Hello, my name is Greg.
Are you seeking resources to use as you prepare your own final response or for a newly written model?
Is there any additional information (rubrics, files, etc) that you can provide (if a file, you can upload using a file sharing site, such as, and then share the link here).

Hi Greg, sorry I didn't clarify at the beginning. So this question is part of a discussion board at my university where I study IT management class. I'm new to IT management but have a good experience as software developer. So I need help on this.
Our teacher is asking basically if I was working in IT organization as a manager and my manager would ask me to provide alternative organization structures. I have attached the word document with the same question but better formatted, hopefully this will help. I don't have any other supporting files.I would really appreciate your help on this and I will have more questions to come later!Thanks!

After going through my resources, I do not have what is necessary to complete at this time.
I am opting out and opening up to the other professionals and messaging a couple who might be able to help.
Someone should be with you shortly.

Actually I have already submitted my assignment and the answer is no longer needed.
Is this possible to get a refund or credit back, since I have not received the answer from you?
