This week you will begin your Final Project for this module. The purpose of this project is to
apply the concepts and techniques of the module to the analysis of real-world situations or
problems. You will be submitting parts of this assignment in weeks 7, 8, and the completed
project in week 10.
Please read the following article: Nadler, D. A.., & Tushman, M. L. (1999) ?The organization of the future: Strategic imperatives and core competencies for the 21st century?, Organizational Dynamics, 28 (1), pp. 45?60. The article can be found in the attached file.
Imagine you are a consultant hired to restructure a company that is traditional in its structure and organization. (Use a company you know well or one for which you can get detailed information.)
Using Nadler and Tushman’s analysis and your own knowledge garnered from your readings and discussions, propose a restructuring of the company that would make it more competitive.
For week 7 your submission will be a proposal stating the organization you are using for your project. (The proposal is already done and is attached) You will need to discuss the organization in terms of the 3 Key issues mentioned in the article. How do these apply to the organization which you?ve chosen to discuss? The proposal also needs to include resources you will be able to use for your research. These sources may be articles on the industry or organization, the organizations website, the organizational chart, organizational structure articles and books, etc. (list of resources also listed in the proposal)
