Term Paper         My organization is Dollar general   Describe the various Training and Development activities at your organization.  Include in your analysis, information on:   – Performance Review Processes (i.e. Performance Appraisals)       – Training and Development Programs – Disciplinary Processes  2) Expand your initial paper to include:  – Leadership Development Programs – Succession Planning  – Organizational Re-structuring – Reductions in Force – Unionization (if applicable) 3) Make at least 3 recommendations for ways in which to improve any of processes listed for #1 or #2  4) Evaluation of the recommendations – how will you know if your recommendations were successful or not.  This section should list and explain all metrics and measures used and should identify both quantitative and qualitative metrics that should be included. *Resource material should be used for items #3 and #4 **One comprehensive paper should be submitted that includes the initial analysis and items 2-4.  *This paper should be in a formal APA format, which includes a title page, abstract and full reference page.  All resources should be included and cited according to APA format. Like this: APAThe most common problem is typically with directly quoted material.  When you quote directly (under 40 words), you need to include quotation marks around the passage(s) used, along with the author’s last name, date of publication and page number (or “n.p.” for “no page”).  If the passage is over 40 words it is indented vs. quotation marks, the other citation information is the same.  When you paraphrase material or have used it as a general reference, this means it is in your words.  The correct method of citation is just the author’s last name an date of publication.Examples:Direct Quote:  “The ADA provides that qualified individuals with disabilities may not be discriminated against” (Bernardin, 2013, p.86)Paraphrased: The Americans with Disability Act was passed in 1990, which essentially extends the concept of equal employment to those that have disabilities (Bernardin, 2013).This may seem like a small difference, however in academia, it is extremely important to not only give credit where credit is due, but also to clearly distinguish your words from someone else’s.Finally,. the “rule of thumb” in terms of resources is that approximately 80% of  any given assignment, paper, case study, etc should be authored by you with resources (paraphrased or directly quoted) accounting for the remaining 20%.  Resources should not be used in lieu of your own words, thoughts and ideas, they should instead be used to support your thoughts and ideas.
