BMAL 560 CRITICAL ANALYSIS TEMPLATE INSTRUCTIONS
This template is an alliterated mnemonic device for the critical analysis of information.
The alliterated format is used to assist in ordering and recalling data relevant to a subject.
It can be utilized from memory, if necessary, when presenting a speech, leading a
discussion, sitting for an interview, or writing a paper. It can also be used as the
foundation for a formal research paper, a speech, or some other forum, for example, such
as a talk show interview
The Critical Analysis Template is a research tool that will enable you to have a workable
command over a selected topic. It is designed to organize essential information in a
logical and orderly array of categories, which can be amplified to any realistic degree.
The format, with explanations, is located at the end of this document.
Instructions: Select a topic?Using your textbook?s table of contents as a guide, select a topic to
research for the template. Choose a topic that is interesting to you and that may
be useful and benefit you. It must, however, be directly relevant to this course?s
content. Also, it MUST deal with a specific ethical, legal and business
practice issue and not a broad philosophical category of thought. For
instance, choosing the topic of ?business ethics? is way, way too vague. Template Length?After you supply the appropriate information under each
heading, your work will probably be 3?6 pages; more than that will be
cumbersome. The intent is to be concise and to provide the most relevant, highest
quality information possible.
References?When addressing ?Publications,? a few web sites will be good to
have, but the main idea is to have some resources that you could mention in an
interview. For example, if someone was to ask you where more information
could be obtained about your topic, you would be able to rattle off several books
or journal articles and their authors. This would make you seem very
knowledgeable about it (and hopefully, you would be).
Formatting?Use APA format for your printed references. For each section in the
template, items should be written in bullet point format, not paragraph form. If
need be, use a citation for each bullet point, unless information from a source is
being used for more than one bullet point.
Submission?Your assignment, when completed, should be sent to as a Microsoft
Word document. You will submit your completed template through the course
link in Module/Week 7. Also, provide a cover sheet for your template with your
name, BMAL 560 class name, class number, and section. Due Date: You should inform the course instructor by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of
Module/Week 3 of your chosen topic via the Discussion Board forum in
Module/Week 3. Page 1 of 5 BMAL 560 The paper itself is due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of Module/Week 7. Page 2 of 5 BMAL 560 CRITICAL ANALYSIS TEMPLATE
When conducting an analysis, every individual bullet item may not always apply, but the
general assumption will be that every section will be addressed. A thorough
investigation, however, will determine if this is the case, and if you are uncertain, then
make the time to inteact with your professor about it well before the assignment is due.
Responses should be concise ? that is, to the point ? and brief, but not so brief that utility
