What type of presentation do you have in mind, Lester?

Respond to the following scenario with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. Be substantive and clear, and use research to reinforce your ideas.
You’re meeting with Lester in his office to discuss the details of your presentation to the board next week.
“Given all of the research that you have completed over the past several weeks,” he says, “you should have most of the information you need to make a presentation to the board. The board doesn’t want you to do any more research on all of the topics; rather, we want you to summarize the research that you have already done. ”
“Yes,” you say. “I think I have what I need.”
“Of course we want your final conclusion and recommendation on what the company should do regarding the location issue, as well,” he says.
“What type of presentation do you have in mind, Lester?”
“A PowerPoint presentation would be appropriate for this group,” he says. “I want you to include slide notes, too, in case we have to go back and look at something at a later date. Your PowerPoint presentation should contain between 7-10 slides, not including the title slide and reference slide(s). For each slide, you should have between 150–200 words in the Notes sections. Let’s take a few minutes now to go over how the slides should be organized. I’ve done similar presentations, so I can save you some time with a few pointers.”
When you get back to your office, you type out your notes about each element you discussed and the overall organization of the presentation. For this presentation, you are addressing the following elements:
Legal, social, and financial factor considerations
Economic factors: gross domestic product (GDP), inflation, interest rates, unemployment
Elasticity of demand
Economies of scale and efficiency
Strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats (SWOT)
Market structure
Risk
Costs (marginal, fixed, variable, etc.)
International expansion (Five factors that should be considered before making the decision to expand internationally)
7-10 slides + 150 words per slide in the notes

Due Thursday (7/21/22).
Watch the Week 3 videos in the University Library.
Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words:
What type of organizational structure is used by your place of employment?
Do you believe this is the best approach, and what changes, if any, you would make to the current structure?
Read the assigned pages from Chapter 7, review the PowerPoint, and watch the videos before responding. You will be able to find the name of the structure of your organization in these resources.
When responding to this topic, please use the names of the organizational structures from the Chapter 7 reading and the PowerPoint. Also, briefly explain why it fits into the selected structure.
Below are some notes from Chapter 7:
What Are the Most Common Organization Structures?
– Functional structures group together people using similar skills.
– Divisional structures group together people by products, customers, or locations.
– Matrix structures combine the functional and divisional structures.
–  Team structures make extensive use of permanent and temporary teams.
– Network structures make extensive use of strategic alliances and outsourcing.
Organization charts describe the formal reporting realtionships in organizations. The organization chart is not an organizational structure.
Organization structure is formal arrangement of people, tasks, positions, and reporting relationships
Organization chart is a diagram of positions—job titles, and reporting relationships—the hierarchy of authority, within a team or organization
Division of labor – people and groups performing different jobs, ideally ones for which they are skilled
Formal structure – the “official” structure, the way things are supposed to operate. The formal structure is not a structure in itself. One of the more common structures is a formal strubture.
Organizations also have informal structures
– Informal structure – a “shadow” organization made up of unofficial but often critical working relationships between members. The informal structure exists within a fomal structure and is not a structure by itself.
– Informal structures have good points and bad points
– Social network analysis identifies the informal structure by discovering who employees communicate with and ask for help.
– Good points include employees assisting each other, providing emotional and social support, building friendships and helping the organization adapt to change.
– Bad points include eavesdropping, gossip, rumors, breeding resistance to change and providing distractions.
Due Monday (7/25/22)
Reply to at least two of your classmates. Be constructive and professional in your responses.
Full participation requires postings on at least two days during the class week.
