I have a potential internal "big jump" opportunity which is what actually drove me to do some research and find Manager Tools - a treasure. I am trying to cram so to speak and ingest as much as possible quickly.
I work for an American Supply Chain company that is A. Currently going through a Merger and B. Looking to use this time to restructure the Sector I work in (Automotive Sector of our company). I am currently a the leader for this Sector in China, but the head of the AP Integration team (also my boss) has asked me to put together a proposal for an Asia Pacific organization, and what role I would play both in integration and going forward.
The basic areas I am looking to propose are:
1. Business Development
1a. Customer Solution Design
3. Customer Performance Management
4. Account Management
The challenges are Asia is such a large region with definate "hot spots" in China and India. Also a challenge is our organization had this role almost two years ago regionally but it failed.
So not only am I trying to come up with a convincing strategy/org chart that is in the best interest of the company, but also tell me boss role I would play in it, what resources I would need to succeed. Also, I will be talking to my boss about a new compensation package to go along with this new responsibility. Lots of stuff here!
Great opportunity, I am have the best background to do this for the company, but it will still have to be "sold" at very high levels.
I will appreciate any input on either the organization, or internal approach.
Thanks - Marc
