MGMT415-1202B-05 Global Operations Management Assignment

Resolved Question:

MGMT415-1202B-05 Global Operations Management
Assignment Name: Unit 1 Discussion Board
Deliverable Length: 4-5 paragraphs
Details: The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week. At the end of each unit, DB participation will be assessed based on both level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion.

At a minimum, each student will be expected to post an original and thoughtful response to the DB question and contribute to the weekly dialogue by responding to at least two other posts from students. The first contribution must be posted before midnight (Central Time) on Wednesday of each week. Two additional responses are required after Wednesday of each week. Students are highly encouraged to engage on the Discussion Board early and often, as that is the primary way the university tracks class attendance and participation.

The purpose of the Discussion Board is to allow students to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content and the DB question. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB will be accepted after the end of each week.

This is from my peers:

 

You chose two very good examples of companies that demonstrate global operations management. There is a difference between Wal-Mart and my example in Nike. Wal-Mart is a wholesale producer offering a variety of products. Their approach is different than Nike in that the shoe manufacturer simply offers one product. The barriers Wal-Mart experienced in emerging in Germany probably wouldn't exist for Nike. The size, variety, and products offered makes a difference as to how these issues play out in global operations. Great post it was very well written and informative.

Expert:  BMW MD replied 2 years ago.
Thank you for your thoughtful post and reply to my own addition to the discussion. I agree that Nike would likely have an easier time in Germany with one major type of product; however, I think that is not the only reason. Walmart failed mostly because of the way they do business. When you think of being in a Walmart store, you remember the sort of in-your-face type sales style, where they are so happy and willing to help. This is what turned the people in Germany off and ultimately caused its demise there. If Walmart had only done better scouting and preparation before looking to compete in the German market, they could have been better equipped to deal with the less friendly approach.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have done extensive work in the form of management courses and Wal-Mart as an entity. Not only that but I used to be employed with them 20 some years ago. Do you think that a business will face varying oppositions when entering into varying markets? Do you know of any other names that Wal-Mart considers in other countries? Do you know why Wal-Mart would steal from its own when creating stores so close in proximity? Did you know that they also create Ma & Pa stores within an area when they already have numerous outlets in a pinned area? Why do you think that cultural sensitivity didn't work so well for Wal-Mart in Germany? Thanks, great post! Take Care, Bobby Baker
