Final Capstone Proposal – Individual

Activity Context

This assignment helps you develop the skills to master the following course competencies:

  • Analyze strategic issues to guide overall business decision making.
  • Integrate and apply core knowledge, skills, and attitudes to plan for resolution of key business challenges.
  • Communicate in a manner that is professional and consistent with expectations for members of the business professions.

Revisit the MBA6028 Course Alignment Map to review how all activities assist you in achieving the course competencies and overall program outcomes.

Activity Instructions

For this assignment, complete the Final Capstone Proposal as described in the MBA Capstone Project Guidelines document given in the resources. In essence, this is simply an updated version of your Unit 3 proposal, the Preliminary Capstone Proposal — Individual. Just fine-tune that proposal and turn it into a paper instead of a table, with an introduction, conclusion, subheadings, and such. This should be just 2–3 pages long and should set you up to begin work on the actual capstone project in your next course.

Appendix C of MBA Capstone Project Guidelines provides a proposal outline for you to follow. Appendix D is the scoring guide from MBA6900. It is included for you to review as you draft your proposal to ensure that your project will meet the requirements. Submit your proposal as a Word document to this assignment.

Note: Successful completion of an acceptable proposal will facilitate a smooth transition into your capstone course and help you make timely progress toward the completion of your degree and is required.

In fact, you must earn at least a 70 out of 100 on this proposal to pass this course. If you do not earn at least 70 on this assignment, your instructor will force your course grade to “F” and you will have to retake this course in order to prepare an acceptable capstone proposal.

Remember to use the feedback from your u04d2 “elevator speech” discussion to help with the introduction. A poorly focused scope that is too narrow or too broad is the primary reason that some learners do poorly on this on this final proposal. Thus, taking time on this assignment is paramount.

Be sure to contact your instructor with any questions or challenges you have about completing your proposal.

Note: Your instructor may also use the Writing Feedback Tool to provide feedback on your writing. In the tool, click the linked resources for helpful writing information.

    DEVELOPING AN OUTLINE
    An outline is like a grocery list. While shopping with a list you can organize and prioritize items—for example, you can buy everything you need in the frozen food section instead of wasting time picking things up piecemeal. Like a grocery list, an outline builds a framework a writer can use to guide her through a paper.
    Some skip outlines because they think outlines are busywork rather than part of the writing process – but the benefits of an outline far outweigh the time needed to make one. After all, an outline need not be “fancy” or terribly complex. The outline’s purpose is simply to help make organizational and structural sense of a paper before it begins. The following are a few ideas to consider as you develop an outline:
    When to Outline
    Many writers have different preferences for getting started with a new writing assignment. Some writers prefer to approach a topic via various prewriting strategies, such as freewriting, looping, listing, and clustering, while other writers prefer to begin with an outline of words, ideas, categories, or even full sentences to be considered as the initial main ideas or supporting points for the first draft.
    When writers are uncertain about how to approach an assignment or when they need to determine what ideas they do have for a topic, then prewriting strategies are usually a better choice than outlines. However, once the prewriting stage is complete, some writers forget or are unaware of the benefits to using an outline as a vital link or bridge between each stage of the writing process.
    Use an outline between each stage of the writing process – Prewriting, Drafting, and Revising – as it can help writers:
    • to inventory ideas and give boundary and form to the ideas discovered in prewriting
    • to determine the interrelationship between ideas as they develop
    • to inventory ideas and needs as they develop in multiple drafts
    • to organize ideas for logical structure and chronology
    • to verify connections between supporting points and the thesis
    • to verify connections between supporting points and evidence/examples
    • to verify opportunities for paragraph development (MEAL Plan), and
    • to verify audience needs and analysis
    This is the concept of the “working outline,” how an outline is updated to record changes between each stage of the writing process. Rather than conceiving of an outline merely as the final representation of the content and organization of a final

    DEVELOPING AN OUTLINE
    paper, writers need to be aware of how outlines can “work” throughout the writing process to provide opportunities to discover the strengths and weaknesses in focus, development, and organization.
    Tips on Developing an Outline
    • Start general and work toward the specific
    • You can begin an outline anytime—even before the scope of a project is fully realized
    • If possible, allow time between outlining and writing your paper
    • Shape your outline in a way that is interesting for you
    • Share your outline with a friend before starting to write
    • Unless your outline is an assignment, it doesn’t have to be “perfect”

    B. Chaos as a social problem

    C. Transforming chaos

    b. chaos is a mind thing
    II. Methods of transformation
    A. Increase understanding
    1. Ways of understanding
    B. Decrease confusion
    1. Ways of decreasing confusion
    C. Maintaining a healthy balance between inner and outer worlds
    III. Conclusion – “Chaos needs to be properly understood”
    A. Misunderstanding chaos is not an option
    1. Confusion breeds discontent ; discontent breeds violence
    2. Outer peace requires reducing inner discontent, reducing inner discontent requires more understanding
