Performance Management and Rewards Individual Assignment (10 marks)
A major US electronics manufacturing services (EMS) company recently had to implement a corporate-wide business transformation process throughout the organization including overseas subsidiaries. This organizational development initiative is to enable the organization to transform its current capabilities in order to be more competitive in the industry. As companies move upstream with technology, they have also initiated various outsourcing activities to EMS companies. Besides mass production, EMS companies undertake services in design work (Original Design Manufacturer) and technical support activities especially after-sales on behalf of their clients products. In order to perform such higher value added activities, there needs to be change in the structure including the setup of a design center to cater to producing more creative design works for their clients.

These BUMs were responsible to actively seek new clientele for mass production businesses as well as partial development businesses in design and value-added services of technical support services. With this reorganization and creation of new positions, the management felt that there should be some follow-up actions from Human Resource Department in order to maintain internal equity within the organization through the salary structure.
