Analyze and manage the requirements for building coordination and teamwork in an organization. Build the Foundation
Your company, Organizing Companies for Performance, Inc., (OCPI) has a client that requests intervention.
This client is a software company, Killer App Software, that grew from a husband and wife team to a staff of
170 in a few short years. There was no real organization design plan in play from the inception of the company.
Instead, the company added staff and departments as they thought they were needed. The husband and wife
who started the company still run it, but they want to retire in 3-5 years. They have asked you to lead a
reorganization of the company that will allow the couple to meet their retirement goals and the company to run
successfully after their retirement.
Your company, Organizing Companies for Performance, Inc. (OCPI), has just finished and proposed a plan of
redesign for the client organization, Killer App Software. Killer App Software has decided to implement it.
For this Individual Project, you will create a presentation for the owners of Killer App Software on what it needs
to do to ensure that the company is properly managed after implementing the new organizational design. The
company is asking you for specific recommendations.
Killer App Software recently spoke with the president of another software development company who
implemented a similar design for her organization, only to lose a major contract because of the inability of that
organization to implement the new design.
That company had terrible problems with communication and teamwork between departments. This caused the
company to lose a major client. The owners of Killer App Software do not want this to happen to them. They
want to have the implementation go smoothly and even improve coordination and teamwork. They have asked
for a PowerPoint presentation that recommends what they should do to ensure that this does not happen in
Create a PowerPoint presentation that provides the following:
Recommendations of how to ensure proper management after the new organization design is implemented
How to sustain the new organization design in the midst of resistance
How to create and sustain team coordination and teamwork
You should use at least 3 external sources from the literature on coordination and teamwork as it applies to
implementing a new organizational design. Some of the sources should be theoretical articles, and some
should be oriented toward practitioners.
