Management in Relational Development Capstone Project

As their capstone project in the Management in Relational Development degree, students develop a strategic plan to implement something in their organization. In order to embed the Christian practices of community and service into their thinking and planning, I had them evaluate their research and planning through the lens of a biblical worldview. There were 3 specific areas they were to address:

1. Evaluate their resources in their literature review with specific questions focused on authority, audience, and point of view.

2. Ask whether the plan would cause employees to compromise their christian faith, or infringe upon their religious rights.

3. Evaluate their SOT Analysis to see if there were any opportunities for Christian service within the plan, or threats to Christian practice because of it.
