For this assignment, you will write a case study analysis that focuses on the communication strategy of an organization of your choice.
In this assignment, you will need to a) summarize the communication strategy of your chosen organization, b) analyze the communication strategy of your chosen organization, and c) explain how you would integrate the communication strategy into the current organization where you work or into a former organization where you have worked.
A. Summarize the Communication Strategy
Locate an article that discusses the communication strategies used by your chosen organization. After reading your chosen article, you may find the exercise below to be helpful in developing a summary paragraph. Identify the author(s) of your chosen article, and complete the following exercise:
[Insert author’s name here] discusses how innovative communication processes have helped [insert name of the organization here] resolve [insert issue here].
The top reason [insert author’s name here] holds that position is __________.
A second reason [insert author’s name here] holds that position is __________.
A third reason [insert author’s name here] holds that position is __________.
After filling in the blanks, you should have a list of the positions and claims made by the authors about your chosen organization. Shape your notes into a summary paragraph. (Do not simply include the list that you completed in the exercise above.)
Remember that the summary paragraph is where you will present information from the source. You will provide your analysis and interpretation in the following section of the paper.
B. Analyze the Communication Strategy
Be sure to include how the communication strategy impacts the organization on multiple levels. Feel free to use the four levels of sales, services, value chain, and continuous improvement as a model, which was discussed in the case study on the Dell Computer Corporation in the Unit VI Lesson. (Note: Your categories may be different.)
In the analysis portion of the assignment, discuss any problems (or potential problems) with the communications in your chosen organization, and provide potential solutions based on your research. Include ways that effective management could help to provide a solution.
C. Explain Integration Techniques
Finally, explain how this communication strategy could be integrated into your current or former workplace.
You will need to reference at least two academic sources.
Use the standard five-paragraph format (introduction/body/conclusion). APA format should be used. The assignment should be a minimum of three pages in length. Content, organization, and grammar/mechanics will be evaluated.

Keep in mind that while some case study assignments will look like this, not all of them will. In those circumstances, pay particular attention to the questions that your assignment is asking you to answer or the issues it wants you to address: These will become your level headings. This is the assignment that this sample paper is responding to: Use the resource below: Clements, J. (2015). How science fiction helps us reimagine our moral relations with animals. Journal of Animal Ethics, 5 (2) 181. Then, write a case study that answers the following questions: -What types of characters are defined as “animal” in literature? -What real -world societal problems do such characters address? APA 7 th edition allows for a variety of different font choices for papers. Options include Times New Roman (size 12), Calibri (size 11), Arial (size 11), Lucida Sans Unicode (size 10), and Georgia (size 11). This example paper is written in Times New Roman, size 12. The same font and font size should be used throughout the entire paper. 2 Animals as Equals in Science Fiction In her article “How Science Fiction Helps Us Reimagine Our Moral Relations with Animals,” Jennifer Clements (2015) details several science fiction writers who bring animals and animalistic characters to the forefront of their works. While it is an oft -igno red genre, science fiction tends to be filled with satires and metaphors that act as calls to action for the more attentive reader. Of these metaphors, one of the most popular is the animalistic character. The trope of the animal appears in such classics a s Frankenstein, The Island of Doctor Moreau , and Planet of the Apes (Clements, 2015). These novels all utilize their respective animal characters to cast a new light on some aspect of humanity. Science fiction very rarely focuses on true animals. More oft en, these animals are some sort of hybrid between the n atural creature and man, giving them the higher thinking necessary to comment upon a multitude of societal issues, especially those of discrimination and segregation. The Animal as a Character One of the most legendary stories not only of the genre, but of literature as a whole, i s Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein: Or the Modern Prometheus . While many of the adaptations of Frankenstein have badly skewed the original store, the central theme of the creature as an innocent and largely peaceful being has, for the most part, endured. This is true for the creature’s many counterparts in the genre; they are feared, physically abused, or shunned for either their appearance or origins, and yet, they are kind, thoughtful, and intelligent. Essentially, the animalistic character is meant to repres ent the best of what humanity could be. This is particularly ironic since, in an overwhelming majority of such tales, humans created these creatures through their own scientific prowess (Clements, 2015). These origin stories cause a dilemma for readers: Si ding with the animal character feels like a betrayal to mankind, but The thesis acknowledges both of the issues prompted in the assignment, and provides brief answers to them. Notice that both of the body paragraphs’ level headings respond to questions from the prompt. Refer back to the assignment: What type of creatures are referred to as “animal” in literature? Since this passage answers that question, it receives a heading. These headings can either be a reworded version of your assignment’s original question , like this one, or indicate your response to the question or issue. When paraphrasing a key point in more than one sentence within a paragraph, cite the source in the first sentence in which it is relevant and do not repeat the citation within that paragraph as long as the source remains clear and unchanged. The full title of the paper is repeated here, bolded and centered. 3 challenges the reader to consider the viewpoints of those who are fundament ally different from themselves. The Animal as a Representative of Societal Problems In Frankenstein, the creature acts as an example of “the moral wrongs that newly expanding scientific frontiers made possible” (Clements, 2015, para.2); while this topic remain s especially relevant with the advent of artificial intelligence on the horizon, it is not necessarily at the forefront of human thought in the twenty -first century. For much of the lesser known writer Cordwainer Smith’s body of work, however, the issues a t hand are much more similar to those of modern America. Smith centers many of his short stories on the conflicts between the Underpeople (an animal -derived human) and the True Men, who, true to genre stereotypes, created the Underpeople in their own image . The conflicts between the Underpeople and the True Men are blatant analogies for racism and religious persecution, and are especiall y effective in their execution . Smith’s stories (and those of similar writers) encourage “continual… negotiation (not denial) of difference” (Clements, 2015, para.9). Conclusion Animal characters serve to represent n ot what humanity is, but what it has the potential to become. The origin of these characters is typically man, representing the fact that hate and evil are uniquely human attributes. These problems, originating with man, must end with man to create a more enlightened and caring being. The animal is used as a representative of these problems because of their relative goodness compared to humans; they have no wars and no hatred with which they are born. The lessons illustrated by these skilled authors, center ing upon these idealistic beings, are critically important in learning to overcome such major issues as racism and homophobia, uniquely caused and perpetuated by humanity alone. This level heading answers this question: What real -world societal problems do such characters address? Conclusions are critical in all academic papers. This is where you will tie together all of your thoughts and main points made about your subheadings. 4 References Clements, J. (2015).
