An American Internet Technology company has merged with a Canadian Social Media company. Because of this merger, performance is not as optimum as the executives would have hoped; morale is low, and stress is up. The new company has decided to hire you as an Organizational Development consultant. They have tasked you with finding out the issues and what they should do next to get back on track.
Now that you have secured your role as an Organizational Development consultant, you are now tasked with determining a diagnostic and intervention process. You will need to demonstrate to management how using the chosen diagnostic process will be used in the new company to help increase the efficiency of the organization.
The following questions should be included in your business, professional report:
- Describe how you select a diagnostic process to use for this organizational development cultural change.
- Given the current situation, what are some of the process interventions you recommend for the newly merged company to ensure effective work teams?
- How would you collect the data needed for the organizational development program?
- Discuss some organizational development strategies that, as the consultant, you would use to create the necessary change.
Requirements: 3-4 pages not including cover and reference page
Given the current situation in the new company, the recommended intervention would be to change some of the processes. This method is used in the merged company to ensure employees from both companies jointly optimize the technical and social subsystems and work together to meet the minimal social and organizational requirements required for the organization (Pfeil, Chatlani, LaViola Jr, & Wisniewski, 2021). For such change, I would recommend using a dynamic system development method that incorporates face-to-face user involvement that enhances development cycles that result in prototypical evolutionary solutions. The Canadian and American workers should come together to create a development team, while the merged company must meet user requirements needed at the organizational level.
