The Final Project is to be submitted as a PowerPoint presentation of approximately 20-25 slides. Material from the Unit 4 and Unit 5 Assignments can be used to provide a background and foundation upon which to build. While the primary focus of the Final Project should be on your firm’s global operations, integrate information on the regional and national level, as well. How have they done in the past? What is their current state? What kinds of plans and possibilities do they have for the future? Is there room for improving what they do? Should new ventures be added or old ones subtracted? As you can see, the field is wide open for you to construct your project in the most relevant way you see fit.

As parts of the Final Project you are to include an 18-24 month forecast and a strategic audit (an analysis of how well the firm’s strategies have worked to date). Your conclusion should include a clear set of recommendations that are well supported. The project must include APA format references on the final slide and in-text references on the slide where information is presented. Include a minimum of three high-quality, up-to-date sources. It is to be submitted to the Week 6 Dropbox by the end of Unit 6.
