What are the underlying and wider case study problems and key issues facing the SCC organization?
The SCC organization is facing challenges both from the external and internal environment. The main challenge facing this organization is a financial crisis relating to the loss of jobs. The hard economic challenges from the external environment are making the SCC organization face problems relating to huge costs relating to the operations of the organization. These high costs are forcing the organization to making losses in the future. The problem of cost management in this organization is causing a lot of financial stress in SCC. This, therefore, subjected SCC to high risks of retrenching workers in order to manage the alarming increase in the operation costs. Most employees are likely to lose jobs in SCC organization in order to enable the organization manages its costs in the organization.
The organization also face the problem of labor management in relation to staffing costs. The staffing costs are very in SCC organization making it difficult to operate smoothly in the market. The costs of paying for labor in SCC is becoming unproductive, therefore, high chances of failure of the organization due to low profits (Cameron, 2012:18). The high levels of staffing costs are likely to lead to the failure of the organization. The high costs of labor are dangerous to the operation of SCC in the long run.
Political forces have also affected the operation of the SCC in meeting its goals and organization. The politicians are after their own personal interests, thereby, leading to the general failure in the organization. The interest of the politicians is a hindrance to the management of SCC especially in relation to the demand of social services.
The problems relating to social demands makes the organization difficult to operate effectively in the market. The aspects relating to social demand leads to very high operational costs in the organization. The social costs in SCC are very high leading to low productivity in this organization. The non-profit oriented activities in SCC are causing a lot of management challenges in SCC. The mismanagement of the social capital in SCC also led to difficulties in productivity and performance of the SCC.
