For the Portfolio Project, you will analyze and synthesize data acquired from the Integrative Case, B.R. Richardson Timber Products Corporation (pp. 750-763 of the textbook), and present the findings in a paper.

  • Evaluation methods and planned changes

  • Describe the organizational design features – structure, HR processes, leadership present in the case study organization.
  • How would you assess Jack Lawler’s entry and contracting process at B.R. Richardson? Would you have done anything differently?
  • What theories or models would you use to make sense of the diagnostic data? How would you organize the information for feedback to Ben Richardson and Richard Bowman? How would you carry out the feedback process?
  • What additional information would you have liked Jack Lawler and his team to collect? Discuss what and why.
