BUS 372 Module 7 Assignment Event Rundown

BUS 372 Module 7 Assignment Event Rundown

Successful event execution requires specific planning and scheduling related to the event day activities. Knowing the order of events, event duration, and what must happen before, during, and after the event will assist you with in correctly assigning volunteers and managing the event-related activities.

Using what you learned from the Topic Materials, create an event rundown and related handouts. Your rundown should include pre-event setup, all event phases and activities, and post-event tear down and cleanup. A sample “Event Rundown” template has been included and can be modified to meet the needs of your event. Additionally, include specific handouts related to the execution of your event, particularly if they will be used to direct participant action (i.e., clinic schedule, tournament bracket). Use the event rundown and related handouts to execute your event.

The event rundown and related handouts should be submitted by the end of Topic 7.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.

You are not required to submit this assignment to Turnitin.

BUS 372 Module 7 Assignment 2 Stakeholder Interviews

Due Date: Jul 23, 2017 23:59:59       Max Points: 100


The purpose of this assignment is for you to talk with two event stakeholders such as participants, volunteers, sponsors, or community members to learn about their experiences associated with the sports related event you have selected. You may ask the event coordinator to recommend specific stakeholders for interviews or you may conduct the interviews on your own as part of your involvement in the event. When conducting the interviews, be sure to tell interviewees the information will be used as part of a course project and that you will not use their names or identifying information in your assignment. You will use the information gained from the interviews as part of your evaluation of the event planning process and execution.

The questions on the “Stakeholder Interviews” handout can be used as a guide as you conduct your interview. Submit the interview questions and responses to your instructor using a Word document. Be sure to indicate the role of each person interviewed (i.e. participant, volunteer, sponsor, or community member, etc.) for this part of the project. You do not need to include the stakeholders’ names or identifying information about them.

 Whether you are conducting your interview in person or via the telephone or some other means of media, please remember that you are considered a guest. The stakeholder has taken time out of his or her schedule to honor your request. As a result, please maintain professional behavior at all times as a representative of Grand Canyon University (GCU).

If meeting in person away from the event, including a teleconference with camera:

Dress in professional business attire and be neat in appearance. Request feedback from others if uncertain about acceptable attire and appearance befitting the interview.

  1. Identify exact time and location of the meeting. Plan to arrive between 10-15 minutes prior to the scheduled start.
  2. Have supplies available to take notes during the meeting.
  3. Be prepared to introduce yourself by name and as a GCU student.
  4. Remember to smile and display a positive disposition.
  5. Be respectful and considerate during the meeting. Turn cell phone off or leave it behind. Read each question carefully and be sure to make appropriate eye contact. Allow sufficient time for a response and be sure not to talk over the person you interview. Once the interview is completed, thank him/her for his/her time.
