Managing by design questions:
- A popular form of organizing is to have employees work on what they want in whatever department they choose so that motivation and enthusiasm stay high?
I agree, because employees are take these positions as their experiences and their experiences came from hard working and studying so if an employer put someone in a positions the person will be uncomfortable so his/her output will not be what the employer was expect it.
- Committees and task forces whose members are from different departments are often worthless for getting things done?
I disagree, because if committees and task forces are not getting things done by exchanging data and the knowledge the employee from one department will not getting things done as committees and task forces from different departments.
- Top managers are smart to maintain organizational control over the activities of key work units rather than contracting out some work unit tasks to other firms?
I disagree, because every firm has to be focus on its work on specific things and give the other things to who can deal with. And make it flexibility and more rapid.

That will pull me down with other team member by giving us a bad decisions or decisions. So he/she will out of our thinking.
Describe the application context?
The application context shows how I can measure myself on working environment. Is it with team member or by individually working? And how I can I accept unsuccessful work with team. However I prefer to work with group and I have to accept the good things and trying to solve the bad things,
- Identify performance measures for your plan?
I identify my plan performance measures as my group whom I am working with in order to achieve our goal by sharing our ideas and thinking as one mind. On the other hand if I am working alone I will measure my performance as my work because it is under my control and my responsibility to develop myself in order to reach my own goals as individual work and goal.
