Choose one of the issues from either Module 1 or 2 in your textbook. Select the one side of the argument that you felt was most persuasive and share how the author was able to effectively justify their position and support their reasoning. State clearly what element of the argument was most persuasive and why. Also, find a weakness in the same argument and suggest how the author could have improved the writing. (If you cannot find a weakness, you should consider a different argument.)
Your paper should contain the following:
Intro (including thesis)
Body of your paper:
side of the argument you felt was most persuasive and why
weakness in the style of writing and suggestion on how to improve it
Your paper must be no less than 700 words, and must not exceed 800 words. Papers not meeting the word limit or exceeding the word limit will be penalized. You must use at least 1 outside source other than your book. Your paper must be clearly focused and well-reasoned. You must use APA style and provide appropriate parenthetical references and a reference sheet. Use appropriate grammar and organizational elements, as well as third person.
PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE INSTRUCTIONS!!! The case study is added below. You are a Special Assistant to Ms. Patricia Deese Stanton, Assistant Commissioner for Waste Prevention, who has been given responsibility for carrying out The Blackstone Project, a pilot project within the newly reorganized Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection that would totally change the way in which facility inspections are conducted, in an effort to reduce pollution of all kinds at the source. Ms. Stanton has asked you to analyze the situation she is dealing with, from the perspective of internal organizational structure and the structural relationship of the organization with external actors and organizations, as well as from the perspective of human resource frame. Specifically, she has requested a 2-page, single-spaced, 12-point-font, 1-inch-margin memorandum that would address the following questions: 1. What is a major organization/management problem facing Assistant Commissioner Stanton? Why is it important to address this problem? 2. What are the advantages to DEP of the pre-existing approach to inspections, in which inspectors specialized in a certain category of pollution sources (. air, water and hazardous wastes)? Who is most comfortable with this approach and why? 3. What are the advantages of integrating inspections? Who would be most open to this approach and why? 4. What factors are most influential in leading to the proposed change to an integrated inspection system? Identifying and analyzing key stakeholders in DEP’s organizational environment, including the policy environment of facilities that are inspected? 5. Similarly, how might technological factors (referring to different types of task interdependence and coordination structures operating under specialized versus integrated inspection approaches) make it difficult to achieve integrated inspections? 6. What specific recommendations do you have, including human resources development strategies (take into account motivational theories and five HR strategies we discussed in class), for how to implement the Blackstone Project? 7. Also describe an action plan to implement these recommendations. To address these questions in 2 pages, your memorandum will need to be well organized, clear, concise, and easy to read. In addition to a careful reading and an analysis of the case, make sure you take full advantage of the material that has presented in class, in the readings, and online discussion board. Please Do Not Write in A Question-Answer or Bullet Point format.
Research question(s) Your (feasible) research question is a question that you could address in your Masters dissertation. Your question must be narrow enough for you to be able to engage with it convincingly using the methods you propose within the time frame available and the 10,000 Dissertation word limit. Research questions may be exploratory or confirmatory, descriptive or explanatory, or may not tidily correspond to any of these categories. Regardless of which of these they are, they need to be clearly and explicitly stated. And make sure that they are actually questions (rather than statements or assumptions)! Background literature Briefly describe the broader research topic within which your (feasible) research question is embedded. In particular, what are the main key pieces of theory and/or evidence from the academic literature that describe the evolution of knowledge on your topic and from which your research question emerges? This section should not simply list and describe a series of papers on the subject; in a high-quality research proposal, the research question should emerge quite organically as the ‘point of departure’ from what has already been published (. the background topic literature). The Research Question should be clearly stated at the end of the literature review. Research Design The research design is a feasible analytical strategy to address your research question. This will include the decisions about what kind of data or evidence will be used, and how this evidence will be analyzed. For example, common types of evidence include secondary studies, key informant interviews, surveys, ethnographies, secondary data, or other types of data/information and/or a combination thereof. Common analytical frameworks include comparative case studies, quantitative or qualitative causal analysis (., difference-in-difference estimation), discourse analysis, thematic analysis, a critique of a body of literature from a particular theoretical perspective, or a critical exploration of the strengths and weaknesses of existing theory and evidence. Your analytical strategy may combine several approaches and/or may not even have a formal name – but you should be clear about what your sources of evidence are, how you have selected them, how you have analysed your evidence in order to answer your research question. You should outline a research design that is feasible as an MSc dissertation and make clear how the elements of your research design (., the selection of evidence, the analysis, the choice of location or population, the theoretical tools) help you to provide an answer to your research question. You do not need to go into technical depth, nor do you need to actually collect any evidence. You should show awareness that you could have made different design choices and justify the approach you decided to take. You should also show awareness that your chosen approach allows you to make some claims but not others. The bulk of the word count should be given over to the Research Design section. Limitations and critical considerations In this section you should discuss the feasibility and limitations of your proposed research design. You should consider how aspects of your research design (and/or the designs of key studies you draw on) limit what you can know, or claim, as part of your outcomes/conclusions. If you propose to do a critical exploration of the existing (secondary) theory and evidence, the trade-offs and limitations of your own dissertation will include the trade-offs and limitations in the key studies you draw on, and how the research design choices of these source studies in turn may limit your own analysis and conclusions. References Please include proper in-text citations and a reference list, consistently using a standard reference format (., the Harvard referencing system). Key details: Word limit: 1500 words (excluding title/contents page and bibliography, but including text in tables and footnotes.)
