Transcript of OB Final Case Study Presentation

Group D Hai Trieu Dang "Danny" Monneth Manalo Manpreet Rakhra Emily Smith
Travis Evoy Nicole Oliver Bren Renae A Mir Kiss Executive Summary Situational Analysis Problem/Opportunity Recommendations Alternative Solutions Thank you! Institute for Biomedical Problems (IBMP) conducted a study of human interaction and dynamics over an extended period of time
New Years- Alcoholic drinks resulted in a sexual assault and fist fight
Complaints brushed off by IBMP
Russians separated by the rest of the team due to kissing Canadian subject
Resulted in Canadian subject leaving the experiment External Environment Symptoms Contemporary Educational Programmes. (2003). State Research Center of the Russian Federation Institute for Biomedical Problems. Retrieved from http://www.cep.ru/imbp.shtml

McShane, S.L., & Steen, S.L. (2012). Canadian Organizational Behaviour (8th ed.). New York, NY: McGraw-Hill Ryerson. Internal Environment Customers:
International Space Agencies (ex. NASA and many others)
Supplier of the International Space Station
Groups at the institutions knowledge
Labor Supply:
Fairly inelastic
Large labour supply Task General International Main goals were to:
Discover, learn, generate applied knowledge and create ideas.
To accomplish they would:
Simulate, test, research, and experiment Objectives & Strategies Organizational Structure Anatoly Grigoryev was director of IBMP from 1988-2008
Participated/involved in many research projects
Graduated from IBMP
Well-educated, experienced & skillful Leadership Style IBMP controlled the simulation of the replica of the Mir Space Station
Every successful experiment done by IBMP uses control systems Control Systems Directors of IBMP Shareholders Uses a lot of technology for it's research to:
Test, experiment and simulate Product/Technology Institute in Moscow, Russia
Includes classes, testing facilities, and simulators Physical Facilities Students enrolled would want to stay
Good control system and social-glue
Sense making is found through experiments, teamwork, teaching and learning
3 functions of strong cultures
(McShane & Steen, 2012, p. 368). Corporate Culture Causes Symptoms
Sexual harassment claims
Fight and aggressive behaviour
Participants expected they could get outside help if they needed it
Several different people from several different countries coming together
None of them spoke English accurately
Lapierre's concern about the violence, the way Russia handled the situation
There was alcohol involved which escalated the situation Causes Lack of communication
Language of decision structure
Bicultural Audit
Role Perception
Relationship Conflict
Force field analysis Option 1 Option 2 Advantages:
Everyone would understand the people that they are working with better.
Added benefit of the general knowledge of learning about other cultures.
Time and money spent on teaching participants about the cultures of the people they will be working with. What? Teach participants about different cultures of the participants involved in simulation
All employees must know ALL rules & regulations
Sexual harassment and violence
Establish clear boundaries ASAP
Organizational Socialization, Pre-employment information and practices Why? Reduce value differences
Improve communication and understanding
Prepare the researchers what they are really in for Moscow Institute, similar to Canadian universities/institutions
Functional organizational structure
Follows professional procedures and rules
Uses team based structure for experiments and research
Decentralized within the team based structure
Everyone shares ideas, thoughts and research Stationed in Moscow, Russia
Agencies located worldwide for:
Research, experiments and simulation projects Technological:
Advancements largely affect IBMP
uses many different computers & space simulators for testing
Not a huge factor on the MIR Space Station
more important that it meets the scientific requirements of NASA
Drop in the economy = IBMP’s research slows down
Government chartered institution. Learn about cultures of the participants involved in the simulation Sexual Harassment and violence rules are established and understood by participants in the simulation Advantages:
No violence or harassment
Happy participants
Good environment
Inaccurate results from the simulation, if the purpose of the simulation is to view human interaction. References: Winter 2013 Case Study
