COM 510 Business Communications Week 11 Discussion 1

Business Finance

Describe your experience in this course. How have you evolved as a communicator?

  • How has your thought process changed in regard to communications?
  • Which part of the communications process was most helpful in becoming more purposeful and strategic?
  • How are you communicating differently in the workplace?
  • Are you more confident as an MBA-level communicator?
  • How do you plan to continue growing as a communicator?

Rate your communication progress and note how it has changed from your week 1 and week 6 rating?

  • Novice: You tend to “wing it” when communicating. Your messages seldom achieve your desired goals.
  • Intermediate: Your communications are sometimes effective, but you lack an established process for communicating (and you aren’t actively testing your methods).
  • Proficient: You apply some tools and techniques of communications and, while you may do so inconsistently, you are fairly effective when you communicate.
  • Distinguished: You are considered highly professional. You regularly influence outcomes through communications and you are highly communications-oriented.
  • Expert: You have extensive experience in business communications, are well-versed in the topic, and can influence goals strategically while driving action with your messaging.

Earthquakes present a major exposure to business. A severe earthquake can result in significant damage to business property and business disruption.

  • What areas of the United States are most prone to earthquake losses?
  • Identify and evaluate building construction techniques that can reduce the cost of earthquake losses?
  • Are there other loss control steps that can be taken by society to reduce the cost of earthquake damage and resulting loss of business income?
  • Present a proposed loss control program for earthquake loss prevention and reduction. Make sure you identify what steps or programs you recommend and explain who will implement these steps or programs and how they will be implemented?
  • Explain how your program should be funded and how the benefits of your program justify your proposed expenditures.
