This is an exercise in participant observation. The report must include an introduction stating the purpose of the project and details about your field locations, 3 comparative body paragraphs and a conclusion noting patterns and identifying your decision/recommendation.
The 3 body paragraphs should capture the patterns/distinctions you found most compelling. I chose Scenario B for my report paper: (APPLIED) Retail Anthropology Paco Underhill has what he calls a self-exam where he asks the owner or CEO of a store to just stand with him and observe.
Inevitably they see things they never even thought about. In this exercise you are considering opening a coffee shop and you are trying to decide whether to apply for a franchise with a major company like Starbucks or to open your own independent establishment like Coffee Society. (This makes you a wanna-be CEO)
Use your field observations to note the cultural differences between chain and indy retail coffee establishments. In your conclusions, indicate the direction your business plan is going to take. Consult your textbook (pages 30-35) for examples of Paco Underhill’s observations and determine if you can use any of his fieldwork techniques. Consider starting your field observations with the following details. Please click on the link below to read about Paco underhill’s observation and see if you can use any of his fieldwork techniques.
Scroll up to page 31 and you will see a page talking about Paco Underhill’s observation work. Thank you! okay, I want you to write 5 paragraphs into two pages only. (my teacher only require two pages) each paragraph doesn’t need to be long.
As long you have all 5 paragraphs in two pages. I will be very happy and grateful you a lot. Also, if you feel like you want to add something that I didn’t mention below. Please do so. I’m going to name Starbucks A is locate in high class area mall and Starbucks B locate in medium class mall. I’m sure you went to Starbucks before so I hope this paper will not give you a hard time^__^ For introduction: I would like you to talk about the purpose of the project and details about the field locations.
Starbucks A is locate in Santana Row outdoor mall and Starbucks B is inside locate in Valley fair mall. best guess estimate of someone’s race, age, class, and gender( there are white, Asian, Mexican , and black, age is probably somewhere 18-50, most of them are high class for Starbucks A only. Starbucks B are more medium class. gender are female, male and kids This project is for culture anthropology class and my instructor didnâ€™t say what the purpose is. My guess is to see the different between two locations and people.
