the Nadler-Tushman Congruence Model Essay

[pewslideshow slidename=anim2]

Each of the diagnostic models presented in Module One had particular strengths and weaknesses. In my opinion, the Nadler-Tushman Congruence Model is particularly strong in terms of Inputs. Therefore, for this part of the case, I would like you to analyze PetMeds’ key inputs.

Start by reading the article by Nadler and Tushman.(I WILL UPLOAD FILE) This will tell you how to go about completing such an analysis. The description in the module one Falletta reading will not be enough and lead to a shallow analysis.

Remember that inputs include:

Environment

Resources

Organizational history

Strategy

You will not be able to identify all of the inputs in such a short paper, but try to

First identify PetMeds’ most critical inputs in each of the first three categories and justify WHY they are critical.
Consider how they impact the organization and any problems associated with insuring their availability.
Explain what effect the inputs from one category have on inputs from the other categories.
Then discuss the organization’s strategy and classify it according to Porter’s three generic strategies. How well does this strategy fit with the environmental, resource and historical inputs you identified?
Probably the most critical part of this paper is the final question. Be sure to give this serious consideration. You must support your analysis with objective evidence. Sources of information for the entire project may include interviews, organizational documents and reports, articles in newspapers and trade publications, and personal knowledge (though you should corroborate this when possible.) Be sure to cite your sources and provide a bibliography for each module’s case.

TIP: The “Optional Material” provided below contains several journal articles that take an open systems view of organizational analysis. If you want to get a “feel” for what comes out of this type of analysis, feel free to check some of them out.

Write up your case in a 3-5 page paper and submit it by the end of the module.

Optional Material

What follows is a sampling of six articles that approach organizational analysis and/or diagnosis from an open systems perspective. They demonstrate that the principles of open systems apply to a wide variety of organizational concerns – from community development efforts to supply chains.

All of these articles are available through the Touro College Library system. The specific databases are indicated following “Source”.
