It is a writting assignments.

For this assignment, you will review the scenario described below. You are then to incorporate the major concepts from the chapters assigned to Module 1 into your responses. Specifically, in order to successfully answer each question, you will be required to identify what you feel are the OB concepts relevant to the scenario, and then use these concepts as a basis for your responses.

Grades for all Module integrated activity assignments will be based on:

1. The relevance of the concepts you identify given the scenario, and

2. The degree to which you demonstrate that you understand and apply the concepts to the situation.

**** There are no specific answers for this assignment. I want you to be as creative as you would like. The main thing I will look for is how well you apply and discuss the relevant concepts described in the Module 1 chapter material.

You do not have to include everything from the chapters (i.e., throwing in the kitchen sink will not work). Instead, I will be looking for evidence that you are able to apply material you feel is most relevant to the situation and to your intended actions/ decisions.

Scenario Overview:

Envision yourself as a manager of a (hypothetical) mid-sized industrial equipment manufacturing company who has been tasked with starting and managing a new work unit focused on providing a wide range of operational data analytics to the various divisions within the company. The need for the new work unit is that the company has experienced rapid growth, and in order to support the company’s ability to meet its customers’ demands, the new work unit will provide direct analytic support to all of the major operational divisions.

The specific mission of the new unit will be to collect and analyze raw operational and production data which will then be used to generate reports for various internal customers according to the parameters specified by those customers (e.g., quality assurance, resource utilization, production lead times etc.)

Even though this new work unit will be situated within the broader organizational structure, because of the unique nature and purpose of the new unit you have been given a great deal of autonomy regarding how the unit is to be internally structured and managed.

For this activity, and in accordance with the your supervisory tasks, using what you have read in the Module 1 chapter material please answer the following associated questions:


Q1: Describe in detail what you feel should be the key structural characteristics if the unit’s primary performance goals are 1) speed, 2) accuracy, and 3) efficiency.


Q2: Describe what you feel would be key characteristics of the work unit’s internal culture necessary to support it’s mission. Specifically, what shared values and behavior expectations would be central to establishing a strong unit culture?


Q3a: Describe what you feel would be the optimal team composition, and explain your reasoning.

3b: Explain how you would prevent social loafing from occurring within the unit.

3c: Identify which team role(s) you feel would be most critical for the unit’s success.

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
