PART I. Introduction and Environmental Analysis (35 points; 5 pages min. – 8 pages max.) 

It is done by yourself. I will attach the paper you did for me, you might use it in PART II.

PART II. Company Analysis and Recommendations (65 points; 12 pages max.) 

Part 2 is a separate and distinct paper from Part 1.  While you may use some of the information from your original analysis and writing, this section seeks a different and distinct evaluation of the organization.  You must determine what that is and present the information as depicted below.  Do not use bullets.  This paper gives you up to 12 pages to write a solid and significant argument that is graduate level critical analysis.  Do not write as you speak.  There is a formality to such papers and it is expected that you utilize presentation skills to make your arguments here.  The terms EVALUATE, DEVELOP and ANALYZE are key indicators of the level of critical thinking necessary to maximize grading for this assignment.
