Strategy that Wouldn't Travel
The first case discussed within the class was "The Strategy that Wouldn't Travel." In this case, a specialist was sent to correct problems at two separate plants. Her strategy worked at one plant, but not at the other. What I learned from this case and from our discussion was that separate situations, no matter how similar, may require different solutions. This was learned the hard way in the case, as the ideas to solve the problems at both plants only worked in the one, and not the other. Not all people think and react the same, so it was foolish to assume the "strategy" would solve problems anywhere. I now know to better analyze problems and handle each situation individually.
