|LEC #||PROJECT DELIVERABLES|
|Between lectures 2 and 3||All students must submit via email before 5 pm today, a one page discussion of the project they would like to consider for their final project. Discussion should include but not be limited to:
What is the topic you wish to study?
What questions do you expect to explore?
At this time do you envision this as a white paper potentially for publication, as a case study potentially for future instruction, or as a business plan?
Why are you interested in this topic?
What other studies or experience of yours will you potentially draw from?
Do you expect that this project might be of a confidential nature, for example if it is about a family business or a potential proprietary intellectual property advance?
This marks the 5% completion point of the project.
|Between lectures 4 and 5||All students must submit via email before 5 pm today, a three page summary of the project they would like to consider for their final paper. Discussion should include but not be limited to:
Abstract: A paragraph setting up the issue, describing the [intended] research or analysis, and discussing the possible conclusions. This is similar to the front end of an academic paper or a thesis.
Outline: I would like to see the key areas that will be covered. This should be in enough depth to be easily converted into a 10 page paper in the end. I am looking for a structure that shows you have thought about doing more than just describing a situation; and I am hoping that the outline becomes a work plan that helps you manage your drafting time going forward.
Key References: To what articles, companies, writings, or websites do expect to make your key references?
This marks the 20% completion point of the project.
|Between lectures 7 and 9||All students must submit project drafts that are 60% complete (all of the organization, most of the writing, most of the research).|
|9||All students must submit their 100% complete projects electronically, by the start of the class session.|
