Assignment 3: Selection of Client Organization and Research
In this assignment, you will identify a global organization with branches in different countries and select this company as your client organization. Use the Argosy University online library resources to research the selected client organization and evaluate whether adequate information is available in peer-reviewed journal articles, as well as other periodicals, newspapers, corporate Web sites, and publications.
- Select an organization as your “client.” Provide sufficient research resources (at least 5) to support your selection.
- Develop a brief summary (1-2 pages) of your client organization’s history, current status, and competitive position within the industry.
- Explain why the organization you selected meets the requirements of this assignment.
- Prepare an annotated bibliography of your references (at least 5). An annotated bibliography is a list of the citations followed by an approximately 150 word descriptive and evaluative paragraph. The purpose of the annotated bibliography is to inform the reader of the relevance and quality of the sources cited.
Apply current APA standards for writing style to your work.
Use the following file-naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M1_A3. For example, if your name is John Smith, your document will be named SmithJ_M1_A3.
