I chose FedEx, formerly Federal Express, as the company that I will be reporting on this semester. FedEx’s presence in my text books is quite frequent as an example of entrepreneurship and I hope to learn more about the business brain of Frederick Smith, the founder, chairman, president and CEO FedEx.

As a global enterprise, FedEx embraces and reflects the diversity of the communities they serve. Their culture fosters an environment where a person 's performance matters.

FedEx is a highly centralized organization, with decision-making for the firm centralized at the Memphis headquarters. While national branches of the company have some autonomy in hiring, head office controls hiring policy. Decision-making on large capital projects is also centralized, because the network structure of the company's distribution means that such decisions have global implications. As a result, FedEx has a heavily-centralized structure where very little power is delegated to local managers. Instead local managers are charged with operating the company's strategy efficiently and effectively.
FedEx Freight attempts to put people first by: Allowing the freedom to generate and express ideas; through providing the ability to hold management accountable; and by encouraging decision-making capability (Hess & Cameron, 2006, pp.29-54). These methods are encouraged within job structures while simultaneously providing the necessary resources the employees need to accomplish their assigned tasks. This process of putting people first is effective as long as it is a top-down approach. Leadership must show that these values are real by modeling a “do as I do” attitude instead of “do as I say.”
