Using the Argosy University online library resources and valid Internet sites, search for an organizational chart of a manufacturing, service, or technology company looking specifically for one that shows a change in the operations function. Typically, such charts can be found in published annual reports of public companies.
Based on your analysis of the chart, respond to the following:
- Review the annual reports over the past three years and see how the operations management function has changed.
- Examine the financial reports to understand the competitive and market challenges the organization is facing and then analyze the importance of operations in the organization.
- Explore how the organizational function has evolved to keep pace with the changing competitive and business landscape.
