The organizational issue in Ford Inc.
Poor communication is one of the challenges that has faced Ford Inc. in the recent past.
Communication plays an essential role in any organization as it makes it possible for a company
to uphold its standards and deliver quality to all stakeholders. In the recent past, poor
communication in the marketing department saw Ford carry out an ad that encouraged violence
against women (Heath, 47). In the ad, three women were being bundled to the trunk of a new
Ford hatchback. There was public uproar prompting the company to withdraw the ad and issue a
public apology.
Negative impacts of poor communication
Unmet expectations are one of the challenges associated with the issue and hinder
organizations efficiency. The inability of employees and management to communicate between
and among themselves makes it hard for the company to carry out its operations efficiently
(Heath, 88).
Poor communication in the organization will as well be a cause of stress in employees. It
will be hard for employees to concentrate on their work making them less productive (Heath,
SURNAME 2
123). That way, organizational efficiency will be threatened in that it will be hard to meet the set
standards in production.
It is, therefore, necessary that the company adopts effective measures that will make it
possible to settle communication issues (Heath, 186). That way, its ability to create value for its
customers will not be under any threat.

productivity and that you, the consultant, will review and
resolve.

• What are the organization’s areas of weakness? Use your
research on organizational behavior approaches to corporate
culture, diversity, teamwork, and motivational strategies.
4) Propose Solutions
