What is intellectual property?

What is intellectual property?

After working through the theoretical foundations Powerpoint (click here), select only one of the theories and discuss its usefulness in the context of managing organizations. Use online peer-reviewed journal research (case study research is best) to inform your writing, and to advance the theoretical discussion beyond what you encountered in the PowerPoint. You may select a theory that you will eventually use elsewhere in the course.

What is the purpose of a forum?

Think of the forum as a classroom experience where you “meet” with your instructor and peers to discuss the weekly topic in terms of the readings, assignments and resources that have been assigned.  The desired outcome is that you are able to (1) collaborate with peers and the instructor, (2) demonstrate your understanding of the material, and (3) participate as a member of an online community.

What are the responsibilities of the instructor?

The instructor’s goal is to create an engaging and safe environment for students to learn.  In addition, instructors should pose questions promoting deeper thought as well as encourage students to interact with their peers in the classroom.  There should be an active instructor presence throughout the week.

What are the responsibilities of the student?

You are required to make a 250 word initial posting.

If you met the above-mentioned requirements, you will be graded at the proficient level.  However, if your desire is to be graded at the exemplary level, please provide more than what is required.  To receive 100% as a grade (the exemplary level) for the weekly forums, you should ensure that your responses meet the following criterion:

Critical Analysis – Discussion postings display an excellent understanding of the required readings and underlying concepts including correct use of terminology. Postings are made in time for others to read and respond as well as deliver information that is full of thought, insight, and analysis. The information presented makes connection to previous or current content or to real-life situations, and must contain rich and fully developed new ideas, connections, or applications. (It is important that you integrate the weekly readings in your response. One way to do that is to make position statements, then discuss supporting evidence (i.e. research and/or personal experience).
Participation as a Member of the Learning Community – Discussion postings actively stimulate and sustain further discussion by building on peers’ responses including building a focused argument around a specific issue or asking a new related question or making an oppositional statement supported by personal experience or related research. (Please plan your time wisely.  Your responses should encourage your peers to respond to your postings and build the foundation for the class to review and discuss your initial posting

Professional Communication and Etiquette – Written interactions in the Forum show respect and sensitivity to peers’ background and beliefs (Regardless of the position you are taking, please ensure that your participation comments are respectful to your peers’ background and beliefs).

Writing Skills – Written responses are free of grammatical, spelling or punctuation errors.  The style of writing facilitates communication. (Make sure your work is free of errors.  If there are any errors as outlined above, you will not receive 100% for the forum). 

Please see the Forum Rubric located in the “Resources” section of the classroom.

Part 2- APA Format (Due Thursday)

Assignment Instructions

GOAL: Create the initial element of your Business Model Generation—your business Model Canvas.

Introduction: Using the Osterwalder and Pigneur Business Model Canvas as a resource (coupled with the other resources of the course), create a business model canvas of the business organization where you work. Since every organization has unique features, do your best to work at the application of the various components of the building blocks of the canvas. Show as much detail as you can so that it is evident that you comprehend the general business model of your organization. There must be a demonstration of synthesis of the procedure on your part. You may need to interview some of the management team to verify the business model details of your organization. You may also benefit from conducting an Internet search of the Business Model Canvas to become comfortable with how it works. There are many other YouTube-type videos on the web that demonstrate the use of the canvas. You will also find several good sources in the Lessons area of the course under the Reading and Resources tab of weeks 1 and 2.

Instructions: Your submittal this week will be considered as a “draft” that should consist of:

1.  A Cover page that provides a general description of your organization/business:

Name of the organization (preferably your present organization/business)

Date of origination (or incorporation)

Location (as appropriate; some entities require discretion)

Brief overview of the purpose of the organization/business

Description of your relationship and role in the organization/business

Other details that enable fuller explanation (if applicable)

2. Business Model Canvas with Post-It notes (as seen in the examples). You have three options for the submission of your canvas:

· You may download and use the blank PowerPoint canvas with electronic Post-Its to create your canvas (click here), or

· You may create a Word.doc that lists the nine building blocks (clearly identify each one) and uses bulleted points in the same manner as Post-Its.

· Creation of your post-its via the following web-help site, and then submission of the resulting URL for the finished canvas. See (click on link) https://canvanizer.com/new/business-model-canvas

3. Create a memo (no particular format, but neatly presented) that describes what you learned about your organization/business as a result of creating the business model canvas.

UPLOAD your finished assignment into the Assignment page. You may consolidate the cover page and memo into one document if you use the PowerPoint method of the canvas. If you do all of the assignment as a Word.doc, then you may consolidate the entire assignment into one document; it is your call.

GRADING: The Powerpoint Rubric will be used to grade this assignment (and the professor will adjust the use of the rubric to apply to the options pertaining to the delivery of this assignment)
