Based on my answers, he asked below questions: Answer: My project involved analysis of the need at Chima A. Anyanwu LLP, located in LA, California. However, I noted several results that surprised me. Firstly, I thought the major problem was communication issues within the firm; however, after a deep analysis, I also discovered group differences where some workers treated others as enemies. Therefore this little teamwork and inability to perform roles and responsibilities in cohesion. The second result that surprised me was that the management never knew about the firm’s individual and group differences. They reported that their scope never included personal emotional management. The third issue that surprised me was that the management never issued regular communication to its employees regarding the organization’s operations and facilitating productivity. This is a surprise since organizational leaders should meet with their workers at least once a week for communication and feedback purposes. Gwynne (2012). I came up with one potential further project conducted on the same or different companies throughout my assessment. It was how teamwork could be used to improve productivity and innovativeness in a firm. Throughout my analysis at Chima A. Anyanwu LLP, I realized that employees were not concerned with the welfares of others, however through teamwork, especially from people with diverse knowledge and ideas, the organization can create a pool of innovative ideas that could be used to improve the firm’s innovativeness and productivity. However, without teamwork, each employee keeps their small ‘piece’ of an idea that may be limited when performing some jobs. The results of projects at Chima A. Anyanwu LLP supported my project’s scope, especially in understanding how communication and continued conflict resolution in a firm can help to increase employee productivity. For example, at the firm, we found out that most employees prefer to work in smaller groups with only the people they ‘like,’ which is a significant sign of communication problem. Additionally, we found out that the management does not solve individual conflicts, which is a sign of bad leadership. Reference Gwynne, P. (2012). Group intelligence, teamwork, and productivity. Research-Technology Management, 55(2), 7. https://search.proquest.com/openview/ffed7522068ecd1d875c781553135362/1?pq-origsite=gscholar&cbl=37905 Question 1: Two Sentence Answer for Professor’s follow-up Question Very well documented Mr. P. How will you address your concerns should you not be able to favor useful data and management approval concerning your information/data and client relationships? My project involves applying continuous communication through technological innovations at Chima A. Anyanwu LLP to improve employee productivity. My action plan will include five essential steps that will ensure my project’s goals are achieved. The first steps will be developing specified objectives, which will firstly include analysis of communication feedback within the company, how often the company’s management issues communication with their employees, and the employee’s input regarding communication issues within the firm. However, developing and installing effective communication software will help in addressing this potential issue. The second step will be creating actions to be followed; this will first include issuing an open-ended questionnaire to the employees related to the communication problem and organizing interviews with the management and some available clients regarding the communication issue. The third step will be setting a deadline or timeframe. I expect that employees will fill the questionnaire within three days. I will then interview the management within one week after the appointment and analyze the results in one week. Therefore a two-week schedule will be enough for the project completion. The fourth step of my project is resource designation; throughout the project, I will be required to hire an IT personnel to develop proper software to streamline communication in the organization. I will have to cover printing questionnaires, traveling costs, and content production costs. Therefore the estimated total cost will be $ 10,000. The final step of the action plan is monitoring the progress of the project’s completion to ensure that all activities are completed within the minimum set timeframe. I have two significant areas of concern when performing this project. Firstly, it may take before the management consents to interview me. Sometimes the manager may be pretty busy; therefore, scheduling a meeting with him may take longer than one week as expected, which will delay my project further than expected. My second concern is whether the company’s clients will be willing to provide accurate information regarding the communication issue within the firm due to the client-attorney relationship. Most clients tend to value this relation, therefore, may fail to provide adequate information for the project. Question 2: Two Sentence Answer for Professor’s follow-up Question Mr. P, it is good to hear that after going through your needs assessment that you recognize and were able to find some surprises including management unaware of “regular communication”. What and how do you intend to do to address any concerns of leadership and how leadership is viewed in your project?
