Assignment 1

Assignment 1: Case Study — Walmart External Environment Analysis Due Week 4, Day 7 (Weight: 15%)

Walmart's latest woes - sales dwindling, market share eroding — are featured heavily in the media today, and even in the Wall Street Journal. But is disaster really looming on the horizon for the low-cost giant? Or do the issues simply present an opportunity for big success?

Assess Walmart's external environment using three or more media sources to identify factors that are impacting Walmart's business model and take a stance on whether these factors signal imminent doom or new growth opportunities (if approached correctly).

 

Write a 3-6 page Business Brief for the Walmart Executive team on your findings.

1.       Identify and concisely describe four external factors impacting Walmart.

• Describe each of the four factors. Is each a positive or negative for Walmart? Explain.

 • What are the "symptoms" of each factor? (What is likely happening as a result of a factor?)

• How does each factor correlate to Porter's Five Forces or the Blue Ocean models? Explain.

2. Rank the factors in order from least to greatest potential impact and briefly explain your rationale.

 3. Take a stand — Persuasively assert what these factors imply for the future of Walmart.

• Consider how the factors potentially influence the organization's capabilities, behavior, and strategic options.

 4. Support your recommendations, assertions, and facts with in-text citations, appendixes, and references.

Recommended format and organization for the Business Brief. Business briefs are often used to convince and inform clearly and concisely in the business environment. For this assignment, your business brief should state its purpose, create awareness, and provide a persuasive informed assertion based on research and conceptual understandings. 1. Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, your name, professor's name, and the course title and date. (The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required page length.) 2. Single-spaced, professional font (Times New Roman or Ariel), 10-12 font size 3. Headings used to identify main topics and subtopics 4. Paragraphs separated by a single space

Request Letter
Write a letter requesting a few booklets that explain how college students can apply for
scholarships to study abroad. Address the letter to Nancy Reibold, the executive director of the
Global Initiative Center at 1012 Third Avenue, New York, NY 10021. You learned about this booklet
when you were surfing the Web and came upon the Global Initiative Center Web site.

Response Letter
Assume that you are Nancy Reibold, and you received the request for the booklet. You are out of
copies at the moment, however, because you have received more requests than anticipated. You
expect to receive more copies within two weeks. Write a response to the inquiry, explaining these
circumstances. Tell the reader that you will send the booklet, titled, “Study Abroad,” as soon as
you can—and offer the alternative of downloading a document that you will make available at your
Web site.

Complaint Letter

You are Nancy Reibold’s assistant at the Global Initiative Center, and both you and Nancy are
angry. You have just received 10,000 copies of the booklet from the Jones Printing Company,
105 East Summit Street, New Brunswick, NJ 08910. When you opened the carton, you discovered
each booklet is missing several pages. This printing is the second one to contain a mistake made
by Jones Printing, and the shipment is late as well, even though Robert Mason, the sales
representative, had promised that you would have no problems this time. Nancy Reibold wants to
“get this problem corrected immediately.” Write a complaint letter to Robert Mason for Ms. Reibold
to sign.

Adjustment Letter
Assume that you are Robert Mason. You have received the complaint letter about the printing
mistake. After checking, you discover that the booklets sent to the Global Initiative Center had
been subcontracted to another printing firm (ILM Printing Company) because of the backlog at
Jones. You know that Jones Printing will not be billed for the booklets if you return them to
ILM Printing within five working days. You decide that you must write an adjustment letter to
Ms. Reibold quickly, asking her to return the booklets.


Persuasive Memo
Assume that you are Robert Mason. Send a convincing, detailed memo to J. R. Jones, your boss
and president of Jones Printing, recommending that ILM Printing Company not be used for future
subcontracting work. Assume that Mr. Jones is reluctant to change subcontractors because of
personal ties to ILM Printing and the significant discount that it gives to Jones, so you will need to
be persuasive.

Grading Criteria

Formatting will count on this assignment. You may use a letterhead template, but make sure that
you edit it appropriately so all your design elements make sense for your rhetorical situation.

The rubric, including formatting standards, is listed in the syllabus. Your letters should include all
official parts (date, inside address, salutation, body, complimentary closing, signature, writer’s
signature block, end notations), and your memo should be formatted as a standard print memo. In
order to earn the highest possible grade, you should also create a letterhead to match the
scenario/organization for which you are writing. Avoid affectation in all your deliverables.

In addition to the correspondence deliverables, I want you to compose an audience and purpose
statement for each one. Write me a memo that lists these statements.
Put all four letters and memo into one PDF file.

 Typed. Type and present all out-of-class assignments on good-quality paper. Handwritten memos, letters, and reports are not acceptable in a professional or academic setting. Clean. Appearance and format will count toward your grade.

The proper use of headers, white space, margins, and other visual devices all contribute to readability and accessibility of information, and skillfully handling them is extremely important. Error-free.

Simple mechanical and grammatical accuracy is necessary. Nothing destroys an author’s credibility faster than spelling or grammatical errors. Audience-appropriate. Readability, style, and tone chosen for clarity of expression and suitable to the target audience will play a significant role in determining the grade on assignments.

 

Purposeful and well supported. Whether you set out to explain, analyze, or persuade, your work should have a clear purpose that is supported by appropriate facts and details. Visuals should be incorporated where useful, and research should be properly documented.

