Organizational Theory

Choose a company to study, and answer the following
questions about it.

1. What is the name of the organization? Give a short
account of the history of the company. Describe the way it has grown and
developed.

2. What does the organization do? What goods and services
does it produce/ provide? What kind of value does it create? If the company has
an annual report, what does the report describe as the company’s organizational
mission?

3.  Do an initial
analysis of the organization’s major problems or issues. What challenges
confront the organization today—for example, in its efforts to attract
customers, to lower costs, to increase operating efficiency? How does its
organizational design relate to these problems?
