Assignment 2: Planning Vertical Integration

I need the portion for Team Member B completed.  I also need a 500 word paper written in APA format to accompany this assignment.  I have attached Both Team Member A and a Portion of the Project Submission Form to this assignment.

 

In this module, your team will identify problems related to the vertical integration process in your

selected organization. Next, your team will propose solutions to solve the identified problems. Further, your team will create a plan for implementing and evaluating the effectiveness of the solutions identified. The findings will be presented as a mini business plan, four to five pages long, which can be integrated into the outline of your business plan for the course project. Before you begin, be sure to select a new team leader for this week.

By Tuesday, March 25, 2014, complete the first column, Problem/Opportunity Identified, in the Project Submission form. Provide details of the problem or opportunity identified and your rationale for considering these in the first section of your mini business plan. You can identify these problems or opportunities by analyzing your selected organization’s:

  1. Product placement and distribution strategies
  2. Forecasting strategies
  3. Production management

By Wednesday, March 26, 2014, brainstorm for solutions to the problems you identified. Use the Discussion Area to exchange ideas with your team. Based on this discussion, complete the second column, Solution Identified, for each problem or opportunity in the Project Submission form. Provide details of each solution with your rationale in the second section of your mini business plan. Be sure to include references to case studies, personal experiences, or any other information on which you might have based your solutions.

By Thursday, March 27, 2014, complete the third column, Resource Needs or Constraints, related to the problem(s)/OFIs that you identified. In the corresponding section of your mini business plan, outline steps for implementing your solutions, clearly identifying the timelines and responsibilities for each task. The level of detail included here should be sufficient to allow smooth implementation of your solution.

By Friday, March 28, 2014, complete the fourth column, Metrics of Success, for the solutions that you identified. In the corresponding section of your mini business plan, create an appropriate matrix against which you can measure the success of each solution. Respond to at least two other classmate’s response before the end of the module.
