    PHASE 5 IP

    PHASE 5 IP 

    Your executive vice president (EVP) has decided to restructure six of the current business units into one sector structure. He has asked you to put together two deliverables for his team to review.

    Part 1

    You are to write an Executive Summary White Paper reflecting the benefits of the recommended change. Include the following in your white paper:


    Short introduction about the alignment between organizational structure and organizational strategy  

    Productivity improvement analysis for each organizational structure option  

    Potential cost of each organizational structure option  

    Potential schedule for the merger  

    Your recommendation and why

    Part 2

    For this part, you are to write a Change Proposal Paper of 2,500 words in which you reflect upon your recommendation from Part 1.

    Your EVP is very excited to get started on the change plan for the business unit merger project that you recommended in your Executive Summary White Paper. Before he signs off on the launch date for the project, the EVP wants to see a proposed change plan. Each of the impacted six divisions have approximately 830 employees, and each are organized in the following functions:  


    Project management  

    Manufacturing operations  



    Information technology  

    Human resources  


    Public relations  


    He was very impressed with your ideas on a customer service organization and wants to include this new function in the new organization. The change plan should include the following:



    Examples of the return on investment (ROI)  

    Training required  

    Who will be involved in the full change planning  

    Communication plan  

    Places for potential economies of scale in the merger  

    Action plan  

    Schedule on the implementation of the new structure

    He would also like to know what you need him and the other executive team members to do in support of this project.

    What you learned about your client team in the previous change assignments is that they like to see charts with clear objective facts and the latest research in support of the ideas you are presenting in the documents that they review prior to the full team discussion. This is a critical project, so you will want to develop a standard list of questions to interview each of the seven executives to gather their input regarding this project. Be sure to build this diagnostic data collection into the overall project schedule.

    Making Decisions

    Making Decisions

     Decisions are made on a daily basis within every position at every company.  Decisions regarding company policy can often create the conflicts that were discussed within last week's forum.  This week, we also read about making financial decisions within a company.  When making a decision that affects multiple departments within the company, it is important to think about the long-term benefits or challenges.  Think back over your professional life…discuss a decision that was made by your company that had an effect on you or your department directly.  What  challenges were created by this decision?  Was your company prepared for these challenges?  How was this decision communicated to the employees?  What could have been improved within this process?  While you are not required to formally cite your sources within the forum, you should make sure that you are incorporating information from the readings into your responses.  Your responses should clearly show that you have read the material.

        Project Management #

        Project Management #

        Most students intuitively know more about project management than they realize. Through experiences at work, school, or in the community, almost every adult has either participated in and/or managed a project at one time or another.

        Apply the concepts learned in chapter 1 and describe a project you have either participated in and/or managed.
        A quality response will apply the components of the definition of a project; describe progress through the project life cycle; and reference quality of managing the scope, time and cost (the three project objectives).
