A network is a collection of computers and devices connected together. The internet is the worlds largest computer network. This rise in telecommunications and both wired and wireless networks has opened up the possibilities for telecommuting (working typically at home but tethered to the companys office) and teleworking (working from anywhere using mobile devices and smartphones). Studies have shown that telecommuting can actually increase a companys productivity. Teleworking that is working from anywhere comes with a potential negative cost “ the threat of always working and the parallel issue of always being available or online. The two terms (teleworking and telecommuting) are often used interchangeably although they refer to two different concepts. Here is an example: Almost all of your UMGC instructors are teleworkers. They do not have an office workspace or cubicle assigned to them at UMGC headquarters in Adelphi or Largo MD. They very rarely if ever actually visit the headquarters. Instead they work for UMGC exclusively from personal workspaces (home or at their day job spaces). On the other hand UMGC staff and administration (with some few exceptions) do have an assigned office workspace or cubicle at the Adelphi or Largo locations. They do the majority of their work on site but if allowed will occasionally (1 or more days per week) be allowed to work from home or offsite. They are telecommuters if they take advantage of this option to work outside the formal office site. 1. Would you like to have a job for which you telecommute part of a week or telework (always from a remote site) instead of going in to the office? Why or why not? 2. What are some of the advantages and disadvantages for you as the employee and for the business as the employer in having teleworking or telecommuting an accepted policy?

A key takeaway for you to always remember is that a SWOT is never done; its a living document that needs to be revisited each time you revisit your organizational strategy culture or anytime a major change is on the horizon. The day you stop worrying about what risks are looming is the day you get caught off guard much as occurred for many organizations with the recent pandemic the protests sweeping the nation and the many natural disasters occurring on a yearly basis. The same is true with opportunities. Stay attuned to your SWOT analysis so that you wont miss those golden opportunities when they arise! This is an individual assignment meaning you will do this one on your own focusing on a company of your choosing in your profession (e.g. a nursing home police unit credit card company food distributor foster care agency etc.) that has faced an ethical dilemma and significant consequences. While a SWOT Analysis is best done in a group you will do this one on your own focusing on a companys ethical dilemma and the consequences faced. Find a company of interest to you that has gone under or had extensive negative media attention due to unethical decisions (e.g. data privacy mishandling financial improprieties denials of service to people from different cultures responding to protests other social injustices etc.). You may know of a prominent organization in your field or there may be a notorious organization in your region that you would like to examine more deeply. Choose one that has enough information in the public domain for you to be able to conduct your SWOT. Use credible media sources on the organization. Then supplement these with your disciplines code of ethics and at least one scholarly peer-reviewed article from the Excelsior Library(Links to an external site.) (required) on the ethical issue represented to provide an evidence-based analysis. In addition to your code of ethics you may find it helpful to revisit previous modules and speaker sessions to identify some of the issues we have discussed thus far including codes of ethics diversity and inclusion and the multigenerational workplace. Now that you have gathered your credible source information use the SWOT Analysis template to conduct a SWOT Analysis on the decision and the alignment or misalignment of its organizational strategy (which would drive the decision) and the organizations stated values. SWOT Analysis Template (.doc) Download SWOT Analysis Template (.doc) Select three to five of each of the strengths weaknesses opportunities and threats. Do not exceed five in any one category. Once you have completed the actual SWOT Analysis provide a one-paragraph analysis summary that describes the main findings of your SWOT Analysis. Then add a 2-3 paragraph recommendation for how the organization could have leveraged the strengths and opportunities to choose a different decision”one that might abide more strongly to your disciplines code of ethics. Your SWOT Analysis should be two to three pages not including your title and reference pages. Please use current APA standards in all aspects of your SWOT Analysis assignment. Be sure to credit the sources you use to support your SWOT using both in-text citations and a reference page.
