Assessment 1 organisational change
Identify change requirements/opportunities
Boeing has to cut 300 or so employees, which means that 300 people will lose their jobs and have to find a new one. This will be very upsetting news for all the workers and the company may lose some credit because of this. These employees will have to accept that they’re going to lose their jobs, and must find another job. This is hard because the number of vacancies is already very low.
Customers may feel that the quality has dropped as the manufacturing is now using less people. The organisation must ensure to the customers that the products are still the same standard of quality and the products still have the same designs and procedures.
Boeing’s objectives are specific as the areas to be considered are identifiable. They can be easily measured using organisational statistics and reports. Definitely achievable for a company with great success. Can be done, making it realistic. Most objectives are annual meaning that they are time efficient.
Boeing must improve its public relations with the market and thus marketing can be used to communicate with the market and built a stronger relationship. There are many marketing opportunities for Boeing. The opportunities will vary from effectiveness, price and area of distribution. The most effective will be in the mass media advertising such as television, internet, radio.
There is mass media advertising such as:
Review current Boeing’s Policies & Procedures
Industrial Relations Act – NSW Industrial Relations (NSW IR) works with employers and employees to achieve fair, equitable and productive workplaces. NSW IR supports the NSW Government as a participant in the national workplace relations system, by monitoring and advising on workplace relations developments and initiatives. This also explains the fair employment conditions that employers need to meet. Employees have the right to fair treatment such as a wage that is above the minimum wage. They must also be given a safe workplace that complies with OHS laws. And equal opportunities to develop skills and promotions.
Environmental act – Dust is the major pollutant that is produced by the mining operations. Dust pollutants such as NOX, SO2 and other volatile organic compounds are emitted into the air and potentially harm the environment. Though the levels do not exceed the legal levels, the pollutants can still cause harm to the environment and people in the area over a long period of time.
WHS act – this act is to ensure that business follow WHS policies and procedures and understand their responsibilities to keep the workplace safe from risks and hazards. This is too keep all people such as workers, visitors, customers and suppliers safe in the workplace.......
Develop Boeing’s SWOT and PESTLE analysis
Performance gaps are the differences between expected and current performances. These performance gaps are important to identify because they identify the areas where the business or organisation needs to improve. It can also be used to measure the progress of a business in reaching their goals.
There will be a comparison between the real performance and results and the expected performance and results which can then identify the performance gap of this project.
I will also have to identify the causes of these gaps and the way to prevent them for future projects.

Cost Benefit Analysis
I will weigh the pros and cons to analyse the cost benefit of options. I want to choose the option that provides the greatest benefits in cost of low disadvantages.
There are many political risks that must be considered. The first would be off shore manufacturing risks. If there any policies and procedures that would prevent the off shore manufacturing from being legal or effective, the organisation must know these before the organisational change. Policies and procedures are different in off shore countries and therefore, the organisation should be very careful of the different policies.
Economical risks are also very high. Interest rates and exchange rates will be fluctuating a lot. These fluctuations can cause significant changes to the company profits.
Social risks are very significant as well. As stated before, the use of off shore manufacturing can cause ethical issues with the customers. Off shore manufacturing is often related to child labour, cheap labour and poor quality. Customers may not be happy with the new offshore manufacturing and the customers may not feel that they would rather these thongs over other things that are manufactured in china anymore because the quality advantage is taken out.
