Organization Theory Individual Essay
Question: “In considering the influence that technology in general or any single technology has over human affairs, it is … necessary to consider not only the technology and its presumed “imperatives,” but also the key human agents of the technology, the organisations in which they operate, and how these influence the course of technological change” (Rudi, 257). Select two of the four perspectives and discuss how they provide different insights into the relations between technology, organisations, management and employees. (modernism, symbolic interpretivism, critical theory, postmodernism) Related meta-theoretical assumptions (ontology, epistemology, theoretical assumption, methodology)
Instructions: a. This is a theory paper: you need to discuss two out of four theoretical perspectives (choose from modernism, symbolic interpretivism, critical theory, postmodernism) as well as their related meta-theoretical assumptions (ontology, epistemology, theoretical assumptions, methodology where relevant), theories, ideas and/or concepts in answering the assignment question. Therefore, my essay must be grounded in theoretical discussion and not general descriptive writing or case studies.
Please take references from the book Organization Theory: Modern, Symbolic and Postmodern Perspective by Mary Jo Hatch & Ann L. Cunliffe
b. Essay Writing: It must contain a proper introduction. This generally means that your introduction in your essay must include a main argument and statements of intent and the main argument must address the primary task or question raised in your assignment.
Structure 1: Part A. Discuss the chosen two theoretical perspectives’ meta-theoretical assumptions (ontology, epistemology, theoretical assumption, methodology) and show how these assumptions lead to the views (in terms of theories/theoretical ideas on technology) that each perspective hold on the relations between technology, organizations, management and employees. Part B. Once you have demonstrated an understanding of the two perspectives and their theoretical approaches to the relationship between technology, organizations, management and employees, use the material in part A [your discussion of the two perspectives’ meta-theoretical assumptions and their relevant theories/theoretical ideas on technology] to address the passage cited my question. Simply put, what you will be doing in this section is to develop your own arguments and analysis of how each of your two chosen perspectives would respond to the passage cited based on their theoretical assumptions and ideas. Finally, please discuss the criticisms that the two perspectives may offer of each other in relations to their views on technology/technological change and why they made such criticisms.
Structure 2: Please structure my essay according to the two perspectives you have chosen. For example, discuss themeta-theoretical assumptions of modernism and show its views on the relations between technology, organizations, management and employees based on its theories and theoretical ideas on technology. Next, apply these ideas to how the modernist perspective would respond to the passage cited in my question. Once you are done, move on and repeat the process for the next chosen perspective. Finally, please discuss the criticisms the two perspectives offer of each other in relations to their views on technology/technological change and why they made such criticisms.
d. Please do not write in an abstract manner

Problem 8-4A Prepare a bank reconciliation and record adjustments LO P3 [The following information applies to the questions displayed below.]
The following information is available to reconcile Branch Company’s book balance of cash with its bank statement cash balance as of July 31, 2013. a. On July 31, the company’s Cash account has a $25,756 debit balance, but its July bank statement shows a $27,759 cash balance. b. Check No. 3031 for $1,390 and Check No. 3040 for $687 were outstanding on the June 30 bank reconciliation. Check No. 3040 is listed with the July canceled checks, but Check No. 3031 is not. Also, Check No. 3065 for $471 and Check No. 3069 for $2,158, both written in July, are not among the canceled checks on the July 31 statement. c. In comparing the canceled checks on the bank statement with the entries in the accounting records, it is found that Check No. 3056 for July rent was correctly written and drawn for $1,220 but was erroneously entered in the accounting records as $1,210. d. A credit memorandum enclosed with the July bank statement indicates the bank collected $7,500 cash on a non-interest-bearing note for Branch, deducted a $38 collection fee, and credited the remainder to its account. Branch had not recorded this event before receiving the statement. e. A debit memorandum for $805 lists a $795 NSF check plus a $10 NSF charge. The check had been received from a customer, Evan Shaw. Branch has not yet recorded this check as NSF. f. Enclosed with the July statement is a $11 debit memorandum for bank services. It has not yet been recorded because no previous notification had been received. g. Branch’s July 31 daily cash receipts of $8,652 were placed in the bank’s night depository on that date, but do not appear on the July 31 bank statement.
