I will deliver the case study as a briefing presentation of about 20-25 minutes.

1. A comprehensive powerpoint presentation meticulously researched with presentation of the issue and with particular analysis of “effectiveness” of a current public policy issue.
2. A one page set of notes for submission
I need to lead a class through a case study of a current policy issue (I will specify the policy issue). The case study will either be prospective (what might/should happen?) or retrospective (what did happen?) but must present my analysis, using the tools of the course, and be grounded in verifiable evidence. The choice of topics has already been made. I will need to do additional research and analysis, using the course materials (readings and discussion) as a foundation. I will deliver the case study as a briefing presentation of about 20-25 minutes. A one page set of notes is due prior to class for my presentation. Number slides is not determined. But it should take into account the time for max 24 minute presentation.

Why is motivation or a lack of motivation a concern, what is the failure risk?

Using the information in this course, for your final project choose a topic that identifies a concern in your organization. With the use of resources beyond the text and course power points provide an analysis of your concern and a possible solution.
Topic: Motivation in the Military (Intrinsic/ Extrinsic, Theory X &Y, Etc.)
– Examine the current motivation in your unit. Compare your findings to the larger military if proper sourcing is used.
– In the introduction, introduce you unit, total members, function, that sort of thing. Then introduce your failure concern and research objective. Why is motivation or a lack of motivation a concern, what is the failure risk?
– In the body you want to conduct internal research. You will want to interview or survey other unit members to gauge their level of motivation, or what motivates them. This will be based on your research questions. Try to survey multiple ranks, motivation tends to change as one climbs the ladder.
– Next, research motivation on a larger scale like the military and conduct your scholarly research. Here is where you can compare or contrast your unit to other groups.
– Finally, provide recommendations that would reduce the failure risk based on your research results. Remember to cite you sourcing.
Be sure to follow proper APA and adhere to project guidelines.

Discuss what an unconscious decision might (could) look like and what might drive one to that decision.

In the 2018 eleven minute TED talk video attached below, Dolly Chugh talks about “bounded rationality.” Ms. Chugh suggests that, like our minds subconsciously processing eleven million pieces of information at once, we make many of our ethical decisions subconsciously. Ms. Chugh explains that it is often our unwillingness to accept that we have room to grow toward being a better person that keeps us from it. Arguably, Ms. Chugh hits on why it is important to study ethics. It is the thinking about why we do what we do that is most likely to help us to be better people and help others think about why they do what they do.
For this week’s discussion, watch the video and think about a decision a public safety administrator might have to make, either doing the job or performing an administrative act, which could have a component of ethics associated with it.
Discuss what an unconscious decision might (could) look like and what might drive one to that decision. Discuss what choices might be available and apply at least two ethical theories, preferably from this week’s readings, to the decision and explain what those theories might suggest as the “right” course of action. Finally, explain what you think about Ms. Chugh’s point.
