Your case study critique will be due on October 21 st. Papers that have excessive problems with
grammar, punctuation, spelling or typos will not be accepted. Your paper must be computer generated

exception may or may not be made.
Early in the semester, you will need to locate a current event article that includes an interesting
communication dilemma/issue/case study. What communication errors, issues, problems have
recently occurred in this business? Was it an inter-generational communication issue? A social media
faux pas? Was it a lapse in ethical judgment? Was it crisis communication gone wrong? Did an
organization communicate using the wrong channel or medium? These are just a few examples of
issues you may see in the headlines of today. It’s important to pick a current event that can be solved
with the concepts from our readings and discussions.
You will be asked to turn in a four pages (page guideline only) critique of the article. If time is
permitted, we will also discuss it in a small or large group. In your paper, you will first summarize the
appropriate communication issues, problems, and business involved, etc., and second offer alternative
solutions using the knowledge you’ve gained during the first half of this course. You must use and
cite the class text (Bovee & Thill, 2014). Connect your solutions to recommendations made in the
text. All the aforementioned writing rules will apply to this assignment
