Consider the case study of Apple from Assessment 1. The success of the change would not have relied entirely on Steve Jobs personality and his personal vision. The program of change would have had a vision that focused on the desired outcome of vitalizing Apple as a product of choice for consumers. 1. a. What steps might have been taken to promote the program vision?(5 marks) Start by choosing and prioritizing projects to ensure ties between the different projects and the strategic plan to avoid frustration, confusion and inefficient use of resources. Similarly, resources such as funds, people and equipment should be allocated taking into account a mechanism that distributes these resources according to need. It must be ensured that there is an organizational structure that supports projects to implement. It should also be given for commissioning, planning management, commissioning and monitoring. The selection of projects and prioritization system to guarantee the logical distribution of resources in the projects is of great importance to avoid setbacks in the process. b. How could it be communicated to all stakeholders? (5 marks) Communication to interested parties is of great importance in the execution of the project. This action must be carried out continuously in the hands of the negotiations between the interested parties according to the program and its vision. The main purpose of carrying out this communication is to improve the objectives of the planning and to monitor the expected results as well as to establish the projections to improve the professionalism and collaboration of the interested parties. 2. What would have been required to build an environment of confidence and trust, given that there had been a number of CEOs between Jobs’ removal as CEO and his return? (5 marks) If you want to foster an environment of trust, it is very important that the leader leads the operation, in order to build trust in the work group. Likewise, deficiencies must be identified to reduce the risk of adverse situations while driving the team to give confidence in the team. To guarantee the mission and vision, the work team must guarantee the following: Maintain good communication. Work on relationship building -Stakeholder participation Stakeholder engagement Promote a supportive culture.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
