Topic: How the new vision will affect Job Performance and Job Commitment
Keeping Job Performance and Commitment High
As a managerial new hire and amidst the changes to come at Virginia Meats Inc., you will need to understand how to increase and maintain job performance and commitment during this transition and thereafter. Following upon week one’s Memo, the CEO Daniel Chinn now wants to gauge your understanding and preparedness to do this. Using the same Memo Format as in week one, answer in the follow-up questions for the CEO:
1. By FRIDAY, complete the following:
Explain your understanding of job performance and why it is important to a sustainable organization.
- In week 1, you envisioned the future direction towards which Virginia Meats Inc. needs to move. Given your knowledge of the company history and current status from the company profile, identify three areas that might challenge the employee’s performance as they move towards this goal. Be specific as to types of performance.
Explain your understanding of job commitment and why it is important to a sustainable organization.
- Given the future vision of Virginia Meats Inc., its history and current status from the company profile, identify three areas that might challenge the employee’s commitment as they move towards this goal. Be specific as to types of commitment.
Discuss how your role as manager relates to job performance and commitment. How will this role be challenged in the future workplace? Give three examples.
You must use course material to support your responses and APA in-text citations with a reference list.
2. THROUGHOUT the week, complete the following:
- Respond to your classmates three or more days throughout the week. Remember you are trying to develop the best answers to the questions as possible. Your classmates are doing the same so read the posts carefully looking for the best ideas being presented. The goal is that by the end of the week the class will come to some consensus as to the best answers giving you the chance to submit the best ideas in the final post.
- You must use course material to support your responses but you do not need to use APA in the brainstorming discussion with the exception of Friday’s initial first impression post.
- Participation is worth 2.5 points each week (20% of the final grade). Participation must be reflected in the final post so grades will be affected by the content portion of the post if participation is not shown. Therefore, it is important to get in the class often and with the idea of improving your initial post with the discussion so that the final grade will be the best you can deliver.
3. FINAL POST, complete the following:
- Attach your final post in the classroom by Monday at 11:59 p.m. ET.
- The final post must reflect the brainstorming activities and should be different than your Friday initial post.
- The final post must include a variety of sources from the class material as well as the use of scenario or case study facts where appropriate.
- It must USE APA in-text citations and reference list.
Brainstorming is a technique that seeks to collect a myriad of ideas about a problem in an effort to find a unique and often innovative way of handling the solution. It can also be a way of collecting information about a situation or produce feedback about a particular topic. Brainstorming works very simply with only three rules: No idea is too far fetched, all ideas are to be accepted by the group for consideration, and the ideas must focus on the topic presented for discussion not whether the idea will work or not. Obviously, many ideas will be discounted later on when constraints like budget or implementation impossibilities may block its consideration for successful implementation. However, for the purpose of this discussion focus only on suggesting ideas from the class material and research which will answer the topic under discussion.
