A‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ common mistake for many project teams is to consider stake

A‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ common mistake for many project teams is to consider stakeholder engagement as an add-on to the implementation plan. A good communication plan should provide sufficient coverage of the stakeholders and how to keep them engaged with the team. Without it, the project may suffer from competing perspectives and poor communication. Consider the following: you have been tasked with leading a project that will overhaul your company’s human resources information system. This will include services such as payroll, benefits, employment opportunities, new hires, and training. Create a stakeholder engagement plan that will aid the process going forward: • Identify the stakeholders and per‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍form a stakeholder analysis. Include their interests, rights, ownership, knowledge levels, and contributions to the project • Identify factors that will influence stakeholder engagement, including culture, policies, risks, communication channels, local/global trends, and resources • Develop a strategy for engagement for the listed stakeholders. Include a list of actions required to involve stakeholders in the decision making and execution of the project in an efficient and constructive manner. Clearly define how you will handle stakeholder expectations and account for potential backlash on the project Your analysis should be a minimum of two pages, double-spaced, and APA f‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ormatted.

H‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍i there: My professor gave us only details for a case study. A church is examining strategies for security of volunteers as well as staff. Currently the church has a program that feeds roughly 200 homeless people 4x out of the week and feeds roughly 150 people on Sundays. In addition, due to the history of the church, tourists may come to the church, though there is no scheduled tours. The issue of concern is allowing the guests who are served access to another part of the church to stay warm during winter months. Due to issues w/safety in the pa‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍st such a ppl over-dosing and fights; there needs to be security. However, an extra security officer will cost $60K but a part-time security office may cost half of that price.

A‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ssignment 2.b (small group/individual) Surpassing Bureaucra

A‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ssignment 2.b (small group/individual) Surpassing Bureaucracy: Introducing participatory management in organization design FAVI is a French company built around the idea of a network of mini-factories, working together to serve the client as good as possible. A typical mini-factory consists of 20 to 35 operators and its leader. Each factory focuses on just one product at a time, in order to have a better customer relationship. The mini-factories operate freely within an informal network, without any form of centralized coordination. It is like an ecosystem of autonomous cells that are always able to find ad hoc solutions to problems that arise from their clients or by the evolution of the market. They have interesting characteristics that make them highly efficient, adaptive, and productive. For example, the team of every mini-factory is supposed to elect its own leader. The leader must always be an operator who has been working for several years within the factory and is often regarded as an experienced and recognized leader. The level of education is of no importance. Please read the references listed at the end and follow the two parts of this assignment: Part 1: Small Group Discussion (November 9th). During the second hour of the class, the participants will be divided into small groups in order to discuss the case during 40 min. After that, the instructor will lead a general discussion with all the participants together, to hear the results of each small group work. You have to come having read the references and p‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍repared to participate in the discussion. Part 2: Case Analysis (Due November 14th). Based on the readings, the results of the small group class discussion, and any other research you do on your own, consider the following topics about FAVI organizational design to write your case analysis (this is not a questionnaire, try to be creative in your writing): • Describe the organizational structure of FAVI as good as possible (use figures to illustrate). What are the arguments in favor of it and those opposing? What is your personal feeling about this structure? Would you feel comfortable within it? • Define what is a mini-factory, how it develops in organizations and what are its drawbacks. Why was this approach taken by FAVI? • Can you consider workplace well-being and participatory management as the core philosophies of FAVI organization? Why is it different? • What are the innovations that FAVI introduced to the automotive parts industry? • Do you think that this type of structure can function in the Caribbean?

A‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ssignment 2 (small group/individual) Surpassing Bureaucracy

A‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ssignment 2 (small group/individual) Surpassing Bureaucracy: Learning to be a caring organization Buurtzorg is a novel health care delivery organization based in the Netherlands. In 14 years, it has grown from a handful of employees to more than 10000 active partner members. Its main purpose is to provide neighborhood-based nursing services using self-managing teams composed of 8 to 10 nurses. In order to implement its innovative organizational structure, the approach taken had to depart from the classical approach based on massification to improve productivity and efficiency and use a more humane and caring paradigm, where the patient had to be at the center of the process. Each team has autonomy and do not depend of central decisions to plan their work; therefore, it is a distributed organization, but through technology all teams stay connected and collaborative. Buurtzorg has been a very successful organization that do not follow the traditional top-down structures that most health-care organizations use, making it a very interesting study case. As you read about this organization you will also learn that Buurtzorg: • It is expanding outside the Netherlands, to countries such as UK, USA and China. • It has the highest patient satisfaction in the country. • Despite the fact that it has higher educated nurses than the competition, their costs are far lower. • Its patients use less medicines and feel better cared for. • It ranked at the very top of the ‘Best Employer’ list in the Netherlands for five years in a row. • Without intending it, the organization has been profitable, making it easier to fund growth, to experiment and to develop the organization further.

Why was this approach taken by Buurtzorg? • Find out the steps taken by Buurtzorg to grow from one self-managing team to 800 in 9 years (see graph). • Can you consider Buurtzorg a caring, compassionate or humane organization? Why is it different? • How dependent of technology is the structure? Why is it important? • Do you think that this type of structure can function in the Caribbean? References: Nandram, Sharda (2015).
