Overview: Your team will create one PowerPoint presentation according to the instructions below. Each member of your team will contribute information and help the leader compile the information into one final presentation.
1.Using your research on Fitzgerald, your team will create a PowerPoint presentation of 5-7 slides about the author’s life and how his life experiences influenced his writing. Include at least three visuals. (Note about visuals: You can create your own visuals, use clip art, or use items from the Internet. If you use Internet images in your presentation, cite the sources on your final slide.)
2.As the week begins, join your team and do the following:◦Each team should select a leader.
◦Each team member should participate fully. Points will be based on both the amount of material posted and the quality of the work posted.
◦Each team member should make at least one substantial and detailed contribution to the presentation, plus at least two team interaction comments that help to advance the project or that offer valuable feedback about what has been posted.
◦Remember that short comments, such as “I will go along with what everyone wants to do,” earn no points. Offer significant material that advances the project.
◦Instead of listing web sites, offer the information from that site along with the reference.
◦Do not just offer material that was cut-and-pasted from the web sites; instead, write up the information in your own words.
3.The team leader will submit the presentation, to the Doc Sharing area for your team.
4.Title the presentation using the team designation and course section. (For example: TeamA-AML2000-1001) *Important note: The presentation must be posted in Doc Sharing, to receive credit for the assignment.

Annie has been recently hired full time at a major tech company where she interned for two summers during her college career. Annie loves her job and has established many strong relationships with her co-workers over the time she has worked there. The company encourages the interns and new hires to interact with VPs and upper management in order to create an open and friendly atmosphere.
During her time as an intern, Annie began to notice that one of the VPs paid her extra attention. When he was around he would always make an extra effort to stop by Annie’s cubicle and chat: something he did not do with any of the other interns. He reached out to her over social networking sites and even invited her to a gathering at his house. Some of her co-workers began to make offhand comments to Annie about the extra attention.
Now that she was in a full time position, Annie began to dread that she would soon have to work with this VP directly. While he has not done or said anything explicitly inappropriate, the extra attention—and the fact that her co-workers noticed it—made her very uncomfortable and undermined her concentration on work. When she was hired, she was told that she should always speak to her manager if she was uncomfortable or had issues with the work environment. While at the same time, she is afraid to come across like a tattletale since the VP hasn’t explicitly done anything wrong.
What course of action should Annie take?

Project Manager, Megan Smith, has asked your group to research and report on the opportunity to expand a product offering in a foreign country. Specifically, your group is tasked with researching and reporting on one of “HairCare Products” economy products, a shampoo called “Everyday Essence”.
Pressure has come from the CEO and Board of Directors of “HairCare Products” to increase the availability of a superior product to foreign countries at an economy price.
Your group is expected to assess the extent that “Everyday Essence” can meet the demand necessary for profitability in a chosen country or region over the next year and provide sound rationale behind your group’s final decision. To do this your group is expected to consider the consumer and business dynamics in the marketplace (competition, segments, social customs, class structures, politics, religion, family life, etc.) company limitations (business operations), and the factors influencing potential profit (i.e. shipping, distribution, taxes, etc.). Essentially, “HairCare Products” is open to new ideas, if they are backed up with sound rationale so feel free to think outside-the-box. All the information your group will need (excluding research and business report/presentation formatting) is provided on the following pages.
Company Information – HairCare Products
HairCare Products is a large sized manufacturer of a range of personal hygiene products, best known in the United States for shampoos, soaps, shower gels and men’ s shaving accessories. The launch of “ Everyday Essence” 30 years ago as HairCare Products first entrant into the shampoo market has solidified the organization’s footing with local, regional and eventual national success by achieving and maintaining the spot of #1 selling shampoo by volume and sales for the past 20 years. HairCare Products expanded their offerings to include over 20 different shampoos in every segment of the shampoo market as well as a range of other personal hygiene products.
The organizational culture of HairCare Products places a high value on maintaining tight financial control, as many members of the Board of Directors were first trained as accountants. Profits from HairCare Products best known brands are currently stagnating as competition in the United States has expanded dramatically over the past five years with both store brand and niche brands eating away at many loyal consumer segments for a variety of reasons. The opportunity to maintain growth has been identified in foreign countries by possibly bringing a #1 U.S. product to consumers in these uncharted countries.
Everyday Essence’s success to date has in part been due to the product’s image of having good quality ingredients at a price point that consumers find reasonable. Advertising has taken a factual approach to promoting the ‘ingredients’ compared to major competitors along with ‘price’ versus those competitors. Past marketing slogans included: “Everyday Essence – An Everyday Shampoo with ingredients to manage Everyday Hair at an Everyday Price” and “Everyday Essence – An Everyday Shampoo for those who want a superior product at an Everyday Price”. There has been little change in packaging and advertising over the past 30 years since the product’s launch.
Group Project Expectations
• Groups will select a city, region, or country (South Korea is my country)to expand Everyday Essence
• Groups will develop an informational and persuasive formal business report and presentation for the CEO and Board of Directors of HairCare Products
• Groups must decide whether or not their goal is to persuade the CEO and Board of Directors of HairCare Products to expand Everyday Essence into a foreign entity based upon their research findings.
o Remember the CEO and Board of Directors of HairCare Products has requested this report on the potential expansion of Everyday Essence into a foreign city, region, or country. They are placing the responsibility on your group to determine through sound research and rationale a recommendation for their consideration. They are not looking for a group that just assumes that they want expansion and forms the report and presentation to support that goal. They need honest feedback and if expansion is not warranted that is okay, but provide the rationale and research supporting why.
