Assignment Detail

MGT240-1003A-01 Business Management and Leadership
Assignment Name: Unit 3 Individual Project
Deliverable Length: 2-3 pages
Details:

Turning a failing organization around is one of the most interesting activities in management. When organizations see themselves in that downward spiral, their managers may feel that they are unable to stop the pace of negative change. That worry and that downward momentum can be very powerful. At the same time, it sometimes takes only a key impetus to deflect that movement and turn things around.

You have recently been hired as a new manager hired into a failing division in a company. The product line is outdated and losing market share, inter-departmental communication is adversarial, and competition for corporate funding is fierce. How are you, a new individual, going to turn things around? As your first job as the new manager at the outdated, adversarial company, write a plan for changing its organizational structure, incorporating the following elements:

1. Explain how you would address each of the three main problems in the organization: 1) outdated product lines, 2) adversarial communication, and 3) competition for internal resources. Thinking about organizational structures reviewed in the text, which one (or ones) do you think would be most suited to this organization and why.
2. What steps would you suggest to manage the transition from the old organizational structure to the new?
3. How would you assess the external environment and integrate this into the turn-around plan? Student must support their work with outside reliable sources.

Remember to use the Library or other Web resources to support your argument. Be sure to cite your sources using the correct standard of APA.

Your report MUST include a reference list. All research should be cited in the body of the paper. Discussion Board essays and Individual Projects without references and citations may not earn any higher grade than a 'C' letter grade. Your report should contain a short introduction, and conclusion in addition to the body of the paper. Please note that if you have a source in your reference section, you need to cite it in the body of the paper per APA guidelines and vice-versa.
