| | The main purpose or mission of the Greenhill Community Center was to provide human service programs for learning, growth, and enrichment throughout life within an intergenerational setting. The mission seems to fill the need in the demographical setting of the location. The center is located in one of the poorest cities on the East Coast. In the textbook it states a mission as being “the reason an organization exists, and it must be the starting point for its planning.” (Worth, p.172) The mission of the center is very sound, but in the process of hiring a new director, I think the mission focus was lost. I saw a couple of incidences of “mission creep“ in the reading. (Worth, p.173) One being the focus the trustees put on not

After doing some research, the largest problem with Zappos is “a workplace where on one and everyone is the boss” (Noguchi, 2015). As their newly appointed CEO, I would stand up and take charge in order to reorganize the company.

Furthermore, we will need to assess who is best for which managerial positions. Some employees will need to be top management, middle management, and first-line management. The following chart will show which areas are needed:
