                                                              Introduction 

· Write an Introduction paragraph.  The introduction paragraph is the first paragraph of the paper and will be used to describe to the reader the intent of the paper explaining the main points covered in the paper.  This intent should be understood prior to reading the remainder of the paper so the reader knows exactly what is being covered in the paper.  The introduction is often written after the paper is completed. (Use in-text citation as required.)

You must provide support, justification, and where appropriate, in-text citation, for the video facts matched with the dimension descriptors. (Use heading below and in-text citation as required.)

                                                        Competitive Advantage

Review the Paper 
Read the paper to ensure all required elements are present.
The following are specific requirements that you will follow.  Use the checklist to mark off that you have followed each specific requirement.  

Checklist

Specific Project Requirements

 

Proofread your paper. Ensure your topic heading match those above. 

 

Read and use the grading rubric while completing the report to ensure all requirements are met that will lead to the highest possible grade. 

 

Third-person writing is required.  Third-person means that there are no words such as “I, me, my, we, or us” (first-person writing), nor is there use of “you or your” (the second person writing).  If uncertain how to write in the third person, view this link:  
http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/first-second-and-third-person

 

Contractions are not used in business writing, so do not use them.  

 

Paraphrase and do not use direct quotations.  Paraphrase means you do not use more than four consecutive words from a source document.  Removing quotation marks and citing is inappropriate.  Instead, put a passage from a source document into your own words and attribute the passage to the source document.  There should be no passages with quotation marks.  Using more than four consecutive words from a source document would require direct quotation marks.  Changing words from a passage does not exclude the passage from having quotation marks.     

 

You are expected to use the provided weekly course materials to develop the analysis and support the reasoning.   There should be a robust use of the course material.  The material used from a source document must be cited and referenced.  A reference within a reference list cannot exist without an associated in-text citation and vice versa.  Changing words from a passage does not exclude the passage from having quotation marks.   

 

Use in-text citations and provide a reference list that contains the reference associated with each in-text citation.

 

You may not use books in completing this problem set unless part of the course material.  Also, do not use a dictionary, Wikipedia or Investopedia, or similar sources.

 

Provide the page or paragraph number in every in-text citation. Since the eBook does not have page numbers,  you are to include the chapter title, section heading, and paragraph number.
For citations using a video, you must provide the minutes and second of the cited material.

Submit the paper in the Assignment Folder (The assignment submitted to the Assignment Folder will be considered the student’s final product and therefore ready for grading by the instructor.  It is incumbent upon the student to verify the assignment is the correct submission. 
(The assignment submitted to the Assignment Folder will be considered the student’s final product and therefore ready for grading by the instructor.  It is incumbent upon the student to verify the assignment is the correct submission.  Where Turnitin is available students are encouraged to modify their paper were warranted to bring the paper into compliance with proper citation requirements.)

NOTE:  All submitted work is to be your original work. You may not use any work from another student, the Internet, or an online clearinghouse.  You are expected to understand the Academic Dishonesty and Plagiarism Policy and know that it is your responsibility to learn about instructor and general academic expectations with regard to proper citation of sources as specified in the APA Publication Manual, 7th Ed. (Students are held accountable for in-text citations and an associated reference list only).
