Report in IBC format for managerial decisions

Identify an important managerial challenge facing his or her work or other organization. Develop a plan that integrates effective financial and operational decision making to successfully meet this challenge and improve organizational performance, in a succinct report that includes an executive summary.


The key to a successful EOSP is to comply carefully with the tasking, stated here with bolding to draw attention to key elements:

Finally, using the same type of set up, we continue with another on site meeting with new hires with contracts to train them in the technology and methods we use. We see these as the best way to keep potential hires engaged while meeting the criteria and demands of an online, virtual school.

As a director of human resources, one has to not only hire the best people to do the work, but also to set up the training for the new hires. Our system of teaching is different and we have a different set of rubrics for teachers to use. Our goal is to keep the students engaged, a clear path to student success. As such, we have to carefully consider not only the teaching credentials, but the backgrounds and reasons for teachers that apply to us.
