B

Given the influence of factors such as values, attitudes, beliefs, feelings, and personality on individual behavior, demonstrate how knowledge of individual difference factors helps in understanding, predicting, and influencing individual behavior.

Use a diagnostic instrument such as the Life Styles Inventory (LSI) to assess your personal thinking and behavior styles and their role in accomplishing self-improvement goals.

C

Given the array of theories of motivation, demonstrate their application to successfully guide employees toward accomplishing organizational objectives.

D

Given knowledge of group dynamics and decision-making, apply this knowledge to a case analysis to diagnose an organizational problem and recommend solutions.

E

Given an understanding of the communication process and given specific incidents of communication problems at the dyad, group, or organization level, diagnose the problem and develop a strategy for improving organizational performance through improvement of communication processes.

F

Given a specific challenge of intra- and inter-group conflict, demonstrate specific conflict resolution behaviors a leader can use to effectively resolve the conflict.

Expert:  RopTeam replied 3 years ago.

Hi Teddy, ok how do I access the Devry library? or does it matter...

 

For the TCO question #4 I would say that our topic most closely relates to J.

Given an understanding of the basic components of organizational structure and design, illustrate how an organization's structure supports its organizational goals.

 

This is because the HR department is reviewing hiring process and becoming more proactive to aligning with customer service needs. As well as how technology and training can improve the level of skill hirees have in being more effective and productive in meeting customer and organizational needs...

Hi Teddy, it isnt working It says access unsucessful.

 

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Tionee, I am still working on this ebscohost, but here are the teachers remarks about the CVS paper.

 

1. What is "your" specific role in the organization. While I I understand the role of the Organization Development and Technology teams, your role is not explicitly discussed.

2. What Terminal Course Objective (TCO) is aligned to your research area.

3. What area are you specifically focusing on as possible solutions to the problem? In the end, the problem question is too broad and should be narrowed to better direct your study. The current problem question, as noted below, must be revised:

" How can CVS address these areas of concern with order fulfillment and customer satisfaction?"

In refining the problem question, will you be looking at the organization structure, process improvement, employee training, etc.? Once you determine the areas under consideration you can more clearly frame the problem question. For example, "what process efficiencies can be implemented to accelerate order fulfillment processing?"

As another example, in investigating under-performance of a firm's Workforce Development Implementation Team, a potential problem question might be, "What reward systems can be implemented to motivate team performance to satisfy project implementation goals?"

Please drop me a note of your revised problem question and related TCO.

Expert:  RopTeam replied 3 years ago.

 

For role in the organization, is the instructor suggesting... pretend you are part of the organizational team and are looking to address a problem? Or is the organizational problem supposed to be one that you have actually participated in resolving?

 

Assuming this is a hypothetical case your role could be as HR manager in charge of hiring and training CVS team...

 

I had posted this above in response to which TCO:

For the TCO question #4 I would say that our topic most closely relates to J.

"Given an understanding of the basic components of organizational structure and design, illustrate how an organization's structure supports its organizational goals."

 

In the paper posted I put the following to define the problem and the problem statement etc:

Define the Problem

There are issues related to timeliness in responding to customer prescription orders. There are also concerns that misinformation has resulted in customer dissatisfaction in getting updates as to the status of their orders. There are too many cases being reported where customers orders are misplaced or left unfulfilled. This too is an area that needs to be addressed.

Problem statement: How can the CVS OD team restructure or reposition itself to address these areas of concern with order fulfillment and customer satisfaction?

 

As HR manager your role is to review the hiring process and become more proactive to aligning with customer service needs. In addition HR needs to communicate with the IT department to research how technology and training can improve the prescription order processing system. HR can address the problem of improving customer satisfaction with better trained workers to reduce the issues related to response times and error tracking. This will be effective in improving the OD goals of raising the level of productivity while reducing customer service compaints.

 




Expert:  RopTeam replied 3 years ago.

The last part was revised to be more specific to hiring, technical process improvement areas of OD. To reiterate your role is as hiring manager.


Does that work?

Tonee, STOP, STOP! My professor is saying that this should be about a career field that I have been a part of. Can you do this on the Army, Lowes or Home Depot?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Forget what I just said. This is the correction that she added to what you revised earlier:

 

You indicated the problem that will be address is "How can CVS OD team, specifically HR restructure or reposition itself to address these areas of concern with order fulfillment and customer satisfaction?" The question is still unclear...which will you focus on restructure or reposition? what specific areas of concern?

Are you focusing on training, technology improvements, or process reengineering...?

You mentioned that HR can help with putting in place a training program yet, you have also implicated the "hiring process." I do not see the connection between the hiring process and order fulfillment.

Please be sure to properly "focus" your study. An example of a clearly designed problem is "what organization infrastructure improvements can be made to improve the customer order improvement process?" Infrastructure is a broad term that covers people, processes, technology, structure, etc.,

Okay, Theordore....please be sure to make updates prior to the final submission of your course project, and let me know if you have any clarifying questions for me.

Kind Regards.

Good morning Tonee! Having issues with JA, but all is well. I just need to clarify what we are doing for each project.
Expert:  RopTeam replied 3 years ago.

Hi Teddy. The problem and involves more than one area. Rarely in an true organization does a problem in one department not affect another.

 

The professor asked to uncover the root problem, causes. The professor in fact repeats this several times in the instructions, well the root problem is three fold.

 

Problem question:

How can CVS OD team, specifically HR restructure or reposition itself to address these areas of concern with order fulfillment and customer satisfaction?"

