Question 2
Why do you want to participate in the Fall 2017 Field Study?
Your answer
Question 3 - Below is a hypothetical scenario. In one sentence, summarize what you believe to be the key problem contained within the scenario.
The operations department of the multinational online retailer Package Corp is planning to implement a new order management system to improve delivery lead times and reduce the number of inaccurate orders. This is expected because the new system will help Package Corp employees more quickly and accurately research order details when a customer calls with an inquiry. Package Corp employees are concerned about not knowing how to use the new system once it is implemented, and there are also rumors that it will automate certain job functions and lead to headcount reduction. At the same time, Package Corp management believes that the new order management system is intuitive and easy to use, so it will likely not require training. They also point out that in most companies, moving to a new order management system is not a significant change for employees. Some members of Package Corp management are encouraged by this news and suggest that the implementation team forgo training to generate additional cost savings. Other members of the management team are less convinced, and they point out that a successful transition to the new system is critical for maintaining customer satisfaction.
