You should submit a one to two page proposal to the instructor using the appropriate Assignment Board by the end of Week 2.  You should spend some time on framing the proposal since this helps you focus on what you want to research and how you want to approach the subject.  Please see the syllabus for additional information on the paper.
The paper should focus on either strategic planning or operational planning.  Some individuals are high enough in their organization to be able to engage in strategic planning.  This paper can then be how you would develop a strategic plan.  For another group, you might be able to assess a strategic plan that is in place for an organization with which you are familiar.  Some others in class work in an operation where they can assess how an operational plan has been developed and can assess that.  Another group of students may be able to develop their own operational plan.  In some cases, the student may want to develop a strategic plan for himself or herself.  Do not look at companies with which you have no intimate knowledge since many organizations do not provide all aspects in their public documents.  I know some of you might want to explore companies that are worldwide or known throughout the world, but this is not appropriate for this class.
After you submit your proposal to the instructor via the Assignment, it will be returned to you with comments.  Do not post the project information until the paper has been approved.  If you will be using parts of previously submitted papers, you must notify me.  I will be running the papers through SafeAssign, and if the paper was submitted for another assignment, it will indicate a conflict, which can impact your grade.
