Module Five Report Guidelines and Rubric

Overview

As a middle manager, you have already recommended an innova�on op�on (incremental or discon�nuous) to the organiza�on from

the course scenario. However, one of the organiza�on’s key luxury-market compe�tors in passenger vehicles recently launched a

prototype of a fully autonomous luxury sedan. It has announced that it plans to bring the model to market within the next two

years. The organiza�on wants to prepare for the challenge.

You have been tasked with crea�ng a report recommending the most suitable process for managing innova�on in a changing

external environment (for example, a key compe�tor coming up with a new product). You will also recommend how cross-func�onal

teams can work effec�vely within the process. Lastly, you will address the concerns of the key stakeholders about introducing

innova�on management processes in a changing environment.

Prompt

Based on this scenario, create a process recommenda�on report. Remember to tailor the informa�on for the target audience, your

stakeholders. Your report should include the following points:

1. Iden�fy the most suitable process for managing innova�on in a changing external environment. You must consider the

following processes and briefly describe all four processes before you offer your recommenda�on:

Stage-gate

Agile

Lean

Discover-iterate-pivot

2. Explain your ra�onale for your recommenda�on.

Describe the advantage of your chosen process over others.

Explain how it can address the changing external environment.

3. Explain recommenda�ons for ensuring cross-func�onal team effec�veness in the chosen process.

How would you measure team success at each stage of a project?

How would you review and implement changes coming out of success measurements?

How do you know when you are done with the project?

4. Describe your plan for addressing the concerns of your key stakeholders. Select two of the following departments whose

directors will be your audience: research and development (R&D), finance, human resources (HR), or marke�ng.

Iden�fy key stakeholders who will use the report in your organiza�on.

List at least two concerns they may have about processes for managing innova�on.

Explain your response to their concerns.

Submit a 2- to 3-page Word document with 12-point Times New Roman font, double spacing, and one-inch margins. If references

are included, they should be cited in APA format. Consult the Shapiro Library APA Style Guide for more informa�on on cita�ons.
