Read the scenario and respond to the Checklist items in a persuasive memo.
Scenario: Your team leader has gathered your team of six to discuss the newest frozen food product line called “Supreme Nutrition” that the company is introducing in the next 12 months. He explains that while some of the dried vegetables and fruits used in the product are not necessarily free from scrutiny by health enthusiasts, there still is no definitive proof according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that these dried fruits and vegetables do not have some actual nutrition. In fact, many top competitors use some of these dried fruits and vegetables themselves.
Upon leaving the meeting, you are concerned with the name of the product line and the actual ingredients. So, on your own time, you speak with several of the food scientists examining these dried fruits and vegetables wo corroborate your concerns, and then you research advertising laws. You decide that you are going to write a persuasive memo to upper management to convince them that they should change the name of the product line.
Using Cialdini’s persuasive principles, write a minimum of a 400–500-word persuasive memo to upper management.
