Paper The paper is an examination of a public organization of your choice through the frameworks and theories presented in seminar. Examples of possible organizations include any government agency or department (Homeland Security, FBI, FEMA, CDC, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, VA), non-governmental organizations (Doctors without Borders), non-profits (national ones are probably better than local ones, Amnesty International, Children’s Defense Fund, NAACP), etc. The idea is to take concepts that we review in class (for example, rational organizations, grants in aid, hiring practices etc.) and apply it to interpreting and understanding the role of your chosen organization. I strongly suggest choosing a large public organization that has to deal with numerous organizational and bureaucratic issues. In addition to using your course books and articles from class, you are encouraged to seek out additional scholarly articles related to the concepts you are exploring – for example, if you are examining the role of culture in your organizations, you might want to find academic articles or books related to culture and how it impacts/affects organizations. Technical Requirements: 10 pages in length. Cover pages and reference pages do not count towards the 10 page total. 12pt or smaller font.
