Course Learning Outcomes

HUM111 or HUM112 or HUM201

When you’re presented with new ideas and perspectives, how do you process that information?
Like assembling a complicated puzzle, critical thinking involves an inventory of the pieces, an
understanding of how things do (or do not) fit, and finding a way to reach goals. In this course, you
will learn how to use a structured process to evaluate information, think through issues, and
determine solutions.

Week 3 Assignment: Fitting the Pieces Together: Creating a Timeline of Events

Summary

Text

Skill(s) Being Assessed: Problem Solving

Criteria for Success: In this assignment, you will:

Ⓒ 2020 Strayer University. All Rights Reserved. This document contains Strayer University Confidential and Proprietary
information and may not be copied, further distributed, or otherwise disclosed in whole or in part, without the expressed
written permission of Strayer University.

Construct a timeline that includes all key events, arranged in a logical order, and based on
credible information from provided sources.
Include information in the timeline that is accurate, objective and relevant to a workplace
incident.
Produce writing that is clear and well organized and applies appropriate SWS style. Writing
contains accurate grammar, mechanics, and spelling.

What to submit/deliverables: A timeline of events based on the sources provided in the
assignment.

What is the value of doing this assignment?

You are bombarded with information everyday, from news and social media, family and friends,
instructors and peers at school, and from colleagues at work. This information is often unclear,
misleading, or based on partial knowledge. You need to piece together incomplete information, or
information from different sources (some credible, some less so, or that represent different
perspectives) in order to solve problems and make sense of evidence.

In this assignment, you have the opportunity to practice your problem solving skill working through
information (some more or less credible) in order to piece together the events of an unfortunate
workplace incident. This will give you the opportunity to practice your problem-solving skill by
identifying and presenting clear and accurate information as the first step in the problem-solving
process. You will use different sources of information as clues you must piece together, identify
important questions to follow up on, and uncover connections that will allow you to reach
evidence-based conclusions. Doing so will not only help you be successful in this course, but as
you learn to use credible information to help solve problems in your personal and professional life.

This will lay the foundation for your second assignment where you will make (or decide against)
disciplinary recommendations based on your findings.

Your goal for this assignment is to: Practice your problem solving skill by analyzing different
sources of information in order to create a timeline of events to help you piece together the details
of a problem (a workplace event).

What you need to complete this assignment: To complete this assignment, you will need the
following resources:

Loss Prevention Interview Transcripts for Michael, Sarah, and Rachelle; and Security
Camera Footage [DOCX] (a time-stamped transcript).
Office Layout Map [PDF].

https://atlas.capella.edu/course_files/cf_PHI201_A1_Sources_Master.docx

https://atlas.capella.edu/Course_Files/cf_PHI201_OfficeLayoutMap_v02.pdf

Note: All of the resources above can be found on the Submit page in Week 3 of Blackboard.

Scenario:

A valuable piece of technology testing equipment went missing from your company after arriving
in a shipment. The same day, a seemingly identical item was posted for sale on an internet
auction site. Three employees were present within the 90 minute window that the item went
missing.
You are the director of Viewpoint, the company’s employee relations department. The Viewpoint
Director position, a role in Human Resources, means that you are an advocate for all employees
and that your primary responsibility is to relate employee concerns to leadership and provide
guidance on situations involving employee discipline (as requested). The inventory manager has
asked you to assist in this loss prevention case by constructing a timeline of events as the first
step.

Steps to complete: In Week 3, complete and submit your assignment in BlackBoard using the
following steps:

STEP 1: Review the transcripts of all three employees (Page 3.10 in the Webtext) and the security
camera footage (Page 3.11). Do not use any other sources. Space for note taking is provided in
the Webtext. As you review the sources, use the provided space to take notes on the following:

What information did you learn from each source?
What do the sources agree on?
What events definitely happened, and which likely happened?
What conflicting information do you notice?

STEP 2: Determine the most relevant information needed to construct the best possible timeline
based on the provided sources. What information you choose to include (and exclude) will be an
important part of your timeline clarity and accuracy. Ensure information is placed properly in the
chart.

