About Your Signature Assignment
This signature assignment is designed to align with specific program student learning outcome(s) in your program. Program Student Learning Outcomes are broad statements that describe what students should know and be able to do upon completion of their degree. The signature assignments may be graded with an automated rubric that allows the University to collect data that can be aggregated across a location or college/school and used for program improvements.
Purpose of Assignment
The purpose of this assignment is for students to demonstrate mastery of operations management concepts and tools.
Develop a 700- to 1,050-word memo to a prospective employer outlining your credentials, including: taking this class, all of the projects you have done for this class individually and with your team, and their impact on the businesses you have engaged with so a senior manager reading it would want to hire you as either an operations consultant or permanent employee.
Summarize the business case for each project.
Outline what you specifically accomplished, assuming these projects were implemented, and their estimated impacts on the business.
Utilize the learnings from Week 6 to highlight your skills in global sourcing, procurement, and outsourcing which can also be of benefit to your target firm.
Format your assignment as if you would be giving a presentation to senior management.
The attached document is what is expected for the assignment. Now, the directions talk about group assignments we didn’t have any official ones but we did have an in class group task. This is hard for me since my background is Law Enforcement. I am currently a Detective for a Department of Defense Police Department. So, for me thinking outside of the box for what the assignment asks for is difficult. I do have a lot of Managerial experience and trainer experience as well. I have completed several advance Investigative courses as well as leadership courses. Just so you can see I have also attached the group task my group did which was a company that makes high end men’s shoes. I chose to get an MBA because when it is time to put the gun away I want to be able to do something that won’t be as physically tasking.
