module 2 SLP
The TUI session long project is not a term paper due at the end of the course. Rather, the SLP acts as a vehicle to give the topics of each module a personal, concrete expression. These modular session long project assignments are due at the end of each module.
I want you to pick an organization to examine throughout the rest of the course. It may or may not be the organization that you work for.
Assignment: For this first SLP I want to know about the structure of this organization and its supply chain.
Assignment Expectations: In 2-3 pages tell me about the organization, make sure you cover following areas:
1) The name of the organization
2) Its primary business
3) Government organization or nongovernmental organization
4) For profit or nonprofit
5) The management structure
6) Supply chain structure
7) Why you chose this organization
The paper should have a cover sheet and a references page, these do not count in the paper page count.
