Prompt: Complete a Strategic and Operational Analysis of your Organization – Part III: Unlike products stored in warehouses for future consumption, a service is an intangible personal experience that cannot be transferred from one person to
another. Instead, a service is produced and consumed simultaneously (Bordoloi, p. 301). Whenever demand for a service falls short of the capacity to serve, the results are idle servers and facilities. Further, the variability in service demand is quite pronounced, and, in fact, our culture and habits contribute to these fluctuations (Bordoloi, p. 301). There are three strategies for capacity management: (1) level capacity (marketing-oriented strategies such as price incentives), which helps to smooth customer demand, (2) chase demand (operations-oriented strategies such as
work shift scheduling) which matches changing levels of customer demand and (3) yield management which uses sophisticated real-time information systems to maximize revenue (Bordoloi, p. 301). Using Chapter 11 (pp. 301-320) as a guide and its associated examples, develop a strategy and system/process for managing capacity
and demand within your organization. Before you begin, review this article by The
Systems Thinker https://thesystemsthinker.com/systems-thinking-what-why-whenwhere-and-how/ to help you think about the purpose and benefit of designing and
implementing systems within your Strategic and Operational plan.
The capacity planning decision involves a trade-off between the cost of providing a
service and the cost or inconvenience of customer waiting (Bordoloi, p. 301).
Capacity planning is a challenge for service firms because of the open system nature
of service operations and, thus, the inability to create a steady flow of activity to use
capacity fully (Bordoloi, p. 301). The capacity decision is complicated further
because customers are participants in the service process, and the level of congestion
impacts the quality of the service experience. Capacity decisions in services have
strategic importance based on the time horizon in question. Failure to plan for short term capacity needs, such as staffing for the lunch hour, can generate customers for the competition (Bordoloi, p. 301). On the other hand, forecasting is the process of making predictions on past/present data and through trend analysis. When used together, the organization can better predict the demand and plan accordingly. Using
Chapters 13 and 14 (pp. 357-418) as a guide and example, develop a Capacity Plan and a Forecasting Demand for Services in your organization. You may want to consider researching tools and techniques outside of the textbook for this assignment.
In MBA-667, we did some forecasting from a financial perspective, but what does this look like from all areas of your organization?
Include your perspective of operations management in the modern economy and how
a Christian worldview affects organizational decision-making. How might a Christian worldview be used to assist in the strategic and operational analysis discussed in this paper?
o Requirements: This is the continuation of the development of a Strategic and Operational Analysis for your organization. The Strategic Analysis is a piece of your final deliverable which is to complete a Strategic and Operational Analysis that identifies your organization’s competitive environment, how your organization will be organized to operate (processes, metrics, quality, capacity) within this environment
and how you will allocate resources to meet the demands of this environment. This assignment is a continuation of the Strategic and Operational Analysis that you created in Unit 2 and continued in Unit 4. This assignment will include an additional 4-6 pages of content (required Cover Page, Executive Summary, and APA References Section not included in this page count), which includes the tools listed above and
your explanation of what these tools mean for your organization.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
