MBA 515 Projects Committee for Royal Caribbean Cruise Line
You’re an operations executive chairing the Projects Committee for Royal Caribbean Cruise Line. You’re committee has been tasked with conducting a post-audit of the
Project: Oasis of the Sea. The committee is aware that the ship actual performance (financial) has fallen short of expectations. As Chair of the Projects Committee,
you’re expected to prepare a report that outlines current status of the investment (project), and then present a plan to improve its performance in the foreseeable
future. You will want to gather relevant information (financial, economic, etc.); explore and evaluate alternatives that will bring the Oasis of the Sea into the
“black”; and document your plan, on behalf of the Projects Committee, using sound arguments that are well supported, properly vetted, and logically presented. It is
important that management carefully consider any potential ethical implications associated with their stated position. If there are any potential ethical concerns
associated with your position, they should be identified and discussed in the final recommendation.
If you prepared your response in Word, please cut and paste it directly into the discussion board so that everyone will not need to first download your response, then
open it to read it.There is no minimum or maximum in terms of the word count; however, the response should explicitly address all required components of this
discussion assignment. The document should be prepared consistent with the APA writing style (6th edition) and reflect higher level cognitive processing (analysis,
synthesis, and or evaluation).
It is important that you become comfortable receiving and giving constructive criticisms, since this is an important component in one’s professional growth and
development and a core competency for leaders. Students will be expected to read the initial posting of at least TWO peers, and then provide thoughtful comments
addressing the following:
a) Point out what you perceived to be the strengths of the initial posting along with supporting rationale.
b) Identify specific opportunities for improvement with regard to the content in the initial posting. Furthermore, you should provide supporting rationale for your
stated position, as well as concrete suggestions and guidance intended to strengthen the effectiveness of the content.
Peer responses should be typed directly into the discussion thread and not attached to a posting. For these responses, should outside sources be used to support the
content within the postings, proper in-text citations and correctly formatted references should be prepared consistent with the APA (6th edition). The list of
references should be physically positioned at the end of the postings.
