1. The organization is BP like BP gas station's but, I need the PowerPoint presentation to be about the BP organization. I need to create a 7-10 PowerPoint presentation addressing the following: (first step) Evaluate the planning function of management as it relates to the organization's goals and strategies. Use steps in the planning process outlined in the text. The steps are: Planning: Delivering Strategic Value - planning and strategic management, ethics and corporate responsibility, international management and entrepreneurship. Organizing: Building a Dynamic Organization - organization structure, organizational agility, human resources management and managing the diverse workforce. Leading: Mobilizing People - leadership, motivating for performance, teamwork and communicating. Controlling: Learning and Changing - managerial control, managing technology and innovation and creating and managing change. 2. Analyze the influence that legal issues, ethics, and corporate social responsibility have had on management planning at BP. Provide at least one example for each. 3.

Expert:  Lani S. replied 1 year ago.

Ok, so shall we take a look at BP (British Petroleum) organization for this?

When do you need the PowerPoint presentation?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yes BP (British Petroleum), I need this by tomorrow noon.

Expert:  Lani S. replied 1 year ago.

I will start on this after I get your reply to my queries. :)

 

Just to clarify, management functions include PLOC (Planning, Leading, Organizing, and Controlling)

 

In this presentation, we will focus only on the planning function, is that right?

So that will cover this --Planning: Delivering Strategic Value - planning and strategic management, ethics and corporate responsibility, international management and entrepreneurship.

 

 

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yes, Lani S. That is correct.

Expert:  Lani S. replied 1 year ago.
Ok, thanks.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


Lani S, don't forget the PowerPoint needs to provide an example of each: legal issues, ethics, and corporate social responsibility have had on management planning at BP. The PowerPoint also needs to analyze at least three factors that influence the company's strategic, tactical, operational, and contingency planning.

Expert:  Lani S. replied 1 year ago.
Yes, we will be looking on those points. :)
Customer: replied 1 year ago.


ok Thanks

Expert:  Lani S. replied 1 year ago.

Ok, I will have that ready tomorrow.

I need additional research to put more information on the slides.

No need to respond to this now. :)

Customer: replied 1 year ago.


Analyze at least three factors that influence the BP company's strategic. 1. What I found was: Avantium announces a three-year extension of this strategic research collaboration with BP, one of the world's largest energy companies. Avantium provides innovative, high-value-added R&D services and tools to the energy, chemicals and pharmaceutical industries, and has a long standing relationship with BP. The collaboration builds on the strategic relationship between BP and Avantium that was initiated in 2005. The strategic research collaboration in the area of purified terephthalic acid (PTA) is extended for a period of 3 years.

Abstract


One of the key elements of strategic planning for information systems (IS) is the integration of IS planning (ISP) and business planning (BP). Although this issue has received significant attention in recent years, empirical research focusing specifically on it is still relatively sparse. Here, BP-ISP integration is considered in four ways (administrative, sequential, reciprocal, and full integration), reflecting various degrees of BP-ISP integration. The relationships between these and organizational impact (measured in terms of the extent of ISP problems and the extent of IS contributions to organizational performance) are investigated through the analysis of data gathered in a “matched pair” field survey of business planners and IS executives. The results empirically validate the importance of BP-ISP integration, since it was found to have a significant positive relationship with IS contributions to organization performance and a significant negative relationship to the extent of ISP problems.

Assessing the impact of proactive versus reactive modes of strategic information systems planning



  • a Katz Graduate School of Business, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA 15260, USA

  • b Department of Decision Sciences, Faculty of Business Administration, National University of Singapore, 10 Kent Ridge Crescent, Singapore 119260, Singapore











Abstract


Integration between business planning (BP) and information systems planning (ISP) is crucial for the information systems (IS) function to more effectively support business strategies. This study examines two modes of ISP — reactive and proactive — as defined by the extent of BP–ISP integration. Questionnaires were sent to 600 firms (addressed to IS executives and business planners) and 157 usable matched responses were received (26.2% response rate). Statistical analyses determined that firms operating in a proactive mode had significantly higher status for IS executive, significantly greater perceived IS contributions to organizational performance and significantly fewer ISP problems than did those operating in a reactive planning mode. Prescriptions such as IS plans should be as comprehensive and complete as possible; and involvement of top managers and users is important for greater perceived benefits of ISP, are made based on the results.
