[INSERT TITLE HERE] 2 PART I: Short Response Questions Directions: Please provide responses to the questions below. If necessary, please use examples or information from the textbook; however, please be sure to not copy any information directly from the text, the Module 3 Lecture Notes, or the Internet. Please use proper APA citations for any resources that you use. For concise APA formatting guidelines, please visit the Academic Resource Center (ARC). Your responses should be at least 100 words in length for each question. 1. What is departmentalization and what are its most common forms? In this response, please incorporate one definition from the textbook and ensure that you use appropriate APA citation and include the textbook in your Reference section. 2. In this module, you learned about the basic forms of organization design including the U- form, H-form, M-form, and the Matrix design. Describe the basic forms of organization design. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? 3. Read the Experiential Exercise on pages 178 and 179 in your textbook. Select one of these scenarios: Scenario 1: o You will design and sell the products yourself, as well as oversee production. o You will start with a workforce of five people. Scenario 2: o You intend to devote all of your time to sales to increase revenues, leaving all other functions to other individuals. o You will start with a workforce of nine people. Then perform the following: Why did you choose the scenario with five people or the scenario with nine people? Explain the organizational design you will use. Explain in your own words how your organizational design will help the company function and work. ( Note: You must use one of the designs you learned about in the chapter: H-form, M-form, U-form, or matrix. Explain why you chose that form for your company. In addition to your written explanation you may draw your organizational design, as well.) 4. Based upon your response to question #3, please answer the following questions: What are your thoughts about starting out too large to maintain stability, as opposed to starting small and then growing? What basic factors did you consider when choosing a design? Now assume that five years have passed and that your business has been a big success. You have a large factory that makes your chocolates and ships them to 15 states. You employ almost 500 people. Create an organization design that you think best fits this organization. How many departments do you think you will need? PART II: LIRN Library Exercise
