Commnication Strategies Essay

n this assignment, you will integrate your answers from Learning Activities 3 and 5 into an essay. Compose an essay in which you describe the strategies you will employ when responding to the scenario from learning activity #3.
• Communicator Strategy – your communicator strategy needs to include general, action, and communication objectives.
• Audience Strategy – your audience strategy needs to reflect consideration of those who will be listening to your presentation.
• Message Strategy – correctly define your message strategy as “direct” or “indirect” and present your reasons for this choice.
• Channel Choice – correctly and thoroughly explain your channel choice.
• Culture Strategy – address all issues which may stem from the diversity present in your audience and explain how you will adjust your message to meet the needs of your audience.
Scenario: You are the marketing manager for Southeastern BioTech Corporation in Sioux Falls, SD. You have received a claim message from Mr. Jeffery Smith, Red River Country Club manager in Brookings, SD. Your company supplied a truckload of grass seed for the Red River Country Club golf course. However, the grass seed sacks were mixed incorrectly. Hybrid seeds for a colder climate were mixed with hybrid seeds for a warmer climate. The effect is an irregular growth pattern on the fairways, tee boxes, and greens of the golf course. Your company made the mistake, so you will refund the money, which is $26,000.

Should the government be responsible for the unemployedPaper instructions:
While Bassham discusses the different modes of organizing an argumentative essay, I would like you to be pretty “bare bones” about this. State your thesis early and directly. The old “Tell-em what you’re going to say, say it, and then tell-em you said it” approach pretty well describes what I would like you to do in this paper.

Business
Module 1 SLP
Choose an organization to which you have complete access or one about which much has been written. The best reports will be able to draw on business or popular press articles, annual reports or other information produced in-house, published or personal interviews with CEO's and other managers, newspaper articles, etc. If you are in the military and are planning to retire to the private sector, I encourage you to choose a private-sector organization – this will give your project more value when transitioning into a new field.
•List three (3) sources that will give you information about your organization's inputs, outputs, and transformation processes. Write them up as specified above and use the information to support your case analysis.
2. For each module, you will write at least ONE page for each source you use, double-spaced. Make a separate entry for each source.
3. Entries should summarize major themes, provide definitions/descriptions of major terms and concepts, and note any critical “learning points.”
4. Entries should be stated in your own words. Do not copy sections of text or abstracts, or copy tables and charts.
•Format your references in the bibliography using APA
Module 1 Case
In each module you will analyze an organization from a systems perspective. In Module 1 we will draw on open systems theory; subsequent modules will examine various aspects of the 7-S model. In Module 5, you will combine and integrate all you have written before into a final project paper.
Each module's Case Assignment is predicated on your work in that respective SLP, so be sure to complete the SLP before you attempt the case.
Steps to complete this assignment:
1. Choose an organization to which you have complete access or one about which much has been written. The best reports will be able to draw on business or popular press articles, annual reports or other information produced in-house, published or personal interviews with CEO's and other managers, newspaper articles, etc. If you are in the military and are planning to retire to the private sector, I encourage you to choose a private-sector organization – this will give your project more value when transitioning into a new field.
2. Write a 3- to 4-page paper describing the organization from an open systems perspective. The superior paper will also draw on the Nadler/Tushman Congruence Framework. Do not attempt to analyze the organization from the 7-S Framework – that will come later.
