MGMT 605: Week Two Paper
For this learning assignment, you will begin the process of research in ways that directly relate to the final paper.
This week you will write on your chosen topic from the list below using one scholarly article that you find in the APUS Library or another academic source, such as Google Scholar.
Leadership and the role of organizational culture
Styles of leadership within your organization
Ethics and leadership
Leadership, technology and the organization
Trends in leadership and how to adapt it in your organization
Other ideas? Contact your instructor
FYI: A scholarly article is simple an article that comes from an academic source, such as a business or psychology journal. It’s not the NYT, Washington Post, etc.
Note that you may access the APUS Online Library and get help with scholarly research from the school. The APUS Online Library has a great orientation video (click here) to help you get started. The APUS Online Library also provides a specific guide for how to research in the library (click here).
