1. case study

The purpose of a case analysis assignment is to provide you with an opportunity to apply concepts from class to real-world situations. The case analysis should be brief and concise, no more than four to eight pages, double spaced, plus a title page and a reference page. Please be sure to incorporate theories or concepts from class or other readings and reference them appropriately. Your Case Study Assignment is provided below:

2. industry analysis paper

The fundamental assumption of this assignment is that the profit potential of any firm is a function of:

(1) the industries it operates in; and

(2) the competitors it opposes.

Therefore, to enhance profits, executive management must understand the industry structure and competition. The profits within an industry are affected by a wide range of influences, including the macroeconomic environment, cost and demand structures of the industry, technological change and government regulation. Competitive moves and responses of incumbents also affect firm profits. Actions taken by firms to improve competitive position engender responses by other firms, and the expected sequence of actions and responses must be understood to develop an effective strategy. Reactions of rivals will depend on their goals or intent, beliefs, relative resource positions and past actions. Thus, the approach to studying the dynamics of industry structure and competitors is to focus on the key characteristics of industry structure and the individual competitive moves and countermoves by the competitive players. Using the components of a competitive analysis model (e.g., Porter, Blue Ocean) you will select two companies in an industry in which you have some interest or familiarity. In a 7-10 page paper, you will critically analyze and contrast the competitive strategy of the two companies and then develop a competitive profile for each. The competitive profile should answer the following questions:

1. What is each company’s current competitive strategy (be specific)?

2. What are they doing to improve their current competitive position?

3. What likely moves or strategy shifts will they make?

4. Where is each company most vulnerable?

5. What competitive moves will provoke the greatest and most effective retaliation by each company?

6. Would you recommend the continuation or modification of each company’s current strategy (support your rationale with specifics)?

business ethics unit 3 project

This assignment provides you with an opportunity to create a code of ethics for you and your family, as well as to explain

the strategies and thought processes that went into developing the code. First, create an original code of ethics for your

family by thinking about your family as an organization. In your code of ethics, please include the following items:

 guiding principles,

 purpose of the code,

 core values,

 training and education (How will you train and educate others about the code?),

 definitions,

 who it covers,

 mission statement, and

 other pertinent elements you feel necessary to have a comprehensive code of ethics.

The next part of this assignment involves an evaluation, where you describe the thought process behind the code of

ethics that you prepared. For the evaluation part of this assignment, draft an essay to include the following items:

 Identify the key roles of those who have a vested interest in the ethical behavior that your code defines.

 Explain the strategies and thought processes that you used to formulate the code.

 Explain how you would strategically implement and communicate the code to others in the organization.

 Explain how you will monitor the practice of ethical decision-making.

 Provided that laws exist and have been enacted for resolving conflict, why do we also need a code of ethics?

In the process of writing your code, you must research the topic of codes of ethics and incorporate at least two articles, no

older than five years. Your code and evaluation must be at least 1,000 words. Format the code as you like; however, be

sure it is professional and legible. Format the evaluation part of the assignment by using APA Style. Save both parts in

Fallacies (News Media and Bias)

Understanding Fallacies (Continued)

News Media and Bias

The news media we consume affects us, but we also affect it. Most people think that they perceive truth objectively, as it is. However, we all see things from a point of view and people tend to seek news media that supports their points of view. This can serve to further entrench us in a more narrow way of looking at things while at the same time making us feel more certain that our point of view is objective and neutral. We also learned in Chapter 8 that people have biases (such as the confirmation bias) that make it hard for them to embrace ideas that contradict with their own points of view. This week’s discussion seeks to explore how we can free ourselves from these tendencies.

Prepare: Read Section 8.3 in the course text on “Media and Mediated Information,” as well as Section 8.1, paying special attention to the section about confirmation bias. Then watch the Critical Thinking on LIVING SMART with Patricia Gras (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. [NSC1] video about the relationship between media and ideology.

Reflect: Think about the ways in which people consume news media that supports their own points of view–everything from the TV news shows they watch to the news articles they are exposed to on social media. Consider what we might do to learn to think more objectively and see things from multiple points of view.

Write: Express your thoughts on the following questions: To what degree and in what ways are people manipulated by the news media that they consume? Make sure to give specific examples. What types of consequences can follow from people having more choices of what media they can consume? Do we control our news media or does it control us? What can people do to break free from media hypnosis and have broader, more objective points of view? In what ways might we strive to overcome confirmation bias? Address anything else that you find relevant and interesting in the chapter and video.

Hint Post: Media and Bias

As you’ve discovered in your readings for this week, we all have biases. We subscribe to certain assumptions about the world and have emotional responses to issues that influence what we do, what we think, what arguments we’ll accept, and even the products we buy and the media we consume–unless we think critically. We need to critically evaluate all sources of information, particularly the news. Don’t assume everything you hear, see, or read is true.

It should be obvious if you’ve paid any attention at all to almost any form of media over the past few years that political beliefs have become a significant source of bias in everything from the news to social media. If you’re not certain of your own political leanings (and maybe even if you are), this quiz (Links to an external site.) (Santhanam, 2016) will help you determine with which political party your beliefs most closely align. The quiz is very basic, but it will give you some direction.

