1. Executive Summary (if you use a number 1., then you must have a number 2.) Riordan Manufacturing is a global plastics manufacturer employing 550 people with projected annual earnings of $46 million. The company is a closely held Delaware corporation with its headquarters in San Jose, California. Riordan Manufacturing Inc. goals are to provide quality products, with excellent customer satisfaction, and manufactured in a highly creative teamwork setting.

Perhaps one of the most critical flaws in the organizational structure is the fact that there is no Affirmative Action Plan in place in the company. Lack of women in the executive ranks tends to justify this determination.
