Here is the scenario and situation:

Assume you are an employee working in the Amazon warehouse, and you pack orders and categorize
them into small, medium, and large batches. You are considered a packer. You have experience packing all
sizes and have been with the organization for two years. You are considered one of their best employees,
you have a solid reputation for being a hard worker, and all of your orders are packed correctly. You have
also been busy; you recently completed Amazon’s management training program, and you have completed
your BABA degree at the Forbes School of Business and Technology at Ashford University.
Congratulations: You have just been promoted to manager. You will be relocated to a new plant that is twa
hours away that employs 100 employees. You will oversee a team of 10 supervisors and 90 packers and
will now oversee the entire warehouse operation. How will you work to use and apply the five functions of
management?

Now let’s apply the five functions. In your paper, include the following sections:

Planning: Examine the specific areas you will choose to manage that fall under the planning function.

For example, what might be some of the things you will plan to do and implement to build an effective team
and culture? People are the most important resource in any business, what do you plan to do to build a
positive team culture? What processes and systems do you plan to use?

Organizing: Assess if the present structure that Amazon has set up is working.
