Here is the scenario and situation:

Assume you are an employee working in the Amazon warehouse, and you
pack orders and categorize them into small, medium, and large batches.
You are considered a packer. You have experience packing all sizes and
have been with the organization for two years. You are considered one of
their best employees, you have a solid reputation for being a hard
worker, and all of your orders are packed correctly. You have also been
busy; you recently completed Amazon’s management training program, and
you have completed your BABA degree at the Forbes School of Business and
Technology at Ashford University.

Congratulations: You have just been promoted to manager. You will be
relocated to a new plant that is two hours away that employs 100
employees. You will oversee a team of 10 supervisors and 90 packers and
will now oversee the entire warehouse operation. How will you work to
use and apply the five functions of management?

Now let’s apply the five functions. In your paper, include the following sections:

  • Planning: Examine the specific areas you will choose to manage that fall under the planning function.
    • For example, what might be some of the things you will plan to do
      and implement to build an effective team and culture? People are the
      most important resource in any business, what do you plan to do to build
      a positive team culture? What processes and systems do you plan to use?
  • Organizing: Assess if the present structure that Amazon has set up is working.
    • Do you need to make or suggest any changes to make it more efficient
      and effective? What structure will you use and implement? Explain how
      you will use departmentalization in your organizational structure.
  • Staffing: Analyze your staffing needs.
    • How do you intend to staff your organization and replace members
      that leave or are promoted? How does the HR process apply? What things
      (if any) will you suggest?
  • Leading: Justify the leadership theory and style you will follow to ensure efficiency.
    • Will you use transformational or transactional leadership? Why or why not?
  • Controls: Identify what controls and measures you will implement.
    • How will you apply the four steps of control (these are in Chapter
      5; i.e., establishing standards, measuring performance, comparing
      performance, and making decisions)?
