Scenario:Imagine you are the director of a state department

Resolved Question:

Scenario:

Imagine you are the director of a state department that employs 1,500 people. Because of state budget constraints, the governor has proposed an early-retirement incentive package that would affect nearly 20% of your department’s employees — meaning that in 6 short months, your department will likely be losing around 300 employees from all management levels — from the executive office to the front lines. The governor has instructed all department heads to plan for this wave of early retirements, and to prepare for effective succession and knowledge transfer.

Your Memo:

In a memorandum to the governor, describe at least four distinct organization management challenges raised by the early retirement proposal, and apply one theory of effective management to each management challenge as you lay out your department’s plan for preparing for effective succession and knowledge transfer. These management challenges have been examined in your readings for this unit. Given this, please use those readings as a foundation for your memo.

Additionally, imagine the governor is contemplating privatizing your state agency. Address the issue of what kinds of management challenges might come from the governor attempting to privatize your state department.

How would this new private-sector department deal with a similar retirement issue?

Compare those private sector management issues to your above-discussed public sector management challenges.

Hi! I'll be happy to try to help you with this. That's a lot of content to pack into a couple pages. The question references the book you're using -- can you let me know what book your class uses so I can attempt to find a copy and use it myself?

Hi eric sorry has been a busy day. It is the jossey-bass reader on nonprofit and public leadership. 2010

Expert:  Eric M. replied 10 months ago.
No worries! Sounds good. I've looked through the book and it seems like there's a lot of different ideas in there rather than a somewhat organized list of theories, so is it alright to just use any of the ideas from the book as the 'theories of effective management'?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Yes as long as they flow with downsizing on org

Alright, here you go, here are my thoughts: (link)

Thanks! If you need anything else, please don't hesitate to let me know!

(FYI, I use plain text files since some people, including myself, don't have Microsoft Word. Microsoft Word will still open it just fine, but let me know if you want me to convert this to .doc anyway and I can on my work computer)
