Week 6 Discussion
Strategies That Solve Problems
Think of problems you have experienced in your professional career or personal life. Perhaps you have worked for an organization with an exceptionally high turnover rate or that had a difficult time acquiring new clients. Maybe you have had to contend with questions about where you wanted to live, such as whether you should rent or own, live downtown or on the outskirts, be close to or far away from family, or be located in this school district or the other one. Problems can range from simple to complex, and occasionally a strategy (or lack of strategy) is to blame. By changing the strategy, the odds of addressing a problem successfully can be increased. In this Discussion, you will explore a company that experienced a problem due to their strategy (or lack thereof) and provide a recommendation for addressing the problem using a strategic approach.
To prepare for this Discussion:
Using a reputable news source, research a company that is currently experiencing an external problem (e.g., shipping, delivery, support, process, finding customers). Consider ways in which the company’s strategy (or lack of strategy) contributed to the problem.
By Day 3
Post your summary of a strategy to address an organizational performance issue, to include the following:
Briefly describe the company you located and its external problem. Be sure to include a citation to reference your findings.
Propose a strategy you would recommend to the company so its leadership could address the external problem.
Refer to the Week 6 Discussion Rubric for specific grading elements and criteria. Your Instructor will use this grading rubric to assess your work.

By Day 5
Respond to two or more of your colleagues’ posts in one or more of the following ways:
Offer an insight you gained from the external problem of the company your colleague identified. Have you ever experienced a similar problem in the workplace?
Ask a question about or provide an additional perspective regarding the strategy your colleague would recommend to the company to address the external problem.
Return to this Discussion in a few days to read the responses to your initial posting. Note what you have learned or any insights you have gained as a result of the comments your colleagues made.
