OCI 1. Introduction The organization I selected for the OCI is called Qubee, Augere. Augere was established in September 2007 by an experienced team of global telecom executives with the vision of delivering 'Broadband for All'. It is committed to achieving this through the delivery of fast, reliable broadband Internet services in emerging markets using wireless networks. Augere has an established leadership team in place with many years' experience in the telecommunications industry. Since its formation, the Company has successfully raised more than $300m in funding. Augere's first commercial wireless network was launched under the Qubee brand in Pakistan in July 2009. The Bangladesh network closely followed this in October 2009. Today, Augere operates wireless networks comprising more than 800 radio base stations and serves about 125,000 broadband customers (“About Augere”, n.d.) I worked in Qubee, Augere for almost two years and have strong and impactful impressions about the way that the organizational culture of this organization is, which can be interpreted through the OCI results. 2. Current Culture The Organizational culture of Augere is youth oriented, as youth is their basic target market. There is an open door policy, an employee with a complaint or issue can walk straight up to the senior manager and discuss his/her reservation, which creates strong interpersonal and

OCI communication problems and keeps the employee from developing feelings of resentment and anger. 2-A. Cultural Type: a) According to the OCI test results, primary style of Qubee is Achievement oriented with a 91 percentile score, whereas, the typical ideal score for achievement style is 78%. That means that employees are expected to set specific, measurable, and timely goals and achieve those goals. Employees are encouraged and motivated to stay enthusiastic about their goals. This score is truly reflective of Qubee’s organizational style. There used to be weekly staff meetings on Fridays during the break where our senior management came to sit down and have lunch with everyone in the marketing department and they used to encourage us to be enthusiastic and feel like this is your home and you want the best for it. Furthermore, there used to be intrinsic rewards like “employee of the month”, “letter of acknowledgement” and accolades for employees who achieved their targets. That instigated high need for achievement in the entire organization. Qubee’s Secondary style, with 90 percentile on scoreboard, is Self-Actualizing. According to the test that means qubee’s culture, as organization should be one that values creativity, quality, and that which encourages focusing on both task accomplishment and individual growth side by side.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
