TIPS:  • I expect that your paper will make a number of references to class readings and discussions. While you do not need to footnote, you should cite the reading by putting the author’s name and the date of the publication in parentheses following the reference. Where quotes are used directly, put the page number the quote appears on. A list of all readings you referenced in the paper should appear at the end of the paper.   • Use of supplemental material to support the paper: Please include graphs, process flow diagrams, organizations charts, survey results, etc. that help tell the story more vividly.  • Use supporting data.  If you make an assertion such as “Morale at my company was at an all-time low,” on what do you base this? If you suggest, “This project has had an enormous impact on customer satisfaction,” how do you know this to be true? While it is acceptable to occasionally insert some subjectivity into the analysis – be clear to identify what is subjective opinion and what is based on more objective data sources.
