Articulating the problem: Our shareholder value has now dropped to $0.26 and we are now in last place. Our shareholder values keeps decreasing and we can not seem to get it back up since we had gone insolvent.
Analysis to explain the problem: Peter has given us advice multiple times and we always try to make adjustments based off of his comments. We have also emailed smartsims help multiples times, as well as been given advice from our parent company. We cannot figure out where we are going wrong, but we need to figure it out fast since we are running out of time.
Theory to explain the problem: We are not putting in enough effort to figure out the real reason our SHV keeps dropping. We thought we had a clear understanding going into this simulation but our SHV has proven us wrong. We try to create calculations, come up with theories why are sales are dropping and make educated assumptions for why our shareholder value is so low, but we need a clear and definite answer to help us move forward.
Action on the problem: This coming week we are going to sit down as a team and figure out what our exact problem is and figure out what our next move needs to be. We have agreed that we will sit down for as many hours as it takes to figure out what we can do to get our company shareholder back up before the end of the semester. We will also be emailed smartsims to try and get as much advise as they are allowed to give. Another aspect that we are going to focus on is making the communication to each department clearer. If one department is changing something, they need to tell the other department that it will affect so they can adjust accordingly. Overall, we are hoping for a better result next rollover and we are not giving up.
