I am uploading the finished team assignment from last week(week 3), and currently need my part of the week 4 team assignment, so here is the information from the instructions, and some other team members as well: <“And please remember, Winnie, that my part of this team assignment will need to be limited to two or three paragraphs maximum”.>

think the two potential solution would be either leave the Whole Foods
to manage their business the same they did just under new management or
slowly introduce the changes instead of changing everything from the
very beginning? If you agree I can write the first point.

This is how we could start this assignment. Please take a look and make any changes you think need to be made.
After Amazon purchased Whole Foods they implemented changes
almost as soon as they took over. Some of their plans include inventory
changes, job cuts and eliminating most expensive items from shelves. The
management strategy for those two companies are totally different which
raised red flags and controversial discussions.
With every decision that is considered “wrong” comes
solutions that could make that decision better. When management
strategy changes it may cause the business to lose everything the
company worked for many years.
We believe that instead of changing everything as soon as
papers were signed Amazon should consider letting The Whole foods
operate the way they did before new owner took over and just closely
monitor their strategies. The Whole Foods exists for many years that
proves they knew what they were doing and giving them a chance to
continue that would make the relationship better. Another way to
implement changes would be to slowly introduce employees with new ways
of operating. Giving people time to adjust and regroup is important, not
forcing new operating system would gain peoples trust.
