Businesses often conduct research to maximize profits as well as to understand their competitive edge. There are a number of considerations when preparing and conducting research for a business – biases, reviewing credible sources, and ethical considerations. Throughout the research process it is important to recognize and remove personal biases in order to provide a balanced and thorough review. Another important consideration is to review and utilize sources that are reliable and provide objective information. It is also important to think about the ethics of your research. Being honest, respecting the integrity of data, and being objective help to ensure the credibility of research.

Respond to the scenario below with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. Be substantive and clear, and use research to reinforce your ideas.
Now that you have gained an understanding of Red Carpet, Leroy has asked you to join in on a preliminary meeting with the VP of HR and other members of the organization to discuss change. The meeting is important because many employees are unsure of their role in the change process. In fact, the VP of HR has not settled yet on what type of change is needed or how to start the change process. Leroy has asked you to participate in the discussion to help clarify information needed about the change process.
Review the Red Carpet scenario for this course, and with your classmates, discuss the following questions that will provide insight into the change process:
· In your opinion, what does Red Carpet need to change? Should the change be transformational, developmental, or transitional, and why?
· What employees or employee groups should be included in the change process, and why?
· What do you recommend Red Carpet do to begin the change process?


This course uses the CTU Professional Learning Model™ (CTU PLM) to teach students with
hands-on, industry-related, problem-solving experiences that model the professional
environment and encourage achievements that lead to student and employer success. The
CTU PLM is founded on the idea that students learn best by working on real-world,
professional projects related to their chosen career fields. By working this way, students
develop the expertise to apply conceptual knowledge to get effective results. Through
professional learning, students experience the complexity of real-world problems and learn to
select an appropriate approach to a problem that has more than one solution. This method of
learning is called Problem-Based Learning (PBL). PBL assumes that you will master content
while solving a meaningful problem in each assignment.
Throughout the course, you will work with a scenario in which some basic, background
information is provided about a company. (This information could apply to any company that
provides products or services of this sort in general.) You have a role in the scenario; that is,
you are part of the story. The dialogue in each assignment presents the problem that must be
solved. It is up to you to respond to the problem and submit a deliverable that will be graded.
Refer to the following scenario as you progress through the PBL process.
