Notes: Slide 1: Downsizing is the topic for our course project. With the way economics has been for last year or two, downsizing has been a common practice so we thought it was a good topic for our project. We are going to analysis this case by using Jay Galbraith’s star Model. The framework in star model consists of a series of design policies that are controllable by management and can influence employee behavior. The policies are the tools with which management must become skilled in order to shape the decisions and behaviors of their organizations effectively. In the Star Model design policies fall into five categories: 1. The first is strategy , which determines direction. 2. The second is structure, which determines the location of decision-making power. 3. The third is processes, which have to do with the flow of information; they are the means of responding to information technologies. 4. The fourth is rewards and reward systems, which influence the motivation of people to perform and address organizational goals. 5. The fifth category of the model is made up of policies relating to people, who influence and frequently define the employees’ mind-sets and skills. Slide 2: What is Downsizing? Downsizing is the planned elimination of positions or jobs. There are many different name used for Downsizing just like you them on slide.

No matter what label a company gives the process; there is the task of implementing the reduction in workforce while impacting the production and morale of the remaining employees. Slide 3:
