Integrated Management Project
The issue/problem identified in organization is that Oman Air is facing a current issue to major in employee performance or poor employee performance.( you can rephrase this problem definition if not correct or please suggest a more appropriate problem that can be analysed from the various topics/ theories I have covered so far in mba, but you need to let me know before you proceed).I need you as mentioned below to analyse the problem from the different MBA units I have covered and to provide a recommendation to solve the issue.This assignment will be submitted as a draft and after feed back have to add part 2 a literature review and reflective report which I will be given in next semester.Hence I hope to work with you again and you will keep this noted.
The units I have coverd as stated below are LMP ( leading and managing people) Please use theories such as high performance work practices, Guest model of HPW and please use Jefrey Pffer hpw practices.I will upload all the assignments for you to refer which theories I learnt and want to use in this assignment as I donâ€™t want to refer to other theories I havenâ€™t studied I wont understand and will loose marks.
LP (leadership project) Please use only Dr, Clare Grave value system theory only and not other leadership theories.You can refer to my previous Lp assignment when I upload.
MCI (Mobilising creativity and innovation).Please use theries such as brainstorming, Van gundys etc, refer to my MCI assignment and use the mentioned theories
The other topics/units such as strategy, marketing finance are mentioned below.
Please ensure that it is integrated nature, that is using all these theories from all mentioned topics must be used to analyse the problem and recommend only a sol:ution.
For Introduction state what has to be done and how, provide a context of the Industry and background to the airline oman air ( you can go to omanair website or also use CAPA centre for aviation as reference ).
IMP -1( Integtated Management Project) is a 4000 word submission that addresses the assessment brief, which is to produce a report that:
Identifies an issue in your organisation that has multiple and varied approaches to its resolution. The issue need not be one of failure but may be a challenge facing an organisation. This should be current or impending but not a past issue. You will identify and integrate a range of theories and techniques drawn from multiple appropriate disciplines from your MBA in the creation of appropriate solutions.
How will you approach this assessment? Answer: By elaborating on the proposal and addressing the areas that the unit tutor has indicated in the feedback to your proposal. Explain which theories, tools and techniques are being used and justify their choices. Remember that the integrated nature of the problem is critical here.
In-text references and citations are required at this stage.
Once you have framed the problem you will identify and discuss theories, models and paradigms related to the problem. Make sure that you look at the problem from different points of view and relate them to your learning from as many different units of the MBA. For example:
â€¢ People â€“ LMP, LP, MCI â€“ how does your problem/ solution impact on the team & company? Performance, leadership, managing creativity/innovation etc.
â€¢ Financial aspect â€“ AfL â€“ How will your solution improve/ impact positively on the financial aspect of the company?
â€¢ Marketing â€“ How does your problem/solution impact on the marketing dimension?
â€¢ Strategy â€“ From the Strategy unit (Business Strategy) TCGC (locating your problem / organisation within the wider context of global business/ sector â€“ macro-environmental impact â€“ PESTEL, etc.) or business models and strategies from the unit on Entrepreneurship and Small Business
â€¢ Operations Management â€“ How does the problem/solution impact on the supply chain, procurement and operational management issues?
â€¢ Project management â€“ Consider the models for managing change and other project management theories or models. Can any of these be applied to your problem area? You may use the soft and hard systems approach within this context. Is there any other approach that would be appropriate? If so, present it (with appropriate referencing) and explain how and why it is more suitable to the task at hand.
This is not an exhaustive list and you may want to broaden the range of theories as you see fit.
Again the unit tutor will be assessing the submission and indicating broadly whether it is headed in the right direction. This is not a graded submission. It is, however, critical that all students make this submission as it ensures that they are well on track to have worked on a substantial part of the unitâ€™s final assessment
