After completing Term Paper B, add a short creative 300-word section showing possible links (connections) between Term Paper A and Term Paper B, within the 

context of the development, management, and commercialization of technology. Call this section “Integration.” 

Attach all outlines at the end. It is also recommended that you have a table of contents. 

using the process and structure described below:
Outline: Before  writing  the  paper create an outline for  the  paper  based  on  the  structure  for  the term-paper described in the next four bullets. You must attach your outline at the end of your paper. Carefully read the next four bullets before creating your outline.
Divide
your paper into sections and subsections, each with an appropriate heading. Each paragraph should only contain one idea, which is clearly stated at the beginning of the paragraph, and then developed in the paragraph. The next three bullets describe how the sections are organized.
Set-up  of  a  theme  for  your  paper  (1-2  paragraphs):  Develop  a  creative,  thought-provoking theme or hypothesis for your paper. This theme should be within the context of  the(clearly  stated) key  product/technology,  and/or business/management,  and/or commercialization issues addressed
in the speaker’s presentation.
Develop the theme (8-10 paragraphs).
Develop your theme or hypothesis with suitable arguments, supported  by  evidence and examples.  Be sure that the technology issues (e.g., a company’s technology and product line) and business issues (e.g., marketing and sales strategy) that you discuss are clearly  related  to  the  specific  context  of the speaker’s  presentation  (e.g.,  how  distribution channels are used to market products, etc.). Provide several  concrete  examples  (e.g.,  examples  of
successful  research  projects  at  Microsoft, Seagate’s markets and products, etc.).
End  the  theme  (1-2  paragraphs): Re-examine your theme or hypothesis. Does it still stand; does it need to be refined, or changed? What conclusions can you draw from this seminar presentation relative to the development, management, and commercialization of technologies and products? What are the technology, business, and management challenges and opportunities going
forward?
