MGMT1 UCirvine Entrepreneurship Discussion Forum

I need you write two posts and each one about 300 words.

Discussion Forum: Week 2

OK, so the material this week is a bit diverse covering topics like forms of business ownership, entrepreneurship and the small business sector, the nuts and bolts of production and operations management and the role of technology in business. Here are some suggested topics for you to discuss (but again – I encourage you to initiate your own topics):

  • Do you think YOU have what it takes to be an entrepreneur? Have you ever thought about starting your own business? Do you know somebody who has?
  • What are your opinions about the importance of the small business sector? Can small business survive in the long run? Have some businesses become “too big to fail?”
  • Would you be interested in operations management? Why, why not? Ford Motor Company promises that “Quality is Job #1.” What does “quality” mean to you, and I’m not just talking about cars.
  • Finally: technology, especially the internet and the world wide web, has changed the way business is done. Can you give some examples? How has technology impacted your own life? Can you imagine going a whole week WITHOUT USING GOOGLE? 🙂

Here is the requirment of the discussion forum

What is the purpose of the discussion forum and how will I be


The main purpose of the weekly discussion forum is for students to ENGAGE WITH EACH OTHER in

meaningful and respectful discussions. Each week, I will suggest a few topics to discuss even though I

would much rather see you come up with topics that YOU would enjoy discussing with each other. To

keep the discussions manageable, we assign each student to a group of about 15 students.

PARTICIPATION in these weekly discussion foums is also an important part of your grade. Here are the

guidelines that we use to grade you:

 We expect at least two posts/replies each week. To spread the posts out over the week, we

expect each student to have AT LEAST ONE POST/REPLY BY WEDNESDAY NIGHT and then AT LEAST ONE


 Your posts/replies in each of these two time periods (Mon – Wed, Thurs – Sun) will be graded as


o 0 POINTS: You fail to make a post/reply on time.

o 1 POINT: You write a few sentences that are not terribly original and appear to be written

to fulfill the requirement.

o 2 POINTS: You write a substantial post/reply (exceeding two or three sentences) that

outlines an interesting idea, contributes in meaningful ways to the group discussion and

that is well written.

 Therefore the MAXIMUM that you can achieve each week is 4 POINTS.

 While each discussion forum will stay open beyond the deadline of your posts/replies (so that

you can continue your discussions if you wish), we will ignore any posts after Sunday of a given