 

Solution involves various departments within the organization structure, namely 1)Technology 2Hiring --HR 3Training --HR. That is why an OD Team is needed to resolve it. Your role is representing the HR managerial department.

 

Better processes via technology will allow for better order processing, employees that are hired and trained on these processes will better be able to respond to customer complaints and fulfill orders. This will improve the organization level of customer satisfaction with less complaints and a faster, more nimble order transaction process.

 

The root problem is systems filling prescriptions need to be updated for better transaction processing along with better trained staff.

 

I can remove the technology part of the organization structure though we would then have to rethink the TCO we are using....?

Its just that her instructions ask for the root cause then at the same time she wants a generalized one dimensional answer? Let me know....

 

ie. Her instructions---" Identify issues, events, and actions that contributed to problem being discussed ...1. What is its nature? B. To whom is it a problem? C. To what extent is it a problem? 1. Is it part of a larger problem or are there related problems?

The teachers response to the rough draft:

 

Theodore,

You have provided some good background information. The write-up and problem question is unclear and seem unrelated.

What area within CVS are you focusing? You indicated "The problem question is "how to improve the level of customer service at CVS reducing complaints." Please specify the customer service area, for example, are you referring to the pharmacy, cashier check-out, etc., Also, are you focusing on customer complaints? Employee complaints?

In the end, though, your assignment seems to be focusing on technology and staff...? Accordingly, the research question requires additional clarification to accurately communicate the foci of your study. An example of a more refined research question based on the information provided is " How can CVS leverage technology to increase organizational efficiency and service to customers?"

Hello Tonee, can you help me with the following?

Assignment:

Pick an administrative agency of either the federal or a state government. Find where the current and proposed regulation changes for that agency are located on the Internet. (i.e., the Federal Register or the State Administrative Agency website.) Regulations.gov is a good place to begin your research. Pick one proposed regulation change currently under consideration (if you find one that has already closed out but interests you, you can use that instead) and write the following regarding it:

1. State the administrative agency which controls the regulation. Explain why this agency and your proposed regulation interests you (briefly). Will this proposed regulation affect you or the business in which you are working? If so, how? Submit a copy of the proposed regulation along with your responses to these five questions. The proposed regulation can be submitted as either a separate Word document (.doc) or Adobe file (.pdf). This means you will submit two attachments to the Week 2 Dropbox: (a) a Word document with the questions and your answers and (b) a copy of the proposed regulation you used for this assignment. (10 points)

2. Describe the proposal/change. (10 points)

3. Write the public comment that you would submit to this proposal. If the proposed regulation deadline has already passed, write the comment you would have submitted. Explain briefly what you wish to accomplish with your comment. (10 points)

4. Provide the "deadline" by which the public comment must be made. (If the date has already passed, please provide when the deadline was). (5 points)

5.

a. Once you have submitted your comment, what will you be legally entitled to do later in the promulgation process (if you should choose to do so)? (See the textbook's discussion of the Administrative Procedure Act.)

b. If the proposal passes, identify and explain the five legal theories you could use in an attempt to have the regulation declared invalid and overturned in court.

c. Which of these challenges would be the best way to challenge the regulation you selected for this assignment if you wanted to have the regulation overturned and why?

Answer all of these questions for #5 even if you are in favor of your proposed regulation.

The response to question 5 should be a minimum of 2–3 paragraphs long. (15 points)

If you are able to help; here's an example template:


Week 2 Homework Help – GM520.
Here is an example to get you started on the Week 2 Homework:
1. State the administrative agency which controls the regulation. Explain why this agency and your proposed regulation interests you (briefly). Will this proposed regulation affect you or the business in which you are working? If so, how? Submit a copy of the proposed regulation along with your responses to these five questions. The proposed regulation can be submitted as either a separate Word document (.doc) or Adobe file (.pdf). This means you will submit two attachments to the Week 2 Dropbox: (1) a Word doc with the questions and your answers and (2) a copy of the proposed regulation you used for this assignment. (10 points)
Illinois Department of Regulation – I am a hunter so this interests me and will impact me with the new deer hunting regulations.
This will affect me peripherally as the cost of the permits have increased.
2. Describe the proposal/change. (10 points)
The proposal increases the fee for late season deer permits and repeals the “group hunting” permit.
3. Write the public comment which you would submit to this proposal. If the proposed regulation deadline has already passed, write the comment you would have submitted. Explain briefly what you wish to accomplish with your comment. (10 points)
My comment is that group hunts were beneficial to the family who hunts together and I’m not sure why they are being repealed. Further, hunting is expensive and a set of permits for a family of 6 is now $105, instead of $90. Hunting deer is a benefit to the state of IL as there are over 45,000 car accidents due to deer and hunting is the only control mechanism the state uses.
I wish to have them reconsider this new rule.
4. Provide the "deadline" by which the public comment must be made. (If the date has already passed, please provide when the deadline was). (5 points)
This expires on 10/2/10.
5. a. Once you have submitted your comment, what will you be legally entitled to do later in the promulgation process (if you should choose to do so)? (See the textbook's discussion of the Administrative Procedure Act.)
(will provide after homework due)
b. If the proposal passes, identify and explain the five legal theories you could use in an attempt to have the regulation declared invalid and overturned in court.
(will provide after homework due)
c. Which of these challenges would be the best way to challenge the regulation you selected for this assignment if you wanted to have the regulation overturned and why?
(will provide after homework due)
Answer all of these questions for #5 even if you are in favor of your proposed regulation. The response to question 5 should be a minimum of 2-3 paragraphs long. (15 points)
