For this assignment, you are to choose a specific organization with a communication problem then, design a program for applying a solution to this issue within your area of expertise (organizational communication) to this specific organizational setting.
This assignment is much more flexible and allows you to exercise a fair amount of creativity in your application.
Try to find a way to use your expertise in organizational communication in a way that would appeal to people in the real world and would really help them
in their organizational lives.
As you do this, though, you need to be sure that the way in which you “apply” your expertise remains true to the research and theory within organizational communication.
Your paper should include an introduction in which you will introduce briefly the organization and provide
a preview of the communication problem that includes how it affects organizational members.
The body of your paper should provide an
in-depth look at the organization (what it does, how its communication is structured: think of Approaches in your textbook here; classical etc.),
an in-depth look at the communication problem within the organization,
what process you will use to improve or solve the communication problem and,
your recommendations for solving the problem as well as your explanation for why your recommendations will work based on the concepts discussed in the text.
Your paper should include references to specific concepts or research findings you have learned from the text, lecture, discussion, other class materials, and your additional research.
Your paper also should include specific examples that support the points you are trying to make.
Your paper should include a conclusion that summarizes the main points of your paper
