This Minor 1 should be written as the first-part of a three-part report that will come together in Unit 3 as your Major 2 which is an internal organizational design audit of your organization. You should narrow your unit of analysis to a substantial team, business unit, firm or larger enterprise. This could be a branch of government, or a department of college, or a large mega church (cf. Burton et al., 2011, pp. 9-10). This course will use the generic term “organization” to refer to any of these.
Your Minor 1 should cover this ground in report format (1.5 line spacing, ample margins, with a title page and sections to follow, linked with headers to the “navigation pane” in MS Word).
Background: Project intent, project sponsor (manager), a short organization description, and the role you will assume to evaluate its organization design.
