Irst Tennessee Bank (First Horizon National Corp) Organizational Behavior

PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE COVER PAGE! THANKS!

This paper is designed to: 1) evaluate your theoretical knowledge learned in the course, and 2) evaluate your ability to integrate the subject matter learned in class with YOUR OWN work and/or home and/or community environment. Therefore, you are to do two things: first define your concept that you have chosen, and then integrate it into YOU OWN work environment in some way.
You are to select three topics to write your final paper about. Your research will be about those three topics. In its entirety, the final paper should be between 8 and 10 pages (not including cover and References). It is to be typed, double-spaced and in APA format. The final paper topics are to be chosen from the text and must deal with some aspect of organizational behavior. It is recommended that you chose topics that can shed light on something your own organization is currently going through and are of some interest to you.
Each topic should have its own heading before moving on to the next topic so that the final paper can be read with ease. There should be at least 2 outside references per topic included in your works cited page (the course text does not count as a reference).
Things to be aware of:
i?? Write this paper in 3rd person. If you doni??t know what that means, please take the time to learn this. Do not use 1st or 2nd person in this paper.
i?? You are to name your organization in the introduction as well as the three topics you are writing about. Make it easy for the reader to understand what you are writing about.
i?? Make sure you use parenthetical (within text) citations when you use a source that you need to cite. See the APA manual for details on how to do that.
i?? APA calls for strict double spacing and indenting. No need for i??gapsi?? between paragraphs or i??block stylei?? paragraphs. Double space all parts of your paper. That means you may have to adjust your default in WORD to make sure there are not line spaces before or after paragraph breaks.
i?? The standard course assignment grading rubric will be used for this paper.
i?? Try to use the most recent sources for your paper. A great place to start is the ProQuest data base (via Galileo). The use of the course text is not suitable as a source for this paper.
