PART A. Select an organization among the places of employment.
Select a global market into which the company might expand. This should be a market with different characteristics, so do not choose a similar market such as Canada.
The company is considering expanding into the global market. As a result, the management team is analyzing the current strategic objectives and the organization’s structure, and looking at how this change may affect any or all of these areas. The team will present these findings to leadership once completed.
Create a 16- to 20-slide presentation including detailed speaker notes or voiceover in which you include the following:
- Examine the current strategic objectives of the organization.
- Determine the current structure of the organization.
- Discuss how expanding to a global market may affect work functions.
- Recommend structural alternatives that may facilitate the new global strategy. How do these options differ? What are their strengths and weaknesses?
- Determine the key components of a change management strategy for the restructuring.
- Recommend next steps for an action plan.
Part B. This assignment is another bit of foolishness that comes from the folks who wrote this course – so we’re going throw it back on them. The “believing game” is absurd. It asks us to abandon reason for the sake of…what? Here’s the simple truth – you can tell me all day long how great it might be to be a Nazi (I’ve just violated Godwin’s Law – google it), but it’s not a conversation I’m going to engage in, let alone ‘believe”. This is not to say there aren’t valid opposing positions to what we think, but the operative word here is ‘valid’. We use reason and research to support positions, not opinion. I know the rate of a falling body in a vacuum is 9.2 meters per second squared. There is no alternate position. The kind of thinking proposed here asks us to deny science. If it’s merely opinion about who makes better beer or pizza – well, you might try the other guy’s slice, but if you don’t like it, you don’t have to…and just don’t bother offering me a bite of anchovy…
So rather than entertaining, and writing about, this foolishness, write one – just one – good page about why simply ‘believing’ is a bad idea, and how we might go about thinking about things we don’t believe a bit more productively…if we can?
And don’t worry about the rubric or the directions, below – I got that covered – you just use your brains and write.
