Week 5
Given the current environment and the “coincidence” of us learning about systems and systems theory, I’d like you to answer these different-than-planned questions this week:
· If, according to systems theory, “everything is connected,” how do you see that idea playing out in the aftermath of the George Floyd killing, if at all?

What are some of the limitations of the critical perspective?
Week 9
For Chapter 7–Identity and Difference in Organizational Life–let’s do something a bit different. Ourchapter deals with how individuals establish their identity in organizations: What is your identity as a consumer?
To do this, I’d like for each of you to create a list of at least 15 products or services you use on a regular basis. These can include, but are not restricted to:
· The kind of car you drive;
· The music you listen to;
· The brands of food you eat;
· The places where you socialize;
· How you decorate your living spaces;
· Where you buy your clothes;
· What you do on vacations and school breaks; and/or
· What activities you participate in to enhance your job prospects.
Once you have entered your list on the Discussion, ask yourself: “What do these patterns of consumption say about the personal brand you have created for me, and how is it communicated to others?” Do you like your brand? Why or why not?
Week 10
Here are some essay questions from this week’s chapter. Please answer one of them using 150-250 words, then comment on another one done by a different student (50-150 words). 75% of the grade will be your answer, and 25% will be your remarks about the other’s response.
As before, if other students have answered a question several times (more than 3), please choose a different one.
· What are the five fundamental changes to the nature of organization that have emerged in the late twentieth century?
· What are the multiple-stakeholder model and workplace democracy? How do they clarify an understanding of participation?
· What does it mean to be an engaged employee? How can workplaces create a space that allows for maximum involvement from their employees?
· Explain how team-based organizations represent an increased level of participation in organizations.
· What are some of the different communication roles that team members play? What are some of the challenges that groups can face as they integrate these different roles into a cohesive and healthy team?

Week 12
Choose one of the following topics and elaborate on it using 100-150 words. Then, make comment on the threads of two other, different topics as posted by your peers and comment on them. If a topic has already been discussed 3-4 times, please choose a different one to use as your own thread. That way, everyone will get an opportunity to reply to multiple comments.
