Assignment: Critical Analysis
In this assignment, you will respond to 15 statements and calculate your score in the experimental exercise, and analyze a global problem faced by managers who function internationally.
This assignment will assess your knowledge based on the following Course Outcome:
GM500-4: Apply cultural literacy in personal and professional environments.
Step 1: Experiential Exercise — What Are Your Social Values
Reference the section called “What Are Your Social Values” on page 136 of the Daft textbook. As always, be honest with yourself as you respond to the 15 questions. Calculate and record your score according to the instructions. Your own score measures how effectively you deal with people and ideas from a variety of cultures and how well you are prepared to be a global manager. You will apply this information as you write the Integration section of your paper in Step 3.
Step 2: Case for Critical Analysis
The case called “Talley Guitars” sets the stage for this writing assignment to critically analyze a global problem faced by managers who function internationally. Please reference the section called “Apply Your Skills: Case for Critical Analysis” on pp. 138–139 of the Daft textbook.
A global workplace environment can be done in face-to-face interactions or conducted through virtual meetings and communication. Either way, it can be difficult when organizational members interact with different cultural perspectives. Thoroughly read the scenario of “Talley Guitars” on pp. 138–139. Be prepared to draw from insights you gained in reading “GLOBE Project Value Dimensions” on pp. 128–130, that describe how you can apply cultural literacy in your own personal and professional environments.
Include your assessment of the global management potential of the parties involved.
Step 3: Write and submit your paper
The next step is to compose a 4-page paper (1,000 words) that analyzes your own management aptitude and management theories that you could apply in a contemporary organizational context.
Introduction: What is the objective or purpose in studying and analyzing a case study and applying learning lessons from the text?
