Individual Research Paper


Take a topic mentioned in our readings and explore it further in 6  pages.  Identify and discuss the current trends in your chosen topic area ( Maryland).  Possible topics include (but are not limited to) use of virtual teams in global corporations, methods for managing conflict among virtual team members, team-based compensation programs, or team decision making processes. 


Support your opinions and statements with a minimum of 7 or more references from sources published within the last ten years and be sure to integrate concepts, theories, and readings from our work over the semester.  You can cite scholarly and practitioner-oriented journals, newspaper articles, and YouTube videos about the topic, but not Wikipedia, vendor websites, or other non-academic sources.  The UMUC library can help you identify appropriate sources.  See the Library tab in the Resources dropdown menu on the blue ribbon at the top of our classroom for more information about the services provided by the UMUC library.


Use APA format for citations, references, and quotations.  This means your list of references should start on a separate page, and should be double spaced, with a hanging indent and no spaces between entries.  Your paper should be 6 pages (not counting the cover or reference pages), double spaced with one inch margins and a font size of at least 11 points. Writing should be in 3rd person.
