Question about Comparing FMC Green River and FMC Aberdeen
An organization is a consciously coordinated social unit, composed of several people whose main focus is to achieve a common goal or set of goals. A successful organization understands the cultural differences in various divisions or branches. It uses culture and group dynamics to overcome management challenges, implement strategic initiatives, and develop businessopportunities. Organizations with an exceptional "company" culture are usually run by leaders who understand and practice effective cultural leadership principles. A culture or sub-culture that works effectively in one part of an organization may not work well in another. Those who have made it to the top have done so by building a high performance workplace around the corporate culture.
As you prepare for each assignment your focus should be on developing a basic understanding of leadership, motivation, job satisfaction, etc., and how the corporate culture is what makes something work in one part of an organization, but not another.
Using the appropriate organizational analysis format begin your analysis by focusing on the following areas of interest. During the next five weeks, you will be using this format, and the step-by-step process to look at various areas of interest, culminating in the preparation of a formal proposal for the Plant Manager. So, it is important that you use a consistent format to take "notes" along the way (which will be submitted to your instructor). Start now by developing a paper (your "notes") which addresses:
The Management of Ability
While engaging the step-by-step analytical process keep in mind the differences that exist between FMC Green River and FMC Aberdeen. For example, think about the management of ability. State the what the corporate culture and work environment is like at Aberdeen, then at Green River. How does each operation make the best use of its employees` skill sets? Based on the corporate culture, identify an alternate method for them to leverage their employees abilities. Will the methodology you select for Aberdeen work at Green River? How will you implement your recommendation at each facility? Include your thoughts on these issues with your notes; you can either incorporate them into the "areas of interest" or add them as side notes.
Can you provide with an example to use to build my assignment? Any help will be much appreciated. Provide references for external sources. Thank you.
