For this assignment, draw on all of the work we have done together throughout this term.
First, choose either Crevecoeur’s Letter or Barack Obama’s November 7, 2007 speech (“Agenda to Reclaim the American Dream”). Describe their vision of life in America in terms of both its promise and its problems. Discuss their visions of America in terms of Adams’ definition of the American Dream.
Next, choose two of the other texts we have read in the previous modules. Evaluate how the ideas, arguments, and problems presented in these texts compare to those presented by Crevecoeur or Obama. For instance, you might want to choose a text that confirms Crevecoeur’s (or Obama’s) vision of America and another text that challenges or problematizes that vision.
Finally, assess the possibilities or impossibilities of achieving the American Dream as represented in these texts and the course generally. Has the progress of American life confirmed the possibility of the American Dream, or have the persistent challenges, divisions, and conflicts shown its impossibility? What progress has been realized and what still needs to be done?
Write a 5–6 page paper in Word format (not counting title and reference page). Include an APA formatted title page and reference page.
All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources.

Imagine that you are the executive talent manager for a major global fortune 500

Imagine that you are the executive talent manager for a major global fortune 500 organization. You handle all of the Human Capital Management for the United States which has about 30,000 employees. You have built strong internal relationships with all of the North American business lines. Each business line has an executive head that has approached you with concerns about the workforce. The executive heads are having a difficult time keeping track of the talent that exists in their business line and the supply versus demand that will be needed in the future in regards to their workforce. They are also concerned about how they will attract and retain talent when needed. You offer them a solution that blends talent management with Human Resources Information Systems. Read the two (2) articles listed below:      • “Integrating talent management and core HR systems valuable but tricky,” located at http://searchfinancialapplications.techtarget.com/feature/Integrating-talent-management-and-core-HR-systems-valuable-but-tricky.     • “Effective Recruiting, Staffing and Applicant Tracking in a high turnover Environment: Filling seats in a demanding work environment,” located at http://www.hrvillage.com/human-resources/applicant-tracking.htm.      How would you explain to each executive your plan of integrating talent management with an HRIS so that they have line of sight for the talent that exists in their business? In addition to addressing this to each Executive head, suggest two (2) challenges that may arise from this plan. Then, describe three (3) benefits of integrating talent management with HRIS.

You have been hired by XYZ as a management consultant. They are a non-union company; however, they are currently facing a union organizing campaign. You have been asked to write a briefing memo for senior management. Your memo must address:
1. What are the basic differences, from the employer’s viewpoint, in operating in a union-free environment vs. a unionized environment? (In other words, the managers of this company do not have experience working as a manager in a union workplace. What might change with a collective bargaining contract?)
2. What are management representatives permitted to say and do during the campaign? What, if any, actions or statements by management are prohibited?
3. What are possible ramifications of manager actions that are not permitted?
4. What are illegal union behaviors that management must identify?
5. What factors must management consider in deciding on whether or not they will conduct an anti-union campaign?
In responding, you must use three references. They should be from a scholarly journal or credible news source preferably  not older than five years.

The following comments are based on the most frequent errors made by students. 

This paper is to be completed as a memo. This means you will use a memo format such as: TO: FROM: DATE: SUBJECT:
This is a memo to management. It addresses management issues. 
You are a management consultant with a contract to educate and prepare management staff for a union campaign. This is not a memo to union members. You are not advising employees. 
Create your management consultant company name and introduce yourself to your intended audience.
Remember, your advice to management personnel will guide their decision making and behavior during a campaign for union election.

Please make certain that you respond to each question completely. Visualize yourself presenting this to supervisors, managers and board members who have no experience with employee campaigns for unionization.
