Coming in to week eight our team was beginning to worry about our SHV, before the last rollover we had been sitting below the SHV that we initially begun with and could not figure out where we were going wrong. This begun to cause conflict within our team as some members begun to argue that others ideas hadnt worked and therefore we should try their ideas. However it was hard for us because we were failing to stick with our agreed upon strategy, therefore the main problem we faced was that we were going away from our designated strategy.
This weeks reading is all about managers learning from normal working experiences and turning this into effective management and therefore business performance. I think this reading has a strong correlation to what we have achieved with "Bob's Bikes" albeit to a lesser extent. As explained above we faced a conundrum when we started to go off strategy, however we used our previous experiences to benefit us and develop a good business strategy that enableed us to make a huge jump in our SHV by more than 20. By realising the root of our issues, following our strategy that we had set from the beginnning that aligns our goals with how we want to get places, it helped us to turn out some really good results.
Referring to the analysis stage of both Daudelins & the Blooms taxonomy readings we beleive that this is the most exciting stage of mikes bikes. Finding why an issue is occurring and then figuring out why it is happening and how we can fix it is both interesting and fun and when you get a good result from your hard work it is really satisfying. I cant wait to see the results of the next few rollovers as we try to take over China!
