analyzing how an organization handles creativity, applying the concepts from the course, and offering suggestions for improvement.

This individual assignment is your opportunity to demonstrate your mastery of the materials studied in this course and apply what you have learned to a specific company or organization. It is essentially your final exam.

You will demonstrate your mastery by analyzing how an organization handles creativity, applying the concepts from the course, and offering suggestions for improvement.

The organization that you choose needs to be one you are intimately familiar with. We want the analysis to go deep, which means that you need to know about the management and operations, not just what you can read in the media about an organization. The papers are kept private, and you can change the name if you must. If you do change the name, please let us know that the name has been changed.

The deliverable can be in any form, just make sure to exercise creativity in whichever form you use and make sure to cover all the required elements.

Some minimum elements are:

1. Organization Selected. Describe the organization that you use as the subject for your project. Explain why you selected the organization. If the organization is large you are free to focus on a department, division, practice or product.

2. Application of Course Concepts. In your analysis of the organization be sure to identify and apply course concepts and principles. Be specific and clear in the linkages.

3. Suggestions and Lessons. Make specific suggestions for improvement based upon the lessons learned. If there are no clear suggestions for improvement, suggest how what this organization does can be transferred to other organizations.
