You are to write an Executive Summary White Paper reflecting the benefits of the recommended change. Include the following in your white paper:

Your executive vice president (EVP) has decided to restructure six of the current business units into one sector structure. He has asked you to put together two deliverables for his team to review.

Part 1

You are to write an Executive Summary White Paper reflecting the benefits of the recommended change. Include the following in your white paper:

Short introduction about the alignment between organizational structure and organizational strategy

Productivity improvement analysis for each organizational structure option

Potential cost of each organizational structure option

Potential schedule for the merger

Your recommendation and why

Part 2

For this part, you are to write a Change Proposal Paper of 2,500 words in which you reflect upon your recommendation from Part 1.

Your EVP is very excited to get started on the change plan for the business unit merger project that you recommended in your Executive Summary White Paper. Before he signs off on the launch date for the project, the EVP wants to see a proposed change plan. Each of the impacted six divisions have approximately 830 employees, and each are organized in the following functions:

Project management

Manufacturing operations

Engineering

Quality

Information technology

Human resources

Accounting

Public relations

Procurement

He was very impressed with your ideas on a customer service organization and wants to include this new function in the new organization. The change plan should include the following:

Assessments

Examples of the return on investment (ROI)

Training required

Who will be involved in the full change planning

Communication plan

Places for potential economies of scale in the merger

Action plan

Schedule on the implementation of the new structure

He would also like to know what you need him and the other executive team members to do in support of this project.

What you learned about your client team in the previous change assignments is that they like to see charts with clear objective facts and the latest research in support of the ideas you are presenting in the documents that they review prior to the full team discussion. This is a critical project, so you will want to develop a standard list of questions to interview each of the seven executives to gather their input regarding this project. Be sure to build this diagnostic data collection into the overall project schedule.

Note: You may use applicable prior assignments from this course only as part of the development of this Change Plan.
