Business Discussion 1


Each module’s Discussion Forum in this class has two topics – one for the first week and another for the second.

In the Module 1 Discussion Forum be sure to post your responses using the background material, including the reading and video on the Job Characteristics Model. Here is a shorter synopsis of that material:

Louis, D. J. (2016) Notes on the Job Characteristics Model.

In Week 1, consider a job you have held that you did NOT find motivating. What job characteristics were missing? Look at another student’s post and suggest some ways that a manager could redesign that job to enhance one or more job characteristics and increase the motivating properties of that job. When someone has posted to your original job characteristics, go back and comment on whether or not the suggested changes would have made you feel more motivated. Why or why not?

(Besides the source listed above, introduce and cite at least one other source of information for your initial post.)

Remember, after you submit your answer to the Discussion this week, you also need to respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts.

(In total for this module’s two-part Discussion you should have contributed to at least two Discussion Question posts and four response posts to your classmates.)

You MUST participate in BOTH Week 1 and Week 2 Discussions to get credit for this module’s Discussion.

Posting early each week will allow for more opportunities for leading the discussions, making substantial contributions, and engaging in meaningful and mutual discussions with others.
