Imagine you are a CEO or president of your current company or another actual large corporation. To improve your leadership skills you want to make sure you understand your business and the work environment and what is going on. You decide to go undercover in your organization and report your findings. Do this for a real company, not made up ! Answer the following questions in your paper: –Describe your company, what you do/product, how many employees worldwide, divisions, etc. –What countries does your company reside in? What cultural aspects do you need to be aware of? How do you handle those aspects? –What is the company’s vision/mission statement and goals? –What leadership styles are used by your managers /supervisors worldwide; how are they blended to meet the organizations goals? –What leadership qualities do you want in your managers, leaders, supervisors, employees and why. –What Ethical and social responsibilities do you uncover that may need to be addressed and how? –Perform SWOT analysis on your company –What planning process(es) do your leaders use to produce your products (and /or produce a quality service), are they using them correctly, what do they accomplish? –Does your company have any Joint Ventures, are they successful and why? Go Undercover! Give 3 examples of you going undercover in different areas/regions and jobs and tell what you found. How would you correct any problems, what suggestions would you make. If you are using your own company, go ask people in other departments and other locations what are some issues they see—are they around quality, HR items, schedules, ethical items, management, etc.? Everyone can find something related to their company, either in person or something that has been in the news. –Evaluate your leaders and how they have impacted the business, how will you develop your leaders and showcase their performance. How will it affect other leaders in your organization? You can add other aspects we have learned about in our readings, class discussions, etc. Please do your paper on a REAL company, not one that is made up. The area around undercover will have the highest weight of the grade of the paper.
