Assignment 2.2 Justification Report – Part 2 In Part 1 of y

Assignment 2.2: Justification Report – Part 2 In Part 1 of your Justification Report assignment, you built up the following sections: Problem Statement, Overview of Alternatives, Criteria, and Methods. In Part 2, you will revise Part 1 based on your instructor’s suggestions and add to it the following sections: Evaluation of Alternatives, Findings and Analysis, and References. Use the basic outline below to draft your paper. Organize your responses to each question under the following section headings: Evaluation of Alternatives (for Questions 1-3)Findings and Analysis (for Questions 4-5)References (for Question 6)Using the provided template, write Part 2 of a single-spaced report in which you: Includeand revise the sections from Assignment 2.1 (Problem Statement,Overview of Alternatives, Criteria, and Methods) per instructorsuggestions.Research the two (2) alternatives (i.e. possiblesolutions) that you’ve identified in your Part 1 Evaluation ofAlternatives section. Record bibliographic information during research. Example:You might research other organizations that have attempted similarsolutions to the problem you have identified and explore the results ofthose experiments. Use what you discover in your research to evaluate each alternative by each of your five (5) criteria. Example:If your research revealed that four (4) companies similar to yoursincreased productivity after allowing their workers to telework fromhome three days per week, you might conclude that one of your suggestedalternatives – in this case, the option to telework from home three daysper week – satisfies one of your criterion of “Productivity” as ahigh-potential solution to a problem you’ve identified (of decreasedworker morale and productivity at Doe’s Electronics). However,additional research might frustrate a recommendation of this alternativeif it is found to fall short of other criteria while a secondalternative fares better. For instance, a telework alternative might befound to be too costly to implement; too frustrating for consumers whoprefer daily, in-person customer service; or too divergent from thecompany’s brand, “Always there for you!” Organizethe assignment by your criteria. Explain in narrative form how each ofyour two (2) alternatives stacks up against your first criterion. Next,explain how each alternative stacks up against your second criterion,etc. Example: An abbreviated outline of what this longer section might look like based on the above example is below (Note:Only the first two [2] of five [5] required criteria are included togive you a feel for the structure). Your researched findings,represented as circled bullets below, should be explained in two to five(2-5) sentences. Include in-text citations and follow up withReferences in APA style): Evaluation of Alternatives Productivity Alternative A: Telework from home three (3) days per week {narrate findings based on research article 1 here} Alternative B: Offer two (2) extra Floating Holidays to each employee per year {narrate findings based on research article 2 here} Cost Alternative A: Telework from home three (3) days per week {narrate findings based on research article 1 here} Alternative B: Offer two extra Floating Holidays to each employee per year {narrate findings based on research article 2 here} Briefly summarize in narrative form the major discoveries that emerged from the Evaluation of Alternatives section.Include a chart like the ones below to illustrate at a glance: Figure 1: Alternatives Analyzed by Criteria Criteria Telework Option Floating Holiday Option Productivity Very high Negligible increase Cost Very high Moderate Company Image Increased Negligible increase Worker Morale Increased Negligible increase Practicality Moderate Low TOTAL Feasibility* of Alternatives based on Criteria? Moderate to High Low to Moderate *Feasability = Capability of an alternative being carried out with successIncludean APA style (6th edition) References page that documents the two (2)sources (minimum) that you used and cited in-text in your Evaluation ofAlternatives section.