The following case study for Assignment 2:

Case 9.1: Unprofessional Conduct?
Located on page 342 of your textbook

  1. Do you believe the Board of Education violated her right to privacy? Were they justified in firing her? Explain two to three (2-3) major reasons why or why not.
  2. Was Pettit’s behavior unprofessional or immoral? Do you believe she was unfit to teach? Provide a rationale for your position.
  3. If teachers have good performance inside the classroom, should they also be held to a higher moral standard outside the classroom? Explain why or why not. 
  4. Analyze five (5) behaviors you believe would show unprofessional or immoral conduct for a teacher.

CASE 9.1

Unprofessional Conduct?

TEACHING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN with intellectual disabilities requires skill, patience, and devotion, and those who undertake this task are among the unsung heroes of our society. Their difficult and challenging work rarely brings the prestige or financial rewards it deserves. Mrs. Pettit was one of those dedicated teachers. Licensed to teach in California, she had been working with mentally challenged children for over thirteen years when her career came to an abrupt end. Throughout that career, her competence was never questioned, and the evaluations of her school principal were always positive.

Teaching was not Pettit’s only interest, however. She and her husband viewed with favor various “nonconventional sexual lifestyles,” including “wife swapping.” Because so-called sexual liberation was a hot topic at the time, the Pettits were invited to discuss their ideas on two local television shows. Although they wore disguises, at least one fellow teacher recognized them and discussed Mrs. Pettit’s views with colleagues. A year later Pettit, then forty-eight years old, and her husband joined “The Swingers,” a private club in Los Angeles that sponsored parties intended to promote diverse sexual activities among its members. An undercover police officer, Sergeant Berk, visited one of those parties at a private residence. Amid a welter of sexual activity, he observed Mrs. Pettit perform fellatio on three different men in a one-hour period.

Pettit was arrested and charged with oral copulation, which at the time contravened the California Penal Code (although now it does only if one of the parties is under eighteen). After a plea bargain was arranged, she pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor of outraging public decency and paid a fine. The school district renewed her teaching contract the next academic year, but two years later, disciplinary proceedings were initiated against her. The State Board of Education found no reason to complain about her services as a teacher, and it conceded that she was unlikely to repeat her sexual misconduct. But the Board revoked her elementary school life diploma—that is, her license to teach—on the ground that by engaging in immoral and unprofessional conduct at the party, she had demonstrated that she was unfit to teach.

Pettit fought the loss of her license all the way to the California Supreme Court, which upheld the decision of the Board of Education.116 In an earlier case, the court had reversed the firing of a public school teacher for unspecified homosexual conduct, concluding that a teacher’s actions could not constitute “immoral or unprofessional conduct” or “moral turpitude” unless there was clear evidence of unfitness to teach. But Pettit’s case was different, the court hastened to explain.

The conduct in the earlier case had not been criminal, oral copulation had not been involved, and the conduct had been private. Further, in that case the Board had acted with insufficient evidence of unfitness to teach; by contrast, three school administrators had testified that in their opinion, Pettit’s conduct proved her unfit to teach. These experts worried that she would inject her views of sexual morality into the classroom, and they doubted that she could act as a moral example to the children she taught. Yet teachers, the court reaffirmed, are supposed to serve as exemplars, and the Education Code makes it a statutory duty of teachers to “endeavor to impress upon the min

In a vigorous dissent, Justice Tobringer rejected the opinion of the majority, arguing that no evidence had established that Pettit was not fit to teach. The three experts didn’t consider her record; they couldn’t point to any past misconduct with students, nor did they suggest any reason to anticipate future problems. They simply assumed that the fact of her sexual acts at the “swingers” party itself demonstrated that she would be unable to set a proper example or to teach her pupils moral principles.

Such an attitude is unrealistic, Tobringer argued, when studies show that 75 to 80 percent of the women of Pettit’s educational level and age range engage in oral copulation. The majority opinion “is blind to the reality of sexual behavior” and unrealistically assumes that “teachers in their private lives should exemplify Victorian principles of sexual morality.” Pettit’s actions were private and could not have affected her teaching ability. Had there not been clandestine surveillance of the party, the whole issue would never have arisen.

DISCUSSION QUESTIONS

  1. In concerning itself with Pettit’s off-the-job conduct, did the Board of Education violate her right to privacy? Or was its concern with her lifestyle legitimate and employment related?
  2. Was Pettit’s behavior “unprofessional”? Was it “immoral”? Did it show a “lack of fitness” to teach? Explain how you understand the terms in quotation marks.
  3. Was the Board of Education justified in firing Pettit? Explain.
  4. Was the court’s verdict consistent with its earlier handling of the case of the homosexual teacher?
  5. If teachers perform competently in the classroom, should they also be required to be moral exemplars in their private lives? Are employees in other occupations expected to provide a moral example—either on or off the job?
  6. Which of the following, in your view, would show unprofessional conduct, immorality, or lack of fitness to teach: drunken driving, smoking marijuana, advocating the use of marijuana, forging a check, resisting arrest for disorderly conduct and assaulting a police officer, being discovered in a compromising position with a student, propositioning a student, cheating on income tax, calling attention to one’s openly homosexual lifestyle?
  7. Under what conditions do employers have a legitimate interest in their employees’ off-the-job conduct?
