In this assignment,
you will analyze the readings and activities from this course and synthesize
them into a well-organized and cohesive paper. Use the APA Paper Template [DOCX] to complete this assignment.
This assignment is made up of multiple parts
and should be completed in multiple sittings. It is recommended that you
complete the following things in the prescribed order. Your paper should
contain the following sections.
Write a solid introduction that explains to
the reader the different parts of the assignment. Your introduction should
include a hook, the background information, and an overarching thesis sentence.
In the Egfjord and
Sund (2020) articles, discussions of BMI occur along with the ideas of
cognitive differentiation and cognitive integration. For the first section of
your paper, describe your best definition of these two concepts. Note that the
2020 “Do You See What I See?” article includes these two concepts in its
abstract, but the concept terminology does not appear in either article. Thus,
you might need to do more research on the terminology and consider how each
article describes what the authors mean by cognition to help provide a solid
pair of definitions. Cite any other source you use. This section should be no more
than three paragraphs but
should also include a solid explanation of what cognition means, on its own,
and as used by these authors.
3. Business Model
On page 7 of the “Do You See What I
See?” article, the authors ask these questions:
” . . design changes seem to be the inevitable outcome of
adding business models to the organization. If this is the case, should
organizational redesign actually precede BMI?”
“Is an organization already designed to accommodate a
future BMI more likely to be successful at implementing radical BMI ideas
emerging from an innovation department?”
Did you feel that either or both of their
articles provided you with a solid answer to either of these questions? If yes,
answer one or both of the questions and provide support to your answer. If
no, what other information might you want or need to know to answer the
In your paper, respond to the following
1. What assumptions do
you feel you might need to make to answer the questions above? Would those
be necessary, sufficient, or flawed assumptions? Explain your answer.
organizational redesign precede BMI?
3. Is an organization
already designed to accommodate a future BMI more likely to be successful at
implementing radical BMI ideas?
This section should be about 4–6 paragraphs. Organize it in a way that you feel best
provides the information logically to your reader. Use headings.
Review the guidelines
provided in this week’s assigned readings from Academic Writer about publishing
the same study in two different journals. In this case, the authors have done
so. Provide your opinion, based on your interpretation of the publication
guidelines, as to whether the APA would feel that these authors have
appropriately followed the APA guidelines for multiple publications of the same
data. How has this double publication lent credence to the authors
ontological humility? Would you have considered double publishing in this same
way? If yes, why? If no, why not?
Your answer to this question should be about 1–2 pages.
In the Ontological Humility media, think back
to your thoughts on the Dueling Managers scenario. In that assessment, you were
asked to consider three assumptions and journal about your reactions to the
scenario and assumptions. In this section of your paper, answer the following
1. Did you feel that
the way the scenario was structured was designed to create false assumptions?
Or, do you feel that the falsity of the assumptions was simply a result of the
facts and how they were presented? In other words, would the same assumptions
have been accurate if different facts had existed? Why or why not?
Explicit bias is a bias that is an open and obvious prejudice. For
