Select an organization with whom you are familiar such as your CO-OP station, a family business, or even Loudoun County Schools. OR- research a company using the Internet. Identify the type of organization management structure of that business. If it is vertical, list the names and positions of top management, middle management, and supervisory level management. Next to each position, list the responsibilities or job tasks for that position.
Students divide into four groups (no more than 5 per group). Using the problem solving process, determine a solution for the following questions. Prepare a PPT presentation. Group A: How can a country deal with mass unemployment? Group B: What can be done about soaring high school drop-out rates? Group C: How can a society address the growth of the homeless population? Group D: How can a government regain the trust of its people?
