Analyze strengths and weaknesses of the organizational structure and the organizational Chart. Attach as an appendix a copy of the company’s organizational chart.

If they do not have one, get one from another source and critique. -Leadership Effectiveness: What style of leadership does the manager use? Do you think his/her style is effective in this setting? If possible, give examples. -Employee Motivation: What motivational technique(s) does this manager say he/she uses? Do you think it is effective? In general, does the company use other motivational techniques? -Organizational Culture: Describe the Organization's culture. What kind of atmosphere prevails in the company? What impact does the physical setting have? Is there a “Dress code?” How does the company promote its attitudes and values in employees? How does the company deal with change? -Management of Organizational Change and Stress: Describe how the Organization manages diversity, stress and change issues.

Appendices should include organizational chart, performance appraisal form, and mission statement. You should use the Five Paragraph Essay format in writing your report. Be sure to proofread your paper to remove any spelling errors, grammatical errors, run-on sentences, and sentence fragments.

It must be included as an attachment to the report in order to get full credit. ** Please note this is not the letter you sent confirming your interview appointment. It is a letter sent after the interview thanking the person for taking the time with you. Grading Criteria: (1) Content—questions and concepts covered in sufficient depth to show an understanding, comparison and application of the concepts taught this semester to the information obtained from the interview. (2) Integration—For each topic, you will be graded by how you identify, integrate, compare and contrast the course resources, including the lectures, text, assigned articles, videos, guest speakers, etc. Points will be deducted if the course references are not integrated and identified according to standard attribution protocols (footnotes, inline references, etc). For example: when you are discussing the mission statement, state the principle and note the reference (page number) from the text a prior to the period, such as (Rue, p. 161). (3) Writing—you will be graded on clarity, conciseness, mechanics, grammar, spelling, proofreading. Your audience is your consulting company that has asked you to interview their client’s senior management to get the client company’s information regarding the topics outlined above. Submit report online by Monday April 25, 2016.
