This assignment is important, as it continues the development of the organizatio

This assignment is important, as it continues the development of the organizational model started last week. Models are representations of reality; for example, a map is not the territory, but a map is useful when traveling or exploring over time. Additionally, developing models is helpful in gaining a better understanding of whatever is being modeled. To the extent that a model can be digitized, simulation may be possible to gain additional understanding of how the dynamics play out, instead of having just a static model. Software packages such as NetLogo, iThink, Stella, and to some extent, Excel, are useful in exploring systems dynamics over time.
Stocks are accumulators in this context; they are not financial instruments. In systems terms, stocks are inventories of raw materials, finished goods, cash on hand, the number of employees, and so on. Flows illustrate the material, information, and energy that are input to and from stocks.
Feedback loops are either positive (amplifying) or negative (goal-seeking) structures that affect flows and stocks. More specifically, flows represent the rate of change in stocks and are measured over time. For example, a company might have $1,000,000 cash on hand in a bank account earning 2% interest. A positive feedback loop would be adding the 2% interest to the account each time period and not taking anything out. The interest rate remains the same, but as 2% is continually added, the principle becomes larger, and the 2% of this larger amount becomes larger as well, thus increasing the size of the bank account. An example of a negative feedback loop is a company of 500 people looking to hire 20 more employees. Thus, 20 employees is the target, and people are hired until reaching 20.
Please include the following
Evaluate at least three stocks and associated flows in your selected organization.
Evaluate at least one positive feedback loop in your selected organization.
Evaluate at least two examples of how understanding stocks, flows, and feedback loops might improve decision making within the organization.

Note: Stocks in this context are not stocks as in stocks and bonds! Stocks are something that can be accumulated, and, yes, stocks can be accumulated or aggregated in a stock portfolio. Thus, while perhaps weird, you could have stock of stocks! But stock is an accumulation, not a financial instrument in this class and in systems science.

Define organizational behavior, according to the text, and examine how it impacts personal and organizational success. Identify and distinguish the managerial context of organizational behavior.

Writing assignments are judged on the quality of the response in regard to the question. Word count is NOT one of the criteria that is used in assigning points to writing assignments. However, students who are successful in earning the maximum number of points tend to submit writing assignments that fall between 750-1000 words (3-4 pages) per question.
Citation Styles
The majority of your response should be your own original writing based on what you have learned from the textbook and outside materials, if applicable. Be sure to provide a citation and a reference for any materials used, including the required textbook. The following points are designed to help you understand how to provide proper citations and references for your work:
Sources are listed in two places.
The first, a citation, is briefly listed within your answer. This includes identifying information that directs the reader to your list of references at the end of your writing assignment.
The second, a reference, is at the end of your work in the list of references section.
All sources cited should follow APA style and provide enough identifying information so that the reader can access the original material.

Submit Two Business Ethics News Items You are responsible for submitting two cur

Submit Two Business Ethics News Items
You are responsible for submitting two current, business-ethics related objective news items (not analysis, commentary, or opinion pieces*) on completely different topics. The articles should:
have appeared in mainstream, reputable journalistic news outlets (see details below) within four weeks of the submission date
include ethically questionable behavior by for-profit businesses, not by non-profits or government agencies
discuss moral issues facing business people;
Do not use:
legal or government issues (e.g., lawsuits, regulatory, or university activities)
those facing specific professions that have their own specialized ethics fields (e.g., journalism, law, and medicine)
those whose issues are idiosyncratic(e.g., professional sports or utilities).
The articles must each be between 350 and 1000 words (you can paste the text into Word to check the count). The final cutoff time for submitting your articles to the instructor via this discussion board link is listed in the course schedule.
You are welcome to submit your stories early, or to submit them one at a time.
Include each story’s Title, Reporter, Publication, and URL in your submission.
NOTE: Your article must not be identical to a previous student’s submission, and the same topic can only appear on the submission topic list twice. Be sure to check the submission document before investing time in finding your article, so that you know which topics are already taken. Students who submit early will have the greatest variety of topics available.
Your grade will be determined based on how closely your selected articles match the above requirements, along with the depth and interest level of the business ethics issues they raise. Take your time researching and selecting your submissions: each article accounts for 6% of your course grade.
*Commentaries will include the writer’s opinions, made clear by such clues as using first-person (“I”) terminology or stating evaluations of whether the behaviors reported are good or bad. Your job is to find “straight” news stories that just report the facts.
Examples of mainstream, reputable journalistic news outlets include:
The Wall Street Journal https://www.wsj.com/
The Financial Times https://www.ft.com/
The New York Times https://www.nytimes.com/
The Washington Post https://www.washingtonpost.com/
The Boston Globe https://www.bostonglobe.com/
The San Diego Union-Tribune http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/
Fortune magazine http://fortune.com/
Business Week magazine https://www.bloomberg.com/businessweek
