The goal of this assignment is to analyze and apply OB concepts to a real-world case. You are to prepare a short (2-3) page persuasive paper in which you attempt to convince an organization (hypothetical or real) to take a particular action related to an organizational behavior topic. Your paper will be related to issues we discuss in class (or it can be related to another interest you have pertinent to OB if you consult with me first). Sample topics include: why team-based rewards should be used instead of individual rewards (or vice versa), or how the workplace hiring process should be improved. Keep in mind that many organizational leaders may have little professional management training and even less knowledge of social science. Criteria for evaluating your paper will be based on 1) how effectively you marshal the best evidence from the course material to make your case and 2) the extent you have made your case in a strong, truthful, and convincing manner, drawing on what you have learned about persuasion. The paper should be between 2 and 3 pages of text, double-spaced in 12-point Times New Roman font with 1” margins.
