Scenario: Fameit Inc. (FI) is a manufacturing company that produces customize

Scenario: Fameit Inc. (FI) is a manufacturing company that produces customized frames using all sorts of materials to create frames for certificates, pictures, paintings, etc., all over the world. There are 100 employees divided between manufacturing and sales representatives, with about 20 staff assigned to managerial/administrative positions in the various departments. About 2 months ago, the head of production, James (in his position for the last 3 years), was in a meeting with his staff when the following conversation occurred:
Production manager James says at the end of a half-hour meeting to review the production schedule results: “Does anyone have anything to add concerning operations today?”
Production employee Maria: “Well, we are having some problems in production because some of our vendor acrylics are changing composition and are not resulting in the best quality of product when they come off the line. Someone needs to speak with our vendor.”
Production manager James: “Anyone else have that problem?” (He waits for 3 seconds for any response and then continues.) “Thanks everyone, I guess that wraps up this meeting. Now back to work!”
After a week, the production manager began to receive reports from the database system that quality control was rejecting some of the final products off the assembly line. In addition, customer complaints and returns now had gotten to the critical point, and executive management had been alerted.
The production manager had a special meeting of his department that same day and admonished the production team, saying:
“It is your responsibility to see that these products pass quality control. If there is a problem, you are to contact me. I hold you all responsible for this lapse in reporting this problem. I will decide shortly who will be working with me to resolve this issue.”
Production employee Maria just looked at her colleagues and said: “But boss, I did bring this up at the last meeting.”
Production manager James responded: “Well, if there was a problem as important as this one, you should have sent a follow-up memo to everyone.” Looking at Maria, he continued, “Someone may be losing their job over this!” Then he adjourned the meeting.
Production employee Maria, speaking to another employee after the meeting: “I absolutely should not lose my job over this; I told him there was a problem. I am going to lodge a complaint with the human resources department right away.”

regarding leadership, culture, values, and organizational structure, you will apply what you understand to a company trying to unite into a viable structure and culture.
Read the fictional scenario and address the checklist items.
Scenario (fictional):
BOT Inc. is a robotics software company with 100 employees located in Austin, Texas, in the United States. Up until now, the culture has been fairly strongly established as a rigid culture with detailed policies and procedures. Everyone has an explicit job descriiption. The company hires mostly locals, and only directors make any important decisions. The company has had a formal code of ethics, but it has not been enforced. As a result, there have been increasing incidents of personnel doing consulting work for other companies outside of work hours. The CEO is concerned that their robotics software could be compromised. Lately, as the company’s software has been increasingly sought out by robot-producing companies around the globe, the CEO realizes it is time to reimagine a more diverse, inclusive, and global company, while adhering to an ethical code of conduct with uniform responses to infringement.
The CEO knows they will soon need to hire at least another 20 sales staff and additional software developers to address this increasing global demand. The CEO wants to restructure the company while keeping company costs down as much as possible.

Continue using your Term Paper Template file, which you have renamed according to the following convention: LastnameFirstnameTermPaperOutline (eg., HandKarenTermPaperOutline). You will use this same file throughout the semester to complete each week’s assignment, and will turn in the completed file as your Term Paper at the end of Week 7.
This week you will write the Overview and Structure of the Business section of your term paper. What is the mission of your organization? How is your organization structured? What are the job roles and responsibilities of the different parts/units or your organization and the different employees of your organization? How do the roles and responsibilities of each unit and/or employee fit together into the mission of your organization? Are there different levels of employees, such as managers and lower level workers who will have different information technology needs? I am looking for a big picture view of your organization in this section. Later in your term paper, you will discuss the information technology of your proposed business in more detail. But here I am just trying to get a big picture of your organization itself and how everybody fits together to fulfill the mission of the organization. The organizational overview section should describe the structure of the business that you are proposing, focusing on the different levels of employees in the organization (upper management, middle management, operational management, and lower level employees, such as production and service workers, and data workers) and their IT needs (chapter 1). Other topics to cover in this section could include a descriiption of the main business processes in your business and the types of information systems and enterprise applications you will need to efficiently run the various business processes (chapter 2), and an analysis of your business against Porter’s competitive forces model, along with a recommendation for an appropriate strategy for your organization to gain a competitive advantage (chapter 3).
When you are finished, copy and paste the Overview and Structure of the Business section of your term paper into a post and post it to the discussion board.

