Organizational Setting

In at least 2 pages, describe the mission of your organization (e.g., what product or service is
provided, to what intended markets, and how the product or service is distinct from those offered by competitors), who your customers are (internal and external), what value you add to the organization (how you help the organization achieve its mission), and what role Christianity
currently plays in this organization. Please review the Integrated Learning Project

For the Integrative Learning Project Assignment, you will research a particular, authentic
company/industry or a fabricated company/industry. (No one in this course should write
anything regarding their government or organizational relationship that could create doubt about crossing lines that would disclose confidential information of any kind. It would be better to create a fictional situation. It is up to you to use your informed judgment.) The ILP must be
written in current APA format and must include the following major elements:
 Title Page
 Table of Contents
 Abstract
 Introduction
-It should be no more than ½ page in length.
-Reference the APA Publication Manual, 7th edition, section 3.4 for suggested components of an introduction and section 2.27 for formatting.

 Organizational Setting
-In at least 2 pages:
 Describe the mission of your organization (e.g., what product or service is provided, to what intended markets, and how the product or service is distinct from those offered by competitors)
 Define your customers are (internal and external)
 Identify what value you add to the organization (how you help the organization achieve its mission)
 Highlight the role Christianity currently plays in this organization (if it is a secular organization, what Christian values are built into the organization?).
-The student must clearly state if the company/industry is fabricated (not statement
required for authentic company/industry.

 Integration of Chapter Concepts to the Organizational Setting
-Select 8 different key concepts from the textbook that seem to be most applicable to your organizational setting. Some examples of key concepts include supply chain management, Six Sigma, innovation, etc. Provide an in-depth discussion of each of your chosen key concepts and its application to your organizational setting.
 For each concept, provide a comprehensive description, what benefit it may offer to your organization, and what needs to be done in order to successfully implement this topic into your organization.
 For each concept, integrate appropriate biblical references. Explain how these concepts magnify God’s plan for you.


Sample Solution

During this project I came up against a fair amount of opposition from long-term employees who were resistant to the changes that were being implemented, as this was the first overhaul of the organisations procedures in many years. I utilised “Social Approaches to Influencing” Bacon T R, (2010) whereby I was able to socialise and appeal to the relationship, depending on the employee, so that they would see me as a ‘one of them’ and then I moved it forward by consulting with them, so that they could feel part of the reforms and understand the reason for the project, and the benefits to them long-term. I was also able to use alliance building by getting groups of persons together to help influence wayward individuals.


One of my greatest challenges on this project was involving the Directors in the project. They had instructed myself to take full ownership, however sections of the assessment required direct involvement from them, and they were unwilling at times to participate. I had to persuade them to make the required inputs. I utilised the “Psychology of Persuasion” DeMers J, (2016) by being confident, knowing my subject matter and “subtly imply[ing] that you’re already going to get what you want” Demers J (2016), then introducing the logical argument about their required involvement to attain the standard. I then showed them the benefits of their involvement, not just for the criteria, but for staff moral and participation, making sure I chose my words careful to emphasis the importance of their involvement, and then using flattery, by appealing to their vanity over their knowledge of the industry and how committed to their employees they were. Finally, I had to have patience, but ensuring at all times that I persistently reminded them, and eventually I managed to persuade them to take a great involvement in the project.

Negotiating with others

One of the core criteria was the additional Security Screening of all personnel within the organisation. This included sub-contracted staff, and I was required to negotiate with our main sub-contractors to obtain confirmation that standards had been adhered to without physically seeing documentation, so as to respect their need to satisfy data protection. I prepared my argument with regards the reason for the additional checks, what the criteria we needed to achieve, and, having spoken with BSI, what I would be able to accept to both please them and satisfy the assessment. I chose to ‘negotiate jointly’ so as not to be too aggressive but still assertive, establishing mutual trust, and then I was able to offer concessions on the issue, appreciate their concerns that could potentially impact on their compliance, and I was also able to demonstrate the advantages to their own organisations. We agreed on a satisfactory outcome and the time scale required, and this was then summarised in writing to all parties.
