Assignment 1: Organizational Structure Instructions
Read all instructions and the grading rubric carefully before beginning this assignment. You are responsible for reading and understanding these documents.
For this assignment, you are required to choose between producing a PowerPoint presentation, video presentation, or writing a research paper. This assignment must focus on the organizational models in public administration and the effects of those structures on personnel performance.
Read Exercises 2 and 3 in the Dresang text, the Moynihan & Pandey article, and conduct your own research. You must explain the different models of organizational design that may be utilized in public administration, the effects that these models may have on public service motivation, and an evaluation of organizational structure options in light of biblical principles.
Option 1: Research Paper
If you elect to write a research paper for this assignment, the text of this research paper must be 5–7 pages (not including title page, reference page, and any appendices). This paper must be in current APA format with 1-inch margins and 12-pt Times New Roman font. A title page and reference page must be also included. You must include citations to at least 4–7 appropriate sources (in addition to the course textbooks, assigned readings, and the Bible) to fully support your assertions and conclusions. This assignment draws heavily from the assigned readings for this module/week and you are expected to illustrate your understanding of those sources.
