Task 1- Organizational Management
A1. Bill Bailey
Bill Bailey is opposing the merger of the Opera with the Utah Symphony for several reasons. Using the Adam’s Equity Theory, Mr. Bailey will have the opportunity to persuade the members of the board to reject the proposed merger.
Adam’s Equity Theory states that employees perform at a higher rate if they feel that they are being treated fairly. Equity is obtained when a worker perceives that the reward for the amount of work performed is equal to that of a relevant worker. Negative inequity is perceived by employees as when the relevant worker receives greater rewards for the same work. Positive inequity is perceived as the relevant worker ...view middle of the document...

These actions have been taken to create a financially viable organization. Meanwhile, the symphony has moved in the opposite direction. The symphony has given the members full-time status as employees, paying a one year contract with full time wages. The merger will most likely be perceived by opera employees as an inequitable situation in which they are punished for the failings of the symphony. Their perception will most likely be perceived in this way as the symphony operations were mismanaged while the opera has been managed in a fiscally responsible manner.
The merger of these organizations would most likely result in animosity from the opera employees. In most cases, the discontent with perceived inequity leads to negative outcomes for the organization. If the opera employees feel that they are not being treated fairly they may seek some sort of action to regain equity. These actions will generally occur in the form of employee’s quitting, or job performance reductions as a result of poor motivation for continued productivity.
A2. Scott Parker
Mrs. Abravanel is opposing the merger of the symphony with the opera. Scott Parker is tasked with convincing Mrs. Abravanel that the merger is in the best interests of the symphony. By using the Goal Setting motivational theory, Mr. Parker has the opportunity to convince Mrs. Abravanel that the merger is not only good for the symphony, but that it will allow the symphony to continue operating at all.
Goal Setting is the motivational theory that involves establishing specific, achievable, and time-targeted goals. Mr. Parker should show Mrs. Abravenel that there are specific goals that the symphony would achieve by merging with the opera.
The major goal for the symphony is simply to remain operational. Due to the lack of funding and the lower performance attendance, the symphony is in a financial circumstance that will not allow the continuation of operations for much longer. Since the symphony is in such dire financial need, it should be explained to Mrs. Abravanel that something must be done to keep operations moving and funded. The alternative would be to declare bankruptcy and cease operations.
By merging the symphony and the opera, the symphony would be able to take advantage of the financial aspects of the opera. By combining the financial resources of the two groups, the symphony would be able to continue operations.
It is also important to explain to Mrs. Abravanel that the merger between the symphony and the opera is currently in negotiations so that each entity is able to prosper and no entity is unduly damaged either financially or in regard to operations. It should also be explained that all parties are committed to the merger talks. All parties seem to realize that the financial stability of the opera will allow the symphony to move toward financial stability.
A3. Power
There are two types of power a person may wield. The two types are socialized power and personalized power....
