Assignment 3: Applying the P-O-L-C (Week 8)

 

Purpose:

 

The third assignment, a consultancy report, provides students with the ability to

 

demonstrate that they have mastered the course content and can apply theories, concepts

 

and ideas learned throughout the course to a situation that emulates a real world

 

situation. Students will read the case study that focuses on the four functions of

 

management: planning, organizing, leading and controlling (P-O-L-C) and respond to the

 

required elements of the assignment.

 

Writing reports in business is commonplace so writing a consultancy report provides

 

students the opportunity to demonstrate a skill that employers are looking for from an

 

employee.

 

Outcome Met by Completing This Assignment:

 


 


 

integrate management theories and principles into

 

management practices

 


 


 


 

employ effective planning processes to develop

 

strategies, goals, and objectives in order to enhance

 

performance and sustainability

 


 


 


 

organize human, physical, and financial resources for the

 

effective and efficient attainment of organizational goals

 


 


 


 

demonstrate leadership skills by communicating a

 

shared vision, motivating and empowering others, and creating

 

a culture of ethical decision-making and innovation

 


 


 


 

develop measures and assess outcomes against plans and

 

standards to improve organizational effectiveness

 


 


 


 

identify the essential characteristics of decision making

 

and indicate the range and types of decisions a manager makes

 


 

Instructions:

 

You have been hired as a consultant to help Mike Davis and his family to solve the

 

problems with his business both day-to-day and over the long term (strategically). You

 

will create a consultancy report that covers the four functions of management. In

 

creating the consultancy report, you must also demonstrate how the four functions of

 

management are interrelated showing how issues in one function impact other functions.

 


 

In speaking with Mike, Ethan and Daisy, you already know the following about the

 

business owners:

 

1.

 


 

failed to develop or share a mission statement;

 


 

2.

 


 

failed to determine the best way to organize resources, including

 

personnel;

 


 

3.

 


 

underestimates the importance of recruitment, job design and

 

descriptions, and training;

 


 

4.

 


 

assumed that motivation will occur naturally;

 


 

5.

 


 

fails to define standards and other measurable outcomes;

 


 

6.

 


 

ignored negative information;

 


 

7.

 


 

delayed actions to improve organizational outcomes.

 


 

Be succinct in your writing but persuasive so that the recommendations will have positive

 

outcomes for the business.

 

Students are not using buzz-word and are not defining terms using a dictionary. Students

 

are expected to present the material in a professional manner describing and explaining to

 

the owners. As a consultant, you should be secure in your presentation to Mike, Ethan

 

and Daisy. Avoid telling the owners that they should do this or must do that but write in

 

an action-oriented manner. Students are expected to make connections between the facts

 

of the case study and concepts, theories, and ideas presented in the course material.

 

Step 1: Review ?How to Analyze a Case Study? under Week 3 Content.

 

Step 2: Create a Word or Rich Text Format (RTF) document. This consultancy plan

 

should be presented in a professional manner using single space, double-spaced between

 

paragraphs. The final product will be between 6-8 pages in length excluding the title

 

page, diagrams and reference page.

 

Step 3: Title page with your name, the course name, the date, and the instructor?s name.

 

Step 4: Since students are probably not familiar with writing a consultancy report, the

 

following resources have been provided to assist in writing the report.

 

Outline for Consultancy Report

 

Step 5: In writing a case study, the writing is in the third person. What this means is that

 

there are no words such as ?I, me, my, we, or us? (first person writing), nor is there use of

 

?you or your? (second person writing). If uncertain how to write in the third person, view

 


 

this link: http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/first-second-and-thirdperson

 

Step 6: In writing this assignment, students are expected to support the reasoning using

 

in-text citations and a reference list. If any material is used from a source, it must be

 

cited and referenced. A reference within a reference list cannot exist without an

 

associated in-text citation and vice versa. View the sample APA paper under Week 1

 

content.

 

Step 7: In writing this assignment, students are expected to paraphrase and not use direct

 

quotes. Learn to paraphrase by reviewing this

 

link: https://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/QPA_paraphrase2.html

 

Step 8: In writing this assignment, students may use external resources but the majority

 

of resources will come from the course readings with a wide array of readings used.

 

Step 9: Review the grading rubric for the assignment.

 

Step 10: Read critically and analyze the case study provided under Week 5 content.

 

Notate the key points in the case study.

 

Step 11: Create an executive summary. Although a report must be complete when

 

presenting to a client, the expectation is that there is an executive summary so that the

 

client can read quickly the main features of the report. The executive summary should be

 

written in a way that makes the client want to read more so it must have enough

 

information to see the potential behind the recommendations without having to read the

 

entire report.

 

So you aren?t sure how to write the executive summary. Check out this resource to help

 

you write the summary:

Step 12: Respond to the required elements of the assignment. Be clear and concise in

 

the writing and make sure the questions are comprehensively answered.

 


 


 

In creating the consultancy report, students will first assess the business and

 

identify specific areas of strengths and weaknesses of the business as it relates to

 

the components of the P-O-L-C. In completing this section, do not create a

 

heading for each element of the P-O-L-C but write from the perspective of the

 

consultant discussing the strengths and weaknesses of the business;

 


 


 


 

Select a management model (class hierarchy, democratic hierarchy, collaborative

 

management or collective management) and explain why the selected model is

 

most appropriate for Outdoor Adventure Paintball Park;

 


 


 


 

Develop roles and responsibility of the owners and employees (Be creative in

 

completing this task); Discuss why these positions are necessary to the business;

 


 


 


 

Discuss communication and the flow of decision making in relation to the

 

management model;

 


 


 


 

Make specific recommendations for improving the management of Outdoor

 

Adventure Paintball Park. Cover all aspects of the P-O-L-C. This area of the

 

paper specifically addresses the areas of strengths and weaknesses identified

 

above and puts in place a plan for the short and long ?term success of the

 

business;

 


 


 


 

Create a balanced scorecard that will help Outdoor Adventure Paintball Park align

 

its business activities to the vision and strategy of the organization, improves

 

communication and monitors performance against goals;

 


 


 


 

Students are expected to show what they have learned in the course by applying

 

theories and concepts. Be sure to support your reasoning.

 


 

Step 13: Using the grading rubric as a comparison, read through the paper to ensure all

 

required elements are presented.

 

Step 14: Proofread the paper for spelling and grammatical issues, and third person

 

writing.

 


 


 

Use the spell and grammar check in Word as a first measure;

 


 


 


 

Have someone who has excellent English skills to proof the paper;

 


 


 


 

Consider submitting the paper to the Effective Writing Center (EWC). The EWC

 

will provide 4-6 areas that may need improvement.

 


 

Step 15: Submit the paper in the Assignment Folder.
