Option 1) The  graphic design shop where you work as the account manager is doing well.  Just last year the owner hired three new designers and a receptionist,  bringing the total number of employees to 14. But with growth comes  certain headaches, and one of them is figuring out how to regulate  employees’ Internet use. Currently, employees can download anything they  want from the Internet and view any website they wish.
The owner’s  IT person has alerted him to several problems. One is that the designers  are downloading any and all software that they think sounds “cool” –  even software in beta versions that sill have a lot of kinks. As a  result, their computers lock up or malfunction and the IT person has to  spend hours troubleshooting the problem to get it resolved.
Two,  there is concern over what Internet sites employees are viewing,  specifically those that are inappropriate for the workplace. Overall,  the IT person is worried about security breaches resulting from these  downloads, inappropriate website visits, and other Internet activities.
It’s  time for a policy to be developed governing Internet-use and your boss  things you’re just the person to help write it. Your assignment is to  study the current wisdom on the workplace Internet policies and send  your findings to your boss and the IT person as a short report,  including a proposed Internet-use policy that might be implemented.
Option 2)  As a Senior Buyer as Darcy’s, a national department store, Sasha Warner  manages the buyers in the eastern U.S. region. You’re currently working  under her as a sale co-op student. She drops by your office to chat one  day and brings up a subject she’s been wondering about. “Do you know  anything about Skype?” she asks. You nod, having used this online  international phone service yourself. “I heard it’s totally free and  really easy to use, she continues, “so I’m thinking about recommending  that all my buyers subscribe to it. Then maybe they could talk to each  other and to international designers and merchandisers more easily. Is  there any downside? Maybe security issues?” You’re not sure–but you  offer to look into the matter for her.
Do the necessary research and,  if you haven’t done so, try this service yourself. Then, write Sasha a  report that gives her the information she needs to decide whether or not  to pursue this idea further. She may want to share your report with  other managers in the company so be sure you give it your best effort.
Option 3)  You work for the owner of three local coffee and tea shops, one of  which opened a few months ago. The newest one has already developed  quite a nice, regular clientele, mostly those in or near the  neighborhood who want an alternative to the big-coffee-chain experience,  but your boss things its sales need a bump. She is considering holding  an in-store promotion at the coffee shop – her first ever. Since she  knows you’re an Internet whiz, she turns to you for help. “How do you  run one of these events?” she wants to know. “How much do they cost? Are  they worth the effort and expense? What are the options? Do such  promotions have lasting effects? How can I maximize the results?”
You  turn to the internet and find a lot of great stuff about in-store  promotions, so much, in fact, that you decide to present your findings  to your boss in writing. Tell her what she needs and wants to know in a  clear, well organized report. Having the information in writing will  also be helpful if she wants to share it with other employees. Be sure  she can go to your sources and read more if she wants to.
Option 4)  Many managers today are realizing that there really is something  distinctive about “Gen Y,” or “Millennial,” employees (the children of  “baby boomers” – who were themselves children of the World War II  generation). Find a real client or invent a realistic company to use as  your client. Then review the literature on Gen Y employees and write  your client a report in which you describe the distinctive traits of  this segment of the workforce and recommend ways to recruit, manage, and  retain them.
Option 5) Your company does not offer  flexible spending accounts (FSAs) for its employees. Your boss wonders  if your company (you pick the name) should. Are FSAs a good idea for  businesses and employees? Prepare a report for your boss in which you  analyze the advantages and disadvantages of FSAs so that she can decide  whether to offer FSAs to your employees.
