As you enter the elevator at your workplace, you discover that you–and you alone–are there with the President of the company. Although you have met only twice before, she remembers your name. As you are on your way up 40 floors (and the elevator will not stop before then because she used her special key), she asks: “How are things going in your unit?” Later she asks, “How are you getting along with your supervisor?” How do you respond to these questions? Support your answer.
Review the Final Portfolio instructions found in Week Five. This assignment will require you to assess your concept of self, your communication skills, strengths and weaknesses, challenges, and opportunities for growth. The draft should address the issues listed in the assignments that have been covered through the first three weeks of this class.
The draft must be three to four pages in length (excluding title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style. The draft must contain an introduction with thesis statement, at least three body paragraphs, and a conclusion. Identify at least four theories or models of communication you have studied in the course, and apply them to the forms of communication as noted in the Final Portfolio instructions in Week Five (Interpersonal Communication, Group Communications, and Organizational Communications).

We are supposed to analyze a product, we chose to do an Apple Maps (with the missing features Google Maps incorporates ie. multistop route, bike routes, terrain). There is trouble with writing up the technical feasibility analysis (supposed to be 500 +/- words), if you could please help with this. I’ve included group notes on our ideas. Below is the criteria that much be written on (roughly 150 words each):
Technical feasibility (Can we build it?)
Familiarity with functional area
Familiarity with technology
Premise: integrate various user-friendly and preferred functionalities from similar services to develop a more cohesive and popular product, without ‘crowding’ the user-interface.
Why we chose: underrated, product has great reach (pre-installed on apple products within certain software versions), has pre-existing ability to support added functionalities (i.e. solid platform and existing data)
Ideas for functional requirements: make the app more intelligible, a ‘one-stop-shop’ style app. I.e. could plan an entire day’s activities in one place (transport updates, sight-seeing activities, real-time business promotions displayed)
Real-time traffic data
Separate tabs for different functionalities (to avoid interface clutter)
Inbuilt business promotions (i.e. route to a location displays coffee/food deals along the way)
Nightlife feature (live feed from bars/clubs displaying drink deals, DJ/bands performing, how many people are there; especially topical given new lock out laws)
Live feed of pop-up events, ‘what’s on’
Accurate data/route options
Real-time geo-tracking (high speed)
Mobile and desktop optimisation
Low technicality (app is used by a variety of age groups)
Multi-lingual, locations’ names aren’t translated
it looks like it cut out the beginning of my message: We are supposed to analyze a product, we chose to do an Apple Maps (with the missing features Google Maps incorporates ie. multistop route, bike routes, terrain). There is trouble with writing up the technical feasibility analysis (supposed to be 500 +/- words), if you could please help with this. I’ve included group notes on our ideas.
