Week 1: Assignment Content


  1. Working in business management means taking on responsibility to lead your organization in a variety of situations. Part of that responsibility is understanding where an organization has been and where it’s going. In this course, you put yourself in the shoes of a manager and use resources to make decisions on where an organization is heading in respect to business needs, organizational structure, leadership strategies, and change management. Some of the information needed may be easy to locate, but other information may take time and effort to find. Some may even need assumptions based on research. These research and strategizing skills will be useful in your business management career.
    Select a company and learn about its history. This will prepare you for your Wk 2 Analysis.
    Note: Some reports are more recent than others. It’s in your best interest to find a company with a recent (within 2 years) report.
    Use Dow Jones and Company
    for the next 5 weeks (this will sometimes be referred to as “your company”).
    Create a chart or outline that conveys the following information:

    • Name of company
    • Industry
    • Brief history of company
    • At least 3 milestones from the company’s history
    • 3 resources (in addition to Business Source Complete) where you can locate company information in future weeks. This may include company websites, current employees, journals, etc.
    • Define 1 new unique business opportunity the company can do to increase their competitive advantage.
    • Identify a function of management that is needed.
    • WEEK 2 assignment content

    • Managers at each level of the organization use a type of SWOT analysis to identify strategies that will best position the company to achieve its mission and goals. The first step in a SWOT analysis is to identify an organization’s strengths and weaknesses that characterize the present state of the company. The next step requires managers to identify potential opportunities and threats in the environment that affect the organization in the present or possibly in the future. When the SWOT analysis is complete, managers begin developing strategies. These strategies should allow the company to attain its goals by taking advantage of opportunities, countering threats, building strengths, and correcting organizational weaknesses.
      Use the company and SWOT analysis you selected in Week 1 for this assignment.
      Congratulations! You’ve been hired as a manager and have been asked to analyze the current status of your new company.
      Review your company’s SWOT analysis and other available sources to evaluate the strategic needs of the organization within a changing global environment. Use the Wk 2 Apply Worksheet for your evaluation.
      Note: This type of information is often found in the company’s annual report.
