Strategic Human Resource Management: electronic usage policy

I need help with this research paper. Please annotate your references.

You have been directed by your corporate or organizational president to research one of the following situations/problems and prepare a formalized research paper or executive memorandum. This memorandum or paper (add a transmittal letter if a research paper format is used) should be addressed to the president, board of directors, and your professor. For this research, you should conduct a review of literature based on the current practices being used in today's organizations (in terms of your selected research problem/situation).

For your research project, please select one of the following problem or situational areas to research. As you conduct your secondary and/or primary research, you should also develop a well-developed strategy as to how to implement your strategy into this organization. One way to view the selected problem is to think of a current or previous organization, in which you might focus your research efforts towards. For example, you may be facing the same problem in your current organization - so you could write this paper, based on addressing this particular problem with your current organization. If you do not see the relevance of any of these problems with your current or past employers - just write your paper as if you were employed with a Fortune 500 company or an organization currently in the news.

My potential problems or a situation that I have chosen is: Creation and implementation of an electronic usage (i.e., email, computer, or other computer technology) policy to be used in the organization.

GUIDELINES:

1. Paper should be written in third person - not first person.
2. The paper must contain the following elements:
a. Problem Statement (5-8 sentence paragraph that clearly defines the problem and why it needs to be researched).
b. Review of current practices (background of literature) in the area
c. Strategic plan for change or creation of the anticipated change (use examples of where this approach has been successful in other organizations if pertinent).
d. Strategic approach for implementation of the change(s)
e. Final recommendations and possible outcomes (best and worst case scenarios)
f. Summary/Conclusions
g. References section
h. Appendix (if tables or charts or necessary)

I'll assist with this research paper by giving you some things to think about as you pull your paper together. Since you have chosen the implementation of an electronic usage (i.e., email, computer, or other computer technology) policy to be used in the organization I would recommend you use your current place of employment to figure out how to implement the strategy. Then you can use other companies as examples from your research to make it work.

How to implement your strategy into this organization

a. Problem Statement: You will need/want to be specific about what problem area you are trying to fix with your published guidelines. With electronic usage one published guideline could cover email, internet, cell phone and thumb drive use. On the other hand, you may want to limit this particular policy to just one form of media to make the policy specific enough. Many of the forms of media overlap but there are different issues involved with one form of media versus another. For instance, the thumb drive media is a new one that has been added in the last few months at my company. There are issues dealing with security and the possible transmission of viruses just like the issue with email media. Do you want people using thumb ...
