I need a 759-1000 word essay on the following including references.

Imagine you are a manager of a DVD manufacturing plant. Your facility manufactures DVDs for sale to distributors and you’re seeing changes in the industry, especially with the advent of new technologies such as Blu Ray and the rising popularity of streaming video such as Hulu and Netflix. It seems as though Blu Ray discs, which your firm doesn’t manufacture, are taking over the shelf space at stores everywhere.

Describe the four stages of the product life cycle.

DVDs and DVD players were introduced to the public just 20 years ago; describe what stage of the product life cycle DVDs are currently in and why you feel this to be true, incorporating some of the changes in the way people watch movies.

Course Project: Change Management

The course project has major 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.

Change Management

Using the same organization that you selected in Week 1 (Coca-Cola Company),  propose a change that your organization could implement that would aid  it strategically. The proposed change might relate to some area of need,  performance deficiency, or other opportunity that you observe in the  organization. Note: You will be proposing a change initiative  related to motivation in next week’s assignment. Accordingly, focus your  change project for this week’s paper in a direction other than  motivation.

Write a paper addressing the following:

  • Describe the change that you propose and defend its benefits to the organization.
  • Evaluate how the proposed change may affect various groups of employees.
  • Assess the conflicts that might occur before, during, and after the change, including why you anticipate these conflicts.
  • Defend at least three best practices to prevent or resolve those conflicts.
  • Justify the channels of communication the organization should use in implementing this change.

***(This paper needs to be 4-5 pages in length, not including cover page and reference page (6-7 pages total) with at least 3-4 references in APA format)***

The first paper is attached also as reference.

For the Adjective Activity Assignment that you completed in the Unit 4: Organizing, the class was divided into two randomly selected groups.

Here are the results for the exercise:

  • One group averaged responses per person.
  • The other group averaged  responses per person.

As you can see, one group outperformed the other by a considerable margin. Both teams completed the same exercise, were given the same adjectives, and followed the same set of rules. Why do you think the results were different?

The literature review builds on the annotated bibliography. For the topic you chose for your annotated bibliography in Module 2, complete the following:

  • Go through your annotated bibliography.
  • Based on the information presented in your annotated bibliography sources (and others if needed), define a problem statement that, in your opinion, would be useful and practical for you to investigate.
  • Organize your sources by sorting and classifying their findings in a meaningful way, always considering your original topic and problem.
  • Write a literature review that would seem to offer the greatest potential for developing a good theoretical framework, using seven to ten references. All of these can be from your annotated bibliography, or you can use others in addition to those in your annotated bibliography.
  • Develop the theoretical framework incorporating its basic functions as discussed in the text. 
  • Generate a set of testable hypotheses based on your research question and the theoretical framework.

W6 Discussion #1

Accounting

In our readings this week, the authors of our textbook described how several businesses have made decisions to spend more money upfront, hoping that they will save money down the road. For example, Staples purchased electric delivery trucks that cost more than diesel trucks, yet the savings in gas and maintenance are anticipated to make up for this expense. With this kind of decision-making, businesses are using the concept of time regarding money. We also learned about budgeting in Chapter 9. Have you developed a budget for your personal income and expenses? Let’s think of something close to home for this week’s discussion forum conversation.

In your initial post, compare the information pertaining to Master Budgets (chapter 9) to your personal budget (you do not need to provide actual number!) If you were to use your personal budget as business managers use the Master Budget, you would probably find some areas where you could save money, or make a change so that you will have more money in the future.

Provide an example of investing in something that will hopefully realize future profits (incorporating alternative energy sources as you build your new home; buying a hybrid vehicle for your next car; switching to a “whole food” diet rather than buying pre-packaged foods). Give enough information in your example so that your peers can address the following questions in their replies.

How did the example illustrate the time value of money concept?

How was the Net Present Value concept illustrated?

How was the payback period determined?

W6 Discussion #2

Accounting

This week, you were asked to access a number of videos and websites. These are great resources to help you learn the materials this week. Consider what type of resource you find most helpful in learning new materials (videos, examples, text, etc). Then consider which topic you struggled with the most this week. Complete an online search for a new resource that will help you with that topic. For example, if you learn best from videos and you struggled with the topic double entry accounting, then complete an online search for “double entry accounting videos”. If you learn best by examples, search for “double entry accounting examples”. Select one of the items you find in your search that you found particularly helpful in learning the topic you struggled with the most and post a summary of the resource and a link to the resource.

INITIAL POST

Cite and summarize the resource.

Assignment Description

Primary Task Response: Within the discussion board area, write up to 600 words that respond to the following questions with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. This will be the foundation for future discussions with your classmates. Be substantive and clear, and use examples to reinforce your ideas: 

At your next scheduled lunch meeting, Rae Marie continues to share challenges with her transition to her new leadership role as the Vice President of Operations for MyShoppingSpreeTV. Based on the current climate of her department and its declining productivity, she questions her earlier career success. She is having doubts about her current leadership capabilities needed for her new role. For several years, Rae Marie, a former colleague and long-time friend, had been a successful manager for a company you worked at together years ago. You witnessed her previous successes and have confidence in her leadership.  

She confessed, “what if I had been successful in the past because of the great economy?” “The techniques I used in the past do not seem to be working here.” 

You acknowledge that all organizational situations and climates are different, and what is required in one situation will not always work in another.  

On the Discussion Board, consult with your classmates and offer your recommendations on how to decide the best course of action and the leadership style needed for different situations. For this discussion, you must research Fiedler’s contingency model and Blanchard’s situational model. In your discussion, compare and contrast Fielder’s contingency model and Blanchard’s situational model. Evaluate the course scenario (the situation at MyShoppingSpreeTV), and identify which of Fielder’s preferred leadership styles is most applicable to this situation. For full-credit, you must address the following in your posting: 

  • How can Fiedler’s contingency Model and      Blanchard’s situational model be applied in different organizational      settings?
  • In which type of organization would you recommend the      utilization of Fiedler’s contingency theory of leadership or Blanchard’s      situational model? Explain why.  

Cite all references in a reference list. Be sure to reference all sources using APA format. For more information on APA, please visit the APASTYLE Lab.  

Responses to Other Students: 

Respond to at least 2 of your fellow classmates with at least a 100-word response about their Primary Task Response regarding items you found to be compelling and enlightening. To help you with your discussion, please consider the following questions: 

  • What did you learn from your classmates posting?
  • What additional questions do you have after reading the      posting?
  • What clarification do you need regarding the posting?
  • How would this topic be of value to you in your life or      career?
