Two Options for Your Required Replies to Classmates 75-150 WORD RANGE

Option 1 is that you find a consultant selection made by a classmate to address a specific issue, as identified by the issue number and description, with which you disagree. You must state why you believe there is a better consultant to address a particular issue that differs from your classmate’s response. You must state the major idea associated with your choice and why that idea applies to the issue more appropriately. Your reply must be supported with course materials, in-text citations, and references.

Option 2 occurs if you agree with all of a particular classmate’s consultant selections. In that case, you must address one of the six (6) listed issues that your classmates did not answer. You will explain which consultant you think could best address that issue, the school of thought that individual represents, and explain how the major contribution or idea of that individual applies to the specific issue you selected. Your reply must be supported with course materials, in-text citations, and references.

Note: You may use either Option 1 or Option 2 for each different classmate to whom you respond.

Putting It Together: History of Management

BELOW IS WHAT OUR DISCUSSION WAS ABOUT:

Case Discussion SMITHFIELD’S CUSTOM FURNITURE:

 It is 1901. Alicia Smithfield, daughter of the founder of Smithfield Custom Furniture, just inherited the company. She is the only surviving heir to the furniture empire her father built. Headquartered in upstate New York, the company has grown significantly over the past 60 years. Began in a shed built next to his log cabin, Jonas Smithfield’s quality furniture developed a huge following among New York City’s wealthiest residents. After being educated in the best business schools in Europe and America, Alicia has run the business side-by-side with her father for the past 15 years. During a time when there were many issues confronting the business, a tree being felled took an unexpected route and brought Jonas’ life to a surprising end. The company had just moved to a facility large enough to house its workers: 10 carpenters; 5 furniture designers; 5 wood finishers (varnish and dye experts); 10 machine operators to assist with the various equipment needed to cut the wood into various designs, polish and sand the wood; 5 mechanics to keep the vehicles (5 trucks) and boats (7) that transported wood from upstate New York and Canada to the work area in good repair; 15 lumberjacks who cut wood in nearby areas and moved it downriver by boat or over the rugged highway by truck; and 5 office personnel who assisted with filing, invoicing, drafting and responding to correspondence, handling customer inquiries, and performing other necessary office functions. More than half of these employees were hired in the past 5 years.

THIS WAS REQUIRED FOR OUR POST: You are to answer for Alicia Smithfield any four (4) of the above mentioned six (6) issues. Specifically, she has asked you to recommend a consultant to solve any four of the six issues confronting her. You have been requested to explain to Alicia why you selected the four consultants you choose to solve each of the four issues you selected. Each consultant will solve one of the four issues you identified that particular consultant to address. You should explain the major contribution/idea of the consultant selected and how that contribution/idea applies to the specific issue you have recommended that person solve. You should identify the school of thought that each consultant represents. Note: You may not use any of the individuals in the readings to solve more than one of the four (4) issues. In the event a person you select is deceased, do not let that inconvenience stand in your way. You may still use that individual to solve a specific issue. For research associated with this discussion, you must use course materials only. You must provide APA formatted in-text citations and references for each of the four (4) issues you select.
