This week you will embark on an assignment that spans two weeks. At the end of Week 2, you will submit a template of your paper and a references page so that I can make sure that you are on the right track for success. When I review that, I will provide you feedback and guidance for your final graded project that is due at the end of Week 3 (Tuesday, October 27, 2020).
Here is more information. The assignment is to conduct research on the emerging trends of your industry and an issue of particular interest to you in one of those trends. You may have practical knowledge of the field but use this assignment to become more immersed or learn more about your new field. Your work should inform and shape strategic decisions. Where is the industry going? What are the new growth areas? A manager uses information about emerging trends to inform planning and shape the organization’s future. You will profit from this research because knowing the trends in your field will enable you to make informed decisions about your own employment options, and perhaps to take advantage of future job opportunities.
This project will span two weeks, and you will owe a draft of your draft paper template and references at the end of Week 2 (Tuesday, October 20, 2020). Just to clarify, all you owe at the end of Week 2 is a draft of your basic format + references. This enables me to address a few important things: how you are coming along with the direction of your research, citation formats, and what kinds of resources you are finding and using for your paper overall. I seek to help you improve the final paper that you will submit in Week 3.
Once you have identified new trends, pick an issue that you would like to explore more. Once you have done some preliminary research, you might want to craft a working hypothesis. You will continue to research and analyze the information that you have found to arrive at some conclusions, which may support your hypothesis; or, you may find that you have found a different answer than you expected. This is worthwhile science, not a failure!
This project will require you to identify a problem or issue that causes you to want to solve or learn more about it. Getting really clear about what you are seeking helps you with your research strategy. Once you have a focused statement or question, you can search on the keywords. You will then identify what information you need to answer that question, and then you will search out that information, and analyze the information to produce “findings”, bringing you to information that helps you to make connections, analyze the facts, taking a balanced approach if the issue is disputed, and come to some conclusions. You will use this process in many ways, from writing grants or other proposals, to identifying a problem in your professional field. The process helps you to conduct effective research for relevant, timely information, and draw well-reasoned conclusions based on your analysis of the facts. The sections of your paper will follow this order. I am bolding the level headings but follow the directions to get things in the right place.
Introduction (use the paper title (not bold) instead of the word “Introduction”, even if that is what you are providing! (Introduce the industry, the top trends, and the issue that you have chosen and share the question or problem that prompted you to learn more.)
Top Trends of the _____ Industry (You will provide the NAICS or SOC codes for the industry that you are researching to demonstrate that you have learned how to navigate the business databases. You will then write about the three top trends in your industry, providing a concise explanation of the trend and how it is trending, and the influence on the industry.)
An Important Emerging Issue in a trend and what it means in context to the industry (Here you will describe and discuss the issue you chose, why it is vital to the industry, and what your research produced (both sides if the issue is disputed). You will then make well-reasoned arguments that answer the research question you asked at the start.)
Conclusions (Here you will tie up the trends, the issue, and make some overall conclusions about what your research revealed to you, any gaps that still remain in your understanding of the issue, and your final summary.)
References (Please refer to the APA examples to get these correct.) You will submit draft References pages at the end of Week 2. I will look them over and provide feedback so there is no reason for you to have to re-submit the paper. Remember, these are double-spaced, hang-indented, and in alphabetical order.)
Remember to start at the beginning of the project and use the materials in the steps. Follow the project steps and the APA Manual!
Have a great week!
