Organizational Foundations

Instructions

This course has major project assignments that will be due in Weeks 3 and 5. It will take more than a week’s effort to adequately complete them. Plan time to start the research and other work for those assignments earlier than the week in which they are due.

The shared values, vision, and mission statements are the foundations of a healthy organization. Utilizing the same organization, you chose in the Week 1 portion of the course project and building off the discussion this week, address the following topics about the organization you have selected:

  • Assess the effectiveness of the organization’s values statement:
    • What is the values statement or what are the organizational values?
    • How was the values statement created? Who participated?
    • How accurate is the values statement when compared to actual behaviors in the organization?
    • What recommendations would you make to improve the values statement and to enhance how it is used in organizational behaviors and decision making?
    • If your organization does not have a values statement, assess key themes from organizational practices that might reflect actual values being used (even if not written) and defend recommendations for how the organization could develop a values statement and enhance organizational behaviors.
  • Analyze the effectiveness of the vision statement.
    • What is the vision statement?
    • Do organizational members know what the vision is? Based on what evidence?
    • Do organizational members embrace the vision? Based on what evidence?
    • What recommendations would you make to improve the vision statement and to enhance how well it inspires organizational members?
    • If your organization does not have a vision statement, assess key themes from organizational practices that might reflect the organization’s vision (even if not written) and defend recommendations for how the organization could develop a vision statement and enhance organizational behaviors.
  • Evaluate how aligned the mission statement is with the vision statement.

    • Are the mission and vision statements compatible? Based on what evidence?
    • What role does each statement (mission and vision) contribute to the organizational purpose?
    • Do the mission and vision statements reflect organizational values?
    • If your organization does not have a mission statement, assess key themes from organizational practices that might reflect the organization’s mission (even if not written) and defend recommendations for how the organization could develop a mission statement, align it to vision, and enhance organizational behaviors.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of the current organizational structure.
