Team Presentations (20%): Team Presentation Projects will consist of a presentation on selected case study that will highlight the management concepts being discussed in the text and additional readings for the week. A team of students will be assigned to research and present the case study relevant to management controls being discussed in class. The project should take an in-depth look at the case and present their findings. All members of the team must contribute in terms of content to the project and in some form for the presentation. Presentations will be up to 20 minutes but no less than 15 minutes. A written report is not required.
Team presentation will be graded in the following areas:
- Facts of the Case Study (20%) – Team effectively presents the relevant facts of the assigned case study.
- Assumptions (10%) – Team reasonably identifies where information is lacking or insufficient and the assumptions made as a result.
- Problems and Probable Causes (20%) – Team effectively identifies the underlying problems and the underlying cause(s) relevant to the weekly management control topics.
- Response (15%) – Team selects a solution and how it would be implemented including a rough-order-of-magnitude costs and benefits assessment. Review (10%) – Team reviews the case to assure solution is efficient, feasible, and ethical.
- Open or unresolved questions/concerns (10%) – Team identifies for further discussion their questions or concerns raised by the case.
- Team Participation (15%) – Student participates fully in Team presentation
