TEAM ASSIGNMENT DETAILS
Due in Unit 5
As your company grows, you as a leadership team need to determine your path of growth and what resources you will need to support your growth plans. “To ensure your company’s success into the future, you should know where your business currently lies on its evolutionary path, and how it can get to the next stage of business growth” (Ortlieb, 2021, para 2). The decisions the leadership team makes on how to grow and how to seek resources of all types are critical to future success. For this team assignment, you will work together to complete the Business Assessment and Improvement Plan template below and use it as a base for a 15–20 slide PowerPoint presentation. Your goal for this assignment is to create a plan that will provide you with the best support possible to achieve your goals before the end of gameplay.
This PowerPoint will be both text and audio based with each team member presenting at least one slide. This tutorial can help you if you are unsure about how to include audio. The structure of the slides, content, and presentation will be up to the team as long as all information is included.
This assignment, as all of the other written assignments, will take you beyond the confines of the simulation into a more real-life application.
