The paper "Google’ s Organizational Structure & Organizational Culture" is a perfect example of a business assignment. Read through the case study Create one multiple cause diagram to identify the sources/factors which can lead to Google’ s innovation. The students should submit hand-drawn diagrams as opposed to computer-generated ones. There should be no Photocopies of diagrams. You should also reflect on your diagram in more than 200 words. (15% marks) The multiple case diagram shows the factors/sources which can lead to Google’ s innovation: the creation of high-performance culture. Before starting the drawing, high-performance culture is first identified.
Then the primary causes of such results are identified and the causes resulting in the outputs are also identified. The input includes the teamwork and high performance by the people at Google organization. The output is high performance. There are a number of factors affecting this combination. Teamwork performance is influenced by how the team members work among each themselves. Google has set up a culture that allows the members to know functions and how they can contribute to the success of the company and also help them to understand and feel that they are part of a crucial process. Effective teamwork also requires high performing individuals by different departments in Google organization.
The workers in this organization are highly motivated to work efficiently with minimum supervision as they are able to get reward directly from this efficient system that improves their lives and their careers. The people are made to know their objectives and how they fit into the system, which are the important factors for high performance by the team. Based on T205B concept file 04 section II “ Control” , and taking “ Promoting Innovation” as your goal, draw one closed-loop control model to show the inputs’ , processes, and control that can lead to achieving that goal.
Reflect on your diagram in more than 200 words (15% marks) The main purpose of closed-loop is to control automatically the process which results in the realization of high performance. The process control allows the management to study the procedure and make corrections in the process that results in the output that is in line with the expected goals (Heizer, Render & Munson, 2016). The high-performance system has been realized in Google after employing high performing individuals to work as individuals and to work as a team. The input model in Google is teamwork and high performance.
The way or the culture in which they work, the way the related to each other are the processes and the output is the expected goals. A high performing system controls the procedure through an informal and formal process that helps the team members to work in line with their objectives. With the absence of the controls, the people could lose their objectives which will lead to not achieving the objectives. The high-performance culture is controlled by setting clear goals and making people understand their roles and their importance in the organization.
The controls state clearly the reward mechanism for outstanding individuals. The management process involves a combination of the people, tasks and technology in order to achieve the objectives of an organization (Heizer, Render & Munson, 2016).
