Many of the rules and procedures from your lab are designed to reflect the business environment. Choose 5 of the Business Operations Principles below, and describe in 2-3 sentences how you see evidence of this concept in your lab setting:
A. Marketing/Publicity. If you offer a service to the school or the public, how do you market this and let people know? How do you keep people interested in using those services? If not, how do you encourage new students to the class, and show how it will benefit their future?
B. Finance. How are costs controlled and payments made to your lab managed? What rules or procedures help control costs (supply management)?
C. Production. What does your instructor do to ensure products and services are at a high enough level of quality and consistency over time? How is low production addressed?
D. Distribution. How do you ensure your product or service goes out to customers (or other recipients) in a timely and economic manner?
E. Research and development. What does your lab do to stay up on new ideas and technology? How do you make sure your services, processes stay up with the competition?
F. Regulation. Who provides feedback on how your lab operates? What people (positions) or agencies have a say in what happens in your lab? What rules exist to avoid regulatory issues?
G. Labor. How does your instructor reward good performance and encourage improved performance on your tasks? What type of training and support is offered?
Can't change a rubric once you've started using it.
