You will need to complete three actions:
Determine if you want to approve or disapprove the loan guarantee. As a member of the loan committee, you do NOT want to see the guarantee have to be exercised by Nor-Cal because the applicant has defaulted on the loan. You must clearly state whether you plan to approve or disapprove the loan guarantee (5 points).
Document your complete 5M analysis as to why you either would approve or disapprove the loan guarantee. In essence, it should be clear to me why you would approve/disapprove the guarantee from a motivation, marketing, money, manufacturing, and management perspective. You need to clearly cite, from the case, your rationale in each of the five evaluative areas. Clearly label your rationale in each area for the maximum points (80 points).
We are in post-COVID19 circumstances, where it may be a good time to continue with such a business or pivot. Taking the current situation for restaurants into consideration, please indicate how your previous decision to approve/disapprove the loan guarantee changes in this post-COVID19 environment. Cite/explain which key 5M factors would drive your pivot notation (15 points).
Feel free to provide evidence, in the form of citations from the case or independent research, that substantiates your funding determination.

Summarize the leadership theory most aligned with this leader. Describe two specific leadership skills, two specific leadership behaviors, and two specific leadership traits of this leader.
Compare this leader’s approach or style to one of the leadership theories discussed in this course.
Explain why this leadership style or approach has been successful for this leader and make logical arguments supporting your case. Support your analysis with direct quotes from class texts.

Step 1:**** Just a heads up im a business major.
Research one or more graduate programs that you would select if you decided to pursue a graduate degree.
Search for and identify which key attributes those programs look for in people they admit to their graduate programs.
Graduate programs differ in which attributes are most attractive among work experience, academic achievement, history of service, writing skills, reasoning and analytical skills, leadership skills, socio/emotional skills, business acumen, community involvement, subject matter expertise, quantitative skills, financial and economic literacy, STEM background, and many others.
Some graduate programs receive hundreds (and even thousands) of applications even though they may only admit less than 10 of the applicants.
Learning how competitive your application could be if you emphasize the right attributes and not others is critically important to the writing of effective letters of recommendations (LORs).
Imagine how you would like one of your favorite college professors to write a letter of recommendation for you based on your research findings.
Using that imagination, write the One-Page letter that you believe best conveys the several attributes that your selected graduate program(s) cares most about.
Place this letter on a blank page (not on letterhead). Include Date and Recipient, but do not include signature. Include at the beginning of your letter the name of the specific graduate program the letter would be written to. Repeat this program name at the end of your letter.
Step 2: Using a similar process write a second LOR for an employment search in business field

For your understanding I need the methodology part of my Master Thesis. I conducted 7 semi structured , in-depth interviews with 7 Startup founders in order to asked them question about their CSR Strategies. (Find the question below). Please write a methodology based on this conducted interviews and questions in focus on the research question and hypothesis.
1. Research Strategie ( here you can introduce you overall approach)
-qualitative research (also secondary data in advanced)
– semi-structured questions
– 7 in- depth interviews with Startup founders
Research Question:
o To what extent do Startups benefit from CSR as compared to companies who don´t give importance to CSR?
· Hypotheses:
· Hypothesis 1: Socially conscious startups are more likely to be successful than traditional ones.
· · Hypothesis 2: There’s no link between the sector a startup is operating in and its commitment to doing good in the world.
· · Hypothesis 3: In order to make a company more appealing to investors, CSR is an important strategy for new businesses.
What are the criteria for validity and reliability in this type of research?
2. DATA COLLECTION METHODE
Questions for in depth interviews
Describe how the interviews were conducted and why you ask these questions as well as what output you hoped to get.
1. What is the importance of CSR for you/your company? What kind of measures are you already implementing? What positive effects do your measures have?
2. Does CSR have a significant impact on your company’s performance?
3. Do people applying for jobs with you pay attention to social activities of the employer and a sustainable and environmentally friendly business model?
4. How have you implemented social responsibility in your company? As a founder, did you try to implement sustainability in each of your major decisions or did you hire people to take care of this area from the beginning?
5. CSR is an attractive factor in the marketing area and of course for the environment and future, however CSR measures also cost money. For startups, profitability should be the first priority in order to compete in the market as well as to survive in the long run. Were there CSR measures that cost you more than they benefited you or did you have to do without something?
6. Do you think that companies that establish CSR in their corporate structures are more successful in the end than those that do not? Or if you don’t establish it, are more likely to fail in the future? Or is it just a momentary trend that many companies are taking advantage of to gain prestige?
7. How do investors benefit from corporate social responsibility? Has Establishing CSR helped you in your search for investors?
Qualitative methode was that the interviews were transcribed and then thematic analysis was conducted.
3. Evaluate and justify your methodological choices
Your methodology should make the case for why you chose these particular methods, especially if you did not take the most standard approach to your topic. Discuss why other methods were not suitable for your objectives, and show how this approach contributes new knowledge or understanding.

You are required to utilize the knowledge and skills gained through the module t

You are required to utilize the knowledge and
skills gained through the module to generate an idea for a ‘new’ venture,
evaluate its possibility for ‘success’ and reflect on your learning. This
could be for a business or social enterprise.
Note: There may also be an opportunity to develop a
‘new’ business unit within an existing organization or start-up. However,
this must be discussed and agreed upon with the tutor in advance and relate to
a business the student is working in or on.
This will require you to:
·
Use
appropriate frameworks discussed during the module to generate potential
‘business’ ideas.
·
Develop
one of those into a potential ‘business’ opportunity and present it in the form
of a ‘Lean
Canvas’ (Links to an external site.).
·
Apply
appropriate approaches to ‘Research’ the potential opportunity and re-evaluate
your original ‘Lean Canvas’, with a clear indication of whether it is feasible.
·
Critically
evaluate the ‘Lean Start Up Approach’ (Links to an external site.) and reflect on what you have learnt about
successful entrepreneurship and innovation. In doing so consider what other
factors are critical beyond the ‘Lean Start Up’ Approach.
