research paper 1722

  • Preparation

    Suppose leadership in the organization where you currently work (or have worked) is considering changes to organizational structure—in particular, to the functional areas it currently has. Before making any changes, the leaders have asked several managers, including you, to develop a white paper that outlines the managers’ recommendations for three functional areas that they believe to be essential to the success of the company. Based on the recommendations of each manager, as well as the strength of each manager’s arguments and supporting references, leadership will make final decisions.Different areas within organizations work together to achieve organizational goals. These areas are often referred to as functional areas and typically include:

    • Human resources.
    • Sales and marketing.
    • Information technology.
    • Production and operations.
    • Finance and accounting.

    Use 3–7 reputable resources to support your writing in this assessment.
