Decision Making

The following post has three assignments namely;

1.Decision Making

John, President of Plastic Packaging (a small bottle manufacturing company located in western Massachusetts), has decided that downsizing is the solution to the recent financial struggles that the
company is experiencing as a result of a decrease in customer demand. Last Friday afternoon, John sent a mass e-mail to all of the employees at the facility to explain some of the disappointing
financials and his decision to use a downsizing strategy to deal with the situation. The 75 employees of Plastic Packaging start to panic. During the afternoon break, the rumor mill is on overdrive
in the breakroom. People are anxious, confused, surprised, and upset with this executive decision. Many of them wonder if there are better alternatives to the financial problems the company has
recently experienced and they know that their president could have handled the situation at hand in a much more effective manner. Please respond to the following questions in four distinct and
labeled sections: (1) Identification: (a) what are some of the main problems and related issues that you see within this scenario/case? (b) Who are the relevant stakeholders involved in the given
situation? (2) Analysis: (a) Evaluate the root causes and relevant factors (internal business environment) contributing to the main problems that you identified? (b) Explain at least two causes
using relevant management and OB concepts. (3) Alternatives and Recommendations: What could John have done differently? Generate alternatives (minimum of 2) (4) Action Plan: How should John carry
out these alternatives that you recommended?

Use appropriate headings and sub-headings to clearly present the information.
