Attendance strongly encouraged

  • Explain why stakeholder expectations are increasingly important to organizations and their managers.

  • Form groups! Or, we can do it during class time and that's okay

  • Recall the viral Tik Tok challenge:
    "You say ... Okay, prove it."
    How is this like library research?

  • Systematic Literature Review is about justifying a new plan for organization. It could be to justify a new business model, a new product line, or new market segment. This is beyond market research, it's about understanding a very specific topic across both business and society.
  • Each group must produce a systematic literature review report of a minimum 25 peer-reviewed articles
    At least 8 articles must have a Canadian-focus or content
    At least 5 articles must be from the Directory of Open Access Journalshttps://doaj.org/ 
    At least 5 articles must be from the Financial Times list of Top 50 Journals https://libguides.mcmaster.ca/ft-top50 
    Please note that this libguide is from McMaster Univ Library and so these links won't work for you as a CapU student.

  • Making a Work Plan is about making sure you've planned enough time to get the work done!
    Yet, this isn't a contract like one would typically do for a group project. You can choose to expel any group members before the Soft report is due. Thus, this is not about accountability. Instead, this is about gaining clarity between everyone on a team. Then, communicating to your supervisor and the client what your plans will be to accomplish the work in a timely fashion.
  • Eisenhower Matrix = Urgent vs Important
