Explain the purpose and the value of conducting a diagnosis

Briefly evaluate each of the models presented in the background reading by Falletta. Do not merely describe the models, comment on their strengths and weaknesses, and specifically indicate what type of organizational problem or functional area would benefit from an analysis using each model.

Once you have discussed each of the eleven models, their strengths and weaknesses, and how they could best be applied, identify the model(s) that you would choose for use in your analysis of PetMeds. Clearly explain issue(s) would you be most concerned about and why your selection(s) would be the best choice(s).

In evaluating the models, be sure to go beyond mere description and discuss them in terms of strengths, weakness, similarities, differences, etc. Stress critical thinking! Use these insights to support and justify your assessment of the appropriateness of these models to PetMeds.

The purpose of conducting diagnosis is that that it helps understand the manner in which the organization operates. The diagnosis helps in understanding the actions of the PetMeds. Further, the diagnosis helps us to place information about the organization into the right perspective. Diagnosis helps us to understand the direction in which the organization is headed. The models help us to evaluate the information of the organizations. It also helps us get pointers about the improvements that can be made so that PetMeds becomes more effective.

The models presented in the reading are the Force field Analysis. This model helps us understand organizational problems. It also gives us an approach to tackle problems. The strength of this model is that it helps identify the driving forces and the restraining forces. The weakness of the ...
