It is important that you are as specific as possible and that you use terms and information gleaned from the text and from research! All research citations must be in APA formatting.
Specific, real-world examples are preferred where possible (discovered by
research). For example, how did a company like Continental Airlines restructure themselves? How do these examples reflect the concepts we are studying? If you must make assumptions to supplement the material you find, if insufficient real-world examples exist, then please identify when you have done so.
Your draft will include all of the required elements of your Final Paper:
