  1. From this information, construct an organizational chart.
    • You may use a template from any source you wish. Templates are available in Microsoft Word and a variety of online sources.
    • You may use any type of organizational structure (hierarchical, flat, project management, etc.)  What organizational structure did you choose and why?
    • You may eliminate or change the job titles but do not reduce the number of people working for the company.
  2. After developing your organizational chart, define the departments and the relationships that you believe could most likely be downsized (restructured) in the event that growth slows or stops.
    • Explain your proposed restructuring and your rationale for the restructuring strategy you’ve chosen.
  3. What would be the advantages/disadvantages if the company’s production operations were subcontracted? What if production operations were transferred to an offshore location such as China?
