Assignemt (1) -
Evaluate the implications for operations management in organizations that operate internationally. For this assignment, you will select and assess the same type of product from two different firms, such as an SUV vehicle from Toyota, and BMW. (NOTE: You cannot use the automotive industry, so pick another industry that operates internationally.)
In a 5-6-page paper, defend the organizations’ production processes, customer interaction in those processes, if applicable, and the technologies used in production. Judge each organization’s commitment to quality and excellence, as well as the process used for measuring quality. Describe each of the selected organization’s inventory methodologies and model(s), and any areas for improvement. Describe each of the selected organization’s movements toward lean processes or Six Sigma, and how these impact the culture, efficiency, and success of each organization. Finally, compare and contrast each company’s production processes, customer interactions in those processes, and technologies used in production.
Be sure to use at least two current, scholarly references beyond any required course readings. Current sources are those published within the most recent five-year period, and scholarly sources are those from peer-reviewed journals.
Make certain for each listed reference that you have at least one supporting citation in the body of your content. Your reference page is always the last page of the submission where all individual references get listed.
assignment (2) - Comprehensive Change Management Process
The final project for this course requires students to create a comprehensive Change Management Process, including its origination and implementation. To complete this project, address the following:
Choose a Middle Eastern organization in which you are currently working or with which you are familiar. Provide a brief description of the organization, including its history, number of employees, products/services, mission/vision, strategies, etc.
Discuss the problem or issue confronting the organization. Why is there a need to change (e.g., falling profits, low morale, challenges recruiting talented employees, etc.)?
Assess the principle reasons for the organization’s problem or issue. What is the root cause and what are other causes of the problem/issue?
Identify the intended change you propose for the organization. Detail the reasons for the change, including any research you conducted that led you to this recommendation (for instance, similar organizations in a similar situation followed this strategy, or studies indicated this was the preferred solution for other organizations in a similar situation).
Identify a plan to implement the change. Be clear about the steps or processes that you propose to implement this change, including any resources which may be needed throughout the process.
Identify the measurement/control mechanisms you would utilize to determine if the change management process is working effectively. Also include any contingency plans you would propose if/when the plan is not implemented as intended.
Finally, offer a brief statement about what you learned from completing this project and how your research in this course has affected your perspective/perception of change.
Your well-written paper should meet the following requirements:
Be 6-8 pages in length, which does not include the title page, abstract or required reference page, which are never a part of the content minimum requirements.
Use academic writing standards and APA style guidelines.
Support your submission with course material concepts, principles and theories from the textbook and at least four scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles.
