You are planning to expand your fast-food hamburger franchise internationally and have decided to open in the United Arab Emirates, Israel, Mexico and China. Knowing that all of these countries and its people have different cultures, customs, beliefs, values and attitudes that are unique to their country and different from that of the United States, consider how this would impact your fast-food business. What are some of the considerations to keep in mind concerning how these different social and religious values and cultures have on food preparation and eating, the social behaviors to be sensitive to regarding employees and customers, the type of trainings that will be required, the work attitudes and behaviors, and any ethical standards that you may need to develop? Are the attitudes in these countries individualistic or collective?
If you were to send your top managers to these countries, what type of cultural shock should they expect? How would you help them alleviate this stress? Provide a few examples from each country.
In many countries, “expeditors” can help you cut through layers of bureaucracy so that you can get your business done or done faster. Expeditors are normally paid for what they do, and they may ask you to help finance other expeditors within these countries that will help move your business request through the system faster. The methods that are being used could ultimately be unethical, illegal, or maybe not at all.
- How would you go about making sure the practice of an expeditor is legal?
- Would you approve a paid transaction requested by an expeditor if it was acceptable in the country, but unethical back in the United States? (defend your position) What business ethics are involved in your decision making process?
- What factors should you consider and who should you consult with and why?

Here is a B+ Sample Response (It would have been an A if it had used the readings to support the feedback!): i think you got chapter 16

Other than that, I felt that the breadth of your research was very solid. I loved seeing that you had turn of the century sources there! I felt that perhaps your point about Juniper being a tool rather than an object of veneration was well stated on the last page, but perhaps you could have it on that first page too? Just a thought! Otherwise, I think this is an info packed presentation. Why did you think it needed so much in it, rather than just the plain overview?
ok this is the person we will respond to
My big idea is the creation of a non-profit organizationt to assist single parents with affordable childcare. I have created powerpoint slides as a presentation to my audience at a local community center.

Final Project Guidelines
Your final project is a portfolio consisting of revisions of the blueprint for progress that you submitted in Unit 6, the letter to the editor that you wrote in Unit 5, and the presentation that you created in Unit 7. The presentation can take the form of a blog, podcast, brochure, slide show, or one of the other multi-media forms covered in the tech labs or approved by your instructor. You will also write a reflection piece that answers the following questions in paragraph form:
- What did you learn about yourself as a writer? As a thinker?
- What did you learn about the process of writing?
- What skills did you develop that might help you in the future?
- What did you take from the larger conversation with others?
- How did your feedback from peers and your instructor affect the revision of your blueprint, letter to the editor, and presentation?
- You are writing a paper that makes an argument. Its goal is to persuade others of the value of your Big Idea.
- You are using outside research to support this argument, but your paper and presentation should focus on your own ideas and use your own analysis of this outside research to make the argument.
- The length requirement of 5-7 pages is just for the essay component of the assignment. That length does not include the title and references page.
Sources: Your research paper must directly refer to at least five sources (in the paper’s text, not just on the references page). At least two should be scholarly books or articles, and at least one of those should come from the Kaplan library. One great way to find academic sources is to look for articles in refereed or peer-reviewed journals, and “Academic Search Premier” allows you to limit your search to scholarly (peer-reviewed) journals.
Your final project research paper must include a references page containing all sources referenced in your paper and presentation. The references page is in addition to, not included in, the 5-7 page minimum required for the paper. It also must include a title page. You can view models of these in the Writing Center’s reading,APA Manuscript Style and Sample APA Research Paper.
A final important note: your final paper must be original work written for this class. This means that you must be the author (turning in a paper written by someone else is plagiarism and will not be tolerated) and you must not have turned your final project (or another version of it) in for a grade in another class. If you wish to further develop a paper or idea you had for a prior class, you must first get your instructor’s permission to do so, and you must send your instructor that paper along with the instructor’s name, course number, and quarter it was submitted. With rare exception, this is discouraged. The goal of this course is to improve your writing, and that only happens through practice. If you do not write, you cannot improve your writing.
Further, you turned in a draft version (the Unit 6 Project) before your final version (the Unit 9 Project).
You will not receive credit for turning in the same version more than once (for example, turning the same paper in as both your draft and final project).
Your final project must show significant and substantial revision from the draft, meaning multiple paragraphs must be significantly revised, other paragraphs must have been added or deleted, etc. If you are unclear about what constitutes “significant revision” talk to your instructor prior to turning in your final project.
Consult your course Syllabus for grading rubrics for this and other course projects. These rubrics will guide you in how these projects are assessed and graded.
The Final Project will be due at the end of Unit 9.

Many companies find they are forced to remodel their traditional hierarchical structures, which were originally built around functional specialization and centralized authority, to compete in today’s marketplace. Companies often draw on the following five tools of organizational design to make their organizations leaner, flatter, and more responsive to change. The five tools are:
- Empower managers and workers
- Reengineer work processes
- Implementing self-directed work teams
- Rapid incorporation of Internet technology applications
- Networking with outsiders to improve existing capabilities and create new ones
In addition, there are many managerial tasks that shape corporate culture and the leadership skills needed to engage the full organization to produce great results. Examine the dynamics of the elements that must be brought together to create a corporate culture, such as core values and business principles, operating practices and behaviors, ethical standards and attitudes, and work climate and people management practices.
Considering the five tools of organizational design, managerial tasks and leadership skills, examine the practices followed by your selected organization and include the following in a 8–10 page APA formatted paper in MS Word:
Describe which of the five tools of organizational design your selected organization uses to maintain and improve productivity while achieving cost savings. Use detailed examples in your response.
Explain how work groups are utilized in your organization to accomplish the stated goals of the company.
Describe the motivational practices used by the organization to promote better strategy execution. Include some illustrative examples in your response.
Explain how, if at all, the reward system in the organization ties incentives directly to achieving higher productivity and performance targets.
Explain the evaluation and feedback process used in your company to assess employee performance.
Identify the elements in the organization that affect how cultural change is implemented.
Describe the ethical model being used by the company.
Present your overall opinion of the organization’s corporate strategy approach. Is the strategy execution effort delivering the expected results? Explain and illustrate your conclusions.
Describe what specific actions have been taken to delegate authority to middle and junior managers and to create a sense of empowerment among employees. Explain and illustrate your answers.
Avoid plagiarism: Using someone else’s words or ideas in your paper without proper acknowledgement constitutes plagiarism and is unacceptable in any situation. Make sure you have properly documented the source of original facts, ideas, and interpretations that you use in your paper. This must be done whether you summarize information or paraphrase what you learned from a particular source.
