With mike bikes coming to an end. I've noticed how much our group has evolved as a collective, from the start we had no idea on what to expect from the simulation. But as of today, I think we can say we have made some ground in reaching our goals as a team. Initially, this journal was going to be about how we managed to dominate our world in terms of shareholder value (1st Place) .However, after reading Christensen, C. M. (2010). How will you measure your life? Christensen had briefly outlined the importance of ‘humility’ towards other people this involved learning from people who may not be as smarter than you – I thought this idea was interesting as I now look at our world (India) as a learning opportunity , as oppose to competition.
Moving on, looking over our progress as a team I like to think that we have successfully developed the ‘tools of cooperation’ that was needed to build a culture. (Christensen, 2010) defined these as the extent to which members of the organization agree on what they want from their participation in the enterprise, and the extent to which they agree on what actions will produce the desired results. This week among many our group meetings was solely based on a specific problem that we all agreed on, and the actions we wanted to take --- drawing back on Daudelin (1996) the problem we faced this week was the calculating the right amount of SCU units. Our solution as a group was that we HR department needed to calculate how much money from our profit was going to be invested in order to solve this problem -- from the roll-over our results were better than we had expected.
Overall, although this is the last learning journal, I like to think that the learning doesn't stop here as (Christensen, 2010) states :
“if you have a humble eagerness to learn something from everybody, your learning opportunities will be unlimited”.
