Contrast the corporate values espoused by two Fortune 500 companies. Select two firms that seem to manifest very different cultures. Your response should focus on the trade offs you would experience working in the two firms in terms of the values you bring to the workplace. How might your values fit in or clash with the culture of these two organizations?
Each year Fortune magazine publishes a “Most Admired” list of the top companies in the United States. Firms are rated on these eight dimensions: innovativeness, quality of management, long-term investment value, social responsibility to the community and the environment, people management, quality of products and services, financial soundness, wise use of corporate assets, and, if international, a ninth dimension: effectiveness in doing business globally.
Select a familiar organization.Then, choose one of the eight dimensions used to rate top U.S. companies in which the organization appears to be under performing. Prepare a PowerPoint presentation (12-15 slides) that addresses the following:
Identify a major issue the organization is facing and in which dimension (of the eight identified above) it is under performing. Explain the ramifications the under performance is currently having on the organization. Identify the likely consequence of failure to improve in the selected dimension.
Analyze the relevance of the current organizational structure, design, and culture and their influence on organizational effectiveness, especially in relationship to the dimension in which the organization is struggling.
Determine whether the organization embodies the principles and values of conscious culture and management and its relevance to improving organizational function.
