1. Read the article in your readings on persuasion and watch the videos after the written material:

2. Find two examples of political advertising that demonstrate one or more of the persuasion techniques or principles. The political advertisements can be those created for TV or print (e.g., newspaper) or those posted on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube. They can be contemporary (like from this current election cycle) or historical. In your write-up, please include a link of the ad (if it’s a video) or a photo of the ad.

3. Respond to the following questions for each of the political ads (write a paragraph for each political ad):

Which persuasion techniques did the ads apply? Were there multiple that you could identify?
Which persuasion techniques in the ads do you find to be the most effective? Why?
Which techniques do you find to be the least effective? Why?
Do you think that any of these election ads go too far? Why or why not?
Write a third paragraph, answering the following:

How much attention do you pay to political ads?
Out of the techniques described in your reading, which do you see used the most often in current political ads? Which do you see used the least often?
Do you think these persuasion techniques should be “fair game” in politics, or do you think they should not be used? Why or why not? (or under which circumstances?)
What do you think the line is between persuasion and propaganda? How can you tell, as a viewer of ads?

There was once a man who had never seen an eagle. One day a magnificent eagle landed on his windowsill, and when he saw it, he exclaimed, What an ugly creature! The man grabbed the eagle and pulled it into his house. First, Im going to fix that curved beak of yours. He used a file to remove the hook in the eagles beak. Those claws are vicious looking, the man said as he clipped the eagles claws until there was little left. When he finished, the man said, There, now you look better. And he put the bird back on his open windowsill and shooed it away. You can imagine how long the newly trimmed eagle lasted in the wild.


The man changed the bird drastically in this story. Without valuing the birds special qualities, the man altered the bird to what he thought would be better.


1)Think about the eagle for a moment. How important do you think it is for the eagle to have its claws and sharp beak?
2)Have you ever tried to change a person who is different from you?
3) Did the man know the importance of the eagles claws and beak? If he knew more about eagles, do you think he would have appreciated the eagle instead of changing it?

the Max Wideman and his Woody 2000 case study.

This is a typical (but not real) example of a project which has gone wrong.  Woody is the owner of a small manufacturing company which has expanded over the years but has recognized an opportunity to expand their business further but has been advised that they need more manufacturing space.

Using the case study as a base, assume that you are a Project Management Consultant who has been brought in to advise the organization regarding their Project Management process and to offer advice and guidance regarding best practice techniques which should have been employed in the case study project.

You have been asked to advise as to how the Business Case should have been developed and then scoped further for the Project Initiation Document and more detailed planning stages. With reference to the literature for justification, write a formal report which:

. Introduces the context including an explanation as to where projects originate from and how a project idea should be evaluated

. How the original business case should have been approached and what it should have included

. Why determining the root cause of the problem and potential alternative solutions may have avoided the problems experienced by the organization

. How the project should have been scoped after acceptance to enable more detailed planning

. Recommends how the project should be implemented (choice of life cycle and methodology/frameworks to be applied, scope management)

. How project success should be measured

In this Assessment, you will culminate one course outcome by demonstrating an ability to make strategic business decisions:

Strategy is often a complex puzzle that requires both leadership and management oriented decision-making, critical thinking and problem-solving abilities. Strategic thinking, in general, requires the understanding of intricate design structures and networks within an organization. Choosing the appropriate strategic approach can be a daunting task, requiring business acumen and professional competencies that leaders and managers possess, such as professional communication (verbal, written, body language), planning, organization, analysis, reasoning skills, persistence, time management, perseverance, and much more. To meet the challenges in this Assessment, you must be ready to use a combination of such professional competencies and business acumen to formulate strategic business decisions from a leadership, management and organizational design perspective.

        Identify two companies that operate within the same industry from the list of industries and companies that your Professor has provided. You will assume the role of CEO for one of your chosen companies, and the other company will be a competitor that operates in the same industry with similar products.

        From a management perspective, provide reasoning on the potential for your company to achieve competitive advantage in the market based on differentiating the companys products from the offerings of rivals.
