Running head: SIMULATION REPORT 1 Simulation Report Snehal Patel MBA-504 Strategic Leadership Ινστρυχτορ Προφ. Σηαϖν Ιρελανδ June 7, 2011 Critical Review of Simulation: Simulation is the technique of representing the real world with a computer program. On Tuesday, 31 st May 2011, we all met for a simulation for our strategic leadership class. Before the class started, we were not aware of what was going to happen. We all were excited about the simulation. I had a little knowledge about it, as Shawn had briefed us in the class. We were divided into four groups each consisting of six to seven members. The members in my team were Aakash Gupata, Kaushik Tilak, Sai Krishan, Haitham and Baldeep Singh. We six had

very good collaboration as a team. As I have known my team members for the last two months, we all have a very good understanding. Before we could start the simulation, we had to think of the team name: we thought of a crazy name, which we got from the mouse, which we saw while working on computer for the simulation, and from that moment, we called ourselves the Dynex. We, as a team, had to decide on a strategy about how we are going to work in terms of making decisions. We thought that we would read the questions first, think, analyse and then choose the correct option with a proper explanation. Then we would put the option in front of the team so that we could come to a consensus. It was not hard for me, as I believe I am a person who will allow others to talk and present my views in such a way that people will like them. The only thing affects my decision is that I sometimes think with my heart and not my mind. It may be because of my culture or my background. In the simulation, we got brief introduction about the company that manufactures mobotics and the company’s sales were going down, as revenues were dropping, costs was rising and people were the working hard on wrong things. When we started with the simulation, we had to choose a plan that we would select for the company based on customer focus, product focus, and operations focus. In view of the fact that we did not have very much information about the company, we got a general idea from the introduction that the company would be successful if it would put more stress on operational excellence. There was competition in the market; we allocated equal points for operations focus and product focus as 40 and 20 points for customer intimacy. Moreover, we thought this company would perform better if we choose to focus on operations and product because the company was in the mobotic where the buyer spend big amount for the product and operation because they have to

control cost of the product and man power of the company, so by I was think that company should be product as Apple. When we started with round one we were thinking too much about the decision as well as wasting time on unnecessary things like writing the names of the directors of various departments. Later on, though we know more about the time we had to be quicker in making a decision.

    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.
