Can you help me write my paper?

Students will read the case study that focuses on the four functions of management:  planning, organizing, leading and controlling (P-O-L-C).  You have been hired as a consultant to help Carl Thomas and his family to solve the problems with his business. You will create a management plan that covers the four functions of management.  In creating the management plan, you must also demonstrate how the four functions of management are interrelated showing how issues in one function impact other functions. 

 

In speaking with Carl, Joe and John, 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.

Required Elements of the Management Plan

 

Students will create a management plan that helps Carl, Joe and John run the business, both day-to-day and over the long term (strategically).  Be sure to be succinct in your writing but persuasive so that the recommendations will have positive outcomes for the business.

  • Develop roles and responsibility of the owners and employees (Be creative in completing this task);

  • 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.

Required Formatting of Management:

 

  • The management plan should be double-spaced, 12-point font, and between 6-8 pages in length excluding the title page and reference page.
  • Title page with your name, the course name, the date, and the instructor’s name.
