Comedic Strategic Management Experience (Paired Comparison Matrix)

Purpose

To explore strategic management issues through the lens of culture and satire.

Instructions

  1. Research Dilbert or the Office if you are not familiar with them. Know the characters.
  2. Review a Dilbert comic (from those provided in files) or an episode from the TV series The Office that concerns a strategic or management issue.
  3. Research possible solutions to the issue presented.
  4. Research how to do a paired comparison matrix (https://www.lucidchart.com/pages/process-mapping).
  5. Prepare the required analysis.

Analysis

  1. Provide a brief summary of the strip/episode and the characters involved. If you are not familiar with the characters, do some research on Dilbert or the Office.
  2. What are the management or strategic issues presented in the strip or episode?
  3. Research six sources on dealing with the issue presented. Three sources are to be from the textbook and three from external research. 
  4. Discuss each source (at least one substantive paragraph per source). Apply the source to the issue under consideration.
  5. Discuss how the issue impacts the overall strategic success of Dilberts company or the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company (the company in the Office).
  6. Present and explain three possible solutions to the issue presented. Be bold and creative (but realistic). The solutions should be game changers and impact the organization as a whole.  A few pointers. Do not present a tool as a solution (e.g. a SWOT or PESTLE analysis or using the AFI framework). Do not present a solution that only impacts one person (e.g. sending the Pointy Hair Boss or Michael to management training). Do not propose firing the PHB or Michael. Move beyond solutions you might have offered in your earlier CMR courses. Think high level and strategically.
  7. What are the pros and cons of each solution?
  8. Decide on one of the proposed solutions and explain your recommendation.
  9. Identify and explain three actions steps to implement your recommendation.
  10. Prepare a Paired Comparison Matrix for your three possible solutions. Determine which option is best by conducting this exercise.
  11. Conclude with an exploration of what you have learned from the exercise.
