Imagine that you have created a blog where you post about various issues important to you and your friends and others studying in your field. Write a 1 - 1 and 1/2 page double spaced blog post that educates your audience about an issue that the article you selected raises. Make sure you provide your audience with the author's name, title and a link to the article as well as a summary of relevant information from the article, but go beyond summary. Add to what the author says in some way (one way to do that is to disagree, or engage in debate, or explore a point further than it is addressed in the article), and be sure that you make clear to your audience why the issue you are informing them about is relevant to them in some way. For example, if you have a family member with a disease like diabetes, you might want to write a blog post explaining what you have learned about the importance of a healthy diet.
After watching the scenario, completing the assigned readings and completing the practice Learning Activities, paying particular attention to the section on authority, compose an interoffice memo from Lei to Dalman. The purpose of the memo is to describe the impact of creating this new position. In typing your memo from Lei to Dalman, be sure to respond to the following:
1. How would creating a new coordinating position between the CEO and the location managers help the business to grow?
2. Is promoting an existing manager the best option to fill this position? If not, what is an alternative source to fill the position?
3. Who within the company should make these decisions?
4. List the levels of authority (management) that Sandwich Blitz, Inc. would have if the new position is created.
Dalman and Lei have discussed two possible avenues to grow and expand Sandwich Blitz, Inc. One possible strategy would be to franchise locations. Another strategy would be to secure venture capital to finance an internal expansion by opening more company-owned shops. Dalman feels that he just does not have time to investigate these options because he is spending an increasing amount of his time assisting the location managers. Lei noted that two of the location managers have exhibited a lot of skill in the management of their locations and perhaps a new position could be added to coordinate with the location managers. This would free Dalman to work on these larger issues.
