Write 2 paragraphs of atlest 200 to 300 words.
Ten years ago, you started working as a clerk for DMD Medical Supplies.
Six months ago, Liz Jakowski, the human resources director, promoted
you to office manager. You manage two employees: Jack Snyder and
Ruth Disselkoen. Your office provides secretarial support for the four
members of the executive team. Two years ago, Liz had assigned Jack to
support Ralph Alane and Jessica Hilo. Ruth was assigned to Samuel
Daley and Frank Daley. The work flow was equally balanced.
You?ve noticed that in the last three months Ruth has cut her breaks
short to complete her work, complains of being tired, and at least twice
a month requires overtime hours costing the company an additional
$200 a month. In the last three weeks, Frank Daley has complained to
you a few times about the poor quality of Ruth?s work.
On the other hand, over the last three months, Jack frequently seems to
have little to do. He has begun coming in late a
couple times a week and taking more than the allotted break times.
What work he does have, however, is always professionally completed.
Clearly, you must investigate to determine what is causing this change
and how to improve the situation. Since nothing has changed in the personal
lives of either Jack or Ruth, you conclude you must focus on the
in-office work situation. You learn the following facts:
? Samuel and Frank Daley share a part-time administrative assistant
who works only 15 hours a week.
? Ralph Alane and Jessica Hilo share a full-time administrative
? Jessica Hilo has been on medical leave for the last four months,
and Liz Jakowski isn?t sure whether Jessica will be able to return
? Jessica?s duties have been temporarily reassigned to Ralph and Frank.
Although you don?t have the authority to change who Jack and Ruth are
assigned to work for, you clearly need to change the work the two do so
that both Jack and Ruth work regularly without requiring overtime.
The background explains the primary cause of the workflow problem
and the negative effects resulting from it. Your task is to make
up a realistic plan which solves the uneven productivity between
Jack and Ruth. Use prewriting tools like brainstorming, cluster or
webbing diagrams, and freewriting to outline the cause-effect situation
and to develop a specific solution that best solves the problem.
Also ask yourself the following questions to expand your prewriting.
? How long has this situation been going on?
? Why did the problems begin when they did?
? Am I able to solve the problem at its root cause or am I only
able to manage the impact of the problem?
? Is this a temporary or permanent problem?
? How has the company been affected?
? How have the employees been affected?
? What?s in my power to change? What must stay the same?
? What are two or three ways to improve the efficiency of my
? How much work, time, and money would be required to implement
? Does each solution stop all the negative effects?
? Are there any benefits to the change beyond stopping what is occuring?
? How exactly would each change affect Jack, Ruth, and the executive
? What would I have to do to make sure each change goes
through as planned and to monitor the situation once the solution
is in place?
