Cover page (in APA format)
The introduction section of this paper is intended to provide the background information that is essential for the reader to understand the nature and scope of the problem you have selected. The introduction helps the reader better understand the focus of your research paper.
For this section, you want to make sure it is clear to the reader the central issue being examined, as well as the 2 components (i.e. organizational culture, leadership, ethics) that impact your chosen issue. Additionally, it should be clear to the reader where the issue is taking place (i.e. in what organization). Maximum: 3 paragraphs.
The purpose statement should be clear, definitive, unambiguous, and readily understood by anyone who reads it. The purpose statement should include your central issue and the 2 components that are impacting the issue (i.e. culture, leadership, ethics).
Additionally, you also want to note for the reader that you will be examining recommendations as well. Minimum: 2 to 3 sentences. Maximum: 1 paragraph.
In the analysis section, you need to critically analyze your chosen issue as it is impacted by two, of the three components (i.e. organizational culture, leadership, ethics).
You must address the below questions (depending on which 2 components you chose) when writing your analysis:
- Organizational Culture: How is your chosen issue negatively impacted by the workplace culture? What behaviors in the workplace culture exacerbate your issue?
- Leadership: How do you think leadership negatively impacts your chosen issue? What leadership style or characteristics further contribute to perpetuating your issue?
- Ethics: How does the ethical climate of the organization negatively contribute to this issue? What unethical behaviors further perpetuate the issue?
You must incorporate theories/concepts from other resources to help validate your statements and further support your examples. Examples should be specific and not vague. Remember, do not focus on what “should” occur in this section, you want to focus on establishing your issue, and why it is occurring. Minimum: 4 pages. Maximum: 5 pages.
In this section, you will discuss recommendations that could potentially decrease your central issue, as it relates to the 2 components you chose (i.e. culture, leadership, ethical climate). It is not enough to just merely list your recommendations; your recommendations must tie back to specific examples that you examined in the analysis section. Maximum: one page in length.
The conclusion must be succinct and concise and wrap up the central theme (s) of the paper. Maximum: 2 paragraphs in length.
