This project is all about building your own organisation ,and how to handle business on your own.
The final draft of the project is presented in a formal business report format. It will be professional and organised efficiently and effectively. This is not something that you throw together at the last minute. Each portion or section of the report should flow into the next. A description of each section is provided below and will be further discussed in class.
Components of the report:
Many of the components of this project build off of each other and will focus on an individual you hire and will develop throughout their career, such as the job description, training program, and performance appraisal. Several of these components are spreadsheets and policies. Be sure to introduce each component with a brief explanation of what it is and why you chose the type of program you chose.
