Places to Get a Good Start

If you are not familiar with your topic it is good to find a quick introduction to it that can provide a broad outline, definitions, correct spellings, related subject terms to broaden or narrow your research, and a list of suggested readings. Here are some suggestions:

General encyclopedias - Britannica Online, Wikipedia

Subject dictionaries and encyclopedias; i.e. - Dictionary of Cancer, Encyclopedia of Global Warming, The Routledge Companion to Strategic Human Resource Management, etc. - available through OneSearch.

Note: Some online open-access encyclopedias (like Wikipedia) can be edited by the public and may not contain credible information. Check with your instructor first regarding whether you should use and cite these types of sources in your project or paper.

Management Topics

Innovator Presentation

Each assigned group will give One (1) creative 20 – 25 minute oral presentation on a twentieth century management innovator to the class.  The team will be responsible to field a question and answer period following the presentation.  The presentation should focus on the management innovators contribution to management theory and practice.  Who inspired the management innovator’s thought and work?  Where do we still see evidence of the work of the management innovator?  The presentation should be professional in nature complete with visual aids.  Each team will be required to turn in all information used in your presentation It should also be highly creative yet professional.

This is a class in Management.  As such, the group must Plan, Organize, Lead, and Control the presentation.  Plan the presentation to be informative, address the questions asked, and stay within the time window allotted.  (Time Limit:  Do not be short.  Do not go over.  Less than 10 minutes will receive no credit).  Organize the presentation in a logical order.  Lead the classroom discussion regarding the presentation.  Be prepared to address questions.  Ask questions of the audience if none are asked of your group.  Lastly, control the presentation.  Again, stay within the parameters set.
