Choose two topics from our course and two articles on each topic, for a total of four articles. They can be general articles from business publications (like The People Who Make Organizations Go or Stop) or case studies or any combination of the two.
Summarize the articles in your own words. At the end of each article, add one or two paragraphs of personal opinion on anything related to the article. For example: why you chose the article, whether you agree with it, whether it applies to the UAE or to your company/companies, etc.
Here is the trick: You personally are responsible for each others articles. That means they should all have the same quality of writing and analysis. It should not be obvious to me that they were written by three, four, or five people. This requires coordination, which is part of working in a group.
Finally, include a summary of how you worked together. When did you meet? Who did what?
