Assignment #2

Ethics, HRM, and IS/KM

This assignment, your second research assignment, builds on the readings in Units 4, 5 and 6. Please use the pre-formatted Unit 6 APA Assignment Template, linked in the Resources. You may also consult the APA Style Template, also provided in the Resources, but be certain to complete your assignment using the unit-specific template.

The basic concept you will address is how ethics, human resources and talent, and information systems and knowledge management contribute to the overall performance of the organization. Pick three (3) specific articles, one from Unit 4 Ethics, Unit 5 HRM, and Unit 6 IS/KM—and then address them within each section of the assignment.

When conducting your research, be prepared to answer the following:

Introduction

  • Always begin all doctoral research papers by describing the purpose of the paper including the specifics of what will be covered in the body. Typical length is 150 to 200 words.

Theory–Article Deconstruction

  • Apply MEAL to deconstruct the selected three articles.
    • Main points for each article. Include at least three but no more than five points.
    • Evidence. What type of data is presented? Is it factually supported or an opinion? What are the sources of data?
    • Analysis. What type of analysis, evaluation, or application are presented in the article?
    • Linking. How well do the authors in each of the articles convey their ideas, facts, analysis and support? This gets at readability of each article
  • Typical length: 300 words per article.

Case Study Application

  • Select a Fortune 500 company for your case discussion. This company must be different than the one you used for the Unit 3 assignment.
  • Based on your analysis of the articles used in your research, present and align concepts to the specific case organization.
  • Typical length: 1600 words.

Conclusion

  • What conclusions can be drawn from the theories presented and the evidence applied to your case study organization? The conclusion is typically 150–200 words.
  • This section of every paper pulls together theory and application.

Learner Option

  • For those of you that want to build competencies faster, you have the option of preparing a table in the Theory section of the paper.
  • Insert a table which compares each of the three articles, using MEAL: how are they alike? How are they different?
  • Your faculty instructor will provide feedback on effectiveness.

Additional Requirements

Your submitted paper must meet the following requirements:

  • Use the assigned readings from Unit 4–6 and supplement with other literature to support your research.
  • Be a minimum of 1800 words in length: this is three double-spaced pages, excluding the cover page and reference list.
  • Follow current APA guidelines for style and format, including a cover page and headings.

Note: Your instructor may also use the Writing Feedback Tool to provide feedback on your writing. In the tool, click the linked resources for helpful writing information.

  • APA Style Template [DOCX].
  • Writing Feedback Tool.
  • MEAL Plan.
  • MEAL PLAN
  • This guide is a helpful tool when constructing paragraphs and essays. Here’s how the MEAL
  • plan relates to essays and paragraphs.
  • Main Idea
  • Every paragraph should have one main idea. An essay or piece of writing similarly focuses on one topic. If you find that your paragraphs have more than one main idea, separate your paragraphs so that each has only one main point. The idea behind a paragraph is to introduce an idea and expand upon it. If you veer off into a new topic, begin a new paragraph.
  • Evidence
  • Your main idea needs support, either in the form of evidence that supports your argument or examples that explain your idea. If you don’t have any evidence or examples to support your main idea, your idea may not be strong enough to warrant a complete paragraph. In this case, re-evaluate your idea and see whether you need even to keep it in the paper.
  • This goes the same for writing an essay. The evidence should support the main argument of the writing assignment. If it does not, then your writing may lack focus and need to be revised.
  • Analysis
  • Analysis is the heart of academic writing. While your readers want to see evidence or examples of your idea, the real “meat” of your idea is your interpretation (analysis) of your evidence or examples:
  • • how you break them apart
  • • compare them to other ideas
  • • use them to build a persuasive case
  • • demonstrate their strengths or weaknesses
  • Analysis is especially important if your evidence (E) is a quote from another author. Always follow a quote with your analysis of the quote, demonstrating how that quote helps you to make your case. If you let a quote stand on its own, then the author of that quote will have a stronger voice in your paragraph (and maybe even your paper) than you will.
  • Link or Transition
  • Links help your reader to see how your paragraphs fit together. When you end a paragraph, try to link it to something else in your paper, such as your thesis or argument, the previous paragraph or main idea, or the following paragraph. Creating links will help your reader understand the logic and organization of your paper, as well as the logic and organization of your argument or main points. Key words that are ‘links’ include:
  • • however• thus,• nonetheless,
  • • so • still, despite,• although

Your Paper Title Goes Here (level 1 heading, not bold)

The first paragraph of the composition introduces the topic of the paper in such a way that engages the reader’s attention. Note the changes in the running head from the title page. Only the initial running head includes the words “Running head:” All paper heads include the first 50 characters, including spaces, of your paper’s title with the page number. When crafting your paper’s title, draft carefully and consider the title requirements of APA Rule 2.01. Your title should still make sense, even if it must be shortened. The opening paragraph concludes with a single sentence thesis statement providing a position for the content that clearly aligns with the assignment requirements.

Theory – Article Deconstruction

Begin the body of your paper with a level 1 heading. An example is provided above. When assigning headings in a paper, please keep in mind you must have at least two of each type. For example, you need at least two Level 1 headings in this paper. If you use a Level 2 heading, as indicated below, you will need at least two Level 2 headings. If you use a Level 3 heading, as show below, you will need at least two Level 3 headings.

In this section of the paper is the discussion of the three articles you are deconstructing based on one concept from Unit 4, one from Unit 5, and one from Unit 6. Strong academic writing begins with a transition paragraph, which you would put here telling the reader the articles you will deconstruct and the technique you will use.

Level 2 Heading Used to Break-up into Sub-topics of the Level 1 Heading

Here, replace the Level 2 heading with the article title and Levels 1 and 2 headings are title case. Then replace this article that is being evaluated applying MEAL. For those of you that are more ambitious, trying using a further heading breakdown, using Level 3 heading for each part of MEAL.

Main points. This is a Level 3 heading and here you would type in the content and Level 3 headings are in sentence case.

Evidence. This is a Level 3 heading and here you would type in the content and Level 3 headings are in sentence case.

Analysis This is a Level 3 heading and here you would type in the content and Level 3 headings are in sentence case.

Linking. This is a Level 3 heading and here you would type in the content and Level 3 headings are in sentence case.

Case Study Application: _______

Notice back to a Level 1 heading. Why? This is signaling the reader they are back to another main heading, applying theory. Replace the underscore with the name of the Fortune 500 company you selected. You choose if you need Level 2 headings for the application.

Conclusion (also a Level 1 Heading)

Here, draw conclusions on the entire paper, with both theory and application. The conclusion is also150 to 200 words and does not use Levels 2 or 3 headings.

References

References go on a separate page. Two articles from unit 6 have been placed here as an illustration. It is your responsibility to list all references cited in the body of the paper. All references listed must also be cited in the body. Notice the indenting for each reference beginning in line 2 and they are in alpha order by last name of first author listed. You must add in the MarketLine reference for the Fortune 500 company selected. Then eliminate this instruction paragraph for your paper submission.
