ATIENZA, WARREN E. CE 297 – TZZQ ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT 8.) Does ACME need a new leader? What traits are needed? Yes. This leader should be more consistent and goal-oriented. This leader should also be a good communicator and try to close the gap in the communication issues in the team departments. This leader should also be focused on long-term goals such as developing an effective project management system. 9.) At what stage in the business life cycle was ACME in? ACME was in its shake-out to maturity phase in the business life cycle when they decided to produce WiMAX Products. They had a good run in the past years competing with giants, but had shortcomings due to issues stated. It was evident in their final project that the management style of the CEO had taken its toll to the company’s production. Force-feeding board assemblies with half-balked designs. In the end, the production team finally managed to get their end result done, but at a cost of poor margin yield. In hopes to reverse this issue, the production team to look for a manufacturer that would give them favorable costs on their production requests. Unfortunately, this long shot plan just further delayed the production schedule.

    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.
