Thesis • Your paper “proves” a thesis, a one or two sentence statement of your central idea. The thesis is usually placed at the end of the first paragraph, immediately after you introduce the topic. Although the thesis appears early in the paper, it is usually written late in the writing process, after you form your ideas and gather your supporting evidence. • Body • The body of your paper contains the evidence (specific examples and application) to support your thesis. • State viewpoints that oppose yours as effectively as you state your own. Remember HEAP--Honest Evaluation of Alternate Positions. Conclusion • The conclusion is the last chance the writer has to connect with the reader. A conclusion summarizes the paper’s main points with a sense of closure and completeness. • Summarize and/or conclude your paper in a way that helps the reader evaluate whether or not you did what you said you would do. Do not introduce any new material. Include a “killer” statement in the conclusion that leaves no doubt in the reader’s mind that you prove your thesis. Summarize the main ideas of the specific thesis and apply the main ideas of the body to the “bigger picture.” Help the reader by......

Oecd Guidlines

... The OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises (the Guidelines) are recommendations addressed by governments to multinational enterprises. They provide voluntary principles and standards for responsible business conduct consistent with applicable laws. The Guidelines aim to ensure that the operations of these enterprises are in harmony with government policies, to strengthen the basis of mutual confidence between enterprises and the societies in which they operate, to help improve the foreign investment climate and to enhance the contribution to sustainable development made by multinational enterprises. I. Concepts and Principles 1. The Guidelines are recommendations jointly addressed by governments to multinational enterprises. Observance of the Guidelines by enterprises is voluntary and not legally enforceable. 2. Since the operations of multinational enterprises extend throughout the world, international co-operation in this field should extend to all countries. 3. A precise definition of multinational enterprises is not required for the purposes of the Guidelines. These usually comprise companies or other entities established in more than one country and so linked that they may co-ordinate their operations in various ways. While one or more of these entities may be able to exercise a significant influence over the activities of others, their degree of autonomy within the enterprise may vary widely from one multinational enterprise to another.

...A Guide to Case Analysis Hult International Business School Professor Jim Prost San Francisco Campus The purpose of this guide is to help you maximize your learning when using case studies. It outlines some key issues that will help you learn from the case analysis method. In most graduate courses, students use cases from actual companies to practice strategic analysis and to gain some experience in the task of creating and implementing strategy. A case describes, in a factual manner, the events and organizational circumstances surrounding a particular managerial problem. It’s as if the reader is inside the organization (at the time the case was written) and has most, if not all, relevant information, facts, and circumstances. The student’s role in case analysis is to diagnose and evaluate the situation described in the case. You then develop recommendations, supporting arguments, and the appropriate action steps that should be taken to rectify the problem presented in the case. After reading this guide, you will be able to: * Understand what a case study is * Appreciate the benefits of using case studies in the learning of strategic management and how their use can help develop your managerial skills * Use the key steps in analyzing case studies * Apply theoretical concepts and frameworks to the case material The case approach to strategic analysis is an exercise in “learning by doing.” Because cases provide you with detailed information......

GENERAL GUIDELINES • • • • • • • • • (JB Aug 2012) Be specific and give examples to justify the points that you make. Request a CV or personal statement for additional information. This can inform your writing and enable you to be specific e.g. refer to anecdotes that back up points about a student's personality and ability. Raise the issue of references with students in class early in the academic year and clarify your / the Department's procedure for dealing with references. One page of a typewritten A4 page is generally sufficient - but do try to write more than one paragraph!. Students should inform you of the job(s) or course(s) they are applying for. The reader of the letter wishes to get to know the person better and you can tailor your give evidence of relevant skills, knowledge or experiences. If the letter is going to be negative, or overly bland, then tell the student who requests it in advance. The request may then be withdrawn. Some writers suggest that you avoid the gushing letter that only has positives to say and encourage you to write briefly about a weakness/area for development as it will give balance to the letter. Either way be comfortable with what you say. You can also follow the letter with a phone call. Do not substitute a telephone reference for a written one if that is what is......

...GAPS Guidelines GAP.17.5.0 A Publication of Global Asset Protection Services LLC PULP AND PAPER MANUFACTURING INTRODUCTION The modern pulp and paper mill is a complex, high-valued facility. To operate profitably under today’s environmental constraints, a mill must efficiently integrate steam and power demands and chemical recovery systems with the pulp and paper processes. Computer control of all mill processes is the norm. Each step in papermaking — from raw material storage, through stock preparation and papermaking, to finished roll storage — presents special loss prevention challenges. Storage areas pose severe fire loss potentials. Fires, explosions and machinery breakdowns can seriously damage critical process equipment. Pollution control equipment can also cause large losses. Associated with these high property damage potentials are even higher business interruption potentials. In a full process Kraft mill, loss of the black liquor recovery boiler (BLRB) can result in extensive downtime. Continuous digesters and Yankee dryers can also present very large business interruption potentials. This GAPS Guideline describes “full process” pulp and paper mills. Full process mills include pulp, paper and finishing mills, and sometimes converting mills. Figure 1 shows a simplified process flow diagram for a full process mill. Many of the processes described in this section also apply to mills that are not full process. PROCESSES AND HAZARDS Woodyard......
