Help-Hyatt Organization Structure

A common approach for assessing an organization’s structure is examining organic and mechanistic characteristics. This assessment tool has been used by researchers and others who study organizational behavior. (Dust, Resick, & Mawritz, 2014). Thinking about your current organization or an organization familiar to you, assess its current structure based on the mechanistic and organic approach. Create an organizational diagram that accurately depicts the current organizational structure (using PowerPoint or another drawing tool). On a scale of 1 to 10, rate your perception of the following characteristics:

  • Mechanistic vs. Organic
  • Task Role: Rigid or Flexible
  • Communication: Vertical or Multidirectional
  • Decision Making: Centralized or Decentralized
  • Sensitivity to Environment: Closed or Open

After completing your analysis, prepare a brief summary analyzing your results and determine whether you were surprised by your responses. Support your response with examples. Then, identify which aspects of your organization’s structure you would change. Create an updated organizational chart that accurately depicts the new organizational structure and explain why and how this new design reflects an improvement of the organization’s ability to meet its goals. End your paper by explaining how management might assess whether the proposed new organizational structure is working as intended after 6-12 months. What key performance indicators would you measure and why?

Support your assignment with at least three scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.

Length: 4-5 pages, not including title and reference pages

Assignment 2: Marketing Plan

Description / paper instructions

Please complete this without the e-book. I do not have access to it. The demographic info can be found elsewhere, like online etc. I apologize for this inconvenience.


Create a Marketing Plan & Sales Strategy in

(MS Word or equivalent)


The Company is a non- alcholic beverage company and for the first six (6) months your company is in business you will start marketing and selling in your own community, a radius of twenty-five (25) miles from where you live


Write the three to five (3-5) page Marketing Plan & Sales Strategy section of your business plan, in which you:


  1. Define your companyвЂTMs target market.


Analyze the types of consumers who will be drinking your beverage in demographic terms (i.e., age, education level, income, gender, ethnic group, etc.). Support your analysis with actual data on the size of the demographic groups in your local community (nearby zip codes). (Alabama 35816, 35749 or surrounding areas)


Outline the demographic information for your company specified on the worksheet in the course text (p. 107 | Demographic Description). Click here for help accessing a specific page number in your eBook.


Hints: At American Fact Finder (, you will find demographic information on potential consumers in your area. If you are selling through other businesses (such as grocery stores), indicate the number of those businesses in your local area. You will find information about such businesses in your local area at County Business Patterns ( Check Chapter 2 of Successful Business Plan for more research sources.



  1. Assess your companyвЂTMs market competition.


Use the factors listed in the course text graphic (p. 123 | Assess the Competition) to assess your companyвЂTMs market competition.

Defend your strategy to successfully compete against market leaders in your segment.

Hints: For example, in the soft drink market, it is intimidating to try to compete against Coke and Pepsi. Newcomers in mature markets typically must pursue niche markets or even create new market categories, as Red Bull did with energy drinks.

Defend your plan to differentiate yourself from the competition using the information detailed on the worksheet in the text (p. 131 | Market Share Distribution).

Hints: Every business faces competition and the non-alcoholic beverage market is an especially crowded market.



  1. Clarify your companyвЂTMs message using the information provided on the worksheet in the text (p. 160 | The Five FвЂTMs).


Hints: Before you choose your marketing vehicles, you must determine the message you want to convey through those vehicles.


  1. Identify the marketing vehicles you plan to use to build your companyвЂTMs brand. Justify the key reasons why they will be effective. Provide examples of other non-alcoholic beverage companies that use these tactics effectively.


Hints: If you plan to use online marketing tactics, refer to the worksheet in the text (p.171 | Online Marketing Tactics) to aid your response. Remember that even if youвЂTMre selling through grocery stores you need to build your brand and social media is a major part of that in regard to beverages. Some of the marketing tactics that beverage companies use include: sampling in grocery stores, building a following on social media, sponsoring events, exhibiting at trade shows attended by retailers, and so on. You will use a combination of these tactics. For example, if you decide to give out samples in grocery stores, promote your sampling on your social media networks and those of the grocery store.

Hints: If you are planning to distribute through resellers, describe how you plan to reach them, for example, through industry trade shows or by establishing your own sales force. For information on trade shows, visit the Trade Show News Network ( You can exhibit or network at these shows.
