Group Case Project Instructions
The Group Case Project will be a demonstration of your mastery of collaborative writing skills. A case will be selected from your Ferrell et al. textbook. You will be assigned to a group, and your group will collaborate on the development of your ethics-based Group Case Project on the Group Discussion Board Forums. A group will normally consist of 3–4 individuals.
During Module/Week 2, each group will be designated by the instructor and will begin reviewing and discussing the organizational process of developing the case project. The questions at the end of the case will form the basis of the group research paper. Each group must select a leader for the project and determine the role of each group member. Only the group leader will submit the outline under “Course Tools/SafeAssign.” The outline will specify the determined roles of the group members as well as the sections of the paper that will be developed. The outline must be detailed.
Generally, each member of the group takes a section of the paper; the leader then brings all the sections together and performs final editing before submitting the final, single paper. Only the group leader will submit the final paper under “Course Tools/SafeAssign.” Each participant must email the instructor his or her contribution to the paper as evidence of participation.
As this is a paper that requires research, it must be written in the third person. All 7 sources must be of a scholarly nature; acceptable sources include either textbooks or journal articles from peer-reviewed journals. The final paper must be 5–7 pages.
Note: It is required that each member of the group will participate in the Group Case Project. Failure to participate in the group processes will result in a penalty from the group score.

Submit the Group Case Project – Final via SafeAssign by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of Module/Week 6.
