Learning outcomes are statements that describe significant and essential learning that learners have achieved, and can reliably demonstrate at the end of the course. Learning outcomes identify what the learner will know and be able to do by the end of a course – the essential and enduring knowledge, abilities (skills) and attitudes (values, dispositions) that constitute the integrated learning needed by a graduate of this course. The learning objectives for this course summarize what you can expect to learn, and how this course is tied directly to the educational outcomes of your BBA degree.

CLA 2 - Comprehensive Learning Assessment 2 – 1, 5, 6, 7
In CLA1 you were able to identify key aspects to operations management. You presented topics such as product and service design, capacity planning and strategies to increase quality without sacrificing performance. In this assignment, we want to move towards a larger picture of the organization in terms of how internal and external processes work together as a system that round out operations management. Your job is to present an analysis that tie inputs, outputs and material requirements to planning, forecasting and supply chain management. A logistics analysis should also be presented.
Your analysis should include aspects of linear programming, various types of manufacturing models (when manufacturing products), and rely on competing internationally via the effective use of Supply Chain Management and Logistics. Your response must demonstrate your ability to think critically and to solve problems that have to do operations management and the relationship of activities involving procurement to delivery of product.
*Please refer to the Grading Criteria for Comprehensive Learning Assessments (CLAs) in the University Policies or specific guidelines and expectations.
Each CLA2 and presentation will become a part of the student’s digital portfolio. Upon completion of the program, the student’s digital portfolio will demonstrate the student’s mastery of the course and program learning objectives.
CLA2 Presentation Criteria * Only applies to BUS 325, 330, 350, 355, 378, 385, and 390*
In addition to your CLA2 report, please prepare a professional PowerPoint presentation summarizing your findings for CLA2. The presentation will consist of your major findings, analysis, and recommendations in a concise presentation of 12 slides (minimum). You should use content from your CLA2 report as material for your PowerPoint presentation. In addition, you should include learning outcomes from all your major assignments. This would include PA1, CLA1, PA2, and of course, CLA2 (unless otherwise specified by your Professor). An agenda, executive summary, and references slides should also be included. Please keep in mind that the university is moving towards a more digital footprint for our students. This means that your final CLA2 presentation may be recorded, so that you may include it in your e-portfolio (graduating students should have all of their CLA2 presentations on a flash-drive, in addition to student biography, resume, interests, etc.). Students will present their PowerPoint during the last week of class in either the On-Campus Class Session or the online Virtual Class Session, as determined by the professor. Presentations should not exceed 12 minutes.
