Instructions for Executive Interview Please note the instructions on page 4 of the syllabus for the Executive Interview. The following instructions will further explain the project. In order to receive the full 25 points for the project, you must tape record your interview with your chosen manager and turn in that tape along with your executive summary and transcript. Beginning on page 2 is an example of the Executive Interview. This is the format that you must use. The executive summary, which describes the company of the chosen manager, must be at least two pages in length, 12-point font, Times New Roman script, one-inch margins, double-spaced. Your spelling, grammar, and punctuation must be error free to receive the full 30 points. Your vocabulary or word choice must be businesslike in tone as well. The transcript should follow the executive summary as in the attached example. You must use the exact form in the example. Bold the author’s questions as in the example. Do not bold the managers replies. The transcript must be at least five pages in length, 12-point font, Times New Roman script, one-inch margins, double-spaced. Therefore, you must turn in a project of at least 7 pages in length. You may exceed seven pages. You must ask the questions listed as Executive Interview Elicitation Questions. These questions have been posted in Blackboard since the beginning of the semester. If you do not use these questions, you will not receive the full 25 points for the project. Additionally, as you do the interview you can add additional questions. Sometimes, respondents give short, one-word answers. If this occurs, you must ask the question again, re-phrase the question, and ask again. 1

Do not be shy because the project depends on this. You must get the respondent to talk for at least five pages. The only exception to the list of questions, the Executive Interview Elicitation Questions, is the family business section. If you find that the business is not a family business, you may skip questions 2 through 5 in this section only. The questions used in the Jackson Interview serve as an example only of the form you are to use, not the content. Please note that you must inform me in writing of your manager choice for the interview by Thursday, October 27. The complete report is due Tuesday, November 15. I will not accept reports after this date. 2

Tugboats on the Mississippi: A Conversation with Jack Jackson Dr. John James Cater III Nicholls State University April 26, 2007 Executive Summary Baton Rouge Coal and Towing Company, founded by Joshua (J.C.) Werner, Sr. in 1902, was a river steamboat and barge operation. The company originally serviced steamboats that used coal for fuel on the Mississippi River. The coal was mined in the Pittsburgh area, loaded on barges, transported down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers by stern-wheel steamboats, and then stored along the river banks. Finally, the coal was put on barges to directly supply river steamboats or used for residential and other commercial activities around Baton Rouge.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
