Analyze the social or environmental activities of a selected company (either an established company or a startup). 2. The company covered in the paper must have a purpose to resolve a clear social/environmental problem. 3. Discuss: 1) what the key issues and concerns are in the company’s social/environmental activities; 2) how you would go about implementing improvements; 3) how you would measure their impact and success. 4. Use one or more frameworks taught in the course to do the analysis. 5. A group up to five members is allowed. 6. No more than 15 pages or 5,000 words and 3 exhibits, double-spacing. 7. Following session 6 (see detailed deadlines below), get approval for the mid-term paper plan from the instructor by submitting a brief description of (1) which company you plan to select, and (2) which social initiatives/projects in the company you like to focus on in your analysis. No more than 500 words. You can focus on one or two projects or a company’s social-value-creation strategy as a whole. You do not have to cover many activities. Focus on those you can collect most information about. 8. In week 8, you will present your analysis to the instructor and receive comments. Normally 10 min group presentation followed by 5-10 min comments. So, you might want to think about how to present your analysis and what comments you want to get when you prepare ppts and write the paper. The PPT is up to ten slides. 9. Send your brief plan and the mid-term paper via email to the instructor. Mid-Term Paper Suggestions: 1. The purpose of the mid-term paper is analyzing issues in a company’s social activities and making improvement suggestions. The paper is not about developing your own business plan. 2. Use the concepts, logics, and frameworks in the class to analyze your case. Avoid piling up company information while neglecting what this class can bring to understanding the case. 3. You do not have to cover many social/environmental activities that a company does. You can focus on the social initiative that you have most information about. The originality and groundedness of the analysis are what count in the paper. Peer Evaluation: 1. You need to complete a peer evaluation for the mid-term paper’s teamwork. 2. Use the eUreka system (https://eureka.ntu.edu.sg/webapp/) to complete peer evaluations. Check the file of “Completion of Peer Evaluation on eUreka” in the content section of NUTLearn for a guidance. 3. Please grade each member of your team including yourself.
