One of the most important competencies that the MBA program hopes to develop in its students is principle application skills; that is, to be able to understand foundational principles, theories, and concepts, and apply them to real-world business contexts. This assignment will provide you an opportunity to practice these skills as you will identify a production or service problem in your organization or that of a client; the problem must be real at the time you work on the assignment.
You will write an analysis highlighting the specific production/service process challenge. It is critical that you include the company mission/vision statement and relevance of problem to the mission and vision.
In your paper, you can include company background information, historical information relevant to the problem, production/service process problem, conceptual framework (based on relevant concepts and principles in periods 1 and 2 only), current production methods, findings and solutions to the problem. These elements form as required sections in your paper.
In the discussion, include an analysis of the problem's root causes and other issues relevant to the framework identified.
Prepare your initial recommendations based on the solution. Your case must demonstrate knowledge and application of course content (concepts and principles) covered in Periods 1 & 2.
Format: Your audience for this paper is practicing managers in the specific industry. The paper should be appropriately organized to clearly outline and describe the items mentioned above in the Content section, and should be 2000 words in length. Use the Harvard reference style.