To evaluate the sources where you get your news, the following sites provide evaluations of their political leanings (e.g., on a scale from “Far Left” to “Far Right”–similar to the political party quiz above) and identify sources of outright propaganda and fake news:

1. AllSides (Links to an external site.) — Ratings specifically for online news sources

2. Media Bias Chart 3.1 (Links to an external site.) — Visual representation of the bias of news outlets in relation to each other

3. Media Bias Fact Check (Links to an external site.) — Searchable database of worldwide news outlets

I picked these three, not because I necessarily agree with their assessments (although I do in many cases), but because they explicitly state the methodology used to evaluate media bias. This gives you the opportunity to determine how biased these sites themselves are. Also, I provided 3 sources to allow you to compare the bias attributed to any media outlet. I would encourage you to look up your main source(s) of news to see where it stands and how it reflects your own confirmation bias. I also encourage you to do your own research on your news sources’ bias independently of the sites I’ve provided.

From a critical thinker’s perspective, what is most troubling about the assessments provided by the sites above is not that there is political bias at work–that has always been the case–but the increased number of propaganda, pseudo-science, and conspiracy sources that people are exposed to on a daily basis. With the proliferation of social media and the internet, access to information has increased exponentially, but most people’s processes for evaluating that information has not changed. They allow their cognitive biases to guide their acceptance of information. As critical thinkers, it’s our job to understand our biases and to be on the lookout for their influence, to seek out alternative sources of information that challenge our understanding of the world, and to apply the skills you’re learning in this class to evaluate the veracity of that information.

Consider the extreme case of the Russians using social media to influence the 2016 election (McKew, 2018). Putting aside their motives and the actual impact their actions had, the fact that there was an organized effort by a foreign enemy power to influence the way entire groups of people think by exposing them to false stories through social media is undeniable—MeKew’s (2018) article does a good job of summarizing the evidence. The Russians used our innate cognitive biases and targeted us with stories we were likely to believe because they played into our fears and prejudices (CBS News, 2018). They even created fake social activist groups to put out the information so it would seem more believable. They created stories loosely based in fact for opposing sides of hot button social issues intended to further divide opposing factions knowing that they would be shared over and over again.

Think about your own social media habits or those of your friends. How many times have you read a story and liked or shared it without checking the source or verifying any of the facts? Or if you did look at the source of the article, did you check it out or did you just say to yourself some form of, “That seems like a credible source”? We tend to think that the more something is shared, the more people that “like” the story, particularly when our friends are doing so, the more likely it is to be true. But large numbers of people believing something is true isn’t what makes it true.

When composing your answers to the questions for this discussion, make sure you go into detail to support your answers. It’s not enough to state what you believe. You must also explain why you believe what you do. Think of it as trying to convince the reader that you’re correct. Also, give specific examples to illustrate your points. If you talk about any news stories, commercials, etc., you must give proper APA in-text citations and references.

Summarize this article

Recommendation for The Look

General outlook

The general outlook of the website is the first impression for whoever visits the site. In this case, the website should be phased up with a better pictorial representation of what the organization is all about. The few pictures showing the operations of the organization help create curiosity to any visitor to the site and curiosity could provoke their desire to use the services of the company. On the other hand, it will act as a motivational factor. It could be hard to gain and maintain traffic with such a blank website in terms of color and physical appeal. The first this for the website should lift its face to something that is more pictorial and appealing hence attractive. The pictures and images should be of the products produced by the site. The client should be able to get an idea of what they expect from the site,


In another dimension, it is necessary to have the website include more information about the products, services, and operations as well as the policy of the company. That way, the access to more information allows the users of the site to have the ability to learn more from the site. It is the same information that should be accompanied by images that back up the information to communicate further and better. The website should include a home page that contains an introduction to the company as well as a provision of the section as and services involved in the organization. The policies and warning signs about access and any cases of copyright and fraud should be included. Each page on the site should contain enough information about its deliverables through introductions and details. It is also necessary to create shortcuts which can be used to access the different sections and levels of the site through pop-ups and


The different levels of the website such as sales and marketing and the general website should have exclusive access rights to differentiated levels of clearance in the organization. Each member using the site should have a unique identity that designates their access to the site and therefore making sure they can only access what is cleared for their level. For example, support staff members should not have the access to sales information since that is exclusive to the members of the accounts section. The site should also be open to the general public for simplicity of access. The site should have links that are used as promotional features around the internet and therefore automatically redirect the users to the open site from which they can access the services of the organization.


It is necessary to base the deliverable of the organization in such a way that they are easily accessible in a reliable and timely manner. That means the website should elaborate the details of the products being offered, It should be clear on timing hence indicate the time difference between time of ordering and the time of delivery of given services. Once the services or products are ordered, it should put out the format and procedure of obtaining the right product at the right time and methods of simplifying the process.

Alternatively, the website should manage the traffic of the completed transitions and the ration between the number of visitors and the number that actually complete transactions. That will enable the website to find recommendation of the way forward. There are two types of deliverable in this case. They could be services or physical products being marketed or promoted on the system. The visitors have an opportunity to find information and choose between the two deliverable as per their demand and then single out the order which is made precise. Feedback is key hence there should be an interactive capability by the system to share and promote the response from visitors and users.
