Just as the human body needs
to accomplish certain activities to live and maintain health, companies need to
engage in primary business activities to survive – and thrive. In this LAP,
students will discover the core business activities of financial analysis,
human resources management, information management, marketing, operations, and
strategic management. Students will also learn about the interdependence of
these activities as well as how they shift and adapt during changing
LAPs are comprehensive instructional packages that include all elements of a performance-oriented lesson plan. This LAP includes a student handout (with CopyIT! permission) that includes information about business activities, a (So What?) discussion of why it's important to learn, ideas (Make it Pay!) for immediate application, and a short (Gray Zone) case addressing ethical issues. The instructor section features a comprehensive discussion guide, complete practice- (short answer) and post-tests (multiple-choice) with descriptive keys, student activities, and more.
As an added bonus, instructors will receive a second version of the student guide—in color and designed specifically for use on electronic devices. This additional student guide is easier for instructors to share with students via email, shared drive, or learning management system and easier for students to view and read electronically.

Bring your discussions to life with our PowerPoint presentation featuring a broad range of graphics and special effects to help keep students interested. This professionally produced presentation consists of 20 slides.
"Entire LAP gives a great overview or summary of what business is all about."