STEP 3: Create a timeline based on the information you’ve determined most relevant. The
timeline template is located on Page 3.12 in the Webtext. As you create your timeline, consider
the following:

Is the timeline easy to understand? Does it read clearly and in a logical order?
Is the language and presentation appropriate for a professional audience? Consider
grammar, choice of wording, and visual effectiveness.

information and may not be copied, further distributed, or otherwise disclosed in whole or in part, without the expressed
written permission of Strayer University.

STEP 4: Download your complete timeline from the webtext. Once downloaded, review the
timeline for accuracy and completeness. Edit as needed. Note: The timeline template provided in
the webtext has a set number of blank areas for you to fill. If you decide there are fewer or a
greater number of events than the spaces provided, you can add additional entries to your
timeline after downloading the template.

STEP 5: Submit your timeline via Blackboard on the Submit page in Week 3. Note: Your grade will
be based on a combination of the information you choose to include, your timeline, and its clarity.
Review the rubric on the assignment submission page.

Criteria for Success:

Ⓒ 2020 Strayer University. All Rights Reserved. This document contains Strayer University Confidential and Proprietary
information and may not be copied, further distributed, or otherwise disclosed in whole or in part, without the expressed
written permission of Strayer University.

Provide recommendations that address the scenario with an explanation of how the
proposed actions address different aspects of the problem.

What to submit/deliverables: A recommendation letter and its explanation based on analysis of
relevant sources.

What is the value of doing this assignment?

We find solutions in our daily lives based on the facts around us. For example, you may suggest
that your child wear a jacket if the weather report seems chilly. Perhaps you provide some
professional guidance to a colleague struggling with a decision at work. For both your personal
and professional lives, understanding how and why you come to these recommendations is an
important part of problem solving accurately.

This assignment builds on your first assignment (the timeline) by asking you to consider and
create recommendations based on your understanding of the facts and then to explain your
thought process and reasoning behind them.

Your goal for this assignment is to:

Engage your problem solving skill by evaluating sources and recommending possible disciplinary
actions for the employees involved in the workplace incident.

What you need to complete this assignment:

Required Resources

Your timeline (created in the Week 3 Assignment).
Inventory Manager’s Recommendation Letter [PDF].
Loss Prevention Manager’s Recommendation Letter [DOCX].
1 outside resource (see Step 3 below).

Optional Resources

Online Auction Posting for Tech Equipment [DOCX].
Scope Invoice [DOCX].
Inventory Manager’s Email [PDF].
Copy of the Police Report Filed After the Incident [PDF].

Scenario: The general manager has asked for a recommendation on what should happen
following the loss prevention issue identified in the Week 3 Assignment. Your recommendation will
join the recommendations from the inventory manager and the loss prevention manager to help
determine punishment (if any) for the employees involved.

As Viewpoint director, your role is to be an advocate for all employees. Your primary responsibility
is to relate employee concerns to leadership and provide guidance on situations involving
employee discipline.

Steps to complete: In Week 5, complete the following in Chapter 5 of your webtext. You will then
download the completed assignment from the Webtext and submit the following in Blackboard:

STEP 1: Review the timeline you created in the Week 3 Assignment (and the feedback you
received from your instructor) to reacquaint yourself with the currently known facts of the incident.

STEP 2: Examine the additional sources provided (Pages 5.7– 5.9 of the Webtext) and determine
how you will use them to formulate a recommendation.

You will need to analyze the benefits and drawbacks of the recommendations from the inventory
manager and the loss prevention manager and determine how you will use them in your own
recommendation.

STEP 3: You should find one or more additional sources to help support your recommendation.
These resources should contain information that the provided sources do not include. Additional
support and guidance is provided on Page 5.10 of the Webtext. For example, you could use a
resource that addresses how other companies have dealt with similar situations, an article that
addresses a certain aspect of your recommendation, or a relevant professional experience that
helps inform your conclusions.

STEP 4: Write a recommendation based on your sources. Your message should provide your
recommended outcome (or outcomes) and an explanation for how you arrived at your
conclusions. A template is provided on Page 5.11 in the Webtext.

Refer to the length and formatting of the inventory and loss prevention managers’ letters to guide
your work. The example letters are of varying quality, so take that into consideration when
