COUNTRY : INDIA ….. BASIC outline with annotated bibliography and in text citation Assignment 5: Country Presentation and Outline with APA Annotated Bibliography Assignments Audience: The strategic management team of Posh Pastries. Assignment: Assume you work for Posh Pastries, a medium-sized company (approximately 200 employees) that makes special gourmet baked pastries. These pastries are usually sold in groceries and small convenience stores. The company’s largest market is the USA (90% of sales), but it has expanded over the past five years to markets in Canada and northern Mexico. Because family members from Italy are involved in the business, the company also has a small operation in Rome where its products can be found in a few stores. The pastries have a shelf life of approximately two months, so they preserve well, which allows for overseas shipping and sales. Management now wants to expand to one or two other countries. Therefore, the head of the strategic management team has asked key staff members to prepare a presentation recommending a country in which Posh Pastries might open operations. As a staff member of Posh Pastries, develop a 5-minute presentation recommending a country the company should consider for expansion. When preparing your presentation, consider some of these topics (two or three at most—definitely not all): political climate/stability, geography and transportation, culture (including diet), economic situation, or other factors. Semester Project Parts 2 & 3: The Outline + Annotated APA Bibliography Follow the guidelines in Chapter 12; however, I will provide you with the outline structure to use since the sample outlines in the text do not fit this assignment. Since the strategic management team invited the staff to present recommendations, the team expects and will be receptive to your presentation. Therefore, you can take the direct approach. Given that the presentation is only five minutes, you’ll need to follow this sequence: (1) state your recommendation directly; (2) preview the reasons for your recommendation; (3) present each reason and provide support (e.g., facts, illustrations, authoritative quotes); (4) address any concerns; and (5) end by restating the key points and motivating the committee to consider your recommendation. (See the separately attached file: Country Presentation Outline.) Before you’re ready to create your outline, you’ll need to research your country. Here are some helpful sources for country information: • CIA World Factbook https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/ • UN’s Statistical Yearbook http://unstats.un.org/unsd/syb/ The annotated APA bibliography lists the sources you used throughout your outline to develop your reasons. Immediately following each entry on the bibliography, provide a description and evaluation of the source: What was it about? How useful was it in terms of your project and why?
