HISTORY The Walt Disney Company started
in 1923 over in Burbank, California
Founders are Walt and his brother Roy Disney
First produced a series of short
live-action/animated films.
After several years of planning and construction,
Disney finally created its first amusement
park opened July 17, 1955 in Florida
The underlying principles that guide Disney
Corporation are innovation, quality, community,
optimism and decency.
You can dream, create, and build the most
wonderful place on earth, but it takes people
to make that dream a reality.
The company culture is very important in
keeping the employees engaged in the mission
set forth by The Walt Disney Company.
We will examine Walt Disney Company’s design,
structure and culture which all plays an
important role in Disney’s success.
Organizational Design “Dreaming in Team”.
Disney executives delegate to their employees
the power and liberty to use their creativity,
they not only foster the innovation,
they demand for it.
“Blue Sky”
is the name of the brainstorming
that all the personal and designers
specially do
to present their ideas,
discuss them
and get to an agreement.

Prevent foreign Company suffering
any negative impact due to Culture
Better control of risk, cost of
investment and return on investment

Doing successful business in China means having a good relationship network with government
Helping foreign company to understand barriers of doing business in China
make better decisions and help Disney culture avoid offending Chinese cultures
Strategy Lessons From Disney Their structure surrounds a
“direction” and “process”,
rather than the ideas of higher
Embed a selling point for your
workers and customers that no one can
compare to.
Creativity is key
Create a lifestyle in your design.
