Use Case Study and Follow instructions below:
Major Problem and Secondary Issues
Think about what is really going on the case. Remember, you are looking for managerial level issues, NOT operational issues. use issues such as Leadership, teamwork and workplace stress. Analyze this issues to see if you can determine how these problems interrelate to each other. Are some problems the cause of other problems? Which ONE is the root cause of most/all of the others? Describe in one sentence the major issue/problem. It is important to note here that you need to decide on only ONE “major” problem.
When you’re ready to write this section, specifically identify the major problem and provide justification for your rationale. Present an analysis of the causes and effects. Fully explain your reasoning. Then, briefly do the same thing for any secondary issues you have identified.
In a short paragraph, declare from which role you will address the major problem, whether you are a senior manager, departmental manager or another role. If you are not familiar with the types of management titles in an organization don’t worry; it is more important that you describe the level of responsibility and span of control of the role you select than have a specific title. Regardless of your choice, justify why you chose that role. What are the advantages and disadvantages of your selected role in solving this specific problem? Be specific.
Organizational Strengths and Weaknesses
What might you need from the organization in order to solve the major problem? Understanding that you haven’t solved it yet, you should give some general thought to the types of resources you may need and whether the organization has them or not. For example, if you think you may need to add staff, bring in consultants or send staff to training, does the organization have the financial resources to support that? If not, it’s important to know something like that now so you don’t recommend an expensive solution you can’t afford.
When you are ready to write this section, identify the strengths and weaknesses that exist in relation to the major problem. Again, your focus here should be in describing what the organization is capable of doing (and not capable of doing) with respect to addressing the major problem. DO NOT rehash the case or describe the major problem as a weakness. Think critically here about what you may need in order to solve the problem.
*** IMPORTANT POINT***
The first “half” of the analysis (above) was your opportunity to show off your critical thinking skills. The upcoming second half is an opportunity to showcase your ability to apply research to practice. Make sure you apply research, and not websites, commentaries, journal articles that are not actual research, etc. Your reference list should be focused on research surrounding what you defined as the major problem.
Solutions and Recommendation
Conduct some research on your identified major problem/issue. For example, if the problem you have identified deals with a lack of effective leadership, discover what researchers have found it takes to be an effective leader. Are the different types of leadership styles effective for different situations? Are there specific leadership qualities that can affect specific types of problems? Can any of that research apply to your specific case? If so, describe (and cite) the research and how it applies to the case, and discuss how the role you selected could implement this. Then, discuss the pros and cons to this solution. Do this for at least two (but not more than three) potential (and feasible!) solutions, and then do a decision analysis between them. Which solution would be the best one to implement? Think about the organizational strengths and weaknesses you identified earlier to help with your choice.
In this section you must describe how and when you will know that you have “fixed” the major problem. In order to do that, you need to quantify a metric. In order to know that your chosen metric actually measures what you think it does, you must pull it from the research – this validates your choice of metric. When pulling research for your solutions (above), keep an eye out for outcomes. For the example above, what have researchers found as the outcomes of effective leadership? Select a quantifiable outcome to use as your metric, and cite the research. Then, provide a baseline, target and timeframe for your metric (make up these numbers).
