Learning new theories and frameworks is usually a burden on a person to understand and imagine its application in real life instances. However , the Gobal Technology simulation circumstance was a wonderful chance for attaching what we have learnt (Why, What, and How organizational alter works) as to what we have reviewed on the first day through cases and articles. Via my standpoint, the ruse gave the team three key added principles. First, as it took place for the second day time of the EMBA in addition to being introduced to the new group members, each member of the staff got the possibility of that great teamwork activity with his team. Thus, that allowed for being aware of each other better through the involvement in the discussion posts and ideas sharing. Second, the simulation gave they the exposure and obstacle of being accountable for putting a company on a modify process, which required that all the members should be aligned for the cause. Third, we have discovered the importance of working in a specified time period and finances, which are of equal importance to the alter processes and tactics collection. Finally, personally, before the training course and simulation, I thought that the company change is about the changes and what will be applied. Nevertheless , now, I realized that the act period including the adjustments required ought to be implemented after several core phases that direct the success and also the failure with the organizational transform.

Quite simply, Global Tech was suffering from external alterations in the market threatening their survivals, which essential them to modify their approach. The organization has been paranoid of their technical skills and of becoming the market frontrunners years ago in the technology of GPS, nevertheless they have disregarded the market shifts in the buyer needs and satisfaction.
Making use of the Mckinsey 7-S unit (See Show 2) upon Global Technology simulation, we have formulated our plan in line with the strategy, composition, systems, abilities and distributed values and beliefs that will help in the organizational change.
