Decision-making process.-Sometimes It is hard to make some decision regarding the operation and management of the business. In this case, when Morris was killed it became hard for his successor to not only sells the company but also to decide to whom the company will be sold.
Family commitments and age-Family commitments can be a challenge and a significant barrier to those managing a business. In our case, Vance Morris had just married before being made the successor of the Pigs RUS Company, and this made it hard for him to continue managing the company since he wanted to concentrate more on the family. He was also mid-thirties. This could be the reason why the company employed mostly those were above forty years of age.
Little knowledge of management-Vance Morris and his cousins were professional people and knew nothing about business and pork. Thus, they chose to sell the company to another company since they could not manage it.
Lack of cooperation from employees-Many employees and old managers resisted the idea of selling the company to another company only because of fear of working in a foreign country, language barrier and electronic system that was to be put in place. This becomes a challenge for the managers to put those changes in place.
Use a system that involves all the employees in decision making. The “old fashion” kind of management used by Pigs R Us Company was excellent. It makes everyone in the company feel like part of the company and actively provides an innovative decision in the company. Instead of Vance Morris deciding to sell the company he could have asked his current employees on the best management techniques since they had some knowledge on business and more specific on pork products.
Balance time for family and business-even though Vance Morris become a successor a short time after getting married and at relative he had to balance time for his family for him to be able to manage the company successfully.
Education and training on business management-Vance Morris and his cousins had to undergo some training and education on how to manage a business since they had little knowledge of the company. This could help them to get skills on how to manage and run the business successfully instead of making a quick decision of selling it.
Informing employees about the importance of change-The managers should inform their employees of any changes to be made concerning the operations of the business so that they get prepared.
One should take into consideration the existing culture and the effects that may arise when that culture is changed, whether positive or negative. In our case, SHU has an idea of retaining the old employees so as maintain the southern culture of such people (SONG, Song, ZHANG, LIAO, & Yang, 2018). However, this will need some evaluation of the employees and resignation as the new structure is put in place. Culture changes can also be done through developing existing skills and potentials through teamwork and collaboration. In addition, culture change can be implemented through job growth and training. One may also use different languages to overcome language barriers from different people in a different region
Chin started an operation know as a pilot change in packaging area to show the importance of using technology by buying and setting 3D printers which could make reusable shipping materials a fast and easy. The current system could support five workers during the day and three workers at night. He also evaluated and reassigned employees to new and flats structure in place (Channon, D’Souza, Jarrett, Lee, Watling, Jolley, & Dunshea, 2018). He also increased the business’s competitive edge and developed existing individual potential through group collaboration. He also supported job training and growth in the carrier.
The workers can learn to communicate in different languages to adapt to different languages in different regions. The managers should start traveling in different countries to familiarize themselves with different technology used by different companies. Workers can also exercise their cultures like those who ate carried their food and ate together to show their southern culture.
The change can be reinforced through continuous training of employees and managers on the usage of the platform to be implemented. Employees can also be taught different languages to make them suit in different regions and be able to communicate with different people (Xu, & Wang, 2018). Managers can also be encouraged to travel to different countries so that they may learn new technologies used by other companies and implement them in their companies.
The organization changes will consequently lead to changes in the pinyin food in future. This is because employees will be evaluated and resigned duties as the new platform are implemented and grouped into respective grouped where they best fit. These changes may include some employees retiring, tainted foods in the future, loss of product quality and loss of southern culture.
The reason behind the retirement of employees is the introduction of a new culture, new management which they may find unfavorable and language barrier which may hinder their communication (Richards, Yoho, Chong, & Popovič, (2019).). For the tainted food and loss of product quality is because of the use of new technologies which may not preserve food appropriately.
Every organization starts with a specific goal. Pigs RUS Company has several setbacks starting from the management to the service delivery. John manages the company with his college degree. He lacks management skills. John is not exposed to the market (Kusi-Sarpong, Gupta, Sarkis, 2018). As the managing director, John should be able to understand the market well. Traveling helps in getting a new market. Majority of organizations exist to make profits. Top management should, therefore, hold on the main goal of the organizations. Leaders and managers need to have some professional skills like team building skills, communication skills technological skills and should also be in a position to motivate workers. Employees should be willing to change and support the decision made by the top management for the smooth running of their business. Once the decisions are made the managers should ensure that they are followed and they also train the employees on any new change in the system they using so as to provide efficient and reliable services to its customers. The measurable factors show clearly the progress of the company. The company should employ skilled labor to ensure delivery of service is of high quality. Management skills can be trained to the top managers so that they can run the business professionally. Lack of managerial skills will affect the growth of the company. Age is very crucial in business management. The company should consider employing young and energetic people instead of employing old people to serve during the day (Crowther, 2018). Maybe the company can put the old people to help during the night shift.
