MGMT Question 4


Review the Case Study (Testing Baseball Players DNA) on page 49 of the attached PDF and answer the following questions. Minimum 250 words and 2 references. No format required. The questions DO NOT count as part of the word count.

 Many experts in genetics consider testing an unethical violation of personal privacy. What does it mean to “violate personal privacy”? Can a utilitarian argument (the greatest good for the greatest number should be sought) in favor of DNA testing in the Dominican Republic be mounted? What could it look like? Baseball scouting—the job of hiring excellent future players and screening out mediocre ones—is very competitive. Those who do it well are paid well; those who don’t are cycled out quickly to make room for someone else. You have the job, you have the DNA sample. What do you do? Why?

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 *** School of Business and Technology at ****  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.

o 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.

o 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.

o 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.

o Will you use transformational or transactional leadership? Why or why not?

• Controls: Identify what controls and measures you will implement.

o 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)?

Strategic Principles of Consensus Organizing

The Strategic Principles of Consensus Organizing

Can you teach people how to be strategic? It’s a question that trainers and teachers often ask as they approach a new training program or a classroom full of eager faces. Thinking strategically and pragmatically is the hallmark of a good consensus organizer. Consensus organizing is based on several key strategic principles that are the fundamental beliefs and values that guide the implementation of the model and its activities. These principles also express the philosophy and the attitude behind the consensus organizing approach. As consensus organizers begin to enter a community, these principles are at the forefront of their minds as their organizing strategy takes shape. This chapter explains these principles and why they are important to consensus organizing.

Table 3.1 summarizes the five core strategic principles of consensus organizing (Consensus Organizing Institute, n.d.).

Table 3.1 Strategic Principles of Consensus OrganizingStrategic PrincipleKey StrategiesExampleSolutions to local problems should come from affected communities.Strategies and objectives are set by the community.Incorporate community’s existing social networks.Analyze and identify individual self-interests and mutual community interests and build relationships based on those interests.Residents bring recent crime problems to the attention of the local police and ask for assistance in developing a crime watch program. The local police work with residents to develop a neighborhood watch. Relationships are built between residents and the police.Pragmatic leadership is present in communities, though not always recognized.Identify trusted, respected, behind-the-scenes leaders.Position leaders to take responsibility for effort.Build leaders’ skills and confidence to succeed.An older woman to whom young mothers turn for parenting help.

A teacher who stays after school hours to help his students with their studies.Self-interest can be harnessed as a motivation for improving the welfare of communities.Analyze and identify the interests of members of external power structure (e.g., government, philanthropy, corporate, social service).Position them to make genuine contributions aligned with their and the community’s interests.A local foundation director who has $1 million to improve housing in local distressed neighborhoods, but who does not have relationships with community-based organizations located in those neighborhoods.If a project achieves its short-term goals without positioning the participants to make even greater gains in the future, then an opportunity has been missed.Position community leaders to take the lead on projects.Use short-term projects to build community’s skills and relationships with power structure to lay the foundation for more comprehensive efforts.A neighborhood cleanup that builds relationships among residents and between residents and the city can lead to new opportunities, such as improved code enforcement and the rehab of dilapidated housing in cleanup area.Building relationships and strategically positioning leaders to make a program work requires time, care, and finesse.Understand and gain trust of leaders of the community and power structure.Break down stereotypes and misperceptions that community and power structure have of one another.Invest the time up front to position leaders of the community and power structure to develop genuine strategic partnerships.

 Going to churches, agencies, and community organization meetings, and meeting residents one-on-one in their homes. Attending local housing symposiums, city council meetings, and chamber of commerce meetings, as well as meeting one-on-one with members of the external power structure.

Examine a case of ethical responsibility to shareholders, stakeholders and the public. Merck faced the dilemma of whether to develop, test and market a drug which might not produce a profitable return.


In 1978, Merck, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, undertook major research to develop new drugs. This occurred as two of its blockbuster drugs were about to go off patent. One of the drugs they developed was capable of curing a rare disease that resulted in blindness. The drug that they found, ivermectin, showed promise in curing the rare disease; however, the cost of testing and marketing the drug would be very high, resources were limited and the people who needed the drug were in poor parts of the world.
