Organisational Structure of Fisker Automotive - February 4th, 2011

Fisker Automotive is an American automaker based in Anaheim, California [4]. The company's first product, the Fisker Karma is the world's first luxury plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). It debuted at the 2008 North American International Auto Show, creating the premium green car segment in which most major manufacturers have since announced they would compete.
The Karma has a claimed total range of 300 miles (483 km), the first 50 miles (80 km) of which is on tailpipe-emission free electric-only charge. After 50 miles (80 km) a gasoline range-extending engine turns on to add an additional 250 miles (403 km) of range.
An estimated 15,000 cars per year will be assembled by Valmet Automotive in Uusikaupunki, Finland.[5] Valmet currently builds the Porsche Cayman and Boxster sports cars for Porsche AG. The contract manufacturer was selected because a suitable North American facility could not be identified.
Fisker originally intended to start selling its Karma PHEV in late 2009, but, due to funding delays[citation needed], as of October 2010 it expects to begin customer deliveries in March 2011.[6] The Karma S hardtop convertible concept unveiled at the 2009 North American International Auto Show in Detroit is planned to arrive in 2012, at an as-yet unstated price.

Different people are motivated in different ways. And with these different motivations produce different actions. To understand the relationship between the two is the solution in determining what motivates them. An understanding of values will reduce conflicts, improve talent selection, increase retention, expand efficiency, increase productivity, and energize a group working toward common goals. With years of research and validation, PIAV reports provide accurate information of a person’s attitudes – Information that should be an integral part of human capital management efforts worldwide (Coughlin, 1993).

The DISC Report

Behavioral assessments (DISC) is a behavioral personality assessment. DiSC is based the work of William Moulton Marston, the developer of the D.I.S.C. Model. Marston's model examined the behavior of "normal" people and how their behavioral preferences are affected by their personality and the environment or situation they find themselves in. The DISC profile consists of the following four primary categories:

Dominant-- Demanding, decisive, direct, and fast-paced.

Influential-- Social, enthusiastic, fast-paced, and persuasive.

Steady- -Patient, sincere, calming, and dependable.

Compliant-- Accurate, precise, slow-paced, and analytical (

- Authority can be delegated. Responsibility cannot.

- To optimize effectiveness, decisions should be made at the lowest reasonable level in the organizational hierarchy consistent with capability and accountability.

- Authority to perform management cycle functions (planning, organizing, directing and controlling) and performance expectations should be clearly and appropriately defined at each management level.

- Overspecialization is the enemy of organizational effectiveness.