Many researchers agree that the purpose of strategic management is to gather and direct company resources appropriately to achieve its goals. Lynch (2022), define purpose strategic management as the process of enhancing business performance through initiatives taken by business owners or managers that utilize resources. The case study “Eclipse Restaurant Group Video Case Study” (2019), presented by Stephanie Hogan shows a perfect example of efficient strategic management to evade the effects of SARs that caused a market meltdown in Hong Kong. Hogan (2019) was running Eclipse Restaurant Group when SARs occurred in Japan. She talks about how strategic management assisted the team to survive during the market collapse and did not have customers. In the video, Hogan (2019) suggests that one of the purposes of strategic management is helping the business adjust to the evolving market. Strategic management also helped the business to stay unique and provide essential services needed during the market breakdown. She was also able to manage her Profit and loss statement and at the same time provide quality food to guests.
The organization’s strategy determines the decisions made at every level of the business. According to Bruin (2020), the three main levels of a business strategy include; corporate, business, and functional strategy. Strategy at the corporate level guides the business to what it wants to achieve. The strategies at this level define the organization’s goals and objectives of the business. At the business unit level, the strategy focuses on how it will achieve the organization’s goals set at the corporate strategic level. The strategy at the business level defines the operations and how the business will carry out its activities to achieve its goals. The functional strategy focuses on how the business will efficiently carry out its operations to achieve its goals such as marketing and human resource strategy.
According to Bruin (2020), there are five key elements of strategic decisions that include; customers, implementation process, exploitation of linkages between business and environment, sustainable competitive advantage, and vision and purpose. They are principally related to creating competitive advantage in various ways. Customers relate to the other elements in that they are the crucial element that makes the buying decision. The implementation process connects to the vision and purpose of the company as it provides direction to achieve the objectives of the business to remain competitive. The element of offering sustainable competitive advantage connects to the other elements by initiating innovative processes that enhance sustainable growth. The element of exploiting the link between the organization and its environment to establish superior performance links with the other elements to create competitive advantage by providing the organization with better options for suppliers, customers, competitors, and even the government.
Strategic management has had disputes in the last 25 years concerning the differences between perspective and emergent strategic forms of management. The difference between the two strategic forms of management is that prescriiptive strategy is a clear and long-term strategy (MBA Knowledge Base, 2022). On the other hand, the emergent strategy tends to be reactive to events and adopts people’s needs during the development and implementation of the strategy (James, 2018). When developing a strategy, it is important to understand the business context to accurately choose the strategy that applies well to the business situation. For businesses that have objectives defined and have long-term goals, the prescriiptive strategy may be used while those that do not have a defined long-term objective and require adjustment of strategy as the environment changes can adopt emergent strategic management.
My thoughts on how the SARs virus was approached is that resilient businesses such as the Eclipse Restaurant Group could adjust their strategy depending on the environmental condition. The strategy that was most applicable during the period was the emergent strategy. With the emergence of a difficult market and environment during the SARs, it was prudent to set short-term goals and adjust the strategy to meet the new market demands. In the case study, Hogan appears to have adopted emergent strategic management to evade the difficult market conditions due to SARs. The CEO had to adjust the operation costs such as convincing employees to take a salary cut and still manage to make them stay motivated. They also adopted new marketing strategies to help the business get more sales without relying on walk-in clients alone. The adjustments are part of emergent strategic management to achieve the short-term goals of surviving during difficult market conditions.

Most manufacturing organizations have a service component which, if not incorporated into the business, will jeopardize the survival of the business.
Discuss the difference between the service industry and the manufacturing industry. How can you determine which organizations fall into which industry? Explain with examples if you can apply this to your own work or career, please include that content and examples as well. Please also include sources at the end of your post from your research.
I thought I would share this video with you about the processes from concept to finished movement for a brand that I’ve known about, but seems less common. My father gave me a Girard-Perregaux watch that my grandfather wore many years ago. Only recently did I start to wear it after changing the band to a more fitting and comfortable style. This seems to be a product requiring both manufacturing and service for example.
