Question description

Imagine that you are the owner of a small manufacturing company. Your company manufactures a commodity, widgets. Your widget is a clone of a nationally known widget. Your company’s widget, WooWoo, is less expensive and more readily available than the nationally known brand. Presently, the sales are high; however, there are many defects, which increase your costs and delays delivery. Your company has fifty (50) employees in the following departments: sales, assembly, technology, and administration.

  2. Determine which motivational theory you would use to support your motivational plan.
  3. Propose three (3) ways to motivate the minimum wage service worker. Support your suggestions with a motivation theory.
  4. Consider how communication, attitudes, behaviors, and culture affect team performance. Outline a guide that you would use to lead a work team (e.g., cross-functional, virtual, problem-solving, etc.).
  5. Reflect on your individual experience working with your team. Ensure that you include the following: 
    1. How and why the team leader was selected
    2. How often your team met
    3. Challenges that you experienced during this process
    4. How you would approach team projects / assignments differently in the future
    5. The most important lesson learned from this experience
  6. Use at least five (5) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.
