Select an organization that operates internationally but which has had controversy or widely-recognized problems. For example, Wal-Mart has expanded into China only to find that its products were not wanted, while Shell Oil continues to battle allegations of benefiting from corrupt political bodies in foreign locations, and the United Nations has been criticized for its ineffectiveness in war-torn countries.
Your Portfolio Project will be a position paper (1800-2400 words) that includes an examination of the following:
- The management issues.
- A description of the theories that apply to the international management of the organization and the handling of the specific issues.
- A substantiated opinion regarding the organization’s management of the issues. In other words, has the organizational management been effective in its facilitation of the organization’s position in the global landscape? Why or why not?
- Given the future of international management, thoughts on how management can prepare to deal with or conclude the issues.
Your paper should follow CSU-Global APA guidelines and contain concepts from the reading materials. Your paper should also reflect your insight and analysis of both materials and external information to provide an original and thoughtful paper. Reference the Portfolio Rubric for grading details.
