Executive Interview & Analysis
This assignment requires you to conduct a semi-structured interview with a chosen executive and write an 8-10 page paper that summarizes your findings. Your chosen executive should have strategic decision-making responsibilities for a unit, division, department, or work team, or one who executes such duties within the organization. Ideally, your interviewee should be an executive-level manager in the organization, have been in such a leadership role for at least one year, and have P & L responsibility (or budgetary responsibility for non-profit organizations). The interview will seek to understand the executive’s approach to assessing his/her work unit’s performance (team, department, division, organization, etc.) through alignment of organization design dimensions (structure, job design, human resource systems, management style, etc.) and the operating environment. The interview will seek to uncover the executive’s priorities concerning organizational diagnosis or assessment through addressing questions such as: What are the critical drivers of his/her work unit’s performance?; How are changes in the operating environment monitored?; and What are the most significant challenges associated with maintaining alignment across organization design elements?
