1 to 3 OB(“Organizational Behavior A Practical, Problem-Solving Approach”, Third Edition (Angelo Kinicki) ) problems or opportunities that must be addressed to achieve your goal
evidence that your recommendation will enable LLL and Christine Day to address the OB problems or opportunities and achieve your business goal.
NO OUTSIDE RESOURCES ALLOWED to be used, only can use “OB(Organizational Behavior A Practical, Problem-Solving Approach)” and, “Leadership, Culture, and Transition at lululemon” articles be the resources to write business report.
Tips to Consider

First, use the Organizing Framework to evaluate the situation. Then apply the 3-step method to decide which major business objective is most urgent for LLL and Christine Day to address. It may be helpful to identify the stakeholders, how important they are, how they perceive the problem or goal, and what factors might be influencing them.

Finally, use Balanced Scorecard frameworks to flesh out your recommendation and implementation plan.

Don’t forget to consider human factors at play, such as motivation, experience, self-interest, etc. Although we haven’t completed the Power & Politics Module yet, consider how power and politics might affect the viability of your recommendation.

Report Structure

Business writing is goal oriented and concise. In this assignment, your goal is to limit the information in the main body to what is essential for Christine to make a decision on your recommendation. Put relevant details, such as the complete analyses, detailed plans, etc., in the appendix, in case “Christine” wants more information.

With this in mind, you might consider following the outline below to structure your report. If you have experience writing business reports, no need to follow this structure as long as your content covers similar components.
