Find a news article that reports a problem that interests you (use the library databases ProQuest or EBSCOHost Academic Search Premiere, and Google’s okay, too). Make sure the issue relates to business in some way (you can be creative in connecting it to business).
SCENARIO: As the CEO of a company (fictional or real; your choice), you find this article and realize this problem might affect your organization. You can write as the company who stands to lose from this problem, or as a company who will benefit from this problem (your choice). If it’s a problem, write a memo analyzing this article to inform your employees and assuage concerns. If it’s an opportunity for your company, you can discuss how you will capitalize on it. Please focus on your audience.
FIRST PARAGRAPH: Introduce the problem and state the author’s full name (the first time you mention it), the title of the article, and who published the article. You will follow this information with what the reader can expect from this memo, which will have three sections (each section gets a heading that tells the reader what that section will discuss):
The Summary section provides an overview of the article and the problem. What is this article’s main purpose, and how does it support this purpose with major points? Please answer the WHO, WHAT, WHERE, and WHEN. Refrain from including your opinion when writing a summary. You can write multiple paragraphs if necessary.
The Analysis discusses how this article represents this problem and how it affects your company and employees.
Use why and how questions to enhance your analysis.
Please come up with your own Why and How questions to expand your analysis.
The Recommendations for the Future (or Moving Forward) offers solutions to the problem or suggestions on how your company/organization will approach this problem. It also considers how this problem might take time to address, so how will you proceed into the future? Please provide specific ideas, examples, steps, plans, and/or strategies to pursue success. Repetition from your summary and/or analysis is okay.
Please use APA or MLA citation practices when referring to your selected article (both in-text citations and Reference or Work Cited at the end).
Please write a 100-word summary of the chapters and a 250-word analysis discussing why the ideas presented matter and how they will help you as a writer. You will submit your response through the corresponding discussion board under Discussions on Blackboard before our next class meeting. You will then write a 250-word response to a colleague’s post before class.
ASSIGNMENT: Write an analysis of a news article in memo format (with business block format) to your employees stating how this news issue/problem might affect your company (you are the CEO)
