Journal 07/02 | BA 611 Organization Theory | Campbellsville University

 Pick one of the following terms for your research: centralization, contingency, decentralization, efficiency, mechanistic, organic, organizational behavior, scientific management, stakeholder, or sustainability. (PLEASE CHOOSE STAKEHOLDER)

Within each module, there is a list of key terms. Each student will select one of the key terms and conduct a search of Campbellsville University’s online Library resources to find 1 recent peer reviewed article (within the past 3 years) that closely relate to the concept. Your submission must include the following information in the following format: 

DEFINITION: a brief definition of the key term followed by the APA reference for the term; this does not count in the word requirement.

SUMMARY: Summarize the article in your own words- this should be in the 150-200-word range. Be sure to note the article’s author, note their credentials and why we should put any weight behind his/her opinions, research or findings regarding the key term. 

DISCUSSION: Using 300-350 words, write a brief discussion, in your own words of how the article relates to the selected chapter Key Term. A discussion is not rehashing what was already stated in the article, but the opportunity for you to add value by sharing your experiences, thoughts and opinions. This is the most important part of the assignment. 

REFERENCES: All references must be listed at the bottom of the submission–in APA format. (continued) Be sure to use the headers in your submission to ensure that all aspects of the assignment are completed as required. Any form of plagiarism, including cutting and pasting, will result in zero points for the entire assignment. 

Organizational Analysis Paper Each student will write an 8-10-page paper on an organization of his or her choice. The submission must be typed, double-spaced, and have uniform 1-inch margins in 12-point Times New Roman font. The organizational analysis will contain the following sections: 

 Introduction of the organization, including history and background. 

 Organizational strategy.

 Organizational design and your assessment of effectiveness. 

 Organizational culture.

 Conclusion and what you would change about the selected organization for improvement.

300-400 words APA format not needed.
