ASSIGNMENT 1

You have been appointed by your manager to be team leader for an important new project. The team involves people from the following countries:
China
Germany
India
Italy
United States

Your first assignment is to come up with a communication plan.

You decide that given the time differences, the team should use email as its primary means of communication. But you know that when people write using email, there can be misunderstandings due to tone, style, and levels of directness.
These issues might be amplified by the differences in cultures between team members.

Research the different cultures on the internet and read about email communication in your textbook.

Then write an email to the team outlining guidelines for communication for this project.

Remember that the email you send needs to reflect the guidelines you are proposing.

This email must be at least one page and to be submitted in the link below. Do very careful research and the tone of the email must be all-inclusive and take into account the different cultures.

ASSIGNMENT 2

Summary-response reports are designed to help you practice gathering information from multiple sources on a given topic. After having a holistic understanding of the issue, synthesize  your findings in a 300-400 word report. The first section summarizes the issue researched, and the second section provides your response to it (e.g., reaction, analysis, or opinion). You are required to garner information from a minimum of 3 sources. When writing, practice being concise and to the point.

The topics for your first report are economically oriented. You may choose 1 of the following:

1.Overeducated & underpaid: The plight of today’s graduates
2.Wage inequality among men and women
3.The impact of big business on small towns
