IMPORTANT DIRECTIONS: By the deadline on your syllabus schedule, upload your preliminary proposal in the appropriate folder in Resources for the entire class to read. Bring a copy to me on Monday, October 5. Make sure that the subject line is appropriately specific and descriptive. E.g., "Reducing turnover at UPS 82nd St. Hub" (NOT the name of the assignment).
