Waiverider and simplicity…..

I feel that waiverider dont have much to worry about. One of the directors said that if we change the contracter then the cost can come down by i think 30 %, also the redundant staff can be used in expanding into other markets and the leisure market is forecasted to be on a rise soon. It seems like all is good for the company if it makes a few changes.

Is it just me who finds this case straight forward or am I missing something......

  1. the director may be too optimistic to have their own comments in their own positions. You can find those directors have some argument and different opinion(sales & production team). So things are not that simple. I think when consider about the strategy, it’s alwasy tough decision as the future is hard predict. But the good thing is we can make assumption here( like what we do in FACS module). But the reality never runs as we predict. I think this PMA is very hard coz we need to simulat the sitation by ourselves. make stories and try to make it logical by finding theories to support our asumption.

  3. Not really a story, but to make this clear. In my PMA I made an assumption that there is some kind of a gap between the top management and the employees, then I brought in some theories or approaches that should be coached to solve this issue and have the CEO/Managers involve people more so that they feel as they are contributing to the company.

    So, as Yin said. you can make assumptions, so don’t take much time on the actual information we had in class. Assume there are leadership issues and try to solve them using leadership theories or approaches that could be used to improve the quality of leadership.

    Personally, I am using EFQM, Deming’s, Lewin’s Leadership styles and I am thinking of including ISO as well.

    The only thing I didn’t understand in the PMA is how we are supposed to coach the second director to support deployment. I am not sure what this means and I will try to check with Paul about it when I send for Feedforward.

    Hopefully my comments explained it a bit :)

  4. -Well first the guy himself is not sure
    -Second is just one persons opinion
    -third he can reduce the cost of an specific process, if I`m not mistaken, not of the whole production
    -the thing is not about bringing quick results to the company, but changing it in the long term. This 30% would be helpful, but the company itself would not deeply change.
