Hello Brittany,
I greatly enjoyed reading your discussion board post, and I thought that you did an
outstanding job in covering each specific aspect of the questions that were asked. Your
discussion board post was very well articulated, and you made some excellent points in regard to
how important sharing information, stakeholder expectations and goals, employee development,
being able to accurately evaluate effectiveness, and outsourcing can be to an organization.
In your analysis of why the sharing of information can be such a beneficial tool for an
organization, I thought that you did an excellent job of presenting detailed examples of how this
type of business process can effectively improve an organization and how they operate. More
specifically, your take on how companies can even utilize the sharing of information between
their competitors to create a mutually beneficial relationship was very intriguing. As research
conducted by Barua, Ravindran, and Whinston states, “Internal information sharing is also
important for reducing product development cycle times and customer service response times,
and improving overall productivity” (2007).
Furthermore, I thought that you did an excellent job in presenting your thoughts on the
differences between what expectations a stakeholder might have depending if they were involved
in a nonprofit organization or a for profit business. The way that you put forth specific
differences between these two types of organizations and how this would effect the goals that a
stakeholder may have in mind was very well founded. Also, I agree with your statement that
stakeholders involved in a nonprofit organization may have more at stake. For these business
professionals meeting financial goals and keeping a sharp focus on the bottom line are not the
only goals at the forefront of these stakeholders minds, as making a difference in their chosen
industry and ensuring ethical and morally sound behavior are also extremely important.

Employee development is a fundamental aspect of a successful organization, and the
points that you touched on brought to light the efficiency that good employee development can
provide. Your example of how an organization’s attempt to keep their employees ready to adapt
to change and up to date with any advancements in the industry is paramount to the successful
future of a company. Lastly, outsourcing certain activities can provide an organization with a
way to reduce the costs of daily business processes while keeping efficiency and the quality of
work high. Overall, I thought that you did an outstanding job articulating these points in your
discussion board and I enjoyed reading your work.
