As a class, we will create a Who’s Who board of experts from the field of organizational theory and organizational behavior. Each student will write one biography report and submit it for the instructor and peers to read.
In this assignment, you are required to use MS Word to write a report about a famous person in the world of organizational theory or organizational behavior. You will choose your person from the list provided in the lecture notes. You can expand your search from the list if you find someone interesting as an expert in the field (professor, doctor, public speaker, etc.) Be sure their expertise is in organizational theory or organizational behavior. Look at their credentials and work experience to verify their expertise. Use Wikipedia.org website or other biography sources for the person. You will take notes on the person as you conduct the research and write a biography report to submit for a grade.
Please follow the steps below to prepare your biography report.

Choose a person known for their work in organizational theory or organizational behavior from Wikipedia.org, Google search engines, or hard copy sources such as magazines, journal articles, documentaries, or books (the source does not need to be scholarly but it needs to be informative and true to the best of your judgment).
