You may not choose any of the followed highly researched companies: Apple, Amazon, Alphabet Co, Google, Yahoo, Samsung, Walmart, or Target. When choosing your company keep in mind that all your research and sources must be recent (last 8 weeks). Choose a company with plenty of information readily available.

Your first milestone submission should address the following requirements:

1.Provide a brief summary of the history of your company (no more than ½ page).

2.Describe the culture of your company.

3.Assess how well your organization deals with uncertainty in the market in which they operate.
