or have reported to in the past, one or more managers. Ask her or him for some time—perhaps you can sit down for coffee—during which you can describe your course learning objectives and discuss what you have so far taken away from the class (in brief). Ask your interviewee what insights she or he has to offer about what makes a good manager.

 

The goal of the interview is to gain insight into what makes a good manager from the perspective of the employee. Some topics to touch on in the interview could include the following:

 

  • Does your interviewee have a favorite manager with whom he or she has worked? Ask for an explanation of why this manager is a favorite.
  • What does your interviewee believe makes a strong manager?
  • Does your interviewee aspire to be a manager someday?
  • What does your interviewee believe it means to be an effective leader (as opposed to the popular view of what a successful leader is and/or does)?
  • What roles do managerial goals, objectives, decision making, and communication play on the job, on a regular basis?
  • How does the interviewee handle changes at his/her organization, and what specific challenges has she or he encountered with managers in the past?
  • What advice does your interviewee offer to someone who is looking to become a manager?

 

 

Research and Reflection Paper

 

In the next phase, ruminate on what you learned in your interview—especially anything that helped you gain a deeper insight into the topics we’ve studied in the course. Then, write a research and reflection paper in which you draw upon our shared learning, your individual learning, and the additional discernment you’ve gained from the interview to demonstrate a more in-depth understanding of the foundational principles of management. Go beyond a mere recitation of memorized facts or regurgitation of information; strive to synthesize the most important topics of management (i.e., leadership, personality, motivation, decision making, communication, and the importance of good management to yourself and  society) into a hybrid research and reflection paper.

 

Your well-organized and coherent paper should integrate responses to each of the following questions:

 

  • What leadership precepts did your interviewee impart to you (or what can you glean on the topic as a result of your interview), and how do those dovetail with one or more of the modern theories of leadership?
  • How do the personalities of workers, colleagues, managers, and subordinates impact performance in and experience of the workplace? How do they interact with one or more leadership models to create the most effective work environment?
  • In light of your interview, the leadership model(s) you’ve discussed, and your own personality, what one or two tenets of motivation theory have you taken away from the course?
  • How does your understanding of effective motivation theories impact your conceptions of the best practices when it comes to making decisions and communicating at work?
  • Based on your interview and on knowledge gained from this course, what does it take to be an effective employee, a successful manager, and an exemplary citizen of society?

 

Your well-written paper should meet the following requirements:

 

  • Be 8-10 pages in length
  • Cite at least three scholarly sources to support your assertions and strengthen your arguments, at least one of which is not provided in, or linked from, the course. The CSU-Global Library is a great place to find these sources!
