  Final Group Project 80 group points Due October 9 Format for Final Project: The project is a presentation in the form of a voice-over PowerPoint or Prezi. I will evaluate your presentation on how well you fulfill the requirements below. Early on, you should assign someone in the group to be sure that all requirements are covered. Using this page as a checklist would be efficient. POINTS:    The 80 points for this assignment are for the group, so all members of the group will receive the same number of points for the submitted project.    There are also 10 individual points that will depend on how well you contribute to the group work this semester, so make sure to be present and engaged, attend all group meetings, and help each other out.    Your presentation will also be viewed and voted on by other students in this class. The 3 presentations voted as the best by the class will each receive 3 bonus points.    See below for individual bonus  points. REQUIREMENTS: The group submission should be about 10-20 Prezi spots or PowerPoint slides. Be sure you are logical and organized.    The presentation should engage the viewer and be aesthetically pleasing.    Be sure it sufficiently covers all of the points of the assignment; don’t get hung up on one aspect and neglect another.    Introduce the team members and their qualifications — you can use your imaginations and project into your successful future to define your qualifications.    Each member must contribute to the audio.    Identify yourself when appropriate; pictures of team members are encouraged.    Accurately define in your own words what you have set out to find. Talk about your findings, don’t read the slides.      Include the best information team members found in their research for articles about the major issue.     Give relevant and timely information about specific competitors in the field you are looking at.    Include information about the market and industry.    Give a recommendation based on your findings and tell why you are making this recommendation.    Be judicious in what you choose to include to support your recommendation.    Use in-text citations to back up all statistics, statements of facts, and findings taken from published reports. All cited research must be relevant and selected from the sources used in the supporting individual assignments-- library databases, professional associations, etc.    Use at least   6 resources from the library databases we studied this semester.

Questions? ASK! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Chocolate Big Sweety manufactures a variety of hard and chewable candies that are popular regionally. The CEO, Mr. King, is considering expanding into the chocolate business. He is a big sweetie but he knows the chocolate industry is extremely competitive and he is methodical when it comes to making business decisions. He has hired your team to help with this project. You are charged with finding answers and making a recommendation. He wants your team to investigate some specific issues.    He knows from experience that the cost of shipping can be greater than the cost of the product so he wants to know about the current research into distribution.

Mr. King needs to know if there is adequate demand and who the target customers will be. He wants to know what the key trends are that would influence his business.    Mr. King also has to know how other companies are doing in the chocolate business. Are they profitable? Do small companies succeed? If the outlook is positive, he especially wants to know if they should acquire a company that exists or if they should start their own line. It is your team’s job to present a summary of the situation and a recommen dation to Mr. King. You will be expected to present the following: 1.   Introduction of the team and your qualifications. 2.   Clear statement of the problem. 3.   Summary of product distribution research. 4.   Intelligence about competitors and their products and activities. 5.   Information about the market: Size & overview of the market.
