Topic: According to Forbes Alaska Airlines is ranked number one Airlines in the United States
The assignment is to make an organizational analysis using the concepts from the class, but you might be able to work in some of the variables that helped the stock go up. Analyze the organizational structure of Alaska Airlines and the impacts of that structure.
Describe Resources Dependency Theory and the three factors that determine the dependence of one organization on another. Apply these factors to hypothetical clothing manufacturers (NOT STORES). Think about how clothing manufacturers would get raw material, labor, distribution of its products, etc. You can use examples of several clothing manufacturers (again, not clothing stores) in your analysis, but keep the analysis general and comprehensive.
3 full pages, not including the title page and bibliography.
Avoid including personal perspectives in the assignment. This is just an objective analysis. As the assignment instructions say, avoid first person usage (we, us, etc.).
You don’t say the name of the organization anywhere, you just refer to “this organization.”
Make sure you include more sources to improve your chances of submitting “A” work. The minimum number of sources is just that – a minimum. More academic sources, used in your paper, will help your grade. Students might consider adding another source or two on dependency theory. While you don’t have to cite every source in your bibliography – that’s why it’s a bibliography, not a works cited page – you need to use sources that contribute to your paper with at least background information. More academic sources, if understood and used in your paper, mean a better foundation for your paper.
