Assignment: Applying a Model to Address a Business Process Change

In your Reading you reviewed the Capability Maturing Model (CMM) and in the Learning Activity you briefly practiced with the Kotter 8-Step Model. Now you will apply one of these models to address a business process change needed at the organization of your choice. You will also apply Porter’s 3-phase process from the learning activity to suggest a strategy and steps to be taken in each phase.

Prepare your original Business Process Change in a Word document using APA format. Use the Writing Center accessed through the Academic Tools area of the course by selecting Academic Support Center. You can also consult APA Central located in the Academic Tools area as well.

Do some research to obtain your selected specific industry and/or organization resources. If confidentiality is a concern regarding the organization you selected, choose a publicly traded company instead. Ultimately it is your responsibility to ensure you do not share any of an organization’s proprietary information.


Checklist:


  • Select one industry

    from those recommended below and then

    choose one of three types of organizations

    provided for that industry. Select an existing company in that industry or use your current organization and industry, and do some research. Then choose a business process change at that company you might propose and address the checklist items (a) through (f).



Medical Care:

Hospital; Clinic; Hospice



Manufacturing:

Computers; Textiles; Electronic Equipment



Service Industry:

The organization for which you work.

(Be careful not to share proprietary information.)

(b) Describe the organization’s size (locations, divisions, employees) and summarize the primary mission and vision of the organization. Do not simply copy from the organization’s mission or vision statements.

(c) Based on your research of the organization, identify and explain a single business process change that the organization will need to undertake in the coming year. The change can result from new or improved technologies, economic issues, or changes in the marketplace.

(d) Utilizing either (1) the Capability Maturing Model (CMM) or (2) the Kotter 8 Step Model from the Learning Activity, outline briefly what changes need to be undertaken at each of the stages.

-Explain how using the chosen business process will improve organizational performance.
