Scenario

Imagine you are a new manager at the SNHU Pet Supply Company. The company has grown from a small, local pet-supply company into a large organization with locations in Manchester, New Hampshire and Denver, Colorado. It also employs remote staff. The manager you are replacing was with the team for two years and left on negative terms, which exacerbated an already concerning team culture.

You have been asked to present a management plan that addresses identified areas of concern, rebuilds the teamÂ’s culture, and aligns organizational practices to leadership.

Leadership has provided you with a management brief that outlines the key pieces of information you will need in order to make informed recommendations.

Directions

Use course resources and the information provided in the Project One Management Brief (located in the Supporting Materials section) to develop recommendations that will meet the needs of your new team and align with your organizationÂ’s mission, vision, culture statement, and goals.

Use the Presentation Template to create presentation slides that highlight key pieces of information, and use the Speaker Notes Template to outline what you would say when presenting your recommendations in a future meeting with leadership. Both templates are located in the What to Submit section.

Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:

Team Management
Leadership and Management: Describe leadership and management practices that you feel would be best suited to manage the team.
