Question;Stolen Video Camera;You are the team leader of a four-person video crew from;Industrial Video Imaging (IVI). You are on your way to film the installation of;energy panels at a power generating station in rural West Virginia. The film;which will be approximately one-hour long, will be shown to the Solar Energy;Commission, a client with whom your Senior Management will be meeting in three;days.;On the morning of the installation, you discover that your;only camera, a Panatronic-880 digital video camera worth $8000, is missing from;your company van, parked outside your motel in Flatrock, WV. Upon inspection;you notice damage to the lock and latch on the van?s back door.;While speaking with the Flatrock Police Department, you are;asked to go in and fill out an incident report. Since you need to find a camera;and get to the installation site, you are caught between competing time;pressures, you designate a crew member to stay in Flatrock to complete the;police report, but you still must decide what to do about filming the;installation.;You have time to stop at a local discount store and purchase;a small, multipurpose digital video camera for about $700. While this solution;would allow you to get to the installation on time and film the process as;planned, the small, multipurpose camera might not capture some details that are;important information to the Solar Energy Commission (such as the setting of;the solar collectors? tracking arcs and the calibrating of the sensing;instruments). The other option is to drive to a larger city, about 60 miles;away, where you could purchase a new Panatronic-880. If you did this, however;you would arrive late, missing the first 20 minutes of the installation.;Directions;Weigh the pros and cons of both options: buying a less;expensive camera that may not capture the details requested by the client or;travelling farther to purchase a camera identical to the one stolen but missing;the first third of the installation process. Use critical thinking skills to;decide which course of action to take.;Assume that you have acted on your decision, that the video;was delivered on time, and that you are back in your office. Because the video;was lacking either quality or quantity (based on the decision you made), you;have been asked to explain the situation in Flatrock, the actions you took, and;why you took those actions at the time of the crisis. Write a memo to your;supervisor, Chris Campbell, East Region Field Manager for IVI. Assume your memo;also will be read by IVI Senior Management.;Elements of a desired response;A clear;well-organized description of the problem and explanation of your solution;Inclusion of;specific supporting details and evidence;Demonstration of a;clear purpose and awareness of the audience;Effective;development and sequencing of your ideas;Appropriate style;and tone for a business document;Standard written;English grammar, spelling, and punctuation;(Points: 100)
