Question

Overview;Back to Top;This project consists of creating a Global Business Plan using the guidelines document linked below. The plan will be developed in groups of three to five students defined by your instructor (groups will be set up as soon as possible in Week 1). Each group will select a country to research and establish the viability of that country for global expansion. Each group will discuss (post) in their respective Group Discussion area which country they plan to research and why they chose that country from the list of options provided by the instructor via an announcement. One team member (selected by the group) will post their country selection and why it was chosen to the Group's Doc Sharing area by the end of Week 1 (via a Word document). Note that ONLY the Week 1 deliverable is submitted in this fashion.;Important Note;Access your Group Doc Sharing area by clicking on the Doc Sharing tab at the top of the course, and then use the pull down menu to select your team's Doc Sharing area and hit Go. Only YOUR team will have access to this area, but be certain when you are loading documents for each other that you select "Share file with entire class" during the upload, because in the Group Doc Sharing area, this actually means share with your entire team.If you mark it "share file with instructor only," no one but the person loading it and I will be able to see it!;Each group will develop their plan based on 16 modules established to complete this business plan. Modules can be found in the Doc Sharing section of the class (use the Select View pull down menu to get to the modules). From there, you can download the information and samples. There are 16 modules, each with specific questions to help guide you in the research. Additionally, there are web links to assist in locating research information. Your research paper will follow these modules. You should expect to write about a page for each module. Some modules will need to be longer and some perhaps shy of a full page depending on the country you chose to research. Note the criticality of proper APA citation. See the Citation Help information at the bottom of this page.;A preliminary draft of your team's plan is due by Week 4 and is worth 50 points. The final plan will be due by Week 7 and is worth 150 points. The preliminary draft should be uploaded to each team member's respective Dropbox in Week 4, and the final version of your plan should be uploaded to each team member's respective Dropbox in Week 7. Each team member MUST submit the same version of these documents to their respective Dropboxes.;Use your Group Discussion area each week to work on your team's plan. Use of the Group Discussion area is the required communication medium for the teams so your instructor can monitor the team's activities and participation.;Global Business Plan Guidelines;Week 1;Back to Top;Global Business Plan topic selection: Each group will discuss (post) in their respective Group Discussion area which country they plan to research and why they chose that country from the list of options provided by the instructor via an announcement.

All of these factors can impact your grade, so do your best to communicate, interact, and conduct yourself professionally at all times.
