Assignment 2: LASA—Identifying Issues of Ethics and Employee Fear/Uncertainty

In this assignment, you will build upon your response to the Required Assignment (RA) in Module 4. You will continue your case study of your chosen organization.

Scenario: Now that you have defined the  problem, use behavioral theory constructs to explore how organizational  teams might affect the change effort.

Instructions:

  • Discuss factors of diversity including various types of diversity likely to be encountered in the organization.
  • Identify actual ethical perspectives/approaches within the organization. (Note: Do not identify that something is simply ethical or unethical.)
  • Explain how factors such as offshoring and outsourcing may lead to employee fears and uncertainty.
  • Discuss how all the previous three items (i.e., diversity, ethics,  and offshoring/outsourcing) may lead to conflict individually and in  teams. Include the specific types of conflict that may be present. How  might even individual conflict affect a team’s performance? Is there a  systemic component to this consideration, and if so, how?
  • Recommend a manner to minimize, or perhaps alleviate, such fears and uncertainty.

Write an 8–10-page, well-argued case paper in Word format. Be sure to include a summary section. Note: The title page, references, and appendices are not included in the page count.

Apply APA standards to citation of sources. The course  book, the trade journal(s) noting the problem, as well as peer-reviewed  journal articles are to be used to support your position and theoretical  constructs. General Internet sources will not be accepted as  references.

Write your responses in a clear, concise, and organized  manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and  attribution of sources; display accurate spelling, grammar, and  punctuation per APA (6th edition) standards.
