come up with an organizational plan to create a smooth merger of two companies..
You are the senior operations manager for a mid-sized insurance company. One of your smaller competitors (also an insurance company) has been hit hard due to many claims from a recent major storm. The company has also made some bad investments and is in financial trouble. Your boss has called you in to tell you that they plan on buying out this firm and integrating their business, and he needs you to develop the internal executive proposal that outlines a plan for integrating the smaller company into your current company’s current organizational model. Your job is to come up with an organizational plan to create a smooth merger of the two companies. From start to finish, develop a proposal ‘for internal use only’ that explains how the company should proceed.
Your boss tells you that the main goal of your proposal is to minimize behavioral resistance to change at both companies, to include clients, leadership, and subordinates. Include recommendations, such as activities, communications, and corporate meetings/events, in each related area of organizational behavior that will help with this merger. Be sure to cite at least three peer-reviewed theories, scholarly articles written in the organizational behavior field within the last three to five years to support your proposed ideas.
Your paper should consist of a minimum of two pages (not including cover page).
Please be sure to cite all references in proper APA format.
Be sure to cover each of the following content areas:
Rational Choice Paradigm
Channels Of Communication
Organizational Culture And Power
