Instruc�ons

This assignment is worth 20% of your final grade and addresses Course Objectives 1 through 6. It gives you

an opportunity to apply organizational-level diagnostic processes and organizational development principles

to a real-life situation. You will also have the opportunity to assess the appropriateness of the intervention

chosen and propose alternative interventions based on the presenting problems and underlying issues

uncovered in the diagnosis. You must complete this assignment individually, without contacting other

students, and you may not use a paper or any part of a paper from a previous class or from another person. If

you have questions about this assignment, please post them in the Ask the Professor discussion forum so that

everyone can benefit from the answers.

Your task:

Please read the Ben & Jerry’s case, which can be found under eReserves.

Using the questions at the end of the case as a guide, solve the case study by analyzing what is presented and stating

specific actions that would best resolve major issues. Incorporate your answers to the questions in your analysis, as

outlined in the How to Solve a Case Study guidelines. These actions must reflect information in the case and the

environment facing the firm.

Your paper should be five to seven pages long, excluding cover and reference pages. Please follow APA guidelines for
